      Night and day upgrade from Pioneer 8200nex

      Even though this probably supposed to be a step “down” from my Pioneer, this runs much better. I love having the voice option button I can press to get to Siri at any time. This is in case the volume from the speakers is too loud, or if there is a lot of sound in the cabin. I’ve noticed Siri works better when pressing the voice button, however, this appears to be on the Apple side after iOS upgrades as I noticed the same issue with my Pioneer. Some might consider this a drawback, but you cannot access the settings unless you are in park with the parking brake on. However, if you download the tune it app, you can adjust all the audio settings there such as the EQ, and most everything else related to that without having to use the brake. I would HIGHLY recommend going on YouTube and learning the user interface before buying this unit so you know what to expect. I’ve owned several Alpine units in the past, all single DIN, and this is a more time consuming user interface than I’ve dealt with before. At this price point it would be nice for most people to have more than nine bands for the EQ, but it also lets you adjust the Q level to how much you want it to adjust the surrounding frequencies. Most head units don’t offer that. For ease of use, I’d recommend using the tune it app where it will categorize the nine bands into bass, mid, treble. It also lets you choose different frequencies instead of being stuck at one frequency like most head units. This is a parametric EQ as opposed to a graphic EQ. The difference is in the eye of the beholder and there are lots of online forums and videos that go over the differences. I use a separate Alpine H800 DSP/EQ and found I needed to adjust the bands on it more for this unit than the Pioneer, but the Pioneer I replaced was one of the worst car audio investments I’ve made in almost 15 years. I sent it off for multiple warranty issues at once after only a few months of ownership. On the warranty site, they give a list of specific issues to pick from and my unit had more than one of the specific issues. So, I’ll take that trade off. CarPlay is excellent and easy to see. I mean, CarPlay is a standard interface regardless of the unit, but some manufacturers take longer than others to navigate through the menu. I’ve noticed after having mine installed that I have to wait until after the unit finishes booting before I can hook up my phone and have it switch into CarPlay mode. Otherwise it seems to just charge it. However, disconnecting and reconnecting the cable fixes that. There may even be a firmware update available or down the road that addresses that. I like how the physical buttons on the head unit are simple to know the functions of. Alpine has made some improvements over what they have done in the past where there were so many buttons that it would involve a higher learning curve to figure out what they all do. This unit includes a button that brings you directly to navigation mode within CarPlay (or Android Auto if you use that). That’s a big time saver. Even with the identical back up camera installed, that’s a vast improvement over my 8200nex. The picture is clearer and it doesn’t cut out. Make sure you read the description and specs for this head unit. This doesn’t come with an optical drive for CDs or DVDs, but the Lightning to HDMI adapter more than makes up for that. I’ve had no issues with glare at all even with full sunlight. Not blinding at night either. I had this installed by Geek Squad as part of the package deal. I didn’t have the tech install the satellite radio, so I can’t speak to that feature for this specific unit. Long story short, the AIFF files from my iPhone 7 Plus sound better since it isn’t an over the air source and they won’t drop out during bad weather. I don’t want to potentially relive the bad customer service of satellite radio I had in years past. I had used Alpine almost exclusively until someone recommended the Pioneer and I’ll never go back. An added note, before the 8200nex, I also had a 4200nex that had identical issues, and also ran slower. From my personal experiences, it could just be that whole year of that NEX series had issues as other reviews mention it as well. They may have improved the performance within the alphabet soup of the names of newer models. But when the flagship model became a sinking ship, I decided I was done throwing away money on the Pioneer units and was ready to go back to ole reliable. But, at this price point, I’d recommend getting the protection plan regardless of what brand you buy.

      I love this stereo receiver! I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not, being an aftermarket product and all but it is perfect. It doesn’t look like an aftermarket product at all. It fits in my 2013 Jeep Wrangler flawlessly. Love having Apple Car Play and being able to send and receive texts via voice commands. The only downfall is that in order to use Apple Car Play, you have to have it connected by USB cord. Otherwise, you can still use bluetooth and handsfree calling wirelessly. I HIGHLY recommend you let the geek squad install it. They know what they are doing and it takes them essentially no time to install it. You won’t be sorry.

      Apple Car Play/ Android Go, HD radio, Sirus XM, 7 inch screen display, pixel perfect omg this is an amazing product! You better jump on the band wagon because this is the Bees Knees. Two HDMI ports and Bluetooth. I am enjoying this radio a lot! If you are searching for a radio that is a double din. This is the one to buy! Don’t mess around with Pioneer Nex, Kenwood is alright, Alpine is the best to own! You get what you paid for and that is very true. There is another Alpine coming out with a 9 inch screen. If you want that one then buy it, but this one is available now and does the same thing as the 9 inch one. If you are reading this then you are making the wise decision and choosing high quality.

      Alpine iLX-207 is Worth Considering!!

      I had reviewed several other comparable double dins in this price range, however, this one had just a bit more capability and expandability so i chose the Alpine iLX-207. After some reading and familiarizing myself with this unit, I have to say that it sounds amazing even with factory speakers. Don't let the relative low 16w continuous fool you, this is a clean amp (<0.5 THD). paired with a small sub this is all you'll need! Whether you pair and iPhone or Android you will not be disappointed at it's capabilities here either although it seems to like the iPhone a little better (smoother operation). At least compare all the specs before you pull the trigger!!

      Excellent headunit

      I’ve been installing car audio for 30 years now as a hobby. I’ve exclusively used Alpine head-units for the last 25 years. This is bar none the best hu I’ve had out of the lot of them. That’s saying something considering the quality of the old school Alpine stuff. It functions very well with my iPhone with 16,500 songs! The handsfree is a must in today’s overly distracted driving world. Install was simple and I don’t intend to watch videos so I simply wired the parking brake to a ground wire for ease of reaching the tuning features. At $599 it’s a bargain!

      Nice radio but a little pricey

      To start off I like this radio. HDMI and usb connections. Should have and extra one of both considering size of unit. App integration works well but wish it was wireless. I have big hands so the touchscreen settings are a little hard to use at times but the tune it app is a lifesaver and a great way to tune. I can also play my Netflix. I really bought this unit for its dsp processing features and they work great. Don’t believe it’s a 4volt radio as my other radio had more preout drive it seems and it to is an alpine 4volt. Got it on sale but still pricey.

      The BEST headunit!

      I could leave a 2,000 word review but I won’t. What I will say is that I’ve exclusively used alpine headunits for nearly 30 years as a car audio fanatic. They’ve never let me down and this one is no exception. I upgraded from a Alpine iXA W407 to the Alpine iLX-207. This unit works great in Apple CarPlay, has good voice recognition and has crystal clear hands free calling. It is also the best sounding headunit I’ve ever had for digital music. The TuneIt app certainly helps in this realm. I could go on and on.... highly recommended!

      It doesn’t get much better than this unit! HD radio, Sirius XM and CarPlay will make you forget about needing CD’s. I highly recommend getting a brake bypass as almost all settings (even sound settings) are locked without being parked. It only has one usb input (which will be used for your phone if using CarPlay) but it does have Bluetooth if you need to connect another device at the same time. Really pleased with this unit overall, you can’t go wrong.
