    Took a long time to understand the setup/function

    Appears to work well – it’s good to listen to my pod casts etc. hands free without an ear piece. However, did find it hard to set up as I found the manual somewhat confusing and some of the features are not as well supported as I would have expected. For instance the auto Bluetooth pairing worked ok for iPhone but not at all for Android. I guess that when they said that it was compatible with “Moto G” they really did mean just the 1st generation running Jelly Bean (4.x), because I have not got USB working with my 5th generation Moto G running Nougat (7.x) at all yet. Whereas the only problems we had with iPhone5/6 were fixed by changing the USB lead that we used. The only other problem I’ve had is with making an outgoing voice call with the Moto G5plus – once the number is dialed the phone goes to “private mode” which means that you have to either pickup up the phone to carry on with the conversation or touch the phone to reconnect to Bluetooth. I think that this is probably a problem on the phone as it didn’t happen with the iPhone. Other than this, the HD Radio works ok on the driveway, but not so well on the road here in Pleasanton CA (which probably explains why there are not so many car stereos with HD radios) and the manual could really do with a rewrite.

    Corpus Christi, TX WORST Expirance Every

    This unit seem to be a super radio for an older truck, however, the installer at Best Buy who suggested this unit did not check the box and we have no remote that was supposed to have come with the unit... The unit drains our "brand new battery" if we do not start the truck and run the engine at least 20 minutes every day. When the unit was only a week old, we called the BB installer and told him what was going on, he said to bring the truck back in and he would put the old unit back in... We reminded him the unit in the trash can (at our request), so he said that was not his problem and would not all us to speak to the store manager, he stated he was the manager over the installation department. We left Corpus Christi as we were there on deployment to assist with Hurricane Harvey and our time was up. Little did I know that Best Buy was so untrustworthy,

    This is a great receiver. I did a lot of research between different models and brands. I initially bought this with the plan of buying a double din down the road and giving this to my girlfriend, but I'm extremely happy with this. I might hold off on the double din a little bit longer. If you compare specs, you'll see like I did that this is a great buy. The one thing I didn't expect was the EQ. It is not your typical (Bass, Treble and Mids). It has at least 12 different ranges to adjust, and a crossover to adjust your tweeter with about 6 different ranges. Overall, this is a GREAT buy, and anyone that gets it won't be disappointed.

    Lots of different functions, I wired the harness so I could just plug it in to the factory connector. Which made it very easy. Only thing was trying to run the USB cables through the dash to the console. That was a pain. But once it was done it looks good. Recommend this unit if it's still available, if not buy the new version. Not much difference in specs.

    This unit is a great choice. Connects to 2 different phones, my android and my wife's iPhone, with no hassles, and doesn't drop the connection. 2 rear USB inputs, satellite, bluetooth, etc. I was able to set the illumination so I could see the display with my top down. I liked it so much I talked a good friend into one. I strongly recommend this unit.

    Great sounding single DIN unit

    This is a great receiver for a single DIN opening, but it is rare to find a receiver that still has a CD player, and adds HD radio, Bluetooth, and is satellite-ready. Now that Alpine is getting out of the aftermarket, Kenwood is about the best choice. And...the sleek looks fit into a dash without calling attention to itself.

    Good AM/FM Radio/Quality Sound/Small buttons.

    The AM/FM and HD Radio works well. Better than my old pioneer radio that this replaced. The cd cover I leave open all them time because if you close it, it is very difficult to open again. The sound quality is very good, no complaints here on that. Some of the buttons are small enough to be a little awkward at times, but I can live with it.

    My car stereo went out years ago, and I kept putting off replacing it. I kept researching, but never had peace about purchasing. Thanks to Cassidy, at the Hickory, NC location, I chose this model. It has EVERYTHING I need. The sound clarity is so awesome, my classical music is better than on my home/expensive stereo.
