    Kept shutting off

    |
    Posted .

    It was a product that was recommended to me from an audio tech and I had it for maybe 2 1/2 weeks and it started shutting off and restarting while I was driving, playing music or using google maps or even making a call. Then it started to get worst where it would just stay off and give me a msg to pull the car over and turn it on and off. I took it to bestbuy and they told me it might be the firmware that is not compatible with my iPhone XS. So I got a better one. I recommend the alpine ILXF309, if you really want something nice. I love mine!

    Great addition to Car

    |
    Posted .

    I was excited that I could find a stereo that had mostly digital controls with few buttons, so that I wouldn’t have to worry about them being hard to push or any dials to turn after the radio was installed. This was perfect for just that reason. It boots up quick, and Apple carplay works flawlessly. The Geek-Squad did an extraordinary job on installing the radio. You wouldn’t know it was aftermarket judging by the looks of it. The only bad thing I can say about this product is that sometimes it loses power entirely when the car is off, causing me to have to reset the time when I turn the car on. This is uncommon, but it is still an inconvenience worth noting.

    I have this installed in my 2006 Yukon. It does the job. It is sleek and looks good installed. For some reason, my iPhone 11 will not automatically connect with Bluetooth. I have to have it plugged into the USB port. Whether that's the phone, the radio or the user, I am not sure. The flow is a bit choppy if you are trying to listen to the radio and use the Maps off your phone. You have to push quite a few buttons to switch back and forth between the screens. First world problems right there :) I am not a huge fan of the main screen - even with changing the background, it is too busy for my taste and is way too bright at night - again, even after adjusting it. I do like the Apple CarPlay display - simple, easy to see... but I am guessing that is on Apple. It works OK with my backup camera. The quality of picture is not the greatest, but that is likely the camera. It also cuts in and out sometimes, which is probably installation. Where this would be a win-win-win would be if it can show a feed from a camera (such as in a horse trailer) while driving. If I was a computer genius, I might be able to figure it out... but I am not.

    great unit, but not completely android friendly

    |
    Posted .

    this head unit is very adequate, but isn't completely Android friendly. To say that it has Android Auto is a stretch, it works with my Android phone and the Android Auto App activates in my phone, but the Android App is missing from the Head unit it self! The JVC App is garbage and kind of useless, it freezes up and only has a limited functionality. The unit itself has good sound and fair power, I have stock Hyundai speakers in my Sante Fe and this unit cleared them out nicely. I recommend this unit, especially if it is on sale, I have not played with the DVD so I can not say anything about that feature.

    Apple CarPlay Double Din

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased this head unit mainly for the Apple CarPlay feature, which I now enjoy daily. I also like that the display takes up a majority of the space and there are very few physical buttons compared to some of the other head units. Apple CarPlay can be buggy, though from reading various forums online it seems to be more of an issue with the Apple CarPlay software, not necessarily with this head unit. Upgrading the head unit’s firmware from JVC’s website, as well as updating the iPhone’s software, helped resolve some issues. Now when Apple CarPlay does occasionally freeze, I simply unplug the USB cable and then plug it back in to get thins working again. The included microphone provides clear hands-free calling and Siri interaction.

    Safety first

    Apple car play makes texting safe keeps your attention on the road with verbal text reading and replying! Hands free calling screen looks like I phone when using Apple CarPlay. Only disappointment is no apps for Netflix or Hulu or way to screen monitor from my I phone! Apple maps music and Waze apps are helpful! Great sound and equalizer! Touch screen but I wanted a remote also and had to order it separately as it is not included, but it is inexpensive to purchase elsewhere. I haven’t purchased the backup camera yet but will add one soon. Overall nice product and It does more than I’m currently using it for!

    Excellent product and best buy tech service

    I purchased this radio on sale and came with their installation free. I paid around $400 with all installlation accesories. Geek installed with almost perfection. everything is working great!... The radio has apple play and android radio compatible. APple play works faulessly and havent tried with android yet. So far very happy. It is a very good upgrade compared to the factory radio from my 2010 Town and Contry. The sound is event better. With more effects and settings that the original stereo. Everyone loves it when they ride my minivan.

    This unit has worked well for me. I have run into issues if it randomly restarting but doesn't happen often. Android Auto works well with this unit.

    Good stereo, a little learning curve

    |
    Posted .

    Bought for my wife's 2009 CRV. Geek squad install looks great. There was a bit of a learning curve to operate it and is not nearly as intuitive as my Kias infotainment system, but adds android auto to an older vehicle and still plays cds. Need to download an app to use Waze and other built in apps and does not recognize it still on my wife's android phone.

    It’s gives me the flexibility I while driving.

    Great system, I wish I could use another map instead of Apple maps. Apple map is one of the worst maps out there. The other features take a little while to understand. Going between or maneuvering from features is a bit challenging but if you continue to work with it it becomes easier. The best feature is ability to upload your photos for the back ground display. I going buy another for my other car.

    Very pleased so far. Except a couple small things.

    Looks good, sounds good, does just about anything. My only negative.. and this mostly cause I haven't totally learned the whole thing, it can be a bit of a challenge t navigate between operations. Installation was great. Best Buy did a good job overall with the Geek there that has been doing installs for 10 years. Makes my old car feel like a loaded new car.

    Absolutely Awesome

    Had a bad experience with my 1st JVC model. The folks at Best Buy we're awesome. A tech, Ryan, suggested this model to begin with but wasn't in my budget @ the time. Well, the store allowed me to exchange that one for this model & it is WAY better. I'm very happy. Thx.

    Tremendous product. Simplicity of use and design

    Having gone to this upgrade was well worth the money. The screen icons and read outs are easily seen and all instructions are clear. Google maps has been a great help even in the back country of Nothern California. I miss the feature of having multiple CD’s with my last radio...

    I was looking for an in dash GPS when I found this with CarPlay. Glad I went with this option instead. Overall great product and Geek Squad install was outstanding.

    Great radio with mediocre app

    Overall, I love the stereo. Simple to install and simple to figure out. The WebLink is worthless. I have the most recent version of the app on my phone and it still doesn't sync. Seems to be a common problem. Otherwise a great choice.

    JVC Car Sterio

    |
    Posted .

    After having to add onto the price of the radio with an extension so that I can use my steering options, I also need to order another part so that I can use the USB port. The radio is pretty cool, however, turning down the volume is no easy task without the steering controls. The app that I was told to download keeps glitching on my phone. It'll disconnect when the car is turned off, but then it will connect, disconnect, connect and so on so I would have to reboot my phone each time I exit the car. In addition, the apps on the radio only connected to my phone once. Perhaps my phone is out of date compared to the stereo, but there was no mention as to any requirements when the stereo was purchased. On a positive note, the sound quality is very good!

    JVC rocks!

    My wife prefers JVC over Pioneer and even Sony. Go figure. This JVC receiver unit is excellent, it gives her a lot of Capability as far as her preference when it comes to all the assets this Bluetooth receiver has. She is very happy to have received this as a Christmas present and as her husband I'm happy seeing her happy.

    Great Car Stereo

    I have had this stereo for about a month now and I love it. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the Spotify app doesn't boot up sometimes. Just have to exit CarPlay and go back in to fix but still a little annoying.

    This JVC car receiver was by far the biggest mistake I've ever made. I thought I couldn't go wrong with JVC. I was so wrong. The receiver locked up before I even got out of the parking lot at Best Buy. The JVC app that you have to download is the biggest joke I've ever seen. And don't get me started on JVC customer service. Their resolution was not to run Waze on my phone at the same time. I uninstalled waze and it made no difference. I updated the firmware but once that was done - the receiver only stated that my Samsung Galaxy S8 was no longer supported. But, in the end, Best Buy made it right. I have a Pioneer car receiver. Has more features and there is no app to download on your phone!
