I have the CDA-9886 HU which is awesome so I wanted to add HD radio, Setting up the AI net is complicated, there are 3 switches on the bottom of the HU which need to be configured and only the HU manual mentions them, not the HD tuner manual. My TUA-550HD tuner has the same problem as a previous reviewer, 25% of the time it will display radio frequency but no sound. So I have to turn off the car and restart it. I have a few AM/FM stations 45 miles from where I live and it picks them up. For the price compared to the competitors this tuner is junk. I maintain radio's for a living, do professional car audio installs, and am an active HAM. Wait until Alpine releases a newer model.

Don't buy. When it works it sounds great, but randomly on vehicle startup the tuner shows a station is tuned in, but no sound. The Alpine head unit works on IPOD and CD. Must turn off vehicle to clear fault, turning off radio does not clear fault. have tried 2 units and both do the same thing. Alpine has no clue as to the problem let alone the fix!

*****
NOTE: We believe this to be an installation error. The unit was not purchased from us, but if it was, we would provide technical assistance for installing it correctly.
