I purchased this head unit for my Volvo s70 because I had the terrible factory unit in my car and the quality was progressively getting worse. I purchased the this alpine and sonic gave me all the required parts for the installation. It is a GREAT head unit and the Bluetooth works flawlessly with my Windows 8 phone. The in car calling works perfectly as well.

So, I've liked Alpine gear for 15 years, but the fact is, it's as though they're farming out their lower-priced decks to someone else. I dunno. Maybe that's just what happening.
This decks is fine for what it does. But that's it. It does NOTHING exceptionally well, save bluetooth with a Windows phone. That works well.
The EQ curve is a mess. I'd love to be able to dial where the midrange curve affects things. It's making me wish I'd sprung for more bands.
The menu setup sucks. It just sucks all the way around. Functions are buried under cryptic button push-and-hold scenarios.
It's okay, fit what I was trying to do with my truck, but I wouldn't buy it again.
