great buy

Bought one for my truck, one for my sister, and gonna buy another for my motorcycle. Gonna try covering the face with clear plastic that I can remove with Velcro. Went through two marine stereos that weren't cheap. If I can get this to last just as long and have Bluetooth I'll be happy.

Does what it says

This head unit offers a lot of functionality. With bluetooth support (calls and general audio), aux, and radio for when your phone dies, it's perfect.

If using other inputs and you have bluetooth set up, audio source will switch over automatically when you receive a call. This is good (can listen to radio and still have hands-free technology)

One thing to note is that there is only one display mode that shows the current time. This is a con if you plan to use any other display mode, such as showing the song name or artists. Eventually I'll probably tape a cheap walmart watch to my dash to make up for it.

Had some troubles with bluetooth playback although it was no fault of the unit. Music from iPod played great but from my phone it was very flat and occasionally 'skipped'/buffered. Applied a custom patch to my phone (was on 4.2.2 CWM) and it now works perfectly.

I recommend this for a budget head unit.

Not as nice as i hoped for

The head unit is OK in the way that it does what you ask of it. The down side is that it has the absolute most unintuitive controls I have ever experienced in my life. Tapping the volume button will not get you to the fader or bass mid high controls like every other head unit ever I have ever owned. And navigating the menus to customize settings is a trip. I would suggest hanging on to the instructions until you get the hang of it. With all that being said it seems this is built around making phone calls with the music as an afterthought which is fine except it takes upwards of 2 minutes to connect Bluetooth every time you turn it off.

Great unit for those who don't fuss with CDs anymore.

This's a great headunit. I bought it July of 2013, and a year later, it's performing just as expected. Bluetooth connectivity is a breeze and the built-in calling/answering functions work nice (depress large volume knob to answer, hold small button with phone icon to hang up). Other features require a dive into the owner's manual, so keep that in mind. But otherwise, it performs the "meat" of its duties well.

Great Value

This is by far the best system I have ever owned. Maybe cause I have a Iphone 4 to use along side it. Just makes it that much easier to operate. Bought all my system through sonic electronix. Door speakers,sub and amp. excellent sound package.

Great unit for price.

Very great solid unit for price. Can't be beat. Everything going is real easy to work and all the accessories such as Pandora and blue tooth work flawlessly. I would purchase another in a heart beat.

Fine, inexpensive unit...recommend

Just received my reconditioned JVC KD-X250BT today and installed it in my 2005 Ford Ranger Edge. Install went well, the mount system took a little bit of work to figure out and I ended up reinforcing the deck mount with aluminum tape. Had to also find a nut to attach the rear stability bar, lucky I had one the correct size. Wiring harness was just right.
Snapped in securely, so much so I wonder how I will get it out if I ever need to! Looks quite nice and sound is crisp , a real improvement. Bluetooth paired with my iPhone 3G (!) seemlessly!!

Great Value, prompt delivery....I am quite satisfied.
