Oh Wow what a sound

This is one great radio. I had no idea the sound system in my truck was of the quality that it is until I got this radio. It works extremely well with my Iphone 5 and Pandora. Even the radio stations sound 200% better. My only problem now is that I don't want to get out of the truck or only go on short trips. I highly recommend it. I did notice that sometimes after having used Pandora through the Iphone, that the radio stations acted as if there was no antenna connection. I would reset the radio and viola the sound was once again great.

JVC stero

JVC makes good product but my experience with this stereo was not good. It stopped responding to touch commands. I upgraded to the 471BT and have not had any problems

Pretty Decent for the price

Pretty Decent Headunit. Sometimes would not pair too well with my iPhone 5 but most of the time worked well. Easy to control. SQ probably could be a tad better. It was stolen the other day out of my porsche 911 so I am upgrading to the Alpine touchscreen and also adding an old school alpine EQ with BBE processor.

great deal

Easy to use and the touch screen is very responsive. My son warned me against this stereo,saying I would have to pay more for quality. After the install he now wants one for his car.

Good Radio at a Great Price.

I just finished the installation of the AV61BT in my Mustang. I included the Sirius Radio and the rear-view camera. The install was easy and everything works well. The features are too numerous to mention. Its like having your home entertainment system in your car. I would recommend this radio.

Great Deal

Bought this as part of a package deal for easy install. Came with everything you need. Best price available. Way lower than Best Buy!!!

Pros - A lot of Radio for the money. Many features that are very nice.

Cons - Sound quality poor. User friendly not so much. Wish I had paid another fifty dollars and bought a pioneer or Kenwood. Savings wasn't worth it.

JVC double DIN

This product was easy to install with the use of a wiring kit and dash harness. The unit works great and has a very nice feel to the touch screen. All the options are laid out and its cool that you can choose any color background you want

Great unit at a great price

I was looking for a touch screen, double DIN unit with bluetooth capabilities and this fit the bill perfectly at a great price. Install was quick and the unit itself is better than what I had expected!

The unit responds quickly to inputs on the touch screen, and even responds with gloves on (Resistive touch screen).

The only thing I wish the unit had was a better & faster search interface when the unit searches a USB for files (a little slow when scrolling through folders), as well as a stronger mic (gotta raise my voice sometimes).
