Adding many functions to everyday items seems to be the norm, and this in-car stereo is no different. Not only will it sound good playing your favourite CDs but it also allows you to play music from secure digital (SD) memory cards or a USB flash drive. However, where this stereo is different is that it allows you to take calls via your car speakers from your mobile phone through the integrated Bluetooth® facility.
Bluetooth® Features:
Supported profiles: Headset and Handsfree profiles with Caller ID support
Call accept, call disconnect, call reject, last number redial
Supports call waiting and auto answer (dependent on mobile phone features)
Private mode to transfer call between handsfree and mobile phone
Supports up to 8 phone pairings

  • Convertible Compatible

    i was a bit skeptical about using the bluetooth handsfree in my Peugeot 306 Cabriolet for wind noise when the roof's down. but this has no affect on the mic, there is no feedback, and also had no problems reading a 16GB SDHC card (Order Code: N64GJ) which holds more then enough music for long journeys. Also being A2DP compliant allows me to a also play movies on my tablet in the back for the kids, and all of us to enjoy the soundtrack through the car stereo.

  • Great value for money, A great feature which isn't listed it A2DP support (audio streaming via bluetooth ) it works brilliantly! When your iphone is paired, you press the phone icon when you turn it back on, it reconnects and starts playing where you left off. For any golf owners having flickering and/or smoking! Issues (like I did ) when installing put the yellow and red pins together solves the issue. Overall this stereo is amazing value for money and has impressive features which you wouldn't ever usually get on a budget stereo.

  • Great value for money but I found a few issues.. delay between pressing answer and actually being able to talk to someone seems to be a few seconds thought was just my phone SE but then tried with my mates sat nav too and it would miss the first few words, bit of a pain, however a positive even in my oldish vito van people can still here me and I can now hear them, another couple of bad points :( 1) there is no way to set a phone/radio volume and save so phone is really quiet turn up in call, call ends then radio comes back on insanely loud, 2) the screen needs a dimmer where its located in the van at night the screen is miles to bright makes it hard to see out so have found a reel of black electrical tape very useful for night time driving. As said good value for the £ and I can once connected hear people in a noisy van which is why I brought it, would recommend just wish they would update the software/user interface

  • Have purchased this when it was on promotion. Have installed this unit on my VW golf MK5 as I needed something with bluetooth phone support. The unit needs to be manually switched off when the engine switched off. Bluetooth function is okay for the price paid as the mic sometimes does not pick-up voice clearly. I have paired my iphone 4 with this unit and the unit has very limited function for bluetooth as most of the functions have to be done on the phone. Some times it has difficulty in outputting audio to the car speakers and needs messing about, this may be either my phone or the bluetooth version compatibly issue. As the stereo needs to be manually switched off, it does not completely switch off had few issues when I'm at home and my phones ringing the car stereo tends to wake-up then continues to play songs after the phone conversation has ended. This could lead to flat battery if not noticed, I tend to now remove the face or unhook it from the unit. ( this only happens if the bluetooth is still running on the stereo and your phones still paired to it. Bluetooth does not switch off automatically after switching the unit off manually) Overall Okay for the price. The illumination is too bright as well but makes your interior of the car glow in the dark which looks nice from outside but eye catching.

  • Great radio and a terrific price ( B Grade but none the worse for that except for the lack of an instruction booklet). The Bluetooth connection instructions on-line were slightly incorrect (there isn't a pairing button - it's automatic) but on the whole it was straight forward fit and works a treat. The bluetooth hands free is superb (main reason I went for this model) and the sound is really clear. I fitted it in a classic Merc 300SL and with the "top off" it's still nice and clear. Would recommend :) If there had been instructions in the box I would have given it 5 stars - I think it deserves 4 1/2

  • excellent sound with no distortion through 11 year old standard Mazda speakers at full blast. SD card takes Mini SD's in an adapter too and works great as does my Sony Ericsson C905 with its bluetooth. I bought the B gradeas it was cheaperf - the box was crumpled a bit, perfect inside. Maplin also gave me £3 off because I sign up to their offers emails so got it for a much cheaper cost including delivery instead of the full priced unit. As you'll have read, the screen is bright and it's not dimmable. I'm going to look for a piece of screen tint or biker's helmet visor tint to stick over it which is a shame to do to an otherwise excellent piece of kit at a great price. Support is great too, quick turn around on questions.

  • An excellent bit of kit, although I haven't road tested it yet! Just a precautionary note - I had to do some surgery on the wiring to connect to my old camper van. I double checked everything but when I powered it up the panel lights fashed rapidly like there was an error. Panic stricken for a few minutes until I discovered that all this means is that the aerial isn't plugged in! As soon as I attached the aerial lead it worked normally and beautifully. Hope this saves a few tears for other lucky purchasers.

  • Fitted easily, except that the depth of the unit made it difficult to ram all the wires and ISO sockets into the back of the apperture on my 2003 Boxer motorhome. Radio & USB good, Bluetooth easy to set up, sounds good to the called phone, but output to speakers is quiet, needing to turn vol up - and remember to turn down before the radio comes on. Haven't tried CD's yet.

  • Nice unit, ticks all the boxes for radio, cd, mp3, usb, and sd card features, oh and bluetooth too. Pros;- good sound from cd and other mp3 sources, good security with removable front, easy to operate, bluetooth for hands-free phone use with integral mic'. Con's (IMHO);- average radio reception quality in Vauxhall's even with an aerial booster fitted, is not flush with centre console - but stands proud 7-8mm, plasticky feel to the front removable unit - feels like it would damage easily.
