Bought it at bestbuy today (I had reward certificates to use) and I got it installed. It actually does sound better over Bluetooth than my previous JVC that I replaced using the aux port!

I went and picked one of these up today, holy balls, best purchase I've made in awhile. Super cheap, pretty easy installation, good stuff. I do have questions for anyone of you who's using this though.

What software version did yours come with? Mine says "USB 0201." Wondering if there's anything more up to date.

When I'm using Google Music, and I receive a text message / notification of any kind, my phone plays it through its speaker and then it echoes through the car audio. That's pretty ****ing annoying sometimes, and disabling the option of "msg notification" in the stereo's menu doesn't change it (I guess because it's on Android's end, not the stereo's). Anybody got a workaround for that?

I don't know about a software update, but mine does the same thing. And, I agree, this thing is an awesome purchase for the price.

Are you using Google Music? I'm going to try different apps tomorrow and see if any make a difference in that regard.

and I actually did find a software update, http://www3.jvckenwood.com/english/c..._download.html

I use slacker radio, and play music as a backup. I'll look at doing the software update also when I have time, I'm working all day today

I'm in for one! My current receiver's volume goes up no matter which way you turn the knob.

I just did the software update, really quick and easy to do. I'll report back if I notice any changes.

BTW, has anyone found a way to display the time when streaming over Bluetooth? That is the only thing that bugs me.

I tried that, it never displays the clock when I am using Bluetooth. If I change the input to FM it shows the clock, but I never listen to the radio
