This unit is a wonderful starter for those with the room for a double-DIN stereo. While it does not offer navigation out of the box, the unit, with its sharp 6.1-inch LCD touch screen, offers plenty for those looking to make the stereo the focus of their interior. The unit offers full Bluetooth capability and also the ability to play DVDs.

The head unit is also great for those with an iPhone. The software on the unit allows for basic controls of several apps that are available on the iTunes Appstore. Additionally, if you download the MotionX-GPS Drive app and connect the iPhone to the unit it turns into a full-fledged GPS navigation system.

One of the greatest features worth considering in regards to this stereo is the detachable face as mentioned before. This is a feature that is quite rare for the double-DIN segment and a soft carry pouch is provided. It's great for those living in a high crime area, who still want the media capabilities that the unit can provide. (www.mobile.jvc.com)
