Save you money and get a Garmin

 

Have had this in my F150 King Ranch since 2005. Is paired up with an IVA-D300.  All ties up very nicely and looks really cool.  Except...

screen very readable- touch screen clear and responsive

menu's confusing and non-intuitive- little or no rural

Consumer review by:

Disappointing performance for my time, effort and money.

 

Firstly, I have an IVA-W205, which I'm relatively pleased with.  I feel the interface is a little cluttered on the head unit normally, but what can you do?

Installation instructions.- Better than not having nav.- DVD

Please read the review above, where I outline all my dissatisfaction

Consumer review by:

The best nav I've used

 

I've tried MANY navigation systems, and I've never found any better than this Alpine; I'm not sure about the mp3 interface (which one reviewer complained about), but I think anyone saying that some cheap, portable NAV is better than this unit does not...

Everything I want in a NAV

somewhat tricky installation; not-cheap

Consumer review by:

Disturbingly poor performance

 

I bought this to integrate into my Nissan Titan dash with the double DIN IVA W200. Actually, I bought the IVA W300 specifically to integrate with the Nav unit. I love the integration into the Head Unit. The problem is, that's the only thing I like...

Integrates with their Head Units

Cons. Everything but the single Pro above and Alpine will not update the software

Consumer review by:

Would not recommend it

 

I have it installed in my Porsche 911 about 6 months ago. It is not worth even 20 percent of its price. User interface is very inconvenient. Voice command system is useless. Switching tracks on connected iPod requires a lot of attention -- don't do it...

Can be integrated with alpine DVD player

poor software (inefficient and buggy) and user interface, poor routing, inconvenient

Consumer review by:

WOW

 

I purchased this unit after a horrible experience with the Alpine PMD-B100 Blackbird. If you are considering that unit, please read my review on it first.

Very satisfied. Read full review

Couldn't mount it under my seat. Pricey. Not all places are in the Directory
