JVC kd-r820bt - 4 thumbs up

If I had four thumbs, they'd all be up for this head unit. I realize many of you are into stock decks but if you want to add iphone support and Bluetooth, you're going to buy a bunch of accessories and have a pile of wires hanging all over your dash.

I bought this on sale for $199.00 at Future Shop. For that price, I got Bluetooth support (phone, streaming audio) for my iPhone, two places to plug in my iPhone and have it fully supported, an external mic to attach to my visor. Oh ya, and pretty decent sound.

My iPhone address book is accessible through the head unit. So no more risk of tickets for using my phone. Absolutely seamless and flawless phone support.

What gets my goat about this is that the car manufacturers will charge $1000's for this as an option package. JVC charges $200.00. Something wrong with that picture.
