Negative feedback

However, there are those for whom this product did not like at all. The main drawback, in their opinion, a high price given the meagre functions. There is no support for the format without losing quality FLAC, the radio reception bad reception, can't use the smartphone on "Android" via Bluetooth (only Apple products). This is the most common complaint. Yes, the functionality for the price is a little bit poor. But somehow nobody takes into account the sound quality and overall performance of the car. And it's too expensive. However, most need rich functionality. They are even willing to sacrifice sound quality. Then they do not need the products of Alpine. There are more suitable "head" of the "pioneer." The "Alpin" evokes more trust. Although both are made in Japan.
