Save $40 for a refurbished? I rather buy a brand new one.

I have a JVC model similar to this one, I can't remember the model number off hand. It's okay for the most part. The one thing I HATE about it is that the clock runs fast. It gains about 45 seconds per day. So after about a week the clock is 5 minutes fast. There is no way to turn off the clock either.

I had contacted their support when it was under warranty, but they wanted me to send it in. At the time I didn't feel like pulling it out of the dash and sending it in. I should have. Oh well.

I've seen this kind of thing in aftermarket stereos. It probably has to do the vehicle's voltage. It can vary a lot from vehicle to vehicle. One might run somewhere around 13.2 while another runs at 13.9. Might not seem like much, but it's probably enough to throw the clock off. Plus the temperature extremes can throw things like that off. I wouldn't consider a vehicle a "controlled environment for delicate electronics. Other than that, is the receiver okay? Are the functions easy to use and intuitive

I would go new over refurbished if it's only $40 more also. BTW, where did you see it for that price? I didn't do too much digging, but it looks like it's $100 more at a lot of places? Was it somewhere reputable?

I think "onlineshoppingez" simply made a mistake in their assessment of savings. The sale on this refurbished unit is $40 off. So a new unit isn't actually $229.94, its just the full price of the refurbished unit.

I've been waiting for a good deal on a double DIN receiver, and recently found out about some receivers having an android screen mirror. Which would be a great alternative to pre-installed or support for actual GPS, while potentially keeping costs lower.

However, it seems as though this unit relies quite a bit on the Bluetooth. No aux-in nor any ports on the front at all. Seems to be more iPhone friendly than Android, though I admittedly don't know much about these things. It often seems that Android integration is quite a bit more rare.

Android Auto.

No, this unit does not have that. $400+ for something like that.

Fluctuations in voltage will not cause the head unit's clock to run fast or slow. That's like saying small fluctuations in voltage out of your wall socket will make your computer run faster or slower. Doesn't work like that man.

I strongly suggest looking up your model head unit on JVC's website and see if there's a firmware update. If there is, download it onto a flashdrive and update your head unit.

screen mirror is great, but keep in mind your phone will have be MHL compatible to work without extra adapters or having to wire additional stuff just to get a screen mirror. I bought a 2016 JVC model that has HDMI out, so I bought one that has a USB on the other end. Had my HTC M8 connected to it, was awesome to be able to mirror my screen, use GPS and even use the DIN to control the phone. But the biggest concern is that the screen will not turn off and you're phone will be running hot!

Now I have the HTC 10 and I think it no longer has MHL support. Plus there isn't a HDMI to USB C cable yet, last time I checked. So I've lost that capability. I use Bluetooth audio a lot and is great. I haven't had the need to use the AUX or USB port for audio. I've thrown a few videos on a USB stick and have been able to watch stuff in the car, via the external USB port cable. I'm okay with following directions from the Navigation, therefore, I don't need to have a visual on all the time to get to a destination. So Bluetooth audio work very well for me and no need for nav everyday.

I wish. Maybe one day there will be one with a capacitive touch screen and greater than 800x480 resolution. And get rid of the DVD player to save costs (like the JBL Legend CP100).

I have a Jensen VX7022 that supports phone mirroring. I have tried to mirror my LG G3 with no success. If you want a GPS unit for a decent price, look at the Jensen VX7020 or look into a Chinese Android receiver.

Yes it does work like man. You don't have a 25% fluctuation at a wall socket. Plus with a PC you're probably going to have a much better regulated power supply.

Time is kept using a clock signal produced by a clock generator. That generator oscillates between Hi and Lo states at a programmed frequency. Altering the voltage into the entire head unit does not change the frequency that was programmed. If this was the case, like 20% of all users would have troubles with their clock keeping time.

Should the display dim when voltage is low? Maybe the music should slow down too? I think you get the point.
