Mediocre looking Youtube footage, especially at night. Few reviews exist, even fewer trustworthy reviews. Silver trim will make it stand out like a sore thumb.

Looks about the same performance as a 20 quid one!

No GPS, only navigation ready (you have to buy a GPS module).
If you can find me a named brand, double din, touch screen head unit with DAB and GPS Sat Nav for £249.99, then I'm all ears! ;)
Why pay for a brand name and go without some features that are important to some?
You can get dab radio and GPS 2din units for under £200, not brand names, but its up to the individual to make their own choice.
If you want a brand name, BassJunkies are selling the JVC KW-V215DBT 6.2" with Dab for £249.00, and they include a DAB Antenna worth £19.99 (Free delivery).
Thats £20.98 cheaper than the Pioneer.
I'm not sure what your point is - first you criticise this unit for not having SatNav, when comparable units with SatNav are £150+ more expensive.
Then you seem to think it worthwhile pointing out that you can get unbranded products cheaper than branded products, like that's news to anyone.
Then you bring up a completely different model and state that it's slightly cheaper, but don't even bother to link it so others can compare it.
I'm not sure how you're think you're helping here, or if you're even bothered about helping anyone rather than scoring points on the internet?
Just search the web just as I have, do your homework first.
The end. ;)
Another helpful post.(_;)
FYI, I did search the web, went to the Bass Junkies website, searched for the model number, searched for Double DIN units, searched for JVC units and still couldn't find it. That website is hopeless.
I take it your writing "The End" to close your post instead of addressing my criticisms means you accept them?
I'm not going to get into an argument with you, surely you can search the web armed with the brand and model number... JVC KW-V215DBT. I've also found two other brands that may be better value, I may just use those as one of my deals... :p
Please remeber... What you think maybe a deal, doesn't mean everyone else is going to agree, what makes you judge and jury?
Just because you post what you think is a deal, not everyone is going to agree. This is a open forum where members can post their views, their findings, and their own experiences.
I hope this does not come as a surprise to you, but people are all different oO they are allowed to have different opinions, thats life I'm afraid.
You have to accept the good and the bad - the positives and the negatives - hot and the cold. :D

I like how you've turned my criticism of your unhelpful posts into me being sore about you not considering my deal a good deal.

You've totally missed my point: this website is for helping others find deals. Posting pointless comparisons (doesn't have GPS, unbranded units are cheaper, product comparisons without links) aren't helpful, regardless of your opinion of the deal.

if I disagree with someone, I'm quite likely to tell them - that's not a negative quality, it's how we learn - by challenging other people's beliefs, especially when they don't align with my own.
Oh dear, enough said, this place is not for you, you will end up getting yourself in trouble with that attitude.
Goodbye! Hitting the ignore button now, the first time I have actually had to use it.


Pretty sure you're not the judge of who and who is not welcome here, so excuse me if I assign absolutely zero value to that statement, which is coincidentally the same value I give your promise to ignore me from now on and actually leave this thread (at the fourth time of claiming to do so).

Thanks for the top tips, but I don't have to do anything - as you so rightly point out: I'm free to believe what ever I want and am free to comment as I like.

As for my posting history, if I disagree with someone, I'm quite likely to tell them - that's not a negative quality, it's how we learn - by challenging other people's beliefs, especially when they don't align with my own.

And as it seems we're dishing out forum advice for free now, here's mine for you: pay attention to the words you use when posting - they are the only means by which I can discern what you're trying to say. For example, your claim that I do "not allow other members to have their own opinions" is sloppy (a recurring theme in your posts). It is literally impossible for me to stop someone else from having an opinion, short of killing them. So I cannot possibly not allow other members to have opinions.

It's much more accurate to say that I challenge other people's manner of posting and sometimes their opinions.

For point of reference, I'm so uninterested in your opinion (or challenging it) that I haven't even bothered looking at your post history. You might also want to take your own advice about "moving on" too, seeing as posting in this thread gives you a headache and you apparently can't wait for it to end. Before you do though, see my post above about your hypocrisy.

Da11as
I'm not going to get into an argument with you, surely you can search the web armed with the brand and model number... JVC KW-V215DBT.
You are looking pretty silly regarding your behaviour, just STOP now please.
Like I said before... Every member is allowed to have their own opinion, their own views. They are free to comment and vote the deal Hot or Cold, its entirely up to them.
This was my inital post, Post #1
Da11as
No GPS, only navigation ready (you have to buy a GPS module).
My post is my own personal view, I am totally free to cast my comment. The link I posted to the JVC in Post #9 shows another product where the DAB antenna is included, this then saves the consumer £20.98, or even more depends on what antenna is purchased after buying the Pioneer unit in your deal.
Again! What you think maybe a deal, doesn't mean everyone else has to agree, just because you post what you think is a deal, not everyone is going to agree. This is a open forum where members can post their own views, their findings, and their own experiences.
So, the fact that you posted a link after I criticised you for not posting a link in either of your first two posts, means I shouldn't have criticised you for not posting a link? That's an interesting line of reasoning, to say the least.
You keep harping on about being entitled to post your opinion, but I've never criticised your opinion. I honestly couldn't care less about it. Apparently you don't understand the difference between an opinion (e.g. this isn't a good deal) and the nature of a post (e.g. posting pointless information).
It is the nature of your posts that I'm criticising, I've explained that several times, but you keep harping on about being allowed to post your opinion.
For what it's worth, you also keep mentioning saving £20.98 too, which is also factually incorrect: as I stated in the initial post, you can pick up a compatible DAB antenna for £12. So, your saving from a free antenna is a maximum of that amount.
Again, you criticise me for not seeing for what is in front of you, yet are oblivious to the fact that you are guilty of this exact flaw.
.

The difference is, you dont like it when another member doesn't agree with you. You dont allow other members to have their own opinions, or leave a comment without questioning/arguing with them. I have looked back over your deals and can see you argue with anyone that places a comment that you disapprove of.

You must be able to accept constructive criticism, you must also understand that not every member is going to agree with you, you must not argue/harass any member to give further reasons to their original post/comment or vote.

Bit of advice for you... get over it, post a deal and move on.

total bs on the ratings - you're not going to get anywhere near those even if you had your hearing aid set to as high as it'll go.

if you have the option, I would invest in a decent 2 channel with some modest fronts over trying to to amp 4 stock speakers.

also note that if you amp your rear speakers you'll lose the audible bell of parking sensors (if its built into your existing electrics, fortunately mine was a seperate buzzer).

I'm not going to vote either way. but bare in mind with car audio, generally you do get what you pay for.


​if it manages half the power that it says jt has, it'll be enough for me at this price. My speakers are 90w rms.

A question for all you ICE buffs: when an amp like this is described as a '4 channel amp', does each channel have an independent input? In other words, could you use it for a quadraphonic setup?
I'd like to know this as well. Could it be used at home, with suitable power adapter, as a 4-speaker surround amp with 8 ohm speakers?

2 Pairs of RCA's, so yes essentially a 4.0 system.
8 Ohm, Not likely, usually 4 ohm or below. *if* it did run, it'd be quite quiet, plus you'd need a 14.4v power supply run it

is the mic located on the remote? or is it a separate mic? guessing the latter as no pic of mic. seems a good deal if it works well.
you would need to buy the iso cables seperatly to install this using the pro method and potentially some additional cables
If you Google the product, the website has installation instructions in PDF format. Not the clearest on first looking, but probably make more sense with the product and your car stereo in front of you.
Any idea how easy is it to fit the pro version? Is it something anyone can do or do you need a fitter?

I think the only real advice here is to call and ask.

No, the real advice is write telling them always keeping a copy and proof of delivery. I would spend my day talking to people that said 'but I told the insurance company'. If you can't prove it then it didn't happen when there's a claim !
vulcanproject
Corranga
In many cases I'd agree, but not in this one.
I don't see how a remap, for either performance or economy makes you more likely to make an insurance claim.
I DO however see how DIY fitting some non-manufacturer approved reversing sensors can easily lead to an insurance claim if/when they fail and you reverse into something.
Of course, the key word is AID, these are a reversing AID, they shouldn't replace normal driving practice.
If you can't safely reverse a car, you should be re-assessing how safe you are on the roads, and at the very least, be practising until you can reverse, or maybe getting some tuition to help you.

So an insurance company wouldn't quite like to know that a remap has enhanced the performance of a vehicle rather a lot? I have a remap (now and on other vehicles) and it has boosted engine performance by over 20 percent. The vehicle is therefore in a different section of performance compared to what it was before. That would blatantly be of interest to an insurer, even though said remap is virtually undetectable (even by a dealer) unless someone was specifically looking for it.

Realistically this reversing kit modification is so minor- if you rely on it and cause some damage because it fails it's still going to be YOUR fault, and any insurer will note that with increased premiums because of said claim the following years.

I didn't say that an insurance company wouldn't like to know about a remap, I said that in my opinion, fitting a cheap, probably low quality, and certainly not manufacturer approved device that is designed specifically to prevent a reversing accident - and could easily cause a claim if/when it fails is surely worthy of their attention, and in my opinion, as important, if not more important to mention!

I also drive a modified car (not remapped as the ECU can't be remapped, but with good old induction, value, head work instead...) and declare absolutely every modification, whether performance increasing or simply a visual mod (change of wheels for different design in the same size for example).

I think the only real advice here is to call and ask.

Realistically this reversing kit modification is so minor- if you rely on it and cause some damage because it fails it's still going to be YOUR fault, and any insurer will note that with increased premiums because of said claim the following years.

With the remap scenario.. So you sell this car to someone, and don't mention it to them. They then have an accident. Should the insurance be invalidated because of the undeclared modification?

No - they policyholder wasn't aware of the modification, so couldn't be expected to declare it.

It is true, but then several mods may not be mentioned to insurers like this as second hand owners can hardly be expected to know the exact OEM spec of the vehicle. A well fitted integrated reversing sensor kit- most people I know wouldn't think about mentioning that to an insurer as a 'modification'. Like I said however, a remap is unlikely to be detected unless you looked in the right place for it. Unless the car was involved in a fatal accident or suspected or having a mechanical fault so was thoroughly investigated, nobody would probably ever know.

The thing is this catches out genuine people who don't realise that they should have told their insurance company or sometimes they say they did. when the insurance is being sold it's a quick question and it's not really gone into as it makes the quote more expensive and the customer therefore less likely to take the insurance. It's not unheard of for the sales team not to tick the box even when the customer has told them because they want the sale. if they don't sell enough it's a disciplinary procedure and possible sack.

Then months later there is an accident and it is queried by the call centre staff when the accident is reported. so insured says ohh yes, I told you when I took it out. It's got alloys, flash stereo, whatever and then it's ohh it will be referred to underwriters as it's not on your records, didn't you read the small print ? Alternatively it's I didn't know it wasn't standard on that car. either way the policyholder ends up paying more.

I had the boost on my Audi increased and the whole caboodle tweaked. It made a huge difference but didnt show. It was done by a firm that rallied them. I did tell the next owner but it was very noticeable anyway if you had ever driven one. He didn't tell his insurance. If it wasn't noticeable there would be no point doing it.

The Mini One remap is definitely noticeable, at the time is was £200 to go from 90bhp to 115bhp, in percentage terms on a NA engine it's huge gains for the cash.

It's a good gain, remaps are really popular these days and so easy to do even DIY with the handsets you can buy quite cheaply on ebay. Which is why I brought it up, there must be quite a lot of undeclared mapped cars out there now. I have remapped a few of my cars, last one was a Focus ST which you can easily put 40-50bhp on it and a boat load more torque, which is the main thing. Easily like 300lb/ft of torque. Transforms the car, in gear acceleration is absurdly good.

Turbocharged cars can benefit hugely. Cheap performance gains to be had, my father had his old Peugeot 406 HDi done a few years back after I showed him This article, it always had a nasty flat spot in the torque curve, afterwards it was amazing how much better it was to drive and it hardly impacted the fuel economy at all.

I've just updated the deal to reflect the current price. Still not bad for £135, though obviously not as good as £120 :)

I went and saw both this and the Pioneer at Halfords the other day and while the features are quite similar, this unit looked miles better! Definitely looks like the more grown-up and easier to use unit!
gken74

Cheers Jazzy, I went up to my local Halfords to price the steering wheel adaptors and they wanted £50!! so I didn't bother ordering.

If I can find out the model of cable required I probably will buy on and have a go myself as there is a great video on youtube showing you the exact steps to remove the OEM headunit.

All I know is the Halfords boy was on about ISO and muttering something about it maybe being an amplified system or not

You'll probably want something like this: https://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-steering-control-adapter-hyundai-santa-fe-2006-2009_p-29209.htm

It comes with the ISO connector (takes factory power, speaker etc. wiring and converts it to the ISO standard plug that will be on aftermarket HUs).

You can probably find all the connectors you need from the Connects2 website and then when you have found the part number, have a look on the web for the cheapest price :)

Ideal!

I've been looking for a bluetooth double din headunit to replace the OEM one in our 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe and this fits the bill perfectly.

What are Halfords like installing these unit......worth the £30?

I'd say no. The £30 will only cover removing and installing the new unit, but they'll charge you an arm and a leg for all the connectors etc. You're better off buying the connectors elsewhere e.g. eBay and having a go installing yourself. Maybe check the Sante Fe owners forums and see if anyone has posted up a guide or something similar, print that out, buy some plastic trim removal tools (about £5-6) and I think you can't go wrong.

Don't forget to disconnect the battery before you begin :)

Looks great. I'm not impressed with the Bluetooth audio codec sound quality. I currently have bluetooth in my car stereo. Unless it's got something like an APT-X codec, I'm not interested in the Bluetooth. This is an excellent item.
Looks like it was a good option a few years back, but if you want bluetooth the add on adapter is silly money and not integrated. Looks like Navigation is not n option either. If you just want to play DVD in the car, have a reverse camera and connect your ipod it looks ok value. It mentioned a low pass filter, but really you need a high pass filter if adding a subwoofer, to stop the low frequencies getting to the front and rear speakers.
For me personally any stereo these days without bluetooth is a waste of time. Never mind the fact it isn't DAB.
I remember when I was chavin my fiesta up in 2005 and I paid about £1100 for a alpine one! #idiot #gotmesomeclungetho #didntreally #whyamihashtagging?

Freezing this one over.
Ridiculous RRP same price here once you add delivery with a more realistic RRP of £50.

Cancel your order if I were you, this thing running 2 subs is going to be able to fry eggs with the heat it will produce. You will just overload it, The amplifier is about the size of your hand. Jbl is so cheap these days and are really good value. Its like towing a bus with a car, might work for a while but will eventually end up in smoke.
It's the vehicle wiring fire hazard some of these things cause... have you ever looked in the boot of some spotty yoofs car!

bet the RMS is something like 50wRMS

not a bad price but would rather spend a bit more and buy a budget JBL

Bang on

sony car stuff sucks anyway - ive always used

head units - alpine - so cheap now
amps - alpine or pioneer
speakers - rockford fosgate, infinity tweeters, pioneer subs, alpine, hertz subs and components

if you dont know why pople use subs then you are stupid, you need them for particular types of music - pointless if you listen classical music or jazz.

a sub is needed for those who like dance, reggae or rap music otherwise it sounds flat



Of course some of that stuff you mention is good stuff but you shouldn't diss Sony so easily. Many moons ago I bought a Sony head unit after comparing it to many other unit and there was no doubt it was a front runner. I had many enjoyable years with it. Sometimes I'd just go outside sit in the car and listen to it when I was on my own (away from neighbours etc). Infact I thought it was fantastic marriaged up to my Kef speakers.

However many kilowatts your speakers can "handle" is meaningless vapourware: Many have a figure quoted as what they will survive for as long as 10 milliseconds before meltdown.
The important figure is the SPL (Sound Pressure Level) they will produce without distorting or self-destructing; and the efficiency with which they will do so (which will tell you what size amp. you need).
Neither Sony or any other car audio manufacturer is likely to admit these figures {:¬)

agree and also depends how much your amp/headunit amp outputs too
