    search for my ICE upgrade thread in JVC926BT thread. my steering control works perfectly. also the hu has something called as application mode. it controls all your playlists and songs on your iphone/ipod etc.

    just press the next button on the steering wheel and the song changes in your handset. all steering controls work perfectly in my linea. which city r u located in?

    its quite a good feature. say you have android handset/ iphone/ ipad. just hook that thing on your dashboard or windshield and play video/audio/ navigation on it. the sound output automatically plays through your car speakers via head unit. not only this the head unit takes control over all the functions. so you need not touch the ipad to change the song. just press next track button on your steering wheel and the song changes in your ipad.

    Indeed and I'm loving it already.

    Wow, thats a fabulous feature to have.
    Today I got a chance to check out the iPod compatibly with the HU and guess what it works :) I was able to navigate through the playlists using the steering mounted controls.
    This also helped me realise that stock speakers are junk, moment I crossed volume level 15 the speakers started to jar.

    The HU remains as of now, but the speakers have to be upgraded with comps up front and coax in the rear. Possibly add a basic 4 channel amp. Any suggestions?

    Regards
