Default Just got permission to buy chr550

Now before I buy this I want to know for sure that it will work with android phones as well as iPhone. They only advertise it for iPhones and I plan on getting something else when I get a new phone. Will I be able to do all the cool video stuff from a android phone such as the Note? I like the idea of basically controlling my phone from the radio and seeing what I'm doing.

Also, what can't be done with an iPhone 5 on the chr550 that can be done on the older iPhone?

Ask about an Extended warranty if they offer one your going to need it believe me. My unit only lasted 3 months the Ipod cable was defective and they told me to go blow smoke and would not replace it. They wanted to trouble shoot the problem with a local Radio shop but i had to pay the trouble shooting bill myself.

No special cable made by them only. Basically i flushed $ 300.00 dollars down the drain because mine only lasted about 4 months so i decided to just go back to the original OEM stuff after reading all the complaints online regarding these units.

Do you still have yours? Would you sell it cheap without the cable? I can probably get a new cable grime somewhere.

Nikeman, first of all, which radio do you have ?
RHR 730 Navigation
RHB 430 Navigation
RBZ 430 non nav
RES 130 non nav
the letters are found on the radios face, lower right corner, by the AUX plug in

secondly, are you just needing to connect the phone ? or are you trying to do something else too ?
like in motion video ?

I too have read some not so good reviews on these and to my knowledge they are only compatible with ipod/iphone products no android.

Thanks

i have the chr550 sitting on my toolbox -- never had any issues with it , also ran a reverse camera off of it . i used it for my iphone 4 and was great . sold the 09 wrangler that i had it in , so no need for it now .

i use the usb out on my kenwood nav unit that i installed in my dodge now and alls that does is power my samsung note 2 -- it connects bluetooth and the aux cable and gives me what i need .

I have the 43on and I really like the mirroring that I see in the video. I also like being able to use the nav while moving.
