This is my favorite upgrade to my JKU. Fits perfect. Sounds AWESOME (way better then stock), GPS is fantastic and the 3D maps are great. Comes with dozens of apps pre-installed and you can add your own. Definitely the most advanced head unit I have ever owned. By far the best option for a JK.
Man this thing is great! bought one for my 2014 jku and it totally rocks out! the torque gauges are really awesome to. glad i bought it!!

Definitely Worth It!
Love this thing! Got it as an upgrade to my 2014 JK and it absolutely kicks butt! I saw it didn't work with SiriusXM, so I sent a quick email, and they showed me a couple ways to make it work with it! It is wayyyy better than my factory head unit ever was. The support guys are super helpful and they make a pretty good product. If you want to upgrade your sound system, try this one!

The wife wanted to go shoe shopping. I sat in my JK watching Thursday night football. Worth every penny!!!

I had the single cd with infinity speakers and subwoofer. Never sounded very good. The sound has really come alive after installing this head unit. The NAV is great, i have my backup camera hooked up and my podcasts download right to it when i pull in my driveway within wifi range. Also i love the OBD connection, you can check and reset trouble codes from your radio.

All problems Fixed AWESOME Thanks Insane Audio
Well my last review on this unit was not a good one. BUT NOW I would like to change that. I sent it back to Insane Audio and WOW it came back GREAT. All my problems were gone. They fixed everything. This unit is amazing works great. I highly recommend the Insane Audio's JK1001

Returning, lack of XM a deal breaker...
Bought for the wife, who loves her XM radio. Having to use XM via a connected smartphone won't work for her as she doesn't have a data plan for that purpose and prefers a deck that includes it (like the stock one). There's been talk for months from the Insane Audio guys of coming up with a solution but it has not yet happened. Going to find another option in the meantime...great deck, however. Just not right for us. 1 star given as it was a total disappointment that they have not yet come up with something for this issue.

Insane Audio In Dash Unit
I bought this unit to combine functionality in the dash in my wife's 2013 Wrangler over and above what came with the stock unit. It was form and fit compatible and was installed with amazing ease. Credit goes to both Insane and the Wranger OEM for this. The functionality of audio, video, performance metrics, and GPS is impressive which is where the complexity part comes in. It will take a while to learn all it will do.
Since I own a 2008 Wrangler and the unit is compatible, it looks like I may have to buy another one soon.

Not what I was expecting
Extremely over rated by the manufacturer. Doesn't power the stock amp at all if you have a 7 speaker system. Reception is great. I know this is stupid but it won't gold the correct time for more than 30 mins. Waste of money.

More bang than you need for your buck?
Grabbed the JK1001 as soon as it came out and was very impressed with it out of the box. I'm hardly handy with tools but I know my way around a socket wrench just enough that the install was pretty straightforward and easy. Biggest problem is clearance for wires behind the dash, but you can move stuff above and below it and make it fit flush and nicely. It does work right out of the box plugged into the factory connection with no issues.
Is it a problem that it might be too complicated? The Android interface is great, but there are SO MANY apps preinstalled it can be pretty daunting to look at and figure out what you want on the main screen. Considering your Jeep will rarely be regularly connected to WiFi - unless you're bringing your own hotspot - the calendar, google now, google search, and email functions just seem too much. Great to add on, but out of the box it's clutter.
As an Android based receiver, I think it's pretty ironic that it comes with an iPod adapter but not a micro-USB plug for Android phones to connect to. Nonetheless, had no problem (though the interface is kinda ugly) to stream music from my Android phone to the receiver via bluetooth.
Built in mic for the phone is great, and while I was told I sound 'tinny' (talking from a tin can), I could hear them fine and they could understand me clearly. And there is no stupid mic you have to tape to your steering wheel or tuck in the visor either.
GPS seems slow to respond but I'll give it some time. It comes with Google Maps and the Insane Audio Nav app, so you can choose function and reliability (google) or pretty and..takes some getting used too (IA Nav). The IA Nav doesn't seem to have a function to tell you to take a road by name. It will just say 'Turn right' instead of 'Turn right on main street'.
64GB SD slot for storage and a USB front port for up to 64GB more storage means it's definitely ready for a long trip (movies) and lots of music. Find a stubby USB and you won't even notice it sticking out.
Overall, is it worth $900+? Get your money out of it and organize the extra apps and - the best part probably - download some useful apps from the Google Play store when you're connected to WiFi and get the bang for your buck. I am not saying I'm unhappy with it by any means, but sometimes too much is too much - it's almost overkill with how functional, customizable, it is. A smart manufacturer could easily make a JK1001-JR for 1/2 the price and fill a price niche there as well.
I would like to know if this is compatible with the 2011 Wrangler Rubicon - European models, Or if you have one that in your stock. This will be a gift for my brother who lives in Istanbul
