Thanks to the OP for this, I'm in the market for a HU for my truck and while I have a Mosconi 6to8 already. I was looking at this HU in addition to the H800 & C800.

Now I need to weigh the 6to8 vs the H800, all said and done I want to try optical and to avoid having a number of long RCA runs.

Well I've come to the conclusion that in order what I need, I have to stay with my 910. It allows me to use the hu/steering wheel functions to control volume as needed. This way I don't need to mess with my Rux controller knob to regulate the volume.

I wonder if the SWC would still work with a 957 connected to a C800.

Only if the 957 is set to analog. If you want steering wheel control with a 957 via digital, an option would be via a 6to8 with spdif and the mini controller and a steering wheel module with ir AFAIK.

Why would the output setting matter? All the SWC does is tell the HU what to do. I get that volume won't work because the C800 controls that exclusively now, but everything else should still work.

What I'm saying is if someone wants full control of volume, track, etc. with their steering wheel via optical thru the 957, the option I mentioned above should work AFAIK. I'm keeping my W910 to my H800 for very similar reasons as the OP in so much as I have everything at my fingertips via the steering wheel control. With the PAC module I'm using, I have been able to successfully map 9 buttons on my steering wheel to corresponding controls of my W910, a convenience that is hard to give up.

I must admit it's really hard to give that one touch down feature up as far as I am concerned. Again I don't use the navi nor the Bluetooth so I cant speak on those things. My boot up time is quick for me, and I have zero floor noise so that within itself makes me happy.

I have Bluetooth hands free from the W910 also mapped to steering wheel controls via the PAC module. I have very little reason to reach for the W910's touchscreen.

Convenience is where it's at. My BRZ doesn't have SWC. That sucks because the HU only has soft buttons for track up and down and I almost always have to press the screen twice.
Dodge's 8.4" system is easily the best OEM system I've ever used. Too bad they removed any sort of official drive this year.

I have a question. Since this is the same as the x008u which I will be using with optical to a 6-8. Do I have to run rca's to for the nav function to play over the speakers?

Yes, and would need to manually switch to RCA as input on the 6to8 when using NAV. You would also need to run the RCAs to the H800 to get NAV voice prompts with the 957, but it is my understanding that it is all automatic with the inclusion of the NAV trigger that you can wire between the 957 and the H800.

Default Re: Alpine INE-957HD please rate it..

bringing a thread back from dead but figured cant hurt seeking help

Hello

Seeking help with HDMI help for the INEW957HD unit, We have tried the HDMI input for both Android(Samsung Galaxy S5 and Note 4), along with iPhone 5S and iPhone 6.. We can not get the HDMI icon to highlight, but the devices show charging.. We have tried powering from the USB input to both Apple HDMI unit and Samsung MHL adapter. We also tried with External power for the USB side of the devices..

We can connect a BluRay player directly with HDMI and icon Highlights.

Androids are running 4.4.4 and lollipop
both iPhones had newest updated software though

Benchmark Soundworks, if anyone like like to help us trouble shoot
