Talk hands-free and stream music
You can't avoid it, sometimes an important call comes in while you're on the road. Clarion's CZ302 CD receiver puts Parrot's class-leading Bluetooth® in your dash, so you can field those calls and hear your caller over your speakers. Pairing your phone with this Clarion receiver's incredibly easy, and a driver's-side built-in microphone ensures the person on the other end will hear you loud and clear. And you can also stream music from your phone or another compatible device.
Pandora® Internet radio for iPhone® lovers
Take your Pandora stations along with the CZ302 — with your iPhone connected, you can run the free Pandora app on your phone and control it from the dash. You can skip tracks, change stations, and rate songs just like you do online.
Connect your iPod® or iPhone
Your music library's extensive, but you're in the mood for that one perfect song. Connect your iPod or iPhone to the convenient front-panel USB input, and you can dive into that massive collection. Clarion's ABC Search lets you quickly zero in on a tune, or you can search more generally by artist, playlist, genre, and more. You can also switch control from the receiver to the player itself, so you can put a passenger in charge of the music.
Built around great sound
Clarion's built-in amplifier gives you the clean power you need to overcome road noise, while the versatile Magna Bass EX bass boost will add depth to your sound without getting muddy. The 3-band parametric equalizer gives you pinpoint control over the highs, mids, and lows — that's a big jump over the simple bass and treble controls found on most factory radios. A built-in low-pass filter lets you control the character of your bass, while a high-pass filter trims the extreme low bass out of your front and rear speakers so they play more efficiently.
Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Clarion stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the CZ302, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.
