Pandora® Internet radio

There are few things better on a road trip than discovering some new music. Clarion lets you tap into the power of Pandora in your car with their CZ702 CD receiver. All it takes is your iPhone® and the free Pandora app — just connect via USB and you can change stations and rate songs from your dash like you do online.

Hands-free calls and audio streaming

Clarion outfits the CZ702 with built-in Bluetooth so you can talk hands-free. When a call comes in, the receiver mutes the music while you talk to your caller over your car's speakers. The CZ702 features a driver's-side built-in microphone that'll pick up your end of the conversation, or you can add an optional mic for convertibles and other vehicles with high interior noise levels. Another big plus — you can also stream music directly into the CZ702 from a compatible phone or music player.

Easy iPod® and iPhone control

Once you connect your iPod or iPhone to the USB input, you'll enjoy outstanding sound quality and even keep your player charged as you drive. You can browse your music collection using the stereo's intuitive controls, or let your passengers control the tunes with included remote while you concentrate on driving. The 2-line display on this sharp-looking stereo keeps you informed of what's playing, and you can choose from 728 possible colors so the Clarion's illumination matches your dash.

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 Clarion, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

iPod note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

    Why replace your factory radio?

    Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology (powered by Parrot): The Clarion CZ702 is equipped with built-in Bluetooth ver. 2.0+EDR (powered by Parrot), allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit.

    Bluetooth Profiles: In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP (Hands Free Profile), PBAB (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).

    Pairing: Before using your Bluetooth enabled device, it must be paired to the CZ702. You can register up to five Bluetooth enabled cell-phones with the Clarion in-dash head unit (only one paired phone can be used at a time). The Clarion CZ702 is compatible with most Bluetooth enabled mobile phones, including the Apple iPhone. The Clarion CZ702 is not compatible with all Bluetooth enabled phones or audio players. Visit Clarion Bluetooth Support for complete list of compatible phones and players.

    Hands-Free Communication: The CZ702 supports Bluetooth hands-free communication from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The CZ702 can be set to automatically answer your incoming calls and mute any music audio to your vehicle's speakers so you can instantly carry on a phone conversation hands-free. An integrated front-panel microphone carries on your side of the conversation while your car's speakers are used to hear the other person. You can make a call by entering the phone number, selecting a contact from your Phonebook list, or using the Call History Log of received/dialed/missed calls.

    • Answering A Call: During an incoming call, the caller's phone number will be seen on the unit's LCD and a ring-tone will be heard through your car stereo speakers. You can then manually answer the incoming call from the head unit's front-panel controls. You can also set the unit to automatically answer an incoming call within 5 seconds.
    • Making A Call: You can make a call using the Clarion in-dash head unit's front-panel controls.
      • Direct Dial: Outgoing calls can be made be entering telephone numbers (0-9, *, #, +) directly via the car stereo's rotary control knob.
      • Phonebook: You can search for contact names in your mobile phone's phonebook from the Clarion CZ702 and then make your call. The head unit can store up to 500 contact numbers.
      • Call Log: You can also make a call by searching your mobile phone's call history (Received/Dialed/Missed) from the Clarion CZ702.
      • Redial: You can simply redial the last number dialed with a press of a single button on the in-dash head unit.

    Integrated Microphone: The Clarion CZ702 features an integrated front-panel microphone to carry on your side of a conversation during a Bluetooth phone call. You can adjust the microphone gain (+/-5) for each paired mobile phone device.

    External Microphone (optional): The Clarion RCB-204 (sold separately) is an external microphone which can be connected to Clarion CZ702. The external microphone provides better performance in noisy environments than the integrated microphone found on the front-panel of the head unit. The microphone features an attached 13.25' cord terminated by a right-angle male 3.5mm connector which plugs into the microphone input on the rear-chassis of your compatible Clarion head unit. The microphone also features an integrated sun-visor clip for mounting the external microphone in your vehicle. The integrated bracket allows the microphone to swivel left-to-right and rotate up-or-down.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The Clarion CZ702 also supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone. The CZ702 will be able to control your stored music's basic playback functions; such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, and Fast-Forward/Reverse. The CZ702 also supports audio streaming of music apps from your smartphone, but without control or metadata. You will continue to use your Bluetooth enabled smartphone to view & control streaming music apps. When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.

    Note: The iPhone 5 only offers Bluetooth audio streaming without control or metadata display.

    Magna Bass EX (Extend): The Magna Bass Extend feature does not adjust the low frequencies like the normal sound adjustment function, but emphasizes the deep bass frequencies to provide you with a dynamic sound. This circuit boosts bass at an ultra-low frequency of about 50Hz, creating a rich, deep, defined bass rather than the muddy, booming bass of a standard loudness control. What is more, boost levels are dependent on the system volume, resulting in balanced system response and dynamic bass reproduction.

    Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.

    Display Features

    Detachable Face Security: This unit features Detachable Face Security. A hard plastic face-case is included to protect the head unit's face when detached. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can also be purchased for this unit

    H.M.I. Design: Clarion's superior H.M.I. (Human-Machine Interface) Design features an easy-to-use rotary volume control and easy-to-read illuminated buttons on the face which are laid out in an asymmetrical design to place the most used features within a specific area for ease of use and less user distraction.

    728-Variable Color Illumination: The CZ702 is equipped with a high visibility, 728 Variable-Color Illumination LCD that allows numbers and characters to be displayed clearly in all lighting conditions. You can select the exact color you want for the head unit's display and button illumination to match your car's instrument panel or personal preference.

    Illumination Dimmer: The receiver's display automatically dims to a preset brightness when the vehicle's headlights are turned on. The wiring harness includes an orange/white lead that should be connected to the vehicle's parking light circuit in order for the dimmer feature to operate.

    Screen Saver: This unit is provided with a Screen Saver function which allows you to show various kinds of patterns and characters in the operation status indication area of the display in a random order. You can turn this function on or off. If the button operation is performed with the screen saver function "On", the operation display corresponding to the button operation is shown for about 30 seconds and then the display returns to the screen saver display.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote: The CZ702 comes supplied with an IR remote control (RCX001) for wireless operation of the CD player. The remote operates off of a single CR3025 Lithium cell 3-volt battery. The remote does not offer Bluetooth hands-free communication control, but does not provide playback operation for Bluetooth audio streaming.

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    I purchased a Sony MEX-N5000BT CD Receiver from Crutchfield and it was wonderful, but the fact that I had to mount an ugly mic, and that I would have to manually connect to Bluetooth each time was a big disappointment. I told Crutchfield about it and they sent this unit and refunded me the difference. Not only was this receiver $10 cheaper than the Sony, but it automatically connected me to Bluetooth, it played phone sounds through the speakers (The Sony did not) which I like, it's not for everyone, but I like knowing when I received texts. It also works with Hey Siri so I can text through voice, and if you have a text to voice app it will also play your texts you receive. (I'd disable this if you have passengers, awkward moments haha) Overall this does so much better.

    Pros: Colors are more defined Works with Siri Bluetooth auto connects Skip, Pause, Play, and Thumbs up and down songs all from the receiver Mic is built into the receiver USB is in the back of the receiver which allowed me to run it through the the A-Pillar so I could have a flush mount phone up higher and charge my phone. (Some may prefer usb in the front, but if you have Bluetooth there is no need for this, it just adds more wires and make it look less clean and professional looking, plus there

    Cons: The menu is hard to navigate without instructions. Took me 10 minutes to figure out how to set the clock, and only did I figure it out when I read the instructions. If you keep the manual, this will be easy. I advise leaving it in your glove box.

    Awesome stereo. Bluetooth works great. I use the bluetooth and use my phones media player to play FLAC files and the SQ is great! I only have 2 gripes. First, the display is too dim to be seen in daylight at all. The next is that i have Infinity primus 3 ohm components and after 5-10 minutes of high volume listening, The amp guard protection circuit comes on and I have to restart the radio. After I get my new amp for mids and hight problem will be gone. At normal listening volume or a little louder it works flawlessly.

    Pros: sound quality. all of the adjustability and outputs. Hot amp outputs. Bluetooth works great.

    Cons: Amp protection circuit trips with 3 ohm speakers at high volume. such as most Infinities including primus and reference and the JBL lineup. I think Harman is on a 3 ohm speaker kick. Second the display is terrible in the light no matter what color you choose.

    Sound and build quality is precisely what you would expect out of Clarion; clear clean sound in a solid package. The menu system for iPod access feels a tad convoluted; however this may be a side effect of using an older iPod Classic as opposed to a more modern device. For the price and the features, however, it is hard to beat. Highly recommended.

    Pros: Ease of installation, build quality, sound quality, overall feature set

    Cons: Menu navigation is lackluster, but useable.

    Nice head unit. Sounds great, easy to install, and looks very nice. Doesn't look OEM, but doesn't look cheesy either. Bluetooth and USB are great to have as options and work perfectly -- my Android phone pairs up with the stereo as soon as I turn on the car. USB is awesome, load up a big flash drive with tons of music and just set it to shuffle on a long road trip. Perfect.

    Display does get a little washed out in bright sunlight, but that could be party because I like the white/blue backlighting at night -- a bolder color might show better in the daytime. Keep the manual handy for a while.... this thing has so many features and adjustable options it took me a while to get the navigation down. Once you've used it a while though it's very logically laid out. Very happy with it, especially for $120.00 -- 15 years ago I was paying 3x that for the old Clarion DRX series that didn't have half the features of this, amazing how far things have come.

    Pros: Value for money, looks, features, sound quality.

    Cons: Display is a little light, too many options!

    You certainly can't beat it for the cost (119.00) is what i paid at Crutchfield. That's quite a discount. The sound is definitely an improvement over my older model Clarion. I've read reviews where the reviewer says that they hear sounds they never heard in their music before, well i have to agree and I've heard many systems before.

    My goal was to go 3way active. Sometimes i feel illiterate with wiring, but this wasn't too difficult and it turned out just fine. Nice looking HU too. Next i'm looking to upgrade my tweets and i'll be happy for a while. I have never had one problem with Crutchfields service. They answer quickly and they have good answers.

    Pros: Sound quality, easy to wire, and not to difficult to program the settings.

    Cons: Nothing negative that i can think of at this time.

    The Unit far exceeds radios of the past. There is so much you can do to manipulate the sound with this unit that it's easy to get lost. Take the time to read the instructions and play around with the audio settings and you will not be disappointed with your purchase. Sound quality is top notch and the installation is simple. Functionality takes some getting used to but pays off in the end.

    Pros: Good construction and design. Feels sturdy and reliable.

    Cons: Easily get lost in the audio settings and capabilities. Difficult at times to figure out what portion of the settings to be in to adjust something and then save the adjustments.

    Replaced older model with this new model. This one adds Bluetooth and 5 volts Preout. I really liked the 5V preout, much cleaner signal to the amps. Subwoofer control is buried in menus, takes too long to get to adjustment.

    Pros: 5v preout. Pretty easy to use. Clean sound. Great deal for this price range.

    Cons: Menus take a bit to get through to adjust subwoofer level.

    What a peace of crap! Never worked right, not even once. Blue tooth takes multiple trys to link to every time i got in my truck. cd, for 1 reason or another, will not pick up unless u eject the cd and put it back in. i have been installing car stareos into my own cars for the pass 20yrs, and never have i had such a hard time with with a EQ, absoulute trash. had to take to a Clarion dealer just to get the right snd out of it. On top of it all, this deck died after no more then 35hrs of use, Buy Anything Else and you will be much happier, then with this trash. the snd quality was good for the 30 or so hrs the deck worked.

    Pros: snd quality??

    Getting SiriusXM in the unit for this price is nuts. That was the closer for me. In my Dakota, I didn't need much power and this unit worked out great. Always liked Clarion as a good brand product without the big time price. Happy I installed it and happier with Crutchfield's instruction sheets. Easy to follow instructions on dash disassembly. First time buyer at Crutchfield's Online and I know it won't be the last.

    Pros: Great price, great instructions, great delivery time.

    Overall a great stereo for the money. I needed 3 sets of pre-outs due to keeping my Bose system and then to have the ability to add my own sub and this unit has it. Bluetooth works great for my iPhone and streams music with no issues. USB port with a decently long cable. Great radio for the money and am overall pretty happy with it.

    Pros: 3 sets of pre-outs, USB port, Bluetooth.

    Cons: Hate the built in EQ...would rather just have treble and bass adjustments.

    I installed in a 99 Town & Country. The factory stereo cd player stopped working years ago. I finally decided it was time to take the dive and just purchase a new stereo. I am so glad I did. The sound is incredible with my factory speakers. The sound quality really shocked me. I used to have this annoying vibration at the rear speaker, it seemed to vibrate the window. Well I am happy to say, that is gone. Not to mention I still have my steering wheel controls. I purchased a module that connects the stereo to my steering wheel controls and I am extremely pleased. I recommend this stereo with 5+ stars.

    Pros: Sound Quality is awsome. The back lights are pretty cool, I left mine on factory setting, and they constantly change color. Blue tooth, USB, and the list goes on. Highly recommend.

    Kinda wish I bought something else

    Blue tooth sucks and cuts out alot, have to go in and reconnect every time you enter (brothers Boss automatically does this at alot less cash then I paid) and to make my life better a week or two after the price dropped. But what can you do :( Really the cut out issues are the most annoying thing about it and ill probably have to go back to a aux cord which I bought this to get away from.

    Pros: Sounds pretty good, looks good

    Cons: Blue tooth is crap with the i pod touch instructions are crap Adjustments are complicated, more of an advanced user unit

    Just installed this receiver in my RAV4. So far, so good. Instructions for setup somewhat confusing but once figured it out (via call to Help line at Crutchfield) it was a breeze to "program". Color coded wiring harnesses (2) a MUST to make installation "possible". Connecting "dimmer" lead from receiver to "dimmer" lead on wiring harness disables auto headlights off when car is locked via remote. Another phone call to Crutchfield suggested not using the "dimmer" lead from receiver - problem solved. Overall, happy with product, installation and customer support.

    Pros: Price, Features, Appearance, Operation, Bluetooth excellent as well as SiruisXM

    Cons: Somewhat difficult to set-up once installed. Display could be brighter for daytime viewing, perfect at night.

    Overall this head unit is no harder or easier to master than your average single DIN unit. This has active crossover capability so it's better than anything at this price point and much higher! The color matching worked perfectly for my Kia and, aside from it being annoying to program time alignment and custom EQ from a single line display, it made my Polk dB/JBL GTO/PPI budget SQ system in my commuter sound better than I would have though cheap stuff could sound. I'd change the order and/or name of some things in the menu but honestly it takes 10 min to get used to what Clarion calls things. Oh, and it has Bluetooth but no external mic. The mic is in the head unit. It works fine, people say hey head me just fine. If you have a bigger or noisy car than your average econo ride then maybe buying the external mic is needed but I doubt it for most cars.

    Pros: Time alignment Active crossovers Great sound quality Build quality is good CD inserts and comes out fast HD radio with module Bluetooth works fine Buttons all make sense

    Cons: Two line display would be nice

    At first I was scared to buy this product cause it seemed to cheap to be good. The kids talked me into it tho and I'm so glad they did. The kids are 14 and 12 and just think its the coolest radio ever. Being teens I guess we can take there word for it lol. I was very pleased with how well it sounded. The kids love the fact they have a remote control now so they don't have to yell from the back mom can you change this or mom can you turn this up. I would defiantly suggest this radio to my friends. For the price of it you cant pass it up!!

    Bought this for my son. With the included wire harness for his Ford, installation was a breeze! He was able to use his i-phone in no time.

    Pros: easy install, MUCH room for expanding, sound quality is great, easy pairing

    Cons: owners manual could be better

    I bought this unit to replace a terrible stereo that the previous owner had installed. What a difference! The installation took less than an hour, and it powered right up, and paired with my phone. The sound is much improved, although I still plan to put better speakers I'm later! Excellent stereo for the money.

    Pros: Great product for the money!

    Cons: None.

    Love this player. Purchased it mainly for the Bluetooth features for steaming music from my many Apple products. I also enjoy the viable color display, really pops with my red leather interior and red gauges. Install was fairly straight forward. The harnesses and mounting hardware provided by Crutchfield were on point for a seamless install.

    Pros: Viable color display allows for a broad range of customization as with more expensive packages without the cost. Great Bluetooth features with easy pairing and steaming audio.

    Cons: no complaints for the cost.

    Great for the price

    Replaced the head unit in my 96 Maxima with no issues. All features seem to work great, but I don't use HD or SiriusXM. For reference, this is much louder than the factory head unit was. Turning it to 30% is already much louder than the stock unit at 100% (which is uncomfortable for me anyway). I can't see why anyone would need an amplifier unless they were trying to entertain a crowd at a tailgate. I wish it would read FLAC or use m3u playlists, but it's still a great upgrade and those are downfalls I can deal with.

    Pros: USB/iPod connection in the back means I don't have to have my iPod in the front anymore. AM/FM tuner is sensitive. Display seems good enough to me. Bluetooth call quality seems excellent. People haven't had a problem hearing me with the built in mic. It seems to have some noise reduction as well. Bluetooth audio streaming works without a hitch.

    Cons: USB connection appears to be hardwired into the unit, so if it becomes damaged it's not a quick replacement. 2 line display is fine, but it would be nice if it allowed for faster scrolling through long lists of tracks. No matter how fast you turn the volume knob, the scroll speed is limited. It's not terribly intuitive. I decided to keep the manual in the glove box in case I ever need to find a function or setting because some are hidden by long-pressing buttons, and I usually just toss manua
