­­­­­Sleek functionality

Need a break from all that bridge traffic? Blaupunkt's New Jersey 220 CD receiver offers multiple entertainment options, including a USB port for your digital music files, an old-school CD player, and Bluetooth® audio streaming. Blaupunkt wraps all that up into a double-DIN (4" tall) radio with subtle styling that looks great in your dash.

Built-in Bluetooth

You can answer a call from a Bluetooth-enabled phone with the push of a button, and your end of the conversation is picked up by the microphone that's built into faceplate. Blaupunkt also included a rear input for an optional mic, a good option if you drive a convertible or another vehicle with a noisy cabin. The New Jersey 220 supports Bluetooth audio streaming too, so you can stream music wirelessly from compatible devices to the receiver, plus control basic functions like track up or down.

Your choice of music

In addition to audio streaming, the New Jersey 220 also offers crystal-clear CD playback, a sensitive AM/FM tuner for radio broadcasts, a convenient front aux input for your portable audio player, and a USB port for iPod, iPhone® or a thumb drive full of MP3 or WMA music.

This Blaupunkt helps you get the most out of your music with a beefy built-in amp that'll make your speakers sound more dynamic. You can tailor the sound to your preferences with the 3-band parametric equalizer, and you'll find the two sets of preamp outputs handy for adding an amp or powered subwoofer.

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: The Blaupunkt New Jersey 220 BT is equipped with built-in Bluetooth (2.0+EDR) 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. 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:

    • Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.2 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP 1.3 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile)
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the New Jersey 220 BT.

    Pairing: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the Blaupunkt CD receiver. You can pair up to 3 Bluetooth-enabled devices, but only one can be used at a time.

You'll be able to answer incoming calls, as well as dial outgoing calls.

    • Answer/End Incoming Call: When there is an incoming call, the current audio source is muted and a ring tone is played via the loudspeakers of the car sound system. The head unit's display will indicate "INCOMING CALL" and the phone number of the caller. If the phone number is one of your phone book contacts, then the unit will also display the caller's name. "PRIVATE NUMBER" is displayed when there is no caller information transmitted. You can answer the incoming call from the head unit's front-panel controls. You'll be able to speak into the head unit's integrated mic on the front-panel during your phone conversation, while the other party is heard through your vehicle's speakers.

    Works great in Volvo V70

    I installed one of these in our 98 Volvo V 70. It took a little work with a Dremel to make it fit. It now works great, sounds good, and looks cool. I also put one in our Chimook RV with the same results. I like to larger buttons and simple controls - less time with eyes on the stereo to change functions.

    Pros: Ease of use, sound, reception of radio stations better than previous units.

    Cons: Modification of dash opening needed

    Messed up the Most Basic Part (The Clock)

    Overall a great radio that is built to look and feel like OEM when installed in the car. However, that does not excuse the glaring issue that the programming for the Head Unit is flawed at the basic level in how the clock behaves. The system defaults the display to the input, not the time. Given that this is a user preference, one would think you could change the preference; however, that is not the case. You can select to display the time; however, any button push (E.G. changing the volume) will then cause the system to display the input again. When on "AUX", it tells you that you are utilizing the AUX input from two locations because it forces back to the input versus the time. When the radio shuts down completely, instead of showing the time, the head unit turns completely off. I originally thought that this was defective; however, after speaking with Blaupunkt they confirmed that this is how the head unit is supposed to work. Potential to be one of the best head units out there; however, critically flawed at the most basic level gives it a would not recommend rating.

    Pros: Looks good in the dash. Decent sound quality. Overall simple menu to navigate.

    Cons: The clock. Everything about the clock. Fix the clock and there will be none.

    Radio system works as described. Was a pain to install in a 2003 Yukon XL SLT. Had to cutout supports in the dash to wedge it in. once it was all done it looked real nce.

    Pros: Bluetooth Pairing worked flawlessly. Simple operational interface. Good sound quality when paired with the Bose system in the Yukon.

    Cons: Not a lot of customization in the system.

    Sound product from a quality company, this radio fit perfectly in my 07 ford truck. Sound quality is great, it was easy to install, and it has a sleek and simple design, nothing too flashy.

    Pros: Easy to use, simple design, affordable

    Cons: menus are tricky to navigate until you get used to them

    Aesthetically pleasing, but terrible performance.

    I bought this cd player originally because I wanted a double din CD player to replace the factory double din in my truck, and my truck is a basic model so I wanted something that was simple in its look to kind of fit with the rest of the interior. It succeeded on that part, and failed on almost every single other part.

    1. Sound quality was lackluster, and forced speakers to crack at mid-high levels. EQ options are very minimal.

    2. Bluetooth almost always skips for a few minutes before eventually settling it to a working fashion.

    3. Very simple, almost overly so. There is not much here in the way of controls, and yet it was still complicated to do a few simple things.

    4. Compact Disc reading was incredibly slow. Skipping tracks lagged, and moving around through the cd, bluetooth or anything involving your music was sluggish at best. The overall performance of this thing is absolute garbage for nearly $200.00. Build quality also seems not as good as other brands.

    Overall I was disappointed with the performance of this cd player, so I sent it back and replaced it with the Pioneer FH-X720BT. I was IMMEDIATELY BLOWN AWAY, by the difference in performance of these two units.

    The Pioneers sound quality right out the gate blows the Blaupunkts out of the water. The performance is quick and agile, moving through tracks with ease. The bluetooth connection is 100 times better, and the buttons and menu allow for much more customization.

    Overall would highly NOT RECOMMEND this unit.

    Pros: Simple Looks

    Cons: Everything else

    I am pleased that I made the decision to pay more than I could have by purchasing some average equipment. This unit makes the stock speakers in my truck sound far better than what I had before. The reason I gave 4 stars on "ease of use" is that it took me awhile to understand the users guide. The unit has so many cool options of use that it takes awhile to understand but then becomes easy. I really am enjoying this player so much that I am going to by another to use in my outdoor bar and then will have use for the remote control that comes with it. I don't have use for that in my truck.

    I am very happy with the purchase of this unit. The installation was fairly straight forward and it looks great in my Honda Civic. It took me a little time to learn about the operation and all of it's functions but I am comfortable now. I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking for a reasonable price on a very aesthetically pleasing unit.

    Cons: There needs to be more emphasis placed on removing the two transport screws installed at the factory for the CD player. I missed this during the initial installation and had to take the unit back out of the dash just to remove the screws so that my CD player would work.

    Initially I had some issues with the wiring connection, but after going through it again everything went well. BT was easy to pair. Sound quality is good. Control buttons are easy to use.

    Cons: Unfortunately, I live on an island with irregular topography. News radio stations in PR are broadcast over the AM band which seems to be poor if you compare it with the factory radio.

    Very please with unit and features. Replaced second malfunctioned factory unit in Mercury Milan. The sound and control is far superior even with factory speakers. Can now actually hear tweeters and sub-woofers.

    Pros: Conservative design looks like it belongs in Milan. Previously had 6 CD player that always jammed. Now have choice of one CD at a time or USB flash drive with lots of albums on long trips. Many sound and receiver function settings and options. Receiver much stronger than OEM. Bluetooth works with my smart phone better than old dedicated speaker phone and automatically connects.

    Cons: Numerous menu options take awhile to work through until set up mainly by trial and error. But end result is worth effort.

    Beautiful but a bit shallow

    The unit looks as simple as its operation. It was very easy to pair a cell phone to the Bluetooth receiver and all the functions you need are easy to locate and use. While I do not have a sub woofer in the car, I was still disappointed with the bass response. I listen to classical and modern rock, so its not like I'm pumping up the jams, and still the low end is almost non existent. I imagine with a subwoofer this would deliver, so I'm going to install one in a few weeks and see if it improves the overall balance. And in case anyone thinks it may be my new speakers that are causing the issue, they are also form Blaupunkt and are a part of their Blue series. Blaupunkt receiver with Blaupunkt speakers means a total Blaupunkt experience, and its lacking.

    Pros: Easy to use Easy Bluetooth pairing looks sharp

    Cons: not a well-rounded sound experience and probably needs a subwoofer setup to bring out the lows.

    Nice features without all the distracting flash. Bluetooth took 30 seconds to install and was painless. Great value for the price. Installation was exactly as the instructions.

    I really enjoy this head unit. The sound quality is leagues beyond stock quality of the stock DD Monsoon system on the MK4 GTIi. The Bluetooth streaming is easy and rather convenient, I've never had this option before. You will have to refer to the manual for several functions compared to a kenwood or something else more calibrated to US standards. The buttons don't feel cheap and backlighting is smooth, not to bright. I previously had my 10" sub hooked into a line out converter and yet to have hooked it in to the rca cables but I may just do without.The stock speakers have actually come to life! I cant comment on the install difficulty of the HU. It didn't come with the antenna adapter or the keys to remove the Monsoons system, so I had a local audio shop install mine. Do your research, great system!

    Pros: great sound over stock!

    Cons: none

    Good sound quality, easy to use and intuitive controls, and the Teutonic design matches the Audi console well. Disappointed that the light colors can't be changed, which is usually standard with Japanese brands.

    Pros: Clean design, good sound, easy to use

    Cons: Can't change backlight color

    6 questions already asked

    The cd player works fine for me. Did you remember to remove the cd player lock screws on the top of the box? The lock screws are there to prevent damage to the cd player during shipping. [ Melvin  Nov 17, 2014 ]
    Did you remove the shipping screws before install? [ Andrew  Nov 16, 2014 ]
    This was my problem at first also. Blaupunkt tech support reminded me to remove some kind of locking pin used for secure shipment. As I recall (this was some time ago, I got one of the earliest units) the installation instructions said nothing about this, but there was a sticker, red I think, on the case next to the offending pin (or whatever it was). Hope this helps [ Christopher  Nov 16, 2014 ]
    Mine worked but I do recall removing a couple screws from the top that have to come out before you can play cds, not sure if you already did that but it's the only reason I can think of other than a faulty unit. [ William Sterlin  Nov 16, 2014 ]
    Thank you guys for all your comments and suggestions.... I will remove the two screws as suggested, once again, Thank you !!! [ Cesar  Nov 16, 2014 ]
    I wish I could help you, but I've never used the CD player, only the USB and the bluetooth. Sorry [ Gene  Nov 15, 2014 ]
    You can see the red sticker in the picture. It basically says caution remove these screws before instillation. [ Marc  Nov 15, 2014 ]
    There are two screws on the top you have to remove before instullation. I did the same thing. You have to remove it, sorry. [ Marc  Nov 15, 2014 ]
    I really have no answer for you. no matter what function the radio is in, when I load the cd it starts reading it. [ STEPHEN  Nov 15, 2014 ]
    It's be a couple of months since I installed it but I believe there was a screw that had to be removed to free up the CD mechanism from the chassis of the unit. [ Sarge3  Nov 15, 2014 ]
    There is a lock screw for the CD player that keeps the laser from getting knocked off track during shipping. It must be removed in order to play a CD. Check the instructions for the location of this set screw and remove it. If you have already removed it, then the unit is likely damaged. I'm betting the guys at Crutchfield will provide a hassle-free exchange. Their customer service is outstanding. [ Tyson  Nov 15, 2014 ]
    No, sorry, I didn't have any issues with that. Did you try a factory reset? [ Leslie A von  Nov 15, 2014 ]
    The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Sep 16, 2014 ]  Staff

    Here is its "Sub-out  (via switchable pre-amplifier)" VIA Blaupiunkt website. [ Marc  Oct 30, 2014 ]
    Sorry it actually does. There is a setting for it. You will have to look in the owners manual, but I'm sure of it! [ Marc  Oct 30, 2014 ]
    It does not. It has 2 sets of rca outs for f and r. [ Marc  Sep 10, 2014 ]
    no. I speak at normal volume. My wife says it is actually clearer on the receiving end than the factory installed bluetooth in my Mitsubishi. [ STEPHEN  Sep 28, 2014 ]
    I can't complain. Very happy with the bluetooth mic. No problems with any phone calls [ Jeffery  Sep 10, 2014 ]
    I don't use the blue tooth sorry I wish I could help you. [ Andrew  Sep 09, 2014 ]
    I just finished installing mine yesterday and have not gotten around to playing with everything. Give me a day and I'll try and give a report [ Jeffery  Sep 08, 2014 ]
    Hi Rob, I have installed the Blaupunkt New Jersey 220 in a 2002 Toyota Tundra with the original speakers. I was worried about the ambient noise also. I have called/spoken with multiple people on the phone and then asked them how the sound was and they said it was very clear. A couple of these people had hearing aids also and they could hear clearly. I really like this stereo. Joseph R [ Joseph  Sep 08, 2014 ]
    No. The bluetooth connection in my Blaupunkt works well. I can use my normal voice. Also, it is clearer than the factory setup in my wife's 2013 Honda CRV. [ Stephen T.  Sep 08, 2014 ]
    Blue tooth hands free is worthless. Use a Bluetooth headset instead [ Chris  Sep 08, 2014 ]
    sorry,only bought this for using ipod and cd's [ DIMITRI  Aug 30, 2014 ]
    Hey Mark. I purchased one of these about a week ago. It works very well with my samsung galaxy 5s both for streaming audio and for phone calls. No complaints here. Hope this helps. [ Andrew  Aug 28, 2014 ]
    I have this problem too. It also resets my clock sometimes when I switch RDS on and off. [ Andrea  Nov 18, 2014 ]
    I'll have to check,I haven't figured out how to get it out of 24 hour time yet!! [ DIMITRI  Aug 30, 2014 ]
    There is a red or yellow wire that is attached to the constant + (red 12 v) of your vehicle. If this is not connected your stereo will not store any memory as if your battery was disconnected. [ Marc  Aug 28, 2014 ]
    I do not have this problem. [ Michael  Aug 25, 2014 ]
