Our take on the Boss BV9386NV

by Dominic Devito
Boss

Why install a car stereo with built-in GPS?

Imagine taking a trip as your car's receiver gives you directions, finds the best restaurant for dinner, and plays movies for your back seat denizens. Navigation receivers cover all the bases, with GPS guidance, DVD playback, and a host of other useful features. You can search through millions of points of interest to locate gas stations, restaurants, museums, and other interesting spots, wherever you are. Most receivers offer Bluetooth capability for hands-free calling, along with the ability to search through your iPod playlists with touchscreen controls.

A stylish way to stay on track

The BV9386NV DVD navigation receiver from Boss enhances your dash's appearance and makes you look like a genius for adding on-the-go guidance without spending a fortune. It's got a sweet 6.2" display, which provides accurate maps and directions across the entire United States. And you can dial up your favorite audio and video sources right through the user-friendly touchscreen. Got a phone with Bluetooth®? The BV9386NV also lets you make hands-free calls and stream audio from compatible devices.

Drive with confidence

This Boss receiver provides convenient guidance that'll easily complement your driving style. You'll get directions across all 50 states, Canada, and Puerto Rico, and have access to six million points of interest when it's time for a pit stop. You'll hear actual street names at turns. Lane guidance ensures you'll be in the correct position for your next turn, and you can see realistic views of some highway signs for added assurance.

The BV9386NV's powered by iGO 8 navigation software, the standard in many factory navigation systems. iGO 8 offers rapid maps, spot-on directions, and a wide range of features to help you explore your surroundings. It'll even show traffic updates in your area if the FM station you're tuned to includes that in the RDS information of its broadcast.

Bluetooth calling and music streaming

The BV9386NV offers Bluetooth connectivity, so you'll be able to make and take calls using your compatible phone through the stereo. You can talk right through the built-in mic on the front panel, so your callers will hear you clearly. You can stream music from your smartphone, and control basic playback functions with the receiver's touchscreen.

Sound and vision

A composite A/V output lets you send movies or other video content to external video monitors, so you can keep the backseat crew entertained. A 10-band equalizer lets you tweak the audio settings to suit your tastes, and the full complement of preamp outputs includes a dedicated subwoofer out with low-pass filter and level control.

Jam on it

Bring your favorite CDs and DVDs on the road with you, including discs loaded with MP3 or WMA files. The receiver's front card slot accommodates your SD card loaded with jams for the long haul. A front USB input makes it easy to connect a thumb drive full of music, or you can jack a satellte radio tuner or other device into audio/video input.

 A dedicated input on the rear panel accommodates an optional rear-view camera to let you get in and out of tight spaces more easily. Your passengers will appreciate the included wireless remote control which allows them to choose their favorite tunes from anywhere in the vehicle.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

The BV9386NV also offers built-in steering wheel remote compatibility with select Toyota, Honda, Subaru, and Suzuki vehicles (wiring is required). Check "Details" for more information.

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.

    Touchscreen + Remote Features

    6.2" Touchscreen Display: The Boss BV9386NV navigation receiver features a fixed 6.2" widescreen touchscreen LCD monitor. The screen has a resolution of 800 RGB x 480 with 1,152,000 total pixels. This unit has touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics, making menu navigation easy.

    Start Up Time: The Boss BV9386NV has a start up time of approximately 10.5 seconds from Off to an AV Source screen, and a start up time of 29.5 seconds from Off to the Navigation Menu.

    Hard-Key Controls: In addition to the unit's LCD touchscreen controls, the BV9386NV also features hard-key controls on the left edge of the screen (including a 3-way rotary audio control).

    12/24 Hour Clock: You can set the unit to display a 12 or 24 hour clock. The clock is visible from any source.

    Parking Brake Detection: To prevent the display of video while the vehicle is in motion, the green wire within the harness must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. You cannot view video unless your vehicle's parking brake is engaged. If you attempt to view video without the parking brake engaged, you will get a blank screen. While your vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view all of the head unit's menu screens/settings, source information, metadata, and the navigation on-screen map.

    2-DIN Chassis: The BV9386NV has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double-DIN"), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets, or Euro-mounted using the supplied mounting sleeve. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    Remote Control: The BV9386NV includes a 44-button IR remote control for wireless operation of the navigation receiver. The navigation receiver also offers built-in steering wheel remote compatibility with select Toyota, Honda, Subaru, and Suzuki vehicles (the three SWC wires of the harness hardwire to the vehicle's wiring behind the steering column). The head unit is also compatible with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately and listed under the accessory tab) for CAN Buss vehicles.

    Onboard Navigation

    iGO8 & TomTom Navigation Software: The Boss BV9386NV offers a comprehensive map database from TomTom covering the entire United States (including Alaska & Hawaii), Canada, and Puerto Rico. Navigation data is stored on the unit's preloaded 4GB microSD-card for quick access and response. The BV9386NV's integrated iGO8 navigation software provides turn-by-turn visual and voice assistance to direct you to your selected destination. The built-in software quickly calculates step-by-step directions to any destination available on the included navigation map.

    Note: Car navigation maps are frequently updated. While this database was judged to be as accurate as possible at the time of its release, a map database can never be 100% accurate. Road information that is maintained in the map databases, such as turn restrictions or road names may change over time.

    Map Updates: It is easy to keep the navigation system up to date. Simply purchase & download new map data from the naviextras.com online portal, store the updated map data on a microSD card, and insert it into the Boss BV9386NV via the front-panel microSD card slot.

    GPS (Global Position System): The built-in iGO8 navigation software helps you find your way to your destination with an integrated GPS receiver & external GPS antenna. The GPS antenna is designed to be installed on your dash inside the vehicle. The iGO8 navigation software uses Global Position System (GPS) satellites, and a digital roadway map database to calculate and display vehicle positioning and travel direction. The built-in navigation software considers vehicle speed an heading changes, together with longitude and latitude information, to accurately determine vehicle heading and position on a digital map. Signal from GPS satellites are used to determine the vehicle location.

    On-Screen Map: The unit's on-screen map shows your vehicle's current position (a dark blue arrow by default), the recommended route (an orange line), the surrounding map area, and your destination as a checkered flag. The on-screen map shows streets, roads, and highways in a way that is similar to how a paper road map show them. A road's width and colors corresponds to their importance, so you can easily tell a freeway from a small street. When navigating a route, the top section of the map screen shows information about your next route maneuver and the next street or the next city/town. When approaching a turn, the map screen will zoom in and raise the view angle to let you easily recognize your maneuver at the next junction. If the next turn is at a distance, it will zoom out and lower the view angle to be flat so you can see the road in front of you.

    • 2D/3D Map Mode: The BV9386NV allows you to view its on-screen map in a 2D (two-dimensional) or 3D (three-dimensional) view. Similar to paper road maps, the 2D mode, shows you streets, roads, and elevation by color. In 3D mode, you can see the altitude and elevations differences. You can distinguish between valleys, mountains, and elevated roads. In selected cities 3D landmarks and 3D buildings are also displayed.
    • Color Mode: The navigation map screen uses different color themes (Day/Night) during the day and during the night for both the map and the menu screen. Daytime colors are similar to paper road maps, and the menus are bright. The nigh color themes use dark colors for large objects to keep the average brightness of the screen low.

    Lane Information & Signposts: The Boss BV9386NV's navigation map offers helpful lane information & signpost guidance.

    • Lane Information: When navigation on multilane roads, it is important to take the appropriate lane in order to follow the recommended route. If lane information is available in the map data, the map screen will display the lanes and their directions using small arrows at the bottom of the map. High lighted arrows represent the lanes you need to take.
    • Signposts: Where additional information is available, signposts substitute arrows. Signposts are displayed at the top of the map. The color and style of the signposts are similar to the real ones you can see above the road or by the roadside, They show the available destinations and the number of the road the lane leads to.

    Audible Alerts: The Boss BV9386NV offers various audible alerts and functions to help you get to your destination safely.

    • Voice Guidance (Text-to-Speech): In addition to graphic directions, the BV9386NV provides voice guidance and turn-by-turn directions. The volume of the voice prompts can be increased with increases in speed to overcome road noise. Voice guidance can be turned off if you prefer.
    • Safety Alert: This function can warn you when you approach road safety cameras, school zones, or railroad crossings (if available). You can also add your own alert points. Beeps or the spoken type of alert will be heard when you are approaching of these points.
    • Speed Limit Warning: Some maps may contain information about the speed limits of certain road segments. The BV9386NV provides an audible warning if you exceed the recommended speed limit.
    Note: When driving at high speed, the noise in the car may be too loud to clearly hear the voice guidance and other sounds. Using Dynamic Volume you can instruct IGO 8 to increase the volume when your speed exceeds a certain minimum, and reach its highest volume at the given maximum speed. The unit will mute the audio of the other sources during navigation voice-prompts.

    Destination Search: The Destination Search menu gives you many different ways to choose your destination. An on-screen keyboard appears to allow you to enter your destination from one of the following categories:

    Destination Search Description
    Find on Map Search for a destination by scrolling the map display.
    Find Address Enter full/partial address, or Search for a city (central location), or Search for the intersection of two roads.
    Find POI Search for points-of-interest (POIs) near your current location, in a specific city, along your current route, or near your destination. You can search by name of place or by category.
    Favorites Store your favorite locations for easy recall, like your home or work address.
    History Destinations that you have set previously
    Coordinates Allows you to search your destination by longitude and latitude values.

    Route Calculation: The Boss BV9386NV calculates your route based on your Vehicle Type, Route Method, and Avoidances.

    • Vehicle Type: You select what type of vehicle you are driving, so the navigation unit can determine the best route based on your vehicle type (Car, Truck, Emergency, Bus, or Taxi).
    • Route Method: You can choose which route method (Fastest, Shortest, Economical, or Easy) the navigation unit should use when calculating your route.
      • Fastest: give a quick route, if you can travel at or near the speed limit on all roads. Usually the best section for fast and normal cars
      • Shortest: gives a route that has the smallest total distance of all possible routes. It can be practical for slow vehicles
      • Economical: combines the benefits of Fast and Short; calculates as if it were calculating the Fast route, but it takes other roads as well to save fuel
      • Easy: results in a route with fewer turns and no difficult maneuvers
    • Avoidances: You can tell the navigation unit to avoid certain types of roads along your calculated route, such as - Highways, Tolls, Carpool/HOV, Unpaved Roads, and/or Ferries.

    Itinerary w/ Route Simulation: The Itinerary page displays turn-by-turn instructions for your entire route and the distance between turns. You can preview all the route information and simulate travel along a projected route.

    Auto Reroute: If you depart from the original route, the navigation system recalculates the route and provides new directions.

    Trip Monitor: The Trip Monitor contains useful information about your trip. This information can be saved manually when you reach your destination or automatically along your route. Trip log data includes; Start/End Time, Avg./Max. Speed, Total/Driving/Stopped Time, Total Distance, and Min./Max. Altitude.

    Safety Mode: Safety Mode disables the touchscreen above 6 mph to keep your attention on the road.

    Great System for the proce

    Written By David, Orlando, FL on Friday, August 22, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I did not buy this from Crutchfield cause at that time i found it cheaper somewhere else, but I did buy Crutchfields wire adaptor and instructions. My wife and I soldered the wires and shrink wrapped in about 20 min, the install was simple in our toyota, the system is outstanding for the price (250.00 at Fry's, no longer in stock) so the 289 price that crutchfield has is more than worth it......great service and recieved my parts in just a few days......love the Boss BV9386NV and am going to buy another one soon for my other car.
    Pros:
    everything works great if you follow directions
    Cons:
    NON at this time

    It's Decent

    Written By Jon, Portland, OR on Tuesday, June 10, 2014
     
    This thing is awesome for the price. I paid for it at Frys Electronics and purchased the install adapters here. The navigation works great, it has built in steering wheel controls that needs NO adapters, you just need to tap into your cars steering wheel control wire(s). Unfortunately it has no instructions on how to do that, but I figured it out. I LOVE the 10 band EQ. It plays DVD (even burnt ones) just fine. The bluetooth audio works just fine, the radio is okay. The way to tune the radio is a little clunky. It has easy to use subwoofer control. My biggest complaint is that it's a tiny bit slow to turn on and connect to your phone, and VERY slow to start up the navigation software. Like 25 seconds until you can finally use it. My favorite thing is that I can change tracks in Spotify (on my phone) with my steering wheel.
    Pros:
    -Tons of features at a low cost -10 band EQ -Built in steering wheel controls -No adapters or extra cost for navigation to work
    Cons:
    -Slow startup time for navigation -Some of the user interface is clunky -Little to no instructions for wiring -It's a little quiet compared to my stock radio

    Crutchfield response on Monday, June 16, 2014

    Entry level but it works

    Written By patrick, Mount Vernon, WA on Sunday, June 01, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Had this installed for about a month now. It is a very basic system but it works pretty well. Navigation is pretty spot on. Sound quality is decent. Because it is so basic it is pretty easy to use.
    Pros:
    Cheap. Easy to use.
    Cons:
    You have to exit navigation if you want to change the track on a cd.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I wouldn't buy this product. I had to return it for a different navigation system.
    Pros:
    Great navigation. Hood displays.
    Cons:
    Stereo would not pick up. Every station had static.

    8 questions already asked Show all answers

    I just ordered this unit as it is an amazing price for what it offers. I have never had a car with nav or a DVD player in it. My question is will the DVD play while the car is moving? I have young kids and would like to use the DVD feature on a rear monitor I have for the car with the disc being played through the new head unit. [ TheCactusjac7  Aug 26, 2014 ]

    • The DVD will play only on a rear monitor if you plug in a rear monitor while the car is moving. Otherwise the in dash screen will only play with the parking brake on. The Navigation worked on this unit for the first couple of months we had it and it worked well. But recently I found that the navigation will not even turn on. [ hyeson   Aug 27, 2014 ]
    • I don't think it has any video outputs, only an input for a rear cam. I also think it is designed to specifically NOT play video unless the parking brake is set. [ ANN E   Aug 26, 2014 ]
    • Hmm good question. Unfortunately that is one feature I haven't tried since I don't have young children. I would assume the DVD would play while the car is in motion....that is what is what is was designed to do. Good Luck [ Virginia T.   Aug 26, 2014 ]
    • No it will not. The car must be in park. It is illegal to have a movie playing in the front dash while driving. [ Madison   Aug 26, 2014 ]
    My Mercedes CLK 500 has a top of the line 6 speaker system. I'm assuming that this until would still be plug and play for my car? Also, I have a six disc MP3 Changer in the glove compartment. Is it safe to assume that I will no longer be able to access this? (not that it matter when I can use an SD or thumb drive. Then the last and most important question. My drivers information center on the dash includes disc and track information. Is the change going to cause issues with my dash or cause any error codes to constantly display? Whew... that's a lot of questions. If the answers are all bad, is there another unit with GPS that would be better suited for my Mercedes CLK 500??? [ Blake  Aug 13, 2014 ]

    • You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Krissy Staff  Aug 17, 2014 ]

    Can a longer gps antenna be bought for this system? [ Lyndle  Aug 05, 2014 ]
    1 answer
    • I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Boss does not offer any type of GPS antenna extension cable and in checking on all the accessories for this radio I don't find any available from any other manufacturer. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Staff  Aug 06, 2014 ]

    Does the radio come with the wiring harness to connect not the rca wires but the actual wiring harness to install radio? boss audio bv9386nv Thank you... [ chaun  Apr 30, 2014 ]
    3 answers
    • Yes, the radio comes with a regular wiring harness. Crutchfield also sent me the matching harness for my car (2006 Mustang). You just need to hook the radio harness to the one that Crutchfield sends you and it is plug and play. Their customer service is great if you run into any problems. [ James Bryan   Apr 30, 2014 ]
    • Yes, the RCA connection wires attach to the left side of the rear of the unit and you don't need those unless you have cameras and other input devices. The wire harness you need to hook up to existing radio connection is on the right side of the rear of the unit, both wires harnesses should come together when you order them. [ Joseph   Apr 30, 2014 ]
