Outstanding A/V functionality and smartphone integration
JVC's Arsenal Series KW-ADV65BT DVD receiver does a lot more than play discs. First, it features built-in Bluetooth®, so you'll be able to talk hands-free, place outgoing calls, and even stream music from your phone or other Bluetooth device. Then it offers a detachable 6.1" touchscreen that gives you thousands of color and display options. Last of all, JVC goes the extra mile to provide an incredible level of smartphone and app integration.
Menu options are front and center on the 6.1" touchscreen
Outstanding iPhone® app control
With your iPhone connected via JVC's KS-U30 cable, you can view and control a wide variety of apps on the KW-ADV65BT's screen. You'll get basic control over audio apps like Mog and Tunein Radio — basic functions like play/pause or track up/down. You can also view traffic info from Inrix, Cobra iRadar, and other driving apps. For powerful navigation, download the MotionX-GPS Drive app (subscription required) and you'll be able to see maps and live traffic reports on the receiver's screen. You'll still need to access your iPhone with this app, so consider adding an iPhone mount for easy use.
Pandora with iPhone and Android™
JVC makes it easy for you to take your Pandora stations on the road. Just plug in your iPhone and you'll have touchscreen control over Pandora right in your dash. Plus you'll see artist and song info on the big display. Got an Android™ device? No problem — use your Bluetooth link to listen and control Pandora.

Great for the rest of your digital music
Once you plug your iPod or iPhone into the USB input, you can tap your way through all your tunes and playlist on this JVC's responsive touchscreen. If you're not an iPod user, you can load up a USB drive or a recordable disc with music — it's easy to fit hundreds of tracks on either one, and you can still dive in using the touchscreen.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the JVC, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.
