No more scrolling words — the JVC Arsenal KD-A95BT CD receiver features a 4-line display that makes it easy to read song info no matter which source you choose. So whether you're listening to tunes on your iPod, checking out Pandora® on your iPhone, or streaming an app from your Android™ phone, you'll know what's playing at a glance. When a call comes in, it'll be easy to tell who's on the other line.
Plus, you can customize the look — choose from over 30,000 different shades for the left and right sides of the receiver. And you can rest easy knowing the receiver is covered by the Arsenal two-year warranty.
Hands-free calling is just the beginning — think of Bluetooth as a wireless bridge between your smartphone and your dash. JVC includes a tiny little Bluetooth dongle that fits nicely on one of the rear USB inputs. Pair up this JVC and an Android™ smartphone, and you can harness Bluetooth's full — you'll be able to receive text message notification, stream music, or access Internet radio stations, depending on your phone's features. iPhone® users get the same features while connected via USB.
Smart Remote for Android™ smartphones
JVC's Smart Remote Android app lets you use your compatible Android phone's touchscreen to control the action using finger swipes and gestures — for example, tap the screen to play and pause, or swipe right to skip forward a track. Install your Android phone in a mount in a convenient spot, then you'll be able to reach down and skip a track without taking your eyes off the road.
Pair two phones at once
The KD-A95BT's built-in Bluetooth lets you pair two phones at once — no need to choose between your personal and business phones. When a call comes in, the receiver will blink either blue or red, so you'll know at a glance if your call is coming from home or the office. To answer a call, just tap the volume knob.
Higher-power USB connection
JVC upped the power in their USB port, which lets you keep your smartphone charged, even when it's doing several tasks at once. And with your smartphone connected, you can listen to its internal memory as one source and access the little microSD card as another.
Control PANDORA® Internet radio
JVC makes it easy to play your favorite PANDORA Internet Radio stations. iPhone users can control PANDORA when connected to the USB slot, while Android and Blackberry owners get full control of Pandora over the Bluetooth connection, depending on your phone's features.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this JVC stereo. 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. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.
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.
