Our take on the JVC KD-X200

by Jon Paulette
JVC

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.

Join the digital revolution

If you're ready to ditch that bulky album full of scratched-up CDs and go digital, JVC's KD-X200 digital media receiver offers an impressive array of features for its price range, along with plenty of connections for all your devices.

Ready for iPods and iPhones

Plug your iPod® into the front USB port and enjoy complete control, not to mention faster charging. The KD-X200's built-in iPod controls let you access your playlists intuitively. If you're a Pandora® Internet Radio fan, you can connect your iPhone® and access basic controls like "play," "pause," "thumbs-up," and "thumbs-down" on the onscreen display. For added convenience, the 2-way control feature lets you pick your music using the receiver or the phone itself.

Android friendly

If you have a compatible Android phone, you can use your phone's touchscreen to control the action using finger swipes and gestures — for example, make an upside-down "V" to change the source. With your Android phone safely attached to a mount, you can reach down and skip a track without taking your eyes off the road. If you want to plug in a USB thumb drive and hit the road, you can put together a custom road mix using JVC Playlist Creator software on your Windows® PC. The KD-X200 will play MP3, WMA, and WAV files.

Do more with your USB connection

The powerful 1A USB port lets you keep a smartphone charged while it's performing many battery-draining tasks at once. And with your smartphone connected, you can listen to your phone's internal memory as one source and access the little microSD card as another.

Expand your system

If you're planning to build a complete car audio system sometime in the future, the KD-X200 includes rear 2.5-volt preamp outputs that you can switch over to subwoofer mode. You can also add Bluetooth® connectivity with an optional adapter. A front aux input lets you hook up other gear, like a Dock & Play satellite radio.

This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    iPod/iPhone Direct: The JVC KD-X200's front-panel USB port can acts as an iPod/iPhone high-speed direct connection when used with the dock-to-USB or Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your iPod/iPhone. Using either cable allows audio playback, music navigation, information display, and charging of select iPod/iPhone models from the JVC in-dash head unit. The head unit supports audio playback from music stored on your iPod/iPhone or music apps (such as iHeartRadio, SiriusXM, Last.fm, Rhapsody, & Slacker) streamed to your iPhone (not all music apps will be compatible).

    • DAC Bypass: The USB connection allows your iPod/iPhone's stored music or music apps to be loaded instantly to the head unit and sound quality to be maximized through the head unit's 24-bit D/A converter, allowing for a Signal to Noise ratio up to 80dB.

      • Head Unit Mode: From the head unit's front-panel controls you can search your iPod/iPhone's stored music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Podcast, Genre, and Composer. Music content for each category is listed alphabetically. The KD-X200 also supports Repeat (file/all) and Random (album/all) playback functions of your iPod/iPhone.

You can also control basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track) from select music apps streamed to your iPhone.
      • iPod Mode: You can choose to navigate your iPod or iPhone's stored music from its clickwheel or touchscreen, like you are accustomed to during normal usage. Basic playback control (such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track) can still be done through head unit for stored music and music apps.
      • External (App) Mode: External Mode allows you to solely navigate your connected iPod/iPhone device through its clickwheel or touchscreen. Playback of your iPod/iPhone's stored music and streamed music apps is supported. The head unit's iPod/iPhone controls will be locked.

    • iPod Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. This unit does not charge the iPad. If your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.

    JVC Music Control (for Android):  By connecting the JVC digital media receiver via USB to an Android smartphone (OS 2.2+) that has the free JVC Music Control app installed, it allows you to list and search all of the songs stored inside the smartphone from the receiver by artist name or album name. The JVC Smart Music Control app also analyzes all of your songs that are in your Android smartphone, and creates a playlist according to your mood. Once the application has completed the analysis of the songs, simply move the on-screen "mood ball" to your current mood, and this application will generate a list of songs that most fits your mood. Your compatible Android smartphone must be recognized as a USB mass storage class device; not compatible with MTP protocol.

    Drive Change Mode (for BlackBerry): The receiver's USB port also supports playback from BlackBerry smartphones (via USB mass storage mode). JVC's Drive Change Mode lets you connect your BlackBerry smartphone (that uses an external memory card) directly to the head unit, via USB. Drive Change Mode will let you switch between your BlackBerry smartphone's internal and external memory (such as microSD Card), so you can listen to music stored on either memory. You'll continue to be able control basic playback functions; such as folder/file search, play/pause, and skip next/previous; regardless of memory type.

    AM/FM + Pandora Radio

    RDS AM/FM Tuner: The JVC KD-X200 features a built-in RDS AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, and preset tuning. The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible AM/FM stations. You can store a total of 18 FM stations presets and 6 AM station presets (manually or automatically).  The head unit's Radio Timer features lets you tune into a preset station at a specific time regardless of the head unit's current source (you can activate the Radio Timer once, daily, or turn it completely off). If an analog FM stereo broadcast is hard to receive, you can manually switch the tuner to Mono operation. You can also switch the tuner's IF filter to Wide or Auto to increase/decrease the sensitivity.

    Note: You can set the built-in AM/FM tuner between US standard and European tuning spacing.

    Pandora Internet Radio: Pandora is the leading Internet Radio music service in the United States, giving people music they love anytime, anywhere, through personalized radio stations. The JVC KD-X200 provides complete access to your Pandora account using your iPhone, via the head unit's front-panel USB port. To access Pandora you must have an Apple iPhone (iOS5 or later) with the latest version of the Pandora App from Apple's iTunes App Store. Your iPhone will need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, or WiFi. In addition, you will need an active Pandora music service account. The JVC KD-X200 will display Artist, Album, & Song information provided by the Pandora app on your iPhone. The JVC KD-X200 will also provide control over the Pandora music service streamed to your USB-connected iPhone. 

    • Station List: You can select Pandora stations from your Station List by date or alphabetically (A-Z).
    • Create New Station: New stations can be created based on the current songs or artists playing on Pandora.
    • Skip Songs: You can skip song tracks within a station. You cannot skip back to a previous song. Pandora limits the number of skips allowed.
    • Thumbs Up/Down: You can give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down to help Pandora personalize stations to suit your preferences.
    • Bookmarking: The song or artist currently being played can be bookmarked & stored in your Pandora account.

    Note: Access to the Pandora service will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone or smartphone to connect to the Internet. Pandora is not supported in Canada and only available in the United States.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The JVC KD-X200 utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The KD-X200 is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.

    CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the KD-X200 are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs for the KD-X200 are as follows:

    • CEA2006 Specs: 20 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (200 total watts)

    Amplifier Gain Control: When you are using the KD-X200 with factory speakers (or those rated to less than 50 watts peak), the Amplifier Gain Control can limit the amount of power being sent to those speakers. When the Amp Gain Control is set to "low," the volume control ranges from 0 (minimum) to 30 (maximum). When using speakers rated higher than 50 watts peak, you can set the Amp Gain Control to "high," and the volume control will range from 0 to 50.

    2.5V/2CH Preamp Output: The KD-X200 is equipped with two 2.5V preamp outputs (Rear/SW). You can set the Rear/SW preamp outputs for connecting a pair of full-range rear speakers (through an external amplifier) or for connecting a subwoofer (through an external amplifier). When set for rear speakers, the rear outputs operate with the unit's fader control. When set for subwoofer, the outputs are non-fading.

    Subwoofer Controls: When the unit's Rear/SW preamp output is set to Subwoofer, you can set the cutoff frequency of the low-pass filter at 55Hz, 85Hz, or 120Hz. You can adjust the head unit's subwoofer level between -8 and +8 (separate from the main volume level).

    Pro EQ: The KD-X200 is equipped with JVC's Pro EQ. The integrated equalizer offers 7 preset sound modes (Flat, Natural, Dynamic, Vocal Boost, Bass Boost, & User) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The User mode allows you to manually adjust the head unit's 3-band parametric EQ (Frequency, Level, and Q-Factor).

    Pro EQ
    Frequency Level Q
    Bass 60, 80, 100, 200 Hz +/- 12 dB (-6 to +6) 1.0, 1.25, 1.5, 2.0
    Midrange 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.5 kHz +/- 12 dB (-6 to +6) 0.75, 1.0, 1.25
    Treble 10.0, 12.5, 15.0, 17.5 kHz +/- 12 dB (-6 to +6) Fixed
    Note: You can store Pro EQ bass, middle and treble tone settings for each source (Tuner, Aux, USB, iPod, Bluetooth, and Pandora).

    Bass Boost: The unit's Bass Boost enhances low bass frequencies.

    Loud (Loudness): This feature boosts low and high frequencies to produce a well-balanced sound at a low volume level. You can set this feature to High, Low, or Off.

    Volume Adjust: The input level of each source (other than FM) is adjustable relative to the FM radio volume, so there isn't a significant volume difference when changing sources. Each source is individually adjustable from -5 to +5.

    Key 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: The JVC KD-X200 features a detachable face to deter theft (no face case is provided). An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired.

    LCD: The head unit features a 11-segment, one-line LCD with adjustable brightness and dimmer settings.

    Brightness: The unit offers an adjustable display/button illumination brightness level (0-31) for day and nighttime driving.

    Display/Button Illumination Dimmer: The display/button illumination dimmer can be set to Off (normal brightness at all times), On (display/button illumination is always dimmed), or Auto (display dims when 12-volts is applied to the orange/white illumination lead).

    Mounting Angle: For proper operation, you must install the unit within 30-degrees of horizontal.

    Remote/Bluetooth Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The KD-X200 comes supplied with a wireless remote control (RM-RK52). The remote contains Attenuator, Sound, Source, Tracking, and Volume functions. The remote operates off of a single CR2025 3V Lithium-cell battery (included).

    Optional Bluetooth: The JVC KS-BTA100 Bluetooth Adapter (105KSTBA10, sold separately) provides Bluetooth hands-free communication and digital audio streaming functions for the JVC KD-X200. The JVC KS-BTA100 gives you hands-free communication from your compatible Bluetooth mobile phone and wireless streaming audio from a Bluetooth enabled digital audio player, when connected to the JVC in-dash head unit. The JVC Bluetooth Adapter includes a super-sensitive microphone, an Answer/End button, and playback controls. The JVC KD-X200 can be set to automatically mute any music audio to your vehicle's speakers so you can listen to your telephone call using your car speakers.

    Note: Not all Bluetooth devices will be compatible. Visit the JVC Mobile Entertainment Bluetooth Support Page for a complete list of compatible Bluetooth enabled devices.

    I think this media play is great. At first I was continuously docking my iphone, which works perfectly. But because I was tired of dealing with the lightning cable I bought a low profile usb drive. It's a bummer that these sort of stereos don't play AAC files. It took several nights to convert a majority of my music to mp3 but now that its done all my music lives in my truck. I like that JVC organizes the folder list in alphabetical order, it makes it very convenient for searching. Most stock stereos with a usb reader will organize folders off a usb in the order they were written, which just doesn't make any sense. In any case, this is an excellent stereo for what it cost.
    Pros:
    I like that it reads the usb stick in alphabetical order. The sound is excellent. Because it's small and light weight my console seems more tight and sturdy not having to support the weight of a cd deck.
    Cons:
    I drive several different types of cars for work and 2 other personal cars. I've always found navigating all the different car stereo menus simple and intuitive. However, this stereo takes some getting used to. Some of the menu navigation orders don't make sense, so there's a learning curve. All the features are there tho.

    It was easy to install. Pretty good sound. The biggest reason I got this was so I could plug in my moto x via USB but it only works with mass storage android devices. And I phones. So just beware of that before u get it. Although I just plugged it in with an aux and it works fine
    Pros:
    Easy to ibstall . good sound
    Cons:
    Doesn't play androids via usb

    I remain impressed with this JVC unit. A lot of capability and value for a modest price. I wasn't a fan of the factory "demo mode" as default, but once I read the instructions.... very happy with this purchase!
    Pros:
    A lot of features for a modest price
    Cons:
    Default 'factory demo mode" just get rid of it immediately, and you will be pleased!

    The harnesses to connect the radio do not work or are the wrong kind. I spent over an hour with a Crutchfield tech trying to figure out why it would not work.
    Pros:
    I am guessing, if and when the right harness is found, it might be an excellent radio.
    Cons:
    Harness limited ability to connect and operate.

    Got this to replace a family members stock stereo in a 2002 Dodge Neon. Everything sounds much better than the stock head unit, features on this unit are pretty nice. I like the additional EQ controls and subwoofer output. I did order this from Crutchfield, and the only issue i came across was that the screws required to screw this onto the mounting adapter were not included.
    Pros:
    Works great and sounds MUCH better than the stock head unit.
    Cons:
    Screws to mount were not included.. Shame on you crutchfield.

    No music through USB for Android

    Written By Peanut Butter, Ohio on Saturday, December 21, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The USB port doesn't work with Android devices with versions past Gingerbread. If you have a new Android device or are planning on upgrading, go with a Bluetooth enabled receiver, all of the features will work great and it will save you from a headache. When you plug in your device it searches for a USB Mass Storage Device. This means you won't be able to play Pandora or stream music from Youtube or google Play from your older Android. This is old technology that works great with flash drives, but not smartphones.
    Pros:
    Works great with iPhone Charges Androids
    Cons:
    Does not play music from newer android devices, JVC app is garbage

    This stereo fit the bill perfectly! Including soldering every wire separately, the install took less then 1.5 hours, the soldering took 45 mins alone to tape off every joint all perfectionist like to the factory wire harness kit I also got from Crutchfield. After soldering, the whole in car install experience was just over 1/2 hour (very much "plug and play" like) and off I went with new stereo perfectly fitted! The features of the stereo was what was described and more! Melds with my iPhone IOS7 perfectly just as I wished.
    Pros:
    Great instructions, easy install, all the features I expected, awesome deal too!
    Cons:
    None noted.

    I just wanted a head unit to use with my IPod, nothing else, it works great ! the sound quality is great since the speakers in my old klunker arent but it sounds like I put new speakers in ! Think of what it will sound like when I do put new speakers in. I do not need Bluetooth so that wasn't an issue. This is defiantly worth the money.

    Installation strait forward, not so with the Toyota maze of configurations (had a JBL system) rewired and modified by previous owners. The receiver/radio fit exactly, sounds great, more bells and whistles than I need but will grow into them.
    Pros:
    Price and ease of installation from the receiver end. Got a little more than I needed but got exactly what I asked for.
    Cons:
    No legitimate cons.

    I installed this receiver in two cars. Easy installation. The integration. Of this received was spectacular in both cases it looked like a factory radio. No fit problems at all.
    Pros:

    Cons:
    Only problem with one installation was the face frame came off after 1 week had to take dash apart and re-install. Not sure why may have been loose from factory.

    Very happy with this stereo

    Written By Crow R, Richmond, VA on Tuesday, October 22, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I got this to replace a failing factory unit and CD changer in a 2001 Corolla S. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. The JVC KD-X200 looks and feels well made. The basic black with red illuminated buttons looks like it was made for my car's interior. The display is easily visible in daylight and more than adequate for my needs. I'm still figuring out the controls, but that is to be expected. The sound is phenomenal compared to the factory unit. I wasn't expecting too much given the price, but even with the factory speakers, it's like I've gotten a whole new sound system. Depending on where your stereo will be located, you might want to consider a low-profile USB drive. I am using a SanDisk Fit which protrudes from the faceplate the same distance as the volume knob. I neither need nor desire Bluetooth connectivity, so this model is perfect for me. I think it can be added later though, so don't let that deter you. The installation was a non-issue thanks to the Crutchfield parts and instructions. There's not much else to say. I highly recommend the JVC KD-X200 to anyone looking for a great sounding, great looking, reasonably priced stereo.
    Pros:
    Great sound, looks, price etc. No more CDs! A USB drive means I have my entire music collection in the vehicle.
    Cons:
    None that I can see.

    I wasn't expecting much when I ordered this unit but I am thoroughly impressed. The faceplate feels sturdy and pressing the buttons has a solid click and feel to them. The equalizer allowed me to personalize the sound to my liking and the display works a lot better in sunlight than my last deck. I like that its low key and doesn't have flashy lighting. It looks very simple and works amazingly. There is a slight learning curve when controlling the iPod through the deck but that didn't last long. Overall I am very happy to have bought this deck.

    I like the all black, non flashy look. Owning a convertible car and worrying about thieves who cut the top first and then find out my cheap radio is not worth their time of stealing. It will be too late for the damaged top that will cost a lot more to replace than the radio. The radio meets all my requrement for the money. I may buy another one for another car.

Looking forward to another 25 years and will start with one of these for my daughter's first car.

    Great product!!! Convinient, good price, and the sound is incredible! I bought for my boyfriend as a birthday present, and he said it was the best present he has ever got! It makes his 6-hour drive to Michigan a lot better. He can listen to whatever he wants (pandora, 8tracks or his own music), and charge his phone at the same time! It's an awesome price for what it is too... :)

    These media players are great! Who uses CD's anymore? Very simple install and it has great options. The USB port and auxi input are all that is needed these days AND I LOVE IT. So simple. I also use a bluetooth adapter and it works perfectly and sounds great. I'm so happy I went with this unit. How can you beat the price! I got mine for $49 using V.me card. Great deal!
    Pros:
    Easy install. Streamlined and simple use!

    Great sound over Factory stuff

    Written By Brian P., Johnson City, Tn. on Wednesday, September 04, 2013

    Got this in today and took an hour to install while showing my Wife how to do it too. Came with the install kit for my Van. Used to bigger units due to cd motors and such so it just seemed small as a head unit. Everything went in fine. Tried out a thumb drive and it sounded so much better than the old factory radio. Even the radio function worked and sounded better. I have a droid based phone so that is a little sketchy but will try out the app and see if it connects better. It charges the phone fine though...lol. Other than that one thing... this is a great value so far just to replace the factory unit.
    Pros:
    all digital, small, lightweight
    Cons:
    maybe the droid phone stuff but not that big of a deal

    Great Stereo!

    Written By Double G, Tucson, AZ on Thursday, August 29, 2013

    Ok, I realize that this is way down at the bottom of the stereo price list but it's fantastic. You always hear that you get what you pay for, in this case that is not true. What you get is a nicely laid out stereo that includes all the basic features plus a decent equalizer. No gaudy chrome etc, it looks great in my e36 M3! Ipod/iphone control, pandora...no problem! Who has CD's anymore? They are going away like cassettes and 8 tracks before them.
    Pros:
    Simple efficient layout. Connection for amp/sub. Sounds great!
    Cons:
    Can't change display colors. Why can't they put the USB port on the back so you can hide the wire??

    I installed this in my 98 S-10. Works great with my 16gb flashdrive. Easy to navigate through music folders, organization of the music is great. How you put the music on your flash drive is how it appears in the stereo. Radio sounds great. Very impressed for the cost.
    Pros:
    Tuneability and price, looks good, sounds good.
    Cons:
    Volume knob could use some grip

    Much smaller and lighter than the stereo I took out of there. Sounds great and very simple.
    Pros:
    Very light and smaller (on the back side) than normal stereos. Shouldn't have any clearance or fitment issues. Sounds great.
    Cons:
    Cuts the music out when you change EQs for a split second. Very minor gripe.

    Great inexpensive unit. Plugged in 16gb memory stick and works flawlessly. Sound quality is very good and EQ settings are very "tweakable". Recommend to anyone looking for a media receiver.
    Pros:
    Price Sound quality Nice appearance
    Cons:
    Volume knob feels cheap

    Consider KD-X200 over KD-X250BT

    Written By VictorC, Colorado on Sunday, August 11, 2013
     
    I recently installed the JVC KD-X200 in my pickup truck. The sister model KD-X250BT is more popular, but I decided for this less expensive model as the Bluetooth comm is a wasted feature for me. I wanted to point out the key difference, and that is the red lights on the 200, as opposed to blue on the 250. The radio I replaced was a blue display, and I discovered that it hurts my night vision when driving. The red color buttons on the KD-X200 are easier on my eyes, even if they're less pretty. This radio does auto-dim with the orange/white harness wire connected to the factory headlight wire common to most vehicles, something not all radios have. Both of these radios are easy to navigate folders (up/down function), as are next/prev tracks. I use a Sandisk Cruzer Fit pen drive, which sticks out only a quarter-inch from the front panel when inserted - and isn't a protrusion easily broken when moving one's hand in front of the dashboard. I use a 16GB capacity drive loaded with WMA format music imported from Windows Media Player. The unit has no problems with this capacity, which is sheer overkill when considering navigating 200 albums encoded at 192 Kb/S. I like this radio. The white display isn't fancy, but it is easy to read. The basic two-speaker setup in my pickup truck is the simplest kind of installation there is, so I can't comment on the preamp outputs and so forth.
    Pros:
    Easy navigation Doesn't hurt night vision reliable (so far!)
    Cons:
    Wish it accepted a SD card flush with the front panel, which it doesn't

    Everything you've ever read positive about Crutchfield....it's true. Best price I could find as well as fantastic customer service. They live up to their reputation.

    The installation instructions were spot on. The radio is fine, the control menus took a little to get used to. All of the FM presets are in one group, so if you have a preset 7 or higher, then you have to scroll through the channels starting at 1 and working your way up. An "FM2" with its 6 presets would be a little easier.

    On the optional items, the wiring harness is a good idea. I had to go to another retailer after the fact and paid a little more for one. There were complaints that the in dash receiver kit for my 2000 Honda had a very tiny pocket. I didn't get it and bolted the radio in place. I removed the pocket from the stock radio and set it back in the opening under the JVC and it looks fine. It isn't fastened in place, but still holds things and looks fine.
    Pros:
    easy install with wiring harness
    Cons:
    radio presets beyond 6 are awkward to get to

    Pretty Good...

    Written By RON, Texas on Thursday, July 18, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Replaced the factory radio off a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. No premium sound package. Installation was super easy and took less than 30 min. The hardest part was putting together all the color coded wires. For the price, this unit is a steel. Great functionality with basic operation. I will mainly be using my iPhone through the USB connection. Sound quality improved slightly through stock speakers. Before I put this unit in, I always felt the speakers sounded flat. Now they're thumping along with the back window. There are plenty of audio settings to get the sound you like. I prefer a crisp, warm sound. With an adjustment of the EQ and Audio Level, I was pretty close to getting what I want. Probably can use some more tweaking. Even with the slight improvements, I still plan on replacing the speakers at a later date. A couple of tips... As you plug in your iPhone, make sure your not fiddling with the screen or the unit will be stuck on READING. You will have to reset the unit or detach/attach faceplate. Don't start swiping the screen until the music starts playing. Pandora integration is pretty cool. When listening to Pandora, everything is controlled from the unit, not the phone. If listening from your music library, you can use unit and phone for controls. Overall, very satisfied with this purchase. Tech hotline is great. Already called them twice about installation, and they were very helpful.
    Pros:
    Price. Pandora. No CD slot! Charges phone while listening to music. Detachable face.
    Cons:
    Red illumination can't be changed. Music text sometimes doesn't match to song. But it shouldn't matter when driving. There's a slight lag time from the time you press play to when the song actually starts. No biggie.

    Awesome receiver for the price

    Written By Oscar z, San Diego, CA. on Friday, July 12, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The receiver is perfect since I don't use CDs anymore. Plus it takes up way less space behind the receiver for easy install. I need speakers badly in my 95 m3 so I can't really say how we'll it sounds, but so far it's better than the relic kenwood tape player that came with the car.
    Pros:
    Very easy to use and just as capable as other receivers I've bought before
    Cons:
    Not the best looking receiver, but decent for the price.

    Minor glitches

    Written By AustinZ, Broken Bow, NE on Friday, July 12, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Overall this stereo is perfect except for some minor glitches. Sometimes pressing a button will make the stereo think there's no USB. Your music will stop. And it will read and resume playing instantly. But it gets in the way of whatever settings you were changing and you must restart the process. This may be an issue with my head unit and no one else's.
    Pros:
    Lots of settings. Nice design. Lots of sound quality.
    Cons:
    Minor glitches.

    Hands down the best value for a headunit on Crutchfield. Easy on the wallet, easy to use, easy to install... easy, easy, easy...*high fives* and *chest bumps* to JVC for making a good quality head unit that's affordable for anyone on a budget! And a *fist bump* to Chutchfield too for carrying it!
    Pros:
    Compact for easy install. Does everything I need... including play all my music from my iPhone...
    Cons:
    Doesn't have a CD player... but really, when have did you last listen to a CD anyway? If it was recently, its time to step into the new millennium. It's 2013... and CD's are so 2000 & late!

    I bought this for a work truck. I didn't want a CD player for simplicity but did want a USB port. This receiver is just right and works very well. The reason for 4 stars on 'ease of use' is only due to the fact that you need the manual to figure out some of the settings, but that is pretty typical.
    Pros:
    Inexpensive, works great, I would recommend it.
    Cons:
    none
