The product works great, I've paved it under a little stress test like putting it in a bag and glove compartment placing when speaking and had no complaints.

Pros: Small and efficient

Nice product. I bought it with a JVC KDR330 radio and installed it at the same time. Very Very easy installation

Pros: Answers calls and people tell me it is crystal clear.

Cons: I am not quite sure, but I don't think it the microphone activates, like with my Jabra when I am dictating a text message.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works better than most oem Bluetooth devices. No one can even tell we are talking on it, sounds great! I can even use voice calling by name with my Iphone4. Installation was a breeze. No issues so far, had it for a few weeks now.

Pros: Good echo and wind cancellation, easy install, and works great.

Cons: None so far

JVC KS BTA-100 Bluetooth

Written By Joel, Alamogordo New Mexico on Saturday, March 23, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My sole purpose for purchasing & installing this item was for it's audio streaming capabilities. Install was cake, as wires are the same color as the head unit's. Now I can tune in to Bassdrive dot com on my commute!

Pros: Easy install; can stream music from my smartphone, or internet radio; easy to use; I have not used it for calls yet, nor do I intend to: just hold the round button to ignore then rock on!

Cons: Only con I can possibly think of is that it came with double sided tape as mounting hardware, my cabin hits 130+ degrees in the summer! Gooey dash is not in my future, as I tossed the tape I secured it via alternate means.

Great product

Written By Andys, Spartanburg, SC on Thursday, December 27, 2012

I got this as a gift and installed it in about an hour. It works great with my samsung S3. Everyone needs to get this for ease of use and driving while talking on the phone. After installation the phone registration was easy no pass code required just, search and match.

Excellent add-on!

Written By Josh, St. Johnsbury. VT on Sunday, February 05, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This add-on to my JVC stereo was easy to install and works beautifully. The hands-free calling and audio over bluetooth is fantastic. I am super happy I picked one of these up.

Pros: Hand-free calling, excellent bluetooth audio quality, small

Great bluetooth module

Written By Onal, Georgia on Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just installed it in my old Jeep with the JVC receiver. Worked flawlessly! After reading so many bad things about bluetooth systems, I wasn't sure what to expect. Paired with my HTC Radar in seconds and now can receive / make calls, and also stream audio! Switching from phone to streaming to listening to the radio works simply great. Very pleased.

Pros: Streaming works. Handsfree works. Paired quickly. No issues.

Cons: Would have liked to have a dedicated "hang up" button (you have to press and hold the call button to hang up)

Simple & effective

Written By LCH, Worcester, MA on Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As close to plug and play as one can imagine. Installed in my 03 Civic with a JVC KD-HDR44. Mounting right next to the heater controls seems to let everyone hear me just fine. The location is also convenient for blue tooth audio streaming control (i.e. pause, next, previous etc.).

Pros: Simple, nearly plug and play. Good voice capture.

Cons: Wiring instructions were slightly confusing but I guessed right ...

A Bit Clunky But Works Well

Written By JohnP, New Jersey on Wednesday, December 21, 2011

I bought this JVC bluetooth adapter for use with a JVC KW-HDR720. Unit installed easily- hook up three wires and plug it in the rear aux input. Paired up easily with my Samsung Convoy and streamed music and answered calls as well as making them. Radio mutes automatically when making or taking a call. On my 2011 Xterra I placed this unit on the lower dash near the 4wd switch. The microphone picks up my voice well and the people I call say it sounds clear. I'd have placed it higher on the dash but the cord is visible and colors dont match my dash. I dont make many calls while driving but this will make it safer and easier when I do. For those who use theor phones a head unit with integrated bluetooth may be better. But I have HD radio (awesome) and bluetooth for less than what a bluetooth enabled head unit costs.

Pros: Works well, streams audio and makes and receives calls well

Cons: Lack of color choices, a bit obtrusive Sometimes plays music when you want to make a call a bit pricy for what it is

Written By Keri, Las Vegas, NV on Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was skeptical about the quality of bluetooth audio, but after I hooked this up with my JVC KD-AHD79, I was blown away with the quality. I should have believed Crutchfield's research regarding bluetooth audio, but I was skeptical because I didn't think wireless technology sound quality would even come close to a direct usb connection. Pleasantly surprised.

Pros: Bluetooth Audio

Cons: Cost

Works great!

Written By Steve, Missouri on Saturday, October 15, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this to go with my new JVC KD-AHD79 head unit to install in a 2003 Infinity G35 sedan with the bose system. It works great and sounds better than I expected! Head unit automatically pauses the sound and plays a tone to let you know a call is coming in. It works just as advertised. Only reason I knocked off a star was the price. Quite pricey for what it does.

Great accessory

Great add on. Wished they provided mounting suggestions but once you figure it out it is was easy to install. Product works very well with the stereo I bought.

It just works great

Written By Brian, San Antonio, TX on Thursday, August 18, 2011

This adapter was easy to install at the same time as my car steteo and works great. My phone syncs easily and automatically every time I get in my car.

It is also great to be able to play music from my phone wirelessly through the Bluetooth adapter. This was a great purchase for me.

Awesomwe..works great

Written By Jeff..Phoenix AZ, Phoenix, AZ on Monday, July 18, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great..was a little hesitant that it wouldn't work because on the JVC site where it shows the applicable phones the HTC Droid Incredible (Verizon) wasn't listed..But it woks great..hands free and mutes the music and rings over the car speakers when you get a call...and my friends say that they can hear me better on their phone on the hands free than on the actual phone...Thumbs UP !!!!!! Have it paired with the JVC Arsenal KDAHD79 head unit....AWESOME as well...and easy to install...

Great BT option!

Written By ericO, Austin, TX on Friday, June 10, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this BT adapter with my new JVC HDR720. Install was super easy. I was able to place this just to the right of my steering column, and it still picks up my voice perfectly even though it's sitting a bit low on the dash. Playback through the receiver is very good. Functionally, it's very easy to use, which is important so you don't have to look at it to use it. It works with my voice dialing on my phone, so I can just say who I want to call and it dials for me. Syncing has worked flawlessly. Switching from head unit to the phone,or phone to the head unit is effortless.

Overall I am very impressed by this adapter. I would buy again.

This was installed in a 2005 Saab 9-2X

Great

I highly recommend this product. It works flawlessly as a hands free phone and

Works Like a Charm

Written By Tropicalspeed, Houston, TX on Friday, April 15, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Provides full functionality for the iPod. The iPod is kept in the shirt pocket. The
phone and MP3s are all controlled via voice commands. The mp3 sound delivered
via bluetooth is very good and the audio delivered by speaker phone is typical. A
bit expensive but still worth the money. The controller comes with double-sided
tape for surface mounting. Would've been nicer if it had the capability of being
flush-mounted in the dashboard.
Oh, and the customer service provided by Crutchfield is second to none.

Written By Joe, Orange County, Ca on Friday, March 25, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good product but has wires that need to be connected to the back of the radio. I
had my radio installed before this arrived then had to pull it put again to install the
JVC KS-BTA100. But once installed works great.
