Does it fit my car?

Your dash is big enough for a double-DIN (4" tall) receiver — fill it with the elegant JVC KW-HDR720 CD receiver and you'll never look back. It'll put the power and clarity of HD Radio™ at your fingertips, plus give you the great sound and extra features you'd expect from a JVC receiver.

Tap into the digital power of HD Radio
Are you a lover of local radio? Then HD Radio is right up your alley. Its static-free digital signal pumps up the quality of FM to near CD-quality, and makes the AM signal sound almost as good as traditional FM. HD Radio stations can also broadcast multiple channels on the same frequency, giving you more listening options.

Great for your iPod® or iPhone®
Your whole music collection's on your iPod, so don't leave it at home. Connect it to the KW-HDR720's front USB input, and you can use the large wheel and easy-to-reach buttons to dive into your music library. You'll see plenty of song info on the easy-to-read, two-line display.

With your iPod connected and an HD Radio station tuned in, you can "tag" songs you like for purchasing later. The next time you connect your player to your computer, you'll get a reminder from the iTunes™ store. It's a great way to expand your music collection.

Killer display
JVC's Separated Variable-Color Display lets you dial in the perfect hue for your taste. You can choose from over 30,000 options, and you can even assign different colors to your controls and the display — decorate your dash in honor of your favorite team, with your school colors, or simply complement your existing lighting. If you're undecided, the receiver can cycle through all the colors continually for a really neat effect.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter 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.

iPod note:
If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver.

    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.

    I like this unit. I has a lot of features I know I will never use though.

    Pros: Color change, seems to be good quality

    Cons: Changing thing like fade, balance, bass ect. Is too complicated for me you have too many buttons to press just to change these thing. Will take some getting use to for me

    Worst electronic purchase I've ever made. Was really happy at first. Took a little while to figure out how to work everything, but no big deal. HD Radio is cool, love the capability to customize colors and USB feature. Now speaking of USB feature, right at 1 yr, USB stopped reading the iPod and iPhone. Tech support said to try a flash drive. That worked for a while, but it won't read anything now. Tech support says to reset back to factory settings....didn't work. Another issue that started just over 1 yr mark is that when I start up the truck periodically, there is no sound. Turn off and turn back on usually takes care of the problem. Well, not the case today. Started up the truck and no sound. Turned off the radio and it would not power back on, period. I figured it was shot. I eventually remembered the reset button. That brought the radio back. Haven't checked anything else yet. By the way, a reset means you loose all radio presets, color setting, everything. Guess I'll have to go back and redo it for the 3rd time in 15 months. My recommendation is to go with a different brand like Sony or Pioneer.

    Pros: HD is nice, custom color settings
