Our take on the JVC KW-NT510HDT

by Dominic Devito
JVC

Why install a car stereo with built-in GPS?

Imagine taking a trip as your car's receiver gives you directions, finds the best restaurant for dinner, and plays movies for your back seat denizens. Navigation receivers cover all the bases, with GPS guidance, DVD playback, and a host of other useful features. You can search through millions of points of interest to locate gas stations, restaurants, museums, and other interesting spots, wherever you are. Most receivers offer Bluetooth capability for hands-free calling, along with the ability to search through your iPod playlists with touchscreen controls.

JVC KW-NT510HDT Navigation receiver

Get there on time

Your navigation receiver's built for one thing — getting you to your destination. But if you're in a hurry (and who isn't?), sitting in traffic's almost as bad as being lost. JVC's KW-NT510HDT navigation receiver features rapid traffic updates and other alerts through its dedicated HD Radio™ tuner, so you'll be able to see congestion developing along your route and find a way around potential pitfalls. This handy travel companion also features Bluetooth®, HD Radio reception, and smartphone compatibility to make your drive more convenient.

More than just traffic reports

The dedicated traffic tuner lets you dial into the free Total Traffic Plus HD network — you'll enjoy access to real-time traffic info that'll help you steer clear of traffic jams. Other traffic info services only work in major metropolitan areas, but Total Traffic Plus HD works anywhere a station is broadcasting HD Radio traffic information — over 90 metro areas and counting. You'll also get sports, weather, entertainment, and news information onscreen if you want. And the new HD Radio Active Alerts feature shows you federal government alerts in text form on the navigation screen to warn you of severe weather or other emergencies in your area.

And you can stay on top of traffic while you're outside HD Radio range, too. With the help of an iPhone® app, the KW-NT510HDT will switch automatically to the Total Traffic Network over cellular signals when it senses you're out of range of an HD Radio signal.

Got a smartphone? You've got control

The KW-NT510HDT gives you varying degrees of functionality with different types of smartphones and connections. In brief:

  • iPhone with USB connection: iHeartRadio app control; Pandora® Internet radio app control; iPod control (audio only)
  • iPhone with JVC's iPod Audio/Video cable connection: all the above plus iPod video control (when parked) and audio from iPhone apps when receiver is in External Mode (these features not available for the iPhone 5)
  • Android™ with USB connection: music playback from your phone's SD card or internal memory
  • Android with Bluetooth connection: iHeartRadio app control; Pandora Internet radio app control; streaming music playback from your phone's internal memory or streaming music apps
  • BlackBerry® with USB connection: music playback from your phone's SD card or internal memory
  • BlackBerry with Bluetooth connection: Pandora Internet radio app control; streaming music playback from your phone's internal memory or streaming music apps

NaviBridge gives you easy GPS transfer from your devices

The free NaviBridge app lets you search for points of interest on your smartphone or tablet, then transfer the GPS coordinates right to the JVC KW-NT510HDT for turn-by-turn directions. If you're using an iPhone, you'll need to be connected via USB to use NaviBridge. Android users can take advantage of NaviBridge through Bluetooth.

Expert guidance

You can follow the receiver's built-in maps of the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico on its responsive 6.1" touch display, and you'll also have 8 million searchable points of interest at your disposal. Text-to-speech spoken directions announce actual road names at turns, so you'll hear "turn right on Fillmore Avenue" instead of "take the next right." Junction View shows you a realistic depiction of an upcoming exit, complete with lane guides. The Picture-In-Picture view lets you see the big picture, plus a close-up detail. And 3D Landmarks shows you skyscrapers, statues, and other familiar structures in color to help you find your way through unfamiliar urban areas.

Add important accessories with ease

If you're a satellite radio fan, the receiver's ready to add SiriusXM programming with your subscription and an optional tuner. A dedicated rear-view camera input makes it easy to add nearly any universal camera to your vehicle for safety. And if you want to send video to a backseat or overhead monitor, you'll be able to employ the RCA rear video output to keep your passengers entertained.

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 KW-NT510HDT, 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.

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

    Touchscreen Display

    6.1" Touchscreen Display: The JVC KW-NT510HDT features a fixed 6.1" wide, 16:9 touchscreen LCD monitor. The screen has a resolution of 800 (H) x 480 (V) x RGB with 1,152,000 total pixels. The touchscreen LCD serves as a video monitor, system information display and touchscreen control panel.

    Ultras-Fast Start-Up Time: The JVC KW-NT510HDT has an ultra-fast start up time of approximately 10.3 seconds from Off to the Map screen or an audio/video source screen.

    Hard-Key Controls w/ Variable Button Illumination: In addition to the head unit's touchscreen monitor, the KW-NT510HDT features a rotary-dial and push-button controls along the left edge of the screen. The hard-key controls provide Power, Source, Eject, Volume, Menu, Map, and AV functions. The JVC KW-NT510HDT allows you to adjust the unit's hard-key button illumination. It offers 7 color presets (Blue, Aqua, Green, Yellow, Pink, Red, and Purple) for the hard-key button illumination. Additionally, there are two user presets, allowing you to individually adjust the intensity of Red, Green, and Blue from 0 to 31. There is also a "Scan" setting which scans through all of the 7 available preset colors continuously.

    Off-Axis Viewing: Use the Off-Axis Viewing feature if the screen is hard to see due to the installation angle or position.

    Quick Menu: The Quick Menu is user-changeable and can be assigned a set of frequently used features for quicker, easier access. Up to 6 Quick Menu short-cuts can be assigned. The Quick Menu can be accessed from the head unit's navigation Map screen.

    AV Control Bar: The AV control bar overlays a small AV source control window on top of the head unit's map screen (at the bottom right-hand side of the screen). With this "picture-in-picture" type function, the head unit can now display the navigation and source screens (or rear-view camera) simultaneously.

    Picture Adjustments: You can adjust the contrast, color, tint, and detail level during video playback. You can also choose from four aspect modes for the in-dash display:

    • Regular: For 4:3 source material, 4:3 and 16:9 pictures display with black bars on either side (16:9 images are compressed).
    • Full: Expands 4:3 pictures horizontally to fill the entire width of the screen, distorting the picture slightly but retaining full image height.
    • Auto: The correct aspect mode is automatically chosen based on the incoming signal.

    Adjustable Dimmer: When 12 volts is applied to the illumination lead (orange/white) and the dimmer is set to Auto, the display will dim automatically when you turn on your vehicle's exterior or interior lights. The dimmer can also be set to Off (normal brightness at all times), or On (display is always dimmed). You can also manually adjust the display brightness for Day & Nighttime driving.

    Parking Brake Detection: To prevent the displaying of video while the vehicle is in motion, the light-green parking brake wire (within 22-pin harness) must be connected to your vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. While the vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view many of the other display and menu functions. When driving at a speed greater than 3 miles-per-hour, some menu screens are not available.

    Security Lock/Indicator: You may program the unit with a 4 digit security code. Once the unit has been programmed with a security code, the code must be entered to use the unit after it has been turned off. If you enable the security indicator, it flashes when the unit is turned off as an antitheft deterrent.

    2-DIN Chassis: The JVC KW-NT510HDT has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as Double DIN), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets, or Euro-mounted using the supplied mounting sleeve. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    Onboard Navigation

    Built-In Navigation (powered by NAVTEQ): The JVC KW-NT510HDT features a built-in GPS Navigation system with maps of the United States (including Hawaii and Alaska), Canada, and Puerto Rico; powered by NAVTEQ Maps. The built-in maps include over 8-million Points of Interest (POIs) such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations, attractions, parking, airports, ATMs, and more. All map data is stored on the unit's 8GB SSD (sold state drive). The unit's 3-sensor navigation system helps to pinpoint your vehicle's current location. Once a destination is set, the unit provides turn-by-turn voice & visual guidance through your vehicle's speakers and the unit's display monitor; using NAVTEQ navigation software.

    Note: Car navigation maps are frequently updated. While this database was judged to be as accurate as possible at the time of its release, a map database can never be 100% accurate. Road information that is maintained in the map databases, such as turn restrictions or road names may change over time.

    Map Updates: Map updates via a microSD/SDHC memory card can be purchased at the online NAVTEQ store.

    3-Sensor Navigation w/ Antenna: The JVC KW-NT510HDT is equipped with a high-sensitivity WAAS capable GPS receiver (SiRFstarIII), Speed Pulse wire, and Gyro sensor to calculate your vehicle's current location. The included GPS antenna features a self-adhesive base and an attached 11.5' cable terminated by a proprietary plug which connects to GPS-ANT input on the back of the head unit. The GPS antenna is designed to be mounted inside the vehicle on the dash. The GPS antenna measures 1.3125" (w) x 0.625" (h) x 1.4375" (d).

    On-Screen Map: As you travel, the KW-NT510HDT guides you to your destination with voice prompts, arrows on the map, and on-screen directions. At the bottom of the screen is your current street, while the top of the screen shows your next street; the upper-left corner indicates the distance to your next maneuver. Your route is marked with a light-blue line, while your vehicle is marked by a red arrow (or car) on the screen, and checkered flag marks your destination. A magnified view of the map is displayed when approaching your next turn. When you reach an area approximately within 90' around the destination/via point, the navigation system considers you to have reached your destination/via point. You can adjust the following map settings.

    • 2D/3D Maps: You can changes the perspective of the map from 2D North-Up (displays the map in 2 dimensions with North at the top), 2D Heading-Up (displays the map in 2 dimensions with your direction of travel at the top of the screen), 3D Map (displays the map in 3 dimensions with your direction of travel at the top of screen).
    • Map Views: You can zoom in and out of the map screen, as well as scroll the map screen left/right or up/down. You can also rotate a 3D map screen 360-degrees.
    • Night Map Mode: Night Map Mode dims the map display when driving at night. You can turn this feature On/Off or set to Auto so the map display dims when you turn on your vehicle's headlights (the unit's illumination control lead connect is required for Auto mode).
    Note: The AV control bar overlays a small AV source control window on top of the head unit's map screen (at the bottom right-hand side of the screen). With this "picture-in-picture" type function, the head unit can now display the navigation and source screens (or rear-view camera) simultaneously.

    3D Landmarks: The KW-NT510HDT 's navigation map features three-dimensional buildings to provide you with a better perspective of your surroundings. With 3D Landmarks, you can see representations of prominent buildings in many cities.

    Voice Guidance (with Text-to Speech): When you approach a turn, the KW-NT510HDT guides you with voice guidance (Text-to-Speech) through your vehicle's front speakers and visual indications on the KW-NT510HDT's screen. The unit offers 3 voice guidance languages including English, Spanish and French; with adjustable volume (0-20). You can continue to listen to your music source while navigating. The KW-NT510HDT will mute or attenuate the music source, when there is a text-to-speech voice prompt. Once the voice prompt has ended, your music volume will automatically raise to previous setting.

    Lane Assist w/ Junction View: The Lane Assist function guides you to the appropriate lane you should be in for upcoming junctions and interchanges, while Junction View displays a realistic view of upcoming road details facilitating a safer navigation experience.

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. The internal amp can also be turned off when all the speakers are powered by outboard amplifiers.

    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.

    JVC KW-NT510HDT

    Written By Roy, Rockville, MD on Monday, August 18, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Overall performs well. I prefer the Garmin GPS. it is move polished and gives you adequate changes in direction and does not leave you guessing. The safety lockout feature is a nuance if the copilot has to change location the GPS becomes disabled.
    Pros:
    It informs you of photo enforce areas. Most of the time auto route correction for traffic works but sometimes you go around in circles.
    Cons:
    Hard to see from driver's seat. GPS requires that you look on the screen to obtain sufficient information. Most of the time the final destination is not properly indicated you only know that you are in the vinicity. In bright sunlight there is a glare and you cannot see the screen. Cannot set home location. At times there is an indication of a route change when there is none. When exit occurs immediately after a route change, you are sent from the left to right exit. Insuffient verbal in city.

    This JVC KW-NT510HDT system

    Written By Joe, Willcox, AZ on Saturday, March 15, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I am giving this product five stars as my son and I were very impressed with how easy this navigation system, was to install and how it does more than what i was expecting it to do for the price i paid for it... My son and I installed this system in my 2005 ford f150fx4 and was relatively easy to install. i purchased the Accele RVCLPMB back up camera and my son who has a factory back up camera in his 2014 explorer was as impressed with this camera as i was. all in all the JVC KW-NT510HDT navigation system, the Metra 95-5812 In-dash Receiver Kit , Receiver Wire Harness, all made the installation easy and with very little problems. We are looking forward to our trip to Montana in May and see how well the navigation works!
    Pros:
    easy installation, great system, back up camera very clear easily installed too. I've only had it for a couple of weeks, we'll see in a month if im still as happy as i am now...
    Cons:
    none

    GPS

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    It is O K when compared to factory systems. GREAT compared to tom tom. The GPS has me lost every time I try to get to a location in Pittsburgh.. The sound system is not great, but has inputs and outputs that could be used to connect to more amps. Not great base. Considering a sub woofer. I hate to spend any more money on a system that already costs plenty
    Pros:
    Not real hard to install, could have better info as to where to connect a few of the inputs required.
    Cons:
    not great sound without external amps. Sub needed, price

    Tough To Beat

    Written By GL, San Diego, CA on Thursday, January 02, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I recently upgraded our single DIN Kenwood head unit (6 years old) with this one. I did the install myself and it went smoothly. It took me approximately four hours and the toughest/most time consuming parts were running the wire for the SiriusXM antenna and cleaning up all the wiring. I did use an aftermarket bypass for the parking break so my passenger (wife) could work the navigation while we are moving. Although it is subjective (and possibly wishful thinking) this stereo sounds better to me. It is running Kicker component speakers up front and I do not have an aftermarket amplifier. I did not bother hooking up the reverse wire (no backup camera) or the VSS wire (too much of a pain) and I've not noticed any problems with not doing this. All the functionality works great and it is so nice to have all the additional information from Sirius and the HD radio displayed on the screen. I highly recommend reading the owner's manual start to finish as most of the complaints in prior reviews could be addressed. I did notice that some of the Sirius functionality that is part of the tuner is not included such as pausing and recording stations. It comes preloaded with a 2012 version of Navteq, many other units allow you to download the latest map update. I love being able to use a 32GB MicroSD to load up all my music and have it permanently in the unit. For the price of this unit, I cannot imagine anything better.
    Pros:
    Startup Speed and no Touchscreen Delays, Appearance, Easy Interface, Great Sound Quality, Amazing Features for the Price, MicroSD for Music Storage
    Cons:
    Missing Sirius Features, Poor Android Pandora, Not Current Navigation

    Good Head unit, nav took a little time to get used to after all Garmin units prior seems to do as intended.
    Pros:
    looks nearly stock in the dash

    Very affordable GPS head unit

    Written By Bob, Dallas Texas on Wednesday, January 01, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Crutchfield supplied the needed wiring harness to connect this to my existing wiring in my 1999 Land Cruiser. Installation took about 2 hours.

    GPS is as fast and as accurate as my Garmin. The voice navigation prompts are way too loud even with it set to volume 1. I had to look in the book to turn down the voice prompts as the volume dial does not work for those. Most times I just turn off the voice. I can view the map and see the name and artist of the song that is playing.

    The HD radio is great but i find that 24 FM preset buttons is not enough. Dallas has lots of FM HD channels.

    I had to upgrade the firmware to get iHeart radio to work but the upgrade was easy with the sd card reader on the front. I also use Pandora and both services will show artwork, artist and song title. I also use XBox music on my Android phone and it plays well with the bluetooth option. Sometimes the bluetooth setting will display artist and title and some times it won't .

    The DVD will play fine on the screen when I am motionless. When I am moving the DVD still plays on the backseat headrests and the audio continues. I wish it would mute the main cabin speakers and send sound to wireless headphones but it does not have a separate output for rear seat audio, only video.
    Pros:
    Value priced GPS head unit. HD radio built-in. DVD player. Front SD card slot USB port supports up to a four port USB multiplier. This allows 4 USB memory sticks to be connected simultaneously.
    Cons:
    GPS voice prompt too loud. GPS voice prompt reminds you 3 times before you get to the corner that you need to turn. A little overkill. Road noise volume compensation doesn't seem to work. Sound equalizer doesn't work for iHeart radio. iHeart Radio and Pandora don't always connect properly. Sometimes restarting the app is required.

    Probably one of the best decks on the market and at a great price. It dramatically increases the quality from my factory speakers and has a ton of customizations and a great equalizer. This deck also has pretty much every feature you could ask for.
    Pros:
    Lots of features and great quality.
    Cons:
    No major cons of this product.

    Great Unit

    Written By briangriffin56, Keller, TX on Saturday, December 28, 2013
     
    This deck was the max that I was going to spend on a deck. My wife got a new Ford with the SYNC in it and I really like this unit better. It does everything that I want it to do. I have put in about 200 decks in my life starting with 8 Tracks but I was a little nervous about anything other than a "music" unit. Crutchfield was there for me and now I have a unit that I absolutely love. Navigation is "spot on" Music is great. DVD looks and sounds like "home theatre"
    Pros:
    Navigation, Sound, App ability
    Cons:
    None

    Very attractive unit. I purchased this for my wife's Lexus RX. She wanted an in-dash navigation system, satellite radio, blue tooth, and a rear camera. I tried to find one that wasn't too complicated, she's not "tech savvy". This one fit the bill. Installation was pretty simple on the equipment side. A bit tricky finding the speed and reverse signals on the car side. All in, about six hours for the complete install.

    She's only been using it a short time but so far, it works very well. Navigation is easy to understand, the sound quality from the satellite radio is awesome, and the unit is fairly easy to operate once you customize it a bit.

    As usual, Crutchfield's service and tech support we're spot on!!
    Pros:
    Fairly easy to use Good blue tooth sound quality Great stereo sound
    Cons:

    Written By Peter M, Detroit, MI on Sunday, December 22, 2013
     
    Excellent unit for the price as there are no surprise extras, you get all the features and ports you could want in the base price. The unit has HD Radio, which also provides the traffic information which already saved us on a trip to the airport from missing a flight. The BlueTooth works great. The ability to have both an external USB connection for a thumb drive loaded with music and a SD card front mounted loaded with videos makes a an excellent solution. Sound quality can be tuned to each car/speaker, a lot of flexability in tweaking it.
    Pros:
    Price and ports. The dual screen display allows you to watch a video in the lower right hand corner while negativing in the remainder of the screen.
    Cons:
    A little slow sometimes getting the initial GPS fix location but locks on good after that. Saving a favorite location took a bit of practice to do. Still looking for an application that can use Google maps to BlueTooth a destination. The one in the manual just does not seem to work, maybe in Europe but not in U.S. Like to use apps like NearMe or Google Maps and save that search as a destination.

    Great Unit, but.....

    Written By Matt, Pennsauken, NJ on Friday, December 20, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Great head unit and I like it! However, I couldn't get the steering wheel controls to work. I spoke to 3 different Crutchfield people and they game me 3 different ways to wire it, none worked. They told me to call the manufacturer of the steering wheel control, they were NO help. I asked Crutchfield to pay for me to take it to a "professional", they wouldn't. A little background. I have been an electrician for over 25 years and have installed a number of head units from Crutchfield. They always were great when I had any questions. This time not so much. I finally took the dashboard apart for the third time and took it to a local installer. He said that the programming they told me was wrong. Luckily he only charged me $45.
    Pros:
    Great unit. GPS works well
    Cons:
    For the first time I was disappointed in Crutchfield's techs.

    Love it, but HATE the Speed Limit Notifications

    Written By Steph, Birmingham, AL on Friday, December 20, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I love almost everything about this device. I had it installed in a 2003 Ford Explorer. I was going to install it, but after removing the stock cd player, and looking at the old connections versus the new connections, reading the instructions and realizing I would need to get crimp caps or solder so I had it installed. I felt it was $$ well spent after it took them more than 10 hours. The display is clear and easy to see. It's a little busy at first,(as is the manual) when you are trying to learn everything, but with use it gets easier. The hands free speaker is crystal clear for whoever I'm talking to and for me. The Bluetooth connects automatically with my Android as soon as I turn on my SUV. I also got a back up camera as well and the display is very clear. Everything sounds great.....the cd player, HD radio, my phone and my ipod. DVDs also look great. I wish I had gotten this much sooner it would have saved a lot of angst over whether I should by a new car or not. Nothing wrong with this one I just wanted a little more technology. Now if only I could close the back with the push of a button. The GPS is acceptable. I like my old standalone Garmin better but that could be because I'm used to it and it had lifetime maps which I updated. I haven't checked on updating the maps on this yet. Overall it is really fun to use, especially when you upgrade from a 2003 stock radio, CD, and never used cassette player.
    Pros:
    Every component sounds good. The display is clear and easy to read. It also looks really good in my SUV.
    Cons:
    The GPS constantly says "please observe the speed limit." I was on a highway where the speed limit was increased from 65 to 70 over 18 months ago. It was very annoying. I'm sure this is something I can fix.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I find it hard to give anything a 5-star review unless it's spectacular, so this is a strong 4+. I wanted to swap out my stock radio head unit in my 2011 Prius for something with simple Bluetooth and decent navigation. I had an add-on Bluetooth system via the aux in with the stock radio, but was a pain since you had to have the source on that to use/hear it. So, the ability to listen to anything, radio, Pandora, CD, etc. with phone interruptions easily answered. It works great for that. The Navigation is good, not smartphone good though. The HD traffic only seems to work with major highways, and has an annoying flashing on and off. I still prefer Google maps on my phone to plan my escape to and from work. I can't trust the JVC to be better than me. I am using this with a Nokia Lumia 920, and the the Bluetooth audio works fine, Pandora launches from the phone, but not the icon with on the JVC, which is fine, but seems like it could be easily remapped to launch for Windows phone (I think iPhone and Android are supposed to.) Sound is good, I really like having HD radio in the car, the HD2 and HD3 channels often have some good extra content.
    Pros:
    Phone connects quickly. Navigation is decent, searching is pretty good, certainly better than OEM systems. Works well enough with Windows Phone 8 No crashes yet.
    Cons:
    Blinking traffic data is really annoying, and borderline dangerous. (That's my only con now.)

    Install was fast and easy with kit that Crutchfield ships with the unit. Love the features in the unit. When Ipod is connected can scroll thru artist, albums, etc and select on screen. If you have album art it is displayed also. Nice feature when using the back up camera, volume is reduced when you put it in reverse for less distractions. Bought the kit to use steering controls and they work great! Selected this unit because of the lane preview in the navigation.
    Pros:
    Easy install with XM unit and back up camera.
    Cons:
    Too early to have any cons. As of yet I have not found any.

    REPLACEMENT UPGRADED JVC SYSTEM

    Written By Anonymous, Aumsville, Oregon on Wednesday, December 18, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is a fantastic device. I was given a price by my local GMC dealer to install a replacement factory replacement for my GPS/multimedia player, which had failed. The price quoted was 3X what this unit cost (even including paying a local installer to install it). It is working flawlessly - PLUS - I got the added capability of a DVD player. The device completely interfaced with my BOSE Speakers. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!
    Pros:
    Capabilities; quality of sound
    Cons:
    Difficult to get on to the use of it at first. User manual is very complex; JVC needs to include a cheat sheet with basic use commands.

    great radio easy install

    Written By Anonymous, Arizona on Wednesday, December 18, 2013
     
    This was an easy install and it has a great sound. There were a couple things I thought the unit was capable Of doing but later informed that it doesn't. I thought I was able to have a slide show of photos for background, but doesn't do that. Also I love my xm radio and my old unit was able to save favorite songs that I selected. This unit doesn't do that. Also the background it's pretty simple. Not bad. The GPS is also pretty nice, has a lot of different viewing options DVD plays flawlessly and I love the iheart and Pandora app. Had some issues when first install but I just needed to update the unit and fixed it. . I like all the little extras. If your not looking for that then would be great for you.
    Pros:
    Easy install. Easy to use. Íheart and Pandora radio.
    Cons:
    doesn't do slide show, doesn't save your favorite song on xm. Can change background.

    Very good product. I was able to buy this on sale so feel that I got a very good deal for a great radio. The install was more difficult than advertised, I had to remove 2 dash bolts in my 02 F250 in order for the new radio to fit.

    Great navigation, and sound package. But needs improvement.

    Written By Gustavo S, Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Wednesday, December 11, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is an excellent upgrade to the factory stereo in a 2008 Toyota Prius. The large touch screen is excellent for overall use, especially the navigation. Added Bluetooth, GPS, USB iPod control, and HD Radio to my vehicle at a reasonable price. there are also various modes of sound enhancement including an equalizer. However, the GPS department needs refinement, it takes a while to getting used to it's interface. The Metra install kit is made of rather cheap, flexible plastics. The trim panel is cheaply made, and does not offer the same structural support to the air conditioning vents as the OEM radio did. Crutchfield did not provide paperwork, internet links, or pictures to installing the speed, reverse, and parking brake wires of this unit. But, they did instruct over phone, e-mail, and text where to find speed, and parking brake wires. The reverse wire was left disconnected since they do not know where it is in the vehicle.
    Pros:
    Great value for the price, unit is quality built. If your vehicle does not have GPS, bluetooth, HD radio, USB iPod control, or you want it all in one unit, this JVC navigation stereo is an excellent choice.
    Cons:
    This may not apply to your particular vehicle, but in mine you lose the sound beeps when interfacing with the Prius multi function display. Steering wheel radio control buttons are also lost, but can be restored with a pricy adaptor. Was able to use the Prius original mount bracket, made to a much higher quality than the Metra. I'd give this product 5 stars if Crutchfield could find a better trim panel that provides same structural support to A/C panels as OEM radio. GPS needs better GUI.

    We bought this system because the radio in my Tahoe ate a CD and wouldn't give it back. Just a sign of the age of all the electronics. This system seemed to have all the features we wanted, with the best reviews and the best price (got in on the big sale). So far, I love it! The Bluetooth was super easy to connect to my phone, the hook up was relatively easy, the Nav system seems to be accurate and is fairly easy to use. The screen is very clear and every thing updates quickly, no waiting for seconds once you touch your selection. I haven't even read the manual so far, have figured most things out just by playing with it. For those who wondered about the touch screen speed controls, just ground that wire when you hook it up if you don't want it. You won't even need the cable (which I bought and didn't use). Overall I love it and as soon as I can save up the money, I will be getting one for my husband.
    Pros:
    While high in price, it's a very good deal when you consider all the components you get in one.
    Cons:
    Not sure how to update the Nav system maps; the Nav search space button doesn't seem to be working. (I reiterate that I have not read the manual yet and these things may be explained there.)

    Awesome staff at Crutchfield! Great unit.
    Pros:
    Tons of options and capabilities.
    Cons:
    You can do more on a windshield mounted gps than on unit. The so called safety features causes more of a hazard. You have to be stopped to use anything useful or informative. If you are tired and want to find the nearest hotel or motel than you have to pull over. That is not something I want to do on a busy roadway. You could apply this to about everything.

    I just installed in an 07 saturn sky redline with the factory monsoon system. Having problems getting my aftermarket backup cam to work. Been on the phone with support about five times and they're very knowledgable and friendly. We think i may have gotten a bad axxess gmos lan 04 so they're shipping a replacement tomorrow. It wont detect when the car goes into reverse, therefore won't switch over to the camera. I just noticed that this radio is no longer available from crutchfield(discontinued)..... Disappointing. Best radio on the market for the sale price!!!!!!!!! You can still find it elsewhere. Grab it while you still can!!!
    Pros:
    Everything!
    Cons:
    Absolutely none

    Very Solid product - Packed with features

    Written By Jay, Richmond, VA on Friday, December 06, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Great deal for so many features and versatility. Installation was easy, I needed Crutchfield assistance with finding my car's light control switch wire, and of course they were very friendly & helpful. My car does not have a speed sensor wire so I did lose some features associated with that, but the navigation is still spot on. Music sounds great, love the HD stations.
    Pros:
    Tons of features, touch screen, blue tooth works well.
    Cons:
    You cannot voice dial with this unit. In absence of a speed sensor wire, I wish the GPS could calculate my speed like my portable GPS does.

    Great product

    Written By AndrewW, Mesa, AZ on Wednesday, December 04, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Excellent product, easy install, great sound, I use the HD Radio, Pandora, and iPhone music the most, haven't tried the DVD, don't really need that feature, plan on putting my music on an SD Card I can leave in there for times I don't want to hookup my phone. Bluetooth to phone audio and interface is exceptional, people on the phone report that it sounds better than when I'm using the handset! My only "hmmm, could be better" is in the navigation voice prompts, it says, "Destination Ahead" but doesn't give you right or left, this can catch you off guard on 3 lane roads, etc... so best to know beforehand if it's North/South or East West when you get there. Also it gives too many prompts leading up to an intersection, "In a half mile, turn right" "In 500 feet, Turn Right on North xyz Road" "Turn Right on North xyz Road" then exactly at the street "ding-ding" I'd give up the 500 foot notice in exchange for "on right" or "on left" at the destination! Other than that, i can't fault it, well worth the money, boots quick, sounds great, does everything I want.
    Pros:
    Sound quality, easy install, boots fast, great user interface, pandora, iphone (i have a 5S) works great, lots of features, "Please observe the speed limit" voice prompt if desired (you can set how fast over before this sounds)
    Cons:
    Doesn't give "on right" or "on left" when arriving at destination.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Product is great! Has all the functionality to cover Androids and iPhones. Love the onscreen traffic feedback from the RDS/GPS. Just that alone saved me a couple of hours of traffic driving into L.A. Install was a breeze.
    Pros:
    Full control of key functions for phone/bluetooth/USB/SDmicro/DVD. USB video playback is very clean. Let's you store up to 32GB of data to keep everyone entertained. GPS is very accurate. Traffic reports via RDS is free and there are options to update map as needed.
    Cons:
    Installed into a 2009 VW Jetta, lost radio menu on steering wheel control. Could be a FW update?

    Awesome Head Unit

    Written By maccve, Jefferson City, MO on Tuesday, December 03, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I installed this unit in a 2013 FJ Cruiser and love it so far! I previously owned a Ford F-150 Lariat with the premium sound system and navigation built in and was missing that function, plus the Toyota factory system sounded like I was in a plastic garbage can... Anyway, I installed this system and it sounds great with my upgraded speakers! It works flawlessly with the SiriusXM adapter, the steering wheel control adapter and I hard wired in the rear view mirror back-up camera. The Sirius XM and bluetooth interface work really good for me! I found a subwoofer for a good deal that I am going to install under my seat...that should make the sound even better and the unit is set up with subwoofer outputs.
    Pros:
    Interface with my iPhone, sounds great (lots of audio adjustments), fast boot up time. Looks like it was factory installed with the adapters Crutchfield sent with the system!
    Cons:
    Navigation seems to do too many "make a slight left ahead" call outs when it is just a curve in the road....may be a setting I can adjust... Also, I wish I could put lines on the back up camera image which helps with aligning the vehicle (tend to still use my rear view mirror for that).

    This is a great unit it has everything you need to have total control of all of your audio and video needs in your automobile. I installed it in a 2010 Honda Accord and it really works great! It makes your dash come alive with all of the colorful lights.
    Pros:
    HD Radio built in , Pandora available, and a variety of sound shaping tool.
    Cons:
    navigation system a little time consumming to program.

    Love this head unit! Was looking at a double DIN for quite a while. Finally got a deal that I couldn't pass up. Crutchfield's price was too good to pass up and I am glad that I didn't. Lots of features! All the bells and whistles! Really been fun learning how this works and taking advantage of all the options. I wish I had done it sooner.
    Pros:
    Price, many features, everything works as advertised. Best unit I have ever owned.
    Cons:
    None at all!

    WOW...everyone at Crutchfield was patient and helpful with all my concerns. Support was professional and clear about addressing my questions. Every aspect of this installation went smoothly. I surprised myself with completing the process without a problem. The unit itself is beyond my high expectations. It's ease of use is without comparison. The quality of sound is a notable enhancement over the previous unit. I believe this GPS/Receiver will increase the value of my vehicle. I know it will provide long term entertainment for me and my passengers. TOP NOTCH!
    Pros:
    I have mechanical skills and proved it with this installation because the process was really a no brainer.
    Cons:
    If they exist, I do not have the slightest idea what they could be, at least for myself.

    I been through 3 radios so far. the first one was the JENSEN VM9424BT, used. which it was very nice, not to Wi-Fi friendly with phone apps, but it was simple and it did what it had to do, but I end up selling it to my uncle, my second radio was the Clarion NX602 for almost $500 dollars from an online store. I thought it was going to be a good radio, but men was I wrong !!! the Clarion radio had some really good features that were cool, but they didn't work right, it keep killing my IPod, the volume bar would stay on the G.P.S. and I couldn't see the menu bar on the bottom, the output for the headrest monitor didn't work at all, the G.P.S. would keep repeating that I had arrived at my destination over and over, so I return it, and am still waiting for my refund money !!!! I was ready to give up until I found the JVC KWNT510HDT on Crutchfield, for almost $200 dollars less than other online stores, I tried to do the price match with them, but they say no !!!!
    Pros:
    features work, the G.P.S. is so clear and accurate with the traffic, the sound is so HD quality, the HD radio is already build in, not like the others that say HD radio ready, so you dohae to buy extra stuff to get it going, it works really good with my Android phone, I can listen to Pandora get the artist and song info on the radio screen, select thumbs up or thumbs down, the output for the headrest works really good, the Bluetooth connects really fast. and the calls are crystal clear.
    Cons:
    Nothing yet

    Almost Perfect

    I bought the older (500HDT) model a year and a half ago. It has been an excellent unit for travel. Packed with features and great sound staging. The new model seems to load faster and is more responsive to the screen controls. My only complaint is that in a world going more and more to blu ray, that they didn't make the leap with the 510HDT. Maybe the next one will.
    Pros:
    Built in blue tooth. Fast CPU. Great design.
    Cons:
    Still no blu ray.
