JVC KW-R900BT

Big face, awesome display
You won't lack for song info with JVC's KW-R900BT CD receiver. It fills your double-DIN (4" tall) dash opening opening, giving you an easy-to-read 4-line display, ultra-big buttons, and a control knob that's really easy to grab. You can set different colors for the display and controls — with 30,000 hues on tap, you'll definitely find a scheme that looks good in your dash.

Hands-free calling & music streaming
Of course, Bluetooth lets you talk hands-free in the car, but now you can pair up your iPhone, Android™ smartphone, or Blackberry™ to get some sweet functionality. For example, you'll be able to receive text message notification, stream music, or access Internet radio stations, depending on your phone's features. JVC's Android app also lets you control some receiver functions using swipes and gestures.

There's no need to choose between pairing 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. To call out, you can bring up the QWERTY keyboard on the screen, then type in the name of the person you want to contact, and the receiver will find it in your phonebook.

Great for iPod®, plus control Pandora®
Once you plug your iPod or iPhone® into the convenient front-panel USB input, you can use the KW-R900BT's oversized knob and buttons to navigate your music library. And with your iPhone connected, you can play your Pandora® Internet Radio stations from your dash, and even skip and rate songs like you do online.

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.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (see "Accessories") 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.

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.

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 or its optional iPod adapter.

    I was looking for a stereo with good blue tooth capability as I drive a lot and would use the blue tooth 3-4 days a week. I bought the JVC KW-R900BT and it worked good for the first couple of months then stopped syncing automatically. I have had the stereo for about 2 years and would not buy it again. I have to re-sync 7 out of 10 times to my iphone. I did the same with the iphone 4s and now with my iphone 6.

    Pros: Looks close to stock and fills the space nicely. Has nice outputs and a front facing USB port to charge my iphone.

    Cons: the Bluetooth stinks and is unreliable. Do not buy this receiver unless you want a blue tooth receiver where the blue tooth only works part time.

    Honestly, this is a decent upgrade to the JBL Synthesis radio in my 4Runner. Of that, I'm not denying. That being said, the build quality of the h/u is so, so. It feels cheap, the display is very blocky, the plastic on the face scratches *very* easily. The Android compatibility is barely existent. The sound that's produced from the radio is not shabby. Bluetooth call quality is horrendous-- even after trying all troubleshooting the receiving end of the call echoes and can rarely hear you. I have used the CD player source maybe three times and now have to send the hardware in to be repaired-- the h/u will not eject my disc. I do not feel that you get much bang for the buck.

    Pros: Fits well in the dash, radio sound quality, connections for about everything you need

    Cons: Lack of a decent display, build quality, Android compatibility is scant, Bluetooth call quality is horrendous.

    This thing is very cheap. The only way to listen to Pandora is through the head unit. At least you can sort alphabetically before scrolling. The wheel is really slow to react and the menu is horrible. EQ and any other setting is buried and hard to get to. The head unit has 3 "display" modes, but it only changes the size of the words "auxillary mode" or whatever it says. It will not display song or artist. The clock also will not change when you have an iPhone or iPod plugged in. It will just display the time when you plugged it in and then quit updating. You can skip songs while using Pandora from the headset but have no control from your phone. When you are using Spotify or music from the phone, none of the buttons on the head unit work and you can only control from the phone. Seriously? Sound quality is ok, I still get sound out of the speakers. The rest is pretty bad, I thought it would grow on me and I would get used to it, but it functions so poorly I just can't live with it. I'll be returning this thing ASAP.

    Pros: It sends sound through my speakers.

    Cons: Everything else about it.

    I ordered a fancy touchscreen a few months back for Carplay support, pulling out this guy's older brother the 810, which had served me well for 2 years. That was a mistake. The touchscreen was buggy, didn't support the phone properly, etc. Thanks to Crutchfield's excellent customer service, I exchanged it for this guy.

    This thing is simple, stable. Screen color is heavily customizable with either a RGB picker menu or one of about 30 presets for various colors, for both screen and buttons independently. The video reviews I've seen before complain about the source button being too bright; if you turn the night brightness down all the way for the buttons, it's tolerable - (on its scale of 1-20, I'd like it to go maybe 2 "more dim", but it isn't blinding). Sounds good, if not a tad too loud at medium volume. Easy to read screen. It just works.

    Bluetooth has never failed to pick up immediately since I first put it in. Although it is clearly stated once you dig, the "2 USB" is misleading since one is used by a dongle. However, it adds flexibility. With the similar 810 setup, I had the bluetooth in front and ipod in glove box... I could just yank the bt dongle to use second usb as needed. this time around dongle is in back, and I've just been using BT to connect.

    Pros: Heavily customizable color/brightness scheme. In MY setup with the wiring bracket, recognizes lights on for night mode (but not dimmer dial) Displays RDS traffic info Title/track info relayed through bluetooth for iPhone (music), Spotify, probably Pandora. Most stable bluetooth I've had (using iPhone 6)

    Cons: RDS Traffic info one word at a time. Title Scrolling is page up style instead of left to right - odd. With the Access steering wheel controllers, you get next/prev from steering wheel, but not seek when you hold. (Might be limitation of all steering wheel controls, I dunno) Source button just a tad too bright. Wish it had HD radio, but will survive.

    Great upgrade from my car's stock radio. Car stereos are somehow stuck in a pre-iPod, pre-iPhone user interface of extreme crappiness. This unit is no worse but also no better than all the rest.

    Pros: Color matching lighting. 2 USBs. (Though you have to use one for the Bluetooth.) iPod control. Bluetooth has worked perfectly, in my limited trials of it.

    Cons: I thought it had 2 USB ports + Bluetooth. If you want bluetooth, you have to use up one of the USB ports. Has a large display that it does not use well. I can barely see the name song that's playing on the radio or on the iPod because the screen, though big, is actually super-low resolution and poorly thought out. Radio interface is awkward. Trying to get to presets above 6 is hard. (This is a good example of

    I wanted to upgrade the factory radio in my 2005 4Runner so that I had Bluetooth capability for work. The Bluetooth works great and is easy to use. Receiver seems to be of high quality in terms of build, was relatively to install, and sounds good. I didn't give 5 stars on sound quality only because I don't think it was a huge upgrade over the factory model. However, functionality is much better and the ability to program the display colors makes it fit right into the existing dash as though it is stock. Crutchfield is awesome for finding the right unit that will fit the application. Installation was easy- didn't have any issues at all. Highly recommend.

    Pros: Bluetooth functionality, ease of use, simplicity in its design, pretty good sound quality, DSP works great, able to use existing onboard JBL amp and stock JBL sub and speakers (required an adapter to do but purchased with the receiver).

    Cons: none really- I didn't order the steering wheel adapter thinking I could live without the added expense but find myself now wishing I had installed it. Will order and install in near future. Maybe I am old school, but I sure do wish that you could find radio stations by rotating the dial instead of only having the seek mode. Minor gripe though.

    Great sounding, solid performance for the price. A double din radio that uses well laid out physical buttons instead of touch screen that would require taking eyes off the road and a steady finger to use. Great sound, easy to adjust display, nice high level amp outs (6 total) and an impressive DSP function that actually improves the sound in my little eclipse.

    Pros: Great sound, fantastic control lay out, very adjustable cosmetics, fantastic Bluetooth processor.

    Cons: Slow to connect to phone, menu is the same button as pause, source is the same button as power, the android software is awful.

    This is a very customizable stereo. From the colors on the screen, down to the audio settings, there is plenty to fix it how you want it.

    Sound is exceptional and the 5v preamp outs are very helpful in getting the sound across perfectly to the amps.

    Pros: 5v preamp outs, color customization, Bluetooth works great, sound settings are about as much as I need

    Cons: Scrolling through the sources can be a bit annoying, but not a deal breaker

    Pros: Sounds great much better than stock radio.

    I bought this to replace an older JVC that had stopped working and was looking for a unit that I could install using existing wiring. It was recommended by advisor Marshall and is perfect. I could have bought the XR910 for much less but this was the only unit he referred me too. I'm not sure I wouldn't have been just as happy with the less expensive unit but this does have more features. I installed it myself in just over an hour and the majority of that time was spent trying to get the wiring in back out of the way so I could get the mounting screws in. All of the connections were identical to my old receiver so the connections took about 15 seconds. It sounds awesome running through a Kenwood amp even though my rear speakers are factory I can even use the remote from the old one so I have a backup.. I have yet to try out the bluetooth, Pandora, or even the CD player as 95% of the time I have a flash drive plugged into the USB port with most of my favorite tunes playing. I just hope it lasts much longer than the previous unit did.

    Pros: Great sound and many options for music sources. Controls are easy to use.

    Cons: Volume knob is very smooth and you kind of have to pinch hard to get it to turn and a couple of times it has paused because it pushed in while I was only trying to turn it. I hope I can get used to it.

    Installed this in 05 dodge magnum r/t non nav with the Boston premium system. Nice looking unit and great display. Sound quality is better than the stock unit. I am running it through the factory amp and speakers with the Radio Pro which is awesome I highly recommend it as it solves the can-bus install problems. I have the pre-outs connected to a RF P400-4 running a pair of Diamond Tweeters and a JL 500/1 running an RE SE 10" sub to round out the sound.

    It does have a few issues. The Bluetooth takes longer than expected to connect compared to my Pioneeer and also lacks the SQ via Bluetooth the Pioneer has. The controls seem a little strange as well to un-pause the music you hit the MENU button? Pandora seems to hijack the unit every time I want to play music via USB cable even when it's not running.

    All in all I recommend this unit as it sounds great and has great features. It does have a few quirks but nothing major.

    Pros: Display, time alignment, DSP, high volt pre outs

    Cons: Bluetooth slow to connect and scratchy at times, controls are not intuitive

    I changed my factory radio and speaker looking for some improvement on the audio quality of my 2002 Mazda Protege. I got surprised with the quality of the audio. pairing this radio with 4 Rockford Fostage Punch speakers make it sound great without the need of adding a separate sub-woofer. the feature that let you change the color of the lights, fit perfectly with my car dash red color. possibilities are endless with this feature. adjusting the Audio/DSP and you can immerse yourself with the sounds providing a better perception of were these instruments are located.

    Pros: great sound quality. features described worked great.

    I bought this unit to replace the original radio in my 2004 Ford Explorer and have been using it for just one week. Crutchfield's instructions made the installation very smooth, although I did have to call tech support regarding the amp connections that weren't described in the supplied instructions. Although cheaper elsewhere, I bought from Crutchfield because of the vehicle-specific wiring harness and installation kit, the 60-day return policy, and the great customer/technical service most reviews talk about.

    The biggest problem I have had so far was the clock. About 10 minutes after starting the vehicle (and turning the unit on), the clock would reset 4 hours and 12 minutes in the past. From there it would keep time and then spontaneously correct itself to the current time. The solution was turning off the Auto setting for the clock adjustment (Auto was the default) which syncs the time to a satellite radio signal. Since I don't have a satellite radio, who knows where it was getting the signal from. I would still like to know why it always reset exactly 4 hours and 12 minutes, though; that seems like a random value.

    Pros: Fits nicely into the space; sound is customizable; clock remains visible while unit has power

    Cons: Microphone could be improved. Source selection is tedious

    I've had this in my 2008 Honda Element for a few years and so far so good, well almost*

    I chose the double din for it's ease of use. I'm 50 year's young, but my eyes are-a-not-so-good for close ups as they once were. The double din size means I no longer have to put on my reading glasses every time I need to adjust the head unit.

    Sound Quality - I know this is relative and being a lover of "old school" ie., vintage Marantz, EPI system in my man cave, the JVC satisfies my need for clean crisp (digital-Ipod sound source) sound while traveling without offending my ears. Even with the stock dual front and rear speakers (yes, I know it's a sacrilege) it sounds, well - surprisingly good.

    It has decent power without the need for a separate amp. The efficiency of the dual cone speakers helps as well. I originally installed a Clarion double din unit. The Clarion CX501 is very nice btw. It was slightly smoother than the JVC, but on the flip side the JVC has a crisper, more detailed sound. I'm sure it has something to do with the digital to analog converter. If it were in my home, I'd lean toward the Clarion's warmth, but in a Honda Element (aka noisy interior) the JVC is a better choice. Since I wasn't installing a separate amp, the JVC's extra power vs the Clarion also made a difference. Both are great sounding units in their respective price range. I could be equally happy with either, especially if I were to add a separate amp to the Clarion and better speakers.

    Pros: Good Value Adjustments not too challenging to work while driving Good Quality Sound without a Separate Amplifier I like the generous size volume knob; although it's personal preference I'd prefer a non-chrome knob. Ease of Use is about Average - some units need study and practice to operate. The JVC is nearly intuitive to figure out. Not so bad. Bluetooth works well with the JVC. The Clarion Unit was quirky, working off and on with the need for fiddling.

    Cons: *Now for the "well almost" part. On occasion, the unit will not turn on or the display won't come on once you've turned on the ignition and drive. Turning the ignition off and then on again fixes the problem. The only challenge is sometimes I don't notice this until I'm off and on my way. Again this happens only once and a while but it's not as you can imagine something I enjoy. I like the unit so I live with it. The radio doesn't auto scan. I'd like to see a scan feature on the radio.

    Exchanged a Kenwood DPX500BT for this unit. It was only installed a couple of days ago, but I am impressed so far. Installed easily in my '07 Frontier. Sound is very good and setup, even for the bluetooth, is simple. One of the main reasons I chose this unit is that the clock is displayed when the unit is off and also in all modes when the unit is on. Color can be set separately for the display and the buttons and the button color can even be turned off during the day. Display can be light on a dark background or vice versa making it easy to see at night.

    Pros: Clock can be on when unit is off, plus during operation. Color can be turned off on the buttons during the day. Display can be light on dark or dark on light.

    Cons: Display brightness is adjustable, but a greater range would be nice.

    Nice radio, sounds great, could use more detailed instructions. I would buy again,

    Pros: Great sound, looks nice.

    Cons: Poor user instructions. I had to fiddle around, try this and that to get the sound I wanted. I'm old so a young punk kid would find it easy.

    Good upgrade

    Unit would not match my stock speakers. had a treble "buzz" at the end of every note. 5 band EQ would NOT take this sound out. installed in a buick with 9 stock speakers and a stock amp. Unit would probably be great if building whole system from scratch. Crutchfield was great and swapped it out for me. new Sony had some setting that took this "buzz" away.

    Pros: lots of buttons to play with

    Cons: sounded bad

    JVC KW-R900BT Great
