Our take on the 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.

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.

Good amenities for the price.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Really pleased with this unit, especially at this price point. It has been very easy to use and learn all the functions, and the handsfree phone is a nice addition to the truck. The Bluetooth connection works seamlessly with both phones. The display is easy to read, even in bright sun, and the variable colors made it easy to match the rest of the dash display.

    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.

    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

    Evaluated 3 other units from Kenwood, Alpine, Sony - chose this over others because of price/performance/feature vs. value. Installed in 2011 Nissan Xterra w/RF sound system (love the 5v outs). The LCD display features separate day/night settings, positive & negative LCD display, separate color adjustments for buttons, LCD; power off clock display. 4 line LCD display. Great EQ section - plus speaker size & time delay adjustments. Level trims for sources (except FM), BT works great with Galaxy 3 & IPhone 4. Menus really easy to operate. Only thing I don'r like - it uses old style XM tuner (PIA + XM tuner - Audiovox) - similar if you use SIrius. No RDS time sync. HD Radio optional (via J Bus). Installed easy in Metra Kit (will not fit the SCOSCHE dash kit - you need to cut plastic.) Note: for late model Xterra - use the Crutchfield harness - the Metra Online site lists the wrong part - do not use that one. Overall - Great deck for the $$$

    Pros: 5V pre outs, power off clock display, front USB, adjustable/reversible LCD dimmer & colors, great EQ section, 4 line LCD display, DSP + speaker size / distance optimization, remote included

    Cons: SiriusXM - uses old technology tuners (would be nice to use new breed of XM tuner), incorporate HD Radio + RDS time sync (has no RDS - manual clock set), BT uses USB port (should be on-board?) Unit looks a little boring / dated

    Wanted to upgrade my system to get better iPod integration and add Bluetooth, as handheld cellphone use in a vehicle in IL is going away soon. Got them both. Unfortunately, Bluetooth failed after about three days, but Crutchfield promptly replaced the unit. This unit is an excellent value. May have preferred a DVD unit, but my vehicle is older (2004) and spending even more $$$$ might not have been wise. Three lines of display was essential for me, and this unit works and sounds great.

    Pros: Price/Value, iPod integration and Bluetooth.

    Cons: While disappointed in the initial defect, really no cons for me otherwise. By comparison, probably getting more than you are paying for.

    Sound quality wasn't the best. Eq allows some adjustment but switched to a pioneer head unit and sound was greatly improved. Scrolling through the iPod to select an artist was terrible. The unit could not handle scrolling quickly and changes to numbers instead of artist name. Impossible to quickly find the artist you want. Remote has no options and was unusable for me. Will not consider another jvc head unit.

    Pros: Looks good

    Cons: iPod control, sound poor, remote

    I bought this because of the reviews it had vs the reviews for the Clarion CX501, which I have in another vehicle of mine. Big mistake. 1. just the looks of it in the dash, looks plain, almost down graded from the factory unit. 2. i don't think it compares to the Clarion in ease of use and features. 3. I had read reviews about the Clarion having poor blue tooth reception. but then i found that the JVC unit did the same. It was the phone, not the receiver. 4. now 5 months old, the display went out and none of the controls work. 5. I should of bought another Clarion. :(

    I just installed the JVC KW-900BT stereo in my 2006 G6 and I am really glad I chose this model. The sound quality is powerful, clear and the user interface is easy to navigate for nearly all features. The Bluetooth features are great and work well with my iPhone 4S for streaming music and in making and receiving phone calls. I would recommend this unit for anyone looking for a great factory replacement, with a factory installed look, packed with quality features.

    Instalation and wiring took a little over an hour and one call to tech support. I had a wire not accounted for in the instructions. It must be a common problem because when I described the problem the tech asked where the blue and ahite wire was connected. Works fine with a micro sd in a usb adapter. Scrolling through is a snap abd I have 7 gigs on the card. I haven't signed up for sat radio yet, maybe later.

    The factory "Premium Sound" head-unit in my 2007 Honda Civic EX Coupe recently went berserk with LEDs flickering and changing radio station presets and sources at its own will. When the power button and volume knob developed a strange sort of possession, I decided it was time to just move on and replace it. A friend recommended this model and a conversation with a Crutchfield adviser (Dan, I believe) ended with a decision to purchase this receiver as the successor on the throne of my Civic's dash. I really like that both my wife and I can pair our phones when we're both in the car and make the lights turn different colors depending on whose phone is ringing. The bluetooth audio is easier to use than I expected. Overall, I really like this new unit and would recommend it highly to anyone looking for a new unit with lots of features that will not break the bank account in the process. After over a month of use, I'm still a very satisfied customer

    Pros: Features, pairs with two phones at a time, easy to use, easy menu setup, plenty of power, nice crossover settings, custom button and screen colors, variety of dimming settings, plenty of cord on mic, good reception (AM/FM), plenty of power (amp-wise), looks good, easy to see and use, screen clarity, two USB ports (one used by bluetooth). plenty of screen brightness during the day, plays nicely with both of our Motorola Android smartphones (Atrix 4G and Atrix2)

    Cons: CD takes a little longer than stock to spin-up and play, no CD text in the "CD Menu" track selector, call audio from car supposedly muffled sometimes

    Installed this in my 2005 Infiniti G35 w/ Bose, using Metra 95-7605 panel and iDatalink Maestro steering wheel adapter. Fit well, with only minor bending of some tabs on the JVC bracket. I had to call Crutchfield with a few questions on wiring the supplied harness--yeah, there's plenty of soldering--but the answers were straightforward and the thing fired up on first try. I bought this mainly for the Bluetooth hands-free calling and streaming music. Everything works perfectly with my iPhone5... even the front USB interface with the new lightning cable. Here's what really makes the system shine: I programmed the Maestro function for "voice dial" when I hold the PWR button down on the steering wheel. That brings up Siri, which lets you do just about ANYTHING on the phone purely with voice recognition, via the head unit's mic and speakers: calling from your phonebook, selecting a playlist, navigating, etc. I had been considering a Pioneer AppRadio, but with the iPhone5 integration so smooth on this JVC, I'm glad I bought this. Having nav on the iPhone screen mounted high on the dash is actually better, in my opinion, than having to look down at the head unit. Everything else works great. Audio output is pristine; the factory "Bose" amp/speakers still sound good. Menus very easy to navigate. The custom colors are awesome... can make it look like OEM. Only minor gripe is the control dial, which feels just a little flimsy. We'll see how it holds up...

    Pros: BT integration, intuitive menus, versatile colors

    Cons: Slightly flimsy dial.

    While this unit had "cool features" , mine has been nothing but problems. My first unit started giving me problems @ 3 months.(On start-up, one channel would delay coming on by about 2 seconds). Crutchfield was actually very helpful and sent me a replacement unit.It has now been 1 year and about 1 week since that 2nd unit arrived and the unit broke today completely. Crutchfield says the 1 year warranty starts on the day of the purchase of the 1st unit. (Cutting the warranty on the 2nd unit short by 3 months). Anybody else out there have a problem with a car stereo only lasting 1 year? This is the 2nd one that broke in a year so I bet Crutchfield knows about it, and they want to charge me to look at it and the repair could cost more. Don't buy this model!

    Pros: Crutchfield customer support was good on the first unit.

    Cons: Crutchfield customer support was HORRIBLE on the second unit.. They've just lost a customer.

    I bought this radio for my wife, mainly to keep her from buying a visor mounted blue tooth speaker/mic for her phone. This head unit is amazing and now I want one too! Not only will it play our music via BT, thru the cars speaker system, it will pause it when a call comes in **From either of our phones**. Same goes for voice navigation, txt to voice messages... Anything! Its really impressive in my opinion. There are other HU's with the same functions but I got this one for the easy access presets. This JVC has large easy to press button that you wont even have to take your eyes off the road for. I previously only bought Sony's and I cant even figure out how to change the station on my best friends Pioneer and find the menu system in this very easy to understand. The display is easy to read and you wont have a lightshow going on while you're driving either. other reviewer have mentioned the high quality sounds to which I concur. Reception is amazing. I haven't compared side by side with my Sony but I think it pulls even more stations than mine does. The only difficult part was installing the mic; its remote and on a 12' cord and will reach just about anywhere. I mounted mine near the top of the cluster where you can't even see it sitting there under the lip of the dash. it works great too plus the HU has an gain setting for the mic as well as a separate volume settting for the BT audio stream.

    Pros: everything.

    Cons: none yet

    Wanted a receiver with iPod control, Bluetooth (hands-free phone and streaming audio) and aux input for my portable XM receiver. Got all of those in this receiver! Easy install with the kit provided. Bluetooth works great. Hands-free phone paired without problems and audio for calls (both sides of conversation) is solid. Streaming also solid. iPod controls work perfectly - filled up my old 3rd gen pod with tunes, hooked it up the glove box and I'm in business! I did add the KS-u58 J-Link adapter to the back of the unit to connect to my XM receiver - easy to do. Overall - looks good, sounds good. Display is only downside - could be bigger and brighter. Was only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars.

    Pros: Bluetooth, iPod controls, aux input options, easy install, sound quality, looks good in the dash

    Cons: Display could be bigger/brighter

    The Radio does produce great sound the factory Bose system in my 2003 crew cab truck. This was the first time ever installing an aftermarket radio and thank goodness for the folks at Crutchfield. The info that comes with the JVC radio is not all that clear and many calls to Crutchfield got me squared away. The radio does pair very easily with the Bluetooth and I had some concern that the steering wheel controls would not function properly. Initially they didn't so I had to take the Axxess and hook it to a computer and get the latest updates downloaded which was not difficult at all and the steering wheel controls work great. It does take some time fiddling with the buttons to figure everything out but once you do a couple of set ups it becomes much easier. Getting the radio to fit nicely was a bit tough and I will have to pull the radio back out and try to get it better. I would say that you want to perhaps trying to take the sleeve off the radio .... it comes with attached but in the instructions it states you can remove to fit in vehicle. Anyone that puts this in a GM truck etc you will find only 2 primary wiring harness connections and the antennae to disconnect. What you have once you wire everything up to match up is a large bowl of spaghetti wires to back into the same space the OEM unit came out of. If you take out the air conditioner control module below the radio (3 screws) it will allow you reach under the radio and get the wires moved into the slots.

    Pros: sounds great, Bluetooth works good, the usb front is great for music you have on a flash drive, looks good. display very visible during the day; lots of combo's to suit your vision; Tech Support and Customer service very supportive and patient for someone who struggled initially.

    Cons: the overall color of the large knob is a bright silver which is in total contrast to the entire dash. JVC should provide a "pop-on" replacement for black.

    I purchased this unit for my 2012 F-250 and couldn't be happier. The sound is amazing , lots of features and color combinations. Installed with this product I also purchased the SiriusConnect SC-C1 unit with the JVC KS-SRA100 interface module. Connections were easy and all cables were included. I also installed a Directed 150 watt amp and 10" Cerwin Vega subwoofer in a proform cabinet. The sound is amazing. It took me a total of 3 1/2 hours from start to finish including the amp wiring but it was well worth it. The bluetooth paired up with my HTC Evo in about a miniute. I called Sirius to activate the unit and was up and running in ten minuites. once you take some time to familiarize yourself with the controls adjusting is a breeze. cool dispay with multiple configurations. I especially like that it has a clock that can be displayed in different ways. Crutchfield , your the best..

    Just installed this about two weeks ago into my 2005 Subaru WRX STi, replacing another after market radio. After taking care of the wiring, the radio went in very quickly, but I was not receiving FM/AM stations. What I determined is that there is a separate wire (blue/white stripe) coming from the radio that connects to pin 14 (blue wire) in the harness. So, be sure that if your car antenna requires additional power from the radio, you need to connect these. Other then that, programming took some time, but wasn't too bad. iPhone connected easily via bluetooth and very good call quality on both ends. Sound is amazing on my stock speakers, and this radio is a great improvement to my other after-market radio. I had thought about new speakers, but looks like all I needed was a better radio. The ability to change display/button colors is a nice feature...being able to match my instrument cluster lights. Looks good, sounds good, easy to use after you get the hang of it, and no complaints yet. My brother also bought this radio based on my recommendation, and he's a very picky/tech savvy person...that is saying something.

    Pros: Sound is amazing on stock speakers

    Cons: Complicated set-up at first

    Very happy with this head unit. I really like that the display gives all the info without scrolling unless the album or song title is to long. The Bluetooth works very well and has only failed to connect one time. I was able to shut the unit down, then power back up and it connected no problem. I have not been able to access the music menu from my iPhone while in in the Bluetooth mode which the manual says SHOULD be available depending on device. The menu is available when plugged into the USB port in iPod mode. The sound is a great improvement from the stock head unit even before I installed new speakers. Factory preset EQs are nice plus being able to set my own. The three loudness settings add versatility also. Installation was very straight forward with the instructions from Crutchfield and the manufacturer and was completed in about two hours. The large buttons make this unit very easy to use while driving and navigation through the features is fairly easy once I became familiar with it.

    Pros: Bluetooth works great, USB charges phone, display is visible even in bright sunlight, easy to use.

    Cons: Can't access music menu from iPhone in Bluetooth mode.

    Overall has a lot user options & features, the sound quality was improved from factory stereo even with factory speakers hooked up, has an excellent classic looking car stereo look to it without going overboard (which to me is like a touchscreen computer looking screen/I personally like the buttons on the faceplate), & I think this is one of the best car stereos on the market at the moment even with the extra cost (it's worth it).

    Pros: Lots of options & features with color, sound, settings, eq, etc.../Great sound quality/Looks Excellent without going overboard

    Cons: Takes a little time to load a usb device (in my case flash drive 128gb) when you turn on the car (maybe 30 seconds) & takes some getting used to the menus (menus aren't to difficult)

    Crutchfield knocked this one out of the park, Customer Service, Tech Support was right now no scripts no manual to read from answers straight from their professional knowledge with no hesitation. All equipment and parts all there first time around. All I can say is this is the third time purchasing from Crutchfield and not one disappointment. I would recommend them over and over again with no regrets. GREAT JOB Crutchfield don't ever change just keep getting better.

    Pros: All and more from the Crutchfield team quality products served up from quality folks

    Cons: None absolutely none. except that maybe throw in steering wheel module for the replacement interface??? LOL

    First of all I was after sound quality over anything else. The Burr-Brown 24-bit D/A Converter was a big selling point for me, also, at 20 watts RMS there is only 1% THD... Compared to the Pioneer I was looking at that was 5% THD at 20 watts RMS. Less THD, better sound, safer for your speakers. If you are using an external power amp I guess this doesn't matter, but for me running with no amp it does. Paired with some Focal speakers, there's plenty of clean power for my tastes. I could have bought this somewhere else for a little cheaper, but help being a call away is priceless! You call, you get NO automated system, goes right to a tech and they know their stuff! Awesome, thanks guys! ATTENTION Jeep Patriot owners...You only have to cut the top part of the factory bracket off. Leave the bottom part intact for support.

    Pros: Burr-Brown 24-bit D/A Converter, Lower THD at 20 watts RMS than most, 5 band EQ

    Cons: Display could be a little better, but I was willing to give up on some things for sound quality.

    Great sound... awesome system!

    Overall this is a great system. I read the review and was a bit skeptical with regards to the bluetooth capabilities and after the install I quickly realized that it's best if you don't have the phone in your pocket when attempting to use the BT capabilities. Seems silly but people complained about it... yet I simply take my phone out of my pocket, place it on the dash or the cup holder and have not had ANY issues with the BT connection. My wife loves it ... and that's good enough for me.

    We bought this receiver to replace the tired old stock CD player in my wife's minivan. We mostly wanted it for the Bluetooth calling capabilities and the front USB port,through which we plan to play a bunch of kids' books and music on a thumb drive. It has exceeded our expectations on both counts. For the Bluetooth calling, we have been very pleased with both the incoming and outgoing sound quality in our so-far limited testing. A big bonus that we weren't expecting is that this unit "supports" our iPhones' Siri function. Pressing a button on the receiver invokes Siri, through the car's speakers, at which point we can get directions, or place calls, or do other Siri-powered things, all through the receiver's external mic. Really, really nice. For playing music and books through the front USB port, we were pleased with the relative ease by which we can navigate to a specific tune or book. It's nowhere near as easy as on an iPhone or ipad, but given the restraints imposed by the small screen and limited controls, it does a pretty good job. Other nice features: Pandora integration, even over Bluetooth. Radio timer, by which my wife can set the radio to switch to NPR every morning, automatically. Integrated with the steering wheel controls easily, through a third party (not included with the receiver) adapter.

    Pros: Bluetooth calling and Siri integration. Pandora integration. USB media player.

    Cons: Some of the controls, specifically relating to using a Bluetooth device, look a little daunting to use and memorize. Probably unavoidable given the form factor.

    I wanted to replace my factory stereo with something that had all the same features and found them in this unit! I couldn't be happier with the sound quality and with ease of use of the stereo! I did have to modify a little to get the unit into the dash but was easily done with a dremmel. This was my first attempt at installing myself and the Crutchfield team was fantastically patient with me and walked me through every question. Stereo came out sounding better than I had hoped! highly recommend this unit!

    Pros: easy to use, great sound!

    Cons: none so far!!

    Replaced factory head unit in my 2012 Honda Civic with this radio. The sound quality and features make this a great buy. The bluetooth works perfectly and is crystal clear. I put the bluetooth adapter in the front USB and was able to route the rear USB cable in order to maintan my factory USB connection in the center console. This means no messy cables showing. The free wiring harness and installation kit made this sucker a breeze to install too. Only Crutchfield offers this. Their customer service is nothing less than top notch. I have factory speakers in the doors, and a set of 3 ways on the rear deck. Honestly, the factory speakers in the door sound better than the replacements I bought. I plan to repalce them all soon with some higher quality units.

    Pros: BT is great. Sound quality rocks.

    Cons: none

    Overall, I was very satisfied with the JVC KW-R900BT receiver. Once my future mother-in-law got a new car with a hands-free bluetooth calling feature, I have wanted to have a receiver with built in bluetooth, so I can make and receive calls safely when I'm traveling. After doing some research, I ended up with this model, and it turned out to be perfect for me. Before, I had the stock CD player, but I had a four channel amplifier and aftermarket speakers. The difference in sound quality between the stock CD player and the JVC KW-R900BT is night and day. My system overall sounds much better. I also tried the bluetooth calling feature, and it works very well overall. To me, the sound quality was good, but to the person on the other end of the line, they said it sounded good, but as if I were on speaker phone. In case you were wondering, I installed the bluetooth microphone on the center of the dashboard. Installation was a breeze, and the wiring harness, installation kit, and instructions given by Crutchfield are very helpful. In all, it took me almost as much time to solder all of the wires together as it took to install the receiver. If you are looking for a reasonably priced receiver with bluetooth built in, you should definitely consider this receiver.

    Pros: Sound Quality, Bluetooth Built-In, Inexpensive compared to other models with similar features.

    Cons: Bluetooth microphone could be smaller; perhaps even built into the unit. No touchscreen display (but for the price, does it really matter?).

    Very good unit for the price. I was looking to replace the factory unit in my 2003 Tahoe. Mainly wanted something that interfaced with my iPod Touch, allow me to keep my On Star service, and use my steering wheel controls, and sound as good as or better than my factory stereo. It met my needs plus has some cool extras. Love the ability to change the display colors to suit my mood. It interfaces very well with my iPod, and allows me to attach via a USB port on the front, or by Blue Tooth. I have the option to control the iPod via the stereo unit, or use my iPod to control. All the other functions that are advertised seem to work well. Blue Tooth connection was easy. Had to read the manual to figure out the EQ controls, but most other menu functions are self-explanatory.

    Pros: Looks Good Fun to change display colors Plenty of options to tweak sound to suit your individual taste.

    Cons: EQ setup requires reading the manual first No Aux Input RCA jacks on the rear

    For a different car, I was looking for a high sound quality head unit and had a lot of difficulty finding one. Manufacturers seem to rely more on features than sound quality. I bought this one for a convertible and in that application, sound quality is less important due to the high noise level making it difficult to hear the details anyway. Despite that, I believe it sounds better through the stock speakers than the stock radio due to the time alignment. Something else that seems to be missing from all aftermarket car radios is speed sensitive volume. I experienced this once and really liked it. I've never seen one since. It would be really handy in the convertible. Giving up on that, I only had one real criteria; a USB port to read music off of a flash drive. This one had two, one on front and back. Very nice. Changing the colors on the display was not necessary for me, but it is nice to have it, to match the dash lights in the car and it is well implemented in this head unit. I don't believe in talking on the phone while driving, so I cannot comment on the hands free microphone. Now that I have my USB connection, no automatic volume control on MP3 playback has become a huge issue. Included wiring adapters for my car made install easy. That was awesome.

    Pros: Time alignment is super cool, you can hear the sound quality improve as you rotate the knob. Pandora on an Android phone blue tooth connection is awesome. Big knob in the middle with a quick mute is very nice. Wide variety of lighting colors including day and night mode, is appreciated. USB in front and back is awesome.

    Cons: -I saw a radio (Pioneer I think) that would correct the volume playback between MP3 tracks that were wildly different. This has become a huge issue for me. Despite using a normalization program on my digital music, I still find myself reaching for the volume knob as I am continually blown away by or unable to hear a track. Very annoying and probably my biggest issue with this radio. I didn't think it would be a big deal, but it is. -Tuning the radio, not using scan is not intuitive at all.

    so far so good

    I have only had the stereo installed for 2 weeks, and so far it has delivered nearly everything as promised. I have an iphone 5 and the radio controls work great when the phone is plugged into the front USB, however when I am using the phone with bluetooth, I can only operate itunes with the phone controls, not the radio controls... (This may be operator error, however I have yet to find a fix.) I need to also mention, I had trouble installing the radio. The removal of the old stereo from my 06 tundra was easy. But, because I was also installing steering wheel controls and another device so I could use my factory amp, I was terribly confused. I made several calls to tech support and the the first 4-5 calls were fine. Each techie helped a bit. At the end of my rope, with my head buried in my hands and my tail tucked between my legs, I called and spoke with Mike (I am about 90% sure that is his name. I wrote it down so I could leave a favorable review, but I recently cleaned out my truck, and the sheet of paper is gone. I am genuinly disappointed I can't confirm his name.) He was AWESOME!!! He stayed on the phone with me for nearly an hour and walked me through wiring the 3 units correctly. Then he gave me the number for his direct line so I could recontact him with further questions, which I did. And he was just as helpful the second time. Thanks!!

    Pros: bluetooth, sort-of stock look, fits, sound great

    Cons: unable to use itunes menus with bluetooth

    Bought this unit primarily for use with iphone 5 and bluetooth handsfree. Wow, great improvement of sound in my 2000 E-150. The instructions were clear, but wish that I did not have to modify the dash to preclude reinstallation of factory radio. The use of Ipod and streaming oldies over the iphone is great. The menu tree is confusing to old guys like me, but if you keep the owners manual nearby you can get it to do everything that is advertised.

    Pros: Does everything that is advertised. Could not be more pleased. Great Value

    Cons: Had to modify dash so that factory radio cannot be reinstalled

    Awesome head unit with plenty of features. Bluetooth audio streaming and phone calls work great with android phone. USB feature is awesome as well (as others have noted, it does take a minute or so to read the USB. I have 60 GB worth of music on mine and it takes a while to load but works flawlessly after that) If you don't care about a touchscreen or a huge display, this is a GREAT head unit. Installed in an 03 silverado... I did NOT have to remove the metal support bracket.

    Pros: Sound, features, ease of use, value

    Cons: only complaint is that the display can be hard to read during the day... easily fixable though, just switch to a brighter color.

    Extremely satisfied with this head unit. It's really the first stereo upgrade I've ever done on a car, and I'm glad I chose this. I was looking for a unit that included lots of features like iPod connectivity, Bluetooth, HD radio, and also had an attractive, almost OEM look. This JVC unit is great. Good sound quality as far as this amateur can tell, very easy to use, and with great lighting customization. Looks great in my Miata. If I was going to improve anything, it would be slightly higher quality feeling buttons and a microphone that could be placed somewhere inconspicuous and still receive sound well. Otherwise, superb stereo with lots of features, solid sound, and a decent price.

    Pros: Looks great, lots of features, sounds good

    Cons: Somewhat cheap feeling buttons

    Good sound system all around, only sound that is slightly weak compared to others is on public radio stations. It's awesome playing music from iPod or CD, and has good sound from radio just not as loud as from iPod or CD. Looks right in my 1989 Toyota Supra since we matched the colors on the radio to the dash colors, only thing is that it is a glossy face instead of a more mat finish to it. Overall I am very impressed and my husband was very impressed with how easily the wiring harness made the install and yet it still looks very sanitary. Once you go through the manual and set it up it is easy to use, but it takes a little time to get the initial setup.

    Pros: Great sound in most applications, for me I don't even need to buy an amp to boost it at all.

    Cons: When playing off of local radio stations sound is good but weaker volume, you might need an amp to boost output if this is how you normally listen to your stereo.

    Cons: I have only 1 negative review on this unit. When your phone is paired and you turn off the ignition, once you get back in the unit takes a while before it reconnects with your phone. I have waited up to 3 min to get re connected .

    I installed the following in my CRV EX: The JVC KW-R900BT An Alpine KTP-445u Powerpack Pioneer TS-A1604 component sets front and rear I mounted the front woofers in the factory door location, with the tweeters in the factory dash location. Rear woofers are in the factory door location, with extra holes added to the top/front corner of each door for the tweeters (flush mount). Bluetooth mic is in the blank switch panel below the shifter (I drilled a 1 1/2" hole in the blank). Crossovers are set to off on the Alpine amp, and 60hz with a 12db/octave cutoff on the deck. It's not high-end audiophile sound but it fulfilled 100% of my needs - to add some kick, Bluetooth, and iPod support to the car without compromising its usefulness as a hauler. No subs... No amps under seats... I kept those things completely off limits in my search. The Bluetooth doesn't echo. If you have a Honda, beware - there are two wires on the Metra harness, "illumination" (orange) and "dimmer" (orange/white). You need to crimp the orange wire into the JVC harness orange/white in order for night mode to work.

    Pros: Supports iPod playlists, artists, and albums 5 volt RCA pre-outs = stellar sound quality Has a "night mode" where the screen dims, switches to black background with colored lettering, and can even change color when you turn the headlights on. Bluetooth is clear and echo-free Double-DIN design looks awesome in my CRV

    Cons: Aside from the fact that the radio takes about 10 seconds to read the iPod when you start the car (vs about 5 seconds with the factory radio in my Civic Si), I have no cons to report. It is a minor inconvenience, not a problem, and the only time I really notice it is if I have been parked listening to music and then start the car (because it goes silent while the deck re-reads the iPod). Trust me, I'm very picky - it's a great radio.

    I bought this unit 5 months ago to replace the factory unit in my 2005 Mercury Montego. I shopped a lot of units in many places. This unit had everything I was looking for at a price that I found very affordable. Even the installation was fairly simple. I found some cool features inside that I didn't know it had, like fine tuning the speakers based on your seating position so it sounds "even" (essentially makes it sound like you are sitting in the middle of the car, not close to the drivers speaker and far from the others). It even comes with a little remote...

    Pros: Great quality unit. Great sound. Easy installation. Big, easy to read display. Adapts well via Bluetooth to my Android HTC Evo.

    Cons: None yet.

    JVC is known for quality; this unit is no different. I had to have a receiver with Bluetooth and worked with my steering wheel controls. Having 2 USB hookups is very convenient. I used the front for the BT adaptor because I already had a USB cable run from the rear to my center console for a flash drive. I'm still learning the controls, but so far everything seems very intuitive and user friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this receiver.

    I installed the JVC KWR900BT into my 2002 Mazda Protege to replace the non-functional stock radio. The installation was made easy because Crutchfield included the wiring harness for my car and instructions for everything. This deck has far exceeded me expectations. I've found that the pre-amped channels provide more than enough power to my speakers. I installed the Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683 5x7 speakers in the front doors and the JBL GT6-69 6x9 speakers in the rear deck. The JVC deck has optimized the potential of these speakers and my car sounds great. I especially like the rear USB cable which I ran into my glove box where I connect my iPod. It stays completely concealed and works flawlessly while charging my iPod at the same time.

    Pros: THE PRICE! The truly customizable equalizer. Three easy to read lines of text. The color and brightness will adjust between night and day. The clock sets itself. The rear USB cable. The over sized buttons make navigating features easier.

    Cons: In order to access the menu, you need to hold the menu button for 3 seconds. This would be better if you didn't have to hold it.

    Installed the KW-R900BT in my 2006 Xterra in order to gain Bluetooth phone, iOS device, and Aux input capabilities. Replaced the Rockford-Fosgate OEM unit that did have very good audio quality. New unit sounds at least as good if not better. Highly configureable audio settings. Works well with the R-F amp and sub-woofer. Several issues installing it in the Xterra. RCA line out sockets on the radio are located in a position that puts them very close to an air duct bracket that causes interference with the RCA connectors on the Crutchfield supplied harness. I obtained 90 degree adapters from Monoprice for about 50 cents each and was able to make it fit. Then encountered ground loop problem that resulted in a loud POP when turn off the radio or the ignition. I contacted Crutchfield tech help and they sent me some filters that solved the problem.

    Pros: Very good audio. Highly configurable sound and color. Bluetooth works well. Nice for iOS devices.

    Cons: Non trivial install for an Xterra. Trim kit virtually useless. Supplied harness not useable as delivered.

    I was really impressed with the quality of the sound I got from my iPhone. The original radio left my tunes sounding flat. This unit brought new life to the tunes. I love the new life this unit gives my favorite song. It allows you to custom tune your music until it matches your style.

    Pros: Easy to install and sounds great

    Cons: Display hard to read in bright sunlight
