Choose a source, choose a display color, choose an app — the JVC KW-R910BT gives you all the entertainment options you expect, and more. The symmetrical design looks terrific, while a host of connectivity features make this CD receiver an outstanding travel companion.
With built-in Bluetooth® and a variety of inputs, the KW-R910BT lets you access your digital media in a variety of ways. Play music from your iPhone®, Android™ or music player, or choose from JVC's ever-growing list of compatible apps. You can also plug a thumb drive into the front USB port, hook up your MP3 player to the front AUX input, or pop in a CD.
Once you plug your iPod or iPhone into the USB input, you can use the KW-R910BT's oversized knob and buttons to navigate your entire music library. With your iPhone connected, you can play your Pandora® Internet Radio stations through the receiver, and even skip and rate songs like you do online. The powerful USB port will keep your smartphone charged, even when it's doing several tasks at once.
Of course, you don't have to plug in at all if your iPhone is equipped with Siri® Eyes Free functionality. Just link up and enjoy hands-free control.
This sophisticated receiver also lets you pair two phones at once, so there's no need to choose between 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 how (or whether!) to answer the call. To answer, just tap the volume knob. And you can search your contacts alphabetically when you want to call someone.
Customize your receiver's appearance with the 3-zone variable color display.
If you like your display to look a certain way, you'll love the 3-zone Variable-Color Display. You can choose from over 30,000 options, and even assign three different colors to your controls and the display. Choose your three favorite colors, or make your JVC pay tribute to your favorite sports team – the choice is yours. And if you can't decide, let the receiver cycle through all the colors continually. It's actually a very cool effect!
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.
iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.
Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.
This deck is all I was looking for. It was super easy to install thanks to the kit that was suggested. Sounds great with an old amp and 10 inch sub I had laying around.
Pros: Easy to use and install
Cons: None yet!
When I buy a used car (which is about every 3 years or so), I immediately swap out the factory unit for a new one from Crutchfield. The last several I have chosen have all been JVC. This time was no exception. I put this model in a 2005 Toyota Highlander. I like that it is larger to fit the space left by the original unit. It fit well and was fairly easy to install. It has great features: USB port on the front for the kids to plug in their devices, the Bluetooth is great, especially for using the unit as a speaker phone with the included microphone + many more. Overall I am very happy with this purchase.
Pros: Easy to install. Lots of great features. Very good price.
I like the stereo very much. It looks nice in the dash of my van. My old stereo was a little difficult to remove from the vehicle but installation went pretty smooth. Modified Fit means you have to cut out part of the dash to fit the stereo in place. I used a little vibrating saw to do the trick. Worked pretty good.
Pros: Stereo works good. Looks nice.
Cons: Install was a little tricky.
Bought this to bring the old bomber up to snuff..I advise you to read the manual about a dozen times first to get the idea of how to set it up.....there are a zillion of them......first, the BT works great, had to adjust the EQ setting on user1 to the max, improves the call sound greatly.....it only takes about 10 sec. Or so to pair up with phone after start up...mic. Settings are tough to do , has to be with the phone on call, trial and error.....the cd and FM audio is awesome, am lacks the same punch with same eq on,, no big deal ...in bright daylight the display will wash out at times..minor problem..the one thing that urks me, when turning on your dash lights with the unit off at night, no lights come on to show you the display..stupid for a unit that has every light you could want..so to get around this, I never shut the unit down, just turn the key off..there is a few second delay when powered up , so the car will start before the head unit....like others have noted, the sound is excellent with the oem speakers, so dont see the need to replace, can it do later if want to....will take about 5 days or so to play with all the settings to get where you want to be, trial and error again.........well worth it.......
Pros: Great sound and looks........ The BT comes in handy or should I say handless....
Cons: No lights display with dashboard lights, when unit is off.........in bright daylight lose display.....
Great stereo for someone who an excellent price
My wife purchased this for me and i was a little apprehensive. I was so wrong. Installation took a total of less than an hour. Setup was a little longer. Other reviewers are correct that the initial usage isn't quite intuitive but it's not hard to figure out and once you do it's just as easy as factory. I installed it into a 2003 Chevy venture without any additional equipment such as steering wheel controls or back up cameras. I really thought I was going to have to replace the factory speakers because before the new head unit, they sounded almost blown and just terrible. After the new head unit, the factory speakers are 1000 times better. Still probably going to replace them for better quality sound but overall doable for now. I almost didn't even install the mic because i know most bluetooth stereos sound absolutely horrible on the other end. This one gives enough controls that my wife says it sounds as good, or better then my LG headset bluetooth. So functionally it is a sound quality unit that i'm even debating on replacing in my wife car.
The bells and whistles of this otherwise basic model are what sets it apart. Not only do you have color control, you have full control over the levels of blue,red,and green in the colors you choose. Bluetooth audio and pandora allow me to listen to my music and keep my phone charged without the static from a line in and aux power jack situation.
Final thoughts, probably the best unit out there if you don't need built in nav or
Pros: Color change with full control, ease of set-up and install. Also changes colors from day to night. Pandora works like a dream, iPhone music works great. Bluetooth calling sounds much better than anticipated. So many options you can truly make it your own.
Cons: Remote is a little tiny with not as many functions as i would like. Not as intuitive as I would like so you actually have to think while you set it up but once you do it's awesome.
Great head unit for the money, makes the stock speakers sound better than stock even if the speakers are stock. I had this unit in an acura rsx and i had no complaints about the unit until about two weeks after owning it the bluetooth stopped connecting to my iphone. i couldn't ever figure out what happened but the entire year I owned it i never could get it to work again. But other than that it is a very good unit
Pros: ease of use while driving, good color customization, good dash fit
Cons: poorly designed bluetooth
The install was easy. Instructions for the install were complete and left no guess work. The installed receiver looks great and fits great. I gave 4 stars on the Ease of Use because there's a small learning curve for the new receivers. Most of it is intuitively obvious.
Pros: Great price. Plenty of options including blue tooth.
Worth every penny
Pros: clear sound, easy to use, usb, hands free, seamless Bluetooth connectivity to multiple phones & easy assembly
Cons: additional usb will definitely help.
Have now had this radio installed for about a month--a big improvement over the factory unit (2010 Toyota Yaris). Sound quality is great and the bluetooth works just fine, including the phone and the remote microphone. The wiring harness that was supplied worked perfectly, too (I took the time to solder the connections and protect them with shrink-tubing).
Install was easy, with one minor complaint: The face of the unit sticks out about 1/4 inch further than the factory radio. This leaves a small gap between some of the car trim pieces. Not a big deal, and it looks okay. It's just not a perfect fit.
Finally, as others have noted, the control menus for brightness, color, equalizer, etc. are not very intuitive. With patience and constant checking of the manual you can eventually get where you need to go and make the changes you want to make. Shouldn't be that hard.
Pros: Good sound. Bluetooth connects easily with phone and works quite well.
Cons: Not a perfect fit. Menu sequence is confusing.
Pros: Matching colors
This is more of a comment on Crutchfield: The installation instructions provided for a 2005 Honda Pilot with Navigation do not actually apply to that car. They only have the ones for the standard non-Navigation system. I have yet to install it, but I'm sure I can find ones online. It would have been nice to have "real" ones.
Cons:Crutchfield response on January 23, 2016 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our tech support team right away. They can help you solve the problem and get the stereo installed and working! Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Sounds great and has tons of customization options! Bluetooth works like a dream, my only complaint is the Pandora and iHeart functionality is a little lacking.
Great inexpensive head unit
Pros: Blue tooth and usb are great
Cons: Unit doesn't autoconnect to my phone....
I used to have an old JVC model and I loved it. For some reason this model will not retain the hours for the clock. I have it wired correctly because the minutes always stay accurate, but the hours will not stay on time. Also, for those in colder climates, you might want to consider getting something else as this radio acts sluggish when below freezing. Also, another complaint that I have is that this radios volume settings are not very adjustable. I'm not saying it's deafening, just annoyingly loud. Even on 1 the radio seems super loud to me. When I have people in the car and we are talking I almost have to turn the radio off because even when the radio is on the lowest setting it is too loud. It isn't bad at highway speeds (because of road noise) but for city driving it isn't as adjustable as I'd like. Another complaint that I have is the JVC app. I couldn't figure out how to use it with my radio. Other than these complaints, this radio does everything that was advertised. The sound quality is great and it has a lot of great features. I just wish that the few things I complained about were better. JVC makes good stuff, I'm just not sure why this one has so many problems.
Pros: Great sound quality Lots of features Color customization Has a pretty good "night" setting
Cons: Clock will not retain hour time (only retains minutes) Sluggish when used below freezing Volume is either loud or off App is hard to figure outCrutchfield response on January 23, 2016 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
nice up grade to factory radio with a great price. Needed help from Crutchfield and they came through with their experience and knowledge.
Only way to do it yourself
Pros: great sound and help with instalation from Crutchfield
Cons: better description of radio on web site.
One week, and so far, so good.
Bought this unit to replace a poor quality aftermarket unit in my mustang. It's a much more quality unit than others that I looked at and reviewed. Install was simple and finished product was major upgrade. Even though the unit is not a newer model it performs just as well and maybe better than some of the more expensive models. The only 2 drawbacks that I have found are 1 ) the remote control is too small , hard to find while driving and 2) wish it had a build in mic for the phone bluetooth,even though it's a wired mic still looks and performs very well.
Pros: easy install controls are simple to use looks great in the dash
Cons: wired mic for phone bluetooth remote control is on the small side
Pretty east to install. Impressive for the price. Not easy to navigate the menus.
I like this stereo! It's easy to use and fits perfect! With the directions given and other things free with purchase made it easy to install myself.
While the unit met all of my expectations, I really want to say that the customer support I received from Crutchfield sales and technical support staff have made me a customer for life. I ordered the wrong adapter and called customer support. They quickly found the problem and shipped me the correct one and a label for free return of my old one. Once I got the new unit installed, I had some initialization issues and called tech support. This was Saturday and I got through immediately to a tech that knew his stuff and quickly resolved my issue.
Pros: Great systems, Outstanding customer support
Overall, I like this unit. There are lots of features and adjust-ability on receiver. I like the fact that you can change the colors. Day/Night changes with the headlights is very nice. Would be nice if you could set EQ presets with certain radio stations...if you can, I haven't figured that out. Microphone quality seems to be good and callers I've spoken to say I'm coming thru loud and clear. I'm not that familiar with all the various other receivers out there so I can't really say this one is better or worse, but it certainly has the features I was looking for and I'm glad I purchased it.
Pros: blue-tooth audio/pandora/iHeart
Cons: none to speak of.
This an awesome radio for the price
Shipping was fast and Crutchfield was awesome to work with. Install was a breeze and learning how to use the stereo was not bad at all. Bluetooth works perfectly and the sound is just as good if not better than mt old Kenwood I had. I was going to go with another Kenwood, but the price on this unit I just couldn't pass it up. I am so happy that I bought this JVC. The little remote is silly as it needs a better and bigger remote. However, I have no need for it so it's not a big deal. I do wish it had a better parametric EQ than just a three band EQ. Still, the presets are great and my system sounds awesome. I have a Android LG phone and setting it up was easy.
Pros: Pretty much everything
Cons: Little remote that doesn't do much but works.
First time installing an aftermarket stereo on a 2004 CRV. Nice upgrade! Sound is great, lots of nifty little features on this unit. Installation was a little tricky, but if you can install a light fixture, you'll be pretty comfortable connecting the various wires.
Pros: Looks nice. Inexpensive.
Cons: Instructions a little short (what to do with headunit blue wire ... ended up connecting to red wire after some internet sleuthing).
Not disappointed at all with this purchase. Still figuring out all the features that this is loaded with but the sound is great especially from iPhone. Huge improvement to plug it in with USB so it will charge while you listen versus the fm modulation I was doing before. Cd sound also good. I read complaints about fm radio reception but I've had no issues. Only had this for a couple days but VERY happy with my purchase. I had never bought from Crutchfield before but would definitely do it again. Their chat support when I was buying and their instructions were very helpful and made install easy.
Pros: Sound quality and iPhone Apple Music via usb.
Cons: None so far.
Great receiver. It looks cool and does all the functions that I wanted. Easy to install, but may take a few days to get used to the controls. Bluetooth paired right away, and after I mounted the mic and made my first call the person I called said they could hear me crystal clear.
Pros: Looks cool, and sounds great.
Cons: May take a few days of reading manual to figure out how all the functions work.... I am old though... took me a few days to figure out my new cell phone.
Great value and easy to install
Pros: All is good
Cons: None that I can tell
Works flawless can select any color for 3 different spots and it's rather easy to adjust whether your a pro audiophile or a regular stereo listener this head unit can accommodate both. This head unit send great quality sound to the speakers and is by far a huge improvement from anything stock. Very sleek looking and well built product
Pros: Clean design, easy to use, colorful by choice,
Cons: Nothing worth mentioning
This is a Great Unit it sounds and operates better than i expected!
Pros: Great quality, Easy to use, Sounds awesome and has a great Coolness factor
Cons: Couldn't find any
It's sounds good and the bluetooth works well. Having trouble using Pandora setting via Bluetooth
Pros: Sounds good with many features
Cons: All the settings could be set up better
Nice unit, sounds good, and blue tooth is great. Radio doesn't seen to pick up very well. Volume knob could use some texture to grip easier.
Installed easily in a 2010 Tacoma. sound quality much better and the Bluetooth is 10x better than stock. Music and phone calls are clear. Love that it has a USB port in the front that charges too. Well worth the money!
Came quickly. Had it professionally installed. Hooked it up and the display screen didn't work. Disappointing. Can't give a true review until it is fixed
Pros: Cool colors
Cons: Damaged display
This is my third Crutchfield purchase and differently not my last. I love the support and great customer service!
Pros: JVC fit perfect.
Only 1 week, so far. But my son really likes it. We will know more after a while. Easy to install with the free harness kit.
This is second JVC deck I've bought, I selected this one as a gift for my daughter's 2008 Jetta. I bought it because of the great experience I had with the first deck I bought.
Pros: The ability to simultaneously connect to two BT phones at the same time is great, especially with the fact that it flashes different colors depending on which phone is receiving a call. I wish my wife's Nissan factory radio would do that!
Cons: None noted.
I really love this stereo! It is easy to use, has many options available like Bluetooth, aux & usb. Absolutely love the color options! Very cool feature. Now I can really enjoy my music with the great sound from this stereo!
Nice Stereo for the money. Has all the features you would need. Hands-free audio and Bluetooth work very well. The various settings can get a bit confusing because there's so many options. Sound quality is good, even with factory speakers. Good bang for your buck, good radio, but it is by no means great.
Pros: Features, Hands-free/Bluetooth quality.
Cons: Over complication of settings, overall sound quality could be better
Easy to install and use. Every thing you could want in a car stereo. The price was great, and wow the many colors of this stereo and the quality is second to none. Thanks Crutchfield for all the help.
Pros: Great all around stereo and the quality and price can't be beat
I gave this to my husband for Christmas and he can not stop talking about it. Very easy to install and looks great in his Avalanche. When talking to the customer service rep he was very knowledgeable about the product and made sure I purchased all the additional hardware needed.
Pros: Very cool and easy to install
Great product, install was easy and I never installed one before. Directions were great, awesome experience. I will buy from Crutchfield again.
Pros: Looks good, install was easy and very affordable.
I've ordered from Crutchfield for many years and the recent order was terrible. No more step by step instructions but a generic guide with one drawing that didn't even look like our vehicle. The unit fit but we had to cut and modify the car, all of this was not indicated by anything Crutchfield sent us. Two trips to the store for parts to get it to fit. Still not there but we hope today in 32 degree weather we can finish it. This is going in my son's first car so my oldest son and I will have to finish it. I order from Crutchfield for the parts needed and the instructions that go with what we order. The extra cost makes it worth it. Well that ended this time. I can save 25.00 to 30.00 and order somewhere else. As far as helpful instructions and pictures and parts, seems Crutchfield no longer does that.
Pros: I gave it 2 stars because JVC makes really good stereos, but order somewhere else.
Cons: Cost more and you no longer get the help you should be paying for.Crutchfield response on December 28, 2015 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our customer service or tech support teams right away. They can help you solve the problem and get the stereo installed and working. We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up.

I have to start by saying I've been a long time pioneer guy. But the Great price and lots of features had me stray to try this. I replaced my old outdated business cd radio in my e39 bmw. What an upgrade. Sound quality is crisp and clean. Bluetooth capability is awesome. I now have hands free calling. I can stream my playlist through the iPhone iPod wirelessly. Or any other audio app like Pandora or I heart. Love this radio for the money. Has a nice coolness factor. And with all the free install gear and lifetime tech support its a definite buy in my book. A+ Crutchfield. I love this company. Excellent customer service. Super fast free shipping. What a value! Install was pretty straight forward with the MasterSheet. Had this in in less than an hour. If you're thinking about this purchase. Don't hesitate. Pull,the trigger. You won't regret it.
Pros: Bluetooth streaming capability. Hands free phone. Build quality. Coolness.
Cons: None yet
Much better sound than anticipated. Definitely a great buy
Pros: Sound is awesome. Install was easy. Love the display.
Cons: Takes some time to get used to the menu and controls to make adjustment.
Installation was a breeze. Sound quality is average and bass response is more hollow than solid. Biggest problem is viewing the display in bright sunny days..... unable to properly view display.
Pros: Easy installation
Cons: Display contrast poor in bright sunlight.
Had this head unit installed on my 2011 Tacoma access cab at the Harrisonburg store while in the are visiting family. It was paired with Polk Audio db6501 speaker and tweeter component set. From purchase to install the whole experience was great. The combined system sounds so much better than the factory radio and speakers. Gave it a good workout on a 6 hour drive back to SC. No complaints.
Over all this radio is awesome, if you are going to listen to CD, IPOD, USB, Smart Phone. Radio reception is absolutely horrible. 9.3db is good sensitivity for FM reception but someone was wrong about this number. Id say more like 19.3db. Very disappointed in this radio. If I knew this was an issue, i would not have bought.
Pros: Functionality, Features, Looks
Cons: Poor Radio Reception, Absolutely HorribleCrutchfield response on December 28, 2015 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to help the customer. We'll either help him get the receiver working the way it should, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.
This is an awesome radio it went in smoothly and had no issues at all. The radio Plays really well no matter what media you are getting the music from Awesome product
Pros: Great Radio for the price
Cons: none i can find
Ordered a complete system from Crutchfield about a month ago. Installed it in my wifes hummer. Their Tech was very helpful over the phone! He assured me I got all of the parts I needed to replace stereo and all the speakers. He was right. the kits they sent were so easy to install. Ive done many stereos and speakers before, and always is a pain in the butt installing without custom parts. The speakers in the doors sound amazing, and the stereo rocks it out as well. My wife was very pleased with her early xmas gift! She absolutely loves the sound and display of this unit.
Pros: Great tech support, easy installation. Great sound and display.
Cons: Not a one. Crutchfield.... great job! will be coming back this spring for subs!
I bought this for my husband for a Christmas present he absolutely loves it!!!! The colors are just awesome you can customize it to your liking he changes it every few days it really looks amazing at night, the sound is the best! I have no complaints whatsoever I've been buying JVC brands for years and will continue.
Pros: Price, sound, color effects, it comes with a remote, easy to use and assemble is quick.
Was shopping for aftermarket Bluetooth add-on for hands free phone. Found this JVC model priced well, so figured I'd try it for the price. Ended up being extremely happy with the unit. With all the installation accessories supplied and clear instructions, could not be happier. Looks Great, has good sound with OEM speakers, and Bluetooth works fine.
Pros: Bluetooth works exceptionally well for an add-on feature.
Cons: Tends to roll back quickly in Menu mode
seems like a quality unit. haven't had it long but seems really good. a little on the expensive side
Pros: aesthetically pleasing. looks significantly nicer than stock. seamless with streaming bluetooth audio from my phone
Nice radio, bought it for my teenager. Loves the sound and light show.
You could never find a better value in an aftermarket radio that this JVC!! Every feature was very thought out & the performance of the Receiver, CD, & Bluetooth is excellent!! Even the AM reception is better than any other I ever had!! Has all the connectivity you will ever need in a car radio!!
Pros: Value, Quality, Performance!!
Sounds great, looks great. The display does not change between day and night color setups when headlights are operating. Audio quality via Bluetooth, is nowhere near as good as when wired to iPhone/iPod. Other than those 2 issues, absolutely great.
Pros: Easy/quick installation with provided harnesses and mounting kits from Crutchfield. Sound quality is great with a factory amp and subwoofer. Preset EQ are as good as user set EQ.
Cons: Day/night color settings do not change based on vehicle headlights operating. Sound quality via Bluetooth is nowhere near as good as when FireWire USB plugged into unit.
it couldn't have been a better buy. All hardware was suggested and included with the purchase of the unit. They also included a PDF file to remove the old and install the new receiver. The 1.800 number also came in handy when it came time to splice the harness.
Pros: All the hardware was included with easy to follow directions
Cons: No cons
This JVC head unit is a great value. For all of the features that it has, and for the price that Crutchfield is selling it for; it is a bargain that truly can't be beat. After buying a used vehicle with an old radio that did not work, I picked this unit because of the features, price, and previous experience with other JVC products.
Pros: Features include: CD player, AM/FM Radio, Multiple Color Display, Bluetooth connectivity, Microphone for hands-free calling capability, remote control, AUX in and USB connections on the front of the device, Pandora and iPod controls. Easy installation was made possible by simple yet accurate instructions included with the unit.
Cons: The fact that I had to drive for a month with no music because I had not yet discovered this unit's availability.
Swapped radio with no issues. Sat in the house and connected wiring kit to radio harness then walked out and connected everything like plug and play. Worked flawlessly. Really rocks with the factory bose system! Installed in a 2004 GMC Yukon.
Pros: Easy installation, sounds good. Looks good.
Cons: Cant find any.
Install: Well its been over 30 years since i've installed a car radio. When I saw that Crutchfield got rave reviews for customer service i jumped on the band wagon. When I received the unit a few days after the order, I was a bit taken back by the wiring harness. I had thought that by purchasing a custom harness for a 2004 Chevy Malibu, that it would all be plug & play. there however were wires to solder coming out of the radio to the harness. There was an adapter to plug into the old plug that went to the old radio. Not as bad as it sounds. Most of the wires matched up perfectly color to color from radio to harness. I did have a few questions. I read (mistake) the JVC manual which stated that the yellow wire should be capped off, so i was confused, also there were two greens-one marked option 1(no clue). a quick call to Crutchfield answered my questions. attached the non option 1 green- turned out that was a steering wheel option. And attached the yellow. The instruction booklets were pretty useless as far as installation goes. They were detailed as far as removing the old radio. I had already done that from Youtube vids. Installation was pretty intuitive. The unit fit perfectly. Radio Usage: The radio fired up at least for me in demo mode. What that means is that the lights keep changing- looks like it shorted out, but didnt. Pandora stream-Great- Cd perfect. Hands free calling & answering-perfect. Have to get used to voice call-you speak into phone-not radio.
Pros: Pandora stream, looks cool, voice dialing auto answering.
Cons: Haven't found any yet.
great sound and good price
I bought this for my 2005 350Z. This was my first purchase from Crutchfield, and definitely won't be my last. The included installation instructions and parts made the setup relatively easy for someone with zero experience. Navigating through the settings using the beautiful shiny knob is intuitive enough that you don't really even need to read the manual (although I recommend that you do). There are plenty of color options for the three independently colors zones. The lights dim slightly when the headlights are turned on for nighttime driving. Several options for audio inputs ensures accessibility. Skipping during a song played through a Bluetooth connection is rare, but it has happened (usually just after the connection is made). For those on a budget, I'd highly recommend this product, especially around Black Friday!
Purchased this for my sons Pontiac grand am. Seems to be a great value for all the options that it offers. Sounds good and looks good. Connected easily to his phone and he loves it. First time Crutchfield buyer and enjoyed the purchase. Will do business with them again.
Pros: Allot of options for sound quality, looks and connectivity.
Cons: Very tight fit in the car I put it in. The wire harness on the back of the stereo is on the opposite side of what it needs to be, but it will fit.
The features of this deck are unreal. We put it in my girlfriend's car and she can easily change any parameters she wants and when I ride with her I can play with more in depth specifications that she doesn't necessarily care about. The sound quality is dead on and the adaptability for various sources is incredible. For the price tag this is an amazing deck to buy.
Pros: Audio quality Adaptability Parameters
Cons: Crazy strobe effect on display is distracting when driving.
This is an amazing deck for the price. The sound and clarity is very good, it is packed with features. I didn't want to spend a lot of money as I was installing this in a work truck so a major part of my decision was price. I am sorry I didn't purchase this a year ago. This deck was less than the price of the ticket I had to pay for talking on the cell phone. I really didn't expect a lot for the cost of the deck, it sounds good, it looks good and the bluetooth phone feature is very good. When making phone calls you can hear great and the sound quality for the person you are speaking with is very clear. This unit's performance exceeds all of my expectations.
Pros: Price, loaded with features, bluetooth phone.
I purchased this radio as an early Xmas present for my girlfriend. She loved the radio and especially the bluetooth. She synced up her Iphone and is ready to go. The radio has a lot of features and for the $ it is well worth it. It was a snap to install(well in her Hyundai, anyway) especially since it came with the install kit. I only purchased a few extras to do as professional a job as I could. Thanks to Crutchfield the whole thing went smooth.
Pros: Price. Features. Sound quality.
Cons: Nothing so far.
Love jvc products
Pros: Beautiful display, Bluetooth capability, excellent sound quality.
Cons: Don't know of any yet
Decided to chat with customer service about their recommendation for my daughters particular type of car and just went with it. I am very happy with the JVC, its features and sound quality for the $$. The install was so easy too and I did call tech support twice with questions that they answered in 15 secs and got me on my way. Happy all the way around with the purchase!
Liked it so much we got one for our other car. Thanks!
Works like a $1000 bucks and i'm very stubborn when it comes to sound quality. I was overly impressed. Granted it takes getting accustomed to the functions of the radio, but I love what it can do and the quality of the sound. Bluetooth works as it should, although it does takes a little long to connect initially when you FIRST get in the car. I'm talking 10 -15 seconds compared to instantly, therefore its tolerable. When i play pandora through my phone, once in a blue moon i have to select the item my bluetooth should connet to through my phone. All in all it was a very simple install, a great great product. It was a steal for $130!!
After my trusty JVC KD-A815 died, I replaced it with this unit. The double din size was a cleaner install in my 2005 Nissan Frontier, but the unit really falls short of being as functional as the unit it replaced. I am accustomed to having all of my music on one 32 gig thumb drive, plugging it into the rear USB port on the KD-A815, and then scrolling through my album collection alphabetically. After exhaustive study (and I have a Masters Degree), the software on this unit is so poor, it will only list the 400+ albums on my thumb drive from 1-400+. And, it will only do so one arrow click at a time. I say this with all sincerity, I will probably trash this stereo. This unit is so clumsy, its dangerous.
Pros: Lots of fancy disco lights you don't need. Lots of ways to connect your phone wirelessly, or with the more distracting USB wire. When you finish looking at the road, look at the dash for a while. Then follow the cord down to your phone so you can manage your music. I find this concept absurd. One person can't stay in the car, while the other takes the phone to do.....whatever. I can't believe Crutchfield sold me this stereo. I'm so disappointed.
Cons: The readout panel on this unit is terrible. The letters are large enough, but the display is so cheat it usually truncates portions of characters or entire characters. This includes names of songs and song numbers. I don't need the radio options. I'm a progressive rocker. What is Pandora going to do for me. And, again I have to connect my phone - and probably an expensive phone. I like my thumb drive. I take it out every couple of months to update the music. Otherwise, it stays in my truck.
For the price and purpose it's worth to buy.
Pros: Easy install. Easy setup. Looks nice.
Cons: Volume knob seems a bit feeble and has the potential to break off if not treated gingerly.
Great receiver, Bluetooth connects relatively quickly, easy to install, good RMS wattage. Seems to have pretty good radio reception.
Great Stereo, good sound. It took some configuring to get everything sounding the way it should. My only complaint is that I can't leave those settings in place when switching between different devices like phone, to radio, to bluetooth. The output quality changes and those settings need to be modified to produce good quality again.
Pros: Looks sounds ease of use
Cons: have to change settings for different inputs each time
Very surprised with how good it looked in my 2010 Nissan Frontier. Works great and once you get the hang of it it's a very good replacement.
This product is very easy to install. Took me a rookie an hour and a half from start to finish. Install instructions are great which is why I only buy from crutchfield. It is very affordable for what you get. LED lights are awesome. Sound quality is far better than my factory. Bluetooth works just as good as my 2014 Ford Flex. I make work calls more now than before.
Pros: Easy install. Looks great, sounds better, priced excellent
over all this is a superb value all the bling for a fraction of the cost since this was price oriented purchase and a short term fix for a short term problem i could not be more impressed with the accessible usb aux bluetooth paring and over wow of this inexpensive head unit.
Pros: has all the bells and whistles without the huge sticker price and since i dont spend hours in my ride this is a perfect fix to manufacture installed units. easy to install easy to operate classy look smooth operator
Cons: nothing to do with the system was purchased for my rsx but totaled it the day after I ordered the head unit... but to my surprise it would work with santa fe and Crutchfield was cool enough to send me the accessories and trim to fit that vechile saved me from sending this awesome head unit back for a refund
Extremely Fast Shipping! Install was a breeze, Looks & Sounds Great
Pros: Perfect fit, Looks & sounds great
Cons: menu selection was a little hard to get used too.
I thought the sound system on my Honda Element was a great one with the seven speaker w/woofer system until this head unit was installed. Simply amazing sound coming from what I considered more than adequate prior to installation. Other retailers had a three hour estimate for installation. The installer was impressed with 75 minute install and 15 minute system guidance training he spent with me. He credited in part to the inclusion of the proper connection parts. Only issue was the output converter wasn't needed for the install.
Pros: Sound output - terrific! Color face controls great. Daytime lighting excellent. Auto switch to night lighting, perfection. Install time was amazing. Arrived at 2:30 and back on the street by 4:00!
Cons: Learning curve for functions was a bit steep but I'm an Apple guy and we're spoiled rotten. Only thing that could be better would be an Apple head unit! Another 25 cents spent by JVC for a higher quality instruction manual would make the quality of their product shine!
Great product, excellent sound, easy to use features.
This is a nice stereo for the price. Looks good in the dash and has bluetooth streaming and hand free talking.
Pros: bluetooth streaming and hands free talking.
Great fit in my 2003 Honda CR-V. Radio used the existing brackets for the original stereo. Dimmer works with the metera harness I received. Sounds great with stock speakers. Not sure if it is playing to the tweaters or I don't have tweaters. Clearly seen during the day, and good dimming (adjustable) at night.
Pros: Dimmer function Good built-in amp BT compatibility
Cons: Awkward menu system (read the manual)
I can't rate on several factors. I have yet to get the radio installed. It was a priority when I thought the installation kit would make installation a breeze but the kit has proved incompatible with the existing wiring in my Miata. A previous owner had swapped from a premium to a base radio. There is no wiring adapter for the premium radio, I have to make my own wiring harness. I haven't had time to do this yet. Things went very well until this snag. Crutchfield Customer Service has been very helpful in identifying the problem.
Great head unit!
I bought this to replace the defective stock stereo. The installation was made easy with the kit that Crutchfield sold with it. The stereo is just what other reviews had stated...very good sound with a new look that fit right into the old car. I think the sound is great and I am able to crank it to as loud as I would like. It does take a little getting use to the setup menus, but even that is pretty "standard" once you do it time and again. I would recommend this stereo to anyone wanting to replace an existing stereo in an older older car.
Pros: 1. Easy to install 2. Sounds great 3. Modern features for a old car
Cons: 1. Cannot search for specific songs with the USB port 2. Setup takes a little getting use to with all those features
The features are incredible, a great value for your money.
Got this unit to replace the CD/Cassette factory unit in our Forester. It's perfect for commuting...easy hands-free operation with my iPhone 5s. The microphone picks up all voice commands accurately. The unit has plenty of power to drive a 6" pair of JVC speakers and a 4" pair of Kickers. I also added an 8" powered subwoofer that gets the bass on par with everything else and was easily plugged in to the rca connections at the back of the unit. The instructions from Crutchfield were clear and completely specific to my car! Easy install even though I've never done one before, fun project!
Pros: Sounds great, connectivity is great...Bluetooth works well, and the USB connection adds a notch to the sound quality, keeping all the functionality intact.
Cons: There's nothing I don't like with the unit!
