Have JVC, will travel

JVC's KW-NSX1 DVD receiver offers all the cool features you'd expect in a multimedia receiver: a sharp-looking 6.1" touchscreen, hands-free calling, audio streaming, variable color illumination, and comprehensive tone controls. And it's designed to work with a wide variety of smartphones, from audio playback with an iPhone® 5 to extensive control over select Android phones through MirrorLink™. 

Outstanding iPhone® app control

With your iPhone connected via JVC's KS-U30 cable, you can view and control a wide variety of apps on the KW-NSX1's screen through JVC's App mode (app control requires Lightning to 30-pin adapter with iPhone 5). You'll get basic control over audio apps like Rhapsody and Tunein Radio for simple functions like play/pause or track up/down, plus the ability to view streaming video from sources like Netflix and YouTube when the car is parked.

JVC's App Link mode (not available with iPhone 5) lets you view traffic info from Inrix, Cobra iRadar other driving apps when your iPhone's connected. For powerful navigation, download the MotionX-GPS Drive app (subscription required) and you'll be able to see maps and live traffic reports on the receiver's screen. You'll still need to access your iPhone, however, so consider adding an iPhone mount, for easy use.

MirrorLink offers outstanding integration with select smartphones

If your smartphone is a big part of your life, it's only natural that you'd want to tap into it when you're on the road. JVC's KW-NSX1 DVD receiver works with the MirrorLink system to provide unparalled in-dash control over an ever-growing list of smartphones, including the popular Samsung Galaxy S III and Nokia Symbian models. With MirrorLink, you'll enjoy touchscreen control over your music, phone contacts, and select apps — a seamless experience.

JVC KW-NSX1

MirrorLink offers outstanding integration with select smartphones.

What will I need for MirrorLink?

MirrorLink needs three elements to do its thing: a compatible receiver like the KW-NSX1, a compatible smartphone, and an app that works with MirrorLink. The system works like this:

  • Download the app (prices vary) to your compatible phone. This lets the phone enter "car mode," which provides a simplified graphical interface that's ideal for use in the car, as it's easy to see at a glance, and much easier to use.
  • Connect your phone to the receiver using the receiver's USB input and your phone's USB cable.
  • Launch the app on your phone, and tap the MirrorLink icon in the receiver's source menu. The optimized car mode menu will appear on your receiver's screen.

A full-fledged multimedia receiver

The KW-NSX1 also offers DVD, CD, and USB  playback, including support for MP3s, WMA, and WAV files. And you can enjoy video content on the screen when you're parked, or send video to rear seat screens when you're taking long road trips with the family. JVC makes it easy for you to take your Pandora® Internet radio stations on the road. Just plug in your iPhone and you'll have touchscreen control over Pandora right in your dash.

Speaking of Bluetooth

This receiver lets you enjoy the safety and convenience of hands-free calling with almost any Bluetooth phone. And you can stream audio from your device to the receiver as well, for a wireless, tangle-free connection whenever you get in the car.

Great for the rest of your music

Once you plug your iPod or iPhone into the USB input, you can tap your way through all your tunes and playlist on this JVC's responsive touchscreen. If you're not an iPod user, you can load up a USB drive or a recordable disc with digital files — it's easy to fit hundreds of tracks on either one, and you can still dive in using the touchscreen.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this JVC stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the JVC, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

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.

    DVD receivers: They're not just for movies

    DVD receivers add a new level of entertainment to your vehicle. You can watch a movie on the screen when you're parked on a Saturday night, or play a DVD through your rear seat video setup on the road. Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger. Most DVD receivers feature a USB input for audio from your iPod, and the ability to add an adapter that allows video to display on the screen. Some receivers even offer connections for a center speaker and a subwoofer, so you can build a full-fledged theater in your car, just like at home.

    Initially this product worked great with the verizon S3. When the verizon S3 firmware got updated sometime in september 2013 the unit stopped working as it was suppose to and would crash every time the drive link app started and was plugged in for mirroring. There was eventually a firmware update for the smartphone adapter inside and the phone still did not work for screen mirroring. Essentially the whole entire time I owned this it did not work as it was it was advertised. The bluetooth worked ok with it but now that it is 2015 I no longer have a S3 and have upgrade to the S5. This makes the product almost obsolete. However it still claims to have the mirror link technology. I have not yet tested my S5 with it but since but the last time I tried it still would not connect and am unable to install Drive Link for the s5. Frequent emails to Mirrorlink, JVC, Drive link app developers, and Crutchfield have yielded no helpful responses if any at all. In fact Crutchfield was the only one who actually emailed back with any sort of response wanting to help. If anyone would let me know if this product will at least eventually support any new phone properly that would be great. If not I am going to replace it as it has not lived up to its hype.

    Pros: Easy to set up Has bluetooth

    Cons: FM/AM radio GUI is awful

    It is not compatible with the Iphone 5, therefore the use is limited for music and hand free calling, the software has some bugs yet to fix

    Pros: Sound,

    Cons: can not use apps with the iphone 5, icons within the functions are so small that is very difficult to operate while driving

    Screen size good, but in retrospect, will look for 7" size screen next time since I have Note2 phone & much bigger screen would be nice. Sound improved through stock Bose speakers & good visuals on sound shaping features. Installed relay to play DVDs while moving (easy & cheap fix). Rear view camera is viewable w/o putting car in reverse. Smartphone adaptor in a separate module makes for extra work, but for mirror link feature, worth the effort. There is a feature to customize the wallpaper; haven't done it yet, but good to have. Even though this model is discontinued, JVC has same thing available

    Pros: Feature packed, good design

    Cons: Lots of connections in back. Be ready to stuff into typical tight spaces behind receiver.

    Excellent value!

    Very nice head unit. Installation was a breeze in my 2002 Accord coupe. The smartphone control module mounted well in my glove box for easy access if an update should be necessary and Crutchfield shipped everything else I needed to complete the installation.

    The Samsung drivelink application was not compatible with my Galaxy S3 running Android 4.3 and would crash every time it would connect to the HU but the modded Drivelink application found on XDA works great and provided full mirroring capability.

    Even with the stock speakers the sound if far superior to the stock HU and I found the UI very easy to navigate. Blue tooth works excellent just don't forget to plug in the external microphone that ships with the unit and make sure to find an acceptable place to mount it to minimize road noise.

    I have not connected an iPod to the deck yet so I cannot comment much on the apple compatibility, but if you want to view video make sure you purchase the KS-U30 AV cable which is sold separately.

    Unlike other reviewers that have commented my radio signal is superb, during installation my antenna jack wiggled loose and after mounting the unit I had to fully seat the antenna, after that no problems with my signal. I have yet to hear the fan in the unit, I am guessing if it is starving for air in a particular install it would crank up and become louder.

    Overall this unit is a tremendous value for the money and I couldn't be happier! Thank you Crutchfield!

    Pros: Excellent value for the money Lots of features, great sound quality

    Cons: No remote is included the JVC RM-RK252P must be purchased separately. iPod AV cable is not included Drivelink still in its infancy

    Excellent Radio, especially when using an Android phone with Mirror Link. Able to use the functions on the phone directly onto the Head unit.

    Pros: Excellent features such as Mirror Link for android phones- works great with Samsung G3

    Cons: Needed to place the control box (for mirrolink) in another location- not a problem, enough wires and connections, but took some extra time to complete.

    Horrible sound quality. have been wanting to get this radio for months finally saved enough installed it ( Crutchfield said it fit, it fit terribly) played some music. sound was muffled, quiet. Did everything it says in the instructions nothing worked. VERY DISAPPOINTED

    Cons: to much to list

    Iphone 5 At first I had an issue with my wife's Iphone 5 not working via USB as the sound was not coming out. I just wanted the Pandora app working which after changing from IPOD to AV IN it worked (Thanks Crutchfield Tech Support). I did have to reset the Head Unit by pushing the pin hole under the volume nob so I could set up the radio again as AV IN was greyed out and would not let me change it from IPOD mode. Please note that without the Iphone cable you will not be able to send video to the head unit but you will get you album art and pandora fully working.

    Android Mirrorlink Next I needed to get the Applink to work. I installed Auron Full Mirroring Applink and did not have to root my phone (http://www.colmoschinxtreme.com/android). It worked no problems only video via my phone to mirrorlink is slow on the head unit but thats why it has a dvd player. Just remember that you have to click on mirrorlink on the head unit then plug in your Android phone via the micro usb cable for it to work. I did not even try the samsung applink app but that would have probably worked as well but not full mirroring.

    The sound quality This sounds great after adjusting the equalizer to my liking.

    Pros: Lots of features and I love using Waze, Sound Quality, Build Quality and great price.

    Cons: Bluetooth streaming sometimes gets choppy, video playback via your phone is slow.

    Mirror link doesn't work at all. Samsungs drive link app is garbage, and the hacked one still wont allow this headunit to recognize my phone. And the sound from the internal amplifier is garbage, anything at or above a below reasonable level is horribly distorted. Thankfully Crutchfield was excellent about returning it, it only took a minute to complete the phone call for return auth. I am buying a pioneer.

    Pros: Well built

    Cons: Garbage sound quality. Doesnt work with android. Horrible gui.

    Works horrible with iPhone 5. Adapters are a cheap pain for such a loss of functionality and it is constantly coming unplugged. All of the touch panel buttons are positioned in the most painful way. Example, tp and eq buttons are tiny, on the edge of the screen, good luck not hitting them or a giant source button (switching sources, stopping video kids now screaming) pandora: who puts the tiny "like" button right above the tiny skip track button and there is open screen space? Again, good luck getting the right tiny button picked. It does sound good. Just can't get over the button layout thing. And yes I calibrated it a dozen times. They work, just to hard to hit and not other stuff also.

    first off, Crutchfield support was probably the best I've ever had when ordering this. installed in my '03 Ranger with little modification, which Crutchfield supplied instructions for and all the mounting hardware needed. No, I've tried it out for a few months to get a true feel for it. bluetooth works fine, radio works fine, but the drive link (mirror link) does not work with my galaxy S4 so now this radio which I bought is already outdated and is the only thing I'm displeased about.

    Pros: sound quality, bluetooth, touchscreen, response time.

    Cons: drive link does not work with any other samsung phone other than S3. won't work with my S4 which is the main reason I bought this smart phone adapter box is just very inconvenient, now its outdated and the newer models of the nsx don't even require one. wish the onscreen buttons were a bit bigger.

    I installed the JVC KW-NSX1 with not too many problems. Crutchfield support is pretty awesome. They answered my simple questions quickly. As for the JVC receiver, it works. There isn't too much exciting about it. The bluetooth works seemlessly though I do get some clicks/static often. The MirrorLink worked with my Samsung S3 with little fuss. However, again it is nothing to right home about. All in all this JVC is an okay receiver. I'd probably pick a different receiver if I had it to do all over again.

    Pros: All the features work and the sounds quality is definitely better than the factory radio.

    Cons: While on bluetooth there is frequent clicks/static. The Mirrorlink is unexciting and a bit of a pain to maneuver through. Maneuvering through the menu is not easy with big fingers.

    Very good, with one exception

    I'm fairly well pleased with this piece of equipment. The interface is easy to use. The installation was pretty easy, even for a neophyte like me. Just one complaint, which pertains to the way in which the unit displays radio presets. Rather than showing the call letters or frequency, the unit shows the last couple words that scrolled from each station (artist and/or song title). This seems especially stupid to me. Presets ought to identify the station, rather than showing useless info from the last time the station was accessed.

    Pros: See above

    Cons: See above

    This is a VERY nice unit with ALOT of features ! installation was a little more advanced , but if you follow directions its pretty straight forward . I have installed many car stereos and this one was the most complex by far . Let me say here , I added a 4 channel Alpine amp to drive the front and rear speakers , so that added a little more wiring to the project . i also added a 2 channel Rockford Fosgate am to drive 2 Audiobahn 12" subs , with also added more wiring . nothing to complex , just standard hook ups . If you are just replacing the factory unit in your car , its a VERY easy hook up . The Mirrorlink is an easy connect also , however it doesnt "mirror" my phone . I am upgrading my phone soon , so that isnt a big deal . The bluetooth woorks great ! all , features on this unit work extremely well and I was REALLY surprised at the video quality and sound quality from this unit as i have only had Alpine head units in the past .

    Pros: everything works better than expected , VERY nice video and audio quality . Very simple to operate . i would definately recomend this unit to anyone looking to upgrade their factoy head unit .

    Cons: the instruction manual is VERY vague . if you havent installed a car stereo before , you may have a hard time following the install directions . The "mirrorlink" don't work with my phone , do your research to find out if your phone is compatable .

    First off, this is my first JVC head unit. In previous years I ALWAYS avoided them due to past experiences. With that said, they seem to be a much better product now. Fair amount of audio settings, and sounds good. Great variety of audio sources, etc. One thing, that I noticed was mentioned in an early review, the radio reception isn't that good. Granted I don't listen to the radio, if I did, I would be very upset with the price paid for the unit. Aside from that. Well worth the sale price and then some.

    Pros: Nice sound Many audio sources 4v pre amps Clean look Many features

    Cons: Radio reception Glare on screen in the sun Mirrorlink is a bit of a pain CD's take a while to load

    I will be taking a 22 hour drive alone with my two kids next month. I wanted something that will be easy to see my GPS and something to provide entertainment for the kids. (I have a Hyundai Accent 2012 and there is nowhere good to mount my phone). That being said, the main attractions for me: DVD player, Bluetooth, CD player, radio, touch screen, Android integration. I don't really care about sound quality or a rear view backup camera, those are just plusses in my book.

    The unit itself is fairly simple to install. The smart phone adaptor was a pain in the butt. But Crutchfield tech support is WONDERFUL... If you bought this unit anywhere else, you would be SOL. Crutchfield will talk you through it until it's installed correct. The unit has AMAZING sound. The picture quality is OK, but if i wanted top-of-the-line I would have spent at least twice as much.

    The tuner module is ok ... I only get three local stations (I live about 30 miles from NYC and can't get any of those stations) and the interface is a little confusing. I suppose I could get an antenna boost, but if you love to listen to the radio be forewarned before you buy this unit.

    Listen to what other reviewers are saying about the hacked version of Drivelink (look it up on Youtube as Drivelink full mirroring). Also keep in mind that you WILL have to do an update to the smartphone adaptor with an SD card.

    Overall, good value for the price, excellent customer service from Crutchfield.

    Pros: Looks amazing, sound quality is excellent, has all the "bells and whistles", great value

    Cons: Radio signal is WEAK... Can only get two local stations, Mirrorlink is almost useless (unless you have the hack version), smart phone adapter is hard to install.

    Great head unit for the money! I have owned a few dvd-nav units in the past and this one has all the features of bigger, more expensive models. The interface is smooth and fairly easy to use. The touch screen seems to work better than any other unit I've owned. I recommend this unit as a great starter unit.

    Pros: Price... loaded with features.

    Cons: External box for cell phone interface and navigation.

    First the stereo is great, has nice sound and links with my phone right away. I have a Galaxy S4 and the market app Drivelink will not work with it, but if you search the internet you will find the app that has been fixed by an individual and once I installed that the mirrorlink works great. So for those people who haven't been able to use the mirrorlink the solution is out there. But I give a thumbs up for Crutchfield getting my stereo to me in timely manner and great customer support with help on questions I had while installing my stereo. No one has complained when I use the speaker phone so all good there. I have not tried the usb cord not need when I have my phone with everything on it.

    Pros: Looks nice in my car. Has great sound and features. When you turn off the car while you have been listening to music through bluetooth and then get back in it automatically syncs with your phone and starts playing the music from your phone where you left off

    Cons: Mirrorlink will not work with most android phones, which has nothing to do with the stereo but the software and with a little research you can find the app Drivelink on the internet that has all the kinks worked out it. You can't use the stereo main components while hooked in with Mirrorlink but I am not interested in listening to a radio station when I can listen to the music in my collections and still have a full size and up to date gps

    Not so good

    Ease of use is ok at best. When hooked up to your phone in drive link, after you add apps on the phone in drive link app they do not show up on the radio face to use. The antenna does not have a strong signal and when traveling only the closest local stations come in, mainly the religious and talk radio.

    Excellent unit with great features

    This is a great unit, looks good and sounds good. Audio is awesome and adjustable and this is with my factory speakers still in. The Bluetooth works fantastic, both with playing music from my phone as well as making calls, the call quality is good and I haven't heard any complaints on the other end. The DVD player works and sounds great as well. The only thing I'm less than impressed with is the MirrorLink feature. I have the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and it will connect easily with the micro-usb cable. However, if you're looking for something with more functionality with your phone and the ability for full mirroring I would look at some of the higher-end units. This MirrorLink allows you make calls with your phone book,use your gps and nav. system, and play your phone's music just like you would with Bluetooth. Overall I've been very pleased and for a double din touchscreen unit for this price I think it's about as good as it gets.

    Pros: Sound quality is good, easy to use bluetooth and make calls

    Cons: Full mirroring is not what I expected.

    Great Sounding receiver with nice display

    This unit sounds great with an easily tweakable EQ feature. Paired with the right speakers (RMS around 20 watts) the on board amp packs a nice punch with plenty of head room to add an amplified sub to the mix. The display looks great and DVD video reproduction is clean and sharp.

    Pros: Great sound, ease of use, good DVD video reproduction

    Cons: No lighted disc guides, so inserting discs while night driving is a little tricky

    I love this unit. MirrorLink works well; however you have to disable Bluetooth on the unit. I have issues with app but I hope it will improve soon. The only complaint is the USB on the unit is shady. You have to use the right flash drive for it to work properly..not plug and play as I would have liked. Looks good, easy to use, DVD works great. Customizable to a point. Would like to be able to add my car logo on the startup screen. Backup camera works great, the harness and dash kit worked well. I plan to purchase again for another vehicle.

    Shipping was quick and Crutchfield was great (as usual!).

    Pros: Easy to use

    Cons: Shady USB and JVC should add the firmware to work with any phone via the USB connection.

    good product great price
