Total Traffic Plus — it's not just for major cities
A built-in HD Radio tuner gives you outstanding AM/FM sound quality, but it also gives you a couple of other sweet features. One is that the KW-NT3HDT can tune in the free HD Total Traffic Plus network — you'll enjoy access to real-time traffic that'll help you steer clear of traffic jams anywhere a station is broadcasting HD Radio traffic information. It's not just limited to big cities.
HD Radio's digital technology allows for data transmission more than ten times faster than satellite systems, so the KW-NT3HDT can pull in lots of useful data from digital HD Radio transmissions. Many HD Radio stations broadcast weather, sports scores, gasoline prices, and a whole lot more.

Tag the tunes you like, download them later
And as an added bonus, HD Radio makes it easier for you to stock your music library with tunes you love. With an iPod® or iPhone® connected and an HD Radio station tuned in, you can "tag" the songs you like for purchasing later from the iTunes store.
Easy-to-use GPS navigation
You'll see turn-by-turn directions on the screen and enjoy access to over 6 million points of interest. Text-to-speech technology calls out the name of the street for your next turn, letting you keep your eyes on the road.
You can update your maps through the SD-card slot you can even copy your own points-of-interest from Google Maps on your home computer, then load them onto the KW-NT3HDT using the SD card.
Powerful processor for lightning-fast operation
JVC packs the KW-NT3HD with a powerful, 400 MHz Windows Automotive processor that makes navigation, playing music, tweaking your tone, and anything else a snap. In fact, the GPS is ready to navigate in about 15 seconds after you turn on your car — no more waiting.

Play music from your iPod or iPhone
Just connect your iPod or iPhone to the front USB slot, and you'll be using the receiver's controls to browse your tunes and playlists in no time. JVC's 2-Way Control lets your passengers use the iPod itself to control your music while it's connected to the radio and you'll still see song details on the display.
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.
Hands-free calling, music streaming, even audio from iPhone apps
Built-in Bluetooth® technology lets you make hands-free calls in your vehicle. When a call comes in, the receiver mutes the music and you'll hear the caller over your vehicle's speakers. Mount the included microphone in a convenient spot for maximum sound quality.
Bluetooth is about more than making phone calls, though. You can stream tunes you've loaded on a compatible device, and iPhone users will love this — you can send audio from your apps to the KW-NT3HDT over the Bluetooth connection. For instance, you can run your Pandora® app and listen to it over your speakers.
Note: Bluetooth compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.

The KW-NT3HDT features a detachable face — great security if you park on a city street. Stash the faceplate in the included case to keep it free from scratches.
Music and movies
Watch your favorite DVDs while you're parked, or connect a screen in the back so your passengers can watch while you drive. Load your favorite MP3 and WMA files on a CD, USB drive, or SD card the KW-NT3HDT will play 'em all. Load a DVD full of music files and you'll have enough tunes for a road trip from Boston to San Diego. A powerful amplifier belts out your music and movies, while a 7-band EQ adjusts the sound for your vehicle. Add an optional satellite radio tuner for access to a wealth of entertainment. Three sets of gold-plated preamp outputs let you add amps and subs for a complete car entertainment system.
