Our take on the Jensen VX3010

by Ken Nail
Jensen

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.

Bluetooth® connectivity and more

Jensen's VX3010 DVD receiver adds capabilities to your car's entertainment system that you just won't find in your stock factory radio. Bluetooth connectivity allows you to take and make calls using your compatible phone through the stereo, all while keeping your hands on the wheel when talking. An outboard microphone lets your callers hear you clearly, even in noisy vehicles. Built-in A2DP technology allows you to stream music from your smartphone through this Jensen without the hassle of plugging in.

Crank the tunes

You'll get more enjoyment from your road trip song selections with Jensen's 10-band equalizer to set the sound the way you want it. And the VX3010 will play nearly any kind of disc, while the front USB input lets you pull songs from your thumb drive, Android phone, iPod®, or iPhone®.

Jensen VX3010

The VX3010's screen motors out to give you the big picture when you're driving.

Multimedia on the highway

The VX3010 fits in many cars that won't accommodate a double-DIN receiver, and it still provides a big 7" screen as a control center for your entertainment. The VX3010 includes front and rear audio/video inputs so you can add on a portable audio player, camcorder, or other video sources.  And for the safety-minded, a dedicated input on the rear panel accepts an optional rear-view camera.

Want to keep your steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with a new car stereo. If you're not sure if you need an adapter, call, chat, or email an Advisor for help determining what you'll need for your vehicle.

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.

    Screen Adjustments: The Jensen VX3010 offers a variety of display adjustments to customize the display.

    • Aspect Ratio Modes: The entire screen is extended horizontally to the aspect ratio of 16:9 in Full Mode. The conventional display image has a 4:3 aspect ratio of horizontal to vertical, leaving a blank area on the right and left sides of the display in Normal Mode.
    • Picture Settings: You can adjust the picture's brightness, contrast, and saturation manually between -10 and +10.
    • Angle Adjustment: You can adjust the monitor's angle for better visibility.

    Secondary LCD Display: In addition to the 7" motorized flip-out monitor the Jensen VX3010 features a secondary 8-character/Segment type LCD display. This display can be used during music playback for track & song information. You will need to use the 7" LCD monitor display for menu functions and to view video.

    Hard-Key Controls: In addition to the unit's LCD touch-panel controls the VX3010 also features hard-key controls on the front of the unit, such as Volume, Audio, Play and Display functions. One of the hard-keys is a 3-way rotary encoder audio control.

    Parking Brake Detection: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the head unit's pink wire must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Jensen VX3010

    Written By Elliott M., Fair lawn, nj on Friday, August 15, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    So to be fair when buying a head unit in the neighborhood of 200 dollars it is good value for money... But not much more. I have an Samsung s4 and the Bluetooth phone is horrible... Scrolling through contacts is not possible and the contacts are all synced to the wrong numbers... Call one friend and get another... Really really annoying. Get past that and the next problem is the unit which boasts how you have have a rear view camera and watch movies is full of it you can only use one feature at a time... So you can't see the rear view camera while playing music and etc. Also I followed the MasterSheet to the letter and the unit would get stuck when the screen came up so I had to put the little pocket on top. Sound quality seems decent but I really cant be a fair judge because I'm in the middle of a full audio rebuild. Generally would say its not bad provided you can make sure the features work but in terms of actually finding the people at Jensen to help it seems impossible because its like they don't exist. But the support at Crutchfield was most helpful and the unit was installed quickly enough.
    Pros:
    Cheap... A lot of features... Convenient.
    Cons:
    You get what you pay for Plasticy. Can't do 2 things at once. Phone is impossible. BT audio won't show what's playing only that there's no video signal... Etc

    Mediocre at best

    Written By Dave C., Richland WA on Friday, June 20, 2014
     
    FM tuner is very sensitive. VERY slow to settle on station in search (AFC lock, I assume) AM very sensitive, probably 75 miles in daytime. CD works as normal, very nice backlight in the CD opening to indicate where to insert the discs. DVD works fine. The fold out touch screen displays an irrelevant image of auto gauges in the background that make the display difficult to read. The image looks like something left over from initial product design that was for demo purposes so viewers didnt just see a blank screen.

    EQ is defective. Hold the touch button to raise a band level and at the top, the level stops and wont go down when pushing the opposite button, have to turn the unit off to reset it.

    Display screen size and resolution are fine for close viewing. The screen slides part way straight out, then rotates up to vertical. Problem is that the screen automatically retracts when the vehicles ignition key is shut off. The screen should NOT go into unexpected motion.

    THIS UNIT DOES NOT FIT IN THE 1990s CHEVY S-10s although Crutchfield says it does. I have a 1995. The display screen hits the shift lever when the lever is in Park.

    The Users Manual does not explain EQ operation.
    Pros:
    The audio amps are very clean, 13 W/ch, lower powered amps naturally have lower noise figures (THD). 13 x 4 is more than enough in a pickup truck cab. The unit draws about 1.9A DC current at low volume levels, thats fairly low current draw. The AC current mainly depends on volume level and speaker impedance. The rotary volume encoder has easy to feel steps and has a wide adjustment range, instead of going only a few clicks and turning the volume way up.
    Cons:
    The display has an image that make the display difficult to read, it looks like something left over from initial product design that was for demo purposes so viewers didnt just see a blank screen. FM preset buttons have a ring that lights to indicate a button press; the beep to confirm is delayed, making the user think the button needs to be pressed harder. Parking brake wire comes out the cabinet in the wrong location, should be with the other power wires.

    Good for the money

    I bought this unit because I wanted a DVD player to watch moves on "while parked" on long road trips. I installed this in my 2012 dodge ram 1500 with ease. I was very impressed with the picture quality and also sound quality. The blue tooth worked well also. I've only had this unit for a couple of days, but I have a feeling that It's a winner. The only unappealing thing is the LCD colors, but how often will you actually be looking at that part of the receiver....
    Pros:
    easy installation, price, picture and sound
    Cons:
    color of dislay

    Great Product for the Price

    Written By EricD, Washington DC on Thursday, May 29, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Installation of the unit was extremely easy. I haven't noticed any real problems with the touchscreen other than you have to be pretty precise when touching buttons or it sometimes won't register the touch - it doesn't have the sensitivity of an iPhone, but then again I didn't have to commit to a 2 year contract to get it for $200, so overall I am very satisfied with the functionality of the touchscreen. The Bluetooth works great when the phone is near the unit - I noticed it would occasionally cut in and out if the phone fell between my legs or the seat - but when connected, the sound quality is great.
    Pros:
    Easy installation, Bluetooth, Great Sound Quality Hands-Free Calling
    Cons:
    No major cons so far

    Can you change the background to something else? [ Damion  Jul 30, 2014 ]
    7 answers
    • Good question . Have not been able to change background either. Sorry I was no help. [ JOSE   Aug 06, 2014 ]
    • I don't think so. I looked through the settings, and didn't see any way to. I would have looked in the the manual, but I have misplaced it. [ Rex   Aug 03, 2014 ]
    • No u can't Would be nice to at least be able to upload ur own image or something. Decent for the money tho [ Derrick   Aug 02, 2014 ]
    • Not that I know of. It's pretty limited as far as visual customization [ Jeremy   Aug 01, 2014 ]
    • No! Just from demo mode is all [ Gregory curtis   Jul 31, 2014 ]
    • The unit works great ! [ CHARLES G   Jul 31, 2014 ]

    I'm wondering what the height, width, and depth of this unit is? [ cole  Jun 14, 2014 ]
    7 answers
    • I believe the specs give the size of the unit. I installed it in a 1996 Chevy truck with not alterations required. [ James   Jun 16, 2014 ]
    • Auxiliary Input impedance: 10k Power Supply: 11 to 16VDC, negative ground Power Antenna (Blue): 500mA max, current limited protection Amplifier Remote (Blue/White): 500mA max, current limited protection Operating Temperature: -20C ~ 65C Fuse: 15-amp, mini ATM DIN chassis dimensions: 7" X 7" X 2" (178mm x 178mm x 50mm) Got this from the manual on Jensen website [ Derrick   Jun 15, 2014 ]
    • I don't have the demensions, those should be available in the details on line. Mine fit nicely into the factory slot in my 92 Dodge truck. One problem you need to be aware of however is interference with what is located above the radio on the dash. My Dodge has climate control levers sticking out far enough so the screen of the Jenson could not open and stand up vertically. I had to build an adapter that makes the radio stand further out from the dash so the screen can open all the way. [ Charles   Jun 15, 2014 ]
    • although I can't answer with precision, since it is already in my dash. I can say that it is a standard half DIN height and standard width. I put it in the same place (using the same adapter kit) as my previous Kenwood. When the screen comes out, it of course takes up more visible real estate in your vehicle. and if there are vents (and anything else) located above the area of the radio, it will be blocked. As for the depth it did not look unusually deep. On top of that, It actually protrudes out from the dash about a half inch, which it must, so that the screen mechanism can position itself correctly. I will be reviewing this radio soon. [ Rex   Jun 15, 2014 ]
    • I'm not exactly sure about the measurements but I would not buy this radio I had it for a month and returned it the bluetooth feature was horrible it would sound like a skipping CD the United would lagg it was supper slow when it would turn on save up a little more money and get something better [ jesse   Jun 15, 2014 ]
    • Product Dimensions: 10.5 x 10.5 x 6.5 inches; 6.5 pounds [ James Anthony   Jun 15, 2014 ]
    • Check the spec info. [ CHARLES G   Jun 15, 2014 ]

    Hey I'm using this unit and was wondering if you have a bypass code of any to bypass the dvd playing functions while driving without using hand break? Thank you [ Serega  May 05, 2014 ]
    1 answer
    • Parking Brake Detection: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the head unit's pink wire must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged. [ Krissy Staff  May 05, 2014 ]
