Bluetooth® connectivity and more

Jensen's VX3020 DVD receiver adds capabilities to your car's audio system that you won't find with 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 3-band equalizer to set the sound the way you want it. And the VX3020 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®.

Multimedia on the highway

The VX3020 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 accommodates 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 this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

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.

    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.

    All I want is a dimmer. That's all, and this thing would have 5 stars. Why would they make a head unit without a dimmer??? I suggest spending a little more money and getting a higher end unit if you can afford it.

    Pros: Easy to install. Easy to use. Sound is quality for the price. It's solid in its brackets, there's no give and it feels right when I press buttons.

    Cons: Bluetooth cuts in and out sometimes (not very often). The microphone is absolute garbage. THE DIMMER! There is none. It really needs a display dimmer.

    Excellent price

    Good value, does what it needs to do. Cheesy display graphics that can't be changed. No ability to turn off display for night driving.

    Love Crutchfield support though! Kit worked fine. Less than an hour to install, start to finish.

    Pros: Good value on a double din, touchscreen Bluetooth unit. Good sound quality. Easy to use.

    Cons: Low grade graphics, no ability to dim or turn off display for night driving.

    I bought this for my 2003 Subaru WRX to replace the factory head unit, and I have to say I am very please with it the sound quality is 100 times better with just the stock speakers in it and it fits perfectly just like Crutchfield said it would, I would definitely recommend it, it works perfectly, well worth the money.

    Cons: there are not really any customizable features and the deck

    Good value. Provides everything you could need in an after market radio. I matched it to a backup camera and It provides a nice view. It does tend to lag when it is activation mode but it works well.

    Pros: Provided the USB and phone jack connections on the front. Great price!

    Cons: A little lag when switching in menu mode. I have to reset the random setting every time the signal gets interrupted by a phone call.

    Android users... If your music 'skips' while using Bluetooth, go to Jensenmobile website, search for VX3020, go to Download tab and download the 'Bluetooth/Android Update to a flashdrive then follow directions. It works. Installed in my 05 Ford F150 XLT.

    Pros: Backup camera.

    Cons: Takes about 10+ seconds to completely power on. Can't change the background.

    NEEDS SOME IMPROVEMENT

    I bought this receiver to replace the BOSE factory one came with my Nissan 350Z. I have always despised the performance and sound quality of that sound system so anything would be an improvement. The most important aspect of the replacement receiver was going to be the sound quality of the CD player. The additional features of a DVD player, BlueTooth adaptability, etc., were nice but secondary. First off, the power of this receiver is minimal so you need additional amplification. The sound quality is good but not great; the graphic equalizer function is a real plus. However the product lacks some basic features that are standard with most car stereo receivers and the lack thereof really affects the "ease of use": 1) You cannot fast forward or rewind during the playing of a CD track; if I want to advance to or go back in a song, I cannot. 2). You can't easily go back to the beginning of a track; if you use the "back" function, it goes to the previous song, not to the beginning of the one your are listening to. These two annoying aspects of this Jensen receiver need to be fixed in future models.

    Pros: Very versatile: CD/DVD player, BlueTooth adaptability, multiple inputs for other devices. The graphic equalizer really allows you to craft the sound you want to hear.

    Cons: The poor design of the "back" and "forward" functions on the CD player is very annoying.

    This unit essentially has all of the main hardware of a much more expensive unit where you essentially pay for software. For the price of the model you get all of the same functionality of more expensive models. Sound quality is great compared to some other more expensive models and the graphic equalizer helps a lot as well. I could point out all of the tings it cannot do, but i should point out everything it does do for the better price. aside from some connectivity issues with the bluetooth, and a less intuitive user interface, this unit has good value.

This unit essentially has all of the main hardware of a much more expensive unit where you essentially pay for software. For the price of the model you get all of the same functionality of more expensive models.

    Cons: it is not as refined as the more expensive models. customization in appearance is null, song data on bluetooth does not display but these are all minimal differences. the major differences i found were - less reliability with the bluetooth, it does not automatically connect as well, and it cuts out for fractions of a second randomly -

    Great product for the money. It does everything that they say it will do. Especially like the built in equalizer function.

    Pros: Connects with my iPod via the USB port. Connects with my Android via Bluetooth. And just a quick push of a button to switch between the two while streaming my music. The ease in connecting was easy and straight forward. I only needed to use the Metra wiring kit. The mounting brackets and screws from the factory stereo fit on the new stereo.

    Cons: The touch screen is a bit iffy. Sometimes I need to warm my fingers, before it will register. The Bluetooth music stream is a bit choppy, but that problem must exist with my Galaxy S4, because my IPhone music stream sounds great.

    I would have expected to pay more for a radio like this. It has what I was looking for and was pretty simple to install, thanks to Crutchfield's instructions.

    Pros: Touch screen with big icons; camera port availability; Bluetooth and USB; very accessible buttons and screens

    Cons: I would like a more colorful screen display.

    love it, the EQ could be more variable tho

    As with other reviews, the responsiveness of the screen is dodgy. Sometimes a single press is sufficient, sometimes it takes a few. Sound quality is fine, decent EQ customization. The Bluetooth microphone seems to do OK after some fine tuning, the Bluetooth streaming however is spotty for me. I'm not sure how much is my phone (documented Bluetooth streaming issues) and how much is the unit. Will need to test with another device.

    Pros: Touchscreen with higher end features without the higher end price tag.

    Cons: General lack of responsiveness on touchscreen

    I've been using the VX3020 for a couple of weeks. Good sound and quality. One of the problems I have with this unit is a loud Pop when changing stations or sources with the preamp outputs; I have not tried connecting the speakers directly. The other is that it skips some radio stations when seeking, even on Distance, these stations can be entered manually and they sound ok without any noise. Hopefully some of the problems could be fixed with a firmware upgrade which one is already out for Bluetooth on Android.

    Pros: Good sound, EQ options. Bluetooth streaming. iPod integration. SWC without an adapter. Upgradable firmware.

    Cons: A bit slow interface, sometimes unresponsive, you need to hit menu to restore the touch screen. Skips weak radio stations when seeking, even on DX. Loud pop on preamp out when changing stations/sources. Audio shuts with rear view camera (luckily not on a Bluetooth call). Video noise with jLink ipod cable. Low volume on Bluetooth mic. Only 1 background.

    Great deal

    I spend a lot of time in my car, therefore I wanted to upgrade from my standard deck to something that would allow me to stream music from my phone, and had hands free as I am always on my phone. While this product does offer those features, the quality is poor. When streaming music from my S4 via BT, it is clear the connection is weak even with the phone directly in front of the deck. The music will play, yet it is constantly stoping and starting as if it were a record skipping.

    The quality of the microphone isnt the best, everyone always asks me if I am in my car which means it picks up a lot of back ground noise. There for I cannot use this feature unless all the windows are up (obviously), and I am traveling less than 35 mph

    Pros: Upgrade from a standard deck with BT & hands free

    Cons: The quality of those extra features is poor to the point I dont even use them.

    Fits vehicle very well, and easy to install. The touch screen is a little sluggish, because they use the older and less expensive pressure technology. Not as many features as the pricier models. Though this receiver has options that some of the higher end models do not have. Bluetooth works well. The radio reception is better than OE receiver. Makes the old stock speaker sound better. Back up camera ready, and DVD player with several A/V outputs.

    Pros: Looks great. Fits well in Toyota truck. Great for the price.

    Cons: Must be patient with touch screen. DVD player requires parking brake ground , and directions do not make this clear or provide necessary wiring.

    I bought this unit to add bluetooth and backup video to my 2012 Jeep Liberty. Installation was pretty straight forward and simple using a Maestro. The Bluetooth calling feature works well, but the sound quality of the microphone isnt great. The stereo starts up slow, so I can't just jump in the car and expect the backup camera to work right away. I am usually out of my driveway before the video is up.

    Pros: Low price for a good feature set.

    Cons: Slow start up. Bluetooth microphone isn't that great.

    Went with a Jensen for the first time after 8 installations (been installing over 15 years) of Pioneer/Sony/Kenwood/Alpine and I am EXTREMELY happy with my radio. Easy to use, sync,program,fine tune to your liking. Bluetooth plays perfect, phone works through the speakers; even powers the speakers well for a head unit.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: none yet

    I honestly would have rated the unit higher had I been more impressed with the bluetooth and Jensen's customer service. The stereo sounds great. The equalizer does a really good job of making the most out of the music that you put into it. The remote didn't work out of the box, but I never use those things anyway, so no points deducted there. The touch screen was not very responsive. I tried recalibrating it but it seemed like it only responded after hitting the on screen button more than once on occasion. The display is fixed and there are no options for customization that I could find. The real hit to this unit came when I upgraded my phone from a Galaxy S3 to an S5. The bluetooth worked well with the S3 with the occasional pause in the music which was bearable for a unit at this price point. When I got my S5 the music continually skipped like I had put a bad CD in. Jensen's customer service was very quick to say that it was a Samsung problem and that I would have to call them. Samsung stayed on the phone with me for over an hour resetting the phone and emptying caches but nothing would seem to work. (I tried a Soundstream unit as well with my S5 and it worked well over bluetooth) Ultimately I would say it's a solid unit for the price, but if you have an S5 and want it to do bluetooth, it may not be the right unit. I'm definitely glad that Crutchfield has the 60 day guarantee. They were very helpful trying to troubleshoot the bluetooth issue as well.

    Pros: Good sound connected and over bluetooth (when it works) Good picture with DVD playback Great sound control with the multiple band equalizer Good volume control (no quick jumps) It works well at low and high volumes

    Cons: Touchscreen is not very responsive Unit takes a while to boot up Jensen's customer service wasn't the best Not a lot of display customization Bluetooth doesn't seem to want to work with Galaxy S5

    Nice product.

    So far, most of what I read in the other reviews has been correct. For the price this is a nice stereo. The touch screen is much like a GPS unit, not quite as good as a tablet computer. It is a little slow to start up, but not that bad. Normally going by the time I take off driving. The DVD quality is good and the sound is just what I needed. In my opinion a great purchase for the money. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Pros: Ease of install. Good sound and video quality, fits nicely.

    Cons: The only con is that grounding wire for the DVD player.
