Jensen's VX7020 navigation receiver delivers real value, sporting an impressive 6.2" LCD screen that gives you easy command over your audio and video sources. You can also incorporate your phone with hands-free calling and streaming audio capabilities. Add the cost of the stress you'll save by not having to worry about getting lost, and this Jensen becomes a worthy investment.

Take it to the streets

The VX7020 boasts maps of the entire U.S., Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands, plus millions of points of interest for when it's time to take a break. Lane guidance will keep you on the right path for your next maneuver, and you'll be able to see realistic depictions of many complex intersections that make them easier to navigate.

The VX7020's powered by iGO primo navigation software, which has become an industry standard over the past few years because it's fast, accurate, and easy to use. This stereo's compatible with Naviextras, which allows you to download maps for other countries, including points of interest, through their website.

Bluetooth® calling and music streaming

This Jensen offers Bluetooth connectivity, so you'll be able to make and take calls using your compatible phone through the stereo. Built-in A2DP technology allows you to stream music from your smartphone through this receiver, and gives you control over the music on your Android™ phone or iPhone®.

If you've got Pandora Internet radio on your iPhone®, you can control it through the VX7020's interface when connected.

Sonic solutions

This receiver will play all your CDs and DVDs, including discs loaded with music files, while front and rear A/V inputs offer connections for more audio/video sources. Go ahead and load up your iPod® or thumb drive with tunes for your travels — the receiver's front USB port provides convenient access.

When you're parked, you can enjoy movies from DVDs or other video sources on the receiver's display, and you can add Jensen's optional jLinkUSB cable to view iPod video content. Jensen includes a wireless remote control, allowing your passengers to pick the playlist.

Expand your system

Why struggle with stations fading away as you travel? You can hook up a satellite radio tuner (not included) to this receiver and access the wide variety of entertainment, sports, news, and commercial-free music satellite radio provides — your favorite stations are always there and, even better, you can view the channel art on the big screen. You can also connect a rear-view camera, so you can see more of what's behind your vehicle when getting in and out of tight spots. If you're looking to add subs and amps, you can take advantage of front, rear, and subwoofer preamp outputs.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

The Jensen VX7020 offers built-in steering wheel remote compatibility for vehicles with non-CAN bus steering wheel control interfaces, but you will have to hard-wire the steering-wheel control wires of the stereo's harness to your vehicle's wiring. You can configure the steering wheel remote commands from the VX7020's touchscreen. For most cars with CAN bus steering wheel control interfaces, you'll need an adapter to retain steering wheel controls. Check “Details” for more information, and the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters. 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.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Ok let me start out by saying this unit probably don't belong in my 01 ranger but I like it a bunch it does what I want and more and was very easy to install. The advisors really are a big Help these guys and gals are extremely helpful. This is one of many I've purchased from Crutchfield and will continue to buy them there.

    Pros: Very easy to install

    Cons: 0

    Great price & easy to use

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this for my wife's 2006 Ford Explorer and it is way better than I expected. I am a bit of a self-confessed car audio snob and I hate cheap looking or sounding gear in any car I own (even if my wife drives it). The low price made me nervous despite the good reviews here, but I figured it was worth a try and they were totally right! I love everything about this unit so far and would recommend it to anyone. It is much easier to set up than the similar touchscreen Pioneer unit I have in my car. The sound quality is way better than the Kenwood head unit it replaced- for both for the tuner and CD. I'm a huge fan of the volume control knob compared to buttons. Now I want one for my car...

    Pros: It is an amazing value and not just because of the low cost. It is by far the best bang for my buck that I have ever received from a car stereo no matter what the price range. It sounds great and doesn't require a 8 hour block of instruction to figure out how to operate it.

    Cons: Used Dave for the navigation voice and he is a tattle tail. Go one mile per hour over the speed limit and he is nagging you. Shut up Dave. I'm sure this can be turned off, but my wife likes to laugh at me yelling at Dave, so she refuses to let me. Might be considered a pro if installing it in your teenager's car. The only other thing is that I wish it started up faster. I know this is normal for navigation units, but it is still annoying. Especially if you want to use a backup camera.

    Great Unit for Price

    Written By Anthony, Kent, Ohio on Monday, November 02, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This unit is by far the cheapest I could find that included NAV. It works as it should. Never installed this type of thing myself and I did it with the help of Crutchfield in about three hours. By far the best value unit if you're on a budget. Or just cheap.

    Pros: -Very cheap for everything it does. -Easy install. Time consuming if you've never done it, but still very easy to do. -NAV works great. -A lot better sound. Has EQ and it made the stereo in my car 20 times better, and louder. I have a loud exhaust on my car and my stereo barely blocked it out when turned all the way up. This unit I have at about 50% volume and its louder/clearer than my old (stock) one.

    Cons: -Takes a few seconds to boot up. Not a huge deal for me but if you have a backup camera and the first thing you do is back out of your driveway/parking spot, you're gonna have to wait a little. -Not sure if its a setting or anything, but changing between FM stations also takes about 3 seconds. Not instant sound when you change stations, usually a few seconds of silence like it has to load or something.

    It works as advertised

    Written By Pebcak, Texas on Tuesday, October 27, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    We've had the unit installed for two weeks now. This unit has met my almost all of expectations of what I wanted.

    Pros: - It was easy to have installed with no modifications. - The wiring harness that came from Crutchfield DOES work! I was told by other competitors that it would cause a check engine light and audible alerts not to work. - All of the features work as described. - Having all of the extra features is a serious upgrade from the stock radio that was in the vehicle.

    Cons: - Even after the free map update, the GPS isn't as accurate as we'd like. I still have to use Google Maps or Waze for directions. In a pinch this will be sufficient to get "un"lost. This is one of the main reasons we got this device. - The auto volume function when you drive doesn't work. - I cannot see or find any setting for auto dimming/brightening for night/day on the main display. (If someone knows please tell me) It's really bright at night and too dim during the day.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great product for price. I just wish I took the time to note that it did not have maps of Canada. Odd though that it has comprehensive maps of South America. Additional cost was $69 US or $84 Canadian. The deal was not as awesome as once thought. The support from Crutchfield was excellent. My advisor went the extra mile and answered all the questions I had and was kind enough to include all hw needed and create a shopping cart and provide a link to it in his email response. Follow up support questions were answered quickly even though it was on the weekend.

    Pros: The Support is excellent and responses are quick despite time of message sent or phone call. Ease of installation Stereo hw is good for price

    Cons: Additional cost for Canadian map for Navi which hurt a bit as Crutchfield charges a bit more. Wish it would show the album cover and song name on the screen.

    Great product for a great price.

    This unit is very good. Don't assume little money=little quality. Jensen out did themselves

    Pros: Great price, great price, easy to use, high quality

    Cons: Kind of cartoony graphics in the navigation setting

    Great entry level unit!

    Written By David, Ohio on Sunday, October 11, 2015

    First of all, the price is fantastic. It is very difficult to find a quality navigation receiver under $400. Installation was a little tricky (it always seems that there is something missing in the manufacturers directions), but a call to Crutchfield customer service fixed that quickly and easily. Sound is fantastic. Start up is a little on the slow side as is loading of CDs and DVDs (not a deal breaker though). Navigation is wonderful and the responsiveness of the touch-screen is pretty good. Pandora and bluetooth integration is seamless. Only two issues I have is one, when the volume is at zero, there seems to be some humming (perhaps I did not connect something correctly, plus can't notice the humming during play). Second, the volume seems to reset to about 14 every time I turn off the unit, then turn it back on later. But, those two aforementioned issues might be due to my ignorance and not indicative of typical expected performance. Overall, I am very pleased with the purchase and extremely pleased with my experience with Crutchfield customer service.

    Pros: Seamless integration between the phone and head unit regarding Pandora and Bluetooth. Navigation, CD, and radio are excellent. Touch screen performance is very good.

    Jensen VX7020 In 2008 Tacoma

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Bought this to upgrade the Tacoma for rear view camera, blutooth and GPS. Self installed without any issues. Shipping was very quick. Has a lot more features that I will probably not use but the ones I do use work fine. Overall very happy with the purchase.

    Pros: Quick shippment, straight forward installation, looks factory when finished.

    Cons: Getting all the covers off to begin!

    Nice Receiver, but pricier than market price.

    Had a question while installing it, and customer support were nice and friendly, and Awesome! The Device is has a decent sound quality. and nice amplitude.

    Pros: The Device is has a decent sound quality. and nice amplitude.instructions that came along with it helped me decide which accessories to buy with it and instructions for my specific vehicle.

    Cons: I found this same receiver same model available in market for less money. The Accessories kit that i bought seperately werent that nice quality, the mounting screw split the the mounts of that plastic dash, when i screwed it in.

    VX7020 Great So Far

    Written By Mike, North Carolina on Friday, September 11, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great unit for my 2000 Honda Civic. The wiring was simple and straight forward using the supplied instructions. There wasn't much mention about what to do with the E-brake wire, but there's plenty online about it. I had no problems installing and it all worked with no problems whatsoever. The shipping was super fast and Crutchfield is incredible when it comes to helping you out. The sound quality is great in my opinion, and the navigation is perfect so far.

    Pros: Crutchfield is awesome to deal with. Great features for an inexpensive unit.

    Features for price is awesome!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    For the price and the features that the Jensen vx7020 has you can't beat it!!! Bluetooth is easy to set up, navigation is also a breeze to use. This unit replaced the factory BOSE unit for my G35. I had my doubts that it would sound good with the factory speakers but it sounds a lot better with the Jensen. Only main complaint that I have is that during bright daylight hours, the unit is hard to see since the face is not anti-glare. Also the unit seems to lag a slight bit for the touch screen feature but it's not enough to make you want to punch it. Other than that, for the price and features that it has, it was a definite good purchase. Will probably get one for my wife's car.

    Pros: Bluetooth Navigation Touch screen Color customization

    Cons: touch screen not anti-glare can't see screen in bright sunlight slight lag with touch commands

    Me love radio 2 times, 1 time when me buy, 2 time when me hear American hip hop music in car.

    Pros: Pretty to look at, sound makes my ears happy, happy, happy.

    Cons: Too many commercials on radio.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Love the receiver. Even better is the support from Crutchfield. Exactly the right extra parts. Answered all my questions quickly from reviewing other receivers through the installation of this receiver. The entire process took about 1.5 hours and most of that time was wiring the new harness to the receiver. Putting it in the car was a piece of cake.

    Pros: Very intuitive. Connects to my phone quickly and easily.

    Cons: Took a while to find a location for the microphone that worked. That's not a fault of this receiver though.

    Great value. Wanted touch screen with a volume knob because i installed in a convertible and sometimes screen is hard to read in sun and glare.Only problem (and it is "glaring") is that the dim function at night when the lights are on is not very dim and the screen is still very bright.

    If you are the least bit handy with software, when i upgraded the software, it is easy to change the background wall papers from stock to whatever graphic you want. just load your graphic in to the software and save it as thew wallpaper *.jpg name. very simple

    The NAV Map is also very easy to mod, based on Igo software, you can modify the sys,txt file with all sorts of commands to get rid of start up and warning screens, etc. just google IGO navigation for info on this...

    All in, a good value

    Lots of Functionality for the Price

    Written By Jason G, Texas on Monday, August 10, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I installed this receiver in my wife's 2007 F150 as an upgrade to the failing factory CD changer. Installation was fairly straightforward, and the interface is intuitive. It doesn't boast huge power, or tons of features, but I purchased it based on the features listed, reviews on Crutchfield, and compatibility with our Apple products. So far, it has functioned very well across all the paces we've put it through. We took a trip to San Antonio from Austin, and mapped every planned stop. The navigation seemed to pick good routes to each destination, and while negatively reviewed here, we didn't find the lack of vocal street name reading a problem - it's listed very clearly on the screen. All in all, we're pleased with our purchase. I plan to add a back-up camera soon, and will post up an update once it's installed.

    Pros: Nice interface, decent sound, accurate navigation, good quality for the price.

    Cons: Some quirkiness to features that may be solved with more in-depth reading of the instruction manual.

    Very Pleased

    Written By Jay H, Oregon on Monday, August 03, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    It has all the most wanted features at a reasonable price. Installation was quite easy. Looks and works great!

    Pros: Full featured. Works well with my IPhone. Backup camera works well with unit. Looks good in the truck.

    Cons: Perhaps a little better instruction as to connecting the two wiring harnesses together would be helpful. However a few calls to Crutchfield experts solved those problems. The fact that the unit takes a bit of time to get booted up and going when you turn the key takes some getting used to.

    Solid Purchase

    Written By Tom, New York on Friday, July 31, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is a solid entertainment system for your vehicle. I recently bought and installed two for both my 2012 Nissan Versa and my 2007 VW GTI. It works well with both. Wiring was simple. The unit looks nice in both vehicles. GPS works well as well as aux, usb and dvd player. I haven't tried anything with swapping out the memory card for a larger one yet. Between my wife and I, we have two gripes for the unit. The startup volume is set moderately for my vehicle, but she claims is too high for her vehicle. I am not sure if that can be adjusted, but the volume it is left at is not remembered when restarting. My gripe is more with Crutchfield than the unit. I got the steering wheel adapter and it does not match up with the Jensen unit. It was for other brand like Sony and Kenwood. There were little switches to play with and multiple adapters but after a bit of tinkering I was able to get most of my steering wheel buttons to work. For my GTI I was able to hide both the GPS antenna and microphone in vents. My wife didn't want they so they are secured to the dash of her car. The sticky part for the mic isn't very good and if I redid the install I would strip it and put a small piece of command strip in its place. This isn't an expensive unit and it shows. You get what you pay for but if you want a GPS, Bluetooth, dvd unit, backup camera for a bargain this is it! And all these people saying the wiring is tricky or leaves out anything must have not read the instructions very carefully.

    Pros: Price, connectivity, Ease of installation (2 cars), Abundance of personalization.

    Cons: Startup volume.

    When I opened the box I thought OMG this is going to be a pain to install. But then I found out how easy it was. All the features it has for (1) unit is amazing. When in the nav feature it even tells you that u are over the speed limit WOW awesome . I highly recommend this unit for the person that wants everything in 1 unit.

    Pros: Am/fm/cd/DVD/ xm radio/ nav/ and a back up camera in 1 init

    Cons: Wiring lil much to try and hide behind the radio but we got it to fit

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Now I have real aux inputs. Junk oem Ford radio 6 cd player in my Mustang had aux button but no input. Changing display is somewhat annoying. Screen gets washed out a bit in daylight. I have something of a learning curve ahead on the gps. Most basic radio programing and settings are intuitive. Had all necessary install hardware but recommend you have factory schematics for wiring harness. I am a tech by trade but it took me some time to work out the connections to be sure they were correct. Overall I am very pleased with unit and it looks "factory" in my dash.

    Pros: Intuitive basic operation. Manual is comprehensive. All Items for install were provided by knowledgeable Crutchfield rep. Has all connections and inputs you would want. Perfect compatibility with the shaker 500 onboard amps in my car.

    Cons: Screen is a bit difficult to see in bright sunlight. Install wiring is a little tricky. I want to connect backup camera but instructions don't show where to connect reverse wire to car wiring.

    Wonderful unit, Works great, sounds better than the OEM unit, I like the way the presets have the stations listed. bluetooth works well. I got an optional back-up camera, that feature alone is worth the price of admission.

    Pros: Great unit, great price, it dose it all !

    Cons: You have to click on "agree to terms of use" each time you use nav.
