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.

    Jensen VX7020

    Written By RobB, Bangor, Maine on Thursday, May 21, 2015

    Install went fairly easy, except for the fact that Crutchfield did not enclose the installation kit. I had to call, and spoke with tech support and they shipped me out a kit immediately. The remote that was shipped had a dead battery with it. Randomly, the unit will shut itself off and then the saved radio stations are gone which is a pain to set up. The radio itself does not find local stations like it should, you actually have to manually search for what any factory radio would find automatically. And yes the antenna is plugged in. I think the sound quality would be good if I replace my cheap factory speakers. Pandora sounds better than the radio due to digital signal I guess. Lately, when I start the car the lights on the deck come on and the progress bar gets stuck and does not allow the unit to turn on, so I have to turn it off and then back on and then it will usually snap out of it. Very disappointed with that. The navigation seems to work well, haven't used it too much to know for sure. I know the price was cheap on this unit for what it does, but I am not real happy with it overall. Get what you pay for I guess. Now I guess I will attempt to upgrade my speakers in hopes that it will be more enjoyable.

    Pros: shipping was quick, tech support offered to fix issue immediately and were very knowledgeable and nice.

    Cons: The radio tuning function is not very sensitive in auto find mode, and the mainual search is very difficult to do while driving. The unit sometimes does not power up without holding the button down several times. The touch screen gui interface is not user friendly. I would not recommend this product!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This radio was installed in my 2006 F150. Overall the radio is what I expected. It has great sound and volume, fits well in the dash panel and is pretty intuitive to operate. The radio takes a few seconds to boot up on start up which can be an issue if you are in a hurry particularly if you have a back up camera attached. Not a huge problem for me, but it may be to some people. The navigation works well and instructions are adequate and timely. Crutchfield supplied all the necessary, wiring, connectors and instructions necessary to make the installation go as smoothly as possible. The only real issue that I had with the installation was the interface between the PAC unit and the radio. The biggest installation issues I had were between the software update and the PAC unit. I got the update in the unit with no problem, but when I installed and programmed the PAC unit and go the steering wheel controls to operate, the volume would not turn on when the vehicle was keyed on. I would have to tweek the volume, either up or down to get sound. With Crutchfield's assistance and with several iterations of trials I decided to just return the PAC unit and no use the steering wheel controls.

    Pros: Intuitive usage. good navigation. Good sound and volume.

    Cons: Steering wheel interface. Hard to see the screen in bright sunlight.

    Dissapointed In Crutchfield

    Written By Bruce, Humboldt, CA on Friday, May 15, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Paid more than I would have at another online retailer for Crutchfields "Tech Support". Crutchfield's $9.95 MasterSheet was a joke..6 or 8 sheets of pics with skimpy instructions. Crutchfield MasterSheet showed a guy prying away with a screw driver from the top. Youtube showed the correct way to take out old head from the bottom...but it was too late, I cracked fascia, and damaged soft vinyl around it, even with the correct pry tools...Support said yes it is quite hard to remove and plastic gets old and brittle...but it was too late. Think twice before buying into Crutchfield's DYS BS.... and inaccurate instructions.

    Pros: No waiting for Tech support.

    Cons: Inaccurate, superficial "MasterSheet" ....No warning about old brittle plastic, difficulty of disassembling, parts that were not made to be disassembled.

    Easy Installation

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Just installed yesterday. Parts and instructions from Crutchfield and reading other reviews / comments were a big help. Go slow, read and it all went smooth! Radio so far is awesome ... replaced factory ford radio and much better sound. Bluetooth works great (I installed the microphone by drilling a small hole in a dash "Blank spot". GPS Antenna works just fine attached to a metal frame just above the radio, yet hidden under the dashboard. Now I am thinking I will add a camera after all!

    Pros: Very easy to install with instructions and supplies via Crutchfield. Take a moment and read user manual ... volume at start up is explained and CAN be set. Free Update for GPS data went smooth on desktop pc. Looks Great - sounds great ... all features work as expected.

    Cons: non yet!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Overall a great product. I would have given it 5 stars if the GPS maps were up to date. I've used the free update and still find some missing roads and POIs that should be in the database. I'm working with Tom Tom to solve the problem, but no luck so far.

    Pros: Great price for all the features!

    Cons: Wiring is a real challenge if you're not an expert.

    Written By cNme, Wisconsin on Friday, May 08, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The radio was an easy install. It works very well. The navigation is spot on and is the latest map. One free download of the map products with the option to update the map in the future. I like the display of the screen. It is bright enough except in direct sunlight. However my $700 Pioneer head unit also washes out in direct sunlight. It has excellent volume range to drive my aftermarket speakers without the extra amp. I certainly annoy the drivers in the next lane when the volume is turned up. It is a really good product and I would buy it again.

    Pros: Easy to install. Decent volume range, with or without the amp. Free map update upon purchase.

    Cons: The map uses the SD slot and this unit doesn't have a separate slot for music. The USB in the front of the unit blocks the volume knob if you have a large memory stick. I prefer the USB wire supplied with my Pioneer which can be mounted anywhere in the front. However, that required cutting and modifying.

    Great value. Very satisfied.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Bought a Jensen VX7020 for our truck. Liked it so much I bought a second one for our car. I think that says it all.

    Pros: Looks great, sounds great. Lots of features, intuitive menus, fantastic navigation system.

    Cons: Better FM sensitivity would be nice. I live in a more rural area and the station reception is a little weak.

    Tip: Regarding Steering wheel controls

    Written By DavidH, Cookeville, TN on Sunday, May 03, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is a great unit for it's value for my standard 2012 Dodge Durango. The only problem I had was trying to get the steering wheel controls (SWC). For my vehicle, the PAC RP4-CH11 did not work with regards to the steering wheel controls. However, I was able to get my steering wheel controls working with the PAC SWI-CP5. It might be cheaper to get the PAC C2R-CHY4 + PAC SWI-CP5. I even tried the Axxess ASWC-1, which did not work. Being stubborn, I spent hours with tech support with Jensen, PAC, Axxess and Crutchfield. I can't praise the tech support of Crutchfield enough. They bent over backwards trying to help me in every possible way. The PAC tech support was great also. Jensen was (to me) kinda neutral, but at least they tried to listen to me and get me to a point where I needed a voltage meter to test my wiring. At that point I was desperate and decided to try the PAC SWI-CP5 which worked!

    Obviously, there are so many variables involved in troubleshooting steering wheel controls. This Jensen unit requires you to go through the 'Learn' configuration on the unit itself to map the steering wheel controls. The main head unit brands like Clarion, Sony, Pioneer, etc. don't have to deal with a 'Learn' process like this Jensen unit has, but they cost more than this unit.

    Back-up camera & SirusXM work great. I like the Pandora app on the unit, but if you want to stream other apps (iHeartRadio), you have to use the bluetooth A2DP streaming. Screen is not as bright in direct sun.

    Pros: Great value. Sound is great quality. Has most of the main features I think anyone wants. Love the Pandora app. The SirusXM app also shows the channel logo on the screen. Navigation app works great, and comes with a free update. I agree probably with most of the other reviews 'pros' mentioned in here.

    Cons: To get my steering wheel controls working, it was time-consuming. Read my review for details on how it was tricky to get the SWC to work on my 2012 Dodge Durango. The screen display is probably not bright enough as I wish, in direct sunlight. Perhaps due to a screen protector that minimizes smudging? Doesn't have an iHeartRadio app, but you can still stream any audio using bluetooth's A2DP. To licence other apps like iHeartRadio would probably increase the price of the unit, so it's a tradeoff.

    Great features for the price

    Written By DW, California on Sunday, May 03, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've been using the 7020 unit now for a month now and am mostly satisfied with it. Installed it in a 2013 Honda Fit; there was plenty of room behind the unit for the rather numerous wires and harnesses that needed to be connected. In addition to the normal hookups, I also installed an XM receiver, steering wheel controller and, a backup camera. It looks great in my FIT and I find it easy to use and move through the menus. A few things that I might be able to pass along (software version 1.53). The unit boots up at a preset volume however, can be changed to another setting. Adjust the volume to the level that you want and immediately hold down the volume button for about 2~3 seconds. That will be the new boot up volume. I noticed that it did not have as good reception on the FM channels as the old radio so I ran a ground from car chassis to the back of the unit (on the heat sink), it improved somewhat. The Nav "Accept" screen that pops up every time you select the navigation can be suppressed. The NaviExtras toolbox gives you an ominous warning that you may corrupt the Nav SD card if you try to update it. A quick call to Crutchfield and talking to a tech revealed that it was a bogus warning and just to proceed anyway. Worked great and got the free update; thanks Crutchfield! The numerous other things you just need to find in the settings and adjust them.

    Pros: Probably the most functionality for the price, looks good in my FIT and, has a decent number of features. If you're looking for a nav unit like this and this is you price range then you may be hard pressed to find much else with all of these bells and whistles and I would recommend it. The extras you get from Crutchfield make it a professional looking and easy install.

    Cons: The sound quality is average at best. The navigation has some really, really good features but, my experiences so far with the navigation routing have been absolutely horrible, it takes you all over creation. The updated database is woefully out of date with old speed limits and road routes. It has the potential to be great but falls short in its most important function, navigating. I can only hope these things get addressed in a future update because it detracts from an otherwise good unit.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased this unit along with the PAC and XM receiver unit to hook it up to a 2006 Silverado with the Bose system. With a couple of calls to Crutchfield, which were more of the double check/confirmation variety, the install went without a hitch. The unit itself has all the features advertised and the instruction manual is easy to understand. No complaints with the features. I hid the nav antenna under the dash pad on a solid piece of metal framing so that I didn't have to install it on top of the dash or on the roof. The nav signal is perfect even in that location. I installed the hands free microphone at the top of the A-pillar running the wire down the pillar and through the dash. Also, if you have a factor SiriusXM antenna on the roof, you can hook into it instead of using the receiver that comes with the SIrius unit, making that a clean install as well. And of course a big thanks for Crutchfield.

    Pros: Easy Install. Features work as advertised.

    Cons: None that I can think of.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This unit has a very nice display and the touch screen and volume knob have a high quality feel. Navigation works great so far and the antenna sufficiently obtains a signal while mounted to the top of the unit. I absolutely Love that the Pandora app in the head unit pulls the album art from my Android Nexus 5 without plugging anything in.

    I'm a bit disappointed that the steering wheel controls have yet to work with my car despite trying multiple things (still need to contact Crutchfield to get this corrected). Also, I've noticed when streaming music via bluetooth the sound cuts in and out maybe once every couple of minutes. Just a quick skip almost like a skipping CD. I assume it's a problem with the head unit and not my phone given that my phone streams music via bluetooth flawlessly on my Kenwood deck in another car and also via a wireless boombox in my house. Finally it's really dumb the volume always comes on at the same (very loud) level. The player should remember the user volume setting when the vehicle is shut off and start there next time the vehicle is started.

    Pros: * High quality display * Intuitive menu * High quality touch screen action and volume knob * Excellent nav software * Price * Pandora album art is pulled from Android phone while streaming via bluetooth

    Cons: * Bluetooth streaming music skips once every couple of minutes * Volume comes on at same high level whenever car is shut off even if it is turned all the way down * Steering wheel controls don't work yet

    Excellent product for budget conscious individual

    This unit has been in my Toyota matrix 2010 for 2 months now. I drive atleast 40+ plus miles a day mon-fri so I've gotten pretty aquantied with this Jensen unit fairly quickly, and even those it tho it has its drawbacks you certainly cannot beat the features and aesthetics that this unit brings for the price.

    As others have mentioned, if you were to ask someone how much they think the unit costs; the answer is always $500 or more. I say that to say it will definitely update your dash and give you that new tech feeling with out breaking the bank.

    The bluetooth is pretty clear and connect very fast, which surprises me sometimes still.

    I love the equalizer it just has made a world of difference while riding on my daily commute, the biggest surprise I would say has been how much I use Pandora now... AND I love it

    The GPS... well it does leave features to be desired I won't rehash what others have stated (Street names, latency). But for me it does what I need, and I actually am content with what it does; for the price I paid. Won't drag this on much longer... Buy if you want a touch screen double din in your vehicle with GPS and Bluetooth that looks great. Be aware that the gps does not use Street names.

    Pros: *bluetooth is crystal clear *sound improved my stock speakers *Pandora works flawlessly with my android

    Cons: *GPS lacking features that should have been easily included *remote control supplied kinda hard to use while driving *only 4 wallpapers

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I had the 7020x imstalled in a 2005 Camry along with a Tao backup camera. The pair work very well together. I feel like the car is now in the 21st century. The Navi works very well. At first, the trip function gave turn warnings too late but we were able to readjust the prewarning function. Bluetooth is a great feature and works well with both my wife's and my iPhones. Hands free talk function is automatic and functions well. Sound is decent and the logic is user friendly. Love the 3D graphic view.

    The install shopped warned us that not all our steering column controls might work with this unit. But the guy got volume and track advance buttons to function. The only one which did not function is the mode button...not a big deal. One annoying thing is that each start of the car requires that you read and accept the warning before using the navi..probably some federal law.

    Pros: User friendly, good sound, great graphics.

    settings question

    Written By brian, Texas on Monday, March 30, 2015

    Love the stereo...great value! But I can't figure out one issue. I think you'd call it Programmable Turn-On Volume. It seems all of a sudden the turn on volume is too loud so I am trying without success to figure out how it got adjusted upward and how to re-adjust the volume to a lower level with the car/stereo is restarted. Any help is appreciated.

    Great option for aftermarket system

    Written By Rlabell, Coatesville, PA on Sunday, March 29, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I love this new system. It was replacing a broken factory system in my 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The only problem is the rear camera already in my vehicle is not compatible with this radio so I lost the rear camera. The touch screen is great and I like being able to connect my phone via Bluetooth. I had Best Buy install the unit. They forgot to remove the screws from the unit so I thought the CD/DVD player was broke but a quick call to Audiovox helped me fix the issue. Lots of power on the receiver. I have factory installed Boston Accoustics speakers and they can't handle the wattage this unit can give.

    Pros: Touchscreen, Bluetooth, navigation system, DVD for use when parked.

    Cons: Lost rear camera functionality, pandora app only connects to Android phones but I can stream on my iPhone via the USB port.

    AM Does NOT Work - Metra Kit Harness Does NOT Work

    Written By Big Bear, Ohio on Wednesday, March 25, 2015

    Most functions on this radio work very well: FM, CD, Nav, SXM Interface. The USB interface is bad - it's like windows folders - yuk. The AM radio does not work. The Metra Kit Connector is terrible - the male connection pins are too thin and too narrow to properly interface with the female radio harness connector. Every bump in the road will intermittantly disconnect wiring to lighting dimmer wire, speaker wires, power supply, ground, etc. Let's just call it the Metra kit an absolute train wreck. If you've already bought this and have these problems buy the Schose connector. Also if you get a constant buzz or crackle take the thicker black wire with white stripe on the Schose connector (external amp ground lead), crimp on an eyelet connector and take it to chassis ground or a screw on the metal back side of the radio. And gee... why did I pay the extra money to buy this from Crutchfield? Because they used to have great connection kits and they used to take care of problems. And before you think oh this guy doesn't know what he's talking about I installed hundred of car stereos back in the 70's when I was a kid. Since then your Uncle Sam taught me how to wire aircraft and I earned and Associates Degree in Avionics Technology and a Bachelors Degree in Industrial Technology. But you don't need that much education to realize that a Metra Kit Connector is a piece of junk. Crutchfield are you listening to your customers? I don't think so.

    Pros: Good FM, Good CD, Good Nav, Good Blu Tooth for phone. But the bad really outweighs the good > Crutchfield please ditch Metra kits.

    Cons: AM Radio DOES NOT WORK. The Metra Kit Connector is absolute junk. Very disappointed with Crutchfield, it used to be a great company. When I called to discuss problems the tech had no response to my comments about the Metra Kit Connector's pins being too narrow and too thin to make good connections. He did recommend the Schoshe connector which I had to buy elsewhere. Tech did not offer me a refund for the piece of junk Metra Kit Connector.

    Crutchfield response on Monday, March 30, 2015 Thanks for taking the time to submit your review. Our Tech Support team has a suggestion that might help with the AM radio reception. They'll be reaching out to you. As for the Metra harness, we have used this particular harness for years without any problems. We have refunded the cost of the Metra piece since you chose to get the Scosche harness. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any further issues with the stereo.

    Highly recommend

    Super feature set. A little annoyed at the boot time. Jeez people, maybe I'm an old curmudgeon but it's a freakin radio... why does it have to 'boot' like a computer but I guess they all do now.

    Pros: Great features. Excellent EQ options, sub out, camera inputs, USB interface, updatable GPS

    Cons: Screen is unviewable when the sun hits it. But I suspect that's true of any touch screen unit, so you have to think about it going in if you're going touch screen.

    Pretty good for the price.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Very high Bang for Buck

    Pros: Price, Naviextras.com Data base, and fairly simple to use.

    Cons: Need to buy an anti-glare shield if you use it when the sun is out. Needs option to display current time on Nav display. Current/displayed TOD not derived from GPS. Mount Baker Hwy speed limit not 50; it is 55. Unable to correct speed limit data base error. Makes speed limit warning unreliable.

    Great Value

    The unit itself is sleek and fits perfectly. I wish it was matte black instead of the shine. All the features work great. I love the Pandora connectivity on it. The GPS works great but I do need to get the update on the maps.

    Pros: Easy install, user friendly.

    Cons: glare from the sun tends to wash out the screen, and makes it hard to see.

    Not bad for the price.

    I installed the Jensen VX7020 on my 2010 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X King Cab. It was my first time installing a aftermarket radio and it wasn't too hard. The unit works really good, I like the way it looks, and the navigation is nice to have. My only real complaint with the product is you can't bluetooth pandora unless you have a android (I have a iPhone 5S) and I cannot change songs when i stream music from my phone; Other than that it really makes me enjoy my truck more and if I could do it again I would still choose the Jensen because of the price.

    Pros: Looks good, Nav works perfectly, Good price

    Cons: Hard to stream music with iPhone

    Upgraded my 2007 Ford Expedition and has proven to be a major improvement from the stock unit. The installation was much easier than anticipated with a complete install done in 45 minutes! The navigation update took longer than the actual install.

    Pros: Looks like a factory unit---back lights are programmable to match instrument illumination. Free navigation upgrade from the internet (make sure to have a micro SD available and ready for your computer). I live in a new development which the update included. Very economical compared to other available units. Quick customer service from Crutchfield. Much more power, and customizable with the very easy to use integrated EQ!

    Cons: The ONLY reason I won't rate this unit a "5" is because of the lag powering up the unit. I'm slowly getting use to being halfway down the street before the unit comes on, often startling me with a loud/sudden volume of music. This might also hinder the back-up camera feature a bit useless. The instruction did not include the code required for pairing my iPhone, however Crutchfield supplied one in less than two minutes of being on the phone.

    Great product for a good price! Purchased the unit as a gift to my wife for her 2001 Chevrolet Suburban. As noted by Crutchfield the unit is not designed to fit, but with a little custom work on a mounting bracket and some minor remolding to the trim, it fits great. Also added a backup camera and a rear monitor for the kids to watch movies on road trips. Installation did take a little bit of research locating wiring diagrams and such to correctly wire the parking brake and reverse light switches into place. However, in a vehicle that was designed for this type of unit I don't think it would have been as much of an issue. Overall, great product at a great price that worked exactly as is advertised. Also, you have 90 days within activating the unit to update the stock maps to the most current ones at no cost.

    Pros: A lot of features, great price, flexibility to make additions later.

    Cons: None

    Best value for the $ on the market. Had a few technical issues relative to the software but due to Excellent support from Crutchfield staff all were quickly resolved. The unit looks and operates well. If you can think of it you can probably make the unit do it. Custom lighting options allow you to make it look like the rest of your panel. You can configure the nav display in many different ways to display what you want when going to a destination or when no destination is selected, time left to go, distance, arrival time, current time, speed, speed limit. And even visual or aural warnings about exceeding speed limits, etc. really almost too many options to list, sound is really good, awesome when engaging the optimal equalizer. Very user friendly and intuitive controls. Looks good works even better. Easy install with Crutchfield kits.

    Pros: Best value on the market. Many configuration options from operational controls to color and display options. Excellent support from Crutchfield and Jensen

    Cons: Nav software update provider contact is only through email, made better by Jensen support

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Very satisfied with the unit for the money spent. It replaced a stock Ford AM/FM/single CD factory unit in a 2014 F250 XLT. The sound is much crisper and louder than the factory unit. I also ordered a Maestro control module and wiring harness so that I could use the factory steering wheel controls. I also opted for the Sirius/XM module, as I already had an Onyx satellite radio that I was removing and could transfer the subscription from. The install was pretty straighforward, except it took a little time to splice the 11 or 12 wires from the Jensen harness to the Maestro harness for steering wheel controls and to plug into the factory sound system harness. I didn't want to cut into any factory wiring, and didn't have to. Although it's not mentioned in the Ford instructions, I had to cut the rearmost ears off of the plastic mounting brackets that attach to the side of the unit. Otherwise there's no possible way it's going into the recess deep enough to mount. I'm very well satisfied with the quality of the unit for the money spent. Yes, you can find it cheaper elsewhere. But chances are good that you won't be able to pick up the phone to get almost immediate tech help if you run into any trouble spots during the install or operation after the install like you will at Crutchfield. That was worth a few more dollars to me. I'm no pro, but the install looks near factory with the kit provided by Crutchfield.

    Pros:  Crutchfield chat set me up with everything I needed when I explained the application and what my goals were.  Tech support easily steered me in the right direction with my one minor wiring issue during the install.  Like the size/design/colors of the touch screen. Easy to navigate menus.

    Cons:  It took a Jensen rep to explain how to fix a clock issue. Crutchfield rep suggested a firmware update but sent me a link to outdated firmware that was older than what was factory installed on the unit.  Some issues I tried to address from the operator's manual, but some sections were not specific enough.  Not really a con, but can be purchased many places cheaper. Crutchfield's rapid tech support when I needed it negates any price premium.  Map updates were a pain. They need Mac suppo

    Crutchfield response on Tuesday, February 10, 2015 Thanks for the kind words in your review, and also for the info about the firmware update. That's the most recent update that Jensen has published on their site. Apparently, the receiver is running the most up-to-date firmware available. We'll update our information about the firmware link being outdated.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Only installed a few days. Install was not bad, but some technical information was incorrect. Installed in a chev colorado 2007, tech says modifications to bracket ! True, but modification is nothing to do with truck, it was the universal plastic bracket, with five different sets of tabs on it, for multiple vehicles. Modification was a matter of removing some of the plastic tabs off the mounting bracket kit ! Asked if I can use existing xm antenna and not use xm antenna from oem radio, tech said yes/ false. Antenna of radio is a GPS antenna, not an xm antenna. Overall this is a cheap level GPS unit. Worse part is how weak the screen display is with sunglare from sides. Had to build a sunshade for mine. Without sunglare the screen is nice. Clock display is only on music display screens, and not on GPS screen. To change things, you almost always hit back to MENU screen to go to another level screen. Sound volume to me, is more then I will ever use with four speaker in my truck. It is rated half of the radio wattage it replaced, and no complaints at all for this point. My use is mostly xm, usb, and gps mods. Changing sound mods, does change for each function. But a volume screen for each mod is available to make some sound level adjustments, so when changing mods, the volume will be close to same level output. Gave it three stars over four stars, because of the sunglare washout ! Not to spend twice the price to upgrade, it is a good radio with some conditions

    Pros: Very good sound, GPS does work fairly well so far. This is with gps antenna sitting on dash too. Screen view at nite is nice.

    Cons: Sunglare does wash out the screen, like a $75 tom tom unit. Most time the menu screen has to be used to change things or mod. Clock does not display in GPS mod.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The unit performs as advertised and was easy to install. The Crutchfield team hooked me up with the correct installation gear, which made the job that much easier. It's a little slow to startup, and the navigation screen is a little slow, which is why I gave it 4 stars vs. 5. The only 'surprise' was I couldn't play a movie because the vehicle's OEM wiring harness does not have a lead for the Parking Brake. Once again, the Crutchfield tech was able to look up which wire from the brake sensor (above the e-brake pedal) was the right one to tap into and I was able to splice into it and run it to the brake sensor wire on the Unit's wiring harness. The touch screen performance is acceptable. Radio reception is good as well, Only complaint is the RDS text is really small so it's not easily readable while driving. It does not stand out, so if you don't know the unit has that feature you probably will not see it.

    Pros: inexpensive (not cheap). Easy to install.

    Cons: Small RDS text. Slow to turn on. Navigation is slow. Maps are difficult to update.

    I'm giving this head unit 5 stars because it has performed exceptionally well over the past 8 months I have owned it. At first I was scared because it was half the price of a lot of DVD receivers and this Jensen still has GPS! The unit is in my 1999 Toyota Tacoma and had definitely added tons of capacity to the sound of the truck. The GPS works great with tons of l nice features, Bluetooth and hands free also work like a dream. I have not experienced any problems with pandora or really any part of the system at all. Crutchfield did and amazing job with making sure you have all the necessary parts and wires and instructions. Wiring was a breeze and there was no permanent modifications or adapters needed to insta it. It almost looks factory in the dash other than the difference in the matte and gloss finishes. The touch screen isn't as crisp as you'd say on like an iPhone or most smart phones but gets the job done well. Grounding the parking brake wire to watch videos was also easy as I found a ground on the driver side kick panel. All my buddies love riding with me no me that I have a stereo that produced sound MUCH better than stock and I also have my playstation in it.

    Pros: Great price, good features, great sound/tuning, nice fit/finish, and rhat you're able to receive if from crutch field because they gave me much more confidence in my first head unit purchase and install.

    Cons: For $350... None, buy it

    Excellent value and performance. I opted for the sirus/xm option. Replacing the stock head unit in my GMC Canyon it went together easier than was expected (Crutchfield warned I would have to modify a bracket but it slipped right in) I'm a Samsung fan so I'm a little disappointed with the limited android integration all though the hands free works perfectly and is better than I expected. Pandora is the only android function so if my wife's phone costs me too much data, I guess I'll have to get her an iphone, cause this receiver rocks. Ran it for a month on its own power and was way better than stock, then added a 5 channel amp and sub, now I just have to worry about someone killing the battery. 5* for sure...you can't beat this unit for the money.

    Pros: GPS is rock solid in the sticks and in the city. System control is excellent, radio reception excellent, dvd/c playback is excelent, hands free excellent.

    Cons: Pandora is laggy, no android file system. Not Cons except I had to call to figure it out: The volume control can be programed to come on at any desired level, the book doesn't explain this, so till I figured it out it was turning up my 600 watts halfway everytime I turned it on. (Press and hold the volume for three seconds sets it to current level)...dvd brake lead is looking for ground...gps software update Incorrectly reports that you shutdown the unit wrong just ignore it once and it works.

    This is a very good system for the price. I originally thought I could install it myself, but it was not like installing a stereo in a car back in the '80s. I wanted to keep my Ford Sync and steering wheel controls. I had a professional install it for a reasonable price. I am still experimenting with all the settings to get what I want, but am very happy with it. The free navigation update that came with it was easy to install. Bluetooth pairing with my Android was simple. I also enjoy the Pandora connectivity. I did not connect my backup camera to the system as that was already connected to my rear view mirror. As far as the faceplate, Milan Maple is the darker color and was a perfect match to my Ford Lariat.

    Pros: This is a great system.

    Cons: If possible, an anti-glare touch screen.

    This unit replaced a stock radio in a 2012 Toyota Camry. My father wanted in car GPS and was tired of fiddling with the portable Garmin he had. The installation was easy enough, however I was not able to get the steering wheel controls to work. I do plan on trying again, but for now it's not a big deal. The interface is nice and responsive, clear, and easy to follow. There are plenty of connections and I plan on installing a back up camera at a later date. One of my favorite features is the Pandora app that takes over control from the phone. Lastly, the speakers sound excellent and the EQ features are perfect for what my father needs.

    The radio is nice and does it's job well. I've yet to learn to turn off the FM radio when i am using the navigation. The radio will stop when the navigator speaks but I would prefer to turn off the radio completely. It's most likely my fault that I can't find the "off" buttons (yet). I have trouble with the radio trip which I will review in a separate review.

    Pros: Nice radio etc.

    Cons: 1. The mounting (Toyota Sienna Van) protrudes out from the radio and I couldn't get the little door open to remove and reload the first free map without clipping the hinges. 2. The display tilt's back due to the dash leaning back. This gives me glare in the daytime. 3. The navigator is also not very bright. That may be the fault of the camera.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Installed this in an 09 Dodge Ram. Anyone wanting to use this unit in this vehicle needs to know that modifying the sub dash is needed. Crutchfield tells you this. However, for me it was very time consuming and frustrating. I ended up CARFULLY using a hacksaw to cut the metal plate on each side and then rolling the metal edge (top bar and bottom bar) away to get clearance. That was easy and solved the fit problem (should have thought of this first). Radio is great! I have had no problems with it. It was as advertised and sounds great. I do not have steering wheels controls so I can not comment on that. It's not as fancy as the factory unit in my Explorer but the Jensen is loaded with options for the money. I'm very satisfied and would recommend this unit to those who do not wish to pay $600 plus for a high end unit.

    Pros: Nice display, very customizable, works well with my iPhone 5, great DVD picture, gps is accurate, equalizer is nice, sound is good.

    Cons: I read the other reviews before purchasing so I knew the little things others had issues with. The single issue I have with this unit is when listening to satellite radio your memory presets are 2 clicks away then you only see a few at a time and have to scroll. It would be nice if you could see some presets from the main Sirius/XM screen. I have not found a way to customize this.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I might rate this unit higher later, but have only had it in for about a week now, and am still learning how to use it. As always the tech support at Crutchfield made researching, purchasing, and installing this unit a rewarding experience. Lots of Q&A leading up to the selection, then some key advice during install. I don't have the factory JBL unit, or steering wheel controls, so had to go with the harness requiring assembly, and it was real straightforward - color to color and labeling. I used the factory mounts along with the Metra installation mounts (the face plate needs them), and got a much more solid result. The additional screws provided were relatively useless, other than to hold the plastic Metra mounts in place until the factory metal mounts went on. The Sirius XM install and activation worked as advertised. Still in process of updating navigation with the Naviextras people, while waiting on a SD to SD micro adapter. Fit and finish match just right. Everything worked first time it was powered up. I just have the antennas sitting in the corners of the dash at windshield (nav on left, xm on right). It's going to take some time to fully learn and appreciate the unit, but right away the control over sound with the equalizer options, and bluetooth are noticeable improvements over factory. I did not have navigation before, so will not complain about any of the features associated with that, but have already found ways to adjust settings others complained of.

    Pros: Great price for the package. Noticeable sound improvement, control, and on screen graphics for iPod. Great fit and solid installation. Very pleased that with careful attention to installation instructions and tech support it worked in all aspects, and did not require any troubleshooting.

    Cons: Nothing significant.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Installed 7020 in my 2005 Chevy Silverado. Installation was easy and neat. No cutting or modifying my dash. I had read a couple of install warnings and it appeared I would have to cut the rear support to install this unit, not true. I put the rubber mount on the rear of the unit and it slid right into the original radio spot in the dash. I installed the included dash kit and put the factory dash trim back on and was amazed how nice it fit. It looks like it came that way from the factory, no gaps and did not need the included filler piece. I bought the RP5 gm11 harness which kept my steering wheel controls. There was a lot of wires and the RP5 box to get behind the radio but it all fit no problem. I added the Sirius receiver to the head unit, another box that had to go behind the radio. The factory satellite antenna does not plug into the Sirius receiver and there is not adapter. I did not remove my factory antenna to replace it with the antenna that came with the Sirius receiver. I used the antenna that came with the Sirius receiver. I mounted it behind the radio and zip tied it to the AC duct and it works just fine. The GPS antenna plugs into the back of the head unit and I also mounted this antenna on the AC duct and it works just fine.

    Pros: very impressed as to how it mounted and looks in the dash, looks as close to factory as it can be. Sound quality is very good. Touch screen is easy to use. For the price you can't do any better.

    Cons: No big cons just a few things I wish it did. GPS doesn't say the names of the streets, just tells you which way to turn. When Using the GPS and on the radio screen, you have to manually switch back to the GPS screen to see what's happening when a turn is announced. It would be nice if the GPS screen would pop up automatically when a turn is about to happen. There is no clock on the GPS screen. Bluetooth works fine and easy to pair. Incoming calls are a bit loud even when vol is turned down.

    This is a terrific head unit. I installed it into a 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche using a CRUX SOOGM-15 wiring interface recommended by Crutchfield and everything works well including all the steering wheel controls of volume, seek, source and program. Touchscreen is clear, sharp and bright and is very responsive to your touch. I wired the pink wire to ground so that DVD would play without applying the emergency brake. Instructions are good and clear for wiring to the CRUX. Sound is loud and robust. DVD CD playback is good, radio and bluetooth work well. Navigation is gorgeous, user friendly and accurate and backup camera displays well. The only drawback is that it takes about 10 seconds for the unit to boot up after you start the car. I used an American International dash kit and it looks like a factory installed unit. However my biggest compliment goes to Crutchfield. I called them a few times for technical support and they were always responsive. No hold time. English speaking. Knowledgeable. Very helpful in wiring the Jensen and CRUX. Additionally, they were very helpfuI in resolving a problem I had with the first unit I received. Everything worked except for the navigation. A call to Crutchfield technical concluded that the Jensen nav was defective. They express mailed me another unit and it arrived in two days on Saturday morning. I transferred the dash mounting kit to the new unit and plugged in the CRUX and voila, EVERYTHING WORKED! WHOOPEE.

    Pros: Everything, Great Value!

    Cons: The only drawback is that it takes about 10 seconds for the unit to boot up after you start the car.
