The Jensen Heavy Duty JHD3630 CD receiver stands up to the tough conditions you encounter every day on the job, including dust, temperature fluctuations, vibration, and humidity. And this rugged receiver offers built-in Bluetooth and the option of satellite radio reception, two features that really come in handy if you spend a lot of time driving. If you take your stereo out of the rig when you're off the job, the receiver's built-in memory stores all your presets and other settings, so you won't waste time finding your favorite radio stations.
Built-in Bluetooth frees up your hands and attention when you take a call, so you can keep your eyes on the road and keep up with business while you're working. Plus, you can stream audio from any smartphone source to the receiver without the clutter of wires. You'll need to purchase an optional external microphone to take advantage of hands-free calling with this receiver.
If you're on the road all the time, nothing beats satellite radio for consistently great entertainment. You can add a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner to this receiver, and tune in an unparalleled variety of news, talk, music, and sports wherever you go. You can also plug your iPod® into the front-panel USB input and get your boots scootin' while you're on the job. The receiver also sports an AM, FM, and Weather Band radio tuner with automatic NOAA weather alerts, plus Radio Broadcast Data Service (RBDS) for traffic condition alerts where available.
Slip in your favorite CDs, including those you've loaded with MP3 and WMA files — a 30-second electronic skip protection buffer keeps the music on track when you're on bumpy roads. The front panel's protective covering keeps out any dust, dirt, and grime, while the conformal coating on the internal circuitry ensures reliability. Front and rear auxiliary inputs let you plug in other audio sources.
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.
Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.
I bought and installed this heavy duty radio for my Jeep Wrangler in summer of 2013. A little over two years later and I still consider it a great investment. I originally decided to give this radio a try because it was virtually the only heavy duty radio available with Bluetooth that didn't look like something from a spaceship. In fact, it blended in perfectly with the dash as if it was a stock component. Install took about an hour and was straight forward. The hardest part was attaching the unit to the rear support bracket. I mainly use the Bluetooth component of the radio for hands-free phone calls and listening to music on my android phone, and I occasionally play a CD. The sound quality is phenomenal when using the Bluetooth functions and above-average when using the CD function. The LCD display, buttons, and knobs are all still working perfect. The CD scanner can be temperamental, sometimes getting stuck in a loop or reading improperly (began occurring roughly three months after install). Navigation of the menus presented an initial learning curve but make a reasonable amount of sense after using them. Switching between different sources is a breeze and the ability to change the backlighting intensity has proven helpful over when driving days and nights. I typically use the radio to control in-call and Bluetooth audio functions because of how straight forward it is, though occasionally the signal doesn't communicate properly with my phone. Unfortunately, th
Pros: -Great sound quality -Multiple inputs and features -Easy to install
Cons: -Expected better build quality for the price -Bluetooth capabilities seem underutilized by design
Easy to install, Great Sound, conservative design not to attract thieves.
Pros: Great Sound, easy installation, Bluetooth easy to use.
Cons: Noah Radio option does not work well with antenna in window.
Love this thing! I looked at every stereo that would fit into my 2011 Ford F250 for days. Kept coming back to this one. I had just put a very inexpensive JVC in my girlfriends car, and was impressed with the sound and features. I just loved the look and the simplicity of the Jensen for my truck. This stereo is at least 3 times the weight of her JVC. Build quality is apparent from the moment you have it in your hand. I found it very simple to install, did it in just a few minutes. Sounds great easy to use. If you like things that are built well, and are not flashy, gimmicky kids stuff, you want this one.
Pros: Well built, not flashy, good color scheme, easy to install and use, sounds great... Believe the others that say that this is a great unit for trucks and other heavy duty applications. Crutchfield support is the best there is. Do not buy electronics from any one else, these guys are the best and know what customer service means!
Pricey but soooo easy to install Great sound and with mic great for calls.
Pros: no harness needed in JD tractor. Great quality.
Cons: should ship with microphone. Had to order separate
Stereo has been installed for a week. Sound quality is excellent, no issues what so ever.
I did a lot of research for a good quality replacement car stereo with features I could use now and in the future. It seems the aftermarket car stereo companies have been lost in the woods for 10 years. Today, the OEM radios offer better, more reliable integration with smart phones than the aftermarket. Flashing controls, constant color changes and meaningless graphic displays are trendy with the younger generation but I find them very annoying, especially for night driving. Jensen Heavy Duty is a completely different product line catering to commercial, marine, industrial and farm vehicles operating in dirty, humid environments and subjected to a lot of vibration. The radio is a Single DIN chassis so it will fit any car, truck, boat, school bus, tractor trailer and piece of farm/industrial equipment with a cab. When the radio arrived I was shocked by the 3.5 pounds it weighs. Most single DIN radios I have bought and installed weigh half that. There is a large external aluminum heat sink running along the left side of the radio to dissipate heat from the amplifier. Power rating is 45W x 4. On the front panel there is a USB port covered with a rubber plug. The Bluetooth is A2DP/AVRCP and it syncs easily with my iPhones and iPads. If you are going to use the handsfree option for taking cell phone calls, order the microphone (JMICHFP).
Pros: Excellent quality and packs a lot of power in a single DIN chassis. Easy to use controls while driving. Bluetooth works well.
Cons: It is heavy and needs a support strap on the back to secure the radio from bouncing in the dash while vehicle is moving. I didn't mind fabricating the strap because the extra weight gave me more power and a better quality radio. Initial set up is slow and tedious. Navigating the screens is not intuitive. Setting up hands free volume, pairing phones, scanning for NOAA weather stations etc. takes a bit of time. Keep the folding User Guide in the glovebox at all times.
This was a replacement for the factory dash radio in our motorhome. It was one of the few on the market that had Weather Band. Which I find extremely helpful and a critical safety item. I have been caught three times in tornados while traveling across county. The Crutchfield staff was helpful with installation choices and filling the order. The old radio was an odd "did" size, and crazy wiring system. Yet they were able to solve what came up. I was limited because of the motorhome dash size and placement of switches and such to mount the radio in the same spot. I did have to find a Ford trim kit to finish it, but could not do that until I had everything in hand. The remote, is for my wife. She is to short to reach the radio when we are on the road. And it is a little scary for me to look down and change a channel. Why the RV industry can not figure that out?? So , trip is coming up, and we will see how it all works out.
Pros: Ease of purchase, on time, on target, and a fair price. Great service from the parts department at Crutchfield. Great sound, no jiggle or stops with CD playing going over bumps. Easy to install. I would recommend this to my RV friends.
Cons: Wish there was a connection to the dash dimmer switch. With the large windows in the RV any light will bounce off the windshield. Old eyes and small buttons don't mix. Old age and "coolness factor"...LOL...redundant silly question...Should just have N/A.
nice radio just takes some time to figure the system out, with all the settings
Pros: good sound & lots of power sound, lots of options f
Cons: Dont really like the color for the back light color of yellow. but works good
This is a great unit. We install these at our Ag machinery dealership in all types of off road machinery including tractors, forage harvesters, forklifts, telescopic handlers, articulated loaders and pretty much anything else with a cab we find. The Bluetooth option makes it a great sale for our commercial operators who don't have to take their eyes off the job to answer their phones.
Pros: Bluetooth Connectivity Universal Applications iPhone Connectivity Vibration Resistance General Durability
Cons: Not the simplest model out there to use but it makes up for it with great features. Plain appearance
Easy to install, looks and sounds great.
Pros: Lots of features.
Love the unit!!! It completely pushes the stock bose system to the max... like being in a different vehicle!!!!
I love everything about this radio. I am a truck driver and I use a different truck everyday so the battery keeps all my presets and info when unhooked. The only thing I was disappointed with is that it's advertised as being able to pause and rewind the satellite radio. It does not have this feature.
Pros: Keeps presets and settings stored for 30 days once disconnected. Large buttons makes easy to use. Weather band comes in handy if you travel a lot.
Cons: No pause or rewind for the satellite radio.
Installed in a 1 ton Dodge Dually with a Cummins, overpowers the engine and all road noise!
Pros: Easy to uinstall with Critchfield kit, Sirius radio installed too, I'm very happy with the unit.
The JHD3630BT is very good for my application. Once you learn the controls, it's easy to navigate. I use this stereo in a portable box application. I drive trucks and I change trucks everyday. The best thing about the stereo for me is when I disconnect the power, it holds the presets for 30 days. That's what inspired me to purchase this unit. I have not tried some of the other features yet, like Bluetooth, but I can say overall for all the features I have used I think it is a very good unit.
Pros: Paired with the Polk db651 speakers makes the radio a very good choice for me.
Cons: I don't like the fact that when I restart the vehicle sometimes you have to set the satellite to another station and back to the previous one.
Good choice for a second vehicle or truck. Installation went well. Needed to pad between bracket and radio for a snug fit, with no rattle. It does what it says it will do, just with some quirks. MP3 player doesn't operate via the controls in a consistent or logical manner. You must hold the volume knob for three seconds to turn the thing off, then it has an annoying, loud beep to tell you it is turning off. If you hold it for less time, it goes into a bass/treble/bal/fade mode - annoying! You can spend a great deal of time hunched over trying to drive while screwing with this thing!
Pros: Decent enough sound and power. About what I expected for the price. Weather band is nice.
Cons: When you restart your vehicle, the MP3 and the Satellite radio do not continue playing where they left off. You must restart your iPod, etc. You must tune the Satellite radio to another channel and back again to get it to start again. Ipod control is difficult, it takes over control of you MP3 player, and the unit's controls are crummy. You have to unplug to gain control of your iPod, start the play, and then plug it in. Need Steering wheel controls.
one of the best radio for a truck drivers....
Awsome head unit i put in my motorhome. Bluetooth is what makes this a wow purchase.
Pros: bluetooth, weather, and great sounding. Even though previous reviewer noted volume concerns i found that in a 31 foot motorhome it is plenty loud with jensen ars 50 ceiling speakers
Cons: Instructions to pair device to bluetooth were impossible to understand. After much searching for a support number they walked me thru the process. Instructions were not difficult they were missing steps to pair. Jensen shold have a support number like Crutchfield.
Great radio in all.
Pros: Easy to learn and use
Cons: Have to turn radio up to 24 to 26 and radio only goes to 32
