    Bluetooth Technology: The Boss 460BRGB digital media receiver is equipped with built-in Bluetooth, providing hands-free communication and audio streaming for added convenience and safety in the vehicle.

    • Hands-Free Communication (w/ Integrated Mic): The Boss 460BRGB allows for wireless communication between the head unit and your Bluetooth enabled cell-phone. The head unit will display the caller's information and an audible ring tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker during an incoming call. You can manually answer or end a call through the head unit's front-panel controls. The 460BRGB allows you to carry on the phone conversation using the head unit's integrated microphone and your car audio speakers. Your music will mute automatically during a call. You can make a call using the included remote control's keypad (there is no phonebook transfer).
    • Wireless Audio Streaming: The Boss 460BRGB also allows you to play back stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet, or portable digital music player using a Bluetooth connection. You can control basic music playback functions (Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track) of from the 460BRGB. Advance music navigation and song/artist information will still need to be handled through the Bluetooth mobile device. This unit does not display song/artist information from Bluetooth audio devices.
    Note: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the 460BRGB. Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some mobile devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Boss 460BRGB.

    USB Port: The 460BRGB is equipped with a front-panel USB (type-A) port for connection of a USB mass storage class device, such as a USB thumbdrive or portable digital music player. The unit supports playback of MP3/WMA music files loaded onto a compatible USB msc device. USB portable devices that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the digital media receiver's USB port (0.5A), and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On.

    Note: The unit's USB port is not compatible with Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad or Android smartphones/tablets.

    SD-Card Slot: The Boss digital media receiver features a hidden SD-card slot located behind the unit's detachable faceplate. The 460BRGB supports playback of MP3/WMA music files loaded onto a SD/SDHC memory card (up to 32GB).

    Aux Input: The digital media receiver is fitted with a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of any portable audio player with a 3.5mm headphone output.

    AM/FM Tuner: The Boss 460BRGB features a built-in AM/FM tuner. The 460BRGB features 3 FM banks and 2 AM bank for storing presets (automatically or manually). You can store 6 presets for each AM/FM bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 12 AM presets (total of 30). You can set the built-in AM/FM tuner between US standard and European tuning spacing.

    Audio Section

    4Ch Amplifier: The Boss 460BRGB digital media receiver employs a 50W (peak) x 4ch amplifier.

    4Ch Pre-Outs: The Boss 460BRGB is also fitted with front & rear 2-volt RCA outputs to connect an external amplifier.

    Equalizer: You can choose between 4 preset modes - Pop, Rock, Classic, Flat, or Off.  In addition to the EQ Presets, the 460BRGB offers independent Bass & Treble control.

    Loudness: The Loudness function enhances low and high frequencies to make the sound clearer at lower volumes.

    Display & Remote Features

    Detachable Faceplate: The 460BRGB's's face-plate is detachable to deter theft and comes with a hard plastic face case. A zippered, padded soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can also be purchased to protect the face when removed.

    Variable Color Button Illumination: You can choose Red, Green, Yellow, Blue, Magenta, Cyan, or White for the digital media receiver's front-panel button illumination. You can also choose to have the receiver cycle through all colors. The LCD screen's illumination will remain a bluish white color.

    IR Remote: The Boss 460BRGB includes a 21-button IR remote control for wireless operation of the digital media receiver. The remote even allows you to answer and end Bluetooth phone calls.

    How is the built in mic? Is there an option for an external mic?

    The built in mic is pretty good. I don't use it but when I have it sounds fine. As for the option for an external mic, It is Bluetooth and has an aux so there is probably a way!

    Does the clock display when the unit is off? Does the clock display when the media is playing?
    [ Mark  Mar 04, 2017 ]
    1 answer
    A
    So far, that is probably my biggest complaint with this deck. The clock doesn't display when the unit is off, and it also doesn't display continually. You have to hit a tiny little button to display the time, and then it only displays for a few seconds, then goes back to BT/USB if you're on Bluetooth

    Yes... sometimes. I am not sure if it is just my phone, but when I turn on my car, it only connects and starts playing music about 70-80% of the time, and occasionally cuts off the beginning of songs. For the most part, the product works fine for the price though.
    [ Julius  Feb 10, 2017 ]  Staff

    Yes it will. once you connect via bluetooth the first time, it will automatically connect each time it is turned on and start playing automatically

    Yes, this device will pair with a mobile device for both phone calls and audio playback. Unfortunately the head unit is not able to control the device as some higher end units do, but still great functionality for the price point.
