Boss BN965BLC navigation receiver

See things clearly on a 6.5" screen

The BN965BLC sports a big, beautiful monitor, so you can see the included maps of the United States (except Hawaii) and Puerto Rico with ease. And you'll have millions of points of interest to choose from when it's time for a break from the road. Pull up audio and video sources through the touchscreen, including digital files stored on USB drives or SD cards, streaming audio from your smartphone, a wired portable MP3 player, and good old-fashioned CDs and DVDs.

Included rear-view camera

The 6.5" screen also comes in handy for viewing images from Boss's rear-view camera, which comes with a license-plate mount. The image engages automatically when you shift into reverse, or you can access the camera's view through the stereo's touchscreen. You'll be able to see nearby car bumpers and other hazards lurking in blind spots. Once you're out of reverse, the stereo's display will revert to its previous screen. The BN965BLC includes a dedicated camera input and all the wiring required for installation.

Leading the way

Not only does the receiver provide accurate guidance, it helps you with text-to-speech voice prompts, which announce actual street names at turns. You'll hear "turn right on Montague Street," instead of "take the next right."  Lane guidance ensures you'll be in the correct position for your next turn, and you'll see 3D renderings of select buildings and landmarks for more assurance.

Hands-free calling and music streaming with Bluetooth®

Boss includes Bluetooth connectivity with the BN965BLC, so you'll be able to make and take calls using your compatible phone through the stereo. You can talk right through the built-in mic on the front panel, so your callers will hear you clearly. You can stream music from your smartphone, and control basic playback functions with the receiver's touchscreen.

Connections galore

The receiver's front-panel slot accommodates your SD card loaded with tunes, while the front aux in works with portable devices. A front USB input makes it easy to connect a thumb drive full of music, or you can jack a satellite radio tuner or other device into the rear audio/video input. A composite A/V output lets you send movies or other video content to external video monitors, so you can keep the backseat crew entertained. A full complement of preamp outputs includes a dedicated subwoofer out with low-pass filter.

You'll need a wired connection to your parking brake to access settings and other features on this receiver. Your parking brake must be connected and set in order to view video on its screen.

Installation Note: The included backup cam has a 21-inch video cable, but Boss includes a 16-1/2 foot power/video extension cable. Please measure your vehicle, and call us if you don't think that will be long enough.

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.

    Touchscreen + Remote Features

    6.5" LCD Touchscreen: Boss BN965BLC navigation receiver features a fixed 6.5" widescreen touchscreen LCD monitor. The screen has a resolution of 800 RGB x 480 with 1,152,000 total pixels. This unit has touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics, making menu navigation easy.

    • Wallpaper/Backgrounds: You can choose from 5 preset wallpaper/backgrounds.
    • Clock & Date: You can set and display the date & time.
    • Backlight Brightness: You can adjust the LCD touchscreen monitor's brightness for day and nighttime viewing.
    Note: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in LCD screen as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the light green wire (attached to rear-chassis) must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged.

    Start Up Time: The Boss BN965BLC has a start up time of approximately 8.3 seconds from Off to an AV Source screen, and a start up time of 21.7 seconds from Off to the Navigation Map screen.

    Hard-Key Controls: In addition to the unit's LCD touchscreen controls, the BN965BLC also features hard-key controls on the left edge of the screen (including a 3-way rotary audio control).

    IR Remote: The Boss BN965BLC includes a 36-button IR remote control for complete wireless operation of the navigation receiver.

    Note: The receiver is not compatible with vehicle steering wheel controls.

    Onboard Navigation

    NDrive Navigation Software: The Boss BN965BLC contains map coverage of the United States (except Hawaii), Virgin Islands, & Puerto Rico with over a million points-of-interest from TomTom; all stored on the pre-installed 8GB microSD card. The BN965BLC employs NDrive software for turn-by-turn visual and voice guidance to your selected destination. The software quickly calculates step-by-step directions to any destination available on the included on-screen navigation map.

    Note: While the receiver's map database was judged to be as accurate as possible at the time of its release, a map database can never be 100% accurate. Road information that is maintained in the map databases, such as turn restrictions or road names may change over time.

    Map Updates: NDrive offers periodic updates (purchase fees will apply) for data such as roads, new addresses, and other navigational information that will keep the Boss navigation system up to date and provide the best possible experience. For updates and add-on options, please visit NDrive.com.

    GPS Receiver & Antenna: The Boss BN965BLC features a built-in GPS receiver and includes an external GPS antenna which determines vehicle speed and heading changes, along with longitude and latitude information, to accurately determine vehicle heading and position on the system's digital map. The GPS antenna can be mounted inside or outside of the vehicle.

    Note: The navigation receiver took approximately 57.1 seconds to calculate directions from Charlottesville, Virginia to Los Angeles, California. It only took 23.7 seconds to calculate directions from Virginia to Baltimore, Maryland. These tests were done inside the Crutchfield Lab of the Crutchfield Headquarters. Results will vary based on length of calculated route and your surrounding area.

    2D or 3D Map: The unit's on-screen 2D or 3D map shows your vehicle's current position (a Green arrow), the recommended route (a violet line), the surrounding map area, and your destination (checkered flag). The on-screen map shows streets, roads, and highways in a way that is similar to how a paper road map displays them. A road's width and colors corresponds to their importance, so you can easily tell a freeway from a small street. When navigating a route, the top section of the map screen shows information about your next route maneuver and the next street. When approaching a turn, the map screen will zoom in and raise the view angle to let you easily recognize your maneuver at the next junction. If the next turn is at a distance, it will zoom out and lower the view angle to be flat so you can see the road in front of you. The map also displays data; such as the posted speed limit, your current speed, current time, distance to your destination, time left before you reach your destination, and your arrival time.

    Lane Information & Signposts: The Boss BN965BLC's navigation map offers helpful lane information and signpost guidance

    • Lane Information: When navigation on multilane roads, it is important to take the appropriate lane in order to follow the recommended route. If lane information is available in the map data, the map screen will display the lanes and their directions using small arrows at the bottom of the map. High lighted arrows represent the lanes you need to take.
    • Signposts: Where additional information is available, signposts substitute arrows. Signposts are displayed at the top of the map. The color and style of the signposts are similar to the real ones you can see above the road or by the roadside, They show the available destinations and the number of the road the lane leads to.

    Voice Guidance w/ Text-To-Speech: In addition to graphic directions, the BN965BLC provides voice guidance with text-to-speech. You'll get turn-by-turn instructions with the announcement of street names. You can select from English, French, or Spanish languages.

    Destination Search: You are able to select a destination by touching an area on the map screen, entering an address, choosing a POI, picking a saved Favorite, or choosing from your recent History.

    • Browse Map: Select a point on the map for your destination by touching the screen.
    • Address: Enter a full address or a part of an address; you can enter Country, State, Town, and or Street.
    • POIs: Search millions of POIs (points-of interest) near you current location, in a city, within a postcode, or around a set of coordinates.
    • Favorites (Home): You can save your favorite addresses (like Home & Work) and POIs for quicker access the next time you are traveling.
    • History: The places that you have set as destinations in the past are automatically stored for easier access.
    • Itinerary: You can select from saved Itineraries and Waypoints.

    Routing Options: You can choose how the head unit's navigation system calculates your route by selecting Fastest or Shortest. You can also indicate if you want to use or avoid Toll roads.

    Preview Route: Once the unit has calculated the route to your destination, you can preview the turn-by-turn instructions, view the map route, and simulate travel along the route.

    Route Alternatives: The NDrive navigation software gives you the option to calculate an alternative route, place a roadblock (if for any reason a part of the route is blocked), avoid part of the route (due to traffic or other info), or re-calculate the original route if you made any changes.

    Safety Alerts: The unit's navigation software features visual & audible safety alerts.

    • Speed Limit Alarm: An audible alarm will ring when you exceed the speed limit which you configure; you may choose to turn this feature off.
    • Road Speed Alert: The unit will display and announce the speed limit of the roadway you are driving (when applicable).

    what version maps will come with it?

    Hi, thank you for your question. The Boss BN965BLC receiver uses NDrive Navigation Software. The maps will be pre-loaded onto the 8GB SD card that will come with the receiver. We can not guarantee that the maps on that card will be fully up-to-date, however NDrive offers periodic updates (purchase fees will apply) for data such as roads, new addresses, and other navigational information that will keep the Boss navigation system up to date and provide the best possible experience. You may log onto NDrive.com, For updates and add-on options. Hope this helps. Chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695, they will be happy to answer any additional questions.

    [ Carl  May 23, 2019 ]

    It depends on the angle of the dash face that it will go into. I have a Toyota Yaris (sedan) in which the dash faces upward at about a 20-degree angle from vertical and it is right under the windshield. I made a sun shield out of thin PVC to shade the display when the sun angle coming in through the window is such that it shines directly on the unit. This seemed to work out fine for me. There are two things I don't really like about this unit that I will pass on to you, however. 1) the GPS nav system is by N-Drive and the microSD card that stores the maps can only be updated from a Windows PC. I have a Mac, so I'm out of luck. Also the N-drive navigation isn't as good as Garmin by a long shot. 2) the USB port on the front is supposed to play MP3 audio files from a thumb drive. I've only been able to get the unit to recognize the first first file on the drive and it will play only that one file in a continuous loop. So that feature that I really wanted is totally useless to me. It does play music from a cell phone or MP3 player if you use the 3.5 mm stereo aux jack. The radio is pretty good, but I've yet to figure out how to save various stations. The menu is not designed very well either. I plan to replace this unit with an Android car stereo which I believe will solve the issues I have with this unit.

    No subscription needed - the GPS signal comes from satellites circling the earth and are picked up by this device. No phone needed either. This unit will pick up satellites easily, but it works even better if you get a GPS antenna and connect to the GPS antenna port in the back of the unit.
    [ SCOTT H  May 03, 2019 ]
    A
    No subscription or phone is needed. There are preloaded maps and the system has an integrated GPS to know where you are in relation to the map. They only cost is if you want to buy updated versions of the maps because unlike google, they are static. That means that you when road patterns change in an area due to construction your maps will be out-of-date. I havent found this to be an issue yet though.

    In Crutchfield product description page for this receiver, find the Does it Fit your car? option to find even if your car is listed, if not, I would be avoiding purchasing, unless you, or you know someone who can install it for you. I looked and I could not find 2004 Ford F150 Super Crew Cab listed. When I purchased for my Camry, I had to buy the cradle as well, along with some other adapters (ex: vol/track control through streeing wheel).

    I put this same unit in my Chevy Trailblazer. Perfect installation using the additional vehicle wire harness adapter to preserve the factory vehicle functions. All of that went really well. However I am completely disappointed with the performance of the BOSS for sound quality and the touch screen being over sensitive. I have bought car audio from Crutchfield for over 15 years and will continue to do so. But I do not recommend the BOSS unit.

    Hi Ernie,, I don't think the camera needs to be hooked up the the rear lights. I didn't install the camera because it is designed to be attached to the license plate frame and on my vehicle that just gives me a view of the back of my bike rack. The unit does go to a back up camera screen when I shift to reverse and It says no signal detected because the camera is not plugged in. It also has an additional AV input for a camera or whatever. The camera does require power though so the back up lights would be a good choice. I put the GPS antenna on the dash up against the windshield and it has worked fine. I have a Dodge Caravan and I don't think the supplied cable was long enough to make it to the back where you usually see the GPS antenna.
    [ Eric  Apr 11, 2018 ]

    The back up camera connects to the rear back up light wire. On my Subaru it was a simple connection. The GPS antenna attached to a metal bar in the dash behind the radio on my Subaru and the reception is fine. No need to run it through the roof. Again it was a easy connection.
    [ JS  Apr 10, 2018 ]

    You will need to connect it to the rear lights for power. The provided cables to connect to the stereo itself are video only. Which is the reason I haven't gotten around to installing mine yet. The antenna for navigation can stay on your dash. It is a tiny 'box'. I used a 3M adhesive strip to hold it in place on my dash above the radio. As long as you have it forward enough, closer to the windshield, it should have plenty line-of-site.
    [ Christopher-Michael  Apr 08, 2018 ]
    A
    If you hook the back-up camera to the rear lights, that is when it will start getting power. Personally, I found some accessory power and just switch the unit to camera mode when I need it. I did so that way I could use the camera when towing or off-roading and be able to check out what's behind me when I'm not in reverse. For the GPS antenna, I put it on the drivers side, as far forward as possible, on the roof. Then I pulled the molding on the windshield, ran it down to the door where there was a hole large enough to get from the outside of the windshield to the inside of the door frame, then it went under the dash and to the unit. Once the molding was put back into place everything was sealed up nicely.

You can either use that wire or run your own separately with an RCA cable and a separate single wire to connect to the reverse light which can be tapped at the tail light cluster. The provided RCA with attached reverse light wire lead is limited to the length provided so pick an optimal path and/or purchase a video RCA (single yellow) and run a separate wire with it to the rear of the vehicle. There are many ways to do different things, but I did the following with the install. 1. Grounded the parking/brake light from the harness to the metal frame of the unit so video would play for passenger while driving. 2. At the camera I tapped the towing harness for switched power when the vehicle is running for power (red) so you could view the backup camera if video is selected at the console. I hope this helps and that I remembered correctly. I installed it for a friend a while back.

    On the product description page, lookup your car model through Does it Fit you car? feature. If it's listed, it should work. Note that you may need to buy additional adapters (EX. Vol/track control through steering wheel).

I think most of the higher end units can do this. You'll need to install a HDMI cable into the back of the unit, then connnect your phone to an adapter that fits into the HDMI cable.

    99% sure it's Capacitive. I accidentally change the station all the time when I'm not looking and grabbing the volume knob. Still the best unit for the price! In station mode (the default view) you can gently touch presets at the bottom of the screen or scroll through the bar lengthwise on the upper top of face. I hate resistive screens and I really don't think this is one.

    I just installed this in one of our vehicles a few weeks ago. This was a surprise to me. You can manually dim the screen but it is not automatic from what I have found. Also the maps do not have a night mode either unless it's a hidden setting.
