If you're looking for a new car stereo when you're on a budget, you may think a touchscreen receiver is out of reach. Boss's BV755B DVD receiver offers a pleasant counterpoint to your expectations. Its 6.2" display features easy-to-use controls for your sources, plus built-in Bluetooth® enables hands-free calling and wireless audio streaming from your smartphone. And even better — Boss backs up your investment with a 3-year warranty.
With Bluetooth, you'll enjoy all the content on your smartphone — stored music, streaming services like Pandora and Spotify, podcasts, and audiobooks. Android™ or iPhone®, it's yours to enjoy through wireless streaming. Plus you can take and make calls while keeping your hands on the wheel — an awesome safety feature when you're making your daily commute. Boss built in a sensitive Bluetooth microphone for your calls, located on the receiver's faceplate for a simpler installation.
When your car is parked, you can use 6.2" screen to view video content from DVDs, SD™ cards, or USB thumb drives. If you want to take your show on the road, connect video screens to the receiver's video outputs and keep your backseat passengers entertained. And with an optional rear-view camera (not included), you can use your new in-dash display to help back into those tight parking spots.
Play music back from DVDs or CDs, or load up a USB drive or SD card with your digital music, plug them in and let them play for hours. Use the front auxiliary input to connect a portable player. For sound shaping, this Boss includes an 8-band EQ, and to get more impact out of your system, three sets of preamp outputs let you connect amplifiers to power your speakers.
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.

Average Customer Review(s):
Quality Stereo for the price.
I love this stereo! I installed it in my Wrangler, which has the Infinity speaker system, and it has blown me away. There was a slight wiring harness issue, but it may have been an operator error. Whatever the cause, Crutchfield sent out a new head unit and harness so I could get it fixed quickly and painlessly. Just send them back the other one. Ended up not even having to take the new head unit out of the box. Just replaced the harness and away I went! Thanks Crutchfield, you earned a customer for life.
Pros: Price, ease of installation, quality, excellent customer and tech services
Crutchfield provides a great kit everything I needed to install was included I bought this because it had a volume knob, my van does not have steering wheel controls and I don't want to be hunting for the small buttons on most stereos. The audio quality is a better than the factory radio especially in the bass range. Radio reception is a bit worse on distant stations but acceptable.Disc player starts quickly and sounds good, even has popup keypad to direct access files. Mic is built in so I didn't have to mount an external one. Streaming works well with my Galaxcy S7.The screen is bright and easy to read even in daytime with sunshine hitting the display only complaint is brightness just lowers with light on and does not adjust with rest of panel lamps. The interface is clear but a bit cumbersome to use. You have to press home then source to change source or continually press the source button, other stereos I've had had shortcuts for most used sources. Only reason not 5 stars is connector arrived with wire loose I had to push the pin out and solder the ground wire. Great stereo on a budget!
Pros: Real volume knob, Bright clear screen
Cons: Source selection cumbersome, Connector arrived with wire loose
Good sound and easy to install.
Great sound. Easy to operate. Great set of options for the decent price.
Pros: Fit right in. Great sound.
Cons: Some modifications needed to operate with the steering wheel control. Still have to figure out how to fully operate with the phone
Very happy with Boss DVD after about a month.
Work's great Tried some of the features so far DVD,CD,Bluetooth.
Good product!!! For the price.
Can't beat it for the price, work's great Tried it all DVD,CD,SD,USB,Bluetooth, & backup camera. For under 150.00 bucks Can't go wrong
Pros: It's all good Easy hook up
Cons: haven't found any yet
Easy to use, clear display, good fm reception
This is my first double din radio and it's nice. Really happy with it
Pros: Easy to use, remote, sounds great
Cons: Wish you could change the background to your own wallpaper
Works great and fit like a glove. Installation was a breeze. I need the built in amp as my old system had an amp that did not work. Nice cheap upgrade from what I had.
Great value for the price. I purchased it because I needed a DVD receiver for back-up camera video. All functions work well.
Pros: Surprisingly little delay in display becoming active.
Cons: Installations instructions are a bit sketchy, had to call support.
I love this car stereo. It looks good and sounds great. Easy install!
Worked great, nice product - all details provided by Crutchfield made install go simple.
I love this car stereo. It looks good and sounds great. Easy install!
Pros: Easy installation
I bought this Boss system for my 2005 Trailblazer truck and the sound is clear the DVD player is clear and bright. We love ,love this system will order one for my grandson 1993 Camaro.
Very good for the price.
Great fit great sound , the whole buying experience was very good. Quick delivery and boxed tight.
Just installed this unit in my daughter's 2004 Kia yesterday and am blown away by the features at that price point. I also connected a backup camera to it and wanted that and hands free calling for safety reasons. Previously I had mistakenly purchased a similar unit that didn't have Bluetooth but Crutchfield was extremely helpful in exchanging. I have another older vehicle that will most likely get the same unit.
I did like the features for the price point. However, sound quality, telephone issues, and the fact that it was constantly in standby caused me to return it.
Pros: Price, features
Cons: Back let screen too bright, have to touch screen for 3sec every time to turn off. No full off. Sound quality was lacking.
Maybe the best bang for the buck there is. A/V inputs galore. It was the least expensive head unit I could find with both an input for a backup camera and Bluetooth. 20 watts rms is over double of stock and matches well with more entry level speakers for a cost effective whole sound upgrade. It won't win any audio competitions but it's 100% better than a stock unit. I've only had it in for a few days but I'm happy.
Pros: Inexpensive. Backup cam input Good touch screen
Cons: Menus are slightly clunky to get through.
Love the look, the sound and the opportunity to enhance the safety of backing up with a camera. My vehicle is a 2006 and doesn't have those capabilities., until now. Thanks
It would be a five star rating if my usb would work. No its not the wire, i've tried 4 different wires. Upset about that but overall a good product, if you don't want to charge your phone while using music.
Cons:Crutchfield response on 1/22/2019 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support specialist, Clint, reached out to this customer to help him further. He can help you solve the problem or set up a return/exchange within 60 days of purchase. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Just installed into my 1997 Lexus ES 300 and it's MUCH better that I'd expected! Will be used mainly for streaming music, the EQ gives me a lot more control than the old stock stereo. Excellent touchscreen sensitivity, nice variety of features, nice brightness... Nice to see that the low end equipment is catching up to the higher end.
Cons: None thus far
Inexpensive with lots of features. It's been a nice upgrade from my stock stereo.
My daughter loves it. The install was relatively easy.
So far this unit is a good value. One minor glitch when the audio cut out while playing a CD. It would not work again until we ejected and reinserted the CD. But this has not repeated and I'm hoping it won't. It paired with both our phones (iPhone and Android) quickly and easily and the hands free calling works well. When using the "phone call mode" for GPS directions from our phones the unit did not answer quickly enough so the first part of the directions was always cut off, something I've also experienced in factory radios in rental cars. Four stars for that, the CD glitch and the fact that it does not pull in radio stations as well as the factory unit. It's everything I expected for the price.
Pros: Price Easy to setup and use Price
Cons: FM tuner falls a little short Cuts off the beginning of GPS directions from your phone
A very very good radio for the price. Set up was really easy and the fit was perfect looks great in my Xterra.
I like the unit, but had to give a 3 because the CD stopped working during the first week. Crutchfield was great about it and sent a replacement. So far no issues with the new one and it has a great picture and great sound. Installation was relatively easy. Thought it was going to work with steering column controls out of box but it did not.
My wife loves this unit. I was a replacement for an older dvd player that went bad and would not play. She loves the ease of use of the bluetooth features and how easy it was to sync the phone to the unit. Me I just love the ease of installation into an older van that's 12 years old. I love the deep bass and the clarity. a full feature family mobile entertainment system.. great job Boss
Pros: Easy Install
Cons: Price deceives you on the quality.
This radio lacks a ton of features that competitive brands offer. It will not play music files from a flash drive via USB. It's not Apple compatible. This thing has a mind of its own - it turns off in the middle of play. Video quality (back-up camera) colors are washed out, I've tried my camera with other receivers with much better results. Stay away from this one.
Pros: Cant find any
Cons: Lacks a lot of features for the price Wont play music files from flash drive/USB Video colors are washed-out
I had originally purchased a CarPlay Unit but decided that I didn't actually need it. I was looking for something inexpensive but still produced good sound and had some expandability. The install with the ready harness was super easy. I loved that I didn't need to route a microphone cable through my dash - this unit had a Bluetooth microphone built into the head unit. I also added SWC and they work perfectly. I'm able to control tracks, mode and volume from my steering wheel. I don't believe crutchfield shows this unit using SWC, but in fact it does. I also purchased an AV to HDMI adapter so I can screen mirror my phone to this display, which allows me to use Maps and Waze mirrored from my phone. I was skeptical at first because BOSS doesn't always receive the best reviews, but this unit serves it purpose for what I was looking for. I would have given it 5 stars if the USB port could be used for more than just charging my iPhone.
Pros: Great Sound Reliable Bloothtooth Steering Wheel Controls AV inputs Easy Setup.
Cons: USB does not support iPhone or iPod playback. Screen is a little dim in direct sunlight.
