About the Boss BV765B

Touchscreen on a budget

If you're thinking about a new touchscreen car stereo that offers a lot for your hard-earned dough, Boss's BV765B DVD receiver fits the bill. Its 6.5" display includes a variable color background, simple icon controls for your DVD, CD, microSD, and USB sources, and built-in Bluetooth® for hands-free calling and wireless audio streaming from your smartphone. And Boss backs up this receiver with a 3-year warranty – almost unheard of for a car stereo in this price range.

And Boss backs up this receiver with a 3-year warranty – almost unheard of for a car stereo in this price range.

Bluetooth delivers wireless convenience

Bluetooth enables wireless streaming for stored music, music-streaming services like Pandora and Spotify, podcasts, and audiobooks. Android™ users can pair to this receiver, download Boss's control app, and run the show right from their phone. This receiver also lets you 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.

Bring on the video

When your car is parked, you can use 6.5" screen to view movies. You can also see your artist and song info without squinting. If you want to take your show on the road, connect a video screen to the receiver's video output and keep your backseat passengers entertained. Connect an optional camera (not included) to the rear camera input and you can use your new in-dash display to help back into those tight parking spots.

More media options

Turning to music, you can slide in just about any disc, even a recordable DVD or CD loaded with MP3 files. Or load up a USB drive or microSD card with your digital music, plug them in, and let them play for hours. The front auxiliary input lets your connect a portable player, like a portable high-res player. This Boss includes 7-band EQ and seven presets for quick tone changes. 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.

    Touchscreen & Remote Control

    6.5" LCD Touchscreen: Boss BV765B DVD 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 switch between 3 preset wallpaper/backgrounds.
    • Picture Adjustment: During DVD playback you can adjust the display's brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, and sharpness.
    • Date & Time: You can set the unit to display a 12 or 24 hour clock, as well as program in the year, month, & day.
    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 (within wiring harness) must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged.

    Hard-Key Controls: In addition to the unit's LCD touchscreen controls, the BV765B also features hard-key controls on the left edge of the screen (including a 3-way rotary audio control).

    IR Remote: The Boss BV765B includes a 37-button IR remote control for complete wireless operation of the DVD receiver.

    Optional Steering Wheel Control: The unit features a SWC (steering wheel control) input which lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional Metra, PAC, or Maestro steering wheel control adapter (sold separately).

    Bluetooth & Mirroring

    Bluetooth Technology: The Boss BV765B DVD receiver is equipped with built-in Bluetooth, providing hands-free communication and audio streaming for added convenience and safety in the vehicle. Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the BV765B. 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 BV765B.

    • Hands-Free Communication (w/ Integrated Mic): The Boss BV765B allows for wireless communication between the head unit and your Bluetooth enabled smartphone. The head unit will display the caller's phone number 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 touchscreen. The BV765B 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 Boss receiver's LCD touchscreen via its on-screen keypad, your phone's transferred phonebook, or a list of your most recent calls.
    • Wireless Audio Streaming: The Boss BV765B also allows you to play back stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet, or other device using a Bluetooth connection. You can control basic music playback functions, like Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track from the Boss head unit. 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: This unit does not support the connection of an external microphone.

    A-Link App (Screen Mirroring): The A-LINK App (for Android OS 8.0+) allows you to mirror the screen of certain Android smartphones on the screen of the Boss BV765B DVD receiver. You'll need to connect your compatible Android smartphone to receiver's front-panel USB port. In addition to mirroring your compatible Android smartphone, the A-Link app also allows 2-way control so you can control the mirrored content from your Android smartphone or the Boss receiver's touchscreen.

    • Scan QR code in manual to download app.
    • Your vehicle's Parking brake will need to be engaged to mirror video content.
    • Not all Android OS apps are supported by the A-Link app.

    • Off Insert/Eject: You can load and eject a disc with the unit off. Playback will automatically start when inserting a disc.
    • Auto Reload: When a disc is ejected and left sticking out of the disc slot for 10 seconds, the unit automatically reloads the disc to protect if from damage.

    ESP (Electronic Skip Protection): ESP is a feature that buffers the CD while playing, storing 5 seconds of music. If disc reading is interrupted, the player momentarily uses the stored data, while the tracking circuitry finds the passage prior to the interruption on the CD for continuous performance.

USB portable devices that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the DVD receiver's USB port (5V/1A), and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On.

    Note: The unit's USB port is not compatible with Apple iOS devices.

    EQ & Surround Modes: You can choose between 7 EQ presets - User, Classic, Rock, Pop, Jazz, Electric, or Flat. The User preset allows you to manually adjust the head unit's 7-Band equalizer (60, 150, 400, 1k, 3k, 7k, 15k Hz). In addition the BV765B offers Surround modes (Concert, Church, Wide, Live, Passive, or None) to create a more immersive listening experience inside your vehicle.

    Loudness: The Loudness setting allows you to enhance the receiver's bass & treble at lower volume levels.

    Key Beep: The in-dash receiver provides an audible beep to confirm operation This function can be turned On or Off.

    AM/FM Tuner: The Boss BV765B features a built-in AM/FM tuner. The BV765B features 3 FM banks and 2 AM bank for storing presets (automatically or manually).

Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. You can also switch between Stereo/Mono modes for better reception. The tuner also features selectable North America and European tuning.

    AV Connections

    Rearview Camera Input: The BV765B features a composite video input for connection of a rear view camera (sold separately). This enables better visibility when backing up. When an optional rearview camera is connected to this unit, the rear view image is displayed on the integrated 6.5" LCD screen when your vehicle is placed in reverse gear (purple/white wire of the harness must be connected to the reverse light wire of vehicle). Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.5 second.

    Note: The included camera is meant as a visual aid only; never solely rely on the camera. In addition to using the camera, always physically look to make sure everything is clear around your vehicle.

    Front Camera Input: The Boss BV765B is also equipped with a composite video front camera input for adding a front camera (sold separately) to your vehicle. From the receiver's touchscreen, you can manually switch over to the front camera image.

    AV Inputs: The Boss BV765B is outfitted with a front-panel Aux input (3.5mm) for connecting a portable audio device, plus a rear-panel composite video/stereo RCA AV input for connecting an external audio/video device.

    Video Output: A composite video output jack allows you to add an external monitor, such as a rear headrest monitor or overhead monitor (sold separately). The video output can display a DVD, USB, microSD, or AV-input video signal when it's selected as the receiver's source, but only when your vehicle's parking brake is engaged (the light green wire of the radio's harness must be hardwired to the vehicle's parking brake light circuit).

    Customer Q&A

    15 questions already asked

    do you have to hook up parking brake wire?
    [ sammy  Mar 07, 2023 ]
    1 answer
    You do, Sammy. The parking brake connection is required for safety, and you will need to make this connection correctly to get full functionality of the Boss Radio. Making this connection improperly could have the radio stay in demo mode, or potentially forget your Bluetooth pairings when the radio powers off. Using the radio without properly installing will also void your incredible 5-year warranty from Boss, and we don't want that!

    [ KENNETH  Apr 27, 2022 ]  Staff
    I have not used this feature so I don't know. But I can discuss visibility: Generally, it is pretty easy to see all information displayed on the screen. Only time I've really had some issues is with full sun directly shining on the screen -then it is a little more difficult to see print.
    [ STEPHEN  Apr 27, 2022 ]
    With this stereo it is extremely difficult to hear my daughter talking so I added an external microphone on the 3.5mm plug as suggested which does not seem to help. When she was tapping the microphone there was extra noise. What do I need to do?

    No, its a fixed position screen, what I did for the customer was to take an old faceplate & cut it off so they could make it look like an old crapped out factory deck.

    Is this Ipod compatible??
    [ Raymond  Jul 25, 2021 ]
    4 answers
    This unit's USB port is not compatible with Apple devices. As Greg pointed out, its Bluetooth will work with iPod's that also have Bluetooth and it has an aux audio input that can be used to play audio from a headphone output on an iPod. If you are hoping to connect an iPod to a USB input, then I recommend contacting an advisor by calling 1-800-324-9695 to discuss all your goals and your specific model iPod to get a personal recommendation on a receiver
    [ JASON  Jul 31, 2021 ]  Staff
    I do not know, I don't use Apple products. It does work perfectly with my pre-historic era Sansa Fuze. Even if it is not compatible with your Ipod just copy all the songs to an sd card and insert that into the Boss. All port types worked when tested, have only had it up and running for 2 days.
    [ GWENDOLYN  Jul 30, 2021 ]
    It has auxiliary input and Bluetooth. So it should hook up through auxiliary just fine
    [ GREGORY  Jul 30, 2021 ]
    I don't have the answer to that, I hooked up my IPhone and with no help from my kids. I just put in the radio last week and really haven't played to much with all the features yet.
    [ DAVID  Jul 29, 2021 ]
    Can you upload custom backgrounds/wallpapers through a smartphone app? Also is it possible for this to play say a 5 second audio file automatically when the car starts up?
    [ Telfer  Jul 25, 2021 ]
    1 answer
    It is not possible to do either of those options. We do carry some receivers that can have a custom background uploaded from physical memory devices like USB thumb drives but we don't have any that I can find with the ability to upload a custom boot audio file. We have advisors that can be reached by calling 1-800-324-9695 who can help with finding a receiver with the custom background option.
    [ JASON  Jul 27, 2021 ]  Staff
    Works with steering wheel controls?
    [ Kenrick  Jul 19, 2021 ]
    1 answer
    The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
