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 BV765BLC DVD receiver fits the bill. Its 6.5" display includes a variable color background, simple icon controls for your DVD, CD, SD, 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.
Large icons help you find the source you want with a quick glance.
Bluetooth delivers wireless convenience
Bluetooth enables wireless streaming for stored music, Internet radio stations 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 video screens to the receiver's two video outputs and keep your backseat passengers entertained. Talk about value — Boss also included a backup camera with the BV765BLC receiver. Install it on the top part of the license plate holder, run some wire to the back of the receiver, and bingo, you can then 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. You can load up a USB drive or SD 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.
