About the JVC KW-M730BT

Designed for drivers

JVC made their KW-M730BT multimedia receiver for those who demand great sound, outstanding connectivity, and ease of operation. With Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, this receiver lets you control many of your smartphone functions directly from its big, bright 6.8" resistive touchscreen. You can also enjoy a wide range of media options, like Pandora® and SiriusXM, and use the extensive sound shaping controls to get the sound you want. 

Designed for drivers

JVC made their KW-M730BT multimedia receiver for those who demand great sound, outstanding connectivity, and ease of operation. With Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, this receiver lets you control many of your smartphone functions directly from its big, bright 6.8" resistive touchscreen. You can also enjoy a wide range of media options, like Pandora® and SiriusXM, and use the extensive sound shaping controls to get the sound you want. 

Apple CarPlay®

CarPlay seamlessly integrates your iPhone into the driving experience, thanks to a slick interface that puts iPhone content right at your fingertips. You'll be able to access your music library, audiobooks, phone, messages, navigation, and many third-party streaming music apps, too. Learn more at


Works with Apple and Android smartphones

Android Auto

If you're an Android user, this receiver is ready for your phone, too. You'll love how Android Auto integrates the popular platform into the driving experience without distracting you from the job at hand — driving . You'll have easy voice access to Google Maps, weather, music, and apps, not to mention your text messages. And you can make calls, too, of course. Get more info at

Built-in Bluetooth®

The KW-M730BT's built-in Bluetooth lets you enjoy wireless streaming for music, podcasts, and audiobooks, plus hands-free phone calls. You can install the included wired microphone close to you, so callers can hear you loud and clear. You'll also get voice control when pairing an iPhone with Siri. And this receiver can quickly switch between two paired phones, which is really handy when your vehicle is used by more than one driver.

Music, music, music

If you enjoy Internet radio on your iPhone® or Android™, you'll have a blast playing music from Pandora and Spotify through this receiver. If you're looking for radio stations that won't disappear when you head into the hills, add a SiriusXM tuner and enjoy satellite radio's rich selection of programs wherever you go. A highly sensitive AM/FM tuner will catch all your local stations.

Even more media options

Sometimes you want to hear your own favorite road mixes, and the KW-M730BT has you covered there, too. You'll find a rear aux input for a portable music player, and two rear USB ports that can handle your digital music files, as well as tunes from your iPhone or Android. This JVC will even play 192kHz/24-bit high-resolution audio files that you've loaded on a thumb drive. The display will show video when you're parked, and you can show video on the go to your backseat passengers if you add optional screens in back.

Customize your sound

Once you've chosen your tunes, you can perfect your sound with a vast array of sound controls, including a 13-band graphic equalizer and digital time alignment. JVC's K2 technology helps restore depth and detail to digital music from all sorts of sources. And, because most car speakers are located low in the doors, the KW-M730BT also offers Sound Lift, which adjusts your music's frequencies to virtually "raise" your speakers for better, more natural imaging.

Three pairs of hot 4-volt RCA preamp outputs provide an ultra-clean signal when it's time to add amplifiers to your system. JVC also includes variable color illumination and a customizable layout for the display, letting you pick the look that works in your dash.

Keep factory features with iDatalink Maestro

The KW-M730BT offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (sold separately). The module lets you keep factory features in your Chrysler, Ford, GM, Toyota, Fiat, or VW vehicle that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You'll also be able to check out expanded functionality on the JVC's screen, including gauges, climate controls, a distance sensor, and tire pressure and temperature monitors. It'll even integrate your stealth K40 radar detector into the stereo's display, so you can see and hear about incoming threats (coming soon). 

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

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.

Smartphone note: If you're going to use your smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Touchscreen + Remote Control

    6.8" Clear Resistive Touchscreen: The JVC KW-M730BT features a 6.8" widescreen (16:9) clear resistive touchscreen LCD with LED backlighting. The clear resistive touchscreen LCD provides a high contrast ratio, crystal clear display, and vivid text. The LCD touchscreen has a resolution of 800 (H) x 480 (V) x RGB with 1,152,000 total pixels. The LCD serves as a video monitor, system information display, and touchscreen control panel.

    • Gesture Control: In addition to basic touch control, the receiver's 6.8" touchscreen offers Gesture Control. Gesture Control lets you operate certain functions of the KW-M730BT by making specific gesture commands on the unit's touchscreen. You can adjust the volume of the multimedia receiver by making a circular motion with your finger on the unit's touchscreen. You'll also be able to navigate your music by simply swiping the touchscreen left/right or up/down.
    • El Kameleon Design: The KW-M730BT features JVC's El Kameleon "stealth" design which totally blacks out the 6.8" touchscreen monitor when the head unit is powered off or your vehicle is turned off; there is no backlit illumination at all when the receiver or vehicle is off. There is still a JVC and SiriusXM logo, plus the KW-M730BT's model number, as well as volume up/down and function buttons on the front-panel.
    Note: To prevent the display of video while the vehicle is in motion, the light green wire (attached to rear chassis) must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. You cannot view video unless your vehicle's parking brake is engaged. If you attempt to view video without the parking brake engaged, the unit's LCD touchscreen will simply display a blue screen and "Parking Off". While your vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view all of the head unit's menu screens/settings, source information, metadata, and album artwork; as well as CarPlay & Android Auto.

    Display Settings: You can make the following adjustments to the head unit's touchscreen display to better fit your application and needs.

    • Custom Home Screen & Backgrounds: You can customize the head unit's Home Screen by rearranging the icons and moving the icons of the four most sources you use most to this screen. You can also choose between six preset background images or download your own still image (800 x 480) for use as the unit's background from a connected USB thumbdrive.
    • Variable Color Illumination: The touchscreen panel's color illumination can be changed to one of eight preset colors - blue, red, green, yellow, orange, purple, pink, or aqua. You can also choose to have the unit constantly scroll through all eight preset color. In addition, you can create a custom color using a combination (0-31) of red, green, and blue.
    • Clock Display: The digital media receiver offers a 12-hour clock which is visible from any source or menu screen. With your vehicle's key in the accessory or start position, the head unit will continue to display the LCD background image, clock, and button illumination during "AV Off" mode. Pressing the Power button touchscreen icon turns the unit off completely.
    • Dimmer: When the illumination lead (orange/white) is connected and the dimmer set to Auto, the display will dim automatically when you turn on your vehicle's lights. The dimmer can also be set to Off (normal brightness at all times), On (display is always dimmed), or Sync (dims or brightens when the headlight switch is turned on or off).

    Remote Control: The JVC KW-M730BT offers compatibility with factory steering wheel controls (adapter sold separately) and is compatible with JVC's IR wireless remote control (RM-RK258, sold separately) for added convenience.

    • Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input wire (blue/yellow) within the included wiring harness that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately).
    • Optional Remote Control: The JVC digital media receiver is compatible with JVC's wireless IR remote control (RM-RK258, sold separately).

    Security Code: You can program the unit with a 4 digit security code. Once the unit has been programmed with a security code, the code must be entered to use the unit after it has been disconnected from power.

    iPhone Integration w/ CarPlay

    Apple CarPlay Compatible: Apple CarPlay is the smarter, safer in-vehicle interface to operate your iPhone (iOS 7.1+) with Lightning-connector. Your iPhone must be connected to the JVC receiver's "black" USB port (not "grey") via the included USB extension cable and the Lightning-cable that came with your Apple device or JVC's Lightning connector-to-USB cable (105KSU62, sold separately). CarPlay features Siri voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. It also works with the JVC receiver's touchscreen controls. Use CarPlay to get directions, make phone calls, listen to voice mail, send/ receive messages and select music in a way that keeps you focused on the road ahead.

    • Maps: The power and simplicity of Apple Maps comes to your dashboard; complete with turn-by-turn direction, traffic conditions, and estimated travel time. You can enter a new destination or choose a favorite or recent destination using the head unit's touchscreen or by simply asking Siri. CarPlay can also predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars.
    • Phone & Messages: You'll be able to make calls, return missed calls, and listen to voicemails through the JVC receiver. Siri can also help you do all these things. In addition, Siri can send, read, and reply to your text messages for you; so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving.
    • Music Library: Access your artists, song, playlists, and iTunes Radio on your iPhone using the JVC receiver's touchscreen. Or, just tell Siri what you'd like to listen to. The head unit's touchscreen will display song/artist information, as well as album art in the background.
    • Apps: CarPlay also supports additional audio apps that you've downloaded to your iPhone for enjoying music, radio, sports, news, podcasts, & audiobooks. Control them from the head unit's touchscreen just like you would from your iPhone. Current supported apps include (fees may apply):


    • Bluetooth hands-free phone cannot be used while Apple CarPlay is being used with a connected iPhone.
    • If you need an additional USB extension cable, use Kenwood's CA-U1EX USB extension cable (113CAU1EX, sold separately). Any other USB extension cable can cause CarPlay to malfunction.

    iPod/iPhone Music Playback Only: If you don't desire Apple CarPlay, you can also connect your Lightning-connector Apple iPod/iPhone to the KW-M730BT for music playback & control only using JVC's Lightning connector-to-USB cable (105KSU62, sold separately) or the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device. You can use either USB port on the radio. The receiver supports playback of stored music and music apps, along with control and charging, plus song/artist information and album art.

    • Head Unit Control: The JVC head unit allows you to navigation your iPod/iPhone's music library from its front-panel & touchscreen controls. The head unit offers unique search features like Category Search & Link Search, plus offers basic playback functions like Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, Previous/Next Track and Repeat/Random of your connected iPod/iPhone. You'll also still be able to control most connected Apple devices from its own touchscreen while connected via USB.
      • Category Search: Category Search allows you to navigate your iPod/iPhone's music library by Playlist, Artists, Album, Song, Genre, Song, Podcast, Audiobook, or Radio. You can then search each of these categories using the head unit's touchscreen slider function (categories will be listed in alphabetical order).
      • Link Search: The head unit offers Link Search, which allows you to play songs related to the currently playing song. Link Search lets the head unit create an album list of the currently playing artist, a song list of the currently playing album, an artist list of the currently playing genre, or an album list of currently playing composer.
    • Song/Artist Info & Album Art: The KW-M730BT will display your iPod/iPhone's stored music information including Track number, Elapsed playing time, Song/Album title, Artist name, and Album art. The unit will also display song/artist info and album art from select music apps.
    • Battery Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1.5A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. If your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.

    Apple Device Compatibility Chart: The JVC KW-M730BT is "Made for iPod/iPhone" compatible and supports the following iPod/iPhone model features (as of 2/22/2018):

    Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

    iPod/iPhone Connection Notes: Connection notes regarding Apple iPod/iPhone connectivity -

    • Only one Apple iPod or iPhone can be connected at a time. If you try and connect two Apple devices at the same time, you get the following on-screen message "Only the first connected iPod can be used". You'll need to disconnect both devices and reconnect the one you want to listen to.
    • An Apple CarPlay device and Android Auto device cannot be connected at the same time, because they use the same "black" USB port (not "grey").
    • You can connect an Apple iPod/iPhone to the "black" USB port and a USB thumbdrive to the "grey" USB port at the same time.

    Android Auto + USB Playback

    Android Auto: The JVC digital media receiver supports the Android Auto app for Android smartphones running OS Lollipop (5.0 or newer). Your compatible Android smartphone must be connected to the JVC receiver's "black" USB port (not "grey") via the included USB extension cable and the USB cable that came with your smartphone, plus be paired via Bluetooth. Android Auto extends the Android platform into your car in a way that's purpose-built for driving and automatically brings you useful information and organizes it into simple on-screen "card-style" pop-ups that appear just when they're needed. It's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road ahead. Features of Android Auto include:

    • Google Assistant: The JVC receiver enhances your Android Auto experience even more by incorporating Google Assistant using the head unit's external microphone and your car speakers for voice command and text-to-speech, which makes using Android Auto and all of its integrated applications fast, easy, and safe. You will need to press the "mic" button or say "OK Google" to activate the Google Assistant. Use the Google Assistant to make a call, send a message, reply to a message, get driving directions, or listen to music.
    • Google & Waze Maps: Use Google Maps to get where you're going with on-screen maps, voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance, and more. Select your destination by using the head unit's touchscreen or just say where you want to go through the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology. You can even listen to music from your Android Auto device or other connected source device while using Google Maps. If you prefer, you can switch over to a simpler version of the community-based Waze navigation app (version 4.27 or higher).
    • Phone & SMS: With Android Auto you get access to your contacts and messages through the Pioneer NEX receiver while keeping your eyes on the road. Use the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology to make a phone call, or have your text-messages read aloud to you while you concentrate on the road ahead; you can even reply to texts via voice command.
    • Music: Access your Android smartphone's music library through the Pioneer receiver via Google Play Music. You'll be able to browse music like you do on your smartphone with song/artist information display and album art. Use the receiver's touchscreen to select songs or just say what song you want to listen to through the head unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology. You also get access to online music and radio stations from Amazon Music, Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, Slacker Radio, & Tune-In. Music apps include song and station browsing, plus song/artist information and album art or station logo.


    • Android smartphones with a USB Type-C connector (including the Pixel) may not function without appropriate USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Android Auto is being used with a connected Android smartphone.

    Dual USB Ports: The JVC KW-M730BT features two USB ports (one is "black" and the other is "grey") that are attached to the rear-chassis via 7" cords and comes with 39" USB extension cables. These USB ports can be used for connection and control of portable USB mass-storage class (MSC) devices, such as USB thumbdrives or portable digital music players. The USB port enables playback of a variety of audio (including high resolution files) and video files stored on a compatible USB memory device (see chart below).

    • Control: The Category List screen lets you search your music folders by Playlist, Artist, Song, or Album. Once a category is selected, you can then search the music files alphabetically.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The JVC KW-M730BT is equipped with built-in Bluetooth 3.0 allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP 1.6 (Hands Free Profile), PBAB 1.0 (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.3 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP 1.5 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the JVC KW-M730BT. Check here for the latest Bluetooth compatibility information.

    SSP & USB Pairing: With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the JVC KW-M730BT without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. You can even pair your Apple iPhone (iOS 5+) or Android smartphone (running JVC Music Play App) by simply connecting it to the JVC head unit via USB and following a single prompt on the head unit's display.

    • Multi-Device Pairing: You can pair up to ten Bluetooth-enabled devices to the JVC head unit, with a maximum of two Bluetooth phones, or one Bluetooth phone and one Bluetooth audio device connected at the same time; making it easier to switch between devices. When an already paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units.
    • Dual Phone Connection: Thanks to the Dual Phone Connection feature, two Bluetooth-enabled phones can remain connected to the JVC receiver. This means you can an answer an incoming call from either phone from the head unit. Also, both of your phone's contact lists are downloaded to the receiver. To make a call from one of the phones using the JVC receiver, you simply have to select Phone 1 or Phone 2 on the head unit's touchscreen.

    Hands-Free Communication w/ External Mic: The head unit supports Bluetooth hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. Thanks to the latest Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.6) with wideband speech capability, the JVC KW-M730BT provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls. The touchscreen controls of the KW-M730BT can be used to dial a number, answer an in-coming call, or end a call. The unit also includes an external microphone (featuring adjustable gain), so you can carry on your side of the conversation while listening to the caller through your vehicles speakers (All or Front only). During a conversation, you can switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your phone) and the Hands Free Mode.

    • Answering a Call: When a call comes in, a ring-tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker and the caller's name or phone number will be displayed. You can answer the call from the head unit's touchscreen, or setup the head unit to automatically answer the incoming call immediately (1-30 seconds).
    • Dialing a Number: Using the KW-M730BT, you can dial a phone number in one of the following ways:
      • Entering a Phone Number: Allows you to directly dial a phone number from the head unit's touchscreen keypad.
      • Preset Dialing: Allows you to register up to 5 phone numbers for quick dialing. The preset numbers can be accessed from the head unit's touchscreen.
      • Phonebook: You can download phonebook data (up to 1000 entries) from your phone to the KW-M730BT. You can then dial by using the downloaded phone book and search it alphabetically.
      • Call History: The Call History is a list of calls that have originated from and were received by this unit that you can dial. You can select Outgoing, Incoming, or Missed calls (up to 50 entries total).
      • Voice Dialing: If your mobile phone supports voice recognition, then you can dial out by voice command. Simply speak into the included microphone.
    Note: This unit allows you to answer a call or dial out using any option without engaging the vehicle's parking brake.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The JVC KW-M730BT supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or audio player, plus song/artist information display. You are able to stream your stored music library on your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, as well as music apps downloaded on your smartphone to the JVC KW-M730BT for playback.

    • SBC + AAC Codecs: In addition to support for the standard SBC Bluetooth audio codec, the KW-M730BT offers support of AAC. By supporting AAC, the KW-M730BT offers better audio performance of the music streamed from your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
    • Advanced Music Browsing: In addition to basic playback functions (Play/Pause, FF/RW, Skip, Random/Repeat), the KW-M730BT lets you browse your stored music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, etc. (AVRCP 1.4-up phones only; which includes Android 4.0+ and iPhone 5.0+).
    • Song/Artist Information: The head unit will also display your stored music and music app's song information; such as Artist name and Song/Album title (not compatible with all apps).
    Note: When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.

    Siri Eyes Free Control: When paired to an iPhone with Siri via Bluetooth, the JVC KW-M730BT has the ability to access Siri through its front-panel touchscreen control and external microphone. Simply press the "phone command" button on the KW-M730BT to engage Siri and use the included microphone to communicate with Siri. Siri's voice will heard through your vehicle's speakers. All Siri functions including hands-free calling, music search, setting reminders, text-messaging, audible navigation, and more can be done through the head unit and its microphone. You can even ask Siri to get directions to a destination and the turn-by-turn instructions will heard through your vehicle's speakers, while the on-screen map still displays on your iPhone with Bluetooth; the head unit's audio is attenuated while Siri provides audible directions.

    Note: The head unit will only display hands-free calling and Bluetooth audio information (all other functions of Siri are only audible through the KW-M730BT; visual data will still need to be viewed from your iPhone device).

    This unit has no built-in navigation capability of its own. However, if you connect your phone to it and use Android Auto or CarPlay, your phone can display a map and do navigation for you. The unit does come with a GPS antenna, which is used by your phone when connected to get better GPS reception.

    No but it does display gps from Apple phones. Not sure about other?
    [ Pat  Jan 15, 2018 ]
    Included GPS antenna appears to be just for keeping the clock set. Mapping is done by your phone, using the radio screen. I love this radio! I have an iPhone and the Bluetooth works great for audio functions but Car Play is better still for audio, messaging, mapping, and more.

    The JVC stereo features the RCA pre-amp outputs for providing audio signal to an external amplifier, sure. Having said that; adding an aftermarket amp to a Hybrid vehicle and factory speakers presents their own issues. (Factory speakers are not made to handle a lot of wattage and hybrid vehicles have sensitive electronics that cannot support the added power draw of high powered aftermarket amps) For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly by phone or through our online chat service:

    Does this unit come with USB cable for Apple CarPlay or do you need to purchase separately? Also how did everyone run the cord, in glovebox?

    Yes, it comes with two USB cables. I replaced two 12volt plugs with replacement USB plugs. Looks factory.

    Yes. I hooked my existing backup camera to this radio and it works fine. I have a 2014.5 camry. However, you can probably buy an aftermarket camera also. The radio doesn't care. Just make sure you get the appropriate wiring harness so you can hook the camera up to the radio.

    what is the included gps antenna used for?
    [ Kenneth  Oct 17, 2017 ]
    1 answer
    When you have your phone connected for Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, the phone will use the JVC's GPS antenna instead of its own for navigation. The idea is that it will get better GPS reception that way, especially if your phone is tucked away in a compartment somewhere while plugged into the USB cable.

    Where is the radio ID number located?
    [ HerbieHerb  Sep 01, 2017 ]

    You mean the SiriusXM tuner ID? If you have the compatible SiriusXM tuner connected (SXV300V1) you can view the radio /tuner ID number on the JVC's display by switching down to channel 0 from the SiriusXM preview channel (channel 1).

    Can this unit be removed and the original stereo placed back in? When I sell the car, I may want to keep the unit or just sell the car closer to stock. Does this installation permanently modify the face plate or any other parts of the car?

    This will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation.

    If you're using Android Auto, you may also find that you can just say "OK Google" at any time and the feature will activate. This may be dependent on the phone you have, but it worked with mine.
    [ Scott  Oct 17, 2017 ]
    Yes. I have a Rendezvous and one of the buttons on the right hand side will activate Google Assistant.

    Are you asking about the jvc or the Sony?
    [ Raymond  Aug 01, 2017 ]
    Did not see a way to program the steering wheel button but when an iPhone is connected directly with the USB connector, Apple CarPlay allows verbal access to phone functions by saying "Hey Siri" at any time.
    [ Phil  Jul 31, 2017 ]
    Yes you need a Steering Wheel Control (SWC) that is programmable. I used the idataLink Maestro and it worked with no problems. We have the JVC KW-M730BT and are using Android Auto with a LG V20 phone.

    Is anyone regretting buying this unit due to most things work with your phone? Any issues with reception of cell phone? I believe this is the perfect unit, just a little hesitant because if phone is not working unit technically isn't in use.

    I have only had it a short time but no problems or regrets so far. Keep in mind you can use a USB drive as well as music hard loaded onto your phone if you are in a bad coverage area. Currently I have been streaming with no problems. If you have good phone service where you drive mostly you should be fine. Navigation will be a problem if you lose coverage. So far I am very pleased with the unit.
    [ Raymond  Jun 27, 2017 ]
    I Just bought it and love works good, calls music, and Google maps
    [ Heather  Jun 27, 2017 ]
    I have not had any cell phone reception issues with my unit. My only wish is for waze to join the available app, but that is an Android auto issue not a fault of this unit. I am quite satisfied.
    [ Lana  Jun 27, 2017 ]
    Kail, No regrets this unit works great. No issues using the phone (Samsung S5) but did have to do some volume adjustment in the BT section. Hope some tweaking makes your experience better. Bob

    Does this unit have a warning message at startup that requires you to accept each time the unit turns on or is there a way to bypass?
    [ Brad  May 31, 2017 ]

    Yes, it does and even with a bypass installed, but it lasts only 10 seconds.You learn to ignore it after awhile
    [ LINARDY  Jun 04, 2017 ]
    There's a message you must accept, but you're given the option to checkmark a box that allows the message to disappear after 10 seconds, without having to manually agree to it, each startup. Mines checkmarked.

    does the bluetooth functionality require a microphone to stick out from the deck or be mounted somewhere else in the car, or is it integrated into the deck?
    [ joseph  May 03, 2017 ]
    4 answers
    The receiver comes with a Bluetooth microphone with about 6 ft of wire and a clip to clip to anywhere you'd like inside the car. I'm assuming in cars that have built in Bluetooth, it won't allow you to use the car's microphone. You'll also have to figure out a way to route the wire from behind the receiver to wherever you're planning to clip the mic.
    [ Robert  May 04, 2017 ]
    The deck comes with a microphone that you mount somewhere in the car. I unsteady bleed this deck about 3 weeks ago and it works great!
    [ Patrick  May 04, 2017 ]
    Yes, you need to mount the mic somewhere in the car. You can play around where you want it to make sure it sounds good. I mounted the mic behind the rear view mirror of a sentra attached to the headliner
    [ LINARDY  May 03, 2017 ]
    Needs to be mounted in the car, either sun visor or steering wheel column. Microphone is included and installation is pretty easy

    Does using Apple Car Play require a special USB cable to stick out of my dashboard and require a special cable?
    [ joseph  May 03, 2017 ]

    While this unit does have 2 USB ports, it is not able to run both at the same time. As for compatible Android devices, any Android smartphone or tablet running OS 5.0 or higher will work.
