About the JVC KW-M865BW

JVC's KW-M865BW digital multimedia receiver features built-in Wi-Fi, giving you the convenience of wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ without the cables. Add on tons of music sources, phone features, hands-free calling, and innovative sound-shaping tools, all accessible from a customizable 6.8" Clear Resistive touchscreen.

Wireless smartphone control

JVC's KW-M865BW digital multimedia receiver features built-in Wi-Fi, giving you the convenience of wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ without the cables. Add on tons of music sources, phone features, hands-free calling, and innovative sound-shaping tools, all accessible from a customizable 6.8" Clear Resistive touchscreen.

How to connect your phone

With your iPhone® or Android™ smartphone you'll gain a variety of apps that are simple to switch between, whether you're using this radio's touchscreen or voice control.

  • Wireless and wired Android Auto: Android Auto integrates the Android platform into your driving experience in a non-distracting way. You'll have voice control access to Google Maps, weather, music, your phone, text messages, plus easy access to many of your favorite apps. Get more info at https://www.android.com/auto.
  • Wireless and wired Apple CarPlay: CarPlay integrates your iPhone® into the driving experience, putting iPhone content at the driver's voice command with minimal distraction. That means easy access to your music library, your phone, messages, navigation, and many third-party streaming music apps, too. Learn more at https://www.apple.com/ios/carplay.

Additionally, JVC's built-in Wi-Fi allows you to wirelessly mirror select Android devices on the KW-M865BW's touchscreen while your parking brake is engaged, so you can view an app not supported by Android Auto. With a wired USB connection, this JVC will mirror your iPhone as well.

Bluetooth® built in

Bluetooth enables wireless streaming for music and hands-free phone calls. You can quickly switch between two paired phones — handy for vehicles with more than one driver. Many portable audio players also include Bluetooth, so you can stream your personal music collections while you're on the road. When it comes to streaming audio, JVC's Streaming DJ feature lets you pair five phones so everybody can add their favorite songs to the road trip playlist. You can also control this car stereo directly from your phone using JVC's free Remote app.

Lots of entertainment

The KW-M865BW's two rear USB port offer a lot of options, like high-resolution FLAC file playback from a thumb drive. And if AM/FM radio isn't enough, you can add an optional SiriusXM tuner and seriously expand the scope of your entertainment choices.

Add four cameras

JVC gives you three camera inputs for a cargo cam, a front-view cam, a backup cam, and more, plus you can use the A/V input for a camera if needed. With compatible vehicles and the addition of a select iDatalink Maestro module, you can retain blind spot cameras thanks to these extra camera inputs. And if you've got a backseat crew that needs a distraction, you can feed them some video by connecting additional monitors to this receiver's video output.

Customize your screen

With the addition of customizable widgets, JVC lets you see more of what you use the most at a glance. And to keep your attention on the road, JVC lets you use simple swipe and circular movements on the display for changing tracks, accessing music folders, and adjusting the volume.

Serious sound tools

JVC's sound-sculpting controls, including a 13-band graphic equalizer and time alignment, let you dial in the perfect sound for your vehicle. To enhance compressed audio, JVC's K2 technology helps bring back the depth and detail for all your digital music sources. The Sound Lift feature adjusts your music's frequencies to virtually "raise" speakers that are lower in the doors for better, more natural imaging.

iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras

The KW-M865BW offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included). With many vehicles, this module lets you keep factory features that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. Once you've identified your vehicle, you'll see the iDatalink module offered on the way to the Shopping Cart if it's compatible.

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.

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.
