About the JVC KW-V220BT

More radio than ever

I love the variety that satellite and Internet radio provide, and I'm excited to see the expansion of radio options that many car stereo makers are providing. A great example is JVC's KW-V220BT DVD receiver, which includes Apple Music®, Pandora® Internet radio, and an option for SiriusXM satellite radio. Plus, its built-in Bluetooth® lets you wirelessly stream music from various apps on your smartphone, as well as take hands-free calls. You can use the receiver's simple 6.2" touchscreen interface to control all the action, including its immersive sound-shaping tone controls.

Your smartphone provides media

If you enjoy Internet radio on your iPhone® or Android™, you'll really dig playing music from Pandora on this great-sounding receiver. And you iPhone users can now tune into Apple Music for even more variety.

Bluetooth enables wireless streaming for music, podcasts, and audiobooks and hands-free phone calls. This receiver lets you can quickly switch between two paired phones — handy for vehicles with more than one driver. You can install the included wired microphone close to you, so callers can hear you loud and clear. iPhone users, you'll also get voice control when pairing an iPhone with Siri.

For even more options

If you're looking for radio stations that won't fade away as you hit the highway, add a SiriusXM tuner to this JVC to enjoy satellite radio's deep programming from Suffolk to Spokane. The KW-V220BT also includes a sensitive AM/FM tuner to catch all your local stations too.

And when it's time to play your own music, this receiver also offers a DVD/CD player, a rear aux input for a portable music player, and a front USB port that can handle your MP3, WMA, and WAV music files, as well as the music stored on your iPhone or Android. The display will show video when you're parked, and you can also feed video to optional screens you can add for the backseat crew.

Options for sight and sound

And when you've picked the tunes you want to hear, you can tweak your sound by using a huge array of sound-sculpting controls, including a 13-band graphic equalizer and digital time alignment. JVC's K2 technology helps bring back the depth and detail for all your digital music sources. Because most car speakers are located down low in the doors, this receiver also offers Sound Lift, which adjusts your music's frequencies to virtually "raise" your speakers for better, more natural imaging.

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

    6.2" Touchscreen w/ Gesture Control: The KW-V220BT features a 6.2" TFT Active Matrix, 16:9 touchscreen monitor. The screen 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 lets you operate certain functions of the KW-V220BT 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.

    • Aspect Ratio & Picture Adjustment: You can change the aspect ratio for video playback. You can select from Full (16:9), Just (4:3 LB), or Normal (4:3), or Auto (automatically selects to match incoming video signal). You can also adjust the unit's display brightness, contrast, color, tint, sharpness, and black level to suit your viewing needs during video playback.
    • Custom Home Screen & Backgrounds: You can customize the head unit's Home Screen by rearranging the icons and moving the icons of the three most sources you use most to this screen. You can choose between nine preset background images or download your own still image (800 x 480) for use as the unit's background from a connected USB thumbdrive.
    • Clock Display: The DVD 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 and holding the Power/Menu button turns the unit off completely.
    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 "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.

    Front-Panel Controls: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons along the left & right edges of the screen. These controls offer a blue backlit illumination.

    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 Dimmer Time Set (you program the time for the dimmer to turn off an on).

    Remote Control: The JVC KW-V220BT 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). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.
    • Optional Remote Control: The JVC DVD receiver is compatible with JVC's wireless IR remote control (sold separately).

    2-DIN Chassis: KW-V220BT has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double-DIN"), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets. There is no mounting sleeve included for a Euro- or Custom-mount installation. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The JVC KW-V220BT is equipped with built-in Bluetooth (version 2.1+EDR/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), OPP 1.1 (Object Push 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-V220BT. Check here for the latest Bluetooth compatibility information.

    Secure Simple Pairing (SSP) + Auto Pairing (for iPhone): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the JVC KW-V220BT without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. You can even pair your Apple iPhone by simply connecting it to the JVC head unit via USB and following a single prompt on the head unit's display. When a paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units. You can pair up to ten Bluetooth-enabled devices to the JVC head unit with a maximum of two Bluetooth phones and one Bluetooth audio player connected at one time (but only one can be used at a time).

    Bluetooth 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-V220BT provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls. The touchscreen controls of the KW-V220BT 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 cell 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 (within 5 seconds).
    • Dialing A Number: Using the KW-V220BT, you can dial a phone number in one of the following ways:
      • Enter Phone #: Allows you to directly dial a phone number up to 32 digits from the head unit's touchscreen.
      • 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.
      • Phone Book: You can download phone book data from your cell phone to the KW-V220BT. You can then use the head unit's touchscreen to dial a contact from the downloaded phone book. You can search the phone book 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 10 total).
      • Voice Dialing: If your mobile phone supports voice recognition, then you can dial out by voice command. Simply press the voice control button on the head unit's front-panel and 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.

    External Mic: The external wired microphone offers improved audio quality versus an integrated microphone, so you can be heard easier over noisy traffic and road noise. You can adjust the volume level, noise cancellation, and echo cancellation of the microphone without affecting the other sources. The external microphone features an attached 10' cable terminated by a right-angle 3.5mm connector which plugs into the mic input on the rear-panel of the head unit. The microphone offers an integrated mounting bracket which can be clipped to your vehicle's sun-visor or taped to your dash.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The JVC KW-V220BT supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or audio player, plus song/artist information display and support for AAC music streaming.

    • Stored Music & Music Apps: 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-V220BT for playback.
    • SBC + AAC Codecs: In addition to support for the standard SBC Bluetooth audio codec, the KW-V220BT offers support of AAC. By supporting AAC, the KW-V220BT offers better audio performance of the music streamed from your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
    • Advanced Music Playback: In addition to basic playback functions (Play/Pause, FF/RW, Skip, Random/Repeat), the KW-V220BT lets you browse your stored music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, etc. (AVRCP 1.4+ phones only).
    • 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-V220BT has the ability to access Siri through its front-panel control and external microphone. Simply press the "phone command" button on the KW-V220BT 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-V220BT; visual data will still need to be viewed from your iPhone device).

    Android & iPhone Integration

    Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0) Connectivity: The JVC KW-V220BT's front-panel USB port lets you connect your AOA 2.0 compatible Android smartphone for music playback.

You'll also still be able to access other functions and applications from your Android smartphone's touchscreen, while listening to music through the head unit. If you make a call or answer a call from your smartphone while listening to music in this mode, the music will pause until you are finished with the call and then start back up again.
    • JVC Music Play App: Downloading the JVC Music Play app onto your Android (OS 4.1+) smartphone not only allows you to listen to stored music from your Android device through the JVC DVD receiver connected via USB, but it also lets you browse your Android smartphone's music library from the head unit's touchscreen controls.

In addition, the head unit will display song/artist information.

    • Lightning Connector: If you have a newer iPod/iPhone with the Lightning-connector, you can use JVC's Lightning connector-to-USB cable (105KSU62, sold separately) or the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device to connect your iPod/iPhone to the KW-V220BT. Video playback is not supported.
    • 30-Pin Dock Connector: If you own an older iPod/iPhone with the 30-pin dock connector, you can enjoy audio and video files on your Apple device through KW-V220BT. Using JVC's KS-U59 iPod video cable (105KSU59, sold separately), you can enjoy audio playback of your stored music and music apps on your iPod/iPhone; plus video playback of your stored movies and video apps on your iPod/iPhone through KW-V220BT. If you only desire audio playback, you can use the dock connector-to-USB cable that comes with your Apple device to connect your iPod/iPhone to the KW-V220BT.
    Note: You must indicate if how you are connecting your Apple iPod/iPhone device with the head unit's menu.

    iPod/iPhone Control: The JVC KW-V220BT lets you control your iPod/iPhone from the head unit's touchscreen, your iPod/iPhone's touchscreen/clickwheel, or a downloaded app.

    • Head Unit Control Mode: The JVC head unit allows you to navigate your iPod's music library by Playlist, Artists, Album, Song, Genre, Song, Podcast, or Audiobook. Your iPod's video library can be searched by Video Playlist, Movie, Music Video, TV Show, Video Podcast, or Rented Movie. You can then search each of these categories using the head unit's touchscreen slider function (categories will be listed in alphabetical order). The head unit also supports basic playback functions such as Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, Previous/Next Track and Repeat/Random of your connected iPod/iPhone. In Head Unit Control mode, the KW-V220BT will display your iPod/iPhone's stored music information including Track number, Elapsed playing time, Song/Album title, Artist name, and Album art. Newer iPod/iPhones with iOS 6.0+ will still allow you to navigate stored music and movies from the Apple device's touchscreen, as well access music and video apps; older iPod/iPhone devices will be locked during connection.
    • Apps Control Mode: The App control Mode allows you to navigate stored music, music apps, stored video, and video apps from your 30-pin Apple device connected via JVC's KS-U59 iPod video cable (105KSU59, sold separately). You'll still have access to basic playback controls (like Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Reverse, Previous/Next Track) from the head unit, but advanced navigation functions will be locked. Not all apps will be compatible and control will be limited. There is no music information displayed when this unit is set to iPod/App Control mode. Instead, the head unit will display "Apps" (song/artist information will need to viewed on your iPod/iPhone's LCD screen).
    Note: Access to your iPhone's downloaded applications will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone to connect to the Internet.

    Smartphone Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1.5A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone or Android smartphone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position (if your iPod/iPhone or Android smartphone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it).

    Audio & DSP Section

    MOSFET Amplifier: The JVC KW-V220BT is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power output specs for the KW-V220BT are as follows:

    • Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)

Choose from Compact, Full Size Car, Wagon, Mini Van, SUV, or Off. For a better sound-stage you can select your optimal listening position & rear speaker location.

    • Listening Position + Digital Time Alignment: You can choose from All, Front Left, Front Right or Front. You can also select to manually fine tune the sound stage, using Digital Time Alignment (DTA) by selecting the distance (0-20') for each individual speaker in the vehicle compared to your listening position.

    AV Connections

    AV Input: The JVC KW-V220BT DVD receiver is fitted with a rear-panel minijack (3.5mm) audio/video input to connect external AV sources, such as a game system, Blu-ray player, or TV tuner. The rear-panel AV input also serves as the input for JVC's proprietary KS-U59 iPod video cable (sold separately).

    Rear Camera In: The rear-panel Camera input consists of a composite video connector which allows you to connect an optional rear-view camera (sold separately). By connecting a rear view camera, you can use the in-dash receiver's touchscreen LCD to see what's behind you when backing up.

    • Parking Guide Lines: When a rear-view camera is connected and you are viewing a rear view image, parking guide lines appear on-screen making parking easy and safer. There are three color-coded horizontal guidelines and two vertical guidelines.
    • Rear-View Auto Switching: The video from this connection can be set to display when switched to this input, or display the rear view camera video automatically when the vehicle is shifted into Reverse gear. The purple/white wire (attached to rear chassis) must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching. Automatic video switching takes approximately 0.8 seconds.
    Note: The rear view camera feature is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.

    Video Output: A single RCA composite video-output jack allows you to an add external monitor such as rear headrest monitor (sold separately). The video output will display whatever video signal that is being displayed on the head unit's touchscreen monitor.

    I'd estimate around 1-2 hours for the average person given the install gear we have for it and the instructions we send. Feel free to call us on 1-800-324-9695 for a full list of the gear you need to help get it done in that time. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101

    Yes. pairing is seamless after first initialize. Ongoing audio is poor. I changed mics, and gained little in doing so.

    Yes after the set up of your phone it will pair automatically. Works great I highly recommend this receiver.

    Yes. It automatically connects up to two phones when it's powered on and near a phone.

    You only have to set it up once and it will pair automatically when you start the vehicle.

    Does this work well with an iPhone 5S, 6, and 6+ for streaming music over Bluetooth?

    A
    Yes, Bluetooth works just fine with those phones. Sometimes you need to update/refresh the stored connection information however. My 17 year old daughter seems to prefer just connecting directly to the unit with the USB connection on the lower left corner (just lift open the cover)!

    Can you load image to set as background?
    [ Bill  Apr 23, 2016 ]

    A
    Yes, the KW-V220BT features customizable backgrounds including a selectable [USER] image. The [USER] background image is imported by using the [Capture] button. I have found the easiest way to do this is to load your .jpg image on a USB drive and play it on the USB source, when the image you want to Capture is visible press pause so it stays visible then press the [Capture] button.

    Q
    Can the blue led's in the display be dimmed?
    [ cwwthree  Mar 12, 2016 ]
    5 answers
    A
    There is a dimming option in Settings/Display. It is a three option selection: Off, On, and Auto (tied to the head light switch). This only affects the main screen. The buttons on the side are unaffected and are always bright. My opinion is that there is little difference between the bright and dim settings. It would have been nice to have more brightness settings with a larger range between the two extremes. That said, this is a great unit and I am very satisfied. It has been a couple months now and since these bright/dim settings are the only negative I have found so far, I can live with it.
    [ Peter  Mar 22, 2016 ]

    Only a preset amount by changing it to dim off,or auto mode.
    [ Mark  Mar 14, 2016 ]

    There is an option to Dim and Auto dim, but the Dim is not very dim I have gotten used to it but it is bright when driving at night.
    [ LAWRENCE A  Mar 13, 2016 ]
    A
    No. The blue leds stay just as bright as they were before dimming the screen.
    [ Martha  Mar 12, 2016 ]

    If they can be dimmed I haven't figured out how to do it yet.

    By adding monitors for passengers in the back of the truck can they watch a DVD movie while I'm driving down the road?

    NO, there is no video, just audio when a DVD is playing while the parking brake is not engaged.
    [ Mark  Feb 17, 2016 ]
    A
    If the monitors would be set up similar to a rear entertainment system I would say yes. When you put the vehicle in drive, the dash screen no longer shows the DVD playing but a rear entertainment screen will continue to play.

    Is this unit compatible with blackberry phones?

    Good question.
    [ Dannell  Feb 03, 2016 ]

    Don't know the answer. If you have Bluetooth on the blackberry, then you should be able to stream music or make a hands free call. I recommend you go to a local car audio shop and test it out. Here in ABQ we have Express Audio and has all the latest model receivers including this one.

    I can't really answer that since we use I-phones. It's possible the Pandora app will work but I cant be 100% on that. The product detail/spec sheet should tell you. Thanks

    [ Martin  Dec 30, 2015 ]

    The manual does not cover Spotify so most likely a mistake in the description. Nothing on the device screens show Spotify. Pandora is available as stated in details and manual.
    [ John E.  Dec 30, 2015 ]
    A
    It plays music via apps over Bluetooth (i.e. your phone, tablet). I do not have Spotify, but I play Pandora just fine, as well as music that I have stored on my phone. Also, this unit has the ability to pair two phones to it at once, so if you are streaming music and your passenger gets a call it will still ring over the headset.
