Customize the look and control

No more digging around menus for things you always use. JVC's Key Customize feature lets you program four preferred options and one favorite setting or source that you can quickly access using this receiver's big Function (FNC) button and the responsive touchscreen display. You can also set the look by changing up the button illumination and even have your lighting move to your tunes using the Music Sync. effect. 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. And if that isn't enough, you can also control this stereo directly from your iPhone® or Android™ phone by downloading JVC's free Remote app.

Choose your favorite sources and access them quickly using the Key Customize feature.

Bluetooth convenience

Bluetooth enables wireless streaming for music, podcasts, and audiobooks, along with hands-free phone calls. You can quickly switch between two paired phones — handy for vehicles with more than one driver. Many portable high-res 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 pick their tunes for the ultimate road trip playlist. Just remember to share!

Loads of media options

If you like radio, you'll love the options the KW-V250BT offers, including Pandora®, iHeartRadio®, Spotify®, and SiriusXM (optional tuner and subscription required). You can plug your Android™ phone or iPhone® into the front-panel USB port, and control the music in your phone while you charge it. The port can also handle music stored on a thumb drive, including high-resolution FLAC music files. And yes, you can still rely on CD playback and AM/FM radio too. The display will show DVD video when you're parked, and you can also feed that video to backseat screens you can add for your crew.

Deep sound-sculpting

Once you pick your music, you can zero in on that perfect sound using the onboard 13-band graphic equalizer and digital time alignment – a great option that really puts you center stage. JVC's K2 technology spruces up the sound of MP3 files, Bluetooth audio, and other compressed digital music with some unique processing. Since many car speakers are located down low in the doors, JVC's Sound Lift feature adjusts your music's frequencies to virtually "raise" your speakers for more natural imaging. Three sets of preamp outputs provide a clean signal for adding amplifiers to boost your overall sound.

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.

    Awesome head unit

    Rick from Summerville, SC on 6/2/2019

    2007 Mitsubishi Galant

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Ordered this stereo to replace a stock unit in an 07 Mitsubishi Galant that was given to my daughter. Install took about 3 hours as I also installed a back up camera. Shipment was very timely and radio really made my factory speakers sound great. My daughter was able to sync her phone very easily and now she is really loving it. Everything provided made install very easy and just like some others mention the display can be a little hard to see but it's the same with any unit if the light hits it at a certain point so it's really not a big deal breaker. My daughter's friends even loves the way her system sound and now wants their stereo upgraded.

    Pros: Great sounds Easy install Connects to phone easy

    Cons: None worth mentioning

    Tons of bang for the buck

    Troy from Portland, OR on 5/30/2019

    2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    This is a feature packed unit for the price although the user interface is not the most intuitive. I have had no trouble viewing the display in any light. There are two settings that have to be adjusted with regards to brightness. I had to spend considerable time adjusting the audio settings to get a decent sound (though it can't seem to output much bass to my Kicker speakers; will probably need a sub). With that said, I have had a few issues with regards to quality. The unit doesn't always pair with my iPhone 8 Plus and even loses the pairing some times. After ending a call, the unit goes to bluetooth audio regardless of which source I had it set to before the call. The H/U froze completely once and I had to turn off my pickup and start it back up to fix the problem.

    Pros: Price and features

    Cons: Reliability

    Excellent deck for the money.

    This is an excellent deck for the money. It does everything I want it to do without effort. I liked it so much I bought another one for my work truck.

    Pros: Ease of use and installation. Does everything I wanted it to do. Volume control buttons instead of a knob/touch screen.

    Cons: No off button on the main screen/unit. You have to go into two or three back screens to shut the unit down completely.

    Crutchfield customer from Kenner, LA on 5/22/2019

    2018 Chevrolet Express

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Great radio, had the volume turned up to 30 for hours and hours on a long road trip... no problems. Bought the JVC 6.5" speakers also... really boosts the sound. The cons are, it did drop or not connect to the iphone blue tooth a time or two. But turning the vehicle on/off corrected the problem. Hasn't dropped or not connected since the first few times it occurred, maybe the problem self corrected. The screen is a little hard to see in the morning sunlight but never in the setting sun. On the plus side, it wasn't suppose to be compatible with an older ipod I had, but it connected no problem.

    Pros: With the addition of the JVC 6.5" speakers, the sound is big and clear. The radio also worked with an older ipod that wasn't on the compatible list.

    Cons: Although is hasn't repeated the problem again, it did drop the iphone and/or didn't connect with the blue tooth several times over the first few days after installation. Since then, no problems. Hasn't reoccurred after the first few days and I've had the radio installed 3 weeks now.

    Lots of bells and whistles. I'm still understanding what all it can do. It's nice that it is customizeable. Works well with my phone and playing music from the USB port. Unsure if I installed it correctly but I am not getting a good signal with the antenna adapter, only getting a couple radio stations to come in and no AM stations.

    Tough install

    Crutchfield customer from Toms River, NJ on 5/14/2019

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The JVC unit is pretty good. Good CD player, Good Radio. Very complicated screen control. The install instruction were not very good, for the Hummer H2. 1. Getting to dash apart was a pain in the ass. 2. I was not warned that not connecting the Park Switch Wire would disable the steering wheel buttons. Also, no instruction on connecting this wire. Too late now dash closed up. It was one of the harder install I have ever done. Took about 5 hours. Your staff on the order phone was very good. Regards, Henry

    Pros: Good unit

    Cons: Bad instruction

    I've never replaced a radio before. Crutchfields technical support and this well thought out product made everything a breeze. Hooked up all the wiring, popped this in the dash, and everything worked perfectly on the first shot! 10/10 would definitely recommend.

    2014 Chevrolet Suburban

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    This unit is a nice enough unit and a good price point but it is far from a turn key installation if you want all the bells and whistles beware. I purchased all the recommended accessories to get the backup camera to work, the XM radio and steering wheel controls. I did get the steering wheel controls to work with the provided accessories. I did ask and was told it would work. The sales person was going by the product info so I can understand that. Still not happy. The tech support was good and this is where I found out that everything wasn't exactly as advertised. A nice cheap unit but you have to ask question (I did) but it still didn't help. You have to pull wires, after finding them in the vehicles schematics for the rear camera trigger and the wires for the camera. This is a major job and you need to disassemble a lot of the dash and interior. The XM doesn't work with the unit so I have to buy another receiver. To be fair the XM works but you have now control from the head unit. Just be careful.

    Very good sound quality. Takes a few seconds to turn on and connect to your phone but not too long at all. Good display. Don't like that you have to keep clicking the + sound button after level 15, but that's obviously in place so you don't accidentally turn it up too high. Easy to install and looks good.

    Slow

    Andrew from Elmwood Park, NJ on 4/16/2019

    2013 Subaru Outback

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    All in all it's great stereo with lots and lots of cool features. Giving it 3 stars for being very slow. If you have multiple folders on USB, it is very annoying and slow to browse. If you have folders inside the folders, it can be very frustrating experience. Switching modes is also quite slow considering the fact that it has so many of them. If you prefer switching modes from the wheel, you may need to press Mode button 10 times in order to get to the desired mode, and like I said, it's not fast (and it has nothing to do with aswc-1). Another reason for 3 stars is it's impossible to see the screen in a sunny daylight. You have to move your head and distract from driving in order to try and see anything on the screen.

    Pros: Has many excellent features Mic is very good and people don't hear road noise.

    Cons: It is very slow for 2019 Can't see screen in daylight

    I love this unit. It provides my old truck with all the technological advancements that were not available when it was built. The backup camera option is my favorite feature because I now no longer have to get out of my truck numerous times to hitch up trailer when I am by myself. The graphics are great. Easy to read and manipulate. Even when driving. The microphone is crisp and loud. Which allows Me to go hands free when driving. Overall, this is a great unit for the price. I would definitely recommend this unit.

    Pros: Bluetooth,Backup Camera, Sound is excellent, easy install

    Cons: None that I know of yet.

    Great unit for the price. I just installed it a few days ago but so far it does what I want it to do. Plays discs, hooks up to the music on my phone via Bluetooth and allows for hands free calling. I had to do some modifications to the dash kit to get it to fit in my 2008 Toyota 4Runner with this unit. I definitely recommend having them build the harness if you want to use your steering wheel controls. I had a couple of questions about the new harness during install and the customer service tech was very knowledgeable. He was able to look at my order and know exactly what I was asking. It made it so easy to install! Over all I am happy with my purchase and the Crutchfield customer service.

    Buy New Speakers...

    Crutchfield customer from Dixon, IL on 4/1/2019

    2008 Hummer H3

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Bought this to replace the stock Monsoon unit in my 2008 H3. This thing has a lot of bang for the buck. I have a different car app for my phone so I didn't miss Android Auto. The sound is great; there are a dozen different ways to tweak the audio for pretty much every environment, it has everything but a parametric EQ (and what it does have gets close enough). If you buy this expecting a fast fix for a crappy stock system, buy new speakers because it *will* show you how bad your originals are. Get acquainted with the settings on this immediately after you get it installed; just reading the manual isn't enough. It does have the quick-shortcut button that you can program but there are still a ton of menus. That's not a slight; it does a ton of things, and almost all of them are related to either audio or how to get to the audio. There are really no gimmicks here; the sound lift actually does what it purports to do, the EQ is one of the best you can get at this price range, physical volume buttons, everything "just works". ...except that absolute joke of a phone app. JVC knows audio. They do *not* know phone apps. Having one was one of the reasons I bought this and so it's also the reason I'm docking it a star; I mean the app is really that bad. Like, the 30 seconds it takes you to see its sorry 2.8-star-rated self in the Play Store? They didn't even put that much time into it, so you shouldn't either.

    Pros: Great sound, great price point, jammed full of features, no gimmicks, and of course the always-stellar Crutchfield support.

    Cons: Put some effort into the phone app or don't offer one. You're not doing anyone any favors by faking it.

    I needed a radio to replace a unit that quit working in my truck. I took a chance on this JVC, I'm glad I did! It installed fairly easily and Tom from Tech support helped out with a mistake I made very quickly! Keep in mind I only installed it yesterday, however I am super impressed with the capabilities of this lower priced unit. Blue tooth works very easily and the sound is awesome with my stock speakers. The touch screen is super responsive, and it is easy to navigate through the programs. I am thrilled with Crutchfield's customer service! Very satisfied!

    Pros: Great Features for this price point. Easy to use. Great sound!

    Cons: None Yet.

    Has the basic bells and whistles. Love the Bluetooth for my telephone as I did not have it in my 2010 Toyota Highlander. Looks good in my car. Crutchfield service has been outstanding as I had several installation questions. Overall no complaints as it is a good basic radio.

    2010 Ford F-150 XLT

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    This project started because I wanted a back up camera for my 2010 F150, and decided that I didn't want to have the monitor sitting on my dashboard. I wanted an double DIN in dash head unit, that played CD's, had Bluetooth abilities, and auxiliary input for my MP3 player. I have substantial hearing loss in the 3 higher frequency's and I am not any kind of "music junkie". After discussing my expectations with Garret, I selected the JVC KW-250BT. This unit fit my requirements perfectly, and even with my tin ears, I have to say it is a huge improvement over the factory radio. I mostly use a memory stick for my music now, and the only very minor downside is that it is somewhat slow when looking for a specific song to play. I did the install myself and found it to be very easy with the instructions that Crutchfield provides.

    Overall I'm enjoying the unit. I've yet to be able to utilize the USB drive features due to vague of lack of instructions on the particular topic. Produces great sound and many sound customization and features at your disposal. the blue tooth auto connect is a little inconsistent. I'd say 3 out of 5 times my phone connects just find. Install wasnt bad. wish had more options for home screen shortcuts.

    Pros: looks good great sound output abundance of sound control and customization

    Cons: bluetooth auto connect isn't consistent USB drive features proving to be difficult to figure out

    Function is difficult to find as the symbols are not standard. It self resets when not wanted and doesn't reset when needed. There are no home button easy links so when needing to change functions have to pull off road to give attention to functions and negotiate to desired function. Not very user friendly

    Pros: It does work

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I wanted to allow a bit of time to pass from date of purchase 030419 and install before a review. I received what I perceived as good value, timely delivery and professional handling of my order. I chose to order there discounted gear and while it was invaluable in the install process, there were a few dislikes. 1) The metra face plate is not quite a absolute fit / finish oem style look 2) The antenna lead I was charged for was totally unnecessary for this H/U 3) The directions emailed were insufficient 4 star review for Crutchfield. 3 star for H/U. What I'm frustrated with is the H/U it's self. Every bit of the harness was ohm and continuity tested as well as solder, heat shrunk & electrical taped. After the initial install the H/U seemed to have an inheritanly audible (only when actively playing FM radio) poor reception, almost as if inability to lock on to certain channels. USB connector provided an auditory delight. This to was short lived, as there was a ever slight distortion, coloring to all the cars speakers. Wanting to give this H/U a fair chance i ordered direct from Polk Audio a full complement of db6 series speakers & Metra harness' from Amazon. Installed those approx. a week + later. The hiss, distortion of the signal was still present. So, I installed Pioneer ts-t110 tweeters. I thought for sure this would get rid of the signal pre amp/amp discoloration. Nope! This H/U is either wonky, defective or adds an output discoloration of its own t

    Pros: It is easy to install. Attractive. Economical.

    Cons: The eq seems ineffective. The preamp/amp stage internals of H/U high level output seems cold & lifeless. The radio reception is dodgy on this H/U I received. Overall I'm disappointed with the purchase. Lol! After installing this much stuff in my car it should be a absolute joy to listen to but nope. I'm running only the H/U stand alone. No external amp.

    Recently purchased this from Crutchfield as a gift to our oldest son from our youngest son. Installation was a breeze with the installation kit Crutchfield offered. Put it in a 2009 Jeep Patriot and he's been loving it ever since. We haven't added the backup camera "yet" but suspect that will be a future purchase. Ordering this from Crutchfield gave us the confidence it would work in his Jeep and we'd have the proper parts right off the bat.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Many features, touch screen is convenient. Installed in Ford Ranger. The source options are great, I use a USB stick with MP3s on it. The power is clean, no discernible distortion, never seems pushed. The equalizer and sound options are tremendous. Only two complaints in an otherwise outstanding receiver, 1) The screen can be difficult to see in bright light, 2) making a circular motion on the touchscreen to change volume is cumbersome. I just use the +/- buttons. Highly recommend this.

    Pros: Excellent sound. Very rich feature set, options are very easy to find and manage.

    Cons: Display could be brighter sometimes. Drawing a circle on the touchscreen to change volume can be tricky, but there are separate +/- buttons to do the same.

    Once again, Crutchfield has not disappointed. Have purchased multiple units over the years and it has always been a good experience. Very satisfied with this unit.

    Pros: Superior fm tuner in comparison to the comparable Pioneer unit. Better DVD functionality as well. Touchscreen is much more responsive than I anticipated as well.

    Cons: Button colors are not adjustable, which I somehow overlooked before purchasing. Not an issue for me though.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Let me start by saying the Crutchfield customer service is the best I have ever received in terms of any buying experience. I bought this in October of 2018 so I've had a few months to use the product. I previously had a JVC head unit that would play mp3 files via the front USB input but would not play higher fidelity FLAC files, and didn't have the larger display or bluetooth connectivity. So my primary use for this stereo is to play FLAC files in the car via the USB input while having the convenience of bluetooth to make hands-free phone calls and the luxury of a larger touchscreen display. After almost five months of daily use, I am less than happy with the performance of this unit to play files via USB. First of all, nowhere in the documentation does it mention anything about brands of USB drives. However, the only drives that perform consistently for me are the plain-jane run of the mill SanDisk usb's. If I use any other brand of media, I get constant error messages, album artwork will not display, the device cannot be read, etc. When it does work, it sounds great. However, trying to find a song or album or even artist via the abysmal file search system will leave you pulling your hair out. Pair that with a display that cannot be seen on even bright overcast days, and it becomes worthless to try to even search. So the best I can do is to push the forward button until I get to the album or track that I am searching. Disappointed by JVC. 2 Points for 2 yr warranty.

    Pros: Sounds good.

    Cons: FLAC support via USB is hit or miss, poor file search, dim display cannot be seen on bright days

    Very Pleased overall, Installation and directions were great, also called and talked to your technical support folks about wiring, and very happy, just wish I added the back up camera as this radio has this feature, so I am looking into doing that next. Thanks Crutchfield...

    Pros: Customer Service, Price, Sound Quality both Radio Reception, and playing MP3 from CD as well as Memory Stick...

    Cons: Only one feature that I liked with the stock Radio, and one I have will my other Auto is the speed auto volume, that the volume increases with higher speeds and road noise automatically, as I am on the highways where this is very useful, this is a minor detail...

    This stereo is pretty nice! The Bluetooth works without a hiccup which is a nut for me and friends and family can hear me well with the included microphone. I haven't been able to use the USB feature but that is an issue with android more than the radio. My friends iPhone worked great plugged I to the USB. The only feature I haven't been able to use yet is the DVD player since I wired that part wrong and I am still in the middle of wiring up backup cam. The 4 stars is based on what I have used. It's a little slow but nothing major. On a budget I would buy again.

    Pros: Bluetooth sound Interface

    Wow. Bought a standard radio years ago. This modernized my 2006 Frontier. So many positives. It literally brought my JBL speakers to life and probably added 1/3 more cleaner sound and kick to my shallow mount Rockford fosgate powered subwoofer. The menus are easy to navigate. This radio is loaded with options if you dig deeper but has many shortcuts and options to keep it simple also. The display is pretty standard in this range and i have no complaints. The swipe gestures are super cool and a nice feature for both safety and convenience. The biggest plus is the strong clean power. The only negative and i already knew this is that I wouldn't have minded adjustable colors on the controls as i wanted physical buttons. I did add the remote control just to have. Spotify and Pandora work great on my Note 9. Spotify even has album art displayed. The stock Samsung music app does not so far. I also want to give a good mention to Crutchfield. Every single person should pay to have the wiring preconnected. Not only was it better than i would have done but there was a personalized hand written letter with additional information if needed. That actually made the whole purchase worth it.

    Pros: Lots of power Loaded with features Excellent prewiring by Crutchfield

    Cons: No customizable button colors

    Bought this for my 2007 Audi A4 Avant. Needed some help with a few extra wires, crutchfield rep was very helpful answering all my questions and the install was flawless. I got the model with the USB on the front but I really haven't used it much because the bluetooth handles everything I need with my Samsung S8; phone and audio.

    Got the JVC stereo when passing down 2008 Honda Pilot to daughter. She loves it. Ordered Saturday and received with wired harness Wednesday, and had installed in less than two hours start to finish installing Saturday 12/15. Strongly recommend getting adapter harness pre-wired as it saves a lot of time and adds minimal cost.

    Pros: Front USB port for charging Iphone. Works with Siri. Great sound and look. Bluetooth with up to five Iphones.

    Cons: None - great upgrade for 10 year old vehicle, should have done years ago for Iphone compatibility..

    Nice unit overall. Some drawbacks are changing formats or having access to the music sources. To switch from satellite to Bluetooth or other formats, you have to go back to the home screen everytime to switch to anything. The screen is rather bright all the time, even with the dimmer feature activated it's very bright at night. Overall good sound quality, individual touchscreen functions are easy to use.

    This unit has some power! Plus it has the ability for so many add ons that it's almost ridiculous not to have it. You can add a backup camera, xm, a gaming system, and so much more. I'm going to pair this with some aftermarket speakers and an amp soon, although the aftermarket speakers aren't necessary. I just got bit by the audio bug.

    It's been installed about a week so still I'm still tweaking the settings. Took the tech about 2 hrs with all pre supplied harnesses etc from Crutchfield . Got a great sound. Easy interface. Bluetooth so far quite good - quick connection. Sound amazingly clear most of the time. I'm happy so far.

    Pros: Good looks good sound easy interface. USB option nice though you prob won't use it much with the Bluetooth.

    Cons: Adjusting the phone sound and mic can be a bit fiddly at first.

    It has the features that I was looking for in a stereo and it wasn't expensive. I didn't want to pay $1000 for Alpine and I didn't want to go with an off brand either. Considering I haven't performed an aftermarket audio upgrade in a couple of decades, since my second hand 1978 Camero, you could say it was somewhat exhilarating going through the process and sourcing all the parts through Crutchfield. I couldn't have done it without their customer service team helping me get it all together. They did me a solid. I was looking for a touch screen, bluetooth with phone integration, CD Player, and backup camera inputs to name a few. I didn't see a use for Video and Navigation considering I use my phone for those things and since I don't listen to the radio I didn't see a reason to get a DDINN with the HD option. As I mess around with this unit for the time being I might consider those more expensive options in the future if I were to start spending more time in my car everyday. As another person mentioned there is a noticeable lag from when you select an item on the screen or turn the volume up or down. I would also pay for the Crutchfield pre-wiring service for the harness as well. It was well worth the money and saved me a lot of time. For the price I can live with it for now. I'm enjoying it considering I jumped up over a decade from the stone-ages of car audio technology to the modern times. Thanks Crutchfield.

    I don't give 5 stars very often and normally only for a flawless product. This head unit locked up once in the month Ive owned it, forcing a restart. They advertise it as safe with the added features but this happening caused a distraction. That's all I can complain about. For the price range you get a lot more adjustment options that you often only see at higher pricing points. It sounds great with more than enough fine tuning options. Display is a little Vanilla but not bad.

    Pros: Great value Adjustment options Lots of features

    Cons: Locked up once in 1 month of ownership, but restart fixed.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The JVC KW-V250BT 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 1.2 (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-V250BT. 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-V250BT without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. You can even pair your Apple iPhone (iOS 5+) by simply connecting it to the JVC head unit via USB and following a single prompt on the head unit's display.

    • 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.
    • Streaming DJ: The new Streaming DJ feature allows five Bluetooth audio source devices to be connected to the JVC receiver at one time, so you can switch between Bluetooth playback sources a lot easier and quicker. While "BT Audio" source is selected on the head unit, you can simply press the music playback button on your connected Bluetooth source devices to switch between devices and begin music playback. However, you cannot stream audio from two different Bluetooth audio source devices at the same time or combine music libraries or playlists from two different connected devices.
    Note: You can pair up to five Bluetooth-enabled devices to the JVC head unit. When an already paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units.

    Hands-Free Communication (w/ External Mic): The head unit supports Bluetooth hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. And thanks to the latest Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.6) with wideband speech capability, the KW-V250BT provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls. The controls of the KW-V250BT can be used to dial a number, answer an in-coming call, or end a call. The unit also includes an external microphone (with mounting bracket) featuring adjustable gain, so you can carry on your side of the conversation while listening to the caller through your vehicles speakers. 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 controls, or setup the head unit to automatically answer the incoming call immediately or after 1-30 seconds. The KW-V250BT also supports the Call Waiting function, so you can answer another incoming call while suspending the current call you are on. Your compatible cell-phone must also support this feature.
    • Dialing A Number: Using the KW-V250BT, 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: You can store up to 5 contacts in the memory of this unit for speed dialing.
      • Phone Book: You can download phone book data from your mobile phone to the DVD receiver. You can then dial a contact within the phonebook from the head unit's touchscreen controls. Your phonebook can be searched alphabetically or numerically.
      • 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 speak into the included microphone once you have activated the voice dialing function from the head unit's front-panel.

    External Microphone: The JVC KW-V250BT includes an external microphone to carry on your side of your phone conversation and voice command dialing. 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 and noise 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-V250BT 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-V250BT for playback.

    • SBC + AAC Codecs: In addition to support for the standard SBC Bluetooth audio codec, the KW-V250BT offers support of AAC. By supporting AAC, the KW-V250BT 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-V250BT lets you browse your stored music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, etc. Advanced music browsing is supported by Android 4.0+ smartphones and Apple iPhones 5.0+ (specific advanced functions vary by phone).
    • 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 (no album art) - 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-V250BT has the ability to access Siri through its touchscreen control and external microphone. Simply press the "phone command" button on the KW-V250BT 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-V250BT; 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-V250BT's front-panel USB port lets you connect your AOA 2.0 compatible Android (OS 4.1-7.1.2) smartphone for music playback. JVC does not guarantee operation with all Android devices, regardless of operating system. There are two Android AOA 2.0 modes to choose from based on what content you want to listen to and how you want to control it.

    • Auto Mode: The JVC KW-V250BT supports Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0), which lets you connect your Android (OS 4.1-7.1.2) smartphone to the KW-V250BT's front-panel USB port and listen to stored music and music apps from your Android device through the JVC head unit. You'll be able to control basic playback functions such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track. Other advanced music navigation will still be done from your Android smartphone's touchscreen. In this mode, the head unit will not display song/artist information; only "Audio Mode" will show up on display. You'll continue to view song/artist information from the Android device's touchscreen. 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 4.1-7.1.2) 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. You can browse your store music library by Playlist, Artist, Song, Album, or Genre. You can also control Play/Pause and Previous/Next track from the head unit. In addition, the head unit will display song/artist information. You can exit the JVC Music Play app to access other functions and applications of your Android smartphone, while your stored music library is still playing through your 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.
    Note: JVC does not guarantee operation with all Android devices.

    iPhone Direct Connection: The JVC KW-V250BT supports direct connection of your Lightning iPod/iPhone or iPhone 4S with 30-pin connector. If you have a newer iPod/iPhone with the Lightning-connector, you can use JVC's Lightning-to-USB cable (105KSU62, sold separately) or other Apple certified Lighting-to-USB cable to connect your Apple Lightning device to the KW-V250BT for audio playback only. If you own an older iPhone 4S with the 30-pin dock connector, you can simply use the dock connector-to-USB cable that comes with your iPhone 4S. You'll be able to listen to stored music and music apps on your Lightning-connector Apple device or 30-pin iPhone 4S through the JVC DVD receiver. Video playback is not supported.

    • Head Unit Control: The JVC receiver allows you to navigate your iPod's music library by Playlist, Artists, Album, Song, Genre, Song, Podcast, or Audiobook. 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.
    • Song/Artist Info + Album Art: The KW-V250BT will display your iPod/iPhone's stored music information including Track number, Elapsed playing time, Song/Album title, Artist name, and Album art.

    Battery 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).

    Android & iPhone Note: Using the KW-V250BT's touchscreen menu, you will need to indicate what type of device (Android or iPhone) you are connecting to the receiver and how it will be connected (USB or Bluetooth).

    It can play video on its screen; there'd be no way to download a movie to the JVC as far as I know, but I would think you might be able to connect with Bluetooth or have the movie on a flash drive and plug it into the front panel jack.....

    You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

    YYou must contact Crutch tech support with you vehicle model and year info. Pay 25.00 for Crutchfields unit hookup they make for that vehicle and stereo hook up. Your tv must be able to plug into aux plug ins on new radio. Usually an RCA WHITE AND RED LEADS.

    Im not sure. I dont see why not. You may need another aftermarket part. (like the xm tuner for XM, for example) I only answered because I know I'd prefer any answer over no answer.

    Q
    Why do some instillation kits have an amp and some do not for a 2011 titan with the RF stereo? They all show the Metra 70-7551 but some have the amp too.
    [ Chris  Jan 31, 2019 ]

    I think you may be referring to the Scosche SLC4 adapter. This is not an "amp" but it is recommended for the installation if the selected stereo does not offer at least two pairs of RCA pre-amp outputs for the Metra 70-7551 harness. This JVC KW-V250BT provides three pairs of RCA pre-amp outputs (front, rear & subwoofer) so, the Scosche adapter would not be needed when installing this stereo into the 2011 Titan with the factory Rockford Fosgate sound system.

    Q
    Is there any kind of stereo that will support my 2005 Honda pilot sub woofer?
    [ AZ Stripper  Jan 06, 2019 ]

    Hi Jerry. We don't carry any radios that will allow you to retain the factory subwoofer in that 2005 Pilot. It's not so much the radio as the installation gear (or lack of). We don't have a harness that will integrate the new radios subwoofer output with the proprietary Honda input on the factory amp/ sub. The good news is you should be able to add pretty much aftermarket amp/ sub combo you want to the new radio. If you have any other questions or want to finalize a cart you can connect with one of our Product Advisors here: https://bit.ly/2QNxGQB --Cosmo

    It seems to be a little weak in receiving radio signals. I also switch between radio and streaming and struggle with am stations since taking out the stock radio. It may be an antenna issue on my vehicle. Stock radio had 2 inputs the JVC has only one.

    It certainly works-why else would it be there? How well it works-that's another matter. Does not seem to be that sensitive to distant stations-probably need to be within 30 miles or so to get a dependable signal.
