Gateway to your media

This receiver also offers the ability to connect four cameras, which can help integrate factory and aftermarket cameras. Multi-user Bluetooth® options, high-res music capability, and deep sound-sculpting tools make for a great electronic driving companion. 

Let's talk video

This receiver's big screen plays crisp, bright video content when you're parked. When you're on the road, you can entertain your passengers by sending a movie from the receiver to a rear-seat screen while its dual-zone capability still lets you listen to your tunes up front. You can use four dedicated camera inputs for backup cameras, front-dash cameras, and even side-view cameras in select vehicles.

Screen mirroring

There are also options to "mirror" your Android™ or iPhone® display directly on the touchscreen display. JVC also provides an electronic angle adjustment for the display, so you can tailor the screen's contrast for the best viewing in your vehicle's dash location — all without physically moving the display.

And then link your smartphone

Using this JVC's wireless connection, your smartphone links right up and you're ready to roll with all the voice-control wonderfulness that Android Auto and Apple CarPlay bring to driving. (Find out more at www.android.com/auto and www.apple.com/ios/carplay.) In addition, the KW-V960BW offers wireless screen mirroring for select Android phones, which lets you select apps directly from the JVC touchscreen. iPhone® users, you can plug into one of the USB ports and mirror your iOS display.

And when your phone needs some juice, plug it in, and you'll still get access to all your navigation, phone calls, weather, text messages, and music through simple controls and voice commands you're familiar with — all while your battery charges. If you prefer to stay wireless and you have a compatible phone, you can also charge up with a wireless Qi charger.

JVC KW-V960BW DVD receiver

Like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto provides really useful apps like Google Maps.

Bluetooth means wireless convenience

Since yours is probably not the only phone used in your vehicle, the KW-V960BW enables you to pair two Bluetooth-equipped phones and quickly switch between them for hands-free calling. And when you're streaming audio, JVC's Streaming DJ feature lets you pair five phones so everybody can pick their tunes for the ultimate road trip playlist. Load up the JVC Remote app on your phone, and passengers can control some basic functions on this receiver wirelessly. This JVC also includes LDAC, which means you can stream high-res sound via Bluetooth using select Android phones.

Looking for some music?

Into your high-res music library? This receiver will play high-res music files stored on a USB drive. And if you listen Internet radio on your iPhone or Android, you'll appreciate playing music from Pandora and Spotify on this receiver. Using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto will open up even more music apps for you, as well. If you're looking for radio stations that won't fade away, add a SiriusXM tuner to this Kenwood to enjoy satellite radio's deep programming from coast to coast. 

Expand and tweak

For those who like to tone their sound, JVC included a 13-band equalizer with a built-in digital signal processor. You can also use the built-in time alignment adjust the timing of sound to your system's speakers to make sure you're center stage for all your music. JVC's K2 technology helps improve the sound of digital music files with lower bit rates. The KW-V960BW also includes three pairs of 5-volt RCA preamp outputs that provide an ultra-clean signal when you add amplifiers to your system.

iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras

The KW-V960BW offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included). In a wide selection of vehicles, this module lets you keep factory features that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You'll also be able to check out engine performance data and other vehicle info on the JVC's screen, even radar info from a compatible detector. 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.
