About the Jensen CAR689

Entertainment upgrade

Jensen's CAR689 digital multimedia receiver upgrades your dash at a fair price to the best smartphone compatibility out there. And if, like me, you use your smartphone for everything, built-in Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ will seriously improve your drive. You'll see everything you love about your phone, like music, maps, and contacts, on this receiver's 6.8" capacitive touchscreen. If you use Siri® or Google Assistant regularly, you'll find that this hands-free control translates perfectly to the car. Jensen also builds in Bluetooth® to make wireless music streaming and hands-free calls easy.

Choose Apple CarPlay

CarPlay integrates your iPhone into the driving experience in a seamless interface, allowing you to access iPhone content with the sound of your voice. That means easy access to your music library, audiobooks, phone, messages, navigation, and many third-party streaming music apps, too. Learn more at www.apple.com/ios/carplay.

Or Android Auto

If you're an Android user, this receiver is ready for your phone, too. Android Auto integrates your Android device 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 www.android.com/auto.

Big on Bluetooth®

Bluetooth enables wireless streaming for stored music, Internet radio stations, podcasts, and audiobooks. This receiver also lets you take and make calls while keeping your hands on the wheel — an awesome safety feature when you're making your daily commute.

Bring on the extras

With a wired connection to your smartphone via the receiver's rear USB, you can browse through your phone's music files for playlists, songs, artists, and albums. And the CAR689 is SiriusXM-ready, so you can add a satellite radio tuner and enjoy your favorite music, sports, entertainment, and more anywhere you go.

Perfect your sound

Use your touchscreen display for system control, media info, as a monitor for a connected backup camera (not included), and for perfecting your sound. This Jensen receiver offers an 8-band equalizer, and to get more impact out of your system, six preamp outputs let you connect amplifiers to power your speakers and subs.

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.
