For the safety-minded, a dedicated input on the rear panel accepts an optional rear-view camera.

Sound options

Good sound starts with a powerful built-in amplifier, with a 7-band equalizer on tap for tone shaping. For the extra "wow" factor, try out the surround sound effects that alter the sound field with options like concert, church, live, and more.

    Function wise it is ok, fairly user friendly. The issue we are having is 4 times now it has done a full factory reset on its own which loses all presets and settings. One other small critique is the screen is hard to read in sunlight. While my rating for the head unit is 3 star, I give Crutchfield 5 stars for the support they gave on an install issue with the steering wheel control module as well as with this reset issue I have been working with them on.

    Pros: Pretty user friendly to work with and Crutchfield is top notch. Highly recommend them going the pre-wire for you, saves a ton of time.

    Cons: Factory resets on its own and loses all settings. Screen is a little hard to read in sunlight.

    A cool, cheap Alternative...

    Crutchfield customer from Washington, DC on 7/16/2019

    2009 Toyota Camry

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

    Bought the Jensen as a cheap replacement for my wife's factory camry stereo, which had gained some sort of electric short. She was happy with the system and its features... It was definitely better than the factory stereo that was there before.

    Pros: Cheap, bluetooth, aux, cd, radio, usb slot, connections for video, back up camera... options to change the backgrounds and lighting.

    Cons: The touchscreen can be something to desire but once you figure how exactly to touch the screen its a breeze for the most part, the intructions on how to install are kind of vague.

    Good sound, but...

    Sound is good, but I don't like that you have to select the Bluetooth option to play music every time you start your car, most stereos start playing music if you had your phone connected to it before you turn off your vehicle. Also, when you connect your phone with the usb cable option the sound starts cutting off every few seconds, it maybe that this one was defective not sure but I'm thinking to make a claim for return.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    Crutchfield customer from Columbia, MO on 7/7/2019

    2008 Honda Odyssey

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

    Received the radio quickly. Took a few days for me to get around to installing. When I read thru the installation instructions which were supposed to be specific to my vehicle, I was disappointed. Basic instructions were all that was included. I called the tech line, but it took multiple calls to determine the correct wiring configuration. After what seemed endless calls, I finally got the steering wheel control connected. The control functioned, but was not controlling the right mode or feature. The tech on the line tried to help with the axxess control, but could not make the unit funcion as designed. I called the axxess tech, and even though he was a bit short on customer skills, one time thru the set up, and he had the steering wheel control functioning. One complaint is that the display is very hard to read in sunlight or daytime conditions. Another is that no owners manual is available - in the carton, or online. The info which comes with the unit is not detailed, and is of little help. Hopefully the unit works a long time, and no problems occur in the future.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    Crutchfield response on 7/9/2019
    We're sorry you had problems with your installation. Regarding the manual, many products don't include an owner's manual in the box. Manufacturers either include it on a disc or send you to their website to download it. However, one of our tech support Advisors, Josh, takes the time to scan the manuals for products we carry, so you can access them right from our web site. The first item appearing in the "What's in the box?" section for a product on our site is a link to the owner's manual. You can view it in your browser or download it to your computer.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    2016 Jeep Patriot sport. Everything works like it should. But the screen seems a lil flimsy. When you touch it, it's almost like an air pocket. Doesn't feel as solid as most do, or like touching a cell phone screen.

    Pros: Cost, features, option to install backup camera.

    Cons: Flimsy touchscreen.

    Decent entry level radio.

    Crutchfield customer from St Augustine, FL on 6/28/2019

    2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

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

    Restricted by fitment issues with my 2003 Silverado this radio fit without any cutting or modifying. It has a decent sound and I now have an auxiliary input which is the reason for going to an aftermarket unit. Backup camera capability was also a consideration. I realize this is an entry level radio and my only gripe is the clock display. The only way to view the clock is to turn the radio on and mute the sound which you have to do every time you start the truck. A standby mode would be nice. Also, the clock will not display while using aux. input. I found that it will display temporarily when you touch the screen. This is how I listen to my satellite radio and it would be nice to see the time of day at a glance without having to do something.

    Pros: Easy install and decent sound.

    Cons: No clock display when unit is off.

    Great Head Unit

    2014 Ford F-150 STX

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

    Great head unit. I highly recommend getting the harness prewired by crutchfield. They did an outstanding job making it plug and play. Even though I do not have a backup camera it is ready when I shift into reverse. I ordered a backup camera to install Sunday. Excellent master sheet. Super easy install in less than an hour. Buy the pry bars. I also bought the stering wheel control adapter and was all set up in the harness. The head unit has way more range then my stock radio in my 2014 F150. Love the touch screen an a easy pair to my phone for hands free calling. The instructions with the dash kit were also very good. DVD play is excellent with sharp picture and sound. Over all five stars.

    Pros: Crutchfield prewired harness. Great sound from head unit. Back up cam ready

    Cons:

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

    Great unit for the price, wiring was a little tricky (mainly due to my vehicle type). Looks great, easy to connect my phone to (iPhone 8+). Able to save 18 FM presets and 12 AM presets. Downloadable app to adjust unit from phone instead of using included remote. Much better than stock unit that came with my vehicle. Had a little trouble wiring, called customer support, spoke with Carl, was able to walk me through everything I needed to do in little time. Even gave me husband personal callback number to confirm issues resolved or remaining. Great product and service all around! Thanks again!!!

    Pros: Great sound, easy to operate, easy to connect device, looks great.

    Cons: Wiring in some vehicles may be a little tricky. Contact support and they will walk you through it all.

    Nice unit without spending a ton.

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

    I purchased this unit and speakers to replace my truck stereo. I am pleased with the stereo and speakers, performance is as expected, clearly a better setup than was installed in my truck from the factory. I would have like to have had better installation instructions, not doing this type of work much a little more detail would have been nice. Fortunately tech support was EXCELLENT, they helped me through all the minor details of the install. The worst part was the trim installation kit where it really didn't fit well. The trim piece broke during the installation and the hole for the trim did not line up with the unit,I did enlarge the holes to allow it to fit. The finish product was fine but it took a little more work to make it "sweet".

    Pros: Sounds good, looks great. I felt tech support was very good in dealing with me!

    Cons: Instruction could be better. Trim package did not fit well without some minor modifications.

    Jensen VX2529

    Crutchfield customer from Vineyard, UT on 6/4/2019

    2005 Toyota Highlander

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

    Overall it seems like a good stereo, a big improvement from what was in the car. The radio is crisp, people have not had problems conversing with me over Bluetooth even at freeway speeds, the volume is great, and the display is still viewable when direct sunlight is shining on it.

    Pros: Easy install Great sound Good Bluetooth and very good sound from the built-in speaker

    Cons: When turning the radio on it will not remain on Bluetooth if that was the last mode used. After connecting to my phone it starts an app on the phone then switches to FM. There is a noticeable hiss on Bluetooth at low volumes. The display does not dim when the dimmer in the car is adjusted or when headlights come on.

    Would highly recommend for this price. Read my review first.

    Crutchfield customer from Bronx, NY on 5/26/2019

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

    This is my review on the Jensen VX 2529. Really nice unit. The DVD quality of the screen is really nice. Stereo has Bluetooth with I link and I was very surprised how well it works. This stereo is an excellent unit at a great price and I would highly recommend it for a person on a budget. I've had it installed for only 3 days. I have only one negative thing to say, The Equalizer is not so good. But with time I think I can adjust it to my satisfaction. Sound quality is very good reception is excellent on the FM receiver. And and 18 FM presets and 12 AM presets. So far at 3 days it's a good unit and very satisfied with it. I would recommend it to anyone who is on a low budget and wants DVD feature and a backup cam. I do not have the backup cam but may look to added on later in the future. I am posting up to pictures of the unit installed hope this helps anyone who's looking for a nice unit for a nice price. P. S. Also it has five presets for the graphic equalizer. And it has several different sound fields. And you can also adjust the position of the location where you want the stereo sound to be effective. Meaning that you can pick front seat back seat driver seat or center of the vehicle.

    Pros:

    Cons: The only thing I can complain about is the graphic equalizer. But in its defense I have the unit only 3 days and may be able to Tinker with it to get much better sound quality. The sound quality is very good but seems to like a little Bass. But I think some minor adjustments on the graphic equalizer on the user preset probably will remedy this.

    Audio & Tuner Section

    CTA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the VX2529 are compliant with the CTA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs for the VX2529 are as follows -

    2V/6Ch Pre-Outs: The Jensen VX2529 is equipped with six 2.0-volt pre-outs (Front/Rear/Sub). The front and rear channels are fading, while the subwoofer output is non-fading.

    Note: This unit does not offer subwoofer level control or a low-pass crossover filter.

    Equalizer & Surround Sound Effects: You can choose between 7 EQ presets - Pop, Jazz, Classic, Rock, Beat, Flat, or User. In User mode, you can adjust the head unit's 7-band equalizer (60Hz, 150Hz, 400Hz, 1kHz, 3kHz, 7kHz, 15kHz). You can select between 6 Surround Sound Effect modes - Concert, Wide, Church, Live, Passive, or None.

    Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low and high sound ranges at lower volume. The Loudness center frequency can be set to 400Hz, 800Hz, or 2400Hz.

    AM/FM Tuner: The head unit features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, preset, and and preset scan.

The Preset Scan function allows you to scan through your presets quickly in the current selected band. In addition, the tuner features selectable North America and European tuning.

    AV & Camera Connectivity

    Aux/AV Inputs: The Jensen VX2529 is equipped with a front-panel Aux input that consists of a 3.5mm jack for connection an external portable audio device with a headphone jack out. There is also a rear-panel AV input that consists of a composite video jack and stereo RCA inputs that allow you to connect an external AV source device, such as a Blu-ray player, game-console, or TV tuner.

    Dual Video Outputs: Two RCA composite video-output jacks allow you to add external monitors, such as rear headrest monitors (sold separately). The video outputs will display whatever image is being displayed on the head unit's touchscreen monitor. This includes the warning "Video Is Disabled For Your Safety" when trying to watch video from a DVD, USB device, microSD card, or AV input without the vehicle's parking brake engaged. You will need to engage the vehicle's parking brake to see video from these sources through the head units' video output.

    Rear View Camera Input: The Camera Input consists of a Composite video jack for connecting an optional rear view camera (sold separately - see Accessories tab) in order to display the area behind your vehicle on the head unit's touchscreen. When an optional rearview camera is connected to this unit, the rear view image is automatically displayed on the screen when your vehicle is placed in reverse gear (green/white wire of harness must be connected to reverse light wire of vehicle). Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.1 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.

    Touchscreen & Remote Control

    6.2" Touchscreen Display: The Jensen VX2529 features a fixed 6.2" widescreen touchscreen LCD monitor. The screen has a resolution of 800 x 480p with 1,152,000 total pixels.

    • Display Off: You can even turn the display monitor off, while still listening to your music. You can have it set to turn off after 10, 20, or 30 seconds with no touchscreen or button operation.

    Note: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the head unit's yellow/green wire must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged.

    The unit has a microphone built in. No wiring kit needed. It's an ok system but road nose and air conditioning must be reduced to make your voice clear over it.

    If you don't have radio controls on steering wheel the just the basic harness. Hands free is built into the radio itself. I have a Jeep patriot

    Yes, it works in conjunction with your cell phone. Just use the wiring kit for your make/model vehicle. Mine is a 2009 Honda minivan that never had hands free calling and the standard wiring kit worked fine. I was very pleased to have the HF calling feature without any special eaquipment or wiring.
