Streaming music

The VX4024 enhances your car's entertainment system with built-in Bluetooth, so you can stream your music library or favorite apps from any smartphone. You can also take and make calls while keeping your hands on the wheel, while an outboard microphone ensures excellent call quality, even in noisy vehicles.

More media, more fun

The VX4024 offers plenty of entertainment options. If you're into your carefully curated Pandora stations, control your content from the touchscreen when your iPhone® is connected, or take charge via Bluetooth with your Android. The HDMI input allows screen mirroring with compatible phones. And it'll play nearly any kind of disc, while the front USB input lets you pull songs from your thumb drive, Android phone, iPod®, or iPhone. If you're into radio, add a SiriusXM tuner into the mix and enjoy a stellar variety of music, news, talk, sports, and more (subscription and tuner required). 

Plenty of connections

The VX4024 includes front and rear audio/video inputs so you can add on a portable audio player, camcorder, or other video sources too. For the safety-minded, a dedicated input on the rear panel accepts an optional rear-view camera.

Want to keep your steering wheel audio 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.

    iPhone (CarPlay) & Android Integration

    Apple CarPlay: Apple CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your USB-connected iPhone 5 or newer (running latest iOS version) with Lightning-connector in the car, while you stay focused on the road. Apple CarPlay takes the things you want to do with your iPhone while driving and integrates them into the Jensen VX4024. Apple CarPlay offers an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, view maps, listen to music, and access messages from your compatible iPhone through the VX4024 in-dash receiver. With Apple CarPlay, you can control these functions from the Jensen receiver's touchscreen or activate Siri for minimized distraction. Your iPhone with Lightning connector will plug into the VX4024 front-panel USB port and an Apple certified Lightning-to-USB cable (not included).

    • Maps: Through Apple CarPlay, the power and simplicity of Apple Maps comes to your dashboard; complete with turn-by-turn direction, traffic conditions, and estimated travel time. You can enter a new destination or choose a favorite or recent destination using the head unit's touchscreen or by simply asking Siri. CarPlay can also predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars. If you have iOS 12.0 or newer on your iPhone with the latest version of Google Maps or Waze (coming soon), you can choose to navigate via Google Maps or Waze instead of CarPlay. Google Maps and Waze do not support Siri voice control, but will have there own proprietary voice control function which has to be accessed through a touchscreen icon on the receiver.
    • Phone: With Apple CarPlay, you can use the VX4024's interactive touchscreen or ask Siri to make calls, return calls, and check voicemail. To dial a phone number, simply press the "Siri" button and Siri will ask you who you want to call. Using the touchscreen you can manually enter a phone number from the on-screen keypad, scroll through contacts, or select from recent and miss calls. In addition, you get access to your voicemails via the touchscreen or Siri. When a call comes in, simply tap the "Phone" icon to answer. You'll carry on your side of the conversation through the included external microphone, while the other party is heard through your vehicle's speakers.
    • Text Messages: Apple CarPlay also lets you enjoy a better and safer way of text messaging with friends and family when you're on the road, through the Jensen receiver and Siri. Through your voice commands, Siri can send, read, and reply to your text messages so that you never have to glance at your phone while behind the wheel. When a new message comes in a banner will come across the screen and Siri will read back the message for you. Text messages cannot be read or typed from the head unit's touchscreen to prevent driver distraction.
    • Music Library: CarPlay lets you access your music in your iPhone's music library, plus iTunes radio from the Jensen VX4024. You can browse your music by Playlist, Artist, Song, etc.. just like you would on your iPhone from the VX4024's touchscreen. You can also use Siri to find and play back your music. The VX4024's touchscreen will display song/artist information, as well as album art in the background. Tap the Now Playing icon on the Jensen receiver's capacitive touchscreen and see song, artist, album information with Album Art displaying in the background. From the Now Playing screen you also get basic playback function, like Play/Pause, Previous Next/Track, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Repeat/Shuffle.
    • Audio Apps & Podcasts: CarPlay also supports additional audio apps that you've downloaded to your iPhone for enjoying podcasts, music, and radio - including Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, TuneIn Radio, Slacker Radio, Vox, Stitcher, At Bat, CBS Radio News, NPR One, OverCast, & Audible. Control them from the head unit's touchscreen or Siri just like you would from your iPhone. Your iPhone's touchscreen remains unlocked during CarPlay connection, so you are able to access additional music apps and listen to them through the Jensen receiver; however these apps offer no control or display information from the head unit's touchscreen.
    • Other Functions: Within the CarPlay's touchscreen menu is a circular icon which acts like the back button on your iPhone. In addition there is an "Main Menu" icon which exits CarPlay and takes you back to the Jensen receiver's Home Menu.


    • Your iPhone will need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, LTE (4G), or WiFi.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone cannot be used while Apple CarPlay is being used with a connected iPhone.
    • The VX4024 also has a rear-panel USB port, but it is for charging only.

    Mirroring via HDMI (for iPhone & Android): The Jensen's VX4024's rear-panel HDMI/MHL input can be used to connect select Apple iOS (with Lightning connector) or MHL-enabled Android devices for mirroring and audio/video playback through the DVD receiver (requires your vehicle's parking brake be engaged). You can listen to stored music and music apps, as well a view stored video and video apps. The head unit's touchscreen will display the same screen which is displayed on your smartphone, as well as video (not always full-screen). Audio content will also be heard over your vehicle's speaker system. The following proprietary connector cables are required for Android or Apple iOS connectivity.

    • iPhone Connectivity: If you have a newer iPhone with the Lightning connector, you will need Apple's Lightning Digital AV adapter (sold separately), a Lightning-to-USB cable (like the one included with your iPhone), and a HDMI cable (sold separately). The HDMI connector provides the audio/video playback, while the rear-panel USB connection charges your iPhone device.
    • Android Connectivity: Prior to connecting your MHL-enabled Android smartphone/tablet, you will need to download the "Jensen HDMI/MHL Connect App" (available from the Google Play store) onto your compatible Android device. To connect your Android (OS 4.0+) smartphone, you'll need a microUSB-to-HDMI/MHL cable (sold separately) which plugs into the Jensen receiver's HDMI input, plus your phone will need to paired via Bluetooth to the Jensen receiver. New Samsung smartphones don't support MHL and select older Samsung smartphones will require an additional 5-pin to 11-pin adapter (sold separately). The HDMI/MHL connector provides the audio/video playback and charges your Android device, while the Bluetooth connection provides touchscreen control. Check here for a list of compatible MHL-enabled Android phones.
    • Mirroring and video playback from an HDMI connected Apple iOS or Android device requires that your vehicle's parking brake be engaged.
    • You cannot control your Apple iOS or Android device from the head unit's touchscreen; you will still need to use your smartphone's touchscreen for control.

    iPod/iPhone USB Direct: In addition to CarPlay and HDMI connectivity, the Jensen VX4024 also supports direct connection of select Apple iPods and iPhones through its front-panel USB port for audio playback only. The unit will automatically switch to iPod/iPhone mode when an iPod or iPhone is plugged into the front-panel USB port. The unit offers audio playback, control, song/artist/album display (with album art), and charging of your Apple device through its USB port.

    • Music Browsing: You can use the VX4024's touchscreen to browse your music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Genre, or Composer. You can also access a music track directly by using the head unit's touchscreen keypad. In addition, you can activate Random & Repeat playback modes. Newer iPod/iPhones with iOS 6.0+ will still allow you to navigate stored content and apps from the Apple device's touchscreen; older iPod/iPhone devices will be locked during connection.
    • Song/Artist/Album Display: The Jensen VX4024 will display your iPod/iPhone's music file information from stored music and select music apps. The head unit will display Track number, Elapsed playing time, Artist name, Song/Album title, and Album Art.
    • Battery Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. If your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.
    • Direct iPod/iPod mode cannot be accessed while the CarPlay feature is enabled. The unit will automatically launch CarPlay, and iPod/Phone mode cannot be accessed from the Main Menu.
    • The VX4024 also has a rear-panel USB port, but it is for charging only.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The Jensen VX4024 is equipped with built-in Bluetooth, 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 (Hands Free Profile), PBAB (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Multi-Device Pairing: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the VX4024. You can pair up to five Bluetooth-enabled devices to the Jensen head unit, but only one can be used at a time. When an already paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically connects the device and receiver.
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some mobile devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the VX4024.

    Hands-Free Communication (w/ external mic): The VX4024 supports Bluetooth hands-free communication from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone.

You can increase or decrease the volume level of a call, using the head unit's rotary knob on the front panel. You can also transfer calls between the receiver and your Bluetooth enabled phone.

    • Answering A Call: During an incoming call, the caller's phone number or assigned contact name will be seen on the unit's LCD and a ring-tone will be heard through your car stereo speakers. You can then manually answer the incoming call from the head unit's touchscreen. You can also set the unit to automatically answer an incoming call within 5 seconds. Any audio playback will be muted during a call. You can even reject an incoming call using the VX4024, so the call will revert to your phone's voice mail.

You can also make a call from your phone's transferred phonebook (up to 2000 contacts) using the Jensen's VX4024 touchscreen. In addition, you can use the receiver's call log (which consists of dialed numbers, received call, and missed calls) to make a call from the VX4024's touchscreen. If your phone supports voice recognition, you can even use your voice to dial a number from your contacts.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The Jensen VX4024 allows you to play back stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet, or audio player. You can control basic music playback functions (Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track) from the VX4024. Advanced music navigation will still need to be done through your Bluetooth mobile device. This unit will not display song/artist information from a connected Bluetooth audio device.

    Audio Section

    CTA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the VX4024 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 VX4024 are as follows:

    • CTA2006 Specs: 13 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Maximum Power Output: 40 watts x 4 channels (160 watts total)

    4V/5Ch Preamp Outputs + Subwoofer Control: The Jensen VX4024 is equipped with five 4.0-volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/mono-Sub). The front and rear channels are fading, while the subwoofer output is non-fading with an adjustable low-pass crossover filter (Off/80/120/160Hz) and separate level control (+/-12).

    10-Band EQ: You can manually adjust the Jensen head unit's 10-band EQ (31.25, 62.5, 125, 250, 500, 1k 2k, 4k, 8k Hz). Each frequency is adjustable from -10dB to + 10dB. You can save a different EQ setting or preset for each source.

    Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low and high sound ranges at lower volume.

    Source Level: You can increase the relative volume (+/-6dB) of the unit's source inputs to match the external source's output level. The Source Level can be used for the VX4024's Radio, Disc, microSD, USB, iPod, Bluetooth, Screen Mirroring (HDMI), AV input, or SiriusXM (optional).

    Programmable Turn-on Volume: You can program the receiver to turn on with the volume at a preset level, instead of the same level as when the head unit was turned off last. This prevents possible speaker damage or a startling surprise when the receiver first turns on at a high volume level.

    Beep Tones: An audible beep tone confirms each function selection. The beep tone can be disabled/enabled in the Setup Menu.

    AV Connections

    Dual AV Inputs: The Jensen VX4024 is equipped with AV input terminals on the front and rear of the unit to enable enjoyment of content from an external connected source. The rear composite video/stereo RCA inputs are ideal for permanent installations, while the front AV mini-jack (3.5mm) input will come in handy for quick connection of a portable audio/visual source.

    HDMI/MHL Input: In addition to iPhone and Android connectivity, the head unit's HDMI/MHL input can be used to connect almost any external mobile AV source with an HDMI output; such as a TV tuner, Blu-ray player, or game system. The HDMI input will provide video and audio playback. Your vehicle's parking brake will need to be engaged to view video on the receiver's screen. Playback functions will need to be controlled from your HDMI-connected device.

    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 can display a DVD, microSD card, USB, or AV-input video signal when its selected as the receiver's source, regardless if the vehicle's parking brake is engaged or not.

    Note: CarPlay, Screen Mirroring, and HDMI cannot be displayed through the receiver's video output.

    Rear View Camera Input: The Camera Input consists of a Composite video RCA 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 displayed on the screen when your vehicle is placed in reverse gear (head unit's green/white wire must be connected to the reverse light wire of vehicle).

This unit has touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics, making menu navigation easy. The Jensen VX4024 offers a variety of display adjustments to customize the display.

    • Selectable UI Colors: The background color of the head unit's on-screen user interface can be changed to Green, Amber, Yellow, Blue, or Navy Blue.
    • Selectable Wallpaper Backgrounds: You can select between five different wallpaper backgrounds for the head unit's LCD touchscreen. Choose from Kaleidoscope, Blue Haze, Green Portal, Industrial, or Space.
    • Display Brightness: You can adjust the brightness of the head unit's touchscreen LCD. Choose from Normal, Bright, Day, or Night.
    • Picture Adjustment: When watching a video, you can adjust the touchscreen display's brightness, contrast, saturation, and hue (from 1-20).
    Note: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source or mirror your phone on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion (However, you can use CarPlay without the parking brake engaged). In order to display video, the head unit's pink wire must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged.

You can adjust the head unit's button illumination from the following preset colors - Blue, Purple, Sky Blue, Aqua Blue, Yellow, Green, Red, White or Demo (scans through all preset colors). You can also select a custom "Custom" color that is adjusted between Red, Green, and Blue (values range: 0-255).

    Remote Control: The Jensen head unit comes with an IR remote and supports many vehicle's steering wheel controls (adapter required).

    • IR Remote The head unit comes supplied with a 20-button IR remote control which provides wireless operation of the Jensen DVD receiver.
    • Optional SWC Interface: The unit features a SWC (steering wheel control) input which lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel control adapter from PAC or Metra (sold separately - see Accessories tab).

    Yes. It works perfectly with my 2005 Ford F-150 steering controls. I had to call Crutchfield for some help getting the connections right. The instructions were a bit lacking, but tech support was great. Good Luck!
    [ Perry  Apr 25, 2019 ]
    I had to purchase the steering wheel controls for it separate but they haven't worked for me. So yes you can get them separate

    Is the front or rear USB port for CarPlay?
    [ Scott  Mar 11, 2019 ]
    9 answers
    The front only. The rear is for charging only. Should have been the other-way-around, IMHO!
    [ Matthew  Mar 23, 2019 ]
    The Front USB is the the CarPlay, which is nice for access, but i would have preferred it to be the rear one so I could hide the wires for a cleaner install.
    [ John  Mar 11, 2019 ]
    Front USB port is for CarPlay.
    [ Lance  Mar 11, 2019 ]
    Front usb is used for car play. Works terrific!

    If you purchased the product from Crutchfield, feel free to contact our Tech Support team. Our toll-free Tech Support number is printed on your invoice, and is also available under the "My Orders" tab in the "My Account" section of our website. If you did not purchase the unit from Crutchfield, then you may want to contact the manufacturer.
    [ Krissy  Mar 05, 2019 ]  Staff
    if you are looking at the unit from the back side there are multiple cords on the lower left side. One of them is dedicated for a sub woofer. if you have multiple sub woofers then I'm not sure about the procedure. Call Crutchfield and speak to a technician. They are extremely helpful. I utilized them many times during my install.
    [ Don  Mar 01, 2019 ]
    Will my factory SiriusXM tuner connect to this unit?
    [ Shawn  Dec 18, 2018 ]
    2 answers
    The Sirius tuner is built into the radio. All you'll need to do is attach the Sirius Radio antenna into this new unit. It is a separate antenna input from the standard AM/FM antenna. Hope this helps.
    [ Matthew  Dec 18, 2018 ]
    I don't know sorry
    [ JAMES P  Dec 18, 2018 ]
    Am I going to need anything for after market subwoofers?
    [ Parker  Dec 04, 2018 ]
    1 answer
    I would definitely use an amp to power your subwoofers. Subwoofers require a lot more power than any stereo deck can supply. I went with a powered sub in it's own enclosure to simplify installation. This deck has more than enough power for your other speakers though.

    Does this head unit support an OEM backup camera?
    [ Spencer  Oct 27, 2018 ]
    3 answers
    It should. It's just a simple video input. I doubt they make a special camera signal for stock cameras.
    [ Matthew  Oct 31, 2018 ]
    I don't have an OEM camera but the unit has two Audio/Video inputs. AV in 1 has a 3.5mm connector. AX in 2 has RCA connectors.
    [ Edwin  Oct 30, 2018 ]
    I was NEVER able to get the backup camera to work. I purchased a backup camera from Crutchfield, but was never able to get the camera to work. I had talked to tech support three times and after trying all that they suggested, it still did not work.

    Has anyone ever used for a 2006 class A motor home? If so how does it work??

    I just swapped out the VX4022 that came in my 2017 Coachmen with this. All I had to do was just plug it in as all the connections were the same. I love having CarPlay now for the maps and directions. Hope this helps
