Find your way without losing your wallet

Jensen's VX7020 navigation receiver delivers real value, sporting an impressive 6.2" LCD screen that gives you easy command over your audio and video sources. You can also incorporate your phone with hands-free calling and streaming audio capabilities. Add the cost of the stress you'll save by not having to worry about getting lost, and this Jensen becomes a worthy investment.

Take it to the streets

The VX7020 boasts maps of the entire U.S., Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands, plus millions of points of interest for when it's time to take a break. Lane guidance will keep you on the right path for your next maneuver, and you'll be able to see realistic depictions of many complex intersections that make them easier to navigate.

The VX7020's powered by iGO primo navigation software, which has become an industry standard over the past few years because it's fast, accurate, and easy to use. This stereo's compatible with Naviextras, which allows you to download maps for other countries, including points of interest, through their website.

Bluetooth® calling and music streaming

This Jensen offers Bluetooth connectivity, so you'll be able to make and take calls using your compatible phone through the stereo. Built-in A2DP technology allows you to stream music from your smartphone through this receiver, and gives you control over the music on your Android™ phone or iPhone®.

If you've got Pandora Internet radio on your iPhone®, you can control it through the VX7020's interface when connected.

Sonic solutions

This receiver will play all your CDs and DVDs, including discs loaded with music files, while front and rear A/V inputs offer connections for more audio/video sources. Go ahead and load up your iPod® or thumb drive with tunes for your travels — the receiver's front USB port provides convenient access.

When you're parked, you can enjoy movies from DVDs or other video sources on the receiver's display, and you can add Jensen's optional jLinkUSB cable to view iPod video content. Jensen includes a wireless remote control, allowing your passengers to pick the playlist.

Expand your system

Why struggle with stations fading away as you travel? You can hook up a satellite radio tuner (not included) to this receiver and access the wide variety of entertainment, sports, news, and commercial-free music satellite radio provides — your favorite stations are always there and, even better, you can view the channel art on the big screen. You can also connect a rear-view camera, so you can see more of what's behind your vehicle when getting in and out of tight spots. If you're looking to add subs and amps, you can take advantage of front, rear, and subwoofer preamp outputs.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

The Jensen VX7020 offers built-in steering wheel remote compatibility for vehicles with non-CAN bus steering wheel control interfaces, but you will have to hard-wire the steering-wheel control wires of the stereo's harness to your vehicle's wiring. You can configure the steering wheel remote commands from the VX7020's touchscreen. For most cars with CAN bus steering wheel control interfaces, you'll need an adapter to retain steering wheel controls. Check “Details” for more information, and the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters. If you're not sure if you need an adapter, call, chat, or email an Advisor for help determining what you'll need for your vehicle.

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.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Touchscreen & Remote Control

    6.2" Touchscreen Display: The Jensen VX7020 features a fixed 6.2" widescreen touchscreen LCD monitor. The screen has a resolution of 800 x RGB (3) x 480 with 1,152,000 total pixels. This unit has touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics, making menu navigation easy. The Jensen VX7020 offers a variety of display adjustments to customize the display.

    • UI Colors: You can adjust the colors of the on-screen menu's touchscreen buttons from Green, Red, Amber, Blue, or Purple.
    • Background Skins: You can choose from five different background skins - Engine Start, Blue Haze, Green Cubes, Red Swirl or Tribal.
    • Brightness: The unit's LCD backlight can be adjusted to Night, Dark, Normal, or Bright.
    • Picture Adjustment: When watching a video, you can adjust the touchscreen display's brightness, contrast, saturation, and hue (from 1-20).
    Note: You can select English, French, or Spanish for the unit's on-screen menu display.

    Start-Up Time: The Jensen VX7020 will turn on to the last source selected. The unit has start-up time of approximately 12.95 seconds from OFF to the last Source selected.

    Clock & Date Display: The navigation receiver offers a 12- or 24-hour clock display which is visible from any source or menu screen. The clock & date are both visible on the main menu screen only.

    Hard-Key Controls: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons and a rotary-dial along the left edge of the screen. 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).

    Parking Brake Detection: 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 pink wire must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged.

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

    • IR Remote Control: The head unit comes supplied with a 44-button IR remote control which provides wireless operation of the Jensen navigation receiver; including Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming functions.
    • Optional Steering Wheel Control Interface: The unit features a SWC (steering wheel control) input and is compatible with Steering Wheel Control Adapters from PAC (sold separately), so you can keep your vehicle's factory steering wheel radio controls.

    2-DIN Chassis: The Jensen VX7020 has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double-DIN"), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets. There is no mounting-sleeve for Euro-mount vehicles.

    Onboard Navigation

    iGO Primo & TomTom Navigation: The Jensen VX7020 contains map coverage of the United States (all 50 states) and Puerto Rico with over 11,000,000 points-of-interests from TomTom; all stored on a pre-installed 4GB SDHC memory card (the SDHC map card must remained installed in order for navigation system to function). The map database was created using high-resolution aerial and land based data collection. The VX7020 employs iGO primo navigation software for turn-by-turn visual and voice assistance to your selected destination. The software quickly calculates step-by-step directions to any destination available on the included on-screen navigation map.

    Note: Car navigation maps are frequently updated. While the database was judged to be as accurate as possible at the time of its release, a map database can never be 100% accurate. Road information that is maintained in the map databases, such as turn restrictions or road names may change over time.

    Map Updates: iGO offers periodic updates for data such as roads, new addresses, and other navigational information that will keep the Jensen navigation system up to date and provide the best possible experience. For updates and add-on options, please visit www.naviextras.com (requires Windows XP or newer). A free program called "Toolbox" can be downloaded from this website so you can create a copy of your map as a backup, as well as assist in easily checking for updates and optional features that are available.

    Note: You have 30 days from purchase to download the latest available map free of charge.

    GPS Receiver & Antenna: The Jensen VX7020 features a built-in SiRFprima GPS receiver and includes an external GPS antenna which determines vehicle speed and heading changes, along with longitude and latitude information, to accurately determine vehicle heading and position on the system's digital map. The GPS antenna can be mounted inside or outside of the vehicle. The GPS antenna measures 1.5625" (w) x 0.625" (h) x 1.9375" (d); with a 10' cable.

    Note: The navigation receiver took approximately 12.07 seconds to calculate directions from Virginia to California. It only took 8.25 seconds to calculate directions from Virginia to Maryland. These tests were done inside the Crutchfield Lab of the Crutchfield Head Quarters. Results will vary based on length of calculated route and your surrounding area.

    On-Screen Map: The unit's on-screen map shows your vehicle's current position (a blue arrow by default), the recommended route (an orange line), the surrounding map area, and your destination as a checkered flag. The on-screen map shows streets, roads, and highways in a way that is similar to how a paper road map show them. A road's width and colors corresponds to their importance, so you can easily tell a freeway from a small street. When navigating a route, the top section of the map screen shows information about your next route maneuver and the next street or the next city/town. When approaching a turn, the map screen will zoom in and raise the view angle to let you easily recognize your maneuver at the next junction. If the next turn is at a distance, it will zoom out and lower the view angle to be flat so you can see the road in front of you. The map also displays data; such as the posted speed limit, your current speed, current time, distance to your destination, time left before you reach your destination, and your arrival time.

    • 2D Map Mode: The Jensen VX7020 allows you to view its on-screen map in a 2D (two-dimensional) view only. Similar to paper road maps, the 2D mode, shows you streets, roads, and elevation by color.
    • Color Mode: The navigation map screen uses different color themes (Day/Night) during the day and during the night for both the map and the menu screen. Daytime colors are similar to paper road maps, and the menus are bright. The nigh color themes use dark colors for large objects to keep the average brightness of the screen low. You can also set the navigation unit to switch between daytime and night color modes automatically based on the current time and GPS position.
    Note: You can continue to listen to a selected source while viewing the on-screen navigation map.

    Lane Information & Signposts: The Jensen VX7020's navigation map offers helpful lane information and signpost guidance, along with junction view.

    • Lane Information: When navigation on multilane roads, it is important to take the appropriate lane in order to follow the recommended route. If lane information is available in the map data, the map screen will display the lanes and their directions using small arrows at the bottom of the map. High lighted arrows represent the lanes you need to take.
    • Signposts: Where additional information is available, signposts substitute arrows. Signposts are displayed at the top of the map. The color and style of the signposts are similar to the real ones you can see above the road or by the roadside, They show the available destinations and the number of the road the lane leads to.
    • Junction View: If you are approaching a freeway exit or a complex intersection and the needed information exists, the map is replaced with a 3D view of the junction. The lanes you need to take are displayed with arrows. Signposts can also be present, if information is available.

    Audible Alerts: The Jensen VX7020 offers various audible alerts and functions to help you get to your destination safely.

    • Voice Guidance: In addition to graphic directions, the VX7020 provides voice guidance with turn-by-turn instructions (*street names are not announced; iGO is no longer supporting the text-to-speech software update on this receiver). You can select from English, French, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese audible languages. The volume of the voice prompts can be increased with increases in speed to overcome road noise. Voice guidance can be turned off if you prefer.
    • Safety Alert: This function can warn you when you approach road safety cameras, school zones, or railroad crossings (if available). You can also add your own alert points. Beeps or the spoken type of alert will be heard when you are approaching of these points.
    • Speed Limit Warning: Some maps may contain information about the speed limits of certain road segments. The VX7020 provides an audible warning if you exceed the recommended speed limit.
    Note: While navigating, other sources may be selected and listened to; such as AM/FM Tuner, CD, USB, iPod, & Bluetooth. The unit will mute the audio of the other source during navigation voice-prompts.

    Where Am I?: This screen contains information about the current position (or approximately the last known position if GPS reception is not available) and a button to search for Car Repair, Health Agencies, Police, and Gas Stations around your area.

    Find Destination: From the "Find" menu, you can select your destination by entering an address or selecting a place of interest (11,000,000 POIs), a location on the map or one of your Favorite destinations. iGO primo offers you several ways of choosing your destination:

    Destination Search Description
    Browse Map Select a point on the map for your destination by touching the screen.
    Address Enter a full address or a part of an address; for example a street name without a house number or the names of two intersecting streets. Or enter ZIP code only; this way you do not need to select the name of the city and the search for street names might be faster as well.
    POIs Search over 11 million POIs (points-of interest) by name, near you current location, along route, near your destination, or around a city.
    Favorites You can save your favorite addresses (like home & work) and POIs for quicker access the next time you are traveling.
    History The places that you have set as destinations in the past are automatically stored for easier access. Smart History suggests these previously used locations as destinations based on your navigation habits, using parameters like the current time of day, the day of week, and the current location.
    Coordinates Allows you to search your destination by longitude and latitude values.

    Route Calculation: The Jensen VX7020 calculates your route based on your Vehicle Type, Route Method, and Avoidances.

    • Vehicle Type: You select what type of vehicle you are driving, so the navigation unit can determine the best route based on your vehicle type (Car, Emergency, Bus, or Taxi).
    • Route Method: You can choose which route method (Fastest, Shortest, Green, Economical, or Easy) the navigation unit should use when calculating your route.
      • Fastest: give a quick route, if you can travel at or near the speed limit on all roads. Usually the best section for fast and normal cars
      • Shortest: gives a route that has the smallest total distance of all possible routes. It can be practical for slow vehicles
      • Green: gives a quick, but full efficient route based on the fuel consumption data you provide
      • Easy: results in a route with fewer turns and no difficult maneuvers
    • Avoidances: You can tell the navigation unit to avoid certain types of roads along your calculated route, such as - Highways, Tolls, Carpool/HOV, Unpaved Roads, and/or Ferries.

    Detours & Alternatives: You can select "Route Alternative" to see the turn-list and map screen of four routes (Fastest/Shortest/Economical/Easy) with the selected route planning parameters, giving you the option to select which route to take. You can also choose to Detour around the road ahead, avoid a specific road, or around a section of the route.

    Router Planner: The Route Planner feature lets you built your route using the list of destinations you have chosen. You can modify the list as you like (adding or removing a destination (waypoint), changing a final destination, or setting a new starting position.

    Itinerary w/ Route Simulation: The Itinerary page displays turn-by-turn instructions for your entire route and the distance between turns. You can preview all the route information and simulate travel along a projected route.

    Automatic Route Recalculation: The unit will automatically recalculate your route if you stray from the navigation unit's previously calculated route.

    Trip Logs: Trip logs contain useful information about your trip. Trip logs can be saved manually when you reach your destination or automatically along your route. Trip log data includes; Start/End Time, Avg./Max. Speed, Total/Driving/Stopped Time, Total Distance, and Min./Max. Altitude.

    Quick Menu: The Quick menu is a selection of controls and functions that are frequently needed during navigation; it can be opened directly from the Map screen. The content of the Quick Menu is fully customizable.

    Off-Road Navigation: The difference between the on-road and off-road modes is the navigation itself. When you are on the Map screen with an off-road route, your position and heading is not aligned with the nearest road and there is no turn by turn navigation; just a recommended direction. You see a straight line drawn between your current position and the next destination to reach. The Turn Preview field in the top left corner shows an arrow with your bearing and the distance of the next destination.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The Jensen VX7020 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.

    iPod/iPhone Integration

    iPod/iPhone Connectivity: The Jensen VX7020 navigation receiver supports connection to either Dock-connector or Lightning-connector Apple iPods and iPhones.

    • 30-Pin Dock Connector iPod/iPhone: The optional jLink-USB cable (110JLINUSB, sold separately) allows you to connect your iPod or Phone (w/ dock connector) to the VX7020 through the head unit's front-panel USB port and 3.5mm AV input. This type of connection supports playback of audio/video content stored on your Apple device, as well as music and movies streamed to your iPhone from select apps. If you only require iPod/iPhone audio playback, you can simply connect your iPod/iPhone to the VX7020's front-panel USB input via the USB/Dock connector cable that came with your iPod/iPhone.
    • Lightning-Connector iPod/iPhone: If you have an iPod/iPhone with the new Lightning-connector; use the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device to connect to the head unit's front-panel USB input. These Apple devices only support audio playback of stored music and streamed music apps on your iPod/iPhone device. These Apple devices do not support video output.
    Note: Connecting your iPod/iPhone directly to the head unit via USB (using the cable that came with your device), bypasses the Apple device's DAC and utilizes the 24-bit DAC in the VX7020 for maximized sound quality. Using the optional jLink-USB cable from Jensen does not bypass the iPod/iPhone DAC, so you are limited to the DAC in your Apple device.
    iPod/iPhone Control: The Jensen VX7020 offers music & video navigation, as well as display of song/artist information and battery charging.
    • Content Browsing: You can control your connected iPod/iPhone from the head unit's touchscreen. You can use the VX7020's touchscreen to browse your music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Genre, or Composer. You can browse your videos by Movie, Music Videos, TV Shows, Video Podcasts, Rentals, and Video Playlists. 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.
    • Music Information: The Jensen VX7020 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.

    AM/FM+Pandora+SiriusXM Radio

    RDS AM/FM Tuner: The head unit features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, scan, preset, and direct tuning. The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible FM stations. FM stations with Radio Data System (RDS) service send inaudible digital information along with the regular radio program signal.

    • Preset Tuning: The unit features 3 FM bands and 2 AM bands with the capability of storing 6 presets for each band giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 12 AM presets (30 total). You can also automatically store the six strongest stations in your area inside the current selected band.
    • Local Seek: The unit's tuner also is equipped with a Seek mode that when used with the Local function, only allows radio stations with a strong local radio signals to be played.
    • Direct Tuning: The built-in AM/FM tuner also allows direct frequency tuning through the unit's touchscreen panel.
    Note: The tuner features selectable North America and European tuning.

    Pandora App: The free Pandora App (either from iTunes Apps or Google Play) lets you play music from the Pandora music service through the Jensen VX7020 using your USB-connected Apple iPhone (iOS 5.0+) or Bluetooth paired Android smartphone. Your compatible mobile device will need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, or WiFi. You will also need a Pandora music service account. The Jensen VX7020 provides control over the Pandora music service and displays Artist, Album, and Song information (including Album Art).

    • Station List: You can select Pandora stations from your Station List.
    • Skip Songs: You can skip song tracks within a station. You cannot skip back to a previous song. Pandora limits the number of skips allowed.
    • Thumbs Up/Down: You can give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down to help Pandora personalize stations to suit your preferences.
    • Bookmarking: The song or artist currently being played can be bookmarked & stored in your Pandora account.
    Note: Access to the Pandora service will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone to connect to the Internet. Pandora is not supported in Canada & only available in the United States.

    SiriusXM Ready: The Jensen VX7020 comes ready for SiriusXM programming. Thanks to its proprietary SiriusXM Connect port, you can add the optional SXV300V1 SiriusXM Connect tuner and receive more than 150 channels of exclusive programming directly from SiriusXM, via the "SiriusXM All Access" package (subscription required). Visit SiriusXM.com for a complete list of subscription options & channel guide. Additional features of the SXV300V1 SiriusXM Connect tuner include:

    • Channel list displays a list of all available channels
    • Category Search searches for channels in a certain category
    • Direct Channel input allows you to directly enter a station number using the remote control
    • Information such as Channel Name w/ Channel Art, Artist Name, and Song Title can be viewed on the head unit's display
    • Up to 18 SiriusXM Satellite Radio station presets
    • Channels containing unsuitable content for children can be blocked
    Note: A separate SiriusXM Satellite Radio subscription is required (operates on the XM Network). However, you can easily add this SiriusXM tuner to an existing Sirius or XM account for a Multi-Radio Discount Plan.

    Audio Section

    D/A Converter: The Jensen VX7020 is equipped with a high-performance 24-bit, 192kHz digital-to-analog converter with a multi-bit Sigma-Delta modulator.

    CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the VX7020 are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). 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 VX7020 are as follows:

    • CEA2006 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)

    6V/5Ch Preamp Outputs w/ Subwoofer Control: The Jensen VX7020 is equipped with five 6.0-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).

    EQ: The VX7020's built-in equalizer offers 8 preset sound modes (Optimal, Classic, Rock, Jazz, Techno, Pop, Flat, or User) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The User mode allows you to manually adjust the head unit's 10-band EQ (31.5Hz, 62Hz, 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz, 4kHz, 8kHz, and 16kHz) from 0-20.

    Audio Enhancements: The Jensen navigation receiver offers a variety of audio settings to enhance your listening experience in your vehicle.

    • 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 (+/-6) of the unit's source inputs to match the external source's output level. The Source Level can be used for the VX7020's Radio, Disc, USB, iPod, Bluetooth, SiriusXM, Navigation, or AV input.

    Programmable Turn-on Volume: You can program the VX7020 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.

    A/V Connection

    Dual AV Inputs: The Jensen VX7020 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.

    Video Out: A single RCA composite video-output jack allows you to an add external monitor such as rear headrest monitor (sold separately). The video output will display whatever video signal that is being displayed on the head unit's touchscreen monitor.

    Rear View Camera Input: The Camera Input consists of a Composite video RCA jack for connecting an optional rear view camera (sold separately) 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 (green/white wire of harness must be connected to reverse light wire of vehicle). Automatic video switching takes approximately 0.75 seconds. Audio from your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.

    Q
    Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
    A
    What an improvement to factory equipment. I used the suggested install kits and it all worked like a charm. Looks great. Only complaint is the GPS needs to provide audible turn directions sooner. Other than that, the sound is much better and I finally have great sound in the car instead of weak factory stereo. Having GPS is added value. Money well spent. [ Frank  Jun 09, 2016 ]

    I can answer for my 2014 version. Yes you can play music. After setting up the GPS for directions, hit the menu button to go back to the main screen to select your audio source. No it does not name streets. Keep in mind, I haven't updated my firmware and maps since purchase in 2014.
    [ WALTER C  May 30, 2016 ]

    Yes, you can play music through any of the available sources, CD, radio, Siris, Pandora, iPod, etc while navigating, the audio will mute the radio whenever driving instructions are provided. No, it does not say the street names.

    Do you have volume controls on the steering wheel? If so, you must have the correct adapter to connect the steering wheel controls to the Jensen system. Or you can just disable the steering wheel controls by not connecting them. I connected my system in without the adapter and the radio never worked correctly.

    All I can suggest is to re-read page 54 of the Vx7020 manual. Also look at page 49.... You must link your device to either the standard USB or the 3.5mm (stereo line-in) from your line output like your headphone connection.....

    Yes. It is the remote feed. When the radio is turned on a voltage is presented to this lead that can be attached to a power antenna and/or amplifier. When this voltage is detected by the power antenna and/or amplifier it will turn on.

    There is a blue wire for the Power Antenna ( 500mA max, current limited protection.) I believe that it can be use to activate a power amplifier as well. There is no detail information..on how to wire the unit...just a basic wiring diagram. I did not use this wire.

    Yes it does, but the screen quality is pretty poor. This radio, while cheap, is very poor and I have not been happy with it. Everything is slow and the Nav system is awful. If I had it to do again I would spend the money and get a better unit.
    [ Richard  Mar 11, 2016 ]

    Yes it does. You have to run a wire to the reverse. I found it easier 2 splice into the backup light. So when you put it into reverse the backup light comes on and charges the backup camera. Works really well. Good luck.

    Whenever I turn my truck off and then back on the radio station has changed. The memory isn't working. I checked the 12v yellow wire for constant voltage and it does. Am I missing something?

    TurboMike, My unit does the exact same thing. I shut the power off on my truck, and when I turn the truck back on the station I had set changes. It is annoying without a doubt. But it is a small con to all the pros of this unit. I suspect this is more of a firmware issue (software) more so than a power issue. If you carefully watch the unit, when turning off the vehicle, there is a slight delay of the unit powering down (some power possibly stored in the capacitors (electronics) of the unit.) right before the unit blanks out is when the station changes, so this isnt a constant power (yellow wire) issue. its internal to the stereo itself. perhaps a slight power spike causing the preset station to jump at the moment it goes offline. I personally haven't been annoyed enough with the issue to try and get a warranty repair, because I thought it was isolated to my unit, but now that you and possibly others are seeing the same thing maybe Jensen will provide a fix to the issue. FH
    [ Frank  Mar 27, 2015 ]

    Start by making sure it is connected to a constant power source, with your meter or test light connected to the source cycle the ignition switch to make sure the power stays on when the engine is started as well as when the switch is turned off. If there is a momentary loss of power there will also be a memory loss. You can also connect it directly to the battery with a short wire and see it it still loses memory.

    Does the navigation on this radio have an app that detects speed and red light cameras? If not, which radio does?
    [ jim  Mar 13, 2015 ]
    3 answers
    A
    This unit does not have "Apps" per se like some of the android based OS stereos, so therefore it does not have any sort of active mechanism to detect where there are red light cameras. The map data is on a micro SD memory card that can be updated through the Naviextras software. you get a free update upon initial purchase, and can get future updates through the website for an additional cost through Naviextras. the GPS does have speed monitoring notifications through the GPS software that can be toggled on or off. (I leave that feature off, as it can get really annoying as it will break into your music or media as you drive and go over the speed limit.) Hope that helps.

    It depends what you mean by navigation receiver. If you mean the receiver that you look at it's screen to see where you are going, it goes in the dash. If you mean the antenna, it needs to be able to "see" the sky so it can receive the satellite signal, therefore it needs to be on the roof, the trunk, the fender, etc. I normally run the wiring through the front fender cowling and tuck the wire into the windshield rubber molding and place the magnetic GPS antenna in the center of the roofline just against the top of the windshield.

    I am not a navigation equipment expert, but I have always been under the impression that it has to be visible to the sky. I installed mine in the center at the base of the windshield on the dash, ran the wire across the driver's side, down the under the dash back to the plug. Once I had it loosely ran, I used a hard plastic tool and gently pushed the wire down between the windshield and dash were it couldn't be seen, the tightened everything up and organized it under the dash. Hope it helps...

    The little black box for GPS reception, correct? My very car knowledgable friend that helped install the system had us install it on the roof, either drivers side or passenger's, whichever is easier to wire. He hid the wiring under the rain trench rubber, between the windshield and the side panel, through to the interior. However, I suppose wherever it can get GPS reception should work, clear view of the sky, so dash should be fine (for instance my phone GPS works fine that way).

    I am sure that it depends on the car. My car had navigation from the factory, so I placed the GPS antenna there. If there is not too much shielding, you may get away with having it hidden. In my case, I knew that location was meant to have a GPS antenna. good luck!

    Aaron...Not that I know of. However if you are using the navigation mode while driving at night it will automatically go into 'night time mode' which dims the screen and takes all the bright colors out so it doesn't bother you when driving. It will revert back to 'day time mode' in full color and brightness as soon as the sunrise comes. You can also listen to the radio while in navigation mode, so you're not looking at the radio screen (which has 5 different color backgrounds you can choose from for day/night eye sensitivity). So you have a good choice of screen setting in both modes. Hope that helped.

    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.

    Hi Corey, To my knowledge it does. I know that the maps have a "night mode," which I think is related to the headlights, but may be my ambient light sensor. It's a nice unit, considering the price. Read reviews. . . One annoying thing is that you cannot access any other function while on the telephone. Otherwise, I am happy with it, and would recommend it. Best luck! Peter

    Is there a way to remove the auto search button from the main radio screen? Maybe replace with something else?
    [ Jon F.  Jan 03, 2015 ]
    2 answers
    A
    I don't think so. This auto search seems to be a common feature with these touchscreen receivers. I think I have the same concerns as you,that someone else, or myself, might inadvertently remove the preprogramed stations that I set up. There is no good solution for that other than setting the radio to one of the other bands when allowing someone else to drive. Not really a practical solution. The second deficit in this scanning scheme is that when the preset channels get filled up the scanning stops. This often leaves you with no good channels and half the dial left unscanned. I wish they would come up with a software update to revise this design omission. I mess the old days of auto receivers that had a station scan, pre-set station scan, and a seek function. The general station scan is the safest and quickest way to find a station when traveling in a unfamiliar area. Some factory radios retain this feature but the aftermarket has give up on it. That is a real shame because is by far the safest way to find a station!

    The vx7020 that I have allows for setting the date and the clock time display of either 12 hour or 24 hour. The time that is displayed is transmitted with the radio signal from the radio station that the radio is receiving. I have also noticed that the time displayed on the radio is sometimes one hour different from the clock display in my vehicle. This has happened with a certain station depending on the day and time that the station is tuned in.

    Dear Jon, In answer to your first question: Yes, connect the power to the camera to one of your reverse light leads. Connect the RCA plug from your camera to the "camera" RCA jack from the head unit. My head unit detected the camera signal automatically, but you may need to check the settings. I can't answer your other question. I never tried. Good Luck.
    [ Jeffrey  Jan 05, 2015 ]

    I can answer the first question: to do this would require you to wire the backup sensor wire of the Jensen to something that turns *on* when you go into reverse, like the backup light (which is a white light on the rear of the car) you can attach a lead from the back of the car or follow the wire to the front and make the connection from there.
    [ Austin  Jan 05, 2015 ]

    You have to do two things for the backup camera: power the camera off of the reverse signal at the back (or front) and connect reverse to the reverse wire (I forgot which) that connects to the head. As for the m4a....I don't know...I save iTunes stuff as mp3.

    Hi Ron, I bought the SanDisk Cruzer Fit flash drive in the 64GB size and it works fine with this unit. I have two of these VX7020s in two cars and both of them recognize that flash drive. Another thing I tried was to use 320kbps MP3 files. The VX7020 plays them. Also, I tried putting over 10,000 songs on that flash drive in one or two folders, and the 7020 handles it. I think having that many files causes it to take a little longer to start up, but it works. I run it in Random mode and am enjoying it. One nice thing about the Cruzer Fit is that it barely sticks out of the USB port on the front of the unit. There might be smaller flash drives but I haven't seen them.

    Depends on what you mean by "work with Android Phone"... If you are asking if it will sync up with Bluetooth and play songs on applications like Pandora or I heart Radio, then the answer is yes. If you are asking if it will connect via USB cable and control the phone like an iPod or iPhone, then the answer is no. It will treat the android phone like a USB hard drive, and you will need to navigate to the folder where your songs are and play them through the stereo's on screen menus. Just like a USB drive.

The unit uses a 4 GB micro SD card to store the mapping software and you can either connect that to your computer or I believe use a USB memory stick to do the update. The downloaded tool also allows you to back up the mapping software as a precaution. Future updates need to be purchased and can either be for a 1 time shot (around $69) or for a 1 year subscription for about $20 more. I haven't had a chance to really use the GPS part as yet so can't say a whole lot more.

    I just installed mine, so I have only done the initial update. From what I understand, you get the first update for free (but you have to do it within the first 90-days of purchase - which I wasn't crazy about because I kinda wanted to save the free one for a later date) and you have pay for future updates. Not sure of the cost for the updates, but pretty sure it's less than the $200 you were spending. The website for the mapping program is naviextras. Hope this helps

    The first update is free after that you must pay. I do not know the cost of the future updates. To do the update a program gets loaded on your computer and you take the provided micro SD card from the VX7020 put it in your computer and the program will update the SD card.

    I believe you get one free update, although it is impossible to figure out how. I tried going through the process online and wasn't able to do it. I need to call jensen to ask them of the procedure. The gps is fairly accurate though. Doesn't give ETA like Google but gives you your speed and turn by turn is accurate.

    I believe you get one free update within the first 90 days of starting up your new VX7020. Instructions on the map site are not super helpful...after that, I think you need to pay for updates, but from the prices I see on the GPS provider site, it doesn't look like $200 (unless you are downloading maps for the entire globe....)

    It will probably work as the home screen has a selection for camera (App).So you will have to switch between camera and phone. I can't confirm that it will work as I use a wired rear view camera with a distance scale (Pyle). I am really happy with the performance and screen resolution of the VX7020. You can call Jensen support for more info.

    Yes, while in the navigation screen press the key in the upper right corner for your quick menu. You should have cancel route there. If not you can select and change that menu. So this would allow you to stop the route with two buttons. Hope this helps.

    [ James  Jul 29, 2014 ]

    You don't need any type of case, but you do need the vinyl trim plate that Crutchfield provides to fill in the stock trim plate that is customized for the factory radio (the replacement trim plate has a rectangular opening for the radio and a circular opening for the emergency flasher button). I did decide to send back the Jensen unit because of a couple of issues: 1) the FM tuner seemed to cut out frequently (the reception would drop off suddenly for a couple of seconds--this happened very rarely with the stock radio); and 2) since the Jensen has only speaker outputs (not pre-amp outputs), the speaker output should be attenuated with another device that Crutchfield sells (although that device is not strictly necessary). At the recommendation of the shop that installed my radio, I ended up swapping out the Jensen for a Kenwood DNX691HD radio. It is a good deal more expensive, but it appears to be a far better radio/navigation receiver than the Jensen and since it has pre-amp output, there is no need to worry about attenuating the volume.

    Brain, being a customer who recently purchased the Jensen VX7020, all I can add is that Crutchfield will provide you a Metra trim and bracket kit with your order...if one is made for your car. The Double DIM dimension is 4" x7" but is reduced by a 1/4" so as to fit against the face of the new Jensen along the edges. You should first verify that you have an existing front face dimension that is equal or greater then 4" x 7" Also Crutchfield will tell you if the radio will fit your car.

    It does have a dedicated rear view camera input. It will automatically switch to camera when placed in reverse if it is wired correctly. It will then switch to radio, nav, etc when placed in drive. I did not personal install mine, but I think different models requires different wiring. There is a trigger wire that must be wired in for it to switch. You can probably find info on this on the internet for the make of vehicle you are installing it in. I installed mine in a Nissan Frontier and that is how we got the info. Hope this helps & good luck.

    The SWC controller in the VX7020 will work directly with standard Resistive type steering wheel controls. It comes with a 3.5mm adapter that will allow you to plug into most brands of SWC adapter. So if you have a car that uses CAN/LAN/ or a non-standard resistive type (Mazda for example) then you should do just as Krissy states and ask an adviser for assistance.
