JVC Smart Music Control (for Android): The free
JVC Smart Music Control app for Android (OS 2.2+) from Google Play is two
applications in one for the JVC KD-X250BT. It acts as a remote control via
Bluetooth with gesture and voice command for the JVC head unit; plus provides an
advanced music player for playback of music files stored on your Android when
connected to the JVC head unit via USB.
- Remote Control: The
JVC Smart Music Control app connects and controls the JVC head unit
via Bluetooth like a wireless remote control. This application can display
the JVC receiver's source information on the Android smartphone's screen,
and enables you to perform operations of the JVC head unit from your
compatible Android device via gesture or voice command. The JVC Smart Report
App lets you use finger gesture commands on your Android smartphone to
control the playback of the JVC head unit. This type of gesture control is
designed to operate the JVC head unit from your smartphone without having to
look at your smartphone. Gesture control operations include Finger tap,
Finger hold, Finger click, Finger swipe (right/left/up/down), and Finger
curve (right/left/up/down). Voice command with proximity sensor
automatically activates voice recognition when you hold your compatible
smartphone up to your mouth, so you can speak music playback commands into
the phone. Your Android smartphone must support Bluetooth SPP.
- Music Player:
By connecting the JVC digital media receiver via USB to an Android smartphone that has
the JVC Smart Music Control app installed, it allows you to list and search
all of the songs stored inside the smartphone from the receiver by artist
name or album name. The JVC Smart Music Control app also analyzes all of
your songs that are in your Android smartphone, and creates a playlist
according to your mood. Once the application has completed the analysis of
the songs, simply move the on-screen "mood ball" to your current mood, and
this application will generate a list of songs that most fits your mood.
Your compatible Android smartphone must be recognized as a USB mass storage
class device; not compatible with MTP protocol.
Drive Change Mode (for BlackBerry): The JVC receiver's USB
port also supports playback from BlackBerry smartphones (via USB mass storage
mode). JVC's Drive Change Mode lets you connect your BlackBerry smartphone (that
