Our take on the JVC KD-X340BTS

If you get your music from a device instead of a disc, you need a receiver that's made for the way you play your tunes. JVC's KD-X340BTS digital media receiver features built-in Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, and an aux input, plus you can use a compatible phone to control whatever the receiver's doing. You can even add a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner (sold separately) and expand your entertainment horizons even more.

Made for the way you play

If you get your music from a device instead of a disc, you need a receiver that's made for the way you play your tunes. JVC's KD-X340BTS digital media receiver features built-in Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, and an aux input, plus you can use a compatible phone to control whatever the receiver's doing. You can even add a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner (sold separately) and expand your entertainment horizons even more.

Ready for your Android™ phone

Android® users can control Pandora® right from the stereo through the Bluetooth connection — no wires needed. JVC's remote control app lets you use your compatible Android phone's touchscreen to control the action using finger swipes and gestures. With your Android phone safely attached to a mount, you can reach down and skip a track without taking your eyes off the road. You can also control your Pandora and iHeartRadio stations usng your phone or the receiver itself.

Great with your iPhone®, too

If you're an iPhone® user, this receiver gives you more than wireless control — you get voice control, too. Talk to Siri® Eyes Free technology to make calls, choose music, get directions, and more. Anything you can do with Siri can be done with this receiver.

Experience satellite radio

If you're a satellite radio fan, you can connect a SiriusXM® tuner (sold separately) and start enjoying the wide variety of music, sports, news, and entertainment available. If you haven't experienced satellite radio, you'll be blown away by the incredible selection of music and more that comes with your subscription. Plus, you can drive all the way across the USA without losing your favorite channels.

Tune your music the way you like it

The KD-X340BTS plays MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, and even FLAC files, so you'll be able to enjoy all your tunes when you travel. You'll find a wide array of sound-shaping tools, including Sound Response to boost frequencies in digital files, Space Enhancement to match the sound to the size of your car, and a 13-band graphic equalizer. The 24-bit DAC brings the best out of your tunes, and the Volume Link EQ boosts specific frequencies in the audio signal to compensate for road noise.

Bluetooth® made easy

Automatic pairing makes it a lot easier to enjoy hands-free calling and wireless audio streaming, no matter what kind of phone you're using.

Expand your system for sweeter sound

The KD-X340BTS gives you three sets of preamp outputs, which really comes in handy when you add amplifiers and a sub to your car audio system. Even if you're not planning to do that right away, it's always smart to invest in a receiver you can grow with. You can also pair two phones at once, so you don't have to choose between the personal phone and the work phone when you're driving.

A charging connection

With your smartphone connected to the KD-X340BTS, you can listen to your phone's internal memory as one source and access its microSD card as another. You'll also appreciate the USB port's powerful 1.5-amp charging capability.

Want to keep your car's 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.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Installed this receiver along with 4 - 6 1/2" JVC speakers and a 12" powered sub. I am very pleased with the sound for the price. Bluetooth works well with our Apple devices. Easy to configure the crossover points to match with the speakers. Tremendous improvement over the factory radio and speakers. Adapters from Crutchfield were ordered as well and everything worked as it should. Great experience ordering from Crutchfield which allowed the installation to go very smoothly.

    If I had any criticism at all of this unit it would be the size of the radio preset buttons, especially number one is kind of hard to get to because it stuck at about 5o'clock under the volume knob. So coming from the driver side it's a small inconvenience but just something I'm sure I'll just get used to. Other than that extremely happy functions flawlessly.

    This is a great product at a great price. If you told me I could get Bluetooth, iPhone hands-free calling, Pandora, and play music via ipod or flash drive at this price point, I wouldn't have believed it. A very capable product with many configuration features to tailor your system to your particular vehicle.

    Pros: Tons of configuration options.

    Cons: Volume dial is not very ergonomically designed and "next song" button is pretty small.

    I was worried I wouldn't know how to install a radio myself. The nearest shop quoted $300+. The installation took about 20 minutes. Everything works great. My old radio in a 2005 Ford ranger was terrible and outdated.

    Awesome stereo, I installed it in a 2004 Jeep Liberty. Works great as all JVC stereos I have purchase in the past. I was surprised that the phone feature works better with voice commands then the factory stereo in my new Accord.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    When it works, it is fantastic. I love the Sound Lift and Digital Time Alignment features, and it makes the system sound personalized just to me. However, the receiver is really buggy. Most of the time, it doesn't recognize my phone when connected in the Android feature. Sometimes, regardless of mode, no sound comes out of the receiver except the beeps from selecting options on the interface. I have to either turn it off and restart, or in one bad case where it got stuck, factory reset.

    Pros: Sounds great.

    Cons: Buggy

    This replaced a factory head unit from a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The sound quality is very good for the price. The Bluetooth and Pandora integration with my phone is nice. The only downside is that the menu is not very intuitive.

    Pros: Good sound quality for the price.

    Cons: Menu

    Amazing Car Stereo Receiver

    Onesimo from Oceano, CA on 1/11/2018

    1999 Ford Contour
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This receiver turned out to be a lot better than I was expecting. I am not much for a tech guy, but this was very easy to put together. It defiantly spices up my old car. The features are extremely easy to get a handle on. For the price, you can't really get much better than this.

    Pros: - Easy installation (instructions provided) - Easy to get a handle on the features - Nice design - Amazing feature that changes color with the beat

    Cons: - Instructions weren't clear on how to remove the stereo in the future. Gave two slim pieces of metal that you're supposed to use, but cant figure out how it works. (Might just be me)

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This receiver has great power and clarity. Crutchfield's service is top-notch. I've ordered from them three times before and the car stereos are always easy to install with their printed instructions. This receiver is great in every way except that the buttons are small and the volume /select knob is touchy and slippery. So, I rate the receiver features and sound quality and style at a 6, and the volume knob and buttons at a 2, so that the final score is a four-star.

    Pros: Features, sound quality, easy install

    Cons: Slippery , touchy volume/select knob

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I guess I got a bad one. After a few minutes of being on, the display will stop showing channel numbers on Sirius XM. Only shows the name of the station, so you have to power on and of to get the channel numbers to display, and that only lasts for several minutes until another reboot is needed.Bluetooth calls dont work. Folks can hear me but I get no sound for calls despite being cranked up to level 25. Time/day display sucks, shows day and date huge in center of display but time is tiny down in the low right corner. Is the date REALLY that important? Anyway, going for a different brand, as the menus, even if this thing worked properly, are very kludgey and irritating to navigate.



    Great radio for the price.

    Todd from Cedar Rapids, IA on 1/2/2018

    2007 Jeep Liberty
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Installed JVC KD-X340BTS in a 2007 Jeep Liberty. The install went smoothly using the directions from Crutchfield. The Metra dash kit was OK but not as good of fit as expected. It is almost too snug of fit into the dash surround so the surround doesn't lay quite as flat as expected. Getting Crutchfield to preconnect the wiring harness was a time saver and I'd highly recomment it. The whole install took about 45 minutes (I had the factory radio out about a month before so that previous experience helped). The radio has great sound with new Polk DB 652 6.5" speakers in the front doors. BTW- It was decent with the original factory speakers too. I am sure my teenage daughter will figure out how to use all of the settings. The pre settings for the equalizer give you lots of listening options. The radio controls (knob, buttons and usb door) seem light and fragile so I am concerned how well they will hold up over time. It seemed to pair easily with her iphone but haven't had it long enough to see if it pairs easily every time. Overall I think the unit is a great choice at this price point and looks good in the dash.

    Pros: Easy install. Great sound. Great value. Equalizer has lots of good presets Radio looks good in the dash.

    Cons: Radio settings take awhile to figure out- not intuitive. Radio controls (knob, buttons and usb door) seem light and fragile.

    Bought two of these for my sons cars. Huge improvement over stock stereos. They even installed them themselves. Super easy installation with the available "ready-harness (well worth the extra few bucks. Do yourself a favor and buy it if it's offered). As per usual, incredible customer service and price. I honestly don't know why anyone would buy anywhere else!

    Pros: Huge improvement over stock radio. Easy install. Amazing price.

    Cons: None.

    Like the features this receiver has to offer, but apparently mine was a dud. Saw a few others with similar problems after reading reviews. There are so many positive reviews that it still has a great rating. Button illumination flashed wildly while driving down the road, had to restart it 4-5 times to get USB drive recognized again, frequently needed to be restarted due to locking up while using handsfree or switching thru sources. Bluetooth phonecall wouldn't play thru the speakers at times. Tried a factory reset and still has issues I listed. Returning it, great help from Crutchfield tech support in selecting another unit

    Pros: Many audio settings Button illumination highly configurable (even set your own color by entering RGB)

    Cons: Had a bad unit Dont care for the buttons, feel like they're too small and close together

    Excellent unit at a great price

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great little unit at a fantastic price. The factory receiver in my daughter's car was average, but did not have any features (i.e. Bluetooth, Pandora, etc.), and I would characterize the sound quality as so-so. This JVC receiver was a breeze to install, has most of the features she needs (and quite a few she will never use), and sounds significantly better than the factory unit. When you consider the price point, this definitely is a top pick. Highly recommended.

    Pros: Easy to install, fit perfectly, wide variety of features and great sound as compared to the stock factory unit

    Cons: So many features that will probably never be used; but, better to have them and not need them, than to need them and not have them!

    Christmas gift for many to enjoy!

    This is the first single DIN unit I've purchased in a long time. The menus are not the easiest to navigate. The instructions aren't any better. The unit sounds fantastic however! Still in the "learning curve" phase so I'll report back more later.

    Better than a advertised! The experience with Tyler was excellent as he pointed me in the right direction relative to product, parts and installation process. The product arrived on time. The installation instructions were spot on as was the total experience. So far very good in this 2006 Subaru Forester.

    Pros: Easy and straight forward installation. Works like a charm.

    Cons: non at this point

    I installed this in my '07 Electaglide with the Cruthfield install kit and iDatalink interface. Everything went smooth. I put this in with no external amp and it sounds better than the OEM head with a high end amp.

    Pros: USB memory for MP3s. No more CD skip! Songs load fast. Great sound.

    Cons: If I had to come up with a "con" then an SD slot would have been nice.

    Decent Stereo for the price

    Chris from Madison, AL on 12/10/2017

    2007 Ford Explorer
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Nice little stereo. It hasn't reached its full potential quite yet, as I have not gotten an amp or subwoofer yet, but considering this is not the first JVC unit I've owned, I expect nothing less than being satisfied with those capabilities. Bluetooth is a little funky sometimes but once you get your phone paired, just remember to wait a good minute or two before it starts automatically playing when you're on the Bluetooth source.

    Pros: Lots of color options 3 sets of preouts Bluetooth audio capability Bluetooth phone capability Included microphone

    Cons: Quirky Bluetooth at times Cannot turn off USB data functionality, if usb device is plugged in, it cannot charge without having the data functionality as well

    The unit fit perfectly. Only issue I had was the install because I didn't know the best way to install unit was to use the enclosed radio sleeve. Other than that I like how the radio fit and how it sounds. Definitely a sound update to my aging 17 yr factory radio.

    Stereo works great and received a major discount on harness, steering control, dash kit, and hardware. I will only be buying car audio products from Crutchfield as everything is made easy and you don't have to worry about being given the wrong dash kit or harness as happens with other retailers. Very happy with the stereo and the purchase overall.

    CD player? Whats a CD? Loved the price and love the functionality even more. I was able to pick this unit up during the Black Friday sale and I am very happy with it. Others mentioned issues with the Bluetooth connecting. I have a Samsung S7 and have had no issues whatsoever. I was able to changed the color settings so that it matches my dash which is a nice touch. Radio seems to be coming through clearer than my old OEM unit. I have a Kenwood unit in my other vehicle that cost twice as much, but I gotta say I like this JVC better. I would buy again, thanks Crutchfield for another great purchase!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    It works pretty well- does what it's supposed to, most of the time. I really like the microphone- it gives you options to reduce echo, external noises, etc., so it's a really clear sound on their end. I'm not a big fan of the set up process. The layout of the buttons to go back and forth and select are confusing, and I consider myself extremely tech savvy. If you hit the wrong button it takes you completely out of the menu. I don't like their default on screen display options. I wanted it to show the song title, time and date. Pretty basic. I figured out how to change what it displays (artist, time, date, sound bars, etc.) and remain one solid color (it can change between red, green, blue and colors in between) and once I think I've gotten it it changes on me again and flashes through different colors to the beat of the song, which I find distracting while driving. It also will sit and flash the track number of the song on the playlist instead of the name and I have yet to figure out more options. The bluetooth often does not connect to my phone and I have to select it. Either that happens or it connects and when I play a song it plays it super super fast and does so for each song until I restart the music app (happens on both Spotify and Apple Music). Frankly I miss my old stereo and will likely put it back in.

    Feature rich, but not intuitive

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is a LOT of car stereo for the money! It sports myriad functions, Bluetooth being the most important for me. Sound quality is excellent with OEM-type speakers, and you can get it plenty loud, but it won't reach concert sound levels cleanly. Still, for daily use, it's a GREAT upgrade from typical OEM head units. A couple of downsides: (1) setup isn't very intuitive, but that's a one-time aggravation & you're done. (2) A bit more irksome is the on-off switch. Quick push turns the unit on. A quick push does NOT turn it off, but switches function (to AM, BT, Satellite... whatever's next after what you've been listening to). You have to push & HOLD to turn the unit off. Sure, I've learned that, but every single person who rides with me screws up the stereo setting when they try to turn it off. If most or all users misuse a control, perhaps it's a design problem.

    Pros: Bargain priced Reasonably powerful Bluetooth

    Cons: Non-intuitive controls for setup On-off switch also cycles function

    Excellent Car Stereo!

    I hate everything about this radio. I would return it but I waited too long. I had a double-din jvC from 2013 that I loved. This radio stinks. The controls are small and bunched too close together. Every 10th time when I turn on the car the radio blinks CANCEL DEMO. then the only way to reset it is to remove the face plate and re-insert, sometime several times.

    Pros: apps available for remote control

    Cons: control layout is terrible menu is confusing and non intuitive

    Tries to be too much radio for the money. This head unit really swings at the fences. But at its price point, it just cannot deliver. The Bluetooth connectivity is crap. I have to mess with it every time I start my car...which is counterintuitive to the way Bluetooth is supposed to work. For all the audio control tho thing is supposed to have, it still sounds very lacking compared to the old Pioneer I was replacing. Sorely disappointed. ??

    Pros: Tons of audio control features.

    Cons: Terrible Bluetooth connectivity. Have to mess with it every time I start the car. Audio controls don't seem to do much. I want my old radio back!!!

    Buy the JVC KD-X340BTS if your Ford amp pops and stops playing.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The JVC KD-X340BTS, is a fantastic upgrade over the stock Ford Fiesta, 'SYNC' head unit w/ 80w 6-speakers. The Ford amp eventually starts popping and won't play music again until you turn the car off/on...really gets you mad to have no music until the next gas stop on a cross country drive. Music quality with MP3s is amazing compared to the stock 2011 head unit. The 'K2' technology actually works well to restore the lost parts of compressed music files. Thought it was going to be a joke or sound fake, but JVC has impressed me again. I am also liking the sound effects for both "Space Enhance" and "Sound Lift". Then set the 'Distance' to get the delays working correctly + 13band EQ to fine tune. Crutchfield is the place to buy, because if not for their complete accessory kit, I would have had to stop in the middle of installation and go out to get four mounting screws. Also the discount on installation equipment could not be beat and I recommend the Posi-Twist wire connectors, which made my life so much easier. Actual install time was about 4 hours w/ making the harness. *A tip about the Metra brand harness, you must use the logic module - even w/o in-car Navigation. I thought some wires were crossed until I plugged in the module. I also used a memory saver on the OBD2 port to stop transmission learning being lost while the negative battery cable is disconnected. The include microphone cable is long enough that I ran it inside the A-pillar to the left, sun-visor moun

    Pros: Who needs a CD player in 2017? Improves MP3 sound quality! Didn't need to replace the stock 'premium' 6-speakers in my Ford Fiesta since they are 25w and this unit puts out 22w RMS...plenty loud:)

    Cons: All the cons were a result of the stock Ford head unit and dash.

    Decent hardware, disappointing user interface.

    James from Reno, NV on 10/8/2017

    2002 Mazda Miata
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased this unit mainly because it was advertised to play audio from USB, so I wouldn't have to carry around a separate player. In fairness, it does play the audio. However, the user interface is less than usable. The most glaring flaw is that it has no idea of tree-structured directories with names, showing each directory as just "FolderXX", with no clue as to what might be in the directory, so searching for a particular work becomes a matter of trial & error. There are other minor problems as well. For example, it's supposed to be able to change the display color, but so far I've only managed to change the button backlight color: the display remains stubbornly white. I'd like it to display the clock at a readable size while it's playing, but I can only get a miniscule display. It does not start playing when I turn it on after starting the car, I have to cycle through the various inputs to get it to start. It extends the power antenna whenever the unit is turned on, not just when the radio is selected. In fairness, the hardware seems well done, other than the undersized buttons. It has good sound quality for the price, and everything seems to work pretty much as the designers intended. It's just that their intent doesn't match my expectations. It might work well for someone who likes a radio-like experience, with "songs" played in no particular order.

    Pros: Good sound quality for the price.

    Cons: User interface does not match what I wanted, and expected.

    I am really enjoying the new JVC KD-X340BTS media receiver. It has all of the features I needed and wanted and positively impacts my factory speakers in my truck. The manual is very helpful with the media interface being mostly user friendly. Overall, I have no complaints and will continue showing it off to friends and family. Some of the major highlights include the variety in equalizer settings, the "oomph" it provides to my current speakers, the USB port, and the variable color illumination. Just an added aesthetic quality I found particularly pleasing. And Tyler walked me through the product and installation, which went great. Thanks again.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I'm still trying to figure out some of the functionalities of this radio, after a week of installation. It's small and compact. I have an Android phone, so I have to use the USB port, but even using It USB port, it doesn't recognize my phone. haven't been able to figure out the Bluetooth function, even after reading the instructions. I think the radio I replaced had better reception, but it was giving me other problems. I bought this radio as a replacement. I'm going to keep it, because I'm ok with it. I would like this radio better if the functions were easier to figure out. Maybe after a few more weeks, I can give a better review.

    Pros: The radio is easy to connect, but the RAV4 dash kit took almost two hours to assemble. It's an ok radio. I live in a low frequency area and this radio picks up some stations. This radio will let you know it's waiting for a signal.

    Cons: It doesn't recognize my Android phone using the USB port and I haven't been able to figure out how to connect to Bluetooth. I bought this radio to replace the stock radio in my car, because the stock radio was giving me some problems such as shutting off if I change channels. I've owned this radio for a week. It's taking some getting used to. The buttons to change channels are small, and I mixed up the settings button from the search button. I haven't figured out the Iheart function either.

    Huge upgrade from my factory radio. The sound is great, and for the price....forget about it. It has to be one of Crutchfield's best deals. Clock could be bigger but that's greatly outweighed by the tons of cool features.

    Cons: Small clock

    OK stereo, good bang-for-the-buck. BT and time/date not reliable

    Jeremy from Tijeras, NM on 9/29/2017

    1983 Ford Mustang

    Cliff Notes: OK stereo, good quality for such a low price-point. Stereo frequently loses time/date for no reason. Bluetooth randomly will not connect (or stay connected). User-interface & menu options not necessarily intuitive. Sound quality sounds great to me, but I do not have a trained ear for that. It's almost like this head unit tried too hard to cram in all the fancy options, but just didn't do it well. But for the money, I would probably guy it again for another "kids car". Also, it will randomly get stuck in DEMO mode for no reason. Only way I can figure out how to get it out, is to turn car off for 15-30 mins and try again.

    Pros: Price Sound Color adaptability

    Cons: Loses Time & Date Gets stuck in DEMO mode by itself Bluetooth not always reliable

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This head unit does an awesome job for the price!I Also purchased 2 sets of the Drivn speakers for my doors and rear deck of My 02 Corolla. I am running a cheap Sony 500 watt mono amp to a Memphis StreetEdge 12" woofer as well. Since I don't ever listen to CDs anymore and run a Flash drive for all my music this was the perfect Headunit. Extreme flexibility in EQ settings and multiple HP and LP filters coupled with the sound enhancing features are unreal. Be aware it will take a good bit of time to get everything fine tuned using the pro EQ and setting up filters when running a dedicated woofer. However, when you are done, you will be blown away. This deck makes my car sound like I am running 10 speakers in the car along with the woofer. The only reason why 4 instead of 5 stars is because the bluetooth connectivity with my Iphone 6s is a bit wonky. Sometimes the speakers don't put out any sound when there is an incoming call. The included mic is very handy, no problems with clarity there. All in all great unit for the money, you cant go wrong with this one if you are looking for great sound quality out of a USB or phone music.

    2000 Ford Explorer

    I received this model to install in my 2000 Ford Explorer currently using the stock standard radio (not MACH): Cassette, Single CD receiver. I had done lots of research on this vehicle and the various problems with a possible remote-installed amp above the rear-right wheel well. I followed the instructions on the unit and the provided radio connector adaptor to wire every thing up. All the wire colors matched exactly. I had to fiddle some with the plastic surround (suited for my dash opening, but the radio slid right in and all the connections were correct the first time. It took a couple of times before I could pair successfully on Bluetooth but even that was surprisingly effortless. Setting up radio stations into memory is a breeze. I'll dig into the manual tonight but all in all, a very successful install. Total research time 2 hours (prior to the Crutchfield site) Total install time, 45 minutes.


    Cons: None so far!

    I haven't really messed around with car audio since the late 90s when the height of cool was a skipping in-dash CD player and nine more skipping CDs in a changer in the trunk. Bluetooth is solid. Tons of things to tweak. Build in crossovers, preset and custom EQ, built in amp has a reasonable amount of power, manual is clear and concise, and the lighting & color options are fantastic.

    Pros: Sheer number of features while being easy to use. Handy charging and data over USB. Color and illumination options. Built-in crossovers, plenty of connection options.

    Cons: The unit feels fragile. There is a good bit of flex before it gets secured to the bracket, so be gentle with it. One installed, it feels more solid, but the faceplate has some flex to it. Built-in amp has a surprising amount of power, though it is not the cleanest thing I've ever heard. Pair with a good amp and it sounds much better.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The JVC KD-X340BTS is an excellent solution for those looking to replace a stock head unit on a budget with all of the features of a more well-equipped head unit. I've used this unit with an iPhone 5S and a Samsung Note 5. Bluetooth setup is a breeze, the sound quality is excellent, call quality is shockingly good. With both phones connected, the sound does skip from time to time. Disconnecting one of the phones resolves this problem. The mic it is supplied with easily picks up my voice and suppresses background noise. With the top up or down on my soft top Jeep, I can be heard without issue up to 55MPH. The only area this head unit lacks in is volume. Around town, I can leave it around 13-16, but on the highway, I need to move it to 22 to continue hearing anything properly. If you are looking to build a respectable sound stage in your car an amp will be required to push the main cabin speakers further. The brightness of the display can be adjusted through the menu system, and while it's bright enough to read clearly with direct sunlight on the display, it does not get as dim as I'd like for night time driving. Picking up FM radio stations have been difficult to some extent, this may be a result of my stock antenna. Overall I'm very happy with my head unit and would purchase this again. Final note, I spoke to Crutchfield Sales Support prior to this purchase, hands down the best phone support I've ever had with any vendor or retailer.

    Pros: cheap, very high-quality build, solid and easy Bluetooth setup, great sound, easy to use menues, button placement is logical, dead simple to install, the high-quality microphone, the clock says in sync over FM and Bluetooth

    Cons: The screen is a bit bright at night even on the lowest settings, lacking a bit in volume output (wish the amp was a bit stronger), Bluetooth can struggle with two devices attached at the same time.

    Easy to install, sounds good for what I need.

    Great budget head unit. I wanted to upgrade my 2003 Montero Limited to a more modern head unit and this fit the bill great. The sound that it produces is clear with great range using the factory Infinity sound system installed. Bluetooth works easy and it charges the phone as I need for longer trips. The only downside is that I couldn't really figure out the mounting solution for the brackets. I might just need longer screws to attach the factory brackets but I really don't care honestly the radio doesn't move and it's covered up by the trip work, plus it's just a 14 year old daily work suv, not worried about looks so much.

    Pros: Great sound, easy to install, good connectivity with Bluetooth and phone calls. Pretty easy menu system to navigate.

    Cons: Mounting is a bit off but I may just not know what I'm doing, or it could be the fact that the truck is older who knows. It's not perfect but It will do the job without moving or causing any trouble. Would Recommend though.

    Unit installed easily. Great selection of colors for the display although I would like to have it brighter in day light as I currently have it maxed out at 31. I replaced a 20 year old Blaupunkt so just about anything is better.

    Pros: Easy to use

    Cons: Display not bright enough

    Great unit for my son's Camry. Pushes 2 set of speakers (6 3/4 door) , (6 x 9 rear deck) no problem. Great unit at a great price and getting it pre-wired with the wiring harness was a no brainer.

    Pros: price, functionality

    Cons: none

    this head unit is fantastic. I'm not usually one to purchase things that I can skip (up until this point, I was just using an aux to rca splitter), as I like to save my money. That being said, this unit was worth every last cent. With the wiring accessories Crutchfield sent with my order, it went right in! The 13 band EQ is fantastic, the sound lift actually works, and as soon as I installed it I immediately noticed a difference in the quality of my music.

    Pros: Absolutely fantastic digital features, all of them work. Excellent preset EQ's cut right through wind noise

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Bought this unit to replace a much older unit in my MG. I was looking for an inexpensive unit that would allow me to stream satellite radio as well as hands free cell phone usage. I had no desire nor need for cd function. This unit fit the bill perfectly. Bluetooth connectivity has been flawless and the unit has performed as expected. I took advantage of the JVC speaker discount offer and was very pleased with the overall performance. Overall, surprisingly good system for a very reasonable price.

    Pros: Versatile unit, contains most sought after features, ie; Bluetooth, iPhone connectivity, decent performance for price.

    Cons: Tedious manual. Wish clock display was larger. Time consuming and somewhat confusing to get thru the setups.

    Good HU

    I love it. Does everything it's supposed to do. The apps for it suck though... fortunately poweramp works for it, even though my phone tells me it won't :)

    Pros: Small, 4v preamps, detachable faceplate

    Cons: Apps for it blow

    Easy to use and improves overall sound system!

    This head unit is great. Installation was fairly easy and it functions incredibly well. The bluetooth feature works flawlessly and connects to my phone almost instantaneously. Before I installed my aftermarket speakers, this stereo by itself, actually massively improved the overall quality of my sound system. Definitely recommend this product.

    Pros: - Easy to use - Bluetooth - Improved sound quality - Versatile EQ options

    Cons: - Have to install updated firmware to function properly

    Decent sound for the price. Bluetooth connection is solid and metadata is displayed correctly. Vast array of audio settings that mostly seem to cancel one another out. Settings menu is a pain to navigate, why isn't it Bluetooth-configurable? Unit looks a little garish and is not very pretty. Product quality generally feels, uh, value-engineered. None of the above is a showstopper considering the price. The one real problem is the display, which is terrible. Low readability? Check. Reflects glare? Check. Skinny old-school low-light illegible 8-segment character matrix? Check. Non-customizable layout? Check. Faux-equalizer animation and random pulsating button colors? Check and check (the latter can be turned off though). If you don't mind a mini-80's boombox sticking out of your dash, this unit will deliver good Bluetooth functionality and a noticeable but not dramatic sound improvement over your factory unit's at a reasonable price. All necessary adapters, kits, etc. were included. Installation was pretty simple.



    Good product for the price.

    Overall, a very good unit for the price. Bought this unit to put into an older vehicle. Great sound, easy to install. Bluetooth connection was easy. A negative is the number of menu options. Needed to consult the manual frequently during set-up. Not all button pushes and menu options are intuitive.

    Pros: Sound quality, input and output options. Small size.

    Cons: Sometimes confusing menu options.

    Looks neat with the rotation of colors, sounds great, plenty of power. Buttons a little small and fiddly to operate confidently while driving, but when you know just where they are, it's easier.

    Pros: Sound, lighting, clear display.

    Cons: Smallish buttons.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Overall I really like this head unit. The smaller size makes fitting it in a Miata easy. The sound is crisp, the antenna reception is great, and the digital input options are just what I wanted. I love the volume knob instead of the stupid buttons most cars seem to have these days. Down sides - the radio preset buttons are tiny. The menus are confusing to me. I spent a lot of time going back and forth to get to the settings I wanted. Lastly, there is not a ton of power. With the top down, I am often at the last 5 "clicks" of the volume knob. I can crank it to 25 and the sound stays clear with no distortion, so that it great. But for an open top car, you may want to consider a higher powered unit, or adding amp(s). The downside with amps is that the Miata doesn't have a ton of space, so I am not sure I want to mess with it. I'm really happy with the purchase!

    Pros: Crisp sound even at max volume, pre-outs for three amps, smaller than a traditional CD player which is great for Miatas.

    Cons: Menus are a bit confusing. Could maybe use a little more power for convertible applications.

    Have had this for a few months and overall it's ok, but I only used it so far with a thumb drive and when you press the button to advance a song it will almost always cut out the sound for a half second a couple seconds into the song. Was going to take it out and try another one but I am selling the vehicle so it's staying with the car.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    We have an older Suburban that is still humming along and wanted to update a couple things including the tunes. I didn't want to spend a lot and was really just looking for Bluetooth functionality, as we use Pandora and Prime for all our music. I haven't installed a car stereo since my 20's (I'm 60). Back then you had to spend serious money for a decent "deck". I selected this JVC unit based on the price point and reviews. I got the corresponding "free" dash kit and bought the pre-wired Ready Harness. I'm a very handy guy with a well equipped garage, but the thought tearing into the dash and ultimatly pulling off door panels was a little intimidating....... until I read the vehicle specific install guide that Crutchfield provided. Honestly, it was a one beer piece of cake and the result was way better than I expected. Clean crisp sound and simple to adjust and use. The bluetooth pairs up every time and the phone feature works great! It checked all my boxes.

    Pros: Great Sound Easy to Adjust Settings Looks Great

    Cons: None

    This stereo is AMAZING! The amount of features packed into this unit is incredible; there are so many ways to customize it to your vehicle! From the colors of the display to the sound projection fields, almost every aspect of this stereo can be matched to the shape and size of your vehicle. If you are looking for a stereo and don't need to play CD's, I HIGHLY recommend this stereo. I have been a big fan of JVC since I worked at an electronics retailer years ago, the bang for the buck and high quality they offer in their products has made me a fan for LIFE!

    Pros: Price, feature content, customization abilities, sound quality

    Cons: Volume needs to go LOUDER!

    Nice Deck, I love that there is no moving parts in it! The USB is easy to access and I like that there is a door covering it. The Aux is easy to find, the bluetooth pairs fast and works flawlessly. The EQ is a bit over the top I think, maybe I am just used to old decks with bass, mid, treble? It would be nice if the EQ had a graphical representation you could look at while adjusting cos each band is a separate screen so it takes a bit to tweak. I like my EQ to be setup by me, but there is presets as well. The radio is VERY CLEAR and CRISP (I mean who listens to FM radio, but hey we do sometimes) - it is pretty powerful too. I get killer reception in places I didn't with stock decks. The memory is easy to program as well. The Hands Free calling is really nice, I use it frequently and most people can hear me clearly. Over all I am very happy with this deck, the options are a bit overwhelming at first and the manual is thick but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this unit to friends and family My only gripe is that it doesn't come with a face case.

    Pros: Shallow Mounting Depth Lots of Options EQ for fine tuning sound Solid Bluetooth

    Cons: settings menu is complex

    Dancing lights in your face while you drive ?!?!?!

    Chris from Fredericksburg, VA on 5/15/2017

    This unit has so many great features! It's compact so it's easy to install. The sound is terrific. Plenty of EQ options and customization. 3 RCA pairs out which is great. One HUGE downside. When you select AUX or FM, the unit doesn't care what color choice you have made for you button colors. It will change colors with the beat of the music. There is NO menu option to turn this off. SERIOUSLY! It's like an awful dance party in my face while I'm driving. My radio sits very high on my dash and it's a serious distraction. JVC, please provide a firmware update that allows the user to have solid color button display when using FM or AUX. This is the only negative for this unit but it is a major one in my opinion.

    Pros: Sound. Size. Outputs. Customization.

    Cons: Button colors dancing on FM and AUX

    Nice deck, great price.

    I am pleasantly surprised by this economical media player. This is the first radio I have installed in 20 years when I was in college and I am amazed at how far technology has come. Crutchfield still makes it easy with the included adapters and wire harnesses. This radio was installed in an old Cherokee. I was so glad to find a car stereo without a CD player because I can't tell you the last time I have used one. I have two new cars and I don't even know if the CD players work in them - never stuck one in to try it. AM/FM reception is really good. I can get stations I haven't been able to pick up with the factory stereos in any of my cars. It picks up the station text with ease. I have used it with a USB drive and Bluetooth and found sound quality to be amazing. Tons of customizing tricks with the built in EQ. 3 sets of RCA outputs for amplifiers which I intend on using when I add a sub to my system. I probably should have opted for the SiriusXM module but I'm already paying for two car subscriptions and don't want a 3rd. It took a couple tries to get my phone to link up with the JVC. Once linked, the phone sound was great and my caller was able to hear me just fine driving down the interstate with the windows down. The mic was able to filter out most of the road noise for my caller.

    Pros: Small size, packed with features, lots of EQ customization, USB input, Bluetooth

    Cons: small buttons, backlighting won't dim with dash lights,

    Good buy

    This unit is absolutely amazing at this price point. After reading all the reviews, I decided to order the JVC KD-X340BTS for my 2000 Silverado. I had recently installed new speakers to replace the 17 year old factory stock speakers. The speakers did improve the sound somewhat with the factory stock head unit, but still didn't sound great. I decided to replace the head unit with the JVC and WOW!!! What a difference!!! This was money well-spent. The speakers now sound full and rich at all levels. Install was pretty easy with the included install kit and the unit seems well-made. I did call tech support for a couple of minor questions before the install and Charles was very knowledgeable and helpful. The unit has tons of features. The Bluetooth pairing is really good, but can take 30-45 seconds to link up. Works great with my iPhone 6 with hands-free and Siri control. The best part is the ability to customize the sound--Bass Boost really pulls out the bottom end from the speakers and Loudness helps to keep the sound rich and full at lower volumes. You have several options for EQ including a full graphic EQ and you can even match the unit to the size of the speakers in front and rear locations. I saw some reviews where people said that the display isn't bright enough, but I haven't had that problem--the display is bright and easy to read even in bright sunlight. So far, I am completely satisfied with this purchase.

    Pros: Great sound, great features, bright display, great price.

    Cons: None so far. Completely satisfied.

    Good media player. No more CDs! I hated packing around CDs or deciding what CD to take before leaving the house. This unit allows me to listen to all my music on my phone. Can use the aux port, USB port, or bluetooth. The bluetooth stopped working two days after installing. Crutchfield replaced the unit quickly and with no hassles. Second unit has been in for a week. Hopefully the bluetooth doesn't fail again. Lots of features; audio settings, user defined or preset equalizer, custom-color lighting, day/night settings, adjustable dimmer, phone capability with mic and long lead, AM/FM, Pandora, iHeart, Sirius capable. Good power as a stand-alone head unit. I still plan on adding a 5 channel amp, but alone this unit can get loud. It also has 6 pre-amp outlets. Plenty of room for expansion. Volume knob is a bit narrow and difficult to grip making it cumbersome to adjust volume on bumpy roads.

    Pros: Good Power Lots of Features Versatile Media Friendly

    Cons: Blue Tooth Failed; Had to Replace Unit Narrow Volume Knob

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought it because I previously purchased a JVC KD-X33MBS digital media player for another car and loved it. This unit has It has even more features; more than I know what to do with, but I'm figuring them out. My only concern is what another reviewer stated about sound and heat. I am not running an amp (yet) and I have noticed that if I play music at a higher level the sound starts to degrade after awhile. Just today I noticed the sound degrading after about 30 minutes and when I removed the faceplate, the faceplate and the unit were hot. Something I've never experienced with a car stereo. I am guessing that it is because the internal amp is working too hard to drive my speakers (aftermarket 45W rms) and overheating. I plan on adding an amp shortly so the unit's amp only has to drive one pair of speakers. Hopefully this will solve the sound and heat issues. It is in our family van so we tried the Streaming DJ feature with my kids. They had a bit trouble connecting and it seemed to work for a time after they did connect. After a short time it stopped connecting to all BT devices and it kicked out a H/W Error code when selecting the BT function. I wouldn't clear even when turned off. The manual says to reset the unit which I did after letting it sit for a few hours. The BT devices connected and there were no further issues. My kids were able to take turns playing their music. Kinda cool feature. Just hope the H/W error was a one time deal.

    Pros: Tons of features Decent power Great Bluetooth connectivity

    Cons: Sound degradation Excessive heat from unit after about 30 minutes Streaming DJ feature a bit buggy

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Unlike my previous JVC player or my stock ford player I am very dissatisfied with the way the random feature works on this particular player. When using USB the "Random" feature simply creates a random play list but every time you turn on the car (or player) it reverts back to the first song on the play list. As an example if you listen to music on your way to work you will hear the same songs on the way home and every time you turn on the player.

    Pros: great sound, good features and excellent price.

    Cons: Random feature when using USB

    Lots of features and the compact depth makes it easy to mount. 4V preamp outputs were a plus at this price point. Mildly disappointed about the advertised "variable color". The button colors can be changed, but the display is white only. I have several other JVC units in vehicles and both the display and button colors can be changed.

    I'm very pleased with the unit and with my first Crutchfield purchase. The radio worked perfectly right out of the box. The instruction manual is accurate. Blue tooth phone connection is excellent. I drive almost an hour to work each way. I use the drive time to catch up on phone calls, both business and personal. The mic seems to work great. People can hear me very well even though I'm in a work truck with a lot of road noise. So far I have not connected my iPod or set up my iHeart station, but everything else is great, so I anticipate that these will be perfect too. As for the Crutchfield experience, every single piece that I needed was included. This was my first radio install ever. I watched several different youtube videos demonstrating the process. When the order arrived, every single thing I needed was right there, just as the youtubes described. So the install could not have been easier. And by the way, the order arrived second day even though I did not ask for it. What great service. I have to say if I ever have to do this again I'll go right back to Crutchfield.

    Pros: everything fit, everything worked, right out of the box. Every single item I needed was there waiting for me.

    Cons: None so far.

    Multi-Device Pairing w/ Dual Phone Connection: You can pair up to ten Bluetooth-enabled devices to the JVC head unit, with a maximum of two Bluetooth phones and one Bluetooth audio device connected at one time, making it easier to switch between devices. When an already paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units.

    • Secure Simple Pairing (SSP): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the JVC KD-X340BTS without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings.
    • Auto Pairing (via USB): You can even pair your Apple iPhone (iOS 5+) or Android smartphone (running JVC Music Play App) by simply connecting it to the JVC head unit via USB and following a single prompt on the head unit's display.

    Bluetooth Hands-Free Communication (w/ External Mic): The head unit supports Bluetooth hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. And thanks to the latest Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.6) with wideband speech capability, the KD-X340BTS provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls. The controls of the KD-X340BTS can be used to dial a number, answer an in-coming call, or end a call. The unit also includes an external microphone (with mounting bracket) featuring adjustable gain, so you can carry on your side of the conversation while listening to the caller through your vehicles speakers. During a conversation, you can switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode.

    • Answering A Call: When a call comes in, a ring-tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker and the caller's name or phone number will be displayed. You can answer the call from the head unit's front-panel controls, or setup the head unit to automatically answer the incoming call immediately or after 1-30 seconds. The KD-X340BTS also supports the Call Waiting function, so you can answer another incoming call while suspending the current call you are on.

      • Voice Dialing: If your mobile phone supports voice recognition, then you can dial out by voice command. Simply speak into the included microphone once you have activated the voice dialing function from the head unit's front-panel.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The JVC KD-X340BTS supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or audio player, plus song/artist information display. You are able to stream your stored music library on your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, as well as music apps downloaded on your smartphone to the JVC KD-X340BTS for playback.

    • SBC + AAC Codecs: In addition to support for the standard SBC Bluetooth audio codec, the KD-X340BTS offers support of AAC. By supporting AAC, the KD-X340BTS offers better audio performance of the music streamed from your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
    • Advanced Music Browsing: In addition to basic playback functions (Play/Pause, FF/RW, Skip, Random/Repeat), the KD-X340BTS lets you browse your stored music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, etc. (AVRCP 1.4 phones only; which includes Android 4.0+ and iPhone 5.0+).
    • Song/Artist Information: The head unit will also display your stored music and music app's song information; such as Artist name and Song/Album title (not compatible with all apps).
    Note: When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.

    Siri Eyes Free Control: When paired to an iPhone with Siri via Bluetooth, the JVC KD-X340BTS has the ability to access Siri through its front-panel control and external microphone. Simply press the "phone command" button on the KD-X340BTS to engage Siri and use the included microphone to communicate with Siri. Siri's voice will heard through your vehicle's speakers. All Siri functions including hands-free calling, music search, setting reminders, text-messaging, audible navigation, and more can be done through the head unit and its microphone. You can even ask Siri to get directions to a destination and the turn-by-turn instructions will heard through your vehicle's speakers, while the on-screen map still displays on your iPhone with Bluetooth; the head unit's audio is attenuated while Siri provides audible directions.

    Note: The head unit will only display hands-free calling and Bluetooth audio information (all other functions of Siri are only audible through the KD-X340BTS; visual data will still need to be viewed from your iPhone device).

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The JVC KD-X340BTS utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The JVC KD-X340BTS is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power output specs for the KD-X340BTS are as follows:

    • Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
    • Maximum Output Power: 50 watts x 4 channels (200 total watts)

    Amp Gain: When you are using the KD-X340BTS with factory speakers (or those rated to less than 50 watts peak), the Amplifier Gain Control can limit the amount of power being sent to those speakers. When the Amp Gain Control is set to "low," the volume control ranges from 0 (minimum) to 25 (maximum). When using speakers rated higher than 50 watts peak, you can set the Amp Gain Control to "high," and the volume control will range from 0 to 35.

    4V/6CH Preamp Outputs + Sub Control: The KD-X340BTS is equipped with three pair of 4V preamp outputs (Front, Rear, & Sub). The Front & Rear preamp outputs offer fade control, while the Sub outputs are non-fading. The Sub preamp outputs also offer independent level control (-50 to +10).

    Subwoofer Speaker Connection: You can connect a subwoofer to this head unit without the need of a separate power amplifier. Simply connect a single subwoofer (4-8 ohm) directly to head unit's left rear speaker leads (the right rear speaker output will be muted). The rated power output for the subwoofer speaker channel remains 22 watts. Same subwoofer controls apply, except the, subwoofer level adjustment is from -6 to+3.

    Vehicle Setup: In order to optimize the sound quality in your vehicle, you can indentify the type of vehicle you have and the rear speaker location, as well as configure listening distances.

    • Car Type: Select your car type to automatically set the delay time of each speaker for timing adjustment of sound output of each channel to have the highest surround effect. Choose from Compact, Full Size Car, Wagon, Mini Van, SUV, or Off
    • Rear Speaker Location: You can indicate the location of your vehicle's Rear speakers. Choose from Door, Rear Deck, 2nd Row, or 3rd Row.
    • DTA (Digital Time Alignment): For a better sound-stage you can select your optimal listening position. You can choose from All, Front Left, Front Right or Front. You can also select to manually fine tune the sound stage, using Digital Time Alignment (DTA) by selecting the distance (0-20') for each individual speaker in the vehicle compared to your listening position.

    Had Bluetooth iPhone compatible good reviewd [ chris  Sep 04, 2017 ]
    I chose this model because it has separate sub-woofer pre-amp outputs and because the face display color can be changed to something other than blue. I also chose JVC because I have a 14 year old JVC CD unit in my car that is still working to this day but the display is dark in cold weather until the car warms up. I'm also wanting to update to digital media. If this JVC unit lasts as long as the old one, it will likely outlast me and the car. [ Bradford K.  Aug 05, 2017 ]

    I chose this radio for the bluetooth feature as well as iPod controls and RDS. The variable color choices are neat as well. I can change colors from daytime to nighttime mode (blue for daytime and purple for nighttime) [ DONALD  Jun 09, 2017 ]
    Great price, deal on speakers with it. Has the bluetooth and Iphone features I was looking for including siri hands free. [ WILLIAM E  Jun 04, 2017 ]
    Good price and all the features I needed [ Benedict  May 23, 2017 ]
    I picked this based on what my son needed for his car. [ Jim  May 22, 2017 ]
    Good deal [ BYRON  May 18, 2017 ]
    Reviews from users/buyers were very good, specs were great on paper too. [ Juan J.  May 13, 2017 ]
    This stereo fit all of my needs. I couldn't remember the last time I have used a CD, so a media receiver is perfect. It has Bluetooth connectivity, multiple pre-amp outputs, and the price is right for a work vehicle that needs nothing fancy. [ Jonathan  May 12, 2017 ]
    Best option for the price [ cesar  May 09, 2017 ]
    price, lots of features, like bluetooth, hands free calling, 6 channel output for my amps, display colors. [ ARNOLD  May 08, 2017 ]
    3 audio out, for easy speaker and amp, expansion in the future. FLAC playback. [ Daniel  Apr 30, 2017 ]
    I've always had good luck with JVC products. Reviews on your site were positive for installations on a wide range of vehicles. I trust Crutchfield to provide assistance if necessary when my grandson has to install it. [ Whittier  Apr 25, 2017 ]
    This has the most features for what I am looking for, at a price that blows everyone else away! [ Mark  Apr 22, 2017 ]
    Purchased fro my 17-year-old son, CD's are old school make sure you get the Bluetooth, Aux Port, and USB. [ Eric  Apr 18, 2017 ]
    Had the previous model and liked it, new ride, new unit upgrade. [ Jonathan  Apr 13, 2017 ]
    Great features for a great price! [ Needle and Nail  Apr 13, 2017 ]
    Good price and there was a special where I could get two pairs of JVC speakers half off with purchase [ James  Apr 05, 2017 ]
    Great features, good price, hands free [ Shadsun  Apr 04, 2017 ]
    Needed shallow size, BT, Aux and USB inputs. 1.5A charge was ok (would have preferred 2.1A). Doug helped find one with the right depth (< 4.75") [ Paul  Apr 01, 2017 ]
    It has a good power rating along with a lot of nice features. [ Cindy  Mar 29, 2017 ]

    just needed a media player [ CHARLES  Mar 20, 2017 ]
    Everything I needed for a really low price [ Joshua  Mar 18, 2017 ]
    It was recommended as being easy-to-use and intuitive. [ Parker  Mar 17, 2017 ]
    This item has all the features I wanted, at a great price. Also, the Crutchfield community was very helpful in answering a question I had about this unit. [ Mark  Mar 15, 2017 ]
    blue tooth @ CD player [ Herbrt F.  Mar 10, 2017 ]
    Best car stereo for my needs and for my budget! [ Duane  Mar 07, 2017 ]
    Good price for features. Crutchfield had a special discount when purchased with JVC speakers [ Robert  Mar 04, 2017 ]
    had all of the features i wanted [ ron  Feb 25, 2017 ]
    I've used the JVC that this one replaced in 7 cars. It was flawless in each one. When it came time to install a digital media player in my truck, JVC was the sure choice. Looks great, performs better. No complaints. [ Jason  Feb 23, 2017 ]
    It had the features I wanted at a good price with free shipping and included all the materials and accessories needed to install it. [ JEFFREY  Feb 21, 2017 ]
    Shallow depth for easy mounting in classic car. Only 4.5" deep! Will fit it into a '77 FIAT 124 Spider [ Hanns  Feb 16, 2017 ]
    I have the KD-X320 and x330 and they're both excellent units. I just love the reliability of JVC Products! [ Nicholas  Feb 08, 2017 ]
    Superb upgrade from stock cassette/CD stereo. Adds bluetooth and smartphone charging to an ancient stock system with the ability to color match display to the rest of the dash. [ Thomas  Jan 31, 2017 ]
    I have two teenagers, they can both connect their phones to it and play music via Bluetooth. [ Mark  Jan 24, 2017 ]
    This units depth is much shorter due to the receiver not having a CD player. With limited space inside the dash of my vehicle this installs without any modifications to the vehicle. [ Michael  Jan 22, 2017 ]
    Great price and compatible with latest Apple phone and backwards to older versions. Six channels. [ MARTIN  Jan 20, 2017 ]
    This is the3rd JVC I've bought from crutch field and I've never had an issue [ Denny  Jan 10, 2017 ]
    This unit has everything I need; simply and effective. I never use CDs nor DVDs in the car anymore. I carry two phones (one Android and one iOS) thus the ability to have two phone connected via Bluetooth simultaneously was very important to me. I have a similar model of this digital media radio in another vehicle and have enjoyed its simplicity and depth of features. My wife can operate and with ease. But if I want to adjust sound settings; it's all possible with this unit. Thanks JVC ! [ HiTech Upgrades  Jan 09, 2017 ]
    I need USB, aux input and the Bluetooth capabilities. I like the multicolor display too. [ RICARDO  Jan 01, 2017 ]

    13 questions already asked

    I have the same unit, and it automatically starts playing music from my iPhone. So, I have almost the opposite problem. I'd like it to wait until I at least hit play! I think that you can actually reload the latest version of firmware, maybe that would help. That's my only suggestion. [ Dustin  Oct 19, 2017 ]
    This is a standard "single DIN" chassis model which are all a standard 2" tall x 7" wide. the only dimension that can change from one model to another is their mounting depth. The JVC KD-X340BTS requires a mounting depth of 4.6" (not counting any RCA cables you may connect to the pre-amp outputs) [ Ryan  Oct 11, 2017 ]  Staff
    Thanks for your question. Yes it does. You can find this information on the main product page under "What's in the Box". Hope this helps. [ Kenny  Sep 22, 2017 ]  Staff
    Yes. I have android and streams great. [ Matthew  Jul 07, 2017 ]
    Yes you can stream with any Bluetooth phone [ hamza  Jul 07, 2017 ]

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. [ Krissy  Mar 31, 2017 ]  Staff
    Yes, it does.....if you have that feature turned "on" in the clock menu. It does not display the time once the vehicle's ignition switch is turned off. [ JEFFREY  Mar 16, 2017 ]
    No it does not. There is no power to the unit that I can tell when the key is in the off position. I have pressed every button in the display with the key off and nothing will light up. [ MATTHEW  Mar 14, 2017 ]
    No. [ John  Mar 13, 2017 ]
    No. The unit has to be on for any function to work [ Elijah  Mar 13, 2017 ]
    Yes you can set clock display on for when the unit is off [ Omar  Mar 13, 2017 ]
    My screen is completely dark when the unit, and my truck is off. Is that what you mean? [ Jason  Mar 12, 2017 ]
    I haven't set the unit up yet other than making it play SiriusXM stations. However, the instructions state that the unit can be setup to display time when unit is off. [ Tony  Mar 11, 2017 ]
    Yes, as well as day and date [ Al  Mar 11, 2017 ]
    Yes as long as you set preferences that way.Enter [ scotthct  Mar 11, 2017 ]
    You need to use the new harness for the KD-X80BT. Just match up the colors with the diagram that is emailed to you. Use closed-end crimp connectors to connect the wires together. [ Alexander  Feb 28, 2017 ]
    Crutchfield will give ya the wire harness along with the plate that the stereo goes into. Most places you would have to pay extra for them. So the wire harness you would plug into your original car connector and the other end will go in the back of the stereo. It's real simple to do and save you alot of time [ Anthony  Feb 28, 2017 ]
    Not that from I can find [ Alexander  Feb 28, 2017 ]
    Hey Brian, I wish I could answer your question. I bought the unit for my sons car. I bet he could answer the question better than I. I will say that the time is way, way, way to small. I will check with Nic and get back with you. [ gonet  Feb 28, 2017 ]
    I have the same problem with the clock as well. I have not found any way to make it bigger and it only displays in certain modes, I have been using my cell unfortunately for the time. must be a fault in the design. [ Terence  Feb 28, 2017 ]
    The display(radio info, track, etc.) are always white. The surrounding area(buttons) are customizable. [ Al  Mar 11, 2017 ]
    The JVC KD-X340BTS actually features variable color illumination for the display and buttons. The same color setting can be applied to both the display and buttons, or you can choose a different color for each. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. I hope that helps! [ Larry  Jan 19, 2017 ]  Staff
