Nice sound and power.
Item # 105KDX350B | MFR # KD-X350BTS
When your music collection fits into your pocket, you need a car stereo that fits the way you play your tunes. JVC's KD-X350BTS 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.
Android® users can control Pandora®, Spotify®, and iHeartRadio® 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, Spotify, and iHeartRadio stations using your voice, your phone, or the receiver itself.
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.
If you're a satellite radio fan, you can connect a SiriusXM® tuner (sold separately) to your KD-X350BTS 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 cross-country without losing your favorite channels.
The KD-X350BTS plays MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, and even FLAC files, so you'll be able to enjoy all kinds of 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 out the best in each song, while the Volume Link EQ boosts specific frequencies in the audio signal to compensate for increased road noise as you drive faster.
It's always smart to invest in a receiver you can grow with. The KD-X350BTS gives you three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs, which really come in handy when you add amplifiers and a sub to your car audio system.
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. 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.
With your smartphone connected to the KD-X350BTS, 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.
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.
iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.
Nice sound and power.

Nice sound and power.
This is a Great stereo! Easy to install. Bluetooth is great!
All i wanted was something to play music off USB *and* display the clock all the time which is surprisingly difficult to find on aftermarket radios. The wattage is a noticeable improvement over stock radio with aftermarket speakers, (yes i tested it before and after). And not having the stock stereo restrict certain frequencies is very noticeable too. The JVC 6x9's i got sound great. I appreciate all the options the radio has, but there are just way to many menus/submenus to navigate through. Its kind of a mess. That, and i was really disappointed to discover that while the 2nd screen (the smaller screen beneath the main display) displays the artist/album on the left side, you cant have the clock displayed on the right too, (it will display a useless live EQ). If you want the clock on the right then youre going to have the month and day on the left which i think is really dumb. Theres lots of options for color combinations and depth but only three settings for clock display which is a big oversight. Track displays fine but the artist folders show up as USB 001, 002, etc. Not sure why. Another thing is is has "auto" dimming but i have yet to see it consistently work. There is an option to set the hr/min/pm/am when the dimmer turns on and another to turn it off, and i havent checked to see if it interferes with the "auto" setting.
Pros: -Sounds great -Inexpensive -Bright screen in daylight -clock display all the time
Cons: -cluttered menus -cant display the clock with artist -dimming is finicky
Sound is improvement over stock. Bluetooth either has difficulty linking sometimes or automatically turns on Spotify even when it's not in use on my phone.
Pros: Sound improved over stock using stock speakers.
Cons: Poor connectivity with Bluetooth. Automatically activated Spotify on my phone even when the app isn't open - not good.
Great product. Syncs quickly and easy to navigate buttons. Wish there was a setting to not auto play after BT connects.
Pros: Small size makes for easy install. Does just what I need.
Seems to work well, Bluetooth works flawlessly. The app is very helpful
No complaints here! First time installing a car stereo and went perfect. Just wanted to upgrade the radio in a 2003 PT Cruiser so it had Bluetooth. Great price, does what it's supposed to do.
Pros: Great features at a great price point
The JVC KD-X350BTS is an excellent upgrade. I'm pleasantly impressed with its performance even with the stock speakers. Choosing and buying at Crutchfield is absolutely a pleasure.
Pros: Performances, design, ease of use, price
Cons: Cant drive enough now.
Great quality radio with many features for the price. Easy to install.
Easy to install, easy to use, great sound !
Pros: Great with Iphone
Integration with my iPhone SE and with Spotify is excellent. The Bluetooth connection takes about 15-20 seconds. The unit offers a lot of tuning options as far as crossovers and various audio settings. I do wish the track forward/backward buttons were a bit more prominent, and in a more intuitive position relative to each other.
Pros: Crossover/DSP settings Spotify integration
Cons: Track forward/back buttons are not very intuitive/accessible
Plug and play with Crutchfield's harness! I installed this unit in about 5 minutes. It was that simple. Sound is great.
Install was simple, easy functions and best of all it sounds great??
Pros: Price Sound Installibility
Cons: Demo more is annoying but easy to get rid of.
Easy to install. Bluetooth is fast and easy. Running with (4) Polk 5.25" coaxials in a Jeep. Produces enough power to overcome wind noise and still hear the music with the top down.
Pros: Easy to install. Short body due to no CD player. Bluetooth is fast.
for its price it is good. The controls are a little troublesome. Lots of options but to access them you have to press many buttons. Otherwise good, good bang for your buck.
The Good: small compact size. Looks like it's half the size of a regular car stereo. USB sounds and plays amazingly well. Easy to scroll through songs and albums. I have a 32g USB 3 tiny adapter loaded with albums. Bluetooth pairing is fast and easy. Music sounds great. Havent made a call yet so can't comment on that. Now here's my biggest praise with this stereo. Sound settings and adjustments are incredible for the price. My old Kenwood $250 stereo didn't have half of the sound settings that this JVC has. I thought my sound system sounded great with the Kenwood but after listening to the JVC, JVC blows away the Kenwood. Sound with the JVC is Crystal clear. My three 10's, Tweeters, and 6.5s sounds amazing. 22rms Watts I think is underrated. Sounds much louder. Colors are great. Easy to customize specific colors. The Bad:. It feels very cheap and very light. Maybe because it has no CD player is small and light but just feels cheap. Gets very hot. After hooking it up to my car, I sat there listening to music for 30 min making several sound adjustments to dial in the right sound for my system. After I was done, I reached to the back of the stereo to snug in the cables and accidentally touched the heatsink and it was so hot and toasty. That concerns me and hope it doesn't fry during hot summer weather. Overall it is a huge bang for my money. I am completely satisfied.

This head unit is easy to use and sounds great.
Easy to install, easy to use, sounds great!
Works great doesn't charge while radio is in pandora Spotify or I heart radio mode but other than that no complaints
Pros: Looks cool founds great
Cons: Little hard to use the modes and or understand the stereos features
Excellent stereo! Can't go wrong with Crutchfield's service!
I got the radio for its Bluetooth feature. I love it...
Pros: Ease of use , sounds great, now hands free.
Worked with Allen to purchase everything needed to replace the stereo in my 2000 Porsche Boxster. The local big box store quoted me $270 for this receiver with "free" installation. I accomplished the same results doing it myself for $115....The unit came with a pre-wired harness so I could run it through the existing amplifier and speakers. And I would highly recommend the pre-wiring...becomes a plug and play installation. Installation took me approximately 45 minutes. Sounds gr8! Many thanks to Allen!
Pros: Knowledgeable and friendly customer support. Unit sounds gr8!
Cons: Not the easiest unit to program when first starting up.
Great design, it sounds much better than the factory receiver. Lights aren't too obnoxious and audio will pick back up from my phone automatically. Overall I am very pleased, especially for the price.
Pros: Nice design Very functional Good clarity
Cons: Settings menu is a little annoying to navigate
Wow! Time alignment, 13 band eq, hi and lo pass x-overs for a great price, insane
Pros: Super easy installation
Installed this into 1997 Porsche Boxster. Install kit worked perfectly. Only issue was removing the original radio which would not budge. Local installer removed the radio for me. Once installed, this unit is really easy to use and produces great sound through the 20 year old Porsche amplifier and speakers.
Very happy with the head unit. Put it into my son's Honda Accord and he loves it. Install was easy especially with wiring harness. Made it plug and play
Pros: Easy install Smaller than previous radios
Cons: Controls aren't intuitive - took some studying of the manual
Easy install with the pre-wired option. 19 bucks well spent. Excellent instructions and the stereo works great. This is the third Crutchfield stereo I've purchased. Clearly I'm happy with the company.
Pros: Easy to install. Detailed instructions for removing old streams installing the new one.
This is a great buy. Exactly what I wanted except that when I plug my iphone into to USB port I get an error message. I thought that it was compatible and hoping to be able to charge my phone this way.
Excellent sound, very easy to set up, and the hands free feature has excellent sound quality. This is a great unit at this price, I would actually expect a unit this nice to cost double what I paid.
A great radio for the price! Its hard to beat the service and support from Crutchfield! The kit fit perfect in my sons F250. Thanks!
Great stereo. Packs a much bigger punch than the stock one in my Wrangler. Very easy install. I'm a little surprised it does come with a case for the detachable face (which is why I took off a star).
Pros: Sounds great, customizable colors
Cons: No case for detachable faceplate
Fit and finish is great! Crutchfield always does a great job sending out the correct gear to make these projects easy.
Pros: Display and function is great
Stereo fit pefectly and was everything described. Sounds great and the ability to adjust the color gives the stereo the appearance it came from the factory.
This unit has a great combination of features and with Crutchfields install kit, it goes in so easy.
Replaced Jeep OEM unit with this. Paired it with the Sirius receiver. Easy installation. Works great. Better sound, easy controls. Phone connection is great. Not just a great radio for the price, a great radio period.
Great sound, great price, easy install. Bluetooth connects quickly and the phone calls sound good on both ends of the conversation. Set up of the stereo itself is quite simple to complete.
Pros: Sound, price, user friendly
It works great, easy Bluetooth connectivity, love the fact that I can thumbs up and/or down to any Pandora song from the receiver.
30 minutes start to finish. Fits perfectly and better sound.
This is awesome!!! It has made my stereo sound twice as good. Mic install can be tricky but I got it in perfect. Also paid to have it all connected and I would strongly recommend that you pay for that also. Great product!!!
Pros: Sound, Bluetooth & Easy to install
Cons: Mic can be tricky to install
easy to install. easy navigation. easy connect to my and other phones via blue tooth. clear Phone calls via blue tooth.
Pros: Clear audio and mic for hands free calls
Awesome display with color and power for the price given. Gives a good sound and woofer control alongside Bluetooth hookup!
Pros: Color Display Power Distribution Bluetooth Connect
This head unit has more to offer than I could ever utilize. Meets my needs and my kids think it's nice!
Pros: Lots of options and easy to use.
Awesome and easy to install!
Exactly what I was looking for... the Bluetooth automatically connects to my phone when I get into my vehicle. Instructions were easy to follow, my vehicle system sounds better than ever!!
Pros: Inexpensive, easily installed, sounds awesome.
Cons: Required two "ground loop isolators" to eliminate a popping noise when changing between functions. Crutchfield quickly sent them, easy hookup, eliminated noise. Very pleased with great customer service.
Easy install, product showed up as described. Easy interface and great sound control.
Stereo has good sound and the features are really nice. Installation was easy. The LCD is a little cluttered.
Love this receiver so far! Easy install and fits perfect in my Ram 1500. So much better over stock system. Buy it...you won't regret it!
Love the stereo great sound and super easy to install!!!
Bought this to replace the old and outdated factory radio in my 2005 Pontiac G6 & LOVE IT! Has spotify controls built into it so I don't have to always look at my phone and change music anymore. Easy to install. I didn't even read the instructions and got it all wired up. Sound quality is great and has many EQ settings to tune to your exact liking. Not to mention BLUETOOTH! 10/10
Pros: Multiple EQ settings Easy to install Spotify controls BLUETOOTH
Cons: None at all!
Great price. Easy installation thanks to the prewired harness.
As an amateur, it was pretty easy to installing using Crutchfield's instructions. It is a great product for the price and work beautifully.
Pros: Easy to install, very functional, great buy
I am happy with this unit, since I can now finally listen to podcasts, USB FLAC files, and have hands-free calling with BlueTooth. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because you NEED to disable their "K2 Technology," otherwise it'll distort your speakers like crazy when you drive them hard. What was JVC thinking, leaving that on automatically? Also, if you're playing 24bit/96khz FLAC files, MAKE SURE they are encoded to FLAC 1.3.0 (the last update from 2013) or else they won't play. FLAC 1.2.1 is fine for most but you should re-encode them to 1.3.0 just to be safe. Switching from USB to BlueTooth audio is one button push, but BTA to USB requires you to either re-insert the USB or scroll through the sources. Further, it's a shame that the car remote app has terrible connectivity, which would have made the source switching even easier, but the app randomly won't connect. Unacceptable. I won't downrate the stereo, but their mobile app team needs to figure out how to maintain BT connection. K2 issues aside, I do like the various audio options for dialing in the perfect sound for your car setup. Just do yourself a favor and disable K2 immediately.
Nice stereo .....lots of features......just what need for my both vehicles......so I bought 2 of same item.....thanks Crutchfield
Pros: Easy to set up
Cons: None so far
Great product came with good instructions.
I ordered it for my daughter who inherited my 2005 Honda Civic which had a no frills standard stereo with CD and no AUX or definitely BT. Received my order faster than expected. Came with the unit, adapter for my car for a seamless look, instructions all for a good price. Considering the age, I didn't think I would find anything period. Also, order the ReadyHarness for an acceptable up charge, which was worth the time saved for me. This was my first stereo installation and took me just 1 1/2 to pull and install. Showed my daughter the features and she configured the programming part to her liking. She was very happy with it, especially with the Purple light display, as that is her favorite color. Also the BT connectivity and hands free phone were another big faves of hers. No more lugging around a portable speaker to hear her music! :-) The ability to adjust the brightness on this one was an added plus as many of the models had a number of complaints that the display was too bright. The brightness adjustment was not specifically called out in the details online, but was a nice added surprise. I had heard of Crutchfield before but thought it was high end stuff (which it does have) and didn't at first glance. I was at a box store and the sales guy told me to check it out. I was glad he told me and that I did. Overall, for the price, clear enough instructions for installation and ease of installation, we are happy customers. I will shop Crutchfield in the future.
Pros: One-stop shop price, ease of installation, program ability to suit our tastes (hide what we don't need and adjust the features we want)
Cons: The bracket adapter's instructions would have been a little more clearer, but didn't stop me from installing.
Great unit for the price. I like the smart phone app, allows you to set custom sound features such as setting speaker size, sound lift and so on. Bluetooth audio comes through very clear, people on the other end seem to be able to hear you very well. On the down side the buttons are small and don't have a good tactile response when pressing them. Maybe it's just me but I can't seem to back up to previous tracks, the back buttons will only restart the current track from the USB feed (from my flash drive). I like the customer color selection but wish there was a random color shift option. A "disco" light mode or beat flash would have been nice, with all those colors available you would think they would have done better with a light show. Fit right in my 2008 Subaru Forester with no issues. I'd buy another one if needed.
Pros: Sound adjustments, good Bluetooth, variety of inputs, smart phone app and price point.
Cons: Buttons are small and difficult to press, lacking a light show option.
Great stereo. Tons of features and easy setup.
Pros: Price and features
Cons: Some buttons small and hard to read
Excellent sounding unit. Very nice audio adjustments. Looks nice in the dash of my 98 Dodge ram. Phone calls are clear and the Bluetooth functions are easy to use.
Pros: Great look great sound easy install
Great fitting and sounding deck. Because of not having a CD player, it is a little more shallow in depth. It got in my K5 Blazer perfect. The blue tooth function works great on phone calls.
This is a definite 5 Star product for what it is...it performs way beyond its price point. Some reviews stated programming being difficult, but I thought it was fairly straight forward and easy. The hands-free mic is surprisingly good as well. I've been ordering from Crutchfield for over 20 years and don't see how their competition stays in business...You. Can't. Beat. Crutchfield.-best service, prices, products...you name it.
Pros: Lots of options for sound and display. Amazing performer for this price.
very satisfied with the value for the price. easy install clear instructions
Pros: tons of features quite simple to operate
Cons: does not seem to get dimmer with dash lights even tho I did hook illumination to proper wire. However you can dim lighting thru the unit controls
Awesome car stereo for the price. Sounds Great! Love the look.
This was a surprisingly awesome receiver for the price. Lots of useful settings and whatnot. My only complaint would be that from my experience the mobile app is crap, and it takes a few extra seconds to connect to my phone through bluetooth. Not really big issues though because my system sounds great now and bumps hard!
Pros: Lots of features, good sound, plays nice with my amp
Cons: Weird about connecting
Great product works awesome, colors at bright and it looks great in my car! Very satisfied!
Pros: Works great looks great
Cons: Can't seem to figure out how to adjust bass yet and treb yet
The included Metra 91-3300PC Kit and the pre-wired Ready Harness I purchased made the install a snap. I really like this receiver because I can connect my phone via Bluetooth or just stick in a USB flash drive for all my music. Hands free calling through bluetooth is great too. I rely on the Aux port (which this unit also has) in my other car, but using bluetooth is so much easier. I don't use Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio or SiriusXM, but it's nice to have those options. I also bought the Kicker 43CSC6934 6X9 and 43CSC464 4X6 speakers. This system blows my old stock radio out of the park.
Pros: Great sound with tons of features. Great price and quick delivery. Excellent customer service and everything you need for installation. Buy the Ready Harness, you'll thank yourself when you realize how much time it saves you.
Cons: This receiver has so many features it took me a long time to read the whole manual! ;)
Very nice, easy install, sounds and looks great!
Pros: Looks and sounds great.
Cons: Wish the clock display was bigger.
Had not ordered from Crutchfield in years; but when my son purchased his first car with his own cash and then picked out a stereo system, I decided to give them a try again. The packaging and the instruction set(s) were absolutely awesome! Great job guys!
Pros: quick delivery, very fair price, great packaging
Cons: none at this time
The stereo works great! The phone calls are very clear and plugs into my iPod perfectly in place all my music. I install this in a 1999 VW beetle. Awesome job Crutchfield
My daughter really Liked this for Christmas! As the installer I liked this head deck and the install parts they sent. Instructions were not great, I did have to use the internet for a few things but overall install went very easy. Wish there was a wiring sheet that showed all of the wiring vs having to piece together the RCA manual, adapter wiring packages, and the adapter box. Overall glad I went with Crutchfield.
Pros: Price, everything came that I needed, install was easy
Cons: Wiring diagrams are scattered on multiple books and packages. Needed to figure out how to get the factory Amp to turn on, used the power antenna wire and a scotch lock to factory Pink wire.
The hardest bit of the install was releasing the original cable connector. The fit was excellent. The features and performance are outstanding for the price. Spend the money and get the cable made by Crutchfield.
Pros: Ease of installation Fit Value
This was a Christmas present for my daughter and her '06 Toyota RAV-4. The most important thing to her was blue-tooth connectivity, which took her all of two minutes to get set-up with her I-Phone. Now she can take calls and stream Spotify to her car stereo, which is what she wanted. She's a happy camper. I haven't had a chance to tune the unit with the built-in equalizer or delays. But, even with the factory presets, whatever they are, there is much more punch with this head unit than what she had with the eleven-year-old factory unit. Surprise, surprise. Last year we installed Rockford Fosgate 2-way coaxial speakers, front and back. Now there's sufficient power to make the sing. The Bluetooth microphone is decent, she doesn't have to shout to make herself heard. We drilled a hole in the left side of the trim kit and glued it in place. No exposed wire. Doesn't sound as good, and not as flexible as the stereo I put in my car, but that's not a fair comparison: JL Audio DSP, Rockford Fosgate amps, JL Audio component speakers.
Pros: Single-DIN chassis is easy to install, trim kit supplied by Crutchfield fits well Decent sound, especially for the price. Nearly infinite choices for color scheme is pretty cool Bluetooth microphone is decent, much better than the mic that came with a Pioneer had unit I bought a few years ago. Pre-amp out RCA jacks make for flexible install options
Great product, works well with my IPhone, and priced just right!
I am giving it 5 stars although it is not installed. It is a Christmas gift. Thank you..
A simple digital receiver that does everything you ask of it for a low price. I couldn't ask for any more!
Pros: Simple Inexpensive
Super easy install, instructions are well written. I'm really happy with the quality of the sound this JVC unit produces!

Front-Panel Auxiliary Input: A front-panel stereo minijack is provided to allow the connection of almost any portable audio source with a 3.5mm headphone output. Simply connect your portable digital music player to the unit's front-panel auxiliary input, and you can listen to the audio from the portable player through the speakers in your mobile audio system.
24 Bit D/A Converter: The JVC KD-X350BTS utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.
MOSFET Amplifier: The JVC KD-X350BTS 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-X350BTS are as follows:
Amp Gain: When you are using the KD-X350BTS 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-X350BTS 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.
Crossover Network: The JVC KD-X350BTS lets you choose between a 2-way or 3-way crossover network for your car audio application.
Equalizer: The JVC KD-X350BTS is equipped with 8 EQ presets, an Easy EQ (3-band), a Pro EQ (13-band), and a Vol Link EQ. Choose the one that best fits your type of music listening.
Sound Effects: The KD-X350BTS offers adjustable Sound Effects to provide a better listening experience inside your vehicle.
Loudness, Bass Boost & Bass Extension: The Loudness feature boosts low and high frequencies to produce a well-balanced sound at a low volume level. The unit's Bass Boost enhances low bass frequencies at any volume level. There is also a Bass Extension feature which further enhances the unit's bass output.
Volume Adjust: The input level of each source (other than FM) is adjustable relative to the FM radio volume, so there isn't a significant volume difference when changing sources. Each source is individually adjustable from -15 to +6.
Key Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.
Remote App (for iOS & Android): The JVC Remote App is an application for Apple iOS 8.0+ and Android OS 4.4+ that controls the JVC receiver like a wireless remote control from your compatible Apple iOS device (via Bluetooth or USB) or Android device (via Bluetooth only). The JVC Remote App provides traditional touchscreen control, as well as directional and freeform gesture control.
- You will need to indicate within the head unit's menu what type of device (Apple iOS or Android) you'll be using the JVC Remote App on before the application will connect and function with the receiver.
- When using the JVC Remote App with your compatible Apple iOS device, the application and device must be connected to the receiver via Bluetooth (not USB) for playback of Bluetooth audio. For playback of a USB-direct connection from an Apple iOS device, the device and application must be connected to the head unit via USB (not Bluetooth).
Steering Wheel Control Input: The head unit features a steering wheel remote control input wire (blue/yellow) within the included wiring harness that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately).
Optional Wireless Remote: The KD-X350BTS can be controlled wirelessly from JVC's RM-RK52 IR remote control (sold separately; not available at Crutchfield).
Detachable Face: The JVC KD-X350BTS features a detachable face to deter theft. No face-case is provided. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired.
2-Line VA (Vertical Alignment) LCD: The KD-X350BTS is equipped with a 2-line VA (Vertical Alignment) LCD screen that offers high contrast, sharp images, and a wide viewing angle for better visibility. The LCD screen provides information for audio settings, song/artist/album info, and station identification. You can even select between English or Spanish text.
Variable Color Button Illumination: The JVC KD-X350BTS features variable color button illumination. You can choose from one of 49 preset colors, have the unit scan through all 49 preset colors continuously, or customize your own color (RGB; 0-9). The custom setting allows you to individually adjust the intensity of Red, Green, and Blue (from 0-9) to better match your vehicle's interior lights.
Note: The unit's LCD screen does not offer variable color illumination. It has a fixed black background with white text.
Brightness: The unit offers a daytime and nighttime brightness settings for the LCD and button illumination. You can adjust the brightness level of each manually from 0-31.
Dimmer: The unit's dimmer control can be set automatically, manually, or via timer. Manually select "Off" for daytime brightness setting or "On" for nighttime brightness setting. Choose "Auto" which switches between day and nighttime brightness setting automatically when you turn off/on the headlights (orange/white wire of harness must be connected to headlamp circuit). You can even set a specific time for the "Off" and "On" dimmer setting to be activated.
Day & Time: The unit displays a 12-or 24-hour clock, as well as the day (Sun/Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri/Sat). The day & time can be selected to remain on, even if the head unit is switched off (as long as the vehicle's key is in the accessory or on position).

I've had good results with JVC products through the years. Only chose this size because my stupid Buick cannot take a full size CD unit without cutting stuff up in the dash to make fit, which I could do but don't want to bother with. Although CDs are out, I record my own band stuff with a Tascam unit that still utilizes them, nice to take it right out to the car to listen to, but now one extra step to load into laptop and put on usb drive, so much for my buggy whips!

I spend a lot of time in my truck, so I was looking for a decent system, but I didn't need anything over the top. This stereo seems like it will more than meet my needs, and I didn't have to spend a fortune. [ Stuart May 05, 2018 ]

Ratings, price, and color settings [ Ken Mar 28, 2018 ]
JVC is a well-known brand, who also has a smartphone application for use with the stereo. Reviews are very strong. Crutchfield generously included many items in this package, saving me $50 or so. Thanks. [ Colin Mar 25, 2018 ]
good buy [ Robert Mar 18, 2018 ]
I was looking for a stereo that could charge and connect my phone to the speakers to play music. This seems like it will do the trick and I look forward to playing around with it. [ craig Mar 14, 2018 ]

Same [ Joe Dec 16, 2017 ]
I chose the JVC KD-X350BTS as a replacement for the factory receiver in my wife's 1998 Mercedes Benz because of the price, the favorable ratings, the features and good experience in the past with JVC. This car is only driven around town. We have no need for a CD player or satellite radio. We have a great local FM radio station and receive the remainder of our music these days via Spotify. We are a mixed Android/iPhone family. [ Tom Dec 10, 2017 ]
Looking for system for outside music devices; Iphone, MP4 player and USB. Blue tooth capable. Auxillary and USB ports on front of stereo. [ Ronald Nov 21, 2017 ]
Looks to have the features important to my wife. [ Samuel Oct 31, 2017 ]
Good deal and highly rated by other buyers on Crutchfield. [ Stan Oct 24, 2017 ]
Clock is on when radio is on [ steve Jun 22, 2018 ]
Yes if you set it to display [ cory Jun 20, 2018 ]
In my car the clock doesn't display unless the unit is on. 2007 Toyota Sienna. [ John Jun 20, 2018 ]
Yes its in the settings [ Christopher Jun 20, 2018 ]
Yes, I use mine and it's perfect! [ Landon Graham Jun 12, 2018 ]
Yes, we have iPhone 7 and 10 and it works great with both. [ Scott Jun 12, 2018 ]
I use this with my IPhone 8 everyday, turn on blue tooth on my phone and forget about it. I get in, start my vehicle, it pairs automatically, and I just enjoy. [ Robin Jun 11, 2018 ]
One of ours phones did sync but we can't sync another to it.. both Iphones. Aside from that great deck for the price [ David Jun 10, 2018 ]
Yes there is. You push in the volume button(the round button on the left). [ Derek Jun 05, 2018 ]
Not sure about the 8+. My 7+ had no problems connecting, so I would guess the 8 should also. Follow the directions and good luck. [ Douglas Jun 03, 2018 ]
I don't know. I have SE and 6 plus without problem. [ Jayson Jun 03, 2018 ]
Had no issues connecting with my wife's 8 plus. [ Chad Jun 03, 2018 ]
Yes. It will sync with your iPhone. [ Lindon Jun 03, 2018 ]
My iPhone 10 connects just fine so I would imagine the 8 would work. [ zachary Jun 03, 2018 ]
Yeah it can be pretty difficult to see the display when the sun is directly on it even with the display on full brightness, but otherwise it's not much of an issue that I've noticed. I also just use the Bluetooth connection on my phone so I don't really rely on the display. [ DAN C Jun 11, 2018 ]
I installed this unit in my 2000 Jeep Wrangler and have zero issues seeing the display on sunny days, even with the top off. [ Jeremy Jun 02, 2018 ]
It's not that I can't see it in the sun, i can see it just fine. But if a passenger has a white shirt on and it's a sunny day, the black screen and the glare of the white shirt don't mix very well. I have a feeling any stereo you get with a shiny black face will have a similar issue. [ Jaben May 31, 2018 ]
It depends on where your installer places the phone mike. Obviously wind noise will be a factor. I know you can adjust the sensitivity. It's a great radio overall. [ Margaret May 22, 2018 ]
Sorry I can't help [ Margaret Apr 19, 2018 ]
Sorry, but I have not had such issues [ Mark Apr 19, 2018 ]
If you do not have the factory storage pocket, we have an aftermarket pocket you can use to mount the single DIN stereo in the stock cavity and fill the space: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_003UPT900/item.html The factory sub and the amp that powers it (when equipped) will not be retained when an aftermarket stereo is installed. For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly by phone or through our online chat service: https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx [ Ryan Apr 25, 2018 ] Staff
I would speak with Kat. She is a excellent advisor. She will listen and not over sell you on products. It's a great receiver choice. We went will Infinity speakers. If you go cheap on speakers you won't get the sound you are looking for. [ Lara Apr 23, 2018 ]
The color is completely customizable. In the color settings you can adjust the RGB (red, green, blue) levels independantly to replicate virtually any color. I used these settings to match the factory white/amber color of my other dash buttons and the receiver blends in perfectly with the stock trim in my Sierra. [ Ufdah Jan 12, 2018 ]
It is not, no. The SXV300V1 is the compatible tuner package for this stereo: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_220SXV300/item.html SiriusXM should allow you to transfer your lifetime subscription over to a new tuner for a fee. [ Ryan Nov 14, 2017 ] Staff
