Bluetooth® adapter for select JVC receivers
Our take on the JVC KS-BTA100 by Crutchfield's Zak Billmeier
Add hands-free calling to your JVC receiver. This handy KS-BTA100 Bluetooth adapter lets you answer incoming calls and place outgoing calls with compatible phones all without having to fumble around for your cell phone. You can also stream music from a compatible phone — use the dedicated keys to play your tunes.
To get started, plug the KS-BTA100 into your compatible JVC stereo's rear auxiliary input, then mount it in a convenient spot. Once it's connected, setup only takes a few minutes, and you'll be on your way to safer driving, talking with both hands on the wheel and keeping your eyes on the road. If your phone has voice recognition dialing, you'll even be able to dial your favorite numbers just by saying a name.
Note: Compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.
