Crutchfield: JVC KW-R710 display and controls demo
With JVC's KW-R710 CD receiver, you get big everything. Big buttons and a big display give you easy access to the controls on this big double-DIN stereo. A big palette of customizable colors in three different zones of the faceplate let you match your interior lighting or just highlight the controls and inputs you use most often. And by firing up this receiver's solid power and extensive sound-shaping controls, you get big sound for all your music.
Adjust your display colors to match your interior lighting.
If you enjoy Internet radio on your smartphone, you'll really enjoy playing music from Pandora® and iHeartRadio® on this versatile receiver. Load the Pandora or iHeartRadio Link app on your iPhone®, connect it to the USB input, and you can scroll through your stations, bookmark songs, and give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down right from the receiver's face. With JVC's Music Control app loaded on select Android® phones, you can play and control the stored music on the smartphone.
JVC upped the power in their USB port, which lets you keep your smartphone charged, even when it's doing several tasks at once. Drive Change allows you to connect a memory card reader or USB hub to the receiver's USB input, then select music from up to five memory cards or USB flash drives. You can also connect just about any portable audio player to the KW-R710's front aux input, or simply pop in one of your favorite CDs.
Once you're playing what you want, shape your sound with the onboard 3-band parametric equalizer. If you're adding amplifiers or a powered subwoofer, the two sets of 2.5-volt preamp outputs provide you the clean signal you need.
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this JVC stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the JVC, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.
App Note: iHeartRadio playback and control requires the "iHeartRadio Link for JVC" app on your smartphone.
iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

Average Customer Review(s):
Pros: Good value for the $. Easy to install
Cons: Complicated features with the typical soft menu.
For the money, this receiver is excellent. I would recommend this unit to anyone who wants quality and flash but is on a budget.
Pros: Great sound quality as well as easy to install and configure.
Cons: No Bluetooth
Great buy for the price. Super easy to install. Enhanced the sound over the old factory stereo. Looks great with all the color options.
Pros: Value, performance
Absolutely perfect and at a great price! Fit right in my 2013 Sonata with no problems!!!
Pros: One word... Wonderful!
I like the product but would like to know how do you turn off the lighting effect?
I live in a metropolitan area and normally I can receive both NY and Philadelphia stations in my other car without issue but with this unit I barely get any reception. If I use the USB port to charge my phone I get nothing. The menu system is not at all intuitive a task as simple as setting the clock takes much longer than it should. Finally the unit will not eject my CD. I bought this unit because it would automatically Bluetooth connect to 2 phones sadly this is intermittent at best. On a positive note the sound quality is good and the customization of the color display makes it look like it was made for my car.
Pros: Good sound, Display is good as well
Cons: Poor Radio reception, intermittent Bluetooth connections, won't eject my CD
Install a snap with provided instructions and wire adapters. You DO NOT have to cut the rear supports as pictured for this radio to fit. Absolute perfect fit with mtg hardware. Radio a killer for the money. Also put new speakers in-Kickers in the front, Pioneers in the rear. Big sound
Pros: Receiver has all the features and power you will ever need
Cons: None that would bother me
It took me a while to finally add this considering I've got custom door speakers with sub and amp already. A lot of people comment about how much better there stock speakers sound but, with actual good speakers like the top of the line pioneer 6x8 in my 2009 ford Taurus, a pretty major difference. It's taken me a little bit to learn how to work this unit but I figure if I'm going to keep it, I need to lean. It takes a little bit, but I'm happy now with it, a lot of adjustments can be made for what ever taste you have. I really think if you have this unit with stock speakers you really need to also upgrade to aftermarket ones to really hear a bigger better difference! Either way a can't miss!
Pros: Sounded really good even without my sub on, could live with it even without the sub. Charges and plays my phone.
Cons: For me at least, took a while to learn.
I was in doubt about this receiver but after installing it I love it!!!
Cons: Need to be more menu friendly with features
The JVC head unit was part of a gift with 4 infinity reference 6 1/2s and the sound is just great.
Pros: All very good
Great, affordable stereo. Good options for customizing colors, display. Could provide better Iphone controls.
So far I have enjoyed this CD/radio. The sound is good. I haven't had the time take the booklet and sit in my car to figure out how everything works (ie. to change the lights) yet but then again I have enjoyed the "disco" feel! It was fairly easy to install, though I had some help. Everything I needed was sent to me which helped me a lot since I really didn't know what I would need to install it. I would recommend this product and Crutchfield for any of your car stereo needs!
Nice headunit. Huge improvement over the factory headunit. Sound quality is very good.
Pros: All good.
Cons: None really.
Easy install, perfect fit, great features! I'm very happy!
Best place to get your audio
Pros: Everything was great
Excellent unit...great sound, easy to use...very flexible. Installed very nicely. No gaps, no major problems installing the unit. Minor issue during the installation, I called the tech support line, they only needed my email and zip code, and they knew what I had..no trying to find a sales / order number. They had me set up and running in 5 minutes, and wouldn't let me off the phone until he heard the radio playing. I will buy from Crutchfield again. The web site was excellent too, only showed me choices that fit my car.
Pros: Great value, easy of install, tech support,
Great radio quality sound
I replaced the factory radio in a 2006 Mercury Montego with this unit. With the helpful info on the website I new what I needed to install this radio. The install instructions are a plus as well. The radio takes some getting used to with all the features but with the owners manual I was able to figure out how to set up. Its has a very nice (simple display). The sound quality improved.
Pros: easy install, improved sound quality, and more options for add ons.
Cons: setting up requires manual, not very intuitive
Installed this in my daughter's 2010 Nissan Rogue; her Aux jack broke on the Bose factory stereo and I realized it would be less expense and aggravation to install a new radio than to repair the old one. The install looks intimidating at first (tons of wires, some vehicle wiring harnesses left unused, etc) but was able to complete the install and it worked on the first try. Crutchfield tech support was outstanding! I called them three times during the install process, even though I spoke to three different techs they were able to access my information and help immediately. Everyone was knowledgeable and patient- I am pretty handy but have never installed a car stereo before. Radio sounds great, can't beat the price (even with all of the accessory wiring harnesses and faceplate adapter), and my daughter loves the "blingy blingy" flashing colored lights. And the USB jack is a great upgrade, allowing her to not connect her phone to a separate charging and aux cable every time she's in the car.
Pros: Price, ease of install, features, sound
great i love it!!!
I have had the unit less than two weeks in my 2004 Mustang Cobra, replacing the stock Mach 460 system which had CD changer issues. The Included harness fit perfectly. The speaker wires mated up perfectly using solder and tape. The sound quality is great!!! Convenient AUX port and USB makes a CD changer obsolete. So far it has performed flawlessly.
Pros: Sound Quality, Appearance in dash is great. Flexibility in formats with AUX and USB
It easy to install and every thing work as it say I love it for the price you wont get better the only thing it dont have bluetooth but it is great set
Pros: well if you need bluetooth get the next model up I just show my friend the model i got and he already call for the next model as i said it worth every penny and those guys are good best customers service i had experience since the 70
Installed in 2004 Nissan Frontier XE King Cab. Installation was straightforward and easy. Sound is monumentally better than the stock Clarion unit. Display is very bright and I ended up turning everything down to minimum for the "Night" setting. Lots of presets for the EQ plus 2 programmable by user. Bluetooth works well with iPhone 6. Pairing took a little while but was pretty painless. I tend to use the USB port so I can charge my phone while listening to music and using phone GPS. Also paired with my work iPhone 5. The Disco Display Demo is easily turned off if you read the instructions. Very hard to beat for the money. I purchase the refurbished unit and can't tell it from new. Take your time and play with the buttons. There seem to be a lot more choices/settings than what's in the owners manual.
Pros: Price and features. Good sound (compared to stock CD/radio)
Cons: None to speak of.
Great product for the price
I love it
The radio looks real good in my truck but it also has all the features I wanted
Pros: Great price
Cons: There are none
This is a great radio, really nice color features and very good quality sound even with factory speakers.
Easy to install
Was looking for a unit that would work with IPhone and Android devices. I like the idea that I can play MP3, CD, and music in flash drives. This unit went into an 04 Expedition
Pros: Great sound. The AUX and USB adapters in the front of the unit a +
Cons: The harness was confusing since the factory harness had and extra plug that the radio unit did not have but Crutchfield support guided through the splicing
wanted to replace factory deck to hook up my iphone and came across this deck.i read the other reviews and the choice was easy.
Pros: def upgrade from factory deck,great deck clear sound
Bought this stereo to replace the factory unit on my daughter's 2006 Nissan Pathfinder. Installation instructions and gear were so good that my 18 year old daughter did most of the work, except for the steering wheel controls. This part was complicated and instructions supplied with the package were not clear as to the wire combinations. Placed a call to Crutchfield and immediately received very specific instructions via e-mail that worked like a charm. Sound through factory speaker system is super. Looks are great, especially at night, where effects and colors are appreciated.
Pros: Sound quality, ease of use, Aux and USB adapters.
Cons: Lots of wire splicing, but, on the other hand, precise instructions and schematics.
A impressive unit but difficult to set up.
Pros: Good sound and impressive look.
Cons: Difficult set up
So I ordered this head unit because it looked like a great bargain, I typed in my car model and year to find out that it will fit perfectly with the recommended wiring harness, so I ordered it. It got here today and I was stoked so started wiring it, I crimped the harness to the stereo wiring to realize that it had 2 ports and my car only has one, and neither of them match it, I did find out they match the ones for my digital clock in my 1997 4Runner Limited, but that isn't the radio. So as it turns out I can not use this unless I have it "professionally" installed because the wires connecting to it do not match the colors of my vehicles port.

Decent deck for the money. Installation was fairly straightforward thanks to Crutchfield's supplies and support
Pros: Good value. Allows me to play my mp3 thumb drives.
Cons: Sound is decent but could be better, maybe new speakers will help. A bit of a learning curve to operate.
This is great. I have just had on minor issue where it froze for about 5 minutes. It has not happened since.
Pros: Great sound quality and has good features. Worth the price.
Cons: None it is worth the price.
Easy install. Great looks. Incredible sound through factory speakers. A great upgrade for base model stereo for very little coin
Supports Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0) with a firmware update over USB.
Pros: Sounds great looks awesome
Cons: Steering wheel connector is very difficult.
Very happy with this product, easy install and great sound!
Pros: Great sound and easy installation
Cons: Has way more options that it does than i really need.
The font size on the manual instructions is so small that a magnifier had to be used to read it. Installation parts were missing from the package. Installer had to fabricate some in order to install the radio. Reception is problematical also. Distant stations do not receive well. The display is hard for this reviewer's eyes to manage. This product is OK and the price was also OK. This reviewer would not purchase it again, certainly.
Cons: Below par on all accounts. A do not purchase recommendation is charitable.Crutchfield response on 6/1/2015 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our customer service or tech support teams right away.

Got this to replace dying factory Monsoon unit. The display size was a huge factor for choosing it. Installed easily and without any fitment issues. And most importantly it sound 1000 percent better than the factory unit.
Pros: Display size, quality construction, all of the many options
I really like this stereo. I bought it to replace my original factory stereo which did not have an aux jack. The stereo was very easy to install and instructions were great. It sounds awesome and looks really good. I love all the options for color. Great product for the price for sure!
Pros: color options, usb and aux jack
I had no problem installing the radio! The instructions that came with the radio was very clear and precise! JVC is a great radio to replace factory radio! Sound great! Great light features! Good quality radio!
Pros: Cool light features! Make factory speakers sound better! Im able to adjust the amp power so it wont blow my factory speakers! Very easy to use! Solid radio!
Cons: There is none!
Works great, very easy to install.
Pros: Plenty of features to keep you playing with it for a while
Cons: Those features are hard to figure out how to use at first haha.
Ordered this for my son's car and wanted it to fit the whole space of OEM radio. Installation went smoothly and wiring did too. We love the sound and ease of functions while driving. My son is impressed with the color options for the display. He has matched the colors to his gauges that compliments the interior. Thanks. Matt S.
This unit brought new life to my driving experience. The sound quality is great and it works great with my 1000 watt amp and subs.You can not beat the price and quality. You won't be sorry you bought this unit.
Only had this product in for a week now but so far no problems/ issues at all! It should be noted that the Pandora feature only works with Iphones (bummer for use android users).
Pros: easy to use/ figure out/ program
Cons: phone features only work for Iphones
Great fit. Great sound. Blows away the factory radio and sounds amazing with the factory speakers Fully adjustable "pro" equalizer should be mentioned on the product review from Crutchfield. More than just base, mid, and treble bands. Controls take some getting used to but this radio does everything I could ask it to do.
Pros: Fit, Finish, Adjustability and Great Sound.
Cons: Menus take some time to get through and should probably be done while stationary
Had to get a new stereo for my expo the one I had was junk and this new stereo is awsome love how you can chose different color of lights
Pros: It has a lot better sound quality then my old one easy to install
Cons: The only thing bad that has happend and I have been told it's with all stereos is right when you install the new one it blows your fuse but I spent like an hour making sure I wired it right when all it was was a fuse
Loved this head unit. My only complaints is that one of my rear speakers is not working anymore. I soldered the wires over and over again but it's still not working. I didn't blow a fuse because all the speakers and the head unit wouldn't be working and I can't figure out the problem.
Pros: Beautiful. Had an old ipod that can only play when connected to something, so I awesome I can use it again after all these years even though the screen is dead on the ipod!
Cons: Loss of sound from one of my rear speakers. Brown wire not labeled to know what it does.
I was so excited to listen to this radio. The sound quality is great. I love the remote control that came along with it. Would highly recommend this radio over any Kenwood or Pioneer.
Pros: The pros are the connections to Pandora
Cons: My Iheart is not working.
It fits perfectly in a 2006 chevy Silverado. Crutchfield says it's a modify fit well its not is a exact fit. Easy to use blue tooth works flawlessly every time. Crutchfield audio always fits perfectly been buying from here for years they send evening you will need to install the right way every time
Pros: Awesome radio easy install only took an hour to install
Got this to replace my stock shaker 500 system in my mustang pleased with I so far.
Pros: Installation is pretty easy, setup was simple
Cons: Still get the turn on and pop through the amp even with the voltage converter may be a flaw on my part. Wire crimping is tedious
love the radio and it looks way much better than the stock head unit. easy to install and the color choices make it even more immaculate than i would have guessed.
Pros: Easy to use. Shades of color. Quick to install. Sound quality is great.
Cons: No Bluetooth
This stereo replaced my stock stereo in my Ford f150, and I couldn't be more happy. The stereo made stock speakers sound so much better I couldn't believe it. The perfect mix of a huge amount of options and ease of use. Crutchfield was awesome to deal with, and their mounting hardware made installation a literal 20 minute job. I could not be more satisfied as a customer, and I will be back for sure. If you're looking for an extremely affordable way to bring the functionality of your cell phone into your car, Iwould highly recommend this stereo. I love mine!
Pros: Illumination options, sound, Bluetooth at such a cheap price, quality.
Cons: Absolutely none.
Very good head unit at this price point. The features are very cool. Sound is good, much better than the stock unit it replaced.
Pros: Very cool appearance and features.
I needed a new radio so i could hook up some subs in my truck and this was the best radio ever
Pros: The usb hook up for pandora and i heart radio work perfect sound good and the display is awesome
Cons: The only con is not having a wonderful and awesome radio like this
Great for the price, the menus can get confusing at times
Love the unit awesome price and quality
I bought this radio for my first car, a 2007 Chevrolet Aveo Ls to replace my factory stereo. I'm glad I made this choice, the colors are very nice and it made my Kicker speakers sound even better! I definitely recommend this radio!
Pros: 18 preset stations
Very good radio, using it with the stock speakers and a 12" sub and amp. The radio was very easy to install and came with everything I needed.
Pros: Easy installation Easy to use
my 1st one was kenwood i thought it badd.but this one wow.
Pros: great quality and easy use
Great radio for the price. Easy controls and easy hookup.
Well It finally came time for me to replace the aging Bose head unit in my Infiniti. So I wanted something in the 21st century (USB,AUX,ETC) after looking and reading the reviews I finally bought this radio. After 6 months of use I have only had to do a master reset once. It's holding up better then I thought!. The selection for the colors is neat and it has some cool preset colors too. For what I paid for this radio I am very pleased. If you are looking for a cheap but decent radio this is it.
Pros: Large button's and a nice bright display
Love the product. Very happy with my purchase. Love the lighting functions available
Pros: Lighting colors
Cons: Not set up to support android phones
This is exactly what I ordered, but the features are a little difficult to navigate
Good fun receiver. The colors are cool and I like the sound quality/clarity. I was also surprised at reception of additional radio stations in the area that I didnt know existed...never had that with an aftermarket radio.
Pros: Lots of stuff to play with and it sounds good.
Cons: I still haven't figured out how to program stations 7-18 easily even though I read the manual.
The installation was snap. Had to call tech support and they made it very easy to fix the problem. JVC sound quality is awesome. The different colors you can use is great. it makes it costume to you.
Pros: Great value. Sound awesome. Easy installation
I installed this reciever in my 06 sierra and it works great. I was able to keep keep my steering wheel controls and safety tones with additional purchases from Crutchfield. And you get a discount if you buy it all together. I already had aftermarket speakers and with the installation of the new receiver they came to life. Very happy with this product.
Pros: -price -quality of performance -customization of display
Cons: -a little tricky to tune -has a cheap feel in your hands
This is an AWESOME radio for a great price. It fits well in my Mazda. I haven't read up on it too much yet but will be studying the details of this radio. So far so great.
Pros: Customize the colors. Looks good.
Cons: None yet
Easy to install-- The 'set up' was a little challenging. I had to call tech help once to ease my mind about the yellow and red wires as they are labeled differently in the radio instructions and the interface instructions. I used covered butt connectors to put the wires together- wire nuts would have been messy. I have figured out how to use the radio & cd player, but I will have to fiddle with it a little to sus out the color thing. Sound is great- the first cd I put in was a computer burn copy & it played just like a new one.
Pros: Easy install, Nice look, nice sound, fit the car perfectly (read the instructions),
Cons: the menu is not friendly at first, but it takes a little getting used to.
I have purchased 2 of these one for my motor home and one for my truck, great units great price my next radio will definitely come from you
Pros: Great radio cool color choices
Cons: Nothing bad to say
I installed this in no time. It was so fun to finally get it. The minute I ordered it I couldn't wait to receive it. I love the colors. My own and also the preset colors. I would recommend this to anyone.
Pros: Cool colors. Lots of options to get ye exact sound I want for specific songs and genre.
Cons: Have to have cords I wish it could just sync without cords. Lots of controls but it takes awhile to figure out, but that's okay.
Nice stereo for the price.
Pros: Display is Awesome. Sounds great. Easy to install.
Cons: Sound cuts in and out. Blinkers are heard thru stereo. Not sure what it is exactly yet but trying to figure that out. Other than that the stereo itself is very nice.Crutchfield response on 11/25/2014 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
I think that this radio is an overall great choice. Good sound quality and easy instalation with the instructions provided. There is one downside of the radio, navigating through the settings/menus is confusing.
I love this. Its perfect for everything you need. Abx the colors are amazing.
Pros: Great sound, great accessibility, easy to use.
Cons: Its a little hard to install. But after that, works amazing!
great. I love it. The directions for installation were not very helpful but I figured it out and overall it worked
Pros: nice, easy to use, cool with the colors
Cons: not very useful directions
This was my first purchase from Crutchfield and I will use them in the future. Really great experience.
This head unit was a great replacement for the factory unit.
Pros: Color scheme great
Cons: A lil tricky at first setting everything up
Great sound. Easy to install. Directions for use poorly written, confusing. Screen glare makes it hard to see.
Pros: Great sound. accepts all kinds of inputs which was an important factor in choosing this model.
Cons: Screen glare and confusing to operate. Directions confusing and poorly printed on poor paper. Downloaded better copy from internet.
I was able to install this quickly with my son and it went very quickly in a 2000 Tiburon.
Pros: Easy to use, sounds good and looks great
Cons: None yet
The unit fit in nice with the install kit looks like it belongs in the car. The lights adjusted to the colour of the dash lights nicely like it belongs there.
Pros: Big nob big channel switches so adjustments are made without looking down when driving
Cons: read the manual took a while to set it up
Pros: easy install , and online ordering is a breeze
CDs played nicely in this unit. Also the radio works very well. The color display is very beautiful. All in all a great stereo.
Pros: Displays the name of the radio station and song playing. You can set the color scheme to your preference. Plays CDs, has a USB port for hooking up iPhone, and an auxiliary input jack.
Cons: Buttons are too small.
This was for my daughters 1st car it was a suprise i guess i did good she loved it and it had all the right features she wanted in a system.. thank you for making it easy to pick one out and making sure it was the correct size for her car. She loves it
Sounds great and easy to use. The USB port on the front is awesome. I did have some difficulty with some of the buttons being hard to press but once you get it set up like you like it you'll be using the remote for most of the functions.
Pros: Great sound. Easy to install.
Cons: No bluetooth. Not the best looking display.
Bought this unit to replace the one that came with my sons 2006 Mazda 3. it arrived when it was suppose to.so i got down to installing it.. Install was super easy... until i realized i had the mounting brackets for a 2010 mazda3(which was totally my bad as i thought his car was a 2010) called Crutchfield . they said a new one for a 2006 would be arriving in 2-3 business days .and it did no questions... didnt even have to return the old one.. once it arrived.. 15 minutes and we were up and running.. the radio works great.. it does take a bit to figure out the menus and such.. but all and all a very good unit for the price
Pros: USB and aux jack as well as Pandora function
Cons: none so far
Cons: Manual needs improvement.
great radio love it
Pros: the sound and the looks
JVC always makes reliable products. This particular unit looks good. Sounds decent. Has plenty of nice features. Unfortunately, JVCs weakness is ease of use. You must push hard-to-push buttons to access many of the features, holding them in for a couple seconds in some cases. Also, many features are hidden in tiring scrolling menus with one way in and one way out. Come on JVC, make your stereos more fun and easier to use!
Pros: JVC reliability. Looks good. Features.
Cons: Hard to push buttons. Frustrating menu browsing.
Bought for my 18 year old daughters car and she loves it. You can't beat the features and ease of install with the colored directions(with pictures)! Will definitely buy from Crutchfield agan!
Pros: Love all the features!
Cons: Too many options for old guy like me. But my 18 year old loves it
For the price point I was seeking this stereo provided me with a quality product. It has an aux port and a usb port. Sound produced is far superior than stock stereo. Great "coolness factor".
Very easy install...Much better the my factory radio
Surprising performance with stock speakers...
Pros: Free install kit
Cons: Controls take getting used to...
Fits perfectly in my Acura CL, looks and sounds great.
Pros: Light feature is pretty cool
Very nice sound, better than the manufacturer stereo. I will recommend it to anyone who has a 1998-2000 Chevy Prizm.
Pros: Easy installation, it took me an hour to set it up.
Cons: I have not figured out how to set the lights and the dimmer is not working. Over all very nice stereo.
Good unit at a good price. Does what I wanted. had one problem since I missed any instruction to hook up the power antenna power to turn on the antenna amplifier, but back out and hook up and it works fine.
I did a 1.5 DIN to Double DIN conversion to my 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab, 4WD pickup. I removed the OEM 1.5 DIN, AC-Delco, DVD Receiver in the dashboard and replaced it with a new aftermarket Double-DIN, JVC KW-710 DVD Receiver. Since, the new 2-DIN CD receiver is slightly taller than the OEM receiver. I had to modify the opening in the dash bezel to fit the taller radio. As shown in the digital photograph that I took, the results are looking pretty good. A 2-meter Ham Radio was installed in the lower bay where the OEM cassette player was formerly located.
Pros: My new JVC KW-710 CD Receiver sounds much better than the OEM 1.5 DIN receiver that was replaced. It looks much better than the OEM radio. The fit in my 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 is much better than expected.
Cons: The dash bezel had to be modified to accommodate my new Double DIN receiver. I used a template that was provided by an automotive stereo shop that does Double Din conversions for 1999-2002 GM pickups.
I love this stereo. Great buy due to the price.
I bought this to replace a JVC KDS-100 Bongiovi DSP unit I bought from Crutchfield years ago.This new one suffers in comparison,especially in sound quality.It may have trouble pushing the Infinity reference speakers,I don't know.The bass is boom-y and sounds completely different.The wattage is supposed to be comparable,but it's not working out well.It looks impressive and isn't as finicky with a flash memory loaded with music as the old one was,but the improvements end there.Probably will go with a Sony or Pioneer next time.
Pros: Looks nice,Changeable color scheme(sort of) Stereo reception not bad if you care about that.
Cons: Sound quality not so great,Equalizer is somewhat mystifying.Not something you'll be adjusting on the fly.
WAS ALITTLE SKEPTICAL WITH PRICE BEING SO LOW BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE A GREST DEAL. INSTALL WAS EASY AND FIT PERFECTLY IN MY SANTA FE AND IT LOOKS GREAT
Pros: GERAT PRICE, SOUNDS GREAT, EASY INSTALLATION, AND LOOKS GREAT
Cons: ONLY 1. (MY FAULT) CAME IN DEMO MODE ON.. KEPT SWITCHING FEATURES, THOUGHT ID HOOKED IT UP WRONG.. WHEN I FIGURED IT OUT TURNED OFF DEMO AND IT WORKED PERFECTLY. SO I GUESS NO CONS FROM HERE.
Very pleased with it fit and finish
Pros: Easy install
If it had access to android phones and bluetooth I'd give it 5 stars
This is a wonderful product. Very easy to install. Sounds and looks great.
Installed into my 2014 Nissan Frontier pick-up truck. Double DIN size fit perfect into dash. Great sound, did not need to purchase new speakers. total transformation for my truck. had unit installed for me. Many color and equalizer settings. Great idea to add usb port for my carry along music catalogue. . Crutchfield made purchase easy, did not have to buy any extras. Crutchfield provided all hardware needed.
Pros: Great sound. improved sound out of my speakers. like the equalizer settings.
Cons: wish I would pick signals from android phone.
Was very easy to install. Supplied adapters matched original with no problem. Color code and instructions were somewhat obtuse, but by process of elimination, correct wire termination was accomplished.
Pros: nice looking, great quality and half the price of the original non-functioning unit it replaced
Cons: non noted at this time.
I have had this stereo for a few weeks and I love it. The sound quality is great and sounds better than old stereo even with stock speakers. It's easy to use and install thanks to Crutchfield's instructions and manuals. Customer service helped me through installation and was absolutely great. I would recommend this product to anyone.
I just installed this in my 2006 Corolla, and haven't really put it through it's paces yet. However there are a few things I don't like about it. It would be nice if it had a Mute button. Also, a separate Band button would make it easier to access the radio stations I listen to when I drive to work. And my last observation is that there seems to be a 2-3 second delay when switching between the different source functions. In fact the countdown is displayed on the screen. I installed a less expensive radio in my 1999 Corolla that has the Mute & Band buttons, and with a quicker response. I wanted something a little flashier for the 2006 but am a little disappointed now. The display is very nice. It does take time to go through the menu to set it up, but that's pretty much standard for the newer units. It was pretty easy to install once I got the old radio pulled out. The pieces needed to fit the radio to my car worked great. Fit perfectly. I realize in the grand scheme of things, these are incredibly minor issues but I thought they may help a prospective buyer make an informed choice.
Pros: Price; great customer support; fast delivery; looks good
Cons: No mute button; no band button; delay when switching functions
This thing is awesome. I just installed it in my 2005 Camry. It immediately upgraded the sound tremendously. When I was in high school, I was really into car stereos, so I know what good sounds like. This sounds great. But the main reason I am writing this is because I was very worried this thing would look crazy. It actually is not as bright and colorful as it appears. You can make it that way (change colors to really bright and turn up the brightness) or you can put it on a nice auburn or green and turn the brightness down, and it looks like a stock stereo.
Pros: sound, color settings, aux input
The unit came well packaged, the install was slow but pretty straightforward(I had a long time ago tried to remove the factory radio without proper instructions and stripped a few screws, so I had to use the dremel tool to cut notches into the screw heads and use a flat screwdriver tip to take the screws out.)
Pros: Pros: - The Unit performs very well, the audio quality improvement over the factory radio was remarkable - Plays USB. I got one of the tiny 16GB USB keys from another online retailer and loaded it up with music and stuck it in, now I can keep playing thousands of tracks without repeating. - Plays AUX. When wife does not agree with my song choice, she can use her phone to directly stream to the unit with a simple AUX cable with makes this unit compatible with any player that can output AUX - literally everything
Cons: CONS - The plastic vanity harness has gaps between it and the unit - gaps visible - can live with it - The Faceplate is smooth, hard plastic and any dust is extremely visible. - The Random mode on USB stinks. If you change from Random to serial, back to random, it picks the exact same sequence of songs :( This stinks big time. Fix it, JVC! - Does not show folder names. Instead shows F1, F2, F3.. for folders which makes no sense. How can I know what folder I am in??
This is a great deck for the money spent on it. It does not have a lot of the flashy options or power that the high end decks have, but for the money you get a well built head unit that has more than enough for a quick factory deck replacement.
Pros: Easy to install, good fit and good looks.
Cons: Menu options are limited. Needs a more intuitive interface. Needs better support for android.
It has all the needed features and is built well. No useless gadgets or erroneous pieces. It looks similar to factory radios so it actually fits in to an ordinary vehicle well.
Pros: Very cost effective. You are getting the most for your dollar.
Cons: If you want something that will get attention, this is not it.
I bought this radio for my Ford Explorer. It fits in the double DIN space perfectly, and the choice of colors for the display are a nice touch. Searching through the menu to decide on the options you want can be a little time-consuming, but is a necessary evil. I have a problem with the clock losing time every now and then, not sure why, but it's not a big deal to me. Other than that, I really like it.
Pros: Looks good, easy to use, good value
Cons: Menu functionality
Awesome stereo. Works as it should and with the factory BOSE speakers and amps, it's awesome.
Pros: Functions Great. Looks great. Lights are a perfect match for the Corvettes dash lights. A nice quality piece at a great price.
Cons: Lights take a little bit of work to get them set right, but that's no biggie. You just have to be patient. I think you can match about any color you want.
If this radio will fit in your vehicle buy it. It has great features like a pause button ,big preset buttons and it is easy to operate without a phone book sized manual.
Pros: easy to operate Has a pause button Big preset buttons It installed in my escape in less than 30 minutes
Cons: It requires additional stuff for Bluetooth devices
I needed to take one of the most difficult tasks in a marriage; Spousal Technical Support. It was time to replace the broken stereo in her 2012 Nissan Versa. The new JVC came to our door faster than expected. The installation kit was complete. Instructions were easily interpreted. Only took an hour and a half to install. Most of the time was taken soldering wires. The stereo fired up first try. Unfortunately, I had wire the Blue wire from the antenna adapter to ground so the stations weren't all coming in. I email late Saturday afternoon expected an answer the following Monday. In Minutes I received an email from Matt in customer service providing me a solution to the issue. I attached the Blue wire from the antenna harness to the Blue/White wire from the JVC Harness and the Blue/White wire from the Versa's Harness. Re-installed the radio and now the tuning is better than the original radio. It's great when you get help the instant you need it.
Pros: Everything needed to replace the existing radio was provided. The delivery was fast. Customer service is excellent!
Cons: Instructions could have been a little clearer on the blue wire from the antenna harness. I might have miss read though.
I was stuck deciding between this model and the one above it with blutooth. I decided on this one because it was cheaper, supports up to 5 flashdrives on a hub and can charge your phone. And it was 1/3rd less in price. I honestly don't use blutooth when I've had cars with it so it didn't matter to me. For me the layout and low price were important. It also had more power than the Pioneer similar models. I just have a 16GB flashdrive the size of my thumb plugged it--what else could I need? Works great. Sounds great. I just wish there were buttons for bass boost and loud (you have to go into the audio menu to adjust). The only other complaint is the color matching--you can do day custom, night custom or presets. I'd like to be able to do the flow preset (goes thru all the color schemes) for the display screen just for the day setting (headlights off) but apparently the presets are for both day and night which is a shame.
Pros: looks cool low price lots of power good sound great usb port with power
Cons: no blutooth (get the model up for $50 if that's a deal breaker--it isn't for me) no "loud" or "bass boost" button for quick access presets for screen color are too general
Great product for the price . Looks great and sounds great . Great value. Would definetly recommend it .
Pros: Looks great . great quality for the price .
Cons: Just got it .. Np complaints so far
You can spend literately hours customizing ever aspect of this radio. It made my factory speakers scream, which is great, save money on new door speakers. But the iPod/iPhone controls are kinda clumsy, lengthy to track down songs. Adjusting the amp and sounds settings is endless. Great you have the option, but my truck isn't used in completions, kinda over kill to be honest.
Pros: GREAT deal. Value for the $$$ is awesome. Looks good.
Cons: A little low on the "user friendly" side of things, but I buy it again if I had too.
great radio sound quality is a big update from stock headunit
Pros: great unit
Bought this for my son as a birthday present. Install went smooth as butter with the FREE included accessories that Crutchfield provided. For the price, this sounds excellent and has quite a few features. I would buy this again and my son is thrilled with it.
Pros: Sound, Features, Price
Cons: Navigating the menu can be time consuming.
I purchased this stereo to replace the factory radio in my 2002 Ford F250. I went with the double DIN because I didn't want the extra dead space in the dash. As with any new electronic gadget with a ton of features, it took a while to get used to. I love the Pandora feature that integrates with my iPhone 5. The install took longer than I expected due to the dash opening modification. I found it easier to just remove the dash to cut out the factory plastic tabs around the edge. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase!
Pros: Great sounding stereo with a ton of features
Cons: Modifying the dash opening was a little more difficult than expected. As the instructions state, a rotary cutting tool is a MUST.
Easy to install. Great stereo for the price. Lots of features. Ipod works great thru the unit.
Pros: See review.
Bought this unit to change out factory unit which worked fine just wore the paint off the buttons. Love the ease of installation. Went right in no problem. Great fit with install kit that came with the unit. Great sound. Love all the features.
Pros: Really awesome light show with all the different built in schemes. Easy to change color patterns to less distracting scheme for night driving. Easy to change equalizer settings.
Cons: Some of the function buttons are a little small and hard to aim for when driving.
Overall, I'm very happy. It took a lot longer to install it than I was expecting, but I'm sure if I ever install a car stereo again, it'll be easier. My only question: Has anyone had issues with the scrolling? When my 6th gen 160gb iPod Classic is plugged in, it only scrolls through the song name when the song starts, then goes back to the time. I have the scroll set on "Auto" and the time display turned off. The user's manual says that when the scroll is set on Auto, it's supposed to scroll through the info in 5 second intervals. It only does that when I turn on the car. Any ideas? I'd like it to continually scroll through all the info so I don't have to keep hitting the display button to see the album & artist name.
Replaced my factory unit that has been giving me problems for months now. I had the old unit out and new unit in a less than an hour. Sounds better than ever and looks great.
Pros: Perfect fit, no modifications needed.
Cons: Had to make one call to tech support because I had no audio once unit powerd up. Turned out I had not connected the power antenna wire (Blue & white wire) to the vehilce adapter soit would turn on the bose amplifier. I had left it unhooked because I don't have a power antenna. Instructions were somewhat confusing on this but tech support had my issue solved in no time. They were great!!!!!
It was easy to install and It sounds and looks great.
This is a fairly decent after market stereo. Didn't have any problems with the install pertaining to the stereo itself, just a slight snag due to the car it was installed in. It's easy to use and my wife loves to change the colors in it. My only complaint is that the color schemes are a but distracting if you use the presets that change colors on their own. Other than that, everything else is good. Sound quality, install, etc.
Pros: Easy to use, sound quality, install.
Cons: Preset color changing displays are distracting.
Radio reception is terrible. The factory unit this replaced received 25 FM and 10 AM stations near our house. This unit receives 3 FM and 1 AM. Everything else works well, but the reception problem may mean I reinstall the old unit. Installation instructions were not complete, I expected a little more. I ordered from Crutchfield about 10 years ago and the installation instructions were perfect. This time there were many questions during this install. Several wires are not mentioned in the instructions and the fit is not great (small gap at top of unit).
Cons: Radio receptionCrutchfield response on 7/8/2014 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Looking for a low cost temporary replacement stereo this one fit the bill. Doubled the sound quality of the factory installed system that by the way, is amplified and comes with a sub. I would have needed to spend $1200 or more to put another MyGig system in. This gave me way better sound for a much lower price. Takes time to figure out the display lighting but it's pretty cool once you've got it figured out.
Pros: Great sound. Powerful USB charger. Easy to use basic functions
Cons: Takes time to figure out lighting schematics and advanced EQ settings and probably shouldn't be done while driving but once programmed, is not an issue.
The unit sounds great, so much better than what came with my Explorer. Great price on this unit. Setting it up takes a bit and it's not as easy to do some things as it was on the factory unit, but the sound makes up for all that. I don't really care about all the lights, so that's why it got a '4' on the coolness factor. With the instructions from Crutchfield, installation was relatively easy. Of course, I did have an electronic wizard friend of mine helping. But, using the adapting wiring harness and the installation bracket from Crutchfield, the new unit slipped in and fit perfectly. Thanks Crutchfield!
Pros: Sound and cost.
Cons: Little too much lighting for my taste and haven't been able to get rid of gray 'moving billboard' on display. But, very minor compared to sound of unit.
Works and sounds great. The USB is what I was looking for and this works perfect.
Pros: USB , easy install
Great value!! Easy install and sounds good!!
Outstanding value for the dollar. Very easy to use and looks fantastic. Very happy with my purchase.
for a relatively inexpensive stereo, it sounds great! does everything I wanted it to do and more. I still haven't figured out how to operate the color system on the display, but I just finished installing it last night. I love how everything you need to install and go is already included, it makes a lot of sense and relieved some stress. Considering this was the first stereo I installed without any assistance from my electrician friend, it was very simple to install as well. Great find!
Pros: sounds great for the price you pay!
Cons: none so far
really light weight, i thought the box was empty at first. easy to install and not bad all around.
Good product. Would recommend it to others.
Pros: Groovy lights, USB port for IPOD, Easy to read screen with large letters and numbers, and I like having a remote control. Fit my 03 Mazda Tribute perfectly.
Cons: The remote is a little small and I worry about it getting lost. The lights are difficult to figure out.
Recieved my head unit yesterday. Figured i would get the harness hook up out of the way before i tore my car apart. Made the connections with no problem, i had a quick question about one of the wires so i called Crutchfield tech support and they were great, very helpful. So I decided to install the head unit today, i have a 2003 civic. Started dismantling the dash as per the master sheet, not everything was 100% accurate so i had to figure some stuff out myself, but all in all it went alot smoother than i had anticipated. I mounted the radio to the factory bracket no problem and then reinstalled all the trim. The fit was perfect , its so clean it looks stock. I couldnt be happier. Will definitely purchase from Crutchfield again.
Pros: The install was fairly smooth and i love the look and sound from the head unit. Sounds alot better than the stock unit, even with the crummy stock speakers.
Cons: Not everything on the master sheet was 100% accurate so i had to figure some things out for myself.
Bought this as a gift for an older family member who isn't very tech savvy. This was replacement for stock head-unit after CD player stopped working. I was very surprised at the sound quality with stock speakers.
Pros: Ease of use, ability for add-ons, display color choice & brightness, & iPod control
Cons: Volume knob needs textured surface
it fit perfect in my 2001 mustang with kit they sent me sounds great
Pros: sounds great looks great installed easy
Cons: none I found
Stereo was an upgrade for the ubiquitous "factory" unit with cassette player.... Install for a 2005 CRV went flawlessly with Crutchfield install kit. Sound improvement was instantaneous once fired up and even made the factory speakers sound good ( have since replaced factory speakers with a set of decent Kickers). Tests were run on old acoustic recordings as well as more modern tracks and clarity of guitar, bass work and vocals was excellent. For the aficionado I am sure there are minor shortfalls in the sound quality but this unit performs very well for the money. Bottom line my daughter is happy with the sound and it didn't break the bank doing it. Would of given "Ease of use" 5 stars but I have old fat fingers and a certain amount of touch is required to navigate the functions, after a few attempts I was able to operate without a hitch.
Pros: Good sound quality for the money, clarity is good for music types tested, CD player is easy to use, has both 3.5mm and USB access for music input. Allows my daughter to rock the vehicle without rocking the neighborhood....
Cons: None so far
Crutchfield really botched their initial choice ( double dinn ) and connected me with two reps for a solution until I finally got a manager who knew what he was doing. I had much higher expectations of Crutchfield's knowledge
Pros: good sound quality
Cons: flimsy material, poor instruction, very poor display lighting.
Decent radio for value, had open box to save additional money.
Pros: Good price compared to going to the store. Big savings and included all bedfast installation gear which was a huge help and big money saver
Cons: Really can't think of cons
For the money, I gotta say this unit rocks. I wanted something plain jane to charge/link my phone to the sound system in my truck. This fit the bill plus it made the sound so much better
It's all good
Pros: All good
A great stereo for the price. Lots of functionality... a simple install took me 4 hours because of the wiring adapter being incompatible with my Saturn L-300. No fault of the head unit though. A great product
Pros: Lost of features, should be an easy install
Cons: a little lightweight and feels like I could break it easily...
Hey there! I´m telling it straight, my passion is good sound and I´ve installed many different brands and styles of radios in a lot of cars. This JVC KW-R710 CD surpasses many with its great price, impressive graphics and excellent sound. If you like good sound and clarity, I´d definitely recommend this system.
Pros: Impressing! I´d recommend this one for its high quality sound and clarity.
Cons: No comment.
This is a very nice Radio
Does everything I wanted and more. Great sound from the factory speaker. Easy to install. The final install looks like it came with the car. I bought mainly for the USB feature which works great. The unit reads the multiple folders on the thumb drive with no problems. Cool color display that you can set to your taste.
Pros: Sound quality, easy install, ease of use.
The unit is easy to use, and all the color options are a plus. The install was easy with directions sent by E-mail. The FM radio sound is normal for a unit of this price range. I am not real happy with the AM radio reception. The AM reception is not as good as the unit that came stock with the vehicle. I listen to a lot of talk radio and sports on AM and I don't get a clear signal on the outskirts of town like I did before. The CD works good and does not skip on bumps like the original unit. Overall I am happy with the unit, but if you listen to a lot of AM radio, you may look at another model. Still for the money it is a good basic unit.
Pros: Price, Looks, features, and ease of use.
Cons: AM reception quality.
I love my new JVC KW-R710 it was so easy to install everything I needed was in the box the stereo itself is great the features the sound the three color zone went perfectly with my indiglo gauges and works very well with my iPod and my Xm great item great price!
Looks and works great in my grandson's Mustang. Very happy. Easy to install and easy to use. He loves it.
Pros: Perfect fit, easy to use, slipped right in ,no hassle.
I used to have a single din JVC indash and wanted something newer and more compatible with my iphone. This indash is a great product hands down, some of the buttons are hard to get used to due to me being used to my older, simpler indash. The features that this indash has are numerous and can be somewhat overwhelming if you don't need them. Other than this good quality of too many options for its own good, anyone would love this indash. I can hook up my phone directly, my ipod directly and even my cheapo mp3 player that has a male usb port. I am very pleased with this indash an would recommend it to anyone. It took roughly 5 hours to install start to finish. I broke it up into a couple day job due to me not having a block set of time.
Pros: Colors are awesome!! You can set the equalizer the same way as a regular one, or be a pro and mess with the real tunes. Easy to install, and fun to listen to different set ups.
Cons: Just a little confusing to get to all the settings and used to all the buttons.
looks good sounds good had some trouble settee it up
Pros: great price helpful service dept
Cons: following instructions needed help from son
Very nice unit for the price and easy to install
Pros: Buy this unit for my suv and sound great and very easy to install thank to team crutchfield lot of info and send the rigth hardware.
Cons: No comments
I bought this receiver for its 22 watts RMS, iPod connection and b/c it was a double din. I love it, excepting two things. 1) The AUX in seems to be slightly less loud than the USB connection. Initially there was a hiss in the AUX in, but when I changed patch cords, that cleared right up. 2) I have used several HU's with iPod interfaces and they all leave me wanting. When you decide to change artists, it defaults (as all of mine do) to the A's. If you want Frank Zappa, you are screwed. Other than these two things, it's great. I had the unit about a week before putting in an Alpine Power Pack. This HU and this amp coupled with a new sub and amp really produces some amazing sound. I love driving in my car.
Pros: Cool Display colors True 22 watts RMS sounds great
Cons: Poor iPod interface
Bought the JVC KW-R710 for my 05 Silverado. I picked this particular unit for the features as well as the price. The unit has a lot going on, Near endless color and eq variations and plenty of power. The usb port is a great feature allowing one to load a thumb drive full of music and the ability to scroll through them. Crutchfields included detailed instructions made it a very easy and pleasant install. This was my first install and the experience was very good. The posi-connectors are a must making the job much easier. I now swear by them.
Pros: Features,Price, Power, Looks, Fit, Durability, Ease of installation.
Cons: The only con I can find is the volume knob is smooth as glass. Wish it had a rubber coating or texture for easier gripping.
Good product for the price and smfast shipping
It seems to be a good unit, everything works well. The sound is good, well as good as my speakers are. The display is pretty blingy, it takes a bit to learn the settings.
Pros: Good value for the money, plenty of options for not a lot of money. Easy install in a 2013 Silverado. Sounds way better than the stock unit. Big, easy to read buttons and functions.
Cons: Display takes a bit to learn, install adapter kit was kinda pricey.
This stereo was easy to install and sounds and looks great.
very impressive for the money. lots of features normally not found on inexpensive units. like the low amp high amp feature to match speaker output. definite recommendations!
Cons: display maneuvering a little confusing at first
This 2 DIN looks cool and it works great.
Pros: Cool color display, lay out, ease of use and good finishing.
Cons: Sound quality is not as good as it look.
Bought this based on price, watts, and the free install swag. Dropped into the wife's '08 Edge to replace the busted OEM unit. This JVC powers 4 Boston Acoustics in the doors with an old school MTX amp driving a Kicker 8" sub. Very impressed with the sound quality and max volume compared to what it replaced. So very simple to install (thanks Crutchfield!), looks great and sounds even better! Only ding is the menuing system - eleventy bazillion options - waaaaay too many for our needs. Quite a few choices in this price range, get the JVC KW-R710 and you won't be disappointed!
Pros: Sound quality, looks, ease of install.
Cons: "Techno" display option will induce epilepsy :-| And the menuing, but all the brands are like this now...
Great buy for the price works great along with the new speakers I bought really happy
Pros: Color display is great and sounds quality has improved phenomenally.
Cons: Color display is hard to see unless it is dark out. So many settings hard to understand where everything is at first.
This Stereo is great for my son to attach his IPod and listen to his play list. It was very easy to install with the Directions from Crutchfield. The mounting kit makes it look almost like a factory installed stereo. Great Buy!
Pros: Ease of installation and adjustable color settings.
Cons: Did not include steering wheel control adapter.
It's a very good system for the price.
Bought a 2000 VW golf for $800 and was missing the radio. Purchased this radio and got all the mounting hardware and adapters to the factory monsoon sound system and the system sounds mint. Better than more that spend 1000s on
Great product for the price. Some of the features can be a little confusing, but nothing that isn't entailed in the manual!
Pros: Price! Very affordable. Night and day color settings. Loud settings.
Cons: Resets EQ setting, may be faulty wiring.
Great unit as a replacement for the stock unit in our Element EX. Much better sound quality and the addition of the iPod dock, Pandora and iHeartRadio make it a much more versatile unit, too.
Pros: Great looks, solid sound, lots of good features.
Cons: Had to actually read the directions to figure out how to set it up.
I bought this for my teenage daughter. She likes the flexable display lights and the link with the apps.
Pros: Works we'll with the iPhone
Cons: No internal Bluetooth.
product installed easily, as I was replacing another JVC product. I love the features of this system for the price! Other similar products would easily sell for TWICE for what Crutchfield has them for! Thanks again, guys!
Pros: cool looks, loaded with features, love the pandora and iheartradio functionality. Radio will also lower volume automatically when taking a call. Very cool!
Cons: None so far. I wish the product had the bluetooth adapter included with it, but no big deal.
After searching for the best-lookin, best quality, most reasonably priced double din, the JVC KW-R710 is what I decided on. I absolutely got exactly what I thought I was going to get. I was hesitant to attempt to install this on my own as I'm more familiar with the mechanics of the car than I am with the electronics. So, I had someone supervise me, which turned out not to be necessary by any means. This is incredibly easy to install-- plug a few cables and twist a few wires, then bolt that bad boy in there! :) The sound is incredible. It made my stock Infinity speakers sound like brand new speakers. The max volume is pretty significant compared to my original unit. This stereo does just about everything you'd want it to do-- cd, radio, usb, audio jack, Pandora, I Heart Radio, etc.. There's not chance you'll be sitting in your car in the future thinking, "I really wish I had purchased this other unit because I wish I had this option for music right now," because this unit already has it all. There are so many different settings to play with, including to some awesome sound presets and customizable user presets, as well as the lights. Who can forget the lights? I was surprised by just how much you can customize the display. It looks awesome no matter how you set them!
Pros: Sound, customizable, lights, size, appearance, features, price, everything...
Cons: A better remote would be cool. However, its nothing to cry over. :)
My wife loves her music when riding to school. She listens to music constantly on the computer when doing her work. The unit in her VW Golf sounded very tinny. Bass, treble, and mid-range didn't do anything to enhance the quality of the sound.So, I decided on this unit and four Pioneer speakers. What a difference. She is thrilled. It was easy to install and just sounds wonderful.
Pros: Great sound for the money. Nice bass-no distortion at her particular volume preference.
Love the fact I went with a double din a single din just
The coolness factor is I guess my favorite
Pros: No cons, just pros Love everything about it.
Very nice , old school . Love it
Pros: Fuse on back of unit, easy to install. No removable face plate , Remote and variable LED lighting on display (3 colors).
Cons: No removable face plate
VERY SATISFIED WITH THE PRODUCT GREAT UNIT FOR THE PRICES.....
Pros: VERY EASY TO HOOK UP WITH GREAT SOUNDS
VERY SATISFIED WITH THE PRODUCT AND THE SERVICE. INSTALL WORKED OUT WELL.
Pros: LOOKS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL SYSTEM . SOUNDS AMAZING! EVERYBODY THINKS THAT ITS THE BEST.
Cons: YOU NEED TO READ THE INSTRUCTION BOOK ! THATS A GOOD THING.
Great unit for the price, plays great, sounds great,looks great.
Pros: Easy to use, looks good, sounds good
Cons: Don't work with my phone
This is a really great product. I was afraid that the lights would be to bright but the dimmer control is great. It was fairly easy to install. Look up YouTube videos before you start ripping into your dash though, it makes it a lot easier to see it done.
Nice receiver if all you want is the basics. Got this mainly for the USB port. Just put all my music on a USB plugged it in and use it 90% of the time. Hate radio because of all the commercials. Can also use for streaming by plugging in a iPhone. Little confusing at first going thru the menu and making setting changes. There will be a learning curve. Decent sound and it works like it should
Pros: USB port
Cons: Menu little confusing
nice looking unit, well made and functioned as it should. completely satisfied with purchase. only time will tell just how good .
over all happy with this radio but I don't like that the USB port only seems to work with ipods and iphones well it at least doesn't work with my android phone
Made my factory speakers sound so good I'm probably not going to replace them now! The colors are just amazing! Takes a lil while to figure out all the settings, but once u do its a piece of cake. I'm very happy I purchased this head unit!
Cons: Wish the remote was bigger.
Great price, great sound, and cool colors!!!
love it came with every thing i neded took ten minutes to install
Pros: great working love it
Cons: no cons at all
Easy to install good quality cheap price
When this unit was installed in my 2007 Toyota Tacoma last weekend I really didn't know what to expect. But after the installation was complete I couldn't believe what I was hearing. The difference between factory and aftermarket systems is like night and day. It really DOES make a difference. The installation was not that difficult as long as you follow the mastersheet instructions. It takes you step by step through the install process. The look of the system is so cool. After installation it appears as though it was installed at the factory. The three different lighting features are an added plus. I ordered this system and a pair of Kenwood 6 1/2" speakers for about $140.00. If you were to purchase these same items at another retailer you would be out of pocket for well over $200.00. In short, aftermarket is the way to go. You can't go wrong with this system.
Pros: The look, the sound, the ease of installation.Good quality system. Lots of features for the money. You won't be disappointed with the JVC KW-R710 CD receiver. Highly recommended!!
Cons: No cons. It's just taking some time for me to learn everything this unit will do.

16 Bit D/A Converter: The JVC KW-R710 utilizes a 16-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.
MOSFET Amplifier: The JVC KW-R710 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 KW-R710 are as follows:
Note: When you are using the KW-R710 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 30 (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 50.
2.5V/4CH Preamp Output: The KW-R710 is equipped with two pair of 2.5V preamp outputs (Front, Rear/SW). You can set the Rear/SW preamp outputs for connecting a pair of full-range rear speakers (through an external amplifier) or for connecting a subwoofer (through an external amplifier). When set for rear speakers, the rear outputs operate with the unit's fader control. When set for subwoofer, the outputs are non-fading.Subwoofer Controls: When the unit's Rear/SW preamp output is set to Subwoofer, you can set the cutoff frequency of the low-pass filter at 55Hz, 85Hz, or 120Hz. You can also adjust the head unit's subwoofer level between -8 and +8 (separate from the main volume level).
Pro EQ: The KW-R710 is equipped with JVC's Pro EQ. The integrated equalizer offers 12 preset sound modes (Flat, Hard Rock, Jazz, Pop, R&B, Talk, vocal Boost, Bass Boost, Classical, Dance, User 1, or User 2) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The User modes allow you to manually adjust the head unit's 3-band parametric EQ (Frequency, Level, and Q-Factor).
|Bass||60, 80, 100, 200 Hz||+/- 12 dB (-6 to +6)||1.0, 1.25, 1.5, 2.0|
|Midrange||0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.5 kHz||+/- 12 dB (-6 to +6)||0.75, 1.0, 1.25|
|Treble||10.0, 12.5, 15.0, 17.5 kHz||+/- 12 dB (-6 to +6)||Fixed|
Note: You can store Pro EQ bass, middle and treble tone settings for each source (CD, AM/FM, Aux, USB, iPod, Pandora/iHeart Radio).
Sound Enhancements: The head unit provides further sound enhancements for your car audio system.
Key Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.
3 Zone Variable Color: The head unit's variable color illumination is separated into 3 Zones (Zone 1, Display Zone, and Zone 2). The KW-R710 offers 29 color presets and custom colors for each of these zones. You can choose one of these color presets or select the ColorFlow mode which scrolls through all 29 color presets. Additionally, there is a User preset, allowing you to individually adjust the intensity of Red, Green, and Blue from 0 to 31; resulting in approximately 30,000 custom color options. You can choose to use the same color for all 3 Zones, or use a different color for each separate Zone.
Lighting Effects + Color Guide: You can select a preset color change pattern/speed for all 3 Zones (Zone 1, Display Zone, and Zone 2). Choose from Spectrum, Groove, Techno, Emotion, Relax, and Night Sweep. When activated, the Color Guide mode changes the display and all button illumination to white when menu settings or music list search are performed.
Brightness & Dimmer Control: The unit offers a daytime and nighttime brightness setting for the LCD, button, and USB input terminal. You can adjust the brightness level of each zone manually from 0-31. The unit's dimmer control can be set automatically or manually; select "Off" for daytime brightness setting, "On" for nighttime brightness setting, or "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).
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 start position).
Demo Mode: This unit features a Demo mode which can be turned On or Off within the menu.

There is no mounting sleeve included for a Euro- or Custom-mount installation. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.
Wireless Remote Control: The KW-R710 comes supplied with a wireless remote control (RM-RK52). The remote contains Attenuator, Sound, Source, Tracking, and Volume functions. The remote operates off of a single CR2025 3V Lithium-cell battery (included).
Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM 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). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

THere are more then three colors, you will find a gold [ DUSTIN RAY Nov 12, 2015 ]
Mostly red, blue, green, and some orange/pinks. The digital display can be tinted a gold color, but the side and bottom colors not so much. [ Ross Potter Nov 12, 2015 ]

You can change the colors.. There's more than just three colors... The main colors are red blue and green but you can adjust them to make other colors... You can get all kinds of colors from it. [ HARLEY Nov 12, 2015 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: This JVC has two pairs of RCA pre-amp outputs, and one of them can be set to only output bass, specifically for a sub. You could connect any powered subwoofer to those outputs, or you could match a non-powered subwoofer up with an amplifier, and connect the amplifier to those outputs. Here's a great article about how to choose your subwoofer. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Oct 19, 2015 ] Staff

i've had this stereo about 1.5 years now and have never had that issue. i have had the stereo mysteriously change the lighting effects from my setting to the display mode but that is the only issue i've had. other than that the stereo has been great for me. [ KEITH May 15, 2015 ]
This JVC unit was a POS. My unit would shut down and the only way to bring it back was to hit the reset button. Every time I did this I would lose all of my custom settings. I pulled this POS from my car and tossed it in the garbage. Also every thing worked fine for about a month before it stated acting up. It progressively got worse. [ JUSTIN May 15, 2015 ]
No. We have had no problems and couldn't be happier. [ YVETTE May 14, 2015 ]
I have not experienced any issues as you noted. I have noted a second or less loss of power but, never lost time however. [ MICHAEL May 14, 2015 ]
MIne does this too. Drives me crazy. I change it all the time and it never fixes it.n [ SARAH May 14, 2015 ]

I don't know. I don't use phone with it. Sorry [ TROY A Feb 25, 2015 ]
This works with Android. Buy an auxiliary cable (1/8 male to 1/8 male) and plug it in. The USB port will only charge your phone but not allow you to control the device. That feature only works with Apple devices. [ Eric Feb 25, 2015 ]
I bought this stereo for my wife's car, and I set it so the bottom color is a red the same tint as her dash instruments and the top a changing color, and she loves it. [ Ross Potter Nov 12, 2015 ]

Yes. Has a rear speaker/subwoofer audio jack. You have to set the stereo up accordingly. [ Nicholas Aug 23, 2014 ]
yes [ mar Aug 22, 2014 ]
Yes, if they are powered. The rear line level outputs can be switched to SUB mode to control a dual voice coil sub or 2 singles. [ DEAN Aug 22, 2014 ]
Yes [ JOHN Aug 22, 2014 ]
The buttons you are referring to come on a key chain so I do not think that is possible. They work great as is. [ Eric Aug 07, 2014 ]
It doesn't come with the controls. It has the ability to use the controls that come stock on some cars. So to answer your question. No you won't but it does come with a remote. [ JOSEPH Aug 06, 2014 ]
The question you are asking is hard to understand. There is not steering wheel button attachment with this product. That you buy separate. But it does not make sense to buy that adapter if your car doesn't already come with steering wheel buttons. I do have them on my 1999 Acura CL 2.3, however I didn't buy the steering wheel buttons adapter which I think costs 150 bucks! lol. I hope that helps. If your car does not come with steering wheel buttons, I don't see why you are asking this question. First you have to have a car with factory steering wheel buttons that control the audio from its factory reciever. I hope this helps. [ MARCELO Aug 06, 2014 ]
Not positive I think so must cars have the space for the higher model functions just check your wheel you shoould be able too [ JOHN L Aug 06, 2014 ]
Not positive I think so must cars have the space for the higher model functions just check your wheel you shoould be able too [ JOHN L Aug 06, 2014 ]
No you can not, unless you change your steering wheel. [ PRENTIS Aug 06, 2014 ]
I dont know if it would display phone call while it is hooked up to radio but it changes colors while playing. It sounds very good. easy to install. I would recommend this radio. [ lance Aug 08, 2014 ]
Hello, So the display changes based on what mode your in. If your listening to the radio it says the stations name and sometimes the name of the artist and song. If your listening to the cd it will display the cd info. All in all I love this deck and highly recommend it for the price. And you will NOT need new speakers (at least not right away). [ ANTHONY Aug 08, 2014 ]
The screen display can change colors and you can also select between the applications you are running or using (MP3, iPhone, iPod). We bought this for my Son's 2001 Celica GT and it fit great. With the kit we had installed in about an hour. Looks and sounds great. Did not need to change or upgrade the speakers. We watched a video on You Tube (highly recommend doing this) and it was a piece of cake to install. Hope that helps. [ Eric Aug 07, 2014 ]
This is a great radio for the money and yes Susan it does display other features that come with the radio such as tuner and CD. One really cool feature is that this receiver can be set to different colors and also to change colors. I have learned also that if you type the make and model of your car, the website will tell you if the radio will fit your car. This makes the decision making much easier especially if you don't know much about cars and/or radios. Also, it is not necesary to get new speakers when you purchase a new receiver but with the age of your car being what it is I would recomend it. You don't want to put in a new receiver and be disapointed because the speakers won't perform to the new standard. I hope this helps and good luck with your new receiver. The folks at Crutchfield will make the whole process seemless and thier professional staff can answer all your questions after the sale as well. [ PHILLIP Aug 07, 2014 ]
Well this indash is a "double din", which means that if you have a "single din" or a slim spot for your radio and cd and cassette player. You'll have to cut into your dash. The indash features cd fm/am pandora iheartradio and a usb port which works best with obviously apple products. It comes with a small remote that contols volume and skipping songs. You should only get speakers if the stock speakers are going out, so no you don't need new speakers. The wiring harness and antenna that you get when you buy the indash will connect the speakers and antenna for the radio. I enjoy the features that this indash has but if i am thinking right, 96 camrys have a single din indash. [ JAVIER Aug 07, 2014 ]
This is a great unit that offers a lot of performance and features for the price.It displays the information about cd's and radio station call letters, clock and much more. It will also cycle through and display other functions. The colors change every few seconds and it has multiple colors. To use it with factory steering wheel controls, you have to buy an expensive adapter. You wouldn't have to get new speakers but they make a huge difference in most cars. My other vehicle is a 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix and the factory speakers were total junk. Replacing the rear 6x9's and the front door speakers made a huge difference. [ Jimmy Aug 07, 2014 ]
It's a basic double din radio that I bought for my cousin as a birthday gift for his truck. It sounds great with his stock speakers but his was also a lot newer truck. So the speakers could handle the wattage of the radio. I would suggest that you buy new speakers so you can enjoy the sound quality. As far as the display it's pretty analog in appearance. But the color is changeable to multiple settings in 3 zones. I own a Pioneer AVH-X3500BHS myself so I trust the brand. [ JOSEPH Aug 06, 2014 ]
Hello Susan great choice for an upgrade for your Camry, if you are installing it yourself Crutchfield makes it very simple and easy my fiancé did it herself. This system has everything you need to enjoy all you music from the iPod connection, usb port Bluetooth and Pandora. The screen display all the function of any high end radio including the name of the person you are calling and the last several call you made and its also voice activated. my fiancé has a 1998 Lexus es300 and it made her speakers sounds much better. there is a lot you can do with this system she loves it. [ DELPHINUS Aug 06, 2014 ]
I would replace the factory speakers because they just don't have quality sound I'm not sure what you're willing to spend but replace them with Ifinity, polk audio, or if those are too high get pioneer. [ JOHN L Aug 06, 2014 ]
The display has many many options on what is displayed. I chose to leave the clock and radio station displayed full time. It briefly will change to let you know if you've changed inputs. For instance if you hook up your ipod or change to cd. I haven't fully learned all the options but that's what I know so far. As far as speakers, I am using the stock speakers and it sounds good. Better than the stock radio. I really like this radio and do highly recommend it. Hope my answers help. [ GREGORY A Aug 06, 2014 ]

No, the faceplate isn't removable. The outer black piece that surrounds the stereo is actually a separate plastic piece that needs to be attached to the inside of the center console in order to fill in a slight gap that would surround the stereo if you left it out. It has two screw holes that will line up with the existing air vents in your truck. Once you get this piece in place and the stereo mounted, the dash will fit back perfectly. [ DARIN Apr 02, 2014 ]

I plugged my Samsung Galaxy S3 up to it and it worked just fine. I hope this helps. [ STACY Mar 16, 2014 ]
Didn't work with my Samsung Tracphone ,which is a smart phone. works great with usb stick reads songs and titles. If you are not with Tracphone it will probably work with your LG. I can't believe it came with the brackets and wiring plug for free . It has a lot of features for the price and sounds are terrific. [ WAYNE K. Mar 15, 2014 ]
Yea it will work. Use the auxiliary input or get the Bluetooth upgrade. [ Nicholas Mar 15, 2014 ]
You have to go into the settings and fund demo. Turn it off and it will stop that mode. If you happen to loose all power the the unit, you have to do this process again. Like if you happen to bed a jump start or new battery. [ EDWARD Aug 17, 2015 ]
