Smartphone options

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.

Added cool stuff

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.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

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.

    Audio Section

    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:

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

    Pro EQ
    Frequency Level Q
    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.

    • Digital Track Expander: The digital Track Expander utomatically enhances compressed music files and restores the original richness of the recording.
    • Bass Boost: The unit's Bass Boost enhances low bass frequencies.
    • Loud (Loudness): This feature boosts low and high frequencies to produce a well-balanced sound at a low volume level. You can set this feature to High, Low, or Off.
    • 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 -5 to +5.

    Key Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.

    Display Features

    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.

    • Zone 1: Zone 1 consists of the rotary knob and the push buttons around the knob, plus the Aux and USB input.
    • Display Zone: The Display Zone consists of the front-panel LCD.
    • Zone 2: Zone 2 consists of the Preset buttons and eject button.

    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.

    2-DIN Chassis: The JVC KW-R710 has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double-DIN"), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets. 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.

    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.

    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 ]

    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 ]

    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 ]

    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 ]
    It will display the track and artist info on the radio and cd's. You do not need to replace speakers but it sure is fun if you do. [ GERID  Aug 06, 2014 ]

    Only has one fm band, but has 18 presets to that one band [ JOHN  Apr 29, 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 ]
