Jensen VX3010

The VX3010's screen motors out to give you the big picture when you're driving.

Multimedia on the highway

The VX3010 fits in many cars that won't accommodate a double-DIN receiver, and it still provides a big 7" screen as a control center for your entertainment. The VX3010 includes front and rear audio/video inputs so you can add on a portable audio player, camcorder, or other video sources.  And for the safety-minded, a dedicated input on the rear panel accepts an optional rear-view camera.

Want to keep your steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

    don from panama city fl on 6/8/2015

    with the dash kit it doen't come all the way out, I have had trouble with this thing sence I have had it should have sent it back.

    Pros: none

    Cons: junk

    Crutchfield makes this a winner

    Beeze from North Carolina on 4/18/2015

    1999 GMC Safari
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This receiver cannot be flush mounted which is deceiving from the Jensen website photos that make it appear flush mounted. I wasted a lot of time trying to make it flush mounted like the Jensen photos until i called Crutchfield for help. It has to stick out about 3/4" so the screen can rotate up. In fairness any screen will need to jut out a bit since you may have heater controls above the receiver as my vehicle does but in most cases the screen is stored for radio or audio operation so the unit just looks funcky sticking out with the screen stored. I am a little disappointed in that from a coolness factor but I do like all the features that include a camera and mic input for my phone operation. If you have an iPhone you get lots of extra features but my Blackberry can only do the basics with this receiver. Again Crutchfield saved the day with my vehicle's specific wiring so I could easily set up the rear view camera. The Jensen wiring chart had blurred circuits for the camera tie to the reverse gear circuit and to the parking break circuit for the DVD to be allowed to play. Frankly, I had hoped for greater flexibility with my smartphone and links to features like GPS and maybe video viewing. After a few operations the touch screen is a little loose. It does have a feature that lets you adjust the viewing angle top to bottom but no side to side. The side to side would have been useful since my dash is slanted toward the driver.

    Pros: Nice touch screen, easy rear view camera setup, easy Blue Tooth linkup for basic phone use,

    Cons: Unit protrudes from the mounting face about 3/4" so make sure nothing needs access. In my vehicle tall cups in the cup holder will interfere with screen operation from stored to upright. Also the beveled cosmetic cover ring from Jensen that fits around the unit must be used since it has slots cut ins for the screen braces. The nicer flush ring fill with the Crutchfield mounting kit cannot be used. The end result is a less than professional finished look but with this unit you have no choice

    Great deal on Jensen Car Stereo

    I love it

    rlneel from Cincinnati Ohio on 1/31/2015

    2006 Jeep Liberty
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    For the price this stereo is great! Looks awesome in my 2006 Jeep Liberty. Yes the stereo sticks out a little bit but it has to for the screen! The screen opens when you turn on the car and closes when you shut off the car. It also 'remembers' if you already had the screen closed when you turn off the car and when you start the car again it will remain closed. Bluetooth works great, iphone playback works great and so does playing music off of a flash drive. One of the reviews says the screen changes. That is only when the stereo is in demo mode which can easily be turned off. Settings are easy to use as well. The quality is great for a stereo under $200 and the touch screen is how you would expect. I love this stereo. It doesn't have customization as far as looks go but it works awesome and looks great for an even better price. Sure there are better touch screens out there but not for this price

    Pros: Bluetoooth, iphone compatible, usb compatible, hands free, touch screen, looks awesome and works great

    Cons: Only 1 usb

    Not worth buying

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I wanted the touch screen without the cost and modification of a double din in my truck. This seemed like the next best thing. Worked pretty well for a little while, but now I can't wait to get rid of the thing. I used to get around 10 radio stations in my town and now I only get about 2 after installing this deck. When I'm in Bluetooth mode it cuts out like it's buffering and seems like it's getting worse and worse every day. Won't let me play DVDs because it says the vehicle has to be in park even though my truck was parked, parking brake set manually, even with truck turned off but ignition on....nothing. I would never buy this again, spend a little more and get something quality built.

    It's good

    Juice from VA on 11/26/2014

    The installation was fairly straight forward. Had a friend who is very tech savy so we worked on it together.

    Pros: Price, functionality and easy to use. Bluetooth is great to have in a late model vehicle. DVD and back up camera is a cool feature to have. Playing Pandora through the bluetooth and using the screen to adjust playlist.

    Cons: The LCD quality is a little to contrasting. The control didn't work.

    I received 2 out of the box that were bad so I really do not have much of a review other than they must have a QC problem.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    good quality , I wish the screen would lock out and the screen changes automatically I prefer it stay on the one I put it on.

    Pros: looks good in the dash much better than original like the usb and the acc port for sirus . and also I hooked up a backup camera that works great too

    Cons: I wish the screen would lock out and the screen changes automatically I prefer it stay on the one I put it on

    Great Product Fast Shipping!!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Ordered this product on a Saturday and had it Tuesday. The product installed flawlessly using the supplied wiring harness. This item was bought for my daughter's car and she loves it.

    Pros: Fast Shipping, Ease of Installation, has multiple uses

    Cons: Some modification to dash trim piece might be required but not a big deal.

    Great Radio

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The touch screen is very responsive and all functions work very well. The Bluetooth quality is outstanding. All of my friends want one after seeing mine.

    Pros: The Bluetooth makes answering phone calls easier and the radio pushes all speakers equally.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Nice radio for the money

    Pros: DVD player and price

    Cons: No display changes, Took a bit of radio knowledge to wire it up Subwoofer output is single rca

    not worth it

    you dont get what you pay for from baker city, oregon on 9/20/2014

    first off it does not fit in a 97 ford club wagon. The unit has to be pulled out almost to the point of it falling out because the dash is slanted backwards. when they say the unit has an out of date display their right. The screen doesnt move like a smart phone its sluggish. This would of been cool 10 years ago. Finding a radio station is a complete pain. the mic is useless. save your money. my wife bought this for me but if I saw it I would of looked the other way Wives dont buy this for your husbands.

    Pros: it plays a dvd

    Cons: everything above. unless you find it in a dumpster dont get it

    2012 Subaru Impreza
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    So to be fair when buying a head unit in the neighborhood of 200 dollars it is good value for money... But not much more. I have an Samsung s4 and the Bluetooth phone is horrible... Scrolling through contacts is not possible and the contacts are all synced to the wrong numbers... Call one friend and get another... Really really annoying. Get past that and the next problem is the unit which boasts how you have have a rear view camera and watch movies is full of it you can only use one feature at a time... So you can't see the rear view camera while playing music and etc. Also I followed the MasterSheet to the letter and the unit would get stuck when the screen came up so I had to put the little pocket on top. Sound quality seems decent but I really cant be a fair judge because I'm in the middle of a full audio rebuild. Generally would say its not bad provided you can make sure the features work but in terms of actually finding the people at Jensen to help it seems impossible because its like they don't exist. But the support at Crutchfield was most helpful and the unit was installed quickly enough.

    Pros: Cheap... A lot of features... Convenient.

    Cons: You get what you pay for Plasticy. Can't do 2 things at once. Phone is impossible. BT audio won't show what's playing only that there's no video signal... Etc

    best radio ever!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    i've had a lot of radios over the years.but this one is the best by far! to install it was so easy took about half hour maybe a hour at most it took longer and was more complicated to take apart the dash than to install this radio! not just that but the bluetooth is amazing! it connects automatically to my phone which is amazing and i love it so much! no more cords all over the place!! which is a big thing for me. something i really like is i can get into my car and wont have to touch any buttons this radio automatically syncs to my phone so in 20seconds my radio is playing right where i left it last time i was in the car!! this is hands down the best radio!

    Pros: style coolness very loud easy to install durable

    Good product and sounds good camera is awesome

    Pros: Sound value and features

    Cons: Touch screen is a little hard to get do what ya won't

    Mediocre at best

    Dave C. from Richland WA on 6/20/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    FM tuner is very sensitive. VERY slow to settle on station in search (AFC lock, I assume) AM very sensitive, probably 75 miles in daytime. CD works as normal, very nice backlight in the CD opening to indicate where to insert the discs. DVD works fine. The fold out touch screen displays an irrelevant image of auto gauges in the background that make the display difficult to read. The image looks like something left over from initial product design that was for demo purposes so viewers didnt just see a blank screen. EQ is defective. Hold the touch button to raise a band level and at the top, the level stops and wont go down when pushing the opposite button, have to turn the unit off to reset it. Display screen size and resolution are fine for close viewing. The screen slides part way straight out, then rotates up to vertical. Problem is that the screen automatically retracts when the vehicles ignition key is shut off. The screen should NOT go into unexpected motion. THIS UNIT DOES NOT FIT IN THE 1990s CHEVY S-10s although Crutchfield says it does. I have a 1995. The display screen hits the shift lever when the lever is in Park. The Users Manual does not explain EQ operation.

    Pros: The audio amps are very clean, 13 W/ch, lower powered amps naturally have lower noise figures (THD). 13 x 4 is more than enough in a pickup truck cab. The unit draws about 1.9A DC current at low volume levels, thats fairly low current draw. The AC current mainly depends on volume level and speaker impedance. The rotary volume encoder has easy to feel steps and has a wide adjustment range, instead of going only a few clicks and turning the volume way up.

    Cons: The display has an image that make the display difficult to read, it looks like something left over from initial product design that was for demo purposes so viewers didnt just see a blank screen. FM preset buttons have a ring that lights to indicate a button press; the beep to confirm is delayed, making the user think the button needs to be pressed harder. Parking brake wire comes out the cabinet in the wrong location, should be with the other power wires.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Bought this as a gift and helped install it. I was really impressed with the functions for the price. I was extremely impressed with the sound quality from the phone/mic

    Pros: It's easy to learn the functions. Really cool looking

    Cons: None at this point

    Good for the money

    Billy from Planet Earth on 6/7/2014

    2012 Ram 1500
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this unit because I wanted a DVD player to watch moves on "while parked" on long road trips. I installed this in my 2012 dodge ram 1500 with ease. I was very impressed with the picture quality and also sound quality. The blue tooth worked well also. I've only had this unit for a couple of days, but I have a feeling that It's a winner. The only unappealing thing is the LCD colors, but how often will you actually be looking at that part of the receiver....

    Pros: easy installation, price, picture and sound

    Cons: color of dislay

    Good Radio

    Good unit, all the features worked. Good sound quality.

    Pros: Low cost, lots of features, good sound quality

    Cons: The mic doesn't pickup very well. Everyone says they can hardly hear me when using the hands free calling.

    Great Product for the Price

    EricD from Washington DC on 5/29/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Installation of the unit was extremely easy. I haven't noticed any real problems with the touchscreen other than you have to be pretty precise when touching buttons or it sometimes won't register the touch - it doesn't have the sensitivity of an iPhone, but then again I didn't have to commit to a 2 year contract to get it for $200, so overall I am very satisfied with the functionality of the touchscreen. The Bluetooth works great when the phone is near the unit - I noticed it would occasionally cut in and out if the phone fell between my legs or the seat - but when connected, the sound quality is great.

    Pros: Easy installation, Bluetooth, Great Sound Quality Hands-Free Calling

    Cons: No major cons so far

    Touchscreen Display

    7" Motorized Touchscreen: The Jensen VX3010 features a motorized-retractable 7" TFT Active Matrix, 16:9 touchscreen LCD display with an adjustable viewing angle. The resolution of the display is 800 x RGB (3) x 480 with 1,152,000 pixels. This unit has touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics, making menu navigation easy.

    Screen Adjustments: The Jensen VX3010 offers a variety of display adjustments to customize the display.

    • Aspect Ratio Modes: The entire screen is extended horizontally to the aspect ratio of 16:9 in Full Mode. The conventional display image has a 4:3 aspect ratio of horizontal to vertical, leaving a blank area on the right and left sides of the display in Normal Mode.
    • Picture Settings: You can adjust the picture's brightness, contrast, and saturation manually between -10 and +10.
    • Angle Adjustment: You can adjust the monitor's angle for better visibility.

    Secondary LCD Display: In addition to the 7" motorized flip-out monitor the Jensen VX3010 features a secondary 8-character/Segment type LCD display. This display can be used during music playback for track & song information. You will need to use the 7" LCD monitor display for menu functions and to view video.

    Hard-Key Controls: In addition to the unit's LCD touch-panel controls the VX3010 also features hard-key controls on the front of the unit, such as Volume, Audio, Play and Display functions. One of the hard-keys is a 3-way rotary encoder audio control.

    Parking Brake Detection: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the head unit's pink wire must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The Jensen VX3010 is equipped with built-in Bluetooth, allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP (Hands Free Profile), PBAB (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Note: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the VX3010. Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some mobile devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the VX3010.

    Hands-Free Communication (w/ external mic): The VX3010 supports Bluetooth hands-free communication from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. You can answer an incoming call from the head unit's touchscreen and carry on a phone conversation hands-free. The included external microphone carries on your side of the conversation while your car's speakers are used to hear the other person. You can make a call by entering the phone number, selecting a contact from your Phonebook list, or using the Call History Log of received/dialed/missed calls.

    • Answering A Call: During an incoming call, the caller's phone number will be seen on the unit's LCD and a ring-tone will be heard through your car stereo speakers. You can then manually answer the incoming call from the head unit's front-panel controls. You can also set the unit to automatically answer an incoming call within 5 seconds.
    • Making A Call: You can make a call using the Jensen in-dash head unit's front-panel controls. Outgoing calls can be made be entering telephone numbers (0-9, *, #) directly via the head unit's touchscreen. You can also search for contact names in your mobile phone's phonebook from the Jensen VX3010 and then make your call. In addition, you can make a call by searching your mobile phone's call history (Received/Dialed/Missed).

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The Jensen VX3010 allows you to play back stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet, or audio player. You can control basic music playback functions (Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track) from the VX3010. Advanced music navigation will still need to be done through your Bluetooth mobile device. This unit does not display song/artist information from connected Bluetooth audio devices. When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.

    Q & A

    Customer Q&A

    8 questions already asked

    I don't know what auto mode is so no help there... The camera will automatically turn on when you are reversing, as the wiring for the camera you use is hooked into the reverse light circuit... The radio will use whatever camera you want to, so your mirror imaging, field of view, and quality is dependent on the backup camera you have... It can use any camera you want, it doesn't come with one. Just make sure you run your camera through video quality RCA cable. [ Ben  Jan 19, 2015 ]
    I'm assuming you are talking about the camera for backing up. That is sold separately, and the field of view would depend on the type of camera. the radio does have an input for the reverse sensing. I think most newer cars have that connection available. You would have to rig up something for an older car; probably hook it to the backup lights, I would guess. I haven't bought a camera for mine. [ Rex  Jan 18, 2015 ]
    I've installed successfully Jensen VX3010 in 2006 Pontiac G6. [ Andrey  Jan 12, 2015 ]
    i installed mine in a 2001 ford f 250 with no problem if this helps you any. [ james  Dec 28, 2014 ]
    Hey Demetrio, In response to your inquiry regarding the Jensen VX3010, I've successful installed it not only in my 1999 Corvette, but also in my 2002 EZGO Golf Cart. Of course, I had to make a few modifications, but they were fairly easy. This is coming from a guy who knows nothing about installations except for reading the instructions and a little common sense. Two things you may want to know, which are, the radio will protrude about 3/4 in. more then normal to allow for the monitor to extract. Also view the directions to apply second ground I hope this helps you enjoy the Jensen DVD player as much as my family and I. Between the Bluetooth option and the DVD, you can't go wrong... Mr. Stacey Boyd of Arizona [ Stacey Boyd /  Dec 28, 2014 ]
    I don't have an android so I can't awnser your question, I have an iPhone and it works perfect with this radio. I love this radio with all the fixtures, and price very affordable . [ CARLOS  Dec 18, 2014 ]
    I used a samsung s5 it plays pandora and music through bluetooth. Also calls come in through bluetooth. So android friendly through vluetooth [ James Anthony  Dec 18, 2014 ]
    Good question . Have not been able to change background either. Sorry I was no help. [ JOSE  Aug 06, 2014 ]
    I don't think so. I looked through the settings, and didn't see any way to. I would have looked in the the manual, but I have misplaced it. [ Rex  Aug 03, 2014 ]
    No u can't Would be nice to at least be able to upload ur own image or something. Decent for the money tho [ Derrick  Aug 02, 2014 ]
    Not that I know of. It's pretty limited as far as visual customization [ Jeremy  Aug 01, 2014 ]
    No! Just from demo mode is all [ Gregory curtis  Jul 31, 2014 ]
    The unit works great ! [ CHARLES G  Jul 31, 2014 ]
    Not that I have found. [ Eric  Jul 31, 2014 ]
    I believe the specs give the size of the unit. I installed it in a 1996 Chevy truck with not alterations required. [ James  Jun 16, 2014 ]
    Auxiliary Input impedance: 10k Power Supply: 11 to 16VDC, negative ground Power Antenna (Blue): 500mA max, current limited protection Amplifier Remote (Blue/White): 500mA max, current limited protection Operating Temperature: -20C ~ 65C Fuse: 15-amp, mini ATM DIN chassis dimensions: 7" X 7" X 2" (178mm x 178mm x 50mm) Got this from the manual on Jensen website [ Derrick  Jun 15, 2014 ]
    I don't have the demensions, those should be available in the details on line. Mine fit nicely into the factory slot in my 92 Dodge truck. One problem you need to be aware of however is interference with what is located above the radio on the dash. My Dodge has climate control levers sticking out far enough so the screen of the Jenson could not open and stand up vertically. I had to build an adapter that makes the radio stand further out from the dash so the screen can open all the way. [ Charles  Jun 15, 2014 ]
    although I can't answer with precision, since it is already in my dash. I can say that it is a standard half DIN height and standard width. I put it in the same place (using the same adapter kit) as my previous Kenwood. When the screen comes out, it of course takes up more visible real estate in your vehicle. and if there are vents (and anything else) located above the area of the radio, it will be blocked. As for the depth it did not look unusually deep. On top of that, It actually protrudes out from the dash about a half inch, which it must, so that the screen mechanism can position itself correctly. I will be reviewing this radio soon. [ Rex  Jun 15, 2014 ]
    I'm not exactly sure about the measurements but I would not buy this radio I had it for a month and returned it the bluetooth feature was horrible it would sound like a skipping CD the United would lagg it was supper slow when it would turn on save up a little more money and get something better [ jesse  Jun 15, 2014 ]
    Product Dimensions: 10.5 x 10.5 x 6.5 inches; 6.5 pounds [ James Anthony  Jun 15, 2014 ]
    Check the spec info. [ CHARLES G  Jun 15, 2014 ]

    Parking Brake Detection: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the head unit's pink wire must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged. [ Krissy  May 05, 2014 ]  Staff
