Installed easily and does what it said!

  • Summary: I have a 2003 VW Jetta and needed something to consolidate the mish-mash of oddities I had for hands-free calling and BT audio in addition to helping me find good quality audio for my daily commute. After many long attempts to locate the features I needed, I found this unit - double-din, Blueooth audio and phone, HD Radio, and a USB for when all else fails. It has CD too, but I really don't need that. It arrived yesterday night; and today by midday it's working great.

  • Summary: Unit was on back order for a couple of weeks. But it was worth the wait. Using the supplied wiring harness and instructions specificaly written for my Avalon, it got installed in less then 45 minutes. Lots of great features. Best bang for the buck.
  • Pros: Ability to customize display colours, JVC quality, Best bang for the buck.
  • Cons: had to wait for the next availiable shipment.

Discontinued now - but if you can get one it rocks.

  • Summary: Bought to replace a Sony single-DIN. I love it. Intuitive controls that are very easy to use when driving. Good preset EQs. Almost limitless color choices. Where else are you going to get HD Radio, Bluetooth and Sat Radio Ready without a touchscreen. Highly recommend.

JVC Radio

Carl, Crutchfield
6 February 2014
  • Summary: Great Radio
  • Pros: Works great, syncs easily with Bluetooth phone, plays ipod songs seamlessly. HD radio is excellent. Have no idea how high the volume will go because I have to back it off before I get to the high end.
  • Cons: Unclear installation instructions, required a call to tech support who quickly resolved the issue.

  • Summary: I got this as a gift from my mother in law. I really like this jvc unit, there are many sound options, colors and many other setyings
  • Pros: I really like the Sound quality, multi color settings, ipod auxiliary, pandora.
  • Cons: Doesn't fit properly in a 2012 scion xd, it sticks out to far leaving part of my dash that suppose to click tight, is now loose and there is 1/4 inch gapes on both sides. Blue tooth works but .......i would rate it a 2. Due the poor call quality, you can hear the person your talking to but unless you have the bluetooth mic right by your mouth and talk loud they wont hear you clearly.
