Summary: I have had this stereo for about 2 years its still works great sounds great i only have a few gripes, one is that the selection for tuning a station is not as simple as 1,2,3 you have to dial it in on the knob so this becomes cumbersome if you are driving. second some of the options can be somewhat confusing when trying to program it. there are some options that as a user you really shouldnt have access to but they are available.
Summary: I bought this to replace the factory stereo in my wife's Kia, which was starting to head south very quickly. I had not installed a car stereo previously, but had few issues installing the unit myself - the hardest part was getting the dash cover to release without damaging it, which took some time.
Summary: Most others have reviewed this deck well enough. For HD radio, this unit is hard to beat. Great output and quality options. The only think I don't like so much about it is the lack of station buttons on the face of the deck. Having said that, it is understandable that they aren't there, given the need for display purposes. Regardless, one of the best stereo options for under $100. Catch it on sale for around $75, and you have a great deal!
Summary: I bought this around Christmas time 2009, specifically because I wanted something that would be easy to install in my truck (as listed by Crutchfield), with Aux input for my iPod. It has lived up to those requirements very well. I had a much harder time dislodging the factory head unit than installing this one ('05 Explorer Sport Trac), and the Aux input works well and is easily selected either via the faceplate buttons or the remote, without taking your eyes off of the...
Summary: I was using a Maximo FM Transmitter to play my MP3 device on my AM/FM/CD stero. I live in southern California and I was constantly trying to find an unused FM channel using the FM transmitter. After a while I decided to upgrade my car stero that had an auxiliary input so I could play my MP3 device. The JVC KD-HDR20 was an excellant purchase. The stero has so many features that I'm still finding features about my new stero that I didn't know about.
Summary: Pretty decent overall radio and easy to install. I installed it in my 87 Honda Accord. I bought a harness and installed the radio in about 30 min. HD signal in LA is awesome. AM radio sounds like FM, no static or popping. FM sounds perfect. Decent sound. EQ is alright, no bass but thats expected at this price range. It can put out some volume with stock system especially CD's. Overall amazing value. I would recommend.
Summary: I was looking for a radio that would allow my wife to plug in her iPhone but didn't want to break the bank. We've also got Sirius so I wanted one that was compatible with that, and was curious about HD radio as well. Looked at several that cost 2-3 times as much and didn't offer much more; for the price I doubt you can find one that fits the bill better. Pros: Nice basic design, nothing fancy. Remote is nice touch.
Summary: I read negative comments about the difficulty it is to preset selected radio stations or the difficulty it is to navigate the controls...seriously, you people need to learn how to read the instruction (its in english). Anyways, JVC has nailed it with this one. HD radio ready feature is great and makes a huge difference in sound. Ipod ready and Satellite radio ready. Best car stereo available at the moment for the price.
