Summary: I purchased the JVC KDPDR40 receiver because I had owned 3-4 other JVC car receivers previously, and have up until now thought very highly of their products. Firstly, the buttons on the front don't make much sense, or clearly state what their purpose is.
Summary: This is a great simple to use car/truck stereo. I like the duel control for the ipod. It plays "home made" cd's very well. I compared it to the Sony and the JVC was a winner hands down. The ipod cable is run to my glove box - so no one knows I am listening to my ipod in my truck.
Summary: There really isn't much to say about this receiver. It just works. The AM/FM reception is quite good, the CD functionality is very good and includes playing MP3 or WMA files on a CD-ROM, the controls are big and well-lit, and the sound quality is excellent.
Summary: This product is okay except the button to change folders and songs is too small if you want to use MP3 CDs. I don't know how many times I meant to hit the song skip button and hit folder skip instead. When skipping on a regular CD, the folder skip button does nothing.
Summary: Over all this is a nice stereo. Sound quality is excellent, the iPod support is a rare find, and over all this stereo is well worth it. Beware, however: Since this stereo is relatively new, if you lose the faceplate(or it gets stolen), there are no replacements.
Summary: I've had this car stereo / ipod player for about 2 weeks now and I'm very satisfied. It's easier to program and operate than it at first looked and I love the dual mode of ipod control (from the stereo or the ipod).
Summary: I asked the JVC pre-sales about the nano 3rd gen and they said it would work. I bought one and the ipod controls do NOT work. The only nanos certified to work are: This unit is only compatible with the following iPod: IPod mini IPod G4 IPod photo IPod nano (1st and 2nd generation) IPod with video...
Summary: While not certified to work with an iPhone, this stereo appears to be completely compatible. The iPhone charges. It can be controlled with the stereo or (by changing modes) with the phone itself.
