Not-So-Good Interface

H. Hauflaire, Amazon
13 February 2009
  • 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.

Works like a champ!

dave "dave", Amazon

  • 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.

Your iPod's new best friend

Aaron Gleason, Amazon
25 October 2008
  • 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.

It's Okay

BaRoLA Man, Amazon
24 October 2008
  • 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.

Nice, but beware!

J. Ross "JR", Amazon
22 October 2008
  • 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.

Not Perfect but Darn Close

Craig Houchin, Amazon
27 July 2008
  • 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).

iPhone friendly

  • 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.
