A full-featured wireless remote is include for controlling receiver functions.
Top customer reviews
1) It is not user-friendly. I'm a pretty tech-savvy guy but it took a long time to figure out the nuances to this machine.
2) Is not compatible with steering column controls
3) Even with the JVC iPod adapter, the unit does not show the artist name (oddly it shows the song name and album but not the artist)
4) If I want to play just my U2 files, I have to scroll for about 3 minutes through all the musical artists arranged in alphabetical order
5) Even with the JVC satellite radio adapter, I have major issues with lengthy "loading" and the unit will sometimes just stop recognized the satellite feed (and I have to turn off/on the entire unit)
Overall, I would not recommmend this unit. Spend the extra money and get a high end unit that can display a bigger menu and produce a cleaner sound.
Sounds good and has seemingly good reception. CDs load and play without issue. Settings seem easy enough to change.
USB is nearly worthless-25 character filename limitation, 128 character tag limit. This means I can't copy music straight from music folder to a USB thumbdrive-I have to chop the filenames and remove as much of the tagging as possible. This isn't 1998-I don't know why JVC can't simply read long filenames like every other device out there while ignoring the parts of the tag it doesn't understand. On another note, Data CDs don't seem to have this limitation.
This unit have almost everything you would need on your head unit.
The bluetooth feature for your cellphone works perfect.
The sound quality is very great.
The low points are
(1 ) When you eject the CD the music on usb drive stop temperarily.
(2) The demo take up too much time over the regular display.
(3) The spectrum analizer could be more fancier
(4) The control buttons display is poor at night the dim feature is
My final rating is 9.5 out of 10 because you will never get another
good head unit with all these feature for this low price on a good
brand like JVC.
1) Doesn't support MP3 with lower sample rate such as 11kHz
2) Playing WAV file from CD is not supported
3) Accessories like blue-tooth and ipod adapters are not included with the receiver
In the end this brand and model was the winner. Here is why:
-I wanted/needed a Double Din format receiver (the previous ones were single DIN). I have bought recently a Honda Accord 2000 that was using the factory installed stereo and I wanted to replace it and utilize the available space.
-It has a nice design and well distributed traditional push buttons that you can feel without looking at them unlike the newer trend of flat not-raised buttons and touch screens.
-It reproduces MP3 CDs which I have a lot and WMAs which I don't like but it's not bad to have it. It has a USB port in the front for external media (Thumb-drives or external HDDs).
-You can see the time clock at any time regardless of any other function taking place, it has its own dedicated spot on the display.
-It only has 8 characters available for displaying song information compared to my previous ones which had 11. I thought it would be very bad but I performed a quick test with my previous one by placing my thumb on top of the last 3 characters and it did not bother me that much (because it SCROLLS).
-The most important feature that I was insistently looking for was a better way to handle the EQUALIZER I'm so glad with this function on this model. You can adjust BASS, MIDDLE, and TREBLE with very simple steps unlike many other receivers including the ones I owned before. You don't have to look at the thing but you may if you wish... Once you locate the "Select" button, push it once then you can adjust BASS with the big Volume knob, push it again and you get to the MIDDLE frequencies, push it one more time and you reach to the TREBLE, it's that easy. These levels are stored per each of the 5 customizable equalizer profiles. You cannot control the frequency bands you are adjusting but it sounds great regardless. If you keep pushing the "Select" button you can adjust other stuff but this time the manufacturer gave priority to the EQUALIZER functions and i totally agree with that, this is the best way for me because these are the settings that i use/change more often.
-If you had a USB device plugged in when you turned off the engine, then when you turn it back on it resumes playing where it left off, if the device is not present then it still asks you for it without changing to another source then if you plug it back in it resumes normally.
-I did not buy it for the other features like Bluetooth or hands free calling or Satellite radio so I cannot say anything about those.
-I also tested the AUX input with an Ipod and it worked well.
-When I decided to buy it no body was selling it at the stores, I had to buy it online. But when I tried, 3 days after I placed my order they informed me that it was not in stock. I called 3 other listed sources but they did not have it either. It seemed to me like it was or was going to be discontinued soon. Then I decided to buy it used from Amazon Marketplace in "LIKE NEW" condition and it was indeed pristine. It has been 2 months since I bought it on 06/03/10 and I'm very happy with it.
