Questions & Answers
I love my JVC as well, and I use it every day
The answer is yes
The unit appears to lack Bluetooth, but I don't see it anywhere. It does not, but I was expecting it to.
If it's after market, you'll need a pro to install it as some cars have anti theft stereos to the point that your car will not start with out a code after you install it. Whether to install or not should be discussed with Ford.

Despite reading through all the details, it seems I made a mistake when I placed my order. I have experienced a number of issues with the clock over the years. No matter how many times I reset it and it will be fine for a day or two, then it only wakes me up at random times, so I change it back and have the same experience the next day. If you are interested in working with XM, you will have to send another $30+. I cannot set it to any color other than black and white, and the radio constantly changes colors, regardless of what setting I choose. Although this is cool, it is There is never a correct info screen on the screen.
Having purchased this player after the original Kenwood player broke after several years, I installed it and found that although the display scrolled as though it were playing, no sound was being produced by After checking my hook up, I was sure it was correct. Contacted the 800 number for tech support. The representative had me connect a temporary speaker to a single output to determine whether the problem was with internal wiring or the player as a whole. From the LF pole to the unit, a new wire was run. While disconnecting and pulling the OEM speaker to get it out of the way, I found that it was a There is a 5 ohm resistance. I discovered that the player was rated for 4 to 8 ohms in the owner's manual. I bought new speakers and the sound is excellent.
I had no issues with the installation. It took me about twenty minutes to set it up and flip through the options. The sound is as good as it can be with my factory speakers in front (2004 Grand Cherokee with base stereo), and 8-ohm weather proof boxed speakers in the back. To power the factory speakers in the front, I am using the head. A RCA cable is feeding 2 amps into There is one 400 watt amp (which also acts as a crossover) in the system There are speakers for weather. A single ohm 12" subwoofer is being powered by the second amp, which is 2100w. It was a breeze using the "speaker output" setting of the head, which has a "rear/sub" option where the rear line out is concerned. I tried to make it sound as good as possible using my cheap to low mid-range gear A line gear is used. It has been my experience to have been happy with JVC heads in the past, so I expect the same from this one. My review is updated on all of my social media, and I will do the same for this one as well should my head die before I've had it for a long time.
I do not understand any of the complaints that I see. In the case of legibly written names, I will address them as follows The following are examples of the meaning of the term 1. A Bluetooth connection is not available. There are several negative reviews complaining about the lack of Neither the product description nor the image indicate whether Bluetooth is included. This is not the same as the statement immediately below that says, "This item is available in an updated version," that links you to the new version of this head, model KD-. Is there a version of the TD70BT with The second point is to emphasize a bit more. It is necessary to reprogramme the player every time the car is restarted. There is no doubt that the installation was a failure. There is both 12v constant and 12v ignition to the ignition, or the constant was not connected For factory analog heads with dials and position memory for the channels, there is no 12v constant at the radio, but a fuse box can provide one. The third point is It is not mentioned in the manual what the Orange/White wire is for. It refers to illumination. In fact, that's the case. You will need to connect this to the output of your interior illumination dimmer, otherwise known as the dome/dash dimmer. Wires connecting the factory radio harness to some cars may not be present. You do not have to do it If you remove it, the unit will light up as expected, it just won't work together with the In terms of "junk", "too hot", "should not be bought", etc. It is important to provide context and details for those in need. It's possible that installation mistakes, poor consumer knowledge, or even a third party vendor selling the same radio trying to beat a competitor are to blame for those complaints. When I buy anything online, I read the worst reviews first. I can tell which reviews are reliable or whether they are from people who didn't research the product, didn't know how to operate it, didn't install it properly, or are using it incorrectly. Sometimes you'll be astonished at how quickly an otherwise 5-star product can fall to 3 stars if it's not properly advertised. This is the short version of the sentence This is the case for The unit is superb for the price given its many features and the well-known, reputable brand behind it. It does the best I can with my poor equipment. As long as you are skilled with installs, you won't have a problem with directions or the harness, especially if you get a harness that accepts a As I upgrade the rest of the equipment and resolve issues, I will update as soon as possible.
The picture looked like it had buttons for presets, and I assumed it had them. The mistake I made was not paying more attention to what I ordered. I find it works fine and looks decent as soon as you turn off all the annoying lights and button sounds.
It is a good deal for the price. A USB port located on the front allows you to input data as well as charge devices. While it is doing this, it does so at a rate about half that of a car lighter plug-in. The little remote is a great feature because it allows you to steer while the GPS is tracking. I haven't used it as an input yet, but it seems straightforward. The GPS keeps better track of your location without pulling over. XM doesn't interest me, but I'm sure it could have been switched over from another XM for a similar price. The product I purchased was of excellent quality.
So far, I really like it that I might purchase another for my truck to replace an aging JVC KD-model This is A330.
My touch got very hot! Then, I let the boat panel cool down again as it got hotter, and then I went out without switching it back on. Yes, I have the fuse box on the radio, and the fuse box is on and everything is good! Yeah, I'm out too! THE RADIO GETS HOTTER AFTER PLAYEN! Then, please do not adjust all the fuses, there will be an audio error! The fact that I bought another brand and not JVC makes me think I should return it for a refund. A TIME PLAY GREAT 6 is a time management game. A 5 speaker two-way system! SPEAKERS ARE IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR BOATSPEAKERS GET SIX. SPEAKERS WITH 5 2WAY SPEAKERS! When it got hot, Jam Radio was dead. I never experienced that before! The even-numbered EVEN PLAYEN. We have 0 hours left! I WILL DEFECT YOU FOR SURE! A RETURN IS AVAILABLE IF THE SELLER IS WILLING TO I HAVE CHANGED REMARKS! I DO NOT WANT TO PAY!.
was really happy with the radio and spent a lot of time checking to see if it would fit my 2007 PT Cruiser. A yes response has been given. I did not realize I would have to purchase a separate mounting kit on my own in order to install it in Clearly, that should have been listed in the description, so I would have ordered it right then. Now I have to wait to get the extra piece. When ordering, it would be nice to have all the instructions included. I am looking forward to getting my new radio installed.
