Looking for the Single DIN Model?

The Jensen VM9314 has all the same features as the Jensen VM9314, but in a Single DIN chassis.
If your car needs a single DIN stereo, check out the Jensen VM9424.

In-Dash Receiver Specifications

Receiver Size

Single DIN: 1 DIN dimensions will work with all single DIN installation kits we have to offer. Single DIN radios are the most common size for after-market stereos.

Single DIN slot with flip-out screen: The DIN stereo includes a retractable, flip-out screen. Before purchasing, make measurements to be sure there is no interference with dash accessories such as A/C vents or shift levers.

Single DIN slot with a larger face: Standard single DIN size, but the display is larger then the standard single DIN size. Due to the nature of the larger face, problems may arise when installing in particular vehicles. These stereos are great for single DIN slots where you want a larger screen.

1.5 DIN: This size is very uncommon in vehicles, however this size opening is most commonly found in Chrysler and Chevrolet vehicles.

Double DIN: Approximately 4-inches in height, this size is becoming more common every year. Prior to 2000, this size was typically only found in Japanese vehicles such as those made by Honda or Toyota. Now, it is becoming more popular for many vehicles to be fit with a Double DIN opening.

Double DIN
Faceplate Security

Detachable / Removable faceplate security: The most common anti-theft feature. It allows you to take the faceplate with you, thus disallowing operation, which deters theft.

Security Codes: Mainly a feature in high end video units which do not have a detachable face / screen. Once the unit is uninstalled (or stolen), a security code (or PIN) is required upon reinstallation. Though you no longer have your unit after the theft, the thief also does not have your security code, which makes the unit useless. The hope is the thief knows which units have security codes and he/she chooses not to steal your unit because of the security code.

Ghost technology: This is not commonly used, but can be found primarily in a select number of 2004-2005 head units. It creates an illusion that no unit is installed by appearing completely black when turned off. Potential thieves may steer clear because it appears as though no head unit is installed.

Anti-theft covers: Similar to ghost and hiding faces because they only create an illusion that the face/unit is not in place.

ESN: Stands for Electronic Serial Number. Allows the disabling of the radio and allows tracking if it is stolen.

Security Code
Motorized Faceplate
Some in-dash car stereos feature a motorized faceplate that moves to expose a CD or DVD slot. This is a convenient feature that allows the front display to be larger and easier to read. The positioning of the monitor gives you control over the angle you would like to view information on the stereo.
No
Remote Control
Allows control of specific features and functions from a remote control. Typically they are used to prevent button wear on your radio, or to allow easier navigation of menus.
Yes
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

40 watts x 4 channels
RMS Power Output
The amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS rating, the louder and cleaner your music sounds. The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.
13 watts x 4 channels
Preamp RCA Outputs
RCA outputs, commonly known as preamp outputs, allow you to connect one or sometimes multiple external amplifiers. An in-dash receiver will commonly have one, two or three sets of RCA outputs that can be used to connect external amplifiers and other components. One pair of RCA outputs will typically provide a full range signal that can be used for most subwoofer or speaker amplifiers. Two pairs of RCA outputs can typically be configured as four full range signals, or also as two full range and two subwoofer signals. Three sets of RCA outputs will almost always produce four speaker signals and two subwoofer signals for use with multiple amplifiers.
3 Pairs (Front, Rear, and Mono-Subwoofer)
Dedicated Subwoofer Preamp RCA Output
A dedicated output that has a built-in low-pass crossover for specific connection to a subwoofer amplifier that powers a low frequency driver, typically a subwoofer.
Yes
Preamp Voltage
The preamp output rating is measured in volts (V). The higher the rating, the stronger the signal. This results in less unwanted noise being picked up.
2 volts
Built-In Equalizer
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the stereo receiver is equipped with. The more EQ options, the more you will be able to adjust your music to your liking.
3-band parametric equalizer with 8 selectable tone curves
Display Type
The type of display on your receiver refers to the monitor that is used to display the source information such as song names, radio stations, or track times.

Dot-Matrix Text Display: A simple display which uses dots in specific illuminated color(s) to light up and form letters or numbers that are displayed on the receiver.

Graphic or Motion Display: Typically found in mid to high-end receivers and give your text information and receiver more life by adding motion, backgrounds, or multiple colors to your display. There are types of graphic displays such as 3D Graphic, Motion, and OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) displays. They can range from one color to full color displays and typically allow you to select from one of many built-in animations, background images, screensavers or other graphics to enhance your experience and add an extra bit of personality to your system. Some units also come with software that allow you to load your own customizable pictures or animations.

LCD Monitor Display: Can be as small as 2" or as large as 10". Some LCD displays are motorized for angle adjustment. LCD monitors display full motion video playback as well as your standard text such as track status, radio station information and more depending on the receiver's features.

TFT-LCD Monitor
Display Color
The display color refers to the color of the text and or graphics on the receiver.

Multi-Color: When more than one color is on the display, for example one part of the text is white, while the other part is blue.

Variable-Color: The display colors can be changed by the user. If the default color of text/display is blue for example, the user can change the settings to where the color turns to red. Variable color displays are typically described in detail in the item's description.

TFT-LCD Display: In-dash receivers with a video screen that display multiple colors and often times video such as DVD, navigation or other video sources.

Full Color
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
White
CD Signal-to-Noise
CD Signal-to-Noise Ratio is a key specification that is often overlooked by newbies. The CD S/N Ratio measures how well the CD player silences background noise. Higher ratings in decibels (dB) indicates less noise, and generally a cleaner signal.
95 dB
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.

Yes

Audio / Video Inputs

USB Input
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver features an input to connect a USB device via standard USB or mini-USB. The USB input may be a connection on the front or rear of the unit with an extension cable for connecting devices to the receiver. Some units have an optional input that allows for a USB adapter to be purchased separately and used with the unit.
Front
Number of Front USB Inputs
Number of Rear USB Inputs
Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

3.5mm
This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

Optional
This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

1 Set of Rear RCA A/V Inputs
Front 3.5mm A/V Input

Monitor Screen Features

Touchscreen
If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
Yes
Screen Size
This is the size of the monitor on the unit. It is measured diagonally and in inches. The bigger the number the larger the screen.
Monitor Angle Adjustment

Backward:
This means that the unit is able to tilt backwards so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, this type of pivot means that the bottom of the screen stays stationary while the top of the screen retracts. On Double DIN units this means that the bottom of the screen slides forward while the top of the screen moves down, resulting in a backwards angle tilt.

Forward:
This means that the unit is able to tilt forward so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, a forward pivot keeps the bottom of the screen stationary while the top of the screen moves forward. On select Double DIN units, a forward tilt is sometimes referred to as a reverse tilt. The bottom of the screen remains in the same position while the top of the screen moves forward.

Left/Right Angle (Horizontal):
Some monitors allow the display to be rotated to the left or right in order to have the best viewing angle possible.

Slide In/Out:
A feature mainly found in select Kenwood units. It allows the entire screen to slide in and out. This is different from a forward/backward tilt in that the entire screen moves forward or backwards as opposed to just the top or bottom.

Backward
MirrorLink Compatible
MirrorLink allows connectivity between a smartphone and the aftermarket car receiver. The consumer gets into the car, connects the phone with a cable, and gains access to phone applications through the car stereos controls such as navigation and steering wheel buttons. MirrorLink allows consumers to use their smartphones safely and simply, keeping eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

Expandability Features

Navigation
Built-in navigation is a convenient feature that allows the driver to receive driving directions and guidance.

Some in-dash head units are built-in with the navigation features, while others require an add on navigation box. Other navigation options include portable navigation units that you can take with you or attach to the dash of your vehicle.

Optional (Accessory Required and Sold Separately)
Compatible Smartphones
Some stereos work with iOS (Apple) or Android smartphone operating systems, while some stereos work with both or neither. Find out here which operating systems this stereo is compatible with.
Audio/Video Outputs
Audio/Video outputs are typically used to connect an overhead monitor to an aftermarket stereo. This is the number of A/V outputs that the item has. These outputs are usually RCA Composite cables.

RCA Composite Outputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

1 Video RCA Output

This feature signifies whether or not the receiver is compatible with XM or Sirius Satellite Radio. "Optional" means while the receiver is capable of SIRIUS/XM playback and connectivity, you will still need to purchase an additional satellite tuner, adapter, and/or antenna.
Optional - XM (Accessory required and sold separately)
HD Radio
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver is capable of receiving high-definition digital HD Radio broadcasts by either a built-in HD Radio tuner, or more commonly with the purchase of an optional HD Radio tuner box. Receivers which are HD Radio Ready generally require an additional purchase of a separate tuner.
Yes (Built-In/Included HD Radio Tuner)
Bluetooth Connectivity
This feature refers to whether or not the head unit is able to connect to a hands-free Bluetooth device. Head units that are Bluetooth ready typically require the purchase of an optional adapter or accessory that connects to the rear of the head unit. This optional accessory allows you to accept phone calls through your head unit and speakers. Some head units have built-in Bluetooth hands free capabilities with an included remote-mount microphone or built-in microphone.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
A2DP Music Streaming
The Advanced Audio Distribution Profile will wirelessly stream music and other audio from an A2DP compatible device.
Steering Wheel Control Compatible
In order to retain a vehicle's factory steering wheel remote controls, a wired-remote input is needed on the aftermarket stereo.

Good value, does what it's supposed to do

November 9, 2011

I have had my new VM9324 in my car for a few days now and have the following comments: 1) I have used most every feature on the unit except the iPod interface (I don't own an iPod) or the verbal control, and everything works "as advertised". The stereo is a great value for a HD radio fan -- there aren't any other double-DIN touchscreen units with built-in HD radio in this price range. 2) I don't have an issue with the boot up time. Maybe people have an older version? The sticker on mine says it was manufactured in May 2010. It boots up in 15 seconds, and it will start up in exactly the same place (on a radio station, or on a CD track, or a MP3, or in the middle of a movie) as when it turned off... furthermore, if you're only out of the car for 20 minutes or less -- the unit merely "sleeps" and comes on instantly when you start the car, no waiting for a reboot. If your unit doesn't do this -- maybe it's wired up wrong? 3) I haven't noticed the HD reception issues either. If you leave the receiver in "Auto" mode, the stereo will do its best to switch between the HD and FM signal when it has to.... I have only noticed a slight "echo" a couple times, otherwise it handles HD signal dropouts just fine. The HD radio works as well as the Kenwood in my wife's car, I have no complaints. 4) I have had no lockups or spontaneous reboots. I have a feeling that those who do, are probably suffering from over-heating.. this unit gets hot! Be sure to leave space behind the rear fan. 5) Unlike my cell phone, the VM9324 does not play MPeg4's, WMV/ASF's, or AAC/M4A's. It does like MPEG1, MPEG2, and AVI video files... as well as WAV and MP3 audio. I will have to re-encode some of my vids and music. 6) I do concur that the user interface is problematic. There is no practical way to switch between radio stations while you are driving... the only buttons big enough to touch accurately are the Next and Prev station, you can't jump to preset 15 from preset 1 without a lot of hassle.. you'll have to get used to hitting "Next" 14 times to get from preset 1 to preset 15; the MP3 playlist handling is truly "WTF"?; most of the fonts are too small for just a quick glance (like the clock -- why is the Time page so darn small?). Overall, I am happy with my purchase and would recommend this to anyone looking for a double-DIN touchscreen with built-in HD radio.... I consider it a good value. However, if you don't care about HD radio, you'd probably be happier with a different brand..

Somewhat Dissapointing

June 30, 2011

Ok, so its probably not a bad bang for your buck but after having this radio in my car for a couple of months I would have preferred to get something else. As most folks already mentioned, it takes forever to boot up with time varying from 30-60 seconds. Screen washes out in any sort of sunlight rendering display unusable Its also inconsistent with what the initial screen will show. For example; if I was listening to my SD card when I turned the radio off sometimes I get SD as my source and sometime it reverts to main screen where a source need to be selected again. The touch screen buttons are too small to comfortably selecting things like songs or preset stations and no, I do not have big fingers. The radio has a tendency to freeze with Bluetooth use. At times when I get an incoming call there will be no sound coming in until I re-pair the unit with the phone. The volume level is not retained when the radio is switched on and off. It always reset to whatever default setting for the source is. Whenever the backup camera is used as a viewing source, the volume is muted. I can understand muting volume when the car is in reverse to allow total concentration but why mute it when you are driving forward and want to use it as a rear view mirror? iPod interface is lacking. Just like volume settings already mentioned, most features, like song shuffle or playlist placement in the queue reverts to default when the unit is power off and back on. Sound quality is junk unless you use their iPod cable, which I feel is a scam. If you can live with these shortcomings, then the radio is ok. The bottom line is, I guest you get what you pay for.

Just a few notes, I am not using the voice control, satellite radio, navigation, or backup cam functions so I can't comment on those. Pros: - HD Radio works as advertised - Basic iPod functionality works without the additional Jensen cable, just plug your iPod into the front USB port using the Apple cable - Touchscreen is decently responsive, the interface is generally well thought out (first radio I can change the time on without having to get out the instruction manual) - Good selection of outputs and inputs - Low price Cons: - Takes ~20 seconds to boot up every time you turn the car on, so don't expect to be listening to the radio as soon as you start the car - Display is difficult to read in bright sunlight - No album art on iPod - Takes a few seconds to skip tracks when using the iPod

Worked great for a while

July 18, 2012

I've had this stereo for seven months and it worked great up until now. The sound goes in and out almost constantly. It will be playing fine, then start to skip, and then will stop completely, only playing bass. It does this no matter what I'm using, be it radio, iPod, iPhone, or SD card. I gave it three stars instead of one, because if you get this head unit, and it works fine then it's definitely worth the money.

very surprised!

March 23, 2012

i bought this unit after reading the reviews and was thinking it was going to suck. when i was installing it i had a little trouble becuase i found out my car had a factory amp installed. but once i figured it out. it sounds amazing, only problem is it takes a little bit longer to start up, but its bareable, just sit still in your car until it starts.

Works fine.. I am happy

March 9, 2012

Put it in and works fine. I did a code thing which I foun on the net which meant that you could turn off the DVD no play when handbrake is on thing which is great!! Also fitted the reverse camera and auto connected it to the reverse lights. It works too. Never installed a radio before, so I am very happy with how easy this was to do and how it has turned out. iPod interplay is pretty dumb, so wouldn't buy it if iPhone capability is the top of your list.

Good for the price

February 26, 2012

Just installed this unit today. I like the modular approach to the rear wiring. Not using the internal amp? Don't connect the wiring harness. Not using the backup camera? Don't connect the wiring harness. Takes about 15 seconds to start up - no big deal to me. DVD playback is pretty good, and the screen has a nice refresh rate. Controls are easy enough. USB playback is GREAT - MP3s, AVIs, MPG, MPEG, it does a lot of formats and I'm very pleased with that. Browsing is difficult between folders, and is rather annoying. HD Radio works ok, but reception is rather weak - I recommend an antenna amplifier - which I had. Haven't figured out presets yet... seems more difficult than it should be. Settings for the unit are pretty basic for the functionality it has... disappointingly general in nature. Overall though, for the price, and name brand I'm pretty satisfied with this unit.

Good Value but low quality

February 23, 2012

I knew buying cheap would result in a cheap unit and that's exactly what i got. The remote has never worked. The unit will not turn on every time i turn the key on. The touch screen is not very sensitive and it is impossible to see when there is in daylight. And the radio jumps in and out of HD (that may be the signal where i live). I got what I paid for.

Works Great! Good value!

January 18, 2012

I have always purchased Jensen products and I have always been very satisfied. The VM9324 works great! It has a few glitches every once and a while, but overall everything has been working fine. The only thing that was a little annoying was trying to get the Jensen cord to play video.

Not *BAD*, but not without problems.

May 12, 2011

Well, I spent a little over a month with the unit, and mostly enjoyed it, but I did have a number of qualms. The startup time is atrocious. It's between 30 to 60 seconds before the unit boots and starts playing anything, be it radio, CD, MP3, etc. While this is forgivable to an extent, it really does detract from the unit overall. ...it started locking up often enough that I started carrying a bent paperclip with me just to reset the unit. There was one day where I had to do this six or seven times (which was the day before I submitted the RMA). If you have a convertible or wear polarized sunglasses, do not purchase this unit. You will *NEVER* be able to read the screen with the top down or glasses on. This isn't so much an issue with the unit itself, so much as the type of LCD used. I don't detract much from it for that, honestly -- I wasn't expecting perfect readability in near-direct sunlight. The good? It's an attractive design that really does feel like a quality item. It switches between inputs fairly quickly, and has decent sound quality for what it is. ...though, I was passing it through a rather anemic factory amp, so I'm sure it actually sounds much better than it did for me. I could never get it to properly play a video file without skipping or going utterly batpoo insane. One half hour episode of an original Doctor Who in XVID caused the thing to freak out and have to be reset three times before it would play through the file; each time was a different spot, so it was not an encoding issue. Ah well. Maybe it has something against British Sci-Fi? Bottom line: Would I recommend this to someone? Honestly, no. For a hundred or so more, you can get a much more capable head without all of the nicks for being a pain. Like I said, it's not *BAD*, but it is slightly less than average. If I was given one for free, it'd go straight back in the car -- but as I did pay some decent cash for it, I returned it.

It's got some bugs.

February 28, 2011

I've had this for a couple days and it's got a couple bugs. If they can be worked out I think it'll be a good radio. Pros: The display is very nice and works well day or night. It has an entire settings menu (brightness, contrast, hue etc.) that I haven't even had to play with. It also has size zoom And aspect ratio settings for movie watching. Audio quality is pretty good. All functions that I tried seemed to work good, while they were working. Setup was easy once I got the navigation figured out. Cons: 2 things, really. I plugged in a thumb drive and could read the jpg's OK. The mp3's were all pulled out of their folders which isn't so bad, but I could get it to lock up for a while where it wouldn't let me change songs. Pulling the drive out or turning the unit off and on would unlock it. This next thing is a bigger problem. When the unit is off for a while (like a couple hours or less) and then turned on, I can't get any sound from the radio section. Everything else plays fine. I have to turn the unit off & on several times (or use the reset button) for the sound to return. I'm hoping there's a firmware update for this. I'm 99.9% sure this is a software issue because everything else works all the time and this works fine once it's working. Since Jensen doesn't list their firmware updates it'll take a while to get this sorted out.

love it

February 24, 2011

Ive been with my Jensen for only 1 week, but it works great, I just hope is as good as Pioneer, because its got far better looks, I do think Jensen, really put into it everything it had on this unit, and I do think is built to last. Its Heavy has a fan on back to cool off crystal clear reception. excellent so far.

Just bought this

February 9, 2011

Overall it's not a bad product, it actually made my speakers sound better, and the equalizer is pretty decent to, but like others have stated it takes quite a bit of time to boot, and if you are listening to the HD radio, and your HD isn't coming in clear it makes this rather annoying stuttering and echoing sound. The unit comes with a rotary volume control which is pretty much a must, because having an all touch no knob is a pain in the butt. The design is very nice, and the screen is crisp, bright, and responsive. I would recommend this product, because you can't get any better price for a DDIN head unit with already integrated HD radio.

I really like it but the usb port isn't in the best spot (right under the volume) but I don't have a problem with it. You can override the emergency brake. Good picture quality compared to my old alpine. Overall I'm happy with it and would recommend to anyone.

Jensen VM9324

December 29, 2010

I installed this myself, 2008 Nissan Frontier, in about 3 hours with the GPS system. Overall it was very easy to install and I had no major issues. The deck will use the factory brackets that are attached to the factory radio, which was nice. You will not need to use the adapter kit, just the wiring harness and antenna adapters. The GPS system has been used several times now and have had no problems, it finds it way everytime. The HD radio is awesome and comes in crystal clear. I have used every option this thing comes with but the bluetooth and have had no issues ever. The only nit pick I would have would be that the screen is a little hard to see with direct sunlight, but I believe you would have this with any screen. Overall I am very pleased with this unit and would recommend it to anyone.

Awsome radio.

October 5, 2010

I love this radio, it has amazing features however voice recognition is not accurate. It works when it wants to and I guess the only complaint I have is that the start up is kind of slow. Other than that it has amazing sound and features plus the screen is amazing I could actually see the screen during day time unlike older Jensen units.

dont waste your time or money

October 1, 2011

This radio is worthless. I installed it and the cd player worked for a day then broke. Anything i hooked up through the usb port in the front sounded like dog poop! The touch screen was garbage didn't work, oh yeah and the remote didn't work... could have been the battery but i didn't own it long enough to bother gettig a new battery. On the bright side Sonic Electronix did deliver it quick and didn't give me a hard time returning it. I will do bussiness with them again. Just going to buy a better name than Jensen.
