Compared several models for features I wanted and this was a clear winner

Liked the different options available with this particular radio
Michael H on Jul 21, 2015
Wanted to finally update my 2006 Ford Five Hundred radio, and this had all the features I coveted: Bluetooth for hands free calling and audio streaming, HD Radio, USB input that also charges, Android Phone control, 2-Line Text Display, 3-Band Equalizer, and a Remote Control that will save some money on having to get extra install fee to keep steering wheel control, remote can handle that just fine!!!

Hello my name is Darryl and I purchased the JVC KW- HDR81BT and i will put it in a 2003 Jetta tdi with the Monsoon system do I need anything to make it work because of the stock amp?
Darryl R on Feb 1, 2016
Best Answer: Simply add the headunit to your cart, enter your vehicle information when prompted, and allow the accessories to be added along with the headunit. Said accessories is what is needed to properly install the headunit.
