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.

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.
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.
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.

50 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.
20 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 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.
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.
5 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.
iEQ - 7-Band Parametric
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.
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.


Playback Features

AM/FM Tuner
Most in-dash CD players have AM/FM playback allowing you listen to your favorite local radio stations.
FM Presets
The number of FM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
AM Presets
The number of AM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
Radio Data System (RDS)
Receivers with Radio Data System (RDS) tuners can receive digital broadcast information about the FM radio station including program name, time and station identification. RDS enables your receiver to display text messages that many FM stations include on a sub-carrier signal within their normal broadcast signal. Some RDS tuners can even break in with traffic alerts or emergency broadcasts when you're listening to a CD.
CD-R/RW Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play finalized CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs.
MP3 Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with MP3 files. To burn a MP3 encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.
WMA Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with WMA files. To burn a WMA encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.
DVD / Video Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver will play DVD (or other listed) video disc formats. Unless otherwise noted, the unit is not guaranteed to play recorded DVDs.
DVD Region Number
This is the region number that the DVD receiver is compatible with. Almost any device that has the ability to play a DVD disk has a region number. DVD region codes restrict playback of movies that come from geographical locations outside of your residing place.
Dual Zone
Dual zone means the stereo is capable of playing multiple audio or video sources between two separate locations.

Please refer to the item description for more details on how dual zone works specifically to the unit you are viewing.

Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.

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.
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.

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.

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

Monitor Screen Features

If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
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

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.

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.

Display Adjustment
This refers to the many ways that a units display can be adjusted.
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.
Device Mirroring
This is the ability to "mirror" a device's screen (i.e SmartPhone or Tablet) onto the headunit's display. Please check with the manufacture's website for updated information regarding compatibility and cables required for proper performance.

Boaz, AL

decent value but wouldnt buy it again

April 25, 2011

Ive had this radio for about 2 years now. I would say its a good value, but I do have a few complaints about it. First is the messages that pop up at start up. I understand the reason for the warning message, but now I also have an annoying message after it telling me that my map is out of date. So no only do I have to wait and ok the warning message but also a map reminder. So far I've found now way around it other than buying a new map that I have no use for since the updates are in places I never travel. Also about the gps: sometimes there is an extended amount of time after start up until it finds a gps signal. The antenna is on the roof so this shouldn't be a problem, and I don't know how many times I have made wrong turns because the gps on this unit is always ~ 500- 1000 feet off no matter how fast I am travelling. The display is always behind where I'm really at. I have now actually resorted to using a portable garmin nuvi instead of the navigation on this radio. Another thing that I think decreases the value is the fact that if you want bluetooth, hd radio, xm, or reverse camera is that they all have to be added and cost atleast $100 each. I do like the looks of it though, I have it mounted to where that it sits flush with my dash. The ipod control, along with usb drive and sd card navigation is also painfully slow at times. If I had it to do over again I would probably look for something else, but since I already have it, overall I'm happy with it.

Awesome Deck; Awesome Value

February 10, 2010

I just bought this deck refurbished and installed it myself 4 days ago. I was a professional installer and have been an electrician for over 20 years, so the install was fairly easy for me in my 2006 Ford F-250 Super-Duty. The install kit and harness SE supplied made the install a breeze. I have not installed a backup cam or the OEM steering-wheel remote that I will add later, so I can't comment on those items. I have always had pretty high-end systems in my vehicles, with multiple amps, crossovers and separate speakers and always installed by me.
This is my first navigation deck, as well as my first AV deck and my first double Din deck. I love it!
I searched all over the net and read every review on the GPS decks I was interested in and finally settled on this one for several reasons:
1. FAST navigation
2. Detachable face
3. Lane guidance
4. Price
5. Remote is included
6. 7 band EQ
7. Speed limit posting and warnings
8 Screen size
9. Proximity sensor
10. 2 year warranty for $95 more - Square Trade
11. OEM Steering wheel remote capable
12. USB
13. 12 million POI's
14. Nice-sounding voice
15. etc,etc,etc

The good: gps is awesome; very fast, recalculates almost instantly.
Proximity sensor is nice - keeps the display uncluttered. Detachable faceplate is great for someone like me who go's out quad and dirtbike riding, where your vehicle is left in the middle of nowhere and an alarm would be useless. I loaded a 16 Gb USB flash drive with a ton of songs and they are all accessible - I routed the cable into the glove box and leave the flash drive there. I mounted the GPS antenna inside the dash with velcro to the top of an A/C duct and it works great - never loses signal and shows at least 9 of 12 satellites acquired every time I looked. DVD looks great and screen adjustments work well. POI's have been great so far. Screen size is awesome - I debated whether to get a motorized faceplate as this can be a reliability issue, but the screen size is worth the risk (at least with the extended warranty). Deck seems to power my factory speakers quite well and the 7 band EQ allows you to match the sound to your liking. I didn't want a deck that uses cd maps for navigation - it's great to listen to what you want even when navigating - the voice just chimes in. I may eventually add amplification and a sub, but for now I don't want to get too drastic on modifications to my new truck, so the ability to remove the AV connector from the rear of the deck is nice to avoid the extra clutter behind the unit. There are many other features I like about this unit.

The bad:
Due to the removable face, the unit protrudes out about 3/4" - but it doesn't really bother me - just doesn't look "stock". The USB takes about 30 seconds initially to read the drive, then it works pretty good. When using the USB with Flash drive, folders are a bit of a mess, I will try to change my organization method on the drive - I think it will be fine, but putting your music into a folder with group's name and then into another folder for the album doesn't seem to work very well for viewing the tracks, playback is okay, though. The touchscreen is finicky - especially at the far edges of the screen - I sometimes have to press many times to make the selection. Speed limits are only posted on the highway. Navtec does not have an updated map yet and charges quite a bit for it when they do, I understand - although even here in Las Vegas, with the OUTRAGEOUS amount of construction we usually have, I haven't seen any outdated data.

All in all, I love this unit! I was able to buy a truck that was $15K less than the newer ones with factory GPS, by planning to install my own GPS Deck. I made the right decision. This deck totally rocks. And so does Sonic Electronix - received it in a day and a half with free shipping! I would buy this same deck again in a heartbeat.

great nav radio!!!

October 9, 2010

User friendly everything. Plays DVD's, CD's, and radio while the Nav is on. They said it would not fit the Camaro, I put it in anyway. Good upgrade over old stocker, can not get lost now. Tiltable face, no sun glare, removable face need sub, amp and speakers.

DOA at first, but once revived, a great device

I ordered this unit to consolidate the gps and audio system into a combined unit. I had a previous JVC head unit, along with the add-on modules for bluetooth and XM, so this was a no brainer. Which is exactly how the unit arrived- with no brain. The Navigation system had me perpetually located at the White House, and while I was flattered, it made for some awkward trip planning. After nearly two months wait, returning it to the JVC factory authorized center, which had to wait on parts that were shipped from, I finally got the head unit back. It works as described, even better. No complaints, and I have bluetooth connectivity, xm connectivity, ipod, USB flash drive, and SD card connectivity. Highly recommended, once it works.

Love It!

I would recommend this unit to anyone who wants it all in one nice package. The nav works greats, the interface is very user friendly. I put this in an 01 mustang with a mach 460 system and it sounds , fits and looks perfect. The best part is the detachable faceplate which is great since my car is a convertible. Also, the parking brake bypass on this unit is simple compared to others. This is the best bang your buck.

Decent for the price

September 30, 2010

Loving my new system, looks great in my dash. The maps are decent but doesn't have lane guidance for my home city, Milwaukee. Overall it works great and drives my system well but it can be a bit slow to respond sometimes. Overall, a great value.

Outstanding value

January 21, 2010

Outstanding GPS always has a hot lock on starting . The directions are clear and accurate . This is one of the few that supports divx video on the usb flash card as well. Stellar usb ipod support for my gen 3 ipod nano out of the box. I did not need anything but the standard ipod cable to listen and fully control my ipod . Clear and large screen with plenty of customization. World class JVC support answered my questions and even called back about a technical question they needed to research. Sales person Brandon made this a very pleasurable experience and was very knowledgeable with the product. Called me back several times about a backup camera to help me make the best choice. Near unlimited expansion with j bus addons. I purchased the refurbished unit.

Good Buy!

May 16, 2010

Quality unit, have in both vehicles. Easy to use, I also like mapping is internal so you can use cd drive for DVD or cd at same time. Interfaces work well for Bluetooth and sirius radio. POI bit limited for example no such thing as Home Depot as well no way to shut of reminder screen for new map available requiring two key presses on every start up.

I ordered this unit for several reasons, high preamp out voltage, good looks, and removable screen. This deck is great. Not a single complaint with it, and GPS navigation works terrific.
