Description

    Overview

    Smartphone Integration
    JVC multimedia receivers interface your smartphone with your car to enrich your driving experience. Enjoy your favourite apps and view content on a big screen, in comfort and safety.


    Key Features

    Apple CarPlay
    Apple CarPlay is a safer way to use your iPhone in the car. Simply talk to Siri or touch the receiver’s display and get directions from Apple Map, make phone calls, listen to voicemail, send and receive texts, and listen to music all in a way that allows you to stay focused on the road.

    Android Auto
    Bring Android convenience into your car. Just plug-in via USB and have easy access to everything from Google apps to Google Maps from the JVC receiver. Access Android Auto’s features by touch or voice command; make and receive phone calls, listen to your favorite music, and best of all, with less intrusion and interruption so you can drive safely.

    WebLink™ Compatible
    WebLink™ is easy-to-use and gives you in-dash control of select apps. The system needs three things to do its magic: a compatible JVC Multimedia Receiver, an iPhone or Android smartphone, and a compatible app that works with WebLink. You will be able to use your receiver to control these popular apps on your phone. The WebLink car connectivity solution offers the fastest and easiest way for drivers to elevate their in-vehicle, smartphone experience to the next level. WebLink is compatible with both iOS and Android devices.

    Sound Optimization
    From advanced technologies that enable playback of premium High-Resolution Audio sources, to the vast array of sound adjustment functions to fine-tune and customize the acoustics exactly the way you want — count on JVC to deliver the music to your ears.

    High-Resolution Audio Playback
    You can enjoy playback of 96kHz/24bit audio which contains about 3 times the musical information of music CDs (44.1kHz/16bit), or even 192kHz/24bit High-Resolution Audio files with their approx. 6.5 times data volume. With high sound quality approaching the original master recording itself, you will experience the presence and ambience of a tune the way CD simply cannot.

    K2 Technology for Enhanced Digital Sound Quality
    K2 Technology reproduces the original master sound by up-converting frequency range and bit rate. For example, K2 up-converts a CD data to 192kHz/32bit and recreates higher resolution sound.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely great unit Saw the review from the other person with one star??? Yeah-Nah!! I use this unit for CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth music streaming and calls using my iPhone X & Samsung S9 with no issues at all. Was torn between the Sony, Pioneer and this one. But the screen and icons on both the Pioneer and Sony looked really cheap, so glad I went with this one! Had a little trouble with my iPhone not transferring my contacts. Rang JVC customer service (the guy I spoke to was very friendly) helped me set up contacts transfer on the phone (If anyone needs to do this for Bluetooth on iPhone just go to Settings > Bluetooth >Tap the "i" next to the model number KW-M740BT" > Tap Sync Contacts)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Claimed features aren't there. In today's world integrating your mobile device with your car is almost essential. JVC certainly outdid themselves with the unusable way it interacts with Android devices. So unusable I returned it after 2 months, during which time JVC were rude and unhelpful. Maybe the Apple side might work, but why risk it if they can't get an open source device right. Buy a cheaper unit, or spend a couple of dollars on a more expensive. Either way you will be much happier.
