Product Highlights

Bluetooth® Wireless Technology

The Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP) allows automatic access to your phone book without a transfer. Manual phonebook transfer is also available for maximum 400 numbers. The unit allows two phones to be connected full time, with separate illumination colour and sound available for each phone. One-key switching will let users change between head unit and mobile phone during a hands-free call.

Voice recognition dialling, SMS (Short Message Service) receipt notification, and audio streaming and control (A2DP1.2, AVRCP1.3) are also available from your smartphone.

Dual USB Port

The dual USB ports capable of 1A current power supply for smartphone connection provide multiple options to suit your style. Two devices such as smartphones and music players can be connected at the same time, allowing users to use one while charging* the other. The included USB Bluetooth® adapter can be connected to either port.
* Compatibility depends on model.

Digital Signal Processor (DSP)

The KD-R90BT is equipped with JVC-original high-performance Digital Signal Processor (DSP) designed to create optimal sound onboard. The 5-Band Digital EQ allows fine adjustments, while My Sound EQ lets users customise sound by listening to test tones in five frequencies, each represented by a different instrument. Five EQ presets are also available for easy customisation, while users can professionally fine-tune the sound using 5-band Digital EQ. Digital Track Expander restores the high-frequency signals lost during MP3/WMA compression process, offering closer to original sound. The Time Alignment feature adjusts sound delay and brings the sound image to the centre of the listening position. For easy setup, 10 presets are available by car type. Loudness Control and High-Pass Filter/Low-Pass Filter also work to offer superior sound quality onboard.

Smart Remote App for Android*

JVC-original Smart Remote app allows display and control of key head unit features such as source, EQ, and track up/down on the Android phone screen using simple swipe finger gestures, via Bluetooth® connection. The app is compatible with most Android phones, and is available for free download from the Android Market.
* Compatibility depends on model.

Application Mode for iPod/iPhone (Auto Drive Router App)

Users can control iPhone apps including JVC-original ones such as Drive Data for taking pictures/video along the route, and Here I Am for SMS support and sending e-mail from the head unit’s phonebook by USB connection. The application is available for free download from the iTunes Store.

Drive Change Mode for BlackBerry®

Listen to music from either internal (built-in memory) or external (SD) sources on a compatible BlackBerry®, via USB connection.

Detachable Face Panel

The flip-down face panel can be detached and carried in the included case for safety when leaving the car.

Separated Variable-Colour Illumination

Two separate colours for the keys and display can be selected from over 30,000 x 30,000 colour combinations, providing a match for almost any car’s illumination. The brightness can also be controlled separately, with an auto-dimmer function.
