    Let your phone assist

    Android owners, you can mirror your phone's screen on the JVC display by plugging into the rear USB port and using JVC's free "Mirroring OA for JVC" app. This receiver's micro-HDMI input lets you mirror the screen from select phones by using a compatible HDMI adapter for your phone (sold separately) and JVC's KSU70 micro HDMI-to-HDMI cable.

    Simple touchscreen controls

    This receiver's 6.8" capacitive display shows all your info in crisp detail and lets you customize its home screen for when Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are not active. When you're using the JVC onscreen interface its built-in Gesture Control provides simple and quick control over volume, track forward, and track back with just a swipe of your finger.

    The KW-M785BW also sports a 13-band equalizer that allows you to set up separate tone curves for different audio sources. Combine that with the built-in digital time alignment processor, and you can put yourself right in the engineer's seat. Six ultra-clean preamp outputs give you flexibility in adding amplifiers to your system when you're ready to pump up the sound.

    Wireless convenience with Bluetooth

    Bluetooth enables wireless streaming for music and hands-free phone calls. You can quickly switch between two paired phones — handy for vehicles with more than one driver. Many portable audio players also include Bluetooth, so you can stream your personal music collections while you're on the road. When it comes to streaming audio, JVC's Streaming DJ feature lets you pair five phones so everybody can add their favorite songs to the road trip playlist.

    Gateway to your music

    In addition to tuning in your favorite AM/FM radio stations, you can also add a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner (SiriusXM subscription required) to get non-stop music, talk, and news stations that will stay with you as you cross state lines.

    You can plug your Android™ phone or iPhone® into the rear-panel USB port to engage Android Auto or Apple CarPlay and charge your phone. This port can also handle music stored on a thumb drive, including high-resolution FLAC and WAV music files.

    Helpful video options

    The KW-M785BW also provides handy video options like two camera inputs, as well as a rear A/V input that can be switched to create a third camera input. If you've got an audio/video piece to add to the system, like a video game console for the backseat crew, you can plug it into this receiver's rear mini-jack or micro-HDMI inputs. To get a video feed to that crew, you can connect an additional monitor to this receiver's video output.

    iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory features

    Combined with an iDatalink Maestro RR or RR2 interface (sold separately), the KW-M785BW includes intuitive vehicle integration that lets you keep factory features that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. Once you've identified your vehicle, you'll see the iDatalink module offered on the way to the Shopping Cart if it's compatible.
