About the JVC KD-R490

Simple and solid

JVC's KD-R490 CD receiver delivers strong sound, while it offers several ways to get your music going while you're on the road. First of all, you can plug your Android™ into the USB port on the front panel, and run your music with the JVC's controls. Second, you can choose from a sensitive AM/FM tuner, an auxiliary input, or a CD player. You can run the show using the simple controls on the detachable faceplate or with the included wireless remote control.

Play your music

Got a library of MP3, WMA, WAV, or FLAC music files? You can also use the front-panel USB port to plug in a thumb drive full of music. And if your tunes are stored on a portable device with a headphone output, like a portable high-res player, you can plug it into the front-panel auxiliary input. Finally, you can go old school by sliding a CD in or tuning in your favorite AM or FM station. 

Setting up your audio and display

A built-in 3-band parametric equalizer, fifteen EQ preset settings, and loudness controls let you zero in on just the right sound. JVC included one set of preamp outputs, so you can plug in a powered subwoofer to add some bass punch to your music. If you add a subwoofer, you can tweak the sub's sound using this receiver's low-pass filter and level controls. 

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

    1992 Mazda Protege

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Very easy secure install w/ clean cover plates. Nice, un-distorted even at high volume, sound. Remote works well from back seat. Bought a scratch-and-ding because went into an old small car, but I can't see the flaw. Drives four 5-1/4" speakers to full volume at half its full output so no need for amp and I don't need a sub-woofer.

    Pros: Very low distortion, probably from speakers not unit.

    Cons: Weak bass, but I'm fine with that.

    Have been using for two years now, easy enough to install. The sound is great. My wife uses the radio in two cities and complains that it's too hard to change stations as there is no band switch as in other units. She likes to have a band for each city. Also the display is hard to read in the desert sun, but that is true with all radios.

    Awesome product!!! Easy to install with the wiring harness, and when I had a question, Crutchfield's tech support was able to answer my question immediately. Radio sounds great (and loud!). Very happy with my purchase. Thanks Crutchfield for the fast shipping (ordered at 3 pm, shipped at 6 pm) and for the excellent customer service. Will definitely purchase from Crutchfield again.

    I love this unit!! It has way more features than my older JVC unit and the sound is completely off the charts!! I love the fact it has such a diverse equalization process built in, and the ergonomics of the unit is very functional and easy on the eyes.. One of the reasons I bought this unit is so I can easily add my android phone as an extension and charge it as well!! My hats off to you JVC for building such an elaborate unit for the price!! Crutchfield is the best place to buy a head unit from!! Absolutely no fuss, and the guy that helped me with my order was such a great person!! This is how car audio buying should be!!!!!

    Overall good value for this stereo! Crutchfield makes the process easier with the extra service they provide. I am happy with this item as it replaced the old factory head unit that had a defective LCD screen and CD player. All of it installed for less than 90 dollars is pretty awesome.

    Very nice radio for the price. Great sound, and lots of features. I really like the red lighting. I thought it had Bluetooth compatability, but it doesn't. That was my mistake!

    Pros: Nice, compact design Lots of features

    Cons: Installation documentation was not very helpful. Am I supposed to know the difference between DIN and ISO? I do this once every 10 years!!! Had to go to YouTube to find similar installations to review. Instructions pertaining to my car were not very helpful. Consider some images in your instructions.

    I got this to replace the factory radio/tape player in a 97 F150. Yes I said tape player. Radio picks up stations I have never heard of before. Does everything and more that I wanted for just an old truck to drive to the lumber store, hunting, or the range. Bonus to have ports to run my phone or music on a memory stick. Crutchfield made it super simple to install. Comes with simple instructions. Literally popped off trip, pull old out and disconnect, plug new in, put new in and put trim back on. Cant beat it for 80

    5 stars, merchandise as advertised, outstanding service when I screwed up by thinking that 1995 toyota corolla was exactly the same as 1995 geo prizm. I ordered the corolla part when it was actually a prizm. Result, got the wrong wiring harness, Crutchfield sent the correct one at no additional cost.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The radio is great. Aux and USB inputs in front for using and charging your phone (iPhone not compatible with this head unit). There is an EQ button front and center. Press it to find many preset EQ's so your music and system sounds it's best. The CD function buttons are a bit small and of to the right side which make them hard to press when trying to FF or RWD. It was super simple to wire into the harness I purchased here also. This is the best site BY FAR for finding all the aftermarket components you'll need! If you don't want to or aren't capable of doing the wiring, Crutchfield will, at an extra cost at checkout, pre-wire the radio to the harness for you.

    Pros: Ease of wiring Many preset EQ's Looks good Easy station preset operation  Enough power to send to stock speakers enabling them to sound better than OEM head unit does (in my case)

    Cons: Not iPhone compatable Small CD function buttons

    I was looking for a simple nice sounding receiver for my 71 VW bus, f/r/sub, this looked like it fit the bill. Little did I know it was a huge upgrade for my previous unit. the sound is quite impressive, easy to operate, lots of control, i.e. navigating the usb, eq. Your reviews are quite helpful and the price was shockingly low. If I had known this upgrade could make my crusin camper sound this good I would not have waited for the old unit to croak. Thanks People JJ

    Pros: simple, full featured, powerful

    For a straightforward stereo receiver this guy is hard to beat. It's one of the lower-end options I could find (I'm a cheapo) and it still does USB, Pandora, XM Radio, CDs, AUX cord, etc. If you're doing a full audio-system overhall you may want to look at something more powerful/versatile, but if you just need a good receiver to power your stock speakers you can't go wrong with this one. It's got more bells and whistles than I need, and without breaking the bank. Plus the instructions and form adapter that Crutchfield matched to my vehicle were a breeze to figure out. Happy customer, would definitely buy again.

    Android + Aux Integration

    Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0) Connectivity:  The JVC KD-R490's front-panel USB port lets you connect your AOA 2.0 compatible Android OS 4.1-7.1.2 smartphone for music playback. JVC does not guarantee operation with all Android devices, regardless of operating system. There are two Android AOA 2.0 modes to choose from based on what content you want to listen to and how you want to control it.

    • Audio Mode: The JVC KD-R490 supports Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0), which lets  you connect your Android  (OS 4.1-7.1.2) smartphone to the KD-R490's front-panel USB port and listen to stored music and music apps from your Android device through the JVC head unit. You'll be able to control basic playback functions such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track. Other advanced music navigation will still be done from your Android smartphone's touchscreen. In this mode, the head unit will not display song/artist information; only "Audio Mode" will show up on display. You'll continue to view song/artist information from the Android device's touchscreen. You'll also still be able to access other functions and applications from your Android smartphone's touchscreen, while listening to music through the head unit. If you make a call or answer a call from your smartphone while listening to music in this mode, the music will pause until you are finished with the call and then start back up again.
    • JVC Music Play App (Auto Mode): Downloading the JVC Music Play app onto your Android (OS 4.1-7.1.2) smartphone not only allows you to listen to stored music from your Android device through the JVC CD receiver connected via USB, but it also lets you browse your Android smartphone's music library from the head unit's front-panel controls. You can browse your store music library by Playlist, Artist, Song, Album, or Genre. The contents of a Playlist or Category can be searched alphabetically or numerically. You can also control Play/Pause and Previous/Next track from the head unit. In addition, the head unit will display song/artist information. You can exit the JVC Music Play app to access other functions and applications of your Android smartphone, while your stored music library is still playing through your head unit. If you make a call or answer a call from your smartphone while listening to music in this mode, the music will pause until you are finished with the call and then start back up again.
    Note: The head unit's USB connection provides 1A of current to power and charge your connected Android smartphone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position (if your Android device has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it).

    Front-Panel Auxiliary Input: A front-panel stereo minijack is provided to allow the connection of almost any portable audio source with a 3.5mm headphone output. Simply connect your portable digital music player to the unit's front-panel auxiliary input, and you can listen to the audio from the portable player through the speakers in your mobile audio system.

    Disc & USB Playback

    Disc Compatibility: The unit features a single disc player that will playback CD-Audio and finalized CD-R/CD-RW audio discs. The unit also supports playback of MP3 & WMA music files loaded onto CD-R/RW discs.

    • Off Insert/Eject: A CD disc can be inserted or ejected with the power off. When a disc is inserted with the power off, the unit will automatically power up and begin playback.
    • Auto Reload: If the ejected disc is not removed within 20 seconds, the disc is automatically inserted again into the loading slot to protect it from dust. The source will change to CD, and the disc will begin playback, even if you have another source selected at the time.
    Note: For proper disc playback you must install the unit within 30-degrees of horizontal.

    USB Mass Storage Devices: The JVC KD-R490 features a front-panel USB (type-A) port that is hidden behind a flip-out cover. The USB port enables connection of USB mass storage class (MSC) devices; like USB thumbdrives, USB card readers, or portable digital music players. You can insert a compatible USB MSC device into the head unit's USB port for playback, control, and song/artist display of a variety of music files.

    • Drive Change: The head unit's Drive Change mode lets you switch between multiple memory cards in a USB multi-card reader. When a mass storage class (MSC) compatible smartphone or portable digital audio player is connected to the head unit's USB input, the unit's Drive Change mode lets you select its internal memory or external memory (such as an SD card) for stored music playback.
    • USB Charging: USB devices that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the CD receiver's USB port (max. 1A), and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On.

    Note: Not compatible with USB hubs. This unit's USB port is not compatible with Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad.

    Compatible Music Files: The JVC KD-R490 supports the following types of music files recorded onto CD-R/RW discs or loaded onto a USB mass storage class device.

    Playback & Search Functions: The JVC KD-R490 offers a variety of playback and search functions to help you find and enjoy your music on disc and USB.

    • Track/Folder List: The Track/Folder List displays a list of music folders and tracks on an inserted CD or USB device, so you can easily access your music.
    • Repeat: Track Repeat (plays the current track repeatedly), Folder Repeat (plays all tracks of the current folder repeatedly), Off (cancels repeat function)
    • Random: Folder Random (plays all tracks of the current folder, then the tracks of the next folder in random), All Random (plays all tracks of the current disc at random), Off (cancels random function)
    • Resume: If you change the source, playback also stops (without ejecting the disc or USB device). Next time you select CD or USB for the playback source, the player will start from where it has been stopped previously.

    Audio & Tuner Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The JVC KD-R490 in-dash CD receiver utilizes a 24-bit (DAC (digital-to-analog converter) for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The JVC KD-R490 is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power output specs for the KD-R490 are as follows:

    • Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
    • Maximum Output Power: 50 watts x 4 channels (200 total watts)
    Amp Gain: When you are using the KD-R490 with factory speakers (or those rated to less than 50 watts peak), the Amplifier Gain Control can limit the amount of power being sent to those speakers. When the Amp Gain Control is set to "low," the volume control ranges from 0 (minimum) to 25 (maximum). When using speakers rated higher than 50 watts peak, you can set the Amp Gain Control to "high," and the volume control will range from 0 to 35.

    2.5V/2CH Preamp Output: The KD-R490 is equipped with two 2.5V preamp outputs (Rear/SW). You can set the Rear/SW preamp outputs for connecting a pair of full-range rear speakers (through an external amplifier) or for connecting a subwoofer (through an external amplifier). When set for rear speakers, the rear outputs operate with the unit's fader control. When set for subwoofer, the outputs are non-fading.

    Subwoofer Controls: When the unit's Rear/SW preamp output is set to Subwoofer, you can set the cutoff frequency of the low-pass filter at 55Hz, 85Hz, or 120Hz. You can also adjust the subwoofer phase between 180° (reverse) or 0° (normal). In addition, you can adjust the head unit's subwoofer level between -8 and +8 (separate from the main volume level).

    Subwoofer Speaker Connection: You can connect a subwoofer to this head unit without the need of a separate power amplifier. Simply connect a single subwoofer (4-8 ohm) directly to head unit's left rear speaker leads (the right rear speaker output will be muted). The rated power output for the subwoofer speaker channel remains 22 watts. Same subwoofer controls apply, except the, subwoofer level adjustment is from -6 to+3.

    Pro EQ: The KD-R490 is equipped with JVC's Pro EQ. The integrated equalizer offers 13 preset sound modes (Flat, Hard Rock, Jazz, Pop, Hip-Hop, R&B, Talk, Vocal Boost, Bass Boost, Classical, Dance, DRVN, & User ) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The DRVN EQ preset helps you hear your music over road noise by boosting certain frequencies ranges that becomes hard to hear due to road noise. The User mode allows you to manually adjust the head unit's 3-band parametric EQ (Frequency, Level, and Q-Factor).

    Pro EQ
    Frequency Level Q
    Bass 60, 80, 100, 200 Hz +/- 12 dB (-6 to +6) 1.0, 1.25, 1.5, 2.0
    Midrange 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.5 kHz +/- 12 dB (-6 to +6) 0.75, 1.0, 1.25
    Treble 10.0, 12.5, 15.0, 17.5 kHz +/- 12 dB (-6 to +6) Fixed

    Note: You can store EQ Pro bass, middle and treble tone settings for each source (Disc, Tuner, Aux, USB, and Android).

    Audio Enhancements: The JVC KD-R490 offers the following audio adjustments to enhance your music listening experience.

    • Digital Track Expander: The digital Track Expander automatically enhances compressed music files and restores the original richness of the recording.
    • Bass Boost: The unit's Bass Boost enhances low bass frequencies.
    • Loud (Loudness): This feature boosts low and high frequencies to produce a well-balanced sound at a low volume level.
    • Volume Adjust: The input level of each source (other than FM) is adjustable relative to the FM radio volume, so there isn't a significant volume difference when changing sources. Each source is individually adjustable from -15 to +6.

    Key Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.

    RDS AM/FM Tuner: The JVC KD-R490 features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, and preset tuning. You can store a total of 18 FM stations presets and 6 AM station presets. The radio allows you to set your AM/FM stations manually or automatically. You can also switch the tuner's IF filter to Wide or Auto to increase/decrease the sensitivity. If an analog FM stereo broadcast is hard to receive, you can manually switch the tuner to Mono operation.

    • US or European Tuning:  You can set the built-in AM/FM tuner between US standard and European tuning spacing.
    • RDS: The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible AM/FM stations.
    • Radio Timer: The head unit's Radio Timer features lets you tune into a preset station at a specific time regardless of the head unit's current source (you can activate the Radio Timer once, daily, or turn it completely off).

    Display & Remote Features

    Detachable Face: The JVC KD-R490 features a detachable face to deter theft. No face case is included with this unit. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired.

    VA (Vertical Alignment) LCD: Equipped with VA (Vertical Alignment) LCD panels that offer a broader angle of view and better visibility, the KD-R490's display provides English or Spanish text. Adjustable brightness and dimmer settings are available for the LCD and button illumination.

    • Brightness: The unit offers a daytime and nighttime brightness settings for the LCD and button illumination. You can adjust the brightness level of each manually from 0-31.
    • Dimmer: The unit's dimmer control can be set automatically or manually; select "Off" for daytime brightness setting, "On" for nighttime brightness setting, or "Auto" which switches between day and nighttime brightness setting automatically when you turn off/on the headlights (orange/white wire of harness must be connected to headlamp circuit). You can also set a specific time for the "Off" and "On" setting to be activated.

    Day & Time: The unit displays a 12-or 24-hour clock, as well as the day (Sun/Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri/Sat). The day & time can be selected to remain on, even if the head unit is switched off (as long as the vehicle's key is in the accessory or start position).

    Remote Control: The JVC KD-R490 comes with an IR remote control and offers compatibility with factory steering wheel controls (adapter sold separately).

    • Wireless Remote Control: The KD-R490 comes supplied with a wireless remote control (RM-RK52). The remote contains Power, Attenuator, Sound, Source, Tracking, and Volume functions. The remote operates off of a single CR2025 3V Lithium-cell battery (included).
    • SWC Input (requires optional adapter): The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input wire (blue/yellow) within the included wiring harness that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately).

    The horse may be out of the barn by this time. Once you've set up the profile describing your vehicle, the search results that follow should be valid for your car. Also, it may be worth contacting Crutchfield's customer service group. Good radio, though.
    [ Daniel  Mar 17, 2019 ]

    I do not know if the radio will fit your BMW, I installed this radio in a 1996 Ford pickup. The radio is great, very good clear sound, and I am very happy with the overall performance. Hope all goes well for you. Dennis
