Your smartphone companion

Part of the joy of streaming music on your smartphone is that it's easy. And JVC doesn't mess with a good thing — their KD-X360BTS digital media receiver keeps things simple in your car. Built-in Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, and an aux input make playing music from your phone quick and satisfying. And if streaming isn't your thing, you can add a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner (sold separately) and expand your entertainment horizons even more.

Pair two phones at once

No matter what kind of phone you're using, Bluetooth pairing is automatic every time you hop in the car. You can also pair two phones at once — if you share a vehicle, getting connected is less of a hassle than adjusting the rear-view or getting the driver seat like you like it.

Awesome for Android™ and Apple®

Android® users can control Pandora®, Spotify®, and iHeartRadio® right from the stereo through the Bluetooth connection — no wires needed. If you'd like to do the same with an iPhone, no problem — you'll need to connect via USB. JVC's remote control app lets you use your compatible Android or iPhone touchscreen to control the action on your receiver using finger swipes and gestures.

With a wired connection, you'll be able to take advantage of the USB port's powerful 1.5-amp charging capability.

Add on satellite radio

When AM/FM ain't enough, add a SiriusXM® tuner (sold separately) to your KD-X360BTS and start enjoying the wide variety of music, sports, news, and entertainment available. You can explore an incredible selection of music with your subscription, and the best part is you can drive state to state to state without losing your favorite channels.

Prioritize audio quality

The KD-X360BTS plays MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, and even FLAC files, and you can make the most of them with a wide array of sound-shaping tools, including time alignment to focus the sound at your seat, Sound Lift to raise your music from depths of your doors, and a 13-band graphic equalizer. Plus, JVC's proprietary K2 sound enhancement technology brings out the best in each song.

Always room to expand

JVC prepares you for improvement by arming the KD-X360BTS with three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs. When you're ready, you'll be able to easily add amps and a sub to your system.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The JVC KD-X360BTS is equipped with built-in Bluetooth 3.0, allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP 1.6 (Hands Free Profile) & PBAB 1.0 (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.2 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) & AVRCP 1.5 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the JVC KD-X360BTS. Check here for the latest Bluetooth compatibility information.

    SSP & USB Pairing: With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the JVC KD-X360BTS without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. You can even pair your Apple iPhone (iOS 5+) by simply connecting it to the JVC head unit via USB and following a single prompt on the head unit's display.

    • Dual Phone Connection: Thanks to the Dual Phone Connection feature, two Bluetooth-enabled phones can remain connected to the JVC receiver. This means you can an answer an incoming call from either phone from the head unit. Also, both of your phone's contact lists are downloaded to the receiver. To make a call from one of the phones using the JVC receiver, you simply have to select Phone 1 or Phone 2 on the head unit's front-panel.
    • Streaming DJ: The new Streaming DJ feature allows five Bluetooth audio source devices to be connected to the JVC receiver at one time, so you can switch between Bluetooth playback sources a lot easier and quicker. While "BT Audio" source is selected on the head unit, you can simply press the music playback button on your connected Bluetooth source devices to switch between devices and begin music playback. However, you cannot stream audio from two different Bluetooth audio source devices at the same time or combine music libraries or playlists from two different connected devices.
    Note: You can pair up to five Bluetooth-enabled devices to the JVC head unit. When an already paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units.

    Bluetooth Hands-Free Communication (w/ External Mic): The head unit supports Bluetooth hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. And thanks to the latest Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.6) with wideband speech capability, the KD-X360BTS provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls. The controls of the KD-X360BTS can be used to dial a number, answer an in-coming call, or end a call. The unit also includes an external microphone (with mounting bracket) featuring adjustable gain, so you can carry on your side of the conversation while listening to the caller through your vehicles speakers. During a conversation, you can switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode.

    • Answering A Call: When a call comes in, a ring-tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker and the caller's name or phone number will be displayed. You can answer the call from the head unit's front-panel controls, or setup the head unit to automatically answer the incoming call immediately or after 1-30 seconds. The KD-X360BTS also supports the Call Waiting function, so you can answer another incoming call while suspending the current call you are on. Your compatible cell-phone must also support this feature.
    • Dialing A Number: Using the KD-X360BTS, you can dial a phone number in one of the following ways:
      • Enter Phone #: Allows you to directly dial a phone number up to 32 digits from the head unit's front-panel rotary dial.
      • Preset Dialing: You can store up to 6 contacts in the memory of this unit for speed dialing.
      • Phone Book: You can download phone book data from your mobile phone to the digital media receiver. You can then dial a contact within the phonebook from the head unit's front-panel controls. Your phonebook can be searched alphabetically or numerically.
      • Call History: The Call History is a list of calls that have originated from and were received by this unit that you can dial. You can select Outgoing, Incoming, or Missed calls.
      • Voice Dialing: If your mobile phone supports voice recognition, then you can dial out by voice command. Simply speak into the included microphone once you have activated the voice dialing function from the head unit's front-panel.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The JVC KD-X360BTS supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or audio player, plus song/artist information display. You are able to stream your stored music library on your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, as well as music apps downloaded on your smartphone to the JVC KD-X360BTS for playback.

    • SBC + AAC Codecs: In addition to support for the standard SBC Bluetooth audio codec, the KD-X360BTS offers support of AAC. By supporting AAC, the KD-X360BTS offers better audio performance of the music streamed from your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
    • Advanced Music Browsing: In addition to basic playback functions (Play/Pause, FF/RW, Skip, Random/Repeat), the KD-X360BTS lets you browse your stored music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, etc. Advanced music browsing is supported by Android 4.0+ smartphones and Apple iPhones 5.0+ (specific advanced functions vary by phone).
    • Song/Artist Information: The head unit will also display your stored music and music app's song information; such as Artist name and Song/Album title (not compatible with all apps).
    Note: When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.

    Siri Eyes Free Control: When paired to an iPhone with Siri via Bluetooth, the JVC KD-X360BTS has the ability to access Siri through its front-panel control and external microphone. Simply press the "phone command" button on the KD-X360BTS to engage Siri and use the included microphone to communicate with Siri. Siri's voice will heard through your vehicle's speakers. All Siri functions including hands-free calling, music search, setting reminders, text-messaging, audible navigation, and more can be done through the head unit and its microphone. You can even ask Siri to get directions to a destination and the turn-by-turn instructions will heard through your vehicle's speakers, while the on-screen map still displays on your iPhone with Bluetooth; the head unit's audio is attenuated while Siri provides audible directions.

    Note: The head unit will only display hands-free calling and Bluetooth audio information (all other functions of Siri are only audible through the KD-X360BTS; visual data will still need to be viewed from your iPhone device).

    Low Battery Information: When the battery of a connected Bluetooth device runs low, a beep sound is heard and "LOW BATTERY" appears on the receiver's display.

    Android & iPhone Integration

    Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0) Connectivity: The JVC KD-X360BTS's front-panel USB port lets you connect your AOA 2.0 compatible Android (OS 4.1-7.1.2) smartphone for music playback.

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: 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 digital media 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. 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.

The KD-X360BTS supports audio playback, music navigation, information display, and charging of your compatible Apple device. If you have a newer iPod/iPhone with the Lightning-connector, you can use JVC's Lightning connector-to-USB cable (105KSU62, sold separately) or the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device to connect your iPod/iPhone to the KD-X360BTS. If you have an older iPod/iPhone with a 30-pin dock connector, you can will need to use the dock connector-to-USB cable that comes with your Apple device or a "Made For iPod/iPhone" 30-pin-to-USB cable (sold separately) to connect your iPod/iPhone to the KD-X360BTS.

In addition, you'll be able to control basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track) from stored music and select music apps streamed to your Apple iPod/iPhone. You can also choose to control your Apple device from its own touchscreen, instead of the head unit.
    • Song/Artist Info: The KD-X360BTS will display your iPod/iPhone's music file information such as Track number, Elapsed playing time, Artist name, Song title, and Album title.
    Note: See chart below for compatible Apple iPod, iPhone, & iPad models.

    USB Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1.5A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone or Android smartphone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position (if your iPod/iPhone or Android smartphone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it).

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The JVC KD-X360BTS in-dash digital media receiver utilizes a 24-bit (DAC (digital-to-analog converter) for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The JVC KD-X360BTS 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-X360BTS are as follows:

    Crutchfield supplied the factory wiring harness connector. Just had to solder and heat shrink them together. You could use crimps or just twist tight and use electrical tape. Crutchfiel also supplies a service to do it for you for a minimal fee. I have had no issues with battery drain and it works flawless!

    [ John  Jun 29, 2019 ]
    1 answer
    A
    As long as your CD players has a preamp output you should be able to connect it to the AUX input on the JVC with an RCA to 3.5mm adapter like this: https://www.crutchfield.com/I-rET1c290/p_1426RCA35A/Scosche-Mini-to-RCA-Cable.html

    Q
    Can this radio be used to retain steering wheel controls with the ASWC-1? if so can you use the 3.5 mm mic port on the back?
    [ Riley  May 17, 2019 ]
    2 answers
    A
    Short answer is yes, it should. The Mic port is separate. The Mic is used to talk and answer the phone as well as an option to automatically dial in the best sound for listening depending on placement. Your steering wheel controls connect into the harness.
    [ Mark  Sep 24, 2019 ]
    A
    The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

    If you purchased the product from Crutchfield, feel free to contact our Tech Support team. They can walk you through the settings on the product and see if there may be a fix. Our toll-free Tech Support number is printed on your invoice, and is also available under the "My Orders" tab in the "My Account" section of our website. If you did not purchase the unit from Crutchfield, then you may want to contact the manufacturer.
    [ Krissy  Mar 18, 2019 ]  Staff
    A
    I haven't found where you can adjust the call volume separate from the normal music volume. It seems the radio uses the phone's volume to control the call volume and Bluetooth functions. So if your phone is set at max volume then when you use the functions from the phone like playing music off your phone or getting a call you will have to adjust the volume of the radio individually then back it off after turning off the phone function. You can lower or increase the phone's volume then it is ok on the radio's volume.
