JVC unveils new line of AV multimedia receivers for vehicles at CES

JVC has unveiled a new line of AV receivers that handle multimedia for vehicles at CES. The new line has four cool products that allow drivers to enjoy all sorts of content in the vehicle on the road. JVC also partnered with MotionX-GPS Drive to integrate its tech into the high-end double-DIN receivers. The tech lets the iPhone be integrated for use as a navigation device with control over GPS and song playback.

The line includes the KW-AVX840 with a 7-inch motorized LCD that is touch capable. It has Bluetooth inside, a USB port for iPod and iPhone control, playback directly from iPod, and is ready for satellite radio. It also has a 7-band EQ and 50W x 4 channel. The stereo will ship in March for $649.95. The KW-ADV794 has a detachable 6.1-inch screen. It has Bluetooth, a rear USB port, HD and satellite radio compatibility, 5V pre-outs, and can play MP3 and other digital file formats. It has 50X x 4 channels and will ship in February for $579.95. A lesser version called the AVX-740 with a shorter 1-year warranty and three 4V outputs is $549.95.

The starter receiver in the line is the KW-AVX640. This receiver is Bluetooth ready and when fitted with the optional Bluetooth radio it can support voice dialing and other mobile phone features. The unit will ship in February for $499.99. A single-din AVX77 unit is also available with a thin and long screen taking up the entire front of the system.
