Equipped with Bluetooth, front and rear USB ports, customizable lighting, and an option for SiriusXM satellite radio, the JVC KW-R925BTS receiver is a music lovers dream. An in-dash dazzler Dave chose the JVC KW-R925BTS CD receiver because it offers a USB port and Bluetooth for hands-free calling and streaming music - a far cry from the cassette adapter he suffered with for years. One of the receiver's most noticeable features is its variable color settings for the display and buttons. They let the radio's display mesh with the Toyota's dash lighting (though Dave did have to admit that the kids loved the different colors and flashing lights). Dave also loves controlling the stereo from his phone and seeing artist, song, and album info on the big display. This let him easily discover and identify new music on Spotify .

If you happen to see it somewhere, dont bother contacting me. Dave began by getting the factory radio out Although I'd done a receiver installation before, it was great to have instructions specific to the Toyota at my side. While I was concerned about other aspects of this installation, I was fairly certain that removing the radio was going to be quick." Start Getting the factory stereo out was a piece of cake. I just pried o the trim piece using a Bojo panel tool. The panel removal revealed six bolts holding the radio in place, which I removed with a socket wrench. I pulled the radio out a bit, disconnected the wires, and bid the old stereo goodbye.
