Released January, 2009
The Pros:Remote is small enough for the keychain, has tactile buttons that are easy to manipulate while driving. Power output high enough to create loud volume output without an amp. Can customize the colors used to suit preferences and match the dashboard lights.
The Cons:Remote control seems overly-simplistic, doesn't have a lot of functions. Too many options hidden under menus, not enough one-push functions.
The JVC KD-A605 is an in-dash car-audio receiver that features a built-in MOSFET amplifier with a 200w max power output. The second of five JVC KD A/V head units, the JVC KD-A605 is an upgrade from the KD-A305 in that it features a Full-Speed USB 2.0 connection with 2-way control for iPod/iPhones.

Other than that, the JVC KD-A605 is practically a duplicate of its peer. For instance, the JVC KD-A605 also features a variable-color illumination display with 30 preset color choices, not to mention a CD player that supports traditional CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs, plus those outfitted with MP3 & WMA music files. In addition, the KD-A605 features a standard AM/FM player, but is in fact HD Radio ready, Satellite Radio Ready, and Bluetooth compatible. Plus, the KD-A305 sports a wireless remote, a 3-band iEQ, a detachable face, a 24-bit digital-to-analog converter, 1 preamp output, and a front auxiliary port that provides easy connection with digital audio players and other external devices. The JVC KD-A605 retails for a slightly more expensive $169.95 (versus $129.95) and comes with a 1 year limited warranty. Additional service plans are available for a fee.
