Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Car Aerial Hello, I am Terry. And I have recently purchased a Kia Rio car which has a JVC CD receiver KW-S601 fitted. When the ignition is on or the key is in the accessory position, and I set the radio to the settings to what I like. The unit works fine and remembers the settings fine, no problem, the problem is when I switch the ignition of and lock the car up over night. The unit resets it self back to default settings, all expect from the radio presets on the radio, it is so frustrating to get in the car and when I turned on the car I end up with a radio that I have never heard off. The same thing happens when I play a CD instead of playing from the last track it goes back to track one. I am due to take the car back to the dealer on 22/05/09 so that they can rectify the problem. Could you also advise me on how the following unit is mounted and would the current roof Ariel will work with the unit. KT-DB1000 or where to get instruction/advice before I go mad and purchase the unit. I leave in the UK. Please do contact me if you need any further information. Thank your time in this matter. Apologies for posting in the wrong area. Regards, Terry Macavoy

My jvc kw-avx740 keeps shutting off with the slightest shock

check the connector blok on the back of your radio. sometimes on the double din radio's this connector doesnt fit snug into the back of your radio. check the clip portion and ensure that when you stick the blok in it clips in place.

You can purchase an inline booster which fits in between the aerial lead and the back of the unit with a Blue wire that wires either to the 'Peak on' - (AMP on switch wire) or the ignition live wire (normally Yellow wire)
These boost the singal on all frequencies. Usual cost around $10 (£8 if UK)
Available from all car audio spcialists or Maplin if UK

JVC KW-NT1 GPS not working in UK

Have you tried re-flashing the unit with the latest EU firmware update available from the JVC website? Should overide the current firmware then allow you to use UK maps. If it doesn't work you can always reflash it with the USA update.
