Steps-By-Steps Guide

Step 1: Activate Bluetooth on Your iPhone

First, enable Bluetooth on your iPhone. Swipe up from the bottom or down from the top-right corner of your screen to access the control center. Tap the Bluetooth icon to turn it on.

Step 2: Set Your JVC Radio to Pairing Mode

On your JVC radio, select either “BT-PHONE” or “BT-AUDIO” to initiate the Bluetooth pairing mode. This step prepares the radio to establish a new Bluetooth connection.

Step 3: Choose “NEW DEVICE” on Your JVC Radio

Next, select “NEW DEVICE” on your radio. This is important for establishing a connection with a device that hasn’t been paired with the radio before.

Step 4: Enter the PIN Code

Your JVC radio will prompt you to enter a PIN code. The default is usually "0000", but you can create a custom number. Remember this PIN for the next step on your iPhone.

Step 5: Connect Using Your iPhone

On your iPhone, look for the JVC radio in the list of available Bluetooth devices and select it. When prompted, enter the same PIN code you used on the radio. You should see a “CONNECTED” message on the radio’s display, indicating a successful connection.

Step 6: Automatic Reconnection (Optional)

For convenience, you can set your JVC radio to automatically connect to your iPhone. This feature, “AUTO CNNCT,” saves time by skipping manual setup in the future.

Troubleshooting Tips

  • Make sure your iPhone's Bluetooth is visible to all devices.
  • If there are issues, try deleting the existing connection from your radio and reconnecting as a new device.
