Impressive in design and functionality, the FH-X820BS double-DIN CD receiver is for consumers who have more real estate in their dash and want a full-featured car stereo.
HANDS-FREE CALLING AND AUDIO STREAMING
From hands-free calling, wireless audio streaming with artist, album, and song search, simple pairing, and voice recognition, Bluetooth® wireless technology has made life in the vehicle much more convenient. The FH-X820BS with Bluetooth also includes better call quality reception using the new Wideband Speech Handsfree Profile 1.6. Nearly doubling the bandwidth of the frequency helps bring call quality similar to FM reception.
The FH-X820BS features Dual Bluetooth and Guest Mode. Dual Bluetooth allows two phones to automatically connect when in the vehicle to easily make and receive calls and stream music from both phones. Guest Mode allows a user to add and replace a third mobile device instantly to the receiver. Guest Mode is a great feature for a family vehicle with multiple drivers or a driver with multiple devices because it allows users to pair and delete devices easily without a lengthy registration or deletion process.
Other features include the ability to browse music libraries on smartphones wirelessly. In addition, iPhone Bluetooth pairing allows the user to connect an iPhone via an appropriate USB cable to pair with the FH-X820BS; it's that simple. This feature is great where there are multiple devices active and you are trying to search for and connect to a certain device.
