Rounding up today’s CarPlay receiver announcements (at least for us in the UK), we have an announcement from JVC, with a new CarPlay receiver, the KW-M730BT.
JVC are introducing a number of receivers for 2017, two include CarPlay support, one of which is the KW-M730BT. Similar to the 820BT we reviewed here, the 730 will retail at an affordable $280. It will feature a 6.8-inch screen, with USB ports and 192kHz/24-bit FLAC-encoded playback.
I wouldn’t expect this budget unit to carry many features, but it is an entry-level solution for Kenwood/JVC group that will tick the box if it is just to get CarPlay into your vehicle.
The KW-M730BT is expected to release in Q1 2017.
