I'm trying to decide between the JVC KW-AV60BT or the Pioneer AVH-P2400BT. Seems my sticking points in this decision is the fact that the JVC unit has the usb port in the rear, but I've read reviews that the phone call sound quality through bluetooth is pretty bad. The Pioneer appears to have great phone call sound quality, but the usb port is in the front. I'm curious if anyone has tried the JVC unit (or any of the similar models) with a different microphone that would eliminate this issue.
Not that I know of - but I think it should work with a different microphone.
There was a firmware update for older JVC's that addressed BT phone issues - so if it was reviews of other JVC decks that gave you the bad BT quality impression, they might have been before the firmware update.
If you buy from Crutchfield, you can try it out and return it if it won't do what you want.
Hope This Helps!!!
Anyone else have suggestions?

Thanks for the reply Tiger. Do you have any sources for this firmware update? I've done a little googling and the only thing I could find about it so far was a review on Amazon. If I can find some more info like this to be assured that it fixes the problem then I will probably go with the JVC unit.
Not sure why they show it as KT-AV60BTJ on that page, but they did the same with my unit (it actually says KD-A815J on the box, although none of the websites (including JVC's) include the "J" at the end).
Also - if you buy from Crutchfield, you can update the firmware and return it if it still doesn't work.
I don't see any issue with using a different microphone with the JVC KW-AV60BT receiver. The microphone cable ends in a 3.5mm connection and a lot of microphones for home camcorders do as well. If you try a different microphone, I would like to know how it went...
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
