All you have to do is connect your iPhone with one of the USB 2.0 connections (located at the front and rear of the unit) and you can access this application, as well as your iPhone's music collection. When you are playing music over the speakers (which attach to this receiver's MOS-FET amplifier via four fifty watt speaker outs), you are able to control the basic audio settings with the 3-band iEQ (which adjusts general bass, mid and treble frequencies). To control settings and playback, the JVC KD-R820BT car CD receiver comes with a wireless keychain remote.
