XUV 835R Bluetooth?

Hi all. We just said goodbye to our XUV 825i with full cab and roll down windows, and welcomed our new XUV 835R. Short story is we absolutely love it! The AC works even better than I had hoped, even in the Kansas summer heat. Very nice not to have dust and dirt blowing in because the windows have to be rolled down to beat the heat. I don抰 think I抳e ever had the fan on high-very impressive.

I ordered it loaded, but didn抰 order the factory radio; really didn抰 think I抎 want one since my two previous Gators didn抰 have one. Well, this Gator is so nice that music would be nice to have. The price for the factory radios are not inexpensive, and I抦 thinking I抎 be happy with a Bluetooth and speakers to listen to my own music or stream Pandora from my IPhone.

Anyone out there who has done this? Thanks!

GGB

Will do as soon as the cloud cover moves away. We抳e actually got rain here after having almost nothing since June.

By the way, has anyone seen seat covers for the 835r yet? So far, all I抳e seen is for the 835m and 835e models. I had Gilmore seat covers on my last Gators, and with all this rain of late, my dog Duke says he needs them to wipe his dirty paws on when we ride!

The ones for the M fit. Are you looking for a different color?

That sure looks like those M seat covers should work on the R. Everything I抎 seen only showed seat covers fitting the E and M, but not the R. No idea why. Mind letting me know where you found those?

By the way-the color is fine. I抦 sure my Bride would prefer some other color, but I can always ask for forgiveness!

They are the John Deere ones.
As you can see, they fit my 865r fine. They come in black, yellow, or camo.
The part number is LP68162
They are on this page...

I don’t have the 835. I have an 825i with deluxe cab, but I put the John Deere JHD3630BT radio and overhead console on mine.It’s blue tooth and has a place to plug a microphone so that you can talk on the phone hands free. (Pics of it on a thread I started titled My Gator 825i)

Only complaint is it kills the battery quick when listening to music via blue tooth and your machine is off. I’ve been left with a dead battery many times.

Also, because seat covers were mentioned on this thread. I’d like to know where I can get seat covers for my 825i bench seat.

Let me second the Gillmore’s recommendation. I had their seat covers on my last two 825’s with high back bucket seats and on our 825 with bench seat up at our farm. Great fit, and do a super job of protecting the original upholstery.

Unfortunately they don’t yet make them for our new 835 or 865. I’ll be ordering the ones fro JD instead.

I just installed the JD seat covers that Cattleboy referenced. A very nice fit and look to be built to last. Installation only took about 15 minutes including a light cleanup.

This is the part number I had originally found, but at that time JD only showed it fitting the X835/865E & M models. Thanks again to Cattleboy for steering me straight.

We just made an install for a client using a car radio and car speakers.
You can get pods for speakers and a holder for the stereo.

Should be a pretty simple install
We hung it in the glove box of the 855d
Another option would be under the dashboard.
Speakers can be installed behind the seats or from the roof.

It's a bit more involved but having a good stereo might increase value aswell

Looking at this for playlist or Pandora from my phone.

No "radio" though.

I have the JD premium audio in my 865R. Bluetooth works fine, although I prefer to stick a mini thumb drive into the USB port which has all the music I care about. SiriusXM, regular radio, and weather work fine. The downside is the JD (made by Jensen) stuff is double priced for what you get. The powered Subwoofer is OK but with the inherent low rumble of the 865R, you really want to lighten up on the bass anyways. The SiriusXM antenna is mounted on the right rear speaker bracket which puts it just under the plastic roof. Works OK. The mic is put in a horizontal slot on the driver side dash.
