      Perfect upgrade

      After owning the Pioneer AVIC- X940BT for many years, it had grown tired of the poor user interface and no longer needed the GPS function. The criteria of the replacement was simple: intuitive user interface. While this was the main requirement, I also wanted DVD playback, rear view camera capability, steering wheel control, etc. After a month or so of research, I selected the Kenwood. The price at purchase($268 including tax) was well within budget. The interface is very user friendly. Settings are easy to find and the touch screen is flawless. The main screens are well organized and finding anything is easy. The audio control section is a audiofile's dream without being too complicated for the average user. The sound from the built in amplifier works well with the factory speakers in my car and the power is ample. Other features like subwoofer, crossover, sound stage, etc. are great additions and really bring the sound in the car to the next level. DVD playback is fairly quick and clear. The radio is clear and can receive on par with all other radios I have compared it to. The rear view comes up quickly and looks great. Bluetooth phone and audio work as expect:quick to connect, easy to make and receive calls, easy Podcast/music playback. I have yet to use any of the apps (iHeart radio, Pandora, etc.). Installation was also very easy including connecting to the steering wheel controls using my old Axxess ASWC-1 interface. I'm sure I will come across a few things that I my not like 100% but so far, so good.

      So Far So Good

      2006 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab LE w/o Rockford Fosgate package. I just needed Bluetooth, so pretty much any head unit I researched had that. Many I researched had issues with the connectivity and static feedback. So far I have not had any of those issues with Bluetooth. Some have said it slow to respond and that maybe, but no slower than using Android Assistant on my phone, so I guess I don't notice. The touchscreen responds everytime, but it is a bit slow. Pause and Plays seem to work just fine, but menu navigation is a little slow. Radio use, the metadata is typically not correct, so not sure what is up with that. I did update the firmware after about a week of use. The unit on day 3 started exhibiting a digital noise feedback on all connections, not just bluetooth. When no sound was being played it still exhibited it. I turned the unit totally off and back and it went away, only to come back louder and more consistent the following day. I did the firmware update and so far so good. Overall it meets my needs, I don't think it is an upgrade on the sound of the stock speakers that typically most aftermarket stereos will have, I actually feel it degrades it a bit. I may updated the speakers, but that starts taking me down the upgrade rabbit hole, and really just wanted bluetooth for handsfree calling and texting. I use Android Auto, so stereo is only for transmitting sound. I also went with this unit for a future upgrade to a backup camera. Cannot comment on video quality. I will say the old school resistive display is not very bright, so direct sunlight is going to wash it out pretty bad. I have a dark tint and windshield tint on my vehicle and it has helped a lot, but it is still washed out on max. Played with the black settings and it helped a bit more. When the unit switches from playing audio to ringing for an incoming call the decibels go up on the same volume setting, but then when the call is answered the decibel level is the same as the music level. Dunno. The last thing I ran into which has more to do with the Nissan layout is that unit is recessed quite a bit. Using the included trim bracket does not allow the dashboard to seat totally in place, but not using it leaves a gap on the top and bottom of the unit seeing the cavity of both above and below the stereo.So there's that. I am using the trim piece as the dash is still secured and the gap it leaves is not noticeable and allows me to run the mic wire to the dash above the steering wheel, with out worry of the wire being pinched when fully seated.

      It was okay at first. Amost a year in and it's garbage. First thing the sound quality from it was never anything better then average. the biggest thing that drew me in for this radio was the features. Which most are lacking at. The second thing the android apps for this are garbage if you want to use the maps on your phone...you can't you have to download there app which is again garbage and in the end doesn't work. Third after the most recent Android up date (pie Version 9.0.0) the whole radio we to sh#t. Things it used to be able to do with my phone are hard for it to achieve. I checked the kenwood website sure enough there was a update that I hadn't installed. So I went to download it and install it on the radio. And sure enough the problem is worse the. It was before the up date. The best part about this I thought this might be android screwing with everything tried my phone in a buddies car with a pioneer not a problem. Sound quality is amazing go back to my stereo and it's sh#t. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS STEREO!!! also for no reason at all the setero freezes up locking you out of everything. Then something clicks and suddenly the volume is all the way up and your now listening to static at full blast. Or you can do what I do now and shut the car off and open the door

      Terrific Double Din Replacement Car Stereo

      I chose this model to replace a factory JBL radio in a 2005 Avalon that I was using TWO different FM transmitters with (one for MP3 and one for Satellite radio). It has plenty of set buttons for AM/FM/XM Satellite, Bluetooth, and has high amp USB input/charging capabilities with a backup camera (not included). I did NOT get a GPS model as now, everyone's phone has that. This is a terrific unit and it exceeds my expectations. The backup camera has excellent light and daytime resolution and the display is very programmable with not only pre-sets, but ordering the main display (for those options you use most often). It has excellent reception even without a separate antenna for the Satellite radio. It is very easy to change bands or input device while driving and the mic has noise cancelling for making calls to minimize road noise while talking. The touch screen is sensitive enough that I have not had a single touch that I did not get the response I was expecting, whether it be changing stations or changing the input. The programmable graphic equalizer has some "presets" for specific types of music as well as talk radio and allows you to set your own frequencies and apply it to all inputs while playing music. I would highly recommend this unit if you are looking to stay under $300 and I believe it delivers the sound quality (of course the amp and speakers come into play here) of a unit twice its price. You will not be disappointed.

      Overall the unit is superb! I want to note that the only reason I didnt give it a fifth star is because of the remote not being supplied and for Kenwood not putting a wire schematic on the unit which was typically standard in the past. It is simply a way to get buyers into an expensive shop and pay more money to have a "professional" put it in. I still did it myself but would recommend to everyone that if you are not COMPLETELY comfortable with car wiring then do NOT attempt it. You could damage the unit, the car or yourself. The screen has a lot going on and could cause distractions while driving so the owner/driver really should use a remote to navigate the unit while in motion. I purchased one through BB online. Also the description only credits the usb as a phone charger but in reality IT is what gives the user the option of hearing any music regardless of the type of recording it is (mp3, lossless, etc.). Any type of a recording on a usb, or micro sd via a usb adapter can play through the attached usb cord. That is awesome and is also miles ahead of using an aux cord and much more dynamic than bluetooth in regards to sound quality. I have not used the dvd fuction yet but I do have a back up cam attached and the picture is great!! Not hd but for a screen this size standard is perfectly fine. It also has options (cord outlet on the back of the unit) to add a navigator as well. Overall, I am extremely pleased and would recommend it to everyone.

      Kenwood used to mean something and take pride in their quality; Apparently those days are no more. This stereo has been nothing short of problematic and frankly I wish I could swap it out and get my money back. The bluetooth is hit and miss on connectivity and frequently "lock up" where I have to pull over and reset the vehicle or hold down the Power and another button to preform a hard reset. The volume increases considerably when there is a call that connects and when the call concludes, the radio sound is notably louder than when you took the call. I've reached out to customer service at Kenwood and had no response other than the canned response via auto generated email. Either way, save your money for another brand and keep looking. The only reason I gave this two stars instead of one is that the sound is clear from the unit...when it works.

      I bought this radio for it's Bluetooth function, more than any other features. However, after the installation was completed, and I left Best Buy, I was unable to get the phone screen to work. I went thru the manual, removed my phone, from the Bluetooth service, - my phone works for Pandora, and, it will receive calls. I re-installed the phone, still no luck. I made a 2nd appt. with Best Buy, and they had no luck. The tech said that my phone is not compatible with the unit. Seems odd, that all other functions work, but the phone screen. My phone is only 9 months old, and it's an LG V10. According to the Kenwood site, it is not listed. For me, that was not even on the list of things to look for. the unit overall is not a bad unit. Screen response is a bit slow, about 2-3 seconds to switch.. When you 1st turn it on, it takes about 20 seconds to come to life. I have another appointment, to have it removed, and returned. Not sure where we go from here.

      I was replacing my original gmc radio( 07) with this bluetooth kenwood touchscreen radio. I installed it myself and works great. Love that it has spotify option to choose from as I don't have sirius xm. Just a note, the box says, "xm ready" but after installation, I found out I needed another component for the "xm" radio,(sirius xm module). I was not willing to pull radio out and install again. Thank god for spotify! so if you want xm, make sure and ask what component is needed. I wish the salesperson would have told me about this module, obviously did not know. Otherwise, the radio has many features and pretty user friendly once you play around with it . My car is a 2007, so I am happy to have bluetooth capability now! I would recommend this kenwood radio!
