      Not good for CarPlay and Navigation

      It's hard for me to believe that the other reviewers missed this, but after trying three units I'm quite sure they did. If you use Apple CarPlay with this unit, it pegs the navigation volume at really high. You cannot adjust it via the head unit and you cannot adjust it via the iPhone. It's loud enough that you can't talk over it and is quite shocking unless it comes on when you're already listening to loud music. The seller told me we could change the volume only when the prompts are on. True... for Pioneer, not true for Kenwood. Two conversations with Kenwood is that it can be controlled by the master volume and iPhone only, but unfortunately both people I spoke with don't even have an iPhone, and sadly this is not true. It ignores volume settings for navigation and maps and ignores the master volume unless it's at 0. All three told me different ways to change the volume (none the same) and all three could not actually tell me where to do so on the unit or the phone. Basically, it's a problem that's not acknowledged, so chances it ever gets fixed is nill. It probably works great for Android, the music is good, but if you plan to use CarPlay and Navigation look elsewhere. I welcome comments to tell me how to do it, but only if you have. I've already heard that from people who don't know.

      not as good as pioneer 4100NEX

      Purchased and had geeksquad installed around xmas of 2017 ($400 for unit without install) Bluetooth & user interface not as responsive as the 1 yr older pioneer 4100nex unit in my other car. I have samsung GS7 & sometimes when I get back into car it forgets my bluethooth connection, what a hassle to re-link manually again. 2 things that it is better than the pioneer is that the initial warning screen goes away automatically after 10 secs which on the pioneer you have to click "ok". This unit has a dedicated button to access rear cam. Album art displays full screen on pioneer, only a small corner on kenwood. Pioneer has animated background kenwood does not. Something to consider. My 2010 toyota FJ's does not have as good as volume with the oem sub-woofer after installing this kenwood in it. You have to turn the volume way up to hear the sub. I've check latest firmware as of jan 2018, no new firmware to fix these bugs I wanted to point out Caleb(Geeksquad) technician was awesome in working with me after to troubleshoot issues with cam, phone, settings, etc... Bestbuy is lucky to have him.

      To be honest, I've only had this receiver installed for one day but I have had plenty of time to "play" with it. So far I have only one negative thing to say: the people who mentioned the glare were right. That is the only reason I didn't give this five stars. I can live with that though, I really like all of the features of this receiver to include the gauge menu, adjusting the parking lines, and the Apple Car Play interaction. The list could go on. If you don't care about being able to play CDs/DVDs or having built in navigation, I would say this is a pretty solid choice.

      The receiver is great for Sirius radio and the layout is easy to use. The only reason I give 4 of 5 starts is the Android auto app. If you are plugged in you can't access music stored on your phone, only music apps. It also doesn't alert you when emails come in. Also it can take up 2-3 min to connect your phone to the unit. This might be an issue with Android auto and not the receiver; this is my first experience with this app.

      This Kenwood unit was purchased to replace a factory upgrade that was a Kenwood as well. I couldn't get the navigation firmware to update so I decided to look for something with SiriusXM and Navigation. I purchased this unit because my phone's navigation is what the unit uses via Android Auto. I didn't even have to purchase any extras to retain my steering wheel controls. This was an excellent buy.

      Great system

      I replaced a 10 year old radio. This one sounds 10 times better quality. It works great with my Iphone. I added the front and rear cameras which work good also. I like that I can use the 7" display for playback. The only complaint that I have is I wish the screen was non glare. It is a great system!

      Love the Faceplate

      The faceplate is a little harder to use than the Pioneer, but once you learn how to use it, then it will be 100% worth it. It navigates through the music playlist better than the Pioneer. I had a Pioneer, but I returned it to get this stereo just because of the faceplate. If you play around with the faceplate, you'll learn it really fast.

      For it not having a CD/DVD player, it was exactly was I was looking for. Nav systems are a thing of the past. Android Auto and Apple Carplay are a better solution for Maps. Stereo has tons of features and system tweaks. Pair it with a vehicle that can utilize iDatalink Maestro RR and retain factory features and display OBD2 information on the display.
