    Good, but could easily be improved

    The stereo head unit functions pretty well. I haven't done much with mine other than listening to albums & songs off an external USB stick but it indeed sounds great with mp3s. There are two areas of improvement I wish this deck had 1) more intuitive navigation through folders/albums/songs since it's not as quick as it could be 2) the led display is really chunky. Like 1976 calculator chunky. Not sure why they haven't updated the technology in the display it makes the unit look pretty low tech.

    Great radio but not for a convertible. The flat screen is impossible to see in bright light with the top down. Software is not well thought-out but it works. XM radio screen only has one screen that identifies the XM station number but not on the same screen as the name of the song or artist. Should be able to hide screens for functions not being used rather than having to cycle through all of them every time when alternating between XM and the radio functions.

    We have had this car stereo in for nearly a month now. It was fairly easy to program and start using just before our first road trip with it installed. The sound quality is good and the Bluetooth phone audio is clear. The BT works flawlessly, picking up calls and switching between modes. The display is a bit bright, so I may see if that can be toned down. Being able to turn off the beeping when buttons are pressed was a huge help too.

    Loving it so far. Love the blue tooth connectivity with my phone- calls and music sound great. Probably blasting my music too loud, but already had too get new speakers; should have had them installed when I bought the radio. Only complaint is it takes the radio and my phone a few seconds to sync when I get in- but that’s probably to be expected. Even us “Olds” want everything quick now days!

    I’ve had the unit for several months now and it’s worked great. Maybe has too many settings for audio for my expertise so it takes some time for me to adjust. This is my 3rd Kenwood double din and I like using a stereo that has real buttons rather than a full touch screen. Its much safer to feel for the buttons than to have to look at a screen and hope you touch the correct “button”.

    I bought a cheap dual radio from Walmart and the Bluetooth sucked and stereo made constant buzzing noise... replaced it with this one and sounds amazing and Bluetooth automatically connects unlike the Walmart one. Will be keeping this one and returning the other one to Walmart tomorrow

    This Kenwood deck hooked up to my stock Bose system perfectly. My Bluetooth phone and Pandora, mapquest, etc. Work flawlessly. I would highly recommend this for Chevy Silverado owners. I'm sure it works well with all automotive companies.

    Our 2012 GMC Factory Stereo was going out, so needed to get something low in budget but offered similar features. As a whole the Receiver is very nice, works great and very pleased with it. What we are concerned about is the Steering Wheel Buttons not working correctly now - was not told this either. Not getting any answers about this either.

    Sometimes I wonder if I made the right decision for choosing this one because of the features and the fact that the bass in the back of my car couldn’t be hooked to it according to the tech that installed it. Will I had more choice in the font. The font looks kind of outdated for the price.

    I have an older car so I could not connect my iPhone to it. I saw this Kenwood on sale and decided to go for it. Now, my iPhone automatically connect to the Kenwood. I can finally listen to my Playlists and talk on the phone hands-free.

    This is a great sound system for my 2005 Toyota 4 runner. The blue tooth connected to my Phone perfectly, the sound quality of the blue tooth is great too

    This stereo was on sale and the installer said it was a good stereo for the price and he was absolutely right! It works great!! And it’s nice to be able to change the color of the stereo from time to time.

    Great after market Bluetooth which includes phone, Pandora, Spotify, etc. We needed a Bluetooth radio to update our van. Great purchase for the price. We also love the colors. The speaker for the phone could be louder though.

    Store installed. Radio face not flush with face of new dash panel. Do not know if it can be adjusted. Radio is working as advertised. Would have purchased a better Kenwood had I known the LED colors could be customized.

    seriously I bought it twice I had a used car that became a money pit so I sold it and bought another used car and that one needed a radio. I was impressed from the first one so I bought it again and I am still happy with it.

    I bought this for my 17 year old son and he really likes the radio. It is a great radio for the tech savy. He likes the variable color change options. The overall illumination for the system is a nice bonus. The bluetooth is also really nice.

    Radio works great as its better than the oem. A few things to remember, to purchase the wiring for easy plug and play and the housing for the radio depending on your vehicle model.

    I bought this stereo for my 01 Ford Mustang GT and it looks and sounds great with the stock Mach1 audio system. I like all the settings it has and color options.
