Summary: I shopped for quite a while before purchasing this. I was installing it in a jeep I use for 4 wheeling so I didn't want to put a high dollar unit in it. This unit filled the bill for price, quality, and features. It's been to the woods with me a dozen times and is holding it's own.
Summary: As a unit, has many features. Like that it plays from my iPod, has bluetooth connection for my android phone. USB drive with music is awesome, 16GB of music and plays forever. The cons: external phone microphone is nice idea but my toyota camry has too much cabin noise to be effective. My wife hates when I talk to her on it. The color scheme is very difficult to see in a very bright sun. I have to use the amber green, but even then it is sometimes hard to read.
Summary: This is a great car stereo. I love that it is so high tech but so easy to operate. It is really good with your iPhone or iPod to charge and listen to music. The Bluetooth is excellent. You get the excellent quality you expect from Kenwood. I love this thing. I have it in my X-terra and definitely takes care of business.
Summary: The unit was easy to install and the instructions were clear. The Bluetooth works great with my Samsung GS3 and automatically pairs in a seconds when I enter the car. Initial pairing took about a minute and the range is about fifteen feet from the unit. The sound is excellent and so far I have no complaints. Great Buy!
Summary: USB port didn't work right out of the box. Bluetooth is spotty and radio reception is below average. I should have gone with my gut and bought a Sony. I will never purchase another Kenwood system.
Summary: Was relatively easy for self-install (I highly recommend purchasing a wiring harness and steering wheel control interface if applicable). The Pandora functionality is great, when it works. USB & Aux is a nice plus, but with Pandora & bluetooth I never use them. 95% of the time I use Pandora, and the other 5% I play music on my phone via bluetooth & Google Music.
