Great sounding radio but that's about it!!

Steve12975, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: I've had this radio for just over a year and the sound quality is great. The display is very colorful easy to see(but not in the sun) but that is a problem with any radio. The face plate slides to the left and right when you change channels it just gets worse after about six months. Now the radio turns on and off(looses connection all the time) I have to slide it back and forth to get the face plate to turn back on. the radio is still playing while this is happening.

  • Summary: UNIT HAS GOOD SOUND AND WORKS WELL WITH IPOD. THE UNIT IS HARD TO USE WHILE DRIVING. MENUS AND SCREEN IS HARD TO READ BECAUSE OF GLARE AND NO PRESET BUTTONS. MY MAIN COMPLAINT IS THE BLUETOOTH FEATURE. I HAVE WORKED WITH KENWOOD FOR 8 MONTHS AND CAN NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM. AFTER YOU REGISTER YOUR PHONE AND ESTABLISH THE BT FEATURE, IT WILL STAY CONNECTED FOR 3 DAYS OR THREE WEEKS. THEN ONE DAY YOU GET IN THE CAR, AND THE UNIT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE YOUR PHONE.

Didn't think it'd be this good...

Kazie Satoh, Amazon

  • Summary: I didn't expect the iPod control would be this convenient. I use a GPS navigation app and listen to music while I drive as many does. Before this unit, I had to switch those apps all the time, it being a bit hazardous. But now, I can control Music & Pandora apps in the unit, while keeping navigation on my iPhone's screen. And also Pandora keeps playing music without ads intervention. Kenwood must be paying for it and I thought it was a bonus for us.

Much better than previous Kenwood models

Nathan Thompson, Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: The controls on these new Kenwoods are MUCH more intuitive than the models I've owned in the past. Crossover setup is a breeze. Some have made comment about difficulty reading the display in the day time. I don't find this to be the case with my legal tinted windows. May be a problem in vehicles with factory solar tint only. Great product, Several of my friends have taken an interest in upgrading their receivers since playing with this new Kenwood.

I absolutely love this head unit!

Kenny J. Dyer, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: This head unit by Kenwood is awesome! I do wish, as others have said, that a paper copy of the manual was included.. You'll definitely want to read the manual, this head unit has a ton of features, settings, & options. First thing I had to fix was the fact that it comes default by only playing music through the front speakers with you're connected by bluetooth. You have to change the settings to ALL.
