Summary: Kenwood makes excellent electronics, IMO, and this unit is easy to use, has a crystal clear screen, and works well with either iPhones or Android devices. I have it in my 2007 CRV and it fits perfectly. The only reservation is the bluetooth mic. The HU syncs with my iPhone perfectly but every call I make on it, the person on the other end says I sound garbled and they cannot understand me. I have tried numerous times to re-position the mic with no success.
Summary: Bought for an 2006 f-150, easy to instal with the help of someone who is slightly mechanically inclined. Got the metra 70-5520 wiring harness and it conected easily, just youtubed how to ground the parking brake override so passengers can still watch movies when i drive. Bluetooth works great for calls and playing music through (i have an iphone). All and all a really sharp looking head unit that works great!
Summary: I've returned this product due to the wires being tampered with and the product not being able to fully function. The bluetooth does not connect. It appeared as if the product was damaged prior and someone tried to jimmy rig some wires in there and continue to advertise it as "new". This is my first time dealing with this company and i hope we can get this situation fixed.
Summary: I got a 'new to me car' 2 weeks ago with a 10 year old stereo and was very excited to order my new kenwood ddx419 dvd/stereo. It arrived in a plain, opened, too large cardboard box with nothing padding or protecting it. 2 days ago I paid $120 to have someone professionally install it and when it was all put in and they started testing it out none of the buttons worked.
Summary: Great stereo, looks are very good, easy install and has a wide variety of color options for most car lighting. Bluetooth is great, The only thing I would mention to Kenwood is look at how large the Android market is, Not everyone has or likes Apple products.
