Summary: the item got here on time and safely packaged. it works well and has a large screen. i like the way it shows music album covers and tells who is playing what song. the navigation is quick and keeps up with the road.
Summary: I purchased this stereo for my Porsche Boxster 2006 after many research on the internet,it turns out that for the price,this is the one that the users score the best from many users, I am very happy with my purchase.
Summary: First, I would like to say that I'm an amazon.com addict! I buy everything I can from them and ALWAYS appreciate their friendly customer service and lightning fast shipping (even through their 3rd party sellers). There is only one reason you should buy the Kenwood DNX6960 - If you MUST have Garmin Navigation (and if it's priced VERY low).
Summary: The user interface of the DNX6960 is very well laid out, sources are very accessible, the touch screen is very responsive, the built in blue tooth works flawlessly, and Garmin navigation is the best. I'm very pleased with this purchase.
Summary: I installed the DNX6190 myself about 3 weeks to a month ago. I've only ever installed two head units myself, this and a DNX8120 previously. Like many people I gravitated to Kenwood because of the Garmin nav. That is what I am used to. I bought the unit (actually both units, at different times) off of ebay as used items. Had I paid $800-$1000 that I have seen online as new or refurbished then I might have taken away a star or two from my review. So keep that in mind.
Summary: Do not buy this piece of junk. I paid over $600 for Kenwood DNX5140 and it lasted me exactly 1 year and 6 months. Their warranty is only for a year. It just died on me out of no where. Not worth your money. BE AWARE!!!
Summary: This is an Awesome Unit. The reason I bought this was because of its GPS. Since I have been using Garmin GPSes, I am really comfortable with the GPS on this Unit. The iPod features is amazing, I play videos and also mp3 from my iPod and it plays it perfectly. The CD and DVD Is great also. The Sound Quality is amazing :D The telephone features is amazing also, I have had couple phones connected to it.
Summary: I originally chose this unit because I have a car with the Alpine IVA-W505 and although I like the quality the features are lacking extremely. I am a computer programmer and if I may say the user interface of the DNX6960 is awesome. Very well laid out, sources are easily accessible and the touch screen is very responsive. The built in blue tooth is also awesome!
Make Sure This Unit Is Compatible for Your Vehicle

Summary: I purchased this and all the little connection gizmos to replace the original navigation/radio unit in my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Bottom line, the audio on the navigation didnt work at all when anything else was on (even though the other items went silent when she was supposed to be giving directions), and I had no fade control (from the front to the back speakers).
