Summary: Guess thats the way the ball rolls. So I sold the vehicle and had to sell it with broken unit. Told the guy to get it fixed and send me a bill. Hopefully Kenwood will back it up and repair it reasonably.
Summary: one of the reasons i baught this item was for the live trafic support but since MSN is dropping that program its not as valubale to me as it used to be, functionality is great easy to use i like the reverse tilt set up, is really nice. instal was rather simple took a few hours, had alittle help, but over all i think anyone that has wired a stereo could do it on their own.
Summary: I JUST PURCHASED THE DNX7140 AND HAD IT INSTALLED IN A CHEVROLET 2500HD SILVERADO. THE SILVERADO HAD THE BOSE SOUND SYSTEM WITH ALL STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS, XM RADIO, AND ON-STAR. SINCE I WANTED ALL OF THESE ITEMS TO WORK AFTER THE INSTALLATION, I HAD THE GEEK SQUAD AT BEST BUY INSTALL THE UNIT. AFTER THE INSTALLATION, ALL PREVIOUS FUNCTIONS WORK VERY WELL. THE NAVAGATION UNIT IS TREMENDOUS.
DNX-7140 is excellent but Bluetooth needed firmware upgrade

Summary: I Received My DNX-7140 a week ago. I had no trouble installing it. It is extremely packed with value and even sounds good without an external amplifier. Kenwood DNX7140 6.95-Inch Wide Double-DIN In-Dash Nagivation with Built-in Bluetooth USB/iPod Direct Control/DVD Receiver Pros: Garmin Navigation, DVD, IPOD Connectivity(however you need the Kenwood adapter $30 to have full functionality), Back up camera (separately about $200), Excellent Sound CONS: My Bluetooth...
Summary: The Kenwood DNX7140 is the second most satisfying consumer electronics product I have purchased recently. (The first is the LG BD 390 Network Blu-Ray Player). Both are, feature laden products, that--unlike many such complex gadgets--get more things right than wrong. The Kenwood manages to pack an extraordinary number of features into a relatively compact package, enabling vehicle owners to eliminate a whole host of separate, discreet components.
Summary: What I love: - Large Screen (6.95") - Lots of inputs (Ipod, Video RCA jacks, Bluetooth (can link to cell phone to play music), and sattelite radio if you have that. - The Garmin GPS is great (Great variety of vehicle icons and easy to update the maps. Also I like the fact that it shows the speed limit of every street you are on.) - Turns on quickly - The control that you have over the speakers is amazing.
