Summary: I've had this unit for two years. This player offers great functionality. I love the Garmin integration and the iPod functionality through the unit. The controls can even be used to skip a sond while listening to the Pandora app on the iPhone. Where this unit falls short is in the interface.
Summary: Needless to say, this unit has tremendous features, ones that I used to only dream about all in one place. Kenwood really did their market research before putting this unit together. Unfortunately their engineers slacked.
Exceptional sound & nav, difficult to learn functionality
9 May 2010
Summary: Sound quality exceeds expectations! Navigation is above average - voice commands that work! All the navigation options AND GPS SETTINGS can be set by voice command! The accuracy of voice command interface is very good.
Summary: What do you want to know? Is it a good product that does what it supposed to do? Yes! You have to buy a hook up to connect your ipod to it so you can play the videos on your ipod. You have to buy the rear cam also to hook up to it. It is a great product. I love watching my ipod videos on it.
Summary: Update - Apr 23, 2011 I am very frustrated with this player and I wish I had bought something else. I use it for four things: * Listening to music stored on a USB memory stick, * Listening to the radio (mostly HD stations), * Hands-free phone conversations, and * Navigation.
Summary: Bought this radio a couple weeks ago and just love this unit. It took me some time to learn how everything works, ipod, ipod video, DVD, navigation, bluetooth and XM. It has great sound, the navigation system gives you the street speed limit that you are on, on the right hand corner.
Summary: This product is efficiently packed with all the top features available in today's in-car entertainment technology. Unlike some of the other in-dash video units available from Kenwood, this model does not require any remote mount navigation module or accessory interface module.
Summary: Absolutely superb head-unit/nav system/etc. I had someone else do the installation, so I can't really comment properly on the ease of install. But using it, while seemingly complicated, really isn't bad at all.
