Conclusion: The remote works when you put the batteries in as stated but on the other hand the buttons are hard to press when you try to change the song you have to press the button very hard to make it work. I was not pleased with the product.
Summary: Purchased to use with newly installed Kenwood DNX892 Its a large remote for a car, but the size is good. Easy to hold on to and wont fall between the seat and center console. There are many buttons of similar shape making identifying what you're pressing without looking at it.
Pros: Most common functions of the radio are included.
Controls the radio as a remote should.
Size, although it is large it turns out to be perfect size.
Cons: Had to purchase separately, you would think it would come with the head unit.
Summary: Bought this little remote to work with my Kenwood DDX373BT. Unboxed it, put the batteries in (which are included), and it worked instantly with my receiver. It will be great to be able to control the receiver while driving without having to look at it.
Pros: Works right out of the box. Batteries included. perfect size.
Cons: Wish some of the more used buttons (volume, etc.) were more prominent.
