Good stereo

  • Summary: The stereo sounds great in my 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix after you read the manual and know how to adjust the settings. Bluetooth works good with no problems connecting to my iPhone but sound could use some improvement.

Disappointed

  • Summary: When buying this unit I thought that previous Kenwood quality would carry on to this unit. The mic doesn't work; everyone told me I sounded like I was in a tin can and I always ended up disconnecting and just holding my phone.

Great sound, phone not so good

  • Summary: I purchased mine to replace a 13 year old Pioneer CD/AM/FM stereo in my Dodge Ram Truck. My previous stereo experiienced water damage in the driver door speaker so my initial setup was with the 3 functional speakers unitl my new speakers arrive. This unit was a breeze to install.

Not disappointed, but not extatic

  • Summary: First, the bad: The microphone seems weak at best. I'm going to look at the possibility of attaching and external mic for the bluetooth connectivity to my phone. Right now, I practically have to yell for anyone to hear me.

I like it

  • Summary: First off, get an engineering degree first so you can actually understand the manual and make adjustments on this thing! It took me an hour to figure out how to set the clock on it and I still haven't figured how to manually adjust the tuner or do a scan for music.

Too complicated, not easy to operate.

Jorge A. Alvarez, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this car stereo and I regreted, it is too complicated, if you are driving you need to stop to adjust your equalizer or to change any settings, it is not practical, in the other hand it has good sound.

  • Summary: I do not like this car stereo. I am going to try to return it for a refund. First time I ever said that about a Kenwood. Pros - good sound when listening to music, ipod control and plug in on the front cons - when trying to use the bluetooth there is a horrible buzz so I cannot hear who I am talking...
