It probably won't work a year from now and Garmin knows it

  • Summary: I contacted Garmin to find out which of their new GPS units would continue to work even after LightSquared starts broadcasting broadband transmissions like they are getting ready to do right now, and Garmin customer service didn't have enough confidence in any of their currently manufactured GPS units to pomise me they would work a year from now.

Terrible.

  • Summary: I called Kenwood and they said a 1.5 second delay before the interface even responds to your action is normal. Poor design if they feel that way. The unit is too slow to even use. I'll be selling this and buying a Pioneer. I will never buy a Kenwood ever again after this experience. Crutchfield was very helpful in putting me in touch with the right people, who unfortunately, were not able to help (Kenwood).

Poor product but good service......

  • Summary: My Kenwood DNX7180 was non-stop to restart when I installed this unit about 2 months only. I tried to hit the reset button but it didn't work at all. I removed this unit from my car then shipped to the service center for repair. I found the repairing service was out source to third party service center instead of Kenwood service center; However, unbelievable that third party service center was provided an excellence service for this unit.

Awesome

  • Summary: Ordered this multimedia/nav head unit. Installation was fairly easy. Shortly after installing the unit, I updated the software from 1.4.0 to 1.6.0. Everything works great. The unit itself is fast. Hitting the touch screen seems snappy. The audio sounds great. I am gonna order headrest video monitors next, so the kids can watch dvd's on long trips.

So much potential Software fails it

  • Summary: Bought the DNX7180 from Best Buy.. They said it was the newest and best, I bit... Okay had to add camera, add Sat radio, add sterring, add HD rec, add longer BT cable.. So be prepared this unit needs much to make even half of the icons do anything. If you dont have an Iphone or Ipod about 1/3 of the rest of the icons do nothing. They should have made this being 2001 model not only for use with Apple OS but with Android.

Fantastic indash GPS that lives up to the reviews and well worth the price.

  • Summary: Better than expected. GPS works, reroute is quick. Available options, such as USB, bluetooth,etc....work very well. Bluetooth mic is clearer than when normally using the phone. I spent six months reading reviews on all the comparable in dash GPS units, and by far the Kenwood 7180 had the best overall reviews, and now that I have used it for awhile I see why.

  • Summary: Where do I start... picked this up at best buy... had it installed by the guys there... they sucked but that's not what this review is about. Firstly... the is my first review ever... I'm writing this because I don't want anyone else to buy this pos. For $1200 it better "work" 1. It locked up 1 day after getting it. 2. It became super sluggish before it locked up. 3.
