Music sources like your iPod® or Pandora® Internet radio pack a lot of info along with your music — info like song titles, artists, and albums. If your car's radio doesn't give you the full picture, why not step up to a receiver with a better display? The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X496 boasts a selectable 2- or 3-line display that puts song info in front of you in large easy-to-read characters. And the display and button colors can be varied to match almost any dashboard, so your new receiver will look like it belongs in your car.
