Add Bluetooth® and multi-media versatility

Kenwood's DDX371 sets a high mark for in-dash DVD receivers, offering compatibility with many iPhone® apps, comprehensive iPod® controls, and built-in Bluetooth. Its bright 6.1" touchscreen and simple menu interface make it easy to use, so you can spend your time enjoying its many features and less time reading the manual.

Getting started with Bluetooth is easy. When you connect your iPhone to the USB port, the receiver automatically recognizes the phone and sends out a pairing request. Just press a button on the DDX371's touchscreen and you're ready to go.

Kenwood DDX371 DVD receiver

Movies look fantastic on the Kenwood's screen when you're parked.

iPhone® app control

Kenwood's iPhone App Mode lets you take control of some cool apps from the receiver's touchscreen — like video content from sources like Netflix and YouTube when your car's parked (extra cables required). The DDX371 also offers fingertip control over your Pandora® Internet radio stations when your smartphone's connected via USB or Bluetooth. Another big plus — if you've got Garmin's impressive Street Pilot app loaded on your iPhone 4 or 4S (or iPad® 1, 2, and 3), you can display maps and directions on the receiver's screen, so you can stay on course during your travels.

Play your music and videos

When your iPod or iPhone's connected, you can view album art and browse through your playlists with a few swipes of your finger. And your legacy media is good to go too — the DDX371 plays all your CDs, DVDs, and recordable discs, and you can plug a thumb drive loaded with hours of music into the receiver's USB input. This Kenwood also gives you a rear input for your A/V sources. And if you think that radio isn't cool any more, add a SiriusXM tuner to this Kenwood and find out how entertaining satellite radio can be.

You can watch your favorite DVDs on the built-in screen whenever you're parked. But if you're traveling, you can entertain your back seat passengers while you drive — just set them up with an external screen and wireless headphones and they can watch video content while you drive.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Kenwood stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and this Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

Note: Bluetooth compatibility with this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Paired this with the kicker 6x8's. This combo sounds great, easy to install wiring. Haven't hooked up a second screen or back up camera, so no comment on dual zone and reverse camera yet. DVD operates as it should. Bluetooth is the main feature I wanted and dual zone was another. Bluetooth is easy to use and sounds good. This is the most I've spent on an aftermarket head unit and my first Kenwood. I would make this purchase again. Crutchfield made it easy for me to find exactly what I wanted. My only complaint is about the shipping, I payed for overnight and didn't get it for three days.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    Crutchfield response on April 7, 2015 We're sorry the overnight delivery fell through. We had your order boxed and out the door well before lunchtime. According to UPS, the delay was caused by inclement weather (February snowstorms). Even so, we refunded the extra shipping fee back to your account.

    Excellent!

    I purchased one from a dealer who installed it for me. The first unit had problems with the phone app not working properly when connected to my iPhone and was replaced. The sound quality was awesome. The second unit was installed and the sound quality was poor. I tried everything to adjust the sound but it just was not the same as the first unit. About 6 months later I started having problems with the xm antenna cutting out, blue tooth stopped working and certain phone features quit working. I could plug my phone in and listen to Pandora but I could not use the phone or listen to mp3. Bluetooth would not let me initialize and lost all settings from connected phones. I am in process of getting another replacement and am hoping I can get something other than a Kenwood, No more Kenwoods for me.

    Pros: None : I am very unsatisfied with this unit

    Cons: There is no built in microphone mute button when talking on the phone. Must revert to actual phone screen which is a distraction and unsafe when you have an auto lock. Expected easier sound settings No equalizer controls UI is clunky and needs serious improvements specifically around the phone UI and searching for music Voice recognition only seems to work when launching it from the phone, unit voice recognition activation does not always work.

    Got this because it had decent reviews and a volume knob. Yes, a volume knob. A feature that was probably the best thing about this stereo. However, it didn't make up for the other pitfalls of the unit. It seems as though not a single headunit manufacturer has it perfect yet. Am I being picky? Maybe...but I'd prefer for my car modifications to look and function relatively bespoke, unlike some units that otherwise conjure images of Fast and the Furious interiors. Through all of this, Crutchfield was more than helpful and accommodating which is why I will always buy from them. Kudos to them. But I digress. Here's my thoughts:

    Pros: Bluetooth call quality was actually pretty decent! I never had to yell, repeat myself, or otherwise enunciate like an idiot...which is nice. The fit and trim of the unit itself was also very nice. It included the cage and trim ring that looked perfect in my car (98 Volvo V70), which I have later learned is a luxury as other manufacturers often don't include either. The volume knob came in clutch, and I can yet to decipher Why some manufacturers prefer 2/10ths of an inch more screen than a knob.

    Cons: Bluetooth connection was spotty, frequently making me switch between sources to Finally connect to my phone. Sound quality was pretty sub-par, no matter how well I EQ'd the system, and sound would frequently dip in volume at random times. The interface itself was pretty miserable and reminiscent of something from 1999 and had figured that Some improvements were made since it's 2015 after all. Phone book was useless to download from your phone, because it constantly froze. Spotify? Only using BT.

    Great upgrade from stock!!!

    Very nice. Especially for the price. Satellite and Bluetooth hooked up super easy. Sounds great with the new speakers. Only frustration was during install. The screws were too short to attach the kit bracket to the sides of the unit. Had to run to the auto parts store with the dash apart.

    Pros: Sounds great. Easy hook up to satellite and Bluetooth.

    Cons: Having to run to store in middle of install for right screws. Larger display of station and clock would be nice.

    I like the look and functionality of the device. Easy to install and alot of hidden coolness I didn't know it had.

    Pros: All in one for ur entertainment needs optional head read work great. Easy to navigate threw the menus.

    Cons: No remote. Dvd still plays while listening to music but audio from head rest is not movie it's the radio. Not sure if that a possibility for Kenwood to change.

    Crutchfield response on February 24, 2015 Thanks for sharing your feedback on this stereo. It sounds like the backseat audio problem can be fixed either in the receiver's settings or by switching the audio output on rear of the stereo. Since you purchased the receiver from us, please call our Tech Support team and they'll help you figure it out.

    Cons: Had to cut out the factory metal bracket in the rear of the factory radio opening which took some time and a dremel.

    I was watching this DVD player for a few months and got a great deal on Black Friday pricing. I've had it installed in my 2013 Honda FIt for 3 months and no issues at all. Install time was 4-5 hours, but 1/2 that was spent soldering and heat shrinking the wiring harness. I called tech support twice and got just the answers needed for a smooth installation. I definately did not rush the install. I could do this again in about 90 minutes.

    The receiver has better than factory FM reception. The 18 presets are plenty. I was able to keep the factory location for the USB hookup in the glovebox and the included Matra installation kit looks like a factory installation. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

    Pros: great price better than OEM quality

    Cons: none

Install time was like 30 minutes from start to finish with the plug and play harness. You do have to connect a few wires but if you can read you should be good to go.

    Great radio, it has all the bells and whistles that I was looking for. Only had it installed last week so I haven't really explored all the functions. This is my 2nd Kenwood that I owned and I'm very happy with their product

    I purchased the Kenwood DDX371 to replace the factory CD player on my 2008 Toyota Sienna. It was fairly easy to install with the installation kit provided by Crutchfield and I also installed the PAC SWI-RC Steering Wheel Control Adapter with relative ease. The only tricky part was the brake switch wire, and the Crutchfield technicians were unable to help me out, but I did a little internet research and found how to display the videos. Once installed, the receiver worked as it should. I mainly use the USB to play music and videos. The Bluetooth works well and the microphone that comes with the receiver does its job. As some have stated, this screen does not do well with sun glare. The sound was not as rich as I expected from a Kenwood, but it's probably because I'm used to their eXcelon series. All in all, this is a great DVD receiver with great value.

    Pros: Value, easy to use, Bluetooth, USB, Video, DVD, CD

    Cons: Good, but not amazing sound. Display is hard to see in the sun.

    This is a nice a/v unit. I bought it to allow me to display my rearview camera and to have Bluetooth service. In addition, it has lots of other nice features, including USB input. I was unsure about connecting a couple of the wires (power control and antenna control), so I just left them unconnected. Everything else was pretty straightforward about the installation. After spending three days getting everything in, camera wired, etc. I was quite satisfied. When I drove out into the sunlight, the display was hard to see. When I put on my sunglasses that I always use in the car, the display all but disappeared. Later, I concluded that the sunglasses are polarized and I need to see if I can get a more useful pair that will allow me to see the display. I have not tested the Bluetooth phone yet, but Bluetooth audio works very well from my iPhone5.

    Pros: Nice radio. Lots of inputs to use. Lots of adjustability. Does everything I bought it for. Good installation instructions. All necessary hardware included.

    Cons: Display is hard to see in sunlight, impossible with sunglasses on. Have to remove lots of panels (in 2011 Prius) to remove radio if you decide to plug in different wires in back of unit.

    This deck was a great upgrade to my 5+ year old Touchscreen deck i previously had. It sounds better both thru my door speakers and my subwoofer (12in Alpine type-R). Bluetooth and Ipod work great! A big plus for me is custom wallpapers. Looks like it's not available here anymore, but it was worth the price i Paid. The bluetooth calling is pretty awesome too. handsfree talking makes driving a lot easier!

    Pros: Great Deck. Sounds awesome. easy to navigate. Ipod ready. Bluetooth pairing is easy! The deck also controls your phone's music player through bluetooth

    Cons: The Album artwork screen looks kinda weird. It's not a steady screen, it's kind of bouncy. So I turned it off and just have the artist and title screen. There's a setting if you have to change when you play music through bluetooth. I uninstalled the deck 3x to see if i messed up the wiring harness. It was a simple change in the settings menu. (music only played thru the front speakers).

    It can be a little tricky to install if you really have no clue what you're doing. However if you do your homework and get it set up right there really isn't a better head unit you can get for the price. (I bought on sale from Crutchfield for around $200). Haven't used the video much, but bypassing the ground away from the parking brake was so simple it seemed wrong, but it wasn't.

    Pros: Sleek and stylish. Loads up my roughly 1,500 song iPod quickly. Decent customization options. Nice X-Over settings. Fairly straight forward install. Dash kit was included! Free shipping!? Free harness kit!?! Crutchfield is amazing!

    Cons: Catches finger prints. It doesn't drive my car for me.

    After several hours and attempts, I could not get this radio located appropriately in my dash. Easy to install otherwise and Crutchfield's tech support is great. I will be exchanging for an Alpine single DIN model instead. Factory mounting brackets aren't compatible with this head unit.

    Pros: Easy Bluetooth connection and nice display.

    Cons: iPod and iPhone integration could be better and sound quality is inferior compared with Alpine. Don't try to install in a Nisaan Altima with dash similar to the 2000 model year.

    Massive upgrade from the stock radio in my 2000 ford f250! The backup camera feature is great for backing up to trailers. No more getting out of the truck 5 time before getting the the ball lined up. Sound quality is awesome. Built in cross over, so now i cant wait to get a sub woofer and amp.

    Pros: backup camera input, Pandora control through your phones Bluetooth, great number of features and settings especially for the price.

    Cons: i wish i could make the screen a lot dimmer than it gets at night time.

    great sound!!!! Very easy function control.

    My stock Tundra 6 disc JBL system sounded good. I couldn't believe how much better it sounded with this receiver. I rarely use discs anymore and the bluetooth compatabilty makes all the music on my android phone easily available. Don't even get me started on the pandora options. Finally, this system is setup forplug and play sirius/xm play for a minor cost upgrade that allows 80 stations for a $9.99 a month fee. So basically I have music/video/pandora and satellite for a small price.

    Pros: Also has a backup camera video option.

    Cons: None yet!

    I have an 09 Toyota Highlander Base mode. This gave me a screen for backup cam, screen is responsive, intuitive interface, using mainly music apps via Bluetooth (Amazon music, iheart radio, Pandora, Podcasts, Songza, Tunein Radio. Sound quality is outstanding, and display shows. Artist, title, Album, etc. I'm 53, and the last time I installed a car stereo, was 35yrs ago, when I open ended up the head unit, steering wheel adapter, and install cables I took a big swallow and wondered if it was a major mistake to take on the project myself. After several calls for help from Crutchfield I had the unit successfully installed. I hooked up a cheap backup cam I had from another car, and it looks great. A nice option on the newer head units like this is the capability to display the cam when not in reverse. I programmed the phone button for a long press to display the cam. I will use this feature when towing my boat and dirt bikes, very handy..

    Pros: It's all good

    Cons: When using a cam, the reverse screen displays a disclaimer to check the surroundings. Would be nice if there was a way to turn this off, promised i won't sue Kenwood.

    Great sound, plenty of power even if not using an amp. Installed in 2013 Corolla alon with SirrusXM module and steering whell control module. Insatal was very east but expect alot of time spent on soldering your connections. Control interface is very intuitive. I am running JBL 2 ways in doors and back deck and sounds amazing. Bletooth mic sounds great as well when making calls

    Pros: Clean sound, deep bass amazing treible. lots of custiomization options. intuitive controls. Flawless bluetooth operation

    Cons: Not much really. User manial is very small, could use a larger wiring diagram.

    Great bang for the buck.

    Major upgrade in sound quality over factory head unit with Kicker speakers that had already been installed. Blue tooth works flawlessly with I Phone 5S and 6. Unit is easy to learn how to use (with a few exceptions) and looks great in my 2007 F150.

    Pros: Sound quality, ease of use, excellent blue tooth hands free operation with I Phone 5S and 6.

    Cons: Not major flaws but, factory default for bluetooth only uses the front two speakers(easy to change in settings), Pandora and USB will not play audio with I phone 5S or 6 with factory settings either. You need to put the receiver in standby ( not in the instruction) to change the settings from I Pod to AV2 to get the audio to work.

    I gave the "Coolness Factor" a 3 because the lack of iPhone 6 support is pretty weak. I bought the deck wanting to use the USB Video Application mode for maps and navigation come to find out that it only works with the 30 pin iOS Devices. No Support for lightning video app mode. Also on the iPhone 6 it does not support SMS Notifications. Other than that it is a great little deck. Good sound, very stable device and fun features.

    Pros: Sound Quality, Bluetooth Handsfree Calling, DVD Playback of movies and video files from USB, Change background to any JPG you want

    Cons: Very minimal iPhone 5 and 6 support. Bluetooth calling and audio and Pandora link and that is about it.

    Great headunit; I have had double din Kenwood headunits in my last 5 cars...all of them great. They are super easy to use and navigating the menus is simple (maybe I'm used it now). This unit has the bluetooth feature that is great with my iPod. When I get in and start the car, it automatically syncs with my iPod. You can add multiple devices for it to recognize. I don't have a sub in my current car, but if you add one, there is a separate option to adjust just the subwoofer with this headunit. Overall, great headunit and wouldn't buy any other than Kenwood!

    Still working on all the applications and features but enjoying the new receiver so far. Setting up the unit isn't always straight forward and Tech Support had to be called in three times to get the unit working with all the inputs - Bluetooth (default setting is front speakers only, so rear speakers don't play until you select "ALL"), iPod (if you're using standard iPod cables you have to switch the receiver to "AVN2" instead of "iPod". Only use "iPod" you use Kenwood cables), and Pandora (haven't figured out the direct connection to the receiver yet as compared to streaming the app via Bluetooth.

    Pros: Good sounding unit, great display

    Cons: Confusing/quirky set up

    I read tons of reviews before i made this choice. I went to a local store to see the units and to try the functionality. The pioneer looked a lot cheaper and didnt have a volume knob. Everything is straight forward and easy! The only reason for four star and not five, is the reception is horrible. It goes in and out... Fuzz then no fuzz. And now that its cheaper then when i bought it last week, i hope Crutchfield gives me a store credit!!

    Pros: Look, volume knob

    Cons: Bad tuner reception

    I replaced the head unit of my 2004 Toyota Sienna and am very pleased. It was simple to install and everything works properly. I purchased the recommended interface to allow the streering wheel volume controls and surround sound to operate. When playing a movie, it is theater sound quality and a great picture. We have an a/m dvd player that operates from the Kenwood head for playing the video and sound portion. We were not looking for competition quality sound, but are enjoying the benefits of high end sound.

    Pros: Did all that was advertised. Instances the sound of the factory JBL sound system. Bluetooth works great and sounds the same as the Sync system on my 2014 car.

    Cons: Instructions for actual usage and functionality are a bit vague.

    I tend to research things to death before making a purchase so as to eliminate the "darn....wish I had" syndrome. This radio was an excellent upgrade. Like some others, it is not clear in the instructions from Kenwood or Crutchfield that the blue "power antenna" wire MUST be connected else your AM stations will not work. I learned this the hard way and had to pull my radio back out after a very clean and successful installation. The 2010 Corolla as well as many other vehicles now seem to have an antenna amplifier and it needs to be connected. I liked the fact this radio allows you set the panel colors so as to match your dash. While the background screen allows for customization I have yet to discover how to change the start-up screen so as to allow displaying a Toyota logo for an even more OEM look. At first I was looking for a radio with a totally flat screen and controls without a knob sticking out. I'm really glad I went with this model. The volume knob is not offensive and provides an easy and much safer way to adjust the volume while driving in my opinion. The DVD is a great feature however I was a little disappointed when calling tech support that they "don't research that far" for installing the green ground wire that should attach to the parking brake switch and was directed to perform a YouTube search. They were able to tell me I was to look for a tan wire as my car was manufactured in Canada and that was certainly appreciated. A great value for any vehicle IMO

    Pros: Lots of features that make it a pleasure to own over the stock radio. Bluetooth/phone integration was my main reason for upgrading and this radio delivers flawlessly. Ability to dim with lights and adjust level a plus. Very clean and well thought-out design and layout. Menus are intuitive with little need for referencing the manual...but don't throw it out! :-) Allows for a reverse camera Works with Siri Reception is excellent on FM as well as AM (now that antenna amplifier wire is connect

    Cons: Power antenna connection was not clear. Would like to have seen a built in microphone but was not a deal breaker. Not everything on the iPhone screen will appear on the radio screen even with the suggested adapter cable. This may be an Apple issue however. Would like to have seen a way to customize the start-up screen, not just the background.

    Pros: Easy to install, sound boost was awesome.

    Installed in my tow vehicle (2003 GMC 3500). Although Crutchfield lists a rear bracket must be cut out to install the Kenwood it did not. The Kenwood fit perfectly, so if you have a 2003-2006 GM full sized pickup you should be good to install this without any cutting. My FM reception is superb. I do not use AM bands. The Kenwood's 22 watts RMS push four 80 watt RMS Alpine speakers just fine. Bluetooth calls and music works great. Using the USB interface with iPhone 6 through Lightning requires changing the setting from iPod to AV2 to work. I had to disable album artwork to avoid problems with the display during USB connection. They really should have a front USB input and 3.5 mm aux input on the front. All in all very easy install with provided kit and door chime adapter. Very happy with the stereo pending it providing a few years of trouble free service.

    Pros: Fits 03-06 GM trucks with no alterations Plenty of power for basic users Simple to use Good Bluetooth performance

    Cons: No remote included No front inputs (USB,3.5 mm) Can't customize startup screen only background wallpaper Doesn't illuninate when powered off with interior lights

    This stereo has many nice features: Bluetooth, ability to connect a backup camera, phone compatibility, & 3 outputs. It looks great on dashboard of a Subaru Forester. This sounds great on installed speakers. I had it installed by a local audio service company. Fortunately, I purchased a USB connect from Crutchfield, or I would not be able to use the USB option. Everything in this system is plugged in thru the back. I should have ordered an AUX input as well. But the installer found a $5 cord to connect from Video I output on back. He used the Subaru's AUX. Nothing is installed on Video II output. Iif you get this, think about what cords you will need. Our iPhone & IPad link via Bluetooth in a way not clear in booklet. Once you connect with Bluetooth (which is clear in directions), then you connect thru the Phone/Bluetooth icon. So far we can't get Pandora to work with Apple products, but Phone/Bluetooth link seems just as good, altho we're not getting images. Phonebook on Android phone links nicely. Not as many FM presets as I would like. Clearly I will be spending some time with the manual.

    Pros: Attractive. Sounds great. Bluetooth, once you figure it out. Backup camera connection. Customizable background image on main screen. Phone connections

    Cons: Bluetooth directions are unclear for linking Apple products, altho once you figure it out, it's fine. Everything on the back means planning ahead before installation. Using the buttons is a little awkward, maybe ill be easier after awhile.

    This was my first head unit install in over 20 years. It was fairly easy once I got past my fears of doing this to my Envoy. The unit fit nicely with the trim piece. The learning where to go to use all the aspects of this unit was pretty easy. All in all I think this is a pretty good unit.

    Cons:

    Great radio and outstanding customer support

    I haven't looked for an aftermarket radio for years and years and when I did it then it was such a pain to install so it has been a while. The DDX371 had everything I could ask for and it all works flawlessly. Great sound and even the Bluetooth phone sounds great on the receiving side. I have had no problems with any Bluetooth connections; It connects very quick. Ran the Pandora via Bluetooth and again, perfect. Got the SiriusXM tuner with the unit and again, perfect. I can't say anymore except this radio has it all and works as advertised plus at the price being sold here, it was $100.00 cheaper. I installed this unit into a 2000 Ford F350 dually and was very leery since it had been a long while since installing one. But with the help from the customer support, I had everything I needed and then some to get the install done within a matter of 5 hours. It only took that long because I took a lot of time studying where every thing went and how it fits before making any required modifications. I took it step by step and the install went off with out a hitch.

    Pros: Great price, easy install, easy to operate, it all works as advertised.

    Cons: No cons what-so-ever.

    Installed the radio into a 2000 Ford Superduty p/u. Install paperwork was confusing because although I bought all the correct parts, the primary install book didn't make it clear to disregard certain parts if installing with other parts. Also disappointed that the USB does not recognize certain music playing devices. Best I can figure is that it won't recognize the microchip that is in the device. The device will play through Blue Tooth, however.

    Pros: quality, sound, functionality

    Cons: confusing installation documentation, doesn't completely fit in the dish comforably as I would like for it to. unable to completely move icons around on the primary screen as I would like.

    Nice radio, rather easy install especially since Crutchfield gives you everything. ONE NOTE>>>Pay attention to the directions when trying to get an iPhone of any type to work. There is a secret step posted at the very top of a extra page that explains what you need to do before you sync your phone.

    This unit seems like it will last. Sound is good. The navigation part (getting through the screens) is a bare. The USB driver takes a good 2-3 mins to load! My factory unit was instant as I plugged it in. This one says "reading.." and stays like that for a good 3 mins! Don't listen it to the thumb drive that often but it does take a very long time which I find very annoying.

    Pros: Looks good Touch screen is large and easy to use (light touch needed)

    Cons: Takes it over 3 mins to read a USB thumb drive. Hard to navigate

    I love it

    I installed this in my Chevy Silverado,easy install, but I had to cut some plastic out inside the dash with a Fein tool,the unit looks great with the trim kit provided,the sound is very good ,lots of power,easy to figure out the controls with the touch screen and the blue tooth works well

    Pros: All around great stereo

    Got this about a week ago. Install was easy except for that dang green wire which I now know goes to your E break (no mention of that anywhere). I got the scoche brand wiring harness so I could keep my steering wheel controls and whatnot. The DDX371 is an all around good buy. I liked that I got a dvd player, bluetooth and all that other jazz for a great price. Messed around a little with the mic that it came with and still not sure of the quality.

    Pros: Bluetooth streaming, External Ipod adapter, ability to add a backup camera or backseat monitor.

    Cons: Wish there was a way to turn off the display at night as it is a little bright even dimmed all the way down when driving on dark roads. Wish the was a separate subwoofer control button on main screen or separate knob( I just installed an aftermarket PAC knob, problem solved). Wish there was a way to tap into the installed vehicle mic instead of using kenwoods.

    DDX371....Perfect

    I was looking for a replacement for my wife's car radio with everything except GPS. We checked out several manufacturers but came back to Kenwood. My wife loves this product.

    Pros: Easy setup, you can play songs or videos from a usb flash drive. Customize the screen for the media you want to use.

    Cons: Absolutely none

    This is an excellent Unit. If you do not need navigation this is a great choice. The back up camera is perfect for attaching a trailer without assistance.

    Pros: tons of features for the money.

    Cons: a bit of work to install in 2004 f250. Crutchfield talked me through the install excellent customer service

    The main reasons for replacing the stock radio in my 2006 Chrysler 330C were to have hands free calling, mp3 playback via flash drive, to retain steering wheel controls, and touch screen capability all at an affordable cost. The secondary reasons were to have the ability to add monitors in the back seat for the kids and to add a backup camera in the future. The nice to have features included extended Bluetooth capabilities for streaming Pandora and audio files from my Galaxy S4. Based on the listed reasons I am very happy with this purchase.

    Hands free calling works well and sounds very good on both sides of the connection. Not as good as factory installed hands free calling but they have the advantage of better microphone placement than any aftermarket unit ever will.

    The touch screen controls are nice and responsive. Given my hand size some of the buttons could be larger but they are well sized to the size of the screen. The screen itself always looks crisp and sharp except when sunlight hits it directly and washes it out but that's common with all LCD screens that I have encountered.

    Understanding that this is an entry level DVD receiver there are still some things I thought would be better. First and foremost is the speed in which a flash drive is read and browsed through. It is slow. Painfully slow. I have several 4Gb drives to limit the volume of information to speed this process. I shudder to think how slow browsing would be on a 16 or 32Gb volume.

    Pros: everything it advertises it does it does well.

    Cons: no front USB port slow flash drive browsing clunky interface (it be nice to customize what info shows during playback)

    Awesome

    This Kenwood double din head unit fits nicely in my 2006 Mustang GT. The instructions that came with the install kit were fairly easy to follow had some concerns with the wiring that didnt make sense. With a little research found out how the 12v to 5v converter was supposed to be wired in. And the factory pre-amp wiring kit when looked up by part number shows its supposed to have 4 rcas plugs. If doing the kit in a Mustang with factory subs in the doors put them in the sub preouts on the back of the head unit(not the front preouts like the instructions say). Overall quality of the product itself i was extremely pleased with. I usually run Pioneer in everything and this is my first dvd head unit let alone Kenwood and am very impressed with the amount of customizing that this product has. Even got the button colors to match my instrument panels color as well.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    This headunit cleans up my dash. Looks great! I'm running polk DXi571 all four speakers. They are great for mids and highs, but not really bass to complete the music. Buy the remote control, its a reach to adjust volume if your seat is set as mine. Remote control next on my list including 4" lift. The oem black screws you remove from factory radio will not work with the aftermarket metra dash kit using spacers that are included. You will need to cut off the backside plastic on the dash kit to slide it in. I installed DIY with a 2 minute call to Crutchfield about wire harness and complete! Sits flush with dash, works great, now I just need to add a sub and amp for complete sound. The headunit is awesome, bluetooth works great with android and pandora. Thanks Crutchfield for the help during install and great product, will be buying sub and amp soon.

    Pros: Great customer service, they took their time with me and helped every step!

    Cons: No cons on headunit or customer service!

    Great product, great pricing.

    Easy peasy bluetooth connection and with the added iPod connector I can display movies and TV shows from my iPod. Would have liked a more expanded EQ but beggers can't be choosers...

    Pros: Good display, quality output, easy connections.

    Cons: EQ is less than expected for the Kenwood brand name.
