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.

    Kenwood DDX371

    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.

    Crutchfield response on Tuesday, April 07, 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.

    Great Head Unit

    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 impr
