It's got the goods
Kenwood's DDX471HD DVD receiver delivers an impressive set of features for your car audio system upgrade. You'll enjoy compatibility with many iPhone® apps, comprehensive iPod®/iPhone controls, a built-in HD Radio™ tuner, and Bluetooth® capability. You'll take control from a bright 6.1" touchscreen with a simple menu that makes it easy to dive right in, so you can start enjoying its many features. You can even adjust the button color to match your dash.
Easy Bluetooth pairing with your iPhone (and works with Siri, too)
The DDX471HD's Apple Auto Pairing automatically recognizes your iPhone when you plug into the USB port and sends a pairing request. Just press a button on the receiver's touchscreen and your iPhone is paired. If you've got an iPhone with Siri, you can access Siri through the receiver — no need to pick up the phone or change what you're doing.
The DDX471HD sports a clean, easy-to-use interface.
The DDX471HD offers fingertip control over your Pandora® Internet radio stations when your smartphone's connected by USB (iPhone) or via Bluetooth (Android and iPhone). Kenwood's iPhone App Mode lets you stream video content from sources like Netflix and YouTube when your car's parked . Another big plus — load Garmin's impressive Street Pilot app on your iPhone 4 or 4S, and you can display maps and directions on the receiver's screen, so you can stay on course during your travels.
Enjoy music and videos
And if you think that radio has "jumped the shark," try out the crystal clear sound of the built-in HD radio tuner and access the additional channels broadcast by participating stations. If you spend a lot of time in your car, you should consider adding an optional SiriusXM tuner to this Kenwood — you'll be able to check out the in-depth music, news, and entertainment programming offered on satellite radio, and your favorite stations will never fade away.
You can watch your favorite DVDs or iPod video 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.
