Kenwood DNX719VHD navigation receiver

Your VW deserves a truly outstanding receiver

Breathe new life into your Volkswagen with Kenwood's DNX719VHD multimedia navigation receiver. It fits right into the dash of select 2006-up Volkswagens, with no additional dash kit needed. You get a factory look with a slew of great features, including touchscreen navigation, Bluetooth® connectivity, DVD playback, an HD Radio™ tuner, smartphone app access, and much more. And a wealth of connections allows you to enjoy music from your thumb drive or iPod®, as well as songs or files on disc.

Guidance by Garmin

GPS guidance by Garmin

A super-fast processor combines with Garmin navigation software to bring you maps with impressive speed, and the DNX719VHD uses NAVTEQ's traffic info to ensure that you've got up-to-the-minute data at your command. The receiver provides automatic rerouting around congestion and road closures in major metro areas. And in areas that aren't covered, it uses historical traffic data to calculate the fastest routes. You'll see realistic representations of interchanges on the big screen, so you'll know exactly what to look for as your next turn approaches. Features like lane guidance and junction view help keep you on the right path during tricky maneuvers in unfamiliar territory.

Apps connectivity for iPhone®, Android, and BlackBerry®

With the addition of Kenwood's audio/video cable (not included), you can connect your iPhone to the DNX719VHD and control your Pandora® Internet Radio stations from the receiver's touchscreen, with stations and ratings right at your fingertips. You also get control over your iPhone's Aha Radio app.

Android or BlackBerry users are covered, too. You can enjoy Pandora control through the receiver's Bluetooth features. The DNX719VHD supports the Serial Port Profile (SPP), which means you can use the receiver's interface to control Pandora when your compatible Android or BlackBerry device is linked up.

Bluetooth by Parrot for convenience and safety

If your VW doesn't have factory Bluetooth, the DNX719VHD features Bluetooth connectivity by Parrot, a leader in wireless technology. You can make and take calls without having to touch your compatible phone, so you can keep your hands on the wheel. You'll hear your caller over the car's speakers, while the built-in microphone picks up your voice. You can also stream music from your compatible mobile device to the Kenwood receiver.

Video center

You can watch DVDs on the 6.95" screen while parked, and this receiver will work with your VW factory rear seat entertainment system. You can also use the rear audio/video output to add rear seat screens — then use the dual zone feature to let your passengers watch movies in back while you listen to music up front.

Expand your system

You can hook up a satellite radio tuner (not included) to the receiver and access the wide variety of entertainment, sports, news, and commercial-free music satellite radio provides. You can also connect a rear-view camera, so you can see what's behind you as you back out of a tight parking space. If you're looking to add amps and subs, you can take advantage of three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs available, including a dedicated subwoofer output with low-pass filter and level control.

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 the Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod or iPhone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

The screen has a resolution of 800 (H) x 480 (V) x RGB with 1,152,000 total pixels. This unit has touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics, making menu navigation easy. You can scroll screen lists by simply flicking the screen up/down, or scroll screen pages by simply flicking the screen right/left.

    • Aspect Ratio: You can change the aspect ratio for video playback. You can select from Full (16:9), Just (4:3 LB), or Normal (4:3), or Auto (automatically selects to match incoming video signal)
    • Picture Adjustment: You can adjust the unit's display brightness, contrast, color, tint, sharpness, and black level to suit your viewing needs during video playback.
    • Custom Background Images: You can download a still image (800 x 600) for use as the unit's background from a connected USB thumbdrive.
    • Custom Top Menu: The Top Menu screen (main menu) features two rows of source & settings icons. The top row has 3 large icons which can be accessed directly, while the bottom row has 12 smaller icons which have to be scrolled through. You can customize the Top Menu by selecting your three favorite source/settings icons as the top 3 icons.

    Start Up Time: The Kenwood DNX719VHD has a start up time of approximately 29.5 seconds from Off to the "Warning" screen.

    Onboard Navigation

    Garmin/NAVTEQ Navigation: With built-in Garmin navigation software and NAVTEQ map data (CN North America NT 2012), the Kenwood DNX719VHD features on-screen maps of the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico - which includes over 6 million Points of Interest. You can follow calculated on-screen routes to your destination using the head unit's built-in navigation software. As you travel, the DNX719VHD's navigation system guides you to your destination with audible & visual guidance.

    Note: Car navigation maps are frequently updated. While this database was judged to be as accurate as possible at the time of its release, a map database can never be 100% accurate. Road information that is maintained in the map databases, such as turn restrictions or road names may change over time.

    Software/Map Data Updates: When the preloaded maps are considered out of date, the DNX719VHD will provide periodic notification at startup. Garmin software and map updates can be downloaded as required, via microSD memory card. To find a software or map update, please go to www.garmin.com/kenwood.

    Note: The unit's microSD-card slot is located on the front-panel hidden behind a flip-out cover (labeled MicroSD). The microSD-card slot is only used for software and map updates. It cannot be used for playback of media files from an microSD memory card.

    GPS Receiver/Antenna: The Kenwood DNX719VHD employs a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that is forgiving of less than optimal antenna placement, giving you additional placement options. The included GPS antenna features a magnetic base and an attached 16.5' cable terminated by a proprietary plug which connects to GPS-ANT input on the back of the head unit. The unit also comes supplied with a self-adhesive magnetic base if you are having trouble finding a flat metal surface to mount the antenna. The GPS antenna can be mounted inside the vehicle (on the dash) or outside the vehicle (on the roof or trunk). The GPS antenna measures 1.3125" (w) x 0.5625" (h) x 1.4375" (d). The self-adhesive magnetic base measure 2.0625" (w) x 2.0625" (d).

    • Update Rate: 1/second, continuous
    • Position Accuracy: <6 meters, typical
    Note: The first time you turn on this unit, you must wait while the system acquires satellite signals for the first time. This process could take up to several minutes. Make sure your vehicle is outdoors in an open area away from tall building and trees for fastest acquisition. After the system acquires satellites for the first time, it will acquire satellites quickly each time thereafter.

    On-Screen Map: As you travel, the DNX719VHD guides you to your destination with voice prompts, arrows on the map, and directions at the top of the map. The upper-left corner indicates the distance to your next maneuver, If you depart from the original route, the navigation system recalculates the route and provides new directions. Your route is marked with a magenta line, while your vehicle is marked by a red arrow on the screen, and checkered flag marks your destination. You can adjust the following map settings:

    • Map Detail: You can adjust the amount of detail shown on the map screen. More detail may cause the map to be slower.
    • 2D/3D Map View: You can changes the perspective of the map from 2D North-Up (displays the map in 2 dimensions with North at the top), 2D Track-Up (displays the map in 2 dimensions with your direction of travel at the top of the screen), 3D Track-Up (displays the map in 3 dimensions with your direction of travel at the top of screen).
    • Vehicle Type: You can change the icon (arrow, car, jeep, RV) used to display your position on the map.
    • Color Mode: Select between Day (for a bright background), Night (for a black background) or Auto (to automatically switch between the two) for the on-screen map.

    Text-To-Speech Voice Prompts: The unit's text-to-speech voices "read and speak" the same words that are displayed on the unit's screens. The voices have an extensive vocabulary and they pronounce the street names as you approach turns. Voice prompts can heard from both of your front speakers, only the left front speaker, or only the right front speaker. You can independently adjust the volume (0-35) of the voice prompts without affecting the main volume. The unit only offers English voice prompts in a male or female voice.

    Note: You can continue to listen to your music source while navigating. The DNX719VHD will mute the music source, when there is a text-to-speech voice prompt. Once the voice prompt has ended, your music volume will automatically raise to previous setting.

    Lane Assist with Photo Real Junction View: The Lane Assist function guides you to the appropriate lane you should be in for upcoming junctions and interchanges, while Photo Real Junction View displays a realistic view of upcoming road details facilitating a safer navigation experience.

    NAVTEQ Traffic: NAVTEQ Traffic receives traffic information that is broadcast over the FM Radio Data System. The free FM TMC subscription activates automatically after the navigation system acquires satellite signals while receiving traffic signals from the service provider. NAVTEQ Traffic provides real-time traffic data for over 90 major cities in North America, including the United States and Canada. If traffic is congested up ahead or there is a road closure, the navigation system will automatically re-navigate the route to show you how to get to your destination, quickly and easily. Alternatively, in manual mode, the system will add delay time to your trip so you can decide to avoid or continue on your current route. When the unit is receiving traffic information, a traffic icon appears in the upper-left corner of the Map page. The traffic icon changes color to indicate the severity of traffic conditions on your route or on the road you are currently traveling.

    Color Description Meaning
    Green Low severity Traffic is flowing normally
    Yellow Medium severity Traffic slightly congested
    Red High Severity Traffic is heavily congested or stopped
    Gray No data Traffic data has not updated
    Note: NAVTEQ includes a lifetime service subscription. Because NAVTEQ traffic is subsidized by unobtrusive pop-up advertising there is no subscription fees.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The Kenwood DNX719VHD utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Kenwood DNX719VHD is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power output specs for the DNX719VHD are as follows:

    • Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
    • Maximum Output Power: 50 watts x 4 channels

    6ch/4V Preamp Outputs: The DNX719VHD features front, rear and subwoofer 4.0-volt preamp outputs. The front and rear speaker preamp outputs are balance and fade adjustable. The subwoofer preamp output is non-fading. The front, rear, and subwoofer preamp outputs are fixed to the rear chassis of the head unit.

    Front & Rear High-Pass Filter: The DNX719VHD features an independent High-Pass Crossover for the front & rear channels when your front & rear speakers are connected by the unit's speaker-outputs or preamp-outputs. You can adjust the high-pass crossover from 'Through' (off), 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 150, 180, or 220 Hz. The "Through" selection is a full-range setting. This feature is very helpful when you have smaller-type speakers in the front and larger-type speakers installed in the rear of the vehicle.

    Subwoofer Controls: The Kenwood DNX719VHD offers the following subwoofer controls, when you have the unit's subwoofer preamp output activated.

    • Low Pass Filter: The receiver features a built-in Low Pass Filter control for the preamp-output, when the output is set to Subwoofer. You can select from 50, 60, 80, Hz, 100 Hz, 120 Hz, or 'Through' (off).
    • Subwoofer Phase: You can adjust the phase of the subwoofer output between 180-degrees (Reverse) or 0-degrees (Normal).
    • Subwoofer Level: Once the Subwoofer preamp output is activated, you can independently control the subwoofer preamp output level (-50 to +10) from the navigation receiver.

    Speaker Type Setting: This feature tailors the DNX719VHD according to the type of front speakers in your vehicle. You may select Standard (for speakers with a general diameter), Narrow (for speakers with a small diameter), Middle (for speakers with a medium diameter), or Wide (for speakers with a large diameter).

    Preset EQ: Eight EQ curves are preset into memory, allowing you to recall the best preset EQ curve for different types of music. Each preset has its own level settings for bass (100Hz), midrange (1kHz), and treble (10kHz). You can choose from the following preset EQ curves - Rock, Pops, Easy, Top 40, Jazz, Natural, Flat, and User.

    EQ Pro: The DNX719VHD features independent Bass, Treble, and Midrange control when the Preset EQ is in User mode. EQ Pro allows you to adjust the following settings for the Bass, Treble and Mid frequency levels.

    EQ Pro
    Center Frequency Q-Factor Bass Extension Level
    Bass 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 100, 120, or 150 Hz 1.00, 1.25, 1.50, or 2.00 On/Off -8 to +8
    Midrange 0.5k, 1.0k, 1.5k, or 2.0k Hz 1.00 or 2.00 N/A
    Treble 10.0k, 12.5k, 15.0k, or 17.5k Hz N/A N/A

    Loudness: This function enhances low and high frequencies to make the sound clearer lower volumes. There are 3 levels (LV1, LV2, or Off).

    Source Tone Memory: This feature allows you to store System Q bass, middle and treble tone settings for each source (Disc, AM/FM, AV-IN1/2, USB, iPod, Bluetooth Audio, and Pandora).

    Volume Offset: The level of each source may be independently adjusted to prevent radical leaps in output volume when switching from one source to another. The available settings range from -8 to 0 (-8 to +8 for Aux source).

    Dynamic Range: The dynamic range can be adjusted by selecting either Normal, Wide or Dialog. Dialog makes the total sound volume become larger as compared with Wide and Normal, allowing you to listen to the movie's dialogue more clearly. This is effective only on Dolby Digital software.

    Key Beep: The in-dash multimedia head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.

    AV Connection

    Dual A/V Inputs: The unit features two rear-panel 3.5mm AV inputs for connecting external A/V sources. The optional Kenwood AV cable (113CAC3AV, sold separately) provides composite video/stereo RCA audio inputs. You can label each AV Input.

    A/V Output (with Dual Zone): The unit features a set of stereo RCA jacks and a composite video jack to output A/V signals to an optional monitor and headphone system. The unit's A/V output can be set to Disc, Video, iPod, or Off. You can adjust the volume of the 2nd Zone independently from 0 to 35. You can select between a 16:9, 4:3 LB, or 4:3 PS Aspect Ratio for the unit's video output to match your connected monitor. You cannot select iPod as the A/V Output source when you select Pandora as a main source in dual zone function.

    Camera Input: The unit features a composite video input for connecting an optional rear view camera, such as the Kenwood CMOS-210 (113CMOS210, sold separately). The video from this connection can be set to display when switched to this input, or display the rear view camera video automatically when the vehicle is shifted into Reverse gear. The purple/white wire (in 22-pin harness) must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching. Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.5 seconds. You can manually set the touchscreen to display both the navigation map and back-up camera at the same time, when backing up. Audio from your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.

    Remote Control

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input wire (blue/yellow) within the included wiring harness that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    Optional Remote Control: The optional Kenwood KNA-RCDV331 IR wireless remote control (113RCDV331, sold separately) unit is designed to operate this Kenwood multimedia head unit. The wireless remote controller operates off of two supplied "AAA" batteries. The remote operates off of IR transmission so the KNA-RCDV331 must be pointed at the front-panel of the Kenwood head unit within direct line of sight.

    Fantastic OEM Look

    Written By colnago888, White Rock, BC on Monday, November 10, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I wanted to update and refresh the look of my 2006 VW Jetta MKV - although the car is fully loaded, the entertainment and NAV needed much updating. I wanted to get as close to the OEM look without paying the $2000 for the RDS510 and was quite happy with the way this fits on the existing trim kit. Just like any mid-to-high end system, the lighting can match any of the interior lighting in your car. I would strongly recommend this as an upgrade to those wanting to have as close to OEM look and get the NAV (Garmin), Bluetooth and other features.

    Once you have done the wire splicing which can be challenging for those not experienced (however, the Crutchfield Tech team more than compensated for my shortcomings), the rest is really plug-and-play.

    Pros: Garmin NAV system is great as it is one of the industry standards. The fit, feel and look of OEM is one of the reasons I got this unit.

    Cons: I wish JVC/Kenwood allowed full iPhone compatibility - although some compatibility, iPhone 5 and above cannot be used as a "source" much like other manufacturers such as Pioneer which has full compatibility.

    Great!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is my third Kenwood unit. The other two were good, but this one is great. It fits totally flush, it looks like a factory unit, and it performs extremely well. If you have a 2006-2014 VW, and you want a great replacement head unit, I strongly suggest you get this one while they last. Also, spend a little extra dough and get an iDatalink steering wheel control unit, too. You'll be glad you did!

    Pros: Excellent fit and finish. Great performance with music, nav...basically everything. Great, reliable Crutchfield support. Upgradeable through the Kenwood and Garmin sites.

    Cons: A little pricey...but worth it.

    I installed this in my 2009 Volkswagen CC and its absolutely great. The deck looks like it came with the car and the colors blend in with the rest of the car. Everything works perfectly and even the steering wheel controls work, except phone answering etc. which I don't mind at all. Also the display behind the steering wheel only says AUDIO and does not display any information as far as songs etc. Garmin GPS works great and I upgraded it with the new maps and Kenwood gives you the information how to do so. At first the I had trouble syncing my Android phone with the unit, but after software upgrade it is flawless. Instead of running the GPS antenna to the dash or somewhere exposed, I tucked it in behind the stereo and still have good reception and hasn't failed me yet. You can even play songs on pandora or spotify and even switch songs from the steering wheel control. I installed the back up camera and connected it and it works great as well. Overall I would suggest this unit

    Best navigation system I've used so far.

    Written By Hendrick, Huntington,NY on Saturday, March 01, 2014

    This Kenwood unit is superior than the Alpine unit it replaces in terms of user friendly interface, the updatable Garmin navigation, the sound and fitment on my 2011 Jetta. I found lots of things that the Alpine ine-z928hd was lacking in this Kenwood unit. It's cheaper, it has a map that is current and can be updated unlike its predecessor. The sound settings are so easy to adjust a cave man can do it. It has an rotary volume botton makes it easy to lower the volume. The blue tooth works as advertised. The screen is not boring. Now I get a lot of " I love your radio". Overall, it's a great system for the price. I'm very happy with it.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: None

    Perfect

    Written By Wayne, Rocky Point, NY on Friday, February 28, 2014

    Better than OEM features, sound and more...from traffic, to nav to the VW quality fit....this unit is top notch.

    Pros: Big sound, stock look...more features than OEM...looks like a 3 thousand dollar VW unit...but screen is bigger! Flawless operation in any weather, and over time! Believe this unit has been used in UK for some time which helps, no bugs!

    Cons: The Swc's work 90 percent of stock. Most buttons work, volume and track....2 have new functions that aren't really necessary...they toggle things that are just not needed.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Installed in a 2010 VW Passat (without 'dynaudio'). It fits perfectly flush and looks great. Much better looking than the original, and does not look like an aftermarket radio at all. It sounds great with the original speakers, and the navigation system and bluetooth do what they are supposed to do. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars (4.5 stars, really) instead of 5 is because of the iphone connection cord. You cannot use the USB connection, but rather a proprietary cord which is bulky and awkward, and (from what we can tell) renders the USB connection useless. However, when the phone is connected, I love being able to use Pandora and accessing itunes on the receiver.

    Pros: Looks great / custom made for Volkswagens Big and bright screen Accessing itunes and pandora radio on the receiver Garmin navigation system

    Cons: iphone/ipod connection cord

Smooth Volume Return gradually increases the volume to the original level when the ATT button is pressed a second time, eliminating a jarring change in volume. [ Tom  Jun 18, 2014 ]
    ATT is short for attenuate. It is a fancy word for reducing the volume so you can hear or speak. Sort of like a mute only it does not completely turn off the music. [ RICHARD  Jun 15, 2014 ]
    Seth, you will lose that feature. All that will be displayed in the MFD is "Audio. " [ Zach  May 28, 2014 ]
    Yes. I noticed on satellite radio it displays the station, in order to see the music titles you may have to hit the repeat button. I think there is a way to display them all the time, just haven't figured it out. [ RICK  May 24, 2014 ]
    In the beetle, you lose it. It just says "audio." [ MARK  May 24, 2014 ]
    For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Krissy  May 17, 2014 ]  Staff
    I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: You can continue to listen to your music source while navigating. The DNX719VHD will mute the music source, when there is a text-to-speech voice prompt. Once the voice prompt has ended, your music volume will automatically raise to previous setting. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Apr 08, 2014 ]  Staff
    Yes....Music is temporarily muted as directions are given...the level for muting is adjustable so that both music and directions can be heard [ NORMAN  Apr 20, 2014 ]
    Yes, it lowers the music volume when it gives you instructions, you can even split screen the gps/ whatever music or even while using the phone [ Zach  Apr 07, 2014 ]
    Yes you can have the any music playing while the GPS is up. You can even have the music up and GPS guide you also. It's a great replacement for the stock VW unit. [ Darren  Apr 07, 2014 ]
    Yes. The music will lower when the gps tells you directions then it will go back to the same volume. [ KENNETH  Apr 07, 2014 ]
    Absolutely! It will attenuate the music when it's speaking, but will contine once it's completed giving you instructions. [ MICHAEL  Apr 07, 2014 ]
    Yes [ KENNETH  Apr 07, 2014 ]
    The Cable attaches to the usb and 1/8" in jack on the head unit. Once connected to your iPhone/iPod it does send an analog signal over (even iPhone 5). All volume control is at the head unit. The sound is excellent assuming you're starting with good quality music. The cable also allows for skip/pause and library listing from the phone on the screen. It was well worth the $20 for the extra cable. [ BRIAN  Jan 14, 2014 ]
    Enrique, When I purchased the head unit I also purchased the propiatary cable to connect my iPod so I can't verify if just using the regular USB cable has any effect on sound quality. The propiatary USB cable is, as far as I know, only available in the 30 pin configuration. If you're using a new iphone or later generation iPod touch with the lightning connector, you'll need an adapter. However, I have not discovered an adapter that will also charge at the same time. Since I just keep an iPod Classic plugged in, I haven't had any issues. I hope this has been helpful. Take care. [ MICHAEL  Jan 14, 2014 ]
    You will want to contact an Advisor by phone or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Jeff  Jan 09, 2014 ]  Staff

    I don't really use the Bluetooth (other than Phone), but I checked out Pandora and iTunes this afternoon and the Track / Artist information does not show when connected to Bluetooth. The information is shown when using the iPod interface cable. [ LARRY M  Dec 10, 2013 ]
