Its a remote

Written by: Jeff from Sunbury, GA on February 27, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased to use with newly installed Kenwood DNX892 Its a large remote for a car, but the size is good. Easy to hold on to and wont fall between the seat and center console. There are many buttons of similar shape making identifying what you're pressing without looking at it. Test is very small also making it very hard to operate while driving.

Pros: Most common functions of the radio are included. Controls the radio as a remote should. Size, although it is large it turns out to be perfect size.

Cons: Had to purchase separately, you would think it would come with the head unit.

Nice little remote

Written by: Occidentalist from New Jersey on January 5, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this little remote to work with my Kenwood DDX373BT. Unboxed it, put the batteries in (which are included), and it worked instantly with my receiver. It will be great to be able to control the receiver while driving without having to look at it.

Pros: Works right out of the box. Batteries included. perfect size.

Cons: Wish some of the more used buttons (volume, etc.) were more prominent.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This remote is a handy addition to a fine entertainment system. It is fairly complex, but the buttons you need the most are easy to find.

Pros: Great price for a needed item.

Cons: Should really be included in the original purchase. Multiple buttons, quite complex.

Full Featured, Not Ergonomic. Not suited for audio navigation.

Written by: mechjal from Temecula, California on April 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this mainly to be able to navigate audio (song & folder skip) without taking my eyes off the road. My receiver is mounted low on the dash and it is difficult; not to mention dangerous, to utilize the touch screen while driving. The photo depicted a large round navigation button with up, down, left, & right. I thought this would be ideal for navigating music folders and tracks. When "Audio" mode is selected via the sliding switch, the large button is disabled. Track & folder selection can only be navigated with the four small buttons located over the number blue number buttons. It is near impossible to situate your fingers over these small buttons without looking down at the remote. It is very hard to distinguish these small buttons from the multitude that is on this remote. It did not resolve my problem of taking my eyes off the road. I would not have bought this if I had known the large round navigation button could not be used for music. I ended up filing a large notch on the remote next to the audio navigation buttons so that I could find them without looking down at the remote. I've had more basic remotes that were easier to use by feel alone than this one. It's not worth the purchase if you're going to use it for audio navigation.

Pros: Full featured. Compatible with many receivers.

Cons: Large & bulky. Poor ergonomics. Difficult to use by feel.

Perfect addition.

A Little Excessive

Written by: Raymond from Montana on March 25, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This remote is a little difficult to use because there are so many controls on it. I've had Alpine remotes that had some basic controls like volume, channel, and source, and preferred them much more to this one. It tries to do too many things. The buttons are kind of on the small size and can be a little hard to find.

Pros: Looks very nice, fits well in my hand, buttons have a good feel.

Cons: Tries to do to many things for a car stereo remote. Buttons are too small.

Does what it should

Written by: /\/\\/\/ from NJ on September 22, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've probably used only a fraction of the functions on this remote so far but it responds and reacts as it should. I actually miss the smaller remotes of the past but I suppose with more complex receivers, bigger remotes are just going to be the norm. At any rate, just like the Kenwood receiver I bought it for, the remote performs flawlessly!

Pros: functional and dependable

Cons: on the large side and the layout is not that intuitive

A must Have!! Why stretch out of your comfort zone? stay relaxed in your seat and simply use your remote for all your functioning. This is why I will always buy this accessory. Great purchase from the Crutchfield Team. I ordered, was sent to me quickly and part is quality.

Pros: controls are done from remote making it easy those to control the movie/ radio/ itunes from the back seat of the vehicle.

Cons: You dont have a complaint about your tv remote at home do you? No, there is no cons to remote control

I got the kenwood ddx 719 stereo last Sunday. I really like this head unit, but I was having problems controlling volume and other things while driving. I just got the remote, and I've been trying it out. It works good. It should be a lot easier to listen to music, etc., while driving.

Pros: convenient

Cons: None.

  • Audio: The Audio mode of the remote controller allows you to operate functions of your compatible Kenwood multimedia headunit such as Source switching, Volume, Dual Zone, AM/FM tuning and iPod/USB playback.
  • DVD: The DVD mode of the remote controller allows you to operate functions such as CD/DVD playback and file/track/folder searches.
  • TV: TV mode allows you to operate TV band and Channel selection of a compatible Kenwood TV tuner.
  • Navigation: Navigation mode allows you to operate either your Kenwood's built-in navigation receiver or compatible Kenwood external navigation unit.

Numeric Keypad: The IR remote features a numeric keypad (0-9) which allows you to directly access tracks & chapters on a disc, or directly tune in a radio station. The numeric keypad also lets you enter a phone number during Bluetooth hands-free phone operation.
