Video: Voice control and in-dash receivers

Heads up!

Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.

With a smartphone connected, more and more in-dash receivers let you control certain functions just by speaking commands. This lets you keep your eyes on the road while you access certain receiver functions. However, not every voice-control-capable receiver is the same, so we hooked up a few different ones in our lab so we could show you the difference.

Receivers in this video:

Level 1: Kenwood KDC-X998
Level 2: Kenwood Excelon DNN991HD
Level 3: Clarion NX604
