About the Kenwood DDX6704S

A multimedia star

In sports terminology, a “utility player” is one who can do just about anything for the team and do it well. I think of Kenwood's DDX6704S DVD receiver as a “utility” multimedia stereo that you can always count on to handle just about any audio and video needs you have in your vehicle. It includes both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for superior smartphone integration, plus Bluetooth® wireless convenience, as well as Spotify® and Pandora® Internet radio control. Its big 6.8" touchscreen display also gives you access to all your entertainment, along with deep sound-shaping controls to refine your sound. Plus, you can play DVDs, CDs, USB drives, and any portable devices you have connected.

Android Auto

If you're an Android™ user, this receiver is ready for your phone. You'll love how Android Auto integrates the popular platform into the driving experience without distracting you from the job at hand — driving . You'll have easy voice access to Google Maps, weather, music, and apps, not to mention your text messages. And you can make calls, too, of course. Get more info at www.android.com/auto.

Apple CarPlay

CarPlay integrates your iPhone® into the driving experience in a seamless interface when you plug in via USB, putting iPhone content at the driver's fingertips with minimal distraction. That means easy access to your music library, audiobooks, phone, messages, navigation, and many third-party streaming music apps, too. Learn more at www.apple.com/ios/carplay.

Kenwood DDX6704S DVD receiver

The 6.8" touchscreen display gives you access to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

HD Radio

Lots of music options

The DDX6704S lets you enjoy HD Radio™ from participating stations, so you'll hear FM radio that's close to CD quality or AM radio that comes in clear and static-free. And if you're not in an area with HD Radio stations, this Kenwood's sensitive radio tuner will pick up local analog stations like a champ. Using the controls on the receiver, you can access your favorite Pandora®, Spotify®, and other Internet Radio stations from your iPhone or Android. You can also check out the incredibly deep programming offered by satellite radio by adding a SiriusXM tuner. And don't worry, you can still play your CDs and DVDs, along with music stored on your phone or a USB drive — including high-res FLAC music files.

Solid tone controls and expansion options

This receiver also offers an impressive array of sound-sculpting controls, including a 13-band graphic equalizer and digital time alignment. The DDX6704S includes three pairs of hot 4-volt RCA preamp outputs provide an ultra-clean signal when it's time to add amplifiers to your system. This Kenwood plays video content in bright, clear detail when you're parked. When you're on the road, you can entertain your passengers by sending a movie from the receiver to a rear-seat screen. You can also plug in front- and rear-view cameras to play it safe in crowded parking lots. The DDX6704S also includes a direct connection for Kenwood's DRV-N520 Drive Recorder dash cam, which means you get camera control and alerts directly on the receiver's display.

iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras — and add some upgrades

The DDX6704S offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included). The module lets you keep factory features in your Chrysler, Ford, GM, Honda, Fiat, Toyota, or VW vehicle that you'll otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You'll also be able to check out expanded functionality on the Kenwood's screen, including gauges, climate controls, a distance sensor, and tire pressure and temperature monitors. It'll even integrate your stealth K40 radar detector into the stereo's display, so you can see and hear about incoming threats (available soon). With select rear-view cameras, you'll even get parking guidelines that curve with the motion of your steering wheel.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

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.

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 DDX6704S

    Crutchfield customer from Granbury, TX on 4/14/2019

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    This is an awesome unit at a great price. It has all the features I wanted, CD, DVD and Android Auto, plus front and rear camera inputs, Sat radio input, steering wheel control input, etc. I installed it in a motorhome and was a bit worried it would be underpowered. It certainly is not. Bluetooth connectivity and sensitivity is great . Replacing the old radio with this one made the old speakers sound bad so ordered new speakers.

    DISCLAIMER: I did have my head unit replaced, however the issue turned out to be unrelated to the head unit. Great head unit - does EVERYTHING I need, and more. Android Auto works great, however you can NOT use any sort of USB adapter between the head unit and your phone (So, don't plan on having the in dash USB port work for Android Auto) - something about the voltage/signal loss in using an adapter to use the in dash USB ports built into cars. I have found no issues with the head unit - sound is great, all the display is great (UI and the actual screen). The ONLY reason I would not rate it 5 stars is because when I was trying to troubleshoot the USB Issue I note above, I spoke with Kenwood, who said "Yeah, we should have put an inline amp for the USB line driver in that unit" - if you knew/know there is an issue, you should stand behind your product and find a way to rectify it for customers who have spent many hundreds of dollars on the product.

    Very happy with my purchase

    Michael from Middletown, IN on 7/6/2018

    2013 Chrysler 200

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I purchased this unit as an upgrade to the factory radio in my 2013 Chrysler 200. The two main features I wanted were bluetooth, and a backup camera. Both features work perfectly for what I need. The bluetooth sound quality on both ends of a phone call are pretty good, but you can definitely tell that your on a bluetooth call. The backup camera's picture is good as well. I did like that this unit had Android Auto. I haven't had any experience with android auto prior to purchasing this unit so I didn't know what to expect. After using it on a couple of short road trips I wasn't very impressed. It did everything it was suppose to without any problems, I was just expecting more out of it than what I got. So in the future I wouldn't pay extra for a radio just for the Android Auto feature. As for everything else about this unit I couldn't be any happier. The steering wheel controls work flawlessly with the adapter that I purchased, and I highly suggest the ready harness service that crutchfield offers. This is my second stereo install in 2018 and the ready harness probably saved me at least an hour of work per install. The HD tuner helped me find a couple more radio stations in my area. The sound quality is noticeabley better than the factory unit, and I still have the factory speakers for now. I also like that this unit doesn't look too gaudy. It looks like it could almost be factory, hopefully less appealing to a potential thief.

    Pros: Bluetooth, sound quality, appearance

    Cons: Android auto was less that stellar.

    Solid Modern Automotive Media Environment

    Josh from Catawba, VA on 6/29/2018

    2008 Toyota Tacoma

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The DDX6704S is a nice modern mobile tuner with full features and the reliability (it does work out of the box -- consistently) you expect from Kenwood. The FM tuner is quite sensitive, and is equipped to take advantage of the many non-audio services offered on most FM radio stations, including analog text via RDS. The implementation of DTS's HDRadio(c) scheme is also modern and full featured, displaying station logos and album art on those HDRadio(c) stations sending this data. Caching of Emergency Alert System messages that are coded into the HDRadio(c) datastream is also available on this Kenwood, allowing the user to view a log of messages received. AM HD at night is a BLAST! Disc (CD/DVD) playback works very well, but the command interface on the touchscreen is not incredibly intuitive. It took some poking around to find all the command functions one traditionally expects to be immediately available as a hardware button on traditional heads. I had to hunt for the disc eject button. Integration with a phone is straight forward. CarPlay for Apple devices picks up and runs flawlessly, and the resulting display is familiar for the Apple Fan (my wife). Android Auto also launched with success, and the numerous available applications written specifically for this automotive-mobile operation mode of the Android OS are impressive and fun to explore. Single-button access via a hardware key on the display panel is very handy for these two tuner environments. Good buy.

    Pros: Plenty of modern HDRadio features, VERY sensitive FM tuner, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay both well executed, even-keeled audio out of the box with plenty of ways to tweak for each input. Fast boot-up, holds the important settings even through a vehicle battery change.

    Cons: Disc operation commands are not always intuitive. Some audio "sound effect" features make loud audio but greatly detract from the stereo image/soundstage/cleanliness. Display performance in sunlight is not quire as good as later model Kenwood automotive tuners.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Overall a great head unit with plenty of features, some (like the vehicle info and gauge display via obd2) suited better for vehicles newer than my 1995 Trans Am. While it isn't a gps unit, it comes with a gps antenna you need to install for a couple features to function (time sync and vehicle direction display) This was a big improvement over my stock unit and has so many audio/EQ settings, I still haven't perfected it.

    Pros: Great sound, power Plenty of features Ease of general operation Virtually self explanatory installation

    Cons: Lack of information in the manual (but crutchfield has the answers) Annoying safety warning every time you start the car Maybe too many audio/eq options

    Good over all. Best bang for the buck... Everything works as advertised.. Android auto with my LG G6 is unstable but I think it has more to do with the phone. I am trying different usb cables but so far no luck. I read some reviews on the LG G6 with android auto that said it was not compatible with it. But this is not the radio's fault.. its an LG issue...

    Pros: Good sound Easy to install thanks to Crutchfield!!

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I love this head unit! Even though it has a resistive touch screen, it feels responsive and not laggy. I love the multiple connectivity options. For quick trips I just use my phone's bluetooth to play music, but for longer trips I can plug in USB to use CarPlay. Either way, apps such as Pandora and my regular music work great. Another plus is that it looks great in my dash. It's not attention grabbing - it looks factory, not like a flashy piece of aftermarket hardware.

    Pros: Looks like a factory unit Versatile connectivity options for a smartphone and apps Apple CarPlay Plays DVDs and CDs Big screen Myriad options for configuring sound to your vehicle HD Radio

    Cons: Screen can look a bit washed out in bright sunlight

    Works flawlessly with my 2003 Silverado 1500HD w/ 7 speaker Bose, rear seat entertainment, OnStar, and steering wheel controls, using the pac rp5-gm11. Great, full sound, and excellent customizability. Seamless connection via Bluetooth, or using Android Auto via USB. I use Android Auto if I want to use Google Maps or Waze, otherwise I just use the fantastic Spotify mode on this stereo.

    2006 Toyota Tundra

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Receiver works great and was easy to install. I just wish more receivers had external USB ports on the front. If there is a knock on the receiver (and it's probably not a negative), but there are so many different ways to adjust the sound settings, it's a little numbing. I've gone back and forth over the past few weeks continually tweaking based on different music styles. The mounting bracket that was included is pretty bad. Top and bottom have gaps and the sides stick out so it interferes with the left side controls (volume,home, etc.). This is not a Kenwood or Crutchfield issue. Apparently, they don't make good brackets for a 2002 Tundra. I've looked around and they are all the same. Easy to see display, even in sun wearing sunglasses.

    Pros: Looks great, easy install

    Cons: none really. No good mounting bracket for 2002 Tundra.

    Love this radio! This is my second Kenwood unit and first double din touch screen. While some of the reviews refer to the fact that there are no manual station/volume controls, it is still a pretty easy unit to use. The features far outweigh any negatives on this unit. It was very easy to install in my 2010 Toyota Tundra with the harness and install kit that came with the unit. Kudos to Crutchfield for providing a one stop shop for everything I needed to put this unit in.

    Pros: Great app comparability. Bluetooth connectivity a breeze. Great equalizer options. Makes my stock speakers sound great!

    Cons: None really to find.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Seriously complex to operate! Crutchfield was very helpful, I'll use them in the future. I guess a radio with this much functionality has to be complex, the manual is over 100 pages. Once installed (which was easy) the radio did all it advertised perfectly. I wasn't sure which radio to buy for my RV, but after a call to Crutchfield all my questions were answered and we chose the right radio for my application and budget.

    Pros: Very versatile, great assistance from Crutchfield.

    Cons: Basic operation is very intuitive, other operations, not so much. Keep the manual handy.

    I bought this unit to replace a Pioneer AVIC N-1 in my Ford van based RV. I didn't want ALL the functions of the AVIC, so the Kenwood gave me what I wanted for a reasonable price. With the installation kit and some minor modifications to the double DIN slot in my dash, it installed with minimal hassle and worked without any glitches. If it had a better "operating system" to organize, categorize, identify, and play the music files I converted from my CD collection and ancient iPod and saved on a high capacity USB flash drive, I'd give it 5 stars. It's a bit tedious to search for the desired tracks amongst the hundreds of files now on the "drive".

    Great unit and sound

    Great unit to add bluetooth calling to your vehicle. Installation was straight-forward. Programming takes some time getting used to but overall is pretty simple. Finding some of the sub menus takes some time but once you know where they are hiding it's a breeze.

    Pros: Amazing screen and great features.

    Cons: The only con is if you don't have steering wheel controls or the optional remote, you'll find it tedious to change between your preset channels. With no seek buttons on the unit you have to know your preset number or expand the preset list from the right side of the unit and then scroll through to select your channel. Setting the unit to "Seek2" and using steering wheel controls removes this "con".

    Awesome unit, easy to set up. Only issue is that when using the hands free calling on Apple-CarPlay people can't hear me unless they have an apple phone, Crutchfield Tech support advised me that I have to switch to Bluetooth if I want to ensure all can hear me. He also said there should be an update at some point to resolve this but who knows. Pretty inconvenient to unplug the phone phone from USB and hook up Bluetooth when a call is coming in.

    Pros: User interface, easy set up, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay

    Cons: Hands free calling is wish-washy

    I received my DDH6704S and installed it along with the xm radio module about a month ago. The things I was looking forward to were -Sirius XM -Pandora (apple carplay) -Use of Siri (apple cp) -Navigation (apple cp) Sirius XM works very well, I'm very happy with it. Apple carplay... Not so much. Quite often the radio does not connect with my phone properly. Pandora hangs, while the carplay screen is activated when I go to the app on my phone. At the same time none of the controls work on the display of the unit. Yesterday (which is what prompted this review) Pandora was playing, my phone was connected, but the receiver wasn't connecting to the phone. Siri is the same. She pipes up with the beep, I say a command, she thinks for about 5 second then nothing. I've tried: making sure the phone is plugged in before starting the truck, restarting the phone, turning off and on the receiver, unplugging and plugging the phone, a new cable, closing and restarting carplay apps. It's just really hit and miss. Lastly, on the negative side, I would have expected that such a large display would show the full name, artist, and album name of songs both on HD and XM. but all three are cut short. (eg: "theory of dea.." On the positive side you have options and features galore, the sound manipulation is unbelievable, learning curve i

    Pros: Sound quality, sound manipulation (equalizer, bass controls, optimization to cab size, etc), good learning curve, huge amount of features

    Cons: Phone connectivity is dodgy, display of music information on screen could be a lot better

    I recently purchased the Kenwood DDX6704S after proper research, this unit was the best for my application. My Crutchfield advisor Rocky was a huge resource, his knowledge, and expertise was on target. My 2006 Chevrolet truck is my daily driver and used to tow our RV. Awesome truck but no interface to my electronic devices. One great feature is Apple Car Play! Once my phone is plugged in, it's truly hands-free. Phone calls, Siri commands, my music, Pandora, and hearing incoming text messages. No more fumbling for my phone, what a great interface! With the addition of the rear camera located just above my tow hitch, hooking up to the trailer is a breeze every time. Not to mention backing into parking spots too. The installation went very well with Crutchfield's recommended modules for my steering wheels controls and chime interface. A few calls to their tech support during the install was very helpful. Best advice, read all instructions, plan for the event, Take Your Time, solder all connections, use shrink tube vs. tape, and tie up the new harness to keep it neat and secure.

    Pros: Apple Car Play and great sound! Having two camera inputs is perfect! one for back up and the other on the back of my RV.

    Cons: None so far!

    Kenwood for old Airstream motorhome

    Searched the interweb for hours & hours to figure out what unit to buy for my 1980 vintage RV. Way to may possibilities and felt I was going to buy more than I needed. I finally called Crutchfield and Colt answered. (Sweet and real live human being!) With a short description of what I was looking for Colt, made a couple recommendations and we settled on the Kenwood as the best option. I installed it last weekend and powered it up, connected my smart phone and BAM- Music and phone immediately. Took 3 hour trip- awesome!

    Pros: Feature rich stereo with easy to read instructions. Size fit well in opening. Easy installation, easy blue tooth pairing All needed harnessing is included. Functioned perfectly as I expected. I am also feeling good that I have the Crutchfield company behind me if I have any questions or issues.

    Cons: No Cons from my vantage. Product works great.

    Between the unit, the dash kit and the pre-wired harnesses this install was super easy, it looks like a factory option, and I get more information from my truck than I did before! The last time I tried installing a car stereo it was in my 1978 Oldsmobile, and identifying all those wires left nightmares for decades. Well no more, the Crutchfield harness is literally plug and play. Maestro was easy to program and hats off to Ford as well for making an easy to work with dash.

    Pros: Easy install, advanced features

    Cons: None for me

    Great Receiver. I loved it. sounds much better on my factory speakers. Crutchfield kit came with all the necessary wires. I opted for the wiring service. Saved tons of time and effort. It was pretty much plug and play.

    Cons: Bluetooth restrictions like only two phones allowed to pair.

    Pros: The layout and menus work well. I found almost all of the settings and features without referring to the manual

    My new Kenwood unit is so much better than the stock unit (Which had nav and all the bells) that I can't even compare them. Couple that with the fact that Crutchfield bundled in a rear view camera and that makes this quite a deal. The interface is much more pleasing, and works pretty well. The only issue I have had is that sometimes the carplay comes up blank, but I suspect that has more to do with my old IPhone than the receiver.

    Pros: Touch screen is much more responsive. EQ has more bands of control. Carplay has been great, no more stock nav that is behind on the roads!

    Cons: Time to install - With the Maestro it takes a while, be patient. Somewhat busy interface.

    Android Auto & Apple CarPlay

    Android Auto: The Kenwood DDX6704S DVD receiver supports the Android Auto app for Android smartphones running OS Lollipop (5.0 or newer). Your compatible Android smartphone must be connected to the Kenwood receiver's USB port via the USB cable that came with your smartphone, plus be paired via Bluetooth. Android Auto extends the Android platform into your car in a way that's purpose-built for driving and automatically brings you useful information and organizes it into simple on-screen "card-style" pop-ups that appear just when they're needed. It's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road ahead. Features of Android Auto include:

    • Google Assistant: The Kenwood receiver enhances your Android Auto experience even more by incorporating Google Assistant using the head unit's external microphone and your car speakers for voice command and text-to-speech, which makes using Android Auto and all of its integrated applications fast, easy, and safe. You will need to press the "mic" button or say "OK Google" to activate the Google Assistant. Use the Google Assistant to make a call, send a message, reply to a message, get driving directions, or listen to music.
    • Google & Waze Maps: Use Google Maps to get where you're going with on-screen maps, voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance, and more. Select your destination by using the head unit's touchscreen or just say where you want to go through the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology. You can even listen to music from your Android Auto device or other connected source device while using Google Maps. If you prefer, you can switch over to a simpler version of the community-based Waze navigation app (version 4.27 or higher).
    • Phone & SMS: With Android Auto you get access to your contacts and messages through the Kenwood receiver while keeping your eyes on the road. Use the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology to make a phone call, or have your text-messages read aloud to you while you concentrate on the road ahead; you can even reply to texts via voice command.
    • Music: Access your Android smartphone's music library through the Kenwood receiver via Google Play Music. You'll be able to browse music like you do on your smartphone with song/artist information display and album art. Use the receiver's touchscreen to select songs or just say what song you want to listen to through the head unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology. You also get access to online music and radio stations from Amazon Music, Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, Slacker Radio, & Tune-In. Music apps include song and station browsing, plus song/artist information and album art or station logo.

    Notes:

    • Android smartphones with a USB Type-C connector (including the Pixel) may not function without appropriate USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Android Auto is being used with a connected Android smartphone.
    • Use a USB cable that is under 6' long and avoid using any extension cable other than the one supplied.
    • If you do need an additional USB extension cable, use Kenwood's CA-U1EX USB extension cable (113CAU1EX, sold separately). Any other USB extension cable can cause Android Auto to malfunction
    • Click here to learn more About Android Auto and to see what phones are compatible.

    Apple CarPlay Compatible: Apple CarPlay is the smarter, safer in-vehicle interface to operate your iPhone (iOS 7.1+) with Lightning-connector. Your iPhone must be connected to the Kenwood DDX6704S receiver via the Lightning-cable that came with your Apple device or Kenwood's Lightning connector-to-USB cable (113KCIP103 sold separately). CarPlay features Siri voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. It also works with the Kenwood receiver's touchscreen controls. Use CarPlay to get directions, make phone calls, listen to voice mail, send/ receive messages and select music in a way that keeps you focused on the road ahead.

    • Maps: The power and simplicity of Apple Maps comes to your dashboard; complete with turn-by-turn direction, traffic conditions, and estimated travel time. You can enter a new destination or choose a favorite or recent destination using the head unit's touchscreen or by simply asking Siri. CarPlay can also predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars.
    • Phone & Messages: You'll be able to make calls, return missed calls, and listen to voicemails through the Kenwood receiver. Siri can also help you do all these things. In addition, Siri can send, read, and reply to your text messages for you; so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving.
    • Music Library: Access your artists, song, playlists, and iTunes Radio on your iPhone using the Kenwood receiver's touchscreen. Or, just tell Siri what you'd like to listen to. The head unit's touchscreen will display song/artist information, as well as album art in the background.
    • Apps: CarPlay also supports additional audio apps that you've downloaded to your iPhone for enjoying music, radio, sports, news, podcasts, & audiobooks. Control them from the head unit's touchscreen just like you would from your iPhone. Current supported apps include (fees may apply):

    Notes:

    • Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Apple CarPlay is being used with a connected iPhone.
    • If you need an additional USB extension cable, use Kenwood's CA-U1EX USB extension cable (113CAU1EX, sold separately). Any other USB extension cable can cause CarPlay to malfunction.

    iPod/iPhone Music Playback Only: If you don't desire Apple CarPlay, you can also connect your Lightning-connector Apple iPod/iPhone to the DDX6704S for music playback & control only using Kenwood's Lightning connector-to-USB cable (113KCIP103 sold separately) or the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device. The receiver supports playback of stored music and music apps, along with control and charging, plus song/artist information and album art.

    • Head Unit Control: The Kenwood head unit allows you to navigation your iPod/iPhone's music library from its front-panel & touchscreen controls. The head unit offers unique search features like Category Search & Link Search, plus offers basic playback functions like Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, Previous/Next Track and Repeat/Random of your connected iPod/iPhone. You'll also still be able to control most connected Apple devices from its own touchscreen while connected via USB.
      • Category Search: Category Search allows you to navigate your iPod/iPhone's music library by Playlist, Artists, Album, Song, Genre, Song, Podcast, Audiobook, or Radio. You can then search each of these categories using the head unit's touchscreen slider function (categories will be listed in alphabetical order).
      • Link Search: The head unit offers Link Search, which allows you to play songs related to the currently playing song. Link Search lets the head unit create an album list of the currently playing artist, a song list of the currently playing album, a artist list of the currently playing genre, or a album list of currently playing composer.
    • Song/Artist Info & Album Art: The DDX6704S will display your iPod/iPhone's stored music information including Track number, Elapsed playing time, Song/Album title, Artist name, and Album art. The unit will also display song/artist info and album art from select music apps.
    • Battery Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1.5A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. If your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.

The clear resistive touchscreen LCD provides a high contrast ratio, crystal clear display, and vivid text. The LCD touchscreen has a resolution of 800 (H) x 480 (V) x RGB with 1,152,000 total pixels. Touchscreen operations include tap, touch & hold, flick left or right, and swipe up or down. Electronic angle settings adjust the display for best off axis viewing (actual screen does not move).

    • Custom Home Screen & Shortcuts: You can customize the head unit's Home Screen by rearranging the icons and moving the icons of the seven most sources you use most to this screen. Three programmable shortcut source keys offer a quick jump to your favorite sources
    • Background Color & Images: You can choose between nine preset background colors - Blue, Purple, Sky Blue, Yellow, Green, Amber, Red, Pink, White. You can also choose to link the displays color with the unit's front-panel variable color illumination that you set. In addition, there are six preset background images or you can download your own still image (800 x 600) for use as the unit's background from a connected USB thumbdrive.
    • Picture Adjustments: You can adjust the LCD touchscreen's backlight, contrast, black level, brightness, and color.
    Note: To prevent the display of video while the vehicle is in motion, the light green wire (within harness) must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. You cannot view video unless your vehicle's parking brake is engaged. If you attempt to view video without the parking brake engaged, the unit's LCD touchscreen will simply display a blue screen and "Parking Off". While your vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view all of the head unit's menu screens/settings, source information, metadata, and album artwork; as well as CarPlay & Android Auto.

    Front-Panel Controls w/ Variable Color Illumination: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons along the left edge of the screen. You can adjust the head unit's button illumination, as well as display background color from the following preset colors - Blue, Purple, Sky Blue, Yellow, Green, Amber, Red, Pink, White or Scan (Scans through all preset colors). You can also select a custom "User" color that is adjusted between Red, Green, and Blue (values range: 0-31).

    Dimmer: The dimmer function will dim the head unit's display & front-panel illumination automatically when your vehicle's light switch is turned On, if you have the unit's orange/white "Illumination" wire connected to your vehicle's headlamp circuit. You can also choose to dim the display manually. The Kenwood logo and eject button remain the same brightness.

    Clock & Date: The DVD receiver offers a 12-hour clock & day/month/year display. The clock is visible from any source or menu screen. With your vehicle's key in the accessory or start position, the head unit will continue to display the LCD background image, clock, and button illumination during "Standby" mode. Pressing and holding the Power/Home button turns the unit off completely.

    Remote Control: The Kenwood DDX6704S offers compatibility with factory steering wheel controls (adapter sold separately) and is compatible with Kenwood's IR wireless remote control (sold separately) for added convenience.

    • Steering Wheel Controls: The head unit features a factory 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).
    • Optional Remote Control: The optional Kenwood KNA-RCDV331 IR wireless remote control (113RCDV331, sold separately) unit is designed to operate this Kenwood DVD 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.

    My stock ACM started having issues, which are apparently well known to Ford Motor Co., but no recall was ever issued(thanks a lot Ford!). Since I am out of the warranty period on my Focus ST, the cost to purchase a new ACM and install was $850!! No way was I paying that for a stock head unit. The Kenwood DDX6704s seemed like the perfect option. CD/DVD capability, HD RADIO, bluetooth, iDatalink, and Apple CarPlay were all options I was looking for. [ That Guy  May 27, 2018 ]

    It worked with mine. I did not, however, integrate with my existing hands free microphone.
    [ Jim  May 09, 2018 ]
    A
    More than likely you will need the a harness to adapt your factory wiring to an rca cable that will plug in. Then there is a setting on the headunit that talks about backup camera interupt which you will need to check to get it working automatically. So short answer, it should with the appropriate harness.
    [ Travis  May 08, 2018 ]
    A
    Yes but depends all on the harness you purchase not the deck. I install a after market front camera and direct wired it and it works awesome!!! If you have a newer vehicle get the maestro system
