About the Kenwood KNA-DV2100

Expert, turn-by-turn guidance gets you where you want to go, safely. And with Kenwood's KNA-DV2100 mobile navigation system, you'll be able to cruise without the hassle of conventional maps and atlases!

Expert, turn-by-turn guidance gets you where you want to go, safely. And with Kenwood's KNA-DV2100 mobile navigation system, you'll be able to cruise without the hassle of conventional maps and atlases!

The KNA-DV2100 consists of a navigation computer, a Global Positioning System (GPS) antenna, a DVD-ROM map disc of the United States and Canada, and an amplified speaker. The system gets its information through GPS satellite communication, an internal gyroscope, and a connection to the speedometer.

To navigate, put the DVD-ROM map disc into the drive, enter your destination, and follow the voice and visual directions given (the GPS system plots your position when you turn the system on). Note: The KNA-DV2100 is controlled by touch-screen operation function on a compatible Kenwood monitor (LZ-800W) or DVD receiver (KVT-911DVD) — no remote control is included.

Destination options include cities, streets, intersections, addresses (you can save up to 100), or points of interest. You can also program up to five "intermediate destinations" (areas you'd like to go through on your way to your final destination) per trip. Route criteria are selectable, such as minimizing time, minimizing distance, areas to avoid, and so on.

You can preview an automated simulation of the route before you travel. As you drive, voice guidance gives you directions as you approach turning points, way points, or destinations. As you approach a junction, an enlarged diagram of the junction appears on a split screen for easy navigation. In the event of a wrong turn, the system alerts you and recalculates the route immediately. The built-in trip computer estimates remaining travel time and time of arrival, plus your average speed and elapsed distance.

Note: This unit will not play DVD movies. It will only read DVD-ROM map discs.

Product Research


Disc Compatibility: The KNA-DV2100 is compatible with DVD-ROM navigation map discs only and cannot play standard video DVDs.

Touchscreen Control: The KNA-DV2100 was designed to be used along with any Kenwood mobile television that has touchscreen control, including the LZ-800W and LZ-700W monitors, the KVT-910DVD and KVT-911DVD in-dash television/DVD-CD receivers, and the P907 in-dash television/CD receiver. The KNA-DV2100's touchscreen menus operate identically on all compatible monitors. With the touchscreen interface, all controls appear as icons on the screen; you simply touch the one you want and the system responds, allowing you to concentrate on driving. Note: To use this navigation system, you must purchase one of the optional touchscreen monitors.

DVD Navigation Map: The supplied DVD-ROM has mapping of the entire North American sub-continent. The  navigation system incorporates a proprietary interface that allows it to incorporate mapping data from two different companies: Navtech and Geographic Data Technologies. Using data from these two companies allows for mapping of virtually every major and secondary road in the United States and Canada.

Map Matching: Map Matching combines the vehicle position data provided by the GPS satellites, information from the road network stored on the DVD-ROM, information from the gyroscope and speed sensors with dead reckoning. (Dead reckoning uses the known course and distance traveled from the last previously known position to help determine the vehicle's current position.) Map Matching receives updated GPS information every second, and updated DVD map information every 1/2 second, ensuring that the vehicle's location is accurately displayed.

Destination Input: The Destination Entry Menu gives you many different ways to choose your destination:

  • Address: you can input your destination's address by street and city
  • Memory Point: you can select a destination from any one of 100 addresses that you have stored in memory
  • Home: you can store one home location. This allows you to always find your route home from your current location, just by selecting the home icon as your destination.
  • Point of Interest: you can select a destination from a database of 750,000 locations. You can select by name or category.
  • Previous Destination: you can choose from one of your 20 most recent destinations
  • Select from Map: you can find a location on the map that was last displayed and make it your destination
  • Freeway Entrance/Exit: you can find the name of a freeway entrance or exit and make it your destination
  • Intersection: you can enter the intersection of two streets and make it your destination

Route Guidance: While driving along during route guidance, the directions for the next junction where you have to turn are shown as a Turn Arrow or Turn List. Before a fork in the road, an enlarged diagram of the junction automatically appears on a second screen, making route guidance even clearer. During route guidance, voice guidance will inform you of distances and turning directions as you approach turning points, way points, or your destination.

Route Options: During route guidance to your destination, you can change the route options, stop, or check the route. You can select from the following route options:

  • Detour: if you have to detour off of the calculated route, you can specify the length of the detour and the navigation system will calculate an alternate route
  • Route Preferences: the navigation system will calculate a route according to the conditions you set. You can minimize time/distance, use major roads, use toll roads, and use ferries.
  • Display Whole Route: this function allows you to display the entire route once the destination is set and the guidance route is shown. You can also display a map of the area around the destination and a list of turns along your route.

Checking the Route by a Simulation Run: The navigation system can show you an automated simulation of the calculated route before you begin traveling.

Navigation Setup: You can alter the map display conditions, the route guidance conditions, and show the system information:

  • Average Speed Settings: you can display a more accurate estimation of the time required by setting the predicted average driving speed on each category of road
  • Quick Point of Interest Selection: this function allows you to set the categories that are displayed when the Point of Interest menu is selected
  • Restore System Defaults: this function replaces all the settings in the navigation system with the initial default settings
  • Vehicle Signal: allows you to check the condition of all the sensors and input signals that are connected to the navigation system
  • Calibration: this function allows you to correct any error in the position or direction of your vehicle display
  • 2D/3D View: allows you to switch between a 2D and 3D display screen. You can also change the viewing angle of the 3D display.

Guidance Options: This allows you to set the route guidance display and method:

  • Split Screen: splits the Current Position screen to include either the Arrow or Turn List screens
  • Arrow (Split Screen): indicates the direction of the next turn with an arrow on the split screen
  • Turn List (Split Screen): shows a list of upcoming turns on the split screen
  • Full Screen: shows the full Current Position screen and superimposes a mini-arrow that indicates the distance until the next guidance command
  • Time to Destination: you can have the time remaining until you reach your destination displayed on the screen or hidden
  • Audio Mute: can be used with the cellular phone mute function of the KVT-911DVD or KVT-910DVD to mute the sound of the car audio system during voice guidance commands, allowing you to hear them clearly

Stored Locations: You can store, edit, or delete any of the following stored locations:

  • Memory Points: you can designate up to 100 addresses or locations as Memory Points, which stores their location here and puts a marker on the map for each one
  • Home: allows you to store your home address so it can be used as a destination
  • Destination and Way Points: you can store up to 5 Way Points for the trip, which are stops you wish to make along the route. The navigation system will guide you to each Way Point in the order that they are entered, and will then guide you from the last Way Point to your destination.
  • Previous Destinations: the 20 most recent destinations you have set are automatically stored here, making it easy to return to a location. Every time you set a new destination, it replaces the oldest one on the list.
  • Avoid Area: you can store up to 10 areas that you want to avoid on your trip

User Settings: You can adjust the following user settings:

  • Color Scheme: you can select from four different color schemes for the menu system: Default, Olive, Marine, or Umber
  • Map Mode: you can set the display for either day or night illumination, or to Auto, which will automatically switch the screen to night illumination when the vehicle's headlights turn on
  • Volume Presets: you can adjust the volume of the external voice guidance speaker (there is also a volume adjustment on the speaker itself)
  • Units: you can choose between Metric (kilometers) or Imperial (miles

Mounting: Using the supplied brackets, the main unit must be mounted parallel to the ground. If the main unit is not mounted parallel to the ground, the navigation system will not operate properly.
