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 Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.
Music sources like your iPod® or Pandora® Internet radio pack a lot of info along with your music — info like song titles, artists, and albums. If your car's radio doesn't give you the full picture, why not step up to a receiver with a better display? The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X496 boasts a selectable 2- or 3-line display that puts song info in front of you in large easy-to-read characters. And the display and button colors can be varied to match almost any dashboard, so your new receiver will look like it belongs in your car.
