Overview

Our take on the Kenwood DDX371

Kenwood's DDX371 sets a high mark for in-dash DVD receivers, offering compatibility with many iPhone® apps, comprehensive iPod® controls, and built-in Bluetooth. Its bright 6.1" touchscreen and simple menu interface make it easy to use, so you can spend your time enjoying its many features and less time reading the manual.

Add Bluetooth® and multi-media versatility

Kenwood's DDX371 sets a high mark for in-dash DVD receivers, offering compatibility with many iPhone® apps, comprehensive iPod® controls, and built-in Bluetooth. Its bright 6.1" touchscreen and simple menu interface make it easy to use, so you can spend your time enjoying its many features and less time reading the manual.

Getting started with Bluetooth is easy. When you connect your iPhone to the USB port, the receiver automatically recognizes the phone and sends out a pairing request. Just press a button on the DDX371's touchscreen and you're ready to go.

Kenwood DDX371 DVD receiver

Movies look fantastic on the Kenwood's screen when you're parked.

iPhone® app control

Kenwood's iPhone App Mode lets you take control of some cool apps from the receiver's touchscreen — like video content from sources like Netflix and YouTube when your car's parked (extra cables required). The DDX371 also offers fingertip control over your Pandora® Internet radio stations when your smartphone's connected via USB or Bluetooth. Another big plus — if you've got Garmin's impressive Street Pilot app loaded on your iPhone 4 or 4S (or iPad® 1, 2, and 3), you can display maps and directions on the receiver's screen, so you can stay on course during your travels.

Play your music and videos

When your iPod or iPhone's connected, you can view album art and browse through your playlists with a few swipes of your finger. And your legacy media is good to go too — the DDX371 plays all your CDs, DVDs, and recordable discs, and you can plug a thumb drive loaded with hours of music into the receiver's USB input. This Kenwood also gives you a rear input for your A/V sources. And if you think that radio isn't cool any more, add a SiriusXM tuner to this Kenwood and find out how entertaining satellite radio can be.

You can watch your favorite DVDs on the built-in screen whenever you're parked. But if you're traveling, you can entertain your back seat passengers while you drive — just set them up with an external screen and wireless headphones and they can watch video content while you drive.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Kenwood stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and this Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

Note: Bluetooth compatibility with this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Shaggy from Mansfield Ohio on 4/5/2015

    2006 Ford F-150
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Paired this with the kicker 6x8's. This combo sounds great, easy to install wiring. Haven't hooked up a second screen or back up camera, so no comment on dual zone and reverse camera yet. DVD operates as it should. Bluetooth is the main feature I wanted and dual zone was another. Bluetooth is easy to use and sounds good. This is the most I've spent on an aftermarket head unit and my first Kenwood. I would make this purchase again. Crutchfield made it easy for me to find exactly what I wanted. My only complaint is about the shipping, I payed for overnight and didn't get it for three days.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    Crutchfield response on 4/7/2015 We're sorry the overnight delivery fell through. We had your order boxed and out the door well before lunchtime. According to UPS, the delay was caused by inclement weather (February snowstorms). Even so, we refunded the extra shipping fee back to your account.

    Excellent!

    Pros: Excellent set of features and a volume KNOB!

    Cons: none

    Awesome!

    Apex from North Carolina on 3/19/2015

    I Love this! The display is crisp and clear and the sound woke up my speakers. I highly recommend this unit

    Pros: Easy to install; great visual quality; excellent sound

    Cons: None

    No luck with this product

    RaiW from Bay Area, Ca on 3/18/2015

    I purchased one from a dealer who installed it for me. The first unit had problems with the phone app not working properly when connected to my iPhone and was replaced. The sound quality was awesome. The second unit was installed and the sound quality was poor. I tried everything to adjust the sound but it just was not the same as the first unit. About 6 months later I started having problems with the xm antenna cutting out, blue tooth stopped working and certain phone features quit working. I could plug my phone in and listen to Pandora but I could not use the phone or listen to mp3. Bluetooth would not let me initialize and lost all settings from connected phones. I am in process of getting another replacement and am hoping I can get something other than a Kenwood, No more Kenwoods for me.

    Pros: None : I am very unsatisfied with this unit

    Cons: There is no built in microphone mute button when talking on the phone. Must revert to actual phone screen which is a distraction and unsafe when you have an auto lock. Expected easier sound settings No equalizer controls UI is clunky and needs serious improvements specifically around the phone UI and searching for music Voice recognition only seems to work when launching it from the phone, unit voice recognition activation does not always work.

    Great Head Unit

    I am in love with this new stereo

    Pros:

    Cons: it would be great if the remote were included in the box instead of buy it separately

    So close...but returned

    Reid from Austin, TX on 2/25/2015

    1998 Volvo V70 T5
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Got this because it had decent reviews and a volume knob. Yes, a volume knob. A feature that was probably the best thing about this stereo. However, it didn't make up for the other pitfalls of the unit. It seems as though not a single headunit manufacturer has it perfect yet. Am I being picky? Maybe...but I'd prefer for my car modifications to look and function relatively bespoke, unlike some units that otherwise conjure images of Fast and the Furious interiors. Through all of this, Crutchfield was more than helpful and accommodating which is why I will always buy from them. Kudos to them. But I digress. Here's my thoughts:

    Pros: Bluetooth call quality was actually pretty decent! I never had to yell, repeat myself, or otherwise enunciate like an idiot...which is nice. The fit and trim of the unit itself was also very nice. It included the cage and trim ring that looked perfect in my car (98 Volvo V70), which I have later learned is a luxury as other manufacturers often don't include either. The volume knob came in clutch, and I can yet to decipher Why some manufacturers prefer 2/10ths of an inch more screen than a knob.

    Cons: Bluetooth connection was spotty, frequently making me switch between sources to Finally connect to my phone. Sound quality was pretty sub-par, no matter how well I EQ'd the system, and sound would frequently dip in volume at random times. The interface itself was pretty miserable and reminiscent of something from 1999 and had figured that Some improvements were made since it's 2015 after all. Phone book was useless to download from your phone, because it constantly froze. Spotify? Only using BT.

    Great upgrade from stock!!!

    72valiant from Cincinnati, OH on 2/22/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Very nice. Especially for the price. Satellite and Bluetooth hooked up super easy. Sounds great with the new speakers. Only frustration was during install. The screws were too short to attach the kit bracket to the sides of the unit. Had to run to the auto parts store with the dash apart.

    Pros: Sounds great. Easy hook up to satellite and Bluetooth.

    Cons: Having to run to store in middle of install for right screws. Larger display of station and clock would be nice.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I like the look and functionality of the device. Easy to install and alot of hidden coolness I didn't know it had.

    Pros: All in one for ur entertainment needs optional head read work great. Easy to navigate threw the menus.

    Cons: No remote. Dvd still plays while listening to music but audio from head rest is not movie it's the radio. Not sure if that a possibility for Kenwood to change.

    Crutchfield response on 2/24/2015 Thanks for sharing your feedback on this stereo. It sounds like the backseat audio problem can be fixed either in the receiver's settings or by switching the audio output on rear of the stereo. Since you purchased the receiver from us, please call our Tech Support team and they'll help you figure it out.

    Great Radio for the Price!

    Excellent receiver for the money. Bluetooth hands free works and sounds great! Fits perfectly in my Jeep.

    Pros: Easy to use, looks great. Great value for the money.

    Cons: Had to cut out the factory metal bracket in the rear of the factory radio opening which took some time and a dremel.

    I just installed this unit in a beat up 96 Tacoma and its great. Factory speakers doors for now with a fosgate punch 300.1 amp and a kicker l5 10" truck box and it sounds great

    Pros: Very easy to install and tune

    Cons: so far don't have anything bad to say to say about this unit

    Fantastic receiver for the money!

    Greg G from Austin, Texas on 2/8/2015

    2013 Honda Fit
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I was watching this DVD player for a few months and got a great deal on Black Friday pricing. I've had it installed in my 2013 Honda FIt for 3 months and no issues at all. Install time was 4-5 hours, but 1/2 that was spent soldering and heat shrinking the wiring harness. I called tech support twice and got just the answers needed for a smooth installation. I definately did not rush the install. I could do this again in about 90 minutes. The receiver has better than factory FM reception. The 18 presets are plenty. I was able to keep the factory location for the USB hookup in the glovebox and the included Matra installation kit looks like a factory installation. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

    Pros: great price better than OEM quality

    Cons: none

    Awesome radio for the $$

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great radio for the money , i had a small issue with clearance on the back , call Crutchfield Tech Support and they helped me out. Install time was like 30 minutes from start to finish with the plug and play harness. You do have to connect a few wires but if you can read you should be good to go.

    Pros: Bang for the buck

    Cons: none

    Sweet Receiver

    Beerguy1 from San Antonio, Texas on 1/29/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great radio, it has all the bells and whistles that I was looking for. Only had it installed last week so I haven't really explored all the functions. This is my 2nd Kenwood that I owned and I'm very happy with their product

    Pros: Bluetooth, Sirius Xm, DVD player(I don't think I'm going to watch movies, but you never know) User customization screens. I like the radio. Good job Kenwood

    Cons: Nothing that I come across

    Great Value

    IsaacL from New York City on 1/27/2015

    2008 Toyota Sienna
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased the Kenwood DDX371 to replace the factory CD player on my 2008 Toyota Sienna. It was fairly easy to install with the installation kit provided by Crutchfield and I also installed the PAC SWI-RC Steering Wheel Control Adapter with relative ease. The only tricky part was the brake switch wire, and the Crutchfield technicians were unable to help me out, but I did a little internet research and found how to display the videos. Once installed, the receiver worked as it should. I mainly use the USB to play music and videos. The Bluetooth works well and the microphone that comes with the receiver does its job. As some have stated, this screen does not do well with sun glare. The sound was not as rich as I expected from a Kenwood, but it's probably because I'm used to their eXcelon series. All in all, this is a great DVD receiver with great value.

    Pros: Value, easy to use, Bluetooth, USB, Video, DVD, CD

    Cons: Good, but not amazing sound. Display is hard to see in the sun.

    ChuckC from Illinois on 1/8/2015

    2011 Toyota Prius
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is a nice a/v unit. I bought it to allow me to display my rearview camera and to have Bluetooth service. In addition, it has lots of other nice features, including USB input. I was unsure about connecting a couple of the wires (power control and antenna control), so I just left them unconnected. Everything else was pretty straightforward about the installation. After spending three days getting everything in, camera wired, etc. I was quite satisfied. When I drove out into the sunlight, the display was hard to see. When I put on my sunglasses that I always use in the car, the display all but disappeared. Later, I concluded that the sunglasses are polarized and I need to see if I can get a more useful pair that will allow me to see the display. I have not tested the Bluetooth phone yet, but Bluetooth audio works very well from my iPhone5.

    Pros: Nice radio. Lots of inputs to use. Lots of adjustability. Does everything I bought it for. Good installation instructions. All necessary hardware included.

    Cons: Display is hard to see in sunlight, impossible with sunglasses on. Have to remove lots of panels (in 2011 Prius) to remove radio if you decide to plug in different wires in back of unit.

    Great upgrade

    Mike M from Anchorage,AK on 1/5/2015

    2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This deck was a great upgrade to my 5+ year old Touchscreen deck i previously had. It sounds better both thru my door speakers and my subwoofer (12in Alpine type-R). Bluetooth and Ipod work great! A big plus for me is custom wallpapers. Looks like it's not available here anymore, but it was worth the price i Paid. The bluetooth calling is pretty awesome too. handsfree talking makes driving a lot easier!

    Pros: Great Deck. Sounds awesome. easy to navigate. Ipod ready. Bluetooth pairing is easy! The deck also controls your phone's music player through bluetooth

    Cons: The Album artwork screen looks kinda weird. It's not a steady screen, it's kind of bouncy. So I turned it off and just have the artist and title screen. There's a setting if you have to change when you play music through bluetooth. I uninstalled the deck 3x to see if i messed up the wiring harness. It was a simple change in the settings menu. (music only played thru the front speakers).

    2013 Mitsubishi Lancer
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    It can be a little tricky to install if you really have no clue what you're doing. However if you do your homework and get it set up right there really isn't a better head unit you can get for the price. (I bought on sale from Crutchfield for around $200). Haven't used the video much, but bypassing the ground away from the parking brake was so simple it seemed wrong, but it wasn't.

    Pros: Sleek and stylish. Loads up my roughly 1,500 song iPod quickly. Decent customization options. Nice X-Over settings. Fairly straight forward install. Dash kit was included! Free shipping!? Free harness kit!?! Crutchfield is amazing!

    Cons: Catches finger prints. It doesn't drive my car for me.

    Upgraded my wife's 6 CD changer receiver, with this unit, put a back-up camera and Sirius radio, and now the2004 Lexus is like a 2007 It looks like is a factory unit, great match with the in-dash kit.

    Pros: Works great, attractive, back-up camera, Sirius radio and Bluetooth phone capabilities.

    Cons: none

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    After several hours and attempts, I could not get this radio located appropriately in my dash. Easy to install otherwise and Crutchfield's tech support is great. I will be exchanging for an Alpine single DIN model instead. Factory mounting brackets aren't compatible with this head unit.

    Pros: Easy Bluetooth connection and nice display.

    Cons: iPod and iPhone integration could be better and sound quality is inferior compared with Alpine. Don't try to install in a Nisaan Altima with dash similar to the 2000 model year.

    Nice

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Massive upgrade from the stock radio in my 2000 ford f250! The backup camera feature is great for backing up to trailers. No more getting out of the truck 5 time before getting the the ball lined up. Sound quality is awesome. Built in cross over, so now i cant wait to get a sub woofer and amp.

    Pros: backup camera input, Pandora control through your phones Bluetooth, great number of features and settings especially for the price.

    Cons: i wish i could make the screen a lot dimmer than it gets at night time.

    great sound!!!! Very easy function control.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    My stock Tundra 6 disc JBL system sounded good. I couldn't believe how much better it sounded with this receiver. I rarely use discs anymore and the bluetooth compatabilty makes all the music on my android phone easily available. Don't even get me started on the pandora options. Finally, this system is setup forplug and play sirius/xm play for a minor cost upgrade that allows 80 stations for a $9.99 a month fee. So basically I have music/video/pandora and satellite for a small price.

    Pros: Also has a backup camera video option.

    Cons: None yet!

    Stevothenerd from Pennsylvania on 12/14/2014

    2009 Toyota Highlander
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have an 09 Toyota Highlander Base mode. This gave me a screen for backup cam, screen is responsive, intuitive interface, using mainly music apps via Bluetooth (Amazon music, iheart radio, Pandora, Podcasts, Songza, Tunein Radio. Sound quality is outstanding, and display shows. Artist, title, Album, etc. I'm 53, and the last time I installed a car stereo, was 35yrs ago, when I open ended up the head unit, steering wheel adapter, and install cables I took a big swallow and wondered if it was a major mistake to take on the project myself. After several calls for help from Crutchfield I had the unit successfully installed. I hooked up a cheap backup cam I had from another car, and it looks great. A nice option on the newer head units like this is the capability to display the cam when not in reverse. I programmed the phone button for a long press to display the cam. I will use this feature when towing my boat and dirt bikes, very handy..

    Pros: It's all good

    Cons: When using a cam, the reverse screen displays a disclaimer to check the surroundings. Would be nice if there was a way to turn this off, promised i won't sue Kenwood.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great sound, plenty of power even if not using an amp. Installed in 2013 Corolla alon with SirrusXM module and steering whell control module. Insatal was very east but expect alot of time spent on soldering your connections. Control interface is very intuitive. I am running JBL 2 ways in doors and back deck and sounds amazing. Bletooth mic sounds great as well when making calls

    Pros: Clean sound, deep bass amazing treible. lots of custiomization options. intuitive controls. Flawless bluetooth operation

    Cons: Not much really. User manial is very small, could use a larger wiring diagram.

    Great bang for the buck.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Major upgrade in sound quality over factory head unit with Kicker speakers that had already been installed. Blue tooth works flawlessly with I Phone 5S and 6. Unit is easy to learn how to use (with a few exceptions) and looks great in my 2007 F150.

    Pros: Sound quality, ease of use, excellent blue tooth hands free operation with I Phone 5S and 6.

    Cons: Not major flaws but, factory default for bluetooth only uses the front two speakers(easy to change in settings), Pandora and USB will not play audio with I phone 5S or 6 with factory settings either. You need to put the receiver in standby ( not in the instruction) to change the settings from I Pod to AV2 to get the audio to work.

    Great product

    The receiver is a very good quality product and looks awesome in my envoy. The only thing i don't like about it is there's no front aux port. But it was on sale at the time so I cant really complain.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I gave the "Coolness Factor" a 3 because the lack of iPhone 6 support is pretty weak. I bought the deck wanting to use the USB Video Application mode for maps and navigation come to find out that it only works with the 30 pin iOS Devices. No Support for lightning video app mode. Also on the iPhone 6 it does not support SMS Notifications. Other than that it is a great little deck. Good sound, very stable device and fun features.

    Pros: Sound Quality, Bluetooth Handsfree Calling, DVD Playback of movies and video files from USB, Change background to any JPG you want

    Cons: Very minimal iPhone 5 and 6 support. Bluetooth calling and audio and Pandora link and that is about it.

    Great headunit; I have had double din Kenwood headunits in my last 5 cars...all of them great. They are super easy to use and navigating the menus is simple (maybe I'm used it now). This unit has the bluetooth feature that is great with my iPod. When I get in and start the car, it automatically syncs with my iPod. You can add multiple devices for it to recognize. I don't have a sub in my current car, but if you add one, there is a separate option to adjust just the subwoofer with this headunit. Overall, great headunit and wouldn't buy any other than Kenwood!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Still working on all the applications and features but enjoying the new receiver so far. Setting up the unit isn't always straight forward and Tech Support had to be called in three times to get the unit working with all the inputs - Bluetooth (default setting is front speakers only, so rear speakers don't play until you select "ALL"), iPod (if you're using standard iPod cables you have to switch the receiver to "AVN2" instead of "iPod". Only use "iPod" you use Kenwood cables), and Pandora (haven't figured out the direct connection to the receiver yet as compared to streaming the app via Bluetooth.

    Pros: Good sounding unit, great display

    Cons: Confusing/quirky set up

The wiring instructions from Crutchfield could of been clearer but I couldn't find any fault with the call in support I called three times and all three times they walked me threw the steps clearly and precisely to my satisfaction until i had to call back and ask the next question.

    Pros: easy to understand set up and sync's easily to iphones.

    Cons: the fm tuner is not very strong to pull in signals with stock VW antennae

    Great Unit

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I read tons of reviews before i made this choice. I went to a local store to see the units and to try the functionality. The pioneer looked a lot cheaper and didnt have a volume knob. Everything is straight forward and easy! The only reason for four star and not five, is the reception is horrible. It goes in and out... Fuzz then no fuzz. And now that its cheaper then when i bought it last week, i hope Crutchfield gives me a store credit!!

    Pros: Look, volume knob

    Cons: Bad tuner reception

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I replaced the head unit of my 2004 Toyota Sienna and am very pleased. It was simple to install and everything works properly. I purchased the recommended interface to allow the streering wheel volume controls and surround sound to operate. When playing a movie, it is theater sound quality and a great picture. We have an a/m dvd player that operates from the Kenwood head for playing the video and sound portion. We were not looking for competition quality sound, but are enjoying the benefits of high end sound.

    Pros: Did all that was advertised. Instances the sound of the factory JBL sound system. Bluetooth works great and sounds the same as the Sync system on my 2014 car.

    Cons: Instructions for actual usage and functionality are a bit vague.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I tend to research things to death before making a purchase so as to eliminate the "darn....wish I had" syndrome. This radio was an excellent upgrade. Like some others, it is not clear in the instructions from Kenwood or Crutchfield that the blue "power antenna" wire MUST be connected else your AM stations will not work. I learned this the hard way and had to pull my radio back out after a very clean and successful installation. The 2010 Corolla as well as many other vehicles now seem to have an antenna amplifier and it needs to be connected. I liked the fact this radio allows you set the panel colors so as to match your dash. While the background screen allows for customization I have yet to discover how to change the start-up screen so as to allow displaying a Toyota logo for an even more OEM look. At first I was looking for a radio with a totally flat screen and controls without a knob sticking out. I'm really glad I went with this model. The volume knob is not offensive and provides an easy and much safer way to adjust the volume while driving in my opinion. The DVD is a great feature however I was a little disappointed when calling tech support that they "don't research that far" for installing the green ground wire that should attach to the parking brake switch and was directed to perform a YouTube search. They were able to tell me I was to look for a tan wire as my car was manufactured in Canada and that was certainly appreciated. A great value for any vehicle IMO

    Pros: Lots of features that make it a pleasure to own over the stock radio. Bluetooth/phone integration was my main reason for upgrading and this radio delivers flawlessly. Ability to dim with lights and adjust level a plus. Very clean and well thought-out design and layout. Menus are intuitive with little need for referencing the manual...but don't throw it out! :-) Allows for a reverse camera Works with Siri Reception is excellent on FM as well as AM (now that antenna amplifier wire is connect

    Cons: Power antenna connection was not clear. Would like to have seen a built in microphone but was not a deal breaker. Not everything on the iPhone screen will appear on the radio screen even with the suggested adapter cable. This may be an Apple issue however. Would like to have seen a way to customize the start-up screen, not just the background.

    Exactly as advertised

    From opening the package to full installation was an hour. Easy. I even took the time to heat shrink the wires to ensure perfect contact and working quality. Honestly, works like a charm.

    Pros: Easy to install, sound boost was awesome.

    Cons: Takes FOREVER to link to any phone with bluetooth. I actually have to select another source then go back to bluetooth and wait about a minute for it to start working. Could be an easy fix, but it's more annoying than anything else. If that's my only complaint, I would call it a win

    Kenwood has always been a quality product this is right on par, I have used Kenwood since 1982 and will continue to . Double din fits dash well but with all the extra wiring it was a squeeze to install.

    Pros: Music sounds great , Bluetooth works great and sounds clear, touch screen is easy and large.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Installed in my tow vehicle (2003 GMC 3500). Although Crutchfield lists a rear bracket must be cut out to install the Kenwood it did not. The Kenwood fit perfectly, so if you have a 2003-2006 GM full sized pickup you should be good to install this without any cutting. My FM reception is superb. I do not use AM bands. The Kenwood's 22 watts RMS push four 80 watt RMS Alpine speakers just fine. Bluetooth calls and music works great. Using the USB interface with iPhone 6 through Lightning requires changing the setting from iPod to AV2 to work. I had to disable album artwork to avoid problems with the display during USB connection. They really should have a front USB input and 3.5 mm aux input on the front. All in all very easy install with provided kit and door chime adapter. Very happy with the stereo pending it providing a few years of trouble free service.

    Pros: Fits 03-06 GM trucks with no alterations Plenty of power for basic users Simple to use Good Bluetooth performance

    Cons: No remote included No front inputs (USB,3.5 mm) Can't customize startup screen only background wallpaper Doesn't illuninate when powered off with interior lights

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This stereo has many nice features: Bluetooth, ability to connect a backup camera, phone compatibility, & 3 outputs. It looks great on dashboard of a Subaru Forester. This sounds great on installed speakers. I had it installed by a local audio service company. Fortunately, I purchased a USB connect from Crutchfield, or I would not be able to use the USB option. Everything in this system is plugged in thru the back. I should have ordered an AUX input as well. But the installer found a $5 cord to connect from Video I output on back. He used the Subaru's AUX. Nothing is installed on Video II output. Iif you get this, think about what cords you will need. Our iPhone & IPad link via Bluetooth in a way not clear in booklet. Once you connect with Bluetooth (which is clear in directions), then you connect thru the Phone/Bluetooth icon. So far we can't get Pandora to work with Apple products, but Phone/Bluetooth link seems just as good, altho we're not getting images. Phonebook on Android phone links nicely. Not as many FM presets as I would like. Clearly I will be spending some time with the manual.

    Pros: Attractive. Sounds great. Bluetooth, once you figure it out. Backup camera connection. Customizable background image on main screen. Phone connections

    Cons: Bluetooth directions are unclear for linking Apple products, altho once you figure it out, it's fine. Everything on the back means planning ahead before installation. Using the buttons is a little awkward, maybe ill be easier after awhile.

    DavidF from Wetumpka, Alabama 36092 on 9/30/2014

    I haven't looked for an aftermarket radio for years and years and when I did it then it was such a pain to install so it has been a while. The DDX371 had everything I could ask for and it all works flawlessly. Great sound and even the Bluetooth phone sounds great on the receiving side. I have had no problems with any Bluetooth connections; It connects very quick. Ran the Pandora via Bluetooth and again, perfect. Got the SiriusXM tuner with the unit and again, perfect. I can't say anymore except this radio has it all and works as advertised plus at the price being sold here, it was $100.00 cheaper. I installed this unit into a 2000 Ford F350 dually and was very leery since it had been a long while since installing one. But with the help from the customer support, I had everything I needed and then some to get the install done within a matter of 5 hours. It only took that long because I took a lot of time studying where every thing went and how it fits before making any required modifications. I took it step by step and the install went off with out a hitch.

    Pros: Great price, easy install, easy to operate, it all works as advertised.

    Cons: No cons what-so-ever.

    Installed the radio into a 2000 Ford Superduty p/u. Install paperwork was confusing because although I bought all the correct parts, the primary install book didn't make it clear to disregard certain parts if installing with other parts. Also disappointed that the USB does not recognize certain music playing devices. Best I can figure is that it won't recognize the microchip that is in the device. The device will play through Blue Tooth, however.

    Pros: quality, sound, functionality

    Cons: confusing installation documentation, doesn't completely fit in the dish comforably as I would like for it to. unable to completely move icons around on the primary screen as I would like.

    This unit seems like it will last. Sound is good. The navigation part (getting through the screens) is a bare. The USB driver takes a good 2-3 mins to load! My factory unit was instant as I plugged it in. This one says "reading.." and stays like that for a good 3 mins! Don't listen it to the thumb drive that often but it does take a very long time which I find very annoying.

    Pros: Looks good Touch screen is large and easy to use (light touch needed)

    Cons: Takes it over 3 mins to read a USB thumb drive. Hard to navigate

    Got this about a week ago. Install was easy except for that dang green wire which I now know goes to your E break (no mention of that anywhere). I got the scoche brand wiring harness so I could keep my steering wheel controls and whatnot. The DDX371 is an all around good buy. I liked that I got a dvd player, bluetooth and all that other jazz for a great price. Messed around a little with the mic that it came with and still not sure of the quality.

    Pros: Bluetooth streaming, External Ipod adapter, ability to add a backup camera or backseat monitor.

    Cons: Wish there was a way to turn off the display at night as it is a little bright even dimmed all the way down when driving on dark roads. Wish the was a separate subwoofer control button on main screen or separate knob( I just installed an aftermarket PAC knob, problem solved). Wish there was a way to tap into the installed vehicle mic instead of using kenwoods.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The main reasons for replacing the stock radio in my 2006 Chrysler 330C were to have hands free calling, mp3 playback via flash drive, to retain steering wheel controls, and touch screen capability all at an affordable cost. The secondary reasons were to have the ability to add monitors in the back seat for the kids and to add a backup camera in the future. The nice to have features included extended Bluetooth capabilities for streaming Pandora and audio files from my Galaxy S4. Based on the listed reasons I am very happy with this purchase. Hands free calling works well and sounds very good on both sides of the connection. Not as good as factory installed hands free calling but they have the advantage of better microphone placement than any aftermarket unit ever will. The touch screen controls are nice and responsive. Given my hand size some of the buttons could be larger but they are well sized to the size of the screen. The screen itself always looks crisp and sharp except when sunlight hits it directly and washes it out but that's common with all LCD screens that I have encountered. Understanding that this is an entry level DVD receiver there are still some things I thought would be better. First and foremost is the speed in which a flash drive is read and browsed through. It is slow. Painfully slow. I have several 4Gb drives to limit the volume of information to speed this process. I shudder to think how slow browsing would be on a 16 or 32Gb volume.

    Pros: everything it advertises it does it does well.

    Cons: no front USB port slow flash drive browsing clunky interface (it be nice to customize what info shows during playback)

    Awesome

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This Kenwood double din head unit fits nicely in my 2006 Mustang GT. The instructions that came with the install kit were fairly easy to follow had some concerns with the wiring that didnt make sense. With a little research found out how the 12v to 5v converter was supposed to be wired in. And the factory pre-amp wiring kit when looked up by part number shows its supposed to have 4 rcas plugs. If doing the kit in a Mustang with factory subs in the doors put them in the sub preouts on the back of the head unit(not the front preouts like the instructions say). Overall quality of the product itself i was extremely pleased with. I usually run Pioneer in everything and this is my first dvd head unit let alone Kenwood and am very impressed with the amount of customizing that this product has. Even got the button colors to match my instrument panels color as well.

    This headunit cleans up my dash. Looks great! I'm running polk DXi571 all four speakers. They are great for mids and highs, but not really bass to complete the music. Buy the remote control, its a reach to adjust volume if your seat is set as mine. Remote control next on my list including 4" lift. The oem black screws you remove from factory radio will not work with the aftermarket metra dash kit using spacers that are included. You will need to cut off the backside plastic on the dash kit to slide it in. I installed DIY with a 2 minute call to Crutchfield about wire harness and complete! Sits flush with dash, works great, now I just need to add a sub and amp for complete sound. The headunit is awesome, bluetooth works great with android and pandora. Thanks Crutchfield for the help during install and great product, will be buying sub and amp soon.

    Pros: Great customer service, they took their time with me and helped every step!

    Cons: No cons on headunit or customer service!

    Great product, great pricing.

    Easy peasy bluetooth connection and with the added iPod connector I can display movies and TV shows from my iPod. Would have liked a more expanded EQ but beggers can't be choosers...

    Pros: Good display, quality output, easy connections.

    Cons: EQ is less than expected for the Kenwood brand name.

    The Kenwood double din stereo was very easy to install with the Crutchfield vehicle-specific instructions. It looks great with the metra dash kit and sounds amazing. It works great with a subwoofer and the display is high quality. The features are semi limited if looking for top of the line but CD, Bluetooth, tuner, and telephone work great. Lastly, place the Bluetooth microphone in a strategic position in vehicle for best call quality.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    So far I'm loving this radio. It looks good and functions like it should. I have always preferred Kenwood radios over the competition. They seem more user friendly to me. I was looking to upgrade from the stock stereo in my 2010 camaro. My requirements were it needed to be back-up camera ready, bluetooth built in for calls and audio streaming, and allow for custom tuning on the sound. This unit fit the bill and was a good deal cheaper than most of the competitors' offerings. The unit was easy to install and the interface is very intuitive. It does have a slight delay when going through menu options. I love that you can select the color of the display and upload your own images for a background. Adding the back up camera was easy and it works flawlessly every time. All in all, I'm very happy with my selection. My only complaints are minor - when streaming audio using bluetooth the radio selects my entire music library on my iphone instead of the last played playlist. Kind of annoying but I am enjoying "rediscovering" music. We chose not to buy the special cable from kenwood. I am happy to report that the radio will play music using the Apple lightning cord that came with my phone. Since I have the iphone 5 video streaming is not available anyways. Not a big deal to me. My only other issue is syncing my phone. This radio, while capable of syncing with up to 5 devices, only properly works when 1 phone is saved. Any more and it acts up.

    Pros: Competitively priced Lots of features Easy interface

    Cons: Slight delay when selecting menu options Bluetooth streaming picks random songs Glitchy if you sync more than 1 phone at a time

    The Kenwood DDX371 is my second attempt at installing an after-market DVD player in my Jeep Grand Cherokee. The first, a Sony WX-GT90BT, which turned out to be a complete fiasco. The folks in Tech Support were patient and helpful but that unit was apparently not comparable with my Boston sound system. I now believe otherwise, after successfully installing the Kenwood. The unshod being I now have a better unit that is easier to use and has more features that I can truly use. It was still a hassle but now operating as advertised. My favorite feature the is the hands free, which functions almost as well as the U-Connect in my Wife's Chrysler. Second is the iPod function that will stream music and other apps from an iPod Classic or iPhone. I opted to install Sirius/XM, but now find it unnecessary. Still, it's there if needed, and Sirius/XM cut my annual fee in half when I called to cancel. I don't find the sound quality to be any better than the factory system.

    Pros: Nice looking unit that could pass for a factory installed unity, Hand-free works perfectly. IPod connection provides a lot of entertainment flexibility. Tech Support is fantastic. Easy to switch between functions.

    Cons: Somewhat difficult to install given the size (especially the depth) of the unit. Instructions are poorly written and not at all intuitive.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Upgraded a factory Shaker system in a 07 Mustang. Was very easy to install with the excellent instructions provided by Crutchfied. All the necessary parts were provided. Took about 1.5 hrs. ( due to the amount of wires) simple color coded. Fits snug and looks great in the dash compared to the original. First, my lights were out on my factory unit, so the initial start up was awesome. Very customizable colors sound etc. Bluetooth connected right up with no issues, Pandora works great. (My favorite feature) lots of sound settings which will take a little getting used to. Im sure the more expensive models have more options but this is a thousand times better than the factory unit so far. I thought that i would not like The corded USB connector, but turns out that it is really a good idea. I'm not sure that i would be able to change gears with a thumb drive sticking out of The front. The screen is a little better than I expected. I was imagining an old style sluggish gps touchscreen, not the case, very comparable to a smart phone. Also very responsive, not sluggish like I expected with a lower priced unit. Sounds great in the car. Kenwood has really improved their products over past past few years. Overall, very pleased with the product, customer service and knowledge of the crutchfield team. They made sure I had everything needed to install. From now on I think I'll be using Crutchfield for ALL my sound system needs.

    Pros: Price, quality, options

    Cons:

    This is the first Kenwood receiver that I have owned in a while, but I decided to give it a try for my daughter's Jetta. We have had it installed for about a month now and it has performed admirably! The interface of the touchscreen is laid out well, and the multiple functions are easily controllable. The bluetooth connected easily to her iPhone 5 and playing music from her library or Pandora works well. Overall, I have found this receiver to be constructed well, stylish, and functional. At 22 watts RMS there is a noticeable improvement over the factory radio, and with Crutchfield's support installation was a breeze! This unit is a good buy at it's price point!

    Pros: Stylish, easy bluetooth pairing, great sound, a very good value!

    Cons: None so far.

    Great product for the price. Installed in 2007 Jeep Wrangler. Installation was moderately difficult as it involved the removal of the factory radio rear bracket. Wiring harness and instructions were excellent. Telephone support was outstanding. Am planning on replacing the front speakers for even better sound quality in the near future. Bluetooth interface with I phone 4s works perfectly. Picture quality on movie disks is very good. Pandora interface works well too. Went with this unit over the built in navgation unit to save several hundred dollars on a 7 year old jeep. Am using google maps app on my cell phone for this purpose.

    Pros: great value for the price.

    Cons: The aftermarket mounting bracket which attaches to the receiver was shipped with screws which were too short to attach the bracket to the unit. Customer service was more than willing to ship the correct length screws but I opted for a trip to the hardware store to save the three day shipping wait..

    I would not buy this product again. The worst thing about it is the glare. During the day I cannot see the screen to operate the unit! Some of the menu touch screen buttons are around the edge of the screen, which makes it not 'read' that you are touching the button. So you have to push it a few times to get it to work. Screen is grainy, cumbersome and looks very dated. It is 100% not worth the money.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased this unit for my new car, and Crutchfield helped me install it. I was nothing short of blown away at the massive increase in sound quality, and my factory radio was supposedly a 'premium sound' option on the car! No contest, the Kenwood DDX371 knocks it outta the park, hands down. Audio quality is brighter and deeper, the bass is so much punchier, and the cymbals really sizzle like they should. Plus, with the added features of Sirius XM radio and USB audio, I never need to insert a CD again (though it does that, too, and just as good!). The radio has custom EQ settings for each of the source channels, so I can set a custom EQ for the satellite radio that differs from the EQ for CD's and USB, in order to compensate for awful radio compression. It is fantastic to be able to do that, let me tell you. Now for the bad news. It's not really that bad, but I figure I'd mention it: it's one of the only radios of this level that doesn't have the USB port on the front of the radio face. Instead, there is a USB cable attached to the back of the radio (hard-wired, so don't break it!) and you have to drill a hole in your car somewhere to feed it though to the passenger compartment. I drilled a small 1/2" hole on the inside of my glove box and fed the cable through there, so if I want to play music from a USB stick, I have to open the glove box to get to it. A minor annoyance, but an annoyance nonetheless. Same for the aux input. Other than that, AWESOME RADIO!

    Pros: FAR superior sound over factory radio, easy interface to learn, COMPLETELY customizable interface, sweet touch screen, relatively easy installation for a double din radio.

    Cons: No front-face USB or AUX inputs. Both are in back and you have to run cables through a hole you drill somewhere in your dash. Not great, but not terrible, either.

    QUEST from FRESNO, CA on 8/9/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Plenty of reviews on this product on which I relied to make my purchase decision, so just some quick thoughts on the product and experience. Can't say enough positive things about Crutchfield Tech Support and Customer Care - fantastic. Tech guys Cecil and Matt - these guys get great training in listening and product knowledge. I did a lot of product research and was looking for the "sweet spot" in an entry level touch screen head unit with Bluetooth. The KENWOOD DDX371 appears a good choice. The biggest challenge was the installation into a 2002 AUDI A4. I've never attempted a stereo install, but a fairly mechanical guy. Took me 8 hours to complete the project. I did solder the connections and had some extra steps being a European car (had to run a wire to the fuse box for switched power and finding the parking brake line to tap into wasn't easy - but again, technical support was INVALUABLE! Prob paid myself no more than $10/hour.

    Pros: TECH and CUSTOMER SUPPORT! Among the best I've experienced anywhere. Good value on products and packaging of all parts you need for install is helpful for the novice installer.

    Cons: Installation in an AUDI A4 2002 was time consuming, 8-10H

    Installation on my Silverado 2500HD was pretty easy. Didn't need to modify the fit at all. The stereo sounds great with my Pioneer speakers. Touchscreen is very responsive and easy to use. Read some reviews about using an iPod via the USB cable. At first it connected, but didn't play any sound. I went into the system settings and adjusted the AV input from iPod to AV. Works great! The Bluetooth works great with my iPhone5.

    Pros: Touchscreen works great. The sound is awesome and the build quality is great!

    I needed a replacement stereo for my factory stereo in my 2004 Silverado 2500HD. I wasn't looking for the DVD player, but I did like the double DIN capacity of the this stereo, but my kids love the DVD player! The improved sound quality is amazing, I have the factory Bose system, and this head unit makes that system sound fantastic. I have an I-phone 4 and it connects flawlessly, I also use the Bluetooth hands free calling, and it works really well. The phone connects using a USB connection as expected, but you will need to buy a specific cable that has a 3.5mm jack wired in the USB to allow the audio to be transferred to the stereo. My truck has the Bose and on star system and steering wheel controls which requires a specific interface kit to be purchased, I recommend asking the Crutchfield techs to help you specifiy that interface if you have those type of requirements, they were a great help and made sure I had all the parts needed.

    Pros: Great Look, Touch screen, hands free calling, I phone connection, usb connection, Great sound

    It's a nice stereo system for the price. My only complaint is the graphics. The graphics are a little on the plain side which prevents it from really being a stand-out stereo system. Nevertheless, it's a great upgrade from a factory stereo. I'll give it a 3.5/5 stars.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I was looking for a car stereo to replace the factory stereo in my jeep. I have a a different brand stereo in my Scion and the interface is too difficult to use the buttons are too small, it is actually dangerous to use while driving plus even though there is a bluetooth connection for hands free operation there was no mic and no connection for one. All that is not true for this stereo. The buttons are large enough to easily use while driving, the functions are clear, the bluetooth integration works well for hands free operation and streaming audio and it came with a mic. The only thing it didn't come with was the cable for ipod/iphone operation but this is explainable because it is a different cable for lightning connector devices. The one thing it lacked was decent installation instructions but this was not too much of a problem as I have installed about a dozen car stereos.

    Pros: big buttons, responsive touchscreen, good ipod integration, good bluetooth connectivity, handsfree operation is excellent, I like the pandora integration as well.

    Cons: lacking in installation instructions

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this product for the Bluetooth feature and this product is beyond my expectations. This radio was very easy to install. I have never install a radio before and this unit connected directly to my 2006 Toyota Tacoma with no wire work at all. All the features work very well. The voices are clear and dialing and answering calls are very easy to use. Vice activated calling and texting is amazing. Love this radio. The sound of the Tuner is better than the factory tuner that was in there. I have little compartments in my truck were as the usb and the speaker worked out perfect.

    Pros: This hands free device limits me from dialing, looking up contacts or anything else that would distract me keeps me focused on what I am actually doing and that is driving.

    Cons: The volume control is to close or to small and I hit the touch screen accidently and it changes the station. Nor much of a big deal.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    With the posi connectors this was a very easy install into my 2007 Toyota Corolla. The supplied mounting hardware made the install very easy. I installed this about a month ago and immediately noticed a difference in the sound quality in my car. I wanted Bluetooth functionality mainly without using some adapter or FM transmitter. This was a much better option. The sound quality is great and interface is easy to navigate and the layout is customizable. The only issue I had was finding that by default the Bluetooth is set to only play audio through the front speakers. I use it mainly for streaming music so that was a good option for me. Also, if you leave the deck set to Bluetooth when turning it off it will hook back up to your phone most of the time, but won't stream music until after you switch to some other input quickly and then switch back. After finding that out and changing the default audio out setting things have been good. The microphone for the calling feature could use a little bit longer chord, but the people I have talked to said their weren't any clarity issues. All together I would say it is a very nice deck and would recommend it.

    Pros: Very easy install Great sound quality Easy interface navigation Fine tune EQ

    Cons: Bluetooth slightly quirky

    Lots of functionality, little disappointed

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I can't justify an overall rating of above 3 stars because it doesn't seem to support the iPhone 5s for anything other than bluetooth calling. I love the sound and the ability to fine tune the EQ. The touch screen is very responsive, unlike a lot of other stereos that you have to press hard or repeatedly. I also like that you can put a custom background on it. I purchased the Sirius subscription because we have one in our other vehicle. I have an issue with the signal cutting out periodically, but I think that is because of the antennae placement. As for the bluetooth capability, I was not impressed and may this is because it's not compatible with the iPhone 5s. I've had to pair the phone two times now. When I open the iPod function and try to play via bluetooth, it shows the song and counter, but no sound comes out. If I plug it in to the USB port and open the Garmin app, the stereo opens the Nav area, but the screen goes blank when I try to display the map. Unfortunately, the navigation was a big reason for this purchase, so I'm pretty disappointed with that. Maybe there's a firmware update or something.

    I wanted a double din touchscreen that would sound good and had bluetooth capability. this unit works great for what I need it to do. I have never installed a headunit before so there was a little bit of a learning curve, the crutchfield 'master' installation sheet does not really tell you anything other than 1. take the old unit out 2. put the new unit in. If you are a car stereo noob like me just know that you will need to splice some wires even if you buy a harness, make sure you have some 16ga butt connectors or something before you start the install otherwise you will be making a trip to the store halfway through the job

    Pros: it works

    Cons: it did not install itself

    Pros: Feature packed

    Cons: Make sure you turn on ALL SPEAKERS for blue tooth connectivity BEFORE you connect your blue tooth device. If you don't, you'll only have sound through your front two speakers as it default to "front speakers". Go to settings, device, scroll down to blue tooth and turn on all speakers. You are welcome.

    This headunit was way better than I expected for the price. I have it hooked up with Alpine Type S components front and rear and 2 Kicker Comp 15s with a Kicker DX1000.1 in a 2013 Jetta TDI and it simply sounds incredible for a budget system. Theres a great combination of sound quality and vision blurring bass.

    Pros: Sound quality is surprising for a budget headunit. Pandora worked great with an iPhone 5s. Bluetooth phone functionality works perfect.

    I bought this receiver last week and just had it installed a few days ago. It isn't exactly what I expected.

    Pros: - Built in Bluetooth - Ability to play DVDs - USB reader cable in the back - Plays great audio - Has a built in crossover that really works great with my speakers (infinity kappas and polk in the back) - Phone connection works great - Pandora works great

    Cons: Do not update the software (Things worked a lot better BEFORE I updated) - Bluetooth is slow to connect (sometimes requires switching to Pandora and back to Bluetooth) - Only plays DVD's. Don't expect to put your favorite videos on a USB stick and plug them in. This thing comes with zero codecs and wont play dvix, avi or mkv. - No navigation or ability to use your phones navigation

I can't use the USB drive and DVD at the same time or I have not figured that out yet. I have not attempted an iPod with the DVD though.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Excellent product and great value for the amount of features. I never installed a car stereo before, and was nearly about to have a pro do it once I took my dash apart and realized I would apparently need to do much more than "plug and play". My first challenge was that the recommended mounting brackets for my vehicle fit the vehicle, but the screws that were supplied to attach to the radio were too short and did not reach the holes in the radio. I needed to drive to Home Depot and find longer screws to be able to attach the brackets. I also wasn't aware (but probably should have been) that I needed to splice the wiring harness to the radio harness myself. I thought I could simply plug and play with the existing wiring harness but unfortunately, "No Bueno" on that. The directions sent from Crutchfield were effective at dismantling the necessary dash connections to access the radio well, but they did not indicate how to connect the wiring harness, and the instructions sent with the wiring harness were extremely vague and I basically had to figure out "red to red, white with black stripe to white with black stripe", etc. - and cross my fingers and hope it worked or at the least, didn't explode. However, it worked, and it is a great product and very good choice. If I can install it, anyone can!

    Pros: Features, cost effective, build quality.

    Cons: Installation instructions were vague and separate mounting brackets specific to my vehicle did not include the proper screws to attach to the radio.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased this unit a few weeks ago for my 2011 Jeep Liberty. I finally called Best Buy and had them install it for me ($99). It was well worth it, because I have never attempted installing something like this before. It took him about an hour and it turned out awesome! I really had no idea what to expect, but it looks factory installed. It paired easily with my iPhone 5s. The screen can be tricky to navigate at first, but after messing around with it and reading the manual, I have most of it figured out. The only minor issue I had was that the back speakers would not work while using Bluetooth. I read other reviews and then figured out how to go into Bluetooth settings. From there, I could turn on "all speakers" from the options. Pretty easy once I figured it out. Another neat thing about this unit is that you can customize it with photos. I can set some of my favorite photos as the background. I also have an AUX and USB port that were installed through my glove compartment. So lots of options with this unit and I love it so far!! The audio is also amazing!!!

    Pros: Great options!!

    Cons: Menu can be tricky to figure out at first, but once mastered it is pretty easy.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Just installed this head unit last weekend. It's the first part of my system that will include a component pair of Polk speakers up front, two new Kenwood rear speakers, and two JL tens in the back with a JL amp. Since it's the first piece of the puzzle, I can only speak for its functionality, style, and build quality. So far everything is awesome and works seamlessly. Two pieces of advice for people installing this: If you use the bluetooth audio function for playing music, which is awesome, you'll want to go into your bluetooth audio settings to make sure sound is coming from all 4 of your speakers. It initially only plays out of the front speakers. If you also use the included USB function for an iPhone, you'll have to go into the audio settings and switch it from iPod to the AV function in order to get sound to your speakers. The head unit itself is super pretty and works great with all the touch functionality it offers. Being a touch sceen it goes without saying that there will be a little bit of finger smudge when light is cast on it, but nothing a little soft cloth won't fix. All the specs lead me to believe this will really compliment my new set up. Oh and in the interim, its made my stock speakers 100% nicer. Easy install, amazing help from Crutchfield (I called them after I couldn't find the parking brake wire for the DVD functionality. They emailed me a picture while I was on the phone with them of exactly where it's located and how to wire it). Awesome!

    Pros: All the above.

    Cons: Like with all touch screens, you can't "feel" for some of knobs. In this case there's a volume knob, which I'm all about, a menu button, and a telephone button. When clicking next you will kind of have to memorize where it is if you want to change the song without looking at the head unit. It would be nice if there were "hard" previous and next buttons. But that's pretty darn minor.

    I wanted a head unit that would perform all the functions I was looking for, (bluetooth streaming, usb, iPod, XM) and that had a volume knob. crossovers and customizable colors. The unit would also need to look stylish in my car. What I got was a unit that well exceeded my expectations. The crossovers can be fine tuned enough to my liking (cutting the bass out of the smaller speakers, killing the highs out of the bass speakers, etc). The instructions that come with the kits are easy to follow and I received everything I needed to make the installation simple. If you are looking for a great radio, you won't be disappointed. Kenwood head units provide great sound, and all the features you can think of.

    Pros: Reasonable price, great sound, customizable colors, customizable background image, bluetooth streaming, etc. This thing has it all.

    Cons: The only issue I found was with mp3's on USB stick and the same with the iPod connected. If the mp3 has an image embedded for the album artwork, a weird blue screen (looked like debug mode) would pop up and render the screen pretty much useless. I had to use an mp3 editor to get rid of the album artwork and this stopped happening. It's possible the unit is looking for some specific size or type image, not sure.

The screen has a resolution of 800 (H) x 480 (V) x RGB with 1,152,000 total pixels. This unit has touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics, making menu navigation easy.

    • Aspect Ratio: You can change the aspect ratio for video playback. You can select from Full (16:9), Just (4:3 LB), Normal (4:3), or Auto (automatically selects to match incoming video signal) .
    • Picture Adjustment: You can adjust the unit's display brightness, contrast, color, tint, sharpness, and black level to suit your viewing needs during video playback.
    • Custom Background Images: You can download a still image (800 x 600) for use as the unit's background from a connected USB thumbdrive.
    • Customized Top Menu: You can select and arrange which sources and icons display on the unit's Top Menu screen for easier, quicker access. Select the "ALL SRC" icon to see all sources at one time.

    Note: For your convenience, this unit is equipped with a multiple language display. Select between 18 different languages including English, Spanish, French and others.

    Front-Panel Controls w/ Variable Color Illumination: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons and a rotary-dial along the left edge of the screen. You can adjust the head unit's button illumination 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). The Eject and Kenwood logo remain red, regardless of variable color illumination setting.

    Dimmer: The dimmer function will dim this unit's display and button illumination automatically when the vehicle light switch is turned On when you connect orange/white Illumination wire of this player's harness. You can also manually dim the unit's display and button illumination. You can adjust the dimmer level from -15 to +5.

RDS is a service used by some radio stations to transmit data outside of normal radio broadcast signals. When an RDS station is received, you can immediately find out what kind of data is being transmitted by looking at the program service name which appears in the display after the frequency. RDS features an emergency transmission function which interrupts regular programming to broadcast an emergency announcement (such as a tornado or severe storm). There is also a switchable Traffic Information function, which will automatically tune a traffic bulletin when it is broadcast, even when you're not listening to the radio.

    • Seek Modes: You can choose one of three tuning modes: Auto 1 (seek tuning), Auto 2 (cycles through and tunes the selected band's preset stations only with each button press), or Manual.
    • Presets: Not only does the multimedia receiver's tuner allow you manually enter your desired presets you can choose to have the unit automatically put stations with good reception in the memory banks automatically; this is a handy feature when traveling.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The Kenwood DDX371 utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality with a Signal to Noise ratio up to 99dB.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Kenwood DDX371 is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power output specs for the DDX371 are as follows:

    • Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
    • Maximum Output Power: 50 watts x 4 channels

    6ch/4V Preamp Outputs: The DDX371 features front, rear and subwoofer 4.0-volt preamp outputs. The front and rear speaker preamp outputs are balance and fade adjustable. The subwoofer preamp output is non-fading. The front, rear, and subwoofer preamp outputs are fixed to the rear chassis of the head unit.

    Front & Rear High-Pass Filter: The DDX371 features an independent High-Pass Crossover for the front & rear channels when your front & rear speakers are connected by the unit's speaker-outputs or preamp-outputs. You can adjust the high-pass crossover from 'Through' (off), 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 150, 180, or 220 Hz. The "Through" selection is a full-range setting. This feature is very helpful when you have smaller-type speakers in the front and larger-type speakers installed in the rear of the vehicle.

    Subwoofer Controls: The Kenwood DDX371 offers the following subwoofer controls, when you have the unit's subwoofer preamp output activated.

    • Low Pass Filter: The receiver features a built-in Low Pass Filter control for the preamp-output, when the output is set to Subwoofer. You can select from 50, 60, 80, Hz, 100 Hz, 120 Hz, or 'Through' (off).
    • Subwoofer Phase: You can adjust the phase of the subwoofer output between 180-degrees (Reverse) or 0-degrees (Normal).
    • Subwoofer Level: Once the Subwoofer preamp output is activated, you can independently control the subwoofer preamp output level (-50 to +10) from the DVD receiver.

    Speaker Type Setting: This feature tailors the DDX371 according to the type of front speakers in your vehicle. You may select Standard (for speakers with a general diameter), Narrow (for speakers with a small diameter), Middle (for speakers with a medium diameter), or Wide (for speakers with a large diameter).

    Equalizer: Eight EQ curves are preset into memory, allowing you to recall the best preset EQ curve for different types of music. Each preset has its own level settings for bass (100Hz), midrange (1kHz), and treble (12.5kHz). You can choose from the following preset EQ curves - Rock, Pops, Easy, Top 40, Jazz, Natural, Flat, and User. The DDX371 features independent Bass, Treble, and Midrange control when the Preset EQ is in User mode. EQ Pro allows you to adjust the following settings for the Bass, Treble and Mid frequency levels.

    EQ Pro
    Center Frequency Q-Factor Bass Extension Level
    Bass 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 100, 120, or 150 Hz 1.00, 1.25, 1.50, or 2.00 On/Off -8 to +8
    Midrange 0.5k, 1.0k, 1.5k, or 2.0k Hz 1.00 or 2.00 N/A
    Treble 10.0k, 12.5k, 15.0k, or 17.5k Hz N/A N/A
    Note: You can store bass, middle and treble tone settings for each source (Disc, Tuner, AV, USB, iPod, and Pandora).

    Sound Enhancements: The head unit provides further sound enhancements for your car audio system.

    • Loudness: This function enhances low and high frequencies to make the sound clearer lower volumes.
    • Volume Offset: The level of each source may be independently adjusted to prevent radical leaps in output volume when switching from one source to another. The available settings range from -15 to +6.
    • Dynamic Range: The dynamic range can be adjusted by selecting either Normal, Wide or Dialog. Dialog makes the total sound volume become larger as compared with Wide and Normal, allowing you to listen to the movie's dialogue more clearly. This is effective only on Dolby Digital software.

    Source Beep: The in-dash receiver provides an audible beep to confirm source selection. This function can be turned On or Off.

    AV Connection

    Dual A/V Inputs: The Kenwood DDX371 DVD receiver is fitted with two rear-panel minijack (3.5mm) audio/video inputs to connect external AV sources, such as a game system, Blu-ray player, or TV tuner. The rear-panel AV input labeled "AV-IN2" also serves as the input for Kenwood's proprietary KCA-IP202 iPod video cable.

    Camera Input: The unit features a composite video input for connecting an optional rear view camera, such as the Kenwood CMOS-220 (113CMOS220, sold separately). The video from this connection can be set to display when switched to this input, or display the rear view camera video automatically when the vehicle is shifted into Reverse gear. The purple/white wire (attached to the rear chassis) must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching. Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.5 seconds. Audio from your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.

    A/V Output (Dual Zone): The unit features a composite video and 3.5mm audio jack to output A/V signals to an optional monitor and headphone system in the rear of your vehicle. You can select between a 16:9, 4:3 LB, or 4:3 PS Aspect Ratio for the unit's video output to match your connected monitor. The audio/video source which you can output to a separate monitor and headphone system depends on the current source that is being played back on the Kenwood DVD receiver.

    DVD Receiver Source A/V Output Source
    DVD DVD, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    Tuner/SiriusXM (optional tuner required) DVD, USB, iPod, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    USB USB, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    iPod iPod, AV-IN1, or Off
    Pandora AV-IN1, or Off
    AV-IN1/AV-IN2 DVD, USB, iPod, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    Note: The volume of the A/V output will be controlled by your rear entertainment system.

    Remote Control

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM 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). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    Optional Remote Control: The optional Kenwood KNA-RCDV331 IR wireless remote control (113RCDV331, sold separately) unit is designed to operate this Kenwood multimedia 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 your compatible Kenwood head unit within direct line of sight.

    I dont like using the bluetooth all the time. Two reasons 1. Theres a slight difference in sound quality 2. If i can charge my phone and enjoy my music at the sane time i would like too. Also james, i didnt ask your opinion on galaxy, so if you dont want to help, just dont say anything. [ Colby  Feb 10, 2015 ]
    I still use my old galaxy s2 which connects just fine. I haven't tried connecting a s5, sorry. [ Curt  Feb 09, 2015 ]
    I don't currently use a usb for anything, but if you are using it for music, just use the bluetooth feature. Other than that if you just have to use the usb, get an Iphone. [ James  Feb 09, 2015 ]
    It could be the share settings fit the blue tooth on your phone [ KEVIN  Feb 09, 2015 ]
    The system comes with a USB connection but the Samsung S5 should connect easily via Bluetooth or USB. I had the S5 until my dog destroyed it and now have the LG G2 and that is also easy to connect. [ DAVID  Feb 09, 2015 ]

    I'm not 100% sure but I think there is a kit you can get for it but I think if you have a iphone 4 or 4s you can down load Idrive or motion pro gps and it plays through the screen of the kenwood [ NOAH S  Feb 02, 2015 ]

    It does mine is set to only come on when in reverse. [ KENNETH  Jan 12, 2015 ]
    Yes. There is a reverse wire on the head unit, and you tap that into a wire that goes to the brake light circuit. Works perfect, as I have 2 of these head units with the CMOS220 back up cameras. [ JAMES  Jan 12, 2015 ]
    I believe there is a way to do so I just havent tried to do it yet [ JASON D  Jan 12, 2015 ]
    You have to have Bluetooth device turned up to or almost to max. Control volume with the head unit. This is normal. If you connect via usb, device volume has no effect. [ Curt  Jan 04, 2015 ]
    I have an iPhone 6 and before I had a 4 and they both worked fine. Make sure volume is turned up on your phone, and check the settings on the radio. Or take it to a stereo shop they will tell you. I'm pretty sure there is some kind of bluetooth setting they had to do on mine that fixed that problem. [ LINDSEY  Dec 28, 2014 ]
    No, its normal... the Bluetooth is connected to the device volume. [ STEVEN  Dec 27, 2014 ]

    For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Krissy  Dec 02, 2014 ]  Staff
    It is on a extension that is long enough that reaches to the front of the dash I hope that helps [ NOAH S  Dec 01, 2014 ]
    I think there should be a usb cable that you can route somewhere outside of the dash so you can access it. It should be done when the unit is installed [ DUANE  Dec 01, 2014 ]
    Yes, I have played music saved on my phone and from Pandora on an IPhone and Samsung Galaxy S5 using Bluetooth with no problem. The deck has more features for IPhone though. [ THOMAS  Nov 30, 2014 ]
    Yes through Bluetooth. [ JOSHUA  Nov 29, 2014 ]
    I have an iPhone 4s and yes I can connect my phone through Bluetooth to play pandora and listen to music from my phone. [ Shawn  Nov 29, 2014 ]
    Yes if your phone has Bluetooth you can connect it to radio that way to play your music Pandora or YouTube music and sound through radio [ JASON D  Nov 29, 2014 ]
    Yes, it's Bluetooth . [ TED  Nov 29, 2014 ]
    Yes. I play the music from my phone using the Bluetooth every day. [ JAMES  Nov 29, 2014 ]
    It will not display but the audio will play through speakers if have it Bluetooth to your phone [ JASON D  Oct 24, 2014 ]
    I'm not sure you can get it to display on the head unit but I use google maps audio via blue tooth no problem. [ RYAN  Oct 24, 2014 ]

    You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Krissy  Oct 20, 2014 ]  Staff
    We've used ours to Bluetooth stream pandora as well as use the connector to play other online feeds. There is more functionality using the Bluetooth pandora feed vs the cable connection. My main thing with the radio is the small numbers for the tund station and clock. It's my wife's car so I don't mess with the featurs as much. [ CHRISTOPHER D.  Sep 23, 2014 ]
    Yes you can. Pandora and others are very easy. [ ALAN  Sep 21, 2014 ]
    The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. You can check the compatibility of your vehicle here: http://www.crutchfield.com/g_118900/Steering-Wheel-Audio-Control-Adapters.html?tp=3405 For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Jeff  Sep 18, 2014 ]  Staff
    Yes I use mine all the time. You'll just use your Bluetooth to control it through your car or visa versa. [ Amanda  Sep 16, 2014 ]
    I do not think that you can [ Chad  Sep 15, 2014 ]
    Yes, you can listen through the Bluetooth audio option. The controls will still go through your phone as this won't work like a native app through the radios interface (ex. The Pandora app) [ Justin  Sep 15, 2014 ]
    This radio has Bluetooth to stream music but it goes have a setting for Spotify [ ronald  Sep 15, 2014 ]
    Yes, but you can only control Spotify through your phone, and not the head unit. [ Justin  Sep 15, 2014 ]
    Yes You can listen to spotify over Bluetooth, but there is no app for spotify on the Deck itself, only Pandora. [ Nathan  Sep 15, 2014 ]
    It won't have the option on the display, but I have been able to stream any audio source from my phone via Bluetooth or usb, so it should work fine. [ Nathan  Sep 15, 2014 ]

    I have an 05 Sierra, fit fine. The bracket in the back is close, but it fits. [ Nathan  Sep 15, 2014 ]
    I bought it for a 2012 Camaro and I had to purchase a special kit for it. In my opinion the kit look better than the factory. But be aware I constantly loose my satellite signal for my XM radio. [ RON  Sep 12, 2014 ]
    Not at all! Towards the back of the stock radio where it rests on the plastic there is tab that you have to break off. I took a pair of pliers back there and twisted it off and had no problems fitting it! [ Ryan  Sep 05, 2014 ]
    There is a bracket behind the radio that it attaches to. It's plastic. In order for the new radio to fit you have to cut it out. It's very easy. [ Charles  Sep 05, 2014 ]
    What I found out is that there is a certain navigation app from your phones app store. For the I phone I think it was about 55.00 and once you ibstall the app it then displays from your phone to the kenwood unit. If i remember correctly the name of the app should be in your units owners manual Hope this helps. [ Doug  Sep 05, 2014 ]
    Ive looked up this there isnt a ddx4191hd but the ddx419hd and its not but with bluetooth you can use your phone [ MICHAEL  Sep 05, 2014 ]
    Yes, you would have to buy the kenwood module for the navigation for that unit [ Michael  Sep 05, 2014 ]

    Yes, you can change the background image [ JOSHUA  Aug 30, 2014 ]
    Yes you can. You can ajust to any color in the spectrum. Or apply you own jpeg file. [ KYLE  Aug 30, 2014 ]
    Not unless you upload a pic from USB. Only downfall I have with the Kenwood unit [ JASON D  Aug 30, 2014 ]
    I can't really say the only am station I listen to is here in town [ NOAH S  Aug 18, 2014 ]
    We've had no issues with the am or fm reception. My main issue and it's a small one is the size of the radio station display is rather small and off in the corner. [ CHRISTOPHER D.  Aug 17, 2014 ]

    I have an Iphone, I press the "telephone" button on the unit and then I voice dial using SIRI. Works great. [ RICHARD  Aug 12, 2014 ]
    You can program the voice/TEL button below the volume to be a "long press" button. Assuming you have an iPhone and it is paired you can long press the voice/TEL button and it acts the same as if you pressed the siri button on your iphone. at that point just ask "call Joe Smith" or any other command you would ask. Look in the manual for setting that up. Mine was set up for the back up camera and I changed it to voice. See pages 37 and 48 of the manual. Good luck! I think this radio is pretty nice. [ Chris  Aug 09, 2014 ]
    Seems to be a split decision. [ Kris  Jul 23, 2014 ]
    Have not tried that yet but have found music through iPhone Bluetooth does not play in stereo so problably not [ MIKE  Jul 23, 2014 ]
    Thanks for the insight. [ Kris  Jul 21, 2014 ]
    I use GoogleMaps on my iPhone 5S and it plays through the speakers. [ JOSHUA T  Jul 21, 2014 ]
    No, it will not. [ Troy  Jul 21, 2014 ]
    I believe that the sound will but the picture will not show up on screen. I listen to YouTube music videos via bluetooth but you just don't watch on screen [ JASON D  Jul 21, 2014 ]

    No extra cables needed, just have to connect wire that goes to park break to any ground on vehicle. It just needs to have return signal to play video at all times. Blue tooth works great just takes a minute to connect. I have this reciever and have no negatives yet [ Shawn  Jun 13, 2014 ]
    This unit does not support streaming video, only audio. [ Troy  Jun 12, 2014 ]
    You can only stream audio. You can use YouTube videos to stream music via blue tooth but no images will be transferred. [ RYAN  Jun 12, 2014 ]
    Thanks that's what I needed to know I want to stream netflix for passengers during roadtrips [ Mike  Jun 12, 2014 ]
    I can stream music and make hands free calls using Bluetooth. You can use MP3 formatted movies through the USB input but I don't think you can Bluetooth video. I have played the audio from YouTube through Bluetooth but there is no video [ ROBERT  Jun 12, 2014 ]
    I don't have the Garmin Street pilot app on my phone.. [ KURT  Jun 09, 2014 ]
    We are not using nav. We would have to buy something else for the unit. [ BRIAN D  Jun 08, 2014 ]
    There is no navigation on this unit. [ David and Nancy  Jun 08, 2014 ]
    There is no navi on this unit [ KEVIN  Jun 08, 2014 ]
    There's no navigation in this unit. [ Dustin  Jun 08, 2014 ]
    Yes and also external monitors I hope this helps [ NOAH S  Jun 05, 2014 ]
    Yes you can. It's very easy! [ ANDREW  Jun 04, 2014 ]
    Yes [ LINDSEY  Jun 04, 2014 ]
    Yes [ PIERRE  Jun 03, 2014 ]
    Yes you can. There is an input for camera. [ MARC  Jun 03, 2014 ]
    I think so but not positive. I thought I saw something about it in the owners manual, you may want to look it up online. [ ALFRED  Jun 03, 2014 ]
    Yes any with a rca will work. [ KYLE  Jun 03, 2014 ]
    You may want to reset your radio by pressing the triangle button. WARNING doing so you will loose all preset adjustments you've made to your treble, bass, mid, but you can reset those after trying the reset button. [ KURT  Jun 09, 2014 ]
    Hi Alan, I wish I could help but I am using an iPhone 4 and I use a different cable with mine so the art work shows up no problem. [ KENNETH  Jun 03, 2014 ]
    On some of my songs it does show artwork. I think it has to do with Itunes. How you add songs to your library. Try updating your Itunes library. ( I believe its called getting artwork or something like that. Hope this helps. [ Wylie  Jun 03, 2014 ]
    They make a cable for the iPhone 4 that shows art work and stream video from iPhone. I use a droid it shows mine. You may need a iPhone 5 adapter cable. [ ROBERTO  Jun 02, 2014 ]
    I have the iPhone 5, for music thebluetioth streams music from my phone flawless to the headunit. The hand free calling over Bluetooth works good too. The problem with video is the iPhone puts out HDMI and the head unit video can't display HDMI. So I an watch YouTube on the phone and the sound will Bluetooth to the unit but not video. Also the pandora from phone to unit works great. Don't know about sound hound [ Gene  May 13, 2014 ]
    It works fine with 5s. Just set the AV input to AV-IN2 not iPod. (This isn't in the manual, found out through Crutchfield advisor.) Hope this helps. Love the unit by the way. [ JOSHUA T  May 13, 2014 ]
    The DDX371 supports audio only on Apple devices that use a Lightning cable. So, no video playback, including GPS via APP mode. To use APP mode features (Pandora, iPod mode) you will need to purchase the Kenwood KCA-IP202 iPod Video Cable, and the Apple Lightning to 30-pin adapter. You can play music from your iPhone 5 series via Bluetooth if you don't plan to use APP mode. [ Troy  May 12, 2014 ]
    Idk about using a cable to play your music with iPhone 5 I had a iPhone 4s and could hook up to the factory cable from the unit and use like a ipod and control everything off the head unit but I also set up bluetooth and it worked just as good like that [ JASON D  May 12, 2014 ]
    I have an iPhone 5. I use a standard USB changing cable plugged into the USB port cable on the unit. I can run my Pandora app and my music library from the unit and also listen to slacker radio. I have no issues [ ROBERT  May 12, 2014 ]

    I only have an iPhone so I cannot answer your question. Sorry. [ Jason  Apr 30, 2014 ]
    I have two issues with this product. When using BlueTooth, the unit's mic does not work. When using the USB, there is no audio. Going to call Crutchfield about getting a replacement. If BlueTooth and USB work, your s4 should be compatible. [ ALBERT  Apr 28, 2014 ]
    Yes. I have been able to pair my S4 to this radio. Phone and bluetooth work great. Just finished installation this weekend. Pandora works via bluetooth as well. I don't have any music downloaded to my phone so I have not been able to test this feature. Contacts from my phone snyced as well for eay calling. Overall very satisfied. Purchased Clarion backup camera as well. Great clarity. Thinking about purchasing again for another vehicle. [ ERIC  Apr 28, 2014 ]
    Unfotunately, I have not had it installed yet so I am unable to answer your question. Stereo install scheduled for the end of the week and will be glad to a adress question once I have some time with the stereo. Brian [ Brian  Apr 27, 2014 ]
    Hi pelky, I just recently purchased this and installed it in my 2002 passat wagon under 2 weeks ago. It works with both my galaxy note 3 and my fiance's iphone 5 through bluetooth (calls, streaming audio, and pandora) even though my note 3 wasn't listed. I also have an extended auxiliary cable hooked to the back of the unit so that I can utilize my ipod that does not have bluetooth. Hope that helps! Brandon [ Brandon  Apr 27, 2014 ]
    From everything I have read I would say yes. You will do everything through Bluetooth. I use it that way with my cell phone and it works great. I couldn't be happier with this unit. [ Charles  Apr 27, 2014 ]
    can you give the actual size of the radio height x width, [ bruno  Aug 26, 2014 ]
    Yes [ NOAH S  Apr 29, 2014 ]
    Yes it does. No problems with anything on this radio, love it. The sirius goes in and out, but I am calling sirius about that. [ David and Nancy  Apr 28, 2014 ]
    I think so. The person I bought the radio for had a Samsung and the Bluetooth worked [ DUANE  Apr 28, 2014 ]
    Yes it will work [ noe  Apr 28, 2014 ]
    Yes. I have a Galaxy Note 2 and it works with that as well. [ Dustin  Apr 27, 2014 ]
    Works with my S3..... don't see why it wouldn't work on your S4. [ ERIC  Apr 27, 2014 ]
    Works fine with mine. Galaxy G4 won't push song info from Pandora on any of my bluetooth devices.. May just be a setting. [ TYLER  Apr 27, 2014 ]
    Yes it does. I too use the Galaxy S4 and it works perfect. [ Jacob  Apr 27, 2014 ]
    no [ David and Nancy  Apr 28, 2014 ]
    oops sorry, wrong radio, unknown on dual zone. sorry.... [ DAVID  Apr 16, 2014 ]

    I do not know. I would think if your using a USB drive I might. [ KEVIN  Apr 14, 2014 ]
    My iPhone 5s will not play any sound over my speakers when connected through the USB Apple brand lightning cable. I can see all my songs, artists ect from the stereo and it will even show the current song playing and the time of the song moving but no sound at all. Any Ideas? Everything else on the radio works fine, just no sound via USB Apple lighting cable. [ Adam  Apr 28, 2014 ]
    I did not install the rearview camera however my understanding is that NO, you have the rearview image only when the vehicle is in park or reverse and only one display function at a time. In fact, I was on the phone with Sirius trying to activate my subscription on the new radio and was unable to switch to the radio while using bluetooth for the phone. So I had to shut off bluetooth and use my phone separately in order to switch over to the Sirius tuner and change the channel to verify the signal was sent properly and the system active while on the phone. I have not read through the entire manual to determine whether it is possible to use bluetooth handsfree calling and access the other radio features but in my experience I couldn't do so. Also - the mounting brackets sent for my vehicle fit the vehicle, but the screws that were included to attach the bracket to the radio were too short so I had to purchase separate screws from Home Depot in order to connect the brackets to the radio. I wasn't too happy having to drive to the store with my dash all torn apart. [ DAVID  Apr 09, 2014 ]

    Ordering the Wireless Remote control for the DDX 371 .I like to try it.Bu I am not very sastifield the DDX 371 and the RadioPRO 5 ..The Steering Wheel Control It's NOT working . All the WIRS ARE CONNECTED ACCORDING WITH THE INSTRUCTION . WHY...? . [ NELSON WAI  Apr 10, 2014 ]
    I believe the head unit is compatible with all bluetooth devices although I don't have your specific phone. But with bluetooth you have limited functionality, meaning everything has to be controlled from your phone and it may not display all of your information on the screen. If you have an iphone / ipod and run a direct connection (i.e. a 2.0 cable) you will have additional functionality, and be able to control your music and see your music library from the head unit. Hope that helps. [ DERREK  Apr 08, 2014 ]

    I actually bought it and installed for a friend that had an I phone and now has an android . I used my iPhone to try it out . With pandora and I pod through the USB cable it started automatically . When we used the android through Bluetooth you had to wait till it connected then I think we had to press play to start pAndora . Sorry I don't know about Bluetooth and the iPhone because I never connected my iPhone to it. Seemed like a pretty good radio though. [ DUANE  Mar 24, 2014 ]
    The iPhone is connected by USB and it also charges it. Thats why I bought it. Once your phone is set to bluetooth, the phone works great. I don't bluetooth music cause I want to charge it as play it. [ ANTONIO  Mar 24, 2014 ]
