Our take on the Kenwood DDX371 by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
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.
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.
I've installed this unit in several customers vehicles and they all say the same thing, it's awesome! It has all the features you need and for a great price. Add Crutchfield's amazing customer service and you can't go wrong!

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.

You cannot view video unless your vehicle's parking brake is fully engaged. If you attempt to view video without the parking brake engaged, the unit's LCD touchscreen will simply display a blue screen and "Parking Off". While your vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view all of the head unit's menu screens/settings, source information, metadata, and album artwork.
2-DIN Chassis: The DDX371 has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double-DIN"), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets, or Euro-mounted using the supplied mounting sleeve. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.
Bluetooth Technology: The Kenwood DDX371 is equipped with built-in Bluetooth (2.1+EDR) allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

- Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.2 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP 1.3 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Kenwood DDX371. Visit Kenwood's Support Site for a complete list of compatible Bluetooth enabled phones
SPP (Secure Simple Pairing): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the Kenwood DDX371 without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. The head unit will even establish pairing automatically with the Apple iPhone (iOS 5.0+), even if the Bluetooth function is deactivated on the device. Once a device is paired, the registered Bluetooth device will automatically connect to the receiver when it is in close proximity (up to 30') to the receiver. You can register up to five Bluetooth-enabled devices with the Kenwood head unit (only one paired phone can be used at a time).
Hands-Free Communication w/ External Mic: The head unit supports Bluetooth hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The touchscreen controls of the DDX371 can be used to dial a number, answer an in-coming call, or end a call. The unit also includes an external microphone (featuring adjustable gain), so you can carry on your side of the conversation while listening to the caller through your vehicles speakers (All or Front only). During a conversation, you can switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode.
- Answering a Call: When a call comes in, a ring-tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker and the caller's name or phone number will be displayed. You can answer the call from the head unit's touchscreen, or setup the head unit to automatically answer the incoming call immediately in 5 seconds.

phone number in one of the following ways:
- Entering a Phone Number: Allows you to directly dial a phone number up to 32 digits from the head unit's touchscreen.
- Speed (Preset) Dialing: Allows you to register up to 6 phone numbers for quick dialing. The preset numbers can be accessed from the head unit's touchscreen.

External Microphone: The Kenwood DDX371 includes an external microphone to carry on your side of your phone conversation and voice command dialing. The external wired microphone offers improved audio quality versus an integrated microphone, so you can be heard easier over noisy traffic and road noise. You can adjust the volume level and noise cancellation of the microphone without affecting the other sources. The external microphone features an attached 10' cable terminated by a right-angle 3.5mm connector which plugs into the mic input on the rear-panel of the head unit.

All Siri functions including hands-free calling, music search, setting reminders, text-messaging, audible navigation, and more can be done through the DDX371 and its microphone. The head unit's LCD touchscreen will only display hands-free calling and Bluetooth audio information (all other functions of Siri are only audible through the Kenwood DDX371; visual data will still need to be viewed from your iPhone device).

The USB port enables playback of MP3, WMA, AAC, and WAV audio files; as well as JPEG still-picture files stored on a compatible USB memory device. The DDX371 also supports video playback of MPEG1/MPEG2 video files from a connected portable USB MSC device.

If you only desire audio playback, you can use Kenwood's KCA-IP102 iPod cable (113KCIP102, sold separately) or the dock connector-to-USB cable that comes with your Apple device to connect your iPod/iPhone to the DDX371.
- Lightning Connector: If you have a newer iPod/iPhone with the Lightning-connector, you can use the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device to connect your iPod/iPhone to the Kenwood DDX371 for audio playback only. You'll be able to listen to stored music and music apps on your Lightning-connector Apple device through the Kenwood DVD receiver. Video playback is not supported.
Note: The unit's rear-panel AV input must be set to "iPod" in order to playback audio/video from your connected iPod/iPhone, using the KCA-IP202 cable. The unit's rear-panel AV input must be set to "AV-IN2" in order to use the Kenwood KCA-IP102 iPod cable or the cable that came with your Apple device for audio playback only.
iPod/iPhone Control: The Kenwood DDX371 lets you control your iPod/iPhone from the head unit's touchscreen, your iPod/iPhone's touchscreen/clickwheel, or a downloaded app.
- Head Unit Control Mode: The Kenwood head unit allows you to navigate your iPod's music library by Playlist, Artists, Album, Song, Genre, Song, Podcast, or Audiobook. Your iPod's video library can be searched by Video Playlist, Movie, Music Video, TV Show, Video Podcast, Rented Movie, or iTunesU. You can then search each of these categories using the head unit's touchscreen slider function (categories will be listed in alphabetical order). The head unit also supports basic playback functions such as Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, Previous/Next Track and Repeat/Random of your connected iPod/iPhone. Newer iPod/iPhones with iOS 6.0+ will still allow you to navigate stored music and movies from the Apple device's touchscreen; older iPod/iPhone devices will be locked during connection.
- iPod/App Control Mode: The iPod/App control mode allows you to navigate stored music and movies from your older Apple device (iOS 5.1.1 and earlier). You'll still have access to basic playback controls (like Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Reverse, Previous/Next Track) from the head unit, but advanced navigation functions will be locked. The iPod/App mode also lets you listen to your favorite music apps, streamed to your 30-pin or Lightning-connector iPhone (iOS 3.0+) through the Kenwood head unit and your vehicle's speakers. You can even watch video on the Kenwood DVD receiver's touchscreen from select streaming movie apps (like Netflix) downloaded on your iPhone 4/4S (iOS 4.0+), via the Kenwood KCA-IP202 iPod video cable (sold separately). Not all apps will be compatible and control will be limited.
Note: Access to your iPhone's downloaded applications will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone to connect to the Internet.
Song/Artist Info & Album Art: In Head Unit Control mode, the DDX371 will display your iPod/iPhone's stored music information including Track number, Elapsed playing time, Song/Album title, Artist name, and Album art. There is no music information displayed when this unit is set to iPod/App Control mode. Instead, the head unit will display "iPhone App and iPod Control Mode" (song/artist information will need to viewed on your iPod/iPhone's LCD screen).
Battery Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. This unit does not charge the iPad. If your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.
Garmin App: In addition, the optional KCA-IP202 iPod cable (113KCIP202, sold separately) allows you to view navigation maps and get audible/visual directions on the DDX371's touchscreen, when the Garmin StreetPilot Onboard USA app ($49.99), and the Vehicle Display Integration in-app option ($49.99) are both downloaded to your connected iPhone (4/4S) or iPad (1/2/3); running iOS 5.1 or later. The Garmin StreetPilot Onboard USA app contains NAVTEQ map data for the United States (lower 49 states); with over a million POIs, turn-by turn directions, lane assist with junction view, traffic updates, and speed limit alerts. Because the map data is downloaded onto your iPhone and does not live on the network, wireless coverage is not required to navigate. Once you have selected your destination on your connected iPhone, your map route will be visible on the DDX371's touchscreen (even with parking brake disengaged) and turn-by-turn directions can be heard through your car stereo speakers. You will continue to use your iPhone's touchscreen to control the Garmin StreetPilot USA app. The screen of your iPhone and the screen of the Kenwood DDX371 may not be identical.
Note: A Garmin StreetPilot Onboard app with North American maps (US, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, USVI, and more) is also available for $59.99.

- Create New Station: New stations can be created based on the current songs or artists playing on Pandora.
- Skip Songs: You can skip song tracks within a station. You cannot skip back to a previous song. Pandora limits the number of skips allowed.
- Thumbs Up/Down: You can give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down to help Pandora personalize stations to suit your preferences.
- Bookmarking: The song or artist currently being played can be bookmarked & stored in your Pandora account.
Note: Access to the Pandora service will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone to connect to the Internet. Pandora is not supported in Canada & only available in the United States.
SiriusXM Ready: The Kenwood DDX371 comes ready for SiriusXM programming with access to XM and Sirius Satellite Radio stations. Thanks to its proprietary SiriusXM Connect port, you can add the optional SXV200V1 SiriusXM Connect tuner and receive more than 150 channels of exclusive programming directly from SiriusXM, via the "SiriusXM All Access" package (subscription required).

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.
|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.
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.
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.

You can't use a custom image from a USB drive. Read the instructions carefully, it says from a DVD screen capture. [ Adam Feb 12, 2015 ]
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 ]

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 ]

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.

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 ]

2 answers How do you use the calling command on this? Specifically, can you say "Call Joe Smith on Cell" and it connects or do you have to say, "Call" and wait for the prompt, say the name, say dial, wait for the device to bring up the correct number/say next entry? Thanks for your help. [ K Aug 08, 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 ]

5 answers Will this stream YouTube and Netflix via Bluetooth, the specs say extra cables for parking required to stream video at all are these included? I plan to stream music via blue tooth calls via Bluetooth and was hoping to stream movies. What additional assessories do I need to accomplish this or should I go with a diff unit? [ Mike Jun 12, 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 ]

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 ]
5 answers I have heard some iPhone users say that their iPhone 5, 5c, or 5s does not work,and I have heard other iPhone users say that it does work. I have an iPhone 5.Will my Apple Lightning Cable or AUX cable (i.e. Monster Aux Cable or any other 3rd party AUX cable) work when i plug them into the rear ports?Or do I have to buy some special adapter like the Pioneer decks.It is not important to me if the deck mirrors my phone or if the deck displays what is on my phone (although that would be nice.Does will it do that?).I just want to be able to play my music and the soundcloud app. [ Cam A. May 12, 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 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 ]

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 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 ]

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 ]
Yes you have to enable the phone in systems or bluetooth you can option it to play pandora and when done you can like or dislike songs as well as change your play list and look for music via genure [ MICHAEL Sep 05, 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 ]

1 answer Unit plays music through ipod flawless, using the kca-ip202 cable through the av input setting. But when I play a movie I can hear it playing but no video. Stays on the blue screen showing the movie timer. If I switch to ipod input I get no sound music or video and screen goes black for video? [ Derek Mar 24, 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 ]
