Digital media receiver (Factory Refurbished)
Our take on the Kenwood KMM-BT308U by Crutchfield's Jon Paulette
No discs needed
Tired of those scratched-up CDs taking up space in your car? With Kenwood's KMM-BT380U digital media receiver, you can ditch the discs and enjoy music stored on a variety of devices. Built-in Bluetooth® means you can stream your music wirelessly, plus you'll enjoy the convenience and safety of hands-free calling.
Kenwood's engineers packed this receiver with plenty of features, and, more amazingly, they made it all fit into a "short body" design that fits into almost any vehicle. This app-friendly receiver works with iPhones and Android devices, so you'll be able to stream your favorite Internet radio stations. If your iPhone is equipped with Siri® Eyes Free functionality, anything you can do with your phone can be done with your receiver. For Android users, Kenwood's Music Control app allows you to enjoy a variety of search and playback features.
Plenty of ways to play
Of course, you can also access the MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, and FLAC files stored in your device using the dedicated "search" and "return" buttons. Handy tools like AppMode, Alphabet, Percentage Skip, and Related Search will help you find your music fast. If you play music using your iPod®, you can plug your player (with optional cable) into the front-panel USB input to enjoy Internet radio on Pandora, iHeartRadio, Aupeo! or TuneIt.
Need even more options? Drive Change allows you to connect a memory card reader or USB hub to the Kenwood's USB input and select music from up to five memory cards or USB flash drives. You can also plug in a thumb drive, or jack an MP3 player into the front-panel AUX input. No matter what you're playing, Kenwood's Drive EQ technology will compensate for wind and road noise to achieve maximum sound quality. And with the 13-digit LCD display, it's a lot easier to see song titles and channel information.
This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.

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:
- Hands-Free Communication: HFP 1.5 (Hands Free Profile), OPP 1.1 (Object Push Profile), PBAB 1.0 (Phone Book Access Profile).
- 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 KMM-BT308U. Visit Kenwood's Support Site for a complete list of compatible Bluetooth enabled phones.
Secure Simple Pairing (SSP) + Auto Pairing (for iPhone): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the Kenwood KMM-BT308U without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. When a paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units. You can pair up to five Bluetooth-enabled devices to the Kenwood head unit with a maximum of two Bluetooth phones and one Bluetooth audio player connected at one time (but only one can be used at a time). You can even pair your Apple iPhone by simply connecting it to the Kenwood head unit via USB and following a single prompt on the head unit's display.
Bluetooth Hands-Free Communication: The head unit supports Bluetooth hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The controls of the KMM-BT308U 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. 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 front-panel controls, or setup the head unit to automatically answer the incoming call immediately or after 1-30 seconds. The KMM-BT308U also supports the Call Waiting function, so you can answer another incoming call while suspending the current call you are on. Your compatible cell-phone must also support this feature.

- Voice Dialing: If your mobile phone supports voice recognition, then you can dial out by voice command. Simply speak into the included microphone.
Note: 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. The microphone offers an integrated mounting bracket which can be clipped to your vehicle's sun-visor or taped to your dash. The external microphone measures 0.525" (diameter) x 1.505" (depth).
