8 questions already asked

In order to connect an Android phone to the Kenwood's HDMI input, the phone must support MHL and Samsung stopped supporting MHL after the Note 4: The Kenwood does support Android Auto so, you can take advantage of the Android Auto capable apps by connecting your phone to stereo's USB port. [ Ryan  Jun 22, 2017 ]  Staff
If the stereo will accept an HDMI input and will provide it via the analog composite video output, sure, you can connect the external source to the HDMI in on the stereo and the analog A/V output of the stereo to your overhead monitor. You would not use the KCA-MH100 cable in this scenario though. For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly by phone or through our online chat service: I hope that helps. My Bio: [ Ryan  Oct 26, 2016 ]  Staff
I'm not sure about the Note 3. I used this cable on a Galaxy S5 and it worked but it's a bit finicky. Not so much the cable but the application in general. [ ERIC B.  Oct 13, 2016 ]
Most likely it will but you will need a 5 to 11 pin adapter on it also. I have the galaxy note edge and it works for me. [ Terry  Oct 13, 2016 ]
No [ Karl W.  Oct 12, 2016 ]
there is some software to install for my dnx. i did get it working but going to the phone was easier for me [ edward  Oct 12, 2016 ]
cable worked but i still needed an adapter for my S3. I found that mirroring ain't what i thought it would be. waste of time for me. HUMBLY SPEAKING OF COURSE. [ edward  Oct 12, 2016 ]
It should. I used it for my note 4. [ CHRIS  Oct 12, 2016 ]
You need to buy a 5 pin to 11 pin adapter for this to work with the Galaxy S5. This is a 5 pin cable but the Galaxy S5 has an 11 pin port. You can get the adapters pretty cheap. The last Galaxy phone to use the 5 pin port was the S2. The S3, S4, & S5 have the 11 pin port. The S6 does not have mhl functionality at all. [ Derek  Jan 13, 2016 ]

Hello Michael, my understanding is that you canniot mirror any Android to these models. That ability I believe starts with the 4-digit models. I hopes this helps. [ John  Sep 02, 2015 ]
HI Michael, I'm sorry but I can't be of any help. I basically use my dnx692 for the navigation and the dvd player. So I personally don't even know how to do it. I wish I could be of some assistance to your question. Good luck, jeff C [ JEFFERY  Aug 18, 2015 ]
The short answer is yes, however you will only be able to mirror the phone image over. If you want to use the DNX screen as a touch screen for what is mirrored from your phone, I would recommend using this cable. It does both mirroring and touchscreen functionality for older 5 pin android smart phones. you will have to download the Kenwood Smartphone Control app in the android Play store to do that. I hope to have a video on youtube showing how to setup and use this so hit me back on my email if that is something you'd like to see. Karl [ Karl  Aug 18, 2015 ]
Based on my research, which I believe to be correct, the Galaxy S2 was the last phone to have the 5 pin port. The S3, S4, & S5 all have the 11 pin port. The S6 does not have mhl functionality at all. You need the 5 pin to 11 pin adapter because the cable has 5 pins but most modern phones have an 11 pin port. [ Derek  Jan 13, 2016 ]
My Note 3 needed a 5 pin to 11 pin adapter, no display without it. You can also only view your phone display, no controlling your phone from Kenwood head unit. S4 and up probably need adapter also. [ KEVIN  May 28, 2014 ]
Do not buy this wire buy the Samsung adapter better [ Ernesto  May 28, 2014 ]
Thanks .Everything okay. [ artur  May 28, 2014 ]
