About the JVC KW-Z1000W

Dave Delamere

Floating infotainment hub

Similar to a heads-up display on a jet, JVC's KW-Z1000W digital media receiver uses its impressive 10" touchscreen display as a big helper on your drive. Its easy-to-read display shows off familiar smartphone interfaces by using wired or wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ — incredibly handy for navigation, music, and podcast apps. Even when you're simply using the JVC's display, you can customize it with the look that works best for you. And if you're planning to integrate factory and add aftermarket cameras, you can connect up to four cameras to this receiver. JVC ups the ante with this receiver's built-in, multi-user Bluetooth®, high-res music capability, and lots of tweaks to refine (or even redefine) your entire system's sound.

Versatile mounting

The KW-Z1000W receiver's chassis fits in most double-DIN dash openings, and since there's no disc player, the mounting depth shouldn't be a major issue for most vehicles. Once you've mounted the chassis in your dash opening, you can choose to fix the display's mount from four vertical mounting positions, as well as two depth positions, to free up other vehicle controls and vents in your ride. Once the screen is fixed into place, you can also manually tilt the display forward and back to compensate for angled dashes and glare.

Check your dash!

Important Note — The screen measures 10.313" x 7.125". Before ordering, check for possible interference with your dash, your shifter, and all other controls.

Multi-talented display

This receiver provides options to "mirror" your Android™ or iPhone® display directly on the touchscreen display. And by using this JVC's wireless connection, your smartphone links right up and you're ready to roll with all the voice-control wonderfulness that Android Auto and Apple CarPlay bring to driving. (Find out more at and

And when your phone needs some juice, plug it in, and you'll still get access to all your navigation, phone calls, weather, text messages, and music through simple controls and voice commands you're familiar with — all while your battery charges. If you prefer to stay wireless and you have a compatible phone, you can also charge up with a wireless Qi charger.

JVC KW-Z1000W digital multimedia receiver

This receiver's big display makes it easy to find your turn.

Let's get to the music (and talk, and news, and sports)

Into your high-res music library? The KW-Z1000W will play high-res music files stored on a USB drive. Using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto will open up even more internet-based music, talk radio, and podcast apps for you, as well. If you're looking for radio stations that won't fade away, add a SiriusXM tuner to this JVC to enjoy satellite radio's deep programming from coast to coast. And if you have local stations that broadcast in HD, this receiver's built-in HD Radio tuner will deliver super-clean sound and display artist, song, and station info.

Keeping things wireless with Bluetooth

Since yours is probably not the only phone used in your vehicle, the KW-Z1000W enables you to pair two Bluetooth-equipped phones and quickly switch between them for hands-free calling. And when you're streaming audio, JVC's Streaming DJ feature lets you pair five phones so everybody can pick their favorite tunes (remember to share). Load up the JVC Remote app on your phone, and passengers can control some basic functions on this receiver wirelessly. This JVC also includes LDAC, which means you can stream high-res sound via Bluetooth with select Android phones.

System expansion and settings to the max

For those who like total control over their sound, JVC included a 13-band equalizer with a built-in digital signal processor. You can also use the built-in time alignment to adjust the timing of sound to your system's speakers to make sure you're center stage for all your music. JVC's K2 technology helps improve the sound of digital music files with lower bit rates. The KW-Z1000W also includes three pairs of 5-volt RCA preamp outputs that provide an ultra-clean signal when you add amplifiers to your system.

iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras

The KW-Z1000W offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included). In a wide selection of vehicles, this module lets you keep factory features that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You'll also be able to check out engine performance data and other vehicle info on the JVC's big screen, even radar info from a compatible detector. Once you've identified your vehicle, you'll see the iDatalink module, and matching harness specific to your vehicle, offered on the way to the Shopping Cart if it's compatible.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

You'll need a wired connection to your parking brake to access settings and other features on this receiver. Your parking brake must be connected and set in order to view video on its screen.

Some states and localities prohibit or restrict the use of video and information displays in vehicles — it is your responsibility to see if any restrictions or prohibitions apply in your area.

    Floating Display Design

    Two-Piece Configuration The JVC KW-Z1000W digital multimedia receiver features a two-piece floating display configuration with an external 10.1" capacitive touchscreen monitor and a separate Double-DIN (4") source unit. Separating the large touchscreen monitor from the chassis allows the KW-Z1000W to be installed in a standard Double-DIN (4") dash opening. The Double-DIN (4") source units mounts in the dash and the 10.1" touchscreen monitor attaches to the front of the source unit using the included hardware and integrated connector (dash kit, wiring harness, interface module, adapters are required and sold separately).

    Note: The JVC KW-Z1000W will not fit in some vehicles with a Double-DIN opening due to its large 10.1" touchscreen monitor interfering with your vehicle's factory equipment on the dash.

    Floating Touchscreen Monitor: Depending on your vehicle's factory radio location and the location of other factory equipment, you may need to adjust the mounting position of the touchscreen monitor in order to prevent impairment of vehicle driving operations. The floating touchscreen monitor offers depth, height, and tilt adjustments to ensure the best fit and usability in your vehicle's dash. The touchscreen monitor measures 10.3125" (w) x 7.125" (h) x 2.375" (d) - including integrated connector and mounting bracket.

    • Depth Adjustment: The depth adjustment lets you move the floating monitor forward or backward 0.8125", allowing more or less space between the monitor and your vehicle's dash kit and dash for a better fit.
    • Height Adjustment: The floating monitor can be adjusted up or down 1.5625" to prevent interference with climate controls, vents, and other factory equipment on your vehicle's dash for better fit and operation..
    • Tilt Adjustment: You can adjust the angle of floating monitor for better usability and visibility. In addition to its vertical 90 degree angle (default), the monitor can be tilted -10 degrees backward or +45 degrees forward.


    • The depth, height, and tilt adjustments are all done manually (not electronically).
    • The depth and height adjustments must be made prior to final installation and cannot be done during operation.
    • See the included Installation Manual for specific dimensions at each depth, height, and tilt setting.

    Double-DIN Source Unit: The included source unit fits in a standard 4" Double-DIN opening (applicable kit, harness, etc. will be required and sold separately for your vehicle). Once the source unit is mounted in the dash, the 10.1" touchscreen monitor attaches and connects to the front of the source unit using the included hardware and integrated proprietary connector. All of the JVC KW-Z1000W''s inputs and outputs are found on the rear-panel of the source unit.

    • Chassis: including wiring harness, Bluetooth mic, and USB extension cable connections
      • Width: 7.005"
      • Height: 3.945"
      • Depth: 6.735" (w/o preout connections), 6.785" (w/ preout connections)
    • Nose: including integrated connector and mounting bracket
      • Width: 6.675"
      • Height: 3.805"
      • Depth: 1.125"

    Note: The JVC KW-Z1000W mounts in a Double-DIN (4") opening using the your vehicle's factory brackets or the brackets included with your dash kit (sold separately). The KW-Z1000W does not mount in a dash using a sleeve or cage.

    Touchscreen & Remote Control

    10.1" Capacitive Touchscreen Monitor: The JVC KW-Z1000W features an all-new electrostatic capacitive touch panel and high-definition LCD panel with high luminance white LED backlighting that delivers vivid color, high-contrast, and crisp detail, as well as highly responsive touch operation. This 10.1" widescreen (16:9) electrostatic capacitive touchscreen LCD panel has a high resolution of 1280 (H) x 720 (V) x RGB with 2,764,800 total pixels, a 170° high viewing angle, 600cd/m high brightness, and 900:1 high contrast ratio. The 10.1" touchscreen monitor provides room for more information that is large and easy to see with just a glance. The capacitive touchscreen is highly responsive for simple and intuitive control.

    • Optical Bonding Technology: The screen's optical bonding technology minimizes the refractive light index by bonding the liquid crystal module and the clear panel. It suppresses the reflection of the screen and maintains high visibility. In addition, since optical bonding does not have an air layer between the liquid crystal module and the clear panel, display visibility is not impaired by internal condensation, further enhancing its durability.
    • Gesture Controls: Touchscreen operations include tap, touch & hold, flick left or right, and swipe up or down - very similar to your smartphone or tablet device. In addition to basic touch control, the receiver offers Gesture Control. Gesture Control lets you operate certain functions of the KW-Z1000W by making specific gesture commands on the unit's touchscreen. You can adjust the volume of the multimedia receiver by making a circular motion with your finger on the unit's touchscreen. You'll also be able to navigate your music by simply swiping the touchscreen left/right or up/down.


      • To prevent the display of video from USB, Mirroring, and the AV-input while the vehicle is in motion, the light green wire (within harness) must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. You cannot view video unless your vehicle's parking brake is 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". The parking brake wire must also be connected and the parking brake engaged for certain setup functions and menu options.
      • 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; as well as CarPlay and Android Auto.

    Display Features: The JVC KW-Z1000W offers several unique display features, settings, enhancements, and adjustments.

    • Custom Shortcuts & Favorite Key: You can customize the head unit's Home Screen by rearranging the icons and moving the icons of the twelve most used sources to the first page of the Home Screen. Three programmable shortcut source keys offer a quick jump to your favorite sources from almost any screen. You can also assign your most used function to the unit's "Favorite" touchscreen icon for easier and faster access.
    • Background Color & Wallpapers: You can choose between nine preset background colors - Light Blue, Red, Aqua, Yellow, Orange, Purple, Pink, Dark Blue, or User. The User mode allows you to customize your own background color. In addition, there are ten preset background images (wallpapers) to choose from. The Live Wallpaper feature even lets you synchronize background visuals and color with your music.
    • Display Widgets: You can select from a variety of display widgets - including Clock/Spectrum Analyzer, Current Source Information, Compass, Volume Meter, and Photo Frame. The Photo Frame Widget allows you to download your own still image using the JVC Portal App (for Apple iOS 12.4+ and Android OS 6.0+) and use it as your wallpaper background.
    • Clock & Date: The digital multimedia receiver offers a 12-hour clock & day/month/year display. The clock is visible from any source or menu screen. With your vehicle's key in the accessory or On position, the head unit will continue to display the LCD background image, clock, and button illumination during "AV Off" mode. Pressing the "Power Off" touchscreen icon turns the unit off completely.

    Push-Button Control: In addition to touchscreen and gesture control, the KW-Z1000W features five push-button controls along the bottom edge of the screen. Control functions include Power/Home, Function/Source, Volume Up, Volume Down, and Voice Recognition.

    Dimmer: The dimmer function will dim the head unit's display & front-panel illumination automatically when your vehicle's light switch is turned On, if you have the unit's orange/white "Illumination" wire connected to your vehicle's headlamp circuit. You can also choose to dim the display manually.

    Remote Control: The JVC KW-Z1000W offers compatibility with factory steering wheel controls (adapter sold separately) and is compatible with JVC's IR wireless remote control (sold separately) for added convenience. JVC also offers a remote application which allows you to control the receiver from your smartphone device, and another application that allows you transfer photos from your compatible smartphone device the JVC receiver.

    • Steering Wheel Controls: The head unit features a factory 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).
    • Optional Remote Control: The JVC digital multimedia receiver is compatible with JVC's wireless IR remote control (RM-RK258, sold separately).
    • Remote S App: The JVC Remote S (for Apple iOS 9.0+ and Android OS 5.0+) is an application that will connect and control the in-dash receiver from your compatible Apple or Android device via Bluetooth, like a wireless remote control. You can select source input, as well as command basic playback controls such as Play/Pause or Previous/Next Track from the touchscreen of your compatible smartphone. This application can also display the receiver's source and song/artist information on the screen of your compatible Apple iOS or Android device.
    • JVC Portal App: The JVC Portal App (for Apple iOS 12.4+ and Android OS 6.0+) lets you transfer photos from your compatible smartphone device to the JVC receiver via Bluetooth or USB. You'll also be able to create a slideshow and a customized wallpaper for the receiver

    Android & iPhone Integration

    Built-In WiFi: The JVC KW-Z1000W receiver's built-in Dual-Band (2.4/5GHz) WiFi (802.11a/b/g/n/ac) is utilized for Wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto Wireless, and Wireless Mirroring via Miracast for select Android devices. The built-in WiFi is not designed to be used with WiFi hotspots.

    • GPS Antenna: The included GPS antenna must also be installed for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay navigation maps. The GPS antenna comes with a self-stick pad which mounts it on top of your dash inside the vehicle.
    • Cellular & Data Plan Requirements: Access to CarPlay, Android Auto, and Mirroring apps will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone or Android smartphone to connect to the Internet. Your compatible Apple or Android device will need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, LTE (4G), or WiFi.

    Android Auto Wireless: The JVC KW-Z1000W supports the Android Auto app for select Android smartphones using a wired or wireless connection. A Google or Samsung smartphone with Android OS 10.0+ or any smartphone with Android OS 11.0+ and 5GHz WiFi can utilize Android Auto Wireless with the JVC receiver using the latest version of the Android Auto app, plus a WiFi and Bluetooth connection (both wireless connections must be made; a wired USB connection must be made initially between the Android phone and the JVC receiver to setup Wireless Android Auto). Android smartphones running Lollipop 5.0 or higher can also be connected to the JVC receiver's rear-panel USB port using the included USB extension cable and USB cable that came with your smartphone, plus be paired via Bluetooth. Android Auto extends the Android platform into your car in a way that's purpose-built for driving and automatically brings you useful information and organizes it into a simple on-screen interface that is simple to use in the vehicle. It's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road ahead. Features of Android Auto include -

    • Google Assistant: The JVC receiver enhances your Android Auto experience even more by incorporating Google Assistant using the head unit's external microphone and your car speakers for voice command and text-to-speech, which makes using Android Auto and all of its integrated applications fast, easy, and safe. You will need to press the "mic" button or say "OK Google" to activate the Google Assistant. Use the Google Assistant to make a call, send a message, reply to a message, get driving directions, listen to music, or even control select Google Assistant smarthome enabled devices.
    • Google & Waze Maps: Use Google Maps to get where you're going with on-screen maps, voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance, and more. Select your destination by using the head unit's touchscreen or just say where you want to go through the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology. You can even listen to music from your Android Auto device or other connected source device while using Google Maps. If you prefer, you can switch over to a simpler version of the community-based Waze navigation app (version 4.27 or higher).
    • Phone & SMS: With Android Auto you get access to your contacts and messages through the JVC receiver while keeping your eyes on the road. Use the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology to make a phone call, or have your text-messages read aloud to you while you concentrate on the road ahead; you can even reply to texts via voice command.
    • Music: Access your Android smartphone's music library through the JVC receiver via YouTube Music. You'll be able to browse music like you do on your smartphone with song/artist information display and album art.

    Wireless Apple CarPlay: Apple CarPlay is a smarter, safer in-vehicle interface to operate your iPhone with Lightning Connecter, and is specially designed for driving scenarios. Your iPhone can be connected to the JVC KW-Z1000W wirelessly or via USB. A wireless connection to your compatible iPhone (iOS 9.0+) can be made using the JVC receiver's built-in WiFi (5GHz) and Bluetooth (2.4GHz) - requires both wireless connections. Or, you can choose to connect your compatible iPhone (iOS 7.1+) to the JVC receiver via USB. Your iPhone will need to be connected to the JVC receiver's rear-panel USB port via the included USB extension cable and the Lightning-cable that came with your Apple device or an Apple Certified Lightning-to-USB cable (sold separately). You can control CarPlay from the JVC receiver's touchscreen controls or use Siri to control to control CarPlay with just your voice. You'll be able to use CarPlay to get directions, make phone calls, listen to voice mails, send/receive text messages, select music, and even control Apple HomeKit compatible devices in a way that keeps you focused on the road ahead.

    • Navigation Maps: The power and simplicity of Apple Maps comes to your dashboard; complete with turn-by-turn direction, traffic conditions, and estimated travel time. You can enter a new destination or choose a favorite or recent destination using the head unit's touchscreen or by simply asking Siri. CarPlay can also predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars. If you have iOS 12.0 or newer on your iPhone with the latest version of Google Maps or Waze, you can choose to navigate via the Google Maps or Waze application instead of Apple Maps. Google Maps and Waze do not support Siri voice control, but will have their own proprietary voice control function which has to be accessed through a touchscreen icon on the receiver.
    • Phone & Messages: You'll be able to make calls, return missed calls, and listen to voicemails through the JVC receiver. Siri can also help you do all these things. In addition, Siri can send, read, and reply to your text messages for you; so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving.
    • Music Library: Access your favorite artists, songs, and playlists from Apple Music on your iPhone using the JVC receiver's touchscreen. Or, just tell Siri what you'd like to listen to. The head unit's touchscreen will display song/artist information, as well as album art in the background.
    • Apps: CarPlay also supports additional audio apps that you've downloaded to your iPhone for enjoying music, radio, sports, news, podcasts, & audiobooks (subscriptions and fees may apply). Control these apps from the head unit's touchscreen just like you would from your iPhone. Current supported apps include:
    • Apple HomeKit Compatible: CarPlay now supports control of Apple HomeKit enabled devices (sold separately) through Siri. Using CarPlay in your vehicle, you can ask Siri to close or open your garage door, turn on or off home lighting, increase or decrease the temperature of your thermostat, as well as control select functions of other Apple HomeKit enabled devices and appliances. Click here for a list of compatible Apple HomeKit products.


    • Compatible iPhone models include 12 Mini, 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS Max, XS, XR, X, 8 Plus, 8, 7 Plus, 6S Plus, 6S, and SE. Only one Apple iPhone with CarPlay can be connected at a time. An Apple CarPlay and Android Auto device cannot be connected at the same time. Use a Lightning-to-USB cable that is 6' or less for a wired connection, and avoid using USB extension cables. Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Apple CarPlay is being used with a connected iPhone.
    • Wireless Apple CarPlay works best with a vehicle speed pulse connection. You will need either a radio replacement interface with a vehicle speed pulse connection or you can hardwire the JVC receiver's speed pulse wire to your vehicle's speed pulse wire (this method is much more time consuming and requires more installation experience). Wireless Apple CarPlay can also be used without connecting the vehicle speed pulse. However, location and position accuracy for navigation maps will suffer without the vehicle speed pulse connection.

    • Sound Effects: The KW-Z1000W offers adjustable Sound Effects to provide a better listening experience inside your vehicle. Use the "Space Enhancement" feature to virtually broaden the soundstage inside your vehicle. Use the "Sound Lift" feature to virtually lift the sound to ear level. And use the "Sound Response" feature to virtually make the sound more realistic and live inside your car.

    Volume Level & Bass Management: The digital multimedia receiver offers several volume level adjustments to tailor the audio output of your sources. The KW-Z1000W also provides bass management to get the most impact out of your system.

    • Loudness, Bass Boost & Bass Extension: The Loudness feature boosts low and high frequencies to produce a well-balanced sound at a low volume level. The unit's Bass Boost enhances low bass frequencies at any volume level. There is also a Bass Extension feature which further enhances the unit's bass output on frequencies lower than 62.5Hz.
    • Volume Offset: The input level of each source (other than FM) is adjustable relative to the FM radio volume, so there isn't a significant volume difference when changing sources. Each source is individually adjustable from -15 to +6.

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

    AV/Camera/OEM Connectivity

    AV Input: The JVC KW-Z1000W digital multimedia receiver is outfitted with a rear-panel AV input that consists of a composite video jack and a 3.5mm audio jack. The AV input can be used to connect external audio/video sources such as a game system, Blu-ray player, or TV tuner. The unit's AV input can also be configured to act as a camera input for adding a rear, front, or side camera.

    AV Output (with Dual Zone): The unit features a composite video jack and 3.5mm audio jack to output AV signals to an optional monitor and headphone system. The unit's AV output can be set to AV-In, iPod, USB, or Off. Volume of the second zone can be controlled by the digital multimedia receiver or your rear entertainment system.

    • You cannot select AV-In as the video output source if it is being used for a camera input. You cannot select iPod as the AV output source if it is connected via Bluetooth or Apple CarPlay is connected.
    • If you select iPod as the main source, you cannot select USB as the AV output source. If you select USB as the main source, you cannot select iPod as the AV output source.
    • If you select Bluetooth, HD Radio, Miracast, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto as the main source then you cannot select USB or iPod as the AV output source.
    Note: CarPlay, Android Auto, Miracast, and HDMI cannot be displayed through the receiver's video output.

    4 Camera Inputs: To enable a smarter driving experience, the JVC receiver features 4 camera inputs that allow for the utmost in convenience, flexibility, and safety. With 4 camera inputs, you can connect a backup camera, a front camera, and side (blind spot) cameras. Alternatively, the 4 camera inputs can support several other configurations. Camera switching is available using the receiver' touchscreen controls, or automatically for side cameras when an optional iDatalink Maestro is connected (supported vehicles only).

    • Rear Camera Input w/ Guidelines: The receiver is equipped with a rear camera input that consists of a composite video jack and reverse trigger wire. The video from the rear camera input can be set to display automatically when the vehicle is shifted into Reverse gear (the purple/white wire of the wiring harness must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching). Automatic video switching takes approximately 0.8 seconds. While in reverse, parking guidelines will also appear on-screen making backing up and parking safer and easier.
    • Front Camera Input: There is also a composite video input for connecting a front camera (sold separately), so you can display what's ahead of you on the head unit's touchscreen LCD monitor. The front camera input could also be used as a dash cam input.
    • Additional Camera Inputs: In addition, there is a third composite video camera input for adding a side camera or trailer-towing camera (sold separately). You can also configure the unit's composite video AV input to act as a camera input for a side camera (sold separately) or other camera application.


    • The optional PAC VS41 4 Camera Switcher (sold separately) can be added, allowing each camera to be triggered automatically based on the vehicle's status.
    • The camera feature is meant as a driving aid only; never solely rely on the cameras while driving. In addition to using the cameras, always look around you to make sure everything is clear when making in vehicle maneuvers.

    iDatalink Maestro Compatible: When an Automotive Data Solutions iDatalink Maestro (sold separately) is connected to the JVC receiver, it provides a seamless interface with factory infotainment features such as Satellite Radio, USB Media Player, Bluetooth hands-free and music streaming. Factory driver assistance systems and cameras are also retained and work as they did originally. Parking sensor display and dynamic parking guide lines are also added in supported vehicles on the rear camera screen. Vehicle information such as HVAC, performance information, and TPMS can also be displayed. Radar detector information can also be displayed on the screen when used with a compatible K40 or ESCORT radar detector system (sold separately). Retained factory functions and add-on features will vary by vehicle.

    Note: The iDatalink Maestro is web programmable, which means you'll need to flash the iDatalink Maestro RR interface module with the correct firmware from iDatalink's website. In addition to flashing the iDatalink Maestro module, you'll also need a vehicle specific harness (sold separately). The JVC receiver's OEM Setup menu must also be configured with your compatible vehicle's factory system before initial operation.

    Would we be able to retain Lane watch camera feature on right signal on 2016 Honda Pilot?I don't see a Mastero RR for 2016 pilot and don't know if we can retain lane watch feature without RR module

    Greetings Swamy, and thank you for your question. Unfortunately its not just this stereo, but any aftermarket stereo for that matter. You would lose a lot of factory features if you replace the factory radio. Some 2016 Pilots we dont have an adapter harness for, depends on the Pilots trim level. For now, until ADS (Maestro), develops something, its not looking very good for the Pilot.

    This JVC KW-Z1000W has Apple Carplay for supported iPhones, Jason. Supported iPhones are listed through the 12 Pro Max but not your 14, sadly. Screen mirroring specifically independent of Carplay is only supported on Android phones through Miracast, also sadly. I do apologize, but I hope this helps!

    Greetings Gary, and thank you for your question. If all you are doing is changing the radio, you will retain ANC. That ANC is tied to the Harman Kardon amplifier which your new stereo will still be using. If at some point you change amplifiers, then you lose the ANC.

    I think it goes about halfway down but for my car it did not work. When k turn my steering wheel it was hitting it. When when it's in the high position then it's to high. So it did not work for me. It's hard to tell. I think you should measure the clearance that you have in your car and also measure the dimensions of the head unit as well. That what you will know if it's going to fit or not

    If you are referring to playing those files from an iPhone connected to the receiver using the CarPlay interface, then yes because this interface allows you to play the music stored on the phone. However, not all of these models will play ALAC files stored on other devices.

    chuck  Aug 10, 2021

    The display can be used as a monitor for any device with an HDMI video output. Whether it would work for tuning with the Maestro interface will depend on what metrics are brought out on the particular vehicle interface. If boost and timing are available it might work well.

    I left some screws off and treat it as detachable. It always stays in place
    xavier  Apr 08, 2021
    No, it is not detachable in the sense that it is designed to be removed frequently. However, there are 6 screws holding it in place which can be easily removed to detach the monitor. There are no wires to disconnect. No sure if the electrical connection would be worn by routinely breaking the connection by removing often. I'd ask the Tech group at Kenwood about that.
    george  Apr 07, 2021
    Yes, 6 screws in all. It's 4 screws mounting it to the double din. Then 2 screws holding the black plastic piece which is REQUIRED for the screen to turn on.

    In a way it is but it only detachable for installation. Once you installed it you have to screw bit in place and do not removed it
