    Great Radio

    Very nice radio. Really like the rear USB, as it will charge your phone. This makes it an all in one solution and you can route the charging cable behind your dash from the radio to your phone mount. Excellent, strong sound. I installed this in a Peterbilt 378 dump truck and even with the noisy cab, the sound from this radio comes through clearly. Make sure you download the full manual as the manual that comes in the box is just a quick start. Controls and setup are very straightforward if you read about them. There are a lot of options. I installed a mini USB with all of my music in the front USB. I essentially have a jukebox in the truck now.

    Awesome deck, great sound quality w/ 4v preouts

    This deck is great. I started with the 328 which is similar minus the HD radio, rear USB port, and 4v preout rcas. Only one set of preouts worked so got the 728, which I should have done to begin with. Sounds so much better running to my amps, pushing an og Rockford to some Kenwood 6.5 comps and 2 kicker 10s with a alpine 600w monoblock. The remote app is better on this deck too. Worked with my steering wheel control interface I bought as well. Menu on deck could be a little easier to use. Love that if you pull power and re-connect your phone via Bluetooth and use remote app the sync backall your audio settings. Using app to change settings is so much easier.

    Great head unit for the money

    Everything "I" needed was included. Lots of options for the price point. Great sound and power for such an inexpensive head unit. You can do a lot of sound customization also. I would definitely recommend this one.

    Great Radio

    Installed it in my 98 Ram. Fairly easy install. The hardest part is figuring out what the wire colors meant on the included harness and the factory harness. The Bluetooth and everything works great. Takes a little bit to understand thoroughly.

    Radio for truck

    This radio was exactly what my husband needed in his plow truck as the radio never worked in it and it is a beat-up truck. Any drive in the truck prior to the radio was quite. Now we can stream Sirius radio and use the hands-free option with the cell phone too.

    Circuit City of today

    The radio functions just as it should. HOWEVER, it is a DAMG (think of the other word) shame that I had to contact a store in California to get the radio and to set up an installation date & time. There was NO help at the Greensboro, NC store (which I can no longer recommend)

    Installation was quick, clean, and cheerful.

    Too bad you have to put up with all the other BS.

    Everythng except the base

    I love this stereo, it's the best, but when I think of Kenwood, I think of deep base, that's what I'm used to. This stereo would have 5 stars if it wasn't missing that.

    Country Tay radio

    This radio smacks! I love it, lol. I hate that it goes up to just like 32-33 but I mean, I have 12’s in my car and it’s loud without my speakers anyways. But, that Bluetooth connection is a mother jugger! I like that on a call it doesn’t break up or anything, perfect!

    Truckers and heavy equipment people beware.

    This receiver is really decent, but if you are a trucker or someone who plans to mount the radio above your eye level, do not buy.

    The LCD viewing angle is very narrow, and the screen blanks out when viewed from below. The radio screen needs to be viewed from dead on to better yet, above.

    The Kenwood KMM-BT328u is a much better choice. Screen is very visible from below.

    Great Viewing Angles

    We use these radios in our farm tractors. They make it easy to connect to Bluetooth for everyone. They are also easily visible when viewed from below. All of our tractors have the radio mounted up high above eye level so the viewing angle is opposite of what is typical for a vehicle. Even at that angle we can see the display unlike some radios we had to replace. Those were fine if you stood up and looked directly at them, but when viewing from below sitting down you couldn’t see the display except at night. These new radios are easily visible from any angle. Awesome.

    Unexpected value

    Big value for it's pricetag. I got this for the old beater pickup ('91 GMC Sierra 4wd) because it's original radio hasn't worked in years and I didn't want to put much into a truck that only gets minimal use. Honestly, the feature that sold me on it was the color - it matched the interior and I figured that if it didn't sound good at least it would blend in somehow... Turns out that it nailed both! I spent 30 minutes installing it, set the clock, programmed some stations, played with the eq and look forward to trying the other features over time, especially the usb to charge my phone!

    You cant beat it for the price.

    Honestly... I usually upgrade vehicles to a super nice deck,,, I had a beater truck that I use for work so I bought this and had it installed... And WOW. Bluetooth connectivity is great, cool color options... overall a very nice choice if your not looking to spend too much or have a vehicle that is not in need of a super expensive deck.. This is top choice in my opinion.

    Cool stereo.

    I absolutely love this stereo. I had this installed on my 2003 rav 4 for 9 months and have had no problems with it. The lights are a really cool touch and you are able to change them. It had a Alexa button so if you're in that ecosystem you could make phone calls and voice commands.

    Cheap Upgrade to BT & XM

    Replaced an older Sony explod, primarily so I could add BT and XM built into the head. I was able to install myself in my RV and it fit well in the old harness. One thing that is constant amoung most of these style units is the poor user interface, and that is no different here.

    Kenwood review.

    This not my 1st in this series. I use these in hot rods with limited space. Most of my music is on a flash drive. On the occasion that someone else is with me and wants to use their phone, the bluetooth works well. It has good sound quality and plenty of functions. I haven't played a cd in the car for sometime so I'm not missing that feature. I have stayed with Kenwood because I'm old and don't want to learn new software all the time. :)

    Lots to like, but major USB issues with iPhone

    This head unit does everything it's supposed to, but I would like to comment on some surprising challenges. First, when using a USB cable to connect my iPhone (12, mini), the audio has a very slight "stutter" as if it's cutting in and out many times per second. This happens even with an OEM Apple lightning cable coming off of the faceplate outlet. It's very subtle and not noticeable when the car is driving, but you can hear it when parked. So that gets me thinking - is the charging voltage also cutting in and out many times per second? And then I start getting worried about the long-term effects on the phone's power system. That's strike 1. Strike 2 is when I select bluetooth as the source and use the USB cable strictly for charging my phone. Well, apparently the USB port connection isn't very tight because the head unit thinks that I keep plugging in a USB cable over and over, and switches the source from Bluetooth back to USB. If there's a strike 3, I guess it's that the track forward/back buttons are so nondescript and hard to find without looking at the unit.

    Here's how I'm using it now: strictly bluetooth as the source, with my phone plugged in to a cable in the car's 12v outlet. The Kenwood's USB port is empty, which I guess makes for a cleaner look. But it's still disappointing and something that seems easily fixable.

    The "Free" Installation was NOT Free...

    I love the Kenwood! However I had issues reguarding the "free" installation. When I purchased the radio I was told the free installation would cost around $30. I went to my neighborhood Best But and was told as I purchased the radio they couldn't schedule my install because the installation center would get mad. So I called and scheduled the install myself. I then visited the store where the radio was to be installed. The gentlemen said I would cost $230 to have it installed. They said I needed a $149.00 module that was suited for a newer car and they would might have to cut things to make the Kenwood "fit". I then called Kenwood and they referred me to Crutchfeild.com. They told me I needed and cheaper module. I spent $100 on parts including panel removal tools and soldered the connections myself and installed it myself in 45 minutes. Not cool Best Buy installation guys...

    No coordination between BestBuy, Geek Squad and me

    Would have given 5 stars if not for the poor coordination between Best Buy, Geek Squad and me. When i arrived at my installation appointment, the guy told me i needed more parts for the installation and he also needed to charge me $30 more for adding a power wire??? Wheres the free installation?? I went into the store and they didn't have all what i needed. I had to order parts and reschedule my appointment more than two weeks out. I wish Best Buy would have coordinated better. I didn’t know exactly what they needed and they didn’t tell me to come back and order specific items ahead of time. Coordination between BB, Geek Squad and customers needs to improve. So, i finally got what i needed and showed up for the installation. It went well, except that the guy installing my new stereo lost my user manual, so now i have to look it up online and print one. I have 2007 Ford Mustang GT.

    Nice vehicle stereo

    The aftermarket stereo in my 1998 Ford F150 finally died. 26 years old (I installed it from another vehicle) This stereo had all the features I wanted, with a few more than I thought I needed, but I like them now. Installation went according to plan although the instructions for the kit required to install this stereo into the truck could have been a bit more clear. Overall this is a good install and a very nice stereo.

    Perfect radio for me.

    I love this radio. I have a 2000 Honda Civic I just bought which needed a Bluetooth Radio. I have 24/7 Geek Support on my computers so installation was free if one has this. The salesman was knowledgeable and helped me pick out just the right one for my needs. I am old school and am still listening to my CDs so wanted a CD player. I have been a city girl for 30 years and hadn’t had a car until I bought my Honda so I really knew next to nothing about them. The technicians were on-time, friendly and gave me a great demo after installation. This radio hooks up effortlessly when I get in the car. The colors look cool. I am very happy with this purchase. No downside for me on this radio. This was a win for me from start to finish.

    So far, I'm really enjoying this radio. Xavier at the Buckhead store did a nice job of working with me to find a good radio that would fit. This radio actually has buttons that you can press, which I appreciate because I couldn't seem to apply the right amount of pressure to the screen on the previous one I had. This one also fits nicely with my Toyota Corolla, 2010. Further, the buttons light up in different colors, very slowly. I'm quite pleased!

    Satisfied Customer

    I recently purchased the Kenwood DPX504BT Built-in Bluetooth-In-Dash CD/DM Receiver- Black receiver. It was installed by Geek Squad in Henderson. I really like the performance and particularly the USB port. On my vehicle there would be a loud POP in the speakers every time the radio was turned on. I was advised of this when I picked up my vehicle and was told I need to provide a 12voly to 5 volt step down resistor and they would install it at no charge. I did get the resistor and they installed it as promised. The loud POP is now gone. Perfect.

    Kenwood DMX1037s review

    Stereo works flawlessly with my 2017 Toyota Highlander w JBL system factory setting with the meastra , only issue is the birds eye camera and backup camera are a clear downgrade form my stock stereo. Way more blurry. Also when on Bluetooth/apple CarPlay calls you have to turn the volume ALL THE WAY UP to hear the person speaking.

    Modern, sleek, reliable!

    Technology is only as good as it’s reliability and usability. This unit isn’t only packed with features, it works! Reliable and seamless. Wireless Apple CarPlay works great and the screen size is just right. Fits perfect in the double din of my 04 Silverado. I went with this unit because I like the screen size, having a volume knob is nice, and it also has some “quick access” buttons at the bottom of the screen, not a fan of only all screen especially when you’re driving. Very happy with the purchase!

    King of all 10" screens

    Best 10" radio out there. Wireless carplay, full sized hdmi in the rear (compared to others that have micro hdmi that breaks), excellent audio features. By far the best radio sold by to date. 10" screen makes navigation through carplay a breeze, and I love the large volume knob and dedicated rear camera activation buttons. Screen is fully adjustable in/out and up/down to fit most vehicles. I could never go back to a standard 7" display. Well worth the cost.

    Love all the features and screen resolution

    This is my first Kenwood head unit (and product too) and I ended up returning the Pioneer 7600nex 9” floating display because it was too glitchy and I wanted to give Kenwood a try as I’ve had only Pioneer head units in the past.

    The Kenwood is much more reliable in terms of glitches over the Pioneer (it’s not perfect but better). I also like the features it had like slideshow gallery (the pioneer allowed you to upload only a single personal pic as background).

    Overall I’m very happy I got this product and don’t have to deal with Pioneer glitches (which I’ve experienced quite a bit with an iPhone and the 4500nex).

    Great product

    Great product. I highly recommend measuring the space where the radio will go before purchasing since it may end up covering vents and such.

    I did have some issues with sound breaking up but that can happen when using wireless android auto in areas with a lot of signals.

    Basic but doesn’t skimp on features.

    It does all the basics. I like the glass capacitive touch screen Vs the plastic resistive touch screens

    Apple CarPlay works well however it does lose the wired connection on occasion may 1/10 times using it. But a simple unplug and plug back in fixes the issue every time. Sound quality is decent but not as good as higher end units. At first the clock would not stay correct but a firmware update from kenwood fixed that issue.

    Best Budget Car Stereo

    By far this stereo is amazing! Kenwood never seems to let me down! The Apple car play feature is very useful, especially when using Apple Maps. I recommend this car stereo to anyone looking to upgrade theirs. The slim body is something I like as well, which takes less space. For the price it’s a great budget radio that works really well, the touch response is very accurate unlike some other radios out there.

    Decent product.

    Product is good and works great. The only flaw for me is that when you use the Apple car feature, the app freezes and closes sometimes. It’s an easy fix(disconnect and reconnect) but it’s does get annoying sometimes. Overall good product.

    Nice radio, but the display is not HD. Haven’t figured out how to customize the boot up screen to add vehicle logo. Doesn’t have front camera input, so when adding a front camera through the aux input, you lose the audio from the radio or other source.

    Nice upgrade from my stock unit!

    I shopped around for a while looking for a new touch screen unit finally decided to go with the JVC - 6.8" KW-V6660

    It has everything I was looking for

    Apple play, Android Mirroring,

    touch screen, Bluetooth, CD & DVD.

    Great unit, Great sound, had it installed by Best buy.. they did a awesome job installing it! It looks factory you would never know it's aftermarket, they even hooked up my backup camera and stirring wheel controls. My only complaint is some glare from the sun.

    But over all! Good unit!

    Could be better

    After much searching for an affordable reputable brand stereo, I settled on this one. I had a few important traits I was looking for. It needed the ability to play CDs, be Bluetooth enabled, and to be able to connect to my phone to display GPS on the screen. Android Auto was the promised solution for this. But from the get-go it was flaky. While it will do Bluetooth to my phone for playing music and audio apps you have to plug into the USB port for GPS. After connecting to Android Auto after a couple of minutes it would crash and you'd have to start all over again. By this time you're now driving down the road and have to try to get it going again while moving which was presenting an even worse scenario than just using my phone only for GPS from the beginning. I don't know why Android Auto keeps crashing? Another minor frustration is it takes about 10-15 seconds to boot up which seems like a long time when you want to set music or book app up before you start driving.

    OK for a quick replacement.

    Radio replaced 2004 GMC YUKON original radio. It gave me Apple Car Play (with hardwire cable). I thought the original radio was bad, but it turned out to be the original amplifier. I “think” radio crashed on me one time after 30 minutes of play, but I need more screen time to be sure. Not sure if sound is as good as original radio ??? (But it’s close.)

    Nice radio, awkward volume control

    Love the radio, easy to use except for the volume. It’s kind of a pain to turn the volume up or down while you’re driving since you have to push the button. Just seems to be awkward to me. Wish it was a knob instead or had the switch on my steering wheel. Other than that it’sa great radio.

    Wonderful!

    Had this done on my 2012 F-150. Best buy installed it and did a great job! Works well and it's better than I expected. Had to buy a harness, and some other components too. So beware of that. The radio itself may be $230, but the other components needed brought the total to about $500. Pictures show before and after. I use Android auto.

    Very Good But Not Great

    Installed this Boss BE7ACP in my 2017 Subaru Crosstrek and overall, I'm happy with it. It has a nice, intuitive GUI and the screen responds quickly. The sound is also pretty good and the unit has several preset equalizer settings allows for user settings. The main reason I wanted this was for the Android Auto and Apple Car Play. It functions quite well for this, however, I'm disappointed with the map resolution and brightness in Android Auto. In sunlight it can be difficult to see no matter how bright you make the screen settings. It also has an annoying habit of not going back to Android Auto after the back up camera has been activated. It returns you to the main menu and you have to select Android Auto again. Lame. If you have the budget for a higher end headunit, you should probably spring for it and get a better screen, but this isn't a bad buy at all.
