Angry Kenwood

I've been looking for a good head unit to match my system I'm ordering, I hate aftermarket HU's because I love the look of stock--it flows and looks like it belongs so it's hard to find a HU.

I was looking at the pioneer AppRadio 3, but it got terrible reviews (looks good though), and I was almost set on getting a Pioneer AVH-X5500BHS but then I saw the Sony XAV601BT which was nice. I considered that and then saw the Kenwood DNX570HD. Looks pretty good and has A LOT of functions. Even works with sync even though I don't have sync, it's nice to know for others who look at this. It has a sister unit that is almost the same except it has the ability to connect to wifi, it's the DNN770HD.

Question is, has anyone here used it or messed with it much? I'm pretty interested in one of those units, more likely the one without Wi-Fi since I don't have unlimited data anymore.

Kenwood

I have alwasy ran Kenwwod Double din HU in all my vehicles and never had a problem with any of them.. I think they are the easiest to use and have way more options for fine tunning in a system.

But thats my 2 cents..

This -





I heard him break the window, grabbed my pistol at my head and took off outside. My old alarm ( I need to change my sig, I have a Cobra now ) was messed up but went off. He takes off to his homies car and we exchanged a couple of shots.

Good to see ya Mike.

NOPE! Never had a problem at my house after that. I DID have someone try and steal my rig from my wife's office but they were caught before they took it.

On topic I still love my Avic. The screen gives you lot's of cool options. You can make anything you want for it. For the price it's a great add-on.
