just got this put in the other day and absolutely love it. still figuring some of the features but overall a very easy system. for some reason i cant get the bluetooth to work with my phone. once i get that to work and upload my address book that would be awesome.

What kind of phone? Do you have the BT200 module installed?

Turn on bluetooth discovery on the phone, the phone will ask for a pin, enter 1234. Enable the headset that shows up in devices if it's not already enabled.

In the radios TEL select you can turn the phone connection on and off. Turn it off. Then you can send your contacts. Then turn the phone connection back on.

Don't feel bad, mine has a module for everything. Sirius Module, XM traffic module, Bluetooth module, Even the navigation is a module. There are still a lot more modules I can get but I gave up for now. :hehe:

It is a very good system.

AVIC is the same way, don't feel bad. Once you get all the features you want, you'll love the system no matter which one you bought, Kenwood or Pioneer.

I just purchased the DNX5120 w/ all goodies, backup cam, bluetooth, and ipod connector. How hard is this to install yourself? Where do I run the wire to the b/u cam? Do I go inside and out to bottom of back cab? How do I even start pulling the factory radio cover off to access all this?

Did you buy the adapter to connect the old steering controls to the new unit, if not, then you need to get one, they are about 100 bucks for the good ones or 40-50 for the cheapys. I have the 7100dnx

dont worry i wont tell :wink[3]: and i have a blackberry ugh. but im loving my system its perfect for what i want and really dont see the need for me getting a larger screen in my case. now im just waiting till i get back from my next deployment and re-enlisting so i can put a 8" BDS 4 link with kmc xd monster 20x10 and 37x13.5r20 toyo open country mt on and re gear to 4.56 and i think ill be done for a while till i get used to that and start looking for other stuff to get done.

I have the 4520 as well...no need for all the other super stuff, I dont need a big internal hrd drive and all that.

I do wish I would have gotten the blue tooth thing.....I guess so...and I might later and add it but for now I just talk on the phone while driving like normal...lol

We watch movies all the time on it while driving and UI added a back up camera thats cool as well....pushing the nav button for 2 seconds while I am driving lets me see the trailer hookup toi make sure the plugs are in and the chains are hooked up..pretty neat.


Aand IMO the Kenwood systems with the Garmin are the ONLY way to go for the Nav.
