About this deal

Before starting, just install the free smartphone screen sharing application “Mirroring OA for KENWOOD” on your Android smartphone and connect it to the KENWOOD receiver via Bluetooth and a USB cable. (Compatible phone required). In the box, you'll find the stereo itself, as well as a wiring loom to connect to your car (you'll probably need an adapter as well). There's a microphone (for handsfree calls), a USB extension (for connecting your phone) and a GPS antenna for using Google Maps. The only thing with the Samsungs I'm aware of is there was a recent update to their flavour of Android (One UI I think?) which caused some issues. Have a look at r/androidauto on Reddit for any kind of issues like that. Usually it's on the handset side of things rather than the head unit/vehicle.

I believe this unit also supports custom wallpapers, so I might see if I can use the silhouette there as well. It also has an HDMI input (you could run a games console through the display if you wish), as well Bluetooth connectivity for both streaming music or making phone calls. It also has wireless screen mirroring for Android, which is great for watching videos (when parked up). Should I buy one? When the DNPS function of the center unit is operated, system will restrict title selection or other functions of the iPod for ten seconds. (Will resume in ten seconds.)Depending on the connected control unit, source name may be displayed "EXT-MEDIA", "*-MEDIA" or CD Changer ("CD-CH"etc.). Glad to hear the screen is better, as that's one of my gripes about the Pioneer unit I have. The UI in the Pioneer isn't fantastic either (better than OEM), so as long as the Kenwood is "as good" then I will be happy, especially if the screen is more responsive.

Android Auto was designed with safety in mind, helping you to minimize distractions and stay focused on the road. KENWOOD’s multimedia receivers combine an intuitive voice controlled interface with a large touch screen and superior sound quality, making it the perfect complement for your in-car life. You can even listen to and control music from your favorite streaming services like Pandora and Spotify. Navigate to where you need to with Google Maps or Waze. New KENWOOD Wi-Fi receivers also support Android Auto wirelessly (compatible phone required)

This model also offers USB Mirroring for Android phones enabling the whole phone handsets screen to be replicated on the 6.8” screen – ideal for entertainment from games to movies in your dashboard. Apple CarPlay gives iPhone users an intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch. With iOS 12.0 and higher, 3rd party navigation apps like Google Maps™ are also supported. Wireless connection is available on compatible iPhones. USB Mirroring for Android, displays & control your Android phone on the large touch screen of this KENWOOD receiver with impressive sound. Including convenient 2-way touch control capability. Connect the unit and iPod /iPhone with the attached iPod cable and Apple Lightning - 30 pin adapter.

The 13 band EQ and digital sound processor allows you to fine tune your music to get the best from your speakers and cabin acoustics, it even has digital time alignment so you can get the setup just perfect. So, ultimately, yes you should buy a Kenwood DMX8020DABS. It's an easy way of getting modern infotainment into an old car and no, there aren't really any catches. It looks the part, is easy to operate and is well worth the investment.You can connect up to 3 camera's to this receiver: a rear camera with parking guideline support, the KENWOOD CMOS-320 (sold separately & controlled via the Camera Link) and a blind view (left/right) camera. The AV-input is assignable as 3rd camera input. Setting of camera type and display switching between 3 cameras can be operated easily via the receiver’s large screen. Active 3-Way X'over Mode for advanced sound system building by separating the audio signal into different frequency band, via Low Pass Filter, Band Pass Filter & High Pass Filter, and direct them to the appropriate speakers or drivers via power amplifier(s). KENWOOD DMX5020DABS is the latest CarPlay & Android Auto 6.8” model – ideal for getting your apps on the go. However you listen to music or plan your journey this unit will have something to offer; DAB+, also known as Digital Audio Broadcasting Plus, provides crystal-clear audio quality and interference-free reception. DAB+ uses the AAC+ audio codec, which allows for greater compression without loss of audio quality and is comparable with CD audio quality. It uses a more efficient coding system to transmit digital data resulting in more stations being able to broadcast on the same frequency and allows for the delivery real time data services such as such as the station name and logo, presenter, song title and album artwork.
