good value

Great options and well worth the investment for older vehicles that do not have rear camera/sat radio/gps, etc etc. Biggest complaint is that it does TOO much and VERY hard to use interface (especially while moving). Bar at bottom of unit is very sensitive to touch and constantly hitting wrong buttons. That and the blue-tooth function is skittish, only 1/2 the time does my phone/unit stay connected... Still a good buy though.

Kenwood DNX7160 QUESTIONABLE

I have owned this radio now for 2 years. After the first year the radio started acting up. The cold weather seems to have an effect on the touch scene operations. The radio started turning off and on by itself without the vehicle being on. The radio is not compatible with GM vehicles internal computer, you will have to pull the radio when having your vehicle serviced. I do like the multitude of options this radio has offered. The remote could be more user friendly..

December 18, 2011 It's OK but failed after 11 months.

Has the potential to be a great unit.
Pros: Lots of features, easy to use, sounds great.
Cons: maps are expensive to upgrade, don't get all the garmin features (e.g. new voices), can be confusing to operate. Build quality is OK but my unit failed after 11 months of working fine.
