I purchased this car receiver with very specific objectives in mind. First off I would like to say that I'm living in Japan and supporting the military. I went to Autobacs in Japan and they didn't have anything that could compare to this Kenwood, plus their prices were 3x as much for less features and their devices weren't in English. I really wanted a Garmin Navigation because I previously owned a Garmin Nuvi until some kids broke into my car and stole it, so that is why I wanted an in-dash unit. Other than that my objectives were:
- Radio must be in English
- Must be intuitive
- Bluetooth to pair with my iPhone for hands free talking
- Garmin Car Navigation
- Rear facing USB for a solid state hard drive I have with my MP3's on it
- DVD either on disk or read from SSD
- Sleek design that fits into my car
- Rear facing camera

I must say that this receiver fits all of those objectives. The only thing that I wish Kenwood would have done was unlock the device so I can install my, previously purchased, maps of Japan to load onto the device. Also the navigation has this annoying "agree" button every time the device loads up you must push the button to get the navigation. I really wish there was a way to turn that off. The reason I went with Kenwood is because it uses Garmin and Garmin seems to be the leader when it comes to Maps of Japan. Now I need to see if I can barter with Garmin and how much it will cost me to get the device unlocked so I can load the maps of Japan. This device will be nice for when I eventually move back to the States I will already have a device that I like and enjoy. I hope this review helps you in making your decision.
