KCA-BT200

August 2, 2010

Installation was easy, as is operation. Using the product is easy but the audio quality so far is poor. Placed microphone on steering column as advised but audio quality is still bad enough to get complaints from people on the other end of conversation. Not sure if mic is picking up vibrations or just poor audio characteristics of the mic itself. People say audio cuts out or is choppy like a cheap BT headset. There is no rating for audio quality in the STAR graph ratings... so, over all it is an OK unit, kinda spendy for the audio quality.... Not sure I would recommend this unit unless used in a very quiet environment.

I very much enjoy this unit in my car. The blue tooth works very well however I have had some difficulty keeping a consistent link between the two items. The Garmin navigation is extremely helpful and accurate.

April 15, 2010

I've had this Bluetooth unit for about six months. When talking while driving which is the point of the unit the person your talking to you can barely hear or understand you. I no longer use it to talk I only use it for music from my iPhone. Playing music that way is definitely convenient. But overall I would not recommend someone to purchase the KCA-BT200 *Admin Note: The placement of the microphone is crucial for voice quality. Try placing it right above the steering wheel to get better quality.*

Not a bad unit, but strange UI

January 12, 2010

This unit installs easily, looks good and sounds good. But it has a very strange user interface. Kenwood definitely needs to get some new UI talent... The Garmin GPS part of the UI looks great -- very much like portable Garmin units. Navigation is fast and easy. Selection of destination is via touchscreen (typical Garmin). The default female voice is a little robotic sounding, but definitely passable. Combined with a huge and bright screen, this is probably the best part of this Kenwood unit. I added both the Bluetooth speakerphone module and the Sirius satellite radio module. The individual boxes are small (about 1.5" thick and 4" x 4" width. But the cabling -- holy cow. I think I've got 12+ total feet of interconnect cabling that I had to fold up and zip tie. That is in addition to the Sirius, GPS and microphone cables. The Kenwood Bluetooth module is a little disappointing. Even with the nice microphone they provide (it is on the end of a 8' thin wire, so you can put it just about anywhere), the sound quality is pretty tinny. You can hear the other party on the call quite well through the passenger front speaker only -- they do this to reduce feedback -- and it sounds ok. But most people you talk to will complain that they can hear a lot of background and engine noise. There is no noise cancellation or VOX, so they will even hear the background noise when you are not talking. Not suitable for conference calls unless you mute... The Sirius module works great -- excellent signal reception even if you put the antenna inside the windshield. Occasionally will drop signal if under a bridge -- I'm sure it would be better if antenna were outside. But again, the user interface on the head unit makes use of Sirius a little frustrating. You can save favorites, scroll through the channel listings, etc., but it just isn't as easy to use as Sirius units I've had in my BMW or my Stilletto2. You can easily short the parking indicator wire, so it is easy to enable DVD playback for your passengers. But aside from testing, I've never needed to watch a DVD while driving (probably a good thing). I didn't buy the iPod adapter, but given my experience so far, I would guess that it would probably sound fine, but be frustrating to use. Again, the UI is the major disappointment with this unit...

This is a great add on for your vehicles head unit! I use a Blackberry, and can't use the text messaging option, but everything else works great. I had a little bit of trouble hooking it up and getting my unit to work with it right away, but it all worked out in the end. I recommend anyone to get this as an add on.

It's not too bad. I would buy a unit that has built-in blue tooth because this is pretty bulky. For the price, it's definitely much better than the blue tooth that transmits through an FM channel.

Kenwood KCA-BT200

August 26, 2009

Ater shopping around for a Kenwood stereo after mine was maliciously stolen, I found the model I wanted at a a local store which of course was sold out. I did an online search and found Sonic Electronix had the same model for $30 cheaper. I am very pleased with the product. It's illuminations are fantastic at night and the ease of a flash drive did away with the constant changing of CD's and the affordable Bluetooth adapter which I also purchased makes this stereo among the best I ever bought. The remote control makes it so much easier to use with no reaching for buttons.. Yes, a great product and simple to use. Very pleased with my purchase

iPhone 3G S and BT200

August 1, 2009

The old iPhone worked fine on my Kenwood KVT-514 and KCA-BT200. The new iPhone 3G S could make calls, however the called party could hear me, I couldn't hear them. The steps I took: Reset the Kenwood received (have you had any battery problems or electrical work done on your car lately?) Reset the iPod/iPhone (Settings/General/Reset/Reset Network Settings) Then the Kenwood saw the iPhone (iPhone could see the BT200 all along) On the iPhone 3G S the default from Apple is streaming audio over bluetooth, so you need to turn that off. Of course if you are using stereo Bluetooth headphones like a Moto S9, then you will have to turn that back on to use the headset. Apple needs to fix this “feature”.
