REVIEW

Kenwood Excelon DNX9140 In-Dash Double-Din DVD Multimedia AV Receiver (Black) (Electronics)

This product is efficiently packed with all the top features available in today's in-car entertainment technology. Unlike some of the other in-dash video units available from Kenwood, this model does not require any remote mount navigation module or accessory interface module. Therefore, this product takes up minimal space and is very quick and easy to install.

The quality of this video unit is amongst the best, which is expected of Kenwood products.

  1. Sound quality exceeds expectations!
  2. Navigation is above average
  3. Voice commands that work!
  • All the navigation options and GPS settings can be set by voice command!
  • The accuracy of voice command interface is very good. In fact, all the settings for source monitoring (tuner, DVD, iPod etc) can be accessed by voice and many settings applied the same way. As an example: changing map view from 3d to "north up" can be done completely by speaking commands.
  • Also it's noteworthy that while on nav screen the bottom of the screen shows what song / source is playing - touching that line switches the display to that source. (or can be switched by voice command)
  • Switching back to navigation can be one button touch or ... say "view map" from any screen.
  • There are videos on the internet showing the various functions - just search the web by the model number to see them, the features are quite good.
  • I have a rear view cam as well, the backup cam image quality on screen is very high.

CONS:

  • This is a challenging unit to learn to operate. NOT intuitive in the least.
  • The saving graces for me were that I can get around the settings by 'voice command' - and the settings don't have to be changed often.
  • Too bright at night even at the dimmest settings, a good 10 times brighter than the dashboard lighting - which is a problem when driving long distances at night. Once away from urban lighting, it is extremely conspicuous. (the display can be turned off while music / nav are still working - display comes back on with a touch of screen or any button.)
  • Make no mistake, I'm talking about having it on "night" display and dimming with display settings also.
  • Operating manual is painfully basic and lacks detail.
  • Overall the sound and navigation quality make it a keeper.
