Terrible product.


Read the YouTube reviews on all the kewood range headunits, the issues are similar across the board.
The digital radio cuts in and out and Kenwood cannot fix that. It's DAB issue.
The screen mirroring application is so out of date that no recent phone in 4 years can connect.
The Google voice assistant does not work.
The HEMA maps are for international only.
If you're in Australia do not buy this product, send Kenwood a message and stay clear.
They haven't updated the support for this product and for over $1000 the only part of this unit that works is the cd tray and standard radio.. don't make the mistake of spending $1000 on something that a Supercheap $80 special will do.

kenwood disappointment


i brought this stereo when it was first released from extreme car audio blacktown from the first day i had problems with the digital radio reception
the factory toyota unit had digital radio and no problems, i think kenwoods radio reciever is just inferior, and now the bluetooth music is staring to cut in and out
ive taken the radio back to extreme and they contacted kenwood reps and nothing
i asked for a replacement unit or money back and nothing
take your hard earned money and research before purchasing
now going to call consumer affairs
lesson learnt!!!

Digital rubbish


They call it dabs for the digital radio. Digital Audio Broadcasting System. Dabs works great if you use a secondary app off the phone. My digital radio drops out constantly. Also when bluetoothing music from my phone it "mutes" in the middle of a song. Though it isn't actually muted. The song is still playing but you can't hear it. If I jump it to the next song it's ok. Not that good when everyone is getting into a song and it just cuts out. $1500+ with installation wasted on this junk. Never buying Kenwood again

I've always used Android Auto wirelessly with my ddx9019dabs and it's been working pretty good. The last couple of months however my phone calls have been breaking up through the head unit but working fine when using my phone on loud speaker. Is there a solution for this?

Can you please let me know why my Kenwood DDX9019DABS media player will not display Track names when using the CD Player. I have tried Multiple CD's and while they all play, no track names ever come up, only the song number. The System is not in Demo mode and is playing in the correct mode. I have also switched to the correct setting on the remote for playing CD's but still no joy!
