I have had this in-dash unit for just over a year, and it is so good that I decided to write my first review ever on Amazon. I have owned many car stereo systems over the years, including some $500+ units purchased in the 70s and 80s, when $500 was a lot of money. I wanted something that would control my iPod Touch, so I headed to a local electronics shop to see what was available.

I bought a different brand first, but upon getting it home I discovered it did not control the Touch 4th Gen, so back to the store. I ended up getting this unit, though it was a bit cheaper than I had planned on spending (nearly twice what it is now), because there was a limited selection of units that could control the iPod Touch.

The unit installed easily in my 2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT with Monsoon sound system. I had it installed in about an hour, using a $12 installation kit, without breaking anything or having any extra parts left over.

I had to find a place to get a continuous 12 volts, because I couldn't find one in the original wiring harness. I went to a local automotive supply store and found a simple device that plugged into an existing fuse slot and added another fused circuit. I had to pull out an existing fuse to add the device, so I decided to use the circuit that fed the in-dash stereo system with continuous power. I don't remember why I couldn't just have wired it in on the existing harness, but there was a reason.

Now, with everything installed and wired it was time for a test run. I plugged in my iPod and turned on the radio. I found the iPod input easily by going through the menu, and selected it. I picked a song from a favorite artist. I COULD NOT BELIEVE my ears! I had never heard such quality sound before, not even out of my past expensive systems.

This is a great stereo; iPod functionality is great, and charges the iPod while plugged in. The AM/FM tuner is absolutely amazing (I now have around 10 more channels that I did not get with the stock stereo), and the bass boost really does a great job. The stereo's manual is well made/descriptive, and explains what every wire's job is on the included harness. I would definitely buy this product again!

I bought this stereo for its USB feature. I had no prior experience installing a car stereo. I was able to install it on my own over several hours, and after purchasing 1) wire strippers, 2) electrical tape, and 3) a few replacement screws for ones I misplaced haha. Looking back, the installation wasn't difficult, but the first time at anything will take some time. I own a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant by the way.

I have driven five or six hours now with the stereo on, and it completely exceeds my expectations! Sound quality is very important to me, and I do not hesitate to adjust whatever EQs I can find. This unit takes it to the next level, by allowing you to select the speaker setup in your car--mine has the awkward 6x9" rear speakers. By choosing this speaker configuration in the stereo, I believe (could be wrong) the system adjusts the EQ at different volume levels. With the factory stereo, music would sound great at regular volume, but the rear speakers produced some bass notes better than others at high volume. With this Kenwood stereo, the bass response stays flat and even and hits nice and hard at much higher volume. Why the freakin' factory couldn't design a radio that works better with their own speakers is beyond me, but Kenwood nailed it.

Yeah it controls an iPod. So far I've just put it on shuffle all. The interface is probably what you'd expect. It's mostly red so it matches my gauges nicely. Removable faceplate is also an important feature. Altogether, this is one of the best $90 (including cost of wire strippers) I have ever put into the car.

I bought a Kenwood KDC-248U a year ago and had it installed in my wife's 2000 Lexus ES300. I love the sound, but I discovered a few months later that the fader control didn't work. I just took everything apart today and found that the KDC-248U doesn't have separate front/rear outputs, so the installers just connected both front and rear through splitters to the KDC-248U sub outputs. Now I find I need to get a different head unit. Wish the installers had alerted me to the limitations of the KDC-248U; I would have gotten a different head unit back then. If your car has a separate amplifier, this unit will not provided the necessary front and rear preamp outputs.

This head unit is a really great product, there are several options available to do.
I have an iphone 4 and this unit charges my phone while playing crystal clear music with no distortion.
This product also increased the amount of power going to by door speakers more than the old alpine system i had.
this has a greater bass boost and works well with my Kicker CVR 12"
All in all i would recommend this product to anyone on a budget and want all the following: (USB,AUX,CD,FM/AM)

A story with a happy ending: I was concerned buying the cheapest unit that met my needs and end up raving about how good it is.

I buy an older car, a '79. A previous owner had installed a 2002 era blaupunkt cd player. The headunit didn't have any inputs so no way to play my zune into the car stereo. I start carrying cds in my car (once you start using an ipod type device, the old 'cd' things seem so primitive!)

Fast forward 2 years, the wife buys me an iphone 4. Start feeling like a target what with all the expensive accessories available. Shopping for usb chargers to go into the cigarette lighter, $20-$50 and then the cables etc. Start wondering if I can replace my current stereo for just a little more and gain the ability to play music off my phone.

Pretty much stumbled into this unit, not only does it have an input, it has a usb port that connects to and will charge iphones. Took it home and hooked. The blaupunkt I took out had labels on each output wire, otherwise I'd not have know how the car was wired. Took about 1.5 hours to remove the old unit and install this one. Quite uncomfortable upside down in the footwell of a small car. You'll need some wire butts and a good pair of crimpers. Oh, and some wire strippers that you are friends with, and a baggy of short zip ties.

Finally powered on, no issue. This is my 3rd or 4th modern car stereo (post ~1995?). I've seen the craziest techniques to access settings, 300 page instruction manuals, controls only available from the remote control. This unit is so easy to configure that I didn't need the instructions.

In my closed garage I tested the radio and get a very clear and wonderful signal including a far away station I enjoy.
