Tried out the DNX9990HD for a couple weeks, and this puts that unit to shame.

First of all, everything works! The pandora and aha radio functions are amazing! There are an amazing amount of ways to customize the audio. You can tune what type of speakers your car have, where sound should circulate, the type of car you have, how much space is in the car, and sports a 13 band equalizer. It is fairly simple to tune, just takes a little time.

The Garmin navigation is totally redone and has the latest greatest. The car icon seems a little smaller than previous models, and you are no longer at the bottom of the icon. The map is more detailed and can have points of interest pop up while driving. The dual "real view" screen that pops up when merging or turning off on major highways is amazing.

The start-up time is not that bad. I think it is around 30 seconds. However, music starts playing after 8-10 seconds and the rear camera works instantly. So if you back out of a driveway and have a rear camera, by the time you are out the navigation is working. GPS signal is instantly found when it pops up.

All in all, this unit is amazing. I had the DNX9990HD for about 2 weeks and there were lots of little things that drove me crazy. Kenwood fixed everything and this is as close to a perfect unit possible. I spend lots of time in my car and I am still trying to find more places to go so I can play with the radio. This is what it is supposed to feel like after spending this much money on something.

Bright screen at night was no problem to me.

I recently purchased this unit to upgrade the stock radio in a Pontiac Solstice with the Monsoon sound system. The stock system sounds amazing due to the quality of the speakers and amplifier that the monsoon uses. I wanted to add wireless bluetooth streaming audio and this was one of the ways to go. The first thing I did was update the unit's software from Kenwood's site. I was pleased to see that even though this unit has not been out long, Kenwood seems to have already released a few updates to the unit. Then again, maybe that's a bad sign too...
The Kenwood DNX890HD could have been a perfect radio, but there are a few things that make it more mediocre than anything.
On the plus side:
*Excellent radio reception.
*Amazing navigation capabilities, with great control over the settings related to the navigation. Recalculating routes are quick, the traffic function is wonderful, and there are more POIs that I can shake a stick at. I had never used a Garmin automotive GPS before, so I'd have to say that I like it, even compared to my trusty old TomTom 720.
*Wonderful sound quality, although most of this is due to the speakers and amp from the OEM Monsoon system.
*Fully customizable sound with amazing control of the EQ, DSP, and most every imaginable tweak needed to make the unit sound perfect.
*Great integration with my smart phone (Samsung Galaxy SIII). Pandora, aha, music, and speakerphone are seamless and sound great. Control integration is superb, allowing for full control of the playlist on my phone directly from my steering wheel controls even (skip forward, backward, etc.).
*Perfect rear-view camera integration.
*Features, bells, whistles, and bling ;)
Now, for the negatives:
*The display is simply and undeniably WAY too bright!

FINAL UPDATE-
After 5 months, unit is non-usable. There has been a major fault in most units that require a complete replacement. Kenwood does not pay for the shipping/time loss or anything. I recommend DO NOT get this unit.

-

First off, I must note the title. This unit has SO much potential. The functionality, the beauty, it will get there.. in time.

This unit came out just three months ago, so my current recommendation is WAIT. -- READ BELOW

You can read every other review and they give you the features, blah blah. This is what I use and my recommendation of it:

OEM Gauges: Work fantastic! Soldered into car OBDII ports and I get gauges and all that fun stuff!
OEM Media: OEM bluetooth integration is a straight pass. Although it works well, any Kenwood Bluetooth features (Garmin, Pandora, AHA) do not work if you're using OEM Bluetooth, you have to switch. Inconvenient. -1 Star
Navigation: Superb! It's garmin, what else can i say.
Radio: Really hard to go wrong with radio. HD radio in my area (Southern California) Is not bad, so no complaints.
--I turned off OEM Bluetooth to only have to use kenwood bluetooth--
Kenwood Bluetooth (A2DP, Pandora, AHA with AT&T Galaxy SIII running Android 4.2 (AOKP)) :
A2DP: Slow to connect, decent connectability. Sometimes it quits and I have to reconnect. Also sometimes beeps loudly when songs change and stuff. Did NOT do this with OEM Bluetooth
Pandora: Hit or miss, usually miss. If it works, it's great! But most of the time, it completely disconnects bluetooth and doesn't work.
AHA: Same for pandora, I take it as poor app integration on the Kenwood side.
Garmin Integration: currently unavailable.

All-in-all, the bluetooth is poor.
