EDITED NOVEMBER 23, 2013
There was a major software glitch that occured in many KDC-models manufactured prior to mid-december 2012.
I assume that kenwood applied the patch to all 2013 models, so my original review is now out of date.
I posted the following for several kenwood head units, which is a little unethical, but people seemed to like it. For the record, the models I own are KDC-BT952HD and KDC-HD552U
Still, updating your software is not a bad Idea. Find the proper update and user's manual for your model here.
[...]

Two things to add.
I can still get the "all audio output lost" bug if I plug in an Ipod while they are in startup mode. So either plug in the Ipod before turning the key, or wait until the unit is fully primed.
If you dig down into the "pro settings" menu, there is am option to save the pro settings, which works even if the battery is disconnected. You can store several different pro setups. "Pro Setup" > "Preset" > "Memory"

ORIGINAL REVIEW July 1, 2013
This is an excellent unit with a very large feature set, and it's available at an excellent price. However, it appears that all of the KDC model groups manufactured pre-2013 suffer from a software glitch that causes all audio output to be lost . You can hit the reset button, which works except you'll also have to reset all your settings, or you can update the software.
Software update worked great for me, and also solved the equalizer-vs-blutooth glitch. There are two separate updates. one for the system, and one for the iPod/bluetooth. It's a somewhat complicated procedure, and it takes a full hour, but it does solve the problems. Also made iPod navigation a bit easier. You have to burn a CD. Here's the page. [...

I own a 2000 Honda Accord and I have an iPOD CLASSIC and a GS3 SMARTPHONE with BLUETOOTH AUDIO AND PHONE, and I like to listen to SATELLITE RADIO while driving.

My goals were to:

1) Upgrade the horrid sound quality of the factory audio in my Honda Accord.
2) Be able to plug in my iPOD via USB and control it through the new KENWOOD car stereo.
3) Be able to make/take calls hands-free through bluetooth phone of my GS3.
4) Listen to satellite radio and control it through the KENWOOD car stereo. (You need to buy the SXV200v1 SiriusXM add-on tuner)
5) Perhaps, in the future, listen to music through bluetooth audio of my GS3.
6) Retain the use of my steering wheel volume and station select controls. (You need to buy the AXXESS ASWC-1 INTERFACE)

NOTE: I didn't buy the KENWOOD KDC-BT555U car stereo from here at Amazon but instead from another well known online car audio store. You can guess which one. Actually, I bought this car stereo AND a pair of 6X9 SOUND ORDNANCE rear speakers from that other place. All though, I did buy from AMAZON the SIRIUS/XM SATELLITE RADIO TUNER that plugs directly into this head unit and also the AXXESS Steering Wheel Control Interface, and I saved quite a bit of money in doing so. (I plan on getting a pair of 6 1/2 SOUND ORDNANCE front speakers this summer for even better sound.)

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: This head unit has all of these features:

You can plug in your iPOD via USB located on the front panel and control it from the head unit, same with SATELLITE RADIO (the tuner plugs into the rear and you install it behind the dash). The BLUETOOTH PHONE works well with my GS3; calls are clear and the people I call say they can hear me easily.

This head unit is really nice. A tremendous value for the money. I had it installed in my 2006 Toyota Tacoma. With a couple of adapters, the Kenwood integrated into my JBL sound system and the steering wheel controls. It sounds terrific; crisp and clear. The Bluetooth connectivity is very convenient. I use a large-capacity iPod touch along with my iPhone. Both are able to pair with the Kenwood simultaneously. The settings for the unit allow you to specify one Bluetooth device for phone and another for audio. My only gripe here is that when I turn off the vehicle and return later, my phone seems to trump the iPod for audio playback. So I need to jump through a few settings or I need to turn off Bluetooth on the phone. It doesn't do this every time, so it might be that I'm misunderstanding something. Bluetooth calling is very good, and calls will gracefully interrupt audio playback from the iPod (Nice!). When advancing music on the iPod while listening over Bluetooth, there is a noticeable lag in response. You can't expect Bluetooth to have immediate response. In fact, while listening to video podcasts, I notice that the video on the device is not even close to synchronized. Not a big deal since I'm actually supposed to be driving, right? The phone mic is placed at the top of the driver's side A-pillar, and everyone reports that it sounds just fine, no echoing. Devices can also be attached via USB and Aux connectors on the front face. Moving along, the tuner brings in stations loud and clear. The CD deck plays standard audio CDs as well as discs loaded with MP3s. The faceplate is removable, too. Highly recommended.
