First, the "Route Collector" system has *never* worked for me and the alleged ability to put music into a dropbox account for sharing to your DNN990HD is a complete non-working failure.
Next, the version of Android which runs this unit is so limited that it is no better than having some other half-baked proprietary system installed. The "apps" that are included are klunky and slow to respond. There is no ability to load my own apps, nor is there much capability for customizing my experience to what I want.
Frankly, for $2000+ as an installed product, I expect a LOT more.
Then, just when I had resigned myself to the mediocrity which is the Kenwood DNN990HD, I thought I saw hope in my future-- a firmware upgrade! I followed the instructions precisely and patiently waited for the 40 minute upgrade process to complete--only to find that ALL of my settings, GPS favorites and anything else which was personalized--were GONE. BLANK SLATE. Really? What upgrade EVER wipes out all of a user's settings, preferences and saved data??
What really scotched this unit for me is that about a week after re-creating ALL of my settings and favorites, the unit just goes into an endless reboot cycle-- where it reinitializes and reboots over and over and over.Read more ›
First thing, the unit is not intuitive at all. You will need to read the instructions carefully and thoroughly. The instruction that come in the box are useless, download the manual off the Kenwood web site. They just released a newer firmware version on 5/31/13, it fixed some issues, mostly with Internet applications. I think this review will be an ongoing work.
The instructions for setting up accounts is terrible, it should be simple, but it's not, you will get error messages that give no clue to what you are doing wrong. I got them set up, but I'm not clear how they relate to other functions.
GPS... I use the model 9597LMT Garmin GPS for rental cars when I travel, so I'm familiar with the brand. The first thing I noticed is the Kenwood version is not up to par with the portable for software, skins and dash boards. If you lose power, even for a fraction of a second, you will lose everything you entered into the unit; seems to be true for GPS and HD radio (strangely, not for XM Radio). I think I've entered my most used addresses four times.Read more ›
What I like: I love that I can get my email and have it read to me while I am driving. I can check Facebook (Which I don't care about) and Twitter. I like that for every source of music (Blue Tooth, Ipod, HD Radio,Pandora) You can adjust the music the way you want. It IS tedious, but once you do it, you will be glad.
There are 4 source screens. You SHOULD read the manual (It's long) if you want all the functionality out of it)
Some things that take getting used to: Lots of places to navigate to.You'll be glad for the PTT (Push to Talk) button and you can tell it what to do)
The Garmin GPS is superb as is the Parrot hands free.
What I dont like. The set up takes a while. Setting up the contrast on the screen is NOT intuitive.
You have to get an account on Route Collector before you can really use the unit The account is free for two years, but to me looks like Kenwoods
idea of NSA Data Collection. However, I used a fake name with NOSPAM in my last name. It will be obvious if they start sending me junk.
There are THREE cables. 2 USBs and 3.5 mm Male. My plans for those are to take out the center plug in between the seat heaters and put the plugs in there. I dont like the look of cables all over the place. For me one USB is for my Iphone and the other USB is for a hard drive that I can load all my music on and play it from there. I want to use the same idea as the HP pocket drive.Read more ›
