Navigation takes up a huge part of the manual mentioning apps that you will never find because they just aren't there. (Because Kenwood traffic isn't working) The navigation map appearance is a joke. You are hard pressed to find any difference between one theme and the next. They all look the same. Every gps I have owned since gps have been has a way to make custom points of interest on the screen. I have yet to find a way to have the things I want to appear on my map to be there. Maybe i just want banks or gas stations or whatever. No way to do it that I can find. Look in the manual for POI's, it points you to a Garmin website for a proprietary software to create custom POI's! WHY do I need a stand alone piece of software to do this. There are no clear and concise directions on how to set up POI's and I cannot get the sd card slot to work, lost and sd card trying to do so. I am able, finally after 2 days of futzing able to get it to work on a usb stick but there is not enough internal memory to take the POI database that I built so I would need to have them on the SD card but it does not work properly as of this time.
The interface is clunky and overly complicated. There should be a button for sources/apps not a settings menu which should be under the sources/apps folder. I want my hard shortcut to be useful, once my stereo is set why should I want to go into the settings but rarely. The problem is that things are so all over the place it is going to take forever to remember where they are, it needs to be organized. Traffic information source is Kenwood Traffic app which does not work on a note 8, it does work on an S5 and is currently getting 1.9 stars on google app store. Fix it. What is worse is that the app is a horrible battery hog. Finally had to call Kenwood to see if I could get this sorted out. Support did resets and fiddled and messed about including making me reset the unit TWICE to attempt to get this piece of crap software to give me traffic updates on the Garmin software. Not working on Note 8. It takes a good hour to get the basic settings in this unit muddled by the fact that finding everything quickly is hampered by the disorganized interface.
Tech I spoke withe says he deals with complaints everyday. Says "I am sure they will get it right in the next unit." I asked what about updating the software in this unit? Said "No way that happens, improvements will be on upcoming units if at all". WHAT?! For the price of this unit and it being 9 months out it should be running slicker than owl snot. I should not be having these sort of problems and if it were not for the fact that the unit is a MAJOR pain to install I would return it and had gone with the pioneer.
Oh, and the coup de gras? THIS UNIT DOES NOT WORK FOR WIRELESS ANDROID AUTO except for if you have a google phone (or so they say). Kenwood says this is Googles fault. If you are going to have wireless android as a selling point at least say in your brochure that it is an upcoming feature on MOST phones (99.9%) Finally, they got rid of the HDMI in in the back so now, to mirror your screen you have to buy a string of adapters a mile long and pay 30 dollars for a AV in cable from Kenwood which probably costs about a buck fifty to make. You couldn't put this in your "flagship" receiver? Come on, why get rid of the port at all!!!!!! If you are looking for a high end receiver, I cannot not recommend enough to look elsewhere. Maybe they will get it right in future updates but right now it does not deliver on it's promises.
The sound quality is simply outstanding. The 13 band EQ is awesome. Lots of room to play around with sound fields. My system is all external amplification, so I cannot comment on the built in power. I doubt anyone buying this high end of a unit will ever use the built in deck power. The dual USB plugs give a lot of flexibility. Supposedly one of the two USB dongles supplies Qualcomm Fast Charge capability for Android phones, but with my Galaxy S7 both seem to charge at normal speed.
The NAV system is very good. Not perfect, but good enough to get the job done with ease. I really like the negative degree screen tilt. No idea why only the 995 has this feature. But, it seriously eliminates a ton of glare with the ability to aim the screen down. I also have the DRV-N520 dash cam with this unit, and it works seamlessly. The HD screen resolution is VERY clear, and the capacitive touch screen is very comfortable to use. Screen tends to get a lot of fingerprints on it, keep a screen cleaning cloth handy.
All that said, Android auto obviously still does not work wirelessly as of late September. At least not with my Galaxy S7 and S8. But, it works very well cabled. I'm not going to even count this against Kenwood, because it's not their problem.
I'm beyond impressed with this deck, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a high end system.
1) Actually functions (unlike Pioneer)
2) Awesome sound quality (far above Pioneer); plays up to 24/192 FLAC and DSD 256
3) Great screen resolution and color
4) Good features and DSP settings for head unit
5) Functionality is great - plays anything I would want, and has Android Auto (and it actually works)
6) Works perfectly with a large drive (I hooked up a 1 TB SSD)
7) Fast indexing, and I can remove my drive and add more music without it freaking out on me
8) Lots of options for displaying album art and customizing main screen
1) The most amazing fingerprint magnet I have ever seen - it lusts for fingerprints
2) The navigation does not have voice control (???)
3) There is no way to create or use a playlist. What?? This is just silly.
4) When switching from rear to front camera, sometimes sticks and the front camera doesn't shut off automatically
5) The UI could use an update and some polish; some settings are obscure or difficult to get to
6) Needs a hardware mute button
7) Needs a scroller to seek during tracks
8) Slow boot time
All in all, the sound quality and functions that actually work make this head unit a great buy, even at the steep price. When you compare it to Pioneer, it's absolutely amazingly great. Going from a 4400NEX to this, I am very happy.
If they updated the firmware to fix some of the quirks, this thing could be near perfect.
