Variable Color Illumination – This allows the user to match the Kenwood unit’s illumination with the vehicle dashboard lights. Users can color-coordinate the background colors to their preferences and change key illuminations from the wide pallet of available colors to match any dashboard lighting conditions.
  
 Rear View Camera Input – Eliminate blind spots and improve safety when reversing your vehicle by adding an optional Kenwood CMOS reverse camera. Once the camera is installed, as soon as you put the vehicle into reverse, the rear view image will appear automatically on the DNX/DDX monitor.
  
 

Three 4.0V Pre-outs with Crossover System – Get the most out of your external power amplifiers by delivering 4.0V high voltage audio signal to maximize sonic performance.  Using the built-in crossover system, you can also easily filter out unwanted frequencies to your speakers and subwoofers to tune your system to its maximum potential.

  
 

Steering Wheel Remote Input – Many factory systems offer control of the factory-fit audio system from buttons on your steering wheel.  Unfortunately, this functionality is sacrificed when installing an aftermarket audio system.

Install a commercially available steering-wheel interface and maintain control of functions such as volume up/down and track up/track down.  This increases the convenience of using your system and increases driver safety to another level.

  

Firmware Updates – The operating system is updateable via free downloadable software from Kenwood’s support sites. Firmware downloads assist in maintaining system performance when using external devices and emerging technologies.
