About this deal

The all-new Kenwood DMX8019DABS from Kenwood combines a stunning 7-inch touch screen with the latest smartphone connectivity. Overall, the Kenwood DMX8019DABS is a feature-rich car radio that offers a user-friendly interface, wireless connectivity options, and impressive audio capabilities. This item has been Professionally Refurbished by us (KENWOOD) - Is fully working and may show signs . This flagship of the DMX series includes USB, HDMI, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay wireless and, mirroring Android phones through Wi-Fi, Spotify ready. Hi-res audio capability is backed up with DSP for sound tuning, making this the complete music and information hub.

Together with the anti-reflection coating, the new display ensures outstanding image quality and readability. To enable a smarter driving experience, receivers featuring 3 camera inputs allow for the utmost in convenience, flexibility, and safety.When I hire cars with CarPlay, the resistive screens that are generally available look pretty ordinary in comparison to this unit, yet they are still functional. Thanks to the "Easy Pairing" routine, pairing a smartphone for both iPhone and Android is completely easy and is initially done once via USB cable.

It offers multiple levels of connectivity, including Apple's CarPlay (iPhone 5 upwards) and Android Auto (Android phone running 5.However, I am told that the latest version of android includes this capability, so if your android phone can run the latest version of android, it might work wirelessly too. With its high-resolution display, Bluetooth technology, support for various audio and video formats, and excellent signal-to-noise ratio, it provides an enhanced and enjoyable in-car entertainment experience. With KENWOOD this type of iPhone integration is taken to a new level: Voice commands are reliably implemented via the Siri function, alternatively the large buttons can be used to control Apple maps, phone functions or the music player.

The diverse digital audio features of the Kenwood moniceivers help to implement the brilliant sound of the 24-bit D/A converter ideally even under difficult acoustic conditions in the car. Boot time from start up until it displays the very annoying and in reality useless Nanny State screen with the “I Agree” button is about 15 seconds. If you haven't used these before, they're brilliant – just connect your phone (via Bluetooth or old-fashioned USB) and you can access all your favourite apps on the move. I would have thought some sort of pop up list of already setup iPhones when you long press the CarPlay button would be a good alternative.

The Kenwood can be set up for wireless CarPlay with up to five iPhones, which is just enough for our household, plus you can always still connect over USB, as it has two USB ports for ordinary CarPlay, USB storage devices etc, and an HDMI.
