If you live in the Vancouver or Victoria area and are looking for a premium multimedia receiver with navigation, drop by Ralph’s Radio and check out the Kenwood eXcelon DNX994s. Equipped with a 6.95-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth and Garmin navigation, with a two-year warranty, the DNX994s is one of the best-equipped receivers on the market.
Intuitive Smartphone Integration
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have changed the way we receive information, are entertained and communicate while in our vehicles. Using Siri and Google Assistant voice recognition technologies, these smartphone integration solutions allow you listen and reply to text messages and make phone calls by simply talking to your radio. You can choose contacts from your phone or let the systems search the Internet for a company name. You can use these same search functions to find navigation destinations. Google Maps and Apple Maps will plan an efficient route to the destination of your choice. Both systems use real-time traffic flow information to optimize your journey.
When it comes to entertainment, you can choose from music stored on your device or stream music from Apple Music, Google Play Music or Spotify. You can also enjoy podcasts or audiobooks from your device or a streaming service.
Here in Canada, we aren’t blessed with the incredible cellular data plans that our U.S. brethren get. If you are planning a vacation, then the Garmin-powered navigation system built into the DNX994s will be your savior. Kenwood includes two years of Inrix traffic data services to help you navigate through or around congestion, detours and accidents.
Entertainment Connectivity Options
The Kenwood eXcelon DNX994s includes an HD radio tuner; is SiriusXM-ready (requires an SXV300V1 tuner module); and can play digital media files, including FLAC, DSD, WAV, AAC, WMA and MP3 files, and hi-res formats at 96 k sampling rates. Video playback includes DVD and digital formats such as MKV, H.264, WMV, MPEG 1/2 and MPEG 4.
Safety Features and Vehicle Integration
The DNX994s includes dedicated front and rear camera inputs to make maneuvering or parking your vehicle safer. Kenwood’s DRV-N520 dash camera can integrate with the receiver to record everything that happens in front of your vehicle.
Kenwood is the leader in vehicle integration options with the exceptional iDatalink Maestro RR module. Use a factory satellite radio receiver, a backup camera or parking sensors, or see the battery voltage and tire pressure information right on the screen of the radio. In many applications, your new Kenwood radio also can control the climate control system.
