When you're ready to hit the road, there's nothing worse than waiting for your GPS to get going. Kenwood's DNX570HD navigation receiver features Insta-Search and Insta-Route, which find points of interest and routes five times faster than previous models, so you can start your journey without delay. It uses predictive text so you'll even save time typing in the name of your destination. You'll also get reliable routing from the experts at Garmin, plus a level of smartphone connectivity that'll let you take full advantage of your phone's features while allowing you to drive safely.
Stay connected with your phone
The DNX570HD is a smartphone lover's road companion, but it works in different ways for different devices:
iPhone®: With a separate cable, you'll get control of your Pandora® Internet radio, Aha Radio, and iHeartRadio apps through the receiver's touchscreen when connected. App Mode also gives you limited control over other select apps on your phone. The DNX570HD also offers compatibility with your iPhone's Siri® feature for select email, Bluetooth® calling, and iPod® commands.
Android™: You'll get control of your smartphone's Pandora, Aha Radio, and iHeartRadio apps through Bluetooth, so no cable needed. The Kenwood Music Control app also gives you easy search and playback functions of your Android phone's music through the receiver.
BlackBerry®: You'll get Pandora Internet radio app control through Bluetooth, so no cable needed.
Free built-in NAVTEQ traffic reports
NAVTEQ traffic information for major metropolitan areas comes with the DNX570HD, at no cost to you. You'll be able to see congestion along your route and find a way around it from the driver's seat.
Bluetooth for hands-free convenience
Built-in Bluetooth lets you make and take calls through the receiver via your compatible phone. When your iPhone's connected with a cable, the receiver will automatically send a pairing request to your phone — all you have to do is accept or deny the request. The Kenwood DNX570HD also supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of any Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone.
HD Radio™ tuner
The DNX570HD also features an HD Radio tuner. You'll enjoy much-improved AM/FM sound quality when you're tuned into a local participating station, and there's no subscription required — just tune it in like a regular radio station.
More audio and video options
This receiver will play all your CDs and DVDs, including discs loaded with music files, while a rear A/V input offers a connection for any other audio/video sources. You can plug your iPod or a thumb drive into the rear USB port, and enjoy all your favourite albums and playlists. No matter what you're listening to, Kenwood designed the DNX570HD to send a crisp, clear audio signal to your speakers, and you can use the 3-band parametric equalizer and other soundshaping tools to adjust the sound for your vehicle.
The high-resolution 6.1" WVGA screen is perfect for viewing video from DVDs or other sources when you're parked. You can tap into video content on your iPod or iPhone with the help of an iPod cable (not included). When you're on the road, you can play movies through a rear-seat monitor for your passengers. It's a great way to combat boredom on long road trips.
You can hook up a satellite radio tuner (not included) to the receiver and access the wide variety of entertainment, sports, news, and commercial-free music satellite radio provides. You can also connect a rear-view camera, so you can see what's behind you as you back out of a tight parking space. If you're looking to add amps and subs, you can take advantage of three sets of preamp outputs available, including a dedicated subwoofer output with low-pass filter and level control.
iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your SYNC features
If your Ford vehicle comes with factory SYNC features, you don't have to worry about losing your favourite conveniences to get navigation and better sound — the DNX570HD offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module. For SYNC systems, you'll be able to retain voice-controlled features, steering wheel audio controls, and factory audio functions, plus enjoy expanded functionality including gauges, climate controls, a distance sensor, and tire pressure monitor. The DNX570HD will also be compatible with GM OnStar and Chrysler uConnect systems, with adapters from iDatalink coming soon.
Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Kenwood stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.
Note: Bluetooth compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.
Note: If you're going to use your iPod or iPhone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.
