Overview Features Details Accessories

It's cool to command your car A/V system from a touchscreen receiver, and even cooler when you add the convenience and safety of built-in Bluetooth® for hands-free calling. Kenwood's DDX418 DVD receiver allows you to conduct calls with just a touch or two on the screen, no phone fumbling required. When you're listening to music, you'll see song and artist info displayed, bright and clear, and you can also use the touchscreen to change sources, choose music, select DVD menu items, or adjust EQ settings. For just the right look, you can set the receiver's control buttons to match the colour of your vehicle's illumination.

iPod® and other options
Use Kenwood's iPod cable to connect your iPod to the receiver for full access to your audio and video content. You can browse your playlists by album art, play video from your iPod, and watch your favourite DVDs on the built-in screen when you're parked, or add an external screen and wireless headphones so your passengers in the back can watch while you drive.

Play your favourite music
You can plug a thumb drive full of music into the receiver's USB input for hours of road music, or spin your favourite CDs, including recordable discs loaded with MP3, WMA, and AAC files. The front-panel A/V input comes in handy for gaming consoles and other audio/video sources.

Install Kenwood's KNA-G610 navigation module, and you'll control navigation functions right on the touchscreen. Voice prompts guide you to your destination, and the Garmin-powered navigation system features 2D and 3D views for impressive detail. Check out the DDX418 navigation package if you appreciate a bargain — you'll save $250 compared to buying the receiver and navigation module separately.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use this adapter 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 with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

Great head unit for the price February-05-12
Reviewer: Joe L. from Drums, PA  
Alot of features packed into this unit. The menus are easy to navigate through. Bluetooth picks up my phone flawlessly every time I enter the vehicle. (just make sure you're not on a call while getting into the car. It hung up on me while connecting). The navigation feature is an awesome add-on. Vert fast calculations and easy to use...It's a Garmin (enough said). USB is very easy to use to view pictures or listen to songs. It is so much easier to add songs to a flash drive than making a new disc. I just wish that the flash drive didn't need to stick out of the front of the radio. In the pictures, it looks like there is a usb extension out the back of radio, but it is for Bluetooth adapter only. I don't listen to much radio, but the reception comes in good. I just wish that you could name the stations. Unless I missed something in the setup, my presets constantly change display by what was last read on rds. Not a real big deal, but I don't care what they were playing last time I had that channel on. I don't have an amp setup at this time, but how much money did Kenwood save by cutting out the 3rd set of rca's. Front+rear or Front+Sub? just put the extra rca's there. ALL in All, great radio for the price. Lots of cool features.

Overall, I would not recommend this product.  Wish I would have never purchased it.  Kenwood normally makes great products, but they dropped the ball on this one.  Hopefully, they do better moving forward.

My son is very happy with his new Kenwood stereo for his truck.  It sounds great and is very simple to use.

Great Bang for the Buck January-27-12
Reviewer: Mike from Texas  
The interface is very easy to use.  After going through the initial settings I was up and running in less than 5 minutes.  I had no issues in creating my personal sound settings thanks to the touchscreen.  It interfaces rather quickly when using Bluetooth to stream audio from your phone to the unit, I have had no issues so far.  I also added the KNA-G610 Navigation unit which has been a big plus in my day to day use. The sound quality is clean and really brings out the highs, mids and lows.  Things that you expect from an aftermarket unit.

DDX418: a very cool receiver January-23-12
