Watch this video to find out how to add Garmin navigation to many new Kenwood DVD receivers. Hint: purchase a Garmin app for your iPhone® and the Kenwood receiver becomes the navigation display.

    Can I get this app to work with KVT-516?

    Dominic DeVito from Crutchfield on 6/9/2019
    Hi Mike: Apologies but the Garmin app shown in this video is no longer available or supported for either Android or iOS. The KVT-516 was not built to work with this app, either. In theory, you could add navigation to the KVT-516 with the Kenwood KNA-G610 GPS module, but that was discontinued by Kenwood several years ago, so I'm not sure how up-to-date the maps on one you might find secondhand would be. I'm sure your KVT-516 still works great, but one of our Advisors will be happy to discuss possible upgrades if you want to reach out via chat, email, or phone.

    Fred, that stereo isn't equipped for that kind of functionality. If you want app-based nav functionality, you might want to look at stereos with Android Auto. You'll gain access to Google Maps and other apps, but not necessarily the ATT Nav app. You'll also want confirm compatibility with your phone. Give us a call and we can help you with that.

    Hi Fred: Sorry but there doesn't seem to be any way to view or control the AT&T Navigator App on the Kenwood DDX394 receiver. There are some Kenwood receivers which will allow app access through the Kenwood Smartphone Control app (for Android phones only), but they all have an HDMI input, which the DDX394 lacks.

    I have the ATT Nav app. on my Samsung phone. Can I interface it to the DDX394 Kenwood system in my vehicle?

    Zach, no, that feature has been phased out of select Kenwood receivers. However, choosing a receiver with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay would give you access to certain navigation apps on your compatible smartphone.

    Would I be able to add this feature to Kenwood ddx374bt?

    Leo, I can't speak to that model specifically since I can't find any info on that model number. However, if it's not already a navigation receiver, there's no way to add navigation. You'll need a separate nav device, and be sure that it is loaded with Australian maps.
