So last night be and my buddy took 2 hours out of the night and i installed my new kenwood dnx5120. The install went without a hitch and i LOVE this head unit.
Starting with the price, the unit retails for anywhere from 1000-1200$. I found it on amazon.com for 620 shipped yes i said 620$!!! For that price the system is amazing.
Something i want to add, do not go to a shop to get this installed unless your worried about the warraty. I looked at best buy and they wanted 200.00 to put this in. After putting it in i realized how absolutly rediculous it is to charge 200$. Anyone can do this if your take your time, almost all the wires match up to the wireing harness, except for example my backup sensor wire didnt cause i didnt get the camera so i just taped the end that was it. A few tools, 2-3 hours and some help from a buddy YOU can do this trust me!
The garmen navigation is spot on, took seconds to find a satellite and so far works great. When switching from the ipod back to it for example there is no lag it goes straight back to the map. granted i havent had time to really use it but so far its awesome.
The ipod interface is great also. it obviously takes some time to figure out how to use everything but its just about as easy as just using your ipod.
The thing i as most excited about was how good it made me stock speakers sound. I was planning on replacing them but now im not so sure, they sound great after messing with the settings.
Some little things, the touch screen is great, all the color options it has are pretty cool, my buddy who helped me says his 2000$ avic isnt even as good in some aspects.
I didnt get to bluetooth option so i cant comment on that. and i have not used to dvd player either. I know this isnt really a complete review this is just a first impression thing, i havent had time to really use the unit yet. So far i would def. recommend this head unit. Ill get pics later and if anyone has any questions about it feel free to ask. If i have any problems with it i will post them here and i will also come back and post as i further explore the system.
