    I just got the kenwood 5120 with a ton of stuff the bluetooth, hd radio, ipod adapter, steering wheel control adapter, and the rear view camera.
    Can I install all of this together? seems like the steering wheel control and the bluetooth take the same plug on the back of the kenwood?
    And where did u guys hide all this stuff?

    Thanks

    steering wheel controls go thru a blue/yellow wire in the kenwood harness. im pretty sure the bluetooth uses the same connector that xm or sirius uses.

    the bluetooth has a "in" and out" port so to speak.. so you plug the hd into the "in" on the bluetooth and then plug the bluetooth into the headunit... the unit will be able to see both even tho they are plugged into the same port.... if you look at the intall manuals.. it will show it better then i can explain it.

    I have the steering wheel that comes with the bluetooth buttons. If i change the HU's with bluettoth and XM. will the steering buttons work with aftermarket HU's.

    If so, is it the same with the adapter for the volume controls?

    Thanks for the reply

    i have the same unit as you. Was thinking about XM or HD Radio. IS Hd Radio free?

    How's the quality compared to xm? I spent $$ bank on my stereo and want it to play nice sounding source, but don't know if i need to pay a monthly fee to get good suonding music. How many hd radio stations are there?

    Any suggestions?
