I had the Kenwood DNX-9140 installed in an '09 Jeep Wrangler. Great unit with nice features. Using it about a month now and a few annoying features came up.

1- The unit is slow to change Ipod songs when album art is loading. Takes about 10 seconds to change songs.

2- When playing music fairly loud and backing up w/rear view from Alpine back up camera. The picture seems to get distorted in relation to the bas of the music.

3- Voice recognition is inconsistant

4- System seems to have a hard time in "4 line" mode to remember my preferences to have "Artist" on top line, "song name" second line, "Album" third line. It keeps on switching Artist and song name. No big deal but what's up with that?

I was wondering if anyone has had any of these quirks, or others, and would like to respond with their experience with this unit.

All kenwoods i have used are like that.

2- When playing music fairly loud and backing up w/rear view from Alpine back up camera. The picture seems to get distorted in relation to the bas of the music.
redo the grounds, or check charging system. Only had this happen before i did the Big 3 and then it stopped.

3- Voice recognition is inconsistant
Never seen reliable voice recognition on ANYTHING....unless you are british.

4- System seems to have a hard time in "4 line" mode to remember my preferences to have "Artist" on top line, "song name" second line, "Album" third line. It keeps on switching Artist and song name. No big deal but what's up with that?
IDK about this
