Item(s) for Sale:

Kenwood Excelon DNX-890HD and Kenwood iPod cable for App mode.

Item(s) Description/Condition:

This unit was purchased roughly a month and a half ago and installed a month ago. Condition of the unit is perfect. Touch panel is also perfect. If you have done any research on this particular head unit you will have heard reports of the unit freezing. Some people report it happening to them all the time, others say it never happens to them. It has happened to me twice since I installed it. I only mention that, not as the reason I'm selling, but I want to be up front about it. Kenwood has announced that they are working on a new firmware that is supposed to resolve this issue. This head unit has all the bells and whistles, but the best feature to me is the navigation. This head unit uses LEGIT Garmin navigation. Garmin maps, Gamin voices, Garmin themes, the whole 9. This unit also has a split screen mode while in navigation. (see pics) Sound enhancements are phenomenal and timing offsets seam spot on to me. 5 volt preamp outputs and 13 band graphic EQ.

Here is a link for all information.

I live in Riverview and work in Brandon.

I removed this from my car yesterday so it's ready to go if you want to meet up. I have a very flexible job so I could meet you virtually any time.

What do you want to see? The radio itself or different menus? I could hook it up to a battery and turn it on if you need me to.

radio itself, i was thinking we can meet up by cartunes and let Jason look at it to make sure you have all the wiring necessary do you know where that place is at on lithia pine crest?

I've heard of it and I've spoken to them on the phone a couple times, but I've never actually been to the store. It's fine with me if you want to meet there so he can take a look at it. When did you want to meet up?

whoever gives you the money first do it, dont hold back due to me, question can the sd card do video and music?

03-19-2014, 10:31 PM
I haven't used the SD card slot even once so I can't say with 100% certainty. I know it can do music without a doubt and I would imagine that it would play video as well as long as the video was in the right format.

I forgot to take a picture of the wireless remote but I have that as well and it is also in perfect condition. I have steering wheel controls so I never even used it.
