Need a hand getting around? Count on Kenwood
Driving used to be fun, you know? Top down, open road, tunes crankin'... those were the times. Now everyone's in a rush, stuck in traffic, and distracted beyond belief. Wouldn't it be nice to have a friend in the dash that could provide some assistance to making the daily commute a little less ordinary? The Kenwood Excelon DNX696S navigation receiver sports a beautiful 6.75" display, reliable Garmin guidance, and much more. Phone-friendliness comes via compatibility with both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. And Kenwood's Excelon rating means it sits atop their product line with a 2-year warranty, high-voltage preamp outputs, dual detachable rear USB inputs, and top-notch audio components for hard-hitting sound.
Plays well with your smartphone
Kenwood designed the DNX696S to work seamlessly with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. No matter what phone you (or your passengers) prefer, you can access the apps you need without getting distracted from the matter at hand — driving your vehicle. The DNX696S gives you fingertip or voice control of your apps, and its gorgeous 6.75" resistive touchscreen display offers plenty of real estate to check out your sources and other important info — you can even customize the source button locations for easier access. And even if you're not into using Android Auto to access streaming services, you can still get control of select music apps (like Pandora and Spotify) through the receiver via a wireless Bluetooth connection.
Pair with two phones at once
If you're driving with a passenger, the DNX696S can pair with up to two phones at once. You'll be able to designate one phone as the priority but be able to switch between the two with ease, as well as have access to both phonebooks.
Drive stress-free with Garmin guidance
Leave worries about getting lost behind, as the DNX696S supplies Garmin maps of the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands. You'll also get reliable routing with spoken street names at turns, lane assistance, and realistic views of complicated intersections. 3D terrain views give you the lay of the land for even more assurance. Kenwood's interface also provides more opportunities for split-screen control, so you can still follow the maps as the stereo shows you what's playing or who's calling.
2 years of free INRIX traffic reports
You'll get a free 2-year subscription to INRIX traffic service, which provides quick updates on congestion along your route. You'll need to have your smartphone with the app on it connected to the receiver to take advantage of these traffic updates. INRIX updates require an in-app purchase after the 2-year subscription ends.
Upgraded interface and Photo Frame Widget
Kenwood refreshed their user interface for 2019, so it's easier than ever to find and switch between your favorite sources and check out album artwork and map details. The new Photo Frame Widget feature lets you create a slideshow of up to 500 images from a thumb drive on the receiver's home screen.
HD Radio™ tuner for enhanced sound
The DNX696S also features an HD Radio tuner. You'll enjoy much-improved AM/FM sound quality when you're tuned into a local participating station, and there's no subscription required — just tune it in like a regular radio station.
Spin through your sources
This receiver will play all your CDs and DVDs, including discs loaded with music files, while an A/V input offers connection for more audio/video sources. Two rear USB inputs let you add audio from an iPod or flash drive, including high-resolution FLAC and WAV files. You also get a microSD card slot for playing digital music files and map updates.
Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities.
You'll need a wired connection to your parking brake to access settings and other features on this receiver. Your parking brake must be connected and set in order to view video on its screen.
