Meet Kenwood's flagship navigation receiver
The Kenwood Excelon DNX994S navigation receiver does way more than just meet the strict criteria for Kenwood's prestigious "Excelon" badge — high-voltage preamp outputs, audiophile-quality audio components, and a 2-year warranty. It also delivers user-friendly control with a 7" multi-touch display, amazing smartphone integration, and accurate GPS guidance from the experts at Garmin. With the DNX994S in your dash, you'll have a wealth of options for info and entertainment right at your fingertips.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto: your phone is the key
This Kenwood's 6.95" capacitive touchscreen's a great way to explore your sources and other important info  — you can even customize the source button locations for easier access. You'll also have fingertip or voice control of your apps, whether you're using them through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. You can command select music apps (like Pandora and Spotify) through the receiver via a wireless Bluetooth connection for most Android devices.

The Kenwood KCA-IP103 cable offers a durable and car-ready Lightning-to-USB connection for your iPhone. The Scosche HDEZ10 Rugged StrikeLine cable provides a solid USB connection for most Android devices.

Two phones? No hassle
If you're driving with a passenger, the DNX994S 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 smarter with Garmin leading the way
The DNX994S boasts 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. 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.

Get around congestion with 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.

HD Radio elevates your listening pleasure
The DNX994S 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.

Files, discs, and more
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. A pair of detachable USB inputs let you add audio from an iPod or flash drive, including playback of high-res FLAC and WAV files. You also get an SD card slot for playing digital music files and making map updates.

Discover the joy of satellite radio
Why struggle with stations fading away as you travel? You can hook up a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner (not included) to this receiver and access the wide variety of entertainment, sports, news, and commercial-free music satellite radio provides — and your favorite stations are always there. The DNX994S works with TuneMix and SportsFlash, which give you even more customizable options for listening the way you want.

Hear the difference
Kenwood equipped this Excelon receiver with custom-made or carefully curated sonic components— including three sets of gold-plated 5-volt preamp outputs — to deliver superb audio performance. Kenwood's Drive EQ+ technology boosts certain frequencies that are easily masked by wind and tires rolling on asphalt. It also enhances your music's bottom end as your speed increases, so you can really feel those tunes as you drive. You can also craft the sound to your ears' content with a 13-band equalizer and other soundshaping tools at your disposal.

Add up to two cameras
This Kenwood is capable of connecting two different cameras, so you can see more when you're getting in and out of tight spots. If you've got a pair of rear-view cameras, you can reverse the image of the one up front to get a more realistic picture. The receiver also features a dedicated input for Kenwood's DRV-N520 Drive Recorder so you can capture your travels in high definition.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities.
