Please confirm that this adapter will work with the stereo you intend to use. Find products that fit. My name is Ken. I seek the Holy Grail of car audio excellence. My favorite color is blue. I came to Crutchfield in During my six years as a Crutchfield Advisor, I learned a lot about the technology behind great car and home audio.

I learned even more about what people wanted in their car stereo systems. I've been a writer for car audio and fitness tech at Crutchfield since Over the last few years, I've also carved out a niche producing demo videos for our in-dash car stereos. The hands-on experience I get with car stereos while doing video production is an invaluable aid to me in learning about their exciting features.

This helps me convey that information to our customers when I write about the stereo on our website. Before coming to Crutchfield, I spent 10 years teaching music in Charlottesville area schools.

I keep my musical interests satisfied by volunteering as a classical music DJ at a local community radio station, and I stay up to date with the latest in outdoor tech by cycling, running, and backpacking. Fun facts: I've completed an Ironman triathlon, run the Boston Marathon, hiked miles of the Appalachian Trail, and lost on Jeopardy! You're in command What's cooler than taking charge of your music from the big touchscreen on a great-looking DVD receiver?

You can use the touchscreen to change sources, choose music, select DVD menu items, or adjust EQ settings with just a few quick touches of your fingertip. And for a personalized touch, you can also set the receiver's control buttons to match the color of your vehicle's dash illumination. Your phonebook transfers easily to the receiver, so it's easy to make outgoing calls — you can even use voice dialing with compatible phones.

And this Kenwood will play the music you've stored on your phone wirelessly. You'll have access to streaming video sources like Netflix, too. You can watch on the built-in screen whenever you're parked, or add an external screen and wireless headphones so your passengers in the back can watch while you drive. And you can download Garmin's "Streetpilot" app for iPhone, then use the Kenwood's big screen for navigation.

And of course you'll have control over the music and video content on your iPod. This Kenwood also works with the SiriusXM tuner not included to bring you the fantastic music, sports, and entertainment offered by satellite radio. Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls? In most vehicles, you can use an adapter to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Kenwood stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and this Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

Note: Bluetooth compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider. Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check Hands-on Research for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.
