share on:

Kenwood debuted at KnowledgeFest in Dallas this week its lowest priced double DIN AV/receiver to work with the iDatalink Maestro RR, which lets drivers swap out their factory radio while maintaining key features like OnStar and SYNC control.

In addition it released its first App Control system that lets a smartphone become a remote control for a single DIN radio.

The new double DIN receiver with Maestro RR capability is the DDX-374BT at a street price of $300.   It also has a 6.2-inch “crystal clear” screen with a viewing angle that can be adjusted up to 20 degrees for dash boards that are at an angle.  It is also Kenwood’s first receiver to include Spotify control and it has iHeartRadio control. Other features include Bluetooth and 13-band equalizer and time alignment.  Shipping is expected at the end of the month.

The single DIN KDC-BT368U will also ship at the end of August at $120 Minimum Advertised Price (MAP).  It works with Kenwood’s App Control so users can control radio features such as source and audio adjustment settings from their Android or iPhone smartphones.
