Released March, 2009
The Pros:Bluetooth connection is automatic when you get in the car, don't even need to touch your phone. Calls are clear on both ends of the conversation. Navigation system is well designed with a nice user interface.
The Cons:IPod interface has a lot of problems, almost impossible to work with. Pre-outs are a bit low-voltage, come in at about half what most head units provide.
The Kenwood DNX7140 is a high end all-in-one audio/visual head unit. It features a 6.95 inch touchscreen that allows both a tilt up for more direct viewing and a downward tilt to avoid sun glare. Built-in navigation allows for complete turn-by-turn directions to most of North America.
