It holds two USB connections for iPods and other players and incorporates iPod direct control into its system allowing iPod videos and music to be played through it. Like others in the eXcelon family, the KVT-819DVD has a graphical user interface and lets the consumer customize the skin that is used. This sort of personal touch shows that the makers had the user firmly in mind. Though it doesn't include them, the system is navigation ready and can be hooked up to a separately bought back-up camera.
