Released January, 2008
The Pros:IPhone playlist always resumes where it left off. IPhone plugs in using the standard charging cable, don't need any proprietary cords. Output is clear and high-quality, makes the most of even OEM speakers.
The Cons:Installation guide is confusing, poorly designed and mixes 3 languages. Wiring harness doesn't fit snug, need to use extra securing mechanisms such as wire ties.

Its quick browZer allows users to search their iPod songs by genre, artist or album. It also features a remote control and has a 4x52 Watts maximum power with a 2-channel preamp output. It plays the usual CD, CD-R/RW, MP3/WMA/AAC/ATRAC3, as well as the AM/FM radio. Users in forums claim that this is the only car audio receiver that is compatible with a 3G iPhone. This piece is $30 more than the Kenwood KDC-MP342U but with an extra 2 watts per channel, the rest of the features are pretty much the same.
