Clients come to Carbon Car Systems because they know we offer more than just the best installations and service – they know we also carry some of the best products in the industry. A new product that we are anxious to work with is the Kenwood DDX916WS Multimedia receiver. If you drive a Subaru or Toyota, this unit will be of particular interest to you because it was made to fit the oversized radio opening in your dash. Let’s look at a few key features that will blow your minds.
Bigger Is Better
Most double-DIN source units measure 100 mm tall and about 175 mm wide. The DDX916WS is a full 200 mm wide. A 7-inch high-resolution display makes it easy to see all the information on the screen, and the capacitive touch interface means that the screen image is crystal-clear and razor-sharp. What has Kenwood done with the extra 25 mm of space? They have included a set of large menu navigation controls and volume buttons.
Do you like waving your arms at the TV when watching football or rugby? With the DDX916WS, arm-waving will get you a response. With Air Gesture, you can program the source unit to respond to the action of waving your hand across the face of the unit. You don’t have to touch it at all, and it still responds with a preset action. Not only is this more convenient, it also keeps fingerprints from smudging the screen of the radio. Enhanced convenience and smart engineering are part of what makes this unit so great.
The latest image-sharing technology on Android and Apple iPhone devices is Air Mirroring. With the help of the optional KCA-WL100 Wifi/HDMI dongle, you can see and hear what is on the screen of your phone completely wirelessly. You can watch your favorite YouTube videos with ease or see the traffic on Waze. Anything playing on your phone is directly mirrored to the screen of the radio. Control is still via the smartphone, so there is minimal need to touch the screen of the radio.
CarPlay and Android Auto
Being safe while behind the wheel will help ensure you will be a customer of ours for years and years. The DDX916WS includes Android Auto and CarPlay smartphone interfaces. You can read and send text messages, make phone calls, listen to your favorite music, and use the navigation software built-in to your phone safely and easily. Most functions can be operated with simple voice commands.
The Kenwood DDX916WS is the perfect navigation multimedia solution for your Subaru BRZ or Impreza, or a Toyota Hilux, Corolla, Camry or Avalon, or Scion FRS. Contact Carbon Car Systems in Blacktown NSW here to see if the DDX916WS is the perfect fit for your vehicle.
