Great unit
John Alexander on 14/09/2017 5 star rating

It does everything I needed it to do in one nice package, no more cables & wires across my dashboard. May buy myself the remote control. Dash cam too?? Fitted at Aylestone Road Leicester, arranged with Jason & fitted by Vlad. Excellent service, highly recommended. J.

just purchased my second one, i have both a golf mk6 and a caddy for work, i brought the first for my golf and never looked back, once i got my work van i didn't want to spend a £1k on it so i purchased a £250 on off ebay. #bigmistake after a couple of hours i had to come back out again and i ended up buying another kenwood. worth every penny and looks better than the original VW nav system

  • Question: 25 May 2018
    Car: VW Transporter - 2005 >

    Hi, would this fit my T5.1 with factory fitted steering wheel controls and front and rear parking sensors?


    The DNX516DABS can be installed in your VW T5. Steering controls and sensors will remain working as normal.

    Found Useful? Yes 

  • Question: 16 May 2018
    Car: Audi A3 - 2003>

    Kenwood DNX516DABS 7.0...... I really like the look of this, any chance it will fit my car?


    no this system wouldn't fit into your car you would have to look at something like the DNX7170DABS

    Found Useful? Yes 

  • Question: 23 April 2018
    Car: VW Transporter - 2005 >

    Does the DNX516DABS come with all cabling required to do a plug & play? My 2011 T5 California has MFSW and separate head unit for phone. Should I order the head unit, antenna & microphone?


    the radio comes with all of the required parts to install it into your vehicle, when ordering the radio specify the wiring for a T5 as they are available in both t5 and t6 looms

    Found Useful? Yes
