Awesome bit of ICE!
Lee Purser on 19/03/2018 5 star rating

I’ve had all the top kenwoods over the past 10 years and have found this to be one of the best, love the front and rear USB’s, and the DAB is great in the area I live and the routes I travel! Was thinking about upgrading to the 7200, but they’ve made it twin rear USB, stupid mistake!

Please can you tell me if the Bluetooth has voice control to obtain number also Please can you tell me how I store a Station Great bit of Kit THANK YOU

Great quality but lacks on ease of use
Ken Sanderson on 16/12/2015 4 star rating

This is installed in my 06' mini and I am mightily impressed. The sound quality is great when paired up with the uprated front speakers but it drives a nice amount of bass to the standard rears. I made use of the separate Sub-out to power a 8" enclosed unit and it sounds brilliant. I love the rear socket for the usb so you're not drowning in cables out front. Behind the scenes, when using an ISO adapter, you do get a large amount of cable to deal with. If you've plenty of space behind the head unit then this shouldn't be an issue. N.B. This does come with an antenna whereas most don't so you don't need to buy a separate one. The only niggle I have is the track / station up-down selector. It's a small rocker button along the bottom and it is just a little too fiddly for me. Personal preference and the only dent in the armour of this great unit. DAB is great despite a lack of stations locally and the handsfree calling is ideal. A great unit and will also blend in with your factory lighting due to the colour changing display.
