With all music playback paused for the duration of the conversation and can be used for two equipped Bluetooth mobile phones. Icing on the cake is the iPod/iPhone USB direct connection. If your mobile phone is of the Android persuasion you can download our free Kenwood Music Control App to gain full control of your phones music storage and display of album, artist data

Mr Whiteley on 22/08/2016 5 star rating

Excels expectation! Easy to fit. Signals great for the dab. Bluetooth the lot exactly what everyone needs!

Kenwood KDCBT52U
Currano on 24/04/2013 5 star rating

Would definitely recommend - clear display and good sound quality. Integrates well with ipod/iphone, although I also bought a USB stick for convenience. Good price from Car Audio Centre and I had it fitted at my local branch, where they were very helpful.

Works Great with my Samsung Galaxy S2
Dean on 09/05/2012 5 star rating

I wanted a stereo that would link up well with my Android phone and after much research I decided to go with this one. I thought i'd only be able to use the Kenwood app with it but the song details are also appearing with other music apps. I use google music and it works great. I also loved the fact that I could also change the illumination to match the rest of my dashboard. Big thumbs up from me.
