Why install a car stereo with built-in GPS? Imagine taking a trip as your car's receiver gives you directions, finds the best restaurant for dinner, and plays movies for your back seat denizens.
Navigation receivers cover all the bases, with GPS guidance, DVD playback, and a host of other useful features. You can search through millions of points of interest to locate gas stations, restaurants, museums, and other interesting spots, wherever you are. Most receivers offer Bluetooth capability for hands-free calling, along with the ability to search through your iPod playlists with touchscreen controls. Meet Kenwood's truly game-changing navigation receiver.
Keep up with what's going on in the world outside your car with the Kenwood Excelon DNN990HD navigation receiver. It's got the standard features you're looking for, including a 6.95 touchscreen display, outstanding guidance with traffic reports, Bluetooth®, a built-in HD Radio tuner, smartphone compatibility, and much more. But what you haven't seen before is how this receiver works with the cloud to bring your favorite sources of information and entertainment on the road with you. Wi-Fi® opens up a world of possibilities.
Kenwood built the DNN990HD to work with Wi-Fi hotspots, like ones you can create in your car with your smartphone or a mobile hotspot device (data charges may apply). Once you've set up a Wi-Fi hotspot in your car, the receiver connects to the signal; that gets you into the cloud, which is where you can employ connected services for music, video (when parked), social media, navigation extras like traffic and parking help, and more. Link to your media through the Kenwood Server. You'll need to set up an account with Kenwood's server online to take full advantage of the DNN990HD's connected services. You can sync your account with any number of web-based services you use, and then enjoy them through the receiver as long as you're connected.You can also access music files from your own cloud-based digital locker accounts, so you won't have to remember to bring any tunes with you ever again. You can add up to four accounts for other drivers, and your Kenwood receiver will remember each user's preferences and content. Access your calendar or social media feeds with your fingertip, then listen to updates being read to you.
Easily pull up feeds and sources. The DNN990's home screen offers four primary categories: social, media search, main source, and apps. YouTube, and iHeartRadio, and optional SiriusXM satellite radio. You can pull up your Facebook and Twitter accounts with one finger to learn what your friends are up to. And you can even use your voice to do a cross-platform search for music.
Simply say the name of an artist, and the receiver will search across all your connected sources (such as a thumb drive, iPod®, or your cloud-based music account) for what's available, saving you the hassle of looking through your devices for that one special song. Have emails and status updates read to you.
Text-to-speech capability reads arriving emails aloud, so you can concentrate on driving instead of looking at the screen. It also reads status updates from Facebook and Twitter, as well as RSS feeds you're subscribed to and your calendar events. An Internet connection is required to use text-to-speech functions.
When you're connected to the Internet, the DNN990HD is also able to convert your speech into written entries for emails and social media updates. All you have to do is push the speech-to-text button and speak aloud. You can even add reminders to your calendar this way.
