Default Kenwood DMX7018DABS - Shallow Depth A/Auto & Carplay

Hi,

This is the new fully featured, shallow depth double DIN head unit from Kenwood and which also comes in at a fantastic price level. This is the first unit that has all the features in one unit, Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, DAB digital radio, shallow depth and a clean smooth/clutter free front screen. Waze support on Android Auto (the recent update that Waze also works on Apple Carplay should, I'd have thought be availabe too) Spotify support, electronic EQ and Time Alignment and crossover. Pricing level looks around the 400 level which I think is absolutely fantastic !

UK based re-seller - https://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/kenw...-8-screen.html

For anyone looking to upgrade, this unit has the best checklist for those still deciding which is the right unit to go for. I'm sure more unit's will come out over the next year or two as well, but this one really looks like a solid unit to go for!

Cheers, Dennis!

Does this require fitting kit or brackets or anything?

Cheers

Hi Joel,

Like ANY double DIN head unit, it will need a way to mount and a fascia to fit in the E46. Plenty of threads about the options there. You'll need to look at what wiring your specific car has/came with to check which harness and wiring kit you'd need as well.

Cheers, Dennis!

Might be the head unit I’ve been waiting for. Been looking forward to Waze coming to CarPlay.
