Excellent value with current pricing, very straightforward iPod direct control including video, satellite navigation is powerful and very easy to use with the large display, radio and audio quality is very good. Dual zone with straightforward controls.
Won't fit all cars, still costs marginally more than standalone equivalents.
Kenwood's DNX-7200 is one of the best-value integrated headunits available, offering exemplary iPod connectivity including the ability to control iPod video content - normally something that requires the user to switch to the iPod hardware for selection. Satnav is powerful, features full European mapping. Good integration with Kenwood accessories, such as DVB tuner for Freeview TV, PS-series amplifiers, BT handsfree/audio connectivity and naturally CD-changers and so forth.
Dual zone makes this setup ideal for a people carrier where the driver wants radio and minimal distractions, and the passengers may enjoy video or video games.
