Can I play my Netflix from my phone?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2020
  When the emergency brake in the vehicle is activated, yes. Most state laws prohibit video being played from the front passenger compartment.

Is there a way to turn off the GLONASS system?
A shopper on May 23, 2021
  Hello! Not to my knowledge. That's a question that you would have to ask Kenwood directly, I believe. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!

Any provision for Sirius XM?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2020
  Hi there and thanks for reaching out! You will need the SXV300V1 SiriusXM tuner kit (and a subscription) in order to use that service.
What kind of amplifier and speakers go best with this?
Michaelangelo on Aug 21, 2020
  Hi, Michaelangelo, and thanks for reaching out to us! Unfortunately, there is no perfect answer for your question because you can go down just about any path you want to when it comes to speakers and an amplifier. I would focus more on what speakers you like (if you have the chance to audition them in-person) and find an amplifier that matches the requirements of the speakers. You are more than welcome to contact me at the store @ 215-368-8343 to discuss options.
