Kenwood KVT-512 with bluetooth setup troubles

I have an iPhone and when I turn on the bluetooth function then do the same on the deck it comes up blank. One instruction manual says to check the other on how to set it up so i'm left confused? I had it professionally installed and they never asked to see my phone or anything so I'm not sure if they missed a step or if it's something I can resolve on my own. Thanks

    Yep, me too. I'm connected, but no sound for my phone via bluetooth, and my ipod via ipod connector.

With my BMW I had to connect both the solid blue (pwr ant) wire and the blue with white stripe (p conn) to the solid blue wire from the factory harness.

It isn't obvious that either of these are needed as the KVT-512 has it's own power supply but the way most factory power amps are installed the power from the KVT-512 is not used and the car manufacturers power amp needs to be turned on.

If you are listening to the radio the pwr ant wire will turn on the power amp, this didn't seem obvious because the BMW doesn't have a power antenna. And when you are using the DVD player or the iPod connection you need the P Conn wire to turn on the car power amp as the ant pwr is disabled because you are no longer using the radio and Kenwood assumes you will not need the antenna so no power to this lead.

Solder all three wires together and you should have sound all the time.

I have a xo vision xo1943bt stereo and when I try to hook up Bluetooth to my iphone iit says to enter pin # what is that and where do I find pin #


The PIN number is to be able to pair your mobile device with the bluetooth device. OK, the default pin number for your model is 0000.
I'll leave a link here for you to download the manual. http://www.xovision.com/pdf/XO1915BT.pdf

Why is it error-10 on my pioneer?


The manual is clear about this. There is a power failure to the bluetooth. If switching off and on (ignition switch) does not help, you should contact a dealer or a repair centre.

Ddx 419 no sound ipod


No offense but this is actually not the solution. There is a quirk with some Kenwood DDX 419. The manual on page 24 makes it clear that it is supposed to play audio through an ipod cable alone, only if you want to stream audio and video or the Garmin App should you need the other cable with the dual plugs (usb and audio). I bought one for my car and had it installed last week and it works right from the USB (only) with my iphone 4s and does not need the extra audio plug in which is inferior sound quality (analog) compared to the USB only (digital). I bought a second deck for my wife's car and had them install it this week and it did not work with the USB alone. The one on demo in Future shop did not work either with the USB alone. The manual for the DDX 419 makes it clear that it is supposed to stream audio without the extra cable. It reads, "To listen to the music (digital): USB Audio cable for iPod/iPhone-- KCA-iP102 (optional accessory). Look up the cable by google searching and you will see that even on the Kenwood site it is a regular iPod/iPhone cable. There is obviously a glitch with certain decks and they are not addressing it. I am returning mine and getting a Pioneer.

If the wire your referring to is blue/white it is to cut on external amplifiers. If you go to Crutchfield.com and type in your model number there is a pdf file for the manual on the right hand side about half way down, it will also show you what accessories for ipod control.

JVC KD-NX5000 NOT WORKING PROPERLY


I had the same problem, where the Sat radio, the bluetooth and the ipod were all non-functional. Turns out, they all go through one central hook-up, so you have to make sure that connection is good.

When mine did not show up or function, I looked at the install under the foot board of the front passenger seat that the installer did, and nothing looked out of whack. Upon closer inspection, one of the cables was had been pressed out of it's proper place and loosened enough to cause a bad connection.

I don't care for the install, but there was no problem with the equipment, so check all of your connections. Even to the point of pulling them out and reconnecting them to see if that fixes the problem.

Bluetooth transfer of phone book?


I got a solution:

Used hardware:

Pioneer DEH-P65BT
Jailbroken!! Iphone 3g FW: 3.1.2.
Mac or PC (addressbook on Mac or Outlook on Win)

Steps:

- Sync your contacts trough Itunes with your PC or Mac
- Go to addressbook on Mac (or Outlook on win) and export all your contacts to a vcf file (Called Vcards in addressbook)
- Copy the vcf file to your Iphone (iphoneExplorer / SSH / DiskAid or other solution)
- Download iBluetooth (I used it from the Xsellize source)
- Set up you radio to PhoneBook Transfer (Your phone is not connected to the radio at this point)
- In iBluetooth browse to the VCards.vcf and send it to the Pioneer unit.
- It now says transfer done and the phonebook is stored.

Posted this because it took me days to get it working. Haven't found a working solution on the net.

Also transfering the phonebook from another phone isn't a solution because however the phonebook will be stored it won't be usable by your iphone. The pioneer registers the phonebook to a device so it's absolutely necesarry to transfer it from the actual iphone (or send it from a laptop with a spoofed BT-Mac that matches your iphone)

Good luck!
