Kenwood KNA DV3200

12/10/2007 approx 3.30


I have a 2006 Bmw 3 series coupe. System - Kenwood Kvt 627, with KNA DV 3200 with KNA TM320 Live Traffic unit.

I have had a lead connected to pin 8 in the 26block connection behind my instrument Speedo, this lead is connected to the white pulse cable on the DV3200. Both the green parking sensor cables have been grounded via an earth as they are not connected to the parking system.


When I have plotted my destination, the system talks to me informing me that my guidance is about to commence after calculating my route and giving me 3 options shortest, fastest etc.


Unfortunately thereafter there is no more communication from the unit apart from the visual map route displayed showing me the road in which I am travelling. There are not voice guidance on when to take a left/right turn nor is there visual guidance on the map pointing out a turn lies ahead in as many metres etc.


When I have reached my destination the unit switches back on stating I have just reached my destination.


Can you please enlighten me what the problem may be and if possible have a solution to the problem which I am currently facing.


Please note, my GPS signals have picked up at least 5-6 satellites so that is working fine also, it is just the voice guidance and on screen visual prompts of when to turn that is not functioning.




The Traffic unit doesn?t always show in the navigation set up menu as being highlighted.

Re: Kenwood KNA DV3200

I have the very same unit, what you need to do is find the vehicle speed sensor and attach the white lead to it, then connect the handbrake lead too. You can`t fool this system, if it says connect to VSS, handbrake etc then connect them. You will find that once programmed you will get all the voice prompts and re-routing as it should do.

Re: Kenwood KNA DV3200

IF there is no route guidance it is because the unit is not receiving VSS information from the vehicle.  Confirm that you are getting the VSS info from the correct source and or use Rostra Precision Control's cruise control guide to confirm your VSS wire.

KVT-719 NAV button not highlighted unable to select

Well I see no help here, but emailed kenwwod and they told me:

The Garmin menu is not accessible from the main source select screen, only thru the V.Select which you have already discovered.

The reason why "NAV" is displayed as an audio source is if you were to add a GMX30 XM Radio/NavTraffic antenna, you would be able to access XM radio (subscription required). So unless you have the GXM30, you will never use that source key.

Kna 4100 and kvt 911

the unit requires an external speaker.. make sure the sound isnt muted in the menu either.. the external speaker is made by kenwood and should have been included with the unit.

Navigation not working

Recheck your connections on the kna-g510 and ensure it is getting power, not too familar with the kvt-819, but I've got the kvt -915 and when I pull up the screen, there is an icon right by the src icon, that looks like a wrench. Press that and find A/V interface and ensure that the navigation input is set to RGB, also you can back out and go to user interface and ensure the Navigation is set to auto intstead of manual. That may be the case if it is similar to the kvt -915.

Kenwood KNA-DV4100 will not trun????

I had a similar problem, and found that it was due to not having the vehicle speed sensor hooked up to the unit. Once I did that, it started to work again.

Incidentally, I assume you're talking about the Kenwood KNA-DV4100? Also, I assume this unit has come into your hands through legitimate sources. It is NOT an accusation when I mention that electronic equipment absent of an operator manual CAN have dubious origins. Again, this is NOT an accusation. Rather, it's always good to know where such a unit came from. When an owner's manual is missing, it raises a flag - unless, of course, you know and trust the person selling it to you. At any rate, you can simply download a manual at Kenwood's website, below. Simply copy-and-paste into your internet browser's address bar:
