Question about Kenwood KVT-512 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Kenwood KVT-512 iphone compatibility

I currently have a Kenwood in-dash dvd player model KVT-512.

I also have a kca ip300v (ipod connection).

I want my iphone to work on my in dash player. but infortunetly that pesky airplane mode comes up everytime I plug in my iphone.

My in dash firmware is updated to the latest update.

Also my iphone.

I was wondering if I purchase the KCA ip-301v would this solve my problem?

I contacted the good people at kenwood but they told me they were unsure.

Just ignore the airplane mode prompt and if your wiring is correct everything should work.
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 plug my ipod to the stereo but my stereo screen still says discconected


you have to go to the kenwood site and download the firmware update go to this page http://www.kenwood.com/cs/ce/mm/firmware/2008/eng.html

after you download the file unzip it and burn it with either nero or roxio, as a data file insert the cd on your kvt-512, if it reads DISK ERROR, press the reset button on the front of the stereo, once the screen comes back up select the DVD function, the system update should start from there. let it finish once it does then you'll be able to plug in your ipod. oh and ofcourse for this you should know that you need the ipod adapter, depending on what you want to do with it for instance i have the KCA-iP300V which allows me to view videos from my ipod as well.
