Question about Kenwood KVT-512 Car DVD Player
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.
