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

    Why would the Navigation be listed on the main menu if you weren't supposed to access it there??
    I can get to Navigation using the "V" button on the unit but nothing. No satellites. It says "Nav" in a blue bar with a black screen.

You have to select your video source to GPS instead of the source in the main menu to GPS

You should go back to that place who installed it for you and ask them. I'm not an expert, just another poster with another problem.

KNA G510 update software and add POI file

They either installed it under a seat (easy) or behind the dash (hard). It's probably behind the dash, which means it's gotta be all taken apart. When they were installing the head unit they prolly just stuck it right behind it. So it's basically a pain in the ***. You'd be able to find it by following the wires from behind the unit. I have the same problem, I might just take it to the guy who installed it and have him do it. Call around to different stereo installers, they may charge you like 30-60 bucks to have it done... it's probably worth it considering the pain it is getting the whole dash apart and back together again.

Visit for latest firmware updates. Some of the updates are specific to map software (Garmin for KNA-G510) or bluetooth (Parrot for KCA-BT200) only.

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.

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 DDx8017 with navigation

Which NAV system are you using with it? KNA-G510, etc needs to be plugged into the NAV port on back and then you need to go into the System Settings to enable the NAV option and voice interruptions correctly. You'll want to look for AV Interface in the System Settings.

Here is the DDX8017 manual for some help:
