Dnx7100 ipod video

Do you really have to have 1.2 software to opperate your ipod through this unit? I have a problem where when I start up the system it reads the ipod but shortly after it stops and starts over. This only happends to the unit while listening to the ipod. I also cant play videos throught the ipod... I did once but no more

    I just got the DNX7100 Professionally Installed and I cannot see the Video from the I Pod Classic 160GB. I can hear the Audio Just Fine. I thinkI have the KCA-iP300V Video Direct Cable. Based on Kenwood's Support Team, I just Upgrared the Firmware to the latest 1.09 Version. Now the only difference I see is that I can see the Artist Picture, instead of NO FILE/NO PICTURE/NO DATA (one of these).

    The Kenwood unit shows the iPod's first song's data but then it just stays there. It also resets the iPod avery 20 minutes or so. Very annoying

    My DNX7100 will play the ipod video with no problem but my wife's nano 3rd generation will play but the playlist won't show and the info on the current song comes on right but wont change when the song changes. We can FF to the next song but that is the only thing that works. We have downloaded the latest software but it still doesn't work right.

    For certain music, the system screen don't change/adjust to the songs ex. song countdown don't move or when changed song, screen stays on previous song. Functions on display does not work.

I have dnx7100 and I can't get my iphone 3g to work with it. Is there something I can do to make it work?

If you are trying to use the phone handsfree then you will need to get the bluetooth module. If you are trying to use your phone like an iPod then you will need to use the line-in jack and not the iPod usb kit. The unit does not support the iPhone, only the iPod. You will just have to control the music straight from your phone. I do however use the usb port as a charger for my iPhone.

I need to know how to remove my DNX7100 from my

I have a 2004 ford escape so it may be similar, but I just pop open the front section of panel that is around the headunit and heating controls and what not with a flathead screwdriver. That should pop open really easy!! Than on the side of the dnx7100 there are locks holding it in that you can pop off to let it lose and plug the cable into the back. I have my ipod cable coming out through the glove box and works great.

Dnx7100 ipod problem

The USB source is not for Ipods, from what I understand. The Ipod needs to be connected with the Ipod cable, $50 or so. I think it is a high speed connection.

Factory controls interface?

Call these guys at and purchase the SWC module that matches your vehicle (ask for Scroche brand). Once you purchase the SWC module, make sure you read the installation instructions two or three times before you install it. Once installed, these SWC units work great. I just completed the installation on my 2008 F150 with the Kenwood DNX-7100 and my steering wheel interface works perfectly.

There is a known incompatibility with 6th gen iPods and the DNX7100. Try to find a 5.5 gen iPod or wait until Kenwood releases a software patch.
