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

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 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.
Call these guys at hifiaudio.com 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.
The problem I had was with the remote control unit for the steering wheel controls. It shorted out. The head unit was fine. But, when the sterring control unit is shorted it also prevents the hand held remote from working.
