I just bought a Kenwood KDC-MP439 and the box says made for ipod........ But i dunno how to use the feature...... Help!!!!!
This particular model is advertised as being "made for iPod," but this claim is a bit misleading. Most decks advertised this way mean "iPod ready," but require you to purchase an additional accessory to use that functionality.
In the case of the KDC-MP439, you can use your iPod with the deck by connecting the iPod to the AUX connection on the right side of the faceplate. Making this connection will require you to purchase a cord with 3.5mm male audio connectors on both ends (it's the same connector on your headphones that plugs into the iPod's headphone jack, only you'll need one with that connector on both ends of the cord).
If you'd like to take advantage of the wireless Bluetooth functionality of the iPod, you will need an iPod Touch (2G, 3G, or 4G versions) and the Kenwood accessory KCA-BT100. This component adds hands-free Bluetooth functionality to your stereo. You can find this module at many locations in a range of prices. For example, eBay has them for prices as low as $39.99 (may be a minimum bid for an auction-type listing; be sure to check the listing type if you go this route). Online retailers seem to vary between $99.99 and $150 or so. These will include a manual that should provide instructions for pairing your iPod with the stereo unit.
