Question about Kenwood DNX5120 DVD Navigation System GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Losing phone book info

I have the DNX5120 w/ BT-200. I was able to download my phone book, but after killing the engine and then, later on, starting it back up, my phone book info is gone. The only thing that automatically downloads upon connecting is my incoming and outgoing call logs, but the phone book does not. I did see something on line about updating the BT-200, but I'm not sure this would fix the problem. Any thoughts?

    I have been to soundomain and I did do the BT200 update. It's actually working, I just have to go into my bluetooth settings and designate the phone as a special device. After that, the phonebook downloads fine. I just have to do this everytime I start the car.

    Just had the thing installed and got the BT-200 and the HD Turner and my installer said at this point I can only do one or the other so had the HD Tuner put in and every time the system powers down all the resets are lost?

I believe that the 5120 has an EPROM issue and has to be serviced. at least with the HD adapter that's the issue(losing presets).

How to reset the code to a kenwood dnx5120

i'm not sure if this will reset it, but in the front of your navi system there is a tiny hole (below the volume control knob). It'd probably be best to use the end of a paper clip or the tip of the pen, but you could just click that and it should reset the system. If anything, the code should be 0000, at least my default code was that. Hope this helps!
