  • Kenwood DMX-7017DABS CarPlay & Android Auto car stereo is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from When you can see it, it's OK Bought this and fitted it into my VW T5 (previously had an Android head unit). Fitting was no problem and connections good. The sound is better than the Android head units. Problems - the bar across the bottom is in the way of pressing the on screen 'buttons', it may be fine on vehicles where the unit is lower down. Biggest issue is the screen - the sunny weather we have been having has just made it impossible to see...I don't mean hard, I mean impossible! No amount of brightness or angle adjustment has helped. In the evening it is fine but using the satnav (via phone) is useless. This may not be true of all fitments in other cars but in a T5 - forget it. Would be taking back if I hadn't already installed GPS receiver etc. The overall experience of the unit is not that great - seems overpriced for something that relies on your phone to work properly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit! I researched CarPlay stereos and my final choice was between a Pioneer and this. I liked the interface on this unit and the Halfords fitter recommended it. DAB works well most of the time, sometimes lose the signal but it’s where I often lose my phone signal too so probably a black spot. It doesn’t always come back on if I’ve used an app on CarPlay (texts etc) and I have to come back to main menu, select DAB then go back into CarPlay. Trying to make a call on the move can be difficult as trying to get the phone symbol to respond by touch is not easy. It can take 9 or 10 attempts - it could be due to it being in the bottom right hand corner so the angle of your finger might be a little out but it’s frustrating all the same. Once you manage to access it, the calls are really clear. I initially had problems where my phone book wouldn’t upload onto the unit. After a bit of research I found out that you had to go into the Bluetooth connection itself and turn the phone book transfer option on. First time I’ve ever seen this requirement when connecting a phone by Bluetooth but thought it would be useful to share with iPhone users. Would have preferred it to come with digital antenna but I had to buy that separate. The facia for my car was quite expensive which bumped the cost of the overall purchase up quite a lot. (Astra) Sound is great (once I found the controls to change the sound).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stereo Once I got android auto sorted (ground the parking sensor wire) it now works a treat. I have been looking for a new head unit it for my Vw T5 noticed Halford had it on offer...... Couldn't say no..... Glad I did it looks the fogs and sounds great, works well with Spotify. Halford postage was spot on too, really quick.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice piece of kit Great value as I got it at a price discount from Halfords. Had to fit it myself as their expert was at a loss when she looked at my van. Good sound, not the most obvious of menus to navigate, but does what it says on the box. Shame the GPS receiver doesn’t enhance the phone signal on Android or Apple phones on Auto Android and CarPlay.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kenwood DMX-7017DABS Very good! Very pleased with this purchase DAB works flawlessly (although no DAB antenna is included which is very poor. Autoleads SMB - DAB-AA1 works well if you can't use an external antenna) H264/MP4 movies play well through USB (When not driving!). You can also connect connect a video/music player through the composite connection Android auto is useful for turning the head unit into a large sat nav but the choice of music players is limited (no Poweramp) Bluetooth music control is very good (after firmware update) One thing to note the touch screen is resistive (pressure) rather than capacitive (like smartphones) but works well enough

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice unit but couple of annoying bugs Very pleased with this head unit, only things I wasn’t aware of before fitting. I needed this mainly for the two Bluetooth connections, when an iPhone is connected via usb for the CarPlay favility it knocks of the second Bluetooth connection. Also whenever I try to download the second phones phone book it crashes the unit and it doesn’t download. Not a major issue but annoying as it should do it.
