About the Kenwood Excelon DNX997XR:  High Res Navigation Multimedia Receiver


Kenwood's "Excelon reference" imprint has been around for a little while now — long enough that Kenwood could coast on reputation alone.  But they keep finding new ways to improve their best stuff, and the Kenwood Excelon DNX997XR Navigation is no exception.  Includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and an 6.8" touchscreen display, it's already flagship-worthy.  For 2020, Kenwood added better phone compatibility, camera enhancements, and three free years of Garmin map updates.  The Excelon reference badge also gives you the benefits of a 2-year warranty, high-voltage preamp outputs, and audiophile-quality audio components.
