Looking good. Built in mirroring, Android auto and apple play! 

I have been using Kenwood HU for a while. I quite like it. Of course pioneer seem to be more popular.

Paiseh, it was a gift, so I do not know the price. Android Auto is ok , you need to download the apps first and then connect but must ensure the model that you have be set to ( on ) for automotive mirroring.

One of the top end models for 2017. It should be good enough. Wait for your user review after using it.

Ok , thanx alot , hopefully can try it when i collect car in aug. 

 

But most importantly  can tis headunit support the sound system i m gonna install ?

Juz a simple upgrade , cos many ppl told me kenwood units not very gd in supporting audio upgrades . Most ask me to get pioneer instead  esp the pioneer 8850.

If you are up for it, I can do a trade with you for a 8850 that was used less than 3 months.

Local set, local warranty.

I am also looking for local shops that carries the ddx917ws.

Anyone knows?

Thanks. Will explore that.

Reason why I need the 917 is cause my new car has a wide stereo from factory.

My current 8850 is too narrow to fit without side brackets.

i think can fit nicely  maybe u go ask . 

 

Yup it will fit very nicely and give off a factory installed feel.

But currently i am researching and trying to ask around on how to keep the OEM USB and AUX ports functions.

 

Most I see online is that they will sacrifice the OEM AUX function, but I want to keep the factory feel.

So still researching.

Do u drive a BRZ as well?

 

Cause the research I do might be only applicable to either Subarus, or Toyotas...

Actually if your headunit comes from the PI, then they should have already wired it all nicely for you already.

 

Everything should be working.

Yup alot of new Toyotas have wide screen stereos.

 

I think the 917ws would be good for you so long you not a hardcore audiophile.

If not then the 8850 is the way to go.
