I have been doing lot of research over the past few days and from various forums, i closed in on two models. Dynavin D99 and Kenwood DNX6990HD.
Dynavin looks perfect in the car with oem look, but i have seen several bad reviews about installation problems and android problems.
I went to Kenwood webiste and looked at the installation instructions for 6990.It sas to install this unit --
*Permanent modifications to the factory radio/heater controls are required in order to install this Crutchfield kit.
*If the factory radio is replaced, the factory AUX input connection will be lost.
*Kit cannot be used if the vehicle is equipped with heated seats
*You will need to run a wire from the radio location to your vehicle's fusebox for a source of accessory power.
Are these major problems??? my car is still under factory warranty, so i dont want the installation to disturb to my factory unit.
Can you also post the pics of your car with kenwood unit.
please provide feedback about installation, performance.
It would be really helpful to me to take a decision.
Also, i live in San Diego. Any recommendation of good installation shops??
Please please please help..
any changes you make to the car will make it look different, not necessarily better. did you see the pics of the kenwood install !! yuk. atleast dynavin looks like its fitted for the car. enjoy your stock car while in warranty as it is. get a phone ac mount for gps. any modification you do will not be perfect in perfect sense as you compromise on looks, build quality etc etc and then one gets bored of whatever is installed.
