Manufacturer's Description:
Kenwood’s new in-car CD/iPod Control system now includes state-of-the-art DAB/DAB+ and DRM decoding. Using the latest digital chip set means for the first time listening to digital radio on the move is free of annoying breaks and distortion. Clever technology will even switch from DAB to FM (and back again) if there is a local signal problem. The system includes a discrete window film aerial avoiding the need to drill a hole in the vehicles body as previously required with less sensitive receivers.

Want to add Bluetooth hands-free calling with music streaming from your phone? Just add the KCA-BT300 Bluetooth interface.
