    it deadeasy to do. not had aproblem with my iPhone 4s and the DNX7210BT I've even had it streaming internet radio while crusing down the motorway.

    I had been hanging on and on waiting for them to release a unit with DAB as I justed to have it, I still have the Kenwood DAB receiver sat in the garage but it will not connect to new Krnwood units.
    I also had them install the steering wheel pluggin and that works perfectly.

    I have always had TT's up to this unit and I like TT's but I've got used to the garmin very very quickly.

    I'm guessing that at some point Kenwood will bring out a DAB pluggin and a software update to allow it to run.
    Thanks for getting back with the info. Concerning my iphone, it is a 3G model, fully up to date with the latest ios 6.1, but I'm not sure looking at the Kenwood site, whether it will work ok with the particular unit you have. That would be a shame if it doesn't, because I bought my handset outright (£460 brand new) and I have no intentions of upgrading a perfectly good iphone for a newer one, especially when it works brilliantly with the existing unit in the BLS.

    I think I could be waiting just a little longer. I'm guessing Kenwood will release a DAB unit sometime in the not so distant future and as I have plans on keeping the BLS for many years, it would probably be worth the wait. That being said, I suppose the far cheaper option would be to keep the existing head unit, by a PURE Highway 300Di http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...ource=shopping and continue to use my tomtom 820 live. Oh, choices, choices!!

    my friends on 3G iPhone works perfectly with the 7210, I was hanging out for ages awaiting a DAB option but to be honest I've listened to the radio maybe 3 times since it was installed, it's either music via the ipod or SD card or even streaming via bluetooth.

    Re: No sound

    Head unit replacement sounds interesting, are these items anti theft code protected ?
    I would not like to end up with such a radio gone and then driving home with a broken door or window...

    I received the amplifier today and miracle : it works !
    So if no sound, check for stinking amplifier, eventually open it and have a look

    Re: No sound

    Just in case, I got my original amplifier repaired by a friend who is specialized in electronics (the kind of guy who reads electronics like we do with the news paper...) as I bought another one I have a spare unit now. If needed, he might be willing to repair yours too, if you need any help or assistance, I don't mind to ask him.
