June 6, 2018 — JVCKENWOOD Canada’s Automotive Division is pleased to announce the launch of twelve new Kenwood and two new JVC Multimedia products available in June.
All products include the “New WebLink App” which is a one wire connection for Android or iOS devices. The WebLink app allows you to Navigate via Waze, receive weather information, select top local businesses such as restaurants or hair stylists with Yelp and play YouTube Videos or any Music or Videos (while parked) stored on your phone through the WebLink media player.
The top Kenwood eXcelon models, the DNX995S and DDX9905S include:
• An Industry first High Definition Capacitive Touch Screen that displays 2.7 million pixels instead of the typical 1.5 million.
• The 6.8” screens also have a luminance rating of 600 compared to the typical 400.
• They show 16.7 million colors versus the usual 262,000 colors.
• The screens also feature Anti-Smudge, Anti-Shatter and Anti-Glare Technology so they don’t wash out when viewed from side angles and remain visible even in the brightest sunlight conditions.
The Kenwood DNX995S, DNX875S, DDX9905S, DDX9705S and DMX905S feature a new Graphic User Interface with updated Icons and Information Widgets. The JVC KW-M845BW and KW-V940BW feature Live Wallpaper that synchronizes the visual display and color background to the music. All models listed include WiFi for Wireless Android Auto connectivity with select Android phones.
