Music fans can directly control Pandora, Spotify, and iHeartRadio from the receiver or stream music from up to five phones with a “DJ” feature.
The DVD-equipped V940BW costs for 700 while KW-M845BW sells for 600. The top-end DNX995S costs for $1,500 and offers Garmin navigation on a 6.8-inch capacitive HD touchscreen and DVD playback.
Meanwhile, there are three Kenwood head units that offer trio of units with more finger-friendly capacitive screens, Sirius XM satellite radio support, two camera inputs, streaming from Pandora and Spotify, a proprietary dash camera connection and additional model-specific perks, and WebLink for controlling Waze, YouTube, and Yelp.
All of these JVC and Kenwood head units also offer Apple CarPlay support for iOS users.
