Powered by Garmin and Inrix, both leaders in navigation and traffic-monitoring, this Kenwood stereo's fast-loading navigation works seamlessly for trip routing and weather and traffic reports, and can even help you find services such as gas stations along the way. ...or your phone's nav on the big screen Many receivers like the DNX893S also offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capa bility. These driver-friendly interfaces give you access to the apps and functions you use most with your compatible smart- phone, including letting you pull up your phone's nav app on the stereo's touchscreen. This is especially handy with receivers that don't include built-in navigation. With Apple CarPlay, you can tap the big icons to pull up your apps, or control it all with Siri voice commands.
