Thread: Kenwood Radio

  1. #1

    Default Kenwood Radio

    As of now I have the Kenwood KDC-225mr but am looking to upgrade the easiest way. I need somewhere to plug in my ipod. Anybody have an idea on what model I would need to upgrade to so it will still fit in the same spot and still work with my remote?

    If your reffering to the Aewire remotes then good luck! I'm going through that now myself as i replaced my Kenwood with a Pioneer ipod/USB head unit and they don't work with the Pioneer. It looks like i'll be buying two Pioneer remotes!

    Yea, that is why I was trying to find a Kenwood that had the plugins. Did you search for one?

    I have a cable similar to this one.. works great. My head unit is a little different, but I think if it have a CD changer port, this should work.

    actually, mine is more like this one.. has lots of connections.. still charges the ipod too

    Thanks for the info. I do not have a CD changer, so do you know if the CD player I have has that plugin?

    I have the same radio with the Kenwood IP500 (I think is the model number) iPod adapter and it works like a charm.

    Ian,

    I am looking to get the IP500 for my boat. My one question is does the remote on the drivers side work? I am looking for play /stop and next track on my Ipod.

    wbarksda,

    I have the same pheripheral device as ABC with mutiple connections (ipod, rca, and 1/8 mini plugs) got it at best by for about 35 bucks.

    yes your 225mr has the cd changer port as listed above, here is a link to the manual. enter your e-mail and it pops up on screen in a pdf.
