In for one. Probably one of the best for the money. The pioneer avh-4200 is its competitor. Some great deals on that one too. Pioneer offering a $150 rebate , but i hate rebates.

No GPS? With Android auto, can you download Waze? Do you think it could also mirror your phone?

So disappointed with my last Kenwood unit, I bought the pioneer avh2300nex posted a few days ago for 325 after rebate. Haven't received it yet, but how does this one compare to it? Worth the extra 75 bucks?

$400 for a capacitive touch screen is a bonus

AVH-4200NEX is the 2016 model, AVH-4201NEX is the new one, features are really similar

DDX9903S is Kenwood answer to AVH4200NEX, made obsolete by DDX9904S

Both DDX models have capacitive screen (like the your phone/tablet)
both Pioneer are resistive screen (soft to touch, not glossy)

Feature wise both are seem to be even, both brands have loyal followers

The feature set is lacking over the Pioneer... the biggest draw I see is that it supports dual phone connections which is huge for me since I have a work and personal phone. Plus the the "fast charge" is kind of a joke since a lot of current Android phones take ~2A or even 3A but hey, at least it's more than the .5A that's standard on USB ports.

Edit: It DOES support iDatalink Maestro gauges, confirmed on the iDatalink site... I got so used to Pioneer making it blatantly obvious when they do support gauges and such.

So the only obvious things are no HDMI or AV inputs on this like on the 4200NEX. Maybe some UI differences that are hard to detail over the internet without first hand experience with both.

After skimming the manual it appears that Apple Car Play only works on input and Android Auto doesn't seem to have that limitation. So this could, in theory, support a single USB connection for either Apple Car Play or Android Auto, the Pioneer units do not. Only one port supports Car Play, and only one port supports Android Auto.

Waze was added to android auto a few month ago. https://techcrunch.com/2017/07/26/waze-finally-arrives-on-android-auto/ [techcrunch.com] I don't believe you can mirror the screen on android auto.
