Do you recognise this Sat Nav?

Postby Colie » 08 Jul 2014, 21:44

Hello people!
I have a Kenwood KVT627DVD head installed in my car (with a 500w amp in the boot I've found - car I've just bought :-? ). By the looks of the manual some of the components are not built in i.e. external inputs. One of these is Sat Nav that feeds on to the display of the KVT. I don't know who the manufacturer of the sat nav is or where the main unit is yet (have not had the time to look). Does anyone have any idea? :-??

Usually these aftermarket flip outs have a 'brain' elsewhere in the car, usually behind the glovebox.

definitely not one I've seen before bud... GLWTSearch though...

Worst case, pull ALL the interior out and follow the wires along! :)) (Just kidding!) As Fred said, most likely a little module somewhere, probably hidden behind the glovebox or one of the rear panels as Andy suggested...

Is there an external SatNav GPS aerial? If so, may be an idea to follow the wiring back from this...

Also, maybe worth having a look on the Kenwood site. Obviously the unit has to be compatible and it may actually be a Kenwood bolt-on for which there should be a manual available to download... There should also be some screen shots which you can use to compare the screen on yours.... worth a shot :)

There are some, what I can only guess, are aerials either side of the windscreen that have small kenwood labeled boxes attached to them. Small insulated wires going from top to bottom (connected to the small boxes at the top). I will check the Kenwood site again as suggested.. And have a route around the car....

Seems likely to be a Kenwood unit then... :) Should make finding a user guide a bit easier...

Good call!!!

Looks like it could be the Kenwood KNA-DV3200 or DV2200!! MAP DVD ROM driven, funnily enough there is a DVD drive in the boot but i thought it was a redundant drive that had not been taken out! :)) HOOWWWWWWWW embarrassing! :oops: :d

Yep!
It's got some sort of sticky goo over the front of the drop down cover, this is why I thought it was redundant!!

I used to have a kenwood unit, with satnav, there was a separate box that connects to the headunit, that holds a SD card with the maps on etc if that helps
