The Kenwood DMX7017DABS is fast becoming our best seller. We believe this is because it combines all the attributes of a 7" touch screen with radio cd and bluetooth with Apple Car Play and Android auto so even if a family have different makes of smart phone they can play their apps on the 7017. This enables them to utilize the navigation app on their phone and others such as Spotify. We have a unit in the shop so we can demonstrate it with the customers own phone.
This customer had a tape deck in his car and had been told it could not be replaced since the fascia to do was not available. Since he has been one of our customers for a long time we told him we would try and fabricate a new fascia .

We believe that you can see from the pictures that we were successful. The customer was delighted. He can now play the music from his phone and had a hands free phone connection, added to which he can also listen to the Sport on the Dab radio.
