You are not alone if you are finding it difficult to upgrade your factory system, replace your factory stereo or have lease restrictions on your vehicle. There are many in your situation, and because of the high-demand, Kenwood took it upon themselves to help end your frustrations. Kenwood's CarPortal KOS-V1000 eXcelon unit lets you dramatically improve audio performance and allow you to integrate the extra gear you crave for a satisfying mobile audio/video experience. The KOS-V1000 does all this while keeping the stock radio in the dash and the factory look in tact.
The Kenwood eXcelon CarPortal KOS-V1000 includes the same amplifier that's included in a Kenwood eXcelon in-dash receiver, so you'll enjoy superior sound quality compared to that of your factory radio. With three sets of 5-volt RCA preamp outputs you can also add aftermarket amplifiers to power additional speakers or subwoofers.
The KOS-V1000 is equipped with audio/video inputs for connecting a DVD player, game system, or camcorder. In addition to the inputs are A/V outputs so you can connect multiple video screens for your backseat passengers. You can also keep your factory CD player and AM/FM tuner by connecting the factory speaker outputs to the KOS-V1000 CarPortal.
Expansion has never been easier for your factory stereo. The KOS-V1000 has two auxiliary inputs, a USB connection, iPod® ready port, and satellite radio connections. If your factory system doesn't have Bluetooth, you can also add an optional Kenwood Bluetooth® adapter for safe hands-free calling. The list doesn't end there as the KOS-V1000 includes an input to connect a rear-view backup camera. Last but not least is the perhaps the coolest optional add-on to the Kenwood KOS-V1000 -- a Kenwood navigation system. You'll never have to worry about directions to your favorite places once you add the KNA-G510 in with the KOS-V1000.
With many vehicles, you can use your factory navigation screen to display the CarPortal's functions, while controlling operation with the included remote control. However, for those without a factory navigation screen, or for those who really want to customize their ride, we recommend that you purchase the optional KOS-L702 touchscreen monitor to control your new tricked out system as it has easy-to-use menus that allow you to access every aspect of the KOS-V1000.
