The Kenwood DNX7160 is an all-in-one navigation and audio/visual car entertainment unit. It is an upgrade to the Kenwood DNX6160, with a bigger 6.95 inch display that uses a reverse tilt system to adjust for sun glare, and automatically adjusts the brightness based on the detected light hitting the screen. Firmware updates for the unit are now available and can be done through the USB port. Some new features have been added to the navigation unit as well, including instructions on which lane to get into for upcoming exits and confusing junctions. Full Bluetooth integration is still being used for external device integration and hands-free cellphone use, but now with the addition of A2DP and AVRCP control profiles to increase the number of devices that are compatible. Full iPhone and iPod control is still available, and a wide variety of audio and video formats are compatible with the system. Support for memory card media has been switched to the SD card standard, and inputs are available through USB, A/V ports, and Rear Camera inputs. Audio is output at 50 watts to 4 channels, 3 preouts are available for external amplifiers, and the unit is HD and Satellite radio ready.
