The Kenwood eXcelon DNX8120 is an in-dash all-in-one entertainment system, hands free driving aid, and navigation system.  The 6.95" color touch screen includes a customizable user interface as well as a customizable start up, a feature not many in dash entertainment systems include.  The Kenwood eXcelon DNX8120 interfaces with iPods, but it does not do so perfectly.  Earlier iPods are not compatible with the system and the iPod touch cannot play its video through the system.  The navigational system is a built in Garmin system that covers the US, Canada, PR, Alaska and Hawaii with NAVTEQ mapping.  It includes a remote control to allow backseat passengers to control the system, giving the driver the option to have distraction free driving.
