The KDC-BT645U is a mid-range, single-DIN car audio receiver from Kenwood. The receiver is one of Kenwood's less expensive models to feature built-in Bluetooth, enabling hands-free calling and other features with a linked, Bluetooth-capable mobile phone. Like most of Kenwood's lineup, the KDC-BT645U supports USB Direct Connect for iPod and iPhone, which aims to ensure easy operation of a connected MP3 player from the receiver's interface. The receiver also plays CDs and AM/FM radio, but separately purchased accessories are required for HD or satellite radio support. Higher-end units usually feature more advanced displays – the KDC-BT645U can show only 13 characters at once – and more sound equalizer options.
