Greetings,

As of now, the only company working on interfacing an aftermarket radio with uconnect is Automotive Data Solutions, Idatalink mastero. The last update I have is late summer or fall for the uconnect version, Ford is the first up. The 2012 Kenwood radios DNX series will be the first ones. After that, I not sure who is getting it next. Their is a special connector in the HU for the mastero to plug into.

Here is a link to a youtube video demonstrating the system.



The new Kenwood DNX head units are faster, however, IMO the navi has taken a step back compared to the Alpine and Clarion head units.

Best for now.

SinRG you might want to post this as a new Thread in the WK section not the WK2 section.
