If you changed to Maestro, you'd get a gauges screen where you can choose 5 gauges from a list, a screen where you can see your tire pressure and battery voltage and even get active check engine codes and attempt to reset them.

Of course steering wheel controls still work, but you can configure them on the website to do anything you want and even assign one radio function when you short press the button and a different function when you long press the button.

Cheers,

That's what my Diablosport Trinity for.

Yeah, that's a lot more than what Kenwood/Maestro is trying to do. Not everyone can spend $599 for a tuner/gauge display, or even wants to tune the car.

My point was that you already have a radio that has this built in and the PAC solution is roughly same cost as Maestro, so you could have had the bells and whistles for free. Does that device show you the pressure in each tire and alert you with a screen when a tire is flat and show you which one?

Anyhow, to each his own. Not trying to sell anyone, just explain what the product does.

Cheers,

12V Guy

No function on the tire, but that's what the central computer on the dash is for.

Visit the website: iDatalink - Maestro - SR-CHR01-DS

Requires you to use a 2013 Kenwood DNX/DNN radio, although some Kenwood multimedia units for 2014 are also compatible (DDX8901HD, DDX7701HD, and DDX5901HD) as are the 2014 Alpine 7, 8 and 9 inch navigation units.

Pioneer NEX series is also compatible, but they do not offer the gauges, vehicle info or parking assist screens. Full integration with the OEM systems (uConnect, digital amps, and steering wheel controls) is supported.

From what I can tell on the iDataLink web page, the Uconnect version is only listed as supporting the 2014 Patriot and Compass. In other words, it doesn't support any of the newer Uconnect systems yet. At least, that's my understanding.

2014 vehicles are being added to the website now.

Coverage will include:
Compass
Patriot
Wrangler

You are correct that we do not cover the new platforms with the 4.2 or 8 inch screens. We are working on that platform now.

Cheers,

12V Guy

Wish the 890 had a digi output.
