Our customer recently picked up this AP1 Honda S2000 which had an older aftermarket single din installed. The old deck did not have bluetooth capability or USB support for charging or media. With the new laws cracking down on distracted driving, it's more important than ever to outfit a vehicle with bluetooth handsfree calling and a receiver upgrade is one of the best ways to do it!
This new Kenwood KMM-BT322U receiver supports bluetooth, Spotify, along with front USB and auxiliary inputs. One unique feature on this particular unit is the variable colour illumination which lets you change the lighting colour on the screen and buttons. Our entry level single din systems like the JVC KD-X255BT only have blue illumination which can stand out at night. With this S2000, we were able to set the lighting to a red/orange colour that matched the original lighting nicely.
We also paired this S2000 with the iDatalink Maestro SW which lets the driver use the factory audio controls. For this car, we programmed the buttons to adjust the volume, change sources, answer/end calls, and skip tracks. The S2000 is unique in that it has a flap to cover the radio and with that flap down, our customer's knee was actually hitting the corner of the flap. With the Maestro SW, he can leave the flap closed and still control most of the functions from the buttons located to the left of the steering wheel.
