Kenwood's DDX9902S and DDX9702S Android Auto units now shipping to retailers
Kenwood’s Android Auto-powered DDX9902S and DDX9702S aftermarket multimedia receivers, which were first announced at CES back in January, have now begun shipping out to retailers with the suggested retail price of $950 and $900, respectively. These units are the only aftermarket receivers currently available that ship with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay that automatically switch between the two systems depending on what type of phone is plugged in. This feature will prove quite handy for those families who don’t all have the same operating system on their smartphones.

Both units feature a large 6.95-inch display, an HDMI input with MHL support, as well as DVD playback. Currently, the more expensive DDX9902S model is showing up on Amazon for $749.99, which isn’t a bad price at all. The DDX9702S model is now available from Best Buy for only $699.99. Keep in mind that these retail prices don’t include installation fees, so unless you’re up for the challenge, you may have to pay a bit more to get the units installed for you. Also, these prices will likely change depending on where you purchase the receivers, so be sure to do some research before you buy.
