are you refering to the kenwood unit itself or the install kit?

The install kit is just a scosche or metra, your choice....

They have the unit for the Mustang, though it appears the Camaro one will be somewhat different as far as what it displays.....

I know it will be a huge surprise, but if you hit the Search above and type in 2013 Kenwood, it comes up with multiple thread links to the new kenwood and kit...thread number 4 & 5 to be precise.....

No the install kit will not be Scosche or Metra. It will be nothing more than any easy fit kit from Kenwood. Automotive Data Solutions is partnering with Kenwood in order to have a unit that will have all controls in the head unit a video is linked below. The only negative thing is this will not be out for a while. The head units can be purchased now and most will be available in March. The mustang is getting the unit first then the onstar based systems are next. Going to have to hold your breath with the rest of us

I would much rather have this than the Scosche or Alpine dash kit. I can't wait to buy and get it installed! The dude said in 2013, wonder if that is early 2013 or the end of 2013?

Is it possible a Kenwood kit would be made by Scoshe or Metra? The Alpine kit is made by Scoshe.

The current kits are Scosche or Metra alpine is made by Scosche. The only option out today is to use on of those kits for a headunit replacement.
The Kenwood kit will not be out for a while maybe as long as a year from what a Kenwood Employee told me. Double D has the same info. Look at the threads. In fact I learned most of this from them. Call and discuss it with them he was one of the first to see what Kenwood was wanting to do. I would post the thread it is in but I figure someone else can do the search.

I also was told by my Alpine rep that the dash kit is being discontinued from Alpine too. Trying to get more info on this.

Got some info about the Kenwood install kits,should be coming out maybe 3rd or 4th quarter according to the guy's on the Kenwood forum.

According to them everything will work from the touch screen on there units

I will be buying one for sure

Kenwood has an exclusive partnership with ADS for some very cool OEM integration setups. With 2013 products and the new ADS firmware we are able to control heat and AC functions right from the kenwood touchscreens. 2010 Mustang will be the first released the softare is finished from my understanding and they are working on the plastic dash kits now. The camaro should be down the road 3rd/4th quarter.

Does anyone know what this unit costs? Ball park?
I really would love to get a touchscreen but I don't wnat to lose any functionality or features or have to change any antennas.
This unit looks like it may be the answer.

Agreed. I will wait for this kit and to have the kinks worked out. But this looks like it's the way to go.

The integrated HVAC controls in the head unit is a GREAT advancement. I've been longing for it for a LONG time. And since the dash kit only needs to be a plastic mould with no HVAC swtiches/controls/knobs, I HOPE they spend a lot of time on the aesthetics of it. It really needs to look nice.

Two other wishes of mine:

1. Wouldn't it be great if the head units had an option to plug in a temperature sensor so that the climate control could be AUTOMATIC ? !!!

2. Wouldn't it be great if there was an HVAC APP for iPads/tablets so that you could use a tablet as your ONLY "head unit" in the car? !!!

Looking at the Mustang kit they've been showing off, the screen has a display of the outside temperature. Also the Metra kit currently shows outside temperature, so the kit should definitely know what the temperature is! It's definitely possible they'd do that, and if not it could be released as a software update later on.
The top Kenwood systems have wifi built in and are pretty integrated with smartphones (they actually run a version of android for the system) so they kind of are smaller tablets already, which is pretty cool!
