Kenwood Stereo install (Pics)

Just got a Kenwood DNX Stereo with Audiovox overhead monitor and back-up camera installed yesterday. Looks and sounds great. I was told I'm one the first to get this kit installed. Sorry about the quality it was iphone pics. What does everyone think?

The kit was around $250 from Metra and the Kenwood system was $1500, the back-up camera was $100, and the audiovox overhead unit was $400. The work was done by Car Toys

The installer used the original USB port and added an ipod cable in the same location

Looks great, congrats. Does it have navigation built in as well or do they make a system with a similar system with a nav?

Stereo is a Kenwood DNX 9140 The kit can be purchased either at metra electronics or Feslerbuilt.
Here's a link to Fesler:

I'm not brave to DIY when it comes to electronics, I had car toys do the install

Looks really good. I was worried to see the metra kit installed since you lose all the stock knobs but overall for the amount the metra kit cost, not bad at all. Great Choice!

Guess you lose programming ability for the computer.

Looks nice though. Think I'll stay with the BA system.

I was contemplating replacing the head unit, but after I got the car, I noticed all the programming is through the radio. How is that done now? And how well do the heater controls on the Metra kit work?
