Kenwood’s in-dash receiver requires a wired connection to take advantage of CarPlay functionality. So be sure to complete your new on-the-road setup and grab a highly-rated Anker MFi Lightning Cable with a portion of your savings. Or if you’re looking to fully upgrade your ride, think about grabbing iOttie’s Easy One Touch 4 mount. With your smartphone also in view, one screen can show navigation directions while the other displays music or podcast controls.
For something a little more affordable, we’re also still seeing a $100 discount on JVC’s 6.8-inch CarPlay Receiver. It’s currently marked down to $280, and notably brings Android Auto support into the mix as well.
