CES 2020 has whizzed on by for this year and as we dust off the deluge of new product announcements and crazy lifestyle devices, we uncover the CarPlay announcements that were revealed at the show.

Kenwood and its sub-brand JVC announced a few new CarPlay enabled receivers at this year’s CES 2020. We’ve already seen the large screen announcements from Alpine’s HALO 11-inch display and Pioneer’s new floating 10.1-inch and 9-inch floating receivers, yet Kenwood/JVC has joined the party with their new eXcelon models.

The Kenwood DNR1007XR and DMX1057XR are both mech-less receivers packing a 10.1-inch 720p floating HD display. Both screens are near identical except the DNR1007XR carries built-in Garmin navigation. Both feature wireless Apple CarPlay and the new LDAC Hi-Res Audio capability, 4 camera inputs, HDMI inputs and iDatalink Maestro ready.

Both models will release this coming Summer, however, there wasn’t any region confirmation or pricing to be announced at the time. Kenwood also announced eight additional Apple CarPlay enabled receivers the DNX997XR ($1,499.95), DDX9907XR ($1099.95), DNX697S ($1099.95), DMX957XR ($999.95), DNX577S ($999.95), DDX9707S ($899.95), DMX907S ($849.95) and DMX9707S ($799.95).

The JVC version of the previously mentioned model will be the KW-Z1000W. It will feature gesture touch controls along with many of the features as the DMX1057XR non-navigation model and it will likely be slightly cheaper than the premium Kenwood brand.
