Maestro compatible Kenwood units?

Hi,

Wondering if the actual head units from Kenwood that are compatible with Maestro RR/RR2 have specific iDatalink Maestro software installed from factory or if they are just like any other head unit that is non-compatible?

Thanks!

They have maestro specific coding included in the radio firmware, so they are a bit different than non-compatible radios.

Thanks Dara! I wish there was an option to use the European version head unit DMX9720XDS of the US version DMX1037S together with the RR2. Extremely frustrating…

Just one of those situations where things made in other markets aren't currently supported. Hard to say what tomorrow holds, but at this time, there's not a plan to expand into that market/with that radio. We understand the frustration, but at the same time don't want to put out a solution that isn't going to function to our standards either.

Thanks!
