OBD-II Speed Pulse Generator: The Kenwood OBD-II Speed Pulse Generator (KNA-SPM100) is designed specifically for installing Kenwood receivers with Wireless Apple CarPlay in 2008-up vehicles, since Wireless Apple CarPlay now requires a vehicle speed pulse connection. The KNA-SPM100 converts digital speed data of your vehicle to pulse waveform for communication with a compatible Kenwood receiver. Once installed, the KNA-SPM100 helps to provide a more accurate GPS location when using Wireless CarPlay navigation apps; such as Apple Maps, Google Maps, or Waze.
- Wireless Apple CarPlay will not work without a vehicle speed pulse connection.
- If you are using a radio replacement interface with a vehicle speed pulse wire, you will not need the KNA-SPM100. Instead of using the KNA-SPM100, you'll hardwire the Kenwood receiver's speed pulse wire to the speed pulse wire of the radio replacement interface module.
- Alternatively, you can also hardwire the Kenwood receiver's speed pulse wire to your vehicle's speed pulse wire (this method is much more time consuming and requires more installation experience).
Compatibility: The OBD-II Speed Pulse Generator (KNA-SPM100) is compatible with select 2008-up vehicles and Kenwood receivers that offer Wireless CarPlay. Compatible Kenwood receivers include the DNX996XR, DNR876S, DDX9906XR, DDX8906S, DDX8706S, DMX906S, and DMX9706S. It is pre-programmed to automatically work with the compatible Kenwood receiver and vehicle once its installed properly.
- Not all vehicles 2008 to present will support the Kenwood OBD-II Speed Pulse Generator (KNA-SPM100)
- If a diagnostic tool is already being used on the vehicle's OBD-II port, the KNA-SPM100 cannot be added in parallel.
Simple Installation: The KNA-SPM100 features an OBD-II connector harness and simple 3-wire installation.
- OBD-II Connector: Plugs into your vehicle's OBD-II port.
