Customer Question
I have a Kenwood...

I have a Kenwood DNX691HD NAV/Radio in an older SUV...never had a map upgrade. I've learned on internet that to start the process a insert an SD card in the small slot on front of the nav unit. I've ordered an 8GB Micro SD card from amazon. While waiting for snail mail delivery, I've begun to wonder if I have to buy a special card from Kenwood for this to work?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is your DNX691HD unit?

6 years old

Mechanic's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your DNX691HD?

Well it works fine, just has old maps. So far I've researched on internet, found a web site to down load new map file. 1st step in down load process from web site is insert your SD card so radio can prep the card. Then insert card with its adapter into my computer to receive download. I've ordered a new SD Card from Amazon. Now just wondering if the card has to come from Kenwood or Garmin?
