So, that's what the display is supposed to look like! I haven't seen mine in many, many years. Somehow I missed the "memo" when Kenwood was replacing the faulty displays, so now mine is almost totally blank.
You have a very nice installation there. It's clean and functional.
Very nice setup!. I have a V7 purchased several moons ago along with the "official" Kenwood remote kit. Glad to see you are using one. My radio still works like a champ surviving heat and cold days in the car . It's a great radio and the way you have mounted the control head, clean and simple with that little thingy holder you are using.
