Does anyone have the Ken KDC-X998?

How visible is the screen when riding in daylight?

The final piece of hardware to purchase before my install is the HU and I'm having a tough time between the Ken KDC-X998 and Alpine 149BT. Features wise the Kenwood looks as good if not better than the Alpine but everyone says you can see the Alpine in the sun with no issues.

I have one for my truck and love it, but not sure how it would hold up to getting wet

I have one on my RG and I can see the screen in daylight while riding except when direct sunlight hits it. Otherwise very visible. Sun shining directly on it causes a glare which is understood. Love the deck tho.

I just put in the KDC-X997 a couple of months ago and it is fantastic. The color matches the other gauges perfectly both at day and night and can be easily read. Not sure about the KDC-X998 though

I have on my RGU. Color match is spot on. Bluetooth connects to the phone fast. Not problems so far.
