    Not natively (that is, running on the Kenwood unit).

    You could use the A/V input on the Kenwood unit and connect it to an iPod Touch or iPhone or Android. Running OBDII software such as Palmer's DashCommand, you can display it on the Kenwood.

    You will need a WiFi OBDII dongle to connect to the OBDII port. If you do not own either the WiFi dongle or the iPod touch, it will run you around $400 USD to do this.

    You could alternatively use a netbook/laptop with A/V output to do the same thing.
