Summary: Owned over 2 years now, happy but no more. GPS - out of date, very slow respond, old style graphic, lost signal time to time, accuacy is incorrect. RADIO - good signal, just like all the other ones. CD/MP3 - Random sorted (annoying), easier if alphabetically sorted songs and albums, but not in this one. iPod - Just like you pay on iPod, the best thing in this unit. DO NOT Update with NX509 firmware, it will destroy this whole thing and your Warranty wont cover it.
Summary: I spent 1,000 dollars with all the options. Biggist problem a no brand $100 gps works this gps dose not find anything or take you any where. I now have a Garmin GPS over it so my wife can get to where she needs to go. Everyone says Clarion service is bad. I say what service?
Summary: Well, here I go. After 4 months owning the unit ( prof installed ) the screen went blank. Nothing worked. Sent back to Clarion ( my expense having unit removed and shipped to the other coast) and several weeks later received my "repaired" unit back. Clarion claimed corrupt files and a software issue. Ok, fine. Unit worked flawlessly for several more months ( Minus the worthless GPS; if im traveling from Maryland to California I dont want to stop in Orlando along the way.
Summary: I purchased this item becuase it probably had one of the best prices for a navigation/in dash screen in the different screen categories. I got it pretty quick, and it was esy to install. The only thing I would say it lacks, is that when you have the navigation on you can change the track from that screen, you have to exit the navigation screen and go back to the home menu and choose the disk option and go that route. Other than that good product.
Summary: My NX409 worked for 3 months of light use. The biggest problem was the hard to read display. It doesn't have enough contrast. Trying to decipher the image from the back up camera was impossible most of the time. In the day time it was washed out and at night it was a blob of blackness. My other vehicles with backup cameras display more.
Summary: as for one review there is a option on the gps menu to avoid freeways,which will cure this problem.there is also a setting on the time for pacific,mountain,central and etc... to set to correct the time.the dvd player plays video dvd+r's in quicktime movie mpg format It works great in everyway,but i havent got it to play mp4's through the usb port,i'm not sure if thats possible?
Summary: I am another who got it through crutchfield for $350(thanks slickdeals!) - GPS works as it should...Seems very accurate to me, so IDK about the other review that says otherwise. - As someone else already mentioned, the radio presets wipe-out from time to time. I don't listen to radio so it's no big deal for me. - I use my IPOD video 30gig primarily and it works every time without flaws. - DVD works fine, no issues.
Summary: I have been using this product over the last 2 months. I use the backup camera and dvd player. The ipod interface is very quick and responsive. However, the navigation is a nightmare. You can not rely on it to get you from point A to point B without adding minutes or hours to your drive. I live next to a major freeway that for some reason clarion does not want me to drive on.
