Summary: I really like this unit overall. The Bluetooth integration, bright display, audio quality and user interface are all top-notch. This unit gets a 1 star from me for shipping with old maps (at least 2-3 years old when I got mine), and what's worse, no available updates. JVC tells me to check with Navteq, Navteq tells me to check with JVC. I'm pretty sure they are *never* going to release an update. What earthly good is a GPS without current maps?
Summary: Having previously owned a KNX-7000 I was really excited to get hold of the new JVC Navi. JVC tends to offer a lot of features for the dollar. Unfortunately, once up and running, I discovered a software deficiency that I deem as so fundamental that it took the KW from a 5 star to a 1 star rating. Stated simply, the JVC does not allow you to view your routes as text. Just about any GPS on the planet will allow you to view a listing of the proposed route.
