Summary: With clever applications of a wide range of features, the JVC KW-NX7000 is one of the few GPS navigation receivers that we've actually had fun testing.
Pros: Text-to-speech and very accurate GPS navigation make getting around with the JVC KW-NX7000 easy. The touch-screen interface is intuitive and responsive, with a proximity sensor that displays touch areas as your hand approaches the device. The SD card slot for digital audio is superfast and superconvenient.
Cons: Browsing music stored on an iPod is painfully slow. Bluetooth hands-free calling requires the purchase and installation of an additional module.

Excerpt: The JVC KW-NX7000 Navigation/DVD Receiver is a marvel for road warriors. JVC pushed the envelope on this product. The JVC KW-NX7000 is the X-Men version of JVC's El Kameleon. The brilliant 7-inch touch screen display has virtual navigation controls which light up when the screen sensor identifies a finger approaching. This feature is totally cool for driving because there is no need to look for buttons below or above the screen.
