Released May, 2009
The Pros:Sirius radio connects consistently upon bootup. DVD display is sharp and clear, easy to view in most lighting. Audio output is clear and strong, capable of lots of power without the need for additional amps.
The Cons:GPS operates slowly, vehicle position is often lagging behind. Many of the points of interest are inaccurate. Presets for Sirius Radio often delete themselves.

Plus, it can handle iPod videos via USB (CCA723 cable required), as well as music streaming directly from a portable MP3 player. As mentioned though, the most pertinent feature of the unit is its integrated GPS, which hosts: 2GB memory, 12 million POIs, and text-to-speech street announcements. Additional highly-notable aspects of the Clarion NX409 include Satellite Radio readiness, Bluetooth compatibility (BLT370 transceiver required), and a 24-bit D/A converter engineered for “superb sound reproduction.”
