The Pros:Installation is easy enough for entry-level users to handle. Radio gets a good signal, can catch distant stations and they sound good. Plays back a wide range of file types through the USB port.
The Cons:GPS is a little slow to update the vehicle's position. Some inaccuracies with Points of Interest. Text to speech is robotic and often poorly pronounced.

But most notable about the NX509 is its media flexibility. Unlike the NX409, it not only handles DVD/CD videos & music, but it is 100% compatible with MP3s, WMAs, AACs, and even DivX. This isn’t even including its inputs/outputs, per which users can hookup an iPod for video playback (CCA723 cable required) and an external MP3 player for music playback (USB). Note also that this device delivers higher-quality audio precision; it’s equipped with a 3-band parametric equalizer AND digital compression technology.
