Product Shot 1 The Pros:Clear, undistorted signal to the speakers. Solid iPod interface that works consistently with a wide variety of models. Able to play sound from a DVD while driving.

The Cons:Unable to easily search through titles on the iPod. Navigation doesn't handle wrong turns gracefully. Maps lack detail, especially in rural areas.

Included also is a USB port, allowing users to hookup an iPod; mind you, a CCA723 cable is required for video transmission. The centerpiece to this unit, however, is its built-in GPS. It not only covers both the US and Canada, but is outfitted with numerous features: 12 million POIs, text-to-speech announcements, and 2D/3D map screens. Another notable aspect of the Clarion NZ409 include its source flexibility, as it is both Bluetooth AND Sirius Satellite Radio ready. Consider also its 12-digit secondary display—placed on the outside for use when the whole device is closed.

Additional Information

For a more affordable, albeit less featured model, review the NX409.
