Dual XDVDN8290


$550.00 Released September, 2004

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Integrated microphone sounds great on the other end of the line. Feature-packed for the price--many features, such as navigation, often require an additional component with competing head units. The unit looks great installed in-dash.

The Cons:IPod navigation is somewhat limited--doesn't sort songs by album, instead grouping all songs by artist only. No support for SDHC. Touchscreen might not register your finger from time to time.

The XDVDN8290 is a higher-end in-dash navigation system from car electronics manufacturer Dual. With a motorized 6.5-inch LCD display, it utilizes 2D/3D maps preloaded on an SD card and a touch-screen interface to provide turn-by-turn, voice directions.

Maps are viewable in 3D and split-screen. The XDVDN8290 is also a 300W A/V receiver, playing CDs and DVDs, as well as music stored on an iPod via iPlug. Most iPod commands become accessible through the touch screen. An AM/FM tuner is also included, with 48 presets. Built-in Bluetooth enables communication with Bluetooth-enabled phones, as calls can be answered and placed through the touch screen, or hands-free with a built-in microphone. Although the XDVDN8290 is a step up from the 8190 in peak power, it has a slightly smaller screen, and is otherwise nearly identical.
