The Clarion NX501 is a high end automobile GPS unit. Features of this unit geared toward navigation include TeleAtlas Mapping Coverage of all fifty United States, as well as Canada and Puerto Rico. Though the 6.2 inch touch panel will show you the map and directions you need, this GPS unit's text to speech function will say them out loud so that you can keep your eyes on the road. Besides this unit's GPS functionality, it is also capable of a variety of playbacks, including CD, MP3, WMA file and DVD. When you want to take in different media from your passengers, the 2-zone entertainment system allows you to. These features are all shared with the identically priced NZ501 unit, which differs from the NX501 only in that it has a seven inch digital touch panel, as well as a different external design.
