The Clarion NZ409 is a 2-DIN, DVD Multimedia Station with a fully-motorized 7” touch-panel control and built-in GPS navigation system. Like its peers, it handles CDs & DVDs with a variety of content: AAC, MP3, WMA. 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.
