Cons

Map is very out of date and JVC is not offering any updates for this product. Makes the GPS function useless over time.

3 agree

10-20 second delay on startup, annoying if you're in a big hurry and need directions

 JVC's KW-NT30HD is a high-end automobile navigation system that also includes a built-in HD radio tuner. The radio is a main feature, as is connectivity with iPod or iPhone products in order to play music and video, as well as see detailed album art or song information. The map base is powered by Google Maps, and the unit uses Windows Automotive OS, and there is also Bluetooth connectivity allowing hands-free phone use through the car's main speakers. The radio feature can tag songs for downloading in iTunes. There are many navigation features, including text-to-speech and voice guidance in English, French and Spanish, points of interest, visited destinations, speed limit and speed alert displays. The display itself is a relatively large touchscreen (6.1"), and features a removable faceplate to discourage theft. This model's counterpart is the KW-NT50HD, whose main difference is a lifetime subscription to a traffic service that functions even outside HD reception areas.
