Harman Kardon Guide + Play GPS 810

 

When you hear the name Harman Kardon, you probably think of consumer audio and video products, not GPS navigation devices. That's because Harman's brands include names well known to audiophiles such as JBL, Infinity, and Mark Levinson. But the Harman...

Large, 4.3-inch screen. Multisegment routing. Traffic receiver integrated into the case. Useful wireless control knob.

Pricey. Takes too many screen taps to find nearby POIs. Bluetooth interface imports contact numbers, not names from cell phones. No instruction manual. Problematic FM transmitter.

Unique wireless control knob doesn't justify the Harman Kardon Guide + Play GPS 810's premium price. Competitive models offer similar features, without the knob, for significantly less.

HK GPS810 - Beyond the first few months

 

I purchased the Harman Kardon 810 back in January knowing that HK is the provider of many on board navigation systems in high end cars. This unit was also recommended by a friend who has tried them all and claimed that this unit was the only GPS that...

Excellent support located in NY, NOT outsourced over seas! Problem resolution is quick

Wireless FM transmitter is useless due to FCC power restrictions

Harman Kardon GPS810

 

I purchased this product on impulse at Costco for $300 knowing they have an outstanding returns policy.

Price/functionality - Display - Separate control knob

Location of standby/off switch - Battery life is OK but not great
