Jensen NVX225

 

Jensen is no stranger to aftermarket car tech , but we've mostly looked at its in-car stereo units rather than the company's portable navigation systems , so we were pretty anxious to take the Jensen NVX225 out for a test drive when it arrived at our...

The Jensen NVX225 in-car GPS device is affordably priced and offers text- and voice-guided directions and other basic navigation tools.

The NVX225's interface and overall user experience isn't as smooth as competing products, and it lacks text-to-speech functionality. The points-of-interest database is also out of date.

As an entry-level GPS device, the Jensen NVX225 offers all the basics at an affordable price tag, but you can get a better user experience and more from the Mio C230 or Garmin Nuvi 200.

Fast recalculates of missed turns. holds a lock well and is accurate ; Has track logging that most Garmin automotive gps' lack ; Robust interface and display ; export GPX tracks for sharing

Maps are dated, but still usable ; Speaker volume could be higher for when window is down, or used in a truck ; Overhead view with dozens of pins on the map is looses some of its robustness ; Lacks a trip computer, one item it should have had

"Maps out of date, customer service gets a ZERO"

 

I was given this as a gift for christmas and was very excited. It did well but I began to find alot of areas that the maps didn't exist or were inaccurate. Then I found that it's not possible to even update the maps. Lastly, my battery started only...

Snappy interface, small and convenient.

Maps out of date, poor battery life, no support

Product Specifications

The NVX225 Navigator is a navigation system that helps you find your way to your selected destination. It will determine your exact location with the help of an attached GPS device. The position information obtained from the GPS receiver will not be transmitted anywhere, so others will not be able to track you. If you are the driver of the vehicle, it is recommend that you operate the NVX225 Navigator before beginning your journey. The driver's attention should be on the road. Plan your route before departure and pull over if you need to change route parameters. The NVX225 Navigator has a built-in (optional) Safety Mode that will prevent you from using the screen functions if your car is in motion.
