JVC KD-NX5000 in-dash car GPS navigation has won a 2007/2008 EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) award for the European Navi-Media System category. In describing the KD-NX5000, EISA expressed surprise that all the included functionality could...

JVC KDNX5000 Review

 

As the GPS space grows, we should see more of these integrated media and navigation hugs for your car. TomTom certainly thinks so, as they backed the Eclipse AVN2210P, and we continue the quickening pace of integrated units coming from the major...

Had problems from beginning

 

I mostly disliked the product...At time of purchase it was the only one I could find that would fit my vehicle, and I wanted a navigation system. The sound issues could have been because downgraded from the factory JBL.

Allows you to operate navigation and play DVD's when driving. Navigation works well after initial calibration problems

The sound goes in and out (possibly install issue) XM had issues. Sometimes hear music and see "no signal" on display, but no sound. It takes forever upload to HDD. Hard to arrange folders. CD will resume at correct time. HDD starts it over

From a scale of 1-10 I would say this product is a 6.5.

 

They should have a software that upgrades this product.

This product is great for audio purposes

Had trouble with the bluetooth options, and my navigation doesn't work, it froze at one location and stopped working

Almost but fatal flaws

 

Fatal flaw with this device, when playing music from the hard drive YOU CANNOT PAUSE OR STOP. Seriously you cannot pause or stop when playing music that you ripped to it's internal hard drive, checked the manual and those buttons are not used when...

GPS HD Single DIN

Fatal flaw with this device, when playing music from the hard drive YOU CANNOT PAUSE OR STOP. Checked the manual and those buttons are not used when playing music from the HD. I contacted support and they confirmed it

Great features, Bad interface

 

I bought this unit three months ago and have been mostly satisfied with it. This unit is loaded with features and is maybe the most loaded unit in the market these days but there are some things that don't make it the best receiver yet.

Multi format media support, Real time traffic, Many module add ons, Good quality screen, great navigation, POI search is awesome

Bad interface, big & non-illuminated remote control, no touch screen, no audio progression in HDD playback, complicated menus, bad font, no updates/customizations

Consumer review by:

I have never regretted it yet.

 

This unit is fabulous. You will never worry about getting to your destination. Quick recalculations, soothing female voice. Or for the ladies, confidant guy's voice. Listen to music while being told how to get where you want to go. But if you need to...

Excellent product, Holds TONS of music, lots of features

weak on locating POI's, not good if you have to look at a detailed street by street map of a city. But it can do it

Consumer review by:

Do not purchase this or any other unit until you can find out how and how often the map are upgraded

 

While this is a good unit with a load of features it is first a Navigation device. I have been getting bounced back and forth between JVC and Navteq each instructing me to contact the other. JVC contends the map data comes from Navteq. Navteq contends...

Good system for the amount of money, to many features to name with Mp3, movies, bluetooth etc

No Map updates now or scheduled for the future
