JVC KV-PX9B Portable Navigation Units - Car Audio and Electronics Magazine

 

Is a portable just a portable? There are so many choices now that consumers may be wondering how much to research this segment...

Consumer review by:

this product is outdated...the map needs updating

 

not darn thing...the bigest mistake I've ever made is throwing my money away on this product

I don't like that this product is still being sold. It's outdated, most places I want to go to are not on the map, and it's imposible to get a map update. It's cheaper to by a new gps...I'm buying a LG or tomtom

Not a very Reliable GPS

 

For the price this GPS is fine. After a lot of usage i found that there are two issues. The first is a very big issue which will leave you very frustrated. It does not announce the direction when you have to take an exit. Example if you have to take 95...

Not very good gps.

 

I did not like this gps. As a gps it is very poor. Only 8 sats at a time, and not a very sensitive receiver. You only need 3 sats to navigate, but if the device can not see them, then you are lost! Even under some trees it lost the gps signal. Then it...

good screen, good sound, easy to use, very good build quality, user replacable battery, sd mem slot, can play videos, music, and photos, has hard drive

Does not display names of the streets on the streets. Only the street you are on at the top of the screen. Hard to see the screen during the day. (non-reflective coating is still very reflective), no
