Most everything about it is okay if you're not considering travelling too far afield. Ipod and phone integration is fine, sounds great, easy to use

It's just not for people that are considering travelling very far or out of the country. What's the point of having an EU radio band, if you can't know where you're headed when you're in the EU

hands free calling is fatally flawed


I won't dwell on the basic A/V and Nav performance. Other reviews have gone into enough detail there. Plenty of power/flexibility, good connections and intuitive controls. Suffice it to say that it is as I expected and I am happy with the KW-NT in that...

Good A/V and Nav performance, fast route calc, detachable face

Hands-free calling capability is useless due to illogical firmware; Nav POI database a little skimpy
