JVC KW-NT3HDT

 

Design and installation The KW's face is occupied primarily by a 6.1-inch resistive touch screen. The display resolution is unpublished, but we're estimating that the screen operates at around 480x234 pixels. The resistive nature of the touch display...

The JVC KW-NT3HDT's inclusion of an HD Radio receiver affords it the advantages of digital FM tuning, including increased audio quality, HD substations, and iTunes tagging. The unit features a wide variety of audio sources, such as USB, SD card,...

The KW-NT3HDT's display is a bit low resolution for our tastes. The POI search interface can be clunky and unintuitive. The USB port cover seems unnecessary and can be difficult to remove.

It makes nice phone calls, and the sound quality is... okay. Usually.

The GPS is ridiculously outdated. There are major highways that were extended in the late 90's that don't show up on the maps. Research shows that new maps purchases only update POI's and not the map database.

"Awesome Unit!"

 

If your looking for a GPS unit that boots up quickly, offers great driving directions while including superb traffic conditions. If your looking for supper hi-res screen than this is not for your, however if you want fast and accurate then this is the...

FAST, FAST and FAST

jls098 says that you can make changes on the fly; I'm thinking he or she does not have the unit configured to accept alternate routes as the unit clearly offers them if configured to do so.
