I really like having this in my car. The safety feature requiring the parking brake to be engaged for playing movies is stupid but you can bypass that pretty easily so you can watch movies while the car is moving. Sometimes while using the navigation...

The GPS is easy to use and controls are pretty intuitive. I love that it has an ipod hook up and can play movies. It's also very sleek looking. I love how the screen folds down to accept CDs or DVDs. POI info is very cool too

The maps are hard to update and it took several phone calls to figure out how to do it. At first they told me it cost $300 to update maps

I was debating between the avic-d3, the avic-z2, and this strada. The strada was the only one I was not able to find in stores therefore I had to order it online. The main reason why I didn't go with the avic-d3 or avic-z2 was because they did not have...

Map coverage, Speed of searching for address, great equalizer

Didn't come with ipod cable. No Divx support (that I see)

If you look at this unit, both the case and screenshots, it's very apparent that it's a copy of the Eclipse 5510 and 6610. However, it's a poor copy.

Cost, HDD, Number of POI

No remote available, No Sirius Traffic tuner available, poor Bluetooth functionality

Product Specifications

Until now, the problem with many in-car GPS navigation systems has been confusing user interfaces, poor display screens, restricted map coverage, and slow performance. To address the growing need of drivers to have a strong and reliable navigation tool, Panasonic developed the Strada, HDD mobile navigation system, a user-friendly, high-capacity car navigation system which can easily instruct average, non-technical drivers where they are, where they've been, and how to get to their next destination. While serving as a driver's electronic navigator between points A, B and C, or any other combination, the Strada CN-NVD905U system can deliver radio broadcasts, real-time traffic information, and CD audio and DVD movie and can even play music and videos from an iPod allowing your car to be another source for on demand entertainment. Moving beyond navigation and entertainment, Panasonic's new navigation system also boasts several safety and convenience features, such as hands-free Bluetooth connectivity, an optional back-up camera to help avoid fender benders and the ability to program specific geographic areas that the driver wants to avoid. Complete with high-speed data to provide the driver with possible restaurant choices, gas stations and hotel accommodations along their trip, the Strada system, named after the Italian word for street, is truly the perfect driving companion.
