I bought a next to new vehicle that had the NX500 installed. From day one the phonebook refused to work properly with my iPhone and came up with syncing error regularly. The navigation is so cumbersome and frustrating to use compared to say Garmin, it's practically useless if you need to input directions in a timely manner. Ever so often the volume control will go to full blast all on it's own. The company that installed it has been great trying to get updates to work but Clarion Canada has never returned my calls to discuss what can be done. I have never had such a useless electronic device ever. It is an extremely expensive car radio and I would never recommend this brand to anyone as it seems Clarion doesn't care.

A few years ago clarion was one of the best decks you could own. They are not near the same quality. I thought with the clarion name and the good price that included the good features with the navigation being the selling point I had gotten a great deal. The audio quality was very disappointing, the deck I had in for half the price sounded better. that come that came with it reading reading them but but a very plain and dull in person. The navigation unit worked great, until a few months after I bought i start a c start t and th and the screen i is blank all all that shows up is Clarion then nothing else. CD player works but you can't change any tracks radio would work too if it was on the channel that got reception but didn't as I was traveling at the time. th the processor when when ou went out and the unit was no able to be repaired. Replaced it with a pioneer 4400 the features my system now only sounds better what i my system now only sounds better what is louder d an and I highly recommend to anyone. The Pioneer 1400 and are the reason I went with th the reason I went with the 4400 is because I if you're looking to upgrade more than just the head unit and add amps and speakers then you must get the 4 volt pr amp hook ups. If you just want the best unit available for under 700 get the 4400. Best under 400 get the 3400 and if you want to save some more and not have one or two features get the 1400. I did A Lot of research on this after the clarion broke as you can tell by the novel. Outside of the pioneer units the second best models on the market are the Kenwood DDX models. Hope this helps. A lot of time went into that information

July 19, 2011 NOT worth it!

I have owned this unit for a little over 1 year. During this past year it has jumped songs on iPod mode, switched radio stations on its own and recently the screen froze so I couldn't use it for anything more than just the radio. Now it has been sent away for warranty and will not be back for approx 4-8 weeks I am told. What takes 4-8 weeks? I would like to get rid of this one and buy a Kenwood, heard they are more costly but WELL worth it!
