The touch screen face is great, there are so many features to this Nav radio. You can set the viewing angle. Once you have setup your phone, as soon as you get in the car it automatically links itself to the Bluetooth. The Navigation is spot on, Tells you when a speed limit zone has decreased or increased. Tells you way before your next turn is due. I also have an external mic connected for phone, and talking to the nav, you can voice tell it to find someplace. The Sirius adapter I got, works flawlessly. only Con I can think of is don't leave the Ipod USB cable plugged in, it will drain your battery. I also have a rear vision camera connected, great for backing up in tight spots. you can change the operator buttons to match your vehicles standard dash panel light colors, or just from a wide selection of colors. This radio was more than I expected it to be, and far less in price than others that I researched.

August 14, 2013 A working unit is a great piece.

First head unit arrived and wouldn't recognize map license files for NAV. Ended up pulling and returning for another of same model. With a working unit and 6 months or so of use, I have to say I am overall pleased with the NX702.

NAV: Pros-Great image quality, and TBT directions are easy to follow. POI database seems very comprehensive. Cons-So many options, it takes time to get it set up to your liking.

BT: Primary device phone and media connections are stable. Both have great SQ. Internal mic has presented no problems. Cons- If you stream from another device, or media player on primary device the HU may not present proper music metadata on display.

HDRadio:Pros- Many user features for finding your favorite stations. Cons-Basic functions may not be obviously apparent. Takes a little time to learn.

CD/DVD: Pros-Great picture and sound. Lots of user options. Cons- None so far

BU Camera- Pro-Switches quickly to on screen when wired to reverse circuit of vehicle. Con-THIS IS A HUGE SAFETY CONCERN, When vehicle is put in reverse, volume controls do not respond to inputs. If the unit has just booted up, and audio playback hasn't begun, it will play at last volume level selected. Basically, you can get blasted from the stereo audio, and can't turn it down until you are out of reverse gear. Very distracting/aggravating when trying to back up.

Pandora- I BT stream through my Android phone. I believe to take advantage of this feature you must use an iPhone with hard cable connection.

IPhone/Pod- I'm an Android user

Sirius/XM- Still have a Starmate 4(external receiver) that I used with factory HU. Using ANT switch/FM Modulator for input.

SD Card: I've tried to load picture files for wallpapers. They show as options, but don't display as wallpaper. Haven't tried to read music files from card.

Flash Drive: Played MP3 files just fine.

General SQ: It's a Clarion. You have lots of different user controls to fine tune the sound in your vehicle.

Display Quality: Nice and bright during the day. Great resolution. Screen doesn't show smudges very easily.

Ease of Installation. It's a full featured DD head unit. There are a lot of connections to be made if you're taking advantage of all the available I/O's. Otherwise, mine went in without anything out of the ordinary.

Overall: Even with the hassle of having to pull/return a defective unit, I'd buy this unit again. What you get for the price can't be beat at this time. User inputs are fairly intuitive, and there's lots of custom sound/display options.

There is a YT review from back in Aug 12. FWIW, the author made a couple hasty assumptions. The display tile layout can not be re-arranged. I wish it was, as that would help make using steering wheel controls more predictive. Individual volume levels can only be adjusted when using that particular function(ie Phone volume when in midst of phone call, NAV volume when voice guidance is actually occurring, music volume when music audio is playing). I wish these could be individually set relative to each other, and turning the main volume up or down would adjust all at the same proportion, but that's not the case. These are picky little things, but could be turned into functional improvements with a firmware update.

CLARION, FIX THE VOLUME ADJUSTMENT BUG WHEN IN REVERSE PLEASE!

First NX702 was a LEMON and had to be returned for a new one. USB connection would work off and on. New one works great so far. Sent the first one in to Sonic for repair/replacement and they sent me a new radio! Thx!
