The GPS works great, the sound is lovely, and the UI is snappy.

Menus are pretty intuitive, the ipod interface works well, and the touchscreen is pretty responsive.

Unfortunately, my experience with JVC has been that software and map updates are very infrequent.

I really like this unit overall. The Bluetooth integration, bright display, audio quality and user interface are all top-notch.

This unit gets a 1 star from me for shipping with old maps (at least 2-3 years old when I got mine), and what's worse, no available updates. JVC tells me to check with Navteq, Navteq tells me to check with JVC. I'm pretty sure they are *never* going to release an update. What earthly good is a GPS without current maps?

This is my last JVC product. Fool me once...

When I was looking I had a few items that were important to me. I wanted good sound, bluetooth music streaming as well as hands-free with an external mic, a subwoofer connection, the ability to use it on the road without worrying about complex menus, and the ability to easily switch back and forth from my wife's phone to mine. After checking out reviews, user manuals, and playing with a few models in-store this guy won handily.

I've been nothing but happy with it so far. We can switch easily between phones, it displays our names and all we have to do is click on the phone we want to use. The GPS works great, the sound is lovely, and the UI is snappy. We tested several units in the store that were sluggish, but this guy responded quickly to all our button presses. A responsive UI is a requirement for me, I want to spend as little time thinking about my radio as possible while I'm driving.

Something I found neat, is that when I hook the iPhone up via USB, album art work displays on the screen. While that is no where near a necessity, it is a neat little feature. Using the iPhone from the receive isn't bad. I have tons of music (over 30GB on an iPhone 4S) and I have had no problem finding an album and getting it to play. It isn't as smooth and lovely as navigating the iPhone directly, but it gets the job done without too much fuss.

Oh, another fun feature is that with the right cable, you can display movies on the screen from your iPhone. This is a feature I tested to make sure it works, but I am almost never sitting around in the car long enough for this to be useful.

I have used this JVC radio for 3 months now and I really like the features. I got the IPOD cable and a backup camera to use with this radio. I have been happy with the functions of the radio and after getting use to the GPS, I have found it to be as acurrate as the Garmin I have used for years. There are a few things I would like the GPS to do that I think a software update would fix, 1 is to have the speed limit of my vehicle displayed, 2 is to have the GPS work automatically with time zones when trips arrival times and the system time is set. The GPS system knows this data, so why not display it on the screen. Once I got familiar with the menus it is fairly easy to move between functions, but it does take a little time to get through the screens because there are so many features. The back up camera I purchased failed within 3 days, but the camera manf. replaced it with no problem. The radio installed fairly easy in my 2007 Ford Fusion, however the GPS link cable barely made it to the rear trunk lid. It can be mounted in other places but I wanted it outside the car and out of sight as much as possible. The radio HD stations do not seem to work as great as far as the reception as the factory radio. When I do an auto-tune I get the strongest 5 stations and sometimes not 5. I read that the radio has to be grounded well and I have not verified this yet. Overall I like the purchase of the radio, the sound is great.

Had this unit for a year now. Maps were out of date when i got it in late 2011. JVC keeps telling me there will be an annual map update but nothing is out there. Do not buy JVC GPS products!

Having previously owned a KNX-7000 I was really excited to get hold of the new JVC Navi. JVC tends to offer a lot of features for the dollar.

Unfortunately, once up and running, I discovered a software deficiency that I deem as so fundamental that it took the KW from a 5 star to a 1 star rating. Stated simply, the JVC does not allow you to view your routes as text.

Just about any GPS on the planet will allow you to view a listing of the proposed route. This is critical as any GPS will at times propose a route that makes no sense. Equally important, you often want to see that after exiting route XYZ, you will be making a left turn on Maple Street.

The JVC does offer have what they call "route simulation" but this is a slow process whereby it runs through the route in fast forward, voice prompts and all. Again, no way to simply look and see if the route makes sense or what lies ahead. Imagine printing out directions from map quest but only being allowed to see the route one turn at a time once you are underway.

The earlier JVC Navis did not have this deficiency. I thought I must have overlooked something and contacted JVC support. Here was their reply:

"I understand you would like to view your routes from the KW-NT50HDT. I do apologize but he unit only has the simulation option. It does not have a text box with the turn by turn directions. I did double check on our 2012 units and the same applies to those models as well. "

It is a real shame. From every other perspective this is really an excellent head unit. I would likely give it 4 or 5 stars otherwise.
