PROS:

1. Solid build quality

2. Play video & MP3 (though I haven't used these features since I bought it mainly for the GPS functionality)

3. Good price (when it's on sale and when they fix all the bugs below)

4. Uses NAVTEQ map data

CONS:

1. Too thick and too heavy due to the 20gb hard drive inside

2. Too slow, everytime you try to move the map it reads the hard drive and then updates the screen, this process takes like 1-2 seconds and in computer terms it's a life time

3. You can hear the hard drive spin up & down, kinda ennoying

4. The POI feature sucks big time, you would need to enter a state and then a city first, what if you only know the name of the restaurant and don't know exactly what city it's in ???

5. There's no AC adapter, you would need to go to RadioShack and get one if you want to charge it at home and not in the car

6. It takes forever to LOCK on sat signal and this is even outdoors in the car driving, even when it locks on signal it would from time to time lose the signal, what good is a GPS navigator if there's no signal ???

7. It can get warm due to the hard drive

8. Update firmware requires a SD card not less than 128MB and not bigger than 512MB, nowadays people use 2GB cards so this is a big hassle

9. It doesn't display all the street names, only the one you're driving on and if you're lucky maybe a few other ones around your current position

In short, this is such a waste of money but luckily I didn't buy it online and the store I bought it from has a 30-day money back return policy, I also bought the Mio C310x at the same time I bought this JVC and the Mio is such a wonderful GPS, it beats this piece-of-junk JVC in each and every category (the mio doesn't play video unless you get the C710) and I paid 70 bucks less than what I paid for the JVC

I too purchased this unit from CompUSA when it was recently reduced to $199. At that price point, this is a great GPS unit.

When I received the eAvinu, the first thing I did was run a routing and performance test between this unit and my Pocket PC's CoPilot Live Bluetooth setup.

The satellite acquision time was about the same for each. The CoPilot Bluetooth receiver (a branded EMTAC with the 12 channel SiRF III chip) was actually slower in a couple of heavy overcast situations. They both locked onto a similar number of sats, but not always. In fact, as I write this the CoPilot is locked on 6 sats, the eAvinu 7! Not bad from the "inferior" 8 channel JVC.

In my in-car tests, both showed random routing quirkyness. The CoPilot refuses to correctly identify the position of my house on the street, has trouble with elevated freeways, sometimes showing you on the surface street beside it. The eAvinu sometimes tells you to make a strange turn when it attempts to reroute. Both got me where I was going with little fuss.

The eAvinu's touch screen is very bright. The buttons are big, no stylus needed. It offers a number of map views, 2D and 3D "through the windshield." The voice choices are limited, and there is a very limited text-to-speech. Most folks say the eAvinu doesn't do TTS, but my unit advises me to take "US-50" or "I-80," just no TTS street names. It doesn't display speed or altitude, but it does display an "ETA." The POI file on this thing is wonderful, really large.

I love the mp3 player. It attenuates the music to give driving instructions. The movie player is a little particular about its file types. I can only get .wmv files play. You can only watch movies while stopped, natch.

I bought this unit just because it plays videos and it is inexpensive. I am not happy with the product. I used Garmin2610 before and this unit is inferior compare to Garmin. The major problem with unit is: "it doesn't catch the signal properly". I went to New York city and moving around all over the streets and it never get the Satellite signal. It only detected the signal on West Side Highway. Garmin didn't have this problem, it loses the signal in New York often but Not like JVC which never receive satellite signal. I went to Florida and I was not happy with it's perfomance.

I picked it up from CompUSA for $199.00 and it was up and running right out of the box. it actually gives you an overview/tutorial of the device as soon as you power it up and lets you select your timezone. It has different map view options and the display is clear. Touch screen is nice and the menus are easy to browse thru. lots of POI. I found starbucks in different towns and it displays phone # too. great storage space, 5 gigs allocated to music and video. SD card is detected easily and lets you increase the memory. its a little heavy and thick too, but so are some of the TOMTOM and GARMIN devices. overall and a great value for what I paid. I read on CNET that people had problems with this device and I did some more reading about it. JVC has a firmware update that fixes most of the problems. however, I havent had any problems so I havent updated my firmware.

Just like a few previous reviewers, I got this for 199 from CompUSA. It's actually CompUSA's fault that there was confusion about AC adapter, they ship KVPX9BN, not KVPX9B (which comes with AC adapter). Overall the product is pretty good, I drove from NYC to Philadelphia with this JVC along side with it, I had a Garmin 330 that my friend owns. The directions on both were almost identical except for a few side streets at the end. But both led you to the destination without errors. I'm not sure if it depends on the location, but I never lost the GPS signal on the JVC. The main difference that I saw between Garmin and JVC, was the fact that JVC doesn't tell you if you you miss your exit, and just recalculates the new directions, where Garmin actually tells you that you went the wrong way, but even here the result is the same, both recalculate the new directions rather quick. If you can get this unit for uder 300, it's a good buy. If you plan to spend more, then I would do some more research.
