Function display screens for full system information

Clarion’s in-dash, 7-inch monitor is the source for all media and function information, allowing quick access to a host of features with a simple touch of the on-screen menu. The menu is laid out in an easy-to understand fashion by displaying all actions related to the selected media source.

CeNET for hide-away navigation connection

The CeNET interface enables connection of the NP509E flash memory navigation system (via optional CCB509 CeNET converter) to the source unit for fully integrated and interactive car navigation.

Built-in Bluetooth® hands-free

With a Bluetooth compatible head unit, you can wirelessly connect your Bluetooth capable mobile phone to listen to calls through your car’s audio system. HFP/OPP/A2DP/ AVRCP protocols are supported. The mobile phone contacts list can be synchronized with the head unit*. Then you can directly dial the phone number from the multimedia station.

DivX® compatible

DivX is a common media language that delivers a pure digital experience. DivX enriched video files deliver superior video quality and enables storage of more information on a single disc. DivX compatibility in a source unit means that DivX encoded files burned using a PC can be viewed and enjoyed in your car, just like you’d be able to at home.

iPod direct control via USB

By connecting an iPod to the source unit’s USB input using the USB cable provided with your iPod, it will be possible to control the iPod. The same USB terminal can also be used to connect a USB memory device with digital music files stored on it.

* To connect an iPod, please use the USB cable included with your iPod.

* For video playback, optional CCA723 cable required.

2-Zone entertainment

Clarion’s 2-Zone entertainment system divides the in-car spatial environment into discrete front and rear zones. As a result, it is possible for the front and rear seat passengers to enjoy different entertainment sources without interfering with each other.

Built-in High Pass/Low Pass Filter

The internal High Pass and Low Pass Filters allow you to set the frequency range of the audio signal that’s output to each channel to best match the acoustic characteristics of the front and rear speakers and the subwoofer.

3-band parametric equaliser

The entire sound spectrum is separated into high, medium and low ranges. The level of each can be adjusted separately. Customise the sound to suit your taste and your car.

6-channel audio pre-out

Equipped with 6-channel outputs for Front 2 channels + Rear 2 channels + Subwoofer 2 channels and crossover settings for high sound quality reproduction.

24-bit D/A converter for superb sound reproduction

The digital realm is made up of unnaturally square sound waves, as opposed to the smoothly undulating sound waves characteristic of the real-world environment. That is why Clarion’s 24-bit D/A (Digital-to-Analogue) converter over-samples the digital signal to recreate the natural nuances and expressions lost during the sound reproduction process.

4 preset wallpaper designs

Background patterns of the navigation system and audio & video sources can be customised to suit your taste or your car’s colour scheme.

Dedicated rear vision camera RCA input

A dedicated rear vision camera input is fitted, so that you may install an optional camera enabling you to see the area behind your vehicle. The increased view encourages and facilitates safer driving.

Add car navigation functionality any time

Enjoy all the benefits of in-dash car navigation: Programme your destination via the main unit’s touch screen, listen to voice guidance via your vehicle’s speakers and see your high-resolution map on a huge 7″ screen, plus much more.
