If you are still into in-dash navigation systems (even though portable ones are offering a long list multimedia capabilities) with hard disk drives you should consider the Eclipse AVN 5495 – if you have more than $2000 to spare that is. This navigation + entertainment system comes with a 30GB HDD which stores the navigation database as well as the Music Juke feature which automatically stores up to 3,000 tracks from CDs to create a music library. Since all the maps are stored on the HDD, the AVN5495 is able to manage navigation as well as provide DVD-Video or CD entertainment at the same time without any interruption.
The screen on the AVN5495 measures 6.5″ and supports touch control. The navigation software features multiple search modes, split screen displays as well as voice announcements and guidance.
We’re not audio experts here but those specs also sound very impressive: Sirius and HD radio ready, High-performance DSP, 5-mode soundfield control, 9-band EQ, etc… Yes there’s an FM Tuner too.
