Navigation systems have proven to be quite useful for many drivers. This is primarily because navigation systems for vehicles has the capacity to provide drivers with the most recent and updated information on the various roads and the various traffic conditions. And in that way, cars and vehicles can simply steer clear of roads that are heavily congested with traffic. In the process, car navigation systems help drivers save on time and on gas.
Now, there is yet another new car navigation device sent out to the market. This one is from Clarion and it is an in-car navigation device which runs on Windows Automotive. Windows Automotive is actually based on the Windows CE 5.0. This new in-car navigation system is named the NAX963HD. It has got a 30 GB hard drive to provide you with ample map data. It is not bulky for it just around an inch thick giving you more space. You see, you can simply stash this device just right beneath your seat.
If you are planning on purchasing this device along with some Volvo Universal parts, you might want to think about it first. You see, you still would have to import this device straight from Europe for it is still not yet for sale in the United States. And it also holds a tag price of around US$3,200 at that. Plus shipping and handling of course. However, if you think that this is just worth that much, then of course, go right ahead.
