New Clarion Receiver - Sirius - Navigation - More

May 5, 2006

Clarion will be introducing the next generation of N.I.C.E hardware. The NICE P200.

N.I.C.E. Makes Technology Integration Easy

The N.I.C.E. acronym describes Clarion's synergy of technologies that integrate Navigation and In-Car Entertainment into a single product. There's really nothing else like it. Both N.I.C.E. and the new compact N.I.C.E. P200 take the popularity of a transportable GPS navigation unit with a built-in GPS antenna and combine it with a flexible (split capacity) Hard Disc Drive for both mapping and entertainment. As a navigation system, these have all of the power you'd expect including a 4,000 capacity address book, 2 million POIs throughout the fully mapped US and Canada, voice prompts, multiple route selection options and mapping views and a convenient touch screen HMI. The 20GB Hard Disc Drive is split to allow 10GB of music, video, or photo storage and playback. N.I.C.E. P200 also syncs with a PC for contacts, address book and scheduling data via USB 2.0 because it's portable with a rechargeable battery.

The TFT LCD monitor on the N.I.C.E. units displays high-resolution images and graphics that are visually impressive, yet provides sensible touch screen control icons. Maps appear clearly in 2D, 3D or Split screen. Text menus are easy to read and navigate. Pictures are vivid and colorful (even using the handy slide show function). Movies and video playback are outstanding. The touch screen control means your next destination or entertainment choice is as close as your fingertip.

10GB of Entertainment

Half of the unit's 20GB Hard Disc Drive is reserved for storage of entertainment media. You can load a variety of audio or video formats as well as photo albums that you can display with a slide show feature. Once stored, select the “Photo” icon to watch a slideshow or select the “Music Playback” icon to play audio files through the existing sound system. All transfer between the unit and storage device is done using the built-in USB port.

Connect to Sirius Satellite Radio

With the addition of Clarion's NAVSIR Sirius Satellite Radio tuner and antenna, you can seamlessly access over 120 channels of Sirius Satellite Radio's coast-to-coast programming at the touch of a button. The audio programming from Sirius is broadcast directly to the vehicle's existing radio or the internal speaker. The display also shows all of the important Sirius programming text.

Inputs for External Video Sources

The high-resolution TFT LCD isn't just for navigation and touch screen control. Users can easily connect a variety of other video source units to the audio/video input such as rear view camera, video game system, external DVD or VCR, or the output of a digital camera. Just select the “A/V” option on the touch screen after connecting and you're ready to watch.
