JVC introduces KW-NT30HD and KW-NT50HD in-car nav systems with iPhone controlled HD Radio

by Gareth Mankoo

JVC’s awesome showing at CES this year included the KW-NT30HD and KW-NT50HD navigation systems that come in handy in times of bad traffic. Well, besides a forewarning, it also dishes out some palatable music for those who walk right into the traffic trap. So, what’s special you’re wondering? Well, they both sport 6.1-inch displays with HD radios, USB iPhone connectivity and good integration with ClearChannel’s iheartradio app. The main difference between the two is that the KW-NT50HD offers lifetime free subscription to Total Traffic HD+ network. Now there are additional features that you can exploit from that, such as all-US, Canada and Puerto Rico maps.

Both systems are expected in March. The KW-NT30HD will cost $1,000, while the KW-NT50HD will come for $1,200.
