New GUI (Graphical User Interface)

The Clarion H.M.I. concept takes a unique form in the NX509A’s touch-panel graphical user interface with high-resolution on-screen display. A wide variety of functions, ranging from car navigation to AV entertainment, are consolidated into this intuitive userinterface so there are only 3 physical buttons present on the front panel, contributing to the clean looks of this model. No steep learning curves, so you can fulfill your enjoyment from day one.


Four powerful features, fine-tuned for the specific needs of drivers in Asia to offer a reliable and comfortable car navigation experience.

Map coverage:

Malaysia / Singapore / Thai / Indonesia / Brunei

● All-in-one map data for the above five countries will enable navigation assisted driving in this region with seamless convenience.

● Displays are available in 4 languages, and voiced guidance can be selected from 4 languages used in Asia for intuitive and comfortable navigation.

● With more than 15 main categories and more than 80 sub-categories, rich POI content lets you easily access just about any point of interest.

*The number of category may differ in each region.

● Map coverage reaches 100% of major Road network in Thai, Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei, so you can count on precise and efficient navigation without waste.

Direct control on touch-panel display

Smart touch-panel controls enable you to access information at the touch of a fingertip. Layouts are devised to enable instantaneous display of desired information, while detailed information can easily be called up with a light touch.

Rich POI database

With more than15 main categories and more than 80 sub-categories, Clarion car navigation’s POI content database offers access to just about any point of interest in your surroundings. In addition to petrol stations and tourist information offices, you can look up the closest ATM, swimming pools, specific business areas and much, much more... Needless to say, you can also search for any POI by its name. Last but not least, you can use “My POI” zone to create your own POI favourites file.

Text to speech

One step closer to clear and safe driving. While streets are displayed on the screen, the voice guidance tells actual name of street at next manoeuvre. Also, the system is able to tell you the direction to take, exactly like a passenger would do! For example, if you drive in Bangkok, you would hear “... After 55 m, turn left onto Thanon Bamrung Muang......”

Roads, junctions and bridges with elevations

Sophisticated and efficient navigation graphics

Elevation information on the road network is used to draw roads and bridges in a realistic way, so you won’t get “lost” at complex intersections. When travelling on a motorway, the system shows which lanes allow you to exit and which ones continue ahead, so you won’t miss an exit road. Buildings close to you are drawn as transparent objects to avoid obstructing the next intersection, while buildings further away are textured and easily recognisable.

Lane information

Signposts information

Topographical view

Elevation modelling and 3D rendering for a realistic view

Comprehensive digital elevation model data is used to draw height and depth features for a realistic landscape at all levels of zoom. While driving, hills and mountains are rendered in 3D to better represent your real world driving environment. 3D landmark data is integrated seamlessly into the graphical rendering in 3D mode, and it does not block the view of POIs and other useful information on the map.

Modelling terrain in 3D

3D landmarks

Fully customisable

View height and angle is completely adjustable to user preference

The system is completely flexible to any user preference. Not only scale or day/night illumination, but also 2D/3D, elevation, route information, display of POIs icons, route details and many others are easily adjustable.

iPod direct control via USB

Just connect the USB cable that came with your iPod to the NX509A’s rear USB input to control your iPod. Using the optional CCA723 cable will even let you watch iPod Video on the big screen. This same terminal can be used to play digital music stored on any USB memory device.

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

* For video playback , optional CCA723 cable required.

iPod ABC search & simple control mode

In addition to genre/album/song title browsing, complete iPod ABC Search convenience is provided. Besides, the functions of the iPod control wheel are emulated on the source unit’s control dial, so virtually the same operations are possible from both the iPod and the main unit.

Virtually the same operations are possible from both the iPod and the multimedia station.

iPod ABC search

BBE® MP for better sounding MP3/WMA/AAC files

BBE MP (Minimised Polynomial Non-Linear Saturation) process improves digitally compressed sound such as MP3/WMA/AAC by restoring the harmonics that are lost through compression, thereby reproducing the warmth, details and nuances that you would otherwise miss. BBE MP enhanced harmonics even serve to make regular CDs sound better.
