Clarion Ships Its 2007 High-Speed Navigation System Just In Time For the Holiday Season

“This Holiday Let Clarion Guide The Way.”

Cypress, CA – (November 20, 2006) – Clarion Corporation of America, a leading manufacturer of mobile electronics, simultaneously expands into two key product categories as it delivers its NAX970HD High-Performance Navigation unit and MAX675VD 2-DIN A/V source unit.

Clarion is known as a long-standing market leader in mobile navigation in Japan. The introduction of the NAX970HD navigation unit marks the first time that Clarion has brought this high-speed technology and its 3D menu interface to the North American market.

The NAX970HD 30GB HDD navigation system utilizes a high-speed processor to perform ultra-fast coast-to-coast route calculation in a matter of seconds. The unit’s slick 3D menu operation is effortlessly controlled by the MAX675VD’s large 7-inch motorized touch-screen, the largest screen size available in a 2DIN unit. While using Navigation, the user can also enjoy their iPod, Satellite Radio or others sources. The turn-by-turn voice prompts come through loud and clear to any of the system's nine million points of interest.

“Users will instantly realize Clarion’s high-performance advantage, whether operating the system’s ultra-cool 3D menu or when simply calculating a route,” states Adam Thomas, Vice President of Marketing for Clarion Corporation of America. “This is just a glimpse of how our products continue to offer innovative and technologically enriched features to improve the consumer experience in mobile environments.”

The newly available NAX970HD and MAX675VD each have an M.S.R.P. of $1,199.99 and are readily available for the 2006 holiday selling season. See the website for a local authorized dealer.
