Emotion and performance infused INTEGRATION

Transform your motoring lifestyle with performance that responds to the driver’s senses and high-performance CPU-based car navigation.

Our powerful AV-N (Audio Visual & Navigation) line-up is comprised of 3 models, including the AV-N integrated top model MAX973HD with a 30 GB hard disk to support the Navigation engine’s high-speed processing, as well as the Black Box-wired VRX878RVD and MAX678RVD that allow smooth system upgrading to the HDD Navigation System NAX973HD. The map data covering 30 countries contained in the 30GB hard disk, voice guidance in 9 languages, voice recognition in 6 languages, and a high-performance CPU-based engine all combine to provide high-performance navigation. Compatibility with various compressed digital media including DVD/CD/MP3, interfaces that enable seamless connection with hands-free Bluetooth® telephony, and the quality sound that comes from Clarion’s accumulated technology, such as 2-Zone, create a world of high-definition sound and images. All of this, condensed into a single interface... that is the idea behind the Multimedia Station. Clarion is a master on integrated solutions that meet your needs. Three new Portable Navigation models are introduced in 2007, they combine not only high-performing navigation, but also Picture Viewer, an MP3/WMA player, as well as Bluetooth in the MAP770 and MAP670. Beyond enjoyment of images and sound, the convergence of Navigation functions that support comfortable and safe driving will bring about new possibilities as the mainstream of the future.

SUPERB SOUND with integrated flexibility

Supporting a wide variety of digital formats and reproduces them with the highest quality sound.

Digital technology, evolving at light-speed, has enabled the data storage capacity of musical media to increase dramatically while decreasing the physical size. What’s more, with the increasing interface connectivity of various equipment, it is now possible to seamlessly link your car’s interior with the outside world. Clarion, in the field of digital technology, has developed the Sound Restorer to reproduce sound that is infinitely close to the original. It achieves sound perfection by correcting and compensating for compressed music data like MP3/WMA/AAC on media such as DVD ± R/RW, and portable media players such as iPod®, as well as USB and SD Memory cards. You can enjoy the portability of digital media while marvelling at the superb sound. Bring the music you were listening to outside, right into your car and continue enjoying it without a second thought. At Clarion, we have always acknowledged the importance of sound in the continuing evolution of digital technology, so you won’t have to sacrifice quality for portability, or vice versa.

Taking safety to new extremes with CONNECTIVITY

Changing your in-car communication with safety that’s a cut above.

Talk on your mobile phone while keeping a firm grip on the steering wheel, and hear the person you’re talking to through your car’s speakers. Thanks to wireless connection via Bluetooth®, the safety of your motoring lifestyle has evolved another step. Clarion has extended its 2007 source unit line-up with Bluetooth receivers featuring the next-generation wireless standard, known for its superiority against obstacles and providing communication at 1Mbps. By using a Bluetooth compatible mobile phone, you can link your car to the outside world seamlessly, for streamlined, safe communication. Also, you can integrate a Bluetooth compatible iPod® and control it from the source unit. A USB memory stick containing music files can be directly connected at the front of several 2007 Clarion products. Many devices can also be connected to the auxiliary input on the back. We wish to create a new style of communication that will resonate with drivers of the IT generation and to pursue an interface that boosts the safety of the mobile environment. Clarion’s H.M.I. concept which is the harbinger of a new driving era, will cushion your car with an added sense of safety.

DESIGN that defies conventional thinking

The ultimate human-machine interface design that throws conventionality out the window.

A 3-dimensional form that casts off the stereotypical car interior, simple and stylish lines that suggest modern art, stand-out personality and individuality that break the traditional mould and a human-machine interface that is fully attuned to the operations of the driver. With the DXZ778RUSB and DXZ578RUSB, our high-class source unit models feature the SLIDETRAK sliding face on the left and right where you can perform various operations. What’s more, with a variety of functional and attractive designs, including our FB278RBT model featuring a futuristic metal shark gill-like design, as well as the DUB278RMP source unit which imports the concept of modern living into your car, Clarion’s H.M.I. continues to evolve and breathe fresh excitement into the mobile environment.
