Get there on time
Your navigation receiver's built for one thing — getting you to your destination. But if you're in a hurry (and who isn't?), sitting in traffic's almost as bad as being lost. JVC's KW-NT510HDT navigation receiver features rapid traffic updates and other alerts through its dedicated HD Radio™ tuner, so you'll be able to see congestion developing along your route and find a way around potential pitfalls. This handy travel companion also features Bluetooth®, HD Radio reception, and smartphone compatibility to make your drive more convenient.
More than just traffic reports
The dedicated traffic tuner lets you dial into the free Total Traffic Plus HD network — you'll enjoy access to real-time traffic info that'll help you steer clear of traffic jams. Other traffic info services only work in major metropolitan areas, but Total Traffic Plus HD works anywhere a station is broadcasting HD Radio traffic information — over 90 metro areas and counting. You'll also get sports, weather, entertainment, and news information onscreen if you want. And the new HD Radio Active Alerts feature shows you federal government alerts in text form on the navigation screen to warn you of severe weather or other emergencies in your area.
And you can stay on top of traffic while you're outside HD Radio range, too. With the help of an iPhone® app, the KW-NT510HDT will switch automatically to the Total Traffic Network over cellular signals when it senses you're out of range of an HD Radio signal.
Got a smartphone? You've got control
The KW-NT510HDT gives you varying degrees of functionality with different types of smartphones and connections. In brief:
iPhone with USB connection: iHeartRadio app control; Pandora® Internet radio app control; iPod control (audio only)
iPhone with JVC's iPod Audio/Video cable connection: all the above plus iPod video control (when parked) and audio from iPhone apps when receiver is in External Mode (these features not available for the iPhone 5)
Android™ with USB connection: music playback from your phone's SD card or internal memory
Android with Bluetooth connection: iHeartRadio app control; Pandora Internet radio app control; streaming music playback from your phone's internal memory or streaming music apps
BlackBerry® with USB connection: music playback from your phone's SD card or internal memory
BlackBerry with Bluetooth connection: Pandora Internet radio app control; streaming music playback from your phone's internal memory or streaming music apps
NaviBridge gives you easy GPS transfer from your devices
The free NaviBridge app lets you search for points of interest on your smartphone or tablet, then transfer the GPS coordinates right to the JVC KW-NT510HDT for turn-by-turn directions. If you're using an iPhone, you'll need to be connected via USB to use NaviBridge. Android users can take advantage of NaviBridge through Bluetooth.
You can follow the receiver's built-in maps of the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico on its responsive 6.1" touch display, and you'll also have 8 million searchable points of interest at your disposal. Text-to-speech spoken directions announce actual road names at turns, so you'll hear "turn right on Fillmore Avenue" instead of "take the next right." Junction View shows you a realistic depiction of an upcoming exit, complete with lane guides. The Picture-In-Picture view lets you see the big picture, plus a close-up detail. And 3D Landmarks shows you skyscrapers, statues, and other familiar structures in color to help you find your way through unfamiliar urban areas.
Add important accessories with ease
If you're a satellite radio fan, the receiver's ready to add SiriusXM programming with your subscription and an optional tuner. A dedicated rear-view camera input makes it easy to add nearly any universal camera to your vehicle for safety. And if you want to send video to a backseat or overhead monitor, you'll be able to employ the RCA rear video output to keep your passengers entertained.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this JVC stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the KW-NT510HDT, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.
Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.
iPod note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility.
