Features

Overview: The Kenwood KNA-NT100 NAVTEQ Traffic Receiver receives real-time traffic data from NAVTEQ and displays it on your compatible 2010-up Kenwood in-dash navigation head unit's video display. Real-time traffic is delivered over FM radio using a radio data system (RDS) sub-carrier channel. NAVTEQ Traffic offers the following real-time traffic services.

  • Comprehensive, reliable nationwide coverage
  • Traffic flow conditions with speed values
  • Unplanned incidents such as accidents and stalled vehicles
  • Planned incidents such as road construction and closures
  • Traffic data designed for seamless integration with digital map content

Note: Because NAVTEQ traffic is subsidized by unobtrusive pop-up advertising there is no subscription fees. Service is offered in 80 US Markets

Compatibility: The Kenwood KNA-NT100 NAVTEQ Traffic Receiver is compatible with the following 2010-up Kenwood navigation units:

  • DNX5160
  • DNX6160
  • DNX6960
  • KNA-G610

NAVTEQ Traffic: NAVTEQ Traffic provides the traffic flow and incident information for the NAVTEQ Traffic RDS service. This data is collected from multiple sources across the country, including leading commercial traffic data providers, government departments of transportation, police and emergency services, road sensors, cameras, and real-time aircraft reports. NAVTEQ Traffic frequently performs extensive data quality processing to provide the most complete and accurate nationwide traffic information feed.

NAVTEQ Traffic Technologies: NAVTEQ Traffic's highly-accurate data is a result of combining the right sources with the right processing:

  • Proprietary Sensors: NAVTEQ operates the world's largest proprietary sensor network, and their highly accurate sensor network covers 35% more roadway than the nearest competitor.
  • Probe: Robust commercial and consumer GPS and cellular probes improve coverage and accuracy.
  • Data Validation: Proprietary data corroboration and verification methods check and recheck data accuracy.
  • Data Processing: NAVTEQ's Smart Traffic Processor blends and optimizes the widest array of traffic information to provide comprehensive and reliable real-time traffic information. Unique processing capabilities combine and prioritize multiple data sources to provide the most accurate speed values possible.

Installation: The Kenwood NAVTEQ Traffic Receiver installs between your compatible Kenwood navigation head unit and your vehicle's antenna cable. The KNA-NT100 consists of two Fakra connectors and comes with a female Motorola adapter cable, as well as a male Motorola adapter cable that allow the KNA-NT100 to be installed in series between your vehicle's antenna and your Kenwood navigation head unit. The adapter cables plug into the KNA-NT100's Fakra connectors, while your vehicle's antenna cable plugs into the female Motorola adapter cable of the KNA-NT100, and the male Motorola adapter cable of the KNA-NT100 plugs into the antenna port on your Kenwood navigation unit. The KNA-NT100 also features an attached 5' cord terminated by a mini-USB type-B connector which needs to be plugged into the mini-USB port on back of your Kenwood navigation receiver for content, control, and power transfer. The NAVTEQ Traffic Receiver features an integrated self-adhesive mount and comes with four wire-ties for cable management.

Better than FM

Written By Chappy, Brownsburg, IN on Wednesday, June 22, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just added this product to a KNA-G610 Kenwood Garmin unit. I must say it works far quicker and more reliably than the other FM tuner that comes with most Garmin units.

The ads are very small and unobtrusive and well worth the lifetime subscription to updated on-time traffic information.
