Better than FM

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.
