Clarion's NX807 navigation receiver is a tremendous triple threat: it's a fantastic standalone navigation receiver with a beautiful, bountiful screen; it's a terrific way to integrate your iPhone® into your car with Apple CarPlay; and it can be the foundation for an amazing fully digital sound system. You can enjoy sweet guidance across all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico and Canada, along with 11 million points of interest and 3D mapping that allows realistic views of terrain, buildings, and landmarks in select metropolitan areas.
The large icons help you find what you want quickly, so you can keep your eyes on the road.
Apple CarPlay puts optimized command of your iPhone's functions and apps right in your dash with a simple, one-wire connection. If you have an iPhone 5 or newer, you can hop into your car, connect your phone to the stereo, and use the sleek, easy-to-use interface to access the apps you need. The NX807 gives you fingertip or voice control of Apple apps like Maps, Music, Phone, Messages, and more. The 7" capacitive touchscreen works just like your tablet, so you'll feel right at home.
The NX807's digital optical output makes the receiver the foundation for Clarion's Full Digital Sound lineup consisting of a processor, tweeters, 6-3/4" speakers, and a 10" subwoofer — all available as individual components or as a package (pictured below). With this unique system, you can hear your music reproduced without the need for inefficient digital-to-analog conversion. The result is pristine, precise sound that won't require a ton of external power to perform optimally.
Clarion's Full Digital Sound System includes a Z3 processor with two tweeters, two Z7 6-3/4" speakers, and a Z25W 10" subwoofer.
Even if you're not interested in Clarion's Full Digital Sound system, you can use the receiver's digital optical output for system expansion, including adding a signal processor to ensure your sound's as clean and pure as the driven snow when it hits your speakers.
The NX807's ideal for 4" tall dash openings, and it gives you a lot of real estate for your fingers and your eyes. The display supports "flick" operation, just like your smartphone. The large vivid diagonal icons offer intuitive navigation through the receiver's different functions, so you won't have to guess where the next touch of the screen will lead you. Variable color key illumination offers 728 colors to choose from, so you're sure to find something to complement your car's interior lighting. The motorized screen also lets you choose from multiple viewing angles.
The HDMI input allows this Clarion to get more from select smartphone apps and even play select video files from phones (when parked). You can even mirror the screen from select MHL-compatible Android™ phones on the NX807's display with the correct cables connected.
You'll find a pair of USB inputs in the rear, so you can switch easily between your phone and a thumb drive or another device. Clarion also provides an audio-compatible camera input so you can connect a backup cam and both hear and see what's happening behind you, while the rear RCA audio/video input can accommodate another source.
To complement the possibilities of the Full Digital Sound family of products, this receiver boasts a full-featured 15-band graphic equalizer, so you can control the audio spectrum between 25 and 16,000 Hz with ease. You can adjust the EQ and gain for each source independently, so you won't have to adjust the volume whenever you switch from a high-level source to something quieter, like the radio. Built-in high- and low-pass filters ensure your speakers aren't working overtime to reproduce sounds you can't hear.
The NX807 will play high-res lossless FLAC audio files from your flash drive, so you can enjoy full-bore 24-bit/192 kHz clarity behind the wheel. Clarion includes a handy remote for additional sonic adjustments.
Built-in Bluetooth lets you talk hands-free on your compatible phone so you can keep your hands on the wheel. When a call comes in, you can tap the screen to answer the call and hear your caller over the speakers. Clarion includes an external microphone that maximizes the fidelity of your calls. Of course, you can stream music from your compatible device too.
If you're looking for radio stations that won't fade away as you hit the road, add a SiriusXM tuner to this Clarion to enjoy satellite radio's deep programming. The NX807 also includes a sensitive AM/FM tuner to catch all your local stations too.
This receiver gives you easy control of your smartphone's Pandora app. You can skip tracks, change stations, and thumbs up/thumbs down songs just like you do online. Android phones control Pandora via Bluetooth, while iPhones control through CarPlay.
Enjoy watching DVDs up front while you're parked, or hook up a video screen in the back so the kids can watch movies as you drive — thanks to Clarion's "2-Zone" operation, your backseat gang can watch a video while you and your co-pilot enjoy music up front.
In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.
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.
Smartphone note: If you're going to use your smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.
Very nice units (I bought two of them). The bass/treble range, power and built-in EQ is excellent. Installation on my 2007 F150 was pretty simple. Installing the second unit on my wife's 2007 RAV4 this week.

Average Customer Review(s):
Very good device happy Customer
Pros: optical out, fast interface, decent Navi, carplay is stable on iOS 12, loads of input options, great price Cons: poor quality LCD with wash out colors, bug when switching from Bluetooth to carplay or vice versa that causes huge distortion until you press the volume button (optical output), very loud fan, no EQ on optical output I really wish the fan on this thing is not so loud. I think that's what bothers me most about this head unit. I came from a pioneer avh 4100nex which is virtually silent.
Very nice units (I bought two of them). The bass/treble range, power and built-in EQ is excellent. Installation on my 2007 F150 was pretty simple. Installing the second unit on my wife's 2007 RAV4 this week.
Pros: Excellent sound, fairly simple installation, nice range of applications.
Cons: The wiring harness diagram is not very clear. Where does the brown wire from the head unit for phone interruption connect? And, the sound level for warnings and notifications (i.e. navigation directions) is much lower than the receiver.
Easy install. This head unit has more features on it than I will ever use.
Pros: Easy install. User interface is easy to navigate.
Cons: More often than not, touch screen is not active upon first powering up. Turn unit off then on again and touch screen works fine.
It was easy to install. Go to Clarion 's website to see what works well with this unit.
Cons: Doesn't work with newer ipods
SUPER AWESOME DEAL ON THIS AWESOME STEREO! SUPER HELPFUL CUSTOMER SUPPORT!!!
I've always had good luck with Clarion radios and this is a good price i haven't installed it yet but i'm sure it will be nice
Great radio/navigation for the price. Adaption connectors make it a breeze for the installation.
In this case you get what you pay for. Clarion radios have exceptional sound and the NX807 is no different. The CD/DVD player is crystal clear and the radio sounds great with no static. Connecting a smartphone via Bluetooth is simple and straightforward. I use the USB connection to charge my phone and play music off a flash drive. The navigation system is easy to use but I am still learning about it from the CD ROM included by Clarion. This is by far the best package for the price.
Pros: Great sound and easy to use touch panel.
Cons: Tricky to install but worth the trouble.
Great radio for the price. The GPS is a little slow when entering an address but it is not too big of a deal. The apple integration and rearview camera is great and adds safety to the driver. I had a couple of questions during the install and Crutchfield's phone support was amazing. I know there is cheaper places to buy this, but with Crutchfield support and them doing all the work to make sure everything is compatable with your vehicle is worth the extra $$. I am already working on mu next project and will buy from them again, even if it cost me a little more. Their prices are very competative and therefore the little extra you might pay is worth it.
Pros: Great radio and features for the price. Easy install.
Cons: GPS is a little slow when entering an address.
The Nav is great. Alil different than your garmins but it works well. Clear screen for dvds and the Nav screen. One of the top units I've dealt with
Great head unit that has all the options for a great price! I added the backup camera and Sirius XM and everything was plug and play!
Pros: Great product does everything I want!
Cons: Nothing really, but it would be nice to be able to play videos through Apple CarPlay without jail breaking your phone
Great product, would reccomend it anyone easy to install and so far no problems.
Pros: Everything about it.
Cons: Every time I restart my car I have to change the voice guidance, doesn't stay muted.
this CLARiiON is as expected excellent well done Everything works seamlessly Very user-friendly I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an upgrade. I plan to eventually add the digital Z3 processor can't wait !
Pros: Speed sensor warning. to many others to list
Cons: No cons yet.
This unit is very nice. Easy install. I love the nav system. I'm not a fan of the buttons at the bottom. I prefer the flush smooth screen of other units, but this is a very high quality unit and it really brought out the sound in the new kicker speakers.
Pros: Quality, features,sound
Cons: Buttons along the bottom
Excellent product. Very easy to operate and understand.

6.95" Motorized Touchscreen: The Clarion NX807 has a motorized 6.95" widescreen (16:9) touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480 (RGB) and 1,152,000 total pixels. The integrated display provides a high-resolution video monitor for watching video from a DVD or connected smartphone. The unit's touchscreen panel also features interactive controls making menu navigation easy.
Note: To prevent the displaying of video while the vehicle is in motion, the bright green wire in the supplied wiring harness must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. While the vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view all of the other displays and menus. Video can only displayed when the vehicle's parking brake is engaged. If you try to view video with the vehicle in motion, the head unit will simply display "CAUTION! Video is disabled for your safety".
Variable Button Illumination: Physical operation buttons are lined up along the bottom of the NX807 creating a simple clutter-free design. You can set the head unit's button illumination to one of twelve preset colors or have the unit scan through all the preset colors. You can also select three custom user colors by adjusting red, yellow and blue values.
Dimmer & Brightness Control: The receiver's display & button illumination automatically dims to a preset brightness when the vehicle's headlights are turned on. The wiring harness includes an orange/white lead that should be connected to the vehicle's parking light circuit in order for the dimmer feature to operate. You can also manually adjust the unit's Day & Night display brightness from 0-20.
Start Up Times: The NX807 has a start up time of approximately 13.1 seconds from Off to the Home Menu screen or 33.7 seconds from Off to the Navigation Map Screen.
Remote Control: The Clarion NX807 comes with an IR wireless remote control and offers compatibility with factory steering wheel controls (adapter sold separately) for added convenience.
Anti-Theft Code: You may program the unit with a 4 digit security code. Once the unit has been programmed with a security code, the code must be entered to use the unit after it has been disconnected from power.
Clarion Mobile Map Software w/ TomTom Maps: The NX807 features a built-in navigation system with everything you need to get to your destination quickly and efficiently. The NX807's map database (by TomTom) provides coverage of the United States (all 50 states), Canada, and Puerto Rico. Navigation data is stored on the unit's pre-installed 8GB microSD memory card for quick access and response. The NX807's integrated Clarion Mobile Map software provides turn-by-turn visual and voice assistance to direct you to your selected destination. The built-in software quickly calculates step-by-step directions to any destination available on the included navigation map.
Note: While this receiver's map database was judged to be as accurate as possible at the time of its release, a map database can never be 100% accurate. Road information that is maintained in the map databases, such as turn restrictions or road names may change over time.
Map Updates: It is easy to keep the navigation system up to date via naviextras.com and your Windows PC (XP and newer). Simply download new map data from Clarion's portal site (clarion.naviextras.com), store the updated map data on a microSD card and insert it into the Clarion NX807 via the front-panel microSD card slot which is hidden behind the motorized touchscreen monitor. You have 30 days from purchase to download the latest available map free of charge; after 30 days there will be a charge per map update download.
GPS (Global Position System): Clarion's built-in navigation helps you find your way to your destination with an integrated GPS receiver & external GPS antenna. The Clarion NX807 features a built-in SiRF GPS receiver and includes a GPS antenna which can be mounted to the outside of your vehicle via its magnetic base or on the dash with the included two-side tape. The NX807 uses Global Position System (GPS) satellites, and a digital roadway map database to calculate and display vehicle positioning and travel direction. The NX807 considers vehicle speed an heading changes, together with longitude and latitude information, to accurately determine vehicle heading and position on a digital map. Signal from GPS satellites are used to determine the vehicle location.
Note: The navigation receiver took approximately 11.3 seconds to calculate directions from Virginia to Las Vegas. It only took about 10.1 seconds to calculate directions from Virginia to Detroit. These tests were done inside the Crutchfield Lab of the Crutchfield Headquarters. Results will vary based on length of calculated route and your surrounding area.
Smart 3D & 2D Maps: On-screen 3D & 2D rendered maps make navigating from point A to point B simple and seamless. The NX807 automatically changes the style of the on-screen maps that is most useful and suited for your current location. Beautiful 3D landmarks are generated throughout the maps, offering realistic key points along your travel route. While 2D mapping offers a clean look and feel that offers you a better sense of the distance between locations. The map screen's brightness and color scheme are automatically adjusted to provide maximum visibility without glare or eye strain when you turn the car's headlights on/off or at a set time of day. The receiver's on-screen map offers the following helpful features to assist you along your route.
Audible Alerts: The Clarion NX807 offers various audible alerts and functions to help you get to your destination safely. The unit will attenuate the audio of the other sources during navigation voice-prompts.
Where Am I?: This screen contains information about the current position (or approximately the last known position if GPS reception is not available) and a button to search for POIs and emergency assistance nearby.
Find Menu: The Find Menu gives you many different ways to choose your destination or insert a waypoint in your current route. An on-screen keyboard appears to allow you to enter your destination from one of the following categories:
Note: You can select any type of destination search with or without the vehicle's parking brake engaged.
Route Calculation: The Clarion NX807 calculates your route based on your Vehicle Type, Route Method, and Avoidances.
My Route: "My Route" displays the route parameters and the calculated route in its full length on the map. You can also perform route-related actions such as editing or canceling your route, setting a start point for the route, picking route alternatives, avoiding parts of the route, simulating navigation or adding the destination to your Favorites.
Modifying A Route + Auto Route Recalculation: When navigation is already started, there are several ways to modify the active route. You can edit the route by modifying the list of destinations and waypoints. You can add or remove destinations (waypoints), modify the start position or reorder the list. You'll be able to create a brand new route, add intermediate destinations (waypoints), and modify the final destination. Or, you can simply cancel your active route. The unit will also automatically recalculate your route if you stray from the navigation unit's previously calculated route.
Trip Monitor: The Trip Monitor contains useful information about your trip. This information can be saved manually when you reach your destination or automatically along your route. Trip log data includes; Start/End Time, Avg./Max. Speed, Total/Driving/Stopped Time, Total Distance, and Min./Max. Altitude.
Quick Menu: The Quick Menu is a selection of controls and functions that are frequently needed during navigation. It can be opened directly from the Map screen by tapping Quick Menu icon. You can customize which controls and functions are accessible through the Quick Menu.
Bluetooth 4.0: The Clarion NX807 is equipped with built-in Bluetooth 4.0, allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Clarion NX807. Visit Clarion Bluetooth Support for complete list of compatible phones and players.
SPP (Secure Simple Pairing): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the Clarion NX807 without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. Once a device is paired, the registered Bluetooth device will automatically connect to the receiver when it is in close proximity (up to 30') to the receiver. You can register up to five Bluetooth-enabled devices with the Clarion head unit, but only one paired phone can be used at a time.
Hands-Free Communication (w/ External Mic): The NX807 supports Bluetooth hands-free communication from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone (such as your iPhone or Android smartphone). The NX807 can be set to automatically answer your incoming calls and mute any music audio to your vehicle's speakers so you can instantly carry on a phone conversation hands-free. An external microphone carries on your side of the conversation while your car's speakers are used to hear the other person. You can make a call by entering the phone number, selecting a contact from your Phonebook list, or using the Call History Log of received/dialed/missed calls.
Note: This unit allows you to answer a call or dial out using any option without engaging the parking brake.
Wireless Audio Streaming: The Clarion NX807 can stream & control music from your Bluetooth A2DP/AVRCP mobile device (such as your iPhone or Android smartphone). You'll be able to stream stored music and music apps on your mobile device to the NX807 receiver. The unit offers basic playback functions (Play/Pause, FF/RW, Skip, & Random/Repeat) for stored music and music apps. In addition, the NX807 provides a Track List of the stored music on your Android smartphone (OS 4.0+) and even offers Playlist/Artist/Album/Song/Genre/etc. browsing for stored music on your iPod/iPhone (iOS 6.0+); as a result you can find your music much quicker. The head unit will also display your stored music and music app song/artist/album information.
Notes: When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.
Smartphone Mirroring via HDMI: The Clarion NX807's rear-panel HDMI input can be used to connect select MHL-enabled Android smartphones or Apple iPhones with Lightning connector for mirroring and audio/video playback through the navigation receiver. You can listen to stored music and music apps, as well a view stored video and video apps. The head unit's touchscreen will display (not always full-screen) the same screen which is displayed on your smartphone, but only when your vehicle's parking brake is engaged. Audio content can be heard without the parking brake engaged, but the unit will only display "Caution! Video is disabled for your safety". You cannot perform operation of the Android or Apple iOS device from the head unit's touchscreen; you will still need to use your mobile phone's touchscreen for operation. The following proprietary connector cables are required for Android or Apple iOS connectivity.
Note: Your vehicle's parking brake must be engaged for the head unit to display video from your smartphone device or "mirror" your smartphone device's screen. Control of your smartphone must still be done from your smartphone's touchscreen (not the head unit).
Apple CarPlay: The Clarion NX807 features Apple CarPlay, the smarter and safer way to use your iPhone in the car. The NX807 supports Apple CarPlay through your USB-connected iPhone (iOS 7.1+) with Lightning connector. Your iPhone can be connected to the Clarion head unit's rear-panel USB port labeled "iPod/iPhone" via a Lightning-to-USB cable. Apple CarPlay gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, listen to music, and access messages through Siri voice control and the Clarion receiver's touchscreen controls.
Note: Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Apple CarPlay is being used with a connected iPhone.
iPod/iPhone Music Playback: If you only desire music playback from your Apple iPod/iPhone with Lightning connector, you can simply connect your Lightning Apple device via a 1-wire USB connection using the cable that came with your Apple iPod/iPhone. Plug your Apple device into the head unit's rear-panel USB port labeled "iPod/iPhone". The NX807 will support stored music and music app playback, music browsing and playback control, song/artist information with album art, and charging.
Note: The NX807 is not compatible with 30-pin Apple devices.

Additional features of the SiriusXM Connect tuner include:
AM/FM Tuner: The Clarion NX807 is equipped with a built-in AM/FM tuner. The NX807 offers Seek, Manual, and Preset tuning. The NX807's built-in AM/FM tuner features 3 FM bands and 1 AM band. You can store up to 6 presets in each band, allowing you to store 18 FM and 6 AM preset stations. You can manually store your favorite presets or have the NX807 automatically store the strongest stations for you. The Preset Scan feature receives the stations stored in the units' preset memory in order and scans each station for 10 seconds sequentially; this function is useful when searching for the desired station in memory. When "Local" seeking is turned On, only those radio stations with strong radio signal can be received.
Disc Compatibility: The Clarion NX807's touchscreen monitor must be electronically lowered to access the disc slot. The NX807 supports playback of DVD-Video, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, CD-Audio, and CD-R/RW discs. The head unit supports a variety of audio/video files recorded onto DVD or CD.

Playback Operations: The Clarion NX807 offers the following playback & search functions for disc and USB.
24-bit D/A Converter: The unit's 24-bit D/A converter re-quantizes the 16-bit audio signals from CDs and DVDs as 24-bit data while maintaining the low distortion and high linearity of a 1-bit D/A converter. This allows an expanded dynamic range and clearer reproduction of subtle nuances, for a richer sound when viewing DVDs or listening to CDs.
MOSFET Amplifier: The Clarion NX807 is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.
Note: The power specifications for the NX807 are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.
6ch/2V RCA Outputs + Sub Level Control: With 3 sets of 2V RCA output (Front/Rear/Sub), you can add external power amplifiers to further enhance the NX807 system. In addition, independent volume control (0-14) and phase adjustment (normal/reverse) is enabled for the subwoofer output so you can adjust the level of bass to your liking at any time, regardless of the output level of the other channels.
Built-in Crossovers: The NX807's internal High Pass and Low Pass filters allow your music to be played at the precise levels that they were meant to be heard. Enjoy bass with more muscle and highs with more clarity.
15-Band EQ + 6 EQ Presets: You can choose between 6 EQ preset modes - Bass Boost, High Boost, Natural, Vocal, Impact or Flat. The NX807 also has a built-in 15-band equalizer that gives you the ability to sculpt sound to your taste even more. Its built-in EQ gives you superior control over the audio spectrum with frequency adjustments in the 25 Hz to 16 kHz range over 15 bands. This gives you the power to get the most out of your sound system, and the ability to contour the sound output to your musical taste. Make detailed adjustments with precision to create the perfect sound in your vehicle.
Magna Bass EX (Extend): The Magna Bass Extend feature does not adjust the low frequencies like the normal sound adjustment function, but emphasizes the deep bass frequencies to provide you with a dynamic sound. This circuit boosts bass at an ultra-low frequency of about 50Hz, creating a rich, deep, defined bass rather than the muddy, booming bass of a standard loudness control. What is more, boost levels are dependent on the system volume, resulting in balanced system response and dynamic bass reproduction.
Optical Digital Output: Thanks to the optical digital output, it is possible to use an optical cable (sold separately) to connect to external units such as Clarion's exclusive Full Digital Sound system or DSP devices (all sold separately) to upgrade your system to digital. Connecting the source unit to Full Digital Sound system enables you to cutting-edge high-quality full digital end-to-end sound. And since the output can be set to Fixed or Variable, you can maximize the volume of the source unit and adjust it at the processor, or finely adjust volume directly at the source unit
Source Level: Since the gain level can be pre-adjusted for each source separately, you won't have to fiddle with the volume knob each time you switch sources.
Beep Tone: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.
AV Inputs: The Clarion NX807 is equipped with composite video/stereo RCA AV input terminals on the rear of the unit to enable enjoyment of content from an external connected source.
HDMI/MHL Input: In addition to iPhone and Android connectivity, the head unit's HDMI/MHL input can be used to connect almost any external mobile AV source with an HDMI output; such as a TV tuner, Blu-ray player, or game system. The HDMI input will provide video and audio playback. Your vehicle's parking brake will need to be engaged to view video on the receiver's screen. Playback functions will need to be controlled from your HDMI-connected device.
Audio/Video Output (with Dual Zone): The NX807 features a rear-panel composite video/stereo RCA audio output that allows you to connect an external display and headphone system in the rear of your vehicle. You can playback audio/video content from a Disc, USB, or AV Input on a rear-seat monitor system; while viewing a different or the same audio/video source on the navigation receiver's touchscreen monitor. The head unit's HDMI input and CarPlay is not available in the second zone.
Camera Input: The Camera Input consists of a Composite video RCA jack for connecting an optional rear-view back-up camera (sold separately - see Accessories Tab). This RCA input enables you to connect a rear-view camera to display the area behind your vehicle. The increased view encourages and facilitates safer driving. When an optional rearview camera is connected to this unit, the rear view image is displayed on the screen when your vehicle is placed in reverse gear (purple/white wire of harness must be connected to reverse light wire of vehicle). Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.1 seconds.
Note: The rear view camera feature is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.

Simple design and operating system [ Justin Mar 22, 2017 ]
There is an included clarion harness that plugs into the the back of the head unit. That harness has a lot of different plugs on it but one plug is a 3.5 mm stereo type plug and is tagged "SWI". I plugged it in and it worked perfectly. Took me way to long to find that out since Clarion does not clearly list this in their owners manual. Hope this helps! [ Newt2112 Jan 15, 2019 ]

I haven't finished setting it up yet ( just started today). Can't get the backup camera to work. Will let you know if I get it all working. [ Barney Jan 02, 2019 ]
Yes, Carplay works with iOS 12. I have noticed a bug while using Pandora though (I use this app the most), it randomly jumps back to the main Pandora menu instead of staying on the channel that you're listening to. I only started doing this after upgrading to 12 and it does get a little irritating when it does it after every song or every other song. Everything else seams to work as it should. [ Stacy Dec 27, 2018 ]
Yes it does, I've had no problems using iOS 12 with this model [ KEVIN Dec 27, 2018 ]
It is working fine for me on iOS 12 . [ RICHARD Dec 27, 2018 ]

I can't answer that I'm waiting until after the holidays to install mine and mine is no fancy install [ Brad Dec 23, 2018 ]
you'll need to get the disc to upload the streets. My recently purchased unit included North America [ thomas Dec 20, 2018 ]
Hello, it's a great unit and easy to install. In your case, you would have to get the NX807E which comes with the European map. Hope this answer your question. [ CARLOS Dec 17, 2018 ]
I'm not sure but I don't think so.i know clarion is sold in other countries. But I kinda think units sold here are preloaded with maps of the US. Best bet call clarion. I called them early in the morning and got right through [ Crafty one Dec 17, 2018 ]
I would not describe the NX807 cooling fan as loud. My Honda's climate control fan is much louder. [ Michael Nov 30, 2018 ]
Based on my experience with Clarion car audio, this unit is not very loud when compared to the NX604 that it replaced. I have no complaints with the fan noise of this unit. [ Stacy Nov 27, 2018 ]
No this unit is extremely quiet love every minute of itEnter an answer to this question. [ Richard Nov 26, 2018 ]
Even though I do not experience the previous model issue as well as I haven't experienced this product In hot summer, I notice fan runs all the time but not "loud" when engine or music is on. Will update if next summer comes and above is incorrect. [ noel-sakura Nov 26, 2018 ]
Zero noise from unit [ Scott Nov 26, 2018 ]
Yes it does... other then that it's fine [ Mike Nov 26, 2018 ]
