Stunning graphics, superior performance
Eclipse pulls out all the stops with the AVN726E navigation receiver, giving you detailed maps, top-of-the-line image quality, and high-end sound in an elegant package. Its wide range of navigation and entertainment options make it perfect for building a multimedia A/V system in your vehicle. Plus, built-in Bluetooth® lets you make hands-free calls for safer driving.
The big 7" monitor gives you the ability to enter commands with just a touch of the screen and makes it easy to view movies, navigation screens, and menus. Eclipse uses advanced digital image processing technology to give you vivid, detailed images.
Awesome navigation capabilities
The AVN726E features flash-based navigation that gives you instant response to touchscreen commands like zooming and scrolling, and you can use the handy SD™ card slot to keep your maps up-to-date. In major cities, the navigator guides you with detailed views of streets, buildings, and recognizable landmarks. With access to over 16 million points of interest, you'll always find interesting spots for dining and recreation, even in unfamiliar territory.
You can also add a SIRIUS Traffic receiver for real-time traffic data that keeps you up to date on accidents, traffic flow and congestion, and road closings in most major metropolitan areas.
Movies and music
Play movies up front while you're parked, or connect a screen in the back so your passengers can watch while you're on the road. Eclipse maintains a digital data transfer between your source and the screen, so no analog noise and image smear are present giving you outstanding color depth and improved contrast for a crisp, detailed image.
Play your iPod® by connecting it to the AVN726E's rear USB slot no adapter necessary, but adding Eclipse's optional cable lets you view your videos and leave your other cable at home. Another plus the receiver bypasses your iPod's built-in digital-to-analog converter, using its own DAC to deliver much better sound quality. You can also load up a disc or a thumb drive with MP3 and WMA files to take care of the tunes on your next road trip.
Add Eclipse's optional satellite radio or HD Radio® tuner for the best radio entertainment around. Three sets of 5-volt preamp outputs send a clean signal to the external amplifiers you use to drive your speakers and subs. Connect an Eclipse rear-view camera to get a clear view when you back up.
