Clarion VZ400


$600.00 Released January, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Streams audio from a variety of portable devices via Bluetooth. Expandability options work as soon as they are plugged in, no elaborate configuration required. Built-in Bluetooth microphone needs no configuration, filters noise well.

The Cons:Volume control problems after a call is received - tends to boost volume of the radio to the level of the call. Screen construction is loose, doesn't sit firmly in place, moves when touchpad is used. Lower power output just adequate for OEM speakers, completely inadequate for enthusiasts without an amplifier.

The Clarion VZ400 is a high end audio and video receiver for your dash. It features a 7 inch LCD touchpanel display that runs a full graphical user interface (GUI). Bluetooth connections with your cellphone are possible, and you can augment the system with a direct connection to the NP400 GPS (sold separately).
