    Customize your ride with GVN 53, a remote GPS sensor that integrates with your vehicle’s audio/video entertainment system so you can hear turn-by-turn directions through your vehicle's stereo and view detailed street maps on your integrated video display. GVN 53 takes it up a notch with simultaneous output of RGB and composite video (requires custom harness for RGB) and features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver for improved reception. GVN 53 announces the name of exits and streets through your car's speakers. Map graphics are shown on your system's integrated video display. GVN 53 comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator NT map data, and its card slot makes it easy to plug in additional map detail from optional MapSource mapping products.

    Xm Traffic, Weather and Radio
    With an optional XM antenna and a subscription to XM services, you can check the weather, move ahead of traffic and listen to XM radio when you travel with GVN 53. As an alternative, GVN 53 can receive optional TMC traffic alerts (in select cities) when used with a compatible traffic receiver.

    GVN 53 installs out-of-sight and is easy to use. Hide the GVN 53 under a car seat using the included mounting hardware, and operate it easily with the included wireless remote control. Use the remote to navigate the menu on your video display and make selections to find it and go.

    GVN 53 simultaneously outputs both NTSC composite video and RGB with the addition of a custom harness, so you can choose your video output. Its advanced video settings allow screen position to be adjusted for easy viewing from any angle.

    Professional installation is recommended.

    Display quality will vary depending on the screen being used.

    i used OVERNIGHT shipping and it was shipped the same day and arrived the next morning... i also purchased the 3 yr extended warranty from them...lets hope i dont need it... i installed the unit into a dodge challenger MyGig radio using a video input switcher from another vendor... it all worked flawlessly, and my customer was very happy with the results... Thanks so much to GPS4U for getting me the unit so quickly for my time-senstitive project. russ walker AutoMallAccessories Shreveport, La
