    The ultra-cool-impact-everyone's-life stuff is good...

    ...but there also seemed to be products on show that will augment the lives of less fortunate people as well...

    ...technology r0cks

    Just got around to watching this.

    Any of you guys remember the model number of that double DIN JVC head unit?

    Can't find anything on the US or UK JVC sites

    Thanks

    EDIT: I've mailed JVC PR as there's nowt on the disk that's relevant.

    Thanks Nick

    Part of me doesn't want to know, because if it is enough of an upgrade from the AVX800 (and the DAB and BlueTooth devices are compatible) I probably won't be able to resist it

    Re: CES 2008: Nick knows innovation when he sees it!

    linky no worky

    EDIT:

    Googled the model number though, and I don't think I'll be upgrading. Here is the JVC press release JVC Mobile Reveals Strong AV Multimedia Line-up, Takes Home 2 CEA Innovations Awards

    Looks to be a US centric model, with HD and satellite radio functionality. The USB support is probably much better, it's a but rubbish in the AVX800 that I have (same goes for the SD reader). Doesn't say if the DAB module will be supported anyway.

    What I was looking for was GPS really. JVC do it with the KD-NX5000, but that's really expensive for what it is, and has a tiny screen, the 7" on this would be awesome.

    Looks like my pennies are safe

    Thanks for digging this up for me Nick, appreciate it.

    heehee

    looks like the MP3 handling is much better going by that little screen shot on the bottom right.

    In the AVX800, you just get file access as opposed to a library based on meta data. I bet that could be added to the AVX800 with a software update, but thats not going to happen.

    Re: CES 2008: Nick knows innovation when he sees it!

    hmmmm Thats odd if it is sold in the UK with HD and Satellite radio still in it. It doesn't make any sense, we dont have them over here, or in Europe i don't think.

    I'll wait and see what the stores say about it when it is available, but i'm not hankering after it yet
