Packed with useful features to assist in navigation, the Planet Audio PNV9674RC is with you from door to door, ensuring a smooth and efficient journey. On top of that, there are enough entertainment features to keep you happy from start to finish.

First off, a quick look at the hardware. The screen is average size, which is a shame given how powerful some of the features are. But it’s no great loss, as it’s easily large enough to be completely user friendly. You have the choice of using the responsive touch screen, or for certain apps you can take advantage of voice recognition software, in conjunction with Bluetooth, to ensure you never have to take your hands from the wheel. There’s a good selection of inputs on offer, including USB, audio inputs and SD cards. Plus, if you have a rear view camera, you can fit it up to the Planet Audio PNV9674RC for an increased range of vision when driving and parking. And there’s also a great hands free feature that allows you to control all inputs while keeping your hands on the wheel. It’s a good sign when companies show that they’re concerned for safety, and this one definitely ticks the box.

As for audio inputs, Planet Audio PNV9674RC can handle pretty much anything you care to throw at it. Inputs can take a variety of digital media, and there’s also a built in tuner that allows you to listen to radio in high definition. But for our money, one of the best things about the PNV9674RC is the fact that it comes ready loaded with maps for the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Some people out there don’t want to have to spend time searching, updating and downloading before they can make the most of their new satnav. The PNV9674RC is perfect if you’re one of those people. And at a low, affordable price, it’s ideal if you’re looking for a car stereo/satnav for an upcoming trip, but aren’t inclined to spend ages getting to grips with new software.
