 Garmin GPS Navigation System -  DNX models offer the world's leading GPS navigation system by Garmin with preloaded NAVTEQ® map data of the United States and Canada, including Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Choose from different intuitive map view options including split-screen AV control.
Lane Assist - The Lane Assist function guides you to the appropriate lane to be in for upcoming junctions and interchanges facilitating a safer navigation experience.
 Split Screen AV Control - The screen views, which can be easily toggled from one to another simply by touching the screen or appropriate button, can be changed to best suit specific needs.  For instance, Split Screen AV Control divides the screen into two with navigation on the left and a control window on the right with Picture-in-Picture displays the navigation and source screens simultaneously.
USB Connectivity for iPhone and iPod - All DNX models feature USB connectivty for audio/video playback from popular devices like iPhone and iPod when used with optional accessory cable.  Featuring an advanced graphic user interface, iPod browsing is done easily using Slide Touch to browse by album art, video titles, photographs, etc. from an iPhone or iPod. For added versatility, iPod control by Hand disables the receiver's integrated control, enabling passengers to control the iPod manually including some selected Apps.  The same USB connectivity allows users to connect USB thumb drives and external hard disk drives.
Pandora Connectivity - Pandora is an internet radio service that allows you to create radio stations based upon favorite artists and songs.  In short Pandora analyzes a song or artist using up to 400 distinct musical characteristics and then recommends songs and artists based upon your personal likes.  If the Pandora App is on your iPhone, simply connect to the DNX to enable touch-panel control of your personal Pandora stations.
