Owner’s Manual
• For your safety, the driver should not watch any video sources and/or operate the controls while driving.
Please note that watching and operating any video sources while driving are prohibited by law in some
countries. Also, while driving, keep the volume to a level at which external sounds can be heard.
• When using the navigation system, follow the precautions listed below. After reading this manual,
be sure to keep it in a handy place (such as the glove box of your car).
• This navigation system should not be used to replace your own judgment. No itinerary suggested
by this navigation system should ever override any highway regulations, your own judgment, or a
knowledge of safe driving practices. Do not follow the navigation system’s suggested itinerary if it
would cause you to perform a dangerous or illegal act, place you in a dangerous situation, or take
you into an area you consider unsafe.
• The advice provided by the navigation system is to be regarded as a suggestion only. There
may be times when the navigation system displays the vehicle’s location incorrectly, fails to
suggest the shortest route, or fails to direct you to your desired destination. In such instances, rely
on your own driving judgment, taking into account the driving conditions at the time.
• Do not use the navigation system to locate emergency services. The database does not contain a
complete listing of emergency services such as police stations, fire halls, hospitals and walk-in
clinics. Please show discretion and ask for directions in such instances.
• As the driver, you alone are responsible for your driving safety.
• In order to avoid a traffic accident, do not operate the system while driving.
• In order to avoid a traffic accident, operate the system only when the vehicle is stopped at a safe
place and the parking brake is on.
• In order to avoid a traffic accident or traffic offense, remember that actual road conditions and
traffic regulations take precedence over the information contained on the navigation system.
• The software may contain inaccurate or incomplete information due to the passage of time,
changing circumstances, and the sources of information used. Please respect current traffic
conditions and regulations at all times while driving.
• Where actual road conditions and highway regulations differ from the information contained on
the navigation system, abide by the highway regulations.
• Keep the amount of time spent viewing the screen while driving to a strict minimum.
• The navigation system does not provide, nor represent in any way information on: traffic and
highway regulations; technical aspects of the vehicle including weight, height, width, load and
speed limits; road conditions including grade, percentage of incline and surface conditions;
obstacles such as the height and width of bridges and tunnels; and other current driving or road
conditions. Always rely on your own judgment when driving a car, taking into account current
driving conditions.
• Do not disassemble or modify this unit. It may cause an accident, fire, or electric shock.
• Do not use this unit when a trouble exists, such as no screen content appears or no sound is
audible. It may cause an accident, fire, or electric shock. For that case, consult your authorized
dealer or a nearest Clarion service center.
• In case of a problem, such as foreign materials have entered in the unit, the unit gets wet, or
smoke or strange smells come out of the unit, etc., stop using this unit immediately, and consult
your authorized dealer or a nearest Clarion service center.
Using it in that condition may cause an accident, fire, or electric shock.
• Use a fuse with the same specification only when replacing the fuse.
Using a fuse with a different specification may causes a fire.
• For the installation of this unit or a change in the installation, ask your authorized dealer or a
nearest Clarion service center for safety. Professional skills and experiences are required to do so.

4. CAUTIONS ON HANDLING
Operation Panel
Owner’s Manual
For a longer service life, be sure to read the following cautions.
• The operation panel will operate properly in a
temperature range of 0˚ to 60˚ C.
• Do not allow any liquids on the set from
drinks, umbrellas etc. Doing so may damage
the internal circuitry.
• Do not disassemble or modify the set in any
way. Doing so may result in damage.
• Subjecting the operation panel to shocks may
result in breakage, deformation or other
damage.
• If a problem should occur, have the set
inspected at your store of purchase.
• Do not insert objects or poke in the space
between the operation panel and the main
unit when the panel is tilted.
• The remote control unit may not work if the
remote control sensor is exposed to direct
sunlight.
• In extremely cold weather, the display
movement may slow down and the display
may darken, but this is not a malfunction. The
display will work normally when the
temperature increases.
• Small black and shiny spots inside the liquid
crystal panel are normal for LCD products.
Navigation System
• To prevent discharge of the car battery, use
this system with the engine of the vehicle
running as much as possible.
• The housing of this unit may become hot
because this unit has a high-speed CPU. Be
careful to handle the unit during navigating or
immediately after turning the power off.
• Turn off the power of the vehicle when
connecting or disconnecting wires. Doing this
while the power of the vehicle is turned on,
may cause a trouble or malfunction.
Note:
• When using this unit first time after
purchasing, or not used for long periods
of time, it might take about 5 to 15 minutes
until the current location is determined
using GPS. Moreover, even when using
it often, it may take about 2 to 3 minutes until
the current location is determined according
to the GPS measuring situation.
• When the route (path) cannot be calculated,
move desired destination to a nearby main
road and perform calculation again. It may
12
NX500/NZ500
be impossible to find a route in case the
car location is too close to the desired
destination.
• For vehicles equipped with an intelligent key,
do not bring the intelligent key close to the
unit of the navigation system. The navigation
system may not operate correctly.
• If an electrical equipment that generates
a strong electrical noise is used near this
unit, the screen may be disturbed and noise
may be generated. In this case, keep away
such an electrical equipment or refrain from
using it.
• Data saved to the flash memory may get lost
in case of a breakdown, malfunction, or other
trouble of this unit.
• Operation of the navigation system may be
limited to protect the unit if the temperature is
extremely high or low. In such a case, please
wait until temperature becomes normal again.
WARNING
Alkaline (CR) button batteries contain
Perchlorate.
Dispose of discharged batteries properly.
Cleaning
• Cleaning the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth and gently wipe off the dirt.
For tough dirt, apply some neutral detergent
diluted in water to a soft cloth, wipe off the dirt
gently, then wipe again with a dry cloth.
Do not use benzene, thinner, car cleaner, etc.,
as these substances may damage the cabinet
or cause the paint to peel. Also, leaving rubber
or plastic products in contact with the cabinet
for long periods of time may cause stains.
• Cleaning the liquid crystal panel
The liquid crystal panel tends to collect dust, so
wipe it off occasionally with a soft cloth. The
surface is easily scratched, so do not rub it with
hard objects.

Precautions when creating MP3 disc
• File extensions
1. Always add a file extension “.MP3” or “.mp3”
to an MP3 file, and “.WMA” or “.wma” to a
WMA file by using single byte letters. If you
add a file extension other than specified or
forget to add these file extension, the file
cannot be played. In addition, if you use
upper case and lower case letters (capital
and small letters) mixedly for file extensions,
normal play may not be possible.
2. Files other than MP3/WMA data cannot be
played.
Playing files with a format not supported will
be skipped, and the scan, random and
repeat playback mode may be canceled.

not supported: *.AAC, *.DLF, *.M3U, *.PLS,
MP3 PRO files, files with DRM, open session
discs.
28
NX500/NZ500
• Logical format (File system)
1. When writing an MP3/WMA file on a disc,
please select “ISO9660 level 1 or level 2
(without including expansion format)” as
the writing software format. Normal playback
may not be possible if the disc is recorded
on another format.
2. The folder name and file name can be
displayed as the title during MP3/WMA play
but the title must be within 31 single byte
alphabetical letters and numerals for the
folder name and file name (including an
extension). Entering more letters or numerals
than specified may cause an incorrect
display.
• Entering File and Folder Names
Names using the code list characters are the
only file names and folder names that can be
entered and displayed. Using any other
character will cause the file and folder names
to be displayed incorrectly.
• Electronic Shock Protection
10 seconds for CD-DA (CDA)
45 seconds for MP3 recorded at 44.1 kHz,
128kbps
90 seconds for WMA recorded at 44.1 kHz,
128kbps
• Folder structure
1. A disc with a folder having more than 8
hierarchical levels will conflict with the
ISO9660 and playback will be impossible.
• Number of files or folders
1. The maximum allowable number of folders is
200 (including root directory); the maximum
allowable number of files is 1500 (max. 1500
per folder). This represents the maximum
number of tracks that can be played back.
2. Tracks are played in the order that they were
recorded onto a disc. (Tracks might not
always be played in the order displayed on
the PC).
• Some noise may occur depending on the
type of encoder software used while
recording.
• In case of a track recorded at VBR (variable
bit rate), the display for the play time of the
track may be slightly different from the
actual play time. Also, the recommended
value of VBR ranges from 32 kbps to
320 kbps.
• After disc selection, the play mode is

which they are expected to be played may not
match the order in which they are actually
played.
You may be able to set the order in which
MP3/WMA files are to be played by assigning
file names beginning with play sequence

Navigation System Operations
English
Introduction to Navigation Software
Owner’s Manual
Navigation software provides turn-by-turn
visual and voice assistance to direct you to
selected destination. The software quickly
calculates step-by-step directions to any
destination available on the included
navigation map. The navigation software uses
Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites, and
a digital roadway map database to calculate
and display travel directions. The system’s GPS
antenna receives signals from a constellation
of 24 satellites orbiting the earth and uses the
strongest of signals, to determine your position
to within meters.
Vehicle Position
The navigation software’s computer considers
vehicle speed and heading changes, together
with longitude and latitude information, to
accurately determine vehicle heading and
position on a digital map. Signals from GPS
satellites are used to determine the vehicle
location. Three (good) or four (best) satellites
must be received to accurately determine
location. The GPS reception status is indicated
by the GPS symbol on the map.
Map and Information Database
The map database used by navigation software
was created using high-resolution aerial and
land based data collection. Car navigation maps
are frequently updated. While the database was
judged to be as accurate as possible at the
time of its release, a map database can never
be 100% accurate. Road information that is
maintained in the map databases, such as turn
restrictions or road names may change over
time.

4. Cautions on Installation
English
Owner’s Manual
1. Prepare all articles necessary for
installing the source unit before starting.
2. This model features an operation panel
that slides forward.
On some types of cars, the operation
panel may make contact with the
dashboard or gearshift lever, in which
cause it cannot be installed. Before
installing, check that the unit will not
hamper operation of the gearshift lever
or obstruct your view before selecting
the installation location. (Figure 2)
4. If you have to do any work on the car
body, such as drilling holes, consult
your car dealer before hand.
5. Use the enclosed screws for
installation. Using other screws can
cause damage. (Figure 4)

6. Cautions on Wiring
Owner’s Manual
1. Be sure to turn the power off before wiring.
2. Be particularly careful where you route the wires.
Keep them well away from the engine, and
exhaust pipe, etc. Heat may damage the wires.
3. If the fuse should blow, check to see if the
wiring is correct.
If a fuse is blown, replace it with a new one of
the same amperage rating as the original (15A FUSE).
4. To replace the fuse, remove the old fuse on the back
of the unit and insert the new one. (Figure 8)
NOTE:
There are various types of fuse holder. Do not let the battery
side touch other metal parts.
