Eclipse AVN5510

The Good The Eclipse AVN5510 combines a great navigation system with a user-friendly digital audio interface and crisp video playback.

The Bad The system offers no support for XM Satellite Radio or DVD Audio, and its touch screen video playback programming is a bit goofy.

The Bottom Line The Eclipse AVN5510 is a good all-in-one in-car product. Its broad range of audio and video customization features and its superb navigation interface make a very attractive proposition for those who can live without real-time traffic.

Eclipse AVN5510

As the newest entry-level DVD-based navigation and multimedia in-car system from Eclipse, the AVN5510 has many of the same features that we liked in the AVN5500/ AVN6600 series, with some significant improvements in terms of design and features.

Design
The AVN5510 has an elegant faceplate design that is far less cluttered and confusing than that of the previous-generation models. Instead of the rows of buttons on three sides of the bezel that we disliked on the AVN6600, the AVN5510 has just one single row of hard buttons along the bottom of the unit, which includes an Eject button, a Mute button, and a volume control rocker switch.
