ASA Electronics has released the highly anticipated JRV9000 to the RV market.
The multimedia navigation system features a large, 6.2-inch touchscreen with feature including Bluetooth, Sirius XM capabilities, HDMI/MHL input and extensive navigation options.
“Built for Class A and C motorhomes in the RV market, this system incorporates RV-specific functionality with multi camera embedded switching, programmable navigation by vehicle size, along with Canadian maps which usually require a separate purchase,” ASA Electronics RV Industry Manager Jennifer King said.
According to the release, the embedded switching eliminates those complicated controls used on other models. A typical RV backup system has three cameras, one for each side and one on the back.
When paired with traditional aftermarket navigation systems, an external switcher box needs to be installed into the RV’s wiring and requires the driver to use the existing knobs and mechanisms around the driver’s seat, such as the turn signal, to switch between the camera angles viewable on the screen. With the JRV9000, the switcher box is eliminated and a driver can easily toggle between camera angles via the highly responsive touch screen.
