Replacement for Clarion NX405

I'm fed up with this piece of garbage. The touch screen sensitivity is so bad, it is a traffic hazard and should be outlawed.

Has anyone found a replacement that fits in the dash of a 2016 DS.

If not, I might just get the Garmin 770 for NAV and get a decent radio to replace the Clarion POS.

I have the same issue. The touch sensitivity seems off and then it seems to get stuck.

Same here. Useless and hazardous for the driver. My wife has to sit on the floor trying to get a radio station.

I have an NX605 in my LA. Theres a few 'small' thing's I'm not exactly crazy about, but other than that, I'm happy with it. Not sure what the differences are between the NX405 and NX605, but...just my 2 cents.

Maybe try googling a replacement for that unit and see if theres any replacements or cross references...? You never know.

Good luck in your search.

Had the 405 last year and I agree. This year I have the xite radio gps and it is super. Obviously fits the same hole. It’s the X2S model. Rand McNally and we no longer use the Garmin as backup, they agree 100%. No more touch problems and much more intuitive. Easy map update on the sds card. Maybe there’s a demo online?

Video wouldn’t play on my iPad but those are the people I’m talking to. Bluetooth works great can’t get it to see a hotspot for the WiFi yet. I see that it’s optional they’re not sure if Newmar included it. I can guess. ��

I tried getting more info on XITE SOLUTIONS X2S, but all references stop at 2015.tried emailing, and got a message the web site does not exist? Are they still in business? Wanted to find out price in installation locations?
