Customize your ride with GVN 53, a remote GPS sensor that integrates with your vehicle’s audio/video entertainment system so you can hear turn-by-turn directions through your vehicle's stereo and view detailed street maps on your integrated video display. Similar to GVN 52, GVN 53 takes it up a notch with simultaneous output of RGB and composite video¹ and features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver for improved reception.
Navigate with Your Entertainment System
GVN 53 turns your vehicle's audio/video system into a powerful street navigator. Look up and route directly to specific addresses or points of interest — such as restaurants, hotels, gas stations, retail shops or ATMs — while viewing your exact location on detailed street maps. It even announces the name of exits and streets through your car's speakers so you never have to take your eyes off the road. Map graphics are shown on your system's integrated video display. GVN 53 comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator® NT map data, and its card slot makes it easy to plug in additional maps.
See our faq for more information on how to update your maps.
Add Traffic, Weather and Radio
With an optional XM antenna and a subscription to XM services, you can check the weather, move ahead of traffic and listen to SiriusXM Satellite Radio when you travel with GVN 53. It can also receive optional TMC traffic alerts (in select cities) when used with a compatible traffic receiver.
Operate with Ease
GVN 53 installs out-of-sight and is easy to use. Hide the GVN 53 under a car seat using the included mounting hardware, and operate it easily with the included wireless remote control. Use the remote to navigate the menu on your video display and make selections to find it and go.
Customize Your Video Settings
GVN 53 simultaneously outputs both NTSC composite video and RGB with the addition of a custom harness, so you can choose your video output. Its advanced video settings allow screen position to be adjusted for easy viewing from any angle.
Professional installation is recommended. Display quality will vary depending on the screen being used. For best results and to ensure customer satisfaction, we recommend testing GVN 53 with a specific display model before installing. RGB and composite video requires custom harness.
