Nav tv vs. Lockpick in. 2013 JKU wiTh 730

Curious to hear what the differences are, anyone have recommendations?


Looking to add a back up camera and have passengers use the Nav while I drive. Thanks.

I have Lockpick... But I think NavTV is made in the USA.

I'm not sure if either is made in USA, but I have recently purchased and installed NavTool on my 2103 manual tranny, added camera and video in motion functionality

love it, works great and 100% made in USA

I don't care about video, but I would love to be able to use all the functionality of my Nav system while in motion.

I have the NavTV Allgig and it was easy to install and works great. I have noticed some bugs though.... It will allow you to use the Nav while in motion, however only if it's not currently in use... For example, if you are driving without using it, then it works great, but if you are already navigating somewhere and want to search for something along your route, it will not let you access the keyboard to type the name of a restaurant or whatever.. I found that a little frustrating...

I've researched every brand and found only NavTool to be made in USA

Finally just went with Nav TV because I can buy it online with Amazon - Free Shipping - Good Return Policy. My dealer said they would install it for me.

How'd you find it on Amazon? I'm coming up blank when I search for it.

Search "ALLGIG_XG-HS" on Google.

Currently shows unavailable on Amazon,

Searching this on amazon yields no hits, probably because it's not available.

Not really sure which one works better.

I like my Lockpick V.5 a lot. It has been great with my 430RBZ. I do know some people have had issues with their 430N's and Lockpick. Something about directions being backwards.

I've never tried NavTV or NavTool.
