Indianapolis — The RCA NaviLight series of universal remote controls is designed to eliminate fumbling for the right button by lighting up only the commands for the component a user selects.
The NaviLight models use bright green backlighting to illuminate the functions for specific products. The remotes' features include sleep timer, advanced volume and transport keys punch-through, as well as dedicated navigation keys for menu and program guide support.
Models include the RCR860 (suggested retail $29), which provides controls for eight components; RCR660 (suggested retail $24), which controls up to six components; and the RCR460 (suggested retail $14) four-device model.
The eight-device RCR860 provides access to most brands of satellite and cable boxes, VCRs, DVD players, TVs, DVRs, sound systems and includes two auxiliary buttons for controlling an additional two devices such as a VCR, DVD or additional TV. The six-device RCR660 controls TVs, satellite/cable boxes, DVD players, VCRs, audio systems and an auxiliary device, and the four-device RCA460 controls the TV, DVD player, VCR/auxiliary and satellite/cable box. All remotes are currently available.
