The user interface took a little getting used to, but overall, pretty intuitive.
Paul K
What I find really impressive is that it corrects itself quickly if you take a wrong turn and it does not take a long time to plan a route when starting off at first.
It's very easy to connect a Bluetooth device to talk on the phone or to listen to music.

I just got this (in my opinion) great in dash nav dvd AVIC X940BT this weekend. I have spent two days fooling around with it and I must say I am happy with my purchase. I still have some more tinkering to do to completely work out a full understanding of the unit so I may not touch on some aspects in this review. I will start with the GPS.

GPS: I had a tom tom mounted on my windshield that would slip and fall whenever it got cold. It also needed to get charged after about 2-3 hrs unplugged and working. Plus, the mount is always a thief attraction so I started looking into in dash units (which are also thief attractions (lol)). The AVIC X940BT maps are made by NAVTEQ. This is a reputable mapping company (I believe they map for Garmin and nextar). Not only are the maps updated when installed but the voice commands are super. It tells you what lanes to get on and when exactly to turn. Turns are emphasized with an extra beep/bell at the instance you should turn. Written above the map is the street you are turning into and written below is the street or road you are presently driving on. It does not mention the street name in voice turn by turn (but ask yourself how often you understand SAMANTHA on the Tom Tom device when she mentions street or bridge names?). It has a route planning option as well as a route learning option so it can learn your preferred routes. I am yet to fully test the route learning option. It provides multiple routes when possible for your entered destination. You can avoid toll roads, use local roads, use highways etc. What I find really impressive is that it corrects itself quickly if you take a wrong turn and it does not take a long time to plan a route when starting off at first. I think this has to do with where the signal is mounted.

This is the first aftermarket stereo i've bought in many years and I must say that i'm completely blown away at how far technology has advanced with car stereos during that time.
I have an android phone and wanted something that would interface with that and so the X940 seemed like a great choice based on price and other reviews i've read. I'm very happy with the X940

The main reason I chose this unit over Pioneers more expensive Z140 is because I do like to have a volume control knob and I didn't want a motorized faceplate that had to move out of the way every time I needed to insert a CD or DVD. I've learned over the years that the less moving mechanical parts any machine has, the longer it will last. Electronics will usually last forever, but motorized parts are usually the first to fail. Also, I didn't need the HD radio that comes with the Z140 either. I find that normal radio serves me well.

Now back to the X940. First off, I think it's really sad that such an expensive and complicated stereo doesn't come with a paper manual. The manual is on a CD in .pdf format,which is pain to try and navigate around when your trying to learn the system. The first thing I did was print out the entire manual(220+pages) and put it in a binder so that I could skip back and forth when learning about this unit. And of course you can do this while your using the unit, which makes learning it a lot faster. This is the only negative thing I can say about this unit.

The positives are many. The sound is exceptional. Even through factory speakers with no amp, it completely lifted the sound quality to another level. There are built in equalizers and bass boosts and loudness controls to further refine your listening experience.

The navigation unit is fantastic.

Verified Purchase
I recieved and installed my Pioneer Avic X940BT without much difficulty in my 2004 Mercury Mountaineer with the Metra 95-5026 Double DIN Installation Kit to mount the radio. I used the Metra 70-1771 Radio Wiring Harness to keep from cutting out the OEM radio plug, and the Metra Axxess ASWC Universal Steering Wheel Control Interface to utilize the steering wheel radio controls. I added the Boyo VTL425 Ultra Slim Black Bar "back-up camera" with some extra effort.
The touch screen works great (I have some difficulty with touch screens due to my big fingers), the GPS nav works well (I saved all of my favorite locations in the unit for instant touch and go navagation), gread video quality (and although I don't have them, you can tie your headrest monitors into the unit), and I loaded all of my favorite music on a miniSD card and plugged it into the system- At the touch of a button, I can play my entire jazz collection without having to change a cd (my only complaint is it is just more music than I have the drive time for). What haven't I mentioned yet??... the bluetooth - hands free calling- expandable for HD radio, satellite, and more (more than I'll use anytime soon).
I worked installing police car lighting and electronics, so for me the installation was probably easier than some might think it is. But with some basic knowelege, and paitence, and the proper installation tools and hardware, anyone can install one of these systems in their vehicle.
Bear in mind that I have only had the unit for a very short time, but I am very pleased with it for the time I have had it. And some might think it is too complicated to operate- but the basic operations are on an easy to read menu selection.
