I installed this in a car recently, and while its easy to be impressed with with what Pioneer has done in terms of interface, and look, the things they left out and what they want to charge extra for leave you scratching your head.

First of all, the screen is tremendous. It looks beautiful, it has nice touches, even to the point that when you turn your lights on, not only does the map turn dark, it puts stars in the sky of the map in 3-D view. As someone else previously mentioned, the iPod interface is superior. Just spectacular in terms of presentation, and ability to choose songs, artists, playlists, etc.

The functionality of the UI is rich and deep. The core of it was clearly designed by experts. But the details of this unit really let you down. Everything beyond base functionality is an option and a costly one at that. For example, HD Radio is an almost $100 dollar option. iPod? Yep, they deliberately crippled the unit so you need to pay $50 for a special cable (maddeningly, the iPod can be controlled with a generic ipod Cable, but no sound comes out unless you spring for the cable). Traffic information? Yep, you guessed it, another expensive option. This is not an inexpensive unit, most of this should be built in for the price.

The Bluetooth pairing process is the most unintuitive I've seen in any piece of electronics. But my biggest complaint is that for some reason, if you are moving, much of the options, including the ability to input a new destination disappear.

My CD/DVD player does not work anymore. Too bad for me I rarely use it and decided in April to start using my stash of DVD-Audio Discs. Turns out that the DVD player is not working, Called Pioneer-They will charge $230 flat fee, does not matter if the parts are less expensive than that or more, it is a flat fee. I decided to check it out at a local reputed repair shop and they said $325 with main board electronics and hardware problematic. Did not come to expect this of a Pioneer product. Its too much to spend on a device that is now selling for ~650.

I had this installed in my 2011 Subaru WRX a week ago and have great things to say about it. There are endless good things about this nav unit. However, here is how I break it down.

1.One of the best ones is the mat finish display that does not hinder with the sun's glare.
2.The customizable home screen shortcuts is awesome and gives you a smartphone feel to you.
3.iPod interface and song/artist/album/album art display is brilliant. It is quite pleasing to the eye and readily readable.
4. Navigation has newest graphics and a host of information on the screen (also a borderline negative coz it is too many options on screen that can be turned off too).
5. POI search is not the most intuitive coming from an Acura owner, but one can get used to it.
6. Contacts syncing from your Bluetooth connected phone every time it is paired is a great feature, the contact list updated in the pioneer memory from any changes made on the phone.
7. A2DP profile for streaming Bluetooth music works well too, but with my BB it take a few steps, I have not tried with another phone.
8. I also tried to play music from the micro sd card which is a nice touch and plays well.

It's an amazing deck hands down! I had the older unit avic-f900bt this one, one-ups that one its a really amazing deck w/ a really nice interface. My wife isin't too tech saavy and she picked it up pretty fast. Pioneer always has great sound quality so that goes w/o saying. Also I like that they extended the usb cord its really long, I have it ran in my glove box where the ipod hookup is. The bluetooth works seamless w/ my iphone4 pairs up and plays audio and makes calls perfectly. This is hands down the best navigation unit i've owned. I posted pitcures up on the review above

I had a previous model (Avic-D3, I think) years ago and remembered really liking it. What I forgot is that since I now have Google Maps and Navigation on my phone, It's not the same. Don't misunderstand, it's great having the in-dash map and GPS always on, so you don't have to wait for a signal on your phone and you ALWAYS know where you are when travelling, but the map is so very basic and it's hard to get to the right vantage point when you are following directions and want a better sense for where you are going and relative distance. There is no Satellite view, which I'm spoiled about with Google. I also use the Bluetooth for my phone and music to stream from Amazon Cloud player. The phone syncs very easily, the music is a hassle if the Bluetooth was turned on when the Nav unit boots. Bottom line, great to have for map and GPS, but don't pay too much because the Directions aren't so hot. It's not really better than the unit I owned years ago, which means Pioneer needs to up their game. Oh, also, if you buy a used unit, it is password protected and if you don't have the password, you have to ship it to Pioneer and pay $80 to have it reset, plus shipping. :(
