Summary: For a unit with a 250+ page user's manual you would expect something that is both sophisticated and ultimately, USER FRIENDLY! This is neither - the worse part is that it literally makes driving UNSAFE by forcing people to pull over, put that car in park, put the parking brake on, just to access the...
Summary: I liked my Honda factory navigation, so I bought the Pioneer AVIC-N2 for my BMW. Since I could not found a demonstration unit, I bought it based on reviews and thought most of the navigation system will be similar. Now that it is installed, I quickly realized that it is a terrible navigation system.
Truly the current pinnacle of Mobile Navi-tainment!

Summary: I purchased this item a few days ago and installed it myself. Let me start with a whole-hearted I LOVE IT! Ok, details. The Installation I am not new to car stereo installs, and I thought this install was pretty easy, if longer than most.
Summary: I waited a while before submitting a review to give this unit a good try. I already had a portable unit (Garmin) but wanted an in-dash unit for my other car. At the time this unit was twice as much as the Garmin but it also played dvds.
Summary: I love this unit. Its awesome in every way possible. the navigation is super the quality of the dvd player is good and is sounds good for cd play. I still have to figure out the sounds curves but it a real good unit. i need to find a second unit for my Tahoe
Summary: I was so excited to get Nav/DVD in our new SUV. However, I hate this unit! You can't watch DVDs unless the car is in park. The whole point was for me to watch movies in the passenger seat while my husband drove. Also, you have to put in a Navigation CD everytime you want to look for a new address.
Summary: For all those that complain about not being able to watch dvds or put in an address while driving, you can with a trick. Type "solder avic n2" in google and you'll figure it out. Keep in mind they did this because it is illegal in the U.S. to watch dvds while driving.
Summary: Save your money. I invested over 2K to purchase and have this unit installed. After about a year the screen would go blank, but the lights on the face plate would flash. It would come back on after a minute or 2, but I would usually have to take the disc out or do something else.
