Summary: THIS OVER PRICE UNIT DOES NOT WORK VERY. BLUETOOTH, SD CARD, AND USB TAKES TOO LONG TO READ THEM. SOME OF THE FILES CAN'T READ THEM AT ALL BUT MY OTHER STEREO DO READ THEM. ON SD CARD AND USB, YOU CAN NOT SKIP OR FORWARD . BLUETOOTH TAKES A FEW TRY TO SYNC THE DEVICE. ON RADIO, IT DOES NOT SHOW ARTIST OR SONG NAME.. IT THE SUN SHINE ON IT, YOU CAN'T SEE IT. NAVIGATION LIVE EVENT IS NOT ACCURATE. SOME OF THE FEATURES DO NOT EXPLAIN HOW IT WORK. WHY ???????????????
Summary: one year of use. I want to take it out my car lol Very slow boot time ( takes a while to come up) touch screen is ok, resolution is good. Sound quality is also very good only pairs to one device at a time to the bluetooth.
Summary: Do not purchase this item it is the worst GPS navigation device on this planet. It doesn't show any of the streets ahead you and you have to pay for the updates. Other GPS devices update the maps for free.
Summary: The sound quality coming from this unit is what I would expect from Pioneer; very, very good. However, that is where the positives end. I have gotten the impression that Pioneer shouldn't be in the business of creating software user interfaces; they should just leave that to the professionals. Operation of the unit is not intuitive. A firmware update could remove the many flaws and make this expensive unit SO much better.
Summary: This receiver is awesome and sounds great. The navi display is sharp and mostly accurate. The voice recognition is hit or miss, and input of addresses is cumbersome at best. Best to use your Iphone for directions and use this as a reference.
Good audio but don't buy if you want a strong Nav or BlueToooth performer.

Summary: Pretty good unit for bringing my 2000 Suburban into the modern age. Pros: - Pandora, Aha radio and XM are well integrated and sound great. - The tuner is a vast improvement over the older Pioneer single din unit it replaced, with much better sound and reception. Cons: - GUI seems clunky and dated, but not a deal breaker. - Nav is not great, the Motion X GPS Drive on my phone is much better.
Summary: The basic functions of the unit are good. The voice recognition is poor. The stereo tuner is good. The low voltage outputs could be better at this price. Screen is nice and the operation system is fast. The Ipod integration is good but there are some issues. When using the tuner, my Ipod is always on and tends to lock up. This could be just an Ipod issue. Also, I can not access my play lists like you can on other units.
Summary: You will not be disappointed with the crazy HAL 2000 abilities of this unit. My biggest issues with this unit is the lack of a true dimming option. Who doesn't want to bask in the glory of the dash board light but this thing is freaking crazy bright. Then there is the voice control or lack there of. You will just find yourself screaming at your radio in a vain attempt to communicate your wishes as the unit just smugly ignores you.
Summary: Have owned this unit for about 10 months now and most is very good, but the navigation is just the worst. A labratory Monkey with a map could get you to your destination better. The only saving grace on the navigation is it has a red line that goes to your destination, so you end up using that to get to where your going faster. Sirius radio is great, as well as the hands free phone. Just wish the navigation was alot better.
