Summary: Pioneer AVIC-F500BT Navigation System with Digital Player and LCD I won't provide excruciating details on what this unit doesn't do. I spent enough time researching online for "all in one" GPS units that can do bluetooth hands free, iPod, and GPS.
Summary: I own several GPS systems. Garmin NUVI 660, TomTom 920, Magellan 3450, Pioneer AVIC-D3 (built in) and this. I wait til they get cheaper before I buy them. I just got this AVIC-F500 from Amazon. Its got a 5.8 inch screen, portable and as a GPS system probably better than the others.
Summary: Well, what can i say. What a superb device. I was very dubious about buying this as i had read some not so good reviews. I set it up in the states and could not get my ipod connected, no picture on video when ipod was connected. I brought it back to canada and set it up on my kitchen table.
Summary: This GPS has a great screen, easy to navigate, easy to use, but two VERY annoying issues in my opinion. It sometimes takes up to 5 seconds to start up. You will never just get in your car, turn it on, and start out.
Summary: I purchased this navigation back in 2010. The most attractive features were relatively reasonable price, bigger screens, nice design, HD quality and voicing, and most of all, it was the NAME BRAND.
Summary: I was a little wary to say the least when I ordered this unit, but upon receipt I was glad that I had taken the chance. The 5.8 inch display is bright and colorful and the IGo maping sofware is pretty much accurate in the Charlotte, NC area.
Summary: I've been using F500BT with a Pioneer AMP, backup camera, iPod for the last two years. Overall it's a nice unit - it is portable (you can take into a different car, but it's not meant to be operated off of battery.
Summary: I haven't driven much lately to fully tested this PNA. However, based on a few short local trips I can say this much: Pros: - Large 5.8" screen. - Price for a 5.8" screen and all the included hardware and accessories. - 12 millions POI.
Summary: I was the owner of two of these units, with the purchase of a replacment third. The unit was fantastic until......... Well first, The unit had real time traffic with auto-reroutes, gas prices, movie information, News headlines, etc. This was furnished by Microsoft.
Summary: I have used this GPS on 3 separate trips in the past month, and the only problem I have found is the volume is very low, and I have followed the makers directions, and it does not allow the sound to be "turned up" to a level I can hear while moving.
