Buggiest computerized device I've ever owned.

Doug Payne, Amazon
9 November 2010
  • Summary: On a good day this thing barely functions. Touch-screen requires multiple touches and unit freezes constantly. One becomes very, very familiar with the reset button. I bought the 3.0 upgrade cards thinking that might improve things, but now it crashes more often and hardly anything works.

Beware

Mark G. Millman, Amazon
2 March 2009
  • Summary: BEWARE! I have been anticipating to receive this unit, as I had a Pioneer in-dash unit in my previous vehicle. When I received the unit, it was well packaged. I followed the instructions and fully charged the unit before use. I set it up the way I was suppose to.

Pioneer AVIC-F500BT

B. S. Morton, Amazon
30 May 2010
  • Summary: I bought this and had it fitted professionally. The features seemed good although I don't use it to dock an i-Pod. I wish I hadn't spent the money. 1 I have found it impossible to establish a connection either directly to the PC via the USB cable or using an SD card as an interface.

This would be an excellent replacement Sat Nav if it had a selection of mounting alternatives

Peugeot_Driver, Dooyoo
11 March 2009
  • Excerpt: It might be a very good unit, pity it is let down by the after care service from Pioneer. I was after a replacement Sat Nav as the one fitted by Peugeot in my car is a bit dated but it is irreplaceable as it comes as a single unit which also controls the Radio, Air Con etc.
