Great Customer service

NasrinB, Amazon

  • Summary: This GPS is not sensitive to touch and one has to keep pushing for any interaction. The menu interface is not user friendly either. But the customer service was excellent.

Get F700BT Instead if you have room and $$

SweetHubby, Amazon
5 June 2009
  • Summary: First of all, Do you really have room on your dash that would easily fit 7.25" wide unit without Blocking your view? If you say YES, then you can take another step. I don;t really have room that big but I dont have $500 to get F700BT, but now I think I just Lost $200. Pre-Amp output is ridiculously LOW. Signal Booster is $40. I have this Animation Equalizer in my car and with the Volume all the way up on the GPS unit, Bars rarely jump.

Gorgeous PNA but not quite as expected.

Tuan Do, Amazon
26 April 2009
  • 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. - Dialing the POI phone with a touch of a button Cons: - Expensive replacements parts.

Good product but need improvements

J. Nunes "Indyking", Amazon
19 February 2009
  • Summary: There is already a very good and more detailed review written here by Ming Chan, which I agree with all aspects, but would like to add some extra information not addressed. I was in the market for a product to replace my old garmin (nuvi 750) and ultimately narrowed it down to the nuvi 780 and this pioneer product (AVIC F500BT).

Good but not perfect

Mr. Colin Young, Amazon
26 October 2012
  • Summary: I have had this units big brother,the Avic 900 for 4 years fitted in my motorhome.The abilty to make modifications to these F series units(See Avic411.com!)has resulted in saving a fortune on map updates etc.I bought the 500 for use in my Golf and it is working fine.Major negative is battery life from the self contained re chargeable battery.If it lasts 10 minutes you are lucky.Requires the harness to be permanantly wired in to enable TMC to work.Really large screen...
