Summary: This deck is worth every penny I paid for it. It is a little slow on startup, but makes up for that with the beautiful and easy to navigate interface. My friend has the Clarion NZ-409 (same as the NX-409) and the interface and features are plain and boring. You couldn't ask for more features on this unit with the built in Bluetooth, sleek design, voice commands, DVD playback, and Navigation.
Summary: I installed it myself and found it went in easily. There's a great online community for modifying this system as well. All the features advertised work great. I bought the separate ipod cable and the AVICs ipod interface is intuitive and simple.
Summary: This thing is great, fun and keeps getting better, being it's OS is Microsoft, i get to play with everything, changing the the font, adding buttons on the touch screen, etc etc. Oh and watching movies while driving is always exciting.
Ignore the Outdated Reviews - Unit is almost perfect

Summary: I was hesitant to buy this unit but after reading about the new 2.0 update my fears were eased a bit. I purchased this unit on Amazon and had Best Buy install it in my truck because I didn't trust myself to do the wiring. They did a professional job and the the F-900bt looks like it could be a factory unit. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase even though it's still not perfect. I'm sure Pioneer has future updates down the road that will make the unit even better.
Summary: I purchased this for our 2005 Honda Odyssey. Crutchfield did not have the mounting kit so I ordered it from another company. I also purchased the PAC SWI-PS for the steering wheel buttons. When I tried installing it myself I had an annoying hiss coming from the speakers. Also, the computer voice was very scratchy. I called Crutchfield and they sent me a noise filter.
Summary: The Pionner AVIC f900BT delivers. Installation is pretty straight forward and easy. The system does everything you expect and want. The only downside is the FN Tuner. While it functions well, it does not have scrolling text that some stations prodcast on traditional local stations. Aside from that everything is top notch! The updates to the Navigation system make this top notch! The GPS and the iPOD setup is nothing short of fantastic.
