Summary: I bought this about 4 or 5 years ago. I'm going to list the CONS against it that I haven't seen in the reviews yet. 1) Address book for GPS is very limited. You can only have about 20 addresses or so. That may not be an issue for some folks but after 5 years if I want to add a new restaurant or location, I have to delete something to make room. 2) The maps have not been updated in 5 years!
Summary: Like it so far seems to work great! Im just learning most of it and it seams pretty easy to use the navigation hook up isn't done for the speed sensor but they say it works more accurately with it hooked but being second hand I didn't get the wires for that so I still need to get some wire and hook that and the reverse sensor wire up also but other than that I like it.
Summary: DO NOT BUY!!!! DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT I have owned this unit now for over 2 years and it has spent more time in the factory being fixed than it has been installed in my truck. The first time it broke i have no idea what happened. I sent my vehicle to get the oil changed and when i got my truck back the radio would only display the Pioneer start up screen then instantly turn off. I called Pioneer and they have the worst system in the world to fix it.
Summary: This item listing claims it is a "detailed" guide however, it only has 3 steps for 1/2 page plus only one picture not "pictures" as the description claims. You can obtain more information on the web for free. This product is not worth paying any money.
Summary: This has everything you would expect from an aftermarket headunit- Bluetooth, voice dial/ command, DVD, Navigation, XM, MP3, Ipod, backup camera, and more! The reason I got this unit is because of the price and the fact you can "mod it". There is forum where you can install different themes or software versions very easily. I updated my unit within 20 minutes and a standard SD card. So I have the new maps, software, etc.
Summary: I read all the reviews that I could find about this receiver before I bought it. Most of the reviews would probably steer you away from the unit. I'm not sure where they are coming from. I think you have to consider the price before the expectations you have. I paid far less than the original retail price, and feel I got a lot for my money. As for all the bugs that the unit is supposed to have, mine is free of them. I only had to reset it once, just after the install.
Summary: My avic F90bt is a buggy piece of crap. When I first got it inMarch '08 it worked ok with the 2.0 firmware, only glitches here and there but nothing too big. I do a lot of roadtrip driving across the continent from Seattle to Ontario and back, or a 4,000 mile loop through the SW so the GPS and ability to insert my 16GB SD card for music was awesome. Then I made a huuuge mistake; I shelled out $120 for the 2009 map upgrade and upgrade to the 3.0 firmware.
Summary: I've had this since June 09. Like other have stated, it does take about 45 secs or so to boot on. For the first 20 secs you won't have any music then it will start playing whatever music you had playing when you cut it off last time. After 45secs or so you can then access the full menu. The Maps on this are from 2008 so you will encounter some roads that are missing or that it states are incorrect, you can update the maps but it will cost you about $100!!!.
