AVIC-S1

FlyMike55, Amazon
13 July 2008
  • Summary: Snappy little item with lots of demonstrated potential, easy to use, and with just the right kind and amount of travel info displayed at all times without requiring accessing different page levels while enroute. A few quirks that future software updates should certainly take care of.

Very nice unit, no support.

John F, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very nice unit that works well. It even tracks satellites from the car deck of British Columbia coastal ferries! Having said that, it is a device which will have a short life. It is more than a year overdue for a map upgrade and there is still no sign, I ordered mine months ago.

  • Summary: Just bought the Pioneer Avic-S1 and absolutely love it. I looked at several othe portable GPS products and for the price you can't beat this. It worked right out of the box and knew my location. Easy to use and love the different views of your route.

Way behind competition

Jacek Jablonski, Amazon
13 July 2008
  • Summary: GPS navigation system suppose to navigate and position you on the map and/or route giving you maximum information possible about place you're on, surroundings and that information should be updated frequently. All other functions are useful additions, but secondary conveniences.

AVIC-S1

Navman, Amazon
13 July 2008
  • Summary: Negatives: - Very poor routing software. Takes you off the freeway onto local roads when the freeway would be much, much faster. Doesn't matter whether you have 'fastest route' or 'shortest route' selected. - No turn list.

So Simple a Cave-Man can operate, or an old guy

Bruce E. Shaffstall, Amazon
13 July 2008
  • Summary: The Pioneer AVIC-S1 GPS is an intuative, read easy to set up and use, GPS. Programming destinations is easy and the unit actually helps with spelling, by leaving out letters that it has no names for.
