i wish eBay has (very poor) rating, i'll voted for this

dputrow, Ebay
4 January 2008
  • Summary: the only i like from this GPS is because i got it cheap (used for around $ 150) the bluetooth works great with my Nokia 6133, speaker loud and microphone (seems) good enough.. BUT THE MAIN FUNCTION - GPS - CRAPP!! YOU NEED TO SPEND EXTRA $ 15 TO UPDATE WITH LATEST MAP, OTHERWISE YOU WILL FOLLOW THE OLD ROAD - TAKES YOU LONGER TO GET TO THE DESTINATION.. BATTERY NEVER CHARGED GOOD, HAS TO PLUG TO THE LIGHTER ALL THE TIME..SUCTION CUP DIDN'T SUCK,MEANS REALLY S^CKS!!

AVIC-S1 a Disappointment

pappycst, epinions.com
25 October 2006
  • Summary: There are much better GPS devices available from Garmin and Magellan. I am very disappointed with the Pioneer software and their lack of interest in providing promised software updates.
  • Pros: Fairly easy to use and bought from Hooked On Phonics at a good price.
  • Cons: Very poor software that is not dependable. Promised software upgrade has not been provided.

Pioneer Avic S1 Sat Nav Gps Receiver Review

John, Unbeatable
3 May 2012
  • Excerpt: This is my first foray into the world of sat nav and using the Avic S1 comes with mixed blessings. The unit is housed in a neat thin shiny black body and has a good flexible stalk on suction mount to enable you to position it just where you want. It has three discrete controls on the front which allow you to control the volume, go to the map and go to the menu. Thereafter a soft tap on the screen will run you through the rest of the functions.
  • Pros: Good looking. Nice all black body does not reflect on the windscreen. Good mounting. Clear audio. Easy controls. Intuitive menu - works out of the box. Responsive.
  • Cons: No full post code search. Not always the best route.
