I really hate this unit

  • Summary: I bought this unit and immediately started having problems with the directions. I see from other reviews from people that live in large cities that is it useful in those areas. However, I live in an area that could be classified as "semi" rural and it is awful here. Apparently Pioneer does not update their maps the way other brands do. The maps in the unit are obsolete. This unit has tried to take me places where roads no longer exist.

Missing a lot of useful features

  • Summary: I bought this item based on the Pioneer name but I think they should stick to just audio. The interface between the device and the PC is just a windows CE plug in that is incapable of doing anything useful with (like planning a trip.) I recommend not buying this product if you want the convenience of planning a trip on your pc. You have no idea what route you are going to take until you are on it.
