Nice but no updates

  • Summary: This is a very nice GPS. The problem is that Pioneer only provided one update in 2008. For the price this unit costed new, they should provide some support and new updates. This unit is better then the S2 model. I have both. For $50 it was a good buy. The built in maps allows for sd slot use without loosing your navigation capability. The S2 has to keep the sd card in the unit to use the mavigation.

I really hate this unit

Overstock
28 November 2009
  • 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.

Good Gps

  • Summary: I think this gps is good but they should make it recieve more satelite signal faster so that it doesn't freeze while you're driving, other than that you can trust it.

A Little Slow

Overstock
11 April 2008
  • Summary: My dad got this one for me as a gift, I kept getting lost driving around Los Angeles. Have been using it for a while now, and while it has kept me from getting lost, I have a couple complaints/comments. 1) It takes a long time once you turn it on to find the satelite signal. My mom has a Garmin, and hers is much quicker. It can take 5 min or longer sometimes, and when you're driving, that can equal a long way in the wrong direction.

Way behind competition

Jacek Jablonski, Amazon
4 February 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. Sadly, in all counts except maybe hardware ways, this forgotten by otherwise very good name company toy stays way behind all competition offering worse features, poor (nonexistent yet) updates,...

AVIC-S1

Navman, Amazon
4 February 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. I'd like to be able to preview all of the turns on my route BEFORE I start navigating to that route. - Postition updating is slow and, at least on my unit, inaccurate by tens of feet.
