Nice, light, compact and reliable

Challenger 3967, Amazon
4 December 2011
  • Summary: Bought this for my teenage daughter who lives about 60 miles from Kansas City. She uses it on her own to negotiate around the metropolis with no problems. She has used it now for about 8 months. We had an unfortunate experience with a Garmin product which would not maintain a charge and eventually quit working altogether but this unit is performing well.

Great first GPS,

itsLAWW, Amazon

  • Summary: Although this is the only GPS I've ever bought, I am quite pleased. The touch screen interface makes searching destinations quick and easy. I've had this GPS for about a year now, and it still works perfectly fine. If you're looking for a cheap but effective first time GPS, I would recommend getting this one.

Not worth the money

ehw_e-health_n_wellness1, Ebay
15 November 2010
  • Summary: Not worth the money I bought this before I knew that Pioneer only put out one map update in 08. Outdated maps antiquates this item. It is slow to initialize and difficult to operate. The instructions are not very good. This model has to have the sd disc installed for navigation to work and if you are not careful you could easily erase the map from the disc. The S1 is a better model.

Hope They Get it Better Next time

Amazon Customer "computerGuy", Amazon
22 March 2010
  • Summary: I've had my AVIC for about 2-3yrs now. The unit itself is great! DVD/FM/AM/IPOD/NAV build into one unit is great. I have all the extra modules for iPod control and telephone Blue-tooth which all work great. Like a couple of other reviewers said the bootup time is kinda slow, but that's because it loading the MAP software from the internal drive.

Don't buy unsupported equipment

Thomas Aldred, Amazon
19 December 2009
  • Summary: This unit has multiple gliches and problems that require an immediate downlod of sogtware. The maps are way out of date and it will cost 129.99 to buy the latrest ,ap series which is now 2 years old. Buying this product would be a serious mistake as there are many much better, that are cheaper and are up to date with their maps. The others also sell support for the maps with the unit.

I would not give this to my ex-wife

Thom K. Piper III "Abused by Pioneer", Amazon
22 September 2008
  • Summary: Life before the Avic = :) Life After = :( No worries - today is celebration day! I am finally getting this piece of garbage uninstalled. No more driving lost because the navigation quit halfway through my trip, no more listenting to Helen Reddy for hours because the unit locked up when the heavy metal station changed format, and no more The avic-z2 worked ok for the first four months - if you discount the awkward ergonomics: > pathetically small buttons which I guess is...

Best GPS out there

Dllem, Amazon
20 September 2008
  • Summary: I've looked at other car NAVs, even bought an external one for my girlfriend.. 95/100 of them would rate below the Pioneer Z series. The graphics are great, much better than other cars. My co-worker made sure to make that comment a dozen times.. The features and options are great. Bluetooth is great, tons and tons of addons.. 7" screen to watch DVDs or aux for ipod video.

Not Perfect - but an Excellent Unit!

Richard A. Brown, Amazon
8 August 2008
  • Summary: I have two of these, both originally AVIC-Z1 units. The first came with a used car I bought my wife. The 2nd unit I picked up after using the first one for a while. I had to have one of my own. The nav system works very well, and has saved me on numerous occasions. The voice prompt with street names is great. The ability to find restaurants nearby.. or to pin locations you want to remember in an address book, or the history of past destinations you can easily scroll.

Completely Satisfied

Pleasure Hutchings, Amazon
18 June 2008
  • Summary: I am very pleased with my Pioneer AVIC-Z2 radio/navigation system. It was refurbished, but it works like it was brand new. The seller shipped the product fast and everything works fine. The system is so worth the money. I recommend this to anyone looking for an in-dash navigation system.
