AVOID!! DO NOT BUY!!

  • Summary: I have owned this unit for almost a year now and have had nothing but problems. Lots of freezing issues, even after I upgraded the firmware. It's always a question whether it will boot up. And when it does, it takes forever. I have to reset the unit at least once a week. Now, after all my other troubles, I have NO sound. It's a shame because it should be a great unit. The graphics are amazing on both the map and the XM radio icons.

Don't buy unsupported equipment

  • 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 The maps are way out of date and it will cost 129.99 to buy the latrest ,ap series which is now 2 years old.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.

Horrible DO NOT BUY!

Peter S. Cantalupo "PLupo", Amazon
27 September 2007
  • Summary: Unit does nothing but freeze and need to be restarted. I had to reset the unit out of the box several times. Nothing compared to pioneer S1. I never complain about anything but when something doesn't work you should know. I had several friends that had the pioneer S1 and had no problems. You think wow new S2 must be great, but it is a bad investment. I do not recommend this item.

Defective directions

Andrea Masry, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased This supposedly fantastic unit a month ago. For more than a month of my daily commute it doesn't recognize a major exit off the freeway.It didn't learn as they claim.I spoke to pioneer, who asked to check the installation, so i went back to firedog who verified that everything is installed properly. i called tech support again who informed me that it's defective software. The software doesn't calculate certain exits, even though they are on the map.

I would not give this to my ex-wife

  • 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...

DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT!!!

Scott Ross, Amazon
27 September 2007
  • Summary: This unit is loaded with features. Unfortunately it has so many practical flaws that it virtually unusable and should be avoided. The most glaring issue is that when the vehicle is in motion almost every feature becomes disabled because the touchscreen interface is blacked out. The touch screen becomes completely inoperable! This is supposedly a "safety" issue, but it makes the unit virtually worthless.
