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.

Hope They Get it Better Next time

  • 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.

Best GPS out there

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Summary: Nice size, quick load maps, accurate, sensitive. You can use this unit right out of the box. No maps to buy and it's easy to use. Charge it up and you can carry it around.

I like it a lot...

DJB, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this unit up and running now for approximately two months. NAV system works great. Touch screen is very responsive. Less than 20 seconds to sync up with GPS and have my music or video running all at the same time when I first start my vehicle. Very nice and does not seem like a long time to me. All NAV/DVD systems lock you out of certain features while you are driving. This is not new or exclusive to Pioneer.

Probably gets a 4.5

  • Summary: I have had this for about a week now and the pros outweigh the few cons. First off, the maps are very accurate and load fast, the 3d view and tracking is perfect and the route updating is almost instananeous. The bluetooth works about as good as bluetooth does and I havn't bothered with the MP3 player. All in all its been a good unit and I would highly reccomend it.

Chrysler Vehicles

R. Cromer, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great unit but if you have a newer Chrysler/Jeep vehicle with the Infinity system you will need a special wiring harness. The only harness you can use is the Metra CHTO-03 and it is not easy to find and usually on backorder. You can not install this system without it.

De AVIC-S2

Koala_4E, Ciao
19 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Ik gebruik nu sinds twee maanden de AVIC-S2 en ben tot nu toe erg tevreden. Ik had hiervoor een Tom Tom en ik moet zeggen dat de TT iets gebruiks vriendelijker is maar na een paar dagen gebruik is alles zeer duidelijk. Een grapje is de MP3 speler, deze functie hadden ze net zo goed achterwege kunnen laten. Positief en zeer te gebruiken is de Blue Tooth functie voor de Mobiele Telefoon.
  • Pros: Compact, Betrouwbaar en duidelijke gebruiksaanwijzing
  • Cons: De MP3 functie is (letterlijk) waardeloos  .  De aanschaf prijs is hoog
