Summary: Don't waste your money! I bought this unit, NEW, last year and installed it in my 2003 F150. Loved the unit at first. Worked better than my wife's Honda Nav System. A few months ago it started to act erratic. Would just out of the blue start giving me directions home. I would try to cancel the route and it would lock up and default back to the map. Then I noticed that the map keeps rotating 180 degrees.
Summary: I really do love this thing and it's going down as one of the best things I've purchased for myself. Yes, it has some drawbacks, but after messing around with cheaper portable GPSs and getting lost, I am thrilled to have this one- it's been spot on. The only time it can get confused is in complicated interchanges, but I don't know of any that can really sort those out well. I've had this unit now for about six months and have zero regrets.
Summary: Best Indash Ive had by far, love the voice recognition. Has input for all the goodies like ipod, or memory card. What can I say the quality you expect from pioneer is always exceeded by their actual quality.
Have been through five units, all of them had some quirk

Summary: Have had to return five of these units due to some defect, whether display issues, AM reception issues, navigation issues, wiring issues. My LAST experience with this unit was my attempt to buy a 'refurbished' unit, hoping that it may have already 'failed' at one point and have been 'fixed' by Pioneer. What a mistake; not only the unit (which failed) but with the seller "Googol Shop". DO NOT BUY from 'Googol Shop'; they don't stand behind what they say.
Summary: i like the in dash idea BUT thus nav tells you are at your destination when you are only in the area, its seriously complicated especially when your destination is across the street it is forever telling you to go back, it does not stop talking as to keeping right, keeping left
Summary: I have a Pioneer Amplifier that I bought in 1971 and it's still works very well. This unit never did and I can't see Pioneer fixing it. Maybe I'm just an old fart now but, boy do I miss analog controls. The people who designed this must never drive anything but a rickshaw! It's the most brain numbingly stupid device ever. It's so slow to boot , that you will be at your destination before this thing wakes up.
Summary: i bought this item about two months ago! its a very excellent gps and stereo and ipod stereo love it works well.... BUT YOU MIGHT WANT TO GET THESE FEW ITEMS!!!!!! THE Pioneer CD-IU230V Ipod Audio/Video Direct Cable For Avic-F900Bt & Avic-F700Bt IN ORDER FOR YOU TO VIEW THE IPOD MUSIC AND ALBUMS ON THE NAVIGATION SCREEN AND TO WATCH MOVIES FROM THE IPOD TOO...
Summary: I love this product and recommend to any one. But only the disadvantage is maps are not to upto date. Mine is a 11years old car it definitely gave a whole new look to the car. Bluetooth works perfectly fine. I Installed at Bestbuy and they did a good job.
