Pioneer Avic F500BT ... voice. It's time to stop wishing for the next great thing because it's here. This is your life made easier. A traditional portable navigation device lacks the extensive mapping commonly found with in-dash navigation systems. It also can be completely void of any entertainment value. The AVIC-F500BT brings the convenience of portable navigation together with the robust entertainment features found only in Pioneer in-dash units.
Now you don't have to worry about map discs being misplaced, damaged, lost, or stolen. The entire TeleAtlas Database that was previously on the two-DVD set has been taken, compressed down, and stored internally on flash memory.
The AVIC-F500BT offers a new generation of voice recognition capability for controlling iPod playback and making calls hands-free via connected Bluetooth-enabled cell phones. The technology accepts and recognizes conversational phrases and language, filters out superfluous sounds and phrases, and if the user doesn't give enough information in the command, the unit will ask additional questions to clarify the request. The AVIC-F500BT comes with built-in Bluetooth. Now you never need to miss a call, even if your tunes are cranked up or your phone is buried in your bag.
Simplified menus and intuitive icons shorten the learning curve, allowing you to quickly and efficiently start using the system. Quickly enter destinations, browse music libraries, or adjust settings. It is easy to play various digital and audio formats like: DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW discs, Portable Media Players like iPod, USB memory devices, and SD Cards. You can play a wide range of files types as well, such as MP3, WMA, iTunes AAC, and MPEG-4 video files.
The WVGA display is much higher quality at 800 x 480 pixels. Images become sharper and more defined, just like maps and menus on these units. The display's enhanced GUI (Graphic User Interface) has also advanced, making system control and management effortless. Fast and easy control through USB, the AVIC-F900BT also features iPod Album Art display, Alphabetical Speed Search, and much more.

It might be a very good unit, pity it is let down by the after care service from Pioneer. I was after a replacement Sat Nav as the one fitted by Peugeot in my car is a bit dated but it is irreplaceable as it comes as a single unit which also controls the Radio, Air Con etc. Having compared the various units offered by Tom-Tom Garmin and Pioneer, the Pioneer on the face of it did everything I needed. Firstly, it connected to my existing Radio giving it a new lease of life as the Sat Nav instructions would be via my car speakers but in addition it also had a blue tooth connection for my mobile phone and a built in MP3 Player. This was an answer to all ... Read the complete review
