Expert review by: Ross Catanzariti (

Pioneer AVIC-F20BT in-car navigation system


The Pioneer AVIC-F20BT combines navigation, Bluetooth mobile phone control and audio-visual entertainment into a single in-dash unit.

Excellent sound quality, accurate mapping/navigation, responsive touchscreen, USB port, iPod/iPhone connectivity, SD card slot, DVD and CD playback, auxiliary inputs, ease of use

Interface is visually inferior to many portable GPS units, no voice recognition, limited DivX support (CD and DVD only), no RDS on FM radio, expensive, annoying safety alerts

Pioneer's AVIC-F20BT in-car navigation system is a jack of all trades. An easy-to-use interface combined with the wealth of features on offer makes this a nice option -- if you can afford its hefty asking price.

It’s Pioneer’s ability to put all this functionality together in a single stylish unit that is cause for applause. Great music, hands-free calls, satnav whenever you need it (no fumbling for cables and awaiting lock-on). And look at the car — not a...

Pioneer AVIC-F20BT in-car navigation system


Bad product IMO. I wish I could reverse the install in my car without paying a cent, but unfortunately the damage has been done. I still run my TomTom as this SatNav is unreliable. You can't even switch the whole unit off! It is actually a pain in the...
