Pioneer AVIC-HD3

 

Although Pioneer's AVIC-HD3 is indeed a GPS system, it is far, far more than that as well. At $3799 it is (at the time of writing) the most expensive ...

3D Gyro Sensor, warnings for which lane to be in, large 7in screen, integrated DVD player, AM/FM radio, 10GB worth of music storage space, plenty of modular additions (at an extra cost)

Expensive, fixed to the car, will not fit all cars

This is an extremely comprehensive system with some high-end GPS features, most notably the 3D Gyro Sensor, but the AVIC-HD3 offers so much more. If you're purely after a GPS device this is more than you'll need. However, if you're after a fully...

Pioneer AVIC-HD3

 

Pioneer, late to the Aussie GPS market, is hoping to make a splash in the top end of the market with the AVIC-HD3 -- an integrated double-DIN, GPS, music, video and communications unit.

Outlook After introducing the world's first GPS in its home market of Japan in 1990, Pioneer took 17 years to dip its toe in our GPS waters. Its two pronged attack aims at both ends of the market, with the AVIC-HD3 hoping to make a splash at the top...

AVIC HD 3 is marketed as a state of the art integrated GPS system yet it DOES NOT have speed and red light locations which are standard on any $200 units. What a oversight Pioneer!

Big screen

Price and lack of most basic useful features

Purchased the AVIC-F900BT from AutoBarn Preston Vic and had it installed yesterday in my MBenz ML 320, excellent unit and by far exceeds the MB sat nav at some $6,000.

Features, easy to use, changable display lighting colour range, live traffic updates using radio station info

price needs to come down a little

Excellent unit, bluetooth is great for phone calls when driving, sound quality excellent. Had it for 18months now. Worth the money...

Say no more... all in one

Can't copy MP3 to HD, hopefully will be fix in future updates. AU$349 for map update, should be $50 a pop

Good Unit only. Looks great in the dash.

GPS is great

Cannot copy mp3's to HDD, only from original CD!!! ipod navigation is slow and tedious. Too many audio options make it confusing

Love it. But expensive once you get all the addons. Was amazed at the quality improvement in sound. Voice recognition is great. Sat Nav is best i have used.

Voice recognition, sat navigation

Unlike the Avic H3 it cannot be tailored to look like a factory fitted model by matching your existing interior colors. The Pioneer Blue is fixed

I am presuming that if your brother owns it he is not in this country, as the first ones are still awaiting delivery, but I do agree, it is a brilliant product, and much better than the kenwood with a lot more functionality, especially the HD
