Consumer review (



I've owned 2 of these systems, the earlier version and this one. I am in field sales and I've used these systems for over 4 years daily. In my opinion they are poor systems for the investment, here's why... - The retractable screen design is poor, mine...

Lots of bells and whistles, can use telephone numbers as an alternate look-up

Can't paly music CD's while using full system Doesn't operate well in even moderate tempeture extremes Poor design, wire harness in screen breaks easily Voice recognition is worthless Poorly designed alogrithms, unpredictable and error prone directions

Awesome car stereo


One note - the picture for this product is inaccurate. For the right picture look the model up on the pioneer web site *hints at newegg to update the picture*. If you get this player, you will not be disappointed, it looks much better than it does on...

This stereo/navigation system is far beyond what I expected. It has great sound quality, a very nice screen, and it looks very stylish. I went though several players that were on the cheaper side, and they were horrid. This one has all the features one...

The ""hide-away"" box that comes with it could be hard to actually hide-away, considering how many things must be connected to it.

Product Specifications

Pioneer's AVIC-N4 further improves your driving experience with a multitude of advanced features. The unit keeps drivers better informed - and entertained - with detailed map information for wider area, intuitive touch-panel operation, GUI with improved visibility, and CD and/or DVD playback. Additionally, the system is ready to deliver detailed traffic information for major cities in conjunction with the XM NavTraffic service and an optional XM Radio tuner. The Pioneer AVIC-N4 in-dash navigation system comes with two DVD-ROMs containing a massive Tele Atlas database, enabling the unit to provide a gigantic network of turn-by-turn routable roads. Within seconds, the unit's extremely fast processor calculates multiple routes and provides directions to destinations via the graphic map interface and voice guidance. In addition, you'll have access to 12 million points of interest throughout the United States and Canada, meaning the nearest gas station, restaurant, or ATM is always only a finger's touch away. The AVIC-N4 packs big features into a "single-DIN" size that can fit into most vehicles. The 7" TFT display is bright and easy to read, and features touchscreen operation so it's simple and easy to use. And the integration gets even better with the AVIC-N4's multi-color illumination, which gives you the ability to match the interface to the colors of your dashboard, or your mood. How much music and video can you bring to your AVIC-N4? That depends on how deep your iPod library is. In addition to the built-in arsenal of multimedia playback options, Pioneer iPod-ready navigation systems like the AVIC-N4 make integrating your iPod simple with the optional CD-I200 iPod Direct Control cable. And control of your iPod music and video library is quick and seamless via touchscreen control of the intuitive graphic menu. Once you try the AVIC-N4's iPod playback, you'll be using it to play all of the songs, podcasts, and videos you can get your hands on. It's time to put that phone down. Thanks to the optional CD-BTB200 Bluetooth adapter, you can make and receive phone calls hands-free when you sync a compatible Bluetooth-enabled cell phone to your AVIC-N4. Once you're connected, during a call you simply talk into the unit's included microphone while listening through your in-car speakers. To make calling even more convenient, for certain compatible Bluetooth-enabled cellphones you can copy and store your numbers from the cellphone to your AVIC-N4's internal phone book. Once you're set up, you may never have to lay a finger on your cellphone to make a call in your vehicle again. Add the optional XM NavTraffic service to the AVIC-N4, and you'll be one step ahead of traffic every time. Using the available GEX-P10XMT XM NavTraffic Satellite Radio Tuner, traffic information is provided through a continuous broadcast. The AVIC-N4's intelligent navigation will alert you of traffic jams and provide alternate routes. And with XM's satellite radio service, you'll be able to enjoy a great selection of music, talk, and sports channels with loads of exclusive content. Being aware of traffic has never been easier.
