Pioneer AVIC-U310BT review: Pioneer AVIC-U310BT


Pioneer's goal with the AVIC-U310BT, the entry-level model in its AVIC in-dash navigation line, was to meet the three major needs: GPS navigation, digital audio playback, and Bluetooth hands-free calling.

The Pioneer AVIC-U310BT supports digital audio playback from USB storage devices, MP3 players, and iPods. The hands-free calling feature automatically imports contacts form a paired phone. The touch screen is detachable and powered, for destination...

The preloaded point-of-interest library is severely limited. Multiple menu sources make it hard to find the parameter you want to change. No video playback options.

The Pioneer AVIC-U310BT isn't perfect, but it meets most people's needs for navigation, hands-free calling, and digital audio playback at a very affordable price.

"Just not reliable"


I had this unit replace 2 times (3 radio so far) at dealer. Every winter, this unit freeze and unit stop responding to Bluetooth and display stay black. Recharging front part and keeping it warm help but if my car can sustain Canadian winter, why...

Best Budget Navi Deck


For the price, it is a no brainer.

This deck transformed my car. I now have bluetooth, ipod, HD Radio and navi running in the car. The BT works flawless! It feels like it made the car more modern

Navigation sometimes looses its location. Menu is laggy sometimes. Very weak POI database. Small screen for where the deck is located. No DVD or video input

very limited POI's, no traffic updates. the POI's are VERY limited. you can update them on pioneer's site, but it should have came stock with this unit

Decent, but...


Basically, it's not a bad selection for a radio with built in GPS. However, as seems to be the case around the holidays, most of the local car audio places in town are suddenly offering the same system for about $100 cheaper than I purchased it here.

Good navigation, iPod connection works fine for music, bluetooth pairs very easily

The mic is not very good for picking up voice during a phone call. Also, the navigation system does not include all of the Point of Iterest items that a Garmin or TomTom would have (gas stations, etc.). Finally, the iPod navigation is relegated to...

A great product ”


I think this is a good product.  Pioneer has always been a brand you can trust.  The best thing about this is being able to bring your music from your MP3 or IPod with you in to your car.  You don't have to worry about leaving a stack of CD's in your...
