Pioneer Announces Enhanced In-Dash Navigation System


Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. continues to lead the in-dash category with the AVIC-D3, a new product that combines features of navigation, entertainment, and connectivity.

The full-featured route guidance system offers nearly 11 million points of interest, XM NavTraffic integration, voice prompting and telephone number search. For entertainment, the AVIC-D3 offers MP3, WMA, AAC, DivX and DVD-video disc playback. It also provides iPod Direct connection for fast and easy control of iPod audio and video players and expanded Bluetooth capabilities for hands-free cellular phone conversations and wireless audio streaming.

The AVIC-D3 fits into most double DIN (7? X 4?) dash openings. A 6.1-inch touch panel display offers intuitive operation of all sources. Users can customize the illumination and select from eight preset colors and five graphical user interface colors, to match any dashboard and make it easy to read. RGB buttons offer more than 32,000 color variations.

Navigation

Through the aid of the AVIC-D3, consumers are provided with mapping and guidance for the entire United States and Canada. The system provides users with detailed mapping and detailed lane information in 50 cities. Included in the system are nearly 11 million points of interest such as ATMs, gas stations, hotels and restaurants, which can be overlaid directly onto the map. The system utilizes more than 50 brand icons for quick identification of familiar POIs.

With an optional traffic tuner, GEX-P10XMT, and a subscription to XM NavTraffic service, the system alerts drivers of current traffic incidents and traffic flow conditions, by overlaying the information onto the map screen with flashing lines and icons. The dynamic system also suggests alternate routes to avoid traffic congestion when it is detected.

Audio, Video, and new Media

The AVIC-D3 also provides increased playback capabilities. Compressed audio formats on recorded discs, including MP3, WMA and AAC, are all accepted by the system. A "Shuffle All" function allows for compressed audio tracks to be played randomly. DivX video format on DVD is also supported.

The CD/DVD slot remains available while the system provides route guidance, utilizing a memory navigation feature, allowing CD or DVD playback for rear-seat passengers. When a destination is entered, the route and necessary mapping information is stored into its internal memory.

XM and SIRIUS Satellite Radio are available options, in addition to other attached components such as iPod or music players with mini input jacks.

iPod Direct Control

The AVIC-D3 features a built-in iPod Direct control feature, utilizing an optional iPod cable (CD-I200) that connects to the back of the unit. Controls of the popular device are fast and easy with music content and information displayed on the touch screen monitor. The search bar (similar to the scroll wheel on an iPod) appears on the AVIC-D3 display users can view the play lists, genre, album and artist folders. With iPod videos and podcasts, viewing is just as simple with controls directly overlaid onto the screen.

Bluetooth Capability

Bluetooth-enabled cell phones can be synched to the system using an optional Bluetooth adapter for hands-free operation letting users carry out phone conversations through the vehicle?s internal speakers and the microphone included with the adapter. When a connected cell phone receives a call or is in use, the AVIC-D3 automatically displays the number of the incoming call and mutes the audio. The system also features caller identification when phone numbers are stored in its internal phone book. Phone numbers can be stored and dialed through the unit?s touch display or pushed wirelessly directly from a cell phone.

The system also features the A2DP Bluetooth protocol, allowing wireless audio streaming from Bluetooth enabled audio players. In addition, the AVRCP protocol is supported allowing for simple operation of the audio player via the touch screen.

The AVIC-D3 will be available in March 2007 with a retail price to be determined at the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show.
