Pioneer - AVIC-X910BT In-Dash Navigation AV Receiver with DVD Playback Bluetooth

In-Dash Navigation AV Receiver with DVD Playback, Built-In Bluetooth and 5.8" WVGA Touchscreen Display


Play music from your iPod and make hands-free Bluetooth® phone calls just using your voice
MSN Direct built-in (subscription required) --

NOTE: MSN-Direct is being canceled 1/1/2012. This has led to this unit being replaced with the AVIC-X920BT which is similar in features with some minor differences including the loss of MSN-Direct receiver. But that means this receiver can be found pretty cheaply at the moment. MSN-Direct is free for 3 months, and $29.95 through 12/31/2011 if you want it (it's actually kind of cool - it integrates gas prices, traffic, movies, etc with the GPS navigation as well as weather, news, etc.)

Not the best receiver I've ever seen, but pretty close given the price.

I was able to get everything I wanted - Bluetooth, Sirius, HD, SD memory slot, USB memory, rear video camera ready, etc. For a pretty reasonable price.

You will need some adapters - like a CAN bus interface, and dash faceplate "hardware kit" (couple pieces of plastic).

Installing also means taking a dremel to the 2 top tabs at the back of the dash as this unit is bit taller than the stock one. You might be able to bend them out of the way but cutting them off took 5 minutes with the dremel and a fiberglass reinforced cutoff wheel.

Routing all the cables wasn't fun... I mounted the extra boxes (optional recievers/bus interface) under the glove box (there's a panel that pops out). It's tight but fit.

Follow the CAN bus instructions carefully... but check on avic411.com for guidance on how to "mod" the unit.

Overall I'm happy. Got everything the RER does plus HD Radio and MSN-Direct, in a unit I like more, and spent less on it totally. But be prepared to work for it. If you want plug-n-play, find a RER (aka MyGig) unit.

I'm not sure if it's the phone or the head unit but sometimes during playback, it pauses or even says the iPhone is not authorized to play. However, the deck looks amazing and it gets the job done in style!
