I have owned this unit for along time and I am just going back to a regular radio.
PM with any questions
"Forget installing multiple components — in the AVIC-N1, Pioneer rolled DVD/CD/MP3 playback, touch-screen system control, and navigation capability into a single in-dash receiver. It'll even monitor different aspects of your vehicle's performance! The AVIC-N1 fits most standard dash openings, and features a hideaway box where most of the inputs and outputs can be found.
The AVIC-N1 comes with two map DVDs, which cover the U.S. They're programmed with detailed street maps and over 12 million points of interest, such as restaurants, gas stations, hotels, and more. The AVIC-N1's 64MB memory lets you remove the map DVD once you've entered a destination, so you can enjoy CDs and MP3s while you get visual and audio turn-by-turn directions. The system monitors your position using its GPS antenna, internal gyroscope, and the connection you make with your vehicle's speed sensor.
When you're driving, you can have the screen display several vehicle dynamics specs. These include acceleration, lateral G-force, speed, angular velocity, and vehicle slope angle. If you're keen on showing off just what your car can do, the AVIC-N1 gives you a great way to do it!
Pioneer also packed plenty of four-way high power into the AVIC-N1, so your music and movie soundtracks will play with serious strength. To adjust the sound to fit your vehicle's acoustics, you can adjust the three-band parametric EQ. And if you really want to drive your speakers and add subwoofers for even more oomph, you can connect amplifiers to the three sets of preamp outputs.
System expansion also plays a vital role in the AVIC-N1's performance. You can add a CD or DVD changer to the built-in controls. The receiver will control a compatible XM or SIRIUS Satellite Radio tuner (tuner, antenna, and subscription required) for over 120 channels of coast-to-coast entertainment. And you can connect a separate A/V component, such as a game system or videocassette player, to the set of audio/video inputs.
If you need to keep the monitor retracted while you're driving, you can still control the system — a ten-character secondary display keeps you in full command, even if the monitor's closed.
When you're parked, you can use the 6.5" LCD to watch DVDs. If you connect an optional backseat monitor, you'll be able to take advantage of tri-zone capability. You can listen to the radio up front, send DVD signal to the back, and keep the navigation system running!
