We all know that the Pioneer AVIC-D3 was a great product. What could ever replace Pioneer's AVIC-D3? The feature-packed AVIC-F series in-dash navigation will certainly be this outstanding replacement and much, much more for many years to come!

Integration
Integration is a crucial element to the AVIC-F Series design, just like the old AVIC-D3. The front-panel is an entirely new look with a much more minimalistic and upgraded look. Users are given the choice of 32,768 customizable illumination colors, allowing this double DIN receiver to integrate into any dash seamlessly.

HDD Navigation
Where the AVIC-D3 failed, the AVIC-F units will triumph. The AVIC-D3's obsolete DVD-based GPS navigation system has been replaced by an all new hard drive based GPS software that holds over 12 million points of interest. No more shuffling navigation discs, no more stopping or pausing your music! Users will also experience a much smoother and faster response system while navigating since everything has already been preloaded onto the hard drive. In addition, the built-in navigation is at an "always-on" power state that is always ready to go when you are.

Bluetooth, iPod, USB, and... what more can you ask for? Oh yeah, Satellite and HD Radio!
The AVIC-F90BT, AVIC-F900BT, and the AVIC-F700BT all has built-in Bluetooth technology that allow users to make hands-free phone calls with caller ID and call status displayed on the screen. You won't have to buy any additional accessories or add-ons. It is also capable of controlling any iPod audio or video sources through its USB port that supports other media devices that contains AAC, MP3, and WMA files.

The AVIC-F units all feature an SD Card Reader, USB port and RCA audio/video auxiliary inputs. In addition, all AVIC-F series will be able to receive Sirius or XM Satellite Radio and HD Radio with additional accessories.

Conversational Voice Command
Last but not least is the unique voice control technology built-in each of the AVIC-F units. You can now control what music you want to play without even the push of a button. You could simply say "Play artist Chris Brown" and it will play all songs with that artist. In addition, you could likewise do the same for hands-free dialing. What's unique about the voice command feature is its ability to decipher pausing words or fill-in words such as "ummm, uhhh... the uhhhh..." It will still recognize names even if you say "Call uhhh Alison" If phonebook entry Alison has more than one number, the AVIC-F unit will ask "Found three numbers for Alison, which would you like to dial?" It's almost like a SCIFI movie or something from iRobot. This breakthrough feature will definitely impress you and everyone else riding in your car!

Special for the AVIC-F90BT and AVIC-F900BT
The AVIC-F90BT features the innovative built-in MSN Direct receiver which could display traffic information, movie times, weather, and much more! It is capable of receiving data for most major US cities and will display corresponding information on the screen. You'll never be late to a movie again, you'll always be able to avoid traffic jams, and you'll always know what to expect from the weather on your next road trip!

In-Dash Receiver Specifications

Receiver Size

Single DIN: 1 DIN dimensions will work with all single DIN installation kits we have to offer. Single DIN radios are the most common size for after-market stereos.

Single DIN slot with flip-out screen: The DIN stereo includes a retractable, flip-out screen. Before purchasing, make measurements to be sure there is no interference with dash accessories such as A/C vents or shift levers.

Single DIN slot with a larger face: Standard single DIN size, but the display is larger then the standard single DIN size. Due to the nature of the larger face, problems may arise when installing in particular vehicles. These stereos are great for single DIN slots where you want a larger screen.

1.5 DIN: This size is very uncommon in vehicles, however this size opening is most commonly found in Chrysler and Chevrolet vehicles.

Double DIN: Approximately 4-inches in height, this size is becoming more common every year. Prior to 2000, this size was typically only found in Japanese vehicles such as those made by Honda or Toyota. Now, it is becoming more popular for many vehicles to be fit with a Double DIN opening.

Double DIN
Faceplate Security

Detachable / Removable faceplate security: The most common anti-theft feature. It allows you to take the faceplate with you, thus disallowing operation, which deters theft.

Security Codes: Mainly a feature in high end video units which do not have a detachable face / screen. Once the unit is uninstalled (or stolen), a security code (or PIN) is required upon reinstallation. Though you no longer have your unit after the theft, the thief also does not have your security code, which makes the unit useless. The hope is the thief knows which units have security codes and he/she chooses not to steal your unit because of the security code.

Ghost technology: This is not commonly used, but can be found primarily in a select number of 2004-2005 head units. It creates an illusion that no unit is installed by appearing completely black when turned off. Potential thieves may steer clear because it appears as though no head unit is installed.

Anti-theft covers: Similar to ghost and hiding faces because they only create an illusion that the face/unit is not in place.

ESN: Stands for Electronic Serial Number. Allows the disabling of the radio and allows tracking if it is stolen.

Security Code
Motorized Faceplate
Some in-dash car stereos feature a motorized faceplate that moves to expose a CD or DVD slot. This is a convenient feature that allows the front display to be larger and easier to read. The positioning of the monitor gives you control over the angle you would like to view information on the stereo.
No
Remote Control
Allows control of specific features and functions from a remote control. Typically they are used to prevent button wear on your radio, or to allow easier navigation of menus.
No
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

50 watts x 4 channels
RMS Power Output
The amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS rating, the louder and cleaner your music sounds. The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.
22 watts x 4 channels
Preamp RCA Outputs
RCA outputs, commonly known as preamp outputs, allow you to connect one or sometimes multiple external amplifiers. An in-dash receiver will commonly have one, two or three sets of RCA outputs that can be used to connect external amplifiers and other components. One pair of RCA outputs will typically provide a full range signal that can be used for most subwoofer or speaker amplifiers. Two pairs of RCA outputs can typically be configured as four full range signals, or also as two full range and two subwoofer signals. Three sets of RCA outputs will almost always produce four speaker signals and two subwoofer signals for use with multiple amplifiers.
3 Pairs (Front, Rear, and Subwoofer)
Dedicated Subwoofer Preamp RCA Output
A dedicated output that has a built-in low-pass crossover for specific connection to a subwoofer amplifier that powers a low frequency driver, typically a subwoofer.
Yes
Preamp Voltage
The preamp output rating is measured in volts (V). The higher the rating, the stronger the signal. This results in less unwanted noise being picked up.
2 volts
Built-In Equalizer
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the stereo receiver is equipped with. The more EQ options, the more you will be able to adjust your music to your liking.
EEQ - 3 Band Parametric EQ
Display Type
The type of display on your receiver refers to the monitor that is used to display the source information such as song names, radio stations, or track times.

Dot-Matrix Text Display: A simple display which uses dots in specific illuminated color(s) to light up and form letters or numbers that are displayed on the receiver.

Graphic or Motion Display: Typically found in mid to high-end receivers and give your text information and receiver more life by adding motion, backgrounds, or multiple colors to your display. There are types of graphic displays such as 3D Graphic, Motion, and OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) displays. They can range from one color to full color displays and typically allow you to select from one of many built-in animations, background images, screensavers or other graphics to enhance your experience and add an extra bit of personality to your system. Some units also come with software that allow you to load your own customizable pictures or animations.

LCD Monitor Display: Can be as small as 2" or as large as 10". Some LCD displays are motorized for angle adjustment. LCD monitors display full motion video playback as well as your standard text such as track status, radio station information and more depending on the receiver's features.

TFT-LCD Monitor
Display Color
The display color refers to the color of the text and or graphics on the receiver.

Multi-Color: When more than one color is on the display, for example one part of the text is white, while the other part is blue.

Variable-Color: The display colors can be changed by the user. If the default color of text/display is blue for example, the user can change the settings to where the color turns to red. Variable color displays are typically described in detail in the item's description.

TFT-LCD Display: In-dash receivers with a video screen that display multiple colors and often times video such as DVD, navigation or other video sources.

Full Color
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.

Radio Data System (RDS)
Receivers with Radio Data System (RDS) tuners can receive digital broadcast information about the FM radio station including program name, time and station identification. RDS enables your receiver to display text messages that many FM stations include on a sub-carrier signal within their normal broadcast signal. Some RDS tuners can even break in with traffic alerts or emergency broadcasts when you're listening to a CD.
CD-R/RW Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play finalized CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs.
Yes
MP3 Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with MP3 files. To burn a MP3 encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.

DVD Region Number
This is the region number that the DVD receiver is compatible with. Almost any device that has the ability to play a DVD disk has a region number. DVD region codes restrict playback of movies that come from geographical locations outside of your residing place.
Dual Zone
Dual zone means the stereo is capable of playing multiple audio or video sources between two separate locations.

Please refer to the item description for more details on how dual zone works specifically to the unit you are viewing.

Audio / Video Inputs

USB Input
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver features an input to connect a USB device via standard USB or mini-USB. The USB input may be a connection on the front or rear of the unit with an extension cable for connecting devices to the receiver. Some units have an optional input that allows for a USB adapter to be purchased separately and used with the unit.
Rear
Number of Front USB Inputs
Number of Rear USB Inputs
Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

3.5mm
This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

Optional
This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

1 Set of Rear RCA A/V Inputs

Monitor Screen Features

Touchscreen
If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
Yes
Screen Size
This is the size of the monitor on the unit. It is measured diagonally and in inches. The bigger the number the larger the screen.
Monitor Angle Adjustment

Backward:
This means that the unit is able to tilt backwards so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, this type of pivot means that the bottom of the screen stays stationary while the top of the screen retracts. On Double DIN units this means that the bottom of the screen slides forward while the top of the screen moves down, resulting in a backwards angle tilt.

Forward:
This means that the unit is able to tilt forward so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, a forward pivot keeps the bottom of the screen stationary while the top of the screen moves forward. On select Double DIN units, a forward tilt is sometimes referred to as a reverse tilt. The bottom of the screen remains in the same position while the top of the screen moves forward.

Left/Right Angle (Horizontal):
Some monitors allow the display to be rotated to the left or right in order to have the best viewing angle possible.

Slide In/Out:
A feature mainly found in select Kenwood units. It allows the entire screen to slide in and out. This is different from a forward/backward tilt in that the entire screen moves forward or backwards as opposed to just the top or bottom.

None
MirrorLink Compatible
MirrorLink allows connectivity between a smartphone and the aftermarket car receiver. The consumer gets into the car, connects the phone with a cable, and gains access to phone applications through the car stereos controls such as navigation and steering wheel buttons. MirrorLink allows consumers to use their smartphones safely and simply, keeping eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

Pioneer AVIC-F900BT

October 13, 2010

. I have had this product for awhile now and finally decided to write this review. The system for the most part works ok. Sound quality is great. On screen display is very hard to see even in low sun light. I had to get my windows tinted just to help with the screen display. $250.00 later. The voice command works like c***, the system never knows the name of the person I am trying to call. I have tried many times and just get pissed off and go back to old school. I have an I- touch and this works very good... but again never plays the song I want when trying to use the voice command. I wish there was some real way of trying these products before making a purchase. For the price of these units they should work flawlessly

Great Navigation & Multimediaplayer!

July 9, 2009

I cant give a full review of this product since i dont use all of its functions, but the navigation, ipod support and bluetooth works great, since i am using it in norway, the FM radio isnt super duper, because of the frequency differences, but all the stations i usualy listen to are good enough :) i would say im pretty picky when it comes to sound quality, and the Pioneer Avic-F900BT delivers great sound from the original speakers, cant wait to upgrade the speakers in the car :) Great value, absolutely worth it ;) THUMBS UP!!!!

So much potential to be awesome, but it is drowned with problems.

July 7, 2009

I bought this stereo unit holding hopes that it was the most feature packed and powerful unit of its type avaible anywhere. That is exactly what it was, too. For about the first 2 weeks. After the aforementioned two weeks, the unit unexpectedly shut off and restarted on its own. I shrugged it off, and figured it was just a freak occurance, and kept right on chugging along. Then it did it again. No warnings, it just goes black, and then shows the start up screen as it reboots itself. This would be tolerable if not for the next problem. After a few days of the weird random restarts, I began to notice the touch screen's sensitivity was beginning to decline. Where it used to respond nearly as fast as you could tap icons, it started to take two or three tap attempts to make it work. After about a month since it was installed ( by professionally licensed Pioneer dealing people), the screen barely worked at all, taking sometimes hundreds (yes, HUNDREDS) of taps to get an icon to respond. This on its own would be very annoying and hampering, but for someone like me who hates waiting 6-8 weeks for warranty service, it could be managed and be part of a peaceful coexistence. But these two problems coexist with each other, making this unit quite a nightmare. Don't get me wrong, the features of this unit are superb to most any other product I've seen ( and I did my research before buying this too ), and the sound quality, bluetooth, dvd quality and gps are the best I've seen. This truly would be the ultimate car stereo/navigation system if not for the two aforementioned problems. You see, when you have the iPod hooked to it and it does its random restart, it forgets you have the iPod hooked to it and you have to start from the main menu to reach it again. This would be tolerable, but the nonresponsive touch screen makes this unit a very tempting target for a fist. Maybe I got a lemon, so I could have just been unlucky, but I'm being forced ( for my safety while driving and general musical sanity) to send this off to Pioneer for replacement, repair or refund very soon. I hate doing this because of the rate warranty service is usually doled out, and I work many hours during the week leaving me strapped for time, but I cannot stand this any longer and have come way too close to just ripping it out off my dashboard, dousing it in gasoline and dropping a match on it for my prolonged ownership of this certain unit to be smart or pleasurable in any way shape or form. I hope what Pioneer sends back is 873433 times more durable and responsive than this "thing" in my dashboard.

Failed Expectations

March 18, 2009

Well I looked at this thing in a real live store because I didn't want to make a mistake, and still I did. It has some pros and more annoying cons. 1. Sound quality This is a pro, it sounds 10 times better than the six stacker CD player that came in my hi end automobile, clean clear bass and sharp uncoloured treble. 2. Playing off SD card It takes forever (2-3 minutes) to start to the point where it will play music, and when playing off SD card it won't do volume levelling, yet it does off CD/DVD and iPod. Also if I turn on the ignition of the car, wait 1-2 seconds and then start the car it starts playing from track 1 on the SD instead of the next in it's random sequence. It also starts up on the main menu screen then instead of the list or item screen of the SD menu. Another annoying feature is when switching from CD to SD it enables a GPS route telling you to turn left/right or whatever to take you who knows where, and you have to stop the car to enable the route menu so you can turn the damned thing off. AND until you've read the entire directory of the SD card you don't seem to be able to switch music sources. 3. Music Randomiser It has a very poor randomiser, often playing a song twice in a row and or after playing one other track. Obviously running my iPod this doesn't happen because the iPod takes care of it. 4. GPS It has been giving me very misleading directions when getting on/off motorways and has maps that are 2-3 years out of date with regard to some features. It also has one of the clunkiest user interfaces for setting routes I've ever seen, not even letting me set the street number for a destination, only an intersecting street. I bought it in December of 2008 and even though map features in major cities are 2-3 years old, there's no update coming until August 2009. Seriously, if you need GPS get a stand alone GPS at least you will get more frequent updates. Also it takes you on long scenic drives around in circles rather than the direct route. last weekend I used it to go somewhere I had never been before and I thought hmm I should turn here of main road A into the suburb, but it said no, go another 1/2km make a dangerous right turn onto a divided highway and then make another right turn into the North end of the suburb, adding 2km and several additional chances of a serious accident to the trip. Another annoying thing is that in Victoria we have school speed limits some of which are at school times only, and others 24hours a day. The speed warning goes off anywhere near a school whether there's a speed limit or not. Also many of the speed limits are wrong. 5. Bluetooth Address books won't transfer if there are any pictures in the address book, even 1!! syncing with my Nokia was very haphazard, and even now sometimes it won't let you here the caller when you answer a call even though it works when you make a call. Also, it takes 2-3 minutes before you can make or receive a call. On the surface that doesn't sound like an issue, but if you take off straight away as most people do, and you get a call then, you either have to pull over or hand the phone to a passenger. Then part of the way through the call it's finally woken up and it takes over this started call, except now the passenger can't even press the answer button on the phone he has to figure out what the hell happened and then switch to using the touch screen. 6. Touch screen It is way to slow in response, sometimes you press a button (on screen) and 2 seconds later nothing has happened so you press it again and get double press executed. It's definitely uncommercial. 7. Start up time This is bordering on the ridiculous. It takes 2-3 minutes from power on until it's fully functional. If it were the GPS only you could live with it, but the GPS only takes 1 minute to start tracking but you can't do anything until a minute later. It's almost like someone took a Windows computer and stuck it in a dash sized box. 8. Volume control The volume knob is extremely difficult to operate while driving, it's too small and slippery (difficult to grip) and because it's also a 4-way toggle as you drive and if the road is uneven you find the switches being activated as you try to hold the knob and turn it I looked at a number of other units from other manufacturers, and in the store I could only tell that they had worse touch screen response issues, so I would suggest that until Pioneer and others get serious about providing a properly designed product instead of a PC in the dash I would recommend buying a radio with separate GPS and Bluetooth. I would have given this 5 stars fro the audio quality, but all these issues detract from that.

Pretty Good Product

March 15, 2009

Overall this is a good product. The start-up time is pretty slow even with the 2.0 update. Another problem is sometimes i find myself tapping a button more than once until it finally responds. But the bluetooth is nice along with the voice controls. About 90% of the time it understands what album or artist i tell it to play. Overall a good product.

Pioneer review

January 27, 2009

This headunit is awesome if you have the patience to play with it and understand all of the amenities that it has. The quality of sound that you get from it is great and the features make it irresistible. I love the DVD and navigation. Both really easy to use. I love mine, you can agree or disagree with it.

Dissapointing

September 19, 2008

That one word sums it up perfectly... Disappointing. That makes the word even more fitting for this unit. When it comes to implementation, this unit is purely unacceptable. I could ramble on and on for hours about the quality problems with this system. You might not believe me. "But its so pretty and the display is so charming!" you might say. "But Pioneer makes great stuff!" others might exclaim. But you all would be wrong. I read an article about a group of monkeys that disappeared from a zoo. I know what happened to them... they went to work for Pioneer! Just to give an idea of the frustration I am encountering with this system... this morning I was on my way to work and decided to call my wife over bluetooth. Now that I had installed the firmware update my wife could finally hear me over bluetooth so I wanted to say hi. Well, after 2 minutes of furiously pressing buttons trying to get the voice prompt up, the system wigged out and rebooted. Which meant 3 minutes before it would finish booting and I could finally make my call. I am pulling it out this weekend. Either this or my hair! *** Sonic Electronix Admin Comment *** We believe the firmware upgrade was installed improperly on this unit or the unit has a slight defect. In any event, we will proactively contact the customer to hopefully set up an exchange for the AVIC-F900BT. - Sonic Electronix Xperts

crushes the pioneer d3's

July 11, 2008

right know i own a pioneer d3 in my scion. my brother just got pioneer avic-f900bt installed in his susuki. the avic-f900bt is 10 times better than the d3. about $200 more than the d3 retail price but this has a 30 gb hard drive with the nav saved inside the system, so no more hassle with changing cd's just to take a look at the nav. with this u could be watchin a dvd and without canceling the dvd u can change it to nav with just a touch of a botton. also u can store music now and videos with the new sd shots. basically no more hassle for basically the same price. i would definitely get this or get the other models of the f series.
