Video: Pioneer AVIC-F900BT Navigation Receiver
Heads up!Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.
In this short video, car audio experts Deb and Zak highlight some of the coolest features of Pioneer's AVIC-F900BT in-dash navigation receiver.
Deb: Hi, I'm Deb.
Zak: I'm Zak.
Deb: We're here with the AVIC-F900BT navigation receiver. Now the first thing you notice about the receiver is the size. It's a double-size receiver with a gorgeous 5.8-inch touchscreen display.
Zak: It is a gorgeous touchscreen and it's got these big icons which make navigation easy. For instance, here we are at Crutchfield Park, and it's got text-to-speech directions, which means it'll tell you out loud what street to turn onto.
Deb: Instead of just "turn left" it'll say "turn left on Main Street."
Zak: Exactly. And if you have an MSN Direct subscription, you can get real-time traffic and weather, plus movie times, local restaurants, things like that.
Deb: And even a feature for gas prices; it'll tell you where the nearest gas station is and how much gas is per gallon.
Zak: That's great.
Deb: For your iPod, it's got voice control of the iPod. You can tell it to shuffle, you can look up artist and album titles.
Zak: Exactly. Well, this unit also has built-in Bluetooth, for safe, hands-free calls while you're driving, plus a USB input and a set of A/V inputs for adding sources.
Deb: It also has a rear camera input, so if you want to put a rear-view camera in, you can install that for the larger vehicles. They're very small, very lightweight.
Zak: Yeah, great for bigger vehicles if you're backing into a tight space or something like that. So there we are, the Pioneer AVIC-F900BT navigation receiver.
