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 Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.
Check out this demo of the Pioneer AVIC-Z110BT navigation receiver's voice control feature. With it, you can use conversational phrases to access your music, make a call, or navigate to your destination.
Hi. I'm Ken and I'm here in the Crutchfield studio to tell you about the AVIC-Z110BT navigation receiver from Pioneer. Now the big feature on this stereo is voice control. It uses a script of conversational phrases to access the navigation and Bluetooth and also to control your music. You can switch sources and control iPod and disc playback too.
Let me show you how it works. Alright when I'm ready to do something I'll hit the "talk" button.
Ken: "Find the nearest Mexican food."
AVIC-Z110BT: "Here are the nearby points of interest."
Ken: "One's a good choice."
AVIC-Z110BT: "You can get directions, get details or call by saying something like "Get direction to number one."
Ken: "Number one."
AVIC-Z110BT: "Here are the directions."
Now that we're on the road I want to listen to some different music. I'm going to change the source.
Ken: "Change source to iPod."
AVIC-Z110BT: "The music source is set to iPod."
Ken: "Play artist Southern Cousin."
AVIC-Z110BT: "Playing the artist Southern Cousin."
And there you go. You're on the way with your favorite tunes rolling.
The receiver has a powerful navigation system. It's flash-memory based — doesn't use a disc — so it's fast, and it has the Tele-Atlas data base so you know the maps are going to be reliable plus there's a whopping twelve million points of interest.
The stereo's iPod controls work seamlessly. It does require an adapter and it works with all the newer iPods including the Touch, iPhone, and iPhone 3G. You can use the voice controls like I showed you or this nice set of touchscreen controls.
This receiver also provides a lot of connectivity for your other devices. There's a USB input, there's also two A/V inputs although one is used for the iPod adapter. There's an SD card input on the front behind the screen. You can use that for music and video. There's Bluetooth built in and of course you can play your CDs and DVDs.
The Bluetooth function is designed by Parrot, a top name in Bluetooth gear. You can place calls by voice command or onscreen dialing or by using the phone book. There's an external mic so callers can hear you clearly and you can stream music via Bluetooth from your phone or other compatible music device.
Now the sound quality is stellar with a 24-bit digital-to-analog converter that delivers smooth and natural sound. For sound tweaking you can explore the possibilities of a 7-band graphic equalizer, frequency filters, and a 3-level loudness control.
So that's the AVIC-Z110BT navigation receiver. From the 7-inch touchscreen LCD to the voice controls and the full list of features, it's a truly state-of-the-art car stereo. You can read all the details at crutchfield.com/z110 or talk to one of our advisors at 1-800-555-9408.
