Over a year ago some of the biggest names in the car audio industry, including Pioneer, sponsored a study to see what consumers knew about in-vehicle technology. The result was shocking. For instance, people thought they needed to purchase new cars in order to get a fancy infotainment systemm, rather than keeping their current vehicles and buying aftermarket multimedia radios (like the AVIC-X930BT). Can you imagine if wheel companies heard car owners thought they needed to buy an entire automobile to get new rims? The irony in all this, of course, is that OEs have always looked to the aftermarket for innovations which they then incorporate into their vehicles. It's the aftermarket that has driven carmakers to offer features like remote start, rear-seat entertainment and high-end audio systems!
Pioneer's AVIC-X930BT is a great replacement source/nav unit for the driver that wants the latest technology but doesn't want to buy a new car. Especially when you consider the price. It lists for $799. Getting navigation, all sorts of entertainment options, plus Aha Radio for under a grand is a steal.
