The Revolution Goes On — the Latest Navigation Systems from Pioneer
Pioneer's AVIC-D1 is Pioneer's newest navigation system, designed to be easy to use as well as easy on the eyes. The large 6.5-inch display panel is easy to read, the touch panel provides intuitive operation, and the layout delivers user-friendly operation by positioning the basic control keys around the screen for easy reach. The unit is designed to fit into many modern vehicles with a "factory-fit" style, melding unobtrusively into the vehicle dashboard. Of course, the AVIC-D1 provides a full media experience with AM/FM radio, CD, MP3 and WMA, and more. Additionally, the system is ready to deliver detailed traffic information for major cities in conjunction with the XM NavTraffic service and an optional XM Radio tuner.
Pioneer's new Navigation Systems with XM NavTraffic will forever change the in-car experience. Traffic information, nearly 11 million points of interest, route guidance and simple touch screen operation make the new Pioneer Navigation Systems as easy to use as they are useful.

Two DVD-ROMs with Massive “Tele Atlas” Map Database
Pioneer Navigation Systems come with two DVD-ROMs containing a massive “Tele Atlas” database, which enables the units to provide the largest network of turn-by-turn routable roads. Within seconds, the system’s extremely fast processor calculates multiple routes and provides directions to any destination via electronic map and voice prompts. The discs provide nearly 11 million points of interest (POI) throughout the United States and Canada, including Alaska and Hawaii. The system sorts 258 categories to make finding the nearest gas station, ATM or restaurant easy. As you're guided along your route, points of interest are overlaid onto the map as colorful, easy-to-recognize logos and icons.
The AVIC-D1 is designed for a perfect fit in many vehicles that feature a "double-DIN" size. The system seems to meld into the dashboard, providing a fit and finish similar to the factory systems. The front panel is motorized to provide access to the hidden disc slots, and the default position can be set to any of 6 choices for the optimum viewing angle. Buttons for important features are positioned for easy operation.
Touch Panel Operation
Using Pioneer's navigation system is a snap. Just touch large, bright icons on the screen to navigate menus, plot routes, or change map views. An easy to read status indicator provides current location information, turn distances and approximate time to destination. The touch screen has extremely fast response rates and a wide viewing angle.
Double Disc Slot
Taking advantage of the large, double-DIN size, the AVIC-D1 hides two separate disc slots behind its face panel — one for navigation map DVD-ROM and one for CD (audio CD or MP3/WMA). Music from the CD player or other audio source can be enjoyed while the navigator is in operation — in other words, there is no need to eject the map DVD-ROM.
Audio Entertainment System
The AVIC-D1 is a full-featured audio entertainment system. Listen to AM/FM radio from the high-performance Supertuner IIID tuner. A separate CD drive in the unit provides playback of most compact discs, MP3 and WMA CDs, all with maximum power (MOSFET50) and sound performance (Easy EQ). The system is compatible with Pioneer’s iPod® adapter (CD-IB100) for those who want to listen to music stored on their iPod while in the car.
XM NavTraffic™ Ready
XM NavTraffic™* powered by NAVTEQ Traffic allows Pioneer Navigation Systems to serve as a powerful tool that helps the driver understand traffic conditions and routes the driver to their destination avoiding traffic congestion. using the available GEX-P10XMT XM NavTraffic Satellite Radio Tuner, the traffic information is provided through a continuous satellite broadcast as XM NavTraffic™, with data which is aggregated by NAVTEQ Traffic from multiple sources — including leading commercial traffic data providers, government departments of transportation, police and emergency services, road sensors, cameras and airborne reports. If there is a traffic jam on the route to your destination, the Navigation System will automatically alert you of the traffic ahead, and suggest any alternate route found by the unit.
* Requires XM radio subscription and XM NavTraffic™ service subscriptions sold separately.
Enhanced Graphical XM Audio Interface
When combined with the GEX-P10XMT, the AVIC-D1 features a new user-friendly interface with specific icons for channels and categories. Each of more than 120 XM Radio channels comes with a specific icon. This ensures easy channel identification, especially when searching with the “List Search” function. Channel categories also come with specific icons, for intuitive selection among corresponding channels. Up to 12 favorite songs on XM Radio can be registered using the "MEMO" key. If a registered song is playing on another channel. a notification will pop up and ask if you would like to change to the channel currently playing the song.
Rear View Camera Capability
Keep an eye on your backside using the optional Rear View Camera (ND-BC1). Two rear-view modes are offered: while you’re in reverse the rear-view camera can be in full screen. Or while moving forward, you can also see what’s behind you with the rear-view split screen, which displays both the navigation map and the rear-view camera image.
Roadside Assistance Display
The AVIC-D1 ensures extremely easy access to roadside assistance information. The unit shows emergency phone numbers and your current location — by street name, city, and state, plus longitude and latitude. The units also display any personal information you've entered, including vehicle identification number, insurance number, and insurance company phone number. There is even a dedicated icon for easily locating the nearest car dealer. Additionally, 1-Year Emergency Roadside Assistance Service is offered free of charge*.
