Pioneer Electronics Drives Excitement With New Technologies At Mid America Truck Show

Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc., a world leader in mobile entertainment technologies, will showcase a variety of products at the Mid America Truck Show (MATS), the largest national and international truck show of the year. Pioneer will highlight various in-vehicle technologies that provide information and entertainment for trucking professionals who spend the majority of their time on the road, traveling more than 400 billion miles a year.

“The trucking community is a crucial component to our economics and they consider their trucks their home on the road. Pioneer can enhance their on-the-road experience with entertainment and information products that we will demonstrate at this year's MATS event,” said Michael Townsen, vice president of marketing for mobile entertainment at Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “Attendees will be able to play with our products and witness the power of the AVIC-N1 system in particular, which offers enhanced navigation features as well as DVD entertainment.”

AVIC-N1: Pioneer Electronics’ AVIC-N1 system, will be a welcome addition to any rig on the road. As the industry's first true audio/video/navigation system, it merges entertainment, information and vehicle dynamics technologies into one product making life on the road bearable and more pleasurable. With more than 12 million points of interest available across the U.S. and Canada the AVIC-N1 offers drivers more information about their intended routes. They can easily locate essential information such as rest stops, ATMs, hotels, restaurants and gas stations. While providing step-by-step navigational information through voice prompts and an electronic map, the AVIC-N1 also monitors everything from lateral G-Force to angular velocity and includes a rear camera input that enables drivers to view activity at the rear of the vehicle. In addition, the AVIC-N1 supports XM satellite radio, plays CDs, MP3 CDs and DVD video for backseat passengers or for drivers at roadside rest stops. The AVIC-N1 is available for a suggested retail price of $2200.
