The Pioneer AVIC-F500BT is a fully featured in-car entertainment, satellite navigation (Sat-Nav) and mobile phone hands-free kit in one. It sits on your dashboard and works along side you car's existing audio/stereo system, so there's no need to make any big changes to your car.

With more features than you can shake a stick at, the AVIC F500BT features a 5.8" colour, touch-screen interface which gives you easy control over its many functions. Firstly there is fantastic media playback; you can play MP3, WMA (Windows Media Audio), AAC (iTunes) and WAV music files, and even MPEG-4 and AVI movie files from either compatible USB memory sticks/flash drives, or from SD/SDHC memory cards plugged into the handy side slot. You can also attach other audio devices such as iPods and portable MP3 players to the system using its side stereo minijack connection. Secondly the AVICF500BT gives you a sophisticated Sat-Nav system with 2D or 3D display, traffic information and clear voice guidance. Finally, On top of all this, there's also integrated Bluetooth so you can connect compatible mobile phones, allowing you to make and receive calls through you car's audio system and the AVIC-F500BT's built-in microphone, plus control your phone from the easy to use touch-screen interface. You can even transfer you phone's contact information to the F500BT for easy dialling.

The package contains an impressive MOSFET 4 channel amplifier (ND-G500), the AVIC-F500BT main unit and a handy dashboard-mounting cradle. The amp acts a gateway between your car's existing audio system and your car's speakers, so it can also improve the quality of your existing system too.

If you want to take your music and video collection out on the road with you, take the effort out of navigation, and easily make hands-free phone calls, the Pioneer AVIC-F500BT is a simple, elegant solution to all your needs.

Because this system requires fitting to your car's existing audio system, we recommend that you check the amplifier manual below to determine if it is suitable for use in your car.

P.S. It's a double din stereo if you hadn't guessed, so will need a double-sized slot in your car!


It works alongside your current existing system so doesn't need a double din slot.

199 from amazon, so-so reviews.
#4
good system but looking at the spec even if you did have a double din slot this has to work with the existing car audio unit could be wrong
#5
Hot price!
#6
Anyone know how easy this is to install in an Astra VXR?

Cheers.

Good for those that like those "sticky outty things"
#10
Is the navigation any good?
#11
Looks good. Not a bad price either for features provided IMO.
#12
Pioneer offers one of the poorest sat nav services.

Go for kenwood which offers garmin.
#13
satnav looks a bit like igo8 which if it is,is very good
#14
Not bad
#15

I bought it about two months ago. It's got all functions (Bluetooth mobile pairing, Media player which can be connected to your car audio system, Pioneer Amp, SatNav with lane assist, SD card and USB port, optional reverse camera connection) you will find at a more expensive system. All the functions work but not brilliantly. The OS is based on a version of Window CE. Connection to the existing car audio system is very easy (at least for me. May be my car audio system is also Pioneer). You just need to follow the instruction comes with the amplifier. The photo shown at the post #2 is a bit misleading. You cannot attach the satnav in front of the vent. You can either attach it to the wind screen using a suction mount or stick on the dashboard (if your dashboard is flat enough) using supplied double sided sticker. Hope this will help someone considering to buy.

This unit works WITH your original stereo - It isn't actually a stereo - it interfaces between the loom of your original stereo so you will also need to buy T harness adaptors to fit or cut wires!

To be honest - A portable nav like a garmin or tomtom would be a cheaper & much easier unit to fit. Also you can take the portable nav out of your car without leaving wiring and brackets visible...

I think this concept is a bit silly... Anyone disagree?

The unit itself is a stand alone stereo although the sound quality is not very impressive. It's got a built-in speaker. You can play music and video without connecting to the car stereo. Yes, it is not as small as a portable SatNav. But it's portable. You can take it with you. The wiring is very simple. For me I do not need to buy additional adaptors (My car stereo is a Pioneer). Just need to connect the amp between the unit and car stereo using connectors and cables provided with the amp. No need to cut any wires. Only one cable goes to the wind screen mount cradle. You can disconnect it and remove the mount very easily. It takes less than one minute to set it up.

This SatNav's also got embedded RDS-TMC tuner which give current traffic conditions and information. When the navigation system receives updated traffic information, it will overlay the information on your map and also display detailed text information when available.

Looks nice and am tempted but then again i already have an alpine 9812rb HU and GPS.
