"Virtually no short-comings with the AVIC-S1"4.5 starson by famu97
Pros: Brilliant Screen, Thin & Lightweight, Touch Screen, SD Card Slot, Very Intuative Menus, Bluetooth, & Overall Great Design
Cons: No Phone # POI Search, Can't Sync or Add Contacts out of the box
Summary: I love this little device. I'd even love it if I hadn't gotten it free with the Pinooner in-dash DVD Nav' Promotion. this portable GPS has everything. Voice navigation prompts, lots of granular settings for Map display options, Bluetooth, compact, lightweight, Auto Map Zoom, etc. If you want it on a hand-held GPS, this one has it. This GPS even had my new subdivision addresses where my wife's in-dash Pioneer Nav unit did not. All the options & settings are perfect, the size and clarity of the screen is outstanding. It comes with all the needed accessories too (vehicle charger, USB cable, AC charger, & carrying case. The one thing I don't like is that I can't do a Points of Interest Search by telephone #'s and that it won't allow me to sync my contacts in Outlook out of the box so that I can use it to dial people via Bluetooth. I assume I need to have an SD mem card in order for that feature to work which I don't have.
