"average for the money"3.0 starson by tmagness
Pros: easy to use touchscreen
Cons: no updates yet available, trouble aquiring satalites, sometimes slow
Summary: When I first purchased this unit (Dec 06/$500) it was an excellent unit. Now Pioneer said they would have updates available (for purchase) on SD card in Sep of 07. However, they now say there is no estimated time for these updates to become available. My boyfriend bought a Tom Tom One about 6 months ago, for $300 and all his updates are FREE. His connects right to the computer for all available updates and optional features. The AVIC-S1 does have bluetooth capabilities that work with more phones than the TomTom.
