The Pioneer…[whoa, time out, time out. Whose clever dick idea was that headline? Eh? Speak up. Yours chum? Well you’re fired, now get out. And stop snivelling, OK?]… Right, where were we? Oh yes. The Pioneer AVIC HD1BT Hard Drive Sat Nav Entertainment System. The first vehicle sat nav system which can ‘intelligently recognise and store your frequently-used journeys’. Plus it will also hold 160 hours of music on the hard drive which you control by voice. Neato. Now, who’s going to explain to their marketing dept. that there’s little point in storing frequently-used journeys, because you probably…ahem…know how to drive them already? Ah well.
It’s the first navigation system to intelligently recognise and store your frequently-used journeys (so no need to re-input regular routes), and covers 26 countries, detailing 3.2 million points of interest (with selected contact numbers), whilst re-routing you to avoid traffic congestion. You also have the ability to store up to 160 hours of music on the system’s Hard Disk Drive and select them by voice; control a mobile phone hands-free and be entertained through a versatile range of music formats – including the content of your iPod.
