Pioneer AVIC-F500BT

It's not the destination; it's how you get there that counts. Pioneer's first dash-mounted navigation and entertainment system gets you there in style — without your having to rip out your factory-installed stereo. Just connect it to your car radio's auxiliary port; the F500BT gives you voice control over your cell phone and an Apple iPod via Bluetooth connections. A 5.8-inch touch-panel display offers big, easy-to-read maps, along with turn-by-turn directions and all of the other things you expect from a world-class GPS device.
