Pioneer’s AVIC-X1R
Europe’s most powerful integrated Navigation and Entertainment System

Pioneer has launched the AVIC-X1R – an enhanced version of its award-winning* AVIC-X1 – Europe ’s most powerful integrated entertainment and navigation system. Covering 22 of the continent’s countries in intricate detail, the AVIC-X1R combines pin-point positioning, turn by turn route guidance and state of the art entertainment features to transform the driving experience.

AVIC-X1RThanks to Pioneer’s unique Memory Navigation feature the AVIC-X1R simultaneously manages navigation and entertainment functions. So once a route is uploaded, the map disc can be replaced by a DVD enabling the rear seat occupants to watch a movie while the driver follows the directions and along with the front passenger listens to the radio.

Each aspect of the product makes drivers’ lives easier and more enjoyable. A large, motorised, 6.5” screen makes maps clear and easy to read. The touch panel user interface is intuitive and clearly laid out. The traffic information receiver (TMC) picks up the latest traffic information and if congestion is reported, offers the driver alternative routes to the destination.

As expected from the industry’s leading car audio manufacturer, the unparalleled navigation features of the AVIC-X1R are complemented by a high-end range of car entertainment features. The system includes a built-in DVD-Video/ MP3 CD player, D4Q, Pioneer’s renowned digital AM/FM Tuner and a MOSFET50 high-quality audio amplifier. And it can be expanded with sources such as DAB radio, CD changer, DVD changer and TV tuner as well as the latest option from Pioneer, an interface to the popular Apple iPod portable music player.

AVIC-X1R“The AVIC-X1R is both a very well specified entertainment system and hugely powerful navigation tool that will help you find your way safely, re-route when you take a wrong turning and ensure that you miss trouble spots. At the same time, it will keep driver and passengers entertained on long journeys with the option of playing music in the front or DVD-Video for the kids in the rear. It’s the best way to beat the traffic queues and travel efficiently and safely” comments Geert Verhoeven, new product planning manager, Pioneer Europe NV.

The AVIC-X1R now offers 31 of Pioneer’s unique ‘City Maps*’ feature. At least two major conurbations are covered per country to provide drivers with a detailed view of the road ahead. Drivers can select from six different on-screen viewing options. And for those who like to assess their and their car’s progress, the AVIC-X1R's vehicle dynamics monitor provide a taste of motor sport action. From acceleration to cornering force, turn rate and incline readings, the AVIC-X1R delivers instantaneous performance analysis through analogue and digital gauges on the LCD monitor.

AVIC-X1RWith its customised wall paper feature, drivers can tailor the AVIC-X1R’s display so that photographs and images can replace the pre-set screen images on the touch panel screen.

The AVIC-X1R connects into the standard car radio installation space (DIN sized). The attractive touch panel display folds into the dashboard to appear as a radio unit whenever the car is unattended. Security is further enhanced by a faceplate that can be removed to help prevent unwanted attention.
