Hybrid Navigation, Communication & Entertainment System


A gateway to navigation, entertainment and communication.

NavGate: Custom-fit navigation, entertainment and communication for your car Add fast, accurate and reliable navigation features and extended entertainment options to your car without having to change your existing audio system.

Designed to integrate with virtually any factory audio system, NavGate "sits" on your dashboard, relaying route guidance, ‘phone conversations and audio through your car speakers, acting as a
gateway to bring you:

  • Reliable, accurate navigation with traffic alerts (TMC)
  • A Parrot Bluetooth module, to give you wireless, safe phone use whilst driving
  • A complete entertainment hub with iPod (compatible from generations October 2005 onwards), USB and SD-card compatibility
  • Increased safety with voice guidance and Text-To-Speech support

The AVIC-F500BT will get you to your destination safely. The high-resolution 5.8-inch touch screen with large, intuitive menu items makes operation quick and easy. And of course, the screen is portable (with battery included). So you can switch between cars, too.

The system can also be linked to your home PC via our freely downloadable NavGate Feeds software, enabling you to create and add your own points of interest via SD or USB.

The AVIC-F500BT acts as a complete entertainment hub with multiple A/V inputs and is able to play audio and video files. You can connect your iPod, USB stick or a wide range of multimedia players; even video files recorded to an SD card.

Make and receive calls wirelessly, too. The AVIC-F500BT includes a Parrot Bluetooth phone interface. Your mobile phone can be left anywhere in your car and your contacts will be displayed and accessible via the touch screen. Conversations are relayed in crystal clarity by your car speakers.

All audio - including the sound of the original car radio - is amplified by our highly regarded external 4 X 50W MOSFET amplifier ND-G500 and delivered through the car speakers. Better sound without having to change your existing system.

The AVIC-F500BT upgrades your existing car audio setup with best-of-brand navigation and versatile connection options. Powerful, versatile and compact.
