My current radio is the base CD with cass tape, which works fine but I would like to put in one that had built in Navagation, Blue Tooth, DVD, Sat ready and reverse camera ready. I have done hours of searchs on the internet for review of radios and there is very little information out there. I have narrowed my choice down between the Pionner AVIC series (Z120BT) most likely and a few of the Kenwoods at this time.
My most important feature is hands free operation of my phone as I travel alot. It seems from the review I have found that Pionner has the upper hand in this area. Second would be navigation, (same reason) that gives you good route mapping. I would like to know what route it has picked before I start not just when I will arrive. Kenwood uses Garmin and I have a Garmin GPS now, but sometimes it take me thur areas I would rather not travel. It would be nice to have a list of the route, or an overall picture before starting.
From the reviews I have found most of the complaints are with the BT voice of the phone. Many say that they can hear the calling party fine, but their side of the conversation is lacking. I put 40K miles on my old truck last year, so I spend a lot of hours behind the wheel. I would love to have the Ford Sync system, but that's not an option on this year. If someone knows a system that works as good as Sync does I would really like to hear about it. That is one of the reasons for for the Z120BT, It sounds like it is close, but have not seen a working model.
What are your thoughts, or suggestions?
