updated 05:25 pm EDT, Tue October 3, 2006

Pioneer In-Car Mega Deck

Pioneer is considered a champion of advanced car audio and video, but its newest equipment, announced today at Japan's CEATEC, could rightly be considered its crowning achievement. The new AVIC line of in-car media systems support almost every feature sought after by drivers and passengers alike. The 7-inch touchscreen is host to DVD and DivX video playback, GPS mapping, and terrestrial broadcast TV; it's also used to control the extensive amount of music playback options. Besides playing standard audio CDs and radio, Pioneer's new head-end unit can play AAC, MP3, or WMA CDs and can transfer songs from those discs to a built-in 30GB hard drive. It can even record CDs in ATRAC3 format and will soon have an iPod adapter for owners not tied to discs. Understandably, Pioneer is including a remote with this flagship deck and will give it a premium price of $3649 US when it ships to Japan later in October. No details of a US version were announced.
