Virtually any location, such as camping grounds, ski resorts, stadiums or tourist destinations, can be created as points of interest. You simply make a note of the address details in a CSV format file and NavGate Feeds searches for them via a web search, converting the data so it can be read by your sat nav system.
    Create driving reports, particularly useful if you need to calculate your travel expenses in a given period, this application will keep track and provide you with an overview of all the journeys you’ve made and the number of kilometres travelled.
    You can also see how economically you have been driving. Eco Drive gives you an evaluation of your acceleration and brake data and also calculates your CO2 emissions. You can then view a graphical representation of this data on your PC. (only on selected models)

    Notes:

    * Pioneer cannot guarantee the future compatibility of our products with any iPod (or iPod firmware update) which is released after the Pioneer product release.
    * The compatibility information is based on the above-mentioned firmware version.
    * iPod shuffle is not supported. Only iPods with a “30-pin Dock Connector” are connectable.

  • Supported Functions • Battery charging
    • List browsing
    • Music playback
    • Video playback
    • Album art transfer
  • MusicSphere (+) Yes

    MusicSphere is a unique iTunes plug-in that matches your music to your mood.

    When installed, MusicSphere analyses your entire iPod, iPod Touch, or iPhone music library and creates specialised playlists based on various musical attributes such as:

    • feeling (bright, energetic, gloomy, relaxing, calm),
    • rhythm pattern,
    • Beats Per Minute (BPM),
    • year of the song or
    • date added to the device.

    Once your iPod, iPhone or iPod Touch device has been synced with the MusicSphere playlists and is connected to one of our 2010 NavGate systems, up to 40 specialised playlists can be accessed through an animated 3D sphere which can be rotated up, down, left and right with a slight touch of the screen.

  • Expandability

    • RCA AV Input 2 rear-in mini jack
    • RCA AV Rear Output 1
    • RCA Pre-Outs (+) 3 (F + R + S/W)

      RCA pre-outs enable you to easily expand your sound system. Depending on whether your NavGate unit comes with 1 or 3 RCA pre-outs, you can customise your sound system with separate amplifiers for the front speakers, the rear speakers and/or the subwoofer.

      The RCA pre-outs let you create the exact sound you want, with the focus on complete flexibility.

    • SD Card Input Yes (behind slide-down front panel)
    • USB Input Yes (rear input cable included)

    • Direct Sub Drive Yes
    • Hard Wired Remote Ready Yes
    • High Voltage Output (+) 4V

      By providing a strong signal with less noise and more definition, the high-volt pre-outs reduce demand on an amplifier’s input circuit, so it can work with lower gain settings. This results in improved sound quality and a wider dynamic range.
