With all the talk lately about the new safety features of the AVIC I though I would put a poll up. Incase some of you don't know, Pioneer made it extremely difficult to watch video while drive by integrating the NAV's gyro into the system making nearly impossible to watch dvds while driving. Unfortunately for some it also effects some of the NAV functions.

Not to mention not everyone who views the board has an opinion, I did, but someone just trying to get a wiring diagram and is going through the forum might not have any idea what you're talking about... I personally think that the concept is cool, kinda disapointing for most people, and for the most part I think it will hurt their sales. I voted NO because it hurts the NAV, I actually have a buddy that ordered the player for the NAV feature and also so his kids could watch movies. He was disapointed with both features and has since sent the unit back.

Well you know I voted auex, that should be a given. I am curious though to one thing. What other company encourages people to bypass safety features? Pioneer is catching a lot of grief for something that everyone else does. Until this year it was easy to bypass, but obviously that has changed. I have been in this business for a long time and I am yet to see a company want people to bypass this feature. The other thing is this. Who else is making a unit close to the features of the N2 for the same price? Are people really going to be willing to spend the extra money to buy brand "x"'s model because of the video playback?
And finally what makes me laugh is that people are buying this and THEN finding out it won't "work" the way they want it to. Why are the retailers not telling the customer this on the front side? My dealers know because I beat it in their heads. They're not happy about it, but they know. It is the job of the person selling this item to inform someone of the new update. I can see the return rate on this thing getting out of control if people don't sell this right.

Since I would not buy one in the first place, I don't see the need of havng a video system in a car but thats beside the point

Id would have to say that everyone should take pioneer's example and make sure there DVD units not work while your driving
Now the Navagation is a whole separate issue, while yes its a good convenience to have Im more of theáold school train of thoughtáthat one should pull the hell over and buy a mapáread it and memorize where you have to go

Theres my take on it

I know, I was just trying to inspire/piss off the members that weren't voting.

This is like the biggest thing to shake the 12volt world in a while. I'm just thinking how much Pioneers putting their neck out. It might set a example for other manufacturers, who knows... Indashs might soon become a thing of the past???
