Our take on the Pioneer AVIC-Z110BT

by Ken Nail
Pioneer

Why install a car stereo with built-in GPS?

Imagine taking a trip as your car's receiver gives you directions, finds the best restaurant for dinner, and plays movies for your back seat denizens. Navigation receivers cover all the bases, with GPS guidance, DVD playback, and a host of other useful features. You can search through millions of points of interest to locate gas stations, restaurants, museums, and other interesting spots, wherever you are. Most receivers offer Bluetooth capability for hands-free calling, along with the ability to search through your iPod playlists with touchscreen controls.

You can have it all

angled shot You'll find a motorized touchscreen up front and an extensive array of connections on the back, but Pioneer built the AVIC-Z110BT for performance all the way through. This versatile receiver will bring you the best in audio, video, and navigation, without compromise.

Powerful navigation with voice control

The AVIC-Z110BT guides you with detailed maps of Canada and the entire U.S., stored on built-in flash memory so you won't have to insert a disc when you need directions. Find the services you need from over 12 million points of interest, while brand icons help you find the right gas station or fast food spot. The system's text-to-speech function announces street names as you go, so you'll always know you're making the correct turn.

The navigator recognizes voice commands for address searches and points-of-interest category selection, so you'll spend less time punching buttons and more time getting on your way. Got an iPhone®? Pioneer has an app that lets you find a location with your iPhone, then transfer it to the AVIC-Z110BT for turn-by-turn directions. Search for "AVIC feeds" in the iTunes app store.


Hands-free phoning with voice control

Make hands-free calls easily with your compatible phone using the receiver's built-in Bluetooth® capability. Pioneer's Conversational Voice Control voice-recognition software understands your casual request to make a phone call, prompting you for additional information when required.

Built-in Bluetooth

Voice control for your iPod®

Plug your iPod into the optional Pioneer CD-IU50V adapter and you can also use voice commands to search for music by artist, album, genre, and playlist. Song info and album art appear on the screen, giving you the information you want, while offering easy control through the touchscreen.

The AVIC-Z110BT covers the bases with your other media too. It plays CDs and DVDs, including discs burned with MP3, WMA, and AAC files. Flash media is covered with the USB input and SD™ card slot. You can use them for MP3, WMA, and AAC files, as well as Windows Media™ Video (WMV) files and MPEG4 videos.


Audio control

Sound quality is stellar, with a 24-bit digital-to-analog converter that delivers smooth, natural sound. For sound tweaking, explore the possibilities of the 7-band graphic equalizer, frequency filters, and 3-level loudness control.


Video and other entertainment options

Check out your video DVDs on the receiver's screen when you're parked, or connect a rear-seat video screen to the video output so your passengers can enjoy the show while you drive. The dual-zone feature allows them to watch one program while you listen to another source up front. Plug in a rear-view camera to the dedicated input for extra safety when backing up in tight spaces.

Connect audio sources through the USB input, SD card slot, or audio/video inputs. Tap into the variety of SIRIUS/XM radio with a satellite radio tuner, or add Pioneer's HD Radio™ tuner to enjoy the crystal-clear sound and extra programming from participating stations.


Note: Bluetooth compatibility with this receiver may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check Hands-on Research for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

    Display Features

    Video Display: This unit is equipped with a fixed 7" color TFT active matrix, widescreen LCD that serves as a video monitor and system information display. The display has a 16:9 aspect ratio, and a resolution of 800 x 480 for a total of 384,000 pixels. The brightness of the video display can be adjusted for best visibility.

    Note: To prevent displaying video while the vehicle is in motion, the light green wire in the supplied 16-pin harness must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. While the vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view all of the other displays and menus.

    Touch Screen Controls: This unit has touch screen controls with interactive video graphics, making menu navigation easy. The screen is non-glare and smudge-resistant.

    Illumination Color Adjustment: The color of the button illumination can be set to virtually any color you desire. You can select from 8 preset colors, or choose a continuous scan of the 8 default colors. You can also create up to 3 custom colors and save them in memory. To create a custom color, you can select a value of between 00 and +31 of Red, Green, and Blue (except for R00, G00, B00). This gives you a choice of 32,767 colors.

    Voice Recognition: Pioneer's voice command system accepts and recognizes conversational phrases and language and translates them into commands. You don't have to memorize a list of preset commands in order to operate the unit. The system intelligently filters out superfluous sounds and phrases to accurately recognize the request. If you don't give enough information in the command, the unit will ask additional questions to clarify the request, rather than rejecting it. You can use voice commands to set a navigation destination, control the DVD/CD, control your iPod, make a hands-free phone call on your Bluetooth phone, or change the A/V input.

    Navigation

    Flash Memory Navigation: Pioneer has taken the entire TeleAtlas database, which previously required two DVDs, and compressed it into a 4 GB internal flash memory. The maps cover the entire United States (including Alaska and Hawaii), Canada, and Puerto Rico. The database provides approximately 12-million points-of-interest (POIs) in various categories throughout the coverage area. You can search for a POI near your current location, near your destination, or near a specific city.

    Positioning Technology: The AVIC-Z110BT accurately measures your current location by the Global Positioning System, a network of satellites orbiting the earth to give you time and position information. The accuracy of the GPS information depends upon how good the reception is. The unit has a 32-channel GPS receiver with a magnetic antenna included. The AVIC-Z110BT also features a speed sensing cable for better accuracy of your vehicle's movement.

    Voice Guidance/Text to Speech: In addition to graphical on-screen directions and maps, the AVIC-Z110BT provides voice guidance and turn-by-turn directions. You can choose a male or female voice in English, French, or Spanish. Some of the voices are capable of text-to-speech, announcing the street names along with the turn directions.

    AVIC Feeds: You can create custom Points of Interest (POIs) by using the AVIC Feeds utility program, available on the Pioneer website (pioneerelectronics.com). Once created, you can store the POI on an external storage device, such as a USB thumb drive or SD card, and upload the information to the unit. Other AVIC Feeds applications include Driving Report and Picture Editor.

    MSN Direct Tuner: The AVIC-Z110BT is compatible with the optional ND-MDT10 MSN Direct tuner (item number 130NDMDT10) MSN Direct allows you to see updated traffic conditions, local and world weather, local gas prices (along with when they were updated), theater locations and movie times, local events, news headlines, and stock quotes. When the navigation system receives updated traffic information, it will overlay the traffic information on your map and also display detailed text information when available. The navigation system will take into account the traffic information and try to avoid traffic jams and suggest better routes. This service is available for a fee through the MSN Direct data subscription service.

    Note: If you subscribe to MSN Direct and add an HD Radio tuner, the 12040UV44 antenna Y-adapter is needed. MSN Direct service will be available only until January 1, 2012.

    Audio Section

    CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the AVIC-Z110BT are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs for the AVIC-Z110BT are as follows:

    • CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N), 91 dBA S/N (reference: 1 watt into 4 ohms)
    • Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (or 50 watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)

    7-Band Graphic Equalizer: This unit is equipped with a 7-band EQ; you can adjust each frequency band +/- 12dB in 2dB intervals. The bands' center frequencies are 50Hz, 125Hz, 315Hz, 800Hz, 2kHz, 5kHz, and 12.5kHz.

    EQ Presets: There are 7 preset EQ curves: Super Bass, Powerful, Natural, Vocal, Flat, Custom 1, and Custom 2. The two Custom curves allow you to create and store EQ settings in memory. You can create a separate Custom 1 curve for each source, while the same Custom 2 curve is used for all sources.

    Adjustable Loudness: You can select one of three different levels of loudness compensation. A Low loudness contour provides +3.5dB boost at 100Hz and +3dB boost at 10kHz. A Mid boost is +10dB at 100Hz and +6.5dB at 10kHz. A High loudness contour is +11dB at both 100Hz and 10kHz.

    Note: These Loudness contours use a reference volume level of -30dB.

    Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Settings are based on the volume level of the FM tuner, which remains unchanged.

    High-Pass Filter: When you don't want sound in the subwoofer frequency range output from the front and rear speakers, activate the built-in high-pass filter. You can select a filter frequency of 50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, or 125Hz with a slope of 12dB per octave. The high-pass filter effects the line and speaker level outputs.

    Subwoofer Preouts: In addition to the front and rear preamp outputs, there is one set of subwoofer outputs that may be turned on or off. When on, the outputs are non-fading, and may be set for normal or reverse phase. The built-in low-pass filter frequency can be set to 50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, or 125Hz. The level of the subwoofer output can be adjusted between -24 to +6. The low-pass filter has a slope of 18dB per octave.

    Bass Boost: The Bass Boost function raises the level of low frequency sounds; select the desired level of bass boost between 0 and 6 (Gain: 0dB to +12dB).

    AM/FM Tuner

    Supertuner IIID AM/FM Tuner: The Supertuner IIID features Feed Forward Control, which avoids multi-path interference. This pre-detection of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion. In addition, the Supertuner IIID creates enhanced stereo during multi-path interference, unlike conventional tuners that collapse to mono.

    Multimedia Playback

    Disc Compatibility: The AVIC-Z110BT has a single DVD slot that is compatible with DVD-Video and audio CDs, as well as DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-R DL, CD-R, and CD-RW discs.

    Great unit, things still to be desired

    Written By adam, Las Vegas, NV on Sunday, May 02, 2010
     
    I got this unit & had it installed in my 06 Audi A4 Cabrio. I upgraded from my factory 08 RNS-E nav unit which was so archaic in design & function. The reasons I got this was to be able to have an iPod input+HD Radio+touchscreen+cd changer+phone blue-tooth. There of course are other features but those were my main attractors. Unbelievable how archaic & difficult Audis factory units are..guess theyre focused on building a great mechanical machine which is fine..i digress..my main burning irritation is that this Pioneer Avic z110bt DOESNT support a CD CHANGER! They consider them archaic. Im an audiophile so yeah I still use CDs. Anyway there are a lot of lil things I wish this unit had but I dont have a list right now. One thing is when yer using bluetooth phone, u cant access the dialpad, so as long as u dont have to go thru automated menus yer good. I really do feel the design of the menus etc is excellent as it is logical & doesnt take more than 3 taps to get where u want. Good design. The nav is also very good IMO. Wish it had free traffic info. Lot of things I like about it but not enough room here to list. One other major disappointment is the voice cmd..its SO crappy at understanding u no matter how loud & clear u talk or yell, & the voice sounds like a late 80s robot I had to program in highschool as a kid. Im trying to contact Pioneer about getting a software patch to unlock the CD Changer input which IS possible. Ill update this post about that soon..

    Simply, this unit does everything! But the real story here is Crutchfield support. The installation of this unit is not for the faint of heart. In our case, the speed pulse wire was not were it was suppose to be. Stellar support from Crutchfield made this installation happen. Thanks guys.

    Very Bad Choice

    Written By martin, Bethlehem, PA on Thursday, February 25, 2010
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I bought this unit because of all the features and specs described. The first problem that I had was a automatic reboot of the unit. the second problem was the vehicle on the gps was somehow out of the route and into any field adjacent to the road. the first time this happen, I pulled into the side of 78W to turn off the car and then turn it back on. Very outrage, I send the unit back to pioneer for correction-their answer was could not duplicate the problem. Using sirius sat radio some of the features does not work as advertise. I called help support and the tech reconmended to purchase another sirius radio in order to the features that they advertise.

    The system keep rebooting itself and going out of track. very very frustrating with this unit.

    The next thing that happens was the gps screen went completely blank and could not see anything but a blank screen. I returned the unit again for service. They replaced various parts including the screen or main display. Since then, the system was fine until it reboot itself again. This time, I am not calling, sending the unit back or anything else. I decided to take a huge loss of about $ 2,000.00 of equipment purchased. I am just very frustrating about the whole thing. Unfortunately, my wife is the one feeling the backslash because she sees me mad and pist off with not answer at all.

    FROM 1 TO 5. 5 BEEN THE BEST, I WILL RATE THIS UNIT A -25.

    Great Unit, but with some quirks

    Written By David, Clarksville, TN on Wednesday, January 20, 2010
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is a great system, no one can contest that. However there are a few minor quirks that I wish I'd have known about.

    First of all, if you think this is the greatest navigation system out there, think again. The menus are a little awkward which is a pain if you are driving. Before I had this I had bought a $160 Garmin, which sat on my dashboard. It is a better navigation unit in almost every way with the exception of the screen size. It seems to find what I'm looking for easier, does text to speech for the street names, and even adjusts for when you cross over time zones (the Pioneer does none of these things)

    The Garmin also has a free service to give traffic updates which are pretty accurate, whereas the Pioneer you must buy a separate device and a service (which is being discontinued in like a year)

    Other than the navigation, the unit is wonderful and the voice commands are accurate like 90% of the time.

    If you want a box that does everything under the sun, this is the one. The only non outstanding feature is the navigation which I can very much deal with given the other services it fulfills.

    Pioneer AVIC-Z110BT

    Written By Steve, Portland, ME on Wednesday, January 13, 2010
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The unit works well, it has a ton of features on it. I'm very disipointed in the GPS. It is most of the time unable to locate any address in Maine. The tech support from Crutchfield is as always outstanding and everything else on the unit works well, but over all if I was going to do it over again I would by the Kenwood with Garmin GPS as there seems to be very little support from Pioneer on map updates. I called them and they just said sorry and sent me to the map data supplier whom also told me sorry!!!!! So, I was a little upset for spending this much to get the Oh well dont know what to tell you. What should I expect a GPS with my home street on it??????

    Pioneer AVIC-Z110BT

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I installed this in a Mazda5, replacing the stock system. I am very happy. Installation was quite easy, using the Crutchfield harness and installation products designed for my car. Once installed, I've found the nav component to be accurate and extremely quick to lock on to satellites. I've not had to plan any complex routes yet, but the tools are definitely there.

    VR works better than expected, which is nice. Sure, there is a limit to the available POIs, but I knew that going in. You can always create and upload your own using AvicFeeds.

    Telephone over bluetooth works as advertised, with excellent audio quality on both ends. Contacts sync without issue with my BlackBerry 9000.

    On the audio side, an ipod is my primary source, and performance is fine. I tend to use VR to access my playlists (I typically have upwards of 30 playlists on my ipod at one time) and that greatly helps things. Audio quality is great, though remember, you're in a noisy environment (a car) playing what is usually lossy source material (ipod or similar). Still, it sounds excellent, even when driving my OEM speakers with the onboard amp.

    Bottom line, I am happy with the set-up, and highly recommend it.

    Great - but:

    Written By powertop, Los Gatos California on Friday, December 04, 2009
     
    It is overall a great unit as others have said. However, it has 2 annoying issues. The first is the Hands Free feature does not work with an Iphone 3Gs. Their VR doesn't understand anything when it comes to the voice dialing using the 3Gs Iphone. The other issue is in their contact list - they have tabs that have about 4-5 alphabets per tab. Every time you touch a tab - you only get the first letter of the tab. If you hit the "ABCDE" tab you only get the "A" contacts and you have to scroll down to the other letters of the tab. If you have a lot of contacts - you can scroll and scroll. A real pain. They should make a fix that every time you hit the same tab - it goes to the next letter. Other than those 2 issues - it is great but I feel cheated that I can not use the hands free for dialing. It does work great on other phones just not the 3G.

    Save the money, buy a Avic-910BT

    Written By phil, Greensboro NC on Monday, November 16, 2009
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I have owned Pioneer for years. Last model was the Pioneer Z3, should have kept it. We have a Avic-710BT and a Avic-910BT. Just have added another Pioneer to our Mustang which is used for car shows for our business. The Z110BT lacks and bought this item when it first come out, waste of money, should have bought another Avic-910BT. Love the Avic-910BT and cannot still find out the reason I paid this much for a system that really does not have the items. Maps and ease of use of the 910BT is nicer than the Avic-110BT. Called Pioneer about this and pretty much told me to wait for the next model. The main thing Pioneer needs to work on the NAV for the 110BT. The 910BT has gives more street names and the touch screen has more functions that you don't have to exit and go out then come back. SAVE YOUR MONEY and buy the Pioneer Avic- 910BT.

    Great Option

    Written By Goldfish, TX on Tuesday, October 13, 2009
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The Avic Z110BT is an excellent touch screen navigation option for people
    comparing this both to other aftermarket units and high quality factory units.
    Installation and set up was very simple and the unit works incredibly quickly to
    find routes. In addition, it boots up very quickly relative to many of the
    stand alone GPS units and the back up camera is available within a couple of
    seconds of the power being switched on. Route calculation happens quickly and
    adjusts almost instantly to changes (as opposed to my old garmin which would
    shout "recalculating" at you for 10 minutes). I will agree with another poster,
    though, in saying that the voice control function isn't very accurate at times.
    However, at least in my vehicle, the placement of the unit and its large screen
    make it just as simple to just press the screen to make a call or find a POI.
    Bluetooth pairing was simple and it automatically syncs contacts whenever I step
    into the car which is nice. Screen quality is very good and it stays relatively
    clean despite it being a touch screen Overall, this is a great unit for people
    who want to have all the features available for in dash units and an easy to use
    interface.

    AWESOME!!!

    Written By MICHAEL, OCEAN SPRINGS, MS on Sunday, October 04, 2009
     
    This unit is nearly flawless. It is well designed and a pleasure to use. The recently released AVIC FEEDS iPhone app is a wonderful addition to the overall capabilities of this unit. Over the last 18 months I have owned the Pioneer AVIC-D3, Kenwood DNX8120, Pioneer AVIC-F90BT, Kenwood DNX9140, and now this unit. Out of all of those units I was never able to find complete satisfaction. This unit finally fulfills my needs.

    Solid Unit

    Written By Bob, Ann Arbor, MI on Wednesday, September 30, 2009
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Installed this in a new vehicle; had previously owned an AVIC-N1. Nice, bright screen, good touch response. The ability to set button color is cute, but it allowed me to match the shade used by the factory instrumentation which makes for a really nice-looking install. EQ offers a great range of adjustment and sound profiling to really fine-tune for your vehicle and taste - almost too much! The ability to set modified EQ levels for different sources is nice. Navigation is solid. The map, however, suffers from Pioneer's software in suburban/rural areas. When you zoom out to see just a bit farther, the logic erases everything it considers a secondary road - which in rural areas and some suburban areas means it erases almost all the roads (leaving you with the one line you're on). Bluetooth connectivity is solid both for voice and bluetooth audio, and the unit allows for wiring both an iPod and iPhone up and selecting between the two (or anything else). iPod controls are fantastic - very fast and responsive, very intuitive, work for iPod video just fine. Amp and subwoofer performance are also very good. On the weak side, the voice recognition is quite poor. I'd say it messes up the command about half the time (I'm a clear English speaker with the mike mounted well), and the user interface for voice is poorly designed (goes through multiple annoying confirmations for a call, and is slow to respond).

    Pioneer AVIC-Z110BT

    Written By Eugene, Los Angeles, CA on Monday, August 31, 2009
     
    I kept factory speakers but the sound is much more powerful and clearer with this unit. I have iPhone 3GS hooked up to this unit and they work smoothly. It provides direct sound link and recharges at the same time. Although you can only control the iPod function from the Pioneer, you can pretty much use all the iPod function from it. While the iPod is running in the background, you can still receive calls and use every other iPhone function at the same time! The unit is quick too. I don't have to wait to start up to get the rear view camera to work like my old unit. Right after starting the car and I put gear to reverse, the rear view camera is on immediately. The microphone with Parrot voice functions very well via the Bluetooth. The unit connects with iPhone automatically and quickly when I get in the car. Incoming calls are heard through the car speakers and my voice sounds pretty clear to the other party through the Pioneer microphone. The navigation is very accurate but I'm used to Garmin and I think the interface and search function is not as good as the Garmin. I used Nuvi 755T before. However, the turn warning distance meter and next next turn direction warning which lacks in Garmin is very much appreciated. Overall, this unit is very well designed and excellent in-dash Navigation with iPod hookup.
