The Pioneer AVIC-D3X navigation receiver package combines the AVIC-D3 DVD/navigation receiver with Pioneer's CD-i200 iPod and CD-BTB200 Bluetooth adapters. You'll enjoy music, movies, and in-dash navigation, with the added convenience of hands-free calling and access to your iPod's music library.

Pioneer designed the AVIC-D3 to sit flush with your double-sized, 4" tall dash opening just like a factory stereo. You can adjust the multi-color illumination to fit in with the lighting in your vehicle, and you also have the option of wiring the AVIC-D3 into your steering wheel controls for a convenient, factory feel.

Music and movies in your car
Use the 6.1" touchscreen and driver-oriented controls to enter navigation information or filter through music menus. The AVIC-D3 offers a full array of music and video entertainment options. The iPod controls give you music and video playback through the package's included direct cable connection. The screen will mimic familiar controls, so you can get to your favorite songs or videos with ease.

You can also play discs loaded with your favorite MP3, WMA, or AAC music files. The video-compatible front panel auxiliary input lets you connect everything from your camera to a satellite radio.

Precise navigation for accurate directions
Just load the map DVD into the receiver, choose your destination, and the memory navigation feature remembers your course and a few alternate routes. You can then remove the DVD and listen to music on a CD while still receiving directions. Once you're on your way, voice prompts through your car's speakers let you use your eyes to spot turns instead of constantly glancing down at the screen.

The included DVD-ROM gives you access to a large database with 11 million searchable points of interest. You can search by category or telephone number to find a destination when you have limited information.

Bluetooth® compatibility
If you have a Bluetooth phone, the included Pioneer Bluetooth adapter lets you use it hands-free through the AVIC-D3. Your audio will mute automatically when you're receiving a call, and you'll hear the caller through your stereo speakers. You can even stream A2DP audio from your phone through your speakers for an added music source.

XM NavTraffic™
Add a compatible XM NavTraffic radio and subscribe to XM's innovative NavTraffic service. You'll receive continuously updated traffic information in 40 major metropolitan areas, including traffic accident alerts, road closure info, plus the average speed of traffic on the roads along the route you're navigating. You'll be able to plot new routes around slow traffic or congestion to get where you need to go with little delay. NavTraffic is currently available in most major metropolitan areas.

Roadside Assistance
Pioneer also offers you a Roadside Assistance package that lets you access emergency contact information by pressing a button. The screen shows your exact location, including latitude and longitude readings, so you'll be able to direct emergency personnel. You also get an offer for a year's worth of free roadside assistance service from a national auto club.

    Pioneer AVIC-D3X Package

    Written By jonathan, Pflugerville, Texas on Sunday, January 25, 2009

    I upgraded to this unit from an Alpine sinlge din radio. It's not a bad unit but does lack somethings and is a little difficult to setup. The first thing it lacks that my alpine had is the ability to display Ipod art. I thought this unit did and it does not. A little disappointed in that. The eq is difficult to setup just right. Does not have a bass, treble, mid. It's an actual eq with different settings. Gps works fairly well when it wants to. Not to quick on turns and trying to find the right address can be a task. Bluetooth works good. Just won't transfer contacts from my Black berry bold. Still haven't figured out how to manually add contacts. I do recomend you have this professionally installed due to bluetooth and the gps/dvd. Overall it's not a bad unit but I wished I would have spent a little more money and got the Alpine double din.

    Good product

    Written By Jared, Tampa, FL on Sunday, July 20, 2008

    Overall this is a good product. The nav, dvd, blue tooth all work great.
    Finding a place to put the gps antenna was a little tricky (didn't want it outside the vehicle - saying hey look at me I have a nav sys) but found a great spot for it behind the unit under the dash.
    One thing I don't really care for is the fact that I have to control the video for the ipod from my ipod rather than from the unit itself.

    The Ipod functionality was a very important factor in choosing a unit, and I would still choose this one, despite the video drawback.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    although crutchfield supplies all the info needed to install this unit, i opted to have it done by my local shop. i have only had the manual out once because it is very simple to operate. the bluetooth works like a charm, as does the ipod adapter. before installing this unit, i had a rf ipod adapter and the xpressrc xm adapter. they both worked great, but after adding the hide-away xm receiver, everything is hidden away. do not hesitate to buy this unit if you get a chance. haven't used the navigation, except around town. BUY IT!!
    Don't spend $2000 for a stock cadillac navigation. i have the non-bose system, it sounds 10 times better now.

    Great Head Unit

    self installation was pretty well clear cut as always, with crutchfield
    provided materials, and included accessories. fitting the unit in the dash of
    my trailblazer took some demolition behind the dash in order to fit the unit
    and all the wiring. as a 10 year customer of crutchfield, they always
    impress. by far the best customer service ive
    had in some time. great unit, great service.

    Just installed this
    unit in my Subaru
    Baja. It looks like
    it came with the
    vehicle. Very
    clean install.
    Great features for a
    great price. Your
    not going to find

    without the free

    The NAV is still
    getting dialed in,
    but seems to be
    pretty accurate.
    The "extra" wiring
    that is not part of
    the main harness may
    require a little bit
    of work depending on
    the application. I
    had to disassemble
    quite a bit for some
    wires, but it still
    wasn't bad. Ipod
    controls are great.
    NAV memory feature
    lets you store your
    current destination,
    then go back to
    listening to regular

    cool. Very dynamic
    sound features. Buy
    with confidence.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Ok. So I'm not one to usually leave comments but I'm forced to because this stereo is Awesome!! Does everything it says it does and very well for that matter. Installing the system was a breeze in my 4runner only took me about 50min to install everything but the speed sensor cable. I had to call customer service for the location of that cable but was informed it wasn't necessary to operate and he was right! So far the GPS has been very accurate without tapping in to speed sensor. The only other thing was that the Bluetooth adapter worked with every phone but mine! I was afraid of this when purchasing because I have a windows mobile 6 phone (pantech duo) and read a lot of everyone else's comments. So. when calling customer service (and good customer service at that) I thought I would mention about my phone not being compatible. The "rep" or Chris informed me of an aftermarket Bluetooth software that may work, well sure enough it DID! I would definitely recommend this product.

    DVD, DIVX, is Great
    IPOD control is awsome, besides the ipod video part, I wish I had full control using my Pioneeer HU.
    GPS NAV. Its acceptable but not the best. The price is right for AVIC-D3, other HU around this price don't have NAV.. I prefer using my TomTom or Garmin.
    Bluetooth works pretty good, too bad my phone is not fully compatible.

    Installed this in my '06 Ford F150. The install was easy with the instructions from crutchfield. The navigation system works great, easy controls, vary versatile sound and function adjustments. You can adjust the accent colors of the buttons and background to mach you're vehicle's accent color. The bluetooth works great. It took a little bit to get it to work with my moto razor from Verizon. In all the system is a definite A+! Definitely recommend.

    Installed flawlessly........takes a few days for the GPS to tune into the perfect location of where you are.......this is it finds me within like 5 feet of my cars position......
    Sound of system is better than most stereos I have tried and it has a lot of tunability......EQ could have more tuning but it is fine none the less.Very expandable system and is user friendly.

    Overall this is an excellent player. All of the functions work well. I installed it myself into an FJ Cruiser and thought it was fairly intuitive. The only issue I have is the GPS DVD's are for North America only; no Europe data is available through Pioneer. Other than that I enjoy this system. Blue tooth pairs well with my iphone.

    This is a great stereo. Got it a couple of weeks ago , installed it my self
    and so far Iam very impressed. As usual crutchfield was very quick at
    getting it to me and it was very well packed with all the wiring harnesses
    and instructions to make the install as easy and painless as possible. The
    stereo is very nice, the I-pod intergration works very well and is easy to
    navigate. The navigation system seems to be right on. I haven't used the
    bluetooth yet, cell phone isn't capable but the rest of the system works
    very flawlessly. For the money you can't go wrong.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this thing with two things in mind -- GPS and bluetooth. The GPS seems to be pretty nice though I'm still learning, but the bluetooth leaves much to be desired. If I had known that this BT device wouldn't work with most phones, I would've found a comparable GPS unit MINUS the BT add-on. Very frustrating to find that out of all the phones I own, NONE will work with this thing. No where in the advertising does it say, "Hey, be sure to check to ensure your phone is compatible!!" I'm very disappointed knowing the after many, many, many bad reviews about that BT device, Crutchfield continues to sell it. Anyway, think before buying!

    Don't Expect Bluetooth To Work Properly

    Written By Don, Albany, NY on Tuesday, March 25, 2008

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Overall, the product seems to work as advertized however the BT-200 Bluetooth adapter is less than satisfactory. Seems to only pair properly with Motorola phones (most likely the only ones that Pioneer tested with these units) and one should be aware of this before expecting anything.

    We tested Bluetooth with several Windows Mobile 5 & 6 smart phones and PDA's and the unit was unable to pair with any of them. Pioneer support was of little help on this and the Bluetooth unit is not upgradeable, so beware.

    The install was easy to me with or without the manual since it was a occupation of mine in my younger years. I installed it in a 2007 pontiac g6 gtp sedan with the pano roof. The factory radio was double din so it fit right in their. Of course their was one simple issue, you have to get to install kits if you want to keep the DIC which I custom installed in the glovebox. but you need to get the metra kit with the dic and the Double din. The operation manual for the unit is not organized right in my opinion, and should not be in black and white. I had a xm issue at first, but when i called crutchfield tech support it took us 4 minutes to solve the issue.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased the AVIC-D3 a few weeks ago and I'm extremely pleased with
    the quality of the receiver and the customer support provided by
    Crutchfield. I was able to install the unit myself, which included bypassing
    the factory amp in my 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse.

    The install was time consuming but fairly straight-forward thanks to the top
    notch documentation specific to my car. I was able to pair my Blackberry
    Curve to the bluetooth module without any issues and the iPod interface
    on the D3 is fantastic!!! I also purchased the Sirius module which was very
    easy to install once the D3 was in place.

    Overall, it took about 7 hours to install all of the components and rewire
    the speakers. The job is definatley do-able for the technically inclined, but
    not for the faint of heart... Be prepared to spend several hours under the
    dashboard :).

    Thanks Crutchfield for everything!!!

    Written By Rich, Tulsa on Friday, March 14, 2008

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I installed the AVIC-D3X with XM and Bluetooth in my '02 Miata SE model.
    It replaced the Bose radio, CD and tape unit but I kept the Bose power amp and speakers, mostly because it was much easier to do that.
    The unit functions very well, both the GPS Nav system and the AM/FM and XM radio. I also have the Blue Tooth and iPod attachments but, I haven't used them yet.
    Crutchfield was very helpful and the equipment they supplied was quite good though the directions to interface the new AVIC-D3 with the connector for the Bose amp was not complete. I guess they cover themselves by saying "Consult the wiring diagram for your particular automobile before installation" but, it would have been nice if the Miata specific wiring diagram that did come with the Mazda-Bose specific Scosche impedance match box (an extra $20 or so) included all the wires necessary and not just most of them. They don't even mention the need to connect the 'control' wire from the AVIC-D3 to a pin (mate not not supplied as part of the kit) on the Bose amp connector. Once I got a wiring diagram (gratis from the local Miata dealer) I found the extra wire and connected it using one of those 'wrap around' connections behind the existing plug. Before doing that, everything appeared to work but no audio came from the speakers. As soon as I powered up after connecting that wire, everything went as advertised.
    The AVIC-D3 has some limititations... It needs the DVD to store the roadmaps for the GPS but, it can store a fairly large area, if creative planning is implemented, so that you can probably use the DVD for playing CD's or DVD's full of home-burned MP3's and still track your position all over a large town or even on a long cross-country trip, if you store the trip (with the multiple routing option) in before you remove the NAV DVD.
    The AVIC-D3 fills the space where the original radios came from and it looks very good in there. It is a little tight to get all the wires arrainged behind the chassis but, with patience it can be done. I'm experienced with working with electronics and avionics, so I didn't have a problem with the install or the antenna mounting (both on the top of the instrument panel, against the recommendations of the documentation though it seems to work great there) or any other part of the installation. If you even think you might have a problem, I'd probably recommend a professional, though I have seen some pretty sloppy 'professional' jobs too.
    All in all, a great little all-in-one package that seems to have been made for the second-gen ('99'-'05) Mazda Miata.

    Written By Cole, Huron, SD on Thursday, March 13, 2008

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is a great buy for anyone who can fit it in their vehicle. I have a 06 Jetta and this unit really brought my stereo to life! I installed it myself and it was pretty basic w/ the adapters from crutchfield. I put in the bluetooth system, sirius system, and ipod cable.

    The sirius interface is really weak but sounds outstanding and is hidden away from people that like to steal items like a stilleto.

    The bluetooth works good, I have a blackberry pearl that will not transfer the address book but will play music.

    I have an Ipod touch and it works really nice w/ the music, but will not work w/ video. I guess apple disabled that feature w/ the newest ipods. You have to have a "apple" cable to make the video work w/ the avic-d3.

    All around great unit with minor annoyances.

    Great features for a low price. Exactly what I was looking for: cheap gps navigation double din headunit.

    If there is any con, it would be the fact that to get directions on the gps you have to insert the DVD, that's ok with me since most of my music is on my ipod. Besides you are still able to see where you are, just not insert directions to follow without the DVD.

    Great system for Safety Conscious Consumers

    Written By Bill, Chicago, Illinois on Thursday, February 28, 2008

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased an AVIC D3X as a birthday present for my son's car. All of the features work smoothly, from the nav system to the IPOD adapter to the bluetooth system. I had the system professionally installed and just drove the car home last night. (My son is away at college and hence hasn't seen it.)

    When driving it last night, I was perplexed why some of the controls on the touch screen were greyed out, including the nav system. I then learned from one of Crutchfields excellent technicians that the car's parking brake needs to be engaged for many of the functions, including setting destinations for the nav system or watching a full length movie DVD to work. This may be a nuisance to some, but to me is an ideal safety feature to make sure that my son does not try to input new destinations while driving or watch movies while driving. The Ipod and radio contols can be accessed while driving. Looks like some thoughtful safety engineering went into this product. Nice job Pioneer!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I took my time to install this system in my '07 F-150 and I'm very satisfied with the completed installation. Everything went smooth and it was the easiest radio installation I've ever done! Thanks to Crutchfield's excellent resource data I didn't have to guess at anything except when it came to figuring out my speed sensor connection for the GPS. Again, since the Pioneer AVIC-DCX has been around for a while, I was able to find the information on the web after some research (the speed sensor is the gray/black wire that's on the factory wire harness connector you remove from the original radio). Excellent quality sound from CD/DVD/ Sirius radio and the blue tooth add-on units. I may consider getting another for my Mustang.

    I have to say, this unit has everything you may want or need for your car. I love the Bluetooth adapter and the Ipod connection. The only sad part of it is that it does not come with the detailed GPS maps for Puerto Rico. I just hope this map will become available in the future. Once you get familiarized to this audio system, it becomes very simple to operate. It also looks and sounds great on my 2002 Nissan Pathfinder.

    I never have installed anything quiet like this before... I have always gone to the stores to have all installation done and when I heard it was $300-$400 to install all of it in a 2007 F150 I was like forget it.
    Everything went smoothly with no issues. Everything worked after the first try. Had to call Crutchfield support once and they were pretty helpful.
    Navigation is very accurate (just make sure you have VSS wire and backup wire connected properly)
    Bluetooth functionality is awesome as well... phone pairs with the deck and I dont have to do everything. (Hint to make sure your phone security settings are correct)
    I would recommend this unit deffinetly.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This Pioneer AVIC D3 is simply wonderful! It does everything from full integration with my ipod to receiving files via Bluetooth(make sure your Bluetooth device has the ability to transfer data or this function will not work with the AVIC D3). This receiver is installed in my 2006 Subaru Forester XT. It is a vast improvement over the stock unit which was not bad to begin with. I lost the use of the stock woofer so i added the Kenwood KSC-SW1 under the front passenger seat, which plugs into the Pioneer RCA sub output for easy installation. Be advised that the XM direct satellite radio package does not work with the AVIC D3, you must purchase the GEX-P10XMT(traffic) or GEX-P920XM(xm radio) only. You can also run XM and Sirius! I do suggest you read the manual, there are so many things that this receiver can do. I also recommend that you have this professionally installed, you have to tap into the speed relay, back up lights, and parking brakes! You get a lot for the money.

    AVIC D3 in Chevy Silverado 2500 Classic

    Written By Robert, Athens Alabama on Tuesday, February 05, 2008

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I finished the install of the D3 last night. I had not installed a stereo in 20 years and was some what apprehensive about installing one with so many features. After reading numerous articles about the stereo being installed in my specific model truck I decided to do it. At first I was sent the wrong adaptor for my truck. Since Chevrolet sold two different type 2007 Silverados, there is some confusion. I called Crutchfield and they over nighted the correct part to me. I have heard that their tech support is good, I cannot begine to explain just how good it is. How these guys keep track of so many model stereos and vehicles is beyond me. Now for the stereo. I have the rear view camera, Ipod cable, Blue Tooth adaptor, and XM on mine. All of them work great. I have not made any long trips to evaluate the navigation features of the GPS, but the GPS system is dead on. The Blue Tooth even picks up when I am just outside the truck. The D3 allows you to load your own images to the screen, kind of like wall paper on your computer screen. You have the option of three different screen backgrounds. All in all, this is a great system.

    Great Nav System and Stereo

    Written By Chris, South Bend, IN on Tuesday, January 29, 2008

    I installed this unit about a month ago, and I am very happy with everything it has to offer. I chose not to use the included speed sensor cable, and the navigation unit still operates very well since it uses the signal from the satellites and the internal gyro to sense your car's movement. I have found it to be very accurate, even without tapping into my speedometer.
    It has more audio/video inputs and outputs than you will need, and the included iPod connector works great. The on-screen navigation controls for iPods are a HUGE improvement over standard head units, and the various equalizer and staging presets give a good variety of sound options to dial in the right one for your car. For the price and features, this unit can't be beat!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    We love the radio, however, being non-technical people, once we read the installation instructions, we opted for professional installation (highly recommended by mfg and us). So far it has been fairly easy to use, the biggest problem we are experiencing is bluetooth connection. We purchased a black jack II and cannot get it to work. However, the razors we own will automatically connect, so I think it's more with the phone and not the radio.
    All that said, we are extremely pleased with the radio and GPS unit.

    DVD Multimedia AV Navigation Headunit

    Audio/Video Features: The Pioneer AVIC-D3 DVD Multimedia AV Navigation Headunit features a built-in DVD/CD player, AM/FM tuner and Mosfet50 amplifier along with a touch-panel video screen.

    • Disc Compatibility: The AVIC-D3 comes with two DVD-ROM navigation map discs. The unit is also compatible with DVD-Video discs (Region 1), DVD-R/RWs, CDs (including CD-R/RW discs), and MP3/WMA/AAC/DivX discs.
    • Video Display: This unit is equipped with a fixed 6.1" color TFT active matrix, widescreen LCD that serves as a video monitor and system information display. The display has a 17:9 aspect ratio, and a resolution of 1440 (480 x 3) x 234 for a total of 336,960 pixels.
    • 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.
    • Display Adjustment: You can manually adjust the display's brightness, contrast, color, and hue. The adjustments can be made independently for the source, camera, or map screens. The adjustments of brightness, contrast and dimmer are stored separately when your vehicle's headlights are off (daytime) and when your vehicle's headlights are on (nighttime). These settings are switched automatically depending upon whether the vehicle's headlights are on or off. Note: The orange/white illumination wire in the main harness must be connected to the headlight circuit in order for this to operate properly.
    • Wide Screen Modes: You can choose from the following wide screen modes:
      • Full: a 4:3 picture is enlarged in the horizontal direction only, enabling you to enjoy a 4:3 picture without any omissions
      • Just: the picture is enlarged slightly at the center and the amount of enlargement increases horizontally toward the ends of the picture
      • Cinema: a picture is enlarged by the same proportion as Just in the horizontal direction and by an intermediate proportion between Full and Zoom in the vertical direction
      • Zoom: a 4:3 picture is enlarged in the same proportion both vertically and horizontally; ideal for a 16:9 screen
      • Normal: a 4:3 picture is displayed as it is
    • MOSFET50 Internal Amplifier: This receiver is equipped with a 50 watts x 4 (peak) MOSFET amplifier for low distortion, high power output. The amplifier is strong enough to power small subwoofers to moderate volume levels in compact cars and pickups. For higher volume levels from subwoofers, an optional amplifier may be connected to the preamp outputs.
    • Easy EQ Curves: This model features 6 preset EQ curves: Super Bass, Powerful, Natural, Vocal, Custom (1 and 2), and Flat. The two Custom curves allows you to create and store EQ settings in memory.
    • 3-Band Parametric Equalizer: This unit includes a 3-band parametric EQ with Selectable Q Factor. You may select a low (40Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, or 160Hz), mid (200kHz, 500kHz, 1kHz, or 2kHz) and high frequency (3.15kHz, 8kHz, 10kHz, or 12.5kHz) to boost or cut within a range of -12dB to +12dB. The Q factor (slope of the boost or cut) may be selected from one of the following four options: 2N (narrow), 1N, 1W and 2W (wide). Selecting a narrow (steep) Q factor results in frequencies around the center frequency to be affected less by the boost or cut than they are with a wide Q factor. This feature is useful for taming frequency response problems caused by the dimensions, materials and speaker locations of a vehicle.

    • Adjustable Loudness: You can select one of three different levels of loudness compensation. A "low" loudness contour provides a +3.5dB boost at 100Hz and +3dB boost at 10kHz. A "mid" boost is +10dB (100Hz) and +6.5dB (10kHz). A "high" loudness contour is +11dB at both 100Hz and 10kHz.

    • 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, you may activate the built-in high-pass filter. You may select a filter frequency of 50Hz, 80Hz, or 125Hz.

    • Subwoofer/Non-fading Preouts: In addition to the front and rear preamp outputs, there is one set of outputs that may be set for "subwoofer" or "non-fading" output. When set to "non-fading", the signal is full-range and the output level is user selectable from -6 to +6. When set to "subwoofer", the outputs are non-fading, and they may be set for normal or reverse phase, 50Hz/80Hz/125Hz low-pass output, and the level is user selectable from -6 to +6.

    • 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.

    • MP3/WMA/AAC/DivX Playback: This unit can play MP3/WMA/AAC/DivX files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, and DVD-ROM discs in ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, Romeo, and UDF 1.02 formats. MP3 files with a bit rate from 8-320 kbps, WMA files with bit rates from 5-320 kbps, and AAC files with bit rates from 8-320 kbps.
    • Multi Angle/Audio/Subtitle: You can switch between multiple audio systems, subtitle languages, and multiple viewing angles of a scene recorded on a DVD as desired.
    • A/V Inputs: The AVIC-D3 features two audio/video inputs: AV-1 on the A/V In/Out harness has RCA composite video and stereo RCA audio jacks, while AV-2 is a 3.5mm minijack input on the front panel. It requires an optional CD-RM10 adapter cable (item # 130CDRM10), which has a miniplug on one end and composite video and stereo audio RCA jacks on the other end. Both inputs need to be turned on in the menu. AV-1 can be set to Video, EXT, or Off; AV-2 can be set to Video or Off.
    • Optional Aux Input: When used with item 130CDRB10 (sold separately) or item 130CDRB20 (sold separately), this unit can accept input from an auxiliary source, such as a portable CD or MD player. When item 130CDRB10 is used, a CD changer cannot be connected to this unit. Item 130CDRB20 allows you to connect an optional Pioneer CD changer and an auxiliary source to this unit.
    • Cellular Mute: This feature mutes or attenuates the unit's audio output when a cellular call is received, then restores the level once the call is over. To use this feature, you must have a cellular phone with a muting output that can be connected to the muting input wire (yellow/black lead) of this unit.
    • Rear View Camera: The head unit features a function that automatically switches to the rear camera image (Rear View Camera In jack) when a rear camera (such as 130NDBC2) is installed on your vehicle. When the shift lever is in the reverse position, the screen automatically switches to the rear view camera. You can also see the image of the rear view camera during normal driving, allowing you to keep an eye on a trailer or boat you may be towing. Note: The Violet/white wire in the power/speaker harness must be connected to the backup light lead circuit in order for the unit to automatically switch to the camera view when the vehicle is in reverse gear.

    Navigation Features: The AVIC-D3 DVD Multimedia AV Navigation Headunit is also equipped with built-in navigation capabilities and comes supplied with two Navigation DVD software maps.

    • Disc Compatibility: The AVIC-D3 is compatible with specific DVD-ROM navigation map discs only and cannot play standard DVD-ROM discs.
    • DVD Navigation Maps: The unit comes with 2 DVD-ROM map discs (East and West) which cover the entire United States (including Alaska and Hawaii) and portions of Canada. These discs include a massive "Tele Atlas" database, which enables the units to provide the largest network of turn-by-turn routable roads. The discs provide over 11-million points-of-interest throughout the United States and Canada.
    • Memory Navi Mode: When the DVD Map Disc is inserted, you can store the map data into the internal memory of the navigation system. If the map disc is removed, navigation is performed by using data in the memory. In the Memory Navi mode, you can play a music CD or DVD Video on the navigation system while navigating at the same time. Some functions are restricted in the Memory Navi mode, and you may need to reinsert the DVD Map Disc to use those functions.
    • Positioning Technology: The AVIC-D3 accurately measures your current location by combining the positioning by GPS and by Dead Reckoning. The Global Positioning System uses a network of satellites orbiting the earth to give you time and position information. The 3D Hybrid Sensor in the navigation system calculates your position by detecting driving distance with the speed pulse, turning direction with the Gyrosensor, and inclination of the road with the G sensor. The navigation system continually compares GPS data with your estimated position as calculated from the data of the 3D Hybrid Sensor to give you accurate positioning.
    • Voice Guidance: In addition to graphical directions, the AVIC-D3 provides voice guidance and turn-by-turn directions.
    • XM NavTraffic Ready: XM NavTraffic, powered by NAVTEQ Traffic, allows the unit to monitor real-time traffic conditions and routes the driver to the destination avoiding traffic congestion, using the optional GEX-P10XMT XM NavTraffic Satellite Radio tuner. The traffic information is provided through a continuous satellite broadcast with data from leading commercial traffic data providers, government departments of transportation, police and emergency services, road sensors, cameras, and airborne reports. Separate subscriptions to XM Radio and XM NavTraffic are required.
    • XM Extra Information: In addition to XM NavTraffic, you can receive stock price, sports, news, horoscopes, and other information and display it on the screen when the unit is connected to the GEX-P10XMT XM Satellite tuner. You can display the prices of up to 12 stocks, updated every 30 seconds.
    • Display Modes: There are four types of map displays and two additional view modes:

      • Map View: displays the standard map in a 2-dimensional fashion

      • Driver's View: displays a 3-dimensional map from the driver's perspective. A portion of the screen shows a 2-D map of your location.

      • Guide View (during route guidance only): the standard map of your surroundings is overlaid with the name of the street you will turn onto next, and 2 arrows: the larger one to the left indicating the direction of your next maneuver and how far you are from approaching it, and the smaller one to the right indicating the direction of your second to next maneuver and how far you are from approaching it.

      • Route View (during route guidance only): displays the name of the street you will next travel along and an arrow indicating the direction of travel

      • Vehicle Dynamics Display: displays three instruments that indicate the status of your vehicle. You can change the values displayed by the instruments on the left and right of the Sensor View, allowing you to choose from the following: voltage, acceleration, side acceleration, angular velocity, slope, direction, or clock

      • Rear View: if you have installed a rear view camera, and the camera is set to "On", the rear view image is displayed on the left-hand side of the screen, while the map of your surroundings is indicated on the right

    • Enlarged Map of the Intersection: When "Close-up of Junction" in the Settings menu is On, an enlarged map of the junction appears while driving.

    • Display During Freeway Driving: In certain locations of the freeway, lane information is available, indicating the recommended lane to be in to easily maneuver the next guidance. When driving on the freeway, freeway exit numbers and freeway signs may be displayed when in the vicinity of interchanges and exits.

    • Scroll Mode: Touching anywhere on the map for at least 2 seconds changes the map to Scroll mode and the map begins scrolling in the direction you touched. The scrolling stops when you remove your finger from the screen. At this time, the cross pointer appears at the center of the screen. Also, a line connecting between the current location and cross pointer appears.

    • Location Information: An icon appears at registered places (home location, specific places, address book entries) and places where there is a POI icon. You can place the cross pointer over the icon to view detailed information.

    • Destination Input: The Destination Menu gives you many different ways to choose your destination:
      • Point Of Interest (POI): you can search for a Point Of Interest by selecting the category or entering the Point Of Interest name. Additionally, selected Points Of Interest in a certain category can be shown on the map, and you can check the location on the display while driving.
      • Freeway Search: you can set the entrance or exit of a freeway as your destination
      • Telephone Search: if you know the telephone number of your destination, you can quickly search for your destination by specifying the telephone number
      • Return Home and Go To: if your home location is registered, the route home can be calculated by a single touch of the touch key from the Main menu. Also, you can register one location, such as your workplace, as your favorite location, and the route is calculated in a similar way.

    Call History: The 12 most recent calls made (dialed), received, and missed are stored in the Call History. You can browse the Call History and call numbers from it.

    Preset Numbers: Numbers that you dial frequently can be assigned to presets for quick recall. You can assign up to six frequently called phone numbers to number presets P1 through P6.

    Echo Cancel: If you are using the hands-free function, you may hear undesired echo. The Echo Cancel function can reduce the echo and noise for better sound quality.

    Voice Recognition: If your cellular phone features voice recognition technology, you can make a call by voice commands. By speaking the name of your contact into the microphone, the call is placed automatically.

    Call Waiting: If while you are talking on the phone and another call comes in , the number (or name if its is in your phonebook) of the new caller appears on the display to signal that you have a call waiting. You can then put the first caller on hold while you answer the call waiting, or you can choose to reject the call. Your cell-phone must have a subscription for a call-waiting service.

    Reject All Calls: If this function is on, the Bluetooth Adapter will automatically reject all incoming calls. This feature cannot be set for each different user phone. The rejected call is not memorized in the received or missed call history lists.

    Microphone: The supplied microphone eliminates the need for an additional hands-free kit installation. The microphone is 0.941" long and 0.415" in diameter, with an attached 13' cable. It plugs directly into the Bluetooth Adapter.

    Bluetooth Audio: The CD-BTB200 is compatible with Bluetooth audio players that have A2DP or AVRCP profiles. Playback functions include: Play/Pause, Skip Back/Forward, Fast Forward/Reverse, and Stop.

    iPod Interface Cable

    iPod Control: The Pioneer AVIC-D3 can be connected to your iPod via the supplied iPod interface cable, the CD-I200, allowing the touch panel or soft keys of the Pioneer head unit to control and play your iPod's recorded songs.

    iPod Compatibility: The CD-I200 is compatible with all docking iPods, including iPod mini, iPod photo, iPod nano, and iPod video models equipped with the dock connector.

    Connection: The CD-I200 consists of a single 6.5' interface cable with an iPod dock connector on one end and a proprietary Pioneer connector on the other end. The cable is made to plug in between the dock connector port on your iPod and the iPod interface port on the rear panel of your compatible Pioneer head unit.

    Display: The information stored on your iPod can be displayed on the AVIC-D3, including song title, artist name, and album title.

    Search Functions: Just like looking for songs using the iPod controls, search by playlist, genre, artist, album, or song to ensure easy access to each music file.

    Repeat Playback: The Repeat Playback function allows you to repeat the current song or all the songs from a specified playlist.

    Shuffle Playback: The Shuffle Playback function has three modes, Songs, Album and All. In Song mode, all the songs in the current list are played back in random order. In Album mode, the unit randomly selects and album then plays back all the tracks in that album in order, then chooses another album, etc. In the All mode the unit plays all songs recorded on the iPod in a random order.

    Charging iPod: When the receiver is on and the iPod is connected, the iPod is supplied power for playback and to charge the battery. In addition while the iPod is connected to this player, the iPod itself cannot be turned on or off; the iPod will turn off about two minutes after the ignition switch is set to Off.

    Wireless Remote Control

    Remote Control: The supplied CD-R55 wireless remote control gives you full control of the AVIC-D3 receiver in the palm of your hand. You can also control some Pioneer DVD players and TV tuners.

    Remote Control Operation Switch: You can operate multiple components at once, using the 3-way switch on the right side of the remote:

    • AVH: when operating the AVIC-D3 receiver
    • DVD: when operating a DVD player, such as XDV-P6
    • TV: when operating a TV tuner, such as GEX-P5700TV
