External Device Connection
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.
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.
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.
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
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
antenna Y-adapter is needed. MSN Direct service will be available only until
January 1, 2012.
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
- 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)
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,
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.
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
These Loudness contours use a reference volume level of -30dB.
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.
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
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
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).
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.
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. Recordable discs can contain MP3, WMA, AAC, or DivX files. Discs

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 manually engage the rear view camera during
normal driving, allowing you to keep an eye on a trailer or boat you may be
towing. When the vehicle is first started, the delay before the rear view camera
is visible on screen is approximately six seconds.
