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
- 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
- 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:
a 4:3 picture is enlarged in the horizontal direction only, enabling you to
enjoy a 4:3 picture without any omissions
the picture is enlarged slightly at the center and the amount of enlargement
increases horizontally toward the ends of the picture
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
a 4:3 picture is enlarged in the same proportion both vertically and
horizontally; ideal for a 16:9 screen
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
- 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.
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.
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
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, you may activate the built-in high-pass filter. You may
select a filter frequency of 50Hz, 80Hz, or 125Hz.
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.

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
