Pioneer AVIC-D3 Head Unit

Pioneer marked the opening of SEMA by announcing a new, deluxe head end unit for car stereos that it hopes will fulfill virtually every requirement a driver may have. The AVIC-D3 uses its 6.1-inch touchscreen as both a control for music functions as well as a display for DVD movies, DivX video, and GPS navigation. The latter feature is comprehensive, according to Pioneer, as the head unit includes maps of North America with over 11 million points of interest. XM Satellite Radio subscribers can integrate an optional tuner for XM's NavTraffic service that provides real-time updates of accidents or traffic flow.

The D3 is equally flexible for audio, Pioneer says. The base unit can play AAC, MP3, and WMA CDs and has an iPod connector on its back to offer direct integration with Apple's music player. Bluetooth is built-in to pair the car stereo with cellphones and Bluetooth-equipped music players, while satellite radio customers from Sirius or XM can optionally control their receivers through the screen. The AVIC-D3 isn't expected to ship until March, but will receive its official pricing at the CES show in January.
