An Inside Look at the New AVIC F-Series: Nav and Connectivity

Can't get your head around the new features in our AVIC F-Series Navigation line? Here is an "Inside Look" at a few of the new features.

Part 1:  "Always On" Navigation and Connectivity Options

TeleAtlasA New Class of Navigation
No more hassling with map discs. Now you don't have to worry about the pesky things being misplaced, damaged, lost, or stolen because we've done away with them for the F-Series navigation line. What's the F? Fast? Freedom? Believe it or not, it's Flash. We've taken the entire TeleAtlas Database that was previously on the two-DVD set, compressed it down, and stored it internally on flash memory.

Mobile Media
Ever wonder how your system can contend with all the different ways we listen to music nowadays? Think about it. There are portable media players like iPod, USB Devices... and CD's of course, though it feels like those are rapidly going the way of the cassette tape. We've created a line of Navigation systems that make it easy to play various digital and audio formats from DVD-R/RW (AVIC-F90BT and AVIC-F900BT only) and CD-R/RW discs, and also Portable Media Players, USB memory devices, and even SD Cards. And for all you DivX fans, the AVIC-F90BT and AVIC-F900BT have DivX video playback from DVDs and CDs as well. The direct digital connection of USB to portable media players like iPod® and USB drives allows high speed control and searching, while delivering clean and clear sound. Furthermore, the flexibility of using multiple types of media players means that we can play a wide range of files types as well, such as MP3, WMA, iTunes AAC, and MPEG-4 video files. We've even got a build-in SD Card slot in all of our F-Series units for convenience.

iPod® Control Made SimpleCD-IU230V
With the new CD-IU230V cable, you can directly control your music and videos from your iPod® on the AVIC-F90BT (cable included), AVIC-F900BT, and AVIC-F700BT.

The AVIC-LINC also offers this but requires the CD-IU200VM cable instead.

You can find these features and more on our new F-Series Navigation units: AVIC-F90BT, AVIC-F900BT, AVIC-F700BT and AVIC-LINC
