Pioneer To Renew Lineup of Sought-after "Raku-Navi"
Car Navigation System in JapanStrengthening their appeal by adding HDD-based models to the series
September 29, 2005, Tokyo, Japan - Pioneer Corporation announced today that the company will introduce a renewed lineup of "Raku-Navi" car navigation systems between late October and mid-November in Japan. The new lineup comes in four models of HDD-based car navigation systems and another four models of DVD-based models, covering a wide range of installation types, such as 2-DIN A/V-integrated navigation system, on-dash monitor type system, in-dash monitor type system, and rear monitor set system. Their suggested retail prices range from 147,000 yen to 273,000 yen (consumption tax included).
With its traditional concept of "easy operation and high performance," Pioneer's new "Raku-Navi" series employ four keywords for car navigation operations: Departure, Local Area, Traffic Congestion, and Returning. Users can smoothly and easily operate the car navigation system during driving from these keyword buttons on the screen touch panel or remote control, or via voice control. Offering superior A/V performances at the same time, the new models realize the great combination of A/V and car navigation performances at high level.
The HDD-based models feature easy-to-read Target Map*1 to select the map display mode from four modes, Enlarge Text, Address Focus, Road Focus, and Facilities Focus, depending on the driver's immediate driving needs. The Music Server automatically records tracks from music CDs onto the 30-GB HDD during playback (up to about 200 CDs or about 2,000 tracks can be recorded). In addition, the new models highly improve response capabilities to traffic congestion and route search ability thanks to various high-tech functions including:
Both for the HDD-based and the DVD-based models, an iPod® connection*2 is possible via a separately sold Pioneer iPod® adaptor CD-IB10. Also, terrestrial digital TV programs can be enjoyed when the Pioneer terrestrial digital TV tuner GEX-P7DTV is connected.
