This review is from: Pioneer 4.3" In-Dash Navigation w/ CD Playback (AVIC-U310BT)
Ease of use
Smaller screen - but why do you need a 7" screen for TTS?
SD Card DOES NOT play MP3s - or I just dont know how to get it up and running
Other Thoughts: I installed this a couple of days ago and I am actually liking it. POI database is laughable but you can import via the avic feed. It's just a hassle especially when I was running out of gas...yes, they do not have POIs for gas stations built in. I still have yet to experience the problems everyone is stating...
I am kinda bummed that the SD Card does not play MP3s. I looked at a site prior to purchasing this and it stated that it does. I got a 16GB card and loaded it with MP3s and nada. I cannot figure out how to play it from the different sources. I even tried a 1GB card just to make sure that it is not because of the size. Still nothing.
BT is decent. It takes a while to aquire but it works. Mic is good since no one has told me otherwise and sound is great coming out of the speakers (dependent on your system).
Pros: Lot's of power, very quiet, great price.
Cons: Mine might be defective but it definitely cannot handle high end systems
Other Thoughts: Like I stated, mine might be defective and therefore 3 eggs only. I have 790i F.T.W, e8600 (stock), OCZ DDR3-1600 4GB, GTX 280 3-sli, 1x velociraptor 300gb, 2x 1TB, 2x dvd+/-r, G15, MX518, Plantronics usb headset, Swiftech water pump, and 8 fans. Powers up fine and temps are great. ALWAYS HARD LOCKS MY PC. I have tested all other components and finally noticed the +12v drops below 11v on idle and on full load (11.25v idle/ 10.90v load) therefore hard locks. Tested my system with PCP&C 1000w and no issues. RMA in process and keeping fingers crossed that the new one does not do this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great drive for Blu-ray movies. Easy install. Pretty straight forward
Cons: Software that comes with it is cr*p. You definitely need to get better software. I had a previous version so the upgrade didn't cost me much.
Other Thoughts: Make sure you have a PC capable of playing Blu-ray, meaning HDCP. My GPU was HDCP compliant but I had to update to the new drivers.READ FULL REVIEW
