Pioneer AVIC-U310BT: the one you can afford


Pioneer AVIC-U310BT is the final addition to Pioneer’s AVIC line up. Out of the ones we talked about today (Pioneer AVIC-Z110BT, Pioneer AVIC-X910BT, and Pioneer AVIC-X710BT) Pioneer AVIC-U310BT is the most affordable one with a suggested retail price of $600.

Just like the other ones U310BT is also a 2-DIN GPS navigation system that features bluetooth hands free option, iPod and iPhone controls, and a smaller (but sufficient) 4.3″ WQVGA touch screen. It carries the same maps from TeleAtlas covering US and Canada, but instead of 12 million, it only has 500 thousand points of interest. However Pioneer AVIC-U310BT does feature an SD card slot located within the detachable front panel of the unit that lets you bring in more POIs and even a map of Mexico.

It does not do CDs or DVDs but can still play your audio from MP3, WMA, or AAC formats. Another neat feature is hidden behind the device; a USB port that can connect various audio players.

You’ll have to wait for July to put a Pioneer AVIC-U310BT on your dash.

UPDATE: We said no CD or DVDs but that slot at the top of the device awfully resembles an optical media drive to us. What do you think?
