Hey I just bought a Pioneer AVIC-Z1 in-dash nav/dvd system on ebay, any thoughts on this unit? I was looking for a nav unit that came with a 30 gig HD so the nav wasn't laggy at all. Any tips on installation? All help here would be greatly appreciated

Great unit...but buying it on ebay was an extremely poor decision. you should have gotten it from a local dealer.

it was refurbished, I didn't want to spend $1,800 + on the Unit, I've got a squaretrade warranty so if it sucks ill get my money back and pay the extra $$$ for a brand new one..

which unit do you have? pros and cons? any suggestions for install?

thanks!

I have the DDX8017 as a temporary unit until my DDX8019 comes in (kenwood excelon) Pro's- better sound quality, easier video bypass..cons- no hardrive

The unit requires you to find your speed sense wire...i wouldnt reccomend self installation. I would bring it to a local dealer

another little tip, the production date of the unit will determine what bypass you have to do to it. there were two different ones for the Z1

just know that you cant copy mp3's to the hard drive nor use a dvdrw with mp3's either
:werd: it has to do with copyright infringmint (sp)

The best part about it is i can take out the screen/pod and speakers in a matter of minutes to make it street ready
