Pioneer links iPhone and in-dash nav system

Pioneer's AVIC FEEDS app establishes a link between the Apple® and Pioneer products, enabling iPhone users to find POIs or search for destinations ahead of time on their phone and access them via Bluetooth® from their Pioneer navigation systems for turn-by-turn voice guidance.

POI's searched through AVIC FEEDS can be selected by choosing the pin drop of the desired location.

Photos taken on an iPhone that are geotagged with geographical metadata such as location co-ordinates can be saved for future use as POIs. Geotagged photos sent to users or downloaded from the Internet can also be used as a POIs.

Destinations created from POI searches or geotagged photos are converted as phone contacts to the navigation system via Bluetooth.Once the phone book is synchronised, the routable contacts are identified by a unique icon that appears next to the contact in the navigation system. By selecting that contact, Pioneer's navigation system will calculate a route and provide turn-by-turn guidance to that location.
