Pioneer has just announced a new series of navigation units, the AVIC F series! They will be released in June.
Available as a hybrid (indash and portable) or as a indash only.
AVIC-F500BT (aka LINC) Hybrid Unit
AVIC-F700BT (CD Playback)
AVIC-F900BT (DVD Playback with MSN Direct)
Incredible new high res interface
All flash based (no nav dvd or cd)
All F series have integrated Bluetooth that auto pulls all contacts from the phone, iPhone included, I tested it.
SD Card slot for music/videos
USB connection for iPod/iPhone (videos work too)
Voice Command and Text to speech thanks to VoiceBox Technologies (similar to Microsoft Sync)
MSN Direct for gas prices/traffic/movie times/weather (only on F900)
Much better mapping, including 3D maps.
Many more little features
