Pioneer's flagship AVIC 8000NEX boasts dozens of media and navigation options -- including the first aftermarket appearance of Apple CarPlay -- but most users will find a better feature-to-cost balance lower in the brand's NEX lineup.
The flagship AVIC-8100NEX isn't just the top of Pioneer's line, it's one of the best, most fully featured receivers on the market. Just make sure you're not buying more functionality than you really need.
For iPhone 4 and 4S lovers, the Pioneer AppRadio 2 is possibly the best aftermarket receiver that money can buy. For Android users, the choice isn't so obvious.
The Pentax Optio WG-2 is a very good rugged camera with few trade-offs for its durability.
In one box, the Pioneer AVIC-Z130BT has all the must-have car tech features that most people could want, including hands-free calling, voice-controlled digital audio playback, and turn-by-turn directions with traffic data.
The PC Miler 450 is a unique product that offers truckers turn-by-turn directions with a specificity unrivaled by any other GPS we've tested.
With powerful and customizable navigation hardware and software, the RightWay 550 is a great GPS device for advanced users. Those looking for an easy-to-use GPS device, however, will probably want to look elsewhere.
For users who want to add GPS navigation to their iPod Touch, the Dual XGPS300 is a possible solution, if they can get over the sticker shock.
The TomTom One 140 S benefits greatly from feature trickle-down, bringing high-end features to an entry-level model without much price bloat.
Fans of Dale Earnhardt Jr. will enjoy hearing the Nascar star direct their trips, but after the novelty wears off, the Rightway Spotter, Dale Jr. Edition just doesn't stack up to the competition.
