Default Checking interest: Pioneer Avic F700BT-Va

Thinking of ditching the F700 and picking up a AVH-P4100. I love this unit because of the built in nav and all of its other features but it just has a few draw backs in my opinion. I'll do a little "pros vs cons" for this unit.

Pros:
Nice unit
Built in nav
5.8" touchscreen
iPod stuff
Bluetooth
SD expansion slot

Cons:
Mega slow boot up
Touch screen is kinda difficult and doesn't really like to be responsive on the first try

The headunit is in great shape. There's only one scratch on the face and it's very small. I honestly don't even remember where it is. There's only one thing wrong with it though. A while back I "hot-swapped" RCA's and blew the pico fuse inside the unit. I've fixed the problem by grounding the RCA's and the noise has gone away for the most part. There's only a SLIGHT whine/pop/crackle noise. That's only when the RPM's are up though which could mean it's just poor grounding on my part and it's just alternator whine.

Pics:



I have some daylight pictures that I'll post up later. So now for the good stuff.

What it comes with:
Pioneer Avic F700BT
GPS Antenna
Bluetooth mic(doesn't have clip)
Pionner power plug
Pioneer RCA plug
Cheap Ebay Ipod interface cable

What it doesn't have:
Original packaging and manuals. It was bought refurbished and for some reason didn't come in the factory box or like I said, with any of the manuals and whatnot. All of that can be found on Pioneer's website though.

Price:
Looking to get $400 plus shipping. Will only ship to cont. US.

Bump for a great product at a great price! I have one in my truck and I love it. I agree with pros and cons, but after I updated it, it boots up about 20x faster than it did right out of the box. I haven't really had any problems with the touch screen part though.

Yea I kinda take back the part about the touch screen. I was just having an off day the day I made this ad haha. I would update mine, but I'm afraid of screwing it up.

It puts out great sound quality. I had it hooked up to my stock speakers with a 15" sub for the longest time and it sounded great.
