Question - Those with Pioneer Head Units
I tried searching but couldnt really find an answer
I have had my eye on one of the Pioneer Advanced App / Bluetooth / Navigation systems. Either the F940BT or the F40BT. The price is a little offputting, so I have started looking at non-navigational units. (I have a Tom Tom, and i also have various iphone apps, just thought the head unit would look better)
I looked at the x2500BT or the newer x5500bt and also seen one in real life and had a play. It seems to be perfectly suitable for what I require and using the advanced app mode with the navigation app looks quite good to.
However, I am sure I have read somewhere, though cannot find it now, that you cannot use navigation and play music at the same time? I asked the guy in the store (car audio centre, northwood) and he couldnt answer the question, and couldnt test as there were no speakers hooked up.
My question to any of you that have one of these pioneer head units, specifically the x2500 or x5500, can you use the sat nav app through advanced app (or any other way) and listen to music at the same time? Otherwise the navigation seems a bit pointless to me?
