JCN Network: Pioneer will be releasing their AVIC-HD3BT hard disk Sat Nav system into the Russian market. It’s claimed to be the first all-in-one hard disk drive-based navigation system for the region’s consumer market.
In Russia, there’s been a lot of interest in in-car audio/visual entertainment centering on DVD media. With its recent energetic economy, consumer appetite in navigation systems is growing stronger.
Pioneer launched the world’s first GPS car navigation system designed for the Japanese consumer market in June 1990, followed by the European and North American consumer markets in 1999 and Chinese market in March 2006.
The navigation software includes Russian interface and voice guidance. The hardware seems to be similar to the European AVIC-HD1BT
