Coming soon to a car near you is the Pioneer AVIC-S2. We’ve been getting details about this new device for about three months now, but the picture is starting to come together. The AVIC-S2 will have many of the common GPS features and share several similarities with the AVIC-S1. Maps of the
continental contiguous USA plus Canada, a 3.5″ touch screen display, a SiRFstarIII chipset, and Bluetooth are all traits that the Pioneer AVIC-S2 has in common with the older S1. So what’s new?
So far the only features we know will be above and beyond that of the S1 is an MP3 player and an optional traffic receiver. The traffic receiver will be of the TMC variety. It will be connected to the AVIC-S2 via its own car cradle, connecting to pins on the back of the S2.
We expect to hear full details plus pricing and a release date within a few weeks.
