Re: Pioneer AVIC-X1R

love them , our mechs have mounted some for customers, but in an E34 I always fear that the screen would touch my air vents because they stick out a little just above the radio. Never tried though. Can be bought for normal money now

Well i had one installed on Wednesday. the screen can hit the dash, but it is at a good angle for viewing, so further tilting is not required...

However, when searching through the menus or receiving voice instructions, I get interference...

I have only driven the car once since Wednesday but it was annoying the hell out of me. Its going back to the shop that installed it tomorrow, but i was just wondering if anyone else has the same experience with one of these units..

It may be a bad earth ( i hope ).

Re: Pioneer AVIC-X1R

I'm not sure what that avic-x1r is, but I have an avic-n1 installed in mine. My screen blocks the center left vent, so I just shut the vent and enjoy the screen!
