2004 Chevy Suburban - Just in Time for Vacation

This '04 Suburban got the works for entertaining the kids(and adults) on a long road trip. We replaced the factory stereo with a Pioneer AVIC-F90BT. This unit gives you alot for your dollar. It comes with a powerful navigation system. No need to insert a navigation disc - the AVIC-F90BT stores it navigation maps in its flash memory. Its maps can be updated through the memory card slot. You can make hands-free calls easily, thanks to the built-in bluetooth receiver and Pioneer's Conversational Voice Control. The intelligent voice recognition software recognizes your intent and prompts you for addtional information. Add a Pioneer iPod adapter, and you can use voice commands to search your iPod for music by artist, album, genre or playlists. Now moving to the rear of this vehicle you will find a 13" TFT Flipdown monitor. This will keep the kids in the middle row occupied. For the kids in the 3rd row, we installed 2 headrest monitors. These monitors have their own DVD player. The addition of a game port for their Ninetendo Wii completes the video installation. To aid in backing up this large suburban, we installed a backup camera along with audible backup sensors. As soon as the vehicle is put into reverse the AVIC-F90BT engages the backup camera for the driver to see as they are backup up.
