FROM THE DRIVER SEAT
The time and effort that went into making our Dodge Ram's audio/video system the best it could be without having to take up any valuable space was incredible to witness. Now that the hard work is over, we've had the opportunity to settle into the cab and enjoy the quality of Pioneer's products, as well as the craftsmanship of Joe and the Audio Innovations' team. Making fuel or food stops isn't a problem with the AVIC-Z110BT's easy-to-use and ultra-fast navi system, and each and every song we listen to from our iPod sounds better than ever before thanks to Pioneer's latest audio technology. Making legal (hands-free) phone calls from the head unit is a snap with the voice control and the sound quality is crystal clear. Best of all, the speaker pods and matching trim in the door panels tie the interior together with the outer paint scheme-a look that always makes for a well-rounded appearance. Go ahead and crank up the tunes!
