Pioneer AVIC S1 / S2 Comments

I take the responses as not a well recieved product??  :laugh: :laugh:

Finally saw one first hand - wasn't what I thought it should be..  Anyway,  Someone can lock and or throw this thread in the file... :B:
I think I'll wind up looking that way or maybe seeing what the 08's offer when they hit. >:D

Most everyone seems to be happy with the in dash or a Garmin?  AVIC S1 wasn't bad just pricey and smaller than i thought.
FWIW I looked at the S1 a couple months ago, but decided against it. I did a lot of reviews and it was rating an average 3 out of 5 starts. Some sites rated it 5 where I saw as low as a 2. Most of the complaints were just because it doesn't have a lot of bells or whistles. Main thing that turned me away from it is that it's not waterproof. I take my GPS with me on the motorcycle as well, so it has to be waterproof. 
waterprrof would be my concern as well,  the bike was my thought too - Good point

In dash would be nice (really nice)  but again looking at versatility, figured  portable would be the way to go.

I have a Pioneer in my Audi and like it more than the one in the burban. The down side to portable units are that they attract thieves. I spent a night in Lowell MA the other night and 3 cars near the spot I parked and 1 other were broken into for thier portableGPS units. 1 of the cars had a set of golf clubs worth more than all the GPS units taken were not touched.
