Pioneer, XM Push Into Navigation

Pioneer Electronics has built XM Satellite Radio’s traffic service into its new navigation system.
Pioneer called the AVIC-N2 the first aftermarket navigation product to offer satellite-based traffic information using XM NavTraffic. The device displays traffic conditions and suggests alternative routes on a motorized, 6.5-inch touchscreen monitor.
XM NavTraffic sends the Pioneer system traffic data for 20 metropolitan areas. NAVTEQ compiles the data; XM delivers it via satellite to the system.
The AVIC-N2 with XM NavTraffic includes a traffic tuner, navigation system, DVD/CD/MP3 player and vehicle dynamics monitor.
The Pioneer GEX-P10XMT data and audio receiver, an optional traffic tuner, offers the XM NavTraffic service and the XM service. The subscription price is expected to be $13.99 a month for a bundled offering of XM NavTraffic and XM Radio.
Sold separately, the Pioneer GEX-P10XMT traffic tuner and activation of XM NavTraffic service is required.
