    Does anyone have any experience of the Pioneer AVIC-F77DAB in use in a motorhome? I'd be pleased to hear from you if you do. Thanks.

    I've got a Pioneer X3600DAB head unit with the AVIC F160 camper/truck satnav module in the MH.

    Not had any issues with it though.

    I have an Avic 920bt, impressed all-round and would consider up grading to the later model at some point.

    I've just fitted an AVH-X8700BT to mine. Very pleased, even with the original speakers which I do need to upgrade.

    I have the AVICS F77DAB unit in my motorhome and I have generally found it ok, but....... it doesn't have the ability to set the vehicle's dimensions in it however it allegedly learns suitable routes etc. based on where you have been. It hasn't caused me any issues to date, but I've never been convinced that it does this. My biggest concern with it is the lack of map updates that are available, there was a firmware update a year ago, but I'm waiting for clarification from Pioneer that it does contain map updates. It generally served us well for the three and a half weeks we spent in France last year, but we did have two funny incidents where the unit tried to send us down non-existent roads that were part of road interchanges on the maps, but which didn't exist on the ground. I certainly wouldn't rely on it, but I presume that's true of most SatNav units?
