Pioneer Electronics has developed a brand new iPhone app that lets users send data such as addresses from an iPhone wirelessly to a car navigation unit.
Called AVIC FEEDS Pioneer’s iPhone app is designed to eliminate the need to type in addresses on a car navigation unit. For example users can find locations using Google Maps and then upload the information via Bluetooth to a Pioneer car navigation unit, or they can send geo-tagged photos from the iPhone to the navigation unit. In both cases, the locations will appear as contacts in the navigation.

Called AVIC Feeds, the app is free on the Apple App Store. It works with two Pioneer in-dash navigation units: the AVIC-U310BT and AVIC-Z110BT.
Pioneer says that more than 22 percent of Pioneer navigation system owners own an iPhone.
