New turn by turn app from Pioneer and Fullpower image

Pioneer announced the AppRadio, an attempt to put the apps of the Apple iOS platform front and center in your car.

MotionX-GPS Drive customers can take advantage of Pioneer AppRadio’s capacitive touchscreen for enhanced access to the turn-by-turn navigation solution accessing its 3D maps, real-time traffic information, live point of interest data along with Facebook and Wikipedia integration.

The AppRadio also allows users to use their apps in a safe manner, Cardenas said, and the company prohibited app developers from including certain functions that the company felt would distract the driver unnecessarily from the road, such as manually creating a station in Pandora, for example.

“With MotionX and Pioneer we can now experience the next generation of in-car and pedestrian navigation,” said Philippe Kahn, founder and CEO of Fullpower-MotionX. “The MotionX Pioneer partnership shows the vision for the future of navigation.”

Once in the car, connect to AppRadio’s enhanced 6.1 inch screen for viewing MotionX-GPS Drive’s 3D maps and turn-by-turn directions. The iPhone becomes a convenient secondary screen allowing a variety of activities such as emailing destination arrival times to colleagues, accessing point of interest information or getting the latest traffic updates.

All this while using AppRadio as a speaker phone and accessing all your music and audio books from your iPhone.
