Pioneer ECO dashboard shows how much you're killing the planet

Pioneer Electronics took center stage with its latest line of car audio products. Those looking to trick out the audio for their cars can use Pioneer's newly launched FitGuide, which is available online from pioneerfiguide.com, as a tool to determine the best audio system for your specific vehicle.

Among the newly announced 2010 products include the new in-vehicle navigation and entertainment system, the AVIC X920BT, which includes built-in Bluetooth as well as intuitive operation with one-touch functionality via the Touch Slide interface. It's designed for the music lover and is compatible with the iPhone and can even create up to 40 customized playlists based on song characteristics including styles, genres and vocal rhythms — which can be helpful for those who shouldn't worry about such things while, say, driving down the highway.

The system also features a new ECO Driving function that provides driving status reports along with the driver's impact on the environment with visual images on-screen. And while this can't be used to say keep track of your teen's driving, it will let you keep track of mileage and your impact on the environment.
