The NavGate AVIC-F930BT, AVIC-F9310BT, and AVIC-F30BT all feature enhanced audio, wireless connectivity, and audio streaming possible through built-in Bluetooth.

Geotagged images as well as safety camera locations that warn of approaching accident blackspots can also be added via this feature.
The most advanced of the three models is the AVIC-F30BT which includes 4GB of flash memory, a 7-inch WVGA touchscreen ad a 3D graphics acelerator, DVD playback, Dual Zone capability for rear seat playback, built-in Bluetooth for hands-free calling and music streaming, USB connectivity for iPod/iPhone, an SD card slot and a back-up camera input.
