The $US1,600 Raku Navi AVIC-MRZ009 will be rolled out in Japan next week with its Air Gesture Sensor that uses an infra-red system to detect and track the motion of the driver’s hand.

The new gesture system is just meant to be a safer alternative for accessing more common functions without requiring the driver to take their eyes off the road. [Pioneer via Tech-On!]
