Zak Billmeier grew up in southern Vermont and coastal Maine. After graduating from Mary Washington College with a Geography degree he still isn't sure quite what to do with, he eventually settled in the mountains of Central Virginia. He spends his free time chasing his daughter around, taking pictures, gardening and cooking. Zak traces the roots of his interest in electronic gadgets to the Casio wristwatch with a built-in calculator he received as a gift one year as a child. He joined Crutchfield's car A/V team in 2007.

Pioneer's AppRadio 3 receiver lets you view smartphone apps on its big 7” screen so it's easier to control them while you're on the road. You can check out your favorite apps on a simplified menu that's designed for use in the car, so you can keep your eyes on the road instead of fumbling around with your phone.

AppRadio 3 comes in two flavors: the SPH-DA210 with a CD/DVD drive, and, exclusively at Crutchfield, the SPH-DA110, without the disc drive, for those of you who have no need for CDs any more.
