Add Bluetooth for safety on your drive
Imagine the convenience of hands-free calling. When a call comes in, Pioneer's DEH-6400BT mutes the music and displays the incoming number or contact name. Just press a button and you can talk without fumbling with your phone — an important safety advantage on your busy commute. And thanks to audio streaming, you can send music wirelessly from many Bluetooth®-enabled devices to your receiver, too.

Pioneer DEH-6400BT

Loaded with Pioneer sound enhancements
Built-in Bluetooth is only one of the advantages this receiver has over run-of-the-mill car stereos. You'll also find an impressive collection of sound-shaping controls. Pioneer's Easy EQ 3-band equalizer lets you tailor the sound to match your taste and your car's interior. The Advanced Sound Retriever improves the audio performance of your digital audio files, reversing the compression process to give you more high-frequency sparkle and musical detail.

Choose colors to match your car and your taste
The bright dot-matrix display displays all system information clearly, and you can adjust the display and control colors of this receiver separately, with thousands of possible combinations on tap. The DEH-6400BT will blend right in, whatever the color of your car's control surfaces and dials.

Power and control
At the heart of this receiver, Pioneer's acclaimed built-in amp delivers plenty of power for good, clean sound, while the two sets of preamp outputs offer a convenient connection to a full system with external amplifiers, speakers, and subs. You'll find the low-pass filter and level control on the subwoofer preamp outputs handy for adjusting the bass from the driver's seat.

Ready to play your music
Plug your iPod® into the USB input, and you can use the Pioneer's controls to run the show. Once connected, the receiver bypasses your iPod's built-in digital-to-analog converter, using its own high-quality DAC to deliver your music files with the highest fidelity possible. You'll love the convenience of the auxiliary input on the front panel, great for plugging in a satellite radio, gaming device, or another audio source. The DEH-6400BT also plays all your CDs, including those with MP3 and WMA files burned onto them.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Pioneer stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Pioneer, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver.

    Why replace your factory radio?

    Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

    I decided to install it myself with the included instructions and kit. It took a little while, but only because I am fastidious. Sound better than my factory installed system, plays CD's and MP3 CD's flawlessly, but I mostly connect via bluetooth and my iPhone. As soon as they see each other, the music plays from where it last left off without having to touch anything! Phone calls are fine, though sometimes folks on the other end claim they can't hear me. I placed the microphone on the dash just behind the steering wheel, though at some point I'll move it to the visor just to see if it makes a difference. Overall, I recommend it as an inexpensive solution to modernize older cars.

    Pros: Audio, colors are pretty cool

    Cons: Hard to see in bright light

    I bought this radio to work with my iPhone 4s and it has been a perfect match. Blue tooth connected without a hitch. Reception and sound quality are a big improvement over the original unit in my 2002 Honda Odyssey. My seven year old grandson really likes the multi-color display, but this old man prefers just plain green. I installed the unit in about six hours having never done this before, but then spent another whole morning learning how to operate it. If only the instructions would have explained the SRC button up front, it would have shortened the learning curve. I still don't know what SRC means. Maybe it's "Seriously Required Control". If I had had it installed by a knowledgable technician, I probably would have been given some basic instructions and been up to speed quickly.

    Pros: A solid full featured replacement CD,Bluetooth, smart phone, radio. An excellent value.

    Cons: The instructions are great after you've learned how to operate the unit. The Demo startup program gets in the way of learing how to operate the unit. Finally, yes the display fades away in the bright of day, but I haven't found it to be a problem.

    Purchased this unit along with the install kit. Normally, I wouldn't even consider attempting a radio head unit replacement on a weeknight, but I know I can trust Crutchffield to deliver only the highest quality. Within 3 hours, we had the old unit out, the new unit in, everything buttoned up, and sounding great. Now, my son has hands free calling in his car with voice dialing / music over bluetooth with his iPhone. All he has to do is press one button on his phone and tell his phone what he wants. The rest happens automatically between the iPhone (3gs) and this unit. I shopped for over 90 minutes trying to find a better package of install kit and head unit - I could have saved maybe $5, but I would never have had the confidence that all the pieces would work together - nice job Crutchfield.

    Pros: Easy install, good sound, HANDSFREE Calling and Bluetooth Music Streaming!!!

    Cons: You'll need to read the instruction manual to take advantage of all the settings, but this unit does almost as much as the $700 unit I put in my father's truck about 8 months ago.

    This player plays music wonderfully and the tuner is outstanding. However, I put it in my 96 Ford truck and the display is completely unreadable duting the day. The high gloss plastic face works better as a mirror to see out the passenger window. This is true even after I have taken off my sunglasses. I can choose thousands of colors of text and buttons that I can only see at night. I am serious about not being able to change stations, pick songs or see the time. If it's more important to play with text colors at night you'll love this player.

    Pros: Sounds great

    Cons: Invisible info display

    Installed in 2004 Ford Explorer when factory radio just quit. Installation was easy with the Crutchfield kit. Install took less than an hour. Radio is excellent and sound is much better than premium factory radio. The Pioneer manual is pretty much useless and it took a lot of playing around to figure out how to configure various options. Main volume button is too small and difficult to rotate. Controls are not obvious. External mic, bluetooth, usb on front, good tuner, cd player, simple pushbutton presets make it a good value.

    Pros: Easy install, excellent sound. Great features for the money.

    Cons: Useless Pioneer manual, controls are not obvious, menu system is arcane and not intuitive. Main volume control is too small to easily turn.

    Does NOT play *.m3u playlists off a USB key. Does NOT play from Android phones through USB (Pioneer Connect app for android is USELESS). Flawless USB connectivity with the iphone 4 I used to have, though. Bluetooth audio and calls work well with both iOS and Android, which saves this deck from a 1-star rating.

    Ipods are not the only mp3 players out there, Pioneer! If they fixed their Android connect app, this would be an easy 4-star deck.

    Pros: Good iOS connectivity, good Bluetooth connectivity.

    Cons: LACKS Android support for USB (Pioneer Connect app for Android does not work for anyone according to the Google Play store), NO playlist support from a USB key.

    This is the 3rd Pioneer unit that I have installed in my truck. So far I have been extremely happy with this unit. I have all of the features that my son's 2013 Altima has as far as Bluetooth technology and hands free. Great sound for the money.

    Pros: Great unit with lots of color options....

    Cons: Instructions a bit vague, but if you take your time and read them you can make it through.

    Very nice head unit. we have them in three of our cars now and are very satified with them all. One con is that the BTHF does not always hook up right away, but it's only about 5% of the time. Sound quality is good when matched with a quality pair of speakers.

    Pros: Great sound quality and power. BTHF option is great!! Great head unit for the money!!

    This unit was an exceptional addition to my smart phone usage while driving. I know the features included in my Galaxy II Epic Touch are responsible for many of the slick features like dimming the streaming audio sound for navigation directions, but the stereo cuts off the audio program for phone call usage and then resumes after the call is done. Very cool. I am a loyal Pioneer guy, and this head has all the features I have grown used to from the Pioneer line. The high functionality of the unit is great, and the low price was a pleasant bonus.... stop messin around and GET ONE!!!

    Pros: Affordable, easy to install with Crutchfield's install guides and adapters, interfaced well with my Galaxy II Epic Touch

    Cons: Display is kinda dim, and the Bluetooth does not connect microphone on the first try, menu is cumbersome with the single button operation

    Bluetooth with a seperate mic in a stereo of this quality is just what I'd been looking for. And at this price point, its outstanding. It's given new life to my factory speakers. I can hear bass. Tried a unit with mic built into the front cover and it was crap. The seperate mic is a huge improvement. It's not as good as a wired headset, but it works well enough to call the wife on my way home from work (she's not listening anyway).

    Pros: Bluetooth streaming. Sound quality. Cheap.

    Cons: Limited Bluetooth controls. No smart phone app support. Display can be tough to see on sunny days (make the color white for best results).

    It's a stupid looking thing that has small buttons which makes it harder to use while looking at the road. The volume knob is hard to use because it's too tight and too close to the other buttons. The initial demo mode is a pain. The instructions are somewhat poor. Installed quickly and fit properly. Sound is fine.

    Pros: Price and initial quality seems good.

    Cons: Just another flashy product without any real thought about intended usage.

    Overall a good product with a few user interface issues that are a bit annoying. Not a problem for me because I'm a techno-dweeb, and an old geezer, but for those who are not, it may be a bit more of an issue and will take time getting used to. Background: this replaced the factory radio in a 2003 Ford Taurus wagon - so it is a major upgrade in performance. 1st, the display: In bright sunlight you must have the brightness turned all the way up and it still isn't quite enough. I'd give up the gazillion colors for one that is bright enough. Then at night the display is too bright if you have it set for bright sunlight. It has a dimmer function but it doesn't dim anywhere near enough for night driving. 2nd, On/Off. You don't press the volume control for on/off, you press the little "source" button at 2 o'clock from the volume control and you have to hold it in for a second for it to understand that you are turning it off. Bad choice. 3rd, seek buttons. The default mode is seeking by preset stations. Should default to manual. I love the USB input. It remembers where you left off if you remove it and plug it back in later. Overall: a good value with some user interface issues that may give the techno-challenged some frustration

    Pros: Performance Value

    Cons: User interface, setup

    The sound quality on this is great - far superior to the original factory unit (that was supposedly made by Alpine according to the Honda parts listing). I kept the factory speakers and even with those the clarity of the music and sharpness of the voice is excellent. I can hear highs that I couldn't before and the lows have some energy so you can really hear it. This thing would probably be truly exceptional with upgraded speakers. I chose Pioneer as I'd had good experience with Pioneer car audio many many years ago and I must say that I am not disappointed now. From my point of view it would be hard to get a better unit for the money.

    Works great with my iPhone, easy to use and can control from the receiver, remote or the iPhone - how cool is that? The Bluetooth audio streaming is great, but I'm not planning on using the phone feature at the moment so I can't say.

    The controls are fairly easy to use - so many options to choose from! The icons on the main controls are clear and large enough to be legible from the drivers seat. Getting to the main options menu is only a push of a button away - just be safe and don't do it while you're driving! I really like the remote, it's relatively small and gives you good control of the receiver. It's laid out nicely and you can move through the presets, change to the next song or adjust the volume without taking your eyes off of the road.

    Pros: The sound it great, the price is excellent.

    Cons: The manual is marginally useful (aren't they all anymore?). The preset buttons could be larger.

    I looked at a few receivers on the site and this one was one of the top ones I had to choose from. Mike (my advisor) suggested this one as a sure hit. And that it is! I had it installed by a family friend in less than an hour and I was up and running. The sound is WONDERFUL. Crisp highs and clean lows. Right now I have my bass set to -2 and it's STILL very powerful. The bluetooth is awesome! Very clear phone calls and love the ease of playing music from my iPhone through the controls. The remote control is another handy feature. I highly recommend this receiver.

    Pros: Great sound. Great price. Love the features. Cool display.

    Cons: Display is dim during the day.

    I've been using the deck for about a week now and I'm overall impressed. I normally use BT streaming for my spotify app and everyone sounds crisp and clean. It almost sounds like I added new speakers to the already existing OEM set I have in my Civic. I live in CA where it's normally sunny and this posses a problem for the deck in terms of display. It's extremely hard to read anything that going on in the deck, and if you plan to change the station, you best have your presets already in place. Otherwise, once setup, BT controls like pause, play, next, back, can be handled from the deck as well as phone calls as well as auto connecting as soon as you turn on your ignition (assuming you've let your phone do so). I haven't actually received a call via BT so I can comment as to how good it works. I found reception on the radio tuner great and no problems picking up stations. I've used the USB mostly for charging and can't comment as to the plug and play feature of the device nor te iProduct sync. I installed this deck myself and for a first time, with a little patience and the right tools this was a 1.5 hr task.

    Pros: Great BT streaming w/ no hiccups whatsoever. Radio tuner sounds great Great customization

    Cons: Super hard to read display in the daytime but who's going to be looking at their deck while you drive

    Bought this unit to replace a factory unit that had seen better days. Easy to install and sounds great. Been thinking about upgrading stock systm for some time and am now glad that I did, what a difference. Now I can hear my music over the road noise. The sound is richer at a much lower volume.

    Pros: Good quality built unit. Easy installation with Master sheet. Advisor was helpful with the questions that I had.

    Cons: Pioneer's instructions were somewhat vague. Many wires to splice out for my installation, even with the new power cord from Crutchfield. This installation was not done at home and done on a time schedule, had vto drivre home with the unit in demo mode - very distracting. To program it I finally had to pull the fuse and start over, no problems then.

    Great!

    BT streaming sounds great. Too often the bluetooth streaming of music is not rich, this deck fixes that! Phone works well to. Pioneer quality!

    Pros: Great sound

    Cons: lots of features that are intimidating at first, you will get it though.

    I bought this unit because I play music from my phone through my car a lot, and I was looking for something that would do the job better than a cassette adapter could do. The hands free calling was a plus too, and it powers my Pioneer speakers a lot better than my factory radio does. I'm a college kid, so I can't quite afford the 600-700 dollar head units that they got on the market now, so I figured I would go with this unit. I am not disappointed at all by my purchase. Installation was cake thanks to Crutchfield and their awesome mastersheet. I ran into a few little bumps installing the unit but they were nothing I couldn't figure out myself after a bit of thinking and referring to the manual. Anyway, on to the features. The bluetooth works just as good, if not, better than my cassette adapter did. It is a lot more convenient too since I don't have to fiddle with my phone to change tracks, since my radio does it for me when I press the arrow buttons! After some tinkering, I got the sound the way I like it, and it sounds great. The only thing I can think of at the moment that would make it better is if the controls were a bit more user friendly. If it weren't for the manual, I'd be really confused on how to operate my radio and change the settings. I haven't seen any issues with daylight obscuring the screen yet, but we'll see eventually if that happens. This has made my old van one step cooler, Thanks crutchfield!

    Pros: Awesome sound quality (I have high end speakers, I can't say if it sounds good on factory speakers or not) Lots of ways to customize how your music sounds The unit itself is highly customizable Hands free calling Bluetooth audio

    Cons: Confusing to understand at first, but you'll get the hang of it if you look at the manual and get used to having it in your car

    good

    I finally decided to upgrade the casette deck in my 2000 Forester. Rather than paying someone, I thought to do it myself. Installation of this receiver went well with the Master Sheet instructions and matching audio connector. I wanted to pay MP3 and Audible Books without the cassette input. I also figured to try a bluetooth connection with my cell phone to end the fumbling for a phone under a coat and seat belt.

    The install went well and I am getting good FM reception, playing MP3 audio from two players and making cell phone calls. I decide not to go to high end receiver as this is a twelve year old car driven locally so I am living with a dot matrix display and individual preset buttons. There is no integration with steer wheel controls. I'm happy with the improvement and hope for a long run with the receiver and car.

    Pros: Easy installation, Bluetooth connectivity to cell phone.

    Cons: Dot Matrix display and small buttons.

    Great 2001 Honda Accord factory radio replacment

    Replaced factory radio on 2001 Honda Accord. Radio trim panel removal was straightforward, but to install mic over the rear-view mirror, I had to remove the A-pillar panel, which was a little challenging. To remove A-pillar panel, first remove door weather stripping, then pull hard to remove A-pillar panel.

    The sound quality is awesome using the factory speakers, I can hardly believe this is the same car. Bluetooth call and audio streaming quality is great. The iPOD and aux connections work as advertised. The radio controls take a little getting used to, but are fairly easy to navigate through once you get the hang of it.

    Pros: Decent price. Sound quality. Hands free calling, bluetooth audio streaming, iPOD, and aux connections.

    Cons: Does not include case for detachable face plate.

    Great Product!
