Have it all
The AVH-P8400BH sits at the top of Pioneer's DVD receiver lineup for 2012, offering a 6.95" touchscreen display, customizable display colors, built-in Bluetooth®, and an HD Radio™ tuner, along with some cool new features that'll really enhance your car audio and video experience. Plus, you can remove the AVH-P8400BH's detachable face — an unusual feature on DVD receivers — when you leave the car, giving you peace of mind when you've parked in a questionable spot.

The MIXTRAX experience
Pioneer's MIXTRAX technology adds DJ-inspired audio and visual effects to your music. Once you use the included MIXTRAX PC software to analyze your music, the AVH-P8400BH will create non-stop mixes, complete with visual effects. You can also use MIXTRAX as an app with your iPhone® or iPod touch®. Load it up and control the app from the receiver's touchscreen to get the party started.

Pioneer AVH-P8400BH

Advanced App Mode
The Advanced App Mode adapts technology originally developed for Pioneer's AppRadio™ to this receiver. When you've connected your iPhone with Pioneer's CD-IU201S cable (not included), you'll be able to control apps like MotionX GPS Drive, INRIX traffic, Rdio, and PANDORA®, along with new apps as they're developed.

Impressive A/V capabilities
Think of this Pioneer as a music hub for your car. Play your store-bought and home-burned CDs and DVDs. Or connect your iPod® or iPhone, then take control from the receiver's big touchscreen. Plug in your iPhone with the CD-IU201S cable and take charge of your Pandora® account from the touchscreen, complete with thumbs-up and thumbs-down controls — you can view video content from your iPod or iPhone, too. Your iPhone will charge up fast when the battery is low, thanks to the 1-amp USB port.

detachable face

If you're into video, you'll love the big 7" LCD screen. You can watch DVDs in bright, clear detail when you're parked, and the dual-zone output allows you to send video content to screens in the back of your car, so the kids can enjoy a video while you listen to a different source up front.

Sound advantages
The receiver's built-in amp has the horsepower to keep up with the receiver's great looks, delivering crisp, clean sound that you can tailor with the 8-band equalizer. To get the perfect sound, use the auto-equalization feature to tune your system (microphone required). If you'll building a system, the three pairs of preamp outputs send a 4-volt signal to your external amps.

Stay on track and stay safe
Pioneer's AVIC-U220 navigation module gives the AVH-P8400BH full-fledged navigation capabilities. And you can add a rear-view camera to the receiver's cam input — it'll make backing up larger vehicles a lot safer in tight spots.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) 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.

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 or its optional iPod adapter.

iPhone® 5 Note: You'll need to update this Pioneer receiver to enable Bluetooth control and metadata display for the iPhone 5 or other Apple iOS6 devices. This update requires a laptop with Bluetooth running Windows 7.

    This is my second Pioneer double DIN and I love it. Sound quality is superb, internal amp powers factory speakers very nicely, the display looks great and love the removable face. My only complaint sometimes searching songs and other navigation can be slow and jittery, minor issue with the other positives above. All I will buy is Pioneer head units from now on.

    Pros: Fit and Finish, great screen, great sounding amp, internal DAC vs iPod DAC, HD radio built in

    Cons: Menus can be slow at times. At the bottom of the radio is a bar that sticks out with volume, menu, track up down, and is not that attractive.

    Fantastic

    First, I installed this in a 2004 Nissan Frontier XE King Cab (non Rockford Fosgate system) - my truck only has the door speakers and two tweeters, stock. I wanted, Bluetooth, iPhone 4 support, USB connectivity and especially important to me was a tilting screen. In the Frontier, the radio is a little low and I was concerned that the angle would be hard to read. The titling takes care of that. What is really nice is when you set the tilt, and power off the truck, when you start the truck, the screen will return to the tilt angle you originally set. Adjusting the tilting angle also helps make it visible depending on where the sun is shinning in from. I have tinted windows so the sun isn't really an issue. I opted for this model over the 2013 model because I wanted the dual USB ports over the HDMI port. Prior to the radio being delivered, I went ahead and installed my Alpine speakers (I had a gift card to a different retailer, sorry Crutchfield). The speakers sounded great at the store (amped) but sounds terrible in my truck (un amped). Once the HU arrived, man of man did these speakers come alive! I mean holy wow! I was going to run an Alpine amp to them but I don't think I need to now. Instead I'll run the amp to the sub. Between the EQ, Loudness, and low and high pass filters, this unit does everything I wanted. Oh, some reviewers have had issues with detaching the face. I can't imagine what they are doing wrong, its dirt simple. Slide switch and lift up. I would buy again.

    Pros: Amazing sound, built in amp drives my Alpine 6.5 just fine, menu navigation is straight forward but there is a little bit of a learning curve but just getting more familiar with the system and the location of the controls and it'll become more intuitive.

    Cons: My truck is bouncy so when using the touch screen, you may have a couple of times to get the right button (no fault of the radio) .I find myself using the remote quite a bit to adjust volume and change presets. This is where a physical volume knob like other units have is really a plus. Lack of a physical control knob is MY ONLY ISSUE and I can live without it since it does everything else so well. Manual lacks examples of why one might use a feature. Otherwise, manual is just a manual.

    This unit has probably the most features of any other unit you'll find at this price. 2 USB slots, an SD card slot, HD radio, etc. I am upgrading from the factory Bose head unit in my 2006 Sierra and the sound of this unit, even with the equalizer on flat, completely blows away the factory one. I ended up not keeping it, though. The number one reason for this was because you cannot turn off the beep sound for the buttons or touch screen. Every time you adjust the volume, change the station, or do anything else, the unit makes a beeping noise. While this may not sound like that big of a deal, I don't like it and it gets very old pretty quickly. The second thing I didn't like about it was the graphics of the unit. Pioneer really pushes the MIXTRAX feature, which is really not my style. I prefer a clean screen without much going on in the background. However, if you don't mind the beeping every time you touch the screen or a button, the unit is top notch. Great buy, overall.

    Pros: Sound quality. Features relative to price.

    Cons: Beeping

    I bought this unit to replace the factory stereo in my 2011 Ford F150. I also wanted a unit with a back up camera and HD radio. This unit is great, I love being able to use Pandora, I-Heart Radio, and my GPS apps.

    My only complaint is the instructions are not very well laid out. You really have to hunt to find something. I'm still playing with the brightness and contrast adjustments, it's kind of hard to see in bright sunlight.

    Pros: Easy to use, well laid out. Pandora, I-Heart Radio, Iphone 4 app use

    Cons: Instruction manual needs an index

    Great radio. The value is only diminished by the need to spend hundreds more an cables. THREE additional expensive cables (and four firmware updates) are required to get this to work with the iPhone 5. Additionally, there is NO reason my passenger cannot enter Nav data while I drive.

    Pros: Very versatile

    Cons: Additional cables required.

    Nice radio, good quality, only issue is I have a iphone 5 which the adapter kit for this particular model cost extra. Plus you have to do the update thru pioneer which seems easy enough,but attempted it today and now my radio won't turn on. Pioneer offers to do the update for a fee so I'd you do have these wants I would opt to pay instead of DIY.

    Pros: Clear screen, options for days

    Cons: iPhone 5 compatibility hoops I have to jump thru.

    Decent for the price

    This unit is a pretty good choice for a 2012 left over. My main problem with the head unit is that the Pioneer CD-IU201S iphone/ipod connection wire and the Pioneer AVIC-U250 GPS use the same port/plug. So if you bought both of those products, you can only use 1. I'm pretty sure the Pioneer XM option also plugs into the same plug. I opted to not use the special iphone adapter wire, and stick with the GPS.

    I have not upgraded the firmware yet. I still have the iphone4 (for now) and can use the USB wire or Bluetooth to listen to Pandora, Spotify and my playlist, with full control of the app. So, I a little confused as to what that wire would have really given me.

    I use the other USB port for an external 1TB hard drive. The unit seems to have some minor problems with that setup. Sometimes mp3's will not show up to play, for those files I have to delete from the harddrive then re-pull them back in and the unit will recognize the mp3's. Also, when the unit first turns on, it has problems connecting/mounting the harddrive and I get the error message to retry and connect. It never reconnects using that prompt, but will automatically connect after a minute. That issue could be from having such a large hard drive, but I can't be sure.

    Video looks good, but it's not HD video. The sound coming from a DVD is awesome, almost as good as a home theater when testing with the DVD Kill Bill.

    Overall, I happy with my purchase and Crutchfield had the best price w/ install kit

    Pros: Rear view camera option, 2 USB inputs, front memory card slot

    Cons: Display can be hard to see in the daytime, Display can not dim at night, 1 port for multiple addons

    I'm an android user and wasn't sure about this radio but after using it for a couple of weeks I am very happy with this radio. The blue tooth works so well with my HTC phone that I don't really mind no Pandora interface on the radio for my phone. I also have a iPod connected and it works seamlessly.

    Pros: Sound quality, blue tooth, and price

    Cons: No android support (pandora)

    I had HIGH HOPES for this unit based on the other reviews. I bought it and received it and I tried to upgrade its firmware to the latest version so that it would be compatible with iOS 6.1.3 (iPhone 5, basically). I tried for HOURS to get the firmware to upgrade, but every attempt resulted in an error. If you search & google, you'll find many people in the same boat as I am. In a nutshell.... this unit will not accept Pioneer's firmware upgrade. If you have an iPhone 5, you're screwed......

    Pros: Totally nice looking

    Cons: Firmware upgrade nightmare.............

    My 2006 crossover lacked USB connection, Bluetooth, rear view camera, Pandora, IPOD connectivity, DVD and straight audio sound quality. This unit not only brings my car's features up to spec with my wife's new infinity, but it even looks factory installed. It was simple to install, provides a removable face and even mixes songs on my playlists. The digital tuner brings out the best out of local stations and phone calls are a breeze to channel through with good Apple iphone connectivity and microphone. Now, my wife's 10 speaker Infinity's factory Bose system does not sound half as good as my old Pontiac and it has the same bells and whistles for a very cool price. Thanks Crutchfield.

    Pros: Excellent features, great looks, awesome resolution, very cool motorized face action, equalizer is a hoot. Brings every hot hi-tech features into your old car.

    Cons: Instructions for the factory amplifier connection were omitted from my order but a simple email got it solved within hours.

    Really like the unit. Be sure to get a micro bypass if your wanting to watch movies while in motion. It made my stock speakers actually sound good. Very simple to install too. I had to drive 210 miles right after installing it, and two movies later I was very impressed with the picture and sound quality.

    Pros: Almost everything is a pro about this unit. I'm a apple fan so that is the biggest pro to me.

    Cons: The only real problem I have is the issues it has if you connect the cord to your iPhone before the Bluetooth connects. The blue tooth connects fast, so it's not really a issue until you leave your phone pluged in and shut the vehicle of to get gas ect.

    Works great!

    I saved up for a while to purchase this unit for my vehicle. I've always been a fan of pioneer and their products so I figured investing this much would be worth it. Im soo disappointed! The unit wasnt even installed for a week before it started having issues engaging the face plate on to the unit. The main reason I selected this unit over others was because of the theft deterrent it offered, so spending 20-30 minutes trying to install the face plate on every time I got in my vehicle made me want to just leave it on and not remove it, which of course defeated the purpose. It didnt help that when I called "tech support", the guy was highly rude and talked down to me! I expected more from Crutchfield.

    Pros: The screen looks amazing! It really does bring your stock speakers to life. Easy to use when it actually works. Pandora from android works via Bluetooth. And calls via Bluetooth work and sound very clear (android operating system).

    Cons: You can't hide annoying music information when its playing, so your wallpaper is basically hidden all the time, unless you turn the head unit off. Wallpaper that you use has to have a specific format of JPEG or will not work! Pain to reattach the faceplate !!!

    The unit is great, I installed in my 2003 matrix and programmed the color to red to match the dashboard lights. It sounds way better than the stock receiver. Most touch screens I have used in the past only worked if you touched it with your finger tips but this one even works if only your finger nail touches the screen. Very easy to navigate and adjust your settings

    I love this receiver, and how it has upgraded the entertainment value of my 2005 Mustang convertible. I now have hands-free, bluetooth phone calling; audio streaming; full EQ control; USB access (2!), CD/DVD, AUX and much better sound. It's not perfect, as you can see in my Cons comments below. But it is well worth the replacement cost of my old Shaker 500 HU. The install is fairly easy, although I did get stumped at one point regarding wiring the Ford harness to the radio wires. A quick call to Crutchfield at 9:20pm, immediately speaking to a knowledgeable human being, and the question was answered. I love that. I would recommend this radio to anyone who really wants to upgrade a stock stereo. In the overall scheme of things, the Pros rule, and the Cons are minor considerations.

    Pros: Bluetooth support Hands-free phone support; microphone works very well Streaming audio USB access Touch sensitive screen Changeable colors, backgrounds Equalizer settings: lots of choices and control HD radio Crutchfield support

    Cons: Car battery drains quickly when used and the car is not running Auto EQ Measurement can give poor settings Can't use the phone dial pad if the car is in gear MixTrax: lame Special, obtrusive, expensive cable required if you want AppRadio support. I would rather be able to use my own TRRS AUX cable/jack and iPhone cable in order to run apps on the HU

    No complaints, this unit exceeded all of my expectations. I installed a Kenwood DDX419 in a friends car last year, the Pioneer is superior in every way, there is just no comparison. I also purchased the GMOS-100 adapter which is somewhat tricky to install however when finished it too works well. It is critical to follow all the instructions and clear the can bus of any faults before installing otherwise you will lose some of the function such as chimes and steering wheel controls. If this happens, remove the module, clear the bus and re-install.

    Pros: Great sound, HD radio tuner, Flawless hands free phone

    Cons: motorized face-plate can be difficult to reattach

    Works with iPhone 5 and iOS 6

    Works great, easy to use and navigate. Bright screen, easy to install. Bluetooth audio streaming works great

    Pros: Works with iPhone 5 and iOS 6 Plenty of inputs for different options

    Cons: Even after the Bluetooth firmware update. Still will not display album artwork. Will need to buy the additional cable if you want album artwork from your iphone5 to display. Pandora streams no issue but need the cable to use ??or ?? feature.
