A lot to enjoy
Pioneer's DVD receivers set the bar for multi-faceted functionality, and the AVH-P1400DVD leads off their wide-ranging lineup. This versatile receiver sports a 5.8" screen with intuitive touchscreen controls that allow you to make changes by tapping, swiping, or dragging your finger, along with user-friendly menus that you can customize to your liking. You can even tailor the receiver's appearance to your taste by choosing from five display colors and 112 key panel illumination options.

Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD

A/V media at your command
When you connect your iPod® to the front-panel USB input, you'll be able to use the receiver's controls to access your playlists. Handy tools like Alphabet Search and Link Search to make it easier to find the song you want fast. And the receiver's 1-amp USB port will charge your devices faster, too. You can play anything from your regular store-bought or home burned music CDs, to music files you've burned onto CD or DVD discs or loaded onto USB thumb drives.

Pandora® control
If you're a fan of streaming Internet radio, connect your iPhone to the receiver with Pioneer's CD-IU51V cable and take charge of your Pandora® account from the touchscreen, complete with thumbs-up and thumbs-down controls.

Rear panel

Video playback
The 5.8" LCD screen plays DVDs in bright, clear detail when you're parked. You can also send a movie from the receiver to a rear-seat screen — your passengers will thank you during those long trips. And with Pioneer's CD-IU51V cable, you'll be able to view video content from your iPod too.

Sound matters
The receiver's powerful built-in amplifier delivers the goods, with crisp sound at all volume settings, while the 8-band equalizer offers plenty of ways to tweak the output. Three pairs of preamp outputs make it easier to connect external amps, and this receiver offers an auto-equalization feature to tune your system (microphone required).

Add on for safety and convenience
If you're a road warrior, add Pioneer's AVIC-U220 navigation module for in-dash navigation. And you can add a rear-view camera to the receiver's cam input — it'll make backing up in tight spots a lot easier and safer, too.

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.

    Bought this radio in March of 2013 and put it in my Chevy TrailBlazer. Last week (Feb 2015) It started shutting off after about 5 minutes. If you shut the truck off, let it sit for a minute or 2 and then restart it the radio will come back on for another 5 minutes. I'm not real happy about this. Of courses there is only a one year warranty. So now I need to find another radio to replace it.

    Pros: Worked great while it worked.

    Cons: Didn't last long enough.

    I was looking for a deck with a lot of control over the sound. This deck allowed me to adjust the sound exactly how I wanted. The touch screen is extremely responsive and easy to use. This has been my favorite deck as of now.

    Pros: Touchscreen responsiveness, sound control

    Cons: The day after I installed it I got an error message. All I had to do was unplug it and plug it back in, but having to take the dash apart was annoying. Hasn't happened again since.

    I purchased this unit around Christmas time and got it installed a couple of weeks ago. The install was a breeze thanks to Crutchfield included installation accessories. Overall it only took me about 30 minutes in my Scion TC. The head unit looks seamless with my interior and I love the great features. I have it connected to my Iphone 4s and can use Pandora, YouTube, and Netflix. I use Pandora daily, its the best. Overall I gave this unit 4 stars because I think the screen resolution and quality should be better, but for the price it cannot be beat! Don't hesitate to make this purchase!

    Pros: Great features, price point, sound quality

    Cons: Not the best screen quality, weird cable sticking out of the front

    All I can say is very impressed plenty of features. I can honestly say this head unit is at its best with all aftermarket gear to complement the head unit. After fine tuning the band, the sound is flawless, Kenwood KFC-C6894PS 6"x8" 3-way in the doors, Sound OrdnanceT B-8PT, Kenwood Excelon X450-4 to power the door speakers all with this unit could not ask for a more perfect package. At first I replaced jus the head unit and automatically noticed a big diff I jus nu it was only a matter of time b 4 the rest of the puzzle was put together and boy ole boy no complaints. I will admit thou if u fiddle with the settings to fine tune jus remem until u up grade all components u will not get the overall BEST out of the head unit.... Great buy

    Pros: Just buy the head unit if u can spring for the up graded model go 4 it

    Cons: None

    I've always been a big fan of pioneer so when i got a new truck i figured i would stick to what works best, this unit is more than what i actually needed but the price was worth it and the functions was very nice, dont care for touch screen to much but its different so i can get used to it. It made my factory speakers that sounded like junk before now sound much better, anyways Pioneer as done right by me for years and will continue to buy their products

    Pros: its actually very easy to use if your used to smart phones or computers

    Cons: come on its a Pioneer, theres no such thing as cons

    Great radio!

    I bought this model because of the low price and I didn't need the features that the higher models included. I am disappointed with the poor use of the touch screen. One reason for buying a touchscreen was because of the on screen buttons. The on screen buttons are easier to use while driving than the tiny physical buttons. For example, when using the USB flashdrive option, there are no buttons for skipping tracks. Other touch screens I've used have on screen buttons for everything except volume. Another complaint is the trim bezel fit. For my install I didn't need this bezel however there is no reason for it to be such a poor fit. It fits tight on the sides bit there is about a 3/16 gap on the top/bottom. If I had it to do over again I wouldn't select a different model or brand.

    Pros: Great price, Looks good

    Cons: Not enough on screen functions, Volume control buttons instead of a knob.

    I find this unit to be a great compromise between top-end units that have way more features than you'll ever use, and bottom end units that are lacking in features. The installation, into my Daughters Xterra, was a snap. I bought the optional XM receiver to go with it and it all works perfect. I only have two nit-picky complaints; the brackets are supposed to use four screws, but only three will line up. The second, is the bezel cover that fits sloppily around the unit and leaves a sizable gap along the bottom of the unit. (Nit-picky....I know). Crutchfield supplied a free installation kit that frankly I did not use or need.

    Pros: Nice features that does everything most would want. The choice of any color lights on the display and back lighting is a nice feature too. Good instructions and optional hook-up's available.

    Cons: A little cheesy on the bezel fit and finish. A rear USB plug for an iPod controller would sure be nice.

    Great unit, nice for the price

    Excellent upgrade for my 2002 Monte Carlo SS. Don't buy the gmos 100 adapter, but go with the gmos 104. Steering wheel control interface works flawlessly. For those who say they can't watch DVD's while car is in motion, there is a work-around for this. Do a google search, or ask an installation professional. Overall, a great value for the price. Not perfect, but good for a budget build.

    Pros: Cool looking display. Lots of presets for radio and XM stations. Works perfect with steering wheel controls (interface purchase required)

    Cons: No volume knob. Not the most user-friendly features, but once you get used to it, everything is good. Invest in an amplifier. 14 watt RMS will not give you the punch you need. USB read time takes kind of long.

    Swapped out my factory install radio with this unit in my 2008 Ford F-150. Money well spent for sure. Better audio quality, volume, more features, and lots of add on potential. I later purchased the necessary cable so I could hook my iPod directly to the unit. Love that I can control the ipod and features directly from the touch screen display of the unit. The instructions were not 100% clear but I was able to manage

    Replaced factory radio in 2001 Ranger. Excellent upgrade with increased volume and clarity. The base unit has room for upgrades (navigation, camera, Bluetooth)

    Pros: A lot

    Cons: the display in radio mode looks "cheap" to me. the clock display is small. But maybe these things can be changed as I learn more about the radio. Won't charge my android with the USB port.

    My first install. Took way longer than I wanted with all the solder connections, but the actual swap out wasn't too bad. Had a little trouble with getting the harness out of the way to get radio in. Also, do not cut anything off of the mounting bracket before you dry fit it. I read reviews saying the same, but I got anxious and decided to follow directions. The directions had me cut off the brackets that I needed. It is useless now. I installed this in a 2005 tahoe with out Bose. Overall, the radio is great for the price and has the capability to expand such as woofer, satellite , rear view , Bluetooth etc... The mounting bracket and instructions are junk!! Do not cut until you have old receiver out.

    Fine unit, however the manual is somewhat vague. Don't expect to hook up to a larger screen to view DVD's and have it a larger picture. The same size picture is all you'll get. It has different aspect ratio's, but they don't change actual screen size. This unit is built for in dash car application. So If you want to use it in a Motor home, boat, etc., you will always see the "Warning: you can't view DVD's while driving!! screen.

    Pros: Sounds good

    Cons: If it's installed in anything other than a car or truck , you may be unhappy with the purchase.

    Got this for a relative who really liked my 2 yr old Pioneer System w/backup camera that is very similar to this new one. Easy to install, and setup, though I already had experience with setting up my older unit. Like the improvements Pioneer made in the user interface, wish mine had those features. The backup camera feature is great and was used in this install. GM dealer wanted over $700 just to install a backup camera into his 2011 Impala.

    Pros: Good sound, nice interface, plenty of connections for almost all applications.

    Cons: User/Install guide could be bigger. Text very small. Also would be nice to have an SD card slot like my older unit has.

    Great Head Unit

    As you may have been able to tell by my Display Name... I punched my head unit over a heated debate. As the weeks drudged on I decided that I needed to replace the old broken one. After researching for a few more weeks I got the Pioneer-1400AVH DVD/whatever the heck all the numbers and letters are.

    I have to say it took about 30 minutes to install and all my friends think its pretty bad. Gets the job done.

    Pros: It works

    Cons: does not come with a late 70's muscle car

    Solid Improvement

    Upgraded to this unit from my stock '05 WRX 6-cd changer. Stock unit didn't read burned CDs well, had sketchy radio reception on some stations, and just didn't do it for me. it felt like my music should sound better. This unit does way more stuff than I'll probably need, but I like it a lot thus far. Radio reception is definitely better though I still get a little static occasionally. I understand my window tint could affect that though, so maybe that's it. It's better than before and that's what's important. The USB port is awesome and I plugged a TINY 16gig USB into that since I don't use an MP3 player. The menu'ing is great though loading the USB source takes a little bit of time. Not a big deal. CD quality is excellent, it plays DVDs well, and I intend to use the aux in to stream pandora from my android phone. The screen gets a LITTLE harder to read in direct sunlight when my sunroof is open, but it's absolutely still readable. I'm getting used to touch screen still but that's just a matter of time. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase.

    Pros: Front USB port is awesome. Front aux in is good too, and i THINK it has a back one if you want to hide your cable? plays CDs and DVDs very well. Touch screen is accurate and responsive. Cool factor is high. Changing the lighting color is neat, and you can have it automatically cycle through all the colors continuously if you don't want to pick just one.

    Cons: While my radio reception got better from my stock unit, there is still a little static at some times on some stations - not all the time. Again, i think i read somewhere that window tinting can negatively affect radio reception, so maybe that's it. The USB source loads a little slow, but who cares. it works and that's all that matters.

    Very pleased with this unit. Performs exactly as I anticipated. The USB up front is very convenient for playing 1000's of songs off of a small thumbdrive, and the menu is very easy to navigate through. Like the change of colors. Was easy to customize the green to match the interior lights of my '06 GTO. Easy installation thanks to very detailed instructions provided by the Crutchfield folks

    Pros: Ease of use, very user friendly, and good picture on the movies

    Cons: None

    Meh

    Pioneer managed to cram a lot of stuff into a small box without making sure that it would necessarily work well. This is the base model which allows you to add components that may or may not function. Right away, there's a list of iPods and iPhone models that don't work with its app mode and all android devices completely out of the question. If you want navigation, be prepared to spend at least 300 for the add-on, plus an extra 150 every time you want a new map. The other components aren't that much better price-wise and you'll end up bankrupt or running out of space to store them all if you want all of the features. In theory, you can divert your rear speaker to a 4ohm sub, but with an RMS of 18, it's gonna be pretty small and you'll need to buy that amp. The manual is near useless and is poorly organised, while the trim that goes around the unit to fit into your double DIN slot doesn't even fit around the HU. I had to sand it down and eventually I just bought the Metra kit. If you use the USB slot with anything larger than 4g, you're going to be waiting for up to two minutes before it can read your songs. If you dare to use a non-Apple product with it, you can expect the most bizarrely messed up tags and no playlists or file organisation whatsoever.

    Pros: A definite upgrade from your OEM system, price

    Cons: Need significant patience with USB, add-ons are wildly overpriced and unwieldy, internal amp is underpowered to do any real speaker upgrades.

    At this pricepoint you can't go wrong with this unit. I've been running Pioneer decks for 14 years now, and this is my first venture into touch screen/double DIN territory. Its the same Pioneer quality and tunability I've come to expect. I love that it's "stripped down" compared to alot of DVD units on the market to get it to a price that makes it easy to get into the segment, yet has the capability to upgrade features as you go if you're so inclined.

    I did quite a bit of homework on the iDevice cord to be used with this unit. In the end I ended up buying the knock-off of the expensive Pioneer cord and it has worked just fine for what I use it for; I read to play video from the iDevice on the headunit you need the cord, but to just control the device and use Pandora, even the standard white cord that comes with the iDevice works just fine, even displaying album artwork and song.station information. So if you only intend to play and control your music, don't bother with another cord.

    Pros: - Great price first and foremost. - Typical Pioneer sound tunability (multi-band EQ, hi/lo pass filters, boost, loudness, sonic center control, etc) - Visual customization (background and button colors/graphics) - Auto-dim with headlights on and touch screen sensativity adjustability - iPod/iPhone controlability through the standard iDevice cord (you dont need the special one if you just want to control the music/use Pandora

    Cons: The only thing i don't like about the unit is when switching from Pandora mode to iPod mode; when you switch to iPod mode it keeps playing the Pandora song that was going. You have to bring up the menu to select a song and it plays iPod music just fine from then on. Not a deal breaker, but annoying nonetheless.

    PERFECT!!!

    You just can't go wrong with Pioneer, installed this unit in my 03 Caddy CTS and love it what a difference!!!

    Pros: High and Low Filters, Color changing display, remote, iPod control, Easy to use touch screen, and mode button to hide screen from any unwanted attention!!!!

    Cons: Not One So Far!!!!

    AWESOME

    This radio is great for someone who is looking to add ipod connectivity to there vehicle. The touchscreen works great. You do not have to press hard to make a selection. Color options for the screen and the buttons are pretty cool too. The only thing I dont like is that the usb port is in the front so you have your ipod cable hanging out the bottom left corner of the unit. Wish it was out of the back so its hidden but i can live with it. Far as installing yourself, this thing is easy. I installed this in my '01 Honda Acccord with no problems. I purchased a relay and bypassed the parking brake and still had it installed in under an hour. With the parts Cructhfield gives you, You have everything you need except crimp caps. If bluetooth isnt a factor for you than this radio is it. If you do want bluetooth than go with the P2400.

    Pros: too many to list

    Cons: Usb port in front

    Very Happy

    Great unit for an upgrade to my 2002 Explorer. This was my first time installing an aftermarket unit and the process was pretty seamless. Crutchfield support quickly answered the few questions I had and made the process easy. This unit made my stock speakers sound so much better - I really wasn't expecting such a difference. The IPod operation is simple and intuitive. We took a cross-state trip the day after installation and it was a great time to test out all of the features. So far I can only say good things about it.
