Our take on the Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD

by Ken Nail
Pioneer

DVD receivers: They're not just for movies

DVD receivers add a new level of entertainment to your vehicle. You can watch a movie on the screen when you're parked on a Saturday night, or play a DVD through your rear seat video setup on the road. Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger. Most DVD receivers feature a USB input for audio from your iPod, and the ability to add an adapter that allows video to display on the screen. Some receivers even offer connections for a center speaker and a subwoofer, so you can build a full-fledged theater in your car, just like at home.

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.

    Touchscreen Display

    5.8" TFT LCD Touchscreen Color Display: The AVH-P1400DVD features a 5.8" TFT Active Matrix, 16:9 widescreen touchscreen display. The resolution of the display is 480 x 240 x RGB, for a total of 345,600 pixels. The touchscreen display allows you to control this unit and a connected component such as an iPod/iPhone, Satellite radio receiver, HD Radio tuner, or USB Flash memory. Menus appear on screen for making function choices, audio adjustments, and setting up the system. The unit has a front-loading disc-slot to make loading your disc easier, because there is no panel to slide or fold-down.

    Note: The fixed touchscreen display is not removable.

    Multilingual Display: The Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD offers English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish text.

    Video Adjustments: You can store numerous video settings for each source and the optional rear view camera; including brightness (adjusts the black intensity), contrast (adjusts contrast), color (adjusts color saturation), hue (adjusts the tone of color), temperature (adjust the color temperature), RGB (adjusts phase shifting), and black level (emphasizes dark portions of images).

    Widescreen Modes: You can choose from the following widescreen modes when playing back video:

    • Full: A 4:3 picture is enlarged in the horizontal direction only, enabling you to enjoy a 4:3 picture without any omissions.
    • Just: The picture is enlarged slightly at the center and the amount of enlargement increases horizontally toward the ends of the picture.
    • Zoom: A 4:3 picture is enlarged in the same proportion both vertically and horizontally; ideal for a 16:9 screen.
    • Cinema: A picture is enlarged by the same proportion as Full or Zoom in the horizontal direction and by an intermediate proportion between Full and Zoom in the vertical direction.
    • Normal: A 4:3 picture is displayed as it is.

    On Screen Display Color & Background Adjustment: The color of the on-screen display can be set to red, amber, green, blue or white. The background can be set to one of four preset still images, one of three preset movie images, a stored JPEG image, a video image from the external input, the clock, or turned Off.

    Front-Panel Control w/ Custom Illumination: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons along the left edge of the screen. The color of the button illumination can be set to red, amber, green, blue, white, or scan (constantly cycling through the color spectrum). You can also create a custom color to match your vehicle's interior lighting (112 colors to choose from).

    Dimmer: To prevent the display from being too bright at night, the display is automatically dimmed when the car's headlights are turned on. The automatic dimmer function only works when the orange/white illumination wire in the wiring harness is connected to the vehicle's headlight circuit.

    Parking Brake Interlock: This unit has a parking brake interlock system that prohibits viewing of video programming and operating certain controls when the vehicle is in motion. In order to watch video on the in-dash monitor, the vehicle must be parked with the parking brake engaged. The head unit's light green wire must be connected to your vehicle's parking brake detection circuit.

    Note: The head unit's touchscreen will display "Attention! Viewing of front seat video source while driving is strictly prohibited", if you try to watch a video when your vehicle is in motion.

    2-DIN Chassis: The Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double DIN" or size DD), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets. There is also an optional double-DIN sleeve ( 130ADTV133, sold separately) available for this unit that will allow you to Euro-mount or custom mount the Pioneer head unit in your vehicle.

    Note: As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    Note: The iPod nano (7th gen), iPod touch (5th gen), and iPhone 5 supports audio playback only; use the Lighting-to-USB cable that came with the Apple device to connect to the head unit.

    iPod/iPhone DAC Bypass: Because the Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD uses its USB connection for audio & control transfer, your iPod/iPhone's stored music is loaded instantly to the head unit and sound quality is maximized through the head unit's 24-bit D/A converter, allowing for a Signal-to-Noise ratio up to 96dB.

    iPod/iPhone Control: The Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD offers 3 iPod/iPhone control modes - Head Unit, Passenger, and App mode.

In addition, the head unit offers Link Search, which allows you to play songs related to the currently playing song. Link Search lets the head unit create an album list of the currently playing artist, a song list of the currently playing album, or an album list of the currently playing genre. You can also select Random & Repeat functions for a certain song or specific folder.
    • iPod: The iPod control mode allows you to control stored audio/video content from your connected iPod/iPhone's clickwheel or touchscreen. This is very useful for the person riding in your passenger seat.

The head unit's LCD touchscreen will only display the text - 'App Mode'.

    Pandora App: The free Pandora App lets you play music from the Pandora music service through the Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD using your connected Apple iPhone, via the Pioneer CD-IU51V iPod connector cable (sold separately) or the USB/iPod dock cable that came with your iPhone. To access Pandora you must have an Apple iPhone (iOS 3.0+) with the latest version of the Pandora Radio application from Apple's iTunes App Store.

    Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

    MusicSphere: Pioneer's new proprietary MusicSphere technology allows you to enjoy your music in a new way by creating unique mood-based playlists via iTunes for your Apple iOS device. When installed on your Windows PC, the MusicSphere iTunes plug-in software will analyze the entire music library and create specialized playlists based on various musical attributes such as feeling (bright, energetic, gloomy, relaxing calm), rhythm pattern, beats per minute (BPM), year of the song and/or date added to the device. Additionally, through the MusicSphere, you can select preferred parameters of your music to create a "DJ Playlist". You can download MusicSphere directly to your Windows PC from the Pioneer website.

    Radio Functions

    Supertuner IIID AM/FM Tuner: The Supertuner IIID AM/FM tuner features Feed Forward Control, which avoids multi-path interference. This pre-detection of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion. In addition, the Supertuner IIID creates enhanced stereo during multi-path interference, unlike conventional tuners that collapse to mono. Digital processing reduces distortion, and improves Signal-to-Noise Ratio and stereo separation. Advanced analog technology improves signal processing sensitivity.

    RDS: The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible AM/FM stations.

    BSM (Best Stations Memory): BSM lets you automatically store the six strongest stations under preset buttons 1-6 of the currently tuned band. The tuner has 3 FM banks and 1 AM bank. You can store 6 presets for each bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM presets.

    Local Tuning: Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. There are 4 level of sensitivity for FM and two levels for AM. The higher settings allow reception of only the strongest stations, while lower settings let you receive progressively weaker stations.

    XM Satellite Radio Ready: You can connect and control Pioneer's GEX-P920XM XM tuner (130P920XM, sold separately).

    Note: A subscription to XM, plus the proper antenna is required in order to receive satellite radio programming.

    HD Radio Ready: This unit is compatible with the optional Pioneer GEX-P20HD HD Radio tuner ( 130GEXP20H, sold separately) allowing you to tune available HD Radio stations. HD Radio features high quality audio, FM multi-casting, and data services. The add-on HD Radio tuner also supports iTunes Tagging which allows you to save song information (tag) from an HD Radio broadcasting station to your connected iPod or iPhone. The saved songs will show up in a playlist called "Tagged" in iTunes the next time you sync your iPod. Then you can directly buy the songs you want from the iTunes Music Store. The optional HD Radio tuner connects through the head unit's IP-BUS interface.

    Note: Right now there are about 2,000 radio stations broadcasting using digital HD Radio technology in the U.S. To find HD Radio stations in your area, visit the HD Radio website.

    Audio Section

    24-Bit/96kHz DAC: For superb quality audio playback from DVDs, CDs, and flash media, the Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD is equipped with a 24-bit/96kHz digital-to-analog converter.

    MOSFET50 Internal Amplifier: This receiver is equipped with a 50 watts x 4 (peak) MOSFET amplifier for low distortion, high power output. The amplifier is strong enough to power small subwoofers to moderate volume levels in compact cars and pickups. For higher volume levels from subwoofers, an optional amplifier may be connected to the preamp outputs.

    CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the AVH-P1400DVD are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs are as follows:

    • CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (or 50 watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)

    EEQ (Easy EQ): there are seven stored equalizer curves which you can easily recall at any time. You can choose from - Powerful, Natural, Vocal, Super Bass, Flat, Custom 1, or Custom 2.

    8-Band Graphic EQ: The Custom 1 and Custom 2 EQ modes allow you to manually adjust the level (+/- 12dB) of each band of the head unit's 8-band graphic equalizer (40Hz, 80Hz, 200Hz, 400Hz, 1kHz, 2.5kHz, 8kHz, and10kHz).

    Auto EQ (Optional): The auto-equalizer automatically measures your car's interior acoustic characteristics, and then creates an auto-equalizer curve base on that information. The Pioneer CD-MC20 Auto-EQ microphone ( 130CDMC20, sold separately) is required to use this function. The Pioneer CD-MC20 Auto-EQ microphone plugs into your compatible Pioneer A/V receiver's front-panel 3.5mm input. The Auto-EQ microphone should be placed in the center of your vehicle's driver seat headrest facing forward for EQ measurement.

    Sonic Center Control: Sound that is suited for the listening position can easily be created with this function. You can adjust sound more toward the listening position left (7) to right (7).

    Loudness: The Loudness function compensates for deficiencies in the low- and high-frequency ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness to High, Mid, Low, or Off.

    Bass Boost: You can easily boost the subwoofer bass level by using the Bass Boost function. The Bass Boost feature allows you increase the subwoofer level from 0 to +6 (12dB).

    Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. When the Advanced Sound Retriever is on, the high frequency range is compensated to match the frequency response curve to the original sound. There are two available levels of the Advanced Sound Retriever effect.

    Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Settings are based on the volume level of the FM tuner, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from -4 dB to +4 dB.

    2V/6ch Preamp Outputs: The Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD is equipped with three 2.0-volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Subwoofer). The front and rear speakers are fading with high-pass crossover filters, while the subwoofer output is non-fading with a low-pass crossover filter.

    • Front & Rear Preamp Outputs: If you do not want low frequency sounds to play from the front or rear speaker preamp outputs (or speaker outputs), you can turn on the 12dB/octave High Pass Filter. The HPF has a selectable cutoff frequency (50, 63, 80, 100, or 125 Hz). Only frequencies higher than those in the selected range are output through the speakers.
    • Subwoofer Output: The unit has a pair of dedicated non-fading RCA subwoofer outputs with a low-pass filter, phase adjustment, and output level. When the subwoofer output is turned on, you can select the frequency of the 18dB/octave low pass filter (50, 63, 80, 100, or 125 Hz), select the subwoofer phase (normal/reverse), and the subwoofer gain (+6 to -24).

    Rear Channel Speaker Output: You can choose to use the rear channel output (speaker and preout) for full-range speaker or subwoofer. If you select "subwoofer", you can connect a 4-ohm subwoofer directly to each rear speaker lead, or a 2-ohm subwoofer to one of the rear speaker leads, without using an external amplifier.

    Telephone Mute/Attenuator: Sound from your system is muted or attenuated automatically when a phone signal is received when you have hardwired your mobile phone system to the mute wire (yellow/black) of this unit.

    AV Connections

    Dual AV Inputs: The Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD has dual AV inputs to connect two external audio/video sources.

    • AV Auxiliary Input: The AVH-P1400DVD has an AV 3.5mm mini-jack auxiliary input on the front-panel panel for connecting a portable audio/video device.
    • AV RCA Input: There is a rear-panel A/V input (composite video/stereo RCA audio) for connecting a video component such as a mobile TV tuner or game console.

    Video Output: The AVH-P1400DVD features a rear-panel composite video output that allows you to connect an external display to the unit. You can play back the same video source which is being played on the head unit. You can select the unit to output a 16:9, Letter-Box or Pan-Scan aspect ratio to match your external display's screen size.

    Note: You cannot play DivX files on the unit's monitor and a connected external monitor at the same time.

    Rear View Camera: The AVH-P1400DVD is equipped with a composite video Rear View Camera input. The unit features a function that automatically switches to the rear camera image (Rear View Camera input jack) when an optional rear camera ( 130NDBC5, sold separately) is installed. When the transmission is in reverse, the screen automatically switches to the rear view camera (the violet/white wire in the AVH-P1400DVD's harness must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching). Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.7 seconds. Pioneer recommends using a camera with a mirror image (reversed) output.

    Note: Audio from your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.

    Navigation Ready: The Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD allows you to connect the Pioneer AVIC-U250 add-on navigation unit (sold separately) through its RGB Input. This versatile hideaway unit allows you to switch to navigation mode with the touch of a button. Get to your destination by inputting an address or search through the POI library while enjoying whatever source is currently playing.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD includes an IR remote control (CXE5116) for wireless operation of the multimedia head unit and your connected devices.

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    Great Deck

    Written By Cervantes, Okinawa, Japan on Sunday, February 17, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    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

    Good price but lacking features

    Written By KentM, Roseburg, OR on Wednesday, January 02, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    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.

    A perfect compromise

    Written By JJ P, Grand Junction, CO on Sunday, December 30, 2012
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    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

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    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

    Picture is nice, functions are reasonably well laid out. You get a good number of features for the price.
    Pros:
    Good price point, nice features for price, good sound quality
    Cons:
    On occasion it randomly jumps to a different screen when turning volume down, low power especially if you are using a aftermarket speaker.

    good upgrade

    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.

    Great radio, lousy mounting bracket

    Written By Great upgrade, Wilmington, DE on Sunday, November 18, 2012

    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.

    Hands down five stars across the board. Makes my ranger sound AMAZING!! And the pandora feature is perfect. Lets you control everything from the unit and still leaves your phone free to lock or text or whatever your heart desires. Bottom line: if your unsure just get it! You won't be disappointed!!
    Pros:
    Everything

    The only thing that I did not like about this product is the fact that you can't play videos unless the vehicle is on park and the parking brake is on.

    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.

    Good bang for your buck, fits perfectly in my dash and with the backlighting it matches my car's interior as well.
    Pros:
    Fit, capabilities and price.
    Cons:
    Volume buttons are small, I'd prefer a knob, however, a remote is included as well.

    Great Unit for the Price

    Written By Hawkeye, Green Bay, WI on Sunday, October 07, 2012
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    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

    Written By Punched My Original Head Unit, Here, Now on Tuesday, September 04, 2012
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    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

    Written By JCar, Connecticut on Friday, August 31, 2012
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    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

    Written By Etcetera, Edmonton on Friday, August 24, 2012
     
    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.

    Great unit for the price

    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.

    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
