Our take on the Pioneer AVH-P3400BH

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.

Step up with Bluetooth® and an HD Radio™ tuner
The AVH-P3400BH DVD receiver shares a 5.8" screen, user-friendly touchscreen controls, and a customizable display with the models below it in Pioneer's lineup. But the addition of Bluetooth functionality and an HD Radio tuner takes this versatile Pioneer to the next level.

Pioneer AVH-P3400BH

Bluetooth for convenience and safety
Bluetooth lets you keep your eyes on the road — when a call comes in, you simply press a button on the receiver to talk hands-free, as if the caller is sitting next to you. You can also access your phone book from the screen, so it's easy to make outgoing calls. Bluetooth audio streaming lets you play content from your compatible device through the receiver, without hooking up any cables.

HD Radio
What's the story on HD Radio? Simply the best sound ever to come over the airwaves, that's what. When you tune in a station broadcasting an HD Radio signal, you'll enjoy near CD-quality FM, plus static-free AM with improved fidelity. There's nothing extra to do and no fees to pay — just tune in free HD Radio over the air, like a regular radio station.

Great audio and video versatility
If you connect your iPhone to the receiver with Pioneer's CD-IU51V cable, you can take charge of your Pandora® account from the touchscreen, complete with thumbs-up and thumbs-down controls. Plug in your iPod® to the front-panel USB input, and you'll be able to use the receiver's controls to access your playlists, with handy tools like Alphabet Search to help you find the song or album you want in a snap. And the 1-amp USB port will charge your devices quickly if the battery is run down.

The 5.8" LCD screen plays DVDs in bright, clear detail when you're parked. You'll need Pioneer's CD-IU51V cable to view video content from your iPod or iPhone® when parked, , or to show video on your backseat screens so your passengers can watch while you drive.

Rear panel

Add navigation and more
Pioneer's AVIC-U220 navigation module converts the AVH-3400BH into a full-fledged navigation receiver. 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.

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.

    Touchscreen Display

    5.8" TFT LCD Touchscreen Color Display: The AVH-P3400BH 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 paired Bluetooth device, or a connected component such as an iPod/iPhone, Satellite radio receiver, 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. The fixed touchscreen display is not removable.

    Multilingual Display: The Pioneer AVH-P3400BH 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. You can turn the dimmer on or off. 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. 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-P3400BH 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. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    HD Radio

    HD Radio: The Pioneer AVH-P3400BH's built-in HD Radio tuner lets you listen to the radio with the same fidelity as your digital music. HD Radio features high quality audio, FM multi-casting, and data services. With HD Radio, your FM stations offer near CD-quality sound, AM stations provide FM-like sound, and there is crystal-clear reception with no audio distortion. Best of all, HD Radio is 100% subscription free. HD Radio is the system for digital AM and FM broadcasting in the U.S. More than 2,000 radio stations are broadcasting their primary signals in digital HD Radio technology, as a free service. Go to HDRadio.com to check for HD Radio stations in your area. The unit's tuner also supports analog AM/FM broadcasts.

    Multicasting: In addition to conventional broadcasts, with HD Radio broadcasting it is possible to choose from up to 3 multicast programs (HD1 to HD3, and analog). There are also data programs for each program.

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

    iTunes Tagging: It is possible to save the song's information (tag) from a HD Radio broadcasting station to your USB-direct connected iPod/iPhone. The songs will show up in a playlist called "Tagged" in iTunes the next time you sync your iPod/iPhone. Then you can directly buy the songs you want from the iTunes Music Store.

    Supertuner IIID: The Supertuner IIID 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.

    Reception Blending: If a digital broadcast reception condition gets poor, this unit automatically switches to the analog broadcast of the same frequency level. If this function is set to "On", the tuner switches between digital broadcast and analog broadcast automatically. If this function is 'Off', reception will be conducted within an analog broadcast.

    BSM (Best Stations Memory): The BSM (Best Stations Memory) function lets you automatically store the six strongest analog or HD 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.

    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.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The AVH-P3400BH is equipped with built-in Bluetooth ver. 3.0 (powered by Parrot) allowing to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. Bluetooth Technology is a short-range wireless radio connectivity technology that was developed as a cable replacement for mobile phones and other electronic devices. Bluetooth operates in 2.4 GHz frequency range and transmits voice and data at speeds up to 1 megabit per second.

    Bluetooth Profiles: In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP (Hands Free Profile), HSP (Head Set Profile), OPP (Object Push Profile), PBAB (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).

    Phone Pairing: Up to 5 Bluetooth-compatible devices can be registered to this head unit. Only one device can be used at a time. Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Pioneer AVH-P3400BH.

    Hands-Free Communication: The AVH-P3400BH supports wireless hands-free communication (HFP/HSP/OPP/PBAB) for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The head unit will display the caller's information and an audible ring tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker during an incoming call. You can manually answer an incoming call or have the unit automatically answer the call. The AVH-P3400BH allows you to carry on a phone conversation from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone using the head unit's external microphone and your car audio speakers. During a conversation you can adjust the volume, as well as switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode. Using the AVH-P3400BH, you can dial a phone number in one of the following ways:

    • Entering a Phone Number: You can make a call by entering the phone number using the head unit's on-screen keypad (0-9, *, #, +, C).
    • Speed (Preset) Dialing: You can easily store up to six phone numbers as presets for speed dialing.
    • Phone Book: The phone book in your Bluetooth enabled cellular phone will be transferred automatically when the phone is paired to this unit. After finding the number you want to call in the phone book, you can select the entry and make the call. If a lot of numbers are registered in the phone book, you can search for the phone number by alphabet search mode.
    • Call Log: The 80 most recent calls dialed, received, and missed are stored in memory. You can browse them and call numbers from these lists.

    Note: Advanced phone operations that require attention, such as dialing numbers on the monitor or adjusting Bluetooth settings, are prohibited while driving. The vehicle must have the parking brake engaged to access these functions.

    External Microphone: During your wireless phone call, you can talk into the head unit's included external microphone, and listen to the other party through the vehicle's speaker system. The external microphone provides better performance in noisy environments than the integrated microphone found on the front-panel of many aftermarket or factory radios. The microphone features a 13' cord that plugs into the back of the radio, and comes with an adjustable visor-mount clip. The microphone measures 0.475" (diameter) x 1.445" (depth). The unit is not equipped with an integrated microphone. The external microphone must be installed for Bluetooth hands-free communication.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The Pioneer AVH-P3400BH also supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone. The AVH-P3400BH will be able to control basic playback features; such as Play/Pause, Skip Next/Previous, and Random/Repeat. When an incoming or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your music will resume.

    Note: The Pioneer head unit requires an optional Bluetooth firmware update (HW05-SW01.27.20) to enable Bluetooth AVRCP control and metadata display for the iPhone 5 or other Apple iOS6 device. If you do not own an iPhone 5 or iOS6 device, there is no need to install this update.

    Audio Section

    24-Bit/96kHz DAC: For superb quality audio playback from DVDs, CDs, and flash media, the Pioneer AVH-P3400BH 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-P3400BH 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-P3400BH 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-P3400BH has dual AV inputs to connect two external audio/video sources.

    • AV Auxiliary Input: The AVH-P3400BH 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-P3400BH 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. You cannot play DivX files on the unit's monitor and a connected external monitor at the same time.

    Rear View Camera: The AVH-P3400BH 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-P3400BH'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. Audio from your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.

    Navigation Ready: Easily upgrade to navigation with the addition of the Pioneer AVIC-U220 add-on navigation system (130AVIC220, sold separately). 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-P3400BH 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.

    I was looking for HD and Bluetooth built in and this one has it. So far the radio is great, placed in a 2004 F-150, matched it with Polk Audio and sounds really great. I don't even need to add an amp, the built in amp provides enough power
    Pros:
    HD and Bluetooth built in, good screen display, ease of use, bluetooth mic picks up very well and clear
    Cons:
    so far none to talk about

    Great Receiver

    Written By James S, Killeen, TX on Thursday, March 28, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I have no complaints with this stereo after reading the manual. I had some issues that I thought were the stereo, but just ended up being operator error. The bluetooth works works, no complaints from me or others on the other end. Used a backup camera with receiver and it works great once it was configured correctly on receiver. Screen has a good picture for the DVD and backup camera. The microphone that came with the stereo is plenty long enough to run the wire from the stereo, under the dash, up the a pillar, along the roof liner and up to the storage compartment/map lights. This was the optimal setup for my 03 Silverado, anywhere else and it picked up to much road noise or distortion for people on other end.
    Pros:
    HD Tuner, Bluetooth, Backup Camera ready, great sound
    Cons:
    Parking Brake Sequence for DVD Operation

    Android users, I strongly recommend that you confirm compatibility with your cell phone manufacturer before purchasing this unit.

    Pros:
    Looks and sounds great in my 2005 Nissan Maxima. Easy Bluetooth sync for hands free dialing
    Cons:
    Don't care for the manual layout. Very difficult to sync Bluetooth audio with my HTC Vivid. It connects about 20% of the time. Works like a champ with my wife's iPhone 5.

    Pioneer AVH-P3400BH

    Written By MartinF, South San Francisco on Wednesday, March 20, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This unit worked out perfectly: the way it looks, fits, and functions. I used the installation kit, and put padding on the rails below the head unit to avoid skipping. I have a lowered mustang that really feels the road. There was no way to attach the rear bracket that rides on the rails thus the padding. No skipping! Mounted the microphone behind my steering wheel. So it could be this project turned out BETTER than what professional installers would do ?? All I can say is that I'm way more than pleased with this product. It has excellent sound quality and additional power than most other units. It has an easy to use interface with all the functions I need, and then some...all leading me to say "hey, this thing is better than I thought it would be". Seems like it should cost alot more than this. I'm glad I went with the Pioneer DVD head unit that could receive HD radio. A concern I had was that it would take a long time to index my 16 gig flashdrive full of MP3s. But it does it in 10-15 seconds which is good enough for me.
    Pros:
    Great value. Great sound quality. Everything about it is beautiful to me. Puts a smile on my face LOL.
    Cons:
    Can't say there are any cons but I will say this. If they can make PANDORA work for iPhone why not my Android based HTC? I sense a bias there. Of course, it could still be made to work using the bluetooth function or the auxilliary input (which is on the front of the unit thank goodness).

    Solid quality from Pioneer

    Written By Bill W., West Harrison, In on Tuesday, March 19, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Easy to install, clean look, and loads of great features! Most of the features and settings are very easy to figure out from the start. Sound quality is excellent and the picture is as well. I found the DVD's safety setting to be very picky, sometimes the unit doesn't seem to read the signal when the vehicle is in park with the parking brake on and it keeps the screen disabled.
    Pros:
    Great Sound, easy to use, easy to install, and it looks good!
    Cons:
    DVD safety (park brake safety) is temperamental and seems to not work sometimes and refuse to let video show on screen.

    Love this head unit. I was debating between a couple different radios and figured I'd call the Crutchfield guys and see what they though of my comparison. A few questions about preference and this seemed like the best fit for me. Man am I glad that I made that call because this radio is exactly what I wanted.
    Pros:
    Added a back up camera which responds quickly with a clear image.
    Cons:
    Pressing the parking brake twice for the DVD to play is bothersome. Single press of the parking brake should be enough.

    Lots of color options for the display. Great IPOD integration( as long as you don't stay up to date with Apple updates. I had to reset my IPOD and install an older version. The newest version will keep you from displaying your album artwork on the display). The sound is great.
    Pros:
    Sound , easy use, looks awesome!
    Cons:
    more than I wanted to spend. GM had to include GMOS wire harness for safety chimes and onstar IPOD software discrepancy.

    Fantastic head unit with great features. Bluetooth with iPhone 4S and Pandora App worked seamlessly. Wiring harness and install sheet made install a snap! Made the factory speakers sound new again. Amp in head unit much cleaner and more powerful than factory Ford. 3 preamp outputs for amps if needed later.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I love having this touch and tactile interface unit in my car. Few things though.

    There is a video out there that leads you to believe you can work around attaching Pioneer's NAV system but just having Pioneer's exclusive cord for iPhones, and iphone and the GPS Motion X app. One problem, yes you can display that app's info and the map, but only while in park!

    Great variety of settings to make any aftermarket newbie like myself happy, the only thing i wish though is that the picture adjustment setting can be done while driving. Sure you can change the background and theme colors while driving, but not the dimmer option that ranges from 0-+48. You will need +48 during the day, but at night, jeez it's frighteningly bright, and you won't be able to switch it unless you quick engage the parking brake at a red light. I would at least wish for a preset dimness to choose from.

    I really feel app mode should be able to be done with any regular iPhone cord or generic, but then what do I know maybe there is a coding thing that you need a different cable for, but i don't like having to buy the exclusive cable from Pioneer for it, just seems like a way for them to get more money from you than the base price.

    Everything else works great. Phone menu is easy as well as switching between sources. great eq for this price and makes my 99 saturn sound great.
    Pros:
    - Great EQ - Very easy to use interface, and phone menu is fantastic. - Good build quality - Pretty responsive touch screen although not the most resolution, but you get what you pay for at this price point. - Everything is very modern and won't get out of date anytime soon.
    Cons:
    - Brightness adjustment hard to get to when you need to. - Can't use your own cord for App mode; must buy pioneer's.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The unit installs flush with no issues. Has great sound and picture. I have this in my 2004 Grand Prix.
    Pros:
    Does everything from CD, DVD, Phone, Hard Drive, and more.
    Cons:
    If you don't have an E-Brake with electrical switch to provide input to the head unit you can not watch movies.
