Enjoy your smartphone apps on the big screen

Face it, you can't live without your smartphone and the apps that help make your life easier. Pioneer's AppRadio 3 receiver lets you view those apps on its big 7” screen so it's easier to control them while you're on the road. You'll check out your favorite apps on a simplified menu that's designed for mobile use, so you can keep your eyes on the road instead of fumbling around with your phone.

The AppRadio 3 works with iPhone® 4, 4S, and 5, as well as select Android™ models, so you can enjoy compatibility regardless of what platform you're into. In order to enable all of these cool features offered by this Pioneer, you'll need to make sure that your smartphone's compatible with the AppRadio 3, and then pick out the right connection kit for your smartphone (sold separately). 

Pioneer SPH-DA110 AppRadio 3

Control your apps from the large 7" touchscreen.

Navigation, music streaming, and web browsing

AppRadio 3 has you covered by supporting some of the most popular apps available. You'll find plenty of apps to enjoy right now, including MotionX GPS Drive™, INRIX® traffic, AUPEO! Personal Radio, Pandora® Internet radio, and Pioneer's MIXTRAX, with more coming down the road. You'll have the advantage of a sleek app interface, and the apps will look great on the 7" capacitive touchscreen, which recognizes all zoom, swipe, and pinch gestures just like if you were using your smartphone.

Pioneer's innovative AppRadioLIVE streamlines your app info and functions into one easy-to-use interface. You'll enjoy quick access to your music, media, calendar, and other sources you subscribe to, just by downloading the AppRadioLIVE app and syncing your services. AppRadioLIVE works with your apps to provide visual map guidance and access to points of interest, as well as the ability to search for concerts, shows, and other local events of interest. And you can show several sources of information simultaneously, quickly shifting from one to another with a touch of your finger.

Note: AppRadio Mode and AppRadioLIVE are currently not compatible with iOS 8 due to stability and display issues. Please see "Details" for more information.

Siri™ Eyes Free 

If you have an iPhone 4S or 5, you'll hear Siri's voice prompts through your vehicle's sound system, and you can make commands or ask questions through the microphone that's included with this receiver. You can set reminders, ask for songs, request directions, or anything else you'd normally do with your iPhone.

Works with Android™ phones and features MirrorLink™ connectivity

The AppRadio 3 doesn't leave Android by the wayside when it comes to features, either. Not only will its App Mode support many Android phones, but this receiver takes it to the next level with MirrorLink support.  MirrorLink allows certain Nokia and Samsung smartphones (with more to come in the future) to display their interface on the AppRadio 3, so you can make phone calls, access map services, or check out music with ease. If you don't have a MirrorLink phone, you can still download a free Pioneer app that enables voice commands with your Android phone.

Talk hands-free and stream audio wirelessly with Bluetooth®

Built-in Bluetooth adds to the versatility of this cool receiver — pair your phone, and you'll be able to talk hands-free and access your phone book from the touchscreen. You can even stream audio from your smartphone to the receiver. 

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.

Complement your setup with a phone mount

The AppRadio 3 requires input from your iPhone from time to time — most notably when running the MotionX GPS Drive app. It's a good idea to mount your iPhone where it's easy to reach. Check out our selection of Pro.Fit mounts.

Don't care about playing CDs or DVDs? Pioneer's SPH-DA110 AppRadio 3 offers all the same features without disc playback.

    Easy install, nightmare connectivity for android galaxy s4 with mirror link. 4 days and counting still can not get it to fully connect. So half the radio's functions and the reason I bought it is useless. Read many many forums and seems I am not the only one with this issue.

    Pros: Cool layout , nice funtionality.

    Cons: Difficult to connect with galaxy S4 . Limited use.

    I selected this radio for it's Android integration capability. All and all this is a great unit that seems to be built well and installs easily. I have been very pleased with the integrated bluetooth features seamlessly integrating calling features of my phone and the unit.

    Pros: Integrated Bluetooth Android integration (especially with ARUnchained) Bright display

    Cons: No video outs Over protective safety features (prevents navigation options while driving) FM/AM Tuner features such as seek (unless I missed this option in the manual which I did not receive)

    I liked everything about this radio and DVD player w/ application capabilities. I liked everything except trying to connect to android Samsung S4. When follow instructions and asking for a little support. Found instructions were poor. They need to give for informative instructions. After buying a number of cables and adapters I was able to get it to work with applications.

    Cons: Good value for the money. I added a back up camera. Works great after getting my galaxy s4 to work with applications.

    If you have a Samsung phone PASS right by this unit. I have spent weeks trying to bring it up with no success. The Pioneer app is complete junk. Do a search and see all the problems others have had. If you are very adept at rooting your phone, willing to continually tinker with software find another head unit.

    Pros: Looks like it would be a great product but I never had the chance to find out.

    Cons: Impossible to setup. I am returning the boat anchor.

    I picked this up about last year when it was on sale for $399. It really is a great stereo but if you don't know your way around technology, it can be a little confusing to use. At first it kind of disappointed me with all the restrictions, but that all changed once I got an app called Appradio Unchained. I am now using the appradio to its full potential by fully mirroring my phone (Samsung Galaxy S4 Active) on the Appradio's 7"screen. I can use my favorite apps like Spotify, YouTube, Google Maps etc. If you are tech savvy then this is the right choice for you.

    Pros: 7" Touch screen Plays CD's & DVD's Bluetooth With the right software you can use this to it's full potential

    Cons: Requires extra cables Not very customizable Very restricted use

    I'm so disappointed with this thing. It's slow to respond to touches. It doesn't have a remote?! I thought that would have been a no brainer. When driving and trying to switch presets on fm I constantly hit the wrong one, several times I've accidentally hit the "bsm" button and all my presets erase, so irritating! I no longer use the appradio function as it never wants to work. Every time I try to leave an app and go to another one it has to reconnect. I can't even count how many times I had to unplug the phone and plug back in to get it to reopen. Which brings me to my next issue, the cables required to use appradio are horrendous! I had all this crap hanging out of my dash. It really takes away from the clean look of the stereo when you need 8ft of cable hanging out to use it. I ripped all that out and just use Bluetooth now. Another complaint I have, and maybe I should have just known, but they don't tell you when you buy it that all the apps cost extra money! For the money I spent for this stereo and the only thing included app is pandora?! Plus if you plan on using any of them on the road you better up your data plans. The apps that are free lack reliability. The music player through appradio sucks. Once in there you lose the clock, and if you hit home to see it the music shuts off then you have to start all over. Even in Bluetooth mode it doesn't like to reconnect after the car is shut off then restarted, even if the phone didn't leave the vehicle!

    Pros: Very clean looking, great sound

    Cons: No remote, not user friendly at all

    This is a great stereo, beautiful, well built, sounds great but.....it's not where it needs to be yet! I wanted to interface with my iphone (4s) and i thought that app radio would be perfect - it wasnt. The biggest problem is/was that you can use the radio OR the apps on your phone - but not both at the same time. Connecting the phone to the radio was unfortunately hit or miss. Used it for 2 weeks and couldn't determine if the radio had to be 100% booted before you plugged in your phone or vice-versa or what the process was. Navigation was good (IGO PRIMO) once I forked out the $ to a) buy the application and THEN the app radio connector software OUCH! There are not a lot of applications for app radio that are free or truly free. Most are trial packages. IF this had nav builtin this would be the PERFECT RADIO but alas it doesn't.

    Look Im not downing the radio just saying that it ISNT READY FOR PRIME TIME yet.... I wanted it to work so much that I let myself down.

    SIRI integration was EXCELLENT and actually FUN! The radio's look and feel were elegant compared to most on the market. Install and set up were a BREEZE (2000 Nissan Frontier crew cab) and looked AWESOME in my truck. touch screen was responsive, the radio sounded great and easy to use!

    Overall, if I didn't need navi I'd just use the Bluetooth connection with my iphone and it would have been the perfect choice!

    Pros: beautiful, well built sounds great. easy install, set-up

    Cons: doesn't multi-task between the phone and radio. Can use navi via appradio but can't listen to the radio while you do. TOO dependent on the phone. Applications cost LOADS, iphone 4s cable was expensive,

    Happy to report that the HTC ONE (M8) works with the AppRadio 3. Plug it in the first time MirrorLink pop up in the center of the dash and I had total control of my phone from the head unit. AWSOME!

    Pros: Updates, great to have map and other updates in days instead of years or nether, having hands free access to phone while driving.

    Cons: MirrorLink not updating the list of compatible devices. I had to gamble if this phone would work with this radio. It did very happy.

    So I used this bone stock for about 3-4 months and I have to say it wasn't that great even when in "app" mode with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Apps are very limited and doesn't look to be expanding any time soon. Sounds good (better than my stock radio) looks good, all in all an average aftermarket radio. Normally id end my rant here and give this a 3 star. BUT I found a couple ways to not only skip the stupid appradio app but be able to control my ENTIRE phone! now i can use all my apps (Facebook, youtube, spotify, reddit,pandora just to name a few)! So this radio is now better than any $1000+ I've seen due to the variety of apps in the play store. I can see why pioneer wouldn't do this factory stock as if your not careful its pretty distracting. But if you know your way around phone software its definitely worth it.

    Pros: Sleek design, sounds great, possibilities explode with the right software, cd tray is cool to impress people that are haven't seen it.

    Cons: very limited out of the box, no HD radio, No aux input is inconvenient, very small bluetooth memory

    The AppRadio has a great number of options for extracting cool features using your smart phone and the built in touchscreen display. I attached bot a Samsung Android device and an iPhone 5C and am using Pandora, Maps on screen, and controlling MP3s on Amazon Cloud player through mine and my wife's phone. My cadiilac Escalade is much more enjoyable on long trips.

    Pros: Good touch response, nice features, easy install, good sound, appealing look.

    Cons: Data usage on phone increases with use. Interface limitations while driving (parking brake off). Startup screen prompt is annoying.

    Like had been mentioned before, the pressing okay everything's it turns on is annoying, the fact of having to reload the app everything's something happens is a waste of time and does what they don't want you to do and thats take your eyes off of the road. Using it is alright, but much instruction on how to get started navigating all the settings and options from manufacturer, pretty much a experiment and dive in deal.

    This unit leaves a lot to be desired. I hate that I have to hit ok every time the unit is powered on, I hit ok the first time. This thing is very slow to respond. If I am in app mode and I get a call, to get back to app mode, I have to hit ok on my iPhone to allow the app to open. The app was already open, can't you make it just bring it to the front instead of re-open? Also, since I have corporate email on my phone, I have to have locks on it. In order to keep appradio open, the phone has to be unlocked and the screen has to be on. Why can't I just use the iPod setting with the iPhone 5 so I could just play music. My factory Ford Sync radio could. I rarely even use the app mode because it is so slow and such a pain and no clock on the music app (this is the only clock in my truck). Bluetooth does not have the sound quality I am looking for so that is why I like to use the ugly cable that costs a ton of extra money by the time you buy the lightning to hdmi adapter and the other iPhone adapter. Why adapters, why can't I just plug into usb and have the unit decode. Sound quality is better than the stock unit and I wanted a screen so I can hook up a rear view camera which I have not done yet. I hope the iPod setting is enabled on future firmware for the iPhone 5 or I might have to leave Pioneer for another brand. I have been loyal to Pioneer since 1992, about 18 decks for different cars and family but this deck is just disappointing.

    Pros: Sound quality is pretty good. Looks nice.

    Cons: Everything above plus the EQ is not very good Lowest freq. is 125hz, which makes it hard to fine tune the sub.

    Great Product!

    Upon installation I discovered that in order to use the mirroring for my iPhone 5, I not only needed an adapter from Pioneer that I bought, but also an apple AV converter, and unless you want a really sloppy assemble you need another short USB to 8pin adapter. Then, unless you want the whole tangled mess a junk dangling out, you need another lightning male to female extension. You are left with a rag tag looking bundle of wires and plugs to deal with at adapter costs exceeding $120 at least. Syncing the bluetooth requires a major process that you have to plug your phone into the unit to perform, so if your wife or buddy wants to sync their iPhone 4 you need another hundred bucks in adapters and a half hour of doinkin around with it. Then the whole mirroring thing requires lame aftermarket apps from Pioneer that I still don't have working right after 2 hours of tweaking. It's SLOW, it's GLITCHY, and it SUCKS. The music stops abruptly for no reason while your driving and you have to start punching the screen to get off of pause. I have a much less expensive unit in my truck that works way better and glitches out way less. Front USB with a regular lightning plug into your phone for charging and direct control. It's simpler, works better, sounds great, and costs 75% less. Don't buy this junk. For me to return it I would lose a fortune in adapters and installation costs. I'm stuck in purgatory and you don't want to join me.

    Pros: Unimpressed.

    Cons: Too many expensive adapters, aftermarket apps are junky that you have to use, have to plug into to sync bluetooth, can't sync dissimilar devices without major adapters and time investment, glitchy, complicated, lame

    There is a lot of disinformation on the Internet about this product. Specifically that it doesn't work with iPhone 5 and/or IOS 7. Not so. It requires extensive cabling and you MUST read the owner's manual but after that everything works as claimed. I find myself using it mostly with Bluetooth and use Siri extensively to read and answer texts with hands on the wheel. I also use Siri to make calls (to people in my Contacts List). I play music off my Amazon Cloud Player (Bluetooth). I have the Waze app which works perfectly displaying on the head unit when all the cables are in place. But I use GPS assistance infrequently, so I only plug the phone into the Pioneer for that purpose -- because the cable bundle is such a barrier. This is not because of a "bad" installation. It is because the setup requires the Apple A/V cable which only has a 4" LIghtning cable lead. So you end up with this big clump of terminations 4" away from the iPhone. There isn't a good way to set that up so that it is either aesthetically pleasing or functionally pleasing. The A/V cable simply doesn't anticipate this kind of use and neither Apple nor Pioneer provide a solution that makes it functionally acceptable. That will likely be solved with the next model -- thus rendering this one obsolete -- I'm getting tired of that.... I don't think there is a better solution out there for what I want to do, but (as an engineer, myself) it's not quite there....

    Pros: Overall I'm happy with this solution (thanks to Siri) and it improves my driving experience (and safety) while using the Bluetooth features. When I use the GPS (Waze app) it works very well with the caveats mentioned.

    Cons: The point of connection needs a more completely engineered solution -- a Lightning cable extension, a dock, something.... If that problem were solved I'd be totally happy. I wish Bluetooth allowed transfer of album artwork. It would make a more interesting display. But that is neither a Pioneer nor an Apple problem -- it's the Bluetooth spec.

    Ok... I guess.

    I am kind of disappointed in the "app mode". I find myself just utilizing the Bluetooth to stream audio, as opposed to fumbling through all of the necessary steps to hook up my iPhone. Also, wish I had done a little more research into the available apps. Feels very limited, verses opening up a whole new world of functionality. I do like the unit overall, and I don't want my disappointment in the "app mode" to overshadow a great head unit. I love the display. It sounds great.

    Pros: Nice display. Good sound. Straight forward ease of use.

    Cons: Disappointed in app mode

    I had high hopes for this receiver. It is beautiful. I love the capacitive touch screen. I've installed several aftermarket stereos before -all with great sound. This one for some reason doesn't sound all that great. I hate the 5 band equalizer. It would be better off with separate bass and treble controls. It has an annoying warning screen that you have to agree to when you start your car. iPod sync lags. I was half tempted to put my factory stereo back in. Ordered something else and sending this one back.

    Pros: Aesthetically pleasing

    Cons: Too expensive for what you have to deal with.

    Great look but lacking features

    Pioneer did a wonderful job with the look of this unit, it's beautiful! Installation and set up was a breeze. The only complaints that I have that are really bugging me is I wish that when you did things in landscape mode on your iPhone it did the same on the big screen but it doesn't. The big killer for me is that I no longer use iTunes due to the fact that I use Rhapsody because it's a much better deal! I don't understand why Pioneer only thinks iTunes, Pandora, I heart radio and a couple of other music apps are only worthy to be a part do the Appradio 3!!! I can use Rhapsody with this unit BUT I don't get all the great looking art work or all the info like iTunes and the rest of them do. I can't show off the coolness of Rhapsody info to all my friends which also only use Rhapsody. I have emailed both Rhapsody & Pioneer about this issue that is bothering me and all they can say is they will send the idea to their development team. I have emailed them everyday for the past month and I won't stop until something is done about it. And you will hate that EVERYTIME you plug in your phone or watch a video, you will be warned repeatedly about the rules about Drivingand viewing video in motion! I wish you could turn off that option or when you say OK the first time, it will remember it forever. It gets old fast! I know an update could fix those issues easily! Other than those complaints...it's a great looking unit

    Really excellent unit with great sound and capabilities. A little hard to follow the instructions but a call to customer support helped out. So far we've enjoyed the unit and it looks cool in our dash. Taking a trip so we'll see how the navigation does.

    Pros: Attractive unit basic features easy to use.

    Cons: Directions for the use of apps can be difficult to follow.

    I was really looking forward to having an App Radio; just a little disappointed with the interaction required between the radio and the phone..becomes a little distracting while driving. I use this with an IPhone 5 which, as far as I can tell does not have the ability to mirror the phone on the display. The response time between app selection and display/response is extremely slow. Overall, for the price it's an OK alternative to the factory radio. Room for improvements in the future..

    Pros: Easy installation, great concept

    Cons: Slow App response, too much physical interaction required between phone and radio,

    Not impressed at all. Should be named AppRadio BETA

    Value - I feel I overpaid for the radio, for what it does and how it does it.

    Sound Quality: Good for me.

    Ease of use: First of all the amount of cables needed to sync my iphone is absurd. An HDMi cable that connects to a HDMi adapter, a USB cable that needs to be connected to a lightning cable that goes to the same adapter as the HDMi that then connects to the phone. The connection is really bad, if I move the phone, the radio screen will go blank and phone will loose sync. So you have to be very careful. The constant browsing of the phone and radio for sync permission is a pain, plus this radio has so many warning screens that it is insane. The main menu should have my apps there, not inside a second menu (the APPS menu). Not customizable. I thought that I would be able to browse my iphone videos through the radio, but I need to use the phone and then there are more warning screens.

    What drove me to buy this radio was the design of it. After using it I'm very disappointed. I would send it back and get something else if I could.

    Pros: Overall look and design of the radio is pretty great. Good video and sound quality. Good amount of apps that are compatible. Love Waze since I'm always on the road. Bluetooth is great. Great video quality for a camera.

    Cons: Not many customizations, cant add many stations to the radio. Slow when changing functions. You get a beta feel out of all the functionalities for the radio. iphone 5 sync is awfull. (And this is its main feature)

    This radio is misleading!

    The App radio 3 is a nice sleek looking unit, but thats about all it has going for it besides the low cost.

    Pros: Sleek Cost DVD player.

    Cons: majority of original smartphone apps are not compatible. You have to PAY to get compatible apps on your phone. only Pandora and Ipod Apps display on App radios screen, everything else is NOT compatible, so you have to pay for compatible apps. Bluetooth range sucks (occasionally while pumping gas while phone is in my pocket it loses connection) Only two preamp outputs, either Front & Rear or Front & Subwoofer Channel.

    Many have said this and I agree, AppRadio 3 is what AppRadio should have been from the beginning. The graphics are sharp, the sound is crisp, very versatile, and easy to learn & use.

    Pros: Glass panel display, responsive touch screen, Bluetooth AD2P audio interface

    Cons: Aux direct connect,

    I am very happy with this radio. The Bluetooth is fantastic, I am very pleased with the speed and ease of use. The sound quality is also very high, my subs still hit very hard when listening on BTA. I have no problem taking calls in my noisy diesel thanks to the available adjustments made in the BTA menu. I opted for the back camera and am also very pleased with that, I made mine switch over automatically and it does so quickly with good quality video, even in the dark of night. If you go with this radio, the accessories are a must to make use of most of the features this radio offers. I'm a little disappointed I can't play pandora over Bluetooth but that is the only shortcoming I have found with this radio so far. I've been pleased with the apps and video function of the receiver. This radio is confusing but once you have everything set up and you learn the very simple controls, you will be much happier with the radio. The install on this radio is a little more difficult than most but with some patience it shouldn't be too bad. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this radio to anyone with a smartphone. A smartphone is a must have with this radio so make sure to buy your appropriate connection kit, just bite the bullet and pay for it. You won't regret spending the extra money on it after you have the radio installed.

    Pros: Great video Bluetooth 3.0 High quality audio Back-up camera Great look Great value Many features High quality finish Large clock & date display

    Cons: Expensive accessories Needs accessories to be fully functional No pandora over Bluetooth Smartphone is a must-have

    Pioneer Appradio 3 SPH DA210 is a disappointment, primarily because of its ultra buggy, unrefined software. It touts mirrorLink technology. You would assume you would be able to use it to at least display Google or Apple turn by turn navigation. But NO. You have to buy NAV apps for more. And mirrorlink is only available in portrait mode on a horizontal screen of your headunit, ONLY while you are parked WITH parking brakes on. Even then you can NOT use your headunit screen to touch and control apps. You can just see it!. WHAT IS THE POINT OF THAT? If this does not drive you crazy, the barrage of safety warning which last for more than 5 seconds sometimes for almost each button you press will sound the death knell. Why the barrage of warnings? It distracts MORE than ensure safety! If you want to just play your music from your phone with good sound, you can get that at much lower price from Pioneeer itself.

    Pros: Big Screen? Thats probably all of it.

    Cons: 1. Mirror Link :Works only while you are parked in portrait mode. You cannot control your phone from the head unit screen. All you can do is watch DVD while parked. Whats the use??? 2. I understand safety is a huge concern but if you allow us to buy NAV apps but not use built in apps such as Apple Maps or Google maps, it must mean something else. And do NOT tell me its API issues. 3. Siri: Integration sucks. You can barely hear her! 4. Even basic music player stops when you skip son

    Great product, some minor issues

    I originally purchase the JVC KW-NSX1, then exchange for AppRadio3 later on. Compare to NSX1, AppRadio3 is actually a more refined product, it cost more, for a good reason. AppRadio use HDMI as A/V input, so that's pretty much compatible with majority high end android phone and iphone 5+. Now, the catch. More feature means more complication. AppRadio use Bluetooth for screen control communication with handset, which is a bit not as reliable as one would desire. My take on that is, they should had use USB for more robust screen communication. AppRadio mode works only if you have Bluetooth and HDMI connect properly. For any reason if your Bluetooth doesn't work during driving, you are risking your life to fix that issue on the fly. So what's different between mirrorlink and android AppMode? Mirrorlink only works on mirrorlink approved app, for most phone manufactory, that's their own proprietary drive app, like samsung's driveLink, and Sony's Carmode app. In AppMode, it does not limit you to only use AppRadio app. but if you don't use AppRadio app, you lose the capability to control your phone via head unit's touch screen, but you still can see the screen mirror of your phone which make other navigation solution possible like using google maps. Some minor issue: 1.Does not support Unicode, which means my Japanese/Chinese sound collection's info can not be displayed properly. 2.Does not support USB drive 3.Does not display album art

    Pros: Clean and dummy proof user interface Good numbers of supported devices, and unsupported device does not mean you can not use them at all, as long as they have HDMI output capability, they will work with the unit in some way. Sounds great since it pre-set with "powerful" in equalizer, it does give you a initial feel of "better sound". Tilted screen, so you can adjust the tilt angle, CD/DVD unit only feature. Includes a GPS receiver

    Cons: fixing phone connection is not easy task Cable/adapter cost is substantial (for android device, you need to buy HML adapter. for iPhone, you must buy Apple propitiatory HDMI adapter and Pioneer iphone cable to enable ipod feature ). Pioneer ship a HDMI cable supporter.a plastic piece that only works with special kind of HDMI cable, and only Pioneer sells those kind of HDMI cable I guess.. USB cable is short, you MUST buy a USB extension cable. iphone appradio connection "approval" is annoyin

    I love this app radio the only thing i don't like about it is the fact that you have to buy the cords that connect to your phone and I have an s3 so I had to buy the 5 to 11 pin adapter also which was only 10 buck and its more samsung's fault then pioneer

    Pros: easy to install, works very well, beautiful display

    Cons: you have to buy the cables to connect your phone :(

    It took me a while to get it installed. The wiring harness provided by Crutchfield did not work with my 2004 Lexus RX330 w/factory navigation as promised by Crutchfield. I had to purchase a beatsonic harness, added some more cost plus to the install. Radio works well, but It would be nice if you could just plug your phone back in and it would pick up where you left off the last time you were in the car.

    Pros: Radio looks very cool and for the most part is easy to use.

    Cons: Makes you jump through the same hoops every time you get in the car.

    I bought this unit with high expectations. I have an IPhone5 so I had to purchase the connectivity kit with it. This unit is very disappointing especially if you ever plan on using any type of navigation. If you're an IPhone 5 user only 2 nav apps will work while driving. All the others see the running app as video and tell you to engage your E-brake to use them. Operation is all based off your phone so if you get a phone call during navigation use, the navigation will shut down and bring the phone up. Rendering navigation useless. Also if you try to minimize the call window, audio to your vehicle shuts off but the person on the other end can still hear you through the microphone. I'm not only disappointed with the head unit but also with Crutchfield. I was led to believe it worked seamlessly with Iphone5 and that is simply not the case. Bottom line, don't buy if you plan on doing more than 1 thing at once. Crutchfield did pull through though with an advanced exchange and expedited shipping on the Kenwood Navigation unit I purchased.

    Pros: Beautiful head unit Looks great.

    Cons: Not able to take/make calls and navigate at the same time Cannot access other menus during a phone call with out interrupting the phone call Poor IPhone5 compatibility Constant trial and error required to figure out which apps work and which ones don't

    I did some research before purchasing this unit to be sure that it was compatible with my Motorola Razr Maxx. Well, someone was wrong. The connection drops frequently, rendering the so-called features unusable. I need to decide quickly if I want to return it or get a different phone. Neither is a good solution.

    Pros: WHEN it connects, sound and picture quality are really good.

    Cons: Can't use the monitor touch screen to control phone apps. Disconnects frequently. Really annoying message EVERY TIME it powers on.

    This a solid unit, they picked up the slack that they left out of the first AppRadios. I upgraded from the appradio 2, I love all the new features that come standard in all other units, I think that pioneer tried to do to much to fast, but finally delivered three years later. This is the perfect unit for a iPhone user, plain and simple. I also hook up my iPad to it as well. I love the phone integration and the overall look of the screen. A great stereo for anyone looking for large touch screen display!

    Pros: Bluetooth control, use of Siri right on the screen and all the cool apps

    Cons: The wiring with the hdmi cable, lightning cable and adaptor is a bit of a mess, they need one standard cable for this.

    Ok unit, not great.
