Step up to multimedia in your car

You don't need to play movies in your car to enjoy having a DVD receiver in your dash (though it IS a pretty cool feature). Pioneer's DVD receivers set the bar for multi-faceted functionality, and the AVH-X1500DVD leads off their feature-rich lineup. This versatile receiver sports a 6.1" 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.
Thanks to WVGA technology, Pioneer's DVD receivers boast twice the resolution of most multimedia receivers, meaning you'll have a clearer, sharper picture when you're watching videos or taking charge from the touchscreen. And you'll also find plenty of ways to play back your music, compatibility with many popular mobile apps, and a display that'll knock your socks off.

Advanced App Mode

Pioneer integrates smartphones into your driving experience with Advanced App Mode, which allows you to launch and control compatible iPhone apps from the face of your receiver, putting a variety of music, navigation, and social media apps at your command. You'll appreciate the safety and convenience when you're behind the wheel of your car, and more and more compatible apps are coming your way  — you'll need Pioneer's CD-IU201S cable and you can see the latest compatible apps here.

Video playback and a rocking-cool touchscreen display

The 6.1" LCD screen on this Pioneer 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-IU201S cable, you'll be able to view video content from your iPod® or IPhone® too (video playback requires CD-IV202AV cable kit and other adapters with iPhone 5). And of course you can plug in a rear-view camera to play it safe in crowded parking lots.
You'll also find some cool touchscreen features — Pioneer's Touch Slide technology gives you real fingertip control over many functions. Want a new EQ curve? Just draw it on the screen with your finger and you've got it. And you can browse video files through thumbnail images — just touch them to check out a sneak preview.

MIXTRAX will liven up your time on the road. This feature creates a DJ-like experience with content from your iPod, iPhone, or Android™, with special effects between songs and variable-color lighting that pulses with the beat of your music. You can even tailor the receiver's appearance to your taste by choosing from five display colors and 112 key panel illumination options.

AppRadioLIVE makes it easy

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.

Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD

Touchscreen controls make it easy to select sources.

Media at your command

You can play just about anything on this Pioneer, including your CDs, discs full of MP3 or WMA music, or USB storage devices loaded with files. When you connect your iPod to the 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.

You can also play music files from many Android™ phones when your Android is plugged into the rear USB port — see the "Details" tab for more info on device compatibility. If you're a fan of streaming Internet radio, connect your iPhone to the receiver with Pioneer's CD-IU201S cable and take charge of your Pandora® account from the touchscreen, complete with thumbs-up and thumbs-down controls.

Great 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).

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Pioneer stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Pioneer, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

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.

    Love the player. Great with pandora. A little difficult to get DvD to bypass the stupid parking brake saftey switch. But all in all a very good payer with great EQ adjustments and sub output. Dont like the fact that the usb input comes out the back so you have to run a cable behind the dash instead of being able to just plug in the front. I have this and the jenson flip out dvd in my wifes car. the screen quality and resolution is awesome with this player 100% better quality than the Jenson.

    Pros: great picture, wide range of eq control,great sound

    Cons: usb port in the back(this is just a personal thing),hard to bypass brake switch

    Good Value

    I am not audiophile, but this stereo was relatively cheap and sounds great. Had connections for subwoofer and review camera. I have yet to figure out how to adjust brightness. Hard to read when in sun

    Pros: Great sound for the money

    Cons: Hard to see display in sunlight (but I haven't yet figured out how to adjust).

    Pros: Screen. Coolness.

    Cons: Android compatibility.

    its not a bad item for the money. the install was pretty straight forward. I've been using the Pioneer brand for over 14 years and still lasts the test of time. Still disappointed that this unit will not work with a Android Fone. ive tried everything that I can think of and as much research as I could as well.. If your looking to use the Bluetooth function or a Android, move onto another system. other than that good sound and functionality for the money.

    Pros: the sound quality is great and ease of installation. pretty much straight and to the point. added a Sub to this and was easy install. System configuration not too complicated.

    Cons: no Bluetooth... ONLY for IPHONES, not android ( unless you have an old Android that wasn't updated from Jellybean)

    This is a great radio, sound is good, looks is good. It is easy to learn to use. Will work with Android using the Aux. cable coming from the back and running into glove box, and plug into the headphone jack. Installed in a 2010 Dodge 1500 with a little trimming of the dash.

    Pros: Great price and quality

    Cons: None

    This was my very first time dipping my feet into the world of car audio modding. I have a 2010 Honda Fit and the head unit on it was itching to be replaced(non navi). As a full-time student on a budget, I needed something that was affordable yet suitable enough to keep while adding on to(sub/amp/speakers). Saw great reviews and ratings and I loved the way it looked compared to others in its price range so I decided to get one in my hands. Crutchfield is amazing with sending everything you need for the installation. I was a little iffy doing wiring because it was only my second time doing wiring but everything worked the first time! Installation was a breeze with everything that Crutchfield provided. As for the sound quality, it's a world of a difference compared to stock, with the 8-band EQ and all the other features available in this inexpensive little unit. Only reason why I have 4 stars on build quality is because I'm so accustomed to my iPhones touchscreen that I felt the Pioneer could have been better but it's still great nevertheless! It's the only thing I could have any negative thoughts about but I can't complain with what I paid for! This head unit is definitely worth a try. :)

    Pros: Easy to install, jam-packed with great features, works great with iPhone 5S

    Cons: Minor inconvienience with the USB port in the back.

    I had a double din factory stereo that had very few options. This Pioneer was a nice upgrade over that. The iPod / iPhone integration, DVD player, rear camera and pre outs give me a lot of options to work with. I am no audiophile, but am pleased with the product based on the price-point. If you were looking for a nice upgrade from your plain factory stereo this is a nice upgrade. Spend some time in the driveway figuring out what does what related to iPod integration, because it does take a little time to work out the nuances to operation.

    Pros: Price. Solid construction. Features available for the price-point. Display, background and theme color changes to match stock interior colors.

    Cons: None really.for the price you really can't be that picky, and if you are then go spend $500 on something else.

    Great stereo!

    This stereo is super nice for the price! Touch screen is fun, the sound quality is better than my stock stereo and I like the tons of upgrade hookups in the back. Wiring was fairly simple. Plays my Flash drives and phone. Only thing missing is bluetooth tech which can be added on later.

    Pros: Great upgrade from 2006 stock cd player. Plays DVDs and Pandora. DJ Mixtrax feature is fun. Changing color buttons rocks, menu functionality is great!

    Cons: No blue tooth. Had to buy a usb-1/4" adapter for flash drive and phone integration for $60. I know how to wire but if you don't then expect to get a pro to install for you. The universal parts they give you to install are kind of a pain with tabs you have to cut off with cutters

    Pros: Ease of use, great sound quality over factory head unit and it has style.

    Cons: Haven't found any yet...

    Awesome buy, being my first screen reciever. Many color options on the display, you can alter it on a color scale, which allows any color you could imagine honestly. Sound quality was day and night different after the install. (I drive a 2000 Toyota 4runner) I find myself using the remote it comes with because its easier than hitting the voulme button on the actual product. Heck, for the price, its a steal. Looks great, sounds great, what more do you want? Only thing I will say I dont care for; is the fact that you must have the vehicles parking brake applied for the AUX option to work correctly, Im not sure why honestly, and I hate seeing the warning that stays on the screen so I normally just turn the display off. My buddy saw mine, and installed one in his Toyota Supra also.

    Pros: Upgrades the look of your interior. Sounds amazing. Plenty of options.

    Cons: Must be in park for the DVD to play or the AUX to show cover art.

    Pretty good unit for the price. Very easy to use. Sound quality has improved drastically over my stock headunit. Still have stock speakers.

    Pros: Sound quality, ease of use, looks

    Cons: Speed of unit- sometimes takes a second to load from changing song from spotify on my iphone. Other con would be that you need an extra $40 cord to have full access of all the available apps on the device and your phone.
