This feature creates a DJ-like experience with content from your iPod®, iPhone, or Android, adding special effects between songs and variable-color lighting that pulses with the beat of your music.

Sparkling video

The receiver's 6.1" LCD screen plays DVDs and other video content in bright, clear detail when you're parked. You can keep your passengers entertained by sending video from the receiver to a rear-seat screen — that sure makes those long road trips go faster. You'll be able to view video content from your iPod or IPhone with the addition of optional cables (check the "Details" tab for full information).

Crisp and powerful sound

The receiver's powerful built-in amplifier delivers the volume you're looking for, while the 8-band equalizer offers plenty of ways to tweak the sound to your liking. Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever perks up the flat sound of compressed music by restoring high-frequency information. For those looking to build a system, 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, not included).

    This was my first time ever ordering from Crutchfield and it was great! Great deal on this double din for my truck and you get all the harnesses and adapters. They shipped it out immediately after I ordered it and arrived earlier then expected! Installation instructions were straight forward and product was simple to install. Definitely ordering from Crutchfield again in the future!

    Superior to OEM

    Radio works as advertised. I did a lot research and the AVH-2600BT is the best value. Far superior to the Toyota stock radio in both sound quality and reception (after 1 day of testing :). Bluetooth operation through iPhone 6 is great, voice call through Siri was such a great hands-free benefit, microphone seems to work well, and clarity through the speakers is good.

    Pros: Looks fantastic, like that you can change background and button colors. Has a lot of features for future expansion. Did I say it sounds great?

    Cons: Wish there was a way to toggle through all presets through FM1-FM3 instead of having to touch the screen.

    Good product, some PITAs

    Good product for the price.

    Pros: Nice screen, good sound, flawless I-device integration, via wire and Bluetooth.

    Cons: Wasn't thrilled that I had to take apart the center console and connect a wire to the positive side of the parking brake switch to make the video work. No directions came for this part, the connection and disassembly are up to you. (09 Nissan Frontier)

    Great purchase, I analyzed many online markets and with the added value of the install components the price was by far less than others.

    The unit itself was just as described and all functions work great. Video is exceptionally clear on DVDs as well as back up camera. Two things that kept me from giving 5 stars is the annoying beeping sound when using a button as well as the connection of the bluetooth. I wish it wouldnt give you a "failed to connect" error that requires confirmation when I have my bluetooth on my phone turned off.

    Pros: Very sleek and many features for the $$

    Cons: Annoying beep, however I remember years ago when I was in High School I loved the head units that beeped when buttons were pressed. Just personal preference, wish it could be turned off and on.

    I bought this head unit as a replacement for the second car and I have to say that I love everything about it. The ease of use and iPod intergration are great and the sound quality is amazing for a head unit in this price range. I have a newer Alpine digital media receiver in my primary vehicle and am now disappointed that I paid so much for it and didn't give this Pioneer a chance first.

    Pros: Ease of use. Sound quality Features Price

    Cons: None

    Overall amazing product for the price. Accessories kit provided by Crutchfield was of good quality and perfect fit for my SUV 2005 Honda Pilot. Significant upgrade over factory unit. Seamless integration with phone, audio quality amazing with number of options to adjust sound to factory speakers. Now need to upgrade speakers to go with the unit.

    Cons: None noted so far.

    Radio does everything I wanted. It doesn't have the new "car play" for Apple, but still connects with iPhones with some capability. I'm good with just having Siri available to make calls for me, take texts, and give directions, though some Apps do not work. It's easy to switch between inputs, but using the iPod isn't as easy as I hoped. Finding your playlist, then getting it to quickly shuffle your songs takes a bit of time. Then if you switch to radio and back to iPod, you have to start all over. Maybe I'll get more efficient with time.

    Pros: Easy to connect with Siri Easy to switch between inputs

    Cons: ipod a little cumbersome to use

    Excellent product especially for the price. As always Pioneer puts out a good product. Install was flawless given the full kit provided by Crutchfield. These guys know they're stuff and are always available. Installed in a 2012 Ram 1500 and with the help of an online forum was able to make the necessary dash modifications to both install the head unit and Bluetooth mic. The inclusion of the mic as well as a USB cable is an added bonus. Unit has a nice crisp display and the EQ settings improve any stock system. Solid build and the buttons don't feel cheap. My only gripes are that it takes a few seconds for the Bluetooth to connect and be ready to play. Not a huge deal at all, but something to note. Also, you can't search alphabetical in the address book. In other words, it pulls up your entire address book, but with today's phones where several apps (i.e FB) sync contacts, scrolling through thousands of contacts is impossible. I love the ability to change the background; I put a RAM logo and the thing looks stock.

    Pros: Easy install, mic and USB cable included, customization, sound quality

    Cons: None significant

    I searched for days trying to decide which receiver to go with, I didn't want to spend a lot of money but also didn't want to cheap out. I finally ended up with this one and I am very pleased with my purchase. This unit does everything I wanted it to do and more. Sound quality is great, screen quality is great, touch screen responsiveness is great, Bluetooth works great, it works perfectly with my iphone 6, and it displays artist, song, artwork, and other info almost seamlessly. The only con that I have come across so far is that there aren't many file types that can be used for video playback, but this isn't much of a con for me because I didn't buy this unit to watch video.

    Pros: album artwork display is awesome iphone compatibility (Bluetooth, charging, and music playback) touch screen is responsive and not laggy audio quality is great

    Cons: limited file types to use for video playback using usb
