Enjoy your music

Pioneer AVH-X3600BHS

The AVH-X3600BHS features an HD Radio tuner and supports an optional satellite radio tuner.

The AVH-X3600BHS will play your music, no matter what medium you prefer. You can connect your iPod or iPhone to the rear USB input and use the receiver's controls to access your playlists, while tools like Alphabet Search and Link Search get you to the song you want quickly. Android users aren't left out in the cold. If your Android phone supports the media transfer protocol (MTP), you'll be able to browse and play back the music that's stored on your phone, no extra app required.

If you're a fan of streaming Internet radio, connect your iPhone to the receiver with an optional cable and take charge of your Pandora® account from the touchscreen, complete with thumbs-up and thumbs-down controls. And don't forget, you can also enjoy all your CDs, DVDs, discs full of MP3 or WMA music, or USB storage devices loaded with files.

Tune the sound

This Pioneer sports an 8-band equalizer for making your music sound perfect in your car, and you'll find an auto-equalization feature to tune your system (microphone required). Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever perks up the flat sound of compressed music by restoring high-frequency information.  If you're looking to build a killer system, three pairs of preamp outputs make it easier to connect external amplifiers

Customizable display and excellent video performance

The 6.1" LCD screen on this Pioneer can be customized with variable color choices and backgrounds. 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.
The AVH-X3600BHS plays DVDs in bright, clear detail when you're parked, and when you're on the road, you can entertain your passengers by sending a movie from the receiver to a rear-seat screen — they'll thank you during those long trips (check the "Details" tab for full information on cables required for video playback from iPhones). And of course you can plug in a rear-view camera to play it safe in crowded parking lots.

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

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

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.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    I was able to install the Pioneer double-DIN unit in my '03 Jeep Liberty even though the factory radio is only a single-DIN thanks to a new center console surround from Metra. The wire harness from Crutchfield was perfect as usual, the unit installed in only a few minutes once I did a few modifications to the sub-dash. The head unit looks great, is fairly intuitive, it's easy to program SiriusXM stations, HD radio stations and connect my iPhone 5S via bluetooth. I don't have a backup camera yet so can't comment on that. I'm very pleased with the sound from the system even with inexpensive aftermarket JVC speakers in front and factory tweeters in the dash and rear doors. I wanted a double-DIN head unit primarily for the large screen to control my iPhone and for the use of mapping/navigation apps via AppRadio. I bought the Pioneer CD-IV203 cable kit along with the Apple VGA-to-lightning adapter so I could have the connectivity I needed (the cable kit and Apple adapter are expensive but I felt they are worth it.) I spent a weekend trying to get AppRadio to connect with my iPhone with no success - I could control Pandora with a Pioneer app, listen to music from iTunes and Amazon Music via bluetooth. Crutchfield Tech Support suggested I call Pioneer to figure out the AppRadio problems - it was a simple fix. I have to connect the Lightning cable AFTER starting the engine so the head unit can "ping" my parking brake. An anomaly of my Jeep - now AppRadio is perfect. Very pleased.

    Pros: Hands free calling, streaming music via Pandora, iTunes and Amazon Music, sound quality and EQ section. Pleasantly surprised by HD Radio - wasn't expecting much but got more than I expected. Very easy to connect SiriusXM receiver and program favorites. Happy with AppRadio connectivity - Crutchfield Tech Support was very empathetic with my inability to get AppRadio working and ultimately suggested I call Pioneer directly. Was an easy fix to get AppRadio working - just a weird Jeep quirk.

    Cons: There are several functions that need to be set up in general settings and sub-menus to get everything up and running - if you're intimidated by menus and ensuring all setup items are correct this unit may be a bit much. Some glare issues with the touchscreen on very sunny days. The AppRadio takes a bit of time to be launched on my iPhone 5S - just need to be patient till it pops up on the phone after 10 to 15 seconds.

    The second receiver does everything it is supposed to do. The first one I received had a defect (it would not load discs), and the prompt replacement worked fine.

    Pros: A main reason for dealing with Crutchfield is the high level of knowledge and helpfulness of your staff. This was shown again in this purchase both in getting the replacement and in solving an interesting installation issue I encountered in my rather unusual car. (the "Coolness Factot" is rated in the middle of the range because I don't give a hoot about "coolness," whatever that is.

    Cons: Electronic user manuals are notorious for being poorly written, but this one is especially weak.

    The receiver looks good installed and works as advertised. The touch screen flows well and is user friendly. Sound quality is far above stock radios. Some people complain about bass, but the equalizer will supply ample bass sans a subwoofer. The install kit needs to be re-written with more model specific instructions. I installed the receiver in a Chevy Avalanche. The instructions said a metal support bracket had to be cut. After 2 hours with a hacksaw, the receiver still wouldn't fit. I determined that the support bracket did not have to be cut, but I had to grind down the plastic molding in front of the bracket before the unit would fit deep enough. The instructions are vague and can be confusing because it covers too many models. If you cut the wrong tabs on the trim price, you ruin it. Other than that, I'm pleased with the unit and happy to have dealt with Crutchfield.

    Pros: The installed unit blends well with the dash. The touch screen looks and performs great. Nice unit for the price.

    Cons: Install instructions need to be more specific to the make and model.

    Great Product for the Price!

    I've had the unit in my 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for about two days now, and I couldn't be happier. Installation was a breeze due to Crutchfield sending everything needed. I was disappointed that the Metra mounting brackets were made out of very flimsy ABS plastic, and with the fact that I have to remove a metal brace that would hold the stock stereo, I kind of wish they would make a aftermarket brace that would replace the stock one so that the mounting brackets weren't supporting just the front of the units weight. I also had to cut a portion of my dash to fit this unit in, but it is bigger than the stock double DIN stereo. It was the best choice for me trying to retain the stock stereo look without spending over a thousand dollars on a head unit. The sound quality of the unit is great, and with my two dash speakers changed out, it sounds even better. Now I just need to switch out the roll bar speakers and hear this unit really do its thing. I also purchased the PAC steering wheel controls, I was hesitant at first because I really didn't think it was worth spending more money, but after installing it, I'm glad I got it. The PAC unit was super easy to install, and comes with a wire guide to make it that much easier. I would say if you have a Jeep Wrangler and are looking for a decent unit to keep that stock look but loose the garbage stock stereo, this is the best bang for the buck. But I wouldn't take my word for it... Reading Rainbow reference. Good times

    Pros: Great price, great looking unit, pretty easy to use, sounds amazing, very expandable in terms of add-ons, Bluetooth mic sounds great, Crutchfield is the best!

    Cons: The plastic mounting brackets are very flimsy, and should have come with a aftermarket Jeep Wrangler support bracket for the rear of the unit.

    Great product and customer service

    This is a great deck. A huge improvement over the stock head unit. The only gripe i have is during the installation, the screws that came with the deck for mounting to the dash kit do not fit in this unit. Otherwise, the sound, look, and function of this unit are great.

    Pros: Improvement of sound quality, Looks really nice over the factory deck. easy to hook up with the wiring harness.

    Cons: the screws included with the deck do not fit the unit. (for the mounting in the dash kit.

    I'm still getting used to this head unit, but so far I really like it.

    Pros: Great price on this unit and looks very nice. It has more features than I have even had time to play around with, but so far it's great.

    Cons: The only negative thing I can say is that I wish it was easier to see the display during the day when the sunlight is coming into the vehicle.

    Great stereo for the money, iPod connectivity is quick, better than my Alpine unit. Great sound quality. Only con would be the parking brake procedure to get DVDs to play, you have to apply the emergency brake, release, and apply it again to get DVDs to play. Other than that it's great

    Pros: Nice looks, everything works flawless.

    Cons: Parking brake procedure.

    I am impressed with this unit, has all the features I was looking for and the installation was easy. I am still using stock speakers but a huge improvement over the stock Ford radio and and a no-name aftermarket unit. I picked it up when it went on sale and felt like I got a great deal on a great stereo.

    Pros: Works great, looks great, value for the features and price.

    Cons: None

    I have installed this in my '08 Expedition EL. Looks like it came from the factory. Bluetooth works great for both audio and calls. HD Radio is very nice to have. Pandora work so-so with my Galaxy S4 - it seems to lock up on the phone, but I don't think it's an issue solely with this head unit. Extremely happy to have backup camera installed, especially nice to be able to turn it on so I can see behind while not in reverse. Plan to get Satellite Radio module as well, looks to be a very easy add-on. Only real complaint is the controls are a bit tough to find while driving. On-screen controls of course have no feedback, but they are very small and a bit difficult to press while driving. Surprisingly, even the hard buttons on the left do not have any "texture" to them so you cannot ID them without looking. Plan to get Satellite Radio module in the near future. Not using USB or Mirrorlink/AppRadio features, so no comment on those.

    Pros: Great sound, very customizable UI, Bluetooth handsfree, bluetooth audio, HD Radio, backup camera all work great.

    Cons: Small on-screen controls and lack of texture to hard buttons.
