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.

HD Radio

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.

    This unit is incredible! I installed this in my 2005 Hyundai Elantra Hatchback GT, and it works AMAZING! When I watched reviews of it on YouTube, I didn't really expect a whole lot more than what I saw, but when I first installed it and turned it on, I was quickly impressed because it greatly exceeded my expectations! Seeing this unit operate on YouTube is one thing, but actually having this in your car is 100,000 times better! On top of this unit, I am also VEERRRYYYY happy with this website! They automatically throw in all of the required install parts for your specific vehicle, for FREE. If I would have bought this unit from anywhere else, I would still be searching around for the correct parts to install this, and probably would have spent much more. So I am very glad I bought this from Crutchfield. I will definitely use this website in the future. If you are on the fence of whether you should buy this or not, DO IT. It is so worth it! It is an amazing unit!

    Pros: Vivid screen, multiple animated themes, color changing LED buttons, free install parts from crutchfield, easy installation, INSANELY fast shipping, I can go on forever about the pros of this unit and crutchfield's service.....AMESOME PURCHASE!

    Cons: Nothing

    Sweet unit!

    Awesome unit for the price! Everything worked first time out of the box. Bluetooth automatically pauses then resumes playback when entering the vehicle! Didn't even realize it has a port for backup camera! Guess what I'm getting next! Just buy it!

    Pros: sound alot better then stock mach 460 stereo in my mustang,easy to use

    Cons: the buttons are little but once I get use to using it will be fine.

    Had to downgrade to this from a Kenwood Excelon Navi unit. Didn't want to, but had to. Anyway, this my first Pioneer head unit and so far, I really like it. No regrets about the purchase at all.

    Great Headunit!

    I traded in my old 2012 Wrangler for a new 2015 Wrangler and opted for the base stereo as I knew up front that I would be replacing the stereo in it. I went for a Sony in my 2012....and it was ok. But after installing this new Pioneer unit all I can say is...WOW! Sounds great, was easy to adjust and use without reading the instructions, and I am just super impressed with what I got for the money spent! I haven't swapped out my speakers yet, but did hook up a 10" Rockford Fosgate sub in a sealed enclosure...and the sub does make the system that much better, but even when I turned the sub completely off I was blown away with what this stereo has done to the stock speakers. Clarity is one thing this Pioneer has!

    Pros: Very user friendly! Intuitive controls! Really makes my car sound bigger than it is!

    Cons: Other than a tough install with the steering wheel controls module which has nothing to do with the head unit, this seems to be a great radio!

    No Longer Happy

    I have the predecessor, the 3500, to this model. Initially I liked it as much as the other posters on here but I am quite unhappy now. First, the unit will lose power for a split second randomly and it loses everything, all the Sirius and radio station presets, time, etc. and worst of all, all the sound settings. It takes about 20 minutes to dial in the sound on this thing and I have cussed at it numerous times and will not buy another Pioneer because of this issue (I'm currently looking for its replacement). The default sound settings appear geared to a teenager overpowering the bass and nothing else. When using the iPod, you choose a song from the iPod as usual and then if you want another artist, it takes five commands to get back to the artist selection, which is ridiculous! The built in microphone system is so bad that it's not usable-nobody can understand you. The Loudness function has three settings, low to high and they're all terrible, making very dramatic changes to the sound and not a true loudness function. On the plus side, once the EQ is set and the subwoofer dialed in, it sounds great, but when it loses power it all goes away and I have to start over. I've triple checked every connection and they are solid. This doesn't happen to anything else in the car. If I were you I would search for a different unit before considering this model, nearly identical to the 3500

    Pros: Sounds great when it's dialed in. Has lots of features, especially over the factory head unit. Marries well to JL Audio amp and speakers-which I Highly recommend! Great Bluetooth connectivity to my iPhone that doesn't lose it's settings; imagine that?!

    Cons: No memory of your settings (it's called EPROM, Pioneer!). Terrible loudness features. Loses power intermittently. Horrible iPod GUI. Appears to be made for kids with no discerning ear to good sound.

    Great Reciever

    An excellent radio.

    Pros: Will display album art from an attached USB drive. Sound quality is excellent.

    Cons: Has problems with indexing large drives, takes several minutes every time you turn on the radio.

    I purchased this unit for my 2008 Dodge Ram 1500. Using a double DIN radio in this truck required some custom modification to the dash bezel, but it was well worth it. Wiring the unit with the included Metra harness was easy. Just match the colored wires, solder and heat shrink. I am currently using the head unit with the factory speakers, but will be adding an amp and infinity speakers shortly.The audio quality is surprisingly good. Blows the factory radio out of the water. Be aware that the manual recommends against driving 2 ohm speakers directly. As for the head unit itself, I'm totally pleased with it. The initial set-up was very easy and I was able to accomplish most of it without having to refer to the users manual. This is my first experience with HD radio and I'm pretty impressed. My other main source of music is a USB drive that I've loaded with about 800 songs. The head unit builds a database and allows easy sorting and playback of all the songs on the drive. I typically just put it on shuffle and let it play. I plan on adding a generic back-up camera in the future. In all, this is a full featured unit with excellent sound at a price that can't be beat. The controls are intuitive and easy to figure out. Crutchfield, of course, was outstanding. Great purchase.

    Pros: Very good quality audio HD radio Easy to understand controls accepts optional Sirius tuner & back-up camera

    Cons: none so far

    We have loved our new stereo from the beginning. We did have problems with the first amp interface and called customer service and they sent a replacement right away. After we received the new one and installed everything the head unit is amazing. We absolutely loved the price and the overall experience of dealing with Crutchfield. We will definitely be buying from them for any of our vehicle needs.

    Pros: User friendly and pretty strait forward on what everything does.

    Cons: The add-ons are expensive like the mirror link and nav gear.
