Big screen, big capabilities

Pioneer has equipped the AVH-X5500BHS DVD receiver with their largest screen plus an impressive set of features — features that improve not only the sound in your car, but your mobile experience too. Here are the highlights:

  • Advanced App Mode: You can launch and control compatible iPhone apps from the face of your receiver, putting a variety of music, navigation, social media, and other apps at your command. Pioneer's CD-201S cable is required (if you have an iPhone 5, you'll need a Pioneer cable kit ). You can learn more and see the latest compatible apps here.
  •  Built-in Bluetooth®: Enjoy hands-free calling with your compatible phone, plus the ability to wirelessly stream and control music from your phone or other Bluetooth devices.
  •  Built-in HD Radio™ tuner: You'll notice the impressive sonic advantages right away — FM broadcasts that are near-CD quality, with AM that's as good as what you're used to on FM. You can tune into multiple channels on the same frequency, for more entertainment choices. Plus, the iTunes® tagging feature lets you save song info, so you can purchase the tracks you like later.
  • Optional satellite radio: Add a SiriusXM tuner and subscription for nationwide access to programming you can't get anywhere else — coast-to-coast reception is a huge plus if you travel constantly. And you'll never have to worry about data charges or coverage.
  •  Advanced touchscreen controls: Touch Slide technology offers greater control of receiver 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.

Easy access to your media

You can connect your iPod or iPhone to this Pioneer's USB input and access your playlists with the receiver's controls, aided by tools like Alphabet Search and Link Search. You can also play music files from many Android™ phones when your Android is plugged into the front-panel USB port — see the "Details" tab for more info on device compatibility.

You can take charge of your Pandora® account from the touchscreen by connecting your iPhone to the receiver with Pioneer's CD-201S cable. Android users can enjoy the same functionality through a Bluetooth connection. And don't forget, you can also enjoy all your CDs, DVDs, discs full of MP3 or WMA music, and USB storage devices loaded with files.

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.

MIXTRAX and awesome video performance

When you're ready to get the party started, Pioneer's exclusive MIXTRAX feature creates a DJ-like experience with content from your iPod®, iPhone®, or Android, adding cool effects between songs as variable-color lighting pulses with the beat of your music. You can also change the receiver's appearance to match your dash by choosing from five display colors and 112 key panel illumination options.

Hi-res screen

The receiver's 7" WVGA screen sports higher-resolution imaging capabilities than most mobile A/V receivers, so it plays DVDs and other video content with bright, clear detail when you're parked. You can keep your passengers entertained during long road trips by sending video from the receiver to a rear-seat screen.  You'll be able to view video content from your iPod or iPhone with the addition of Pioneer's CD-IU201S cable. If you have an iPhone 5, you'll need a Pioneer cable kit  to view video and access apps, along with a free firmware update from Pioneer. Here's a nice safety feature – you can plug a rear-view camera into this receiver and it will show you what's behind you when you shift into reverse.

A firmware update is available from Pioneer that will provide enhanced iPhone 5 compatibility to enable AppRadio Mode. However, due to an unforeseen communication error with the Pandora Internet radio app, audio playback and display of metadata from Pandora are disrupted. If you use Pandora and don't intend to use AppRadio Mode at this time, please do not install this update. Pioneer is working on an update to allow for both Pandora and AppRadio Mode, to be released at a future date.

Tune the sound to your taste

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 4-volt preamp outputs make it easier to connect external amplifiers

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.

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.

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.

    Amateurish UI and missed opportunities

    This is last year's model, but the software interface and hardware is very similar to the 2014 model. I've been using it for 5 months, so I have a good sense of the UI problems.

    Overall, the hardware is good. The resistive touchscreen is responsive but some of the on-screen animations are choppy. But it's tolerable. The screen resolution is adequate for a HU and connectivity is very good. Bluetooth is solid and it syncs quickly. However, it's the software that needs refining.

    The UI is amateurish. The backgrounds, animations, and color choices are unpolished and gimmicky. The font size while using a flash drive is larger than the font used with Sirius. And the on-screen list of song title, artist, etc. is out of order compared to Sirius, it should be consistent. When muted, the mute icon overlaps the preset buttons. The X box, used to close windows, is offset from the main window, a graphical mistake. When using Sirius, there is a big empty space to the right where they could have the channel logo. The FM signal maxes out with 4 bars but the satellite signal maxes out with three bars (it's not a reception problem). The on-screen phone features, are on the right side, away from the driver. Voice control is clearly half-baked. When using a flash drive, the HU doesn't recognize playlists. If I knew that, I wouldn't have purchased the HU.

    I wish Pioneer would clean up the interface, until then I wouldn't recommend buying the AVH series.

    Pros: Solid hardware, great connectivity

    Cons: UI is unpolished, doesn't read playlists

    Got this for my new 2012 honda civic ex. Haven't had a newer car in a long time, so i wanted something nice. I'm in my 40's now and used to be a car audio nut! i love this head unit does everything i want and more. install was a breeze took all of about 45 min. with the supplied kits and diagram on how to take your dash apart. I remember when you had to just figure it out ! The extra power really "woke "up the factory speakers too ! Pioneer has always been my first choice in head units and i tried them all!

    Pros: It's a pioneer!

    Cons: You are looking at reviews ,so obviously you don't have one....get it now!

    I installed this radio in My 2004 Audi S4. I should have changed out my Factory head unit Years Ago. When I look at this radio installed in my car it looks like it came from the factory. That's a big plus for me.

    Pros: This radio is awesome! So many more features then my factory head unit. Fitment is great. This is a great addition to any vehicle while still maintaining the factory look without ant cutting or modifications of the dash board.

    Cons: The only I would have is the Low power fro the head Unit. But I guess Most people who change out the HU would also add an amplifier.

    Love It!

    I really like this unit. This is the second Pioneer HU I have gotten and I really like it. I got it because the interface looks the best (classiest) in my opinion (others look cheesy to me) and because of all its features. I only wish it had a knob for the volume instead of buttons, but it seems like everyone uses buttons now instead of a knob which is annoying.

    Pros: stylish easy to navigate looks good sounds great

    Cons: buttons instead of knob for volume

    This is my first Pioneer I have bought, while I intended to purchase an Alpine radio the Pioneer caught my attention with its overall good reviews and $100 off promo. I have to say for the money this radio is A+ very easy to use, upgradable with navigation, secondary screens or a rear view camera, makes it seem like there are endless options in order personalize its use. One thing I can't wait to try is the Dashcommand app for my ipod touch. Just purchase the Obdlink lx (or one of your choosing from their list) and connect it to your iphone or touch and you can setup any number of gauges or stats to view on your radio. Very cool!

    Pros: Many adjustable features tons of add-ons easy to connect to bluetooth and will remember multiple devices

    Cons: limited applications for use with iphone and Andriod unless you root your phon Can't purchase the Andriod cable kit anymore

    This was my first Pioneer head unit ever. I have had several Alpine and a Clarian unit prior. Since it was also my first DVD unit I have nothing to compare directly for its features. The units HD radio is nice but where I live is right on the boarder so it has a tendancy to switch back and forth out of HD, not the units fault but can be annoying. I wish I could have outputed video and sound to my rear headrests as an option since I have blue tooth head phones for them. I would have also like to then be able to multitask with another function such as radio or other functions seperately. I dont think any unit would do that but that would make it awesome and fully meet my needs. Touchscreen is pretty good but the radio preset buttons are too small. At times the screen locks up. Can't sync a bluetooth phone after startup. Small thing but would be nice. Seek function is clunky and over all reception is not as good as stock head unit. Clock is very easy to set. Overall for most people I think it is a solid performer, however in the back of my head I think I should have bought an Alpine unit.

    Pros: Touchscreen, Screen size, graphic eq,

    Cons: No bluetooth sync once past startup. Radio seek. HD radio reception, Lack of multitasking function.

    I purchased the avh-x5500bhs as a gift for my wife for Christmas. She has a 2007 Mustang GT500 Convertible and her factory radio, the Shaker 1000 system, the 6 disc in-dash CD had stopped working. The unit was delivered along with install kit, 2 harness plugs, antenna adapter, and the speaker pop eliminator. I also purchased the all the other items for the iphone5 online, as well as a back up camera. I Installed everything, uploaded my own custom screen logo through the usb, and was done. This unit looks so sexy good in the mustang. NOW. In order for the iphone 5 to work, you need to do 3 updates I believe. You will need 3 separate USB memory sticks to do this, I wish Pioneer would just include them, but you can get them for less than $5 each now at most stores. Other that that, my wife loves the unit, the personal color settings, the custom logo, the HD radio, and the back up camera since she sucks at driving and especially backing up. Watch product review videos and even look on YouTube at demos and reviews, very helpful.

    Pros: Cost. Function. Sound. Personalization. Iphone5 capable.

    Cons: All the items needed to buy to make it iphone5 compatable, lightning to USB, VGA adapter, the pioneer box, roughly $200 worth of stuff. ALSO. The updates needed for iphone5, why not include 3 USB memory sticks with the unit if you need them. In their own videos they have them with the pioneer logo on them. I own my own sales business, so I understand how much that extra $5 free item really means to a customer, saves them time from driving to buy it, saves them money, and saves thought.

    Seems like a good unit. I have had it for about 3 months now. Installed it myself in a couple of hours. I am a simple man and only really bought it for the hands free phone option since Maryland gives tickets for using your phone while driving now. I have a droid and seems to work good with it. Overall I love the unit but the only minor complaints are that it seems to constantly switch from analog to digital radio. I assume its the radio stations problem, not the radio. It can be put on analog only but I like the benefit of digital. I wish the equalizer could be set for analog and set differently for digital so that when it changed from one to another the equalizer could compensate some for the change in sound. The other complaint would be that the buttons on the screen are right on the edge of the unit and if you have big fingers it can be tricky hitting the right button. overall though, I am happy. Got a very good deal on it. looks good in the dash

    Pros: Value, looks, colors of face, sound quality, ease of installation

    Cons: Can't set equalizer separately for analog and digital. buttons on screen too close to edge of unit

    I have had this unit in for about 2 weeks and I am very pleased. I did not see it in person anywhere before buying so I didn't really know what to expect. I was a little worried about the connection to my Android phone but it worked great. The Pandora app works so that I don't have to mess with the phone at all. The bluetooth phone part works great too. I have the mike mounted on the ceiling by the lights and according to my wife it works great.

    Pros: Works with Android. Bluetooth phone.

    Cons: sometimes seems to skip on Bluetooth. Could be phone though.

    Nice Deck - Bluetooth chip Failed during First Week

    I think (hope?) this is a solid deck. After having it installed for just over a week, the bluetooth chip failed (got the Error-10 code). I had done nothing to incite this failure save use the deck normally. Just one day the bluetooth no longer worked. I'll be pretty frustrated if this happens with the replacement deck after it runs out of warranty (Thanks Crutchfield btw for such a speedy and easy replacement of the defective deck).

    As a whole however - I like it. I think the display is a little busy with icons and the like -- but it works fine. Sound quality is much much better than stock deck (and four replacement Pioneer speakers swapped out for OEM) but that's no surprise.

    Microphone quality is very good. USB cable with iphone 5s works well for sound only. One annoyance is that when I plug in my phone, it immediately begins playing music -- all the music -- shuffling one song at a time randomly. Pretty annoying. Bluetooth audio works well except you can't control pandora from the head unit while playing through bluetooth -- only through the phone.

    So far so good -- not terribly impressed and kinda keeping my fingers crossed that it stays functional for a good long time.

    Pros: Big Screen; nice quality. Looks cool. Versatile if you buy the right adapters

    Cons: Pioneer questionable engineering -- lots of people are experiencing the same failure (search online - this deck is apparently having many issues); Some weird quirky things that make it difficult to use.

    nice unit

    2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee instal with IPhone 5 IOS7

    nice unit with plenty of features. pretty simple to use. bluetooth works great, sound quality is very good and no complaints on the other end.

    HD Radio in metro Detroit area is great. plenty of stations to choose from and are nice and clear. best part for me is the CBS Radio Network station in HD because at night the AM alternative is non existent. Now I get to listen all of the Red Wings games and Sunday night football without a hint of static.

    Pandora and IPod control are a nice feature. The Iphone needs to be connected with a wire in order to control the music from the head unit. Bluetooth wireless streaming can also be used with this, but you have to control the music from the phone, I believe this is also true for Android users.
