    I'm hard to impress, but this unit does everything I need. I mostly read off of my usb. The search function is great and easy to use. The back up camera is great and the picture is nice. The EQ has presets or 2 custom ones you can save. I don't use navigation or XM radio, but it's nice if I ever wanted to add them I could. I replaced my shaker 500 in my mustang and it sounds great and just as loud. No loss of power. The sub control work great with my amp and two 12 inch woofers in the trunk.

    Pros: lots!

    Cons: none yet

    Bought this receiver to replace the original head unit which is going on 16 years old. With Crutchfield technical support, wiring diagram and wiring harness, the installation was a snap for this novice. Only called Tech Support a couple of times for very brief questions needing primarily confirmation that I was doing the right thing. The Tech Support staff were all friendly and super supportive. Mounted the mic for BT calls on the steering wheel column and also installed a Sirius XM tuner behind the head unit and everything looks and sounds great. Still learning some of the features but everything seems to be working beautifully. Love the built in controls for Pandora as well as Ipod through the USB. Only thing I ordered but did not need was the Bojo trim panel pry tools. I found a plastic putty knife that worked perfectly on removed the trim panels. Already had the dash cracked open and ready when the receiver arrived. With the unit being discounted by $100 from list price, it was a perfect time to upgrade. Crutchfield is great - always my first stop for electronics.

    Pros: Fantastic sound, bright 7" screen, picture options for normal, zoom & wide, tons of features including backup camera capable.

    Cons: Controls on the remote are not as extensive as they might be. Controls on and below screen are a little challenging with big fingers (neither a monster problem but could be improved slightly on future designs).

    Pretty good HU, everything seems to work fine. Only issue I had (maybe it was my car?) I couldn't seem to figure out why I kept getting static out of my speakers and my subs had a slight thump to them even when the volume was at 0. Ended up getting a ground loop isolator (only around $20) and everything is perfect now!

    Pros: Looks good Big screen Sounds great Screen tilts for preference

    Cons: None so far

    Great head unit. Bought this for my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, and let me tell you, Huge improvement over the stock unit. My stock speakers and sub sound 2x better than before. The fit and finish look oem as well. A must for any Mopar fan with a stock unit. Pioneer hit a home run with this head unit.

    Pros: Bluetooth auto connect Sound Quality Easy to operate Color choices for home row buttons

    This player is amazing! I bought this unit to replace a stock unit. Very simple to install when paired with Crutchfield install kit and wiring harness. Easy to use. I love how I can control my iPod gen 2 by simply plugging it into the provided usb extension from the touch screen. The Bluetooth works beautifully for calling and music from my android phone! I love the pandora controls using Bluetooth! The sound quality is amazing ! The 8 band eq is great and easy to use! I thought I was going to have to replace all my factory speakers but that is not the case! Stock sounds great......for now! I am sure that I will replace them all thru Crutchfield!

    Pros: Sounds great! Easy install! Lots of features!

    Cons: The microphone for the talk back is not that good for the other people on the other line hearing me clear.

    I bought this to replace the stock deck in my gmc. This is a great receiver. Lots of options. The sound is amazing with the Bose system that is stock in the truck. Powerful sound.

    Pros: Clear, powerful, lots of options from sound to display.

    Cons: There is an issue with the iPhone 6 and the app radio part. Not compatible with iOS 8. It still works playing music off the iPhone even through iTunes Radio. just not the apps.

    I purchased this HU as a replacement for my factory radio in my 05 MB C320 sedan with a Hardon Kardon sound system. After a couple of months of looking off and on I decided on this Pioneer unit. After talking with the sales person I was assured that I was receiving everything I needed for the install. I painstakingly removed my factory unit and hooked up the new one only to find that I have no sound. After talking with tech support I was told I needed to run new wires from the amp in the trunk up to the new HU. It goes without saying I was very upset because I specifically asked if there was anything else I needed. I could understand if my car was new, but it's 10 years old. I sent the unit back for a refund. Very disappointed.

    I needed to replace the stock head unit in my truck and the Pioneer won out. Its display is easy to use and is not a distraction while driving; the 8-band graphic EQ works well and provides more than adequate options for shaping the sound to please just about anyone; the built-in HD radio tuner works very well and actually does sound better than standard analog FM, and the Bluetooth connection to a smart phone is a real treat and sounds great. Overall this is a really great replacement for a stock head unit.

    Pros: Easy-to-use and install; sounds great; looks great; HD radio; lots of terrific features

    Cons: None come to mind

    I purchased this item as an open box and was delighted to see that it was in all actuality new. I'm impressed with the quality of the product, the display is clear, colorful and easy to use. Sound quality is great and takes full advantage of my JBL speakers-compared to the factor stereo that my vehicle came with.

    Pros: Most stereos manufacturers make it complicated to set their products, but not pioneer....ease of operation, touch screen display is bright colorful, functionality and setup is right on target as you work Ur way thru setup and operation. Plus this system makes my JBL Speakers Sound So Sweet

    Cons: I wish there was an external knob to be able to turn the volume up or down...even though the screen is six inches which is still rather large but compared to my old system which had a 7 inch screen, the 6 inch screen still takes little getting used to...

    I have had this unit about 10 days now, and I am very happy so far. It arrived in perfect conditioned, packed very well, even though I despise packing peanuts. The sound quality is far and above the stock unit, on the same stock speakers. After spending about 45 minutes deciphering the instructions and the many different harnesses I needed to wire together to get this unit to work with my steering wheel controls, I was ready to install it. Installation into the dash was quick and easy.

    I have the VSE Bazooka box subwoofer that was designed for the 05-10 Scion TC, and the unit works flawlessly without any needed modifications. The steering wheel controls work good, except for when trying to change radio station favorites. Instead of changing to the next favorite, it goes to the next frequency, no big deal though.

    Bluetooth works great with my Samsung Note 3. After taking 30 seconds to initially connect my phone to the unit, it automatically connects within 10 seconds after turning the car on and is ready to play the music. The included microphone works alright for Bluetooth calling, but could probably be better. Unfortunately the Mirrorlink does not support my phone. The HD radio works well without having to make any changes to my antenna.

    The full equalizer is a nice feature and really helps tune the sound the way I want it. There are also a few different subwoofer settings that allow you to fine tune that, and a loudness setting is also included.

    Pros: Good unit for the price Many ways to tune the sound Friendly interface Hey, it's a Pioneer.

    Cons: Lack of Mirrorlink support for my phone, but not the units fault. Volume gets loud really fast. Around 10 is normal listening volume, 15 is deafening. Glare makes the screen near impossible to see, but that is the same with most screens.

    What can I say. I am glad I bought this from Crutchfield. I had to call support for 3 different issues (2 were not in my control, 1 was from me being stupid). As for the review of this Receiver, I cannot be happier. I spent 2-3 weeks looking at all the available units, weighing costs, features that I wanted, and reviews. This unit is excellent. The install was not difficult (Except for the parts that I made difficult, or had to remove the unit because I missed a wire). The bluetooth is what I really wanted this unit for. I was not disappointed. reading all my music from a 32GB flash drive, again, perfect. BT controls of my LG G3 phone are again spot on. DVD's play. I cannot say anything about the iPhone or Andriod app controls, since I use USB or BT connections. Over all I love this headunit.

    Pros: Menus are easy to follow, sound quality is excellent. Install was easy. BT works like a charm.

    Cons: None that I can see at this moment. I am very happy.

I bought $100's worth of cords to connect my iphone5 and it doesn't work half the time says "accessory not compatible" what ? didn't I just spent extra $100 bucks to make it compatible. So yeah, it say on the screen most of the time "accessory not compatible" black screen .. totally suck,, at least it sounds good ,, not happy , spent 225 to have it put it and cords ran clean, just to have it not work write,, please tell me a stereo that does work right and I'll buy it , who cares how much , I just need something that works right ,, not happy customer

    Pros: sounds good

    Cons: app radio doesnt work half the time getting a '' Accessory not compatible " when it is compatible hard to use

    I originally purchased a radio with analog style display. It was hard to read in bright light and not easy to use. Thanks to Crutchfield's generous return policy I switched to this unit. The touch screen operation is great and provides information on the station presets and is easy to select between the audio sources. The home screen shows the selections such as disk, FM/HD, SiriusXM, & Bluetooth. Also phone connection info and access to the equalizer is right there. No guessing. The big screen is super for someone with big fingers. I have not tried the video and probably never will. The touch screen operation was what I wanted. If there was any disappointment it was that it would not automatically switch between my phone and my wife's phone. It will automatically connect to the last phone used, if we need to switch phones we need to connect manually. Not a big deal but I thought it would switch automatically. I used the CRUX adapter kit so all of the steering wheel hand controls work. I am quite handy but had a few questions during installation and operation. The Crutchfield techs are great and seem to have the answers. Also I emailed the manufacturer on an operation issue and got a prompt answer.

    Pros: Big screen with easy selections and good information. The touch system works great. Very intuitive spent almost no time reading the manual.

    Cons: Doesn't automatically switch between phones

    So I get the first unit and playing a CD or iPod the track skips. It gets half way through, then it goes back to the start or goes to the next song. The remote doesn't work. Called tech support and while very helpful, we couldn't find a solution to the problem. Crutchfield sent a replacement. After installation, the same problems were present but worse. Once the receiver played a song, it stuck. No previous or forward worked. Called tech support again. We couldn't find a solution. On their suggestion. I ordered a different product,.Pioneer AVH-X3700BHS. After problems with this unit (and getting frustrated with myself) I had one wire connection wrong. After correcting, the Ipod stuck one one song and would not move. Bottom line, this unit doesn't support the iPod classic (160GB) even though they claim they do. No problem with the 10GB Touch or the 80GB Classic.

    Works and sounds great. Installation did take me a while but not because of the head unit itself. It was pretty easy to install.

    Pros: Lots of features.

    Cons: Only problem I have had is that I think I may have put the XM unit too close to the radio antenna connection. I am getting bit of static on 1 channel. 92.1 FM. One other thought it might have been nice if there was an easy way to connect USB devices to the front of the unit.

    Bought a truck that already came with a DVD/Nav Head Unit, but it was a Kenwood. The interface was very confusing and difficult to make simple selections or changes. After already owning 2 head units by Pioneer, I keep running back to them for their ease of use and adjustability. My first DVD player from them was a AVIC D3, which at the time was one of the higher end models. To this day, it is still rocking! But, with the advances in technology, their head units have become even more user friendly with expansive options. I'm definitely happy with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone looking for a DVD Player at this price point. Since I use my phone for navigation purposes, there wasn't a need for the DVD/Nav Head Unit. Save a little money going this route.

    Pros: Ease of use/User Interface, Styling, Quality, Multiple Connections in the Rear for Expandability

    Cons: Face plate/screen does NOT detach as in other models. But, that's not too big of a deal for me. But, it might be for someone else.

    AWESOME!!

    I purchased this unit and installed it about 10 days ago. Using the harnesses suggested by Crutchfield install went pretty smooth. The iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR Interface Module used to retain the factory steering wheel controls was a little tricky and took some guessing. The hardest part was getting the website to flash the module. I really wish the instructions had been a little more fool proof because i found myself wondering why i had so many extra wires often. Another thing to keep in mind and I'm not sure if this is do to my vehicle or the actual unit size itself but i had to do a lot of trimming to my dash to make this fit. I installed it into a 2012 ram 1500 with the center console. i actually ended up cutting a metal support bracket in my truck because it wouldn't fit. i will say tho after everything was all installed you cant even tell. the radio has a lot of great features but some require addition cord to take advantage of it. To get satellite radio you need a wiring adapter. To use Iphone App Radio feature you need two more wires. I brought the correct wires to use app radio but still could not get it to work not to mention the wires themselves are very bulky. The touch screen sensitivity is perfect and changing between menus/options is great.

    Pros: Touch screen sensitivity is great. Sound is great. I like that i can change themes and button colors. looks great

    Cons: Have to buy additional costly wires to use some features I had to modify my dash to make unit fit. Wiring harness had poor instructions that I had to print/view online and were not included in box. couldn't get iphone app radio to work even after buying correct cords. kept saying item is not supported.

    Quality head unit easy to install good support

    Pros: It's sounds awesome it was way to easy to install

    Cons: Pioneer app radio sucks they nickel and dime u for every accessory that goes with it then there's no updated software to use with the iPhone 6 so if I want to use appradio I can't update from iPhone 5s to a iPhone 6

    Awesome head unit, replaced an old pioneer head unit that was 7 years old. I could notice the difference in the quality of sound right away, subs even seemed to sound more powerful which is kind of weird. It is nice being able to charge my phone through the included USB cable. The screen has awesome resolution and the touchscreen is very responsive.

    Pros: The ability to change to color of the buttons and screen is a nice option, also it has quite a few customization options. Screen resolution is amazing. Sound is amazing, you can adjust anything you want. Plays data DVDs, 1500 songs, USB. Able to charge phone with include USB adapter. Can play Pandora and Answer phone calls on head unit.

    Cons: Have to buy a separate device to get full use of your Android phone to use apps on the head unit, like use Google maps and other apps.

    Great head unit for the price. Installation in 2006 Chevy Equinox was quick and easy with all the adapters need to retain stock functions. I was pleasantly surprised how well the steering wheel controls worked with this unit. I expecting to loose a little bit of functionality, but everything works great. I bought this unit for my wife's car and she couldn't be happier. I also installed a backup camera that works seamlessly with this unit.

    Pros: Ease of use. Great features. Ease of installation. Clean looking install. Looks like it came stock in the vehicle.

    Cons: Doesn't seem to have quite the bass response the stock unit had, but still sounds good.

    Got it set up
