Pioneer has created a dynamic addition to your dash with their FH-X720BT CD receiver. You can choose from over 210,000 colors with 10 brightness levels to match the Pioneer's display to your vehicle's dash illumination, or you can set separate colors for controls and display to create the look that makes you happy.
Chose from multiple color combinations for the display and controls.
When you're in the mood, Pioneer's exclusive MIXTRAX feature adds a light show to your dash as you're listening to your favorite playlists and music files. You'll enjoy a pulsating multi-color display that's synchronized with your tunes, plus DJ-style audio transitions from song to song. It's sure to liven up the audio experience in your ride.
You can plug your iPhone® or Android phone into the front-panel USB input, then use the receiver's controls to access your tunes. If you're a Pandora fan, you can take charge from the receiver when your iPhone® or Android phone is connected, and you create new stations while you're on the go.
You can answer a call coming in on your compatible phone with the push of a button on the receiver. You'll talk as if your caller is sitting next to you, freeing up your hands and letting you concentrate on the drive. The FH-X720BT supports Bluetooth audio streaming too, so you can stream music wirelessly from compatible devices to the receiver, plus control basic functions like track up or down.
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.
Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.
Amazing radio great sound over stock. Crutchfield is an amazing company help me out all along the way. Never installed a radio before but they helped me make it easy
this Pioneer stereo was easy to install ,looks good sounds great but I have only had it in my truck for a week or so and twice it sounded like it was skipping on a track being played through my I phone so not sure what to think about that the same track I played it again and no skipping so wondering if it could be an issue with the stereo head unit ? blue tooth works great !
Pros: easy install, sound quality , blue tooth , mixtrax display
Cons: no power off button, possible issue with head unit skipping
Our factory radio stopped working and this is a great replacement. Although connecting the phone is not so intuitive, once performed it connects very easily.
Pioneer has never done me wrong. I actually had a MyGIG system in my Jeep, satellite, gps, touchscreen hard drive.. the works. However, given my phone does all that and more now, I chose the path of a "downgrade" where the stereo is simply an interface for my phone. Wow! Despite the bells and whisltes of the factory radio, that thing was holding the system back. This things sounds incredible and couldn't be easier to use.
installed in about an hour, instructions were easy to follow.
Pros: looks cool, good sound and easy setup and use.
Cons: external blue tooth mic. I thought it had one built in.
Bought it for my son's birthday he loves it
Works great! The sound in my truck is better and the bluetooth is fantastic. The screen can be hard to read sometimes, but I am loving the stereo.
Good sound easy to set up with good FM reception and plenty of features. I am not sure the MIx trac function will be valuable as I am not really looking to b teh DJ in my car, just want to hear the music. The display is bright and easy to read, colr matches my existing gauges which is nice.
Pros: Good FM, plenty of volume , adjustable lighting
Cons: Not sure what the benefit of the mix trac function but I guess in a different environment it might be fun.
Looks great and easy to use. The blue tooth feature is my favorite.
This product is amazing, the different led options is great to customize your car. The hands free calling is nice and clear and the microphone that this object comes with is just as great.
Pros: Custom lights Hands free calling Comes with a microphone Displays album and title names
Cons: You have to disconnect your Bluetooth everytime you get out your car or you will have issues connecting it.
great product. full of fun and looks great in my car.
Pros: great customer service. made installation a breeze.
I absolutely love this radio. Did not know I could make the keys and main display different colors also. I'm doing a red/white color theme on/in my lowered truck so it looks amazing. An awesome radio for an awesome price. I've told my friends to come to the website to shop for theirs also. Will be doing more business here in the future.
Pros: The lights and sound are awesome. Can hook up my phone and iPod through the Bluetooth instead of a big aux chord hanging out in the dash. I love the adapters for the sides to make it flush with the rest of the console too!
Great stereo for a great price with what I needed, quality Bluetooth.
Pros: Bluetooth works well
Cons: A little cumbersome to get to all the functions, but once you learn it you can navigate the controls pretty well.
Very nice relatively traditional radio for the money. The radio installed perfectly and easily in my 2000 Toyota Camry. It is a great replacement for the factory radio adding new features like Bluetooth and Apple connectivity. Instructions and connectors provided by Crutchfield made the installation a real breeze.
Pros: Bluetooth, hands-free for cell phone.
Cons: None so far.
Big sound improvement over the stock radio. I didn't expect this at the low price point.
Pros: Great sound, great bluetooth
Cons: Installation instructions could be clearer.
This unit has alot of features for the price. The blue tooth works great. Lots of cool lights. Great audio controls, but difficult to navigate through the menu.
Pros: Good sound quality. Cool lights. Priced right.
Cons: Difficult to navigate through the menu.
an excellent product for the price. takes a little time to figure out all the features. sound quality is very good
Pros: looks and sounds great.
Cons: menus are difficult
I thought it was a good value. I got it for my teenage son and he loves it.
Pros: Good value and features
Cons: In the advertisement we weren't sure if we could add an existing amp. The help line was great and we were able to attach the existing amp.
I am enjoying my new radio
excellent sound for the price
Pros: good price , like that you can adjust the display color different that the unit color and have a good sound.
great radio for the price ! it does everything I want and need and looks great in the dash as well
Pros: price and features
Cons: none so far
It's been over thirty years since I owned a Pioneer car receiver, so it's nice to know they are still one of the leaders in car stereos. I bought this unit to replace a Parrot Asteroid POS that I bought years ago that just never worked well. What a breath of fresh air when I finished installation and powered this unit up for the first time. I was used to a head unit that would take almost a minute to boot up and enter user mode. Comparatively, this unit boots up, finds my iPhone on bluetooth and automatically starts playing in a bout ten seconds. This sounds like a simple function, but my old Parrot unit made you push a button, turn a dial, select bluetooth, THEN press another button to start playback EVERY TIME IT BOOTED UP! Don't get me started. . .
Another thorn in my paw with the old unit was sound quality. Parrot may know how to design bluetooth devices, but they have NO idea how to process and playback audio. There were always unnatural artifacts in the audio stream such as pumping, breathing, rumbling and thumping, not to mention a brash and brittle high end. To the contrary, the 720 is another excellent example of Pioneers' decades of designing and building some of the best sounding and best performing head units on the market. The sound is clear, well balanced, and has no oddball artifacts in the audio to pollute the music. It just delivers a clean, well-balanced audio signal to your speakers.
Pros: * Clean, clear sound. No noise or unwanted artifacts. * Easy to use and set up. No heavy manual reading. * Adjustable color schemes allow easy match to any car's dash illumination. * Excellent bluetooth operation. Starts playing music within 10 to 15 seconds of startup. * Can be set to dim the display with the dashboard lights. * Source level adjustment allows you to adjust for too-quiet or too-loud sources. * 5-band EQ plus 3-level loudness contour, as well as adjust
Cons: * Single line display means a lot of scrolling. Could have been much better with two or three lines. * No elapsed time on track info display. You can switch to an elapsed-time only display, however (nit-picky). * Main display can be difficult to see in bright sun, just like every other stereo head unit on the market.
The main reason for replacing my factory stereo, which was working fine & sounded great, was because I wanted an aux or usb port to play song files. Mine only had a CD player & a cassette player. I didn't really need another CD player...I haven't even owned a CD in years, but I still ended up buying this one just because of the light show & price, lol. I love the lights & colors, but the sound is pretty awesome too! I didn't even change the factory speakers & it sounds amazing!
It was pretty easy to install. The only problem I came across was the blue/white wire on the stereo...there's only one, but it's supposed to trigger either an amp or a power antenna. My car has a power antenna & apparently has a factory amp too, because when I connected just the antenna, there was power to the stereo, but no sound. So it was either go without my antenna or go without sound, so I just connected both to the blue/white wire & now everything works...so far. There was nowhere in the instructions where it said you could hook them both up together, but there was nothing saying you shouldn't either. I'm definitely not an expert, so I don't know.
Pros: Awesome looking, amazing sound, great price
Absolutely Beautiful head unit. Pioneer in all of my vehicles. Only downside is difficulty figuring out the interface. Still have yet to figure out how to brighten the screen as bright sunlight can easily make the screen unreadable.
Pros: Beautiful. Fits perfectly into vehicle. Sounds awesome. Love all the features i.e. bluetooth, USP, Aux.
Cons: Difficulty figuring out controls. Screen brightness control.
Easy install. Still learning all the features.
Pros: Like the available features.
I bought this unit to install in a 2002 Toyota Tacoma Truck I just got. I packed my cd's away 7 years ago, all my music is digital and on my I-pod.The install was a half hour on the bench soldering the wires together for the adapter harness and then wire nuts & tape. the actual install in the truck was not quite an hour and went very smooth. Kudo's to Crutchfield they make this easy and the install guide is excellent. As to the unit itself very nice looking and you can change the lighting leds to match your dash & interior. The menu's are easy to navigate and setup.This made the speakers come alive, I have it set for vocals with +1 on bass and favoring the rear speakers +1 . My music runs from sixties oldie's to seventies rock and a lot of singer songwriter songs.I ordered a sans ultra memory stick to load the music on. When in the unit it only sticks out 1/ 4 of an inch and holds 32 gig , I have over four thousand songs loaded in three folders Oldies,Country and all my favorites. I cannot say enough nice things about this receiver if you buy it you won't be disappointed.
Pros: Great looking ,wonderful features
I am rating the sound quality at a 3 only because I haven't upgraded my car speakers and I can't listen to the stereo at it's full capacity.
Pros: LOVE IT! It is easy to use and sync's perfectly with my Samsung, I just hop in and start the car...the stereo plays where it left off on my phone.
Cons: The rear bracket that came with the unit so it would fit in my car didn't have a clear place to attach it. It didn't prevent me from installing the stereo nor has it affected it adversely.
Looks good and sound good too
Pros: Great radio
This is a nice car system that works well for updating OEM systems. The unit has great sound and easy to use functions including blue tooth for phone conections.
The only complaint would be the operating instructions are a little hard to understand.
Pros: Excellent value, sounds great! Looks cool too. Easy to install.
Cons: Instructions, for operating
Lots of features on this unit. Crutchfield install kit made it an easy and clean installation. I am very happy with this purchase!
I bought this for my daughters Subaru to replace the factory installed stereo. Customer service was excellent,as always. They made sure I had everything I was need to make the install correct and easy as could be. It did not take much time and everything fit properly. I purchased the Pioneer because I've had them in the past. The sound quality is pretty good. My daughter wanted the Bluetooth capability. She is very happy with that. Linked right up with her iPhone . Good voice clarity, She said its easy to use. She likes the optional color backgrounds. She has experimented with its many options and has personalized it to her specific needs and desires. I would recommend it to everyone.
Pros: Not very difficult to install, many options for customization, Bluetooth capability with steering wheel controls. Great tech support! And a happy kid.
Cons: She has been very happy with everything so far.
This is my first purchase of a Pioneer stereo and I am very impressed with this unit. I am not an audiophile. I was simply looking for a good price on a great sounding unit. I did not want to change the look of my vehicle, so fitting the existing spot was important. I have to say that I think this unit delivered everything I was looking for and even more. The installation was very simple. Operation is pretty easy to figure out and to top it all off it is a great value. I really expected the Bluetooth setup to be more difficult. When I finished, all I could say was "That's it??"
Pros: Value, Bluetooth, Easy installation & setup.
Cons: None that I have found.
Great value for the price. Easy install and setup. Thanks Crutchfield for a great online purchase. You ROCK.
Pros: Great product at a great price.
Great receiver from the van. Sound was great and controls are easy to use. For what I paid for it,I feel like it was a great deal. Blue tooth synced pretty fast and works good. Calls through the receiver are great. Just a good cd player with blue tooth. Really like it and Pioneer I have always had good luck with. Crutchfield had a great price and great customer service.
Pros: Blue tooth. Display colors change or go with stock to match factory color. Call quality is great. Cd player is solid.
Cons: None, it has alot of different functions. So some people might see that as a con. Once you figure out what they all do,it really is easy to use.
You can't miss with this one for function and value. Huge upgrade over my stock head unit and the Bluetooth is seamless and sounds great with my iPhone 6. I spent a lot of time comparing to JVC, Clarion, Alpine and Kenwood entry level double DIN...in the end I simply bought on price. Great news is that it is perfect form my needs
Pros: Bluetooth connectivity is seamless with iphone 6. Easy to answer, hold and hang up. Estimate 2-3 seconds between ending call and resumption of streaming music from phone.
Cons: Menu to adjust equalizer is too complex. It's buried with illumination, etc. There's lots of real estate wasted without an easy "Audio" button to tweak bass and treble.
looks and sounds great. easy install. works well with my galaxy s6
The unit works well in my 2000 Accord. Initially I had a problem because the manual didn't say what color wires went to what, but Crutchfield customer support was awesome. They told me which wires matched and everything was fine. Even the steering wheel controls work. It's the most helpful and comprehensive customer support I've ever used.
Pros: Bluetooth works really well with my Samsung Galaxy 6 and Spotify. Phone calls are good too. Sound is clear and microphone picks up well.
Cons: Can't find a color to exactly match the backlight. Being made of plastic, the buttons feel light and cheap, as if they might break if you push on them too hard.
Simple easy install. Great buy for the money. Way better than OEM.
Pros: Looks, sound, install, Bluetooth.
I bought this for my wife's car after putting a JVC in mine. This one is way nicer and didn't cost much more. It was easy to install (minus the steering wheel adapter) and easy to program.
Pros: Easy to install, selection of baground lighting.
Cons: Nothing so far
Unit has great sound. Very easy to install
Replaced factory unit. Has all the bells and whistles one could ask for
Pros: ease of use, style, sound
Cons: needed additional tools to make it fit properly...fortunately I had them
Indash gives easy clear install allows multiple settings for lighting adjustment hands free is easy to use Bluetooth clear and sets to multiple devices.
Pros: Bluetooth easy to use and set up multiple devices saved and switched between. Sound clear and mixer adds to entertainment value between songs. 3mm port helps with retaining the steering wheel controls. Adjustable lighting that can b dimmed at night but bright enough during the day. Overall a great unit!
Cons: Remote is small and easily misplaced but who needs it anyway. Voice commands could be on unit instead of through the phone but for the price who can gripe..
A little easter to install than I thought. Excellent support from Jenny.
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: A little more expensive than I wanted to spend for a "fishing" truck.
It looks great! I prefer physical controls over the touch interface. I find touch interface to be sluggish. This device looks great in my car and made my older toyota feel much newer. The amber lighting looks very nice with my faux wood dash.
All the functions and features I needed
Pros: Product quality for the price, ease of installation
Cons: A tad tricky to program
Upgraded the stock stereo in my daughter's 2002 XTerra. Harness and adapter connected with no problems, maintaining steering controls. Bluetooth streaming works great. Line level install instructions were a little lacking. Everything else was great.
This was a xmas present for my 19 yr old son. Absolutely loves it...cd,Bluetooth,aux in for his iPhone 6! Couldn't be a happier kid. It was an easy install with the provided dash bracket and wiring harness!
Pros: Easy install, great sounding system,looks great !
Good unit for a good price
Pros: Good sound n flexibility to contour n set up your own custom settings. All around good unit for the price
Cons: Radio reception could be a bit stronger n have some more settings but all in all not to bad..
Easy to install with a perfect factory look fit. I really like the sound and the Bluetooth works perfectly with my iPhone6. Thanks Crutchfield!
Excellent radio for the money. I bought it and installed it as a Christmas present for my sister. Her used Forester did not have built in Bluetooth phone or audio. This radio adds both of those features and greatly improved the sound quality of the radio over the stock model. Installation was easy, but there were some aspects that could have been made clearer.
Pros: Price, Sound clarity, Bluetooth features
Cons: Installation for Subaru could have been clearer. Some parts included that were not necessary.
Very happy with this unit so far from what i have used so far. Took a few calls and Bluetooth audio from my mobile device. Overall happy with this product and definitely recommend it.
Pros: Easy to use, was pretty much simple to install
Cons: slight blip in bluetooth where i hear a sudden audio blip and then goes away. This could be the Bluetooth from my phone though.
A lot of deck for the money looks nice. Has a 1000 color combs in deck. You can lock it into one color once you navigate though the menu. The sound is nice .Bass is heavy and you can tweak it in custom setup or go with presets. Its nice to use Blue tooth or USB or input to excess all your music sources.I like to use a large memory stick and store and update 1000s of songs on stick and have it all with me no matter which car I am in. I have another Pioneer DVD dash unit in Motor home so for me the memory sticks a solid library on the move with me. The Focus st has a factory sub in the trunk and with the proper wiring from Crutchfield sent that made the whole install easy along with a adapter wire that was a snap to connect to factory amp to sub. I have found its best t shop price but when you buy from Crutchfield they send for free all the items to make the install a snap plus a call center to assist if you get confused as I did with where to wire in the adapter wire for sub, On a 5 min call made me me understand it all simply. In closing you cant beat the whole package that comes in one price. Pioneer stuff is top shelf.
Pros: perfect fit with installation products. Was easy to install in 05 focus with factory ford subw in focus st. Cruchfield provided all the right wires ti make everything a snap. Sound is great unit looks good in dash
Cons: There is a lot to learn to get through menu to set all settings or understand just where they are. Same with lightning . After playing with it for an hour you get it but if your not a tinker around and play with stuff kind of person then it gets a little frustrating at first but its all good in the end.
My wife immediately fell in love with this . It'll take a few days to figure out all of the settings and capabilities , but she already loves the bluetooth hands free phone and being able to play media from her smartphone . She posted a pic online and now a friend wants the same radio . Outstanding buy and simple installation with the kit that Crutchfield provides . I had to call support on a Sunday to ask about one of the connections and I had an answer immediately . No wonder I keep coming back over the years .
Pros: Simple installation , you just have to know how to take you specific vehicle apart . Crutchfield had the exact adapters I needed . Great sound . Much better than the stock radio . Awesome capabilities . Hands free phone , stream music from Pandora or from files on your phone . Looks great , you can set the display up in many colors and combinations . Really reasonable price . Outstanding "bang for the buck" . Made my wife happy , which makes me happy .
Cons: Pioneer didn't supply a User's guide , and the color coding and legend of their harness was a bit difficult to decipher , while the Metra adapter had clearly decipherable coloration and labeling .
Great radio. Sound quality is very good. Installed in a 2000 Tundra with no problems. Bluetooth connection features were not very clear but eventually we paired our iPhones with the unit and it works well. Voice recognition for calling is easy.
Pros: Great product, good sound quality, nice features!
Great system. Blends in with a perfect factory look.
Pros: Great prices with plenty of features.
this was a Christmas gift for my daughter and she absolutely loves it
Very nice radio.
Pros: Easy to install and use. Great price.
Excellent stereo for the money. Great sound.
Super quick shipping and an awesome stereo
Bought it for my wifes Honda Odyssey. She absolutabsolutely loves everything about it.
Pros: Everything about it!
I was nervous it would not compare to my factory Bose system in my 1999 Infiniti QX4. However, using the accessories recommended during purchase, all installed perfectly without any issues. The sound was very nice upon initial power ON. It took a few days to get the EQ set up to where I like it. Navigating the menus is a learning process.
Pros: Great sound. Cool lights. I love the Bluetooth feature. Phone calls hands free via the radio is just too cool.
Cons: Navigating the menus feels awkward. I naturally want to push the volume knob to turn radio Off, but that's not how it works. It prolly took me 10 minutes to figure out how to power it Off. I know, that's what instructions are for, right? I have yet to read them. Lol. I will one day.
awesome radio cool features
I had been to another retailer and online trying to figure out Bluetooth hands free Android compatible Stereo, wiring harness, and steering wheel stereo control wiring harness. Then I went Crutchfield to what fits my car and it list everything you need and sends the instructions with order email on how to connect. The price with everything I needed was same prices as the radio as the others. The installation was so simple on the xD. Wired everything according to instructions which is really color matching wires. Everything worked including the steering wheel controls. Awesome. Stereo selected Pioneer FH-X720BT. Sound is great, Connect my work phone and my personal phone. Voice quality is great. I used Google Play and download my purchased songs to my sdcard. Sound is awesome through Bluetooth.
Pros: Crutchfield help get exactly what I need. Pioneer FH-X720BT looks and sounds great, works excellent
This was everything I wanted for my husband, and so much more too! The color displays are awesome and it was easy to install and use!
Pros: Lots of different color displays to choose from, handy remote, Bluetooth capable with hands free calling, easy install.
Muy buena compra. Fácil de manjar y mejora la estética del auto.
Excellent buy. It's easy to use and it improves the look of the car.
Cons:Crutchfield response on December 25, 2015 Translation provided by Crutchfield's International Sales & Support team.
quality will be determined in time but everything is great so far.
Pros: Sounds great, can't beat the features or the price.
Cons: Not the best for tailoring the sound; bass-mid-treble
Great unit, very easy to use and all the features make hooking up to my iPad a breeze....highly recommend this to anyone that is looking to upgrade their head unit.
Pros: Great features
Cons: None at this point
Radio sounds great and was easy to install. The only complaint is the display is hard to see in bright sunlight, other than that is is a great radio.
Pros: Great sound an features
Cons: Din display in direct sunlight
Easy install, works great with my iPhone 5, great Bluetooth connectivity, phone feature works great, just what I was looking for...
Pros: Ease of use
Cons: Recessed install
Great product for the price. Easy to install. Manual concise. Cool factor with the color display
Pros: Ease of installation with Crutchfields install kit and expertise
Saw this stereo system in my brother-in-laws Hyundai & was sold. My wife bought this for me for my 2003 Ford Explorer. The sound quality is second to none. It has given life to the truck, I am more than pleased.
Pros: Sound quality, Bluetooth capabilities and ease of use make this a sound product not to mention all the features with a reasonable price.
Replaced the factory stereo in my 2004 Tundra. Hunter from Crutchfield took my info and recommended this receiver. I am beyond satisfied in all areas.
Pros: Great Pioneer quality and sound, color customization, great fit and looks really good in the dash, simple install.
Bought this receiver to replace a busted Mach 460 deck in a Ford Mustang. Speakers were fine, so only the receiver was replaced. With wiring harness and 12v-5v adapter, it wired up easily and plugged in perfectly. Installation took less than an hour, including crimping the wires. Audio quality is significantly better, and this is a good test of the receiver because all other components stayed the same. All the bells and whistles you can want: Aux port, USB port, Bluetooth, multiple display modes and colors. Audio is extremely customizable. Do your homework on high pass filters and subwoofer eq settings. It took me a lot longer to get the audio quality dialed in than to install it. Now I have great sound at a great price!
Pros: Great audio quality, easy install, multiple features, and great value.
Cons: Instructions don't explain the audio settings. Not just your basic treble, mid, and bass. You will have to do your homework to dial it in.
This stereo has everything that you need blue tooth aux usb has light show you can customize I would highly recommend this unit
Pros: Usb aux Bluetooth and good price
This Pioneer receiver is the cream of the crop. It smoothly integrates with my mobile, the included directional mic works flawlessly with Siri and with minimal noise for those who receive my calls, and the sound is great! Installation of the receiver was simple and effortless with the most work being the crimping of wires together for the wire harness. Everything else was a cinch! If I had to make one knock against the system, it would be that the Mixtrax mode is not all that it is cracked up to be (though I really wasn't expecting anything spectacular from it). It is a neat feature, to be sure, but not a reason to buy this product. Everything else is the reason to make a purchase when it comes time to upgrade your car's sound system.
Pros: Clear sound, easy to use, included directional microphone is excellent, smooth installation, looks cool
Cons: Mixtrax is meh
Great for a simple factory replacement. It made the factory speakers come alive.
Pros: Great value for the price. I got it on sale for 119.99. Greatly improved sound over factory head unit. I thought I was going to have to replace the speakers also, but once Installed this head unit the factory speakers came to life.
Cons: It serves its purpose. I was merely trying to replace the factory radio because the face got damaged. As a factory replacement it does great. However I would not use it to run a higher end audio setup.
Fit perfect w/out the kit. Looks great & display colors available match my vete's display perfectly. Only issue was with connector purchased... It was about 10ft longer than needed....stuffed it away in rear storage. Works & looks like it was always there.
Pros: Perfect fit. Sound is great. Looks good.
Cons: Connector cable purchased separately was way too long.....worked w/ it.
I love love love this receiver. Installed it in my 2008 Toyota corolla. It was really easy to install for me. Had to buy some tools to make it easier but it was straight forward from there. The Pioneer guide and manual was pretty useless for install but thanks to crutchfield for providing the additional guide, harness and dash kit. The bluetooth works great and the sound quality is clear. Have no problems with pairing. Great investment.
Pros: Ease of Install. "Coolness Factor" . Hands free calling. Decent price point
Cons: None yet
I have had this stereo since May15, worked well for a couple of months then my display would go on and off. when it went blank I could tap on the screen and it would come back on. After numerous emails to Pioneer customer service they wanted me to drive an hour and 45 minutes to a repair facility. I wanted them to send me a new unit along with a box to send them back the old, faulty unit. They haven't responded to my 2 emails yet and I don't think they will.
Pros: Just an ok unit, if I had to do it all over again I would buy a Kenmore or Sony. The display is nice and the multiple color option is cool. Hard to see in the daylight though even when brightness is turned all the way up.
Cons: Customer service is terrible. I also had a hard time getting the exact quality of sound in my unit. I would go with a larger equalizer.
Pioneer claims to supply an instruction manual; this is actually a list of features with a casual discussion of where the feature attributes are located in the menus. 9 out of 10 complaints on forums are due to the nearly useless instructions. Understanding features will require hours searching the internet for hints from owners and in reviews. If you purchase one of these expect many hours to research and experiment to understand how the features can be controlled and adjusted.
Ratings: Bluetooth; Pioneer seems to have a problem with Bluetooth connectivity. This may be due to manufacturing defects as some owners report good results. In my case I have a phone that will connect with a 5 yr old BlueAnt hands free device over 20 feet away through multiple walls; but not to a Pioneer stereo from 1 foot. Will pair but will not connect for any function . Sound Quality seems v.good Ease of Use: no instructions worth reading Coolness: don't really care but coolness would be better if I could set the feature attributes Build Quality: unknown with out long term experience
My 30+ years experience with product design, manufacturing and quality systems makes me suspect this is a low cost design with low cost manufacturing, from a company giving limited attention to customer experience.
Pros: Long list of features
Cons: No instruction on how to use features; suspect design and manufacturing quality
Easy installation & setup...paired up with all devices nicely. Bought as gift for my Wife...she loves it.
Pros: Solid, nice looking, flexible operation, and easy to install & setup.
Cons: none noted
I like th radio. It'll take a little bit to figure out all the features. However, I saw it on another site a few days after it arrived for less.
I bought this to replace the failed CD player/radio in my '07 Mustang. I would never buy this radio again and I'm very disappointed in Pioneer. It seems the main attraction is the stupid flashing lights - definitely not the radio. Its hands-free Bluetooth capability is totally unreliable with my Samsung Galaxy phone. When switching bands/modes on radio it insists on showing you a light show on each button push before it acts on your button push ... definitely not desirable while driving! Pioneer designed this for the visual whiz factor - not for a useful car radio. If you want a Pioneer spend $100 more and get better quality.
Cons: Cheap and unreliable construction. Unreliable hands-free. Too much focus on glitzy flashing lights and not on basic radio performance.
Great price for a really nice stereo.
Pros: Price point Quality product Good brand name Great support
Cons: Ease of use, as there is so much this stereo can do, but only a limited number of buttons.
