Crutchfield customer from Charleston, SC on 1/2/2020

2008 Honda Pilot

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Radio is great, easy install on Honda Pilot. CarPlay works perfect. I was hesitant about having a touchscreen for volume instead of a knob but it works great. The CarPlay connection is in the back so I would plan on buying an adapter to replace a cigarette port somewhere for the usb connection port. The microphone works great and picks up sounds good but it's hideous. They want it mounted near the gauges or the visor. It's real cheap looking Luckily I had a spot perfect for it inside the dash near the keys that was louvered. Other then that this is a very clean looking radio. The screen is easy to see but does seem to collect a lot of finger prints.

Pros: Great sound Easy install Very clean look no buttons visible when off

Cons: USB in back Microphone is bulky

CarPlay, sounds great, and top notch service

Crutchfield customer from Bedford, TX on 12/31/2019

2013 Hyundai Elantra GT

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very happy with the choice of this receiver. Lots of options, settings that are easily adjusted, and CarPlay on top of it all. The Pioneer UI is easy to work with but it seems a bit dated and since I don't plan to use it without CarPlay it doesn't really matter except for settings. On the settings side you can make favorites of your preferred options so you don't have to scrolls through every option they have provided. AND, once you tweak the sound settings this thing sounds great. The included Microphone picks up my voice well and calls through the unit on CarPlay are crystal clear and much much better than the bluetooth OEM that was in the car before. All in all it's a huge step up! Now the install was pretty straight forward and with the Crutchfield install data sheet it was much easier. I wish the PAC RadioPro 4.2 had much clearer install info and their website was not much help at all. Had to call Crutchfield to work through a few details including how to wire some if the cables to the ODBII port. Once that was figured out and wiring all put together all the steering wheel controls worked like a charm. Very glad I got the full package and happy I got it from the Crutchfield folks as they were top notch. Now may have to out one in my daughters car....

Pros: CarPlay, easy settings with lots of options, sounds great once tweaked, Crutchfield support

Cons: PAC RadioPro steering wheel control worked well once got through the poor OEM instructions

Head unit is good however not happy with Crutchfield. They claim the factory backup camera will work with the correct added on accessory which I purchased. After hooking everything up turns out back-up cam doesn't work, called customer service and after 10-15 on the phone was told sorry doesn't work call maestro (Ilink controller) and see if they can help you.

Very impressive head unit

Crutchfield customer from Salt Lake City, UT on 12/8/2019

2002 Toyota Camry

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I am impressed with the overall sound quality, features, and responsiveness. I have never liked touch screen controls, and it is difficult to turn down the volume quickly, but this unit is very impressive. I love the amount of visual customization options and equalizer settings. I have not connected the backup camera yet, but Bluetooth works great as well as radio listening. The unite looks very clean and with the installation tools provided by Crutchfield, installation took maybe fifteen minutes with no broken trim. I HIGHLY recommend paying for the extra installation pre-wired wiring adapters, detailed instructions, and tools. That made this my easiest install job over a personal history of at least 50 install jobs. Great unit, great site. It's worth the extra money to buy here.

Pros: Responsive touch screen Great audio quality Many visual customization features Many equalizer options Software is not clunky User friendly interface Looks great/professional Manual and automatic dimmer

Cons: No CD player (obviously/not really a con) No front facing USB (It's in back) No physical controls (personal preference)

The good: Good price point for CarPlay from a good brand. Bluetooth connections work well, CarPlay is responsive, and the capacitive touch screen is much nicer to use than any resistive screen I've seen. The So So: The front ("nose" from other reviews on other sites?) is short / shallow. In my Wrangler that left a significant protrusion of dash under the unit and I pulled all out to swap the Metra 95-6511 in favor of SCOSCHE CR1291B brackets to push it forward. The Bad: The Pioneer UI is ridiculously bad and counter intuitive. Wanted CarPlay so not normally a problem - but there are things you just have to do with the stock UI (like parting bluetooth). Pioneer desperately needs better UI design.

Ok, but not recommended

Crutchfield customer from Aztec, NM on 10/15/2019

2011 GMC Sierra

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Let me start off with saying the user interface is garbage, so if you don't plan to use CarPlay/AA click the back button right now. Also I bought the receiver because it can handle multiple phones, but I did not know that it can't Bluetooth while in CarPlay mode. For use in CarPlay mode it is serviceable. Check to make sure you have the latest firmware because that caused issues for me. It is still glitchy even so, once or twice a week it will not load CarPlay, so I try to Bluetooth and it won't hook up so I have to pull over, shut off the truck and restart and it will stay off for 3 minutes and then boot up and work fine, just a hassle.

The unit has shut off a few times and / or lost communication with steering wheel controls but other than that, I really enjoy the Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth calling is very clear. The unit is large so it does not leave you much room for all the wiring harness / idatalink maestro. The touchscreen works well and overall I am pleased. I just hope the issues that I've seen at this point do not come up more often.

Great radio overall. A few minor bugs but they are to be expected. For this price point there isn't a better option for CarPlay in my mind. Especially if you don't like buttons like me. The touch screen is super responsive and stays pretty clean too.

Pros: Good price point for features offered Touch screen is awesome No buttons Good UI Fast Boot Up

Cons: Occasional glitch when connected by Bluetooth but nothing that can't be fixed easily by toggling between sources

A real nice upgrade from the factory stereo in my 2007 F150, looks like it belongs there. Customer service suggested everything I needed pre-purchase, including the inexpensive plastic tools for body panel removal. The ready harness service would be a bargain at twice the price, made installation very simple and no worrying about the right wires, crimps etc. Tech support awesome, 2 installation questions answered quickly and accurately at 6pm on a Friday night, try that at a box store. Not my first Crutchfield purchase and won't be my last! What a great company.

When using car play, the user functionality is great. The biggest draw back is that the reverse camera doesn't always turn on and the display often errors out. Didn't think that was something I would have to deal with. I would expect it to just work. Wish the product came out better.

Pros: Carplay, touch screen responsiveness

Major upgrade from factory radio. Simple and easy to use, as well as being a cost effective radio. A lot more options over factory. Just disappointed I didn't upgrade sooner.

Pros: Major upgrade over factory. Easy to install, music quality has significantly improved. Have had a bass knob installed with factory radio but can fine tune speakers and subwoofers a lot more. For a cheaper radio and an upgrade from factory, I would definitely recommend this unit.

Cons: Haven't found any yet

Fits great in my 2011 Wrangler JK. Screen controls are good and doesn't glare. Sound is great too, a great upgrade from OEM. Car Play sounds way better when connected via cable than music over BT. Definitely should have gotten the iDatalink module vs the $70 one, can't use the factory mic and lost compass, plus something is chiming on vehicle startup but have no idea what it is. That's not a reflection of the head unit however, that's great.

Pros: Good sound, fits well, looks great.

Cons: Should have gotten the iDatalink.

Crutchfield customer from Chula Vista, CA on 3/28/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Who needs disks? Upgraded my HU on a 2003 Mustang equipped with a Mach 460 (pain to maniuplate this factory setup) system. With the Crutchfield premade harness and Metra Dash kit, install took about 10 minutes, fits and looks OEM and couldn't be happier. Apple Carplay is a must and works flawlessly (note, I could not get aftermarket USB hubs to work, had to use the supplied USB extension cable) BlueTooth functionality works amazing for audio, music streaming, pandora, spotify, etc. With the supplied Mic, even in a car with off-road exhaust, making phone calls is easy with Siri and people can hear me easily, and I them. Spotify and Panora integration shows audio art and sound quality is great. Capacitive touch is great and worth the no disc option. Even with a screen protector I have NO issues with responsiveness. Don't hesitate, works as advertised, makes my older car modern, would buy again in a heartbeat!

Pros: Looks, fits, functions OEM considering all modern cars include Apple Carplay Capcitive Touch is very responsive BT integrates perfectly with streaming services Mic is sensitive enough for calls in loud car

Cons: None, for the price losing a disc is not a problem.

Great update for an old F250

Peter from Trussville, AL on 3/13/2019

2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I agonized over all the choices for a radio to fit my 2004 F250 but in the end it came down to Apple CarPlay and the touchscreen so I could use my phone for NAV. I love this radio but the "modifications" scared me. 1. There is a "modification" warning that you have to remove the "entire dash" to remove the new radio once installed. They should say "dash facia" because in reality it's trim around instrument cluster and radio can be removed in 15 minutes or less. 2. Don't use the round head screws that come with the radio to attach the Metra side brackets. They stick out too much and will interfere with the install. Use the flat head screws, three on each side and make them snug and don't over tighten as they will distort the plastic of the Metra brackets. Be sure and "justify" flush the Metra bracket with the top edge of the radio chassis so there will be about an 1/8' overhang on the bottom where the Metra filler strip will go as the last step. 3. I looked at several YouTube videos of people "modifying the dash" using drills, files, Dremel, etc. The finished product didn't look very good in my opinion. So, after I removed the old radio, I removed the dash facia to enlarge the opening on the workbench. I did all the cutting from the backside with a Fien oscillating saw (Rockwell Sonicrafter) with a "push cut" blade on the slowest speed to not melt the plastic. Scribe lines along the back for guidance and then clean up with bastard file. Then test fit th

Pros: Clean look, touch screen, good sound, and CarPlay make this head unit a great value. Crutchfield staff are helpful when you need help - as always.

Cons: To install this double DIN in the F250 "correctly", it takes some time to do a clean looking job. The instructions are good but not great.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased the Pioneer MVH-1400NEX for my 2011 Chevy Suburban because I wanted to upgrade the standard radio and add Apple CarPlay. I ordered the MVH-1400NEX with the pre-assembled wiring harness option from Crutchfield. This made the installation much easier and a nice option. One issue I did was not expecting was having to program the Maestro Rr module that comes with the harness to integrate all the Chevy OEM equipment to work with the MVH-1400NEX. It would be nice if it could be pre-programmed from Crutchfield with the options I selected on the order form as part of the wiring harness pre-assembly charge. Since I have all Apple computers, and had to install a Windows virtual machine on my Macbook Pro in order to install the driver through Internet Explorer to program it. After that, the installation was easy. I checked out a youtube video on how to take the old radio out which was a great help. It looks awesome and sounds great while also incorporating all of my Chevy Suburban OEM buttons sensors etc... The Apple Play works great too!

Fantastic unit. I bought it for Apple CarPlay, but even the radio sound is a massive improvement from my factory radio. The Waze integration is terrific, and I love all the hands free controls for phone and text. I'm still discovering its capabilities (not everything is documented in the manual). For example, I just discovered that a long press on the "Mode" button on my Honda Pilot's steering controls activates Siri (yay!!). Figuring it all, but loving what I've already found.

I read a lot of reviews so I knew exactly what I was getting. Apple car play works flawlessly. This Pioneer has more than I know what to do with. So many features that I haven't had it long enough to really use them all. I specifically went with this model because of the capacitive touch screen. It works flawlessly. Very responsive and quick.

Pros: Capacitive screen Apple play performance Features galore

Cons: None (I researched before I bought)

Great easy to use

BJ from San Jose, CA on 9/30/2018

2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Fits perfectly in a Toyota FJ Cruiser. Functions are fairly easy to use and the screen is very responsive to touch. I would like it to auto play bluetooth or carplay once the car starts though instead of of having press play every time the car is turned on. It transfers apple musics music artwork via bluetooth unlike other models so that is cool plus. I'd also prefer it to play using apple carplay instead of the ipod feature at times when it is plugged in. I obviously would prefer it to go directly to apple car play instead of me having to navigate and selecting carplay myself. Otherwise it is a great stereo deck. I am enjoying it.

Pros: Interface is very responsive Clean OEM look

Cons: Does not play automatically when the car starts. Uses ipod feature at times instead of directly going to apple car play when connected.

I am pleased with this receiver with a small criticism. At times when I plug-in my iPhone X it is not recognized and I have to disconnect, turn off then back on the receiver then reconnect. It's an annoyance but after all is connected the operational experience is good.

Pros: Nice interface. User friendly.

Cons: iPhone connection sometimes unreliable at first connection.

Sleek and sounds good with pretty good feature set.

Eze from Topsham, ME on 9/18/2018

2011 Ford F-250

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very sleek unit. Sounds great and has no buttons! I can pretend my F250 is a Tesla. First off, getting this as a kit from Crutchfield with a OEM tailgate handle back up camera, the datalink module, ford integration adaptor, dash bracket kit, and some tools was Brilliant! There tech support made a possible nightmare a pleasure. Now about the Head Unit. With all the integration stuff from the kit, I am able to use most of the steering wheel controls and built in Ford Sync features as before. I bought this for CarPlay and it works, but you must add the aftermarket microphone to use any iPhone audio input (Siri) etc. You must also use the USB port on the back of the unit to use CarPlay, it will not route through the sync system. That means you must leave a usb wire dangling out some random spot or get a usb plug that you can put in place of a cigarette lighter. I am trying this with one from Crutchfield (on order) I am used to Retina displays and the CarPlay image quality on this is quite low, but I can get over that. The back up camera comes on seamlessly when I throw it in reverse! The display dims when I use my lights and is nice at night, but I run my lights in the day and the screen is very dim (also back up display useless with lights on in day). The unit has a display feature that blacks out the whole screen with one touch which is great at night. I still have to talk to tech support to see about some of the stuff I would like, but this is a sweet unit.

Pros: Sleek touch screen

Cons: screen resolution could be better

The good: it plays music The bad: oh boy! The bad! -The "auto-dim" function is not auto and does not dim. -The time of day dim does not work either. -There are TWO iPhone music apps with different functions. The issue with this is sometimes you can't get to the one that lets you "love" music. Also, the primary music app, after playing the first song, always shows the previous songs album art. -Sometimes when pressing the "switch" button, the display turns off.

Pros: Plays music

Cons: TNTC

When connected for CarPlay, the audio skips intermittently every single time I use the head unit. The unit was swapped, but both units exhibited the same problem, even with different USB cables. It's a very irritating issue. Otherwise it's a solid unit. Debating on whether I should just return it and go with a different brand.

Pros: Sound quality and options. Provides 7.5 watts to charge the phone.

Cons: Audio always skipping in CarPlay.

Lots of features, easy to install, and looks nice. The interface is horrible which is not unique to this type of device. There is no logic to the controls. Things that are barely relevant are on the front screen and things that are important are buried deep in settings menus. The volume buttons should be knobs. But, as they are screen buttons, they are way too small to confidently hit while driving without looking.

Pros: Quite capable from a feature standpoint No problems installing Excellent price

Cons: Horrible interface Confusing to operate Requires too much looking at the device to operate

This thing is great! Now, when I say that I mean it works well. Installation was a challenge to say the least. Okay, I struggled a lot to get the stereo working with the camera. This is not a knock on the product, but rather attesting to the reality that I was in over my head. So, you ask... did he finish the job? Yes, yes I proudly did finish the job. However, not on my own. I called tech support so often that they knew me by name. In fact, we will probably be taking turns hosting each other at Thanksgiving, exchanging Christmas gifts, and I cannot wait for the Christmas letter updates. So, yeah, we talked a lot.... its not good when they answer the phone and say, "Hey Paul...." Seriously, they did a GREAT JOB! I have a feeling that many may have retired after my "stereo event", but nevertheless they did a great job of helping me out. I will say that I LOVE Apple CarPlay. In fact, my wife and I love it so much that our newer and nicer van is starting to get jealous of my older and boo booed pickemup.

Pros: - Apple CarPlay .... Yes, I love the Apple Compound with the perfectly chilled Kool-Aid. - Touch Screen is AWESOME! - Sound is Great! - Did I mention Apple Car Play?

Cons: - No Apple Kool-Aid dispenser - does not have Steve Job's perfect Kool-Aid recipe built into the stereo (Tried to find it, but not there... may have voided a warranty.... Just kidding!) - it does not plug my phone in for me - it's making me want to upgrade our head unit in our van

I had this unit installed by a pro so I cannot speak to the ease of installation but I can speak to the improvement over the factory premium audio head unit in my 07 car. The amp and speakers in my car are really nice but the head unit that i had wasn't even close to this one. Loving Apple Play and App Radio. Make sure to spend the extra $$$ on the installation kit as my installer said it was super smooth to install with the supplied wiring and faceplate. I honestly couldn't be happier. Kinda nice to say "Siri, play Stan Kenton" and have the music start. Great customer service from Crutchfield. Keeping all of the steering wheel controls and adding the OBD interface is GREAT.

Pros: sound convenience integration appearance

Cons: Not quite as intuitive as I'd like but not that complicated.

For the price, this u it is awesome! Who needs a CD player in 2018? Not me... who needs an expensive in dash GPS unit that is prone to failure when even the auto manufacturers are getting rid of them for something like this unit. Being brutally honest though, the program that comes on this unit is pretty crappy and tough to navigate. However the Apple CarPlay is fantastic, bright, and simple.

Pros: Price, features, name brand, good sound quality and EQ adjustability. Fit and finish.

Cons: No front mounted AUX or USB plug ins. They are mounted on back of unit. Having to run one wire to my parking brake wiring. If you don't run this wire some features become not available, such as EQ...

I wanted to upgrade my oem car stereo with a unit that had Apple Car Play and that could produce a louder better overall sound. So I stumbled upon this Pioneer head unit. The nice thing about buying from Crutchfield is that they will tell you if it fits your car and what you'll need to make it look like a clean install. So the worry is put to rest. The unit was fairly easy to install and performs great!

Pros: Features. Sound reproduction. Has a clean aesthetic.

Cons: The only con is that the graphics can be a bit laggy.

This is a great receiver for the price. Seems like the only capacitive touch screen on the market from what I've seen. Which is the reason why I bought this one. Everything works very well but be aware that the screen size is rather small. This unit also lacks some of the features of higher end NEX. For instance there are no customizable backup guides. You must purchase a camera with this overlaid if you want this feature. It also does not support Android auto. Appradio is essentially worthless. Over all this is a great unit that sounds incredible. If you have an iPhone this is a sound investment.

There are two brackets out there. One's price is good, the other costs a lot more but has the harness. Both are black. I used the less expensive one and got gear from Crutchfield.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I really wanted to love this, but I cannot agree with all of the 5 start reviews. It is a great price for a good name unit with CarPlay, and I chose this unit over the 1440 because this one has a capacitive screen and the 1440 has a resistive screen. However, this screen doesn't support multi-touch, so I'm disappointed about that. I want to pinch to zoom in the maps and that doesn't work. The Pioneer app is klunky. I did get Waze to work which I greatly prefer over Apple maps, but you're either in CarPlay or your in the Pioneer App so to use Waze, you lose all of the CarPlay features. Maybe Waze support will be added to CarPlay at some point in the future. It boots pretty quick (6-8 seconds) and the reverse camera comes on and overrides intro/warning screen so you don't have to wait or tap that. It's a nice clean look in my dash ('08 Chevy Avalanche). The sound is good and I like the steering wheel controls also. Hopefully once I get used to navigating around I'll enjoy it more. I'm not unhappy, just not blown away.

Pros: -Fast boot -CarPlay -Good sound

Cons: -AppRadio needs work -CarPlay only supports Apple maps

Installed this unit today and couldn't be happier! Although the printed installation instructions were somewhat vague the technical help team at Crutchfield came to my rescue ! A bonus for the unit is being able to stream Pandora via Bluetooth! The allele car play integrated flawlessly and you can respond to texts with Siri hands free! You don't even have to look at the display because she tells you who the text is from. Siri is going to be my ring bearer at my wedding!

Pros: Everything! Sounds amazing ! Looks beautiful and does exactly what's it's designed to do.

Cons: You HAVE to hook up the green wire accordingly or most of the functions don't work. It's not really a "con" but for my vehicle it was a pain.

Fantastic headunit, brings my 99 Acura up to date with tech. Love the fully flat face, makes it easier to just wipe clean. Full of features, easy to use. The instructions dont really give much info though. I had no problem hooking up to bluetooth on a test run before full install, but when I completed the install, I could not get it to hook up. And the instructions do not offer detail on pairing. I finally figured to 'forget device' from phone, then it went and auto paired by itself. Yes you do need to connect by wife for carplay features, but you figure, those features drain your phone battery anyway, so why not connect and charge at the same time? Great unit over all. Makes my stock speakers even sound good!

Pros: Lots of features and pretty straightforward to use

Cons: instruction sheet doesnt go over much, like pairing BT to phone

I considered numerous different head units, but finally settled on this one. I feel like I made the right choice. Installation was as expected. Features are as described. This head unit sounds and looks great. Took some getting used to not having a volume knob for some reason, but after a few days I didn't miss it. I installed this in my Jeep Wrangler. For the price, I honestly don't think you can beat it. The main feature I was looking for was the Apple Car Play. Everything works as it should. I had no intentions of installing a rear view camera, but after seeing how easy it would be too add, I am considering it. Pioneer has never let me down.

Pros: Price for feature rich head unit, Apple Car Play

Cons:

Love this Pioneer touchscreen Radio. Updated my 2004 Honda Civic to 2018. I used the PAC USBMA6 from crutchfield to replace the cigarette lighter port with a USB radio plug/charger. I had to take out the metal part of the lighter socket to reuse the plastic housing with the USB port. A little Glue made it nice and snug in the old plastic housing. Love that it's Apple CarPlay and that it can play 24bit198 flacs music files.

Want to love it so bad, but 3 major issues

Jason from Alpharetta, GA on 5/20/2018

2011 Toyota Tundra

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this for putting Apple CarPlan in my 2011 Toyota Tundra. Works ok, but not great, and doesn't look as clean as I would expect. I want to love this so bad but there are 3 major issues. 1. SCREEN QUALITY POOR: The quality of the display is not super crisp, it looks grainy. Apple has trained customers to expect a crisp display on an iPhone or Mac. Pioneer's displays are just not up to the same quality. The touch is very responsive, however. It is pretty sweet having CarPlay in my truck! 2. CARPLAY DROPS FROM IPHONE: the unit drops the connection to the iPhone pretty regularly when in the middle of use and I have to unplug the lightening cable and replug it into the phone which is annoying. I have the latest iPhone X and this is unacceptable. 3. DARK SCREEN UNTIL YOU MAKE 3 TAPS: When the unit first powers on, the screen is really dark and you can't see it. So you have to tap a button on the unit, then tap another button to brighten the screen, then tap another button to get back into CarPlay....every...single...time...you start up the car. It doesn't remember to stay bright. So that's 3 unneccessary taps every time you start up the car which is annoying. I give it 2 stars since it drops the connection - you have one job which is the make CarPlay work and the fact that it drops regularly is annoying!

Pros: Pretty sweet to have Apple CarPlay in my truck

Cons: 1. Poor screen quality 2. CarPlay drops regulary from iPhone 3. Dark screen requires 3 taps everytime you start up the car

Very nice head unit with great features for a reasonable price.

Pros: Great replacement unit for those lacking Apple car play & Bluetooth functionality. Capacitive touch screen very responsive. Great to be able to have to Bluetooth phones connected simultaneously.

Cons: Wish it had USB connection in front vs. having to route extension cable (included) from rear USB port. Tuner RDS display would be better if the old style radio tuner display was eliminated allowing longer text display for RDS info.

Bluetooth connects to my iPhone almost instantly on startup (way quicker than in my wife's factory Subaru); voice calls are clear on both ends.

Just installed this unit in a 1998 Saturn SL2. Have been looking to upgrade for awhile but waited for Apple CarPlay. Went with the MVH-1400NEX because we didn't need the cd/dvd player. Who does, with all of the smartphones now days? This unit has a really nice screen, responsive touch, nice layout, CarPlay, and its made by pioneer. Install was straight forward with the supplied Metra adaptor and wire harness. The fit was perfect and it is very solid. We use this older car mainly as a toad behind a motorhome and this is a nice upgrade to bring new technology to the dash.

Tpaktop from Virginia on 4/18/2018

2012 Toyota RAV4

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I got this radio to provide rear view camera for my wife. Don't like cheesy aftermarket screens and mirrors. Carplay and AppRadio live was a deciding factor on choosing Pioneer over other brands. Installed in 2012 RAV4 V6 (no JBL). Trim kit felt flimsy, but once you figure out the puzzle - it fit nicely. Install lasted around 5 hours - took some time to figure out why the rear camera did not work. If you using RCA cable with red wire to feed the power from the radio to the camera - connect RCA ground to radio ground. 14000 NEX is a good value. The screen is amazing, sound is good, radio tuner, bluetooth, carplay - everything feels like a step-up from factory radio. Steering wheel controls are working, so is AUX, but USB cable did not. Not a big dial for me - placement of factory jack is strange and I just going to use USB extension. 2 things I would really like, but don't have: 2nd USB port, so I can plug in 256Gb flash with all my music and HD radio. Well, if you need those things add few hundred dollars and get upper trip radio. Last thing: save yourself some time and get harness service from Crutchfield. I'm handy with soldering iron, but they do it for a small price and it's worth every penny.

Pros: Capacitive screen, carplay, good sound, good price, fast boot and very responsive interface

Cons: Only one USB port, no HD radio, no parking guide lines overlay.

Installed this head unit in my 2009 Kia Rondo last week. After a week of living with it I've found only one thing that I don't care for is my iPhone 7 took a very long time to pair with the radio. I had my bluetooth on and nothing would happen on the radio. For several minutes I was messing with it trying to find any other setting that may prompt it to wake up, but nothing. After several minutes of frustration it began to pair. I see in one of the menus that there is a bluetooth icon but it has never been clickable, even after my phone is paired and working. There's another bluetooth icon that is clickable to turn it on/off but I have no idea what the other one is about, it just sits there. After the initial pairing, it connects fine after that. I bought this for CarPlay and that works really well. Overall I'm really happy with this head unit.

Pros: CarPlay Good sound even through stock speakers Pioneer interface is ok, it only takes a short learning curve

Cons: Bluetooth initial pairing is a little wonky

2011 Ford F-150 XLT

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Let's start with the good... the MVH-1400NEX is by far the most affordable way to get a feature packed capacitive touchscreen receiver with CarPlay into your vehicle. It's a sharp looking unit. The bad news is that with so many features, compatibility and reliability issues abound. "Glitchy" is probably the best word I'd use to describe it. For example, its finicky about video codecs. I still haven't quite figured out exactly why it rejects some files and plays others. When a video file plays, sometimes it's fine other times the audio lags significantly behind the video (same file). Bluetooth connectivity is spotty, sometimes dropping the connection when you go to use it. I installed the idatalink Maestro RR to retain Sync in my Ford, but sometimes it can't find the factory microphone, sometimes its fine. *A helpful note to folks who own Fords with Sync, your in-dash USB port is basically turned into a charging port with no connectivity to the receiver. To use CarPlay or play music or video files from a USB drive, you must connect via the USB cable from the back of the receiver (just an annoyance, but one in a growing list). I will confirm that Crutchfield's legendary tech support is indeed legendary. They helped trouble shoot several issues in install mostly due to incorrect instructions from the idatalink folks.

Pros: Looks sharp Responsive screen Affordable CarPlay

Cons: Video Lag Inconsistent Bluetooth Inconsistent connectivity

This is the first apple car play stereo I've had. I have to say it's an average preformer overall. I wish I had done all the research prior to purchasing, cause it didn't come with a remote and doesn't work my pioneer cd r510 remote. I also don't like when your connected to your phone thru car play and you lose signal and it just stops playing music until you get signal again, or gives you an error. I mainly bought cause it has a flat panel and makes your car look more factory. It has plenty of options to change the sound to your liking.

I was apprehensive about undertaking such an install on my (new to me) used Porsche, but I am a techie who wanted to update the arcane OEM system. The best feature your vehicle can have in 2018 (if you have an iPhone) is Apple CarPlay! This unit delivers the goods for a fair price. Install was tedious (had to scour the forums for tips since Crutchfield doesn't have notes on this vehicle), but I got it up and running within a few hours. The capacitive touchscreen works wonderfully and looks better than a matte LCD when off.

Pros: -Great capacitive touchscreen -Fair Price -Responsive -Great Sound

I had always had some apprehension about installing my own audio system, not anymore. This was a great experience and this new Pioneer system is awesome. I love the design and the fact it is a digital media system, no more CDs. In this age of technology you just don't need them. I want to give a shot out to the tech guys that helped me Dale and JW, love the military splice JW, thanks guys. I'll never buy another upgraded factory system and never wait again to get what I want and install it myself. Thanks Crutchfield, keep up the great work.

Pros: CarPlay Design Ease of setup Consistent with connections both CarPlay and Bluetooth Overall very satisfied

Cons: Get the steering wheel controls.
