About the Pioneer AVH-201EX

Bluetooth® for your car

I love what Bluetooth brings to my drive — answering calls with the touch of a button, and enjoying easy wireless access to the media on my smartphone, whether it's streaming music, podcasts, or music files. Pioneer's AVH-201EX DVD receiver puts that in your car, along with a user-friendly 6.2” touchscreen with multi-color options to access your entertainment and more.

Bluetooth® for your car

I love what Bluetooth brings to my drive — answering calls with the touch of a button, and enjoying easy wireless access to the media on my smartphone, whether it's streaming music, podcasts, or music files. Pioneer's AVH-201EX DVD receiver puts that in your car, along with a user-friendly 6.2” touchscreen with multi-color options to access your entertainment and more.

Pioneer AVH-201EX

The AVH-201EX offers easy-to-use touchscreen controls.

Keep your tunes on tap

Not into Bluetooth? This receiver covers the bases with CD and DVD playback, an aux input, plus Android™ and iPhone® control via USB. You can watch DVDs when the parking brake is engaged, or send the video output to optional rear-seat screens to entertain your passengers on those long road trips. Add a rear-view camera and you'll get a better view in crowded parking lots or backing out of your garage.

Sound quality you'll love

The AVH-201EX rocks out with a powerful amplifier, supported by a versatile 13-band equalizer that tames the rough spots in your car's acoustics. If you're looking for a little more punch, connect an amp or powered sub to the three sets of preamp outputs and kick things up a notch.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

Smartphone note: If you're going to use your smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    It was easy to install. I think all the wires nearly color matched which was nice. It definitely improved the sound in the car. The only thing I don't like is changing the EQ settings is really confusing.

    Nice unit but lacks Siri control. Check the specs and opt for a unit that has this feature if it's important for you. Also the auto FM channel seek and auto assign button is too close to other on screen buttons. It's too easy to inadvertently touch this button and reassign all your FM preset. Major drag

    Pros: Lots of features. Good price point.

    Cons: Lacks Siri control

    Head unit works absolutely perfect. Only issue was remote control was DOA but it was the battery a simple $2 fix. Everything else was easy Crutchfield made it really simple with their instructions.

    Pros: Great price. Quite a few features.

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

    Had for about three weeks and love it. Looks great, starts up quickly. Automatically connects to my Phone via Bluetooth. Takes about ten seconds for music to start playing. It'll automatically start playing the first song in my iTunes on my iPhone if I don't have something else already playing when I get in the car. The phone calls sound great and I've been told my voice come through clearly with no noise on the other side. It sounds amazing. The volume buttons are pretty small and can be tough to use when the car is moving, easy to hit the mute button right below it instead, but it looks clean. Instillation was OK. It fit well, but the factory wiring harness that I paid extra for was worthless. The unit would turn on really slowly, then stay on even after the key was removed. I ended up bypassing the the provided harness since I didn't need it for anything except power and wired it into the windshield wiper fuse. Had to remove all the dash panels to get to it. That was a pain and it took three different phone calls to Crutchfield to diagnose that, but it worked in the end.

    Pros: Sounds good, looks good, starts quickly, connects to Bluetooth automatically, phone calls sound great

    Cons: Volume buttons are small and hard to use

    Just paid off my old 2008 F150. Love the truck and wanted to treat her right. Replaced the stock radio with the Pioneer AVH-201EX. Fantastic upgrade for the price. Like always Crutchfield made the install painless with clear instructions. I even sprung for the wiring harness they put together. All in all it took me about 10 min to put the new radio in. In terms of sound and features this radio was fantastic!

    Pros: Great price for a great upgrade

    Setup was pretty straight forward. Since it has DVD playback capability it had to be wired into the parking brake switch. Taking off enough center console pieces to run the wire was the 'most difficult' part of the install, if you could even call it difficult! Very happy with this stereo.

    Pros: Great sound, more power than stock, nice display and color options.

    Cons: Doesn't like USB3.0 USB sticks, but it's easy to find high capacity drives that are compatible.

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

    The display is good, the wiring diagram was clear enough, and it has one of the best user interfaces I've experienced with head units. However, I think it needs an update or something because the song info does not keep up with the song it's playing on BlueTooth, nor do the album covers on USB. iPhone 7 Plus, iOS 11 and 12, if anyone thinks it's relevant. Every once in a while, it freezes--the music continues but no buttons work. It's only done that to me two or three times but still, $200 and a Crutchfield favorite? If it didn't have these glitches, this would be five stars, no problem. Installation was easy as well, but I think that's more about the car and Crutchfield's help than the head unit.

    Pros: Usability/interface/simplicity of design BlueTooth connection ease Attractive Highly adjustable and customizable

    Cons: Software/hardware out of date or has bugs

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

    The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that it doesn't generate the signal for the backup camera - it expects backup camera to ALWAYS be powered, and will selectively display camera image in either reverse or when camera view is selected. My backup camera also has led lights, so I can't have it powered on while driving down the street. It works great when backing up. Unit sounds nice and works well.

    Pros: Good features, nice fit, nice sound

    Cons: non-integrated microphone, wish it generated the signal for backup camera

    Good radio for the price, the touchscreen is pretty good and the sound output improved my speakers quality. Would've been nice if there was customizable backgrounds and more apple car play intergration

    Pros: Touchscreen, sound output

    Cons: No real apple compatibility outside of the minimum, ie no imagery when songs are playing.

    Great Head Unit for Bluetooth and Backup Camera

    2006 Toyota Tundra

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

    I ordered this head unit to replace the factory stereo in my 2006 Tundra crew cab. The unit fit with the install accessories included by Crutchfield and the wiring diagram provided everything I needed. I installed a Pioneer 4-channel amp (part number GM-D1004) and a backup camera (Accele RVCLPMBS) at the same time. It's been a week now and I have enjoyed the upgraded head unit. Pros: -Bluetooth for music and phone calls, no problems with either -Clear monitor for the backup camera, good clarity -Good functionality, I can access my phone's music library directly through the head unit Cons: -Only two or three background image choices (not a big deal to me, but my wife disagrees)

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

    I cannot speak highly enough about this unit for the price. Crutchfield also did a great job sending me a plug and play harness to help retain the steering wheel controls in my Yukon. One of the only cons I have, and this is a really minor con, is that you cannot use your own images as a background on the unit, that seems to be an across the board thing though for most of the brands in this tier.

    Pros: Inexpensive, Attractive, Great Features, Bluetooth A2DP Streaming

    Cons: Cannot use your own photo as a theme background (this is pretty minor in the grand scheme)

    Bluetooth isnt fussy like other bt devices, connects quickly and automatically, as long as you can get the parking brake wire hooked up. BT calls are clear. Sound equalizer and UI are nice and easy. Only downside Id say (and it might just be my phone (galaxy grand prime)) is that when BT streaming songs, itll sometimes pause then play at a different pitch

    Gary from Granite Falls, NC on 10/16/2018

    2006 Toyota Tacoma

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

    Assume unit for the price. Everything in it works perfectly. Blue tooth cell phone system is clear. USB plug works well with a thumb drive - lots of music on one thumb drive (bye-bye CD's in the seats) - installed a Micro Bi-pass unit at the same time to avoid having to fight with the parking brake power connection. I highly recommend this to anyone installing this unit. I also added a wired back-up camera - works really well. Put it in reverse, stereo keeps playing - camera picture appears on the screen. Sweet! I installed mine in 2006 Toyota Tacoma - my factory stereo was starting have some issues.

    Pros: unit does everything: DVD, CDROMS, USB, Back-up camera support, hands free blue tooth, Blue tooth music - what else could you want?

    Cons: Installation is not for the week of heart or unfamiliar with routing cables through a vehicle and through a dash area.

    An excellent upgrade to the OEM stock CD/stereo radio in my 2010 Tacoma. This Pioneer stereo packs many features such as DVD-CD play, bluetooth, adjustable illumination display, remote control, usb auxiliary port, and a backup camera option at a great price. Along with Crutchfield's excellent lifetime customer/technical support there's no better deal.

    Pros: High quality stereo with multiple features at a great price. Crutchfield's customer service and technical support is the best.

    I love all the features of this unit. Nice integration with the phone. I started with wanting a back up camera. Rather than paying for another screen with wires that I would have to mount someplace, I looked at this unit. You can buy stereos anywhere, but you can't get Crutchfield's support anywhere else. Their ReadyHarness Service is very reasonable and makes installation a snap. The mounting kit fits the unit nicely in the dash. I had an issue while installing and the answer I needed was only a phone call away. Great product, great service.

    Upgrade your ride Bluetooth, DVD, & backup camera and more...

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

    My ride is a Nissan Maxima 1999 and I was having problems with the factory radio (various situations) and was undecided in making a change. I called Crutchfield after one and a half month reading infinite reviews and ordered the Pioneer AVH-201EX head, the Kicker speakers 43CSC674 speakers, and the Boyo VTL17LT backup camera. This was an instant ROI (Return on investment) I turn my Maxima from a squeaky loudspeaker to a concert hall. I exhort everyone at Puerto Rico (PR) to share. your experiences with you guys up there in the states regarding Crutchfield products. Ok, back to business listen folks if you want to up grade your vehicles to modern technology ( Bluetooth, DVD, and a nice backup camera) this is the way to go. If, you are technically proficient (do it yourselfer) give it a try otherwise leave the installation to a professional installer. By the way I installed the equipment by myself but I first made a drawing wiring diagram and my doubts were clarified by Mr. Shane-Crutchfield Tech Support. Either way this is a no brainer deal for the buck vs. pleasure it is a Win-Win situation go for it. My special thanks to Mr. Eddie- Pro Sales Advisor and Mr. Shane-Crutchfield Tech Support without them I probably would have been crunching reviews like crazy. Crutchfield family I love the honest way you do business just like me and here at PR you will always have a loyal customer and promise I wll market you guys for free at PR. Sorry, for the delay in posting the review.

    Good product, works fine. A lot of extra work to fit in my 2009 Ram 1500. Not a clean installation. Have to use microphone for Bluetooth phone, another thing to install and route.

    Pros: Bluetooth, Backup camera input

    Cons: Doesn't fit 2009 dodge RAM without modifying the dash.

    I have had my new Pioneer stereo for a little over a week now. I could not be happier with the product so far and the customer service I have recieved. They do an excellent job of making sure you get what you need for the vehicle you need it for. Everything went very smoothly. A bit of advice. Pay them to build you the custom plug and play wiring harness, it is entirely worth the cost.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: None

    Great unit, with Crutchfield experts doing the wire connections, it was easy to install myself.

    Pros: Great sound, about the same quality as the original JBL system.

    Cons: None for me but the DVR connection requires wiring from the parking break. This could be a bit hard for inexperienced installers. I did not want DVR anyway.

    Nice, intuitive system, but lacking in radio reception and SWC

    2014 Toyota Corolla

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

    I was hoping to give this unit a higher rating. I've installed several systems as a DIYer, so I've seen easy to difficult installations. Overall, the instructions for this unit were middle of the road. The difficulty is mostly due to the various options between brands and vehicles, I think. I installed this in a 2014 Corolla S. This Corolla has the easiest dash panel/unit removal I've seen. You can remove the panel and unit literally in 10 minutes. The panel doesn't really require a pry tool as you can simply remove it with your fingers starting on the lower right edge. Anyway, I probably would have gone with the next step up (their Car-play unit), but that system is almost twice as expensive and the installation hardware is about the same price as this unit. That pretty much made it a no-brainer. My disappointment is that I expected full steering wheel control. For my car, the right/left scan buttons do not work and none of the phone (on/off hook) or voice command buttons work. The volume controls, mode button and track selection works, but that's about it. I spoke to Robert (tech support) and he was very nice, but basically said that's about all I can expect. Oh - lastly, the radio reception is absolutely horrid. I plan to remove the unit again to see if the antenna connection is not seated correctly. If I can't fix that problem, I might return the system. Positives are that the layout is intuitive, it sounds great and the fit is aesthetically p

    Pros: Intuitive layout, great sound and fit my car perfectly.

    Cons: Poor radio station reception and only partial steering wheel control functions.

    Android compatibility a myth

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    If you're thinking of running your Android through the USB (thus supposedly getting Android control) you can forget it unless you have an old phone. No, I have an old phone. You need a REALLY old phone. It took a while for the tech from Crutchfield to find out that after Android OS 4.x they changed the USB output so that they can't be used as a music player. While I don't blame Pioneer or Crutchfield for that change, Android 5 was released in 2014. 4 years is long enough for Pioneer and Crutchfield to figure out that most Android phones are NOT compatible. I was less surprised that my iPod Nano 4th gen didn't work, but that information was documented. Then there's the time I've spent trying to get a USB thumb drive working as an alternative. I had three thumb drives- 1 Lexmark and 2 SanDisk. It didn't matter which format I used for the 2 16 gb drives (the Lexmark and one of the SanDisks)- they didn't work. The 1 gb (too small to be useful) did. I don't have a problem with buying a new thumb drive, by neither Pioneer nor Crutchfield provides any information on which drive or format should be expected to work. Pioneer says Fat32, but ... The menus are easy to use and configure. The eq is flexible and I was able to dial in very nice sound with my factory speakers. Using the pre-wired harness from Crutchfield would have made this a 10 minute installation, if I hadn't been trying to find the parking brake lights for 2 hours. Who needs to watch DVDs in their car? Gave up.

    Pros: Menus are easy to figure out and navigate Equalizer makes my factory speakers sound good

    Cons: USB drive compatibility Android compatibility

    I bought this for a 2016 RAM 1500. It looks and sounds great. I first bought the Kenwood DDX375BT which was a great stereo, but I didn't like the small volume knob and the screen was terrible to see in the sun. It was really easy to return and order this one. I like this one a lot more and it was a little cheaper. It has a good quality feel to it and the screen is easy to see. You can't go wrong with this one.

    Excellent features for an amazing price. I was very impressed by the Bluetooth connectivity and phone call Quality. The external microphone picks up your voice very well being able to control the phone call volume is a great feature. The only downside is not being able to customize the wallpaper; seems like would be an easy fix. Installation was a breeze with Crutchfield support and directions. This radio was installed in place of the factory double din radio in my 2008 Ford F350. I installed this radio in conjunction with the boyo license plate camera. if you do install a backup camera with the system make sure you go into the radio and activate the camera. This will save you thinking that the camera is not working. Overall the experience was excellent and I appreciate all the time that the Crutchfield representative spend with me going back and forth between different stereos.

    Exactly what I was looking for, a reasonably priced double din radio/dvd player. Only thing that it lacks in my opinion is the ability to customize the background screen. My only other issue isn't with the radio itself but with the free installation kit. I ended up buying a dozen deferent one with a better fit.

    Pros: Price, ease of use

    Cons: Could have more features.

    I installed this unit in my 2000 Ford F150 which required dash modification and although I have installed a lot of car radios over the years this proved to be the most difficult but by following the instructions furnished by Crutchfield the finished project far exceeded my expectations. The unit has all of the features I desired and more. I would have given this unit a 5 star but the setup instructions are a little difficult to follow. Also had difficulty with the camera matchup and Crutchfield technician placed the blame on the camera. Actually the problem was a compatibility problem. I had to find the solution to this problem solo. If the tech had called me back as I requested I would have given him some valuable information for future use. Blu tooth response is great. DVD clarity and audio is a 5 star. Radio tuning and audio is a 5 star. Audio is strong and exceeds the OEM unit.

    Pros: Excellent radio reception and DVD clarity. Substantial audio output. Will purchase from Crutchfield again.

    Cons: setup instructions difficult to follow due to the fact they were not organized in a very good flow pattern. Tech support some what lacking.

    The Pioneer AVH-201EX fit all my requirements but one. It does not connect to my iPhone to show maps on screen. Everything else was Great! I spent some time deciding on this unit and I would recommend it. The sound is clear and volume is more than expected. I found it easy to figure out the menus and settings. Crutchfield is great with customer care, support and the technical help line. The wiring is straight forward except for the back-up camera to your reverse signal. I am still working on that. I feel that the price is right where my budget allowed and would purchase again.

    Pros: Great sound, volume, and features. Bluetooth connection was fast and dependable. Background, themes and color choice are adequate.

    Cons: No mirroring of iPhone. Wiring schematic from Pioneer AHV-201EX poor, Crutchfields diagram was Great!

    Love this stereo accept for one thing but first. Love the quality and sound of this product. Originally had a Blaupunkt I ordered from here and had to many issues and sounded horrible. Crutchfield did an AWESOME job helping me to return the old unit and upgrade to this one. Definately worth the additional money. Would have spent more if I had it but for the money you're not gonna beat this unit. Now my only issue is that in the daytime where it sits in my dash sucks because its really hard to see the screen. Wish it was lighted differently or wish I could make it brighter.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Screen brightness

    So far I am enjoying the Pioneer stereo. The installation was fairly easy. The color changing option for the buttons and background is a nice touch. I think it would be better if the volume control was a knob rather than a +/- button for quicker volume control but it's not a big deal. Overall, this seems like a great introductory car stereo and a good replacement for any factory radio.

    So far I am glad I purchased this Pioneer radio. The FM turner is alot stronger than my original Toyota factory radio. Overall the sound is great with more power and better controls for the highs and lows. This radio is not overly complicated and has good basic features. For the $50 over Crutchfields lowest price radio this radio was worth the little extra.

    Pros: Easy to use good features simple installation

    Cons: Unable to upload your own background screens very few limitations as far as the screens but plenty of color choices

    So Happy! This unit is great! Everything sounds awesome, the interface is smart and intuitive.

Crutch field customer service is awesome! After another unit was DOA, and the second unit was poor quality Crutch field put me into this head unit. Thank you! Will be a returning customer!

    It's only been in my Silverado a week or two but love it so far. Easy install only thing that didn't work at first was the steering wheel controls but that was my fault. I had it plugged into the wrong spot. I think it's a good looking unit because I don't particularly like the huge dial on most other units.

    Great Replacement for my factory unit

    Very nice Stereo head unit. Clear display and Pioneer quality. Crutchfield sent the installation hardward and bezel that matched my Tacoma's interior and installation went very smoothly. I would strongly suggest ordering MicroBypass ALL AVH-X Video In Motion Interface so you can bypass the emergency brake wiring and watch DVD's while the vehicle is in motion. I liked this unit so much that I ordered a 2nd one for my wife's 4-Runner.

    Pros: 5 star unit.

    Cons: Wish it had battery backup so when power is removed, it remembers all settings. Just a minor gripe.

    For the price it was great! Its not as super fancy as others but its perfect for all your needs. Easy install.(RV cam or Nav not installed) Fit perfectly in my F150 08. My first time attempting such a task and it was a great experience working with CF. Thank you

    Pros: Easy install. With the help of CF customer service and ready harnesd service it was a great experience, for a first timer!

    Cons: It does seem to have some lag to it but besides that... no complaints. Perfect for the price.

    Bought this for my 03 Avalanche with factory bose and steering wheel controls. Mainly wanted it for the hands free calling and backup camera. I also ordered the Crux CUB-15 camera. The back up screen is very bright and colorful and makes it a breeze to hook up the trailer. I opted for Crutchfield to wire the harnesses. BOY IS THAT WORTH EVERY PENNY! A control box to communicate between the Bose system and a box to communicate between the steering wheel controls and like 7 trillions wires. Well....you know. If I hadn't opted for them to wire the harness, I possibly would have just sent back. This was an easy install. Took longer to mount the camera than anything and that's just because I wanted it to look perfect. What really surprised me though was the sound quality. The factory GM head unit is just junk. I replaced the speakers several years ago hoping to improve the sound quality. This Pioneer really made a huge difference. You can actually hear different instruments instead of just noise and louder noise like the factory unit. I wish I would have upgraded this years ago.

    Pros: Easy install Very clear back up screen Sound quality greatly improved over the factory unit

    Cons: Others have told me the hands free microphone not the greatest

    Good unit but not Great

    I got this unit to replace an old Pioneer AVH1500DVD unit where the touch screen stopped working. I was hoping I could just swap out the old for the new but the wiring harness was different so I had to rewire and solder the connections. Once I got the unit fired up to me it seemed the layout of the touchscreen controls were not as good as the AVH1500DVD unit that I previously had. It is very generic but still gets the job done. The reason I gave this unit 4 stars is because the touch screen doesn't seem to respond very well. I have calibrated it several times with no change

    Cons:

    This is a great aftermarket deck with nice features. The price should make any customer happy and receiving a free dash kit and wiring harness just makes the deal even better. Thanks Crutchfield

    Pros: Great price and nice features

    Cons: The screen could be a little brighter
