Bluetooth® is just the beginning 

Bring the wonders of wireless entertainment to your car with this sleek touchscreen digital media receiver. Pioneer's MVH-AV290BT digital multimedia receiver gives you Bluetooth connectivity, outstanding sound, brilliant video, and even a rear-view camera input.

More media, less wiring

Bluetooth is a wonderful thing. You can enjoy safe, smart hands-free calling, plus you can access to the media on your smartphone. You can crank tunes from your own digital library, catch up on news, podcasts, or check out a cool new playlist The beauty of Bluetooth is that you can do all of this without messing around with aux inputs and cables. You can also control your tunes using the 6.2" touchscreen.  

Plug in and rock out

If you enjoy your music from other sources, you can plug a device into the AUX input, or connect your iPod®, iPhone® or other device to the USB input. While the car is parked and the parking brake is engaged, you can view video from an outboard video player or that's stored on a USB drive. You can also send the video to rear seat screens (sold separately) so your passengers will have something to watch while you drive.

5-band equalizer

All your digital music will sound terrific on the MVH-AV290BT, thanks to a built-in MOSFET amplifier. The 5-band equalizer brings out the best in any genre of music, and if you want to bring even more punch to your system, you can connect an amp or powered sub to the two sets of preamp outputs.

Add a backup cam

You can also connect a rear-view camera to the MVH-AV290BT and see what's behind you when you're backing up. If you have a big SUV or any vehicle with complicated sightlines, that's a big safety feature in driveways and crowded parking lots.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio 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.

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

    Audio & Tuner Section

    24-Bit/96kHz DAC: For superb quality audio playback, the Pioneer MVH-AV290BT is equipped with a 24-bit/96kHz digital-to-analog converter.

    MOSFET50 Internal Amplifier: The Pioneer MVH-AV290BT is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.

    • CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (or 50 watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)
    Note: The power specifications for the MVH-AV290BT are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.

    Rear Speaker Setup: The rear speaker outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading capability, or they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass) output. When the rear speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp outputs also switch from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer operation, you can connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm passive subwoofers or a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you prefer to use a single 2-ohm subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of speaker leads, leaving the other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum output provided when a 2-ohm load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.

    2V/4CH Preouts + Sub Control: The Pioneer MVH-AV290BT features two pair of 2.0-volt preouts (Front & Rear/SW). The unit's Rear/SW preouts can be configured as fading rear-channel outputs or a non-fading subwoofer output with a low-pass filter, phase adjustment, and output level control.

    Crossovers: The MVH-AV290BT employs high pass and low pass crossovers to tailor the head unit to your connected speakers.

    • HPF: The head unit's 12dB/octave high pass filter only allows frequencies higher than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125Hz) to your front and rear speakers through the unit's speaker-level or line-level outputs.
    • LPF: The subwoofer preamp output features an18dB/octave low pass filter so only frequencies lower than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125Hz) are output to your connected subwoofer.

    EEQ (Easy EQ) w/ 5-Band Graphic EQ: There are seven stored equalizer curves which you can easily recall at any time. You can choose from - Powerful, Natural, Vocal, Super Bass, Flat, Custom 1, or Custom 2. The Custom 1 and Custom 2 EQ modes allow you to manually adjust the level (+/- 12dB) of each band of the head unit's 5-band graphic equalizer (100, 315, 1.25k, 3.15k, & 8k Hz).

    Audio Settings: The head unit provides further sound adjustments for your car audio system.

    • Loudness: The Loudness function compensates for deficiencies in the low- and high-frequency ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness to High, Mid, Low, or Off.
    • Bass Boost: You can easily boost the subwoofer bass level by using the Bass Boost function. The Bass Boost feature allows you increase the subwoofer level from 0 to +6 (12dB).
    • Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Settings are based on the unit's FM volume level, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from -4 dB to +4 dB.

    Key Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. The beep tone can be turned on or off.

    Supertuner IIID AM/FM Tuner: The Supertuner IIID AM/FM tuner features Feed Forward Control, which avoids multi-path interference. This pre-detection of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion. In addition, the Supertuner IIID creates enhanced stereo during multi-path interference, unlike conventional tuners that collapse to mono. Digital processing reduces distortion, and improves Signal-to-Noise Ratio and stereo separation. Advanced analog technology improves signal processing sensitivity.

    • RDS: The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible AM/FM stations.
    • BSM (Best Stations Memory): BSM lets you automatically store the six strongest stations under preset buttons 1-6 of the currently tuned band. The tuner has 3 FM banks and 1 AM bank. You can store 6 presets for each bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM presets.
    • Local Tuning: Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. There are 4 levels of sensitivity for FM and two levels for AM. The higher settings allow reception of only the strongest stations, while lower settings let you receive progressively weaker stations.

    AV Connections

    AV Input: The head unit has a rear-panel 3.5mm minijack AV input for connecting an external audio/video source device. Your vehicle's parking brake must be engaged to watch a video signal.

    Video Output: A single RCA composite video-output jack allows you to an add external monitor, such as rear headrest or overhead monitor (sold separately). The video output can display a USB or AV-input video signal when its selected as the receiver's source, regardless if the vehicle's parking brake is engaged or not.

    Rear-View Camera: The MVH-AV290BT is equipped with a composite video rear-view camera input for the addition of an optional backup camera (130NDBC8, sold separately). When the vehicle's transmission is put in reverse, the screen automatically switches to the rear view camera (violet/white wire of the harness must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching). Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.0 seconds.

    This unit doesn't give you much control of music selection other than pause, forward and backward. I think if you want more integration, you'd have to get one of the app units.

    I'm not sure about the steering controlls as I don't have them in my car. I imagine they would as long as you're able to wire them into the unit.

    I am a Spotify user as well and avid user with the unit. The unit allows you skip forward and back. It will automatically begin playing the last song and playlist. I will chose my playlist before starting to drive. Volume controls should work as long as connected during installation. Bluetooth phone controls I use with unit.

    The capacity of the drive is not a limitation but the numbers of recognizable folders/files is. The Pioneer will recognize up to 300 folders and a total of up to 15,000 files. You will find this information, and more, by clicking the "Details" tab on the stereo's main webpage and scrolling down below the "Features & Specs" table. I hope that helps.

    Q
    Does the Bluetooth auto connect or do you have to manually connect when getting in the car?
    [ Thomas  Dec 19, 2016 ]

    A
    If Bluetooth is active on your device with no existing connection in place with a headset or other device then, yes the radio will auto connect with your phone. If you are paired with something like a headset you will have to manually connect with the radio from your phone

    [ Lyndon  Dec 20, 2016 ]

    Mine seems to always need to be told to connect (unlike my other vehicles) It remains on my bluetooth list so its relatively quick, so not like a full pairing but still a PIA, particularly if you leave the vehicle often, such as I do in the trades.
    [ ian  Dec 20, 2016 ]

    You have to manually connect it once. Then it remembers.
    [ HENRY  Dec 20, 2016 ]

    You can turn Bluetooth auto connect on and off in the settings.
    [ Thomas  Dec 20, 2016 ]

    after you connect it once, it should ask you the next time your device is on & in the car. as far as connecting, you must press the square on the left then press on the bluetooth icon on the screen

    Is there an auxillary input that is accessible when its installed or is it in the rear?
    [ Thomas  Nov 30, 2016 ]

    Yes In the rear
    [ Dustin  Dec 05, 2016 ]

    It's comes from the rear no front aux input
    [ Jose  Nov 30, 2016 ]
    A
    the aux input is in the rear only so you'll have to use an extension of some kind. The head unit is a VERY nice unit all around though.
    [ Mike  Nov 30, 2016 ]
    A
    All inputs in rear. I ran cables out to convenient location to hookup. I ran iPhone cord through heat vent and plug in when I need it and push it in when I don't. Many ways but I just have a work truck
    [ Benjamin  Nov 30, 2016 ]
    A
    Yes, the auxiliary input is at the rear of the stereo, you will need to buy auxiliary extension cable separately.
    [ Karanvir  Nov 30, 2016 ]

    There is no input on the front of the unit
    [ David  Nov 30, 2016 ]

    Is it compatible with Rear View Cameras when the vehicle is shifted into Reverse?
    [ Crisitna  Nov 27, 2016 ]
    7 answers
    A
    Yes. Looks like Pioneer makes a kit but the plugs are standard and other brands may work just fine. The unit has a wire that detects when the car is put in reverse (probably for newer cars, my 2007 has it) that activates the camera feed.
    [ Miguel  Nov 28, 2016 ]
    A
    Yes. It is far superior to the factory head unit.
    [ THOMAS  Nov 28, 2016 ]
    A
    Yes but depending on the camera, the picture may be reversed. Like the objects on the left may appear on the right of the screen.
    [ Michael  Nov 28, 2016 ]
    A
    Yes. The camera is wired to the back up lights and when the camera is active, it sends a signal to the radio unit.
    [ Robert  Nov 28, 2016 ]
    A
    Yes it is. You just need to make sure you make the right connections.
    [ Sanjeev  Nov 28, 2016 ]

    Th manuals all indicate it should.
    [ Eric  Nov 28, 2016 ]
