Always had good luck with Pioneer products and this one keeps the streak alive. User friendly and easy to set up. Screen is very clear and the touch is very responsive. Great product

Pros: Ease of use Screen quality Touch quality

Cons: Would be nice if the screen were larger like some of the other models, but I like having some actual buttons to press

Pioneer Prowess

WIlliam from Mooresville, NC on 8/22/2020

2009 Hyundai Sonata

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

Excellent features. I coupled it with a Maestro iDataLink steering wheel function unit and a SiriusXM tuner (which I mounted on my dash and it has fantastic reception there). I hard wired the parking brake for DVD play when engaged. But outside of being a phenomenal upgrade I want to say Crutchfield tech support was there for me in every step of installation. They emailed me actual photos of the backside of my fuse box when wiring to the parking brake, wiring diagrams for the Maestro; they were amazing help. It is a great unit that serves me well and I could not be more happy with the techs at Crutchfield. Pioneer is a name I can trust...as is Crutchfield. It wound up being a win/win situation.

Pros: Exceeded expectations.

Cons: None I can think of.

Port St Lucie

Ed from Port St Lucie on 8/21/2020

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

The sound it puts out is excellent with Sirius XM and CD's. The one major drawback is that it is very hard to see during the daylight, which may cause distraction when trying to change channels or operation since it has Apple Carplay. Living in Florida with mostly very bright days makes it quite difficult. I am baffled why Pioneer didn't consider how the glare affects the driver's ability to see the screen, as the units that come standard in many new vehicles.

Pros: The sound.

Cons: The ability to operate the screen in daylight due to the glare.

Crutchfield customer from Durango, CO on 8/17/2020

2004 Honda Element

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

This item does everything we needed from android and apple car compatibility , cds/dvd's, and works great with our old ipod too, all for a very reasonable price when compared to other items from pioneer and their competitors. Stoked on this purchase! Our family will get a ton of use with this item, and we didn't break the bank.

Pros: We can watch movies in out tiny rv (honda element) while car camping the southwest. A HUGE deal, with kids when weather moves into our area. We can also use apple maps, AND third party maps like google and Waze... which can sometimes help with the miles of dirt roads we end up on out in the rural areas we like to travel to. Connected easily to our vehicles amps for the factory speakers and subwoofer and the sound os better than before.

Cons: Dvd does not play without parking brake engaged but that's actually a safety issue, so its more of a mention than a CON

Chose it for the features

William from Manchester, TN on 8/16/2020

2012 Nissan Altima

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

I chose this unit for the features, my wife wanted a CD player, I wanted a backup camera, and we definitely wanted Apple Car Play compatible. Installation was pretty easy except for steering wheel controls, which took a little experimenting on her 2012 Altima.

Pros: Apple Car Play and Backup Camera compatible, plus a CD player

Cons: The instruction manual could be better, I'm in my mid 60's and haven't had a newer stereo in awhile.

Okay but background noise

Crutchfield customer from Anacortes, WA on 8/11/2020

1998 Lexus ES300

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

It's a nice unit and I'll leave it in but if I knew now how it would be I would not have bought it. For one it makes background noise. It hums. At first it made even more noise so I installed an antenna noise filter. Then discovered when it ground more noise entered so I had to use rubber grommets to isolate it from car frame. Tried filters in power leads. This might be the fault of the car but still. Second the unit doesn't drive existing CD player. I knew that up front but now I miss that capability. Just stupid that they can't provide that function in new radios. It did connect to my phone easily and all the phone functions work which is very cool and the reason I'll leave it in. Crutchfield support was only marginally helpful with fixing the noise. But their wire bundle and install kit was marvelous.

Pros: iPhone connection and functions work great.

Cons: Background noise and doesn't drive existing CD player.

Big improvement from factory

edward from Spring Hill, FL on 8/5/2020

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

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

Just installed this stereo with the maestro module to retain factory controls in my Cherokee the other night. Must say i have install many stereos in my day. Its been along time since the last one (18 years). Must admit I was a little intimidated. Crutchfield made this super easy to get professional results and thier tech support was awesome I think I spoke with Stan. He gave me the info I needed, answered all the questions I had and made me feel a lot more comfortable. With that said, pioneer avh 1550nex is pretty impressive. I'm still trying to figure out some of the features but so far everything is working as it should, looks like its factory and sounds amazing. The Maestro unit was easy to add to keep the the factory amplifier, speakers, controls, and even added some really cool additional features. Things like check engine light codes, customizable gauges that are not on my dash with alert options, ability to adjust gain on the factory amp, not that I will ever use them but this thing even will do track and 1/4 mile times. I am very happy with these units. Crutchfield is awesome, fast delivery, great customer service and tech support. With service like this Crutchfield will always have a customer in me. Thanks Crutchfield

Pros: Fairly simple to operate. Sounds awesome with factory amp and speakers. Amazing features, and added maestro features. Easy install.

Cons: The safety warning screen on start up. I wish pioneer would have included instructions for the features and controls.

Crutchfield customer from Winfield, IL on 7/26/2020

2006 Honda Civic LX

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

Sounds and looks great in my car (a 2007 Honda Civic LX...for now I kept the factory speakers). I didn't want to spend a lot (which you can to get wireless connectivity for carplay and/or navigation), but with this unit I just plug in my phone to the USB connection and I get apple carplay and navigation through my "maps" app. I like the CD player too (call me "old school" if you want!). Some of the screens on the AVH-1550NEX are hard to see in bright sunlight, but I am getting used to it. It was pretty easy to install (don't buy anywhere else...Crutchfield provides the best instructions and installation gear customized for your car). By the way, kudos to my advisor, Sam, who suggested the PAC USBDMA6 cable for the USB connection. It allows you to put the USB connection anywhere you want to drill a 5/8" hole (I put it in the storage bin in front the shift lever with a little glue for added stability). Sam also suggested the "posi-products" tap-it connectors for the connection to the parking brake wire...not necessary, but handy and will keep you from maybe cutting the parking brake wire. Look at the Crutchfield installation video for your car...in the case of the 2007 civic, it showed everything INCLUDING how to get to the parking brake wire. I'm mentioning that because I happened to find the video AFTER I did the install, and wished I had seen it first.

Pros: Great sound (with factory speakers). Wired (USB) connection for apple carplay works well (and charges phone at the same time). Price is reasonable for lots of features. Install went well (wiring harness has all connections except microphone, USB, antenna and parking brake wire). Crutchfield provides great instructions and gear to help the install be as easy as possible.

Cons: Some screens are a little hard to see in very bright sunlight.

A Nice Unit (the Maestro could use some extra guidance)

Crutchfield customer from Kent, WA on 3/9/2020

2014 Subaru Outback

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

We bought this to replace the stereo in my wife's 2014 Outback. The stock stereo was having electrical gremlins, and this was the 2nd time. This seemed like a good time to upgrade to a stereo with Apple Car Play. So far, we really like it. The sound is very good with the stock speakers. The interface is pretty good. There is a learning curve, and to switch between some of the functions is a little unclear. The only real "issue" we have has to do with the Maestro unit to enable steering wheel controls. The directions were not super clear, and so when you press the "up" setting button on the steering wheel, it equates to a "down" on the radio presets. This is because the stereo logic is "up" is a higher number (1-6), whereas the old stereo read 1 as the top of the list. The other issue with the Maestro, is that we cannot advance the track on the CarPlay using the steering wheel controls. Again, I think that is a set-up issue because I didn't know you had to set that as well. I need to call Crutchfield and see if I can reflash the Maestro, or if we are stuck with these settings. My laziness is because I don't want to uninstall everything to get back to the Maestro unit. All that being said, we really like the unit, and I'm considering getting one for my VW.

Pros: Clear sound Apple Car Play Relatively easy installation

Cons: A little unclear how to get some functions to work = learning curve. The dash trim piece is a little flimsy on the bottom horizontal section. Mechanically easy to install, but the wiring instructions could be more clear.

What an AMAZING stereo!

Ken from West Haven, UT on 2/7/2020

2004 Mazda RX8

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

The Pioneer AVH-1550NEX is a spectacular stereo for the price point. As an Mazda RX8 owner just make sure you READ EVERYTHING first so you don't leave things out. Like an amp turn on wire when you have a BOSE system in your car, and make sure you hookup the parking brake wire or you'll not have functionality in several areas of the stereo. But the service at Crutchfield is the best in the business, and the products they sell are really incredible. This stereo is very intuitive, easy to navigate, sync'd right up to my iphone and the ApplePlay works perfect. Really impressed with this double din deck. It sounds way better than the stock stereo I pulled out and I didn't do a thing to the existing speakers. Looking forward to doing more business in the future! Thank you Crutchfield!

Pros: Navigates easy Awesome menus Great background selections and color changes Sounds amazing! Price point amazing for what you get. DVD Player too. Can't beat that.

Cons: Bluetooth can be a little fickle. If you can't connect a phone that's already been added, just reset BT and everything is good again. Only happened once so far but no biggie really. Took 5 seconds to correct.

It's very straight forward with how to use. As well as the install. Lots of background option and tone controls. Good picture. Sometimes I feel it gets lost/confused while using it but it's a rare occasion. Typically has to do with Apple CarPlay (unplug and plug back in and everything is fine) That's why I couldn't give 5 stars though.

Pros: pretty much everything about it

Cons: Glitchy on rare occasion.

Not an easy navigation unit, the instructions suck, wish I would have chosen a different stereo.

Pros: Good sound system, clean sound, the price was right.

Cons: Not user friendly, purchased it because the Apple play, can't figure out how to switch from one app to another without going to the main menu , I know eventually it'll be fine... just not now.

The other features on the AVH1550NEX are awesome as well, added a backup camera via the dedicated port, great picture with adjustable guidelines. Great sound ,Bluetooth calls and audio. Thinking about pulling the factory nav and premium audio out of my other cars and replacing them with this unit. Again, love it! Thanks Crutchfield and Pioneer!!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was a little disappointed with the size of the screen - I wanted a 7" one and this is whatever it is (I got it as a gift). I got the idatalink module to keep my steering wheel controls and after some troubleshooting, I got those working well. Something I think most people care about is Bluetooth functionality. I had some problems (see below) but after I figured it out, the Bluetooth appears to work great. My music starts playing as soon as the stereo turns on which was something that was important to me. Crutchfield's ready harness service or whatever it's called was the major reason I bought from their site, and I tell you what, it was WORTH IT. I didn't have to wire anything. 100% plug and play. Something I didn't realize about this head unit is that it shows vehicle information like which doors are open, faults or codes the truck sends, and even shows RPMs, fuel capacity as a percentage and so forth. It's not something I was expecting but I love it. You can configure your controls to pull it up on demand, too, so when I push my "OK" button on my steering wheel, the vehicle info comes up. I love that. The user interface seems easy enough to navigate, though I think the screen is a little crowded for my taste. Other than that, I can't say I have anything to complain about. The instructions were super vague and tech support was only able to answer a couple of questions I had. I got it all figured out and I'm loving it.

Pros: Wiring service WORTH IT Responds to touch well Bluetooth functionality is on point Vehicle diagnostics and info Dims with vehicle dimmer switch Background can be customized with photo

Cons: Small end of the spectrum for screen size IMO Instructions for install vague and suck

I like the many features of this aftermarket Pioneer. I bought it for my daughter to upgrade her 2014 Corolla factory radio to give CarPlay features so she could have better navigation capabilities and a better overall user experience than the built in Toyota entune system

Pros: Great receiver for the price

Cons: Install instructions could be more straightforward. I am technical, but there are things that could be spelled out more clearly when you pay for an install kit. Crutchfield provides there instructions, the interface kit provides there and the face plate kit another set.

Finally installed this deck In my wife's car yesterday in a 2007 Corolla S. Installed the 6' USB cable to the existing auxiliary 12v charger in the center console to use apple CarPlay. I wanted one with threads on the back so I can tighten it instead of just popping it into a 3/4" hole. The mic was installed along the headliner and down the A pillar trying not do disturb the airbag. Crutchfield made the purchase easy and had everything I needed to install this unit without any problems. Wiring harness adapter and the install kit was free! The AVH-1550NEX looks amazing. Many color screen options and a few display background options. Sound is better than stock and radio reception is great. Pioneer has a reputation for making great tuners. DVD's and CD's looks and sounds great. I would highly recommend purchasing any car stereo from Crutchfield due to the customer support. I didn't have any problems but just knowing I could get the help was reassuring. YouTube is another option provided they have your vehicle. Amazon offers the same products but not this time for me. My wife likes it....Happy wife happy life!

Pros: Looks, FM reception, Apple CarPlay.

Cons: Volume control buttons and remote control useless unless you have passengers in the back seat.

2018 Toyota RAV4

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Junk. First, the screen is glossy, which makes it very difficult to see during the day, especially when wearing polarized sunglasses. OEM CarPlay headsets are nearly 100% more visible in all light conditions. It seems like it was designed to look good in a show room, but not in actual use. This is very disappointing. Second, the back-up camera at first worked perfectly, but after about two months stopped triggering when the car is placed in reverse. Now I have to manually turn on the camera when backing up, which requires more clicks when the phone is plugged in. I had the same problem with my first unit, an AVH-1440NEX, so I can only conclude that all Pioneer units would have this problem.

I really like this receiver. I did the install myself, with the help of YouTube, and found step by step directions to remove my old unit. Everything went pretty seamless, with the exception of scratching up my panel a little. I'd recommend using masking tape to protect your car but my 08' Tacoma has its battle wounds as is. What's 1 more, right? Haven't tried the DVD features yet. Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay are a great upgrade!

Pros: Apple CarPlay,

Cons: Would be nice to have a front input for USB or AUX connections

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

This radio was installed in a Ram Promaster Pleasure-Way RV along with a SiriusXM radio receiver. The installation went very well. I have retained all original vehicle electronic functions except for the microphone. Even the factory radio USB port was retained. Which is possible by using the provided USB cable along with the data transfer cable you use to program the Maestro unit. I used the microphone included with the new radio, which was installed next to the rearview mirror. Also, I was able to cut the plug connector end of the antenna wire and splice it back together to make it easier to fish through back to the dashboard. This is a really great set up. I'm very happy! Thank you!

Pros: Everything works fantastic!

My truck is a 2006 Tacoma. What can I use to describe my experience with this unit? Awesome! Phenomenal! When I heard the sound after installing the head unit, I had to double check I was still sitting in my truck because I am yet to replace the stock speakers . It was so so so good I couldn't believe it. This means that when I replace my stock speakers, my truck will feel like a concert hall. The user interface is also simple and classy. Gentle on the eye and very intuitive. Every touch responds with absolute precision. Only drawback being that apple CarPlay doesn't work in my country (Nigeria) so I can't load google maps onto the screen but then that's not a deal breaker. It connects my 2 phones seamlessly. I'm completely satisfied with my purchase and will now do the same for my Camry.

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

I have nothing against pioneer. This review is about Crutchfield. If you have a 2011 Hyundai Sonata, odds are, this radio isn't entirely compatible. You will have to buy a dash kit from somewhere else, and if you choose to bypass the factory amp, a new amplifier. If you choose to integrate the amp, you will have to find a wiring harness that Crutchfield doesn't offer. And there are many more complications.

I really enjoy this radio in my wife's car. She recently upgraded her phone and her then current stock stock Toyota radio had no Bluetooth capabilities and only aux. She recently started driving her car to work due to being promoted and no longer working at home. I surprised her with the install and I am glad I purchased it. It comes with a remote and mic that are easy to place and install. The user interface is easy to use and easy to setup. She now enjoys the commute much more due to all the accessories available and at her ready.

Pros: Add on's galore Easy use factor. Easy to setup out of the box Comes with a DVD player You can access Apple Car features when hooked in with no problem

Cons: No Volume Knob, only buttons. Layout takes a bit to get used to

Overall Great Unit (2012 F-150)

Eric R. from CRANSTON, RI on 9/8/2019

2012 Ford F-150 STX

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

I installed this unit into a 2012 F150 STX. I have had the Pioneer AVH-1550NEX for about 6 months now. The head unit overall is great and I would recommend it. I like having an actual volume buttons and the touchscreen work way better then I thought it would. (It's a resistive style, not capacitive like an iPhone). I felt that I was able to adjust the sound from my system very well with the sound control features this head unit has. The car play feature is what I primarily use 95% of the time. If you never used car play I highly recommend it! My only gripe with the unit is that it sometimes does connect right away and I'll have to unplug and replug in my phone a couple times, about two or three times I had to turn the system off and back on for it to work. This hasn't happened a lot but I feel like it shouldn't happen at all, so that's why I am rating it 4 out of 5 stars.

I bought this to replace my 2016 Crosstrek's factory radio and Subaru's garbage Starlink system. I've only had it in a few days, but having the ability to use CarPlay is amazing and drastically improves the experience of using the navigation and listening to books and music from my phone. Not to mention how much better the hands free texting experience is. The only odd thing I found is that the steering wheel controls, running through the iData system, doesn't work for skipping songs when outside of CarPlay. So if I'm adjusting the EQ settings, or balance, I can't skip songs until I go back to either the stereo's default music player, or into any of the CarPlay apps.

Pros: - Apple Carplay - Fast Responsive touch screen - Inexpensive

Cons: - Skipping tracks doesn't work outside of CarPlay or the built in Music app.

Powerful Head Unit with integrated Apple Car Play

Roger from Nashville, TN on 7/29/2019

2013 Honda Civic Hybrid

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

I have a 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid where I replaced the factory radio with the Pioneer. I ordered the ready harness which made it really easy to install. The hardest part of the installation was running the hand brake wire down to the center console to tap into the brake. You don't HAVE to do this but if you want to use the CD-MC20 auto EQ microphone or use the DVD function, then you will have to tap into the hand brake. I also ordered the steering wheel control adapter, which you also have to tap into the power in the harness for it to work. The sound out of this unit was amazing once I got the auto EQ set. Even without an amp, this unit drives my Infinity 1632ex front speakers, tweets, and Rockford Fosgate 1675 in the rear without any trouble. The screen is a little touchy when trying to scroll through the settings or lists in iTunes. The Apple Car Play works great and is one of the main reasons I bought this unit. The included mic for phone calls took some experimenting on placement but I settled with running it under the dash and up to the A-pillar. One thing I noticed is that the radio loses signals faster than the original HU.

Pros: Excellent sound and a huge load of custom settings Apple Car Play

Cons: No Aux or USB input in the front-have to run cables to the front Touch screen a bit laggy FM radio loses stations faster then OEM unit

I love having Carplay, typically use Waze or Google maps when needed and they work flawlessly. This unit has all the features I need and use and not a lot of extra features I'll never use. I added a backup camera (Crux CFD-03F) which also works great, image pops up near instantly and is very clear. A word of advice on attaching a backup camera, this unit has the backup line images built in and adjustable, I did not fully understand that and left the non-adjustable camera supplied image option in place. I now have a bit of disassembly to do to disable the camera image lines and use the superior, head unit lines.

Pros: Nice fit, nice features at a reasonable price. Crutchfield support! The prewired harness is a ++, I am fairly technical but with the added Maestro integration unit this would have been challenging to get wired up correctly.

Cons: Documentation from Pioneer is weak. There is one little cable that hooks from Maestro unit to the Pioneer that there is no documentaion that tells you it is needed. A call to Jac at Crutchfield was required to sort it out.

Pros: Apple car play, touch screen, integrates factory functions with Maestro data link.

Cons: Unit still tries connecting to factory sync system. I think that is a me error and not the radio error still figuring this Radio out. You will not be disappointed with this purchase

Outstanding double din radio. Replaced the stock H3 radio with the Pioneer AVH-1550NEX and I couldn't be more please with the quality and sound. Not only is the interface excellent but the controllability of the sound option is on par with higher end radios. As always Crutchfield is the #1 retailer for automobile stereo products. Best customer service in the business and their ease of install products like their "Readi-harness" makes DIY'ers life much much more enjoyable.

I called Crutchfield because I was not sure what I was looking for in a car stereo for my son. The sales representative Lane Helped me pick out exactly what I was looking for. Plus I was able to purchase the correct wiring harness and steering wheel control interface for my vehicle. It was also offered for a small price to have the stereo pre-wired to fit my vehicle so I literally had to just plug it in And when it came to shipping I ordered it the week before a holiday and I was told it may extend the time it will take to get to my house. I was surprised when it actually showed up two days earlier I was very impressed

Bought because of Apple Car play, and it delivered. Easy to configure for both bluetooth and car play. Installation kit was easy. Though check other reviews for the parking brake bypass circuit so you can control all the menus without figuring out how to connect into brake system. You can find them anywhere on the internet for a few dollars. Overall, very satisfied, honest!

Pros: Apple Car Play, Bluetooth with Spotify and Pandora, good looks

Cons: Still wish they made volume knobs. but the up/down volume works well enough

Superb advice and customer service

Crutchfield customer from Largo, FL on 5/12/2019

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

I have been out of the automobile audio market for decades, instead just living with the factory installed sound systems of my vehicles. Recently, the factory installed sound system on my 2007 Toyota Tacoma TRD began to have issues, first with the CD player and then with the radio. After determining that I was going to continue to operate the Tacoma, I began an Internet search for a replacement sound system. What I quickly determined was that there was an overwhelming selection of choices. One of the search options led me to Crutchfield and I was quickly greeted by an online chat opportunity with a specialist that without pressure, stepped me through a myriad of choices narrowing down the options of a new system based on what I was looking to get out of the new system. After gaining some knowledge, I compared Crutchfield prices to Amazon prices, and when asked about pricing, the chat rep was honest in stating Crutchfield are sometimes a bit higher but that Crutchfield has the technical expertise to help with future installation issues. I elected to go with Crutchfield. The installation was straight forward and, without rushing, I followed the instructions and successfully removed the old system, spliced and ran wires for the new system. To our surprise, the initial test netted no sound. A call the the Crutchfield tech support resulted in a thorough research session and a recommended RCA plug in change that corrected our error. Walla...total success.

Pros: Superb pre-purchase advice, prompt shipment, excellent technical installation troubleshooting and the Pioneer AVH1550NEX has all the features I asked for without features I did not desire.

Cons: none.

Great Upgrade!

Ronald from Ellijay, GA on 4/20/2019

2005 Toyota Corolla

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

Bought this to upgrade the OEM head unit in my step-daughter's 2005 Corolla (which had only radio and CD, and no AUX input). I also got the "free" American International TOY-K958 Dash Kit, and Metra 70-1761 Receiver Wiring Harness as part of the purchase. Install was straightforward. The TOY-K958 Dash Kit comes in three pieces, all plastic, with screws to assemble the sides to the faceplate, and additional screws to secure the head unit to the assembled kit. The plastic pieces seem pretty flimsy, but when assembled and fastened to the head unit, the resulting assembly is sufficiently robust to provide for a reasonably secure installation. The Metra 70-1761 Receiver Wiring Harness plugged into the Corolla's dash wiring perfectly. The wires from the main wiring pigtail from the Pioneer AVH-1550NEX matched the Metra harness wires' color codes exactly. The 1550 pigtail has two additional wires - one for connecting to the parking brake switch (which was more than long enough to reach the switch in the Corolla under the console), and another to connect to the backup light circuit (which wasn't nearly long enough). The microphone cord was long enough to allow routing from the unit to the left side of the dash, up the "A" pillar, and across the top of the windshield to the mirror. I do wish the Pioneer AVH-1550NEX came with either a front USB port, or a USB dash socket that would allow for a neater installation rather than a random USB extension cord

Pros: Great value. Straightforward install. Great sound with OEM speakers. Apple CarPlay helps provide for safer use of smartphone features while driving.

Cons: No front USB port (or USB Dash socket) leaves the provided USB extension cord hanging out from under the dash or console. Backup circuit wire (rear camera trigger) too short. (I didn't install a camera, but did splice in a longer section of wire to allow future use without removing the head unit from the dash).

So far, so good. I ordered this unit on Tuesday and it arrived Thursday via UPS. Before it arrived, I had removed the old radio from my car and the center console. It didn't take long to hook up the wires, and the directions from Crutchfield are good. The ones in the Pioneer book... well, they need a lesson from Crutchfield. I ran the wire for the parking brake power and USB connection under the carpet to the center console for a clean look. I ran the microphone for the phone through the driver's side A pillar, again to keep a clean look. So far, so good. I connected my work Galaxy via Bluetooth, but my personal iPhone I just used USB and Apple CarPlay (the main reason I chose this unit). The only drawbacks I have are the volume switches are buttons. In hindsight, I probably would have preferred a knob. And, there is not buttons to skip ahead or behind when listening to music. This is only an issue when using Google Maps, for instance, with Apple CarPlay. But, for the cost of the unit, the features you can hook up (I did not hook up a camera, a video screen, navigation, XM, etc.) this is a great little unit. Makes a 13 year old car that is in really good shape a bit more modern. I bought the car brand new in 2006, bought a new head unit from Crutchfield for it then. Now, 13 years later, I replaced the head unit.

Pros: Easy to install Lots of Features Sleek and Modern Looking Apple CarPlay Bluetooth to more than one device

Cons: Bluetooth to only 2 devices - I have a personal phone and a work phone and my wife has a phone. It'd be nice to hook all three up with Bluetooth.

Easy to read, configure, operate. I am not sure how to get the HD radio, maybe I need to figure out a different antenna, phone works fine unfortunately Apple seems to want you to unlock the phone when connected via USB, to ensure you want it to communicate with it but I believe this is probably with all stereo brands. Pandora via bluetooth seems to be always asking if you want to allow Pioneer to access Pandora. Navigation very good and clear (I only used Google Maps), I love that there is a navigation volume separate from the other volumes and not affected by the volume up and down for music. I have not played with the dual phones capabilities but it was one of the reasons I decided to get the Pioneer AVH unit.
