Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It is a good radio when it works. Always had a bug where it would randomly not turn on sometimes until you cycle the key a time or two. I have updated the firmware and still didn't fix. Now it has gotten to the point where it won't come on at all sometimes or turns on and off constantly. Checked all wiring and power is good while this goes on so definitely in the radio itself. Worse in colder weather. Bluetooth is buggy at times. I like the Apple Car Play and want another radio with that feature. Sadly it may be time to find another brand. This is my 3rd Pioneer radio since 2018 and they just don't last. Pioneer used to be good stuff.

Rudy from Novi on 1/14/2021

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

Received this as a gift from my fiancé and couldn't be happier! It took a minute to figure out the set up, get the Weblink app to connect and work properly... but once it did... kaboom! What an amazing upgrade to my Jeep! With the over sized tires we have and a full sized spare, being able to see our trailer load and/or what's behind us when backing up...adding the rear view camera was awesome. Plus, you can turn it on at any time. Which makes trailering... so much less stressful. A few things to point out: You don't need the "purple" wire tap if you purchase the wire harness from Crutchfield and the Maestro Rr. The HU will get the reverse trigger through the OBD2/Can Bus etc. Wrangler Owners: I used a cheap back up camera that had the spare tire mount and it works... flawlessly. If you have an early Wrangler JK(U), you'll need to get some cutting wheels for your dremmel and cut some tabs off. Took me like... 3minutes in total. If you have a tire carrier that is mounted to the bumper instead of the swing gate, you'll need a length of RCA cable and a barrel connector to get the extra couple feet you'll need. A piece of 1/2 pvc pipe works great for threading wires up and down the inside of the dash. HUGE shout out to the Tech Support team at Crutchfield... YOU ROCK. Thanks! Everything is now working perfectly and I couldn't be happier.

Great radio at a decent price

Crutchfield customer from Eureka, CA on 1/13/2021

2005 Toyota Camry

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

My 17 year old daughter got a new-to-her 2005 Camry and wanted to upgrade the factory radio. After researching all the major radio manufacturer's lines, she settled on the Pioneer DMH1500NEX as it is supposed to sync/work well with apple iphones. We got the METRA wiring harness adapter, the METRA trim kit, the steering wheel controls module (PAC SWI-CP2) so that the controls on the steering wheel would work, a USB jack for plugging in the iphone, and a backup camera (BOYO VTL422CLS). Her research concluded that connecting the iphone with the USB cable gives more control than connecting via bluetooth. She first soldered the wiring harness on the work bench and then she went to work installing the radio. Crutchfield provided pictures showing where to pry the dash board apart. Because this radio can play video and we are hooking up a backup camera, she needed to tie into the emergency brake lamp and the backup light lamp. Crutchfield tech staff (who appear to be US based) were able to provide diagrams of where to make these extra connections at. The instructions for the backup camera were "lacking", but tech support came to the rescue. This customer service alone is worth buying everything through Crutchfield; especially for new radios that require these "extra" connections. The install went smoothly. I highly recommended the radio, accessories and Crutchfield. The only CON is that the radio plays the "C"rap music that my daughter seems to enjoy listening to.

Pros: good sound quality using factory speakers controls are intuitive

Cons:

Hands down better than the Alpine ILX

Crutchfield customer from Ann Arbor, MI on 1/11/2021

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

Returned the Alpine ILX and got Pioneer DMH 1500NEX. Definitely a good move. For the same price, the Pioneer is a better radio. Better sound. Better Equalizer. And unlike Alpine, Pioneer has customizable screen appearance ! You can even upload your own wallpaper. It also presets multiple AM/FM stations automatedly which I find a great feature. Even more; while Alpine could not find any AM stations, it was not a problem for Pioneer to find them and program the best ones. Very happy with this purchase. Again, kudos to Crutchfield support !

Pros: Customizable screen and wall paper. Presets multiple FM/AM stations. Great Equalizer. Better amplifier than the Alpine ILX. Steering wheel (Porsche Cayenne ) remote works. Backup camera works as well. Can turn on camera even while driving forward.

Cons: Bigger box than the Alpine ILX, thus will take more space.

So far so good

Brian James from DALLAS, TX on 1/11/2021

2018 Honda Civic Sport

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

This sounds miles better than the "color audio" crap that came in my 2018 Civic Sport hatch 6MT, even with stock speakers. That and Spotify control over Bluetooth mean I got my money's worth. Android Auto is awesome, if a little buggy on the phone side (Google's fault, not Pioneer). The resistive screen is just fine for me, and it's plenty responsive for a car stereo. You shouldn't be messing with it the whole time you're driving. I'm told included mic sounds great from the factory location where I put it. Pandora, Sirius XM, AM/FM, USB, AUX, and Video playback don't interest me all that much, nor does the WebLink feature. I'm happy to have a real EQ though, and the backup camera works as seamlessly as factory. I never trust the overlay lines, so I'm not disappointed that they don't appear automatically.

Pros: Great value straightforward install Gets to the music quickly Sounds good Mic is clear

Cons: Resistive screen Parking brake nag for WebLink (on-off-on) No speed/volume control Fixed hi/lo brightness settings

Headset unit works very well, this is actually the second pioneer unit I purchased from Crutchfield. I'm about to get a third for my other vehicle since I drive three older style cars but plan to install pioneer Apple car play screens in them all. I love Crutchfield not only because of their amazing selection of products but their customer service is amazing too. My last head unit arrived with a missing part from the dash kit, and Devin in tech customer support had it handled for me immediately and sent me a few different replacement parts just in case I needed them. Thank you Devin and Crutchfield....I will work with you guys and refer you to all my friends and family forever!

this is a great unit! Easy to install, works great, sounds great. I don't find myself wishing it had more or different functionality (like I do with other entry level items).Apple CarPlay works great and the touchscreen is responsive. I would definitely suggest this to others

Pros: Works great, touchscreen is responsive, easy installation

Cons: I wish the speaker wires were a heavier gauge. That said, it does have RCA outputs to connect to an amp so, it's not a huge factor.

Perfect fit and function

Sean from RENO, NV on 1/4/2021

2008 Toyota Yaris

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

This does everything I expected it to do according to the description. The only time I have to plug in my phone is when I want to use the navigation, which for a commuter vehicle isn't often. But, all my audio apps work through the Bluetooth. Still getting used to scrolling around on the screen, seems to be plastic rather than glass. (I'm going to be really embarrassed if someone tells me there's a plastic film on it, because I don't see any way to peel it off) The instructions provided were perfect and lined up with the instructions included with the head unit. The manual downloaded from Pioneer's website was also very helpful. The adapting harness and the spacer kit worked like a charm in my Toyota Yaris. I even found that my dash had a knock out at the base next to the 12v plug and that's where I put a short USB extension from the head unit to the outside world.

Pros: Perfect fit with added spacers and wire harness. Does exactly what the description says.

Cons: Screen is plastic, not glass.

So far so good.... not a stereo tech person so I am learning what all this unit can and cant do.... however so far is absolutely impressive for the money, if I did it again I would have opted for the piece that allows you to monitor your vehicles sensors, and I would have gotten the cd/dvd deck...... thats truely the only complaint but its also less then two weeks old also

Pros: Android auto Easy install

Cons: Only real con is I didn't know about a couple very cool features....

I got this unit to replace my factory navigation unit in my 2012 Ram. With the required adapters, I was able to keep my steering wheel controls, uconnect, and backup camera. This unit also gave me the ability to add an additional camera input, so I have a camera on the back of my camper trailer that I can pull up and view at anytime while driving down the road. This unit has an OBD interface as well, so you can monitor different sensors on your engine while moving down the road. One of my favorite features is the ability to set volume offsets for different sources. So you don't have drastic differences in volume between SiriusXM, Spotify, FM Radio, etc.

Pros: CarPlay, Factory system integration (with required additional modules and adapters).

Cons: None that I've found yet.

Installed the unit and the rca jack for the rear camera is lose and doesn't work unless you wiggle the wire on the rca cable and then you get a hit and miss picture. I have always installed pioneer unit in my cars/trucks and this is the first new unit that arrived defective. Being so close to the holidays , Crutchfield has none in stock to replace the unit but as always , Crutchfield went out of their way to make this right. It just stinks that I have to wait for their stock to be resupplied. Time to see about Alpine or Kenwood units moving forward.

Great product

The Pioneer DMH-1500NEX was a breeze to install and works great. The screen is crisp and very responsive. The supplied instructions were easy to follow and made the whole installation easy. I also purchased and used the Posi-Twist connectors for this install and they worked great.

Pros: Easy to install. Great screen, which is very responsive. Plenty of accessory connections.

Cons:

Installation was a breeze with Crutchfields instructions and calls to them were answered very quickly. The unit performs well, but the UI is not as intuitive as one would expect from a major manufacturer. Installed in my son's car and overall very happy with it.

Pros: Easy install

Cons: Interface not as intuitive

Great Upgrade; Two Minor Nitpicks

Dan from Worthington on 11/21/2020

2011 Honda CRV EX

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

I've had this unit installed into my 2011 Honda CRV for a couple of months now, and for the money it delivers everything I was wanting in upgrading my old factory unit: Apple CarPlay, adding a backup camera, and multi-phone Bluetooth connectivity for both our phones. On top of that, once I tweaked the audio settings, I was able to get a MUCH better sound out of my factory speakers/subwoofer than I ever got from the factory radio. For all of those reasons, this was a great purchase, I'm tremendously happy with it. I have 2 (minor) gripes with this radio unit: 1. It takes FOREVER to load up. Start the car with my iPhone already plugged into the USB and it still takes 15-20 seconds for the unit to boot up and recognize my phone for CarPlay. I've tried multiple cables, and it's always the same. 1/3 of the time I get a message saying it's having trouble connecting to CarPlay (it always connects; it just takes awhile). 2. When listening to terrestrial radio, the silly "radio mode" icon literally takes up half of the screen real estate. A song comes on, and it takes three scrolls through to see the artist and title because that information is crammed off to the left side and a 2.5" square box with a radio dial on it--that serves no purpose at all--fills the entire right side of the screen. I have tried to find the setting to turn this off, to no avail. Again, the radio functions just fine, but I find this "feature" to be annoying.

Pros: improved sound from factory; CarPlay works amazingly well

Cons: Takes FOREVER to start up; can't customize radio display/poor screen real estate management

Made an old Mazda Miata feel brand new

Joe from PORT WENTWORTH, GA on 11/20/2020

2006 Toyota Sienna

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

I have been driving my 2006 Miata for 14 years, and I plan to drive it for many more. Once my wife got a new car (which seemed like a rocket ship) I had car envy. Actually, Info-tainment system envy. I wanted a touchscreen, bluetooth-enabled, Android-Auto radio. But why spend 25K or more to buy a new car, when you can just buy a new radio? This Pioneer had the best reviews and was not super expensive. It has great features. The best is the Bluetooth, which enables me to play Youtube (audio) or Pandora or SiriusXM or MP3s, all from my cell phone. PLUS, voice enabled dialing, and having a phone call thru my car stereo! (my wife has Sirius in her car, and so I can use the app on my phone and it costs nothing extra!) The sound is better than the original radio. The volume is louder too. The only thing missing is a CD player. Plus I can use Google maps in addition to (or instead of) my Garmin, which I still use and like. Crutchfield (plus youtube videos) made what would have been a very difficult installation relatively painless. When I got stuck, a call to Crutchfield helped. Also, running the microphone to my dashboard (between the wheel and speedometer) makes voice calls clear. I recommend this radio, and I recommend Crutchfield. For about 350 bucks, I have a NEW CAR!!

Pros: Great features, good sound, bluetooth, voice-enabled calling

Cons: None that I can see

Worked great for about a month and then the USB completely went out. I got another one hoping it would work fine but it happened yet again. You'll lose Apple CarPlay and the YouTube option.

Crutchfield customer from CHILLICOTHE, IL on 11/14/2020

2014 Kia Forte

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

This Head Unit has great features and options for customization. I needed something for my 2016 Kia Forte Koup as I was having trouble with connecting with my phone. With CarPlay on my iPhone connection is a breeze! The advisor that I talked to when I was ordering advised me to order a part in order to "retain" my usb function, but that part didn't even fit on my Head Unit! Also, I do have a backup camera on my car and after a month of trying and contacting customer support I was never able to get it online. I even tried to send a wire from the Head Unit all the way to the backup camera and it still didn't work. That would've been nice to have, but I guess it is what it is. The touchpad on this Head Unit is fast and I never have any latency upon pressing buttons. My only gripe is that you're unable to adjust the brightness of the radio. Overall I give this Head Unit a 4/5 mostly due to it not really retaining some functions with my car.

Pros: Snappy Touchpad Reliable CarPlay functioning

Cons: Unable to adjust screen brightness

The Pioneer DMH-1500NEX has so far been an awesome radio. I only installed it about a week ago and already it performs much more smoothly than the previous Pioneer radio that I had. Bluetooth connectivity is flawless and quick to connect. The interface is clean and easy to navigate without needing to spend precious seconds looking at it and it has all the expected functions that one would expect from a stereo today. Thumbs up~

Pros: Quick Bluetooth connect, supports all the expected functions.

Cons: None so far.

Great stereo, easy to install in 2015 corolla.

Crutchfield customer from Spring, TX on 10/25/2020

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

The stereo installed easily in my 2015 Corolla. The dash kit that came with it took a little adjusting (positioning the side rails attached to the radio so that it would sit flush w/ the surrounding trim), but fit perfectly in the end and looks like it was meant to be there. The stereo sounds good (better than previous one). Used the crutch field wiring harness (makes this soo much easier), and the crux 61N wiring interface to keep the steering wheel controls). That all works as expected. The only downside: pioneer's navigation menu is a bit complicated / unintuitive. However, we just use car play all the time, so, this is a non-issue for me.

Pros: Easy to install Sounds good Works w/ steering wheel controls Works w/ existing rear camera.

Cons: Pioneer menus are complicated.

I'm only giving this a 2 star because I was told it would fit in my ram 1500 quad cab classic with slight modifications. After I pulled out my factory radio and did some measuring and looking I realized that the alpine ilx-w650 shallow mount would fit perfectly with no modifications. Crutchfield exchanged it with no hesitation and sent me the ilx-w650. Just as I thought the ilx-w650 fit like a glove with no modifications at all.

Pros: None

Wow I cannot say enough about this head unit! I went back and forth between a Kenwood and this unit. After chatting with Dutch and Sam from Crutchfield I decided on this one. Those guys were a tremendous resource from Crutchfield and can't thank them enough. I highly recommend buying the wiring service Crutchfield offers, it saves you such a headache. I removed the old factory system and plugged this one in....Bam! Apple car play fired right up and everything worked flawlessly. From start to finish Crutchfield was so helpful! Highly recommend them and this head unit.

I really like this Pioneer head unit. In other cars, I've had a Clarion nav head unit (loved it!) and some low-end major brand touch screen units (frustratingly sluggish). This Pioneer unit seems just as snappy as my Clarion unit. CarPlay / Android Auto is a great way to get nav functionality without paying for built-in nav. The interface seems intuitive, and it sounds great. Most menu items are where you would expect them to be. Android Auto works quite nicely. I've used Google Maps, Waze, Pandora, Amazon Music, and (non-AA) SiriusXM. Waze sometimes complains about needing to be setup correctly on my phone, but other than that, all is well. This unit runs circles around units that were in the $200 range 3 years ago. If you're comfortable using CarPlay or Android Auto for your maps, buy this unit instead of spending hundreds more for built-in nav.

Pros: Android Auto / Apple CarPlay Waze, Google Maps Pandora SiriusXM

Cons: No built-in nav, but with AA and CarPlay, that's not a problem in most areas where my car will be.

2007 Toyota Camry Solara

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

I finally got around to installing this. I bought it about 10 months ago but with all other stuff happening this took a side seat. I installed this in my 2007 Toyota Solara convertible. This stereo has everything I could ask for. I read all the reviews here on Crutchfield prior to buying and it seems like a lot of people really enjoy it. I especially like the Pandora app, and how connects to my android phone and I can see all the content on the screen. Backup camera is nice as well and it's nice I can switch it and keep it displayed while driving if I want. My steering wheel controls work and the aux input in my console also works perfectly with this stereo. I added a USB connector in the center console to add the phone when I do carplay or android auto. Pros: *Android auto and Apple carplay work perfectly fine *Pandora and Spotify Apps are really sweet *Made the stock speakers sound much nicer than the stock radio I had. Cons: *The color selection/Themes could be more. I wish you could customize the colors and different items like in past model Pioneer headunits I've owned. *The menu system is a tad clunky. When you switch between the home and the av menu it can get confusing at times why certain features ONLY work on said screen. I will note that I am using a different dash kit. The supplied Scosche was not very good in my opinion. How I have it installed looks pretty OEM I think.

Pros: Android Auto. Apple Carplay. Pandora App. Spotify App. Backup Camera setting to leave running Pretty fast boot up time.

Cons: Wish there were more colors/themes to choose from. The menu system can get a tad clunky depending on how you are navigating and what you want to access.

Good performance in a 2009 Camry

ipct1120 from Mass on 10/8/2020

2009 Toyota Camry

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

I needed to add a back-up camera to my 2009 Toyota Camry - wife's orders. Eddy from Crutchfield suggested getting the Pioneer DMH-1500NEX along with BoyoVTL17LTJ license plate camera. Removing the existing radio and replacing it with the Pioneer was a pretty straightforward process. Connecting the wires from the radio to the harness supplied by Crutchfield was again easy. Just match the colors. I had a soldering iron, so joining them in a permanent fashion wasn't a problem. Snaking the backup camera wire from the trunk to the radio required some finesse, and was probably the most time consuming aspect of the installation. The FM reception was initially very poor. A call to Crutchfield fixed that. I needed to connect the two blue wires together. After 3 weeks of use, I would give good marks to Apple Car Play, iPod or USB music play, Bluetooth connectivity, the FM radio. I even added an Aux input with the 3.5mm phone jack, for older devices. The boot-up time of the radio is long, but is not an issue when backing up. The back-up camera view is visible immediately. The only function which is not to my satisfaction is the AM reception, but given that I hardly listen to AM, this is not an issue. I have not tested the extra outputs for additional speakers, sub woofers etc. The user interface is not very intuitive. One has to get used to it. Overall, the performance of the Pioneer plus the Crutchfield support - a solid A.

Pros: Apple Airplay FM reception Rear Camera View iPod control with Lightning cable Very straightforward installation Bluetooth phone operation

Cons: AM reception slightly weak Relatively long boot-up up time although back-up camera view shows up immediately.

I bought this for my son's Corolla so he can have navigation in his car because he will be traveling for school and work in unfamiliar areas. Also gives him handsfree calling. For the price of this unit, it is amazing! I even bought the "scratch and dent" unit and there was not a scratch on it! It also sounds better than the factory system.

Pros: Everything about this unit is good. It just works!

Overall a solid unit. Primarily is used for Apple CarPlay. Integrates with my factory controls with the proper interface. Sound control is great even with what I thought was crappy factory speakers. User interface takes some learning to get right. Take the time to customize it and you will make it better

Pros: Price Features

Cons: User interface takes time to figure out Wish the instructions were a bit clearer on how to use the functions deep into the system.

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

This stereo has everything you need, Apple Car Play and Bluetooth. The only issue I had sometimes was using google maps in Apple Car Play. The navigation was off a bit but that can be due to my phone and not the unit itself. Sound setting exceeded my expectations, in which there's an option labeled as "super bass" that goes hand in hand with a setting labeled as "loudness." For this price, this stereo unit is probably the best out there for the feature it provides. Furthermore to enable Bluetooth on this unit, just ground the green "brake wire" to any bare metal.

Pros: Sound quality, sound configuration, apple car play, quick set up.

Cons: Navigation issues, dim during the day

Installed it on my 2005 Tacoma and LOVE IT! Only thing it lacks is a mute button in case you have to quickly silence it. But I guess I'll eventually get used to the volume control and will be able to quickly lower the volume. Screen is bright and visible under all conditions. Customization is great. Power and sound are excellent. I have an old Infinity Basslink 10" sub connected to it and it rocks. Hooked up a backup camera and works as advertised.

Great head unit for me, syncs to my iPhone, Apple Car play is a nice feature. I have a lower cost Pioneer without Car Play in another vehicle, and the speed from the touch screen on this is much faster. I have no experience with the capacitive touch screens so I can't compare, but looking back on the high end single dins from 20 years ago, this thing is amazing. I've probably installed 20+ head units over the years, and this is probably my favorite so far. Not an audiophile, just looking for some modern conveniences on an older car.

Nice Features and Great Sound

Crutchfield customer from San Jose, CA on 9/24/2020

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

This Pioneer was a replacement for a Sony XAV-AX1000 that I original bought from Crutchfield. I returned the Sony due to a defect with the screen. I also was disappointed in the lack of features and how some of the features didn't quite make sense on the Sony. So I ordered and installed the Pioneer. What a difference! This is a feature packed, great sounding unit that I totally recommend. The command hierarchy makes sense and it seems that the engineers had the user in mind. Like for instance, when an Apple Car Play map is up on the screen and you have Sirius on, it would be nice to be able to access the Sirius information without exiting the Car Play screen. Pioneer thought of this and by pressing a button, a small screen pops up from the bottom with Sirius radio controls and information. The Sony engineers did not think about this evidently and didn't include a feature like this. I didn't realize how many features the Sony didn't have until I got the Pioneer unit. As an added bonus, the Pioneer sounds fantastic. Much better than the Sony, or any of the car stereos in my other cars. I especially like the thump you can get at a lower volume. I do wish I was able to cycle through all my presets from the steering wheel control without having to touch the screen to change bands but that's not a biggie. Good job Pioneer!

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

After about 2 years I'm switching from an AVH-1440NEX. After two years and multiple times being pulled out of the dash to add amps or other gadgets like brake bypass, adjusting and adding here and there, and lots of use, my AVH-1440NEX now has an amp error and when booting up started doing weird things like volume down on its own then it switches radio profiles once(Radio 1, 2, 3 etc). With the Crutchfield Connect it's pretty quick. The DMH-1500 does not play DVD's, but I can't remember the last time I popped a DVD or CD in for that matter. It's all USB. The screen is bigger. Most of the features are the same except minor differences like the visual enhancements. I love the range of settings packed in these Pioneer head units. The 13-band EQ is one of them. Set with pink noise, my Hertz front components and CT Strato 6x9's sound perfect! I prefer to set the EQ down (below 0db). The crossovers are very precise, though it would be even nicer to have more than 13 bands... no more guessing where the amps are crossed over at and no need to spend extra on a crossover calibrator I'll only use once( I set my max volume and amp gains with an oscillator). The 4-way fader is nice, but the Sound Level adjustment really helps fine-tuning, and I prefer my front left +1. I already added my 4 channel Alpine MRV-F300 when I had the 1440, so I know I won't have to open the dash anymore. Overall, this is a solid head unit. I like the slightly bigger screen, settings, and

Pros: 3 sets of 4v pre-outs, 3-way crossovers, 5-way level adjustment, fader, vivid big screen, control buttons at the bottom instead of the left side like the 1440NEX, and the best... a 13-band equalizer

Cons: The 1440NEX went 2 years before it started bugging out... I hope not having to pull the head unit and splice anything else that I have no problems from this head unit

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed this unit in a 2011 Jetta Sportwagon TDI. Installation was a breeze. The instructions and help from Crutchfield was great. The kit integrated my steering wheel controls and the mount is really solid. I really like how Android Auto integrates with this unit, overall it is much more functional than the original bluetooth connection with the stock head-unit. I love having maps, music and news right at my fingertips. The call sound is also very good. I mounted the microphone on the top of my steering wheel, and people can't tell I'm in the car, it's very clear. I also hooked up a sub and rear view camera that I already owned. Both integrated well with this unit. I only have one (very minor) complaint. I wish the screen was a bit more customizable, the theme and color choices are fairly basic. I'd love options to change up the background a little better so it looks a bit more stock.

Pros: Price, Android Auto, Call sound,

Cons: could be a little more customizable.

Other reviews are not wrong and I should have listened -- cannot see screen in daylight. Interface is slow, touch screen is slow to respond to touch.

VITO from Mount Vernon, NY on 9/19/2020

2010 Toyota Corolla

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

Looks great. Works great. 100% a sound improvement with the stock Toyota Corolla speakers. Backup camera is super clear high resolution on the display. The reason for not giving it 5 Stars is due to two reasons: Reason 1: the iphone car play feature only works when your device is plugged into the supplied USB cable. At first i did not install this cable because of the Bluetooth capabilities. Once I realized that CarPlay would only work while plugged in thru this cable, it works well and is nice to use, but plugging in the phone and using the cable is not ideal. Also I should add, that while streaming spotify, or youtube, the video does not display on the screen, only the photo icon of the song/podcast etc, but not the actual video. Reason 2: For whatever reason when i use Waze for GPS, the screen dims out and becomes hard to view while driving. Its almost like its on night mode. I cannot figure out how to adjust the brightness. I've tried adjusting the brightness on my iPhone but that does not transfer onto the Pioneer display I still give the unit 4 star review and in the one week using it, am very pleased and would recommend. I have had multiple Pioneer head units and Pioneer is my main go to Car Audio Receiver.

Pros: High Resolution Great Sound User Friendly Big Touch Screen

Cons: CarPlay only works with USB cord not wirelessly

I decided to connect a USB connector from the radio to my dashboard. The connector replaced the cigarette lighter hardware. I'm glad I chose to go this route as it looks great and works fine. I wired in a backup camera. By far, this was the most time-consuming part of the job, which was no surprise, really. I mis-read the Pioneer's installation instructions and inadvertently plugged in the camera to one of the yellow RCA Female connector, rather than the correct connector`, which is brown. That's what threw me, as anyone who remembers connecting a VCR with analog cables would recognize the yellow connector as the right one for the video signal. Alas, if I just carefully read the instructions, I would've saved myself some frustration. Not Pioneer's fault of course, that I hurriedly read the diagram the first time. Lesson learned! A shout-out to Crutchfield Tech Support. I hit a problem with the FM radio receiption initially. I called support and my tech immediately suggested I check a certain harness connection, for FM antenna power. He was right on; fixing this connection corrected my issue - again, an issue that was solely my fault. Thank you, Crutchfield!

Pros: Great feature set Decent screen resolution Sounds terrific with factory speakers Plenty of power Physical buttons work super Great call quality, on both sides Apple Care Play works flawlessly

Cons: No complaints or reservations

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The Pioneer DMH-1500NEX is wonderful. The screen is vivid and easy to read in sunlight. Touch screen works very well, not too sensitive, just right. The CarPlay works well, bluetooth, handsfree, navigation through your favorite phone app all work with not glitches, no lags, no issues. Siri works well. Sound quality is excellent! Volume is easily accessible. The equalizer works very well but when you adjust a frequency range there is a blip of silence when it makes the adjustment. The FM sensitivity is only mediocre but unless you live and travel in rural areas a lot, it is okay. My installation in a 2009 Jeep Wrangler went exceptionally well but keep in mind that you will have to remove the steel dash bracket in the dash for this head to fit. The instructions tell you this or to cut it. No big deal. My Jeep is fairly plain and did not have steering wheel controls but that's a wiring thing. Pioneer did an excellent job designing this unit and Crutchfield does a great job with support before and after the sale! I am delighted with the purchase and performance of this radio. Don't forget to get a USB dash mount connector if you want to make it look like factory. I simply replaced my cigarette lighter socket.

Pros: Sound quality, glitch free software, great LCD screen

Cons: Blip in sound when adjusting the equalizer

Installation was easier than expected with custom cable from Crutchfield on 2006 Mustang GT. The only time item that required more though was the green wire for the handbrake. It wasn't clear what it's purpose was for (some sort of safety feature so you can't watch videos as an example). Other than that works fine and much better than prior radio

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

Everything works the way it should. Most difficult part was dash modification necessary to make it fit. Nothing to do with the receiver, just the model (2003 Dodge 2500 Quad Cab diesel). Just a bit of plastic to cut to make it fit. Also had to remove the original dash fascia for the stereo, in order to install the Metra Dash kit. Not difficult, but the original dash fascia is plastic welded at the factory and had to be drilled out before installing the Metra kit. Metra kit was straight forward and looks clean. Can't say enough about Crutchfield support. I made a mistake in ordering and thought I had the model with the factory amp (Make sure to actually check to see if there are speakers installed under the speaker grills if you have this truck). When I went to install, I found I had no amp, and Metra wiring harness would not work. Crutchfield sent me another Metra harness with a set of wire connectors, and I received it the next business day. Thanks again Crutchfield.

2015 Subaru Forester

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have a 2015 Subaru Forester and this isn't exactly the radio I would choose again if I had to do this purchase over again. However, there's plenty to like for the price. The sound quality with stock speakers made a WORLD of difference. It replaces Subaru's lousy stock deck. One of the biggest issues I had was that the steering wheel control DIPS did not interface with the call features, even after two calls with Crutchfield. However, I was able to make it work with the volume and channel select controls on the steering wheel. In addition, the recommended USB extender that gives you power to your center console in this vehicle allows the phone to charge but won't interact with Android Auto because supposedly the radio doesn't have enough power output from that area. The other complaint I had about this system was the time it took to learn how to interact with it. The interface is a bit confusing and not very intuitive. After a good, long drive, I was able to pick it up, but it's still not my favorite. Lastly, I really dislike the Weblink Host App that the system wants you to download. Not even sure why this is the default. The major selling point is the cost.

Pros: Sound quality, fast interaction with Android Auto, price

Cons: Low power output, confusing interface

Great bang for a great price. This radio had everything I was looking for. Sirius XM station logos with album art when available. I can change source without it exiting android auto. Being able to adjust screen colors is a nice feature as well. Plenty of inputs and outputs. Combined with maestro idea link I was able to keep most of my steering wheel control. Android works just as you would expect it to. Also I can see my tire pressure and other gouges on the radio screen even a 0-60 timer. Weblink is awesome, watching YouTube or downloaded videos from my phone on the screen is cool. Strongly advise getting the parking break bypass.

Pros: Customizable, pairs well with i-data link, lots of features

Cons: screen is a little outdated not most responsive touch screen. No HD radio, next unit up has it but was $100 more and out or stock.

2009 Ford Mustang

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

The DMH-1500NEX is a great improvement over factory in form and function. No difference in sound is noticed to this point but there are tons of adjustments that can be made with EQ etc.. so in time I'm sure I will get the sound to be better than stock. As long as I don't have worse sound over stock I am more than happy. If equipped with Shaker 500 or 1000 you will need to go into options to turn on subwoofer as stock comes turned off. The ability to customize the wallpaper with your own image makes for a nice touch and completes the custom install. Android Auto works great, no issues so far. I would like to see Pioneer include a mountable USB cord to complete the installation but I will figure that out in time. Its been 25 years since I installed a new head unit so things have changed but the basics are still there, Great experience. As times goes on I will be more familiar with all options and can provide a more thorough review but so far I am more than pleased with my purchase. Thanks Crutchfield

Pros: Adds new form and function that was not there from factory like Android Auto, Bluetooth and gauge options.

Cons: USB cord needs a mountable option

Great head unit. Easy to install and I was able to retain all of my 2015 Forester's features, including mirroring the backup camera to the Pioneer screen. The audio on my factory speakers sounds 10x better than the original Clarion factory head unit.

Pros: Easy install with the help of the instructions from Crutchfield.

Cons: A few tiny glitches, but that could be with the Maestro programming. The menu of the Pioneer can be odd.

I love it just as much maybe better than my factory radio I had in my 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee that had the UCONNECT SYSTEM Has extra features that my factory radio didn't

Pros: Radio shows Speedometer tire pressure and fuel level on the screen also battery voltage and a couple other features that the factory Didn't

Cons: User manual is kind of thick

I have had two other head units in my 2007 Honda Civic before the Pioneer, and this is by far my favorite one. The reaction time is quick, the picture is very clear, and it enhanced the sound coming from my speakers. Great stereo for an AMAZING price, I love it so much.
