Enjoy your music

Pioneer AVH-X3600BHS

The AVH-X3600BHS features an HD Radio tuner and supports an optional satellite radio tuner.

The AVH-X3600BHS will play your music, no matter what medium you prefer. You can connect your iPod or iPhone to the rear USB input and use the receiver's controls to access your playlists, while tools like Alphabet Search and Link Search get you to the song you want quickly. Android users aren't left out in the cold. If your Android phone supports the media transfer protocol (MTP), you'll be able to browse and play back the music that's stored on your phone, no extra app required.

HD Radio

If you're a fan of streaming Internet radio, connect your iPhone to the receiver with an optional cable and take charge of your Pandora® account from the touchscreen, complete with thumbs-up and thumbs-down controls. And don't forget, you can also enjoy all your CDs, DVDs, discs full of MP3 or WMA music, or USB storage devices loaded with files.

Tune the sound

This Pioneer sports an 8-band equalizer for making your music sound perfect in your car, and you'll find an auto-equalization feature to tune your system (microphone required). Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever perks up the flat sound of compressed music by restoring high-frequency information.  If you're looking to build a killer system, three pairs of preamp outputs make it easier to connect external amplifiers

Customizable display and excellent video performance

The 6.1" LCD screen on this Pioneer can be customized with variable color choices and backgrounds. You'll also find some cool touchscreen features — Pioneer's Touch Slide technology gives you real fingertip control over many functions. Want a new EQ curve? Just draw it on the screen with your finger and you've got it. And you can browse video files through thumbnail images — just touch them to check out a sneak preview.
The AVH-X3600BHS plays DVDs in bright, clear detail when you're parked, and when you're on the road, you can entertain your passengers by sending a movie from the receiver to a rear-seat screen — they'll thank you during those long trips (check the "Details" tab for full information on cables required for video playback from iPhones). And of course you can plug in a rear-view camera to play it safe in 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.

    Touchscreen Display

    6.1" TFT LCD Touchscreen Color Display: The AVH-X3600BHS features a 6.1" TFT Active Matrix, 16:9 widescreen touchscreen display. The resolution of the display is 800 x 480 (RGB), for a total of 1,152,000 pixels. The touchscreen display allows you to control this unit and a connected component such as an iPod/iPhone, or USB mass storage class device. Menus appear on screen for making function choices, audio adjustments, and setting up the system.

    • Widescreen Modes: You can choose from the following widescreen modes when playing back video - Full (4:3 picture is enlarged in the horizontal direction only; enabling you to enjoy a 4:3 picture without any omissions), Zoom (4:3 picture is enlarged in the same proportion both vertically and horizontally; ideal for a 16:9 screen), Normal (4:3 picture is displayed as it is).
    • Picture Adjustments: You can store numerous video settings for the head unit's video source and rear-view camera; including brightness (adjusts the black intensity), contrast (adjusts contrast) color (adjusts color saturation), temperature (adjust the color temperature), and Dimmer (adjusts brightness).
    • OSD + Backgrounds: The color of the on-screen display can be set to red, amber, green, blue or white. The background can be set to one of four preset still images, two moving images, a stored JPEG image, spectrum analyzer, or turned Off.
    Note: The Pioneer AVH-X3600BHS offers English, Chinese, French, Portuguese, and Spanish text.

    Favorites: You can register the desired menu items on the AVH-X3600BHS's "Favorites" menu screen. Registering your favorite menu items allows you to quickly jump to the registered menu item by a simple touch on the favorites menu. Up to 12 menu items can be registered as a "Favorite".

    Front-Panel Control w/ Custom Illumination: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons along the left edge of the screen. The color of the button illumination can be set to red, amber, green, blue, white, or scan (constantly cycling through the color spectrum). You can also create a custom color to match your vehicle's interior lighting (112 colors to choose from).

    MIXTRAX Illumination: MIXTRAX features a club-style illumination that enhances the mood with a dynamic dance club-like lighting effect. As MIXTRAX begins, lights start pulsing to the beat of the music, adding an extra level of entertainment. You can choose among twelve patterns of lighting variations from sound pressure level or low-pass synchronization modes. The lighting effects work like a spectrum analyzer, reaching peak colors based on the intensity of the music.

    Dimmer: To prevent the display from being too bright at night, the display is automatically dimmed when the car's headlights are turned on. The automatic dimmer function only works when the orange/white illumination wire in the wiring harness is connected to the vehicle's headlight circuit.

    Parking Brake Interlock: This unit has a parking brake interlock system that prohibits viewing of video programming and operating certain controls when the vehicle is in motion. In order to watch video on the in-dash monitor, the vehicle must be stopped with the parking brake engaged. The head unit's light green wire must be connected to your vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. The head unit's touchscreen will display "Attention! Viewing of front seat video source while driving is strictly prohibited", if you try to watch a video when your vehicle is in motion.

    2-DIN Chassis: The Pioneer AVH-X3600BHS has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double-DIN"), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets. There is also an optional double-DIN sleeve (130ADTV133, sold separately) available for this unit that will allow you to Euro-mount or custom mount the Pioneer head unit in your vehicle. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    iPod/AppRadio Control

    iPod Connectivity w/ DAC Bypass: The Pioneer AVH-3600BHS supports direct connection of your 30-pin or Lightning-connector iPod/iPhone through its rear-panel USB port, RGB input, and 3.5mm jack. The AVH-3600BHS offers audio/video playback, music navigation, information display, and charging of select Apple iPod/iPhone models. It also provides a special AppRadio mode for iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5/5C/5S users which allows you to access a variety of online music, navigation, and other helpful apps. The AVH-3600BHS allows your iPod/iPhone's music library to be loaded instantly to the head unit and sound quality to be maximized through the head unit's 24-bit D/A converter (bypassing iPod/iPhone DAC), allowing for a Signal to Noise ratio up to 91dB.

    • Lightning Dock Connector: If you have an iPhone 5/5C/5S with the Lightning-connector, you can use Pioneer's CD-IV203 VGA Interface Cable Kit and the Apple Lighting-to-VGA adapter 472LT2VGA (both sold separately) to access stored music and videos, music and video apps, plus AppRadio Mode for playback of advance applications on the Pioneer AVH-3600BHS. This setup also requires your iPhone 5/5C/5S be paired via Bluetooth to the head unit. If you desire only music playback from your Lightning-connector Apple device, simply use Pioneer's Lightning-to-USB cable (130CDIU52, sold separately) or the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device to connect your iPod/iPhone to the AVH-3600BHS.
    • 30-Pin Dock Connector: If you have an iPhone 4/4S with a 30-pin dock connector, use the Pioneer CD-IU201S RGB/USB cable (130IU201S, sold separately) to enjoy playback of stored music and videos, music and video apps, plus access to AppRadio Mode for playback of advance applications on the Pioneer AVH-3600BHS. If you do not own and iPhone 4/4S, but do have another older 30-pin dock connector iPod/iPhone, use the Pioneer CD-IU201V iPod Video cable (130IU201V, sold separately) for playback of music and movies files stored on your device, as well as music apps. Simply use Pioneer's dock connector-to-USB cable (130CDIU51, sold separately) or the dock connector-to-USB cable that comes with your Apple device if you desire stored music and music app playback only.
    Note: The head unit's USB connection provides 1A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. This unit will not charge the Apple iPad. If your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.

    iPod/iPhone Control + Song/Artist Info & Album Art: The Pioneer AVH-3600BHS lets you control your iPod/iPhone from the head unit's touchscreen, your iPod/iPhone's touchscreen/clickwheel, or a downloaded app. The head unit supports song/artist information and album art.

    • Head Unit: Head Unit mode is supported by 30-pin and Lightning connector iPod/iPhones when used with one of the appropriate cables mentioned above. From the head unit's touchscreen, you can search your iPod/iPhone's audio content by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Podcast, Genre, Composer, or Audiobook; and video content by Video Playlist, Movie, Music Video, Video Podcast, TV Show, or Rental. Once you have selected a category, you can search each category alphabetically (A-Z). In addition, the head unit offers Link Search, which allows you to play songs related to the currently playing song. Link Search lets the head unit create an album list of the currently playing artist, a song list of the currently playing album, or an album list of the currently playing genre. You can also select Random & Repeat functions for a certain song or specific folder. In addition, the head unit will display your iPod/iPhone's stored music information including Track number, Elapsed playing time, Song/Album title, Artist name, and Album art. Older iPod/iPhone device's will be locked during connection, but Apple devices w/ iOS 6.0+ will stay unlocked so you can also control the iPod/iPhone from its touchscreen or clickwheel.
    • App Mode: App Control allows you to navigate stored audio/video content from your connected iPod/iPhone's clickwheel or touchscreen. This is very useful for the person riding in your passenger seat. The App mode also lets you listen to your favorite music apps from your iPhone (iOS 3.0+) through the Pioneer head unit and your vehicle's speakers. In addition, you can watch video on the Pioneer A/V receiver's touchscreen from streaming movie apps downloaded on your iPhone 4/4S or iPhone 5/5C/5S. Not all apps will be compatible with App Mode and App Mode will provide only limited (basic), if any, control over the app. Available controls may include; Play/Pause & Skip Previous/Next. There is no music information displayed when this unit is set to "App mode". Instead, all music information will be displayed on your iPod/iPhone's LCD screen. App Control mode requires the CD-IV203 VGA Interface Cable Kit /Apple Lightning-to-VGA adapter (all sold separately) for Lightning connector Apple devices; and the CD-IU201V or CD-IU201S Pioneer cable (sold separately) for 30-pin dock connector devices.
    Note: Video functions can only be accessed when the vehicle's parking brake is fully engaged.

    AppRadio Mode: Using the Pioneer CD-IV203 VGA Interface Cable Kit / Apple Lightning-to-VGA adapter (all sold separately) to connect the AVH-3600BHS to your iPhone 5/5C/5S (iOS 7.1.2) loaded with Pioneer's free AppRadio application from the Apple App Store, you can enjoy full on-screen access and control of your music, navigation, calendar, contacts, and more with an intuitive interface; formatted and designed specifically for safer in-vehicle operation. The same can be done with the iPhone 4/4S (iOS 4.3+) using Pioneer's CD-IU201S RGB/USB cable (sold separately). Pioneer has teamed up with app providers to offer compatibility with many of today's most popular in-vehicle apps, while also developing an expanding catalog of compatible apps for future use that can be easily & seamlessly added.

    I got GPS to work using the phone. . The problem is that the latency and the interface were not as good as the phone itself. In the end, I use a phone holder on the dash instead. In order to really see value from GPS, you would need the add-on navigation system for GPS to enable navigation without the phone.

    Just installed this unit in my truck. I noticed that when I play a store-bought CD (not one that I burned), there is no information displayed about the CD contents. I find this very odd because a CD that was burned with multiple folders shows all kinds of info. Am I missing something? How do I get the info from a CD to display?

    If the cd purchase is just a basic cd, generally the meta data is not avalible. The reason a burned cd works is because the files you burned contained the meta data about the track and artist.

    Q
    Where would I run the external BT microphone in 2007 Mustang convertible?
    [ Thomas  Apr 24, 2015 ]
    3 answers
    A
    It's a hard question to answer, as the external BT is actually a small microphone. On my Lexus, it's installed on the front panel drivers side right next to the sun visor. On the Mustang, they can install in a similar place, however you can never use it if your too is down. The wind alone will make it too noisy to hear your voice. That being said, after owning a convertible, the BT function is not really ideal as you'll have challenges hearing the contact on the other end through the speakers with all of the exterior noise if your top is down. Consider this option null and void if the top is down, and only functional if it's up. The display does have a "privacy on/off" touch option when on the BT call, that will disable the call being placed through the car stereo, and when "privacy on" is selected, the call will just come through your phone as normal, which is a nice feature.
    [ Eric  Apr 28, 2015 ]

You can use a flash drive if your USB cable is essentially an extension cable (same connector both ends), and not a typical USB cable, which has dissimilar connectors on the ends.

    The USB is on the back that you plug. It comes with a cord. So you will have route the cord through or around the radio on where you plan to plug in your devise. I wish it had a plug in the front do you don't have a cord just sitting there. With a little tweaking the cord can be hiding Yes it has aux but it's in he back. Nothing I the front.

    They are on the back of the unit. The usb will come with an extension that you can run to the front. I put the wire in the glove box.

    Hi Steven, There's a USB port on the back. That port is what the iPhone plugs into. Instead you can plug in a usb drive in on an extension cable. This is also how you update the firmware, if it's needed. Hope this helps!

    Hello! The USB port is on the back but the unit comes with an extension cable. I have the cable routed into my glove box for easy access. The auxiliary port is also located in the back but found no real reason to connect that. It's a great unit and I've been really satisfied with it! Best of luck with your decision! Let me know if you have any further questions! Cheers!

    The USB is in the back and a cable is provided as an extender so u can route the USB cable to a hidden area if needed. There no connections on the front at all. Im not sure if the aux is in the back or if it exists but its definitely not on the fron

    Are you running pandora via Bluetooth? If so you'll have to go into settings and reset your Bluetooth settings, the turn off the Bluetooth on the stereo itself as well as on your phone before turning the stereo off again, turn the stereo back on and set up your new Bluetooth connection

    If you have rebooted the phone, you can try resetting the headunit. If that fails, the last thing to try would be to reinstall the application on your phone. Above and beyond that, i would reach out to support to see if the headunit is having issues. I had to RMA the first one I had due to it freezing when switching functions.

    Q
    When my phone is paired through is Bluetooth audio always connected in the background? For example will the receiver temporarily mute my music and read my text messages aloud or if I have GPS running on my will the audio cues come through the speakers? This sounds like the Siri Eyes Free feature but I am interested in support for Android. I have the older model and music will pause for incoming calls but other audio notifications are not transmitted through the speakers.

    With my Android phone (Galaxy Note3), the stereo does not appear to have the features you are looking for. If the phone rings, it will automatically mute and switch to the bluetooth source. It will not pause for text messages. Nor can I make the handsfree dialing and phone control work. The box says Android compatible, but with my phones, not so much.

    I have an iPhone and I get directions and text through the speakers. It doesn't so much mute my music then but I can set the volume level for information from my phone so I can hear it clearly... No idea on androids sorry. I do know it's not just Siri info that can come through the stereo but phone noises like alerts and such I can hear as well. I turn the volume down unless I'm using it for a function like GPS. Hope this helps..

    Yea it should work. It depends on if your backup camera is on the car stock or if your adding one on. It should work with almost any add on camera. I'm not sure if it would work for a camera installed from the factory, that is most likely vehicle specific.

    I wired up the unit as suggested but I get no volume. I'm installing the unit in a Toyota Sequoia. The adapter harness that I bought has RCA jacks that connect to the back of the radio. The only connections I had to make were power, ground, and constant power. Any ideas why the volume might not be working? I don't even get static.

    It did charge the iPhone using the cable. Got the cables to use app mode, app mode needs some improving. It requires setting for iPhone over Bluetooth to work, so I think that's for so the USB keeps iPhone charging. To me personally I use a 64 gig thumb drive for my music using USB, and the music - etc pandora, I heart - gmusic using iPhone through Bluetooth.
