About the Pioneer MVH-X560BT

Welcome to the digital age

If you're done with discs and ready for an all-digital entertainment experience, Pioneer's MVH-X560BT digital media receiver (there's no CD player) lets you enjoy music from your iPhone® or iPod®, select Android™ phones, or a USB thumb drive when you're on the road. You'll also get Bluetooth® hands-free calling, Pandora® control with iPhone or Android, and App Control. The big, multi-line display makes it easy to see the artist and song info, along with your system settings. You can select separate colors for the display and the control keys, for over 200,000 possible combinations.

Who needs CDs, anyway?

You can plug your iPod and iPhone into this receiver's USB port and make music selections through the receiver. As a bonus, the receiver will also charge your device while you're playing your tunes. If you own an iPhone 4S or iPhone 5, you can take advantage of Siri® Eyes Free functionality with a touch of a button, accessing a variety of functions with your voice commands.

Android users can control their music via Bluetooth or plug into the front panel USB port and play music while getting a charge. You can also plug in a thumb drive and enjoy MP3, WMA, and WAV files, or use the aux input to connect an MP3 player or portable satellite radio tuner.

Pioneer MVH-X560BT Digital Media Receiver

Pioneer's MVH-X560BT receiver features a multi-line display with over 200,000 color options.

Built-in Bluetooth™

The MVH-X560BT features built-in Bluetooth, so you can enjoy hands-free calling and wireless music streaming while you drive. You'll speak into the included external microphone and hear the other end of the conversation through your vehicle's speakers. With “Guest Mode,” you can add or replace a mobile device with ease -- a great feature for a family car with multiple drivers, or one driver with multiple devices.  

Compact size, big-time performance

With no CD player to worry about, Pioneer's designers were able to fit lots of features into a chassis that's 40% shallower than their CD receivers. The powerful MOSFET amplifier gives you outstanding sound, while Advanced Sound Retriever (ASR) technology brings back the musical detail lost when you compress music. A 5-band graphic equalizer lets you adjust the sound to suit your tastes, and you'll appreciate the three sets of preamp outputs when you add amps to your system.

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.

This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.

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

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.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The MVH-X560BT is equipped with built-in Bluetooth ver. 3.0, allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP (Hands Free Profile), HSP (Head Set Profile), OPP (Object Push Profile), PBAB (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Pioneer MVH-X560BT.

    SPP + USB Pairing w/ Guest Mode: With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the MVH-X560BT without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings (your phone must also support SSP). When your paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units. Up to 3 Bluetooth-compatible devices can be paired to this head unit, but nly one device can be used at a time. You can also pair your Apple iPhone by simply connecting it to the Pioneer head unit via USB and following a single prompt on the head unit's display. In addition, the MVH-X560BT features "Guest Mode", which allows you to add and replace a mobile device instantly to the receiver. Guest Mode is a great feature for a family vehicle with multiple drivers or a driver with multiple devices because it allows users to pair and delete devices easily without a lengthy registration or deletion process.

    Hands-Free Communication (w/ External Mic): The MVH-X560BT supports wireless hands-free communication (HFP/HSP/OPP/PBAB) for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The head unit will display the caller's information and an audible ring tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker during an incoming call. You can manually answer an incoming call or have the unit automatically answer the call. The MVH-X560BT allows you to carry on a phone conversation from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone using the head unit's external microphone and your car audio speakers. During a conversation you can adjust the volume, as well as switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode. Using the MVH-X560BT, you can dial a phone number in one of the following ways:

    • Phone Book: The phone book in your Bluetooth enabled cellular phone will be transferred automatically when the phone is paired to this unit. After finding the number you want to call in the phone book from the head unit, you can select the entry and make the call. If a lot of numbers are registered in the phone book, you can search for a phone number by the contact person's name alphabetically (A-Z).
    • Call Log: The most recent calls dialed, received, and missed are stored in memory. You can browse them and call numbers from these lists.
    • Voice Dialing (Siri only): When paired and connected with an iPhone 4S or 5/5C/5S via Bluetooth, the Pioneer head unit has the ability to access Siri through its front-panel controls and external microphone. You'll be able to dial a phone number or contact via voice command.
    Note: The external microphone provides better performance in noisy environments than the integrated microphone found on the front-panel of many aftermarket or factory radios. The microphone features a 13' cord that plugs into the back of the radio, and comes with an adjustable visor-mount clip. The microphone measures 0.475" (diameter) x 1.445" (depth). The unit is not equipped with an integrated microphone.

    Wireless Audio Streaming (with Song/Artist Info): The Pioneer MVH-X560BT also supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone. The head unit can stream music stored on your Bluetooth enabled device or music apps you have downloaded on your device. The MVH-X560BT will be able to control basic playback features; Play, Pause, & Skip Tracks (app must also support). The head unit will also display your  music's song information; such as Artist name and Song/Album title (app must also support). When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call.

    USB & Android Integration

    Rear-Panel USB Input (Android Compliant): The unit's rear-panel USB (type-A) port and 58" USB extension cable allows you to connect a USB Mass Storage Class (MSC) or USB Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) compliant device; such as your Android smartphone, portable digital audio player, or USB thumbdrive. The USB port enables audio playback & control of MP3, WMA, and WAV music files stored on your portable USB MSC/MTP device through the Pioneer MVH-X560BT. USB devices that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the digital media receiver's USB port (1A) and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On.

    • File/Track Name List: The Name List feature displays a list of MP3/WMA albums and tracks on a connected USB device, so you can easily access your music. Music files are listed first by Artist name, then by Album name, and finally by Song title.
    • Song/Artist Information: During MP3/WMA playback, the unit displays any recorded ID3 Tag (ver. 1.x/2.x) and WMA Tag information; including artist, song, and album name.
    • Playback Controls: The Pioneer digital media receiver provides basic operations like Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, Previous/Next Track, and Repeat/Random for USB device playback. When a compatible Android smartphone is connected, the head unit will control music playback functions; you will not be able to control your music from the smartphone.
    Note: The unit's rear-panel USB port supports Android OS 4.0+ (Ice Cream Sandwich/Jelly Bean) as a Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) device. It also supports Android OS 2.2+ (Froyo/Gingerbread) as a Mass Storage Class (MSC) device; as of 11/25/2013. The receiver does not support Android OS 3.1+ (Honeycomb) or other Android operating systems not listed.

    Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

    Rear-Panel Aux Input: The MVH-X560BT is equipped with a rear-panel 3.5mm stereo minijack auxiliary input for connecting external components, such as a portable MP3 player. 

    AM/FM + Pandora Radio

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

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

    Pandora Internet Radio (for iPhone & Android): The free Pandora App (either from iTunes Apps or Google Play) lets you play music from the Pandora music service through the Pioneer MVH-X560BT using your USB-connected Apple iPhone (iOS 5.0+) or Bluetooth paired Android smartphone. Your Apple iPhone must be connected to the MVH-X560BT via the appropriate Pioneer iPod connector cable (130CDIU51/130CDIU52, sold separately) or the connector-cable that came with your iPhone. Your Android smartphone must support A2DP/AVRCP/SPP Bluetooth profiles and be paired with the Pioneer MVH-X560BT. Your iPhone or Android smartphone will also need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, or WiFi. The MVH-X560BT provides control over the Pandora music service and displays Artist, Album, and Song information.

    • Station List w/ Shuffle: You can select Pandora stations from your Station List by date or alphabetically (A-Z). You can also listen to songs played randomly from various stations within your Station List.
    • New Stations: New stations can be created based on the current songs or artists playing.
    • Skip Songs: You can skip song tracks within a station. You cannot skip back to a previous song. Pandora limits the number of skips allowed.
    • Thumbs Up/Down: You can give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down to help Pandora personalize stations to suit your preferences.
    • Bookmarking: The song/artist currently being played can be bookmarked & stored in your Pandora account.

    Note: Access to the Pandora service will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone or smartphone to connect to the Internet. Pandora is not supported in Canada and only available in the United States.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The Pioneer in-dash head unit utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The MVH-X560BT is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power specifications for the MVH-X560BT are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.

    • CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels
    Note: The rear speaker outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading capability, or they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass) output. When the rear speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp outputs also switch from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer operation, you can connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm passive subwoofers or a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you prefer to use a single 2-ohm subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of speaker leads, leaving the other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum output provided when a 2-ohm load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.

    2V/6CH Preamp Outputs + Sub Control: The Pioneer MVH-X560BT features three pair of 2.0-volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Subwoofer). The unit's front and rear preamp output can be faded (front/rear), while the subwoofer preamp output is non-fading. The Pioneer MVH-X560BT lets you adjust the subwoofer preamp output's phase (normal/reverse) and volume (+6 to -24).

    Crossovers: The MVH-X560BT employs high pass and low pass crossovers to tailor the head unit to your connected speakers.

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

    Equalizer: The Pioneer MVH-X560BT features a Preset & Custom EQ. The built-in equalizer offers 7 preset sound modes (Powerful, Dynamic, Vocal, Natural, Custom 1, Custom 2, and Flat) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The two Custom modes allow you to manually adjust the head unit's 5-band EQ (80Hz, 250Hz, 800Hz, 2.5kHz, 8kHz) from +/-6dB. Custom 1 can be set separately for each source (except for USB/iPod/Pandora); while Custom 2 and the other 5 presets are shared settings used for all sources.

    Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. Hear the detail, warmth, and clarity, the way the artist intended it, from all of your highly compressed MP3 and WMA files stored on your USB device, iPod/iPhone, and portable media players. By restoring data (especially higher frequencies) that tends to get lost in the digital compression process, Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever technology enhances audio reproduction nearly all the way up to 20 kHz frequencies

    Audio Level Settings: The Pioneer MVH-X560BT digital media receiver offers a variety of audio settings to tailor the bass, treble, and volume level to your preference.

    • Bass Boost The MVH-X560BT features a bass boost function which can be used to enhance low-frequency bass sound. The bass boost function can be set between 0-6.
    • Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low and high sound ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness feature to Low, Mid, High, or Off.
    • Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Settings are based on the volume level of the FM tuner, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from -4dB to +4dB.

    MIXTRAX: Drawing from Pioneer's rich DJ heritage and passion for music, MIXTRAX delivers a unique DJ infused listening experience to listeners in the car. MIXTRAX is an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a non-stop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects. MIXTRAX takes your typical music listening experience and creates a non-stop mix of your music with 9 random DJ effects and transitions, by removing the breaks and pauses normally introduced between tracks and replacing them with various beats. MIXTRAX is compatible with USB-connected iPhone, iPod, USB MSC device, and select Android devices. There is also a Short Playback option which limits the amount of time each track plays; select from 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, or 3 minutes.

    Note: The MIXTRAX function does not work in App mode or with the Pandora App for iPod/iPhone/iPad. It is also not supported by USB MTP devices.

    Display Features

    Detachable Face Security: The Pioneer MVH-X560BT in-dash digital media receiver features detachable face security. No face case is included with this unit. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired.

    Multi-Line LCD w/ Ever Scroll: The Pioneer MVH-X560BT features a multi-line LCD with LED backlighting. You can easily view file/folder lists from your MP3/WMA music files, radio presets, or data from your connected iPod/iPhone (up to 13 characters). When the Ever Scroll feature is set to On, recorded text information scrolls continuously on the display. It will auto-scroll up to 64 characters. Set this feature to Off if you prefer the information to scroll only once.

    Color Customization: Color Customization lets the user match their receiver illumination to their vehicle's interior lighting. Over 210,000 colors are available to match the illumination of almost any car. The button illumination and display illumination colors can be customized separately for an endless number of color combinations. You can select from 5 preset colors (White/Red/Amber/Green/Blue), customize an illumination color (by adjusting Red/Blue/Green brightness levels), or scan through a variety of colors. In addition, the brightness and contrast of the display can be adjusted. You can also select "ILLUMI FX"  to enable an illumination effect (on the display and keys) that will slowly fade in and out in a set pattern when a command or operation is made from the head unit.

    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. You can also choose which area's of the head unit's face illuminates; select Display, Display/Buttons, or Off.

    Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the Clock Display has been turned on, pressing and holding the "SRC" button turns off audio output, but the clock display and button illumination remains on (you can press the "DISP" button to turn off). When the Clock Display has been turned off, pressing and holding the "SRC" button turns the unit off completely. Even if you have turned the radio completely off you can view the clock display by pressing the "DISP" button. The clock will then remain On until you turn it back Off. When the unit is On, you can select between the clock display or the audio track/tuner display.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The MVH-X560BT comes with an IR wireless remote control. The remote allows you to control the volume, switch between sources, pause source, change the display, and adjust the audio. You can also mute the volume (function that cannot be performed from the front panel). In addition, you can answer/end calls from a Bluetooth connected smartphone.

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    I don't use Apple products, but instead use a USB stick dedicated to the job. In that instance, you go into the menu, then System, Info Display, and choose Clock (by default it is SPEANA.) I'm pretty sure it'll behave the same way for other sources.

    I no longer have the radio. However. It never took longer than 15-20 seconds to reconnect. More importantly the mic quality (per my friends and family) was very poor.

    I never timed it, but once you pair your phone to it, it connects every time without problems when you get in your vehicle and start it up. I would say that within 30 seconds of starting up your vehicle it is connected. For some reason, SIRI and voice calls sound a little crackly at first, though. I don't know of that is particular to this unit. I do love this unit overall and would buy it again.

    When connecting an ipod via usb (won't be using it for an iphone), if you've got the receiver set to usb input mode, select your music on the ipod, and then plug it in, will it start playing automatically? I have been in several cars where every time you plug in an ipod you have to go through a menu to select usb as the input. This is typically because the "aux" mode is shared by 3.5 mm "headphone" input and the usb so you have to tell it which one you're using.

    Rodrigo, I'll do the best I can to answer your question... I bought this for a 2000 Corvette that I sold ~7 months ago. As far as the thickness of the faceplate, that is going to depend somewhat on the install kit for your application. That being said, it does not stick out any farther than any other radio I have installed in other of my vehicles using the recommended installation kits that I got from crutchfield with the unit. I can't see it being more than 3/8" to 1/2". Not extending mush past the install bezel. The install looked fine. In the Corvette, it did look aftermarket to a trained eye, but not bad. I was after the Bluetooth to connect to my android smartphone for phone calls AND music playback. One thing about this unit is not having a CD/DVD player is that is is very short (depth), very compact. I also used the USB port with a thumb drive for random jukebox use. I don't have the dimensions in front of me, but if you are concerned about depth issues, this thing is tiny. Maybe you thought the published dimensions were a typo. Without the need to have the function of CD/DVD made the unit surprisingly short front to back. What I remember is the distance is not much bigger than the with of a set of playing cards. The BT functions and playing the music on my phone was no issue. Look at the published dimensions, maybe they show the dim of the front from the mounted flush position. The extended distance should not more than 1/8" to 1/4". Full disclosure... I did have one and I don't work for crutchfield. Hope this helps... greg from ga

    Bluetooth music streaming works great, however I have noticed that the phone has problems accepting the mic for this radio. My galaxy s3 worked flawlessly prior to getting my moto x. However, it might just be my setup, I haven't given it a factory reset since I got it to see if that fixes it. Other than that hiccup it's a great radio! Don't let the X's voice command hiccups (this isn't the only documented one) dissuade you from getting it! If you do use voice commands, just turn your music down ^_^

    Yes, It will send all audio through bluetooth to the unit. It also uses the microphone that comes with it to record. Just hold down the large center button (or use the remote) to activate and speak in regular volume. I sometimes had problems that the Siri screen would still stay on the phone and it wouldn't resume my playback. I just pushed the center button again and it started playing my music again.

    Absolutely. I know what you are talking about. When the device goes in coma and only the receiver can control it. Luckily this is not the case here (except when using the pandora feature, which I never did just because that reason) the car stereo will basically work as a audio reciver for any sound from the iphone. You also have the convenience of play/pause/next ect. Or answering call or activating Siri (hold down the circle button). So all controls from your phone are atill the same.

    [ David  Jun 18, 2014 ]

    Here's what I know: 1: there is not a connection to the vehicle lighting/dimming system. The harness adapter has one but there is no lead from the radio with a dimmer. 2. There is no ambient lighting sensor so all changes are manual 3. The good news is that the dimmer on/off finction is simply one button on the front of the radio and you simply hold it for a full second and it turns the dimmer on or off to your factory setting which is 3 levels BTW. In the beginning it was frustrating but many aftermarket systems don't use the factory dimmer especially the LED systems. FOr the price though it's not too bad and the rest of the unit is very good

    There is no auto sensor, but there is a button stand alone button on the screen to set it to the brightest in the evening so you don't have to go through the menu. There is also a "bolt-on" that you can purchase (I believe it was around $75) that could tie into your dash lighting. You must keep in mind the price point this unit is in. Hope this helps.

    Q
    Do I need to buy the Pioneer lightning cable to hook up my iphone 5 or will my regular lightning cable work?

    Your regular iPhone cable will work.

    The lightning cable you have will work, the Pioneer MVH-X560BT has a standard USB input on the back all you will need to do is plugin the included USB that comes with your Pioneer then you can plug your lightning cable in or a thumb drive and your ready to go.

    The regular IPhone 5 lightning cable works just fine. It plugs into the provided USB cable that comes with the stereo.

    The unit has a usb port so I think your current cable should work fine. Also you can connect thru bluetooth and go wireless. The bluetooth works awesome.

    the stereo just comes with a usb extension. so any usb cable will plug into it. you do not need the specific pioneer cable. of course the blue tooth works fine so I almost never actually hook my iphone up by cable. the good news is this usb port is made to charge the iphone

    Any cable should work, I use the one that came with my Iphone 5c and it works great, but i quickly quit using it unless i need to charge it, the Bluetooth streaming audio is beyond awesome!!!

    This head unit has a standard USB port in the back. It also comes with an extension USB cable which is about 3 feet long. So what ever cable you use to charge your iPhone 5 will connect directly to the USB port and allow you to control either your music or pandora through the head unit.

    If the USB works then it will work with the pioneer stereo. My phone is android and connect to the stereo with a remotely mounted USB connection.

    Yes it works fine with the Apple factory cable.

    This pioneer unit comes with a USB jack in the back, the unit also come with an extension cable for that jack. The extension cable is USB male plug on one end and USB female plug on the opposite end. The cable allows you to hook up your USB iPhone lighting cable and store the phone in glove box. I have an iPhone 4, and the lighting cable for iPhone 4 works on the stereo. I would assume as long as your lighting cable is USB on one end and the iPhone 5 jack on the other end that it would work.

    I'm not sure what the iPhone 5 cable looks like but the deck comes with a standard USB cable.

    Q
    Does this unit display song info, such as artist and song title, or does it just display it as track 01, track 02, etc..? The only demos I've found online don't show much in the way of what info is displayed while the song is playing. Thanks!

    Since it's a media receiver only it will only get songs from digital devices. So if you have the song info on the media file that's playing it will show the Title, Album and Artist. It also shows titles when playing local radio stations. If you play from apps on the iPhone you'll also see the same info that shows up on your iPhone's lock screen.

    The unit will show what the files and folders are named.

    I use a USB flash drive and it displays the track number and song name. With an IPOD it shows track,song and artists. The FM tuner also show the radio station, song and artist.

    Yes it does have track info off of whatever you are playing. Tried I tunes, Amazon MP 3, Google music, and audible. All display track info.

    Q
    What is your opinion of the unit? I am looking for a unit for my wife's vehicle. She has an extensive library of songs on her Iphone 5. Unit doesn't need to do much, play songs/ work well with phone.

    This unit does exactly what you expect. I installed it because I was tired of not having bluetooth streaming from my iPhone 5 and for hands-free phone use. It does both without any problems. Installation was a snap, too, with the free install kit available from Crutchfield. Hope it works out for you!

    Sorry, it's a XMAS gift. Not yet given. Looking for the same thing you are, so hope it works well.

    I was looking for a head unit that only used digital media. While i'm an Android user, I understood these things had better compatibility with Apple products. I've only had a few days to use this unit but I have been very happy with it so far. The interface has been easy to understand and use. I can get artist/track/song title from Pandora and a few other apps, but I generally just leave it on Bluetooth. Plugging my phone or a USB drive via the USB port, the unit immediately switches over and starts playing songs. The quality of the sound, whether its across Bluetooth or USB, is about as good as its going to get without replacing my speakers. Very clear, very responsive. There is even a search feature for navigating your file structure, but I haven't used it much. Call quality is also top notch. The unit pulled my contacts the moment I synced with Bluetooth and will tell me who is calling, or answer automatically if I choose. I kept the microphone near the center of my dashboard and everyone says I still sound crystal clear. My only warning is that, my very first call's volume seemed to be set much higher than my music volume, and nearly crippled our eardrums. Watch out for that. Could have been my fault since I was up super late, but who knows. I would definitely recommend this item for your wife's needs. Its a pretty little head unit too. I changed the color scheme to match my dashboard, but it'll put on a whole light show, even take the media on your device and DJ it up for you, cutting out the space between songs, etc.

    I installed in this weekend. So far I like it. My boyfriend is a tech geek, which is why I choose this one. I have a sub, amp, and new speakers all around in my car. It sounds great but it has a lot of features that I know I will not use. The con is that the USB and AUX ports are in the back of the unit so these cords have to ran somewhere.

    I've had the unit in my vehicle for only about a week now. But I like it. I own an iPhone 4, and this is the first aftermarket stereo with Bluetooth that I have owned and really like that option. The unit fit exactly into my 96 vw passat. The unit also come with and aux port on back as well as USB port on back. I think pioneer makes decent quality head units but I have had issues with pioneer speakers in the past. For the price, it seems like a good deal.

    Just finished installing it yesterday. Unit is great, works well with the iphone, controls Siri well, the mic for hands free calling is really good, even in my miata with the top down. The sound / EQ controls are pretty good, I've got the unit dialed in and am getting a nice crisp sound with decent bass comming out of my 6.5 door speakers...

    Works great with my android phone. So I can only assume it would be just as good if not better with a apple device which the deck has many features built in for. Blue tooth audio quality is great I would definitely recommend it.
