Video: Pioneer 2013 DVD Receivers
I've been a camera nut all my life, so it makes sense I'd end up being a video producer. Of course, it has been a roundabout journey for me, as I started at Crutchfield in 2007 writing about car audio gear. Over the years I've learned about all the electronic items we sell, and it is my job to make sure we are making videos that you will find useful, whether you're shopping for something specific or trying to install some new gear yourself. My job is a lot of fun because I get to play around with all the cool stuff you see on our website while I'm making videos about it. Getting hands-on with the gear helps me see what I should show you about a product, though the flip side is my personal wish list is a mile long...

Pioneer's 2013 line of DVD receivers gives you much more than movie playback. Advanced App Mode allows you to launch and control compatible iPhone apps from the face of your receiver, putting a variety of music, navigation, and social media apps at your command. Pioneer's intuitive touchscreen controls allow you to make changes by tapping, swiping, or dragging your finger, along with user-friendly menus that you can customize to your liking.
You can add navigation using an app, or via a dedicated add-on navigation module with a built-in traffic information receiver.
