Pioneer has created a dynamic addition to your dash with their FH-X720BT CD receiver. You can choose from over 210,000 colors with 10 brightness levels to match the Pioneer's display to your vehicle's dash illumination, or you can set separate colors for controls and display to create the look that makes you happy.
Chose from multiple color combinations for the display and controls.
When you're in the mood, Pioneer's exclusive MIXTRAX feature adds a light show to your dash as you're listening to your favorite playlists and music files. You'll enjoy a pulsating multi-color display that's synchronized with your tunes, plus DJ-style audio transitions from song to song. It's sure to liven up the audio experience in your ride.
You can plug your iPhone® or Android phone into the front-panel USB input, then use the receiver's controls to access your tunes. If you're a Pandora fan, you can take charge from the receiver when your iPhone® or Android phone is connected, and you create new stations while you're on the go.
You can answer a call coming in on your compatible phone with the push of a button on the receiver. You'll talk as if your caller is sitting next to you, freeing up your hands and letting you concentrate on the drive. The FH-X720BT supports Bluetooth audio streaming too, so you can stream music wirelessly from compatible devices to the receiver, plus control basic functions like track up or down.
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.

Average Customer Review(s):
nice stereo for the money
It's better than the (Clarion) unit it replaced, and the sound is good, but the interface is atrocious. Between the two of us, my wife and I have six college degrees (in technical subjects), and we can't figure out how to get half the features to work, even with the manual right in front of us. We'll eventually learn how to use the two or three features we really need, and forget about the rest. The price was right, though.
Pros: Good price.
Cons: Incomprehensible interface, badly written manual.
Bought it for my son 2003 Jetta. Fits great (no modification necessary) east to install (less than an hour). I wanted my son to have Bluetooth capability. I ordered another unit inadvertently without Bluetooth. A quick call to Crutchfield with this model picked out and they sent it right out to me even before I sent back the wrong unit back, even swap price wise (Crutchfield picked up the postage). Very happy with the radio and especially with Crutchfield's customer service
Pros: Fit well. Did not have to modify vehicle even though instructions called for removing original radio bracket. Good price for an older vehicle. Ease of use. Good sound adjustment qualities.
Cons: Bluetooth is sometimes slow to connect but fine once connected.
Good value for the price. Could not believe how much it improved my factory speakers. Much crisper sound and improvement on the bass. Bluetooth is wonderful! Agree with everyone else that you can't see the display when its bright outside, but that doesn't bother me.
Pros: Much better sound - bluetooth works great - great value for the money
Cons: Can't see display very well during daytime.
Great deck. My only complaint would be the display is not bright enough in daylight, which makes it difficult to see
Pros: Easy install Great sound Nice design Bluetooth
Cons: Display not bright enough in daylight hours
Best radio I have ever bought. It was super easy to install and the performance is outstanding. Would highly recommend this unit to everyone who is looking for a radio upgrade project
Great stereo, just installed in my Nissan Rogue and it looks and sounds awesome.
Great unit, it's my second one so that says something. The bluetooth capabilities of this unit is what has me as a return customer. My phone and the unit link up without me having to touch a thing each and every time without fail. I also really enjoy being able to switch the colors accents to match the rest of the my vehicle. In terms of performance, it more than enough to bring your stock speakers to life or give ample power to your after market speakers.
Pros: Great Price Very functional There's a newer model to look forward too
Cons: Doesn't come with free speakers
Pretty nice system, sounds pretty good. More intuitive menu system than my wife's radio. Had the system installed by Geek Squad and the trim piece doesn't fit properly.
Excellent service from Crutchfield. Easy installation. I have not used this with my phone yet, but the reception and sound is great on FM
Pros: Straight forward intall, good price, good sound
Cons: none yet
Install was fairly easy. I had to call in for some assistance on the harness. I soldered my connections so it took a bit longer. The unit is nice looking and simple enough to provide what I need. I purchased this unit so I could stream audio over BT as my stock Tacoma radio did not support his feature. I was able to retain my Tacome steering wheel controls and and I can now summon Siri. The dash kit was easy to install and the overall fit and finish looks very good. However, I cannot recommend this unit to everyone. I'd actually return it but I'm too lazy to swap the harness, undo my connections, etc. The designers must have lived in a cave or something because the display is 100% useless during daylight hours. I mean useless. I cannot see what is being displayed on the unit at all...nada, zip, zilch. I wonder how such a flaw can get past the team at Pioneer and make it to production. However, If you are a night owl and only drive your car when the sun has left the hemisphere then you're in luck - the deck looks wicked. Perhaps it was this demographic that Pioneer was after?
Pros: Functions, sound, ease-of-use
Cons: display leaves a lot to be desired
plays great looks great
Pros: the detailed instructions are on the money no one has ever sent diagramed step by step
Cons: the harness does not work on 2002 blazerCrutchfield response on 8/9/2016 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our tech support team right away.

Perfect fit for my car. The Bluetooth is awesome. It steams all music from Pandora to IHeartRadio with ease. Good affordable price for all the features it has.
Pros: Affordable with plenty features, and hands free Bluetooth calling and steaming audio
Could be a little less expensive, but that unit is awesome. It really brings out the potential of the factory speakers. The sound is much crisper and cleaner than the OEM Stereo.
I was looking for an upgrade for my factory unit since my cd changer stopped working and left me only able to listen to the radio. Love the features, easy to install, great price and sounds great with the 6 x8 Pioneer speakers I got too.
Pros: Value Sound Quality Easy Install
Cons: Haven't found any issues yet.
Great looking head unit from Pioneer. I usually always go with Kenwood because of their sound quality, but took a chance with this one. Looks really cool and is very easy to navigate through its menus. Bluetooth and variable colors is also a major plus. I paired this with 4 Polk MM651 speakers, which is Polk's top of the line speakers and are very powerful. I am giving it 4 stars only because of the sound quality. Have those speakers in my other car with a Kenwood head unit and they sound a little better, but I'm just very picky. Overall though, great head unit for the money.
Pros: Looks cool, Bluetooth, color variable, easy to navigate
Cons: Need an amp if using this head unit with powerful speakers
Bought a used 2004 Ford Ranger. I wanted to update the sound system. This receiver has Bluetooth and hands free phone. Both of these features work great.
Pros: Good price, great sound
I've used mostly Pioneer head units since the first one I purchased in 1983. I have never been disappointed in Pioneer. They have always been 100% reliable for me.
Pros: Large, easy to use controls. Clean and simple layout.
Great replacement for my Mustang radio. I'm old school and this is little more complicated than the original, had to use the manual. The great instructions and wiring harnesses from Southfield made the installation a snap.
Pros: Great sound and bluetooth.
Cons: I have a convertible which makes the screen really hard to see.
The unit is solid, easy to install, and easy to navigate,( as much as head units can be). Installing didn't take long and internal set up was very easy
Pros: Cool Easy to Navigate Easy to Install
Cons: Lights on display could be brighter during the day so I can read what it's saying
I installed a pioneer bluetooth deck on my own vehicle 6 years ago so I kind of know how things go. This time around I opted to buy from Crutchfield with all the right accessories for my wife's 2004 Vibe, it's just easier. And there are some dash mount kit that are so poorly made they just won't fit into your vehicle even if their website says otherwise. Crutchfield has that extra level of safety and i don't have to go to 3 different store to buy parts for a 12th year old vehicle. Anyway, onto the deck: I like Pioneer's sound and their user interface, this unit operates mostly like the one I got 6 years ago. Sounds good for everyday driving, the only thing that bugged me is the lack of mute button on the deck. You can turn the main dial to lower volume but that dial is super smooth surfaced and I prefer panic-jabbing a button rather than a delicate turning wheel. Just a preference. As others have mentioned, the LCD screen is pretty dim regardless of brightness level. This is made even more apparent by the surrounding lights which are brighter for an unknown reason. Design-wise I went with double-din because of the big buttons, and because the mini-cubby that comes with a single din faceplate is pretty narrow, not easy to dig your stuff out of it. The shifting light feature is cool for about 10 seconds, much like a commercial paying homage to the 00's. For the price though still love it. Shipping is fast, packed very well with al
Pros: ease of use, good sound. well made.
Cons: No mute button on deck. Only have mute button on remote.
This radio is great! Whenever I am about to purchase something (especially technology), I look online to see what sort of ratings/reviews the product has. This product is currently the highest rated double-din car receiver on their site. When I got it, it was exactly what I thought it would be and more. I did not upgrade the factory speakers in my car, but after putting this radio in, my music sounds a lot better! Also, when I tried out the bluetooth calling feature, my buddy on the other end of the line told me that the sound quality matched that of a regular phone call.
Pros: -Lighting looks cool. -Bluetooth. -Great audio output.
Amazingly easy to install. This stereo is fantastic! I am by no stretch of the imagination handy at anything. However, since I didn't have the extra $200 (extra cost of stereo vs. Crutchfield plus install) I decided to take a chance and install this stereo myself into a 2003 Toyota Corolla S. Thanks to YouTube it was a cinch. Plus Crutchfield made it even better by providing the correct cables and mount for free. I am definitely buying from Crutchfield again. This stereo sounds perfect, is super easy to use, looks cool, and the Bluetooth conversations are so much better than with a headset. The switch between car and phone is seamless and I love how I just turn on my car and Pandora starts up where it left off or my Audible book continues from where it was, just amazing. Highly recommended!!!
Pros: Excellent Bluetooth Phone Conversations. Seamless connection from phone to Bluetooth audio. Easy to use. Design is great. Colors are a plus.
I like the sound, look, and function of this radio. It is easy to use. I really like the button operation as opposed to touch screen. This is much simpler when driving. It interfaced well with my 2007 Ford Edge steering wheel controls and the Bluetooth works great with my phone.
Pros: Easy to use. Great look and sound. The display color is adjustable.
Cons: The clock display is very difficult to see during the daylight hours.
Love it so far. Easy to navigate the functions.
Pros: Hands-free phone is great. The mood lighting is good, too
Cons: None so far
This thing is freaking great! I got it for the Bluetooth functionality and it really delivers. As a side note, my daughter loves getting to pick the colors for the face. You can pick two colors or have it monochrome. That's a fun little feature.
Pros: Appearance, Bluetooth functionality
Cons: Fairly clunky placement of skip buttons
Radio was SO easy to install but after installation I regretted purchasing this radio for this car. The 2006 Hyundai Sonata's stock radio I did this install on had A digital read out that was just fine, no viewing problems. This radios' display is so dim in daylight it's basicly unusable. Display brightness is set to 10. and yes, its' installed correctly. Any light hitting the display will wash it out making daytime usage close to impossible
Pros: Sound Quality Blutooth phone Operation Fairly flexible set up setting ioptions
Cons: Display brightness is just terrible!! It you rely on the radio in the daytime for the clock display get a watch! Better yet look elsewhere as this problem is commonplace in the whole Pioneer series of radios
This The second Unit I purchased from Crutchfield, Fast shipping Great Customer Service
Pros: Good Sound Quality, Great Features, Ease of Use
Cons: Brightness during daylight is very poor.
The unit is not user friendly, at least for me. The display is not readable in daylight, and if I can't see the display, I can't make changes while driving. There are many features I have not learned to use,because of the poor display. I wish I had spent more and gotten a better product. After 8 months I am ready to upgrade.
Pros: good sound quality, easy installation
Cons: Very poor display in daylight means limited use of features
Waiting for back ordered parts, but it looks great still in the box. Looking forward to install it.
Cannot beat this unit for the money. I love how crutchfield always sends the adapter and mount for the system. The car needs some work as far as sound deadening, but the system itself sounds great. Paired with a set of JBL speakers.
Pros: Like the look of it, the easy knob in the middle and the color options. Great value~
Cons: Use may take me a little while to get used to.
Works! Display is viewable in the sun.
Pros: Does what it says
First off, I have not used Crutchfield in probably 15 years and man are you guys awesome! Ordered the head unit and kit to install in my car including the MasterSheet and the install went flawless! There were no issues what so ever! I can not believe how well it actually worked out as I have not done one in years. The receiver is amazing. Huge sound quality improvement and looks excellent. Thank you and I will always order from Crutchfield.
Love the blue tooth with my android phone, the Pandora app works great and sound quality from the factory stereo is huge. I customized the colors to match my interior light it looks good,
Pros: Price with lots of features
Great unit with so many options for such a low price.Awesome sound and features,loved it...
Pros: Sound and features
Cons: Display very hard to see in any sunlight at all.
bought this basically just to have bluetooth capability for my phone. It works great. Easy to answer and make calls. The sound is high quality.
Pros: ease of use. high quality sound. very easy install.
This is a very nice stereo for the price. The sound quality with my Bose system is awesome and is so much better than the factory stereo. I highly recommend this stereo. I installed it in a 2004 Chevy 2500hd and purchased Crutchfield's wiring harness and the harness for the steering wheel controls. I recommend you buy these harnesses because they are inexpensive and really give you a clean install. I also recommend you solder the harnesses together. I initially just twisted the harness wires to test it (which some people do permanently) and I had a humming sound from the speakers probably from a bad ground connection, so after I soldered all the wires that went away. You won't go wrong with this product or Crutchfield!!
Pros: Looks and sounds great, easy to use, lots of control for adjusting the sound the way you like it.
Great unit for the price. Only real complaint are the instruction's. They do NOT really explain some of the feature and settings especially when it comes to subwoofer
Pros: Good quality for price. Like the Bluetooth for cell phone. Never had this before and I love it. Install was fairly easy especially if you buy wiring harness adaptor and bracket kit . Looks good love that you can set your own lighting theme
Cons: Instructions need to be more detailed on some of the settings
A great way to upgrade your old car at an affordable price. You may find it for a few dollars less somewhere. But if you are a DIYer, buy it from Crutchfield. Their technical support is top notch. They will put you on track when you make stupid mistakes. All this over the phone with no hold time. Other companies should get technical support training from Crutchfield.
Pros: Good price. Lotus of features.
Cons: June navigation could be simpler
Crutchfield has been around for years always selling home audio and car audio products I'm very glad I remembered when it was time for me to purchase mine. The step by step easy to navigate website was outstanding from filling out your car info and seeing what all fits your car takes the guessing game out. And the wiring harness and trim kit ESPECIALLY was a plus I will always look into crutchfield for all my audio needs
Pros: Absolutely love it
Great product at a great price! Pioneer has done it again.
Pros: Plenty of Features and options
Great unit on a budget. Bought purely for the Bluetooth function in my 2003 Tahoe.
Pros: Easy install with the proper wiring harness. Increased sound quality from stock.
Cons: Minor modifications needed to my vehicle to clear the rear of the unit, nothing a miniature hack saw couldn't handle.
This stereo looks like a factory unit. The illumination matches the other dash light in color. It is easy to install in my 2008 Subaru Impreza
Pros: Easy installation, matches factory dash light color and only took a few minutes to install
Great stereo for the price. Built in blue tooth with external microphone sounds like my phone is to my ear. Excellent sound!
Cool looking stereo with the needed options such as usb for iPhone, Bluetooth for iPhone aux jack for XM radio. There are so many features that it is complicated. However it's nice to have them available for when the time comes to tweak wants. Buttons and knobs seem a bit lightweight overall sound is very good, better than the OEM radio.
I am admittedly not using many of the different modes of this receiver, but the Bluetooth streaming of audio works as advertised! The phone automatically connects and begins playing whatever was previously playing on my phone.
'01 Acura MDX. The factory radio with 6-disc in dash CD changer finally gave out in my wife's car. If I could get it, a factory unit was going to be anywhere from $800-1000, sorry not gonna happen. I searched for an under-seat changer like I used in the old days, but couldn't find one. Finally, I remembered Crutchfield. Thank goodness. My advisor recommended this as a "baseline" unit and it has gotten me some Huge points and thanks with my wife. At first she insisted on a multi-disc changer. Then she realized she could play all of the music from her MP3 player and her IPhone, she's gone nuts. He sent me the part number for the dash adapter and the wiring harness and even for an old guy (50) it was very painless. Thanks Crutchfield
Pros: Sounds great. Looks awesome. Works perfectly. Look awesome
Cons: None at this point in time.
Excellent. Looks great, functions perfectly out of the box, and the bluetooth microphone sounds great to the other caller. Very pleased.
Pros: Price, look, function
The last Pioneer stereo I installed was an under dash "green eye" in the early 70's, so I figured I should be qualified to install one in my daughters Explorer. It was much easier than I anticipated. Spent 45 minutes soldering up a couple of harnesses and about an hour installing in the truck. Set up was easy and this thing really lit up the factory speakers and sub!
Pros: Ease of installation. I made 2 calls with questions on install, and the Crutchfield techs were immediately able to answer my questions. I was very impressed with the tech support. The steering wheel controls work great. Voice quality, and bluetooth audio is very good. This unit has a lot of custom settings for both audio and visuals.
Cons: The dials feel a bit flimsy compared to factory units but seem to function well. Some features are hidden into menus that aren't real intuitive... I actually had to open the owners manual to re-pair a phone after a reset. I might have to get one of these things for my Ford too!
Needed to replace factory radio in 2006 Honda Civic Coupe son drives to comply with cell phone hands-free law. This radio offers all that is needed to comply with the law and much more for my son to access his phone's music. Install with the discounted gear that Crutchfield has available made this a very cost effective project. My son is quite pleased with the unit's integration with his iPhone. While not as impressive as a 7 inch touch screen unit, this Pioneer is quite capable and much more cost effective.
Pros: Quality, iPhone integration, Price.
I bought this for my 2006 Toyota Sienna. It fit perfect and works great. Bought the wires and installation kit along with the radio. everything works great. The only issue is that the display is hard to see in daylight.
do not like, not easy to use while driving; poor sound quality; radio did not work after first day; blutooth impossible for layman to program. Can I return this radio for a different one????
Pros: video on your web site made this model look good
Cons: radio is not user friendly. changing channels while driving is not good. Do not like this radio, CD player.Crutchfield response on 2/22/2016 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our Customer Support team. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.
Love all of the features. Makes my factory speakers and subwoofer in my F150 sound great.
Very Good Pioneer Stereo. Cool looks with the power you need to rock!
Pros: Very cool powerful receiver with a lot of options and adjustability. Compact design fits perfectly with the install trim kit.
Cons: The center dial needs to be an indented style. It is somewhat difficult to determine where you are stopping when you turn the dial.
I am using this stereo as a replacement for the stock stereo for my 2005 Pontiac Vibe. Installation was easy with the free parts Crutchfield provided with the purchase price of the stereo, and it looks great in the car. I installed the blue tooth microphone at the upper left hand side of the windshield, and the most difficult part of the installation was hiding and running the wire (which is more than long enough for this purpose) back to the stereo, and even that wasn't too difficult. As was mentioned in a previous review with this make and model of car, the angle of the front of the stereo paired with the cars window placements means that if you are an average sized human, you will have glare off of the stereo that will make it difficult to see the stereo's display at times. I might not have noticed or cared if I hadn't have read that previous review. For everything else this stereo brings, it's a minor inconvenience. I was considering replacing my stock speakers, but this stereo has made them better enough that I am going to put off that decision for at bit. The stereo connects quickly with my Samsung Galaxy Bluetooth for both phone calls and media, and it works well with my iPod. The user controls are not entirely intuitive, but now that I've had the stereo installed for a few weeks, I can get the stereo to do everything I want it to efficiently.
Pros: Easy to install Looks Great Great colors Sounds great - makes factory speakers sound better Great hands free Bluetooth calls Equivalent price to factory replacement with loads more features
Cons: Glare off stereo face in this make/model of car
Pros: I could have spent more on other systems and got less!
Cons: Won't find any here...
I really just wanted to add an Aux port to my Canyon since the stereo had an Aux button. Turns out, it's not quite as straight forward as I'd hope. For just a bit more money, I picked up this unit, the harness and the dash kit. Great sound quality even with my stock speakers, Aux port, USB (either thumb drive or iPod) and Bluetooth. I didn't think I'd like the Bluetooth phone calls as much as I do.
Pros: Easy to install, easy to use, sounds great.
Cons: Nothing that I can think of though it's just a bit on the "flashy" side with all the lights.
Amazing radio great sound over stock. Crutchfield is an amazing company help me out all along the way. Never installed a radio before but they helped me make it easy
this Pioneer stereo was easy to install ,looks good sounds great but I have only had it in my truck for a week or so and twice it sounded like it was skipping on a track being played through my I phone so not sure what to think about that the same track I played it again and no skipping so wondering if it could be an issue with the stereo head unit ? blue tooth works great !
Pros: easy install, sound quality , blue tooth , mixtrax display
Cons: no power off button, possible issue with head unit skipping
Our factory radio stopped working and this is a great replacement. Although connecting the phone is not so intuitive, once performed it connects very easily.
Pioneer has never done me wrong. I actually had a MyGIG system in my Jeep, satellite, gps, touchscreen hard drive.. the works. However, given my phone does all that and more now, I chose the path of a "downgrade" where the stereo is simply an interface for my phone. Wow! Despite the bells and whisltes of the factory radio, that thing was holding the system back. This things sounds incredible and couldn't be easier to use.
installed in about an hour, instructions were easy to follow.
Pros: looks cool, good sound and easy setup and use.
Cons: external blue tooth mic. I thought it had one built in.
Bought it for my son's birthday he loves it
Works great! The sound in my truck is better and the bluetooth is fantastic. The screen can be hard to read sometimes, but I am loving the stereo.
Good sound easy to set up with good FM reception and plenty of features. I am not sure the MIx trac function will be valuable as I am not really looking to b teh DJ in my car, just want to hear the music. The display is bright and easy to read, colr matches my existing gauges which is nice.
Pros: Good FM, plenty of volume , adjustable lighting
Cons: Not sure what the benefit of the mix trac function but I guess in a different environment it might be fun.
Looks great and easy to use. The blue tooth feature is my favorite.
This product is amazing, the different led options is great to customize your car. The hands free calling is nice and clear and the microphone that this object comes with is just as great.
Pros: Custom lights Hands free calling Comes with a microphone Displays album and title names
Cons: You have to disconnect your Bluetooth everytime you get out your car or you will have issues connecting it.
great product. full of fun and looks great in my car.
Pros: great customer service. made installation a breeze.
I absolutely love this radio. Did not know I could make the keys and main display different colors also. I'm doing a red/white color theme on/in my lowered truck so it looks amazing. An awesome radio for an awesome price. I've told my friends to come to the website to shop for theirs also. Will be doing more business here in the future.
Pros: The lights and sound are awesome. Can hook up my phone and iPod through the Bluetooth instead of a big aux chord hanging out in the dash. I love the adapters for the sides to make it flush with the rest of the console too!
Great stereo for a great price with what I needed, quality Bluetooth.
Pros: Bluetooth works well
Cons: A little cumbersome to get to all the functions, but once you learn it you can navigate the controls pretty well.
Very nice relatively traditional radio for the money. The radio installed perfectly and easily in my 2000 Toyota Camry. It is a great replacement for the factory radio adding new features like Bluetooth and Apple connectivity. Instructions and connectors provided by Crutchfield made the installation a real breeze.
Pros: Bluetooth, hands-free for cell phone.
Cons: None so far.
Big sound improvement over the stock radio. I didn't expect this at the low price point.
Pros: Great sound, great bluetooth
Cons: Installation instructions could be clearer.
This unit has alot of features for the price. The blue tooth works great. Lots of cool lights. Great audio controls, but difficult to navigate through the menu.
Pros: Good sound quality. Cool lights. Priced right.
Cons: Difficult to navigate through the menu.
an excellent product for the price. takes a little time to figure out all the features. sound quality is very good
Pros: looks and sounds great.
Cons: menus are difficult
I thought it was a good value. I got it for my teenage son and he loves it.
Pros: Good value and features
Cons: In the advertisement we weren't sure if we could add an existing amp. The help line was great and we were able to attach the existing amp.
I am enjoying my new radio
excellent sound for the price
Pros: good price , like that you can adjust the display color different that the unit color and have a good sound.
great radio for the price ! it does everything I want and need and looks great in the dash as well
Pros: price and features
Cons: none so far
It's been over thirty years since I owned a Pioneer car receiver, so it's nice to know they are still one of the leaders in car stereos. I bought this unit to replace a Parrot Asteroid POS that I bought years ago that just never worked well. What a breath of fresh air when I finished installation and powered this unit up for the first time. I was used to a head unit that would take almost a minute to boot up and enter user mode. Comparatively, this unit boots up, finds my iPhone on bluetooth and automatically starts playing in a bout ten seconds. This sounds like a simple function, but my old Parrot unit made you push a button, turn a dial, select bluetooth, THEN press another button to start playback EVERY TIME IT BOOTED UP! Don't get me started. . . Another thorn in my paw with the old unit was sound quality. Parrot may know how to design bluetooth devices, but they have NO idea how to process and playback audio. There were always unnatural artifacts in the audio stream such as pumping, breathing, rumbling and thumping, not to mention a brash and brittle high end. To the contrary, the 720 is another excellent example of Pioneers' decades of designing and building some of the best sounding and best performing head units on the market. The sound is clear, well balanced, and has no oddball artifacts in the audio to pollute the music. It just delivers a clean, well-balanced audio signal to your speakers.
Pros: * Clean, clear sound. No noise or unwanted artifacts. * Easy to use and set up. No heavy manual reading. * Adjustable color schemes allow easy match to any car's dash illumination. * Excellent bluetooth operation. Starts playing music within 10 to 15 seconds of startup. * Can be set to dim the display with the dashboard lights. * Source level adjustment allows you to adjust for too-quiet or too-loud sources. * 5-band EQ plus 3-level loudness contour, as well as adjust
Cons: * Single line display means a lot of scrolling. Could have been much better with two or three lines. * No elapsed time on track info display. You can switch to an elapsed-time only display, however (nit-picky). * Main display can be difficult to see in bright sun, just like every other stereo head unit on the market.
The main reason for replacing my factory stereo, which was working fine & sounded great, was because I wanted an aux or usb port to play song files. Mine only had a CD player & a cassette player. I didn't really need another CD player...I haven't even owned a CD in years, but I still ended up buying this one just because of the light show & price, lol. I love the lights & colors, but the sound is pretty awesome too! I didn't even change the factory speakers & it sounds amazing! It was pretty easy to install. The only problem I came across was the blue/white wire on the stereo...there's only one, but it's supposed to trigger either an amp or a power antenna. My car has a power antenna & apparently has a factory amp too, because when I connected just the antenna, there was power to the stereo, but no sound. So it was either go without my antenna or go without sound, so I just connected both to the blue/white wire & now everything works...so far. There was nowhere in the instructions where it said you could hook them both up together, but there was nothing saying you shouldn't either. I'm definitely not an expert, so I don't know.
Pros: Awesome looking, amazing sound, great price
Absolutely Beautiful head unit. Pioneer in all of my vehicles. Only downside is difficulty figuring out the interface. Still have yet to figure out how to brighten the screen as bright sunlight can easily make the screen unreadable.
Pros: Beautiful. Fits perfectly into vehicle. Sounds awesome. Love all the features i.e. bluetooth, USP, Aux.
Cons: Difficulty figuring out controls. Screen brightness control.
Easy install. Still learning all the features.
Pros: Like the available features.
I bought this unit to install in a 2002 Toyota Tacoma Truck I just got. I packed my cd's away 7 years ago, all my music is digital and on my I-pod.The install was a half hour on the bench soldering the wires together for the adapter harness and then wire nuts & tape. the actual install in the truck was not quite an hour and went very smooth. Kudo's to Crutchfield they make this easy and the install guide is excellent. As to the unit itself very nice looking and you can change the lighting leds to match your dash & interior. The menu's are easy to navigate and setup.This made the speakers come alive, I have it set for vocals with +1 on bass and favoring the rear speakers +1 . My music runs from sixties oldie's to seventies rock and a lot of singer songwriter songs.I ordered a sans ultra memory stick to load the music on. When in the unit it only sticks out 1/ 4 of an inch and holds 32 gig , I have over four thousand songs loaded in three folders Oldies,Country and all my favorites. I cannot say enough nice things about this receiver if you buy it you won't be disappointed.
Pros: Great looking ,wonderful features
I am rating the sound quality at a 3 only because I haven't upgraded my car speakers and I can't listen to the stereo at it's full capacity.
Pros: LOVE IT! It is easy to use and sync's perfectly with my Samsung, I just hop in and start the car...the stereo plays where it left off on my phone.
Cons: The rear bracket that came with the unit so it would fit in my car didn't have a clear place to attach it. It didn't prevent me from installing the stereo nor has it affected it adversely.
Looks good and sound good too
Pros: Great radio
This is a nice car system that works well for updating OEM systems. The unit has great sound and easy to use functions including blue tooth for phone conections.
The only complaint would be the operating instructions are a little hard to understand.
Pros: Excellent value, sounds great! Looks cool too. Easy to install.
Cons: Instructions, for operating
Lots of features on this unit. Crutchfield install kit made it an easy and clean installation. I am very happy with this purchase!
I bought this for my daughters Subaru to replace the factory installed stereo. Customer service was excellent,as always. They made sure I had everything I was need to make the install correct and easy as could be. It did not take much time and everything fit properly. I purchased the Pioneer because I've had them in the past. The sound quality is pretty good. My daughter wanted the Bluetooth capability. She is very happy with that. Linked right up with her iPhone . Good voice clarity, She said its easy to use. She likes the optional color backgrounds. She has experimented with its many options and has personalized it to her specific needs and desires. I would recommend it to everyone.
Pros: Not very difficult to install, many options for customization, Bluetooth capability with steering wheel controls. Great tech support! And a happy kid.
Cons: She has been very happy with everything so far.
This is my first purchase of a Pioneer stereo and I am very impressed with this unit. I am not an audiophile. I was simply looking for a good price on a great sounding unit. I did not want to change the look of my vehicle, so fitting the existing spot was important. I have to say that I think this unit delivered everything I was looking for and even more. The installation was very simple. Operation is pretty easy to figure out and to top it all off it is a great value. I really expected the Bluetooth setup to be more difficult. When I finished, all I could say was "That's it??"
Pros: Value, Bluetooth, Easy installation & setup.
Cons: None that I have found.
Great value for the price. Easy install and setup. Thanks Crutchfield for a great online purchase. You ROCK.
Pros: Great product at a great price.
Great receiver from the van. Sound was great and controls are easy to use. For what I paid for it,I feel like it was a great deal. Blue tooth synced pretty fast and works good. Calls through the receiver are great. Just a good cd player with blue tooth. Really like it and Pioneer I have always had good luck with. Crutchfield had a great price and great customer service.
Pros: Blue tooth. Display colors change or go with stock to match factory color. Call quality is great. Cd player is solid.
Cons: None, it has alot of different functions. So some people might see that as a con. Once you figure out what they all do,it really is easy to use.
You can't miss with this one for function and value. Huge upgrade over my stock head unit and the Bluetooth is seamless and sounds great with my iPhone 6. I spent a lot of time comparing to JVC, Clarion, Alpine and Kenwood entry level double DIN...in the end I simply bought on price. Great news is that it is perfect form my needs
Pros: Bluetooth connectivity is seamless with iphone 6. Easy to answer, hold and hang up. Estimate 2-3 seconds between ending call and resumption of streaming music from phone.
Cons: Menu to adjust equalizer is too complex. It's buried with illumination, etc. There's lots of real estate wasted without an easy "Audio" button to tweak bass and treble.
looks and sounds great. easy install. works well with my galaxy s6
The unit works well in my 2000 Accord. Initially I had a problem because the manual didn't say what color wires went to what, but Crutchfield customer support was awesome. They told me which wires matched and everything was fine. Even the steering wheel controls work. It's the most helpful and comprehensive customer support I've ever used.
Pros: Bluetooth works really well with my Samsung Galaxy 6 and Spotify. Phone calls are good too. Sound is clear and microphone picks up well.
Cons: Can't find a color to exactly match the backlight. Being made of plastic, the buttons feel light and cheap, as if they might break if you push on them too hard.
Simple easy install. Great buy for the money. Way better than OEM.
Pros: Looks, sound, install, Bluetooth.
I bought this for my wife's car after putting a JVC in mine. This one is way nicer and didn't cost much more. It was easy to install (minus the steering wheel adapter) and easy to program.
Pros: Easy to install, selection of baground lighting.
Cons: Nothing so far
Unit has great sound. Very easy to install
Replaced factory unit. Has all the bells and whistles one could ask for
Pros: ease of use, style, sound
Cons: needed additional tools to make it fit properly...fortunately I had them
Indash gives easy clear install allows multiple settings for lighting adjustment hands free is easy to use Bluetooth clear and sets to multiple devices.
Pros: Bluetooth easy to use and set up multiple devices saved and switched between. Sound clear and mixer adds to entertainment value between songs. 3mm port helps with retaining the steering wheel controls. Adjustable lighting that can b dimmed at night but bright enough during the day. Overall a great unit!
Cons: Remote is small and easily misplaced but who needs it anyway. Voice commands could be on unit instead of through the phone but for the price who can gripe..
A little easter to install than I thought. Excellent support from Jenny.
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: A little more expensive than I wanted to spend for a "fishing" truck.
It looks great! I prefer physical controls over the touch interface. I find touch interface to be sluggish. This device looks great in my car and made my older toyota feel much newer. The amber lighting looks very nice with my faux wood dash.
All the functions and features I needed
Pros: Product quality for the price, ease of installation
Cons: A tad tricky to program
Upgraded the stock stereo in my daughter's 2002 XTerra. Harness and adapter connected with no problems, maintaining steering controls. Bluetooth streaming works great. Line level install instructions were a little lacking. Everything else was great.
This was a xmas present for my 19 yr old son. Absolutely loves it...cd,Bluetooth,aux in for his iPhone 6! Couldn't be a happier kid. It was an easy install with the provided dash bracket and wiring harness!
Pros: Easy install, great sounding system,looks great !
Good unit for a good price
Pros: Good sound n flexibility to contour n set up your own custom settings. All around good unit for the price
Cons: Radio reception could be a bit stronger n have some more settings but all in all not to bad..
Easy to install with a perfect factory look fit. I really like the sound and the Bluetooth works perfectly with my iPhone6. Thanks Crutchfield!
Excellent radio for the money. I bought it and installed it as a Christmas present for my sister. Her used Forester did not have built in Bluetooth phone or audio. This radio adds both of those features and greatly improved the sound quality of the radio over the stock model. Installation was easy, but there were some aspects that could have been made clearer.
Pros: Price, Sound clarity, Bluetooth features
Cons: Installation for Subaru could have been clearer. Some parts included that were not necessary.
Very happy with this unit so far from what i have used so far. Took a few calls and Bluetooth audio from my mobile device. Overall happy with this product and definitely recommend it.
Pros: Easy to use, was pretty much simple to install
Cons: slight blip in bluetooth where i hear a sudden audio blip and then goes away. This could be the Bluetooth from my phone though.
A lot of deck for the money looks nice. Has a 1000 color combs in deck. You can lock it into one color once you navigate though the menu. The sound is nice .Bass is heavy and you can tweak it in custom setup or go with presets. Its nice to use Blue tooth or USB or input to excess all your music sources.I like to use a large memory stick and store and update 1000s of songs on stick and have it all with me no matter which car I am in. I have another Pioneer DVD dash unit in Motor home so for me the memory sticks a solid library on the move with me. The Focus st has a factory sub in the trunk and with the proper wiring from Crutchfield sent that made the whole install easy along with a adapter wire that was a snap to connect to factory amp to sub. I have found its best t shop price but when you buy from Crutchfield they send for free all the items to make the install a snap plus a call center to assist if you get confused as I did with where to wire in the adapter wire for sub, On a 5 min call made me me understand it all simply. In closing you cant beat the whole package that comes in one price. Pioneer stuff is top shelf.
Pros: perfect fit with installation products. Was easy to install in 05 focus with factory ford subw in focus st. Cruchfield provided all the right wires ti make everything a snap. Sound is great unit looks good in dash
Cons: There is a lot to learn to get through menu to set all settings or understand just where they are. Same with lightning . After playing with it for an hour you get it but if your not a tinker around and play with stuff kind of person then it gets a little frustrating at first but its all good in the end.
My wife immediately fell in love with this . It'll take a few days to figure out all of the settings and capabilities , but she already loves the bluetooth hands free phone and being able to play media from her smartphone . She posted a pic online and now a friend wants the same radio . Outstanding buy and simple installation with the kit that Crutchfield provides . I had to call support on a Sunday to ask about one of the connections and I had an answer immediately . No wonder I keep coming back over the years .
Pros: Simple installation , you just have to know how to take you specific vehicle apart . Crutchfield had the exact adapters I needed . Great sound . Much better than the stock radio . Awesome capabilities . Hands free phone , stream music from Pandora or from files on your phone . Looks great , you can set the display up in many colors and combinations . Really reasonable price . Outstanding "bang for the buck" . Made my wife happy , which makes me happy .
Cons: Pioneer didn't supply a User's guide , and the color coding and legend of their harness was a bit difficult to decipher , while the Metra adapter had clearly decipherable coloration and labeling .
Great radio. Sound quality is very good. Installed in a 2000 Tundra with no problems. Bluetooth connection features were not very clear but eventually we paired our iPhones with the unit and it works well. Voice recognition for calling is easy.
Pros: Great product, good sound quality, nice features!
Great system. Blends in with a perfect factory look.
Pros: Great prices with plenty of features.
this was a Christmas gift for my daughter and she absolutely loves it
Very nice radio.
Pros: Easy to install and use. Great price.
Excellent stereo for the money. Great sound.
Super quick shipping and an awesome stereo
Bought it for my wifes Honda Odyssey. She absolutabsolutely loves everything about it.
Pros: Everything about it!
I was nervous it would not compare to my factory Bose system in my 1999 Infiniti QX4. However, using the accessories recommended during purchase, all installed perfectly without any issues. The sound was very nice upon initial power ON. It took a few days to get the EQ set up to where I like it. Navigating the menus is a learning process.
Pros: Great sound. Cool lights. I love the Bluetooth feature. Phone calls hands free via the radio is just too cool.
Cons: Navigating the menus feels awkward. I naturally want to push the volume knob to turn radio Off, but that's not how it works. It prolly took me 10 minutes to figure out how to power it Off. I know, that's what instructions are for, right? I have yet to read them. Lol. I will one day.
awesome radio cool features
I had been to another retailer and online trying to figure out Bluetooth hands free Android compatible Stereo, wiring harness, and steering wheel stereo control wiring harness. Then I went Crutchfield to what fits my car and it list everything you need and sends the instructions with order email on how to connect. The price with everything I needed was same prices as the radio as the others. The installation was so simple on the xD. Wired everything according to instructions which is really color matching wires. Everything worked including the steering wheel controls. Awesome. Stereo selected Pioneer FH-X720BT. Sound is great, Connect my work phone and my personal phone. Voice quality is great. I used Google Play and download my purchased songs to my sdcard. Sound is awesome through Bluetooth.
Pros: Crutchfield help get exactly what I need. Pioneer FH-X720BT looks and sounds great, works excellent
This was everything I wanted for my husband, and so much more too! The color displays are awesome and it was easy to install and use!
Pros: Lots of different color displays to choose from, handy remote, Bluetooth capable with hands free calling, easy install.
Muy buena compra. Fácil de manjar y mejora la estética del auto. Excellent buy. It's easy to use and it improves the look of the car.
Cons:Crutchfield response on 12/25/2015 Translation provided by Crutchfield's International Sales & Support team.
quality will be determined in time but everything is great so far.
Pros: Sounds great, can't beat the features or the price.
Cons: Not the best for tailoring the sound; bass-mid-treble
Great unit, very easy to use and all the features make hooking up to my iPad a breeze....highly recommend this to anyone that is looking to upgrade their head unit.
Pros: Great features
Cons: None at this point
Radio sounds great and was easy to install. The only complaint is the display is hard to see in bright sunlight, other than that is is a great radio.
Pros: Great sound an features
Cons: Din display in direct sunlight
Easy install, works great with my iPhone 5, great Bluetooth connectivity, phone feature works great, just what I was looking for...
Pros: Ease of use
Cons: Recessed install
Great product for the price. Easy to install. Manual concise. Cool factor with the color display
Pros: Ease of installation with Crutchfields install kit and expertise
Saw this stereo system in my brother-in-laws Hyundai & was sold. My wife bought this for me for my 2003 Ford Explorer. The sound quality is second to none. It has given life to the truck, I am more than pleased.
Pros: Sound quality, Bluetooth capabilities and ease of use make this a sound product not to mention all the features with a reasonable price.
Replaced the factory stereo in my 2004 Tundra. Hunter from Crutchfield took my info and recommended this receiver. I am beyond satisfied in all areas.
Pros: Great Pioneer quality and sound, color customization, great fit and looks really good in the dash, simple install.
Bought this receiver to replace a busted Mach 460 deck in a Ford Mustang. Speakers were fine, so only the receiver was replaced. With wiring harness and 12v-5v adapter, it wired up easily and plugged in perfectly. Installation took less than an hour, including crimping the wires. Audio quality is significantly better, and this is a good test of the receiver because all other components stayed the same. All the bells and whistles you can want: Aux port, USB port, Bluetooth, multiple display modes and colors. Audio is extremely customizable. Do your homework on high pass filters and subwoofer eq settings. It took me a lot longer to get the audio quality dialed in than to install it. Now I have great sound at a great price!
Pros: Great audio quality, easy install, multiple features, and great value.
Cons: Instructions don't explain the audio settings. Not just your basic treble, mid, and bass. You will have to do your homework to dial it in.
This stereo has everything that you need blue tooth aux usb has light show you can customize I would highly recommend this unit
Pros: Usb aux Bluetooth and good price
This Pioneer receiver is the cream of the crop. It smoothly integrates with my mobile, the included directional mic works flawlessly with Siri and with minimal noise for those who receive my calls, and the sound is great! Installation of the receiver was simple and effortless with the most work being the crimping of wires together for the wire harness. Everything else was a cinch! If I had to make one knock against the system, it would be that the Mixtrax mode is not all that it is cracked up to be (though I really wasn't expecting anything spectacular from it). It is a neat feature, to be sure, but not a reason to buy this product. Everything else is the reason to make a purchase when it comes time to upgrade your car's sound system.
Pros: Clear sound, easy to use, included directional microphone is excellent, smooth installation, looks cool
Cons: Mixtrax is meh
Great for a simple factory replacement. It made the factory speakers come alive.
Pros: Great value for the price. I got it on sale for 119.99. Greatly improved sound over factory head unit. I thought I was going to have to replace the speakers also, but once Installed this head unit the factory speakers came to life.
Cons: It serves its purpose. I was merely trying to replace the factory radio because the face got damaged. As a factory replacement it does great. However I would not use it to run a higher end audio setup.
Fit perfect w/out the kit. Looks great & display colors available match my vete's display perfectly. Only issue was with connector purchased... It was about 10ft longer than needed....stuffed it away in rear storage. Works & looks like it was always there.
Pros: Perfect fit. Sound is great. Looks good.
Cons: Connector cable purchased separately was way too long.....worked w/ it.
I love love love this receiver. Installed it in my 2008 Toyota corolla. It was really easy to install for me. Had to buy some tools to make it easier but it was straight forward from there. The Pioneer guide and manual was pretty useless for install but thanks to crutchfield for providing the additional guide, harness and dash kit. The bluetooth works great and the sound quality is clear. Have no problems with pairing. Great investment.
Pros: Ease of Install. "Coolness Factor" . Hands free calling. Decent price point
Cons: None yet
I have had this stereo since May15, worked well for a couple of months then my display would go on and off. when it went blank I could tap on the screen and it would come back on. After numerous emails to Pioneer customer service they wanted me to drive an hour and 45 minutes to a repair facility. I wanted them to send me a new unit along with a box to send them back the old, faulty unit. They haven't responded to my 2 emails yet and I don't think they will.
Pros: Just an ok unit, if I had to do it all over again I would buy a Kenmore or Sony. The display is nice and the multiple color option is cool. Hard to see in the daylight though even when brightness is turned all the way up.
Cons: Customer service is terrible. I also had a hard time getting the exact quality of sound in my unit. I would go with a larger equalizer.
Pioneer claims to supply an instruction manual; this is actually a list of features with a casual discussion of where the feature attributes are located in the menus. 9 out of 10 complaints on forums are due to the nearly useless instructions. Understanding features will require hours searching the internet for hints from owners and in reviews. If you purchase one of these expect many hours to research and experiment to understand how the features can be controlled and adjusted. Ratings: Bluetooth; Pioneer seems to have a problem with Bluetooth connectivity. This may be due to manufacturing defects as some owners report good results. In my case I have a phone that will connect with a 5 yr old BlueAnt hands free device over 20 feet away through multiple walls; but not to a Pioneer stereo from 1 foot. Will pair but will not connect for any function . Sound Quality seems v.good Ease of Use: no instructions worth reading Coolness: don't really care but coolness would be better if I could set the feature attributes Build Quality: unknown with out long term experience My 30+ years experience with product design, manufacturing and quality systems makes me suspect this is a low cost design with low cost manufacturing, from a company giving limited attention to customer experience.
Pros: Long list of features
Cons: No instruction on how to use features; suspect design and manufacturing quality
Easy installation & setup...paired up with all devices nicely. Bought as gift for my Wife...she loves it.
Pros: Solid, nice looking, flexible operation, and easy to install & setup.
Cons: none noted
I like th radio. It'll take a little bit to figure out all the features. However, I saw it on another site a few days after it arrived for less.
I bought this to replace the failed CD player/radio in my '07 Mustang. I would never buy this radio again and I'm very disappointed in Pioneer. It seems the main attraction is the stupid flashing lights - definitely not the radio. Its hands-free Bluetooth capability is totally unreliable with my Samsung Galaxy phone. When switching bands/modes on radio it insists on showing you a light show on each button push before it acts on your button push ... definitely not desirable while driving! Pioneer designed this for the visual whiz factor - not for a useful car radio. If you want a Pioneer spend $100 more and get better quality.
Cons: Cheap and unreliable construction. Unreliable hands-free. Too much focus on glitzy flashing lights and not on basic radio performance.
Great price for a really nice stereo.
Pros: Price point Quality product Good brand name Great support
Cons: Ease of use, as there is so much this stereo can do, but only a limited number of buttons.
Looks great. The many colors make it easy to match dash lights. Changing menus is difficult. Can't access contacts easily. Good value with negatives
Pros: Great looking, price
Cons: Very hard to use. Designed for I phones
I'm glad I ordered through Crutchfield because they offered the exact kits needed to complete the installation. The steering wheel controls were a little tricky to hook up, otherwise, everything was easy. My only beef is the microphone isn't integrated in the unit, you have to snake a wire through your car through the back of the unit and hook it to something. Works pretty nice, my kids love the flashing colors of the unit when a call comes in.
Pros: Great price, and great sound. Big improvement on factory stereo.
Cons: Wired microphone needs to be snaked through your car.
Easy install as always when purchased from Crutchfield I am very pleased with the amount of features for the money
Pros: Ease of installation Great value
Cons: Sound not quite what I expected
Improved sound quality over stock. Like the ability to adjust sound
Pros: Customizable color , simple controls, blue tooth
This unit has really good sound for the price! Installed in my 2007 Jeep wrangler with a little bit of work. Didn't work when I first turned it on, but I had not attached the "black box" that came with the wiring harness. That is a Must Do! Otherwise it has been a great unit after being installed for a few weeks.
Good sound quality with good value
Great unit for the money. Every feature I need and nothing I don't. Installation was OK.
Pros: design, interface, placements of the buttons etc.
Cons: Display could be bigger with better resolution.
Nice unit with good sound
Pros: Easy function control and the Bluetooth works flawlessly.
Cons: Dust magnet on the front face. Have to clean it twice a day.
Great stereo for the price. Nice clear sound.
I bought a new used F250 and needed to upgrade the base factory stereo in order to get bluetooth phone and a few more modern features. I don't use the truck enough to justify a stereo with Nav or Carplay or even Sirius XM. So this Pioneer was right at the sweet spot. The installation was very simple, once I figured out to match the Pioneer harness to the Crutchfield harness color-by-color (doh!). One didn't quite match (orange-white vs. solid orange) but the guys at Crutchfield were there with the quick answer ("Yes, connect them.") and also answered a few other questions I had. Once installed, everything works just like stock, down to the ability to pick the display color that matches my F250. Extremely happy, and a great value.
Pros: Exact features needed; improved sound over factory; bluetooth phone and A2DP; Pioneer quality.
The build quality is very nice.
Pioneer quality as usual, great features and good price point.
This is an excellent replacement for factory stereo especially if you wanna upgrade your ride with some Bluetooth. It definitely pushes more power than the factory GM stereo I had. If you have decent factory speakers, this unit will supply them with plenty of power to operate to their full potential.
Pros: Tons of features. You can make it any color you want to match your dash illumination. Plenty of power for factory speakers. Bluetooth mic works well. Installation went unbelievably smooth. Reasonably priced. Looks great. It's a pioneer !
Cons: If you don't have tinted windows, the display is kinda hard to see in broad daylight.
Excellent product. Very happy with the sound and features of this unit. Although I did not have the Bose upgrade in my Envoy, this unit made the stock speakers sound as though I do! Install was a breeze with the RadioPro 5 interface and installation kit suggested by Crutchfield. Hands free phone operation with Android phone is very easy and works perfectly. Would recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade their stock head unit.
Pros: Excellent sound, bluetooth connection and Ipod integration. Hands free phone operation is a breeze.
Cons: None yet!
I really enjoy the help your team helped me with the display is a little dark during the day but love the sound. installation was super easy..just need to take some time to go through all the option and functions...
Pros: great sound for the value. fits perfectly in the truck.
Cons: hard to see the display in the daylight hours
Good stereo but now i need better speakers because these stock speakers arent any good lol.
It's a great product, the price was a bit too high, though. It's cheaper elsewhere but Crutchfield has the customer support and most if not all of your car audio needs. I bought it for a 2002 Mercury Cougar with a 2-DIN stock in it.
Pros: Radio is great. Lighting is great the fact that it doesn't have some kind of controls that I can mount on my steering wheel bugs me a bit, but I don't really care, I got a product that does the same as a more modern base model radio. Bluetooth, Aux, came with a mic that's long enough for you to run from the top of your rearview mirror down to your dash(you have to get it around your windshield and onto the side panel then down below the steering wheel console and the. into a hole going to dash.
Cons: Did't know the specific size of it but it was standard 2-DIN. had to carve my radio mount in my dash, smoothen it up with a file and some sanding paper, didn't have a clue what to do with the metal bracket that was holding my old radio in place since it held the parts below the dash. had to stick a knife above the bracket to give the new radio some kind of platform to slide into and then POOF, slid right it. Tight fit. Took me a good 5 hours to do it though. didnt regret it.
Can't really give it any stars, as I can not use it. I ordered a bundle that Crutchfield put together for my Ford Focus. The advisers did not tell me that I would have to cut my dash for it to fit.
Cons: Might have to cut dash for it to fit.
Very ease to install and use. Crutchfield provides great instructions. the hands free with the phone is what I love. the illumination could be better. a great radio for the price.
Pros: hands free feature
It has been a great stereo so far. I had some issues trying to get it to locate ipod. Once I got it to recognize the Ipod. It has been working like a champ.
It sounds great and the controls are easy to use. I like the colored lights, too. I am not a handy guy, but thanks to Crutchfield, installation was a breeze. I emailed a couple of questions and received prompt answers. This is a great unit to replace your factory stereo.
Pros: Easy to use, sounds great
Cons: Volume knob doesn't stick out far enough for easy grabbing.
The receiver is great, it fit perfect with the kit, arrived on time, absolutely no complaints
I recently purchased a replacement car audio system from crutchfield for my 2004 Chevy Colorado. What a great buyer experience, crutchfield took all the guesswork out of which system best fit my needs and provided all the gear to do the install myself. The instructions were specifically for my vehicle and made the job so easy especially for a novice car audio guy like me. I did it in just a few hours and it looks and sounds like a factory install if I do so say so myself.
Pros: Website, selection, shipping, customer care, instructions the list goes on and on
I purchased this for my VW Jetta and it is a great upgrade!! The only issue was the W/R and Mic ports on the back of the deck were defective and I am currently waiting for a replacement unit to be sent... assuming it works then this would be a 5 star review!
Pros: colors and sound
Cons: ports defective on the back and it's slightly complicated to use
I bought a 2010 Chevrolet Traverse for my wife. I really do hate factory radios so I purchased this radio. The color scheme and the price was great. Ive had pioneer radios since the early 90s and have never been disappointed. Thank you Pioneer
Pros: Great sound and look
Cons: Read the manual so you can learn how to use some of the functions. I always trash them but with this one you really need it to figure out the secret functions that it is capable of.
I purchased the unit in February. Crutchfield did an excellent job of delivering the order fast. The unit worked well till June. As the days became hot the unit stopped working when l parked the car in sunlight all day long. Next morning it worked well again and the cycle repeated itself. I called Pioneer and was put on hold for 15 minutes. Then I did send the unit to Pioneer for warranty repair and it took them almost a month to return it. Not sure what they did to the unit but it continued to have the same problem so I sent it back to Pioneer for warranty repair again. Its now been three weeks and I called Pioneer again. Pioneer has not even repaired the unit - its waiting to be repaired. I was advised that it takes 2-4 weeks for the repair to be completed. Now I have been without a functional unit for over two months. The combination of a defective unit combined by extremely poor and slow service by Pioneer makes this experience a horrible one. Save yourself the trouble and buy another product from another manufacturer.
Pros: Good design and display
Cons: Poor quality and extremely poor warranty service by Pioneer.
Great Receiver, The Bluetooth Connection with my Samsung phone is within seconds, the audio streaming is great and returns where you were after you turned the car off. The color display is great and you can program it to match your car's dashboard lights.The sound is great and you can customize it. You get a lot more than you expected for the price you pay.
Pros: Very nice looking receiver with lots of features, great quality bluetooth streaming and sound.
Cons: I would like more power, I would like to have the display to show the clock and song/station info at the same time.
Great radio recommended by Crutchfield based on make and model of vehicle and the current technology we wanted in the unit. It fit perfectly with the install kit.
Pros: Fits perfectly and the instructions helped to get old unit out, new unit in. Great sound and easy to use.
Cons: Some work to be done on patch cable in order to use all the features and the remote. I had to strip some wires Not already pre-stripped and use wire nuts and electrical tape to marry up colors. It was easy, but did take some time. After we got the wires dressed up and neatly installed in the dash, the unit fit great and the sound was very good.
Absolutely amazing looks and graphic display. Im a little disappointed that Bluetooth is for making telephone calls only and not streaming music. To stream music, this requires a 3.5mm audio jack (male to male). When factoring this in and needing to have the microphone plugged in, it is a bit cumbersome to switch out. This product is off the charts amazing for the graphic display, but if you are looking to stream music from your phone, its a bit tedious.
Pros: Amazing Display Good sound Bluetooth for Making Phone Calls
Cons: Cannot stream music via bluetooth (requires audio cable) Microphone requires the port for bluetooth calls
Wish the stereo light were stronger. No matter what color, it's not very bright.
First of all, I have no problem with the brightness of the display. I live in Hawaii, do not have tinted windows, and can read the display just fine even with the colors set to match my dashboard illumination (red with blue buttons). What I like most about the Pioneer FH-X720BT are all the features that were missing from my factory stereo. It has three different ways to interface with smartphones: Bluetooth, USB and Aux input on the front. It can play compressed media files, so I can put a whole audiobook or a band's discography on a single CD. Finally, the hands-free calling works perfectly. I chose to install the microphone in the overhead console (difficult cable run) and the other person can hear me clearly. When making an outgoing call, the phonebook comes up on the Pioneer's display and then the music pauses automatically so you can use the speakers for the phone call.
Pros: Programmable illumination colors to match your dashboard, lots of ways to interface with Android or iOS smartphone, hands-free calling is intuitive and has good audio quality
Cons: May have to press the SRC button up to 8 times to get from CD back to radio unless you disable some of the other inputs, unit is 7 inches deep including rear heat sink and would not install flush with dashboard
I am very satisfied with my recent purchase of the Pioneer FH-X720BT. I actually found Crutchfield to be the most inexpensive place to purchase the unit even over audio outlets and auction sites. The Unit itself is pretty user friendly. I did have to consult the manual a couple times to figure out the menu screen operation and to set up Bluetooth. I installed it into a 2003 CRV for my wife and she loves it. She is by no means a techy, but she finds all the features to be easy to use and she is in love with the hands free calling. She is an IPhone user and I am android we have found both platforms interact smoothly as far as Bluetooth audio and Pandora. It looks great and so far so good. It does not deliver the best sound on certain EQ settings but I firmly believe that is because we still have factory Honda speakers. Overall great product for the price
Pros: Looks great and sounds good for the money. Fairly easy to use if you actually read the manual.
Cons: Only 5 preset EQ settings and if you don't read the manual you will be frustrated trying to figure out the menu and settings.
I purchased this for my dad's old 4runner. Its the most upgraded technology in there right now. Overall a great upgrade to factory speakers. It made the sound quality of stock speakers better. Super easy to install but a little difficult going through the menu.
Pros: Easy install. Great product. Great sound quality.
Cons: Going through menu/settings.
if your wanting a new head unit I would highly suggest this unit it's was easy to install and hook up as long as you have the right harness
Pros: easy to hook up
Cons: was a little confusing when mounting but you'll be able to figure it out
Very good sound, ease of installation. Let of bells and whistles and can get confusing, but overall it is good unit
Pros: Bluetooth quality
Cons: can be confusing
Great price fast shipping looks great in my dash.I am very pleased with the sound quality of this stereo.
Pros: Easy to install sounds good and looks awesome at night
Cons: Hard to see in the daytime but that's it
I really like this receiver so far. Very customizable. My only complaint is regarding the brightness during the day. Some colors are easier to see than others, so it's worth testing out which works best.
Pros: Great sounds quality. Bluetooth functionality.
Cons: Difficult to see the display when sun is shining directly on it, even with brightness on high.
It is a very easy to use radio but the installation is a bit hard
Pros: Color is good Easy to use
Cons: Hard to understand in the manual
Very good radio for price
Pros: Great lookin face colors easy to set up blue tooth good sound quality
Cons: Can't dim illumination with dash controll have to do it in settings on radio very hard to see radio display with some colors in day light
Unit sounds good once you get all the controls and audio tuning set just right. Lots of options to tailor your sound. Works well in my 2010 Tundra and looks like factory install. Install was easy and gave me all the functionality I required. Hate that I had to install a separate microphone for the hands-free phone to work right through Bluetooth. Wish it had the option to use the built in microphone of the vehicle. Display is a bit dim and unreadable in daylight. Good unit.
Pros: Looks, Functionality, flexibility.
Cons: Display is a bit dim in bright light and hard to read.
This is a great sounding radio with Bluetooth functionality. Once you have paired your smartphone it connects automatically everytime you start your vehicle. This is the second one I have purchased in as many vehicles and if they continue to make these in the future I will continue to buy them. For the price, a great deal!
This radio is great, except for extremely dim illumination! I cannot reccomend this radio to anyone based on that factor alone.
Pros: Ability to adjust display color to match car interior light. Easily navigated menus for controls.
Cons: The display brightness is to dim for normal daylight conditions. It's very hard to read. Tech support helped ensure adjustment was at maximum, but nothing else they can do.
Check on all different choices and brands for my 99 Nissan Maxima. Decided on this one because of the bells and whistles, (I like bells and whistles!), Was what i expected and more. For the money, it is well worth it. My daughter thinks the changing colors are cool too. Had a question during my wiring job, called Crutchfield and their person on the other end of the phone was very helpful. But then again they always are, that's why I have enjoyed being a customer for years.
Pros: Color selection on the display, using the stereo to make calls and answer calls is easy and I am heard loud and clear. Just a very good stereo from Pioneer.
Cons: Nothing really. Everything I got out of this purchase is what I expected and more. Highly recommend this stereo...
Bought to replace the Hyundai original stereo after an I Phone adapter got stuck in the cassette deck. This Pioneer stereo is so much better than the original it is not even fair to compare.
Pros: Sound, features, ease of use, appearance.
Cons: A little harder to install than I thought but we got through it in a couple of hours. If I installed another one it would probably take 30 minutes.
I had my reservations about replacing my Bose factory deck but the sound quality is very good. I lost my rear controls which were never used and my steering wheel controls, but gained bluetooth, USB, AUX jack, and a remote control. The FM receiver is very strong so certain stations have extended range. It also has CD capability with MP3 disc playback, but with Bluetooth and ipod/ iPhone capabiljties who needs that old technology? Good riddens factory radio!!
Pros: Bluetooth, great sound, expandability, good looks, remote control, highly customizable.
Cons: None so far.
Overall good quality the display is a bit hard to read in the day time but that s a downfall to any dot matrix display with a black background good for the money
Pros: Good sound good Bluetooth connectivity
Cons: Hard to read in the day time
Pretty good for the value. The Pandora connectivity isn't great. It often does not want to connect with the device, it will display network fail. When this happens you can use other apps to play music but not pandora. Usually disconnecting the device and restarting the head unit fixes the issue. There should be an option to just control pandora through the phone.
Pros: Great value
Cons: Pandora interface failed often. An option to just control pandora through your phone would be better in my opinion.
After trying to find the correct bracket that I needed that the previous owner threw away. I eventually got around to installing it. It just blew me away. Sound options are incredible, it looks and operates perfect. It's everything that i've ever wanted in a stereo.
OK, overall it's a good system at a reasonable price. Not a great one, just a good one. A few hours more on the drawing boards would have made this system a really nice one without adding significantly to the cost.
Pros: The BT audio synced right up to my phone. The radio seems to pull in signals better than my factory radio. CD works fine. Front panel aux-in jack works fine. The microphone seems to work pretty well for BT.
Cons: Per-source volume settings should be a given in 2015. When I switch from my mp3 player on the aux in to the USB stick I shouldn't have my ears blasted out. When using a USB stick to play music, m3u files should be supported. Menu navigation is kind of clumsy. The 'off' button should be it's own button, not a press-and-hold on the SRC button. Few of the available colors are bright enough in sunlight. I wanted to set to match the rest of the dash, but the orange is way too dim.
I rate this system very high. We matched the system with the factory amp and speaker and the sound quality is much better than the older infinity system it replaced. We are extremely happy with the Pioneer.
Pros: Great Sound Quality...
Competent at everything you want it to do. Ignore the glitz, it's a good safe buy. Remember if you connect this to a Subaru, there's a purple wire for the car's antenna booster that MUST be connected!
Pros: Bluetooth, clear, loud, & automatic. Almost bright enough to see with sun glasses on. Good sensitivity on FM and AM. Numerous unexplained audio shaping tools. Call Crutchfields for that-
Cons: Don't like 1 knob control and menus! No Treble control / boost, as such. Boomy. there is a Bass boost though. Can't bring out enough highs in the mid range. Set up instructions are as bad as the rest. Tedious- - Styling is for kids.
I bought it, from crutchfield outlet, for a price that could not be beat. Its going in to replace the stock deck of a work car. Works great. For the price, was even better.
Pros: Large, easy to operate, Master Control knob. Knob has a good tactile feel to it.
Cons: The way you scroll through menus as a little bit of a hassle, but its just the way pioneer does the software for the menus, its easy to scroll past the wrong one.
Great unit for the price. Very easy to install and very easy to use.
I installed this in a 2007 Silverado to replace a basic AM/FM Radio. A huge upgrade for cheap money. I ran the mic for the hands-free bluetooth phone through the dash and used velcro to attach it to the right side near the instrument panel...pretty much hidden behind the steering wheel.
Pros: Bluetooth works great for audio and hands-free calling. Brightness can be controlled by the time of day (set a time you want it to dim at night).
Cons: No cons with the radio. The hardest part for my install was using a hacksaw to cut a metal bracket inside the dash to create enough depth for the install.
Easy controls, great colors to adjust and powerful.
Pros: Easy to use, awesome colors.
Cons: It has its moments to connect bluetooth.
The unit was in my price range and had the features that I wanted which was Bluetooth ,USB and AUX front inputs. However the radio tuner is the WORST of any that I have owned and much worse than the factory unit. After installation the reception was so bad that I thought that I had forgotten to connect the antenna lead and removed the unit to verify that in fact the antenna was connected. Also, the display appears to randomly dim itself for no apparent reason which is annoying. I'll check the menu settings to see if the dimming is a user induced problem.
Pros: Price, input features
Cons: Radio reception, menu structure, random display dimming
Tons of features and great "cool factor". You get a lot for the price!
Pros: value value value
Cons: recommended adapters that came separately were sub par...
You get a lot of features for the price with this unit. There are lot of options for configuring the display. Hands free calling works well.
Pros: Features, Hands free calling,
Great radio everything about it is good except its a little difficult tk see the screen diring the day.A little difficult to figure out at first .
Pros: Nighttime viewing
Cons: Hard to see during the day
Close to being a great unit but a few things could be improved. Display is hard to see in day light. Not bright enough, and yes I have the brightness setting all the way up. Could be my specific vehicle ( 04 Ford Exp.) does not shade it very much. The Pandora app has to be hard wired to work, kind of a bummer. Even then it's hard to control with the unit Other than those couple of gripes its works well.
Cons: Display to dim
Great stereo would've gave it a five star but at times it's a little too bright at night kind of distracting
Pros: Perfect stereo great price,BT works great especially when making calls
Cons: Just a lil too bright at night
The sound from this unit is excellent, it connects via bluetooth with my Android phone easily and the microphone picks up my voice well and little road noise where I mounted it at the top of the A-pillar. The only reason I didn't put 5 stars on it was the display is weak in the daytime. I have it set at the highest brightness on white color but the way it is tilted in the Tundra, it get washed out in the daytime sun. However, most important to me is nighttime dimming, and that works great. So, a little bad with a lot of good.
Pros: Sound with stock speakers Bluetooth to Android Playlist control through remote Quality microphone for handsfree calls Display dims well at night
Cons: Display too dim during daytime
Good product and price
I love it!! It's great
Give Bluetooth connectivity, USB connection to other devices. Fun color options to customize to driver's personal preferences. Radio & CD player, but it seems everyone wants to use their devices - which makes this a fantastic radio
Overall a great stereo, and my experience with Crutchfield couldn't have been better.
Pros: Bluetooth integration is perfect with my iPhone 6 (phone and audio) Pandora integration is nice (can use buttons on dash to rate songs) USB port is in front and convenient
Cons: Can be difficult to see screen in sun, even with brightness turned up The "power/off" button is not obvious (press and hold source) The effects are annoying, but can be turned off
I chatted online with Crutchfield and they responded fast. I have a 2000 Celica and the tape player broke. I was using a tape adapter with my iPhone. I told them I am frugal and did not want to spent a lot. They recommended this radio and it is an excellent choice. My pocketbook is not much lighter but I have Bluetooth, USB, and the 1/8" jack for the iPhone. I like the physical controls but they could label them better and apply a more intuitive software functionality. Anything I need to break out the manual for I will call "not truly intuitive." I like the idea of the master menu button, but I had to read the manual to understand certain things, such as all menu items are not available at all times but only menu items that apply to the current input are available. The display is truly migraine inducing for me. It took a while to shutoff all of the flashing effects and color changing. I wish manufacturers would be more cognizant that as some people love the flashing lights, for others it can actually be painful. The radio sounds great. It is not a lot louder than the factory stereo but it sounds extremely clear.
This unit is an amazing one. I would really recomend this to any one looking to replace their factory unit out. Its really light easy to install and just overall amazing. Although i had one small problem that was adressed by tech support. Which was that the system was a little bassier then i liked but i fixed it and now sounds great. It was also a bit smaller then i thought. But hey for the price its a superb deal. 5/5 would buy again.
Pros: Its not heavy, the illumomation matches my dash, easy to navigate.
Cons: Little bassy in the beging but that was fixed. And it was also a bit smaller then i anticipated.
Pioneer does it again - great equipment at great value. I put this one in the 2007 Chevy Colorado I just bought used with the awful factory FM/AM radio only stereo. I left the stock speakers, yet it still sounds much better. The unit offers lots of great features, and gives you lots of choices as far as inputs are concerned. Aux, Bluetooth, USB, FM/AM, CD, etc. I prefer to use my Android smartphone with Bluetooth. It displays song info, and I can play/pause/skip when using Spotify on my phone. Other goofy features like color changing and a remote are appreciated. It does include a microphone for Bluetooth calling but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. The acessories and instructions from Crutchfield were clear and useful. Everything worked great the first time around.
Pros: Pioneer Quality Great Sound Many Inputs
So far had this for more then two months. Looks awesome and it took about 5mins to install since I had the connect already setup for poionner. I love the fact that it makes a DJ style of music listening.
Pros: Build quality Looks bad (good) Love the colors Easy to install
Cons: None so far (:
I really like this radio. It was everything that I desired for my 2008 hummer h3. The price was good and the ship time was very acceptable.
I have now owned a couple Pioneer car stereos. I have been pleasantly surprised by each of them. This one in particular. I have been looking for a unit that would work with my Nokia Lumia Windows 8.1 phones. I installed this stereo, completed the simple install, entered the Bluetooth settings and my phone was auto detected. Pressed accept on the phone and it was connected. Went to Bluetooth audio and it started playing the music on my phone. Press forward and it actually advanced one song. Backward the same. I am very pleasantly surprises as the Windows Phone was not listed on the iPhone and Android. That being said there are even more features available for those phones.
Pros: Easy install. Works with Windows Phone 8.1 for voice dial, music via Xbox music. Multiple color screens available with deferent combinations.
Cons: There is not a lot of information available on the features of this stereo. Figuring out the illumination settings took trial and error. Only basic functionality is presented in the manual.
I've had several different stereos from several different makers and this one tops them all. This is the second time I've bought it too. I had it in a car I owned a couple of years ago and then when I sold the car, it went with the car. I bought a Kenwood to go in my work vehicle, and it just wasn't the same quality as the Pioneer. I finally bought this again and it's as amazing as the first time I owned it. My friend got one because he liked mine so much. My brother is also going to get one because of how easy it is to use and the quality of the product. Really, I can't rave enough about this. The Blue Tooth is great, the construction is solid. . Just all around a great purchase. Pioneer might have a life-long loyal customer now. It's just not worth it to venture out of what I know and what I'm happy with. So, Pioneer it is.
First time buying an aftermarket radio and can say im not diappointed.
Pros: Many cool specs Many colors
Cons: Hard to see during daylight sometimes.
Still getting used to the head unit. It looks cool and sounds great. Can read display clearly.
Pros: Great unit for a Great price
Cons: none that i can find.
Overall I am impressed with this system, setting all the features takes longer than the install. my wife loves the bt.
Pros: I am really impressed with the bt the sound quality is better than my son in laws brand new car
Cons: There was a second wire harness to the back of the unit now the DIC will not hold info
Over all a great unit so far , Love it !
Pros: It should do all I ever wanted when it comes to a indash system , tell more after the speaker installation .
Cons: Had too get it all ironed out without the instructions to install , the Cructhfield Rep. said he put in the order for the installation instructions . Well didn't get them , relied on UTube Videos to get me over the Hump . No instruction for the speaker in install either . Have a friend that's a car dealer that going to give me a little help with them .I should have called Cruthfield about this , but didn't open box and really check to see that they were not in there until a couple of day beforeCrutchfield response on 6/17/2015 We're sorry to hear that you had some difficulty with the installation.

I bought one of these for my 2005 Subaru Forester. I was prepared for a little wiring between the factory harness and pioneer plug, no problems there. The sound quality improved so much from the factory stereo that I noticed my blown speakers and ordered some from crutchfield later. The buttons don't always depress when "clicked", that was the only build quality knock, but its minor. The bluetooth connects great with my iphone 5S and girlfriend's iphone 6. Although callers have told me I sound a bit different on their end, not a big deal though. Overall, what my 2005 vehicle lacked, that most new cars today have(2015), I would say its a great value. I'm talking phone integration/charging, bluetooth compatibility, and great audio output for your casual audiophile. We liked it so much in my car that I bought one for my girlfriend's 2004 Nissan Xterra and now she has the same updated features. Great value.
Pros: Modern tech, good audio output, phone integration, overall value
Cons: 4/5 build quality
A good radio for the price.
Pros: Color changes are fun
I bought this head unit 2 weeks ago for my 2012 Lancer Gt. I still have factory speakers and this head unit brings my speakers to life, it has all kinds of colors to choose from and the Bluetooth speaker it come with is great everyone I talk to on it says they can hear me better then factory and can't hear any road noise. Only problem I have is can't really see the display during the day unless it's cloudy, other then that great head unit it's easy to use and would recommend this to anyone.
This is a pretty good replacement for the factory stereo in my 2007 Nissan Xterra. Hooking up an iPod Touch and connecting my iPhone with Bluetooth was very easy. The only complaint I have is that it is very hard to see the display in the bright sunlight. If it's cloudy, I can see it but it could be brighter. I had no trouble seeing the display on the factory unit.
Pros: iPod and iPhone connectivity
Cons: Hard to see display in daylight
Works well in my sons 2002 Chevy Monte Carlo. I was expecting a little more sound but it more suits his needs. The feature set on this head unit is very good and works well with his iPhone 5.
Pros: Value, Bluetooth, phone integration
Cons: Sound lacks real punch
Installed perfectly in my 2006 Corolla. Used the Metra wiring harness that came with my order from Crutchfield. Took me about an hour. The instructions from Crutchfield made it really easy. The radio takes a bit of a learning curve to learn the various menus and things. The lighting effects look really cool at night.
Pros: - Cool Lighting Effects - Compatible with Siri - Looks and Sounds Great
Cons: - A little bit tricky once you learn the menus and stuff. I keep the manual in the glove box just in case.
Crutchfield makes it really simple with their free wiring harness and installation guide. Took me a bit to get the wiring harness connected, but the rest of the install was a piece of cake. I bought this stereo specifically for the bluetooth and it works great, sounds great, and didn't cost me an arm and a leg. Great stereo, and crutchfield is definitely where I will go from now on for this type of thing.
It was not hard to install and the sound quality is great with the base speakers. It took a little bit of playing to figure out some of the controls but the connection and use of the iPhone was super easy. I am plan to buy another for my other car since it is great to stream music to it.
Pros: Great sound and value
Cons: Controls not really intuitive and I don't like to real manuals.v
This unit installed easily in a 2004 GM vehicle replacing the factory unit to gain Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming. After a couple weeks with it I can say that it works flawlessly on both counts. Bluetooth calls are clear both in and out. Audio streaming sounds great and the display gives me track and Artist info from my iPhone 6Plus when streaming from both iTunes or when using Spotify. Other reviewers said operation was difficult but I found that with a quick read through the manual controls are pretty intuitive and can easily find what I need. For the price I can't really say anything negative about it as it has met my needs in every way.
Pros: Cost, value, flawless BT operation.
Cons: Display is a little hard to see in bright light but no worse than the factory unit I replaced.
We love the look and sound of our new radio!!!
Very good unit. First Pioneer head unit after using JVC. Happy with how intuitive the unit was to learn. I put this unit in my wife's Suburban. Easy install and it looks and fits well. Steering controls (volume, channel) work well. Bluetooth was primary reason for purchase. Unit connects mine and my wife's Android phones with no problem, and will continue playing audio source, once connection is established. It took a little time and trial to initially connect, but once the link is established, it was smooth sailing. FM/AM, and CD functions work well. I haven't yet tested the aux or USB connections, but expect similar results. The display options are sufficient (how many combos do you really need?) and I like the options on the two line display to always have time available. Overall, very happy with purchase and recommend this unit!
Pros: Great overall value. Bluetooth works well, both for phone calls and to play audio from phone. Phone button is closest to driver/easy to reach.
Cons: Nothing significant. Wish it had more granular audio adjustments (equalizer), but built in are adequate.
Easy to install...great features...love the bluetooth connect...no more Aux cords!
Pros: Easy to install...great features...love the bluetooth connect...no more Aux cords!
Cons: None so far.
This is a great unit. The install was pretty straightforward and it quickly connected to my iPhone 6 through blue tooth. You do want to use a cord if you want a great audio connection for playing music off the phone, but for the use of Siri and the phone part of the iPhone, the bluetooth connection and "SiriConnect" function both work great. The one significant drawback is that the screen is indeed very hard to read in bright light. This is a really unfortunate drawback for what is otherwise an excellent product.
Pros: Easy to install, SiriConnect, BlueTooth, Good Design, Excellent sound quality
Cons: Display difficult to see in bright light
Great radio, has clock, nice remote, and many display options. I had ordered Sound Stream radio but it wouldn't leave a clock on, display was too bright at night, and was very hard to change settings. The sound quality is great on this Pioneer. The tech team at Crutchfield is amazing - if you have any questions give them a call
Pros: price options display remote Bluetooth
Cons: none yet
I was told it would fit my car and work. Well it works but there's no sound when using the DVD player in the back of the car. Even after to call to Customer Support and some advice & another cable it still won't work. The player plays the video but no sound!? That's bad when you have two young kids and no DVD player. Guess I'll have to put the stock unit back in and return or junk it...
Pros: Fits and sounds good....
Cons: Confusing to operate and very dim display during the day; almost invisible. Video but No Sound from the stock DVD player in the back of the car!Crutchfield response on 6/2/2015 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
This unit was easy to install, has lots of good features and produces excellent sound quality.
Pros: Easy to install. Lots of good features. Excellent sound quality.
Cons: none yet
Nice unit, works great Love the color display
This is a great value and does everything I need.
Pros: Interface to my iphone and apps, and bluetooth interface.
Cons: The controls are little complicated and the illumination features are over the top. Once they were tamed, all was well.
So far so good! looks good, sounds good. Bluetooth makes this unit great!
Pros: Bluetooth is a plus, lighting options are great too!
Cons: may take a little bit to memorize the functions
Good for price but much less than I expected from pioneer.
Cons: Not the best display
This unit looks really good in the dash. The lighting options are a plus! Sound quality is right on the mark. The EQ function is a little chincy....but it gets the job done. The menu can be a little difficult to navigate at first....def takes some practice....but once it clicks you'll be fine. Trust that nobody else will be able to change your settings though. :) Bluetooth microphone is clear and crisp (installed in my wife's vehicle so I'm on the receiving end of calls). Overall great buy...easy install...would purchase over again.
Pros: Look Sound Quality Bluetooth function
Cons: Menu Navigation
Great radio, installed in a 2000 Mazda B4000. Had to trim the lips on the top and bottom where you insert the radio and it fit like a glove. Installment instructions are not very clear but it isn't hard to figure out on YouTube. Wires matched up good; I soldered mine and used heat shrink tubing and it's working flawlessly. Great sound quality, and setup instructions are fairly clear. Bluetooth works great, easy to sync and connect.
Cons: None that I've found
My daughter wanted a Bluetooth stereo for her car. Since we were paying for it, we wanted a good value. This unit got good reviews and was in the price range we wanted to spend. Crutchfield lived up to their reputation of giving great installation instructions. Doing it myself saved $190 from what the large electronics store wanted to install the stereo.
Pros: Sounds great and installation was easy. Bluetooth connects quickly and works well. The red lighting matched well with the lights with her car's dash lights.
Cons: This stereo has a lot of customizing but it does need referencing the manual to accomplish.
Pros: Fits like a glove with the recommended fitting kit. Great value for money.
It took a while to find this HU in the sea of double din stereos, but I couldn't be happier with everything this unit comes with. I put it in my F250 with (4) 6" infinity speakers and a slim mount 12" sub and at half volume I can feel the music in my chest. Great buy.
Pros: music quality is really good. Very user friendly. Bluetooth connectivity was seamless. No problems so far.
Cons: when Crutchfield says "dash modification required" they mean it. It wasn't a lot, but more than expected. I did the install myself and it took almost 3 hours to do it right.
I have a 2003 Mercedes 'C' class. The radio didn't work when I bought the car. Dealers quoted $1700 to replace the amp and the cd changer. I threw everything away that Mercedes had put in this car (they have a terrible reputation for complex electrical problems) and replaced with the Pioneer FH-X720BT. A saving of around $1,500!
Pros: Fits like a glove with the recommended fitting kit. Great value for money with a superb customer service dept.
Cons: I think the Mercedes car builders were allowed to use any color of wire they felt like because nothing matches the shop manuals, the Pioneer schematic or the one Crutchfield supplied (they did warn me this may be a problem). A multi- meter is essential to find hot constant and hot on first key position. After that it's simply a case of finding the positive and negative speaker wires.
Great radio. Flows seamlessly with the dash as long as it's installed properly.
Pros: Great sound even with stock speakers.
Cons: Hard to see the display in the daylight because if sun glare. Otherwise great.
Ive had this unit in my car for awhile and its pretty cool. Yes the LEDs get a little old after awhile but this is my first radio with bluetooth and having that feature is probably the nicest thing ever. Navigating through the settings and getting the EQs best for my music was a little confusing but definitely do able. The old radio was a little bigger then this one so i had to get a aftermarket bracket witch was horrible but either way bottom line though great product and i highly recommend this unit.
This stereo was a pretty easy and clean install. I put it in my 2007 chevy cobalt coupe, and with the correct installation gear, it fits very well. I've never installed a stereo before this, but I didn't have any issues with it. The sound quality is better, but I can't tell how much better until I install some new speakers. The lighting is fine and I don't find it too bright at night. Sometimes if the sunlight has a direct hit on it, visibility isn't that great, but that's expected. You can still see what's displayed anyways. I would definitely recommend this unit for anyone looking for a cheap stereo.
Pros: Easy install Good sound quality Clear display
Cons: Surface seems to scratch more easily than i feel it should, but it doesn't bother me too much.
My husband ordered me this radio. Its sounds great, looks great and is super easy to use. The bluetooth sounds amazing.
My factory head unit on my Ford Freestyle ate a CD and the left speakers would cut out when braking?? Time for a savior, so Crutchfield was summoned and fixed me up with the Pioneer FH X720-BT. I wanted BT and Ipod controls and the remote made it easy to forgo the optional steering wheel interface. The money I saved was spent on speakers. Hook up and installation was simple thanks to Crutchfield's easy to follow instructions. I took my time and only got stuck once but a quick call to Crutchfield's support staff got me back on track. I'm impressed with the sound and the features of the X720-BT, my only complaints are the difficult to learn controls and small buttons and on a sunny day the display is hard to read. My daily commute is over an hour and the ability to make/take calls from the road safely is a big plus.
Pros: Multiple platforms, Bluetooth, remote controls instead of steering wheel controls.
Cons: Small buttons, confusing menus, hard to read display when sunny.
I bought this model after reading many reviews, and owning Pioneer products in the past. My car did not have a bluetooth set up and I really wanted one for when I was on the road. Installation went ok in my Prius 2011, some things required a couple phone calls to Crutchfield's tech support but I got them all worked out. I was concerned about the supplied bezel looking good with the OE dash, and it is really not to bad, color was right on. Biggest issue I had was the Axxess steering wheel controller. My volume knobs seem to be mixed up, but the more important switches, the trip and display buttons work fine, go figure, I must have crossed something wrong. Honestly never use the vol buttons anyway so not a big deal. Ran the supplied external mic through the dash and up the A pillar, that went fine and used a double stick foam pad to adhere the mic right near the rear view mirror. After pairing my iPone 4s to the new radio made my first call hands free. It worked really well and the person on the other end reported hearing me fine. Will sync up my wife's phone later to see how well it works with the 2 phones. Ran a USB cable to the front port of the radio and changed the source to APP, at first the radio played my iTunes but when I turned on Rdio it killed the iTunes app and played the internet radio. Sounds great. Speaking of which, it sounds nice, definitely better than the stock HU, now the speakers are really showing their limitations but overall a marked improvement.
Pros: Great sound, great bluetooth, fairly easy install, considering my complete inexperience. Price was ok, I didn't want to spend a lot but I still wanted a better overall experience. And I got great hands free integration with my IOS..
Cons: Some reviewers reported display being dim, and I have to agree, in the Prius which has a big windshield, in bright sunlight, display is very hard to read, not a big issue, but one to make note of.
A nice user friendly unit. Installs easily. Set up is easy if you are familiar with stereos. The display is my only complaint. Too dim in the day light.
bluetooth works very well
This receiver is ok, just ok. It functions. I don't feel there is anything that makes it stand out from any other stereo. You get what you pay for-It's cheap! I wish I could return this radio solely based on the fact that I can't tune to one of my most listened to radio stations 87.7, the radio only tunes to 87.9. The cons heavily outweigh the pros. The Bluetooth audio works well and sounds good. It transfers any sound from your bluetooth device through the stereo including text message alert sounds and so on. Dial and button controls are not intuitive. While selecting the radio or playlist you cannot use the dial to scroll, you must use the front/back buttons. Will probably be sucking up the $ loss and buying a different stereo soon.
Pros: Bluetooth audio works, sound quality is much better than a factory radio. More options for setting the illumination than for necessary controls (if that's important to you)
Cons: Frequency band is limited to 87.9 - 107.9. Hard to read the face in daylight. Bluetooth telephone connection doesn't work properly. You can't use the dial to tune the radio or select a song in the playlist- you must use the forward and back buttons. Buttons aren't intuitive. Cannot connect Bluetooth telephone and use a different audio function- for example you cannot wait for a call on Bluetooth while listening to the radio.Crutchfield response on 5/13/2015 Our Tech Support group reached out to this customer to offer an exchange since we do have some receivers that will pick up the FM frequency they want.

Great stereo. Great support from Crutchfield.
Great radio for the price. Bluetooth works well.
Pros: Price, ease of installation
Cons: Colors are very dull
I had this stereo installed in my pick up and I am very pleased with it.
Pros: great quality
I am very pleased with the quality of this head unit. Controls take a bit of study but you can find them eventually. Bluetooth connects flawlessly, Iphone is clear as a bell. I am really glad I purchased from Crutchfield as I believe their customer service/ tech support is the finest I have ever experienced.
Pioneer FH-X720BT is a great radio. The installation kit made the radio easy to hook up.
Pros: Great sound. User friendly controls. Nice colorful display.
Cons: The display gets washed out in direct sunlight making it hard to read at times.
Great purchase, the radio does everything and more. The hands free Siri is a nice bonus too. Display can be hard to read in bright light but at night it looks pretty sweet. If you want a solid replacement deck for a reasonable price, this is the one for you. Also, cannot say enough about how great Crutchfield tech support is. Installed a few radios before but its always nice to have some guidance when working with new equipment.
Pros: -Sound Quality -Display color options -Hands free Siri (Iphone 5s)
Cons: -Display hard to see in bright sun -Pandora is a bit non user friendly through deck
In a nut shell this is a great product that was not difficult to install and use.
Pros: User friendly, great sound, great look.
Cons: The setting up instructions can be umclear
I have purchased 3-4 other Pioneer head-units in the past, and have had nothing but excellent experiences with them. So when it was time to replace the factory Bose system in my 2002 Mercedes C-class, I knew it was going to be Pioneer again.
Pros: Great looks - not too cluttered with buttons. The variable colors is especially nice to allow matching the rest of your dash. Typical Pioneer performance (which is great in my book). Excellent value - you can get cheaper decks with more features (but questionable quality), or pay way more for decks with less features (and still questionable quality). Pioneer has always been reliable, with just the right balance of price vs features for me.
Cons: The only negative thing I have to say about this particular one is that the "source/OFF" button's tactile feel when you press on it isn't as nice as the other 3 buttons. Maybe I just got a bad one, who knows. It works fine, just doesn't have the same "click" feeling.
Not a terrible unit for the price, but most of my music is on a flash drive I plug into the stereo. I have it organized by artist, album, and then tracks, and this stereo had no concept of alphabetical ordering so the couple hundred artists I have on the drive appeared in random order. Incredibly there is also no mic gain setting for the Bluetooth, because the stereo was missing this very basic feature I wasn't able to turn up the microphone volume and callers weren't able to hear me. Pretty quickly requested an RMA because of these flaws. Otherwise a decent unit, dot matrix display is nice and was extremely quick about pairing with my Windows Phone. One quirk with the Bluetooth is I had to press the Band button after using the GPS navigation to resume playing music because for some reason the stereo wouldn't do it automatically. Kind of annoying when the GPS is calling out turns every 30 seconds and you end up having to hit the button quite a bit. Sound quality seemed decent, I have a separate audio amplifier so I just use the pre-outs on head units anyways. Display is unreadable in bright light but every stereo has that issue. Cycled through a couple other head units before settling on the JVC KD-X320BTS which does everything this head unit does and more (minus the CD drive, but who uses CDs these days?) for just over half the price.
Happy I purchased it
This radio was a nice addition to my 2005 Mustang. Overall I would recommend this radio, but there are some hitches that you should consider before purchasing. They're outline in my pros and cons. You should also consider getting a different double din adapter because the one Crutchfield recommended for my car was a poor fit (though it still worked).
Pros: Good sound Good looking (especially because of the color changing) Pretty easy to use if a little confusing at first Excellent Bluttooth reception Good phone call features and has an excellent microphone
Cons: USB player not compatible with Android phones that aren't brand new Shakes my speakers sometimes; the bass is up to high and there's no option to turn it down unless you set it to flat, which doesn't help much Can't be turned up to full volume without your speakers falling off MIXTRAX does not work. It just randomly switches to different songs starting in the middle or at the end never letting it finish with poor transition
Awesome head unit. Replaced the Mach 460 head unit in my '03 Mustang Cobra. Nice effects. Figured out pretty much how to use the head unit in about 15 minutes just tinkering with. It's great finally having bluetooth. This head unit actually enhanced the sound of my stock Mach 460 speakers. No more of that over bassed garbled sound. Of course, it would be better all around with new speakers and amps, but for an aftermarket head unit and stock speakers, this is all I need. Satisfied customer!
Pros: A lot for the price...
Cons: None so far...
This radio is a vast improvement over the factory unit. the only problem (if it is one) is not being able to just turn on or off the unit with one button. It was an easy install and am very satisfied with the purchase.
GREAT sound and LOOKS! GETTING ALL THE COMPLIMENTS!!!!!
With the supplied adapters it was an easy replacement for the factory head unit. I love having the bluetooth hookup for my phone! Having the front panel USB is great. I've never used the CD drive, doubt I ever will!
Pros: Easy replacement. Nice speaker phone. Plug in a thumb drive and play your music!
Cons: It can't handle big thumb drives. I suspect there isn't enough internal memory to deal with indexing 8000 tracks, so it only plays artists starting with A or B or C. This really makes it kind of annoying, actually. I haven't found a way to do voice dialing with the phone. I'm going to upgrade to a more capable unit.
I bought this head unit a few months ago, and I really like it. the "menu" navigation is really easy and the display is clear(except when the sun hits it) the multi-color display is a nice way to personalize the look of this. The only problem I had was I wasn't told I needed the factory bracket for a double din radio. The previous owner had installed a single din and didn't include the factory bracket, causing me to have to search the internet and salvage yards for a new one. This is in no way Crutchfield's or Pioneer's fault, I am just including this for others who might run into the same problem.
Pros: easy to use Nice menu navigation Large, bright display
Cons: none to date
Easy install with recommended interface kit, took about 45min. Programming is a little difficult to maneuver but not bad. Sound is very good for the price. Bluetooth works well.
Pros: easy install, good sound, good price
Cons: none yet
I installed this radio in my friend's 2006 Honda CRV. Given the wiring adapters and mounting hardware, installation was a breeze. The only issue we had was pairing the bt telephone with the radio. After contacting Crutchfield Tech. Support, we were walked through the pairing procedure. Everything works great. I have always been a Pioneer fan and will continue to be one.
Pros: Ease of installation. Great sound. Reasonable price. Looks great and ease of operation.
I was looking to upgrade my factory installed radio with something that has bluetooth and hands free phone capabilities, great sound. and within a budget. After a lot of research, I chose the Pioneer. It pretty much does everything it says and what I wanted. The bluetooth is practically flawless when using the Samsung S5. The CD player and radio also work great, which was important to me as well, since I don't stream everything. The sound is great and I have a lot of room to adjust the sound using all the EQ adjustments that I have-and between this unit and my phone, there's plenty of flexibility to adjust the sound to my liking. The colors are fun, and like other reviewers have mentioned, in the sun, it is hard to see, but then again , even with slightly tinted windows, everything else in my truck that has lighting is hard to see with sun glare. The system is relatively easy to use-once I read the instructions about how to access each menu. Installation was easy as well once I figured what I was doing. The only snag I got into was that at first I thought I had an extra amp in my truck, only to find out I didn't. Crutchfield has excellent customer service, and they guided me through the whole process, including figuring out whether I had the extra amp or not, and exchanged out the harness that is compatible with my truck without a problem. For sound quality, fun colors, streaming features, phone features and good price, I think this Pioneer FH-X720B is a great buy.
Pros: Perfect for what I needed
Cons: A couple of features are more geared towards the Apple products, but other than that, none.
Bought this unit to replace the stock radio in my wife's SUV. Was fairly easy to install but took a while to fit all harnesses behind the radio so the screws would reach the holes on the dash. Was easy to setup and connect to her android phone. Loads her contact list so all phone numbers are available to call. Now she can make and take calls without picking up the phone as the radio automatically connects via Bluetooth when she gets in the vehicle. By the way, the old speakers sound great with this unit. Would not hesitate buying again. When I ordered it, i failed to mention the speakers were Bose so they sent the wrong harness kit. They sent the right one the second time and did not charge me the upgrade price. I will definitely use Crutchfield again.
Pros: Hands free phone use. Sound quality. Ease of set up and use.
Cons: None so far.
I ordered the unit for my 06 Silverado fit just like they said it would. Looks great sounds great. Crutchfield is by far the best web site I have found to buy car audio.
Pros: Looks good, sounds great all around great unit
Cons: 0 cons
This unit was chosen to carry the torch after the original Monsoon H/U gave up the ghost in my wife's Grand Am GT. The radio is standard Pioneer fare, so navigating through the settings was a breeze. The simplicity in its interface is the true winner, and retaining the steering wheel controls was an added bonus. The factory speakers are handing the noise duties, but even with the EQ settings and HPF handy, nothing is going to keep me from upgrading the speakers, but still an improvement over the Monsoon H/U. Thanks goes to Adam for helping me choose the right interface to keep the aftermarket radio and factory wiring happy. The ability to adjust the colors and display makes it look right at home with the red lit dashboard.Overall a great unit.
Pros: Ease of use and great customization
Cons: Running the factory speakers sound a little drab, so an upgrade is due in the near future
Setup was a breeze and sound quality is great. It is easy to adjust the sound to the way you like it due to the detailed EQ options. Also, this may be of no value to most people, but the illumination options were so vast that I found a color that matches my gauges very well.
Pros: Ease of installation and ease of use.
Very easy to use and setup. Some said it was hard to see in bright light. Turned up brightness and set the best color to make it easy to see. Works great with IPhone 5s> Pandora not that easy.
Pros: Very easy to setup and use. Sound is great
Cons: Pandora not that easy to use or change channel.
Received it within just a couple of days. Crutchfield's processes are so in sync that the unit was here I just a matter of days. Great service. The unit is just as described so it did not disappoint. In terms of installation, the instructions were dead on and the required hardware was just right. Installed it within an hour and it fit like a glove. The sound is very good and offers a range of of options to equalize as preferred. The light show is quite unique as well. The dimmer options on this unit permits use without any unwanted glare at night within the cabin. Now the hands free phone feature is excellent! You can listen and talk as though you were directly on your phone. Excellent value! Thanks.
Pros: Great sound, handsfree phone feature is excellent, neat appearance, great color display.
Cons: Don't have any complaints.
Very nice unit. Sound is better than stock. Bluetooth works very well for music playback and phone calls. The external mic works well even in a noisy diesel pickup.
Pros: Bluetooth Sound quality Backlight color options to closely match stock Multiple brightness settings
Great double din deck, especially if you aren't interested in touch screens. Sound quality was superior to factory deck, and I paid for a premium audio upgrade (Subaru - Harman Kardon)
Pros: - 5 band EQ (compared to 3 band on JVC) - SLA, Loudness, Bass Boost - great additions - Vibrant back lighting - Great bluetooth call clarity - Easy phone pairing
Cons: - Accessing menu options on the fly isn't too easy
Very nice upgrade to my factory system. This system was easy to set up and directions for use was simple. My dash lights are mainly red and its a pretty good match. I just put this in so far so good. My android phone for making calls and playing audio paired with no problems. It's the first day of use, time will tell and some tweaking is still needed I am happy with this unit. Just one more thing I would like to see in the future a built in microphone for the phone into the head unit. You are able to separate the mic from the holder and place it directly where you want it and securing with double sided tape.
Pros: Easy to install,even easier with mounting hardware and connectors.
Cons: Not really a con but a built in microphone would be nice.
great product I'm glad that I purchased it.
Pros: excellent features..
This head unit is pretty amazing! I've had mine for almost 3 months now and I'm still as happy as the day I got it. You can't beat the price for this quality. Easy to install, gave much more power to my speakers, and is pretty easy to use once you know what you're doing. I give it 4 stars and not 5 because I was really excited about the Mixtracks feature but was kind of disappointed because the transitions in between songs sucks, but the light show is cool:) I would recommend getting this to anyone
Pros: Great value Great sound Great power
Cons: Mixtracks could use some work
Great sound and all of the extras I wanted. Recommended by Crutchfield staff, and a great recommendation at that.
Pros: Good looks and function.
So Far, this radio is great, no problems what so ever. I bought this one after comparing every single radio, more expensive and less, I am very happy with my decision. Installation wasn't so bad, took me about 5 hours, only because I had to take things apart and back in about 10 times. the wires/ harnesses weren't lining up with the factory ones. I love how I have different colors to choose from with the display and the sound is so much better, louder than the shaker 500 which was originally in my 2006 Ford Mustang. I picked this radio because I wanted the Bluetooth feature and I also wanted to be able to play music from my phone instead of listening to the radio because they out play songs all the time. Also the only bad thing about this is, at first turning it off was a bit confusing because I thought all I had to do was push the volume knob in but nope it was the "SRC" button you have to hold, it also would've helped if I read it because it does say "off" on that button lol.
Pros: Lighting Options Bluetooth Easy to Use-Self Explanatory
Cons: Nothing bad yet, although when I play my music on Bluetooth it sometimes stops unexpectedly.
easy to install, easy to configure, works fine
This is a superb value for anyone looking for a high quality car stereo at a great price. It has numerous features and outstanding sound, even with stock speakers. It is extremely easy to install. If you want to save the $100 plus dollars you would pay a tech to do it for you locally, just talk with the Crutchfield staff and they will walk you through the process step by step. Crutchfield is an outstanding company and I look forward to doing business with then again.
Pros: Great price, superb sound and functionality. Unbelievably easy to install.
Cons: Pioneer owner's manual not the greatest but Crutchfield will answer any question you have.
Great sound and features. Interacts with phone and I pod flawlessly. Phone function and sound quality is great. No more ear bud.
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Wiring is a bit lacking in detail.
Excellent customer service. Live chat provided answers to my installation needs and put together a complete package. Fast shipping. Easy to install. Great Value!
Pros: Price, sound quality, ease of installation with CrutchField install hardware.
Cons: Radio is a little difficult to navigate all of its many features.
Installed in daughter's car and she really likes it. She really likes the bluetooth connectivity to her iPhone/iPod. I like that she can answer her phone w/out taking her hands off the wheel / eyes off the road. Says all she needs now are some subs. ;)
Pros: Bluetooth is great. Included all needed accessories to install. Can answer phone w/out taking hands off wheel / eyes off road and the phone comes through so she doesn't miss a call.
Cons: Slight lag time in conversation.
I wanted an inexpensive double-DIN radio with hands-free Bluetooth & iPhone support and this Pioneer definitely delivers! Sounds good, looks good and easily paired with my iPhone 6. I'm still getting used to the control/menu interface - Pioneer tries to use a single control wheel for almost all settings but I don't know if any other brands have a better user-interface. Also, my unit shipped with out-of-date firmware, so I downloaded latest from Pioneer's website and upgraded right after installation.
Pros: Integrates well with iPhones, iPods & Siri. Variable color to match existing dashboard lighting theme - orange in the case of my Nissan Altima. Crutchfield includes all the accessories required to install this unit properly in your car!
Cons: Display is a little smaller than it should be (Pioneer fits a larger display into the "next-model-up" FH-X820BS) and some buttons are on the small side, too. No Mute switch for the hands-free Bluetooth speakerphone - just a "Hold" function that mutes BOTH ends of the phone conversation. Glossy display, panel & buttons displays fingerprint smudges too easily -
Love this head unit. I mainly purchased it for the iPhone options. The blue tooth connection works great and is super simple to use after pairing your phone. The big multi-use jog wheel works great too. Sound quality for hands free phone calls works well and the mic picks up voice without yelling. All in all its a great unit at an awesome price. Super easy install with the Crutchfield supplied accessories.
I asked the experts at Crutchfield for recommedations and I bought the Pioneer FH-X720BT head unit. Crutchfield sent all the needed hardware and wiring harness and when I needed a little help I just called the number and was helped!! I will recommend Crutchfield to everyone and I appreciate the help. This is such a nice upgrade from the stock unit that came with my 2005 Nissan Frontier! Very powerful and just sounds Super! Especially after replacing the Speakers as well. Thank You Crutchfield!!
Pros: Nice looking and easy to navigate. Looks great!
Over all nice radio. Little difficult to get through all the settings
Pros: Easy to install, lots of options for color and settings
Cons: Lot's of options for color and settings
Fantastic stereo for the price, especially with connectors and frame included! Bluetooth audio pairing is fantastic, even starts up and pauses automatically when car is turned on/off. Surprisingly easy to install, even for a novice.
Pros: Solid bluetooth call audio One-button Siri integration Customizable color pallete Easy BT/AUX controls from stereo or paired phone
Cons: The "custom" instructions aren't actually very specific. You WILL need a socket wrench WITH EXTENSION, flashlight, and wire strippers and crimpers, and DO joing to blue & black remote power wire to the blue power wire of any adapter. I suggest watching several YouTube videos on removing console paneling and wiring up a harness if your confidence is low or you've never done this before.
Everything about it is easy to use. Even the installation was a breeze using the adapter provided by crutchfield. The Bluetooth works flawlessly with all of my devices, galaxy s5 and ipod 5, connecting within seconds and sounds great!
Love the appearance of the unit, but I have had a hard time trying to figure out how to use it. The best feature for me is the blue tooth pairing with my iPhone for hands free calling. I am having the hardest time trying to use it with my iPod. It is difficult to find the track I want to play. You certainly don't want to be distracted while driving, so it takes another person to operate it. Maybe I'll get better at it over time.
Pros: Beautiful addition to the dashboard
Cons: Too complicated and not intuitive to operate.
Much better product than the Sony I purchased a couple years ago. For the same price, this one has much better features and is easier to use. I'd highly recommend this stereo...in fact I already have on another forum. Best bang for the buck.
Pros: Easy to use, easy to read in daylight, customizable colors, connects with more than one phone at a time, great value for the price.
Cons: Takes a little bit to learn how to switch between phones for streaming music because it isn't spelled out that clearly in the instruction book.
All the part that needed was provided by Crutchfield. Excellent customer service when I had to call to ask about the blue wire on the antenna adapter (which needs to be crimped with the other blue wires on the receiver and car adapter harness). Sound quality improve over the OEM on the Nissan Versa. Blutooth/hand free phone call quality is execellent. I mounted the microphone where the speedometer is at with the provide clipon. A lot of customization to led colors to match the car interios dashboard. This is my first car stereo installation and Crutchfield made it smooth and simple. Would definitely buy again from Crutchfield.
Pros: A lot of customization. Many different led colors to match all cars interior dashboard. Excellent blutooth phone call quality
Cons: Not necessary a con, but I turned off the dizzying MIXTRAZ effects. It just not to my taste.
Anywhere else it's a crapshoot buying a new sound system for a car, especially with the look of the final fit but my experiences with Crutchfield have been nothing but positive and this Pioneer ended up fitting like it was an original factory install. It looks incredible.
Pros: The perfect fit, the easy instructions from Crutchfield, the multi color display, Bluetooth and sound make this an awesome addition to our car.
I have the Pioneer FH-X720BT installed a 2009 Pontiac Vibe with the Monsoon factory system. This new head unit brings alot of life to the factory amp and speakers. I am still tweaking the sound options on the new headunit. The problem i have is the you have to run a power line to the fuse block but the supplied tap does not work I had to get a low profile dual fuse tap. Other than that awesome product.
Pros: made the factory amp and speakers sound so much better.
Cons: Crutchfield you need to add the dual low profile tap to list of equipment when someone buys a headunit for second generation Vibes. The taps that Metra provides do not work.
I bought this on Crutchfield's site. This site is the very best vendor for these products. I get very help tips for installation. I have purchased 3 stereo's and they all have fit right in. Wiring was minimal. This stereo looked awesome and sounds awesome. She wanted something she could listen to her gospel music on while travelling. One of the funniest things was I told my son to be sure and turn off the changing colors a have grandma pick a color she wanted. She wanted the changing colors she thought it was "neeto".
Pros: Easy to install. Had all the needed options. Multiple Colors and Brightness.
Upgraded the stock stereo for the Bluetooth connectivity. Works awesome, calls are clear and easy to hear and people are surprised when I tell them that I am using handsfree. Sound is good and once you figure out the tricks of which button does what it's easy to use. Only complaint is after I installed it I had a rattle in the dash that I couldn't track down. Finally figured out it was the bottom metal case of the radio itself. It would vibrate and would be fairly irritating. Fixed with a small bit of insulation tucked under the radio. Just enough to calm the rattle.
Pros: Good sound. Excellent Bluetooth hands free phone connection. Looks good.
Cons: Cheap metal case that would rattle
I was a little sceptical all when I read the reviews of how good the unit sounded and how easy the installation would be. Frankly, everything was correct...right to the last detail. I only had to make one call to the tech line during installation to clear up a question on wiring connections and the rest was easy. Took maybe 60 minutes, and that was only because I really went slowly to make sure I didn't forget a step or connection. I haven't installed a car stereo since the early 1970's so I was a little worried, but it was easy. And I didn't even have any extra parts left over! The sound is also a big upgrade from the 12 year old factory Hyundai unit I had. I really enjoy the hands free phone calling, the Bluetooth features, and streaming Pandora and Spotify. No aux cords needed! Big props to Pioneer and Crutchfield. Save the money of installation....you can do it!
Pros: Easy installation with the kit provided. The tech help number was the reason I chose Crutchfield over another one I was looking to buy. Better sound than the factory unit the car came with, and lots more features, some I may not need but it's nice to know they are there. I found this was Pioneers most popular selling stereo, and now I know why.
Cons: None, really. There's a bit of a learning curve to getting used to the new buttons and functions, but that would be necessary for any new stereo with many functions. Overall, a great stereo at a great price!
Lots of features for the money. More direct function buttons would be nice, but a quick review of the manual and the unit is easy to use. Biggest complaint is the read-out display is not bright enough in any color during the daytime, no matter what brightness settings I try, and most discouraging is that the orange color which matches my car's IP lights is one of the most difficult to see in daytime. Also difficult to dial in the perfect audio settings, but likely a result of the inferior factory speakers. The Pandora app is great but tends to glitch on re-connect after an incoming call, although can be easily remedied by switching to BT-Audio and then back to Pandora. The clear lens face flexes when certain buttons are pushed, but function not affected. Overall, a great buy for the money, with great features (Pandora app, BT phone) and only a few minor flaws that are easily endured.
Pros: Great bass, Pandora app, limitless color options, BT phone, eq customization, 2 sets of pre-outs plus HPF
Cons: Pandora app has some minor glitches, color washout in daylight, audio slighly difficult to dial in perfectly without "perfect" speakers
This would of been 5 starts. The reason its not is because in order to use the Bluetooth you have to search for the contact using the head unit or the phone. if you could make calls with out having to take your eyes off of the road it would be 5 starts
Pros: Good sound quality
Cons: Bluetooth not the greatest
Awesome for the price!
An easy install for my 2003 Tacoma. The Crutchfield instructions were on point. Price was cheaper on other sites, but shipping speed, included wiring harness, and detailed instructions tipped the balance Crutchfield's way.
Pros: Colorful, good sound, solid build
Cons: Complicated functions buried under numerous button taps. I'll probably not get to the full potential of this player.
I did a self-install of this Pioneer unit with PAC RP5-GM11 Wiring Interface into my GMC Envoy. Using Crutchfield chat to get product information, I ordered it. I also bought a wire crimp tool set to connect the Pioneer plug to the PAC RP5-GM11 harness plug -- no soldering! Preparation time about equal to installation time. Everything works! The chime module is a different sound but I dialed the volume down. I have my iPhone bluetooth paired, I can play my iPod nano through the USB interface, and also USB jump drive with mp3. And of course CD and AM/FM radio. A great technology refresh for my 10 year old Envoy! The sound quality through my factory Bose amp is great. Steering wheel controls work! iPhone speaker phone via Bluetooth! Very satisfied customer is me.
Pros: in-dash integration of bluetooth, aux-in, usb, am/fm, cd player. Great sound.
Cons: The plastic adapter for the dash has many tabs that have to be removed as it is a multi-vehicle solution. I found a coping saw in my tool box to cut the tabs off -- they would not break off, and the plastic was not suitable for cutting with a knife.
I installed this in my Ford F250 truck. Being relatively inexperienced with car radios this took me longer to install than it should, but still was pretty simple. I like the look, sound and options of the radio. My kids love the fact that the lights change colors. That adds to the cool factor as my son put it. I would think in this day and age that they would have a premade adaptor to go from the car connection to the radio with out having to crimp or soder the wire connections. I wish the the menu and changeing settings were a little simpler and more intuitive. Other than than that I would definitely recommend this product for quality, value and ease of installation.
Pros: Installation easy. nice sound and look to the radio. Bluetooth works great.
Cons: Controls and menu not that straightforward as i believe it could be.
Easy install in my 2007 Jetta with the Axxess XSVI 9003 harness. Bought from Crutchfield instead of another online retailer for the technical support, and used it to make sure I was making the right connections on the wiring harness so I just had to plug the new stereo into the dash. Installing the bluetooth mike was easy with a little help from an online video. Set the colors to match the dash lights. It looks great, and not too flashy. With the axxess harness, I get auto dimming with headlights, so it matches the dash. It powers on and off with the accessory power, and bluetooth connects in about 1 or 2 seconds and automatically hands off calls started before starting the car. I'm really enjoying the upgrade over the OEM head unit.
Pros: Value, ease of installation, customization options, fast and reliable bluetooth functionality
Cons: Polarized sunglasses make the display hard to read, inability to remove Pandora and Apps from the source menu (so far), no rear USB input to hide the wire for connected audio players
Replaced OEM unit in 2008 Honda that came with radio & CD player only. Having a unit now with Bluetooth, Pandora ,Streaming Audio for iPhone 6, & CD player is a giant step up for very little money. Crutchfield included everything needed for the install. Also added Alpine speakers & trashed the bad OEM's. Should have done this years ago.
Pros: I don't think you could get more value for your money than this unit. Local custom shops wanted more money for similar units. Install was straight forward but I took my time. If you have OEM speakers I recommend replacing them to get the full value of this unit.
Cons: Reception of weak stations is actually worse with this unit than EOM. A friend who worked in the custom audio business said that is normal for after market head units. The set up manual could have been more clearly written. There is no final "set" button; instead you back out of the sub menu which was not intuitive for me. Came with a remote which I can never imagine using. These are minor issues & should not dissuade you from considering this unit.
Greta stereo with great features, the blue tooth is easy to sync and works fantastic
Pros: great features
Great little unit - installation wasn't bad, but the stock mounts for my Toyota RAV 4 were plastic - flimsy. Seems to be holding up after 3 months though. Good sound quality for all inputs except BT. My iPhone 6's (all three of them in our family) won't stream BT without an incredibly loud buzzing sound every 8 minutes or so. This is followed a few seconds later by a half second of no sound. Firmware update shortened the duration of this annoying and ear-piercing problem, but it still occurs with perfect regularity about every 8 minutes. Take note if you plan to use this unit with Bluetooth!!
Pros: Great price for a solid-sounding unit.
Cons: Bluetooth streaming is buggy, and firmware patch (10.22.14) does not fix.
Crutchfield's customer service is awesome and their expertise is second to none. The unit itself was easy to install and sounds great. Now if I could just turn off the two outer LED lights.
Pros: Excellent sound Easy install BT built in
Cons: LED overload
Easy to install and works perfectly. Menu is easy to navigate and sound quality is a great upgrade over my stock deck. BT mode is excellent and call quality is superb.
Perfect design and quality for the price. Bluetooth work great.
I purchased this unit to replace the old dull sounding stock radio in my Honda. To my surprise, it was quite simple to install and setup. I am also pleased on how seamlessly my iPhone works when recieving or making phones calls. If purchase this item, it is highly recommended that you install the latest firmware for the unit, before using it. The fireware can obtained from Pioneer's website.
Pros: Music has improved 10 times over, and it's playing through original Honda stock speakers! The sound quality when recieving or making calls are crystal clear.
Cons: I've been listening to the Pioneer FH-X720BT while communiting to and from work, and around time during personal arrands and so far, I can't neither complain nor find any short coming with this unit.
Awesome stereo! Of coarse I will buy again from Crutchfield!
