Beauty and brains

I've been satisfied with "old school" stereos in my car for a while, but this latest generation of touchscreen DVD receivers from Pioneer has changed my tune. Pioneer's AVH-2330NEX DVD gives me quick and easy access to my podcasts, streaming music, phone calls, and more, all with easy-to-use interfaces that I can customize to match my taste and preferences.

Pioneer AVH-2330NEX

The AVH-2330NEX supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Smartphone compatibility that rules

I've seen a lot of receivers that promise smartphone compatibilty, but this Pioneer really offers some great options for enjoying a seamless experience. You can plug your iPhone® or Android™ into this receiver and take charge of a variety of apps for navigation, music, and more from three very cool interfaces. Best of all, you don't have to pick one — Pioneer's made it easy to switch quickly between them, depending on the task at hand.

  • Apple CarPlay — CarPlay is an iOS user's dream. Plug in your iPhone and you'll access a super user-friendly iOS styled interface that lets you quickly jump into your music, podcasts, messages, streaming music and more. CarPlay's a no-brainer for me — it's the safest and easiest way to use your iPhone in the car, hands down.

  • Android Auto™ — Your media, nav, phone, apps, and more are organized in a simple, clean interface that gives Android users an easy way to hit the road.

  • AppRadio Mode+ — Pioneer's AppRadio Mode+ provides additional flexibility when your iPhone is attached, letting you tap into apps like Waze for navigation, and providing easy access to some video content through AppRadioLIVE.

Intuitive, customizable interface

The AVH-2330NEX boasts a bright and crystal-clear VGA display with plenty of customization options. You can set your home screen to display your favorite sources, and then switch between them with just a single touch, letting you pay more attention to the road, and less to operating your stereo.

Spotify and Pandora® control

If you're like me and use streaming services a lot, you'll appreciate how you can control your Pandora and Spotify accounts from the receiver. Just connect your iPhone via USB or Bluetooth, or pair up your Android™ with Bluetooth and you're all set. You can even create new Pandora stations on the fly just by pressing a button.

Bluetooth® wireless command

The AVH-2330NEX is ready to roll with hands-free calling with your compatible phone, plus the ability to wirelessly stream and control music from up to five different phones. Plus, with your compatible iPhone, you can take advantage of Siri Eyes Free functionality, using your voice to place calls, select music, hear notifications, add reminders — even compose and listen to text messages.

Awesome AV

The receiver's LCD screen plays DVDs and other video content in bright, clear detail when you're parked. You can keep your passengers entertained by sending video from the receiver to a rear-seat screen — that sure helps to minimize wars in the back seat. You'll be able to view video content from your iPod or IPhone with the addition of optional cables. And you can play it safe when you throw it into reverse by plugging in a rear-view camera.

iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras

This Pioneer offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included). The module lets you keep factory features in your Chrysler, Ford, GM, Toyota, Honda, Fiat, or VW vehicle that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You'll also be able to check out expanded functionality on the Pioneer's screen, including gauges, climate controls, a distance sensor, and tire pressure and temperature monitors.

If you currently use AppRadio Mode, Pioneer has found that it won't work with iOS 11. They're working on an update, so you may want to keep iOS 10 until that fix is available.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

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

    Touchscreen & Remote Features

    Motorized Clear Resistive LCD Touchscreen: The Pioneer AVH-2330NEX features a 6.94" clear resistive LCD touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 (RGB) x 480, for a total of 1,152,000 pixels. The clear resistive panel is designed to enhance the visibility of on-screen graphics and images, making them appear clear and crisp. The touchscreen display allows you to control this unit and a connected component such as an iPod/iPhone, Android smartphone, Bluetooth phone, or USB mass storage class device. Menus appear on screen for making function choices, audio adjustments, and setting up the system. The angle of the touchscreen display can be adjusted to five different positions to meet your viewing needs in the car.

    • Favorites: You can register the desired menu items on the AVH-2330NEX's "Favorites" menu screen. Registering your favorite menu items allows you to quickly jump to the registered menu item by a simple touch on the favorites menu. Up to 12 menu items can be registered as a "Favorite".

    • OSD + Backgrounds: The color of the on-screen display can be set to red, amber, green, blue or white. The background display can be selected from 5 different preset displays for the AV Operation screen and 8 different preset displays for the Home Menu screen. In addition, you can change the background display to other images imported from an external USB device.
    • Widescreen Modes: You can choose from the following widescreen modes when playing back video - Full (4:3 picture is enlarged in the horizontal direction only; enabling you to enjoy a 4:3 picture without any omissions), Zoom (4:3 picture is enlarged in the same proportion both vertically and horizontally; ideal for a 16:9 screen), Normal (4:3 picture is displayed as it is).
    • Picture Adjustments: You can store numerous video settings for the head unit's video sources and rear-view camera; including brightness (adjusts the black intensity), contrast (adjusts contrast), color (adjusts color saturation), hue, (adjusts color tone), temperature (adjust the color temperature), and Dimmer (adjusts brightness).

    Variable Illumination: The AVH-2330NEX offers custom illumination for the front-panel controls so you can match your vehicle's interior, plus MIXTRAX Illumination for DJ-style illumination in your vehicle.

    • Front-Panel Control w/ Custom Illumination: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons along the bottom edge of the screen. The color of the button illumination can be set to red, amber, green, blue, white, or scan (constantly cycling through the color spectrum). You can also create a custom color to match your vehicle's interior lighting (112 colors to choose from).
    • MIXTRAX Illumination: MIXTRAX features a club-style illumination that enhances the mood with a dynamic dance club-like lighting effect. As MIXTRAX begins, lights start pulsing to the beat of the music, adding an extra level of entertainment. You can choose among twelve patterns of lighting variations from sound pressure level or low-pass synchronization modes. The lighting effects work like a spectrum analyzer, reaching peak colors based on the intensity of the music.

    Dimmer: The receiver's touchscreen display & button illumination can be dimmed manually, automatically or via a timer. You can set the unit's LCD touchscreen & button illumination to automatically dim when your vehicle's headlights are turned on (this function requires that the orange/white illumination wire in the wiring harness is hardwired to the vehicle's headlight circuit). You can also set a specific time and duration for unit's LCD & button illumination to dim.

    Remote Functions: The Pioneer AVH-2330NEX DVD receiver includes a wireless remote control and offers steering wheel control capability (adapter required).

    • Wireless Remote Control: The Pioneer AVH-2330NEX includes an IR remote control (CXE5116) for wireless operation of the DVD receiver and your connected devices. The included remote does offer Bluetooth phone functions.
    • Optional Steering Wheel Controls: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately).

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

    Android (Android Auto) & iPhone (CarPlay) Integration

    Android Auto: The Pioneer NEX receiver supports the Android Auto app for Android smartphones running OS Lollipop (5.0 or newer). Your compatible Android smartphone must be connected to the NEX receiver's rear-panel USB port via the included USB extension cable and a microUSB-to-USB cable, plus be paired via Bluetooth (your vehicle's parking brake needs to be engaged to initially setup Android Auto). Android Auto extends the Android platform into your car in a way that's purpose-built for driving and automatically brings you useful information and organizes it into simple on-screen "card-style" pop-ups that appear just when they're needed. It's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road ahead. Features of Android Auto include:

    • Google Speech Technology: The Pioneer NEX receiver enhances your Android Auto experience even more by incorporating Google's Speech Technology using the head unit's external microphone and your car speakers for voice command and text-to-speech, which makes using Android Auto and all of its integrated applications fast, easy, and safe. You will need to press the on-screen "mic" icon to activate Google Speech.
    • Maps: Use Google Maps to get where you're going with on-screen maps, voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance, and more. Select your destination by using the head unit's touchscreen or just say where you want to go through the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology. You can even listen to music from your Android Auto device or other connected source device while using Google Maps.
    • Phone & SMS: With Android Auto you get access to your contacts and messages through the Pioneer NEX receiver while keeping your eyes on the road. Use the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology to make a phone call, or have your text-messages read aloud to you while you concentrate on the road ahead; you can even reply to texts via voice command.
    • Music: Access your Android smartphone's music library through the Pioneer receiver via Google Play Music. You'll be able to browse music like you do on your smartphone with song/artist information display and album art. Use the receiver's touchscreen to select songs or just say what song you want to listen to through the head unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology. You also get access to online music and radio stations from Amazon Music, Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, Slacker Radio, & Tune-In. Music apps include song and station browsing, plus song/artist information and album art or station logo.
    Note: Android smartphones with a USB Type-C connector (including the Pixel) may not function without appropriate USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable. Click here for more details.

    Apple CarPlay: The Pioneer AVH-2330NEX features Apple CarPlay, the smarter and safer way to use your iPhone in the car. The Pioneer AVH-2330NEX supports Apple CarPlay through your USB-connected iPhone (iOS 7.1+) with Lightning connector. Your iPhone can be connected to the NEX-series head unit's rear-panel USB port via the included USB extension cable and a Lightning-to-USB cable. Apple CarPlay gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, listen to music, and access messages through Siri voice control and the Pioneer receiver's touchscreen controls.

    • Maps: Apple CarPlay brings the power and simplicity of Apple Maps to your dashboard; complete with turn-by-turn direction, traffic conditions, and estimated travel time. You can enter a new destination or choose a favorite or recent destination using the head unit's touchscreen or by simply asking Siri. CarPlay can also predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars. You can even listen to music from your Apple CarPlay device or other connected source device while using Apple Maps.
    • Phone & Messages: Via Apple CarPlay, you'll be able to make calls, return missed calls, and listen to voicemails through the Pioneer head receiver. Siri can also help you do all these things. In addition, Siri can send, read, and reply to your text messages for you; so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving.
    • Music Library: Through Apple CarPlay, you can access your artists, song, playlists, and iTunes Radio on your iPhone using the Pioneer head unit's touchscreen. Or, just tell Siri what you'd like to listen to. The head unit's touchscreen will display song/artist information, as well as album art in the background.
    • Apps: CarPlay also supports additional audio apps that you've downloaded to your iPhone for enjoying music, radio, sports, news, podcasts, & audiobooks. Control them from the head unit's touchscreen just like you would from your iPhone. Apple continues to add more apps to CarPlay. Current supported apps include (fees may apply) -

    AppRadio Mode+: The Pioneer DVD receiver features AppRadio Mode+ for Apple iPhones (iOS 9.0+) with Lightning connector and select Android (OS 4.4+) smartphones. AppRadio Mode+ gives you the ability to view and control compatible iPhone and Android smartphone apps from the receiver's touchscreen using a one-cable USB connection. You'll need to download Pioneer's AppRadio app (for Apple iOS 7.0-up / Android OS 4.4+) and the AppRadioLive app (Apple iOS 9.0-up / Android OS 4.4+) onto your compatible iPhone or Android smartphone. Once you have downloaded the apps, your compatible iPhone or Android smartphone simply connects to the Pioneer DVD receiver's USB input using the cable that came with your mobile device. Now that the AppRadio and AppRadioLive apps are downloaded, and your compatible Apple iPhone or Android smartphone is connected the DVD receiver, you have access to maps, media, news information, and your events calendar through the receiver's intuitive touchscreen interface.

    • Maps: AppRadio Mode+, along with AppRadioLive use the native maps from your smartphone overlaid with INRIX live traffic data to provide live traffic and incident information to give you an estimated time of arrival at your chosen destination. Once you select your destination, you'll be guided along your route via an on-screen map and audible voice prompts. Selected destinations can also be sent to popular compatible apps like Waze, Navmii, or Genius Maps. You can even use Yelp to find points of interest along the way, including restaurant ratings and reviews.
    • Media: AppRadio Mode+ and AppRadioLive let you play your stored music library directly from your smartphone through the Pioneer DVD receiver. And, you can access over 60,00 internet radio stations from Radionomy. Or, you can access over 25,000+ radio shows and podcasts from your Stitcher account.
    • Events: In addition, AppRadio One and AppRadioLive keep you up-to-date on the latest news stories, RSS feeds and weather information with Feedly and Open Weather Map. With text-to-speech technology, the Pioneer receiver will even read you the latest news stories from the internet.
    • Calendar: The AppRadio One and AppRadio Live applications also keep your life organized and makes it easier to stay in touch and have fun. With multiple viewing options within its sleek, simple user interface, you can access your smartphone and Facebook calendars in one place, RSVP to Facebook events and use EventSeeker to find nearby concerts and events based on your personal interests and location.

    Android MTP Playback: The receiver supports MTP for playback & control of stored music files on your Android (OS 4.0+) device through the Pioneer receiver's rear-panel USB port. In this mode, you get basic playback control (like Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track), plus song/artist information on the receiver's LCD screen. During MTP connection, you cannot use your Android smartphone's touchscreen to control music playback and you cannot select music apps from your smartphone for playback. However, you can continue to listen to stored music on your Android smartphone through the head unit while you check your Calendar, Facebook, Texts, etc on your phone. You smartphone's battery will also be charged while connected via USB (5V/1.5A).

    iPod/iPhone Music Playback via USB: The Pioneer AVH-2330NEX supports direct connection of select Lightning & 30-pin iPod/iPhone models through its rear-panel USB port. The AVH-2330NEX offers audio playback, music navigation, information display, and charging of select Apple iPod/iPhone models. You will need a Lightning-to-USB or dock-to-USB cable to connect your Apple iPod/iPhone device.

    • Control: From the head unit's touchscreen, you can search your iPod/iPhone's audio content (up to 16,000 songs) by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Podcast, Genre, Composer, Audiobook, or Radio. Once you have selected a category, you can search each category alphabetically (A-Z). In addition, the head unit offers Link Search, which allows you to play songs related to the currently playing song. Link Search lets the head unit create an album list of the currently playing artist, a song list of the currently playing album, or an album list of the currently playing genre. You can also select Random & Repeat functions for a certain song or specific folder. You can even access your iPhone's Apple Music Radio through the head unit's touchscreen.
    • Song/Artist Info + Album Art: In addition, the head unit will display your iPod/iPhone's stored music information including Track number, Elapsed playing time, Song/Album title, Artist name, and Album art.
    • Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1.5A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone device when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. If your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.
    Note: During connection, older iPod/iPhone device's will be locked, but newer Apple devices w/ iOS 6.0+ will stay unlocked so you can also control the iPod/iPhone from its touchscreen or clickwheel.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth 4.1: The AVH-2330NEX is equipped with built-in Bluetooth (4.1), allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles -

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP 1.6 (Hands Free Profile), OPP 1.1 (Object Push Profile), PBAB 1.0 (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.3 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP 1.4 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Pioneer AVH-2330NEX.

    SPP (Secure Simple Pairing) w/ Dual Phone Connection: With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the AVH-2330NEX without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. Up to 5 Bluetooth-compatible devices can be paired to this head unit. An already paired Bluetooth device will automatically re-connect with the head unit when it is in close proximity inside the vehicle. You are even able to keep two Bluetooth-enabled smartphones connected at the same time, so you can switch between phones from the head unit's touchscreen, without having to connect or re-connect devices.

    Hands-Free Communication (w/ External Mic): The PioneerAVH-2330NEX supports wireless hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. Thanks to the latest Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.6) with wideband speech capability, the AVH-2330NEX provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls. The AVH-2330NEX allows you to carry on a phone conversation from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone using the head unit's external microphone and your car audio speakers. During a conversation you can adjust the volume, as well as switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode.

    • Answering A Call: During an incoming phone call, the head unit will display the caller's information and an audible ring tone will be heard through your vehicle's speakers. You can manually answer an incoming call or have the unit automatically answer the call.
    • Making A Call: The AVH-2330NEX offers a variety of ways to make call using the in-dash receiver.
      • Direct Dialing: You can make a call by entering the phone number using the head unit's touchscreen keypad.
      • Preset Dialing: You can store up to six phone numbers as presets for quicker dialing.
      • Phone Book: The phone book (up to 1000 contacts) in your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone will be transferred automatically when the phone is paired to this unit. After finding the number you want to call in the phone book from the head unit, you can select the entry and make the call. If a lot of numbers are registered in the phone book, you can search for a phone number by the contact person's name alphabetically.
      • Call Log: The 80 most recent calls dialed, received, and missed are stored in memory. You can browse them and call numbers from these lists.
      • Voice Dialing via Siri: When paired and connected with an iPhone 4S or later via Bluetooth, the Pioneer head unit has the ability to access Siri through its touchscreen controls and external microphone. You'll be able to dial a phone number or contact via voice command.

    • BSM (Best Stations Memory): The BSM (Best Stations Memory) function lets you automatically store the six strongest analog or HD stations under preset buttons 1-6 of the currently tuned band. The tuner has 3 FM banks and 1 AM bank. You can store 6 presets for each bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM presets.
    • Local Tuning: Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. There are 4 level of sensitivity for FM and two levels for AM. The higher settings allow reception of only the strongest stations, while lower settings let you receive progressively weaker stations.

    Note: HD Radio is the system for digital AM and FM broadcasting in the U.S. More than 2,000 radio stations are broadcasting their primary signals in digital HD Radio technology, as a free service. Go to to check for HD Radio stations in your area.

    Audio & DSP Section

    24-Bit/192kHz DAC: The Pioneer AVH-2330NEX is equipped with a 24-bit/192Hz digital-to-analog converter for superb quality audio playback from disc, USB, iPod/iPhone, Android, and Bluetooth.

    MOSFET50 Internal Amplifier: The Pioneer AVH-2330NEX is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.

    • CTA-2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (or 50 watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)
    Note: The power specifications for the AVH-2330NEX are compliant with the CTA-2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.

    4V/6CH Preamp Outputs + Sub Control: The Pioneer AVH-2330NEX features three pair of 4.0-volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Subwoofer). The unit's front and rear preamp output can be faded (front/rear), while the subwoofer preamp output is non-fading. The Pioneer AVH-2330NEX lets you adjust the subwoofer preamp output's phase (normal/reverse) and volume (+10 to -24).

    Crossovers: The AVH-2330NEX employs high-pass and low-pass crossovers to tailor the head unit to your connected speaker setup.

    • Standard: Allows you to set the high-pass and low-pass crossover network for a standard Front, Rear, and Subwoofer speaker setup using either speaker-level or low-level outputs.
      • HPF: The head unit's -6 to -24dB/octave high pass filter only allows frequencies higher than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125, 160, 200Hz) to your front and rear speakers through the unit's speaker-level or line-level outputs.
      • LPF: The subwoofer preamp output features an -6 to -24dB/octave low pass filter so only frequencies lower than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125, 160, 200Hz) are output to your connected subwoofer.
    • Network: Allows you to set the high-pass and low-pass crossover network for a complex 3-way speaker system with Highs, Mids, and Sub using low-level outputs only.
      • Highs: The high-pass crossover for your tweeters can be set to 1.25, 1.6, 2, 2.5, 3.15, 4, 5, 6.3, 8, 10, or 12.5 kHz with a -6 to -36dB/octave roll-off.
      • Mids: You can set a high-pass and low-pass crossover from your midrange/midbass drivers. The high-pass crossover can be set to 1.25, 1.6, 2, 2.5, 3.15, 4, 5, 6.3, 8, 10, or 12.5 kHz with a -6 to -36dB/octave roll-off. The low-pass crossover can be set to 26, 31.5, 40, 50, 63, 80, 100, 125, 160, 200, or 250 Hz with a -6 to -36dB/octave roll-off.
      • Lows: The low-pass crossover for your subwoofers can be set to 26, 31.5, 40, 50, 63, 80, 100, 125, 160, 200, or 250 Hz with a -6 to -36dB/octave roll-off.

    EEQ (Easy EQ) w/ 13-Band Graphic EQ: There are seven stored equalizer curves which you can easily recall at any time. You can choose from - Powerful, Natural, Vocal, Super Bass, Flat, Custom 1, or Custom 2. The Custom 1 and Custom 2 EQ modes allow you to manually adjust the level (+/- 12dB) of each band of the head unit's 13-band graphic equalizer (50, 80, 125, 200, 315, 500, 800, 1.25k, 2k, 3.15k, 5k, 8k, and 12.5k Hz).

    Auto EQ (Optional): The auto-equalizer automatically measures your car's interior acoustic characteristics, and then creates an auto-equalizer curve base on that information. The Pioneer CD-MC20 Auto-EQ microphone (130CDMC20, sold separately) is required to use this function. The Pioneer CD-MC20 Auto-EQ microphone plugs into your compatible Pioneer A/V receiver's rear-panel AUX 3.5mm input. The Auto-EQ microphone should be placed in the center of your vehicle's driver seat headrest facing forward for EQ measurement.

    Audio Settings: The head unit provides further sound adjustments for your car audio system.

    • Listening Position & Time Alignment: For a better sound-stage you can select your optimal listening position. You can choose from All, Front Left, Front Right, or Front. You can also select to manually fine tune the sound stage, using Digital Time Alignment (DTA) by selecting the distance (0-200") for each individual speaker in the vehicle compared to your listening position.
    • Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. When the Advanced Sound Retriever is on, the high frequency range is compensated to match the frequency response curve to the original sound. There are two available levels of the Advanced Sound Retriever effect.
    • Bass Boost: You can easily boost the subwoofer bass level by using the Bass Boost function. The Bass Boost feature allows you increase the subwoofer level from 0 to +6 (12dB).
    • Loudness: The Loudness function compensates for deficiencies in the low- and high-frequency ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness to High, Mid, Low, or Off.
    • Speaker Level: You can adjust each speaker and sub channel independently from +10 to -24 to best even out the sound in your vehicle.
    • Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Settings are based on the unit's FM volume level, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from -4 dB to +4 dB.
    • Auto Level Control (ALC): This function automatically corrects the audio level difference between the music files and/or the sources.

    Rear Speaker Setup: The rear speaker outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading capability, or they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass) output. When the rear speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp outputs also switch from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer operation, you can connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm passive subwoofers or a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you prefer to use a single 2-ohm subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of speaker leads, leaving the other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum output provided when a 2-ohm load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.

    MIXTRAX: Drawing from Pioneer's rich DJ heritage and passion for music, MIXTRAX delivers a unique DJ infused listening experience to listeners in the car. MIXTRAX is an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a non-stop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects. MIXTRAX takes your typical music listening experience and creates a non-stop mix of your music with 6 random DJ effects and transitions, by removing the breaks and pauses normally introduced between tracks and replacing them with various beats. MIXTRAX is compatible with USB-connected iPhone, iPod, USB MSC device, and select Android devices. There is also a Short Playback option which limits the amount of time each track plays.

    Note: The MIXTRAX function does not work with CarPlay, Android Auto, AppRadioLive, Pandora, or Spotify.

    Yes, but the connector has to be purchased separately. It's easy to do. The wire colors on the wiring harness for the car match the wire colors on the harness for the radio. Just connect the wires. There are videos on youtube. I soldiered the wires then sealed them with heat shrink tubing.
    robert  Feb 24, 2018
    Not directly. You can purchase a conversion harness that plugs into the cars OE harness. It would then be spliced to the radio harness supplied. You never want to cut the cars OE harness.

    I've read that the apple CarPlay for this product does not support the latest iOS which is currently 11.2 it only supports 10 and lower and they still do not have the firmware update to support the latest iOS version, is that correct?

    I can attest that radio etc still plays while using Android Auto maps. It also still plays while using AppRadio. So I'm willing to bet it will work with Apple just the same.
    sean  Feb 08, 2018
    I'm not sure about Apple CarPlay or Apple Maps. However, it can do that with Android Auto.
    michael  Feb 07, 2018
    Yes, you can listen to any source, including the radio, while using the Carplay interface for navigation or other Carplay functions. When a text message comes in you can select it, listen to it, and then the current source will continue playing.

    This looks like it has only one USB connection. So if I am connected to a phone for Android Auto, I can't listen to music from a USB drive, correct?
    ned  Jan 26, 2018

    Correct. Only one USB connection. If you use Android Auto, that will consume the USB connection and not allow you to play music from a USB drive. You could try loading the music to your phone and using Android Auto (Google Play Music) to play it.
    andrew  Jan 31, 2018
    Yes that's correct. Honestly, the Android Auto interface isn't very good, very slow and "laggy" if that makes sense. But using a USB drive works very well. My wife uses Pandora via Bluetooth, which has a great interface. I extended the USB connection to inside the glove box, where we keep 64 GB drive installed full of music as backup if she gets in a weak 4G signal area.
    ken  Jan 31, 2018
    Correct, it only has one USB.
    kc  Jan 31, 2018
    That is correct. I solved that issue by purchasing a 128gb micro sd card for my phone and filled it with the same music as the 128gb thumb drive I use when not plugging my phone in for android auto.

    I have a 2010 F150 with a back up camera that displays in the rear view mirror. Does this unit allow an existing factory camera to be wired in to this unit?
    jason  Jan 18, 2018

    I installed the pioneer after-market camera with this stereo. I'm not sure about compatibility with factory unit. That stereo is a tight fit in my dodge. When I load/ eject a disc the face gets stuck and I have to push it in pretty hard to get it back in place. Hopefully Ford has larger opening. Also. It takes awhile to load Apple CarPlay. Not long, but it's by no means instantaneous once you connect to phone.
    john  Jan 19, 2018
    The unit has an analog "rca" video input for a rear view camera. Also is set up to turn on automatically when in reverse in the wiring harness. Just need to see if existing system has the same video feed.
    blake  Jan 18, 2018
    It might require you to cut and replace the factory ends off of your wiring harness, but since there is a video connection on the back, it is possible.
    robert  Jan 18, 2018
    Yes. It has inputs for two aux video sources. I have a reverse camera, which is triggered by putting the gear selector in reverse. I have added a second camera at the front of the vehicle for parking assistance.
    michael  Jan 18, 2018
    I am un-familiar with the specific wiring of the F150, however, because the camera is linked to a display in your rear-view mirror. It is unlikely that will change when you replace the stereo, unless the factory stereo somehow controls the camera directly. This system is designed to receive any camera input via a single RCA connector. If you desire to show the camera on this stereo unit rather than the rear view mirror, that may involve re-wiring the factory camera as well as re-terminating or using an adapter to connect the factory camera to the RCA jack. Consult a Ford dealer or Crutchfield professional to explore your options for your specific car.

    can you get nav from google maps through this HD or dose this unit have nav functions??
    joseph  Jan 16, 2018
    4 answers
    You can use Google Maps if you have an Android phone with Android Auto capability. The head unit has no built-in nav, but instead relies on your phone to provide any mapping capability. If you have an iPhone, you can use Apple Maps via Apple CarPlay. Waze also works via Android Auto or the Pioneer AppRadiio mode (which is total garbage, sadly).
    kevin  Jan 17, 2018
    You can attach additional navigation unit Pioneer AVIC-U280 to the yellow port on the back. Alternatively you can use Apple Maps if you have iPhone or Google Maps and Waze if you have Android phone. These require data connection. If you are in area where you have no phone reception you will need to use offline maps. Navmii might work with Android but I haven't tested it.
    angel  Jan 17, 2018
    Google maps or Waze from your phone. Or Maps from iphone.

    This unit says it plays lossless FLAC audio files (up to 192kHz/24-bit) from flash media, does this include off of an iphone when hooked up to apple carplay?
    shamen  Jan 05, 2018
    1 answer
    It looks like Apple's iTunes does not support FLAC but will require that you change that FLAC file to another type when you load it to play on an iPhone. Because of this, the only way I know to play FLAC files on this receiver is through a MSC or MTP USB device like a thumb drive with the files on them. My Bio:

    I played with a different Pioneer model at a brick & mortar store today, and it wouldn't display album artwork. Does this one? And, if so, how does it work? Does it need to be plugged in as well as BT paired? I couldn't physically plug my phone in to the unit I played with since the phone side USB connection was different. Thanks.

    I don't use this unit often, as it's in my wife's car (she loves it). I do know that when she is streaming music with Pandora, using the built-in Pandora app, it does display the album artwork. I haven't tried it with something like Slacker or Amazon Music. I believe it does display album art if I'm using the Pi Music Player playing music directly from my phone, as long as I have the artwork also downloaded and stored on the phone.
    ken  Dec 27, 2017
    I believe it depends on what source you are playing. For Sirius XM, the artwork is displayed probably from the satellite feed. For a USB thumb drive, the artwork comes from the tags on the file. Pandora Bluetooth also displays artwork. Android Auto displays artwork as well.
    andrew  Dec 27, 2017
    I have an android phone and it will display my artwork when I am using Android Auto as well as when I am just playing via bluetooth. It also works when I play files on my USB thumb drive. As long as you have the ID3 tags properly set up on the music file, it will work.
    chris  Dec 23, 2017
    You have to be plugged in via usb. But this has car play and android auto so they would show artwork. Just via Bluetooth does not.

    will i be obtaining stock radio equalizer and crossover if i use the iDatalink to get all of my cars original features or will my equalizer and crossovers be through the new head unit?
    shane  Nov 29, 2017
    1 answer
    All the vehicles we have looked at so far do not retain the equalizer as that is in the stock radio and comes out this it is removed. However, that's not an issue because the new radio will have one and its usually better. The crossovers that direct specific parts of the frequency range to different drivers should be kept as those are usually built into the amp that powers the speakers or in the speakers themselves. Radio's will output a full range sound which is what a new radio will do with this interface.

    How well does this unit play music from a USB thumb drive? Would it work with a 128GB drive? My stock unit needs to re-index the drive every time I turn on the car so it can be several minutes before I can select songs. The song that was playing when I turned the car off keeps playing automatically but if the unit isn't done re-indexing when that song finishes it starts playing the first album on the drive instead of the next song on the current album. Thank you.
    mark  Oct 23, 2017

    The Pioneer is great at playing compatible music files from a USB mass storage drive. There is no listed capacity limit for the drive; the stereo will recognize up to 1,500 folders and up to 15,000 total files. You will find this information, and more, by clicking the "Details" tab on the stereo's main webpage and scrolling down below the "Features & Specs" table. The stereo will index the drive the first time it is connected but will not have to re-index unless the contents of the drive are changed. I hope that helps. My Bio:

    How long does is take the avh-2330 from the time you turn the key on to the time you can use radio and more specifically the time you would be able to see the reverse camera if you quickly put it in revers after starting car?

    Not long about 10 to 15 seconds. It will have the warning for operating while driving but if you put it in reverse it switches to the back up cam without you having to click OK first.
    trevis  Oct 20, 2017
    It boots up pretty quick, within 15 seconds (depending on how fast you hit the "agree to terms" button). The reverse camera is maybe a 3-5 second delay.
    patrick  Oct 20, 2017
    It is instant, I love the unit, highly recommend!
    sean edward  Oct 20, 2017
    I installed mine a couple of months ago. It takes the deck maybe 10-20 seconds to boot up to play, but when I put the car in reverse before the deck is ready, my reverse camera does come on before the stereo is booted up.
    duane  Oct 19, 2017
    The reverse camera is very fast - it will activates within 3 seconds of starting your car if your quickly put it in reverse. It takes longer for the audio stuff to boot up - if I leave it on an FM station when I turn it off it's about 12 seconds after start up that I hear audio.

    Have to say I loved the UI and the sound of this pioneer unit. But playback via Bluetooth was torture. The music speeds and slows throughout the stream. I used an Android device. Seems pioneer is having issues connecting devices. I returned mine and got a Kenwood. This likely did not answer your question but know it's not just your unit.
    karl  Oct 08, 2017
    when you plug in the sync cable it wants to auto connect to your phone. If the cord is damaged it may do it over and over. Try charging from the 12v cigarette plug and connecting with just Bluetooth.
