    This receiver saved me $30,000!

    Had this installed a few months ago in our 2003 Honda Odyssey and so far it's been great! It's my wife's daily driver and it has all the features she wanted and is easy to use. It looks and sounds great, and she loves that she can even change the LED colors (not a huge deal, but it's just a nice little thing that she enjoys). So how did this thing save me $30K? Well, she had been talking about getting a new vehicle and after discussing it together I came to realize that a lot of the features she wanted in a new car could be added with a new receiver. And since our current vehicle runs and looks like new, and is PAID FOR, I was more than reluctant to buy another one. Since we installed this unit, the subject of buying a new car hasn't come up again! If I had one complaint it would be that there is no volume knob, something I really miss on a lot of newer receivers. But no star deduction because we knew about that going in, so can't really fault Pioneer for it. All in all, this unit looks and sounds great!

    I bought this stereo to replace the factory radio in my 1998 Ford pickup. It turned into a cannibal, dead batteries ensued. I got it at a very marked down price, and installation was free, a good bonus! The unit itself powers the stock speakers quite well, equalization is a big help in making it sound better, it has an HD radio tuner which is great. It has a hook up for satellite radio. I would have preferred a built in tuner, but for the price, I'm not crying. It will play DVDs, CDs, and MP3 CDs. It fritzes over a data DVD. On the other side, the attached USB port handled my 128 Gb thumb drive easily. The 40 Gb+ MP3s on it at 192 kb sampling rate sound nice, and it handles playing random choices without a hitch. Last, it paired to an LG V40 ThinQ Android in seconds, the phone functions work like any good car system, sound really good to people who call while I drive, and onboard music from the phone was nice. I am quite pleased given the price I paid and got installation too for my casual chore truck.

    Nelson installed my new radio after I explained to the original sales person and also to the installer on that day that my main reason for installing a new radio was in order that a USB port be installed as well, so that I could play my "1000" cd collection that i downloaded onto a thumb drive. After completing this daunting task I plugged it in to my and my cousin's samsung smart TV and all 1000 albums show up in "alphabetical" order. I also plugged the thumb drive into an old Dell desktop pc i own and lo and behold all 1000 cds show in "alphabetical" order. But after installing my new Pioneer radio the installer needed to provide me with an upgrade because the radio didn't recognize my data. After installing the second radio all of my cds came up on the screen but they were all mixed up! You need to page through hundreds of albums to locate the specific album you would like to play. This is unbelievable to me that the new Pioneer doesn't have the ability that our TVs and old desktop pcs have! I just don't get it. There must be a fix for this problem but i wasn't offered any help to resolve it the day it was installed. He tried but was at a loss of what to do. So at this point I need to pull over and park in order that I can find and select the album I want to play. It is very time consuming, to say the least.

    I bought this unit to replace my dated looking 2014 Subaru factory radio. I really wanted HD radio ability with bluetooth connectivity. Pros: Looks great, very customizable, sounds great! For those who want better connection with their phone app, there is a Pioneer app that allows video and phone nav (like Waze) to display on the unit. The USB connection is needed, you can't use that feature via bluetooth. Cons: I have an android phone (Galaxy s9), the unit automatically connects and my phone goes to Android Auto mode. This is ok. But if I'm listening to the radio, or my USB thumb drive, the unit auto switches to bluetooth when any signal, ie text or email alert comes to the phone. So, I'm frequently switching back from the bluetooth to radio/USB. This is VERY aggravating messing with the unit when driving. It's why I'm 3 starring this unit. I may return it for an Android friendly unit

    I like this stereo a lot. I think the sound is amazing and I love that it connects by bluetooth to my phone. The connection happens immediately when I get in the car so there is basically no delay before music starts. I mainly play through the bluetooth setting. I would use the spotify setting but it struggles for some reason and won't update which song is playing with the name, album cover, etc. I'm not sure if this is an error through spotify or through the radio, but it works better on Bluetooth. I also wish it could show me the map when I have navigation going on my phone. But still, I love the touch screen, the look of it, and most importantly, the sound is great.

    Great so far! Plenty of features, and easy to use. A number of color and background settings, so it will look good any vehicle. Bluetooth phone calls are clear, and the volume is adjustable (independent of music volume). A couple of notes about installation, though: 1. The Bluetooth microphone is small but will be visible, so discuss with your installer if you want it in a certain place. 2. There’s a usb cable that I wasn’t expecting. It’s not something I’ll use, and I don’t like the look of it, so I’m having it removed.

    I had this installed in my 2011 Toyota Camry because the Bluetooth went out some time ago, and I wanted to be able to use my phone for making hands free calls and for listening to my music. The Bluetooth works wonderfully for both purposes. Two improvements that would have allowed me to give this five stars instead of four would be if the screen was brighter (when it’s sunny outside I have a very difficult time seeing the screen at all) and if it had knob controls rather than touchscreen controls only. Lots of presets available and great sound.

    The only reason I gave it 3 stars instead of 2 is because of the price. If you are low on a budget, then you can consider this unit, otherwise just go with a better unit (I recommend Kenwood - 6.8" - Android Auto/Apple CarPlay™ with Built-in Navigation) Pros - cheap Cons - very poor touch screen sensitivity, when using USB to listen to the music, it will auto switch to my phones bluetooth and stop the music even tho there wasn't a call coming in, the microphone is not good at all.

    I purchased this radio and am well pleased with the radio. Good quality and loaded with features. The response speed is average , not fast or slow. The screen resolution is good. I really have nothing negative to say about this radio. I would definitely purchase it again and recommend it. Pandora , Spotify, Sirius xm compatible. Also, has HD radio. You can also play movies from USB flash drive. Mpeg, avi , and mkv formats.

    My wife and I love this Pioneer Car Stereo! The screen is just right size-wise and being able to slide a CD in the slot (at the top) without waiting for the whole front to drop down is a major plus. The functions are all easy to see and understand as well. It's an HD radio of course and the Blue Tooth works great for cell phone use also. My only complaint is that in general no one offers a CD player that will hold multiple CD's anymore. Oh well.

    Great features, although my car is to old to use all of them, it's so far an awesome deck and a huge upgrade from the stock stereo. DVD quality is fairly good for such a 6 in screen. Only 4 stars due to not being able to use all features yet as my car isnt compatible with the on screen vehicle management and all that. Would definitely buy again, and will definitely be transferring to new car when the time comes.

    My stock radio finally died and this is the one I chose as a replacement. It looks nice, works well but I would prefer my old one back because I don't have a stupid warning message every time I start my car! This is super annoying when you start the car and the last time you drove you left the radio at a blaring volume. You cannot access volume etc until the message is cleared.

    I also got the Sirius XM tuner with this, and I really like the combo. I would like the mute feature to toggle on and off with a simple press, rather than a long press. I would rather get to my Sirius XM with one menu selection (like I can for Pandora, which I don't regularly use). The Bluetooth works well with my phone and the radio. I also got a backup camera and really like it. Overall, this works well for me.

    This unit was a huge upgrade from my factory installed unit. Five stars across the board with the exception of Bluetooth not being able to provide accurate song descriptions, seems to always be one song behind, but that doesn't bother me. DVD playback only works if the emergency brake is engaged, which was vague in the product description, "Supports DVD playback during long trips". Anyway, everything else has exceeded my expectations so I am happy!

    This was a much delayed purchase I should have picked up sooner! Radio was easy to install (with a little advice) and has great features for the price.. Has all the "bells and whistles" I need, and a few I won't be using, but others may find useful; such as dash camera and backup camera options. Love the Bluetooth, and the sound is much better that the OEM Nissan radio that was installed in the vehicle.

    Loving our new Pioneer touch screen car stereo. Easy to use, feature rich, great sound. Our special included a $ discount and installation, which took about an hour. Dave the installer rocks - showed me how to get started with BlueTooth and general use as well as a quick overview in how I can use my old ipod or get a backup camera installed. Overall, very happy.

    My only complaint is that unlike new vehicles that have built in players that dim according to the time of day, this one doesn’t. Not only that, but when you try to dim down the brightness of the screen it doesn’t lower. When the sun goes down at 5:30pm and you’re still driving around you have this bright screen illuminating your vehicle. Overall I’m happy with the product

    Got this unit for my truck. Wanted to get something new, and add a backup camera too. Did the installation myself. Even added a bypass module to get around the DVD issue. Now my kids can watch movies anytime...even while I'm driving. I don't use Bluetooth. If I want to listen to music from my phone, I just plug in the headphone jack I have attached to the radio into my phone. I'll update if things change.

    Our radio in our car was broken and we wanted to replace it with a new one. When shopping for a new one I found that we could also have a backup camera installed. So glad we chose this radio and to have Best Buy install it for us. When we put the car in reverse we now have a backup camera in our dashboard!

    This Pioneer radio is great. It takes very little time to familiarize yourself to the functions and controls. I have only 1 issue; I was not aware the existing steering wheel mounted controls on my car would no longer function (for the audio system), but I have adapted to this rather easily. The display is bright, clear, and very easy to read.
