    what a great stereo

    I’ve had this car stereo for seven months now. I absolutely love it, although everything has its downfall. Here are some things I don’t like about it. For one the volume knob is also the menu button, so a lot of times when I go to turn down the volume I hit the button by mistake and mess up the settings while driving, which is a distraction. I have over come that problem since having it, although it does still happen time to time. Also the phone app is crap, I had to uninstall it because every time the radio felt like it, it would take over my phone with a pop up to move to the app or open the app again; another distraction other than that I love the stereo.

    The stereo itself works as it’s supposed to

    The stereo itself is perfect. It has a wonderful audio menu to choose crossovers for the front and back, loudness setting, bass option, and much more. The colors are also flawless and make it look amazing. The Bluetooth hands free is fantastic. This stereo is perfect. The only issue? The pioneer app that is supposed to control this thing SUCKS. IT CRASHES EVERY TIME I TRY TO OPEN IT!! Hopefully they update the app but it seems like others are having the same issue for a while so it might not be coming soon. I was upset because the features the app can do are very cool. But at least the stereo can still work without the app.

    Bad unit

    Installed easily and everything set up and paired correctly. Next day no sound from rear speakers. No fader in the menu. It was there when I set it up. Did a full reset and it came back. Later that day no sound for other person on a call. It was there now nothing. Next day, scans channels and will not stop until you hit the menu (volume) key. No presets, only scans. Can't manually adjust, only scans. I pulled it out and returned it for a Kenwood which is working perfectly. I'm sure it was just a bad unit but not a good impression for the first Pioneer I've purchased. Never again.

    Pioneer Deck

    The sound this deck puts out is amazing! I had a stock deck with stock speakers in my XB and the sound was horrible. Giovanni the tech at Best Buy said the deck would make a difference in sound but I never expected this. I have yet to change the speakers because the sound is so good, the only reason I did not give this deck a 5 is because of the sensitivity of the CD player function but everything else is awesome.

    Very Poor Quality

    The FIRST one wouldn't hold a Bluetooth connection to a music source. Every time I got into the car I had to re-pair the unit to the music source, even if I was out of the car for just seconds. It was replaced under warranty. The SECOND one wouldn't hold a playlist. I'd be driving down the road and it would begin playing songs other than from the playlist I'd selected. On the third occasion I went with a different unit.

    Buttons too small and unclear

    For me, key buttons are hard to find, too small, and their symbols to small to read. For me, the written instructions are not clear. It has taken me a lot of trial and lack of success to figure things out. Some of the largest buttons are for functions that I could care less about. The Bluetooth function annoyingly answers my phone when I don’t want it to. Besides all that, the sound quality is great!

    Amazing BT/CD receiver!

    Purchased this for my 20 year old Celica that still had the stock radio and hated it. I wanted to play my own music straight from my phone. There's many options from the color of the display—you can choose 2 different colors at once—to the way your audio (music/podcast/etc.) is being heard. You can change the equalizer, balance, bass, vocal and much more!

    I bought this stereo for my husband (who has been driving without a radio in his truck for a few years now). Within a couple of hours, he had the radio installed as well as four new speakers, and he is in HEAVEN. I also received great service in the store, because I had no idea what I was looking for initially. Definitely NOT disappointed!

    I thought this would have been an upgrade from my Sony, but I never experienced more problems with this unit than any other. I couldn’t get the radio to dial in on a station or it to even play cds, and the app is pointless. After having my phone connected to bluetooth it would drop my calls and constantly prompt Voice control randomly.

    Works pretty well, sounds good, bluetooth feature works well. I do have 2 dislikes though. The radio station buttons are tiny and its not safe to change stations while driving. The thing I dislike the most is that if you are listening to music, the clock goes away. So you have no idea what time it is during your commute.

    I absolutely love this radio!!I have it in 3 of my vehicles, I like it so much. It connect my lg styling 4+ to it via Bluetooth or USB if I also want to charge my phone at the same time. The only issue I have is the app. To me it isn't worth it, it's hard to navigate so I just dont install it.

    I don't have the greatest speakers in the world but this stereo improved the sound from them greatly. I still need to replace the front speakers though. Stock speakers just don't cut it. The hands free feature is great and being able to put music on a flash drive to play and control through my smart phone is great.

    The stereo is fine for what I wanted it for, my only complaint is that the Bluetooth connection requires you to download a Pioneer app, my phone is low on memory space so I had to delete some things I didn’t want to delete to download the app. Otherwise I like the stereo.

    The display kept saying amp connection error message. I was about to return it but decided to check all my connections again. All the connections were correct BUT one of the speaker wires was touching the metal dashboard of my truck. Added some electrical tape and fixed the problem.

    I have used the radio and the cd and they’re both very high quality, Pioneer has done it again for me! My first unit was a KP 500 back in the 70’s !!! This is about the 8th or 9th unit I have bought and have always been very pleased with their performance!!!!!

    I have always bought Pioneer products and bought this product to replace a JVC radio that was giving me problems. The Pioneer has Blue Tooth which I like and able to use my I Pod and Satellite radio. It is easy to use.

    It a very nice easy to use CD tuner with many features found in more expensive car radios. I love the fact that it will play flack files through the USB and has 3 sets of high volt preouts. Pioneer gives you the best bang for your buck.

    The radio was reasonably priced at $99.99. I had free installation. The radio has a lot of features. I like having blue tooth in my truck. I like the USB for playing music I want to listen to while traveling.
