Summary: I have had a great experience with this unit. It does everything well. Easy install, bright display, easy to use controls. I use this with my Samsung Galaxy phone on bluetooth for most music and it works very well, no issues. My ipod works great with it, unfortunately the sound quality of the ipod is inferior to the Samsung...it comes though easily as I have this unit paired with 2 Rockford Power Amps, Rockford Power Subs, and the old style MB Quart midbass/tweeters.
Summary: All of the reviews of this unit are accurate, but it is VERY important to understand that virtually every single one of these has a problem that causes them to lock up and the touch screen will stop accepting inputs. If you live in a colder climate or have a vehicle that prevents direct sunlight from ever touching this unit, you should be okay. Just BE ADVISED! Direct sunlight WILL cause the touch screen to lock up!
Summary: This bad boy is a monster!! There's so many things this thing does its ridiculous!! I especially like love the detachable face option because I live in "The Hood" and I wouldn't dare leave anything this great alone.
Summary: Let me start off by saying, I did a lot of research before purchasing this unit. I put it in a 99 Suburban and if you know suburbans only have a 1 1/2 din for the factory head unit. So I had to purchase an installation kit that was 420$ to relocate the heater controls down were the original CD player was at. Not a big deal, I had to cut all of the old plastic molding inside the dash for it to fit the new metal bracket in.
Summary: Amazon this is a good way to ruin your reputation; Product SUCKS, waste of my hard earned money!!!!! this is a good product if you like throwing away your money! I bought this product from you guys as a gift for my son, he recently told me that it no longer works, typical.......he said he tried to contact the company and they would not talk to him or honor the repair or exchange of the product, what is up with that?
Summary: I've owned this bad boy for about a month now and I am liking some things and not liking others. First the good: - Great screen. Videos look great! - Good sound quality. Paired this with an ARC Audio amp and Focal speakers and it sounds clean and sweet. - Love the tilt feature. I have this in my custom console down lower and being able to tilt it up is a must. Now the not so good: Ok...its really just one thing. But its REALLLY annoying me.
Great Stereo, How in the world do you set a custom background!

Summary: After tireless hours of installing this bad boy (my cars fault, not the stereo). I got this installed and it looks GREAT. I love the stereo. Great sound, quick to respond. I use bluetooth on it all the time. It connects in a flash when the car is turned on. It even shows ID3 Tag info from android via bluetooth (Where it shows artist and song titles).
Summary: I bought this for my wife who is a traveling case manager. I have a 2009 F-150 with the Sync system and she has an 06 Sonata, the Pioneer AVHP8400 is very competitive in clarity and ergonomics. The hands free calls, the pandora, dvd player, and GPS ready are all top notch in my opinion. No problems at all thus far.
Summary: I bought this as it is supposed to be the 2012 flagship model. The display could be better in terms of vibrancy of colors and brightness, and sometimes it takes me three presses of the Bluetooth icon in different places for the deck to activate my selection.
