Bright lights and stupid control design detract from an otherwise good product.

Timothy J. Erwine, Amazon

  • Summary: Accent lights have 2 settings: 1)Solar flare and 2)Spotlight. Seriously, this radio is a hazardous distraction... Pros: Lots of features, bluetooth pairing works well Cons: Lights are ridiculously bright and distracting, volume dial is also main menu button and I often entrer some menu and change a bunch of settings when I simply wanted to turn it up or down(also, entering menu PREVENTS you from turning down. Been embarrassed more than once).

Working...even with Android

Roger A. Ewing, Amazon

  • Summary: I am hoping to update this review with more positive information. The unit gives an Error 10 when trying to pair to my Android SGS III. According to several other reviews here, it works on Android...at least on whatever Android they have. I'll be calling Pioneer on Monday to see if they have any thoughts. Will post back. Update 4/15/2013 I spoke with Pioneer tech support. They said the BT must be bad on the unit. They would not do an exchange.

no automatic dimmer!

  • Summary: The display is much too dim during the day, and a bit bright at night. I think this depends a lot on mounting location and angle, as it will appear brighter if canted toward the driver, and dimmer if pointing straight toward the back seat (ie not toward the driver's eyes.) The clear plastic over the display is curved and really really smooth/shiny, so it will cause reflections no matter what angle it's mounted, and the reflections are brighter than the display making it...

A lot of money for something overcomplicated in my opinion.

  • Summary: It does everything it says it does, although I never got the DAB radio to connect and I found the flashing lights to be annoying; although surprisingly not distracting while driving. I did find it to be too complicated to use rapidly at traffic lights, so I sold it to a friend who seems very satisfied with it. I will say that it's configurable to a fault, although it takes some fiddling to get it right since the factory settings are obnoxious and the menus seem a bit...

Illumination is dangerously bright

A M REDMOND, Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: This unit has good sound once you balance your speakers Fwd-Rear and L-R. DAB seems to work but has way too many bands and station pre set sets groups that I have not understood and probably do not have the time to organise. The ariel, which you have to buy separatrely, attaches to the windscreen which advertises you have the unit fitted. Not good and looks messy. I had the unit fitted professionally including the arial. CD is good.

Schon ein wenig enttäuscht

Dennis Heine, Amazon
6 October 2014
  • Summary: Ich fahren einen Citroen Berlingo. Türlautsprecher und Hochtöner sind nicht original (Gladen)! Unterm Beifahrersitz befindet sich ein Pioneer Subwoofer! Mit dem Original Radio war der Klang bei USB schon sehr gut! Beim Radiohören war es aber nicht so schön, deswegen die Idee mit einem DAB+ Radio! DAB+ klingt natürlich sehr viel besser wie UKW aber der Sound vom USB Stick ist nicht besser geworden, da hätte ich mehr erwartet.

Gutes Radio, aber mit einigen schwächen.

Endrik Strauhs, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: Habe dieses Radio nun 1 Jahr in gebrauch gehabt. Nun ist es zurück gegangen zu Amazon. Der Hauptgrund der Reklamation ist bei mir das klappernde Bedienteil, welches je nach Straßenzustand und Drehzahl mal lauter oder leiser war. Tierisch nervig! Um ein paar Punkte von Vorrednern aufzugreifen.. Die Displaybeleuchtung kann bei Fahrzeugen, wo das Radio weit oben im Amaturenbrett eingebracht ist, zu hell sein fast sogar blenden im dunkeln.

Ordentlich..

Vitalis14, Amazon

  • Summary: Das Pioneer DAB Radio ist ein gutes Radio, es ist aufgeräumt und sehr einfach zu bedienen. Je doch ziehe ich zwei Punkte da ich finde das der Tuner von Pioneer nicht mit einem DAB Radio von JVC mithalten kann und ich es für 100€ bei Media Markt kaufen könnte. Was mir auch noch sehr gut gefällt ist der EQ & MIXTRAX.
