A terrific value for a receiver with a lot of great features
4 February 2013
Summary: I've bought 2 of these receivers-I put one in my Scion XB a couple of years ago, and liked the features enough to put another one in my wife's Pontiac Vibe. Her car has the optional Monsoon sound system, and with this head unit, it sounds incredible. The stock unit definitely was the weak link. There are more advanced units for sure, but in terms of value for money, I think I got a great deal-not once, but twice.
I would buy it over again as long as it was a good deal.

Summary: We had a choice between this double din and the pioneer AVH-P3200, and I am very happy with the choice we made. It has improved the sound inside our Land Cruiser, even before we've had a chance to replace the speakers and add a sub. The high volt preouts will make sure my PPi amps are happy. I matched this H/U with Focal 6.5s +components, Alumapro 12, ppi PC2300.2, and PC4400.2. I have owned Pioneer DEH-P3400,3500.
Conclusion: I've always been a Pioneer H/U fan. This thing is awesome! The Bluetooth music streaming allows me to play Pandora, Spotify, or MP3s from my phone. I commute 52 miles each way to work and have this bangin the whole way and it never misses a beat. Clean, clear, and powerful. You cant beat this for!
Conclusion: Installation went well and I'm really happy with the performance. I particularly like the bluetooth, satellite radio and i-pod functions. I don't like the complexity of the manual. I feel it inhibits using everything I paid for because I can't figure it out. Overall, I like it and it serves its function well.
Summary: Pioneer has always been a good Brand and they continue to be so. The radio is as described, as i have already installed it, is working great. It has a lot of features so it might take awhile to get used to the controls but nothing nobody can handle. I paired my HTC Arrive Windows Phone with no problem. I don't know why Nokia is programmed into the radio but don't let that throw you off.
Summary: All the features are great! Love the direct iPod control and hands-free bluetooth. I had a little trouble installing the unit because of the size compared to my current unit but after I figured that out its great.
