Summary: I like the item but had some initial problems with it functioning correctly. I would and have recommended this item to other but I also inform them of all of the pros and cons. I believe and informed decision help for a better response and increases the thought process to make a purchase.
Summary: Very good receiver. You only have to considerate that is only compatible with iPhone 4/4S. iPhone 3GS only with jailbreak and software to force the video output. No way to use an iPhone 5 or newer. Very accurate gps signal. Excellent and customizable sound. The equalizer is nice, but can be better.
I was able to get mine working with iPhone4s IOS 7!

Summary: I have had the radio for a couple of years. It was professionally installed originally. I'll grant you the install was a bit of a kludge in my 2004 F-150. They had to add a toggle switch to the dashboard which I flip on and off to get the radio working each time I connect my phone. Why, I have no idea. But it worked okay for two years. I use Motion X GPS, listen to music and also have the backup camera wired into the display. Very cool.
Summary: (sorry for my bad english) When I found this model in the internet I thought that it was a marvelous car stereo, but the reality was so different. Since that I finished the installation, the technician said me that this models of "appradios" has many issues and in fact, thus it was. I has this radio 3 weeks and until this day I cant sync with my iPhone 4, simply it's impossible.
Summary: I feel like I was just mugged. $300 down the drain. Pioneer is not trying to help its thousands of customer who bought this garbage. It will not work with any Apple device any longer. This may even be grounds for class action lawsuit since they licensed the ability to sell this as an Apple compatible product. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY WITH PIONEER! I should have known better since this isn't the first time they burned me.
Pros: It looks pretty when it's off.
Cons: Rarely works, Pioneer has miserable customer service, Firmware Updates do more harm than help, After iOS 7 not a single device connects to it, I've been told on multiple occasions that after this last update Pioneer will not be supporting this any longer
They are working on the known iOS compatibility issue
