Informed Purchaser

  • 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.

I was able to get mine working with iPhone4s IOS 7!

CRAIG LYKINS "Craig", Amazon
30 December 2013
  • 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.

I feel disgusting! I just lost $300!

DaveGarner, CNET
23 November 2013
  • 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

******DO NOT BUY********

William Fernandez "Fanblade", Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: The Appradio DA01 & 02 has an incompatiblity issue with the iOS7 software update for the Apple iPhone. After emails and phone calls with Pioneer, they are still looking into it and have NO ETA on a software patch! I'm without a usable unit in my car and they will not do anything to support me or any other customer. *****DO NOT BUY THIS RADIO!**** Plus, there a ton of issues with the interface.

Pioneer SPH-DA01 AppRadio

Mr. Matt, Amazon
22 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this as a replacement radio. I wanted something that sounded good and looked good. I just wish I bought it new with all of the extras.i only use the radio at the moment because the plug for the iPod and the iPhone weren't included in the box and the mic wasn't included either so I only use the radio but I can't complain I got it at a good price and just the radio alone is worth it for me.

  • Summary: Pioneer should try to keep the quality of apple products quanse proposes to manufacture products to the same customers of the brand. Incompatible with new models of the iPhone, has no quality tap the touch screen is very slow in handling. Bad deal!
