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
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.
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!
Summary: You get what you pay for. The sleek look without the cost. I bought this radio to replace my still working kenwood because it wouldn't play my iTunes Match, this radio did. Interface is a little buggy, but works most of the time. It isn't what I'd call "true" touch screen cause you still have to navigate lists with touch buttons, but cannot directly select what you want on screen without scrolling through.
Summary: I just had bought a newer car and the first thing I wanted to do was upgrade the stereo system in it. When I took to a local sounds system shop known for their installations, the guy showed me the AppRadio. It was the first one to come out and he showed me all the kool features. Since I was planning on spending up to $1000 on a system to have both radio/CD/Ipod features along with a GSP I was excited to see this was about half that cost.
Pros: Has nice size display screen
Cons: Plays/works on its own time table, Display screen has terrible glare even adjusting the background, No power off button, Firmware update wouldn't take.
Summary: I don't like aftermarket units as it is because they look ugly and out of place - with it's piano finish and dance club lighting - in current automobile dashboards. I picked the AppRadio because it's simple and is the least ugly looking unit out there - it's almost just a plain screen. But that's the only positive I can say about it. Pioneer and it's AppRadio is by far the worst experience I've had with an audio company and it's aftermarket unit.
Summary: Way too many glitches and just the worst customer service. You can't make a stereo that only works with an iPhone when you know they come out with one every every year because it will not work with the new iPhone at all.
Summary: This radio is the worst incarnation of a car stereo I have ever had! First of all they lock it down so tight that you have to do everyhting just right or you'll be driving down the road with no music! It's actually more distracting going through the BS to get to use it than it is actually using it. The interface is just not friendly at all and the apps they are creating are trying to skirt the interface and make it useable but you just cant polish a turd.
Summary: No joke!!! I should read more in details when I got this radio. Don't get me wrong, it has some good stuff but the down side or cons has more weight than the pros. I won't go explain them, just read the other post. But what I REALLY hate now that the iPhone 5 come out, we all stuck with a unit that we won't be able to use to its full if you get the new phone.
