Excerpt: Bought this back in March 14. I fought it very tempremental and buggy. When swirching between apps i.e media player to satnav, the head unit would lock up which meant having to disconnect and reset the iphone in order to re-establish connection. at that stage would have given it 2 stars Pioneer have now released a new App called Live and this had radically improved all functionality. Switching between apps is effortless and smooth and its like owning a new machine.
Excerpt: Unfortunately it won't mirror my iphone screen onto the stereo screen it just comes up with it's forbidden to use it while driving, I don't know if that's because of a recent update or not, can someone please help, I want to be able to watch films while parked with friends, but everything apart from my iphone screen not coming up on the stereo display it's a good radio I recommend it.
Excerpt: Went to get this as a replacement for the standard unit on my audi a4 as it looked quite good. Reserved it online and collected it with fitting. The guy, Chris fitting it couldn't have been nicer and done a top job. Would recommend halfords at kittybrewster to anyone, top guys! Thanks!
Excerpt: Bought this to replace my BMW E90's O.E stereo due to a display fault and I'm glad of my purchase. It fits like it is itself O.E and the sound quality is much better for it even on the stock speakers. I use it with my galaxy S4 and it works faultlessly, I did my research before buying so new what extra cables/adapters were needed and would recommend buyers to check Pioneers website for compatibility.
Excerpt: A good concept however it's just a radio if you don't have a smartphone. I have a 1st generation ipod Nano and the new 7th gen and neither are compatible ! Even via the dedicated iphone USB connector. I wanted to be able to connect one to the rear USB or maybe a flash drive however the rear USB is ONLY for system upgrades and not advertised in that respect. Bluetooth sound quality noticeably not as good as direct cable.
Excerpt: This pioneer head unit would be a welcome addition to any car, the thing that makes this stand out from its competition is it's simplicity. If I have my bluetooth already on before I get in the car the pioneer will automatically try to connect it which works flawlessly! Another brilliant feature is what the unit is based on and that is it's compatability with smartphone apps whether you have a Samsung note, Sony experia or a Iphone.
Excerpt: Overall, this is a great product. It does exactly what it claims and compared to how much a dedicated Sat Nav unit would cost, it's a bargain. All I would say is that the software isn't 100% reliable at reconnecting after you power off. Sometimes you need to force quit and restart it. This can be a bit annoying, but it's not the end of the world.
Excerpt: This is a great product. It has a lightning usb for iphone5/5S/5C and Ipods, a seperate usb for Androids phones, bluetooth and parrot handfree in built. using an MHL adater with the HDMI cable you can mirror Android phones and using a Lightning AV adapter you can mirror your Apple products. Three wires must come out 1 USB for android, 1 USB for Apple products and an HDMI to mirror these products.
