4 November 2014
Summary: My first system I paid full price with the install dealer and it was stolen 5 months later. Buying a second system with Amazon, I was able to save 50% than buying from install dealer again. Makes my Chysler 300 feel brand new. I guess when I retire I will try all its bells and whistles and save money buying unsubscribing to SirusXM.
Sound quality is FREAKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOD My RX330 stock amplifier is booming like a bomb
18 July 2014
Summary: Pros, Sound quality is FREAKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOD My RX330 stock amplifier is booming like a bomb!! You MUST turn on the LOUDNESS mode ('low' is good enough for me) Cons, As others said, too many restrictive rules... To remove those restricted rules, simply do a cable bypass according to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKOoZTZ1HT4 I have tested and it WORKS!!!!
Summary: So after reviewing this system both on the pioneer site itself and other reviews posted here I decided to give this head unit a shot. So far I'm impressed at the functionality of the system. Installed it myself due to prior experience of having someone else do it and not connecting it right to get the full experience of the system. This unit replaced an x930bt that was stolen while my car was in the shop.
Summary: The thing I hate about the gps is that you have to use the EXACT address. Nothing like using google on your phone. For example, if you want to go to 777 E. Walker ave, Long Beach, Ca 90XXX. You must use the east or west before the street name. While that isn't much of an issue you also must specify whether it's a street, Avenue, lane, place, etc. It will ask you if you want Walker st, Walker Ave, Walker pl whether or not if the street actually exist.
Summary: I purchased this unit to replace one of another brand which had died after years of excellent service. Unfortunately, the manufacturer of the unit I had been using was no longer making in dash GPS units so I did some shopping and decided on the new Pioneer AVICX950BH. After using if for the past few months, I am extremely disappointed in the Pioneer unit and would never recommend it to anyone looking for an integrated in-dash system.
Quite an exciting piece of technology and entertainment !
1 March 2014
Summary: This is a complex piece of technology with so many functions. Let me comment of each one of them: GPS : works very well despite all the complaints I read from Amazon reviews. I have no complaint. Comparing with my old Garmin, this one is better in many ways: no repeating phrase "recalculating". The voice guidance is "on top" of the stereo music, but it doesn't bother me at all. The unit come with maps, so there is not need to spend money for map updates !
Summary: after switching my 2008 rav4 stock stereo, I felt this came short on satisfaction. i miss the easy/big knobs on the stock radio. the touch screen is great but it is not like a smart phone touchscreen. the video sync with an android phone is sketchy and has limited apps.
Summary: The owner manual - digital version only, no book found in box. Product was not factory sealed. Pioneer should seal the box. GPS system can`t pick common houses number in Queens,NY Video did not work. I had a voice but no picture. Sound quality is good - I like it! HD radio is OK, clear strong sound. Super fast Amazon refund - that`s nice. I would not recommended this unit for this price.
