They almost got it ...

  • Summary: There is a lot of disinformation on the Internet about this product. Specifically that it doesn't work with iPhone 5 and/or IOS 7. Not so. It requires extensive cabling and you MUST read the owner's manual but after that everything works as claimed. I find myself using it mostly with Bluetooth and use Siri extensively to read and answer texts with hands on the wheel. I also use Siri to make calls (to people in my Contacts List).
  • Pros: Overall I'm happy with this solution (thanks to Siri) and it improves my driving experience (and safety) while using the Bluetooth features. When I use the GPS (Waze app) it works very well with the caveats mentioned.
  • Cons: The point of connection needs a more completely engineered solution -- a Lightning cable extension, a dock, something.... If that problem were solved I'd be totally happy. I wish Bluetooth allowed transfer of album artwork. It would make a more interesting display. But that is neither a Pioneer nor an Apple problem -- it's the Bluetooth spec.

  • Summary: I am kind of disappointed in the "app mode". I find myself just utilizing the Bluetooth to stream audio, as opposed to fumbling through all of the necessary steps to hook up my iPhone. Also, wish I had done a little more research into the available apps. Feels very limited, verses opening up a whole new world of functionality. I do like the unit overall, and I don't want my disappointment in the "app mode" to overshadow a great head unit. I love the display.
  • Pros: Nice display. Good sound. Straight forward ease of use.
  • Cons: Disappointed in app mode

Not all it's cracked up to be

  • Summary: I had high hopes for this receiver. It is beautiful. I love the capacitive touch screen. I've installed several aftermarket stereos before -all with great sound. This one for some reason doesn't sound all that great. I hate the 5 band equalizer. It would be better off with separate bass and treble controls. It has an annoying warning screen that you have to agree to when you start your car. iPod sync lags. I was half tempted to put my factory stereo back in.
  • Pros: Aesthetically pleasing
  • Cons: Too expensive for what you have to deal with.

Great look but lacking features

  • Summary: Pioneer did a wonderful job with the look of this unit, it's beautiful! Installation and set up was a breeze. The only complaints that I have that are really bugging me is I wish that when you did things in landscape mode on your iPhone it did the same on the big screen but it doesn't. The big killer for me is that I no longer use iTunes due to the fact that I use Rhapsody because it's a much better deal!

  • Summary: Really excellent unit with great sound and capabilities. A little hard to follow the instructions but a call to customer support helped out. So far we've enjoyed the unit and it looks cool in our dash. Taking a trip so we'll see how the navigation does.
  • Pros: Attractive unit basic features easy to use.
  • Cons: Directions for the use of apps can be difficult to follow.

Great product

  • Excerpt: Installation is complicated. I'd recommend pro installation or risk damaging unit or wiring. Once installed the system is fantastic. I didn't even have to add a sub woofer due to the fact the built in equalizer was so strong. Great sound! I'd recommend this system in a heartbeat. I have 4 cars in my family and this head unit is by far the best and always getting better with apps that are added and old ones that are continuously updated and improved.
  • Pros: Easy to use, Powerful
  • Cons: Complex Installation

  • Excerpt: The Pioneer AppRadio 3 is fantastic. Very powerful equalizer gives excellent sound quality. The system does require additional wiring kit to hook up your iphone 5 so check that carefully. I'm extremely happy with the sound system and simplicity of use. Very good product so far.
