Summary: Pioneer refuses to update the firmware on this unit which has essentially made the Bluetooth phone and audio functions completely useless. Even though the unit is advertised as one that can be updated by usb, they have never issued such an update.
Summary: Pioneer has always been a good Brand and they continue to be so. The radio is as described, as i have already installed it, is working great. It has a lot of features so it might take awhile to get used to the controls but nothing nobody can handle.
Summary: All the features are great! Love the direct iPod control and hands-free bluetooth. I had a little trouble installing the unit because of the size compared to my current unit but after I figured that out its great.
Summary: I picked this deck because I did not want something super flashy. So far, it's the best deck I've ever owned. I am running two amplifiers off of it and it does just fine. Definitely recommended by me.
Summary: I bought this piece of art 2 years ago for my 2005 Toyota Corolla. Installation: Buy 2 things to make your life easier. -The In-dash Adapter for your specific vehicle -The Factory Wiring Adapter. Local car shops can get you the part numbers, Amazon carried all of what I needed.
Summary: Buyer beware, this unit does not work with iPhones or iPods running iOS 4 or 5. Got it all the way installed only to find out that Bluetooth audio did not work reliably if at all. Then went to USB audio only to find out that was equally as flakey.
Fantastic headunit but it's just missing something.

Summary: The Pioneer FH-80000BT really is a fantastic headunit for those who just want something better in their car. It's stock-like appearance, quality construction and capabilities make it more than worth it's price point.
Summary: Pros: Good sound, bluetooth, price. Cons: non intuitive interface. Sounds great, good overall unit. Once cell phone is paired, radio will automatically detect your phone. Can make & recieve calls even if powered off (ignition "on" of course).
Was Great until Pioneer Stopped Caring About The Customers

Summary: I bought this unit not long after it was released for quite a bit cheaper than you can find it most places now. Truth is, if I had to decide now, I would look somewhere else. This unit was awesome for a long time- the ipod controls rocked and it was much easier than connecting it via a 3.5mm jack...
Summary: So this thing looks awesome in my car and it is fairly easy to navigate, however before I purchased this I asked if I could hook my zune through usb, however once installed I found this to not be the case.
