Summary: this is the best radio I've ever had! you definitely need to buy a brand name stereo. my stereo before this was a walmart special radio and only lasted like 8 months. luckily i was able to send it in the get a refund so I could buy this piece of magic. of course (and they don't really advertise this) you need the iPhone 4 for this radio. you can buy the more expensive ones if you don't have the iPhone 4.
Summary: I purchased the very first AppRadio when it came out and had it installed by Best Buy. It was over $700 all said and done. The unit died and I had to send it back to Pioneer and they sent me a refurb. Now I just upgraded my iPhone to the 5s with iOS7 and find that it is not compatible. I will have to keep my old iPhone 4 just for the car even though it no longer has a data plan and will not be able to use any apps other than the iPod.
Summary: If you're reading this review, I'm going to assume you're thinking about buying this product. It is cheap nowadays (that's why I bought it), and nice looking. Do. Not. Buy. This. Radio. -AppRadio works 25% of the time *IF* you plug up your phone and start up the app before you turn on the car. -There are many warning screens when the radio turns on to lecture you on the hazards of using this radio while driving. They can be dismissed...sometimes.
Summary: I purchased the Stereo in February 2013 and installed it in July 2013 It only worked the day it was installed. Now all it does is GO IN TO AN ENDLESS BOOT UP CYCLE. I can't return the useless piece of junk for waiting so long to install it. I called the manufacturer (PIONEER) and described the problem to them, THEY WANT $80.00 JUST TO LOOK AT IT and see what the problem is. (as if they don't know) on top of that, I have to pay for shipping . I know what the problem is!
Summary: first of all- price. very reasonable for quality on sound & screen response. installation- very very easy to follow.. took me 1.5hr to do it. easy of use- after day 3 navigation speed & call making its like operate the iphone4, simple & fast. sound quality- impressed how big it to change from factory stock stereos to commercial ones.. great pioneer experience. no dvd or cd!!- actually a plus for me.. it save car space and mess with cd & dvd. no more storage!!
Summary: First off, I bought this from a different retailer and paid about one forty including shipping and a wire harness. At that price, this car stereo is barely worth it. Install - Even though it might seem complicated, with the correct radio wire harness for your vehicle, installing this was pretty straight forward and unless you'll need quite a bit of custom work done, putting it in yourself shouldn't be too difficult.
Summary: im trying to contact the seller of this item but he does't want to talk to me,, i also call pioneer factory but it's imposible for me to get the 1 year warranty since im not a authorized costumer,, and about the stereo it sucks, know i know why is so cheap.....don't buy this s*** i'll give you mine for free...
