Great sound and great head unit, not giving 5 stars since thus far the backup camera will not work
The screen does very well at showing what you need to see.
Excellent connection and control when connected through usb to my iPhone. CarPlay is the best.
Can still play that CD you pick up at a truck stop on a long road trip or that copy of ‘Over the Top’ you have been dying to watch but your wife won’t let you play it in the house. Yes, this thing plays DVDs as well. Imagine sharing that special time with your best friend, watching the movie that starts you on the road to competitive arm wrestling where you find yourself spending a lot of nights in your car.
Let’s face it, it doesn’t do so hot when connecting to Spotify via Bluetooth. I love that you CAN control Spotify when attached via Bluetooth however this unit seems to have an issue with consistently making that communication connection.
Oh well, you are likely just going to plug your phone into it so you can get a charge. Besides, direct connection is way better than Bluetooth for audio. I said it and I stand by it.
This unit does not come with a remote.
I made the mistake of purchasing the 2440 and liked that it came with a remote.
BSM button – this is the dream of satan. The best station memory button sound great at first. “Oh, I can hit a button while in a new city and it will automatically scan and save the stations with the best reception?? Sign me up!” Until you realize this button is rather prominent on the unit and not put somewhere in a menu function so that your “friends” can’t just randomly poke it and mess up all the hard work you went through to organize 3 pages of station presets.
Not a fan of push buttons for volume control but that really isn’t used much in today’s double din stereos.
Overall you will most likely like this stereo, so why not buy it?
J b –
This is a great stereo, I’m using deck power with kicker 6×9 in front and Kicker 6 3/4 in back polk audio tweeters in dash and it rocks,I’m old school, I have over 500 cds. Blue tooth works great,if your using this for cds and built in Amp there’s no reason to get the 900.00 4500nex, it’s the same internal guts. You’ll get the same performance as far as sound and cd and Bluetooth, save money.
My last pioneer has worked for more than 10 years with no problems until I got the latest iPhone 12 mini and realized it wasn’t compatible. Figured I’d stick with the brand.
This is a good unit, I like that you can purchase the same chassis with different options. I don’t need wireless carplay so I got this unit. The touchscreen works well; it responds quickly, works in the cold, and looks good but I wish there were more customization options for the backgrounds since my old pioneer was better in that department. User interface is relatively intuitive for a car stereo. The backup camera isn’t the best image quality, but does come up quickly.
Gripes: there isn’t a button to skip tracks on the faceplate, you have to use the touchscreen. This is annoying especially when making adjustments to settings and wanting to switch songs. It also means you have to glance at the screen to change songs since it’s not always in the same place and there isn’t any tactile feedback from a physical button. The second gripe is the difficulty in accessing the subwoofer adjustment screen. You have to press settings, then press the speaker setting menu, then scroll down to speaker level settings, then adjust the subwoofer. I usually only adjust when switching between sources so I wish the unit would remember these settings for each input, or have an easier way to adjust subwoofer output levels. I also wish there was a way to completely turn the screen off like my old pioneer but this one only dims. This should be fine most of the time, except on super dark drives or in very bad weather.
Overall I’m very happy with pioneer double din units and this one seems to continue the tradition of reliable and feature packed head units for good prices.
I like the unit, easy to use. I’ve got it hooked up to my Android Google phone and carplay works excellent.
I installed it in a 4th generation 4Runner and used a separate harness adapter so I could retain steering wheel controls. I originally had it hooked up like the old stereo through the key on/off . This turned out problematic due to the fact the stereo has no obvious on-off button. So every time I got in the car the stereo would come on If I wanted it to or not. Then I would have to use the volume to shut it up at distracting times and that was difficult while driving . I ended up wiring the red wire through a dash mounted separate switch. Now I can easily shut it off and on manually. I’m still getting to know it, Good so far
