  • everything is smooth, and the musiq tunning features is awesome. i switch from a x2700bt and musiq has more power now, much cleaner.

What customers say about "Display"
Pioneer AVH-2330NEX 7" DVD Receiver
  • Very easy to navigate through screens, very intuitively set up. Sounds Great, way way better than stock.
  • This went in easily, has a large clear screen. The basic functions are easy to figure.
  • Great sound, packed with features, HD radio, CarPlay, DVD, adjustable screen tilt.
  • The screen automatically dims when the headlights are turned on. Just works great!
  • Main screen menu is just a little laggy coming up.
  • The response time switching between screens is a little slower than I would like, but it's not bad. During sunny conditions the glare on the screen is pretty challenging.

What customers say about "Audio"
Pioneer AVH-2330NEX 7" DVD Receiver
  • Makes my 16 year old factory speakers and equipment seem like new.
  • Stereo sounds great, I upgraded the stock speakers to Kickers, and what a difference. Installed myself in about 2 hrs, in a 2008 Tundra. Looks great.
  • Radio sounds great, did not know my factory Infinity speakers could sound this good.
  • This stereo, combined with my after market speakers and amp, creates an amazing sound. The CarPlay is essential.
  • Replaced the factory head unit in my 2014 Toyota Tundra. Big improvement in sound quality and functionality. Very pleased with the sound control, CarPlay, and other features.

What customers say about "Tuner"
Pioneer AVH-2330NEX 7" DVD Receiver
  • It has a large number of radio stations and I like having 18 FM presets.
  • Great Car Radio, looks and sounds great with the HD Radio. It's nice seeing the Album Cover Art when the radio station sends the data.
  • The HD radio is awesome, the ability to connect two mobile phones via Bluetooth is great, and I love the Apple CarPlay.
  • Only 1 USB port, only 6 presets per screen, have to move through several screens to see and select all presets especially for sat receiver.
Pioneer AVH-4200NEX 2-DIN Receiver
  • Being a Pioneer the tuner is also very good switching seamlessly from digital to analog for those fringe stations
  • It also doesn’t default to a preset station but instead goes to one that wasn’t set previously. But being able to present stations in other cities with the multiple fm options is great.
  • Great Car Radio, looks and sounds great with the HD Radio. It's nice seeing the Album Cover Art when the radio station sends the data.
  • SirisXM ready, HD FM as avaialbe in your area and of course the interface to your iPhone, bluetooth for music and phone, USB interface for the other features, messaging, Siri, maps, etc.
  • ATL has a large number of radio stations and I like having 18 FM presets.

What customers say about "Features"
Pioneer AVH-2330NEX 7" DVD Receiver
  • Awesome head unit that works flawlessly with my Samsung Note 8 and Galaxy 7. Slight glare in the sun, but other than that works well. No issues here.
  • Great head unit, all of the bells and whistles enhanced with Android Auto makes for a super high end experience.
  • Great product! Pioneer always delivers. iPhone Car Play is amazing. We tried several model iPhones. All worked perfectly.
  • Camera sucks. It works but it’s not a bubble/wide view and it looks zoomed in. Other than that I love the product.
  • Camera keeps on flickering, the radio is very low res and slow as well as non responsive. Do Not Buy!
Pioneer AVH-4200NEX 2-DIN Receiver
  • Awesome radio that allows me to see my maps on the screen without paying for navigation. Just by connecting my phone.
  • The radio has alot of functions and is compatible with both android and apple.
  • This radio is fantastic! On screen controls, even came with a little remote. It uses my iPhone settings and Siri for music and the GPS for mPs so it's all very compact.
  • It takes some getting used to, but is very intuitive and the Apple CarPlay is the best!! Looks great too and fits perfectly in the dash!!
  • It's nice to use with carplay on my iPhone. Probably the only downfall is how long it takes to boot up when you start the car.
