What customers say about "Tuner"
Pioneer AVH-4201NEX Double-DIN Multimedia DVD Car Stereo
  • This unit has all the bells and whistles, but what really sets it apart is the tuner. I picked up digital signals from over 50 miles and behind a set of hills. It only dropped off when I reached the base of the hills.
  • Great Pioneer unit with lots of features. Replaced my basic am/fm truck radio with this.
  • I am extremely pleased with this receiver. My OEM receiver, which was from 2007, was only AM/FM and CD. I was looking for a receiver to play AM/FM/CD and also to attach my phone by either bluetooth or USB. This has all of those, android auto, DVD and plays music from my phone/pandora/etc.
  • FM radio reception is not as good as my older kenwood. Phone must be plugged into adapter to function with unit. It would be nice if it was functional thru the buletooth.
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-4201NEX Double-DIN Multimedia DVD Car Stereo
  • Lots of nice features, like hands free phone and built-in equalizer. Nice background effects and adjustable color for buttons.
  • Backup Camera included with receiver - works great. Takes a bit to learn all of the functions, as there are many!
  • Grear sound and both Apple and Android comparable. Instalation was easy and fit perfect in my 2007 Silverado. Back up camera included!
  • Display is large, easy to read while driving, especially clock.
  • Started off looking for a back up camera. Then saw this that includes a back up camera, XM, digital radio and Apple Play. Looks terrific in the Grand Caravan. Fit is perfect and all of the factory switches on the steering wheel still work.
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.
