Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX Navigation Receiver with Carplay
  • Plenty powerful for stock and sensitive aftermarket speakers. Time dimmer function is nice. Navigation is OK
  • Responsive screen. Has Carplay. 4 channel dsp does a good job with time alignment on stock systems.
  • Really made a difference in the sound quality using the stock Infinity speaker system ( Bought the pioneer sub) versus the stock deck. I am super happy with my choice and the price!
  • Unit has very high quality picture and decent sound. Scrolling and pressing is very smooth- almost iPhone like.
Pioneer AVIC-8201NEX Flagship In-Dash Navigation AV Receiver
  • Product comes with everything you need for a proper installation instructions are easy to understand and it works very well sounds great. You will find a big improvement over any OEM unit that is installed on even mid to upper price range cars.
  • Nice unit very easy install. Love Apple car Play. Sounds great. I recommend this unit. Pioneer has done a nice job with this one.
  • This Pioneer System works as documented and sounds great. I installed this system in my 2007 MERCEDES SLK 280. This system was installed by Geek Squad. All options work great with my Droid Turbo Smartphone.
  • It was the perfect fit. The extra add on such as the harness and device to keep your steering wheel control worked and was definitely worth the extra spurge because the part separately cost more than buying the bundle.
  • Installed it in my 2013 Fiat... it is wonderful! Handles bluetooth well, plays movies, Apple Car Play and even better it has an HDMI I can hook up to my iPhone and play Netflix, videos etc!

What customers say about "Display"
Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX Navigation Receiver with Carplay
  • The screen is decent, but I don't think it's really that much more responsive or clearer than a resistive panel.
  • I love this stereo. Took a minute for my install but thats a Jeep Wrangler for you. The features are outstanding, the screen has a sharp clear picture and the touch is awesome.
  • The screen auto-dimming feature works in the background to keep the brightness "just right'. The dimming-effect is so gradual that you really don't notice it happening.
  • Screen isn't very crisp--has noticeable bloom/halo around bright spots.
  • The screen is shiny and shows every fingerprint. The screen also has a wicked glare if it catches the sun just right. Fortunately there is a tilt-feature so you can usually adjust the screen to keep the sun offset from your viewing angle.
Pioneer AVIC-8201NEX Flagship In-Dash Navigation AV Receiver
  • Easy to use navigation system. Nice graphics. Quick response touch screen.
  • Works perfectly with Apple Car Play, HD radio, nice NAV system, capacitive-sensitive touch screen (like an iPhone) & more than enough features to satisfy the average person.
  • Clear screen, fast touch response. You can tilt the screen so you can see better when the sun is bright.
  • Great sound, great screen, pairs with IPhone and Pandora seamlessly, back up camera clear.
  • Display Clear and Colorful, Plays FLAC files, Starts music and backup camera while loading software

What customers say about "Audio"
Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX Navigation Receiver with Carplay
  • The sound is definitely clearer, but it did take some adjustments with the built in EQ to get it how I liked it... but that was after 7 years of getting used to the JBL out-of-the-box sound. I'd buy it again for sure. The AndroidAuto interface is awesome.
  • Professionally installled and I really like the sound and all the features.
  • I bought this for the CarPlay, capacitive touch and sound quality. It does not disappoint on any of these. I really like the sound of this deck
  • The 13 band graphic EQ can help a lot of people using stock speakers or slight upgrades.
  • I'm not impressed at all with the sound quality either. Sounds like a loud stock stereo.
Pioneer AVIC-8201NEX Flagship In-Dash Navigation AV Receiver
  • Really enjoy the sound from my new pioneer stereo. Has plenty it power and sound clear with my factory speakers. The phone sounds great thru the car speakers as well.
  • The dual zone feature was the deciding factor. Being able to have the kids watching a movie in the back but still able to have the radio playing
  • For the price point it's a really great sterio. Good sound and a ton of options for different sounds.
  • I love this receiver. Is easy to get from area to another what's in the system and they have really streamlined it. Awesome EQ and I love the overall fit and look of the stereo itself. Navigation is easy to use
  • Perfect fit. Sounds so much better than stock while still using stock speakers and wiring.

What customers say about "Features"
Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX Navigation Receiver with Carplay
  • I love my pioneer! This works great and comes with all the cords for USB and aux and GPS antenna and mic and power cord. It is super fast when on the navigation and to call someone. I absolutely love it.
  • The navigation feature is much better than the factory navigation. We live near a city that has many divided highways with multiple exits and then right after that there are more exits.
  • APPLE CARPLAY: This feature is one of my favorite things about the AVIC-8200 NEX. It connects seamlessly and only has a few issues if the internet is spotty. I love that I can listen to Pandora, iTunes and Audible, but I wish I could also listen to other apps like Amazon Music.
  • Documentation is garbage, which is unfortunately par for the course. I haven't figured out yet where having a capacitive touch screen will be of benefit to carplay users. Navigation is only OK for being a flagship deck.
  • I wish it was a bit faster, not sure if this a Pioneer or an Apple problem. I using the latest iPhone SE (currently the fastest iPhone as of august 2016).
Pioneer AVIC-8201NEX Flagship In-Dash Navigation AV Receiver
  • This unit is great. Filled with lots of features for a medium priced stereo.This one is in a 2013 FJ Cruiser and with the Maestro idatalink it show all kinds of vehicle info.
  • the good in my opinion all the function's work flawlessly found nothing wrong at all love how easy it is to navigate thru shows were you are at all times also has a over the speed limit sign very happy with this unit
  • We have an IPOD classic (160GB) which houses songs and movies and this head unit is able to play everything on screen and in the rear head rests. Also has input to rearview camera as well as something no one can do without SIRIUSXM.
  • Navigation is very good on this unit as well as Apple Car Play.....
  • The camera that comes with it is made for a car. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and I am happier every day.
