Default pioneer app radio, anybody tried one?

Search turned up nothing surprisingly because this seems like a good idea.

http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PU...o+2+(SPH-DA100)

GPS, touch screen, and if I'm reading correctly seems like it'll work with an iPod. Doesn't have a lot of info in there but I'm wondering how it'd work if it were hardwired to the port in the glove box. Looking at the pic on the site it looks like hard wired is an option.

Looking for experience on them since I'll never use it as a DVD and don't even own a CD anymore

I may have read that thing wrong, not sure if the GPS works without the phone or not

Ya I ran one in my truck for a few months. If you don't have an IPhone it's worthless. The GPS is off of your phone. The coolest thing about the H/U is the Rdio app. The pandora app is laggy. Of you try and text while it's connected to te head unit it shuts the music off. The Nav interface is janky and Hard to use too


Get a nice keyword or pioneer or something, skip the app radio

Thanks, having looked at them it seems like a great idea. Just figured there had to be a reason I hadn't heard much about them.

YA they would be great for say an older person that was techno savy and had their iphone, otherwise they are just sub par.


Plus they only have 1 set of RCA preouts if your big inteo stereo your kinda left high and dry for good clean signal

The big draw of the App Radio is its advanced app mode and Iphone integration. Browsing things like your contacts and calendar and streaming video from certain apps to the radio's screen. There is a higher priced model, the AVH-P8400BH that offers this advanced mode along with 3 sets of high volt pre-outs, DVD playback and the other features of better double din screen models with the exception of navigation.

The only thing my AppRadio did that my Kenwood doesnt do is have an app for Rdio. If I turn Rdio on when my Kenwood is set to be playing through my iPod it plays Rdio just fine.
