I'm on my second unit now. The first one worked very well until it just wouldn't eject the disk form the cd/dvd slot. The App radio is nice, while still a little limited. The sound is good, but I am using a JL Audio amp to push my speakers, so the built in amplifier is not doing a thing. I live in a rural area, so the HD radio is limited, but what stations are available in HD sound decidedly better than the analog stations. And I am quite pleased with the satellite radio integration. It is seamless. Overall, this unit works very well and has an impressive feature set. I just hope this second one lasts longer than the 7 months the first one did. I've owned a number of different brands of Head Unit from Eclipse to Panasonic, and everything else always lasted. Hopefully Pioneer will do the same.

You can't go wrong with Pioneer.
The Bluetooth could have a few more features like auto connect on incoming calls. USB sometimes doesn't recognize video files.
More Android support would be nice too.
Not everyone owns an I phone...
Has lots of audio settings to suit anyone's taste.
The GPS add on is way overpriced :(

September 17, 2013 Awesome New 2013 Head Unit

This unit has EXCELLENT stereo/sound separation. Listening to your regular music library will sound like a brand new experience. Guitars from the left and right sides are more emphasized and the lead singer is clearly in the middle along with the drums.
Only reason I took 2 points away is because the graphic equalizer in my opinion has a pretty large flaw/gap in it. I was hoping that Pioneer would fix this from last year. There are no eq adjustments above 10 khz. Really? Come on Pioneer! This is software now, you could easily make this a 30 band graphic eq if you wanted to! For sound adjustment you really need adjustments above 10khz because by just adjusting the 10 khz band for treble you increase the dreaded sibilance (when you get ear piercing high notes that are harsh and bad sounding). This unit needs a minimum of 2 more bands...16 khz and 20 khz and preferably an extra 3rd band at 12 khz. Like I said above though...it's all software now....very VERY easy to really make the graphic eq be a 30 band if they wanted to. They have one on their higher end single din PRS80 model. Let's see something be added to the firmware of the double din units.
The unit comes packed with a lot of features. Could it have more? Yes. But for the price point it is at, it comes well optioned. Bluetooth, HD Radio (that works very well I will add) and Sirius ready. I would love to see a little more from the time correction they have added to this model. The built in crossover/features is nice for the subwoofer but this should be across the board. The front and rear channels should have their own dedicated crossover/adjustments as well.
Pioneer really has stepped up the game with this unit as well as the others in the 2013 lineup. With some minors tweaks (as noted above), this could be a home run of a head unit.
Very well built...feels solid.
Very easy to use. I didn't even have to review the manual.
