Listen to Music based on your Mood

Pioneer has taken the in-dash multimedia receiver to the next level with the brand new 2010 AVIC-X920BT. Introducing the MusicSphere, unique proprietary Pioneer technology that analyzes the entire music library of a iPod and generates specific playlists which can be accessed based on the users mood. When the iPod is connected to the X920BT, the user has the option to choose the playlist based on the attributes of the music. Attributes such as the feeling of the music (bright, gloomy, relaxing, etc), the music's rhythm, the beat of the music, how fast or slow the music is, the year the song was made, the genre, and many other options. The MusicSphere technology is compatible with the iPod, iPod Touch, and iPhone.

In-Dash Receiver Specifications

Receiver Size

Single DIN: 1 DIN dimensions will work with all single DIN installation kits we have to offer. Single DIN radios are the most common size for after-market stereos.

Single DIN slot with flip-out screen: The DIN stereo includes a retractable, flip-out screen. Before purchasing, make measurements to be sure there is no interference with dash accessories such as A/C vents or shift levers.

Single DIN slot with a larger face: Standard single DIN size, but the display is larger then the standard single DIN size. Due to the nature of the larger face, problems may arise when installing in particular vehicles. These stereos are great for single DIN slots where you want a larger screen.

1.5 DIN: This size is very uncommon in vehicles, however this size opening is most commonly found in Chrysler and Chevrolet vehicles.

Double DIN: Approximately 4-inches in height, this size is becoming more common every year. Prior to 2000, this size was typically only found in Japanese vehicles such as those made by Honda or Toyota. Now, it is becoming more popular for many vehicles to be fit with a Double DIN opening.

Double DIN
Faceplate Security

Detachable / Removable faceplate security: The most common anti-theft feature. It allows you to take the faceplate with you, thus disallowing operation, which deters theft.

Security Codes: Mainly a feature in high end video units which do not have a detachable face / screen. Once the unit is uninstalled (or stolen), a security code (or PIN) is required upon reinstallation. Though you no longer have your unit after the theft, the thief also does not have your security code, which makes the unit useless. The hope is the thief knows which units have security codes and he/she chooses not to steal your unit because of the security code.

Ghost technology: This is not commonly used, but can be found primarily in a select number of 2004-2005 head units. It creates an illusion that no unit is installed by appearing completely black when turned off. Potential thieves may steer clear because it appears as though no head unit is installed.

Anti-theft covers: Similar to ghost and hiding faces because they only create an illusion that the face/unit is not in place.

ESN: Stands for Electronic Serial Number. Allows the disabling of the radio and allows tracking if it is stolen.

Motorized Faceplate
Some in-dash car stereos feature a motorized faceplate that moves to expose a CD or DVD slot. This is a convenient feature that allows the front display to be larger and easier to read. The positioning of the monitor gives you control over the angle you would like to view information on the stereo.
Remote Control
Allows control of specific features and functions from a remote control. Typically they are used to prevent button wear on your radio, or to allow easier navigation of menus.
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

50 watts x 4 channels
RMS Power Output
The amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS rating, the louder and cleaner your music sounds. The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.
22 watts x 4 channels
Preamp RCA Outputs
RCA outputs, commonly known as preamp outputs, allow you to connect one or sometimes multiple external amplifiers. An in-dash receiver will commonly have one, two or three sets of RCA outputs that can be used to connect external amplifiers and other components. One pair of RCA outputs will typically provide a full range signal that can be used for most subwoofer or speaker amplifiers. Two pairs of RCA outputs can typically be configured as four full range signals, or also as two full range and two subwoofer signals. Three sets of RCA outputs will almost always produce four speaker signals and two subwoofer signals for use with multiple amplifiers.
3 Pairs (Front, Rear, and Subwoofer)
Dedicated Subwoofer Preamp RCA Output
A dedicated output that has a built-in low-pass crossover for specific connection to a subwoofer amplifier that powers a low frequency driver, typically a subwoofer.
Preamp Voltage
The preamp output rating is measured in volts (V). The higher the rating, the stronger the signal. This results in less unwanted noise being picked up.
2.2 volts
Built-In Equalizer
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the stereo receiver is equipped with. The more EQ options, the more you will be able to adjust your music to your liking.
7-Band graphic equalizer with 6 preset tone curves
Display Type
The type of display on your receiver refers to the monitor that is used to display the source information such as song names, radio stations, or track times.

Dot-Matrix Text Display: A simple display which uses dots in specific illuminated color(s) to light up and form letters or numbers that are displayed on the receiver.

Graphic or Motion Display: Typically found in mid to high-end receivers and give your text information and receiver more life by adding motion, backgrounds, or multiple colors to your display. There are types of graphic displays such as 3D Graphic, Motion, and OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) displays. They can range from one color to full color displays and typically allow you to select from one of many built-in animations, background images, screensavers or other graphics to enhance your experience and add an extra bit of personality to your system. Some units also come with software that allow you to load your own customizable pictures or animations.

LCD Monitor Display: Can be as small as 2" or as large as 10". Some LCD displays are motorized for angle adjustment. LCD monitors display full motion video playback as well as your standard text such as track status, radio station information and more depending on the receiver's features.

TFT-LCD Monitor
Display Color
The display color refers to the color of the text and or graphics on the receiver.

Multi-Color: When more than one color is on the display, for example one part of the text is white, while the other part is blue.

Variable-Color: The display colors can be changed by the user. If the default color of text/display is blue for example, the user can change the settings to where the color turns to red. Variable color displays are typically described in detail in the item's description.

TFT-LCD Display: In-dash receivers with a video screen that display multiple colors and often times video such as DVD, navigation or other video sources.

Full Color
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
32,767 Selectable Colors
CD Signal-to-Noise
CD Signal-to-Noise Ratio is a key specification that is often overlooked by newbies. The CD S/N Ratio measures how well the CD player silences background noise. Higher ratings in decibels (dB) indicates less noise, and generally a cleaner signal.
96 dB
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.


Playback Features

AM/FM Tuner
Most in-dash CD players have AM/FM playback allowing you listen to your favorite local radio stations.
FM Presets
The number of FM radio stations that can be stored as presets.

If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
Monitor Screen Size
This is the size of the monitor on the unit. It is measured diagonally and in inches. The bigger the number the larger the screen.
Monitor Angle Adjustment

This means that the unit is able to tilt backwards so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, this type of pivot means that the bottom of the screen stays stationary while the top of the screen retracts. On Double DIN units this means that the bottom of the screen slides forward while the top of the screen moves down, resulting in a backwards angle tilt.

This means that the unit is able to tilt forward so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, a forward pivot keeps the bottom of the screen stationary while the top of the screen moves forward. On select Double DIN units, a forward tilt is sometimes referred to as a reverse tilt. The bottom of the screen remains in the same position while the top of the screen moves forward.

Left/Right Angle (Horizontal):
Some monitors allow the display to be rotated to the left or right in order to have the best viewing angle possible.

Slide In/Out:
A feature mainly found in select Kenwood units. It allows the entire screen to slide in and out. This is different from a forward/backward tilt in that the entire screen moves forward or backwards as opposed to just the top or bottom.

Display Adjustment
This refers to the many ways that a units display can be adjusted.

Love the Unit

September 14, 2010

Just finished installing this unit on my 2001 BMW X5 and I must say it lives up to its reviews and the sound is excellent. I was a little bummed out to find out the product went on sale a few days after I bought it and had yet to receive delivery but the sonic team came through for me with some Sonic Bux.

Replaced factory stereo on my 2007 toyota tundra, with four polk speakers and two sets of massive tweeters, Real good clean sound you dont need an amplifier. I installed rear view camera works good for my big truck. The only think I don't like is 6.1". 7.1 inches would be nice.

Really Great Value

August 6, 2011

I have been using this product for approx 6 months and I still love it. It has a lot of features I have not tried but it does everything I need it to do. I imported all the contacts from my phone to my car with no issues. It works great as my hands-free interface to my phone. I also imported my addresses and personal POIs from my previous GPS unit to this device, also with no issues. The GPS has not let me down yet. I used the AVIC Feeds to import and correctly format all the information prior to import. I have a 16G microSD card installed with Audiobooks and a lot of music; no issues. Also, the interface for the XM radio is also outstanding. I could go on and on but let me finish with, I would recommend this to anyone and SonicElectronix had the best price that I could find.

Needs some fine tuning

August 4, 2011

The main problem that I have with this radio is the touch screen. The touch screen does not work very well and it is hard to operate while you are driving a car. Also, the blue tooth does not work that well either, people have trouble making out what I am saying during phone calls. On a positive note, I love all the features that the radio has: GPS, Pandora, Iphone capability. I just think some things on the radio need to fine tuned.

Pioneer's Best

July 11, 2011

The AVIC-X920BT is one of the best navigaion stereo units out there. I highly recommend it because it for several reasons. The navigation system was so helpful on a road trip I just took to Alabama and back to California. It helped me navigate without even thinking. The other part is the music system. I was able to use my iPod and play CD's. The iPod system was to die for. Of course the bluetooth was very handy. I truly understand now why it's called the starship. You will not be disappointed.

Love it!

June 9, 2011

I have been reading some of the others reviews, remember to READ THE MANUAL!!!! I have had this for a year and I love it!!!! Here are some of the bad things that I have noticed. - Pandora Link is quirky (it may be associated with my iphone) - Missing some map data but is 95% accurate - While the brightness DOES adjust when you turn the headlights on/off I wish i could make it brighter while watching movies -Scrolling though music and Pandora channels is cumbersome -VR is pretty much useless

Good, but ....

March 23, 2011

I like it, the only problem is that my wife has a JVC KW-NT1 and I like the interface much better, especially when it come to music. I know there are more features on the Pioneer, but the music navigation is the thing I hate the most.

Very happy

March 14, 2011

My husband and I bought two of these for our 2004 Audi's. We are both very happy with the units. The navigation awesome, although some newer roads don't show up, but that would be the case with any navigation system. It plays our iPods flawlessly, but we don't use them much anymore because of the miniSD card slot, which is genius. You can load a ton of music on it and always have it in the car. We were originally unsatisfied with the Bluetooth, but we recently switched to iPhones and the sound quality is much better. The Pandora app is great too, because it allows you to listen to satellite music through your Pioneer unit. Overall we're very satisfied, and Sonic had the best price and great customer service.

Overall this is a nice multi function unit. Reason I bought this one is because I really like the fast processor. All the features are really easy for me to use. The only downside to this unit is sometimes the GPS positioning is a little off at times. I suppose it can be improved with a little tinkering.

Great Product

February 27, 2011

I put this in my 06 350Z. It went in with out a problem and running the wire for the GPS and blue tooth mic was no problem. The unit has tons of features, more then you would ever use. I would recommend you print out the manual. Just do it at a Staples or Kinko's, I believe it is 800+ pages. Scrolling threw all those pages on a laptop is not fun. The GPS works well but it will take some getting used to. It is a lot different from my Garmin that speaks to me. Some times it can get confusing even with the picture on the screen. Great features for adjusting the sound and just about anything. The iPod or iPhone work great in it. I use my iPod only because all the wires are hidden and I want my phone accessible. The only thing I don't like about the unit is when pushing the skip button or touching the screen to skip. There is a delay and you some times have to push it twice. I have another Pioneer head unit in my truck and it has the same iPod interface but it is instant when you hit the skip button. The time it takes for the unit to power up and play music doesn't bother me. If I had to say right now and guess it would take 15 seconds to turn on and go. I haven't used my 350Z since November because of the winter season, so my timing might be off. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to spend money for a great touch screen navigation system.

Not Bad but not outstanding Either

February 11, 2011

Installed unit found gps to work not bad but sometimes puts me off the road on the map that it. I have a louder than average, or nosier interior, and bought it for the handsfree option and find it only works well if i am stopped. if you have a quieter cab it might work better. Sound quality is very good and as far as the music and iPod hook up is five star very good once you get the proper cord for it.

I just installed this double din in my tacoma it looks and sounds GREAT! the music sounds like its never sounded before! installing it couldnt have been easier! The bluetooth mic works but its hard for the other person to hear you clearly! The pandora link to the iPhone is a great advantage! The price I think could be cheaper but you pay for what you get and the money I spent on this screen was well spent! This screen overall is AWESOME

I bought this unit to replace a factory unit in my new vehicle and the installation was simple and easy to under stand by actually reading the instructions. the unit is self looks fantastic and work like it should. I'm very pleased with the unit that I ended up buying another one for my older vehicle had a older d3 unit. and wow what a difference.

Regret purchasing

December 13, 2010

I would not recommend this unit to anybody. The unit is really complex to operate while driving. It has a mutating interface where buttons change place all the time. The voice control is a joke - it fails to understand what it needs to do. I really thought that I was getting a finished product. Pioneer should be ashamed of throwing out a product on the market without really finishing it. Encoding video to have it played back is some form of art because the recommended formats on the manual do not work on the unit. All I can say is SHAME ON YOU PIONEER! The only saving grace is that it sounds really good
