FOR DISPLAY/OFF-ROAD PURPOSES ONLY: For the new 2015 Pioneer AVIC-NEX models, these headunits will not require an interface, switch, etc. to bypass the video-in-motion lock feature. There is a "secret" hidden button in the software that allows you to bypass the lock. Here is how to do it:

  • Step 1: Ground the light green parking brake wire the vehicle wire harness' ground wire.
  • Step 2: Apply power to the unit and push main menu button (located in the center of the control panel)
  • Step 3: Push "AV icon" (located on the touch screen, bottom center-right area of the screen)
  • Step 4 :On the AV icon screen push "Off" button (located on the touchscreen, towards the bottom left area of the screen)
  • Step 5: Press and hold the very bottom left corner of the touch screen for 10 seconds until you hear a beep and a small "set on" icon will appear that confirms the bypass is complete. (if the demo screen pops up, just tap the screen once to make it go away, and continue with this step)
  • Step 6: Sit back and enjoy your new unlocked Pioneer NEX radio.

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
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.
No
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.
No
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.
17 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.
Yes
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.
4 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.
13-Band
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
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.

Yes

The apple play will sometimes have some lag time but, it's a great deck. You also have to turn on the apple play before you use it unlike some of the other models. Still worth the money for it.

I am VERY satisfied

June 1, 2015

I bought a different radio and it had a motorized screen that did not work with my car. I returned as per their instruction. The refunded my bank account in a very short time. Then I found a Pioneer AVIC-5100NEX on their site . I received both radio's in a very short time. I buy from them again.

A great Pioneer product as usual!

September 1, 2015

I have always stuck to Pioneer headunits as they are built well and offer great functionality for what you pay for. I wanted a all-in-one unit as far as Bluetooth audio, navigation, and Apple CarPlay for my 2006 Mazda 3. I installed it right before my big road trip heading to Seattle and back for a week and it performed VERY well. The Naviteq GPS software looks and works great with a good set of features I find useful, and with more to come as I have read Pioneer still has yet to release more updates (hopefully sooner than later!). Maps are clear and the graphics are smooth. Audio quality via Bluetooth or through the Lightning cord are crisp with the customizable 13-band equalizer.

Only problem I have with it is the unit gets confused and will become unresponsive when you have your phone paired for Bluetooth audio and decide to plug it in for Apple CarPlay occasionally - turning off Bluetooth on my iPhone 6 before plugging it in did the trick. I hope Pioneer stays on top of this unit as far as firmware because it truly is a great compliment to my car.

As per usual, Sonic delivered well, and I will continue purchasing from them!

This system was very easy to setup and get going and the install was sweet. Cant say enough about it it's user friendly for both apple and android users. The HD radio picks up better than my last radioso far it haven't been going in and out of HD. To summarize would I purchase this again for another vehicle absolutely.

An excellent system. I made a 2008 Corvette into a 2017. It automatically syncs up to my iPhone 6plus with Apple Carplay. It's worth the money to come out of the Stone Age. This system does everything! It's dope and you don't have to have a lot of money to get one. Call Sonic for the info on this system.

Good Value

February 22, 2016

Decent sound quality and features. Looks great and incorporates all the things I was looking for at a very good price. The controls are somewhat clunky, though I have become use to them over time and it is getting easier to use. It is not really intuitive, I had to go to the manual several times to work out how to access some of the features.

start-up and load time seem to be a bit long but the biggest issue is that every time I turn on the car, I have to acknowledge the "Don't use this when you're driving" screen before it will turn on and that's getting annoying.

Still, it was a very good value and I don't think you can get this much for this price any where else.

I've only had it a few months so I can't speak to durability. the three-star rating is just a default because the site won't let me post a review without it.

How does this install ,, there is no screws on the side of the unit and the Harness requires splicing ugh ???
thanks,Ron
Ron L on Sep 1, 2015
Best Answer: You'll be using the screws provided with the unit to use with the appropriate dash kit compatible with your car. And yes, splicing is required but can be simple with a compatible wire harness kit!

I just recently purchased the AVIC-5100NEX, and the song/artist alert has a visible notification only; there is no "beep" or "tone" that gets my attention to look at the screen. If I'm not staring at the screen, I have no idea that the song/artist alert is ever there. Any ideas?

Best Answer: I purchased Poineer avic 5100 nex with Metra Axxess ASWC-1steering wheel control and Metra double din installation dash kit, but my electrician still ask for CANBUS stereo replacement interface to power the AMP on my 2011 Toyota Venza XLE (with JBL system). Please advice. Thanks
