Great value

Replaced factory unit in ram 2012,1500. Links to my note5 with no problem. Great eq and touch screen. I wish the volume stayed on the screen full time for touch function.

A great choice!

I purchased this unit to upgrade my daughters Mazda MX5 Miatas' stock BOSE stereo. I had purchased a different unit initially, which didn't work out, Sonic Electronix gave me a full refund on that one! The Pioneer is exactly what I wanted. From bluetooth phone connection to USB and Aux. Note: both the USB and AUX. come out the back of the head and require a cable to connect too. Touch screen and menus are intuitive, background colors can be customized as well as themes. Also purchased Axxes steereing wheel control module and all controls work flawlessly. The unit sounds amazing. I highly recommend this unit and Sonic Electronix!

Good Deal

Perfect stereo at a fair price. Bluetooth for music and phone along with a backup camera. Few issues wiring it up, but Andrew in customer service helped me get everything working. Thanks Sonic and Andrew!!

Amazing product, but you need to know.....

I would definitely recommend this product, infact I already have. The avh series is great. However the product compatibility with phones sways more with IPhones. You cannot use the applications through Bluetooth with Android devices and the android apps for it are annoying, unreliable, and require USB connection. I have read that the newer galaxies do great with these features/ are more user friendly. However the apps don't really do much anyway. The dvd function is absolutely useless without the purchase of monitors which would of been nice to know. The equalizer is the best I've seen. The HD Radio is pristine. The Bluetooth connection is great but spotty if anything is covering your phone. The matrix app is amazing but it is required to use an ipod/iPhone or USB-drive it cannot be used with an android device. Further more if you have music that was downloaded from sites that do not present full information such as genre, composer, and year the app is useless in that it relies on that information to create a playlist. The hands free phone call is great I've used it about twenty times and afterwards asked about the sound quality. From what I can tell the microphone that it comes with is great and provides clear call quality. One of the features that you can actually use with Android is the Bluetooth hands free call plus you can look at your contacts. You can also use voice commands, but if you have a lock on your phone you cannot use the voice commands until it is unlocked (kind of useless) I am not sure with IPhones though. All around your experience will very with what phone device you use with it. If you have a newer iPhone you are definitely going to have a good time, but if you use an android youre going to have a bad time. (Southpark reference) Sonic Electronics was very compliant and willing to solve a small mix up. They responded incredibly fast and I will trust them with my next audio purchase.

Solid Product with a few small cons!

Love my radio. I had to have the iPod direct control, Pandora, Bluetooth and USB and aux. the Siri hands free is amazing. Everything is easy to read and clear. The only CON I can think of off the top of my head would be when I pause it under the iPod mode, I'll press play and it will play buy it still says pause so it's not counting the seconds on the songs. Like I said small CON but when you buy something new you expect everything to work the way it should. I would still give it a 5/5 stars. 9/10 rating. Or what have you.

Love this!!!

I love this radio!!! It is very easy to use and I love this the Bluetooth. It automatically hooks up to my phone as soon as I get in the car which is perfect because I always forget to make sure that it is connected to the radio. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
