Great head unit

I have been a fan of Pioneer for a long time and they did not disappoint with this head unit. The ease of setting it up was great and it's loaded with features. The sound is amazing as well as all the options it has for sound quality.

Good price and working great

I liked all the features of this receiver. Install was easy with the vehicle specific connectors. Great screen quality and all the features I needed. If I had one complaint, for the price Apple CarPlay should be wireless. But otherwise everything works flawless and sounds great. I love the equalizer feature and navigating is fairly simple.

Awesome Unit

This is an awesome unit for a very reasonable price. It has tons of features and is pretty simple to set up. There are tons of videos available to assist with the setup if you need help. All of the Pioneer NEX systems have similar setups so if you cannot find a video specifically for 2500 , find one for any NEX system. I replaced the tired Bose system in my 96 Corvette, and the sound from the Pioneer is simply amazing. The feature that sold me on this particular unit was the integration with Apple Car Play. You will not be disappointed with this system!
