In-Dash Receiver Specifications
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
- RMS Power
- Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.
Audio / Video Inputs
RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.
This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.
3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.
This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.
Monitor Screen Features
Some in-dash head units are built-in with the navigation features, while others require an add on navigation box. Other navigation options include portable navigation units that you can take with you or attach to the dash of your vehicle.
If "Yes", then the aftermarket stereo is compatible with steering wheel remote controls. If an additional accessory is required for the steering wheel controls to work properly, a compatible piece will be listed.
Some Car stereos are compatible with iPods and/or iPhones. If the headunit can connect to an iPod or iPhone via USB or iPod connection cable, these listed iPods are compatible. This list does not apply if the iPod is being connected through the 3.5mm mini-jack plug. Newer iPods are usually compatible if the appropriate adapters are purchased and used.
Any iPods/iPhones released after the release date of this product have not been checked by the manufacturer and/or Sonic Electronix for compatibility. We therefore cannot guarantee their compatibilities or incompatibilities, including, but not limited to: playback, video, charging, and response time.

Owned previous Pioneer models and i loved them! But with this model the Nav Wheel needs to be redone all over! Very hard to navigate through menus, overall display and value is great!
the outer plate that snaps on to the dash install kit didn't fit though, i dont know if it was because of the head unit or the dash kit, but i was pretty upset about that.
Installed on a 98 Mitsubishi 3000GT

I bought a 39' toy hauler that had a stereo without an external input, and bought this head unit. This head unit powers the entire toy hauler, 5 speaker inside and 2 out side. I haven't even hooked up an amp to it. I really don't think I have to add an amp. It rocks the whole camp and half of the desert when we camp in the dunes.
Great unit to have.

I bought this head unit for my mothers 05 Pontiac Grand Prix because she wanted to play her IPOD. Ive only owned Pioneer head units and have never had any issues so I bought this one. Installing was pretty simple and the set up of the features is laid out well. For not having an amp to the 4 speakers, it sounds very good. Clear mids and highs. Over all it works great. My only issue is that the volume control (master control switch) is on the small side and can be difficult to adjust at times. For me its not too bad but my mother has problems at times due to her having longer fingernails. She is ALWAYS hitting the ipod shuffle button by mistake which is located next to the volume control. All in all I would recommend this unit.

This unit is a very excellent head unit. It improved sound quality over my stock system, and has excellent features and inputs. The equalizer and bass settings allow very customizable sound settings, perfect for each person's choosing. It can also be upgraded with a bluetooth module, however at a prohibitive cost. Also, steering wheel controls work perfectly, provided you buy the required harness if your vehicle requires it.
However, one fault I found to be somewhat annoying, but manageable, was the main control knob. It feels very flimsy when used, and when trying to push directly into the unit for the "enter" setting, you may inadvertently click it any of the four directions, which can get quite annoying if you are trying to retune on the move. Also, scrolling through long menus (folders on my USB flash drive) takes some time, as there is no correlation between how fast you can spin the knob and how many folders it goes down or up.
Overall, it is a very excellent unit, high quality, good looks, and full of rich features.

I am an exclusive pioneer stereo person. this stereo was for a budget build and i was even a little surprised by how well overall the stereo holds up to the more pricier units. I'm not an ipod guy so i thru the cable away but having front and rear usb simplifies things. i have a 200gb external hard drive in my glove box connected to rear usb. and i use front usb for new music.

This Head-unit woke up my 15" Mofo. I've tried Alpine and Lanzar, The alpine could play some crazy high notes so clean, but no bass or mid. The Lanzar 7" touchscreen had a sub-out but the pre-amp was miserable. Now with this v4 pre-amp, it makes my system brutal. 1000 watts RMS at 2ohms with the Mofo really made me stand out. Shakes my camaro up good. Custom ported box at 3.5cft does well. I am going to buy another to replace the Alpine in my other car. If you love to be deafened by high pitched sounds, get alpine. If you want bass and the best of both worlds. Go with Pioneer. (PS i used to have a lower model years back but it sounded muddy and it was why i went to Alpine. Both good companies just you have to pick your preferences) Have had no troubles with the all in one dial. Maybe people just are clumsy. :)

When i was looking for a head unit for my system, i wanted something that didn't scream "steal me", but still have everything i need/wanted in a head unit. The Pioneer DEH-P510UB did exactly that, for me at least. Now that's not to say that this head unit is ugly or unattractive. In person it is very attractive in fact, and has a nice high gloss finish. Externally its looks plain, but internally it is loaded with great features. The 7-Band eq preforms exceptionally well, the crossovers provide great separation, the Advanced Sound Retriever (ASR) really does improve mp3 sound quality, having 2 usb ports is extremely useful, the remote works from any angle and the head unit responds very quick when navigating through songs, playlists and menus.
Only problem i have with this head unit is the "knob". if you lose the remote, using the knob can be kind of a b***h to navigate the head unit while driving. Other than that this head unit preforms wonderfully. Looks good, sounds good, easy to install, plenty of great features and has 3 Sets of 4V preamp for less than $200, you cant beat that with a stick! Best bang for the buck!!!

Personally this is one of the best looking head units. i have a prs-d1200m amplifier hooked up to this unit and seriously, the gain on the amp is way lower than normal because of the 4volt pre amp outputs and i can still barely hear the subs. its a big upgrade from my old pioneer stereo and it had 2 volt outputs and the difference is unbelievable. the sound retrieval feature is incredible, you would think you have changed your music library with the difference it makes to your music mp3's. its also got loads of cool and handy features for example an alarm which rings inside the unit if the face plate isnt removed after removing the keys which prevents theft, etc. this is one of the best units in its price range, if your not sure just take my advice and try it out. you will not be disappointed.
As for installation it was a jif! fast and easy, no after market wiring needed and i actually had fun doing it.

This stereo was a breeze to install and the I-Pod interface rocks. easy to navigate through 0ll 2000 songs on my I-pod touch and great sound quality as well for under $200. I can't wait to get my subs and see how the whole system works.

This was recently stolen out of my car. I owned it for over a year and it is hands down the best deck I ever had. Only problem I had was it wouldn't recognized my iphone when i plug it in at times. I would have to unplug it and plug it back in till it works. Besides that the deck looks sleek, colors are great and the 4v output into the 3 sets of RCA produced clean, crisp sounds with the help of my 4 channel amp. I would say they are 17 watts rms not 22.

I love the clean display. It's easy to navigate though your iPod or usb drive. It realy makes my sub kick. They could put on more short cut buttens but it seams realy nice. Only had it for 2 days. Sonic's customer service was also good beacuse I wanted a alpine and they weren't in stock so they gave me this one for the same price. What a deal.

I owned a Pioneer Premier before this and it was great but out dated. So when I saw this one I had to buy it. I know its not a Premier but it still has so many features. I have a Sony mp3 player plugged in the front USB port and it lets me see and control it from the HU. All in all it is an awesome HU. Pioneer is great and the sound retriever works well to. I would recommend this product to anyone. Really easy to use only took about 5 min of practice.
