HD Radio Tuner for use with "HD Radio Ready" Pioneer Head Units
Brand New from Pioneer! The Pioneer GEX-P20HD is the newer version of the Pioneer GEX-P10HD and is used to receive FREE digital HD radio. Use this HD radio tuner with your compatible Pioneer car stereo and you are on your way to getting the clearest radio transmission. Features that this tuner enables include iTunes tagging, multicasting, and more. iTunes tagging allows the user to "tag" the song that is playing on the HD radio station and save it on the connected iPod. The next time that iPod is connected to iTunes, that song and it's details will appear in the iTunes store. With iTunes tagging, you will never forget your favorite song on the radio. Multicasting allows stations to broadcast multiple stations on one analog frequency. This means that one radio station can be transmitting several programs at the same time with a digital signal. With this HD tuner, you will be able to listen to those "hidden" stations. Get rid of your traditional radio and upgrade to HD radio!Product Features:

It's a good buy.
I was very interested in HD radio because of the hype. Since I live in an HD broadcast market and it's free. I figured I'd give it a shot and add another 100 to by order when I bought the 3300bt. I'm pleased with it's performance. There are some hiccups with HD broadcast and on rare occasion the broadcast cuts out for a second. Noting too disturbing and not often. The sound quality is better than regular Am/fm. It's good to have it if you actually listen to radio. The unit itself was easy to install with the head unit and although you have to find a place for the unit the length of the wires provided aford plenty of mounting options and locations.
HD radio is wack
HD radio is ok when you have good signal, if not, it might be the most annoying thing ever because as radio signal tunes in and out it, the radio switches from HD to analog or traditional, and the clarity is totally different, which makes it super annoying. If you are sitting in one spot with good signal, it's definitely good quality. I would probably suggest sattelite radio instead of HD.
Not awful. Not great
Reception leaves something to be desired. I drive around in a sprawling Texas metro area and reception drops out all the time. I thought it might have to do with my power antenna, but reworked the wiring on that and it's still pretty spotty. 2011 model year so I can presumably rule out the car as the problem. Swapping between HD and FM is very noticeable and annoying. I use the radio less since installing this than I did before on 100% FM. Works fine if you find a good reception spot and park the car. Just bad on the move.
Value gets 2 stars. It's expensive for what you get.
Look/Design gets 3 stars. Nothing special on looks, but I believe the design of the device is the problem.
Durability I gave 5 stars. I've had it for about 6 months now and it still works like it did day 1.
Features gets 2 stars because....the one feature it has isn't great.
Ease of Use gets 3 stars. Generic neutral rating there. Plug it inline with the antenna, plug in the IP bus, and wire up power and ground. Standard fare. On my 880prs deck it shows up as external and the faceplate shows HD/FM changes and full preset functionality. It integrates fairly well with the decks it's designed for.
Overall, not worth the money.
I bought this for my kids to replace the 3rd portable DVD player, plus to eliminate my CD's from the truck. This item has exceeded my expectations, being able to put all my music on a scan disk is awesome. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an in-dash dvd player.
Works great with the Pioneer radios!
great product, easy to install and set up, HD RADIO rocks!!!
Great Sound, Presets are a Mess
I purchased this when I purchased my AVH-P3300BT.
The setup is pretty simple as you connect your factory antenna to this module and then connect the module to either your head unit or to another Pioneer module (XM radio module).
Sound is fantastic in comparison to FM. Not quite CD quality but almost there. The device is also fairly quick to tune into each station and is instant if you are switching between the same multicast.
My only complaint is how the head unit stores the presets. Instead of the station name it stores them as Preset 1,2..... I don't get why my XM radio module can have its preset stored as the station name but this cant.
Great Reception and sound.
awesome reception and sounds great with my Pioneer AVH4200DVD head unit., an great price. Well worth the money, especially if you live in a large city, or close to a large city.
It is too bad that I do not live in a large metro area. The hills of western Pa. prevent me from hearing more HD FM radio and more HD AM radio. Yes I would like to listen to AM radio and the HD is better than the FM. Less fade out of the HD. You can hear it switch over to the analog broadcast. But the audio quality from the HD, whether AM or FM is just like they promote!!!! CD quality audio. The low bass notes from the Rap and Katy Perry type music just rumble my speakers from an HD station. A very worthwhile addition of this option with the Pioneer head unit. Someone did their homework for engineering.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy this, but im glad I did. Works great, and it's all clear, and new channels.
