Built-in Spotify and Pandora control
Do you depend on Pandora® and Spotify for your music? Pioneer builds touchscreen control of both services into this radio.

Thanks to Bluetooth, this Pioneer features hands-free calling with your compatible phone, plus the ability to wirelessly stream and control music from all the phones in your family. Use Siri Eyes Free voice control, with your compatible iPhone, to place calls, select music, hear notifications, add reminders — even compose and listen to text messages.
Watch video too
Add an optional rear-view camera to see what’s behind you on this 7″ touchscreen when you shift into reverse. And when you’re parked, the receiver’s Clear Resistive touchscreen plays video content in bright, clear detail. You’ll be able to view video content from your smart device with the addition of optional cables. You can also keep your passengers entertained by sending video from the receiver to a rear-seat screen.
Tune to your heart’s delight
The list of audio controls includes a 13-band graphic equalizer, time alignment, and automatic equalization (optional microphone required), along with built-in high- and low-pass crossovers with adjustable points and slopes. With playback capability of high-res FLAC files up to 192kHz/24 bit, you’ll achieve a listening experience on the par with the at-home experience.
iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras
