Our take on the Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX

Pioneer's AViC-8200NEX is more than just their flagship navigation receiver — it's a multimedia marvel that doesn't force you to choose which phone you can travel with. It offers compatibilty with both Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, two platforms for simplified integration of common smartphone functions through the receiver's advanced 7" capacitive touchscreen display.

High-res audio

Take your iPhone® or Android™ with you anywhere

Pioneer's AViC-8200NEX is more than just their flagship navigation receiver — it's a multimedia marvel that doesn't force you to choose which phone you can travel with. It offers compatibilty with both Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, two platforms for simplified integration of common smartphone functions through the receiver's advanced 7" capacitive touchscreen display.

Android Auto

Android Auto works with a simple one-cable connection between your Android phone and the AVIC-8200NEX. You'll see large icons for many common Android functions and apps on the receiver's screen, accessible via fingertip or voice control. You can pull up Google Maps, your phone's music library, messages, and apps for streaming songs (including Spotify, Pandora, and iHeartRadio) and podcasts without looking at or touching your phone. Android Auto can access your phone's contact info, allowing you to get in touch via hands-free calling or text mesaging. Get more info at

Your Android smartphone will need OS 5.0 (Lollipop) or newer to take advantage of Android Auto, and you'll also need a compatible microUSB cable such as the (or a similar microUSB-to-USB cable) to connect the phone to the receiver.

Apple CarPlay™ for convenient access

Apple CarPlay compatibility allows a Lightning™-to-USB connection to provide access to select apps on newer iPhones. Once connected, the receiver shows large icons for functions such as Maps, Phone, Messages, Music, Now Playing, and Podcasts. Several streaming apps — including Pandora® — work within the Apple CarPlay interface as well. Drivers can access these functions by touch or through Siri® voice control. Learn more at

Conveniently swap Apple and Android

The AVIC-8200NEX's ready for those times when you and another driver sport different phones. It can switch between Apple CarPlay and Android Auto automatically, depending on which kind of phone is connected, so there's no need to go through menu screeens to change settings. Your passengers can see how cool these features are as they ride shotgun, even if they've got a different phone than you do.

Slick 7" screen and interface

Pioneer's multi-touch 7" capacitive touchscreen gives you control of the onscreen action with pinch-to-zoom and other simple finger movements. You can flick your way to the next screen or song instead of using arrow keys on the menu. And the motorized display lets you find the optimum angle for interaction from the driver's seat. The included remote control lets you take charge without leaving fingerprints on the screen.

Pioneer's advanced NEX interface takes full advantage of the real estate to show you all your sources and other pertinent info, not to mention its easy-to-follow maps. When you're properly connected, your smartphone's travel-friendly apps will find a good home on the display. It even offers a "Power Off" mode in the source menu for those times when you want a completely dark screen. iPhone users also get Pioneer's AppRadio mode for in-dash command of several important apps.

Guidance you can count on

Tour the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico with confidence as the AVIC-8200NEX leads the way. It's got nearly 8 million included points of interest to help you find a nearby stopping point, or you can mark your own favorite spots for future reference. Worried about traffic delays? The Pioneer delivers live traffic updates to keep you ahead of congestion. Speed limit warnings help keep you alert of sudden changes and potentially unsafe situations. For a better look at the map, you can choose the level of map zoom manually.

Even better directions

Enhanced junction views and realistic street signs offer added assurance when it's time for the next maneuver. Text-to-speech voice prompts say actual street names at turns, and you can choose a "natural voice" to guide you. This offers a more human-sounding voice to lead the way, but doesn't announce road names. You'll also have 3D representations of landmarks and buildings keeping you oriented in urban areas.

Realistic depictions of interchanges and road signs keep you on the right path.

Bluetooth® for convenient calls and streaming

Wireless Bluetooth connectivity lets you keep in contact with others from the road with hands-free calling. The included external microphone gives your conversations plenty of clarity when you're talking through your compatible phone. And the receiver will work with most phones for wireless streaming audio, thanks to its advanced Hands-Free Profile technology. You'll also get smartphone app control through your devices:

  • iPhone: With a separate cable, you'll get control of your Aha Radio app through the receiver's touchscreen when connected. AppRadio Mode also gives you limited control over other select apps on your iPhone, including Pandora. You even get up to six station presets on Pandora when using it through AppRadio Mode.

  • Android: You'll get control of your smartphone's Pandora (with station creation) and Aha Radio apps through Bluetooth, so no cable needed.

Siri® Eyes Free or Google™ Now

In addition, you can use your smartphone voice commands via SIri Eyes Free or Google Now when the receiver's paired with your phone. You can perform any number of tasks such as making phone calls, hearing and composing texts, getting directions, choosing songs and playlists, and adding reminders with your voice.

Stay connected

The AVIC-8200NEX offers a generous helping of A/V connections to maintain access to your media. Its HDMI input opens the receiver up to some of the newest A/V sources around — including Android phones — and the two rear USB inputs are perfect for your digital tunes, including FLAC lossless files. And of course, you can always play your shiny CDs or DVDs with music, movies, or files on them, too.

Make it movie night in your driveway

While you're parked, you can view video on DVDs or from other sources on the AVIC-8200NEX's 7" screen. You can also tap into video content on your iPod or smartphone with the help of the correct cable (not included). When you're on the road, you can play movies through a rear-seat monitor for your passengers, so they can stay entertained. Dual-zone capability lets you enjoy the radio or another audio source up front while your passengers watch their favorite movies with headphones in the back.

See things more safely with one or two cameras

You can also connect up to two cameras, so you can see more of what's near your vehicle when getting in and out of tight spots. Need to pull up your rear-view camera in a hurry? A dedicated icon in the source menu gives you instant access.

Turn it up, not out

The AVIC-8200NEX's built-in 13-band graphic equalizer, Auto EQ, and Time Alignment let you shape the sonic output to suit your tastes. Use the high- and low-pass crossover's adjustable points and slopes for further adjustments, and engage the Advanced Sound Retriever to fill in the missing "gaps" in your compressed music files to restore them to CD-like clarity.

HD Radio

Radio expansion options

The AVIC-8200NEX features a built-in HD Radio™ tuner which allows you to hear improved fidelity and reception from participating AM/FM stations all over. The receiver also features a connection for an optional satellite radio tuner, so you can enjoy SiriusXM's extensive programming with your subscription.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras

The AVIC-8200NEX offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the (not included).

  • Ford SYNC systems: you'll be able to retain voice-controlled features, steering wheel audio controls, and factory audio functions
  • GM vehicles: you'll keep your steering wheel audio controls, your factory amp, safety warning chimes, and OnStar

    Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX Reviews

    Average Customer Review(s):

    (70 Reviews)

    I put this in my '07 Fusion. Holly cow! There is nothing that this unit cannot control, and control well! Crutchfield should offer an online course to reveal ALL that it can do ;). Having said that, it is extremely intuitive to operate and set. Beautiful capacitive big screen! It integrates extremely well with iPhone, both Bluetooth and HDMI connection (via adaptor). I haven't used Apple car play so I cannot speak for that; All my music files are FLAC. I have this unit with: Alpine PDX-4 ( JL c2's in rear doors & JL C5 components up front) and an Alpine PDX-M12 ( JL 12W7AE-3 in the trunk). The navigation is great, Sirius XM works well (with adaptor) Receiving and transmitting voice couldn't be any better. This thing will do everything my upper mid range home theatre receiver will do.




    This thing is awesome. Syncs easily to my iPhone. Easy to use and search. It's like an extension of my phone with radio functions. I still have yet to use it to its full potential but will given more time with it.

    Pros: Too many to list them all.

    Cons: None


    works better than expected

    Pros: Still learning about the product

    Cons: So far nothing


    What can I say. It does what they said. Installation was easy.

    Pros: non

    Cons: non


    Outstand unit...great sound with good power.

    Pros: superb sound

    Cons: none


    This radio does it all, and probably a little more. I have enjoyed getting it going in my 01 Acura, and it has breathed new life into an old car. Cars really haven't changed all that much since 2001, aside from the infotainment and of course the gas mileage. With this stereo installed, it feels like my car is ten years newer. One downside is that in my car, the radio is set at a spot down by the shifter, which was OK back in the day because the radio did not have a huge distracting screen. Nowadays, manufacturers generally put the radio up closer to eye level for safety. I have had to concentrate on not looking at the radio for too long because when I'm looking at it my eyes are completely off the road. Thankfully, it has a handy feature where you can actually tilt the screen from the bottom so it it more in line with your line of sight if it's mounted low. The integrated navigation system has nifty and very handy graphical representations of major junctions and the signs, and even presents a 3D representation of the downtown area of cities, right down to accurate color pictures of the buildings. My big gripe and the reason I had to give four stars is the total failure of the "AVIClink" app to work. It fails to connect with the unit either by wire or BT. This means no connected navigation features. Most users have this issue, according to the app reviews. This means no traffic (except for the inferior FM radio traffic) and no map updates. Quite disappointing.

    Pros: Big, clear screen Every feature known to man The small buttons sit on a weird little shelf No mute button that I've found yet

    Cons: AVIC link is a total failure that will not connect to the unit Expensive


    Don't have the unit operational yet

    Pros: Not sure yet

    Cons: I can't get the Bluetooth ASPECT of this unit to work properly I called the install help line who were very helpful but they thought it could have a bad microphone but they didn't have a new one to send me either so for now not so great


    Great product, features are much more functional than I expected. I previously had a Kenwood in-dash navi unit, and the Pioneer blows it away. Plus, the Kenwood died after 3-1/2 years, so I wasn't eager to try them again. The Pioneer has incredible sound, even with my factory speakers in a 2011 Subaru. The only minor complaint I have is that sun glare sometimes makes the screen difficult to see. As for installation, fairly straight forward, only had one or two hiccups along the way, primarily with the ASWC1 steering wheel controls. The ASWC manufacturer installation instructions had me hook up a wire that caused a conflict with the Pioneer unit which made it go haywire. One call to the folks at Crutchfield Tech Support and they indeed verified that the mfg instructions were wrong (they had the correct info in their systems), and 20 minutes later I was back in business. Other problem was with the wiring harness, but it was my own fault, again the guys at Crutchfield had me fixed up in five minutes. No issues since. This is why I keep coming back to Crutchfield!

    Pros: Great functionality

    Cons: Conflict with the ASWC1 instructions, not Pioneer's fault.


    Very happy with this head unit. The menus are easy to navigate thru. Apple Car Play feature is seamless hands free operation. The GPS feature is great, and up to date.




    Just learning. So far so good. Note push buttons some time hard to engage. Hope its just newness




    All great except Android connection.


    Cons: Connectivity for Android


    I absolutely love this unit! Until you actually operate it in person, you can't appreciate the capacitive touchscreen. I installed this unit in a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado Extended Cab and even though Crutchfield says it doesn't fit, it does with minor modifications. The stock radio chassis has a plastic support bracket that must be cut (I used an dremel) to allow for the Pioneer wiring harness and enlarged chassis. I paired this unit with the idatalink maestro kit and I was able to retain and customize every steering wheel control, access all my gauges (RPM, fuel capacity, transmission temperature, etc.), as well as retain the door chime with the supplied speaker. Android auto (Note 4 user) works well, but you must use the stock usb cable or an equivalent data cable (Anker cables seem to work). The navigation works flawlessly even with the nav antenna mounted inside the truck on the dash. The only bad thing about this unit when paired with the idatalink harness is the insane amount of wiring you need to tuck away in the dash. As an experienced installer, this unit took me every bit of 3 hours to install from start to finish, including making all connections with heat shrinked butt connectors.

    Pros: Capacitive Touchscreen Navigation Idatalink

    Cons: Pricey Installation may be difficult if paired with idatalink


    This is rated as one of the top decks available and it does not disappoint. The display is stellar, the navigation system is excellent, and Android Auto performs flawlessly. This updated my wife's Highlander from a basic system to state of the art. It blows away the stock system in my Odyssey, so I am now extremely jealous. The installation kit provided the necessary wiring to plug into the existing system and mounting plastic to cover the left and right of the deck as it is slightly smaller than the factory deck. Now my wife wants me to get another one for our RV. There was one area where Crutchfield failed me though. The navigation requires hooking into the speed sensor, backup sensor, and parking brake. No information where to find these was supplied, so I had to go online to find the information. That should be included in the installation instructions.

    Pros: Excellent navigation, Android Auto, Bluetooth, all perform beautifully.

    Cons: Incomplete installation instructions.


    Installed this in an 07 Odyssey. I got the steering wheel control package to go with it. Wiring harness was extremely easy to wire up to the unit, with all wires color coded perfectly matched to the head unit. The most time consuming part was routing the microphone, GPS antenna, aux in, HDMI in, and USB throughout the dashboard. Steering wheel controls work perfectly. Radio reception is incredible compared to the factory unit. CarPlay works beautifully. Integrated GPS works great too. Absolutely no complaints about this unit. The sound is a huge improvement over factory. Great channel separation. Highs sparkle, and the lows are stronger. I'm still using factory speakers, but with the 8200NEX, they sound brand new.

    Pros: Great sound, capacitive display, ease of installation, tons of useful features like CarPlay, GPS, DVD, and HD Radio

    Cons: None


    I upgraded from the Avic 140BH, that I had for 5 years. My main reason for upgrading was needing to feel safer playing music. We moved to a place where satellite radio doesn't come in. I have a Samsung phone, and play music through downloaded Amazon music. The old unit was great, but it did not integrate with android phones, it is mainly an iPhone unit. So, I ordered this head unit, hoping I could figure out how to install it. All I had to do was follow the wires with the existing harness and the new unit. In my case, I already had integrated steering controls and they continued to work with the new head unit. So within a few hours, would have been less but it took awhile to feed all the wires (extra USB and HDMI) through my minivan so they came out in the shelf below (where previous installers had them). I have to go back in and finish install with wire crimps and the new Sirius receiver (maybe, just maybe I can get it to come in better... free for 3 months was to good to pass up if it works). I can push the speak button, or just say "OK google" and while it is playing my Amazon music from the display, I can say "navigate to" and get directions or option to call the place! While doing all this, it then reads my text to me and let's me answer them with voice commamds. All without taking my eyes off the road!! I loved my other unit, but this goes above and beyond!!




    First off this Pioneer unit beats the heck out of the JBL unit I discarded from my Toyota Venza. The touchscreen on the JBL dropped down 1/4" on one side. I tried to push it back up and then used a small screwdriver to get it the rest of the way up. Well, I managed to crack the screen. The Toyota dealer would not repair it under warranty but was willing to charge me to have it repaired. I told them I would only pay for a replacement upgrade and not pay to have a hunk of junk repaired. The Pioneer navigation is much easier to use. I especially like the 3D view as opposed to the 2D, flat map view. The radio and audio is equal to or better than the JBL. One feature I liked on the JBL was the ability to send and receive Text, SMS, messages while driving. The Pioneer does not have it built in, but you can connect your smart phone, mine is Android, through a USB cable. Then download the Android Auto app. This allows voice commands through your smart phone and will read u any text messages you receive while driving. You can also reply to a text by voice. It won't allow you to type a message while driving. I installed the Pioneer myself. It was not easy! I felt the documentation supplied by Crutchfield was lacking. I ended up with several of the wiring adapters left over. I don't know if they are needed. The Pioneer works as promised, but I would not recommend doing it yourself unless you have extensive automotive and electronic experience. 1 problem backup camera is intermittent.

    Pros: Easy to use navigation. Good audio. I love being able to read my tire pressures and OBD codes.

    Cons: Backup camera is intermittent. Screen difficult to see because of sun glare. But, it's due to the shape of my dash and windshield. A magazine laid on the dash to provide shade cures it.


    This item is great, a serious media warehouse. Many options at once with this interface. I do like the custom screen saver option as well as the sd card usage. The music output is really good and will probably upgrade speakers next as the oem speakers cannot keep up with this system... a true beast and worth buy.

    Pros: Independent GPS Inputs for numerous options, a very compatible device All Screen, nice touch on metal brushed control panel with color changing illumination to match your vehicle.

    Cons: Could use a tilt forward option, does have a down tilt option but only from standard position Would be nice if it had a communicative AI but that's asking a lot


    Better then expected Love it. Easy to install, no problems at all

    Pros: Easy to install

    Cons: None


    Still getting used to this new addition to my motorhome. I upgraded the software which turned out to be a bit of a task. Make sure you put in your exact model number and then search for the software. Installation was not difficult. The unit will not work without the "switched" power being present. So, I installed a physical switch to allow me to use the unit while the motorhome is parked and turned off. I do not think you can save routes in the GPS. It would be handy to be able to save routes and recall them. Perhaps this could be accomplished using a SD card. For my use the remote is very useful. I can mute the unit from across the room. I have not used the GPS yet.




    I replace a kenwood dnn990hd for this radio an I'm amaze with all the functions of this radio. The navigation functions does more then any Garmin navigation device I have every used. I love that this radio has both CarPlay and android function because I used both of these smartphones. I couldn't ask for anything else in a radio.




    Awesome headunit ????




    Awesome product! Everything works smooth as can be. Only problem I had was updating the map,Not a pioneer issue. Naviextras toolbox needs some upgrades?, had same problems updating my Harley. Crutchfield knocked it out of the park with the install kit, everything fit perfect and integrated perfectly with the vehicle!

    Pros: Everything about this unit is built with quality. Looks very sharp. Screen is very easy to read in the daylight, and not too bright at night.

    Cons: None


    Worth every penny!




    Very good product. Easy to use and the install was pretty straight forward. I used the online chat to help pick my products and the staff was helpful and very friendly. The best thing I like about the pioneer 8200nex is the screen. It is iPhone similar and not a "sticky" or "plastic feel" like other touchscreen double din nav receivers. One con about the pioneer 8200nex is I feel the processor can sometimes lag. It's not a deterrent but plugging my IPhone into the reciever sometimes has a couple second lag. It could just be Apple car play becoming active on my phone that takes a couple seconds. Overall I've very happy with my purchase and Crutchfield's service and advice!




    Great product with massive functionality (still learning it all). I've owned an Avic D-2 for the last 10+ years in my 2005 GMC Sierra Crew-cab, a compination which I loved, but this is a huge improvement. I was able to install this using the same steering wheel control (SWI-PS), door chime, and faceplate I've been using with the D-2. The sound out of this, married with Polk composites in the front doors and polk midrange speakers in the rear doors is amazing (thanks for the Polk recommendation). Only two things bother me about this new system...1. The Avic D-2 allowed "tracking", which allowed me to drop a popcorn trail of where I'd been (helpful for tracking my way back out of areas not on the map). 2. Upgrading the map was not cleary spelled out in the user's manual (eventually figured it out and all is fine). Even taking those things into account this is an awesome unit that is well-worth the money.




    Enjoying the new stereo so far. Had a little bit of an issue figuring how to hook up the adapter I bought to keep my steering wheel controls but I was able to. Those instructions weren't very good but the stereo instructions were excellent. Still learning how to use all the features though.

    Pros: Lots of features

    Cons: Almost too many features


    Product worked for one day and then completely locked up. Had to do a hard reset for the unit to work. If this is any indication of the quality if this unit I must say I am more than concerned. Other than that the unit is packed with features and makes life on the road a lot easier being able to reply to messages well listening to my favorite tunes. Time will tell if the unit will give me any more problems. Only had the unit installed for 2 days so far so we are only at a 50% success rate.

    Pros: Nice looking unit that is full of awesome features.

    Cons: Unit has already locked up for a day after only being installed for 2 days.


    Okay, so this head unit is full of features... Apple Carplay, Android auto, GPS, DVD player, HD Radio and Bluetooth connectivity. All work seamlessly. I listen to a lot of music through my iPhone via iTunes... I was extremely disappointed with the sound quality of the Pioneer. My original factory head unit sound was amazing compared to this unit!. So I thought no way would the flagship head unit of Pioneer would be inferior to my original factory head unit. The Pioneer head unit has an overwhelming amount of adjustments for sound to include a 13 band equalizer. It will drive you crazy to adjust the crossover, sound delay, speaker height and the equalizer. I began my research utilizing the internet especially Youtube and found an abundance of videos on the Pioneer head unit. I found that Pioneer makes a microphone specifically for adjusting the sound quality to your specific environment... Unfortunately it is not included with the head unit. THIS IS A MUST HAVE!! After purchasing this microphone separately, I went on Youtube and found directions on how to use it (directions not included with microphone). So now! what a difference!!! Night and day... The Pioneer absolutely blew away my beloved factory unit. I cannot tell you how amazing the sound is... If you already have this head unit, do yourself a favor and get that little microphone. It is very easy to setup and you'll be amazed with the sound.

    Pros: Too many to list!

    Cons: Sound adjustment microphone not included.


    I would say that I should have installed an aftermarket radio a long time ago, but many years ago the technology was likely not what it was today either. My factory radio in my '02 F-250 the CD portion of it went bad many years ago but I just never wanted to change out the radio. I had a standalone GPS unit so aside from the limited music when traveling it wasn't every a really big deal. Several years ago after purchasing a newer Mustang with in-dash GPS and a line in jack so I could listen to my iPod music I thought originally this was what I wanted for the truck, but the more I read reviews on sound quality I was turned off by it then started looking at in-dash replacements that just gave me some simple functions and by the time I decided on which one there I wasn't far off from purchasing one with GPS and all the bells and whistles built in and eventually just pulled the trigger and purchased Pioneer's flagship unit for my truck and couldn't be happier. The sound was the first thing that I noticed. Even with the factory speakers, the sound coming from them now is night and day different from the factory head unit. Next is the bluetooth connection for the phone. I called my friends and family and they couldn't believe i was talking through my radio. They said it was clearer than talking through the phone. And now I use Siri all the time in the truck to do everything with the phone so it's totally hands free and I love it. I highly recommend this unit or one from this series




    Love,love this product, you guys are AWESOME!!




    So far so good. Very fast start up. Great sound. Wonderful support from Crutchfield.




    First off, this deck fits a 2009 Suburban Z71 with stock Bose and navigation despite Crutchfield's search parameters stating it won't fit. It wasn't easy to get it in straight, but it looks great now. Amazing sound with the stock Bose equipment. The bass is deep and the multiple EQ allow you to make it your own. The navigation took a road trip to get used to, but it is way better than any Garmin I have used, plus lane assist, 3-D images etc. Capacitive touch screen is especially nice. All the extras make driving with the family pleasant again. The ability to listen to music up front while the kids are watching a movie in back is priceless! (Our suburban has wireless headphones that link with the rear monitor, otherwise they would have to watch the video and hear our music. Pioneer needs to find a fix for this and every person with kids would buy this deck for road trips or long commutes) Easy to bypass the front video display lock so passengers can watch video while driving, if it's not illegal to do so. No grounding the parking break line. Thanks youtube. Haven't tried Android auto since we use waze for traffic and police information and it is a hassle to link with the 2 cable system. No comments on iPhone info. Wish I would have installed this in my other vehicles. Buy it!

    Pros: Dual zone output Amazing Sound Great Navigation Plays the kids DVDs

    Cons: Pricey No dual zone sound output, need headphones that link to separate monitor to hear movies No WAZE! :(


    The 8200 is Pioneer's the top of the line navigation/back-up camera, CD Player, Sirius/AM/FM Radio, available. Along with the install kit and the Sirius adapter, installation was simple and straight forward with absolutely no problems. I installed my unit in my old 2004 Chevy SSR and appearance wise, you couldn't ask for a nicer looking radio and Perfect fit - my car was made for this radio! The only issue is that even though there is a remote, you still get finger prints on the radio face itself - I guess that's the nature of the beast!

    Pros: More options than you can ever use...pretty simple to program & operqate

    Cons: None - can't find Anything that would need improvement!


    I bought the 4100 nex few years ago my. Girlfriend wanted a radio in my car so i.bought the 8200 nex for my. Car for the.navigation and.capactive touchscreen and put the 4100.nex in.her car i was stuck.between the nex8200 and kenwood dnx893s after reading the reviews in the dnx893s i decide to.stick to.what works the pionerr nex8200 ive had . kenwood in the.past yes garmin is nice. But there more to.a radio.then 1 thing

    Pros: Navigation is smooth good interface

    Cons: It would be.nice if pioneer Included calbration mic with the radio for the price there asking


    Outstanding on all fronts, even my entire collection on the SD card in flac format sounds fantastic. Thoroughly impressed with the GPS system, so much easier to use and follow than the Garmin & Tom-Tom I have had.

    Pros: Nav, SD

    Cons: None yet


    Absolutely love it, big upgrade from my factory radio in my f150. The wiring is a little daunting and would recommend if you don't have much experience to have a professional do it, even with all the hardware included. But great radio, no complaints yet. Great bang for the buck. Great addition.

    Pros: Great look, no complaints yet.

    Cons: Install is a little confusing.


    The Pioneer AVIC 8200nex delivers what it promised. Pairing the cell phone took one minute. You should check the website for firmware updated for the radio and the Bluetooth. Follow the directions carefully and it will work. You can also add a custom background picture which gives the radio personal touch. One complaint, I wish that there were a way to customize the number of icons on the screens. There are so many icons on the display; you cannot really see the background picture. You can save custom screen configurations for colors the themes, but not the number of things on the screen.




    Awesome sound! The GPS works flawlessly.




    Excellent overall performance from this unit. Controls are easy to access and understand and the interface to my vehicle was perfect. Also very easy to install with the Crutchfield supplied adapter kit. No lag when using the touch screen and the Navigation is smooth and very readable.

    Pros: Very well thought out unit!!

    Cons: Takes a little longer than I'd like to boot up.


    The stereo works great. The features are easy to navigate. I had a Kenwood before and I'm pleased with it




    Great head unit, tied into alpine r speakers and shorty r sub with kicker amps, this thing rocks in my Jeep Wrangler jku




    This unit is AWESOME !!!!! Very easy to operate and is loaded with great features. Worth every penny !!!!!!

    Pros: Easy. Install in my 2016 ram pickup . Nothing to complain about here. You get what you pay for

    Cons: NONE


    Actually I give it a 4.5 but the civet is that there seems to be no sub woofer increase setting. Everything else seems to be working just fine. Using Android Auto with out a hitch, Pandora. (Worth the extra amount to get the yearly sub and have no commercials.) Have used its GPS and android Auto = Google maps. No problem. HD radio sounds assume. Replaced all the speakers and added a sub too. Installed in a 2017 Nissan Frontier crew cab.

    Pros: Seems oddly totally intuitive.

    Cons: Nothing yet, except would of liked a sub woofer "loudness" adjustment. had another AV style only and it had that, this one if it has it I have not found it.


    An awesome unit!! I've never had Pioneer before but I'm def sticking with it! Great great great buy. Brings my Tundra to the next level.




    This is a great unit gives you everything you want in a head unit

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Price


    I spent quite a bit of time researching and comparing this unit to other GPS navigation head units from Alpine. We chose to add the SiriusXM tuner and are using every source, including USB and SDHC memory cards. Simply said: It's a great choice and I'm thrilled with the features, the easy-to-use interface and the sound! I chose a custom image for the background, the Marine Corps Eagle, Globe and Anchor (because I earned the title). You'll love the customization too. I added a Brandmotion backup camera with license plate mount for my Ford F-350 Super Duty Crew Cab and I don't have to stress about parking lots any more! This head unit does it all! I used the Crutchfield master sheet instructions to guide the installation and am very satisfied with the overall quality. The steering wheel controls work well with the unit and It was nice knowing that Crutchfield technical support was available if I needed it. Definitely a 10 out of 10 purchase, very satisfied with the experience!

    Pros: Great sound, fully featured, every source available!

    Cons: None yet...glad I waited for Crutchfield to lower the price!


    It is an Awesome Product and I would recommend it to anyone who is willing to spend there money in it, it literally is everything you need and want in a car and everything is extremely customizable, awesome product 10 out of 10 !

    Pros: Customizable, Easy to Learn, Simple Set Up, Has All necessities that you need for music and movies and so on

    Cons: None that I have came across


    the best head unit i have bought so far works very well love all the features and speaker options the auto calibrate with mic works very well love the xm radio and the high def radio love the dvd system can play custom made dvds with just music on them not much more you can ask for the gps works very well way better them my old tom tom and garmin gps systems very accurate on the speed and love the vehicle features cant fault the price i pay the 1500 dollars for it back when it first came out was worth every penny

    Pros: eq system changeable colors so many different features for customizing sound and speaker and subs inputs and outputs video is great connectability to in vehicle dvd systems

    Cons: non so far


    Great touchscreen head unit. Installed it in my Jeep JK and it works great with the iDatalink Maestro and the Jeeps connectivity group buttons. Only problems I am having is with the auto connect feature for Bluetooth to my phone, but not a huge issue.




    Glad I made the purchase. It has everything I was looking for in a head unit.




    Amazing value for the discounted price

    Pros: Value package for price

    Cons: Nothing thus far


    Outstanding product. Easy to operate and the ap carplay the best.

    Pros: The built and quality outstanding. Easy to operate, the nav is very accurate love the ap carplay. The screen looks and feels like my iphone. Pooneer you've done it again

    Cons: None






    I had the AVIC-8200nex with satellite radio, and kenwood CMOS backup camera installed professionally in my 2003 F150 King Ranch Super Crew. I would recommend having no it professionally installed; from speaking with my installer (whom turned out to be a friend of the family, so I trust his advice), these trucks need the plastic "burl wood" surround trimmed for double DIN stereos with a folding faceplate. When done professionally, you'll hardly notice, and if you really want, you can hydro coat it and wouldn't ever know, but I'm pretty picky, and you can't tell unless you really look for it, so I'm good. Now about the's awesome! The Lund is 10x better than before, don't think I need anymore bass (I.e. Subwoofer), but if/when these speakers give up the ghost, I may add a small one then. With this u it you can adjust the crossover (front and back), and individually adjust each speaker gain and time lapse. I've got more control over my sound than I've ever had on a car stereo. The apple play works great, but only when plugged into the phone, it doesn't work over Bluetooth with my IPhone 5s. The hands free with Siri is awesome, just speak what you want to listen to or where you want to go. I did a lot of research for the stereo I wanted. Price didn't matter on this one... Capacitive screen, Garmin gps, free traffic updates, Apple and android capatible, etc..this unit fit the bill, and rated the top GPS unit for 2016. You can't go wrong with this unit.

    Pros: Everything works as advertised Sounds great User friendly display and menu

    Cons: By a HD cable if you have it installed Cannot find out how to get weather on my screen, but only had it for a few days now Cannot update maps with a Mac PC


    This is a great unit. it works great and is easy to use. The screen brightness & clarity is just perfect during day or night. The sound is so much better than most units I've Installed before.

    Pros: Easy to install and I kept the steering wheel control functionality.

    Cons: None yet.


    Great product and great service from Crutchfield. Navigation,bluetooth,and radio/dvd player that work smoothly.




    The 8200 is excellent, the brightness & clarity of the screen, the sound quality, and the functionality are great. Had issue connecting Android Auto to my Samsung S7, but with Crutchfield Support (Thanks for the help & patience) we managed to get it working. I'm glad I purchased from Crutchfield, their knowledge & support is outstanding. Note, big selling point is Waze App is soon to be released for Android Auto.

    Pros: Aftermarket unit with functionality that exceeds latest oem units. Tech support outstanding with Crutchfield.

    Cons: Wish Android Auto would connect through bluetooth


    Truly awesome. Coming from an AVIC 850BT, to the Avic 8200NEX is like going 10 years in time forward! If you've used any Avic beforehand, this unit will be easy for you to program.

    Pros: Loaded full of features, beautiful looking screen, lots of aux in's and well with IPOD and Android phones.

    Cons: None


    The AVIC-8200NEX does it all,great unit.

    Pros: Easy install,sounds great.

    Cons: None


    Everything works great the only thing that I have a problem with is, when you are using navigation and you get a phone call you are loosing the map.




    This unit is great so far. There is so many features. I've only had it for a couple of weeks and still finding new things. The SD card is read instantly. You can use a bigger card than 32gb SD card even though the description and manual says you can't. You just have to format it in NTFS. I have a 64gb card in it now. You can also mirror your Samsung Note 7, S7, S7 Edge screen to the deck using a Microsoft wireless hdmi adaptor and the smart view feature on the phone (Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, etc..). The navigation works great. Sound is good. I bought the optional microphone and had the unit tune the time delay, sound by itself.

    Pros: Many, many, many features. Pretty much plays anything and everything. Software reads SD card slot, USB 2 drives very quickly.

    Cons: $$$Price$$$ you pay for all this technology


    Nice, nice, nice. Functions are easy, features are numerous and the sound is kick-ass.

    Pros: Easy to use and to set up. Sounds fantastic.

    Cons: All I want to do is listen to it!


    This radio is awesome very happy about it installation was easy everything looks great and sounds great I'm very happy




    I have nothing negative to say about this receiver. Great features once you figure out how to use it all.




    Absolutely amazing is all there is to say! I enjoy having the touchscreen.

    Pros: Does anything & everything

    Cons: None as of yet


    Great radio took about an hour and a half. Navigation easy to follow with the on screen display.

    Pros: Easy installation. touch screen is easy to navigate.

    Cons: None


    Nice radio. Not sure of the real benefit of the swipe screen? You may want to think twice before buying the newest model. I think that is the only real upgrade?

    Pros: Easy install. Easy to navigate

    Cons: The Apple Car Play does not seem to work if you need to extend the length of USB with more than one extension. For example. I tried to use a PAC USBCBL 6' USB Cable Extension w/ bracket with a 6' USB extension (2 USB cords plus apple lightening cord). Apple Car play would not work with the 6' USB extension in line.

    Onboard Navigation

    HERE Navigation: The AVIC-8200NEX offers a comprehensive map database from HERE covering the entire United States (including Alaska & Hawaii), Canada, and Puerto Rico enabling users to route to millions of destinations; including 7.9 Million points of interest (POIs). The map database is stored on the head unit's built in 8GB flash memory.

    Note: Car navigation maps are frequently updated. While this database was judged to be as accurate as possible at the time of its release, a map database can never be 100% accurate. Road information that is maintained in the map databases, such as turn restrictions or road names may change over time.

    Map Updates: Customers are eligible to update to the latest available map database free of charge during the first 45 days of operation (from the unit's first receipt of an active GPS signal). To update the map database, visit the to download the Naviextras Toolbox on your computer (requires Windows XP or newer; not compatible with Mac) and USB thumbdrive.

    GPS Technology: The AVIC-8200NEX accurately measures your current location by the Global Positioning System, a network of satellites orbiting the earth to give you time and position information. The accuracy of the GPS information depends upon how good the reception is. The unit features a built-in GPS receiver and comes with a GPS antenna. The AVIC-8200NEX also utilizes a speed sensing cable for better accuracy of your vehicle's movement; this wire should always be connected to your vehicle's speed detection circuit.

    Note: The navigation receiver took approximately 13.7 seconds to calculate directions from Charlottesville, Virginia to Los Angeles California. It only took 12.1 seconds to calculate directions from Charlottesville, Virginia to Baltimore, Maryland. These tests were done inside the of the Crutchfield Headquarters. Results will vary based on length of calculated route and your surrounding area.

    Real-Time Traffic Updates: Partnering with Clear Channel Broadcasting's Total Traffic Network, the built-in traffic tuner provides real-time traffic data for over 90 major cities in North America, including US and Canada. Check your commute route in advance or re-route to your destination to avoid traffic congestion. There is no subscription cost and no annoying on-screen advertisements.

    • Road segments affected by traffic incidents are displayed with an alternate color on the map and small symbols above the road show the nature of the incident.
    • When traffic information that may affect your route is received, this system will warn you that it is recalculating the route and navigation will continue with a new route that is optimal considering the most up-to-date traffic conditions.

    On-Screen Map: The Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX displays a real-time moving map illustrating your current position and intended route. It will show map scale and geographic details such as lakes, rivers, highways, buildings, and towns. Your route is marked with a green line, while your vehicle is indicated by a red arrow on the screen, and checkered flag marks your destination. As you travel the AVIC-8200NEX guides to your destination with arrows on the map and directions at the top of the screen. The map screen will also indicate the distance to your next maneuver. During your calculated route, distance to your final destination, timed need to reach the final destination, and estimated arrival time are all displayed on-screen. You can adjust the following map settings.

    • 2D/3D Map Modes (w/ Landmarks): The Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX allows you to view its on-screen map in a 2D (two-dimensional) or 3D (three-dimensional) view. 2D View displays a normal two-dimensional map with North or your direction at the top of map screen. Similar to paper road maps, the 2D mode, shows you streets, roads, and elevation by color. In 3D mode, your direction is at the top of the map screen and you can see the altitude and elevations differences. You can distinguish between valleys, mountains, and elevated roads. In selected cities 3D landmarks and 3D buildings are also displayed on the map, so you can better distinguish the surroundings around you.
    • Color Mode: You can switch between daytime and nighttime color modes or let the head unit's software switch between the two mode automatically a few minutes before sunrise and a few minutes after sunset.
    Note: The on-screen map offers Smart Zoom. When you approach a turn, the map will zoom in and raise the view angle to let you easily recognize your maneuver at the next junction. If the turn is at a distance, it will zoom out and lower the view angle to be flat so you can see the road in front of you.

    Lane Guidance & Signposts: The Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX's navigation map offers helpful lane information and signpost guidance, along with exit service.

    Route Calculation: The Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX calculates your route based on your Vehicle Type, Route Method, and Avoidances.

    • Vehicle Type: You select what type of vehicle you are driving, so the navigation unit can determine the best route based on your vehicle type (Car, Truck, Emergency, Bus, or Taxi).
    • Route Method: You can choose which route method (Fastest, Shortest, Green, Economical, or Easy) the navigation unit should use when calculating your route.
      • Fastest: give a quick route, if you can travel at or near the speed limit on all roads. Usually the best section for fast and normal cars
      • Shortest: gives a route that has the smallest total distance of all possible routes. It can be practical for slow vehicles
      • Economical: combines the benefits of Fast and Short; calculates as if it were calculating the Fast route, but it takes other roads as well to save fuel
      • Easy: results in a route with fewer turns and no difficult maneuvers
    • Avoidances: You can tell the navigation unit to avoid certain types of roads along your calculated route, such as - Highways, Tolls, Carpool/HOV, Unpaved Roads, and/or Ferries.

    Detours/Alternatives/Auto Reroute: You can select "Route Alternative" to see the turn-list and map screen of four routes (Fastest/Shortest/Economical/Easy) with the selected route planning parameters, giving you the option to select which route to take. You can also choose to Detour around the road ahead, avoid a specific road, or around a section of the route. If you depart from the original route, the navigation system recalculates the route and provides new directions.

    Route Planner + Itinerary w/ Route Simulation: The Route Planner feature lets you built your route using the list of destinations you have chosen. You can modify the list as you like (adding or removing a destination (waypoint), changing a final destination, or setting a new starting position. The Itinerary page displays turn-by-turn instructions for your entire route and the distance between turns. You can preview all the route information and simulate travel along a projected route.

    Monitors: The Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX provides a Trip Monitor that contains useful information about your trip and a Fuel Consumption Monitor that helps keep track of fuel mileage.

    • Trip Monitor: The Trip Monitor contains useful information about your trip. This information can be saved manually when you reach your destination or automatically along your route. Trip log data includes; Start/End Time, Avg./Max. Speed, Total/Driving/Stopped Time, Total Distance, and Min./Max. Altitude.
    • Fuel Consumption Monitor: The Fuel Consumption Monitor helps you keep track of the fuel consumption of your car even if you do not use the navigation system for all your journeys. Set the initial odometer value and then record the distance driven and the amount of fuel whenever you fill up your car. You can also se reminders for regular car maintenance.

    HD Radio: The Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX's built-in HD Radio tuner lets you listen to the radio with the same fidelity as your digital music. HD Radio features high quality audio, FM multi-casting, and data services. With HD Radio, your FM stations offer near CD-quality sound, AM stations provide FM-like sound, and there is crystal-clear reception with no audio distortion. Best of all, HD Radio is 100% subscription free. The unit's tuner also supports analog AM/FM broadcasts.

    • Supertuner IIID: The Supertuner IIID features Feed Forward Control, which avoids multi-path interference. This pre-detection of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion. In addition, the Supertuner IIID creates enhanced stereo during multi-path interference, unlike conventional tuners that collapse to mono. Digital processing reduces distortion, and improves Signal-to-Noise Ratio and stereo separation. Advanced analog technology improves signal processing sensitivity.
    • Station Text/Album Art + RDS: AM/FM digital stations can offer text and data such as artist names and song titles. The head unit also supports Album Art from select HD Radio stations. For analog FM stations, the Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as song/artist information when listening to compatible RDS FM stations.
    • Multicasting: In addition to conventional broadcasts, with HD Radio broadcasting it is possible to choose from up to 3 multicast programs (HD1 to HD3, and analog). There are also data programs for each program.
    • Reception Blending: If a digital broadcast reception condition gets poor, this unit automatically switches to the analog broadcast of the same frequency level. If this function is set to "On", the tuner switches between digital broadcast and analog broadcast automatically. If this function is 'Off', reception will be conducted within an analog broadcast.
    • BSM (Best Stations Memory): The BSM (Best Stations Memory) function lets you automatically store the six strongest analog or HD stations under preset buttons 1-6 of the currently tuned band. The tuner has 3 FM banks and 1 AM bank. You can store 6 presets for each bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM presets.
    • Local Tuning: Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. There are 4 level of sensitivity for FM and two levels for AM. The higher settings allow reception of only the strongest stations, while lower settings let you receive progressively weaker stations.
    • iTunes Tagging: It is possible to save the song's information (tag) from a HD Radio or RDS FM broadcasting station to your USB-direct connected iPod/iPhone. The songs will show up in a playlist called "Tagged" in iTunes the next time you sync your iPod/iPhone. Then you can directly buy the songs you want from the iTunes Music Store.

    Note: HD Radio is the system for digital AM and FM broadcasting in the U.S. More than 2,000 radio stations are broadcasting their primary signals in digital HD Radio technology, as a free service. Go to to check for HD Radio stations in your area.

    Audio Section

    24-Bit/192kHz DAC: The Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX is equipped with a 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converter for superb quality audio playback from disc, USB, iPod/iPhone, Android, and Bluetooth.

    MOSFET50 Internal Amplifier: This receiver is equipped with a 50 watts x 4 (peak) MOSFET amplifier for low distortion, high power output. The amplifier is strong enough to power small subwoofers to moderate volume levels in compact cars and pickups. For higher volume levels from subwoofers, an optional amplifier may be connected to the preamp outputs.

    • CTA-2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (or 50 watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)
    Note: The power specifications for the AVIC-8200NEX are compliant with the CTA-2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.

    4V/6CH Preamp Outputs + Sub Control: The Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX features three pair of 4.0-volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Subwoofer). The unit's front and rear preamp output can be faded (front/rear), while the subwoofer preamp output is non-fading. The Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX lets you adjust the subwoofer preamp output's phase (normal/reverse) and volume (+6 to -24).

    Crossovers: The AVIC-8200NEX employs high pass and low pass crossovers to tailor the head unit to your connected speakers.

    • HPF: The head unit's variable 6/12/18db per octave high pass filter only allows frequencies higher than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125, 160, or 200Hz) to your front and rear speakers through the unit's speaker-level or line-level outputs.
    • LPF: The subwoofer preamp output features a 6, 12, or 18dB/octave low pass filter so only frequencies lower than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125, 160, or 200Hz) are output to your connected subwoofer.

    EEQ (Easy EQ) w/ 13-Band Graphic EQ: There are seven stored equalizer curves which you can easily recall at any time. You can choose from - Powerful, Natural, Vocal, Super Bass, Flat, Custom 1, or Custom 2. The Custom 1 and Custom 2 EQ modes allow you to manually adjust the level (+/- 12dB) of each band of the head unit's 13-band graphic equalizer (50, 80, 125, 200, 315, 500, 800, 1.25k, 2k, 3.15k, 5k, 8k, and 12.5k Hz).

    Auto EQ (Optional): The auto-equalizer automatically measures your car's interior acoustic characteristics, and then creates an auto-equalizer curve base on that information. The Pioneer CD-MC20 Auto-EQ microphone (, sold separately) is required to use this function. The Pioneer CD-MC20 Auto-EQ microphone plugs into your compatible Pioneer A/V receiver's rear-panel AUX 3.5mm input. The Auto-EQ microphone should be placed in the center of your vehicle's driver seat headrest facing forward for EQ measurement.

    Audio Settings: The head unit provides further sound adjustments for your car audio system.

    • Listening Position & Time Alignment: For a better sound-stage you can select your optimal listening position. You can choose from All, Front Left, Front Right, or Front. You can also select to manually fine tune the sound stage, using Digital Time Alignment (DTA) by selecting the distance (0-200") for each individual speaker in the vehicle compared to your listening position.
    • Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. When the Advanced Sound Retriever is on, the high frequency range is compensated to match the frequency response curve to the original sound. There are two available levels of the Advanced Sound Retriever effect.
    • Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets you adjust the volume level of each source (AM, Pandora, iPod, Apps) to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Settings are based on the unit's FM volume level, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from -4 dB to +4 dB.

    MIXTRAX: MIXTRAX is an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a nonstop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects. Drawing from Pioneer's rich DJ heritage and our passion for music, MIXTRAX delivers a unique DJ infused listening experience to those in the car. MIXTRAX takes the music from a USB-connected iPod/iPhone or USB MSC device and plays it back with added transitions and effects, creating a virtual DJ inside the Pioneer receiver.

    Note: The MIXTRAX function does not work in AppRadio or AppRadioLive mode, with the Pandora App, for CarPlay or Android Auto, and with Bluetooth sources.

    Key Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation; this can be turned On or Off.

    AV + OEM Connectivity

    Dual AV Inputs: The Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX has dual AV inputs to connect two external audio/video sources. The head unit has a rear-panel 3.5mm minijack AV input for connecting a portable audio/video device. There is also a rear-panel composite video/stereo RCA AV input for connecting a video component such as a mobile TV tuner or game console.

    HDMI Input: In addition to AppRadio & AppRadiLive modes for iPhone and Android, the head unit's HDMI input can be used to connect almost any external mobile AV source with an HDMI output; such as a TV tuner, Blu-ray player, or game system. The HDMI input will provide video and audio playback. Your vehicle's parking brake will need to be engaged to view video on the receiver's screen. Playback functions will need to be controlled from your HDMI-connected device (not the Pioneer head unit).

    AV Output (w/ Dual Zone): The unit features a composite video jack and 3.5mm audio jack to output AV signals to an optional monitor and headphone system. You can simultaneously enjoy the same or different sources in the front and rear of your vehicle. The unit's dual zone AV output can be set to Mirror, DVD/CD, AV, USB-1/iPod, SD, or Off. The Mirror mode simply outputs the same audio/video signal (not including HDM, CarPlay, or Android Auto) which is playing on the head unit's touchscreen monitor to your connected rear monitor/headphone system.

    Note: USB/iPod 1 and SD cannot be selected for playback in the rear of the vehicle when CarPlay or Android Auto is active.

    Rear-View Camera Input: The AVIC-8200NEX is equipped with a composite video rear-view camera input for the addition of an optional backup camera (, sold separately). When the vehicle's transmission is put in reverse, the screen automatically switches to the rear view camera (violet/white wire of the harness must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching). Automatic video switching takes approximately 0.8 seconds. Additional rear-view camera features include:

    • Parking Assist Guidelines: The unit also provides four on-screen guidelines to assist you when backing up and parking your vehicle.
    • Trailer Towing: You can even select for the rear-view camera to stay on at all times, so you can keep an eye on the trailer you are towing.
    • Second Camera: In addition, you can turn the unit's AV input into a second camera input for adding a front camera (sold separately).
    Note: The rear view camera feature is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.

    iDatalink Serial Port: This Pioneer navigation receiver is compatible with the iDatalink Maestro RR (, sold separately); a web programmable module that will permit the aftermarket Pioneer receiver to work with select Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles that feature the factory SYNC system, select GM vehicles with factory OnStar, select Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep vehicles with U-Connect, select Volkswagens with factory digital amplifier, select Toyota/Scion vehicles, and select Fiat vehicles.

    • Retained Features: The Pioneer navigation receiver lets you retains select factory functions (retained features will vary by vehicle via the iDatalink Maestro RR. Retained proprietary factory systems can include Ford Sync, GM OnStar, and Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep U-Connect. Other retained factory features may include Steering Wheel Controls, Aux Input, USB Port, Hands-Free Bluetooth, Voice Commands, Satellite Radio, Secondary Display, and more.
    • Extra Features: In some installations, the iDatalink Maestro RR let you configure the Pioneer receiver's touchscreen monitor to operate interior climate controls and provides extra visual data; such as User Selectable Gauges, Vehicle Info (Tire Pressure/Battery Voltage/Check Engine Codes/Door Ajar Warning), and Visual Park Assist. These extra features will vary by vehicle.

    Note: The iDatalink Maestro RR is web programmable, which means you'll need to flash the iDatalink Maestro RR interface module with the correct firmware from . In addition to flashing the iDatalink Maestro RR module, you'll also need a (sold separately).

    To update the factory radio, all the usual reasons (GPS, Touch Screen, etc...) and because it's sweet. [ SCOTT Apr 19, 2017 ]
    Replacing a factory-installed Toyota radio for my 2016 Highlander. I wanted an upgrade and something that utilizes my iPhone capabilities to the utmost. After researching customer reviews for options, I was pleased to know that Crutchfield carried the product, and their Advisor, Trish, was excellent at helping me determine the installation components that will preserve the features I liked fro the old system and improve upon the base that I had. [ James Apr 13, 2017 ]
    positive reviews / top of the line product / I trust Pioneer [ Mike Apr 08, 2017 ]

    initially bought the kenwood dnx693s but hated the navigation along with other feature it offered. [ ross Feb 02, 2017 ]
    Way more features than Alpine [ Joseph Feb 02, 2017 ]
    This looks like a pretty awesome receiver. Just ordered and can't wait to see. There are so many options for this thing. Just make sure to keep in mind that the mirror link feature doesn't work with newer android devices. I learned that the hard way on another receiver that I had. I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Active and it doesn't work. I tried multiple settings, cables, and ports on the receiver. The Android Auto app does though but you just need to make sure that the works with android auto. [ Hurshel Jan 28, 2017 ]
    Well, the unit was highly rated by other users. Android auto is part of the feature set and I hear soon adding Waze support. There's an HDMI input so I should be able to add an on-board computer to the package. Also, very complete; ships with a GPS antenna and a mountable separate microphone for cell calls. Lastly, screen quality (the ability to read the display under most or all lighting conditions) was cited by many in their reviews. [ Leonard Jan 16, 2017 ]
    I did allot of research and believe this is the best available radio for my needs [ T Jan 03, 2017 ]
    I liked the features for the money. It was a close choice between the Alpine 957 and this unit. many have given this one higher ratings. The Pioneer had more features than the Alpine. [ Casey Jan 03, 2017 ]
    I choose the Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX because I have had pioneer in the past and never had any issues. this model had everything I wanted plus the overview states that the screen and be angled for best view to driver. That was what helped me decide over other Pioneer models. [ Zachory Dec 28, 2016 ]
    For my 2010 VW Jetta [ Carl Dec 19, 2016 ]
    Because it is the best pioneer has the offer [ Raul Nov 28, 2016 ]

    Hello Roger, I found the Clarion CC510 works well with this receiver. I have 3 of these cameras with 3 different receivers and none of them have let me down. Hope this helps! [ Michael May 25, 2017 ]
    I'm not certain. My Toyota Factory Camera works seamlessly. [ Matthew May 25, 2017 ]
    I don't know what the best camera would be, but I used a Brandmotion camera with a mount specific to my jeep and I have not had a single issue. [ Travis May 24, 2017 ]

    only if your car already has the sensor installed and that data goes to your car's computer. it can be read by the 8200NEX via the ODBII connection [ Jose May 19, 2017 ]
    Weather info is retrieved either via SiriusXM (which will automatically tune you to the traffic & weather station) or via the AVICsync app and any online/connected services you subscribe to via Pioneer. It does not use the car's built-in external thermometer. [ DangerMoose May 19, 2017 ]
    The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have.

    Thank you guys. I just got it tonight and it does not do fast charge quickcharge. It does however charge the phone. Me phones like the LG V10 and pixel that use USBC can charge much faster. I will try a USBC hub to see if that works but am content with the charging for now. [ tillithz Mar 28, 2017 ]
    I have a iPhone. I have drove across United States with it plugged in and it will charge and hold charge even using hot spot [ Brandon Mar 28, 2017 ]
    So, I cant speak for 'quick charge' but I have used this daily for months, and it consistently charges my iPhone 6. Not fast, but over the space of an hour or so, even under heavy use. [ Steven Mar 27, 2017 ]

    Yes it will. I have the iPhone 7 plus and it works. [ Robert Feb 14, 2017 ]
    Yes, it was made before the iPhone 7, but has since had a firmware updaye. Besides, it is apple car play that it supports. So if the 7 has Apple Carplay, your golden [ MICHAEL Feb 14, 2017 ]
    Yes the head unit does support the new iPhone 7 it was apart of the 1.04 firmware update released on February 2017 hope that helps [ Antonio Feb 13, 2017 ]
    Yes this unit will work with newer model cars that have the cameras on the side mirrors [ Antonio Feb 13, 2017 ]
    I know it has the backup camera and its much better than the factory one was. I am not sure what you mean by the turn signals [ Adam Feb 11, 2017 ]

    Yes It can support all your cameras [ Antonio Feb 13, 2017 ]

    It should be just the usb cable (make sure you ise the correct port!) and the software on the phone, unless you are talking about some kind of slingbox-style streaming, in which case I cant help you. [ Steven Jan 21, 2017 ]
    I'm not sure, you would have to lookup HERE Maps for pricing. That is the maker of the maps. If you haven't bought this yet, you might want to check out the kenwood. I have the AVIC 8200NEX since June 2016. It is full of good features but the firmware is full of bugs. I wish I hadn't bought this model. Mine is currently out for warranty repair at Pioneer. They make you pay for shipping too and I was quoted a 4 week turnaround. [ Jose Jan 13, 2017 ]
    Not sure about the built in Navigation,. But if you use Android auto or apple car play, the maps will not need updates. On Pioneer's site I am not seeing any updates to the NEX Nav. The BT models list them at $120. Again not needed if using with Android or Apple phones [ MICHAEL Jan 13, 2017 ]
    Try adjusting the base setting for the gain and loss [ Antonio Feb 13, 2017 ]
    Upgrade your car [ jared Dec 06, 2016 ]
    The pioneer mosfet transistors are the best out there...the problem with the hollow sound is the auto speaker locations and all the places sound waves are deflected take away a lot of frequencies low land will never get the low end frequencies like you do with a 15 inch woofer and its surface area....thumping base is not sound...low end frequencies are a wave and do not many small cars and speakers seem to think are sound....I went to a professional and asked their opinion and they said i would need to add another amp with a high quality subwoofer or more to fill in the frequencies... I have a professionally built home system.and would never give up my mossfett transistors for tubes or hybrids or the old technology found in levinson or all the rest of the manufacturers may have to make the custom addition to dazzle the ears without going deaf... [ james Dec 06, 2016 ]
    Pioneer (and other manufacturer's) generally release yearly map updates for their in-dash GPS units. Customers of the AVIC-8200NEX model are eligible to download the latest available map update free of charge during the first 45 days of operation (from the unit's first receipt of an active GPS signal). For more details or to discuss further, feel free to reach out to an Advisor directly by phone () or online chat. I hope that helps! [ Larry Nov 21, 2016 ] Staff
    Looking at the install manual and my own AVIC-8200NEX there is NO optical output on the unit. [ MICHAEL Oct 19, 2016 ]
    I'm not sure. currently my setup is Bluetooth for phone(galaxy s7 edge /audio and 2 amps with sub, which works pretty good. [ ceyon Oct 19, 2016 ]
    sorry don't know,,,I had 4 new speakers replace toyota door and back and had to have someone still use the toyota amp.... [ james Oct 19, 2016 ]
    Yes, this is what I do and it works great. CarPlay on USB on and an old 30GB 30 pin iPod connected to USB2 The Pioneer recognizes the iPod with full control on screen whether I'm using CarPLay or not. [ MICHAEL Oct 19, 2016 ]
    Per the installation guide, the USB lorts are specific - one is for iOS devices only and one is for Android only, and the instructions also indicate not to confuse them, so I am assuming that the answer to your question is no to two iOS devices but fine for one iOS and one Android. I have not tested this, fyi, so take it fornwhat it is worth. [ Steven Sep 19, 2016 ]
    I'm able to play my ipod on usb one and andriod auto on two. [ Richard A. Sep 19, 2016 ]
    I installed the AVIC 8200 NEX in my 2014 Mustang three months ago. I have not had any problems viewing the screen due to sunlight, or for any other reason. [ Thomas K. Sep 14, 2016 ]
    It's been fine for us so far. The only time it get's a little hard to see is if the screen is too dirty. We keep a pack of glasses wipes in the arm-rest to take care of it. [ Tim Sep 13, 2016 ]
    I've not had an issue with viewing the screen in daytime use. Screen seems to have anti-glare properties. That said, I find the colors and contrast in CarPlay Apple Maps to be very washed out and difficult to read at a glance. Garmin uses better color selections that are very readable. [ MICHAEL Sep 13, 2016 ]
    I haven't but I drive a jeep and the angle that it sits in the dash isn't extreme enough to cause huge glare or washout. I also have tinted windows. You could try an antiglare screen protector. Like an ipad one and cut it down to size. [ Jose Sep 13, 2016 ]
    No. Unless you get direct sunlight facing the screen as with any screen. [ james Sep 13, 2016 ]

    Yes as long as the factory microphone is a 2.5mm jack [ Antonio Feb 13, 2017 ]
    have not had it long enough to tell you...the fm and sirius are great [ james Jun 13, 2016 ]
    no but they can use the factory toyota backup camera....also the factory toyota speakers are next to impossible to disconnect if you put in nice speakers so i must find a way to remove them from the amplifier and only use the 2 front door speakers and the 2 rear speakers that had installed...things may be different on other cars...also had to install new sirius radio....steering wheel controls work fine with the crutch field adapter...good luck...the toyota factory radio and speakers are the the pioneer and make it it will be worth it...the mosfett transistors are the best things made to produce instantaneous pure sound ....better than tubes and better than mark levinson products [ james Jun 13, 2016 ]

    Reception is amazing in rule areas works great in the city's also [ Antonio Feb 13, 2017 ]
    the sound quality is better but I live in NYc so reception is not really an issue. Overall I don't think it was worth it. I have a honda accord 2013 [ ceyon May 10, 2016 ]
    I listen to our local NPR news station on am, and the reception is very good. I fought off an impulse to replace my mast antenna with a hidden antenna, which probably the main reason the am reception is very good. [ David May 07, 2016 ]
    You may be able to retain the factory SiriusXM tuner and antenna in your vehicle with the proper integration adapter. When you add the stereo to your online shopping cart, you will be prompted to add a package code of installation accessories for your specific vehicle. Each package code will have a checklist of factory features that will be retained or lost with that specific package. If you do not see a package code option that will retain the SiriusXM in your vehicle, you'll need to add the compatible aftermarket tuner package to get service with the new stereo: I hope that helps!

    The 8200NEX offers a number of convenience and functionality improvements to the 8100NEX model, including the ability to switch between Apple CarPlay and Android Auto devices automatically (when 2 phones are connected); GoogleT Now voice activation to compliment Siri Eyes Free; and an iDatalink Serial port which lets you tap into your vehicle's diagnostic port, so you can check out expanded functionality including gauges, climate controls, a distance sensor, and tire pressure monitor on the Pioneer's screen (when used with the iDatalink Maestro module--sold separately).
