another amazing product from pioneer, had this unit for 2 months in my car and list of funtions it has is exellent.
had the older sister to this for 2 years, which was the avh-5700dvd and that had me hooked on pioneer headunits. with the new headunit to can now plug your ipod direct to machine instead of the last time where you had to buy seperate ipod control box. this time the headunit has the ability to connet a usb memory stick as well for 2 sources of mp3 music.
headunit has a 7 inch flip out screen which is also touch screen and makes it really easy to look for your songs or use the dvd player, and you dont have to touch your ipod as its all on screen for you.
being pioneer there is other products that can be added to the headunit at an extra cost.... such as bluetooth and a tv tuner, but expect to pay a good deal for these.
was kinda annoyed with the bluetooth as i thought it would have had it built into the machine and did'nt really read a review on the headunit and would have known the machine did'nt have it in it.
if your buying this headunit make sure you have taken the standard stereo out of your car just make sure how much room you have at the back, as i have a skoda fabia and the room was very little and the pioneer wire loom is big and takes up a lot of room and i had trouble trying to get mine into the car.
also find that headunit has to be connected to your handbrake switch as its against the law to watch dvd's on the move and really you are better getting this headunit where a company can get it all fitted for you.
all in all this is a great dvd headunit with screen, very loud with standard speakers and the eq functions are great. also the screen has 5 colours and the buttons have 2 colours to help the headunit match the cars interior colours.
