This December, Pioneer will launch new models in its most advanced multimedia range, AVH. The renewal concerns nearly all units and improvements are wide-ranging, including Spotify integration, new resistive touch technology and new advanced Bluetooth functions.



The technology race towards the future is incessant. Large brands are well aware that renewal must be an ongoing process; the current pace of evolution in multimedia is such that most devices become outdated within a few months of their lanch. For this reason, Pioneer has already presented to us the 2016 update to its AVH range, wich includes the most advanced multimedia units from its catalogue. The change with respect to previous models represent not only the immediate evolution of in-car technology but also trends that will be consolidated in the next few months


Higher quality resistive screens

The resistive touch interfaces are a new development, and Pioneer is deploying them in its latest AVH models. The interfaces are very accurate and offer a high level of responsiveness. The result is a superior user experience compared with traditionaltouch interfaces. AVH-X2800BT and AVH-X3800DAB are equipped with a 6.2" WVGA resistive touchscreen with a sharp display and improved usability, especially during night driving. AVH-X5800DAB has an extra large 7" WVGA screen. AVH-X7800BT, the only 1DIN model in the range, has a motorized 7"


 The new AVH range allows you to control two smartphones simultaneously


Music from Spotify

With the new AVH range from Pioneer, you can control the Spotify app stored in your smartphone (iPhone or Android), including all your playlists, directly from the touch interface. In addition, all models in the range include Pioneer's unique MIXTRAX technology, allowing you to combine your favourite tracks as you like and to add DJ effects and lighting effects synchronized with the speed and rhythm of the music.


Advanced Bluetooth

The new AVH models can connect to two smartphones via Bluetooth simultaneously. This means that they can connect to, for example, your work phone and your personal phone, or to the driver's phone and a passenger's phone at the same time. A button on the touch interface allows you to switch easily between devices or to select on which device to take an incoming call. Connected smartphones can also stream wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. This is made possible because the new range incorporates SR-Air sound retrieval technology that improves the quality of compressed audio files streamed over Bluetooth.

AppRadio USB mode

AppRadio USB Mode allows you to view and control various apps directly from the AVH touch interface in a convenient and safe manner. To get started, connect an iPhone or Android smartphone using a USB cable.


Superior audio quality

In addition to MP3, WMA, AAC and WAV files, the new AVH models can also play high-resolution FLAC files (maximum 24 bits / 48 kHz). Moreover, all models in the new range incorporate a powerful 4 x 50 watt MOSFET amplifier capable of reproducing the actual-scale dynamics of the most demanding tracks.
