The Connected Car

With AppRadio Mode, Pioneer has taken the technology from our revolutionary, game-changing AppRadio and placed it in the AVIC-5201NEX so you can experience control of compatible apps directly on your dash! When connected to an iPhone 5 or newer, or compatible Android smartphone with the correct interface cable (sold separately) and loaded with Pioneer's free AppRadio application, you can enjoy full on-screen access and control of your contacts, calendar, maps, and more! The intuitive interface is formatted and designed specifically for safer in-vehicle operation.

AppRadioLIVE pulls content from many different sources and services which you likely already have an account with. All you have to do is download the FREE AppRadioLIVE app and sync your services. All you information saved on those accounts will be pulled into the AppRadioLIVE interface.

Note: iPhone 5 or newer compatibility requires the purchase of the CD-IH202 interface cable kit (sold separately), Apple® Lightning Digital AV adapter (sold separately), and Apple Lightning to USB cable (sold separately).

AppRadioLIVE

AppRadioLIVE simplifies your drive by combining the information you need during your commute into a single, simple to use interface. It’s YOUR digital lifestyle connected. It was specifically designed based on feedback from our current AppRadio customers and offers quick and easy access to personalized information needed in the in-vehicle environment including: Maps, Media, News and Calendar.

Hands-Free Calling and Audio Streaming

Stay safe and obey local hands-free laws with built-in Bluetooth (HFP). Easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the AVIC-5201NEX without having to go through complicated settings. When a registered Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units.

From hands-free calling, wireless audio streaming (A2DP) with artist, album, and song search, simple pairing, and control audio (AVRCP), Bluetooth® wireless technology has made life in the vehicle much more convenient. The AVIC-5201NEX with Bluetooth also includes better call quality reception using the new Wideband Speech Handsfree Profile 1.6. Nearly doubling the bandwidth of the frequency helps bring call quality similar to FM reception. Other features include the ability to browse music libraries on smartphones wirelessly.

A Better-Than-Ever Listening Experience

Pandora is personalized internet radio that is designed to help you discover new music that you'll love mixed in with music that you already know. With the AVIC-5201NEX, you can enjoy superior sound quality and full control of the Pandora experience in your car directly from the touchscreen display of the receiver. You are able to give tracks "thumbs up" or "thumbs down," bookmark a song so you can purchase it later, easily switch between your personalized radio stations, and view full track data and album art.

Compatible with Apple iOS, as well as Android devices that support the Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP). Simply download the free Pandora Radio app to your iPhone or Android device and connect to the AVIC-5201NEX and take your music to the next level.

Power of SIRI eyes Free

Users of an iPhone® with Siri can take advantage of Siri Eyes Free functionality. With a simple touch of the NEX touchscreen, Siri starts listening through the NEX unit's external microphone and answers your questions and requests over the vehicle's speakers, helping you keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.

Navigate with Confidence

The AVIC-5201NEX offers a comprehensive map database from HERE® covering the entire United States (including Alaska and Hawaii), Canada, and Puerto Rico, enabling users to route to millions of destinations including 7.9 million points-of-interest (POIs). As a component of the Naviextras feature, the AVIC-5201NEX ensures that you have the most recent map database available for this receiver at the time of purchase.

When streaming music, NEX even lets you browse and select the media stored on your smartphone using the AVRCP 1.4 profile.

Sound Quality For All

Your car and your music are as unique as you are. With a Pioneer NEX in-dash receiver, sound quality features like built-in Auto EQ and Time Alignment, 13-Band Graphic Equalizer with touch panel swipe settings and built-in high/low pass crossover with adjustable points and slopes provide you with the controls to tailor the listening experience to your vehicle and listening preferences. The CD-MC20 microphone is required for Auto EQ features and sold separately.

Your love of high-res audio does not need to stop at the front door. Now for the first time in an aftermarket car stereo, you can enjoy FLAC files in your vehicle without the need to convert. Pioneer's NEX in-dash receivers are the first in the industry to offer playback of files encoded as high-res FLAC up to 192kHz/24 bit and provide playback output at CD quality. With Pioneer, your high-res FLAC is no longer confined to your home hi-fi system - put your music on the move.

Caution: Read the operation manual as well as all instructions and cautions before use. Pay attention to the road, limit glances to the device, and do not use any feature if it cannot be operated both safely and legally in your location and environment. Distracted driving may result in serious injury, including death. Certain functions such as video playback and keyboard input are restricted through a parking brake interlock system.
