Smartphone compatibility that rules
I expect a lot from my smartphone, and I don’t want to expect any less when I’m in the car. Pioneer’s AVH-2440NEX DVD receiver offers what I want — nearly seamless integration with my phone, with easy access to navigation, music, podcasts, contacts and more. And you don’t have to be an iPhone® user like me — your Android™ will feel right at home too. Check out these options:
- Apple CarPlay — CarPlay is an iOS user’s dream. Plug in your iPhone and you’ll access a super user-friendly iOS styled interface with voice control that lets you quickly jump into your music, podcasts, messages, streaming music and more. CarPlay’s a no-brainer for me — it’s the safest and easiest way to use your iPhone in the car, hands down.
- Android Auto™ — Your media, nav, phone, apps, and more are organized in a simple, clean interface with voice control that gives Android users an easy way to hit the road.
- AppRadio Mode+ — Pioneer’s AppRadio Mode+ provides additional flexibility when your iPhone is attached, letting you tap into apps like Waze for navigation, and providing easy access to some video content through AppRadioLIVE.
“Pioneer gets high marks from me for ease of use, and this model keeps that tradition going.”
Intuitive, customizable interface
The AVH-24400NEX boasts a bright and crystal-clear VGA display with plenty of customization options. You can set your home screen to display your favorite sources, and then switch between them with just a single touch, letting you pay more attention to the road, and less to operating your stereo. Pioneer gets high marks from me for ease of use, and this model keeps that tradition going.
Spotify and Pandora® control
If you’re like me and use streaming services a lot, you’ll appreciate how you can control your Pandora and Spotify accounts from the receiver. Just connect your iPhone via USB or Bluetooth®, or pair up your Android with Bluetooth and you’re all set. You can even create new Pandora stations on the fly just by pressing a button.
Bluetooth wireless command
The AVH-2440NEX is ready to roll with hands-free calling with your compatible phone, plus the ability to wirelessly stream and control music. Plus, with your compatible iPhone, you can take advantage of Siri Eyes Free functionality, using your voice to place calls, select music, hear notifications, add reminders — even compose and listen to text messages.
The receiver’s LCD screen plays DVDs and other video content in bright, clear detail when you’re parked. You can keep your passengers entertained by sending video from the receiver to a rear-seat screen — that sure helps to minimize wars in the back seat. And you can play it safe when you throw it into reverse by plugging in a rear-view camera.
iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras
The AVH-2440NEX offers compatibility you won’t find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included). In a wide selection of vehicles, this module lets you keep factory features that you’d otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You’ll also be able to check out engine performance data and other vehicle info on the Pioneer’s screen. Once you’ve identified your vehicle, you’ll see the iDatalink module offered on the way to the Shopping Cart if it’s compatible.
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.
Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver’s Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone’s Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.
