Pioneer has identified a connectivity issue between newer phones using USB Type-C (Nexus, Pixel, etc.) and Android media playback and control compatible Pioneer in-dash receivers when used with a non-certified or non-compliant USB Type-C cable or USB Type-C extension cable.
If you are experiencing this connectivity issue, we recommend directly connecting the Pioneer in-dash receiver to the phone using only a certified USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable, preferably under 3 ft. in length.
Note: Connecting the Pioneer in-dash receiver to the phone using Original Equipment (OE) USB ports, found in some vehicles, can produce connectivity issues and is not recommended.
