More advanced than ever before, NEX features a responsive, powerful and intuitive touchscreen user interface that is easy to use and highly customizable. iPhone 4s or newer users can even control NEX and their smartphones using Siri Eyes Free mode. Clearly, NEX is designed specifically for today’s smartphone and tablet-driven lifestyle.
NEX provides nationwide mapping and turn-by-turn directions with 7.9 million points-of-interest (POIs) for destination such as restaurants, gas stations and ATMs.

Sync your compatible iOS, Android or MirrorLink smartphone with NEX for a truly connected experience, bringing many of your favorite apps right into the dashboard and letting you communicate using advanced high quality Bluetooth connectivity.

NEX is compatible with iOS, Android or MirrorLink® smartphones for a truly connected experience. In addition to playing numerous sources and file formats, Pioneer’s AppRadio® Mode allows you to bring many of your favorite apps right into the dashboard. 

All NEX models feature built-in Bluetooth® that enables both hands-free calling and wireless audio streaming. Including the latest Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.6) with wideband speech capability, NEX provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls. When streaming music, NEX even let’s you browse and select the media stored on your smartphone using the AVRCP 1.4 profile, a first for a Pioneer in-dash receiver.

Users of an iPhone 4s or newer device 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.

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.

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.

Expanding on Pioneer’s philosophy to enable consumers stay connected, MirrorLink opens the door to more smartphones that feature MirrorLink technology. MirrorLink gives you a custom interface so you can access your music, map services and your phone to make calls on-the-go, hands-free of course.

Keep The Party Going!

Keep the party going with MIXTRAX®, an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a nonstop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects.
