Pioneer is releasing a new double din head unit that integrates your iPhone, just like the BMW Apps, called Pioneer AppRadio. I have been waiting for something like this forever and even thought about trying to build something myself to market. I thought that if anyone was going to do it, it would be Pioneer.
The unit is set to go on sale June 22, with a price tag around $500 or less. Start saving! It has an 800 x 400 6.1-inch capacitive multitouch display that lets you hook up your iPhone or iPod Touch (I imagine iPad as well) via Bluetooth. Serveral popular apps will be available at the release including Pandora, Rdio, and Google Maps.
We have heard that there is no built in CD player, but why would you need that when you have an iPod App with all your music. It does however still have standard AM and FM radio. The device is firmware upgradeable so you will be able to get the latest updates and apps as soon as Pioneer releases them.
Please note that the above image is just a mockup and not the look of the actual unit. As soon as we get our hands on one we will have a full review up…
Here is the official press release:
