Pioneer Double Din 7-inch Touch Screen
The Pioneer’s AVH-P4300 DVD is an all-in-one replacement for a full-featured factory-installed seven-inch touchscreen display radio at a far more reasonable cost. Without a doubt, this double din display presents the very same, if not more functionality than a lot of factory-installed systems that one can buy.
For instance, it offers not only a sensitive radio receiver but also a high-resolution WQVGA 480 by 240 display. That resolution is exactly the very same as one will find in a Honda or a Toyota in-dash display system.
There is an output jack in the back to activate rear-seat displays and headphones with the dash-mounted management head so that one can play DVDs or CDs on the rear screens. And at the very same time, one is listening to iPod or iPhone/Pandora content material in the front seat. It is a real multitasking radio thanks to microprocessor circuitry that gives the AVH-P4300 some intelligence.
The iPod/iPhone interface is built into the radio’s USB interface. When one inserts the iPod adapter cable into the integrated USB port, the receiver enables a full entry to an iPod on a multi-line display. This allows you to scroll forward, backward or search via a playlist for any songs you would like.
Since it’s Pandora-ready, the only item one needs to add to one’s iPhone is the Pandora app and the AVH-P4300DVD will support it. Interestingly, when using that feature on display, touching an icon will let a person choose different kinds of options like Bluetooth, hands-free dialing and phoning with the proper add-on installed. The very same is true for GPS/Navigation and Satellite Radio.
For instance, the AVH-P4300DVD brings one full iPod/iPhone management, but also, via the very same port, enables one to download MP3, WMA or AAC audio files to a thumb drive. When inserted, the circuitry of the AVH-P4300 reclaims the upper range frequencies that were stripped off so that the data can be compressed. There is also mid-range emphasis mapped to this double din so that the audio is enhanced.
The AVH-P4300DVD also recognizes the following video specifications, JPEG and DivX so that one can also download and display slideshows that play along with the music or, if one wants to, one can just capture one image and use it as the wallpaper for the 7-inch LCD touchscreen.
Compatibility continues as the AVH-P4300DVD is compatible with DVD+R/RW Discs, CD-R/RW discs, and VCD. Mixed with the three double-DIN outputs, you can not only interface other Pioneer selections, but you can also set it up to act as the management head for a rear entertainment center. It will split rear screens and headphones so those passengers in the back can watch DVDs and those in front can use the NAV/GPS or Pandora.
Audio output at peak is 50W by four channels for a total of 200 watts, which is more than sufficient for most cars. Having said that, if one wants to install a separate high-powered amplifier or an enormous subwoofer in the rear, this unit has three high-voltage pre-emphasized RCA outputs.
A genuinely nice feature is the audio versatility of the intelligent equalization system used by the AVH-P4300. Vehicles are notoriously bad environments in which to listen to music. There are too many surfaces inside a vehicle that can reflect or bounce the sound making it out of phase and triggering distortion. And, then there is the upholstery which can absorb sound, no matter where the speakers are
Different equalization schemes are used to custom-tailor the sound in your car. But perhaps its most vital feature is its Automobile Equalization system which, employing an optional microphone provided as an add-on by Pioneer, monitors the return of the sound to the management head and then immediately adjusts the equalizer to optimize it from the source.
The AVH-P4300DVD was made to install directly into the in-dash location that most auto suppliers place in the blank spot of the center dash-mounted console.
