About this app

Pioneer’s Advanced Remote Control (Pioneer ARC) app converts your Android smartphone* into a powerful touchscreen remote control, which allows you to control and customize your compatible Pioneer car stereo.
Pioneer ARC lets you browse your favorite music, switch sources (FM tuner, Bluetooth Audio, etc), launch 3rd party apps, customize the illumination colors and audio settings of your Pioneer system.

Compatible features vary by model.

*The Pioneer ARC app is compatible with Android smartphones running 4.1 and above.

For USB connections
This function is compatible with a phone that runs Android 4.1 up to 7.1.2 and also supports AOA (Android Open Accessory) 2.0, but the compatibility depends on the smartphone.
Some Android devices connected via AOA 2.0 may not work properly or emit sounds due to their own software design, regardless of the OS version.

When trying to use the USB connect feature, the app sends non stop push notifications that essentially disable my phone. If I open the app, it fails to connect and reboots the app repeatedly forever. The pioneer stereo works great as a CD player and radio, but this app has been unusable on every phone I've had. Galaxy 7 though the Note 10+

My stereo doesn't have blue tooth so I was excited when I could use the USB port to read music. I don't want to have my phone in my hand and Change songs. It was great changing it on the stereo. Then I kept hearing tiny cut interruptions every 5-8 seconds . So I thought maybe it was reading the music wrong. I installed the app hoping it would fix this issue. Then it disabled changing the music on the deck. WTH.now back to aux cable.this app should not even be an option. It totally sucks . The whole point is to not use your phone while driving. Trying to reinvent the wheel or some ish

I can say without any doubt this app is useless. I have played with all settings, multiple phones and cables on each. I have gone over the settings more than once and nothing I do allows the audio from spotify to play through the car speakers. The company has not replied to many of the comments and seems uninterested in this useless software. If you allow this app as the default it will continue to run and you cannot end task. Don't waste your time.
