About this app

Turn your car into a connected car with a compatible Pioneer in-dash multimedia receiver, a compatible Android smartphone, and this AppRadio app. With your Android device connected, you will be able to discover and install compatible Apps that are optimized for in-car use. You will be able to listen, view and control them directly from the large Pioneer touchscreen interface installed in your dashboard.

• For Pioneer products featuring AppRadio One or AppRadio Mode +

 » How to connect
Connection is made through a single USB cable, you can use the Pioneer CD-MU200 USB to micro USB cable or the USB cable that comes with your phone.

 » Compatibility
Depending on the Android phone you use, AppRadio One may not function well in its default setting.
Please change the AppRadioMode Sound System setting of your Pioneer product when you experience sound or image instability. Smartphone sound will then be played through your phone speaker instead of the AVH Car audio speakers, improving stability.

This app is useless. There are only a few available apps compatible with it and none of them work. I upgraded my firmware and assumed that maybe this app would finally work correctly so I tried it again. Still useless. The only navigation it offers is a $60 app that gives poor directions. I'll stick with google maps for navigation. As far as music, my bluetooth and the apps I use on my phone work just fine. This app is an embarrassment to Pioneer products. Shameful!

AppRadio is completely worthless and utterly useless. This app is a nuisance and pops up every time I connect my phone to the stereo. Even after deleting it I'm still pestered with a prompt to reinstall it. It's almost like it was designed in 1990 and is not compatible with anything modern. Totally disappointed in Pioneer's decision to use this as it's program.

This app is absolutely pointless. it has to be plugged up through the USB cable and It can't be ran in the background for most devices, and it just mirrors whats on the screen. so when I press the button to lock my phone it disappears from the in-Dash screen also. for all that I could use my phone instead of having the same thing displayed on another screen. I figure it would connect through bluetooth then I can put my phone down and solely control the features it have from the Dash.
