Fun, Customizeable Interface

Improved Interface

The AVH-P2300DVD features a fun and convenient touch user interface that's a breeze to navigate. Naturally tap, swipe, or drag for intuitive controls. A new user interface makes direct operation stress-free by eliminating complicated layered selection displays, so access to desired functions is smoother and simpler than ever. You can also choose between Full Operation Mode for more control, or a stripped-down Simple Mode with just the basics.

Direct Source Selection

Switch to another source simply by touching a desired source icon. You can access another targeted source instantly without defaulting back to the menu display.

Make It Your Own

Various customization and digital photo frame functions also make it easy to set up your receiver to your aesthetic preferences. Select among five (Blue/Red/Amber/Green/Violet) colors for the display and 112 different colors to match receiver illumination to the dash. With Dual Decode, the receiver can display JPEG images while it plays music from your USB device. With one touch of the Capture button, you can save a favorite JPEG image as a wallpaper to the receiver. You can customize controls too, creating shortcuts to access frequently used features in the menu display.

I just installed this unit in my boss's truck. He previously had a Pioneer AVIC-F900BT and had nothing but problems with it. This unit had much simpler wiring than the AVIC and installed very easily and quickly. All connections were labeled well on the back of the unit. Initial setup was very quick and easy as the menu interfaces are very easy to use. The screen is very bright and clear, and DVD's play extremely fast and look amazing for a 5.8" screen.

Overall, I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a inexpensive, yet quality DVD/CD player.

Note- Although Pioneer would not be happy with me saying this, the parking brake lock out for DVD's was easy to wire around. You just need a simple 4 pole 12V relay and you are ready to play DVD's while driving. If you need information on how to do the wire around, just check out the YouTube videos.....

Without writing too many words i'd have to say i love this unit in my car, I drive a Pontiac G6, 2006 and the manufacture radio stopped playing and i had to replace it for about the same price for a new one of these, and i believe i made the excellent choice of buying this one. So far everything about it is great, does all it says and installation was 30mins tops. improved sound system for real and love playing movies while driving. the only thing is that i can't watch the videos in my iPod when i connect it to this unit. you'll need an extra cable from what i understand, for that to work. and yes my iPod is compact-able with the unit and i have my iPod set to allow an external video output. All-in-all i love this unit and u sure will. Need pics? write me and I'll post them.

Verified Purchase
I installed this unit in my 2004 Silverado. It fit perfectly and installed with no problems. I recommend you purchase an antenna extension and a wire harness designed for your vehicle. I have installed numerous head units over the years and this one was as simple as any other brand or style I have dealt with. All in all the set up and installation took about 40 minutes. The owners and installation manual lack a detailed sketch of what each colored wire goes to but if you purchase a wire harness adapter for your vehicle the color codes are universal and you simple match color to color and stripe to stripe. With the proper hardware this unit is very simple to install, even for someone with no experience so don't waste your money on having a shop install it. Just do the research ahead of time to see how to disassemble your dash, remove the old radio, and what installation kit you need for your vehicle. is a great reference source. The will tell you exactly what you need to install any after-market audio product in you ride.

I am still learning about this radio but so far I have no complaints. The DVD player works great and the play function can be easily bypassed with a relay switch so you can play movies without the parking brake being engaged. I searched youtube for instructions on how to do this. The unit has a number of preset equalizer settings as well as three custom setting you can program yourself. The unit allows you to turn your sub woofer on and off as you please. This is very handy if you don't want a lot of bass while watching movies.
The touchscreen response time is very fast and all in all the button layout is fairly simple to navigate and the icons are easily interpreted so even without title to tell you exactly where they lead it is easy to understand what they represent.

I am very pleased with this purchase and would buy it again if I had the choice.

This is a good head unit but I've got some pretty big design problems.


Good picture on DVD playback

Looks good in the dash - nice "high end" feel

Good price

Supports SD cards


No remote control

Touch screen is tough to use while driving

Flat volume and scan buttons are tough to find while driving

Constantly displays "No information available" in FM mode

Screen is nearly invisible in bright sunlight

Screen is nearly invisible with polarized sunglasses in any light condition

Connection for ipod is on the front instead of on the back

We'll start with the pros. DVD playback looks nice, the unit looks nice and it was cheap, under three hundred bucks. Not much need for explanation on these.

Now for the cons. A high end stereo that doesn't come with a remote control? I've had lots of head units over the last 15 years and this is the first time in 15 years that I haven't had a remote. The unit is programmed to accept a remote but it's $40 and only controls volume, source and next pre-set radio station or next track on SD or ipod. The remote has lots of other features it's supposed to work with but on this head unit, that's all that'll work.

Touch screens. Do some serious thinking before you make this decision. The touch screen is a total gimmick - real buttons are so much nicer to use. With a touch screen there's no such thing as finding a button without taking your eyes off the road. Every time you want to do anything you've got to stop and look down at the stereo.
