After waiting for the ACH-8400 to finally release for about 4 months, I picked mine up from an amazon seller for 150 bucks less than other retailers were selling them for. Received the head unit about a week ago, installed it, and used it without a parking brake bypass for about 4 days. I found it a little upsetting the things you couldn't do without engaging the parking brake (twice), but once I received and installed the bypass the head units functionality opened up ten fold. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND INSTALLING A PARKING BRAKE BYPASS. While I don't encourage watching video or any other activity that could possibly impare your driving, I believe that some core functions should be able to be used without the parking brake engaged.

Screen Quality/Build: The 7''/16:9 800x400 VGA display looks crystal clear and some of the best I've ever seen on a in dash screen. Videos look nice and sharp. The anti-glare/smudge screen work well, but just like any of head unit direct sunlight will make it harder to view. However, the screen stays mostly free of smudges and fingerprints despite how much you will be touching the screen.

User Interface: The AVH-8400's UI is pretty sharp and snazzy. Almost everything you see can be customized and changed to your preference. Button color, text color, and even the background image can be changed. The UI responds fairly quickly when you are switching between functions, but can sometimes be a little wonky. The Pandora app needs to be launched through the phone before being used through the deck making you have to get your phone out to do so, but it's not that big of a deal. The bluetooth audio connects and disconnects very quickly, as well as has GREAT sound quality.

This review is for the new AVH-8400BH. It just came out in march. You also will want the CDIU201S Advanced App Mode USB Interface Cable. Also note: you need a new special parking break bypass, the old ones will not work, and i did not know that so i'm waiting for the one that will work with this.

______________________________

SO I purchased the 4400, but canceled it when i learned that the 8400 was coming out in march, which is the same but with double the resolution, and advanced app mode. worth the 200 bucks more to me at the time.

This thing Looks SHARP... really really eye catching, great display. I installed this thing last night, and only partially (didnt finish installing rear view camera, and parking break bypass), so I will give an updated review later.

Boot - boots up really fast, no issues there unlike the GPS models.
Interface - I actually found it quite responsive, the swiping gesture to go to the next screen even works well.
HD Radio - works great, great images etc.
Ipod - haven't used yet
Pandora - really neat - you can run it over blue tooth, but using the iphone/pod cable gives you control. It can be buggy... would turn off, or go in a loop of trying to launch pandora on your phone.
Advanced app mode - didnt get to use, parking break bypass not installed
rear view camera - didnt finish install.
Bluetooth - calls work great. also audio streams just fine.
DVD player - haven't used yet.

overall i'm excited for the unit, but i know the advanced app mode is going to disappoint me... and yes its expensive for something cheaper ones do well, but, the resolution is hard to beat.

I like the radio a lot and consider it to be an excellent choice unless you expect to be able to display video out from a iPhone 5. I used the video out feature with the mapping App GPS Drive MotionX on my iPhone 4. It no longer works with the iPhone 5 using the new Apple Lightning to 30-pin adapter.

Here is Pioneer's link to compatibility, it gives no expectation of future operation.

Please visit [...] for more information.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

Unit is malfunctioning so I called Pioneer about getting it fixed. They told me they DO NOT HONOR WARRANTY ON PIONEER PRODUCTS PURCHASED ON AMAZON AFTER NOVEMBER 2011. Wow! Am I screwed or what?

This is my review on the Pioneer AVH-P8400. Unfortunately, this is not really a positive purchase. I can honestly say I am pretty disappointed in Pioneer and this head unit. I am hoping Pioneer gets these issues straightened out and fixed with a firmware update.

First, the positive:
-This unit really sounded much better than my previous Pioneer Premier F90BT. There was a notable clarity once I switched to it.
-I can connect two ipods to it rather than just one.
-The G.U.I. was also very appealing.
-Not having a bunch of harnesses in the back of the unit was also a plus and made installation a lot easier.
-Most of the issues with the head unit appear to be software based, and hopefully will be fixed soon
-The screen has a very vivid and clear resolution. It is definitely one of the nicer screens I have seen.
-Very quick load up time. Unit is ready to go in seconds from turning the car on.

The Negative:
-The screen goes dead and does not respond to any touches intermittently. Considering so many features are controlled by touching the screen, this is a bad deal.
-If you're using an iphone, the iphone alert sound effects come though when listening to Pandora or the ipod feature from the iphone. Im not sure if it's a head unit issue or a iphone issue, but when driving to music this is annoying.
-The GPS apps are garbage. PERIOD.
-If you connect the iphone before the Bluetooth connects, it causes all sorts of problems. The Pandora feature does not work, you have to use AppRadio in order to hear Pandora, but AppRadio will also not function properly.
