MVH-P8200 Features

Smart Interface for Quick Access
Pioneer's new user interface has a minimal yet powerful design, and scales to accommodate modern media sources easily. Tailor it to your own preferences with the customizable home menu, putting your favorite features right at your fingertips.

USB Input / SD Memory Card Slot
Connect USB thumb drives or other devices and enjoy playback of your digital audio and video files. Ditto for SD memory cards. This makes it a breeze to quickly grab some media from your computer before a big road trip, and enjoy hours of entertainment on the road.

iPod Direct Control (CD-IU50V required)
Connect your iPod directly and experience exceptional sound quality while easily navigating through music, videos and album art on the AVH-P5200BT's screen. Say goodbye to the annoying static of FM transmitters and other iPod half-solutions.

Simple Search for iPod lets you quickly search your iPod/iPhone with alphabetical search by Song, Artist, Album or Genre categories.

MP3/WMA/AAC Playback
Play back three of the most popular digital audio formats: MP3, WMA, and AAC. The MVH-8200's screen displays track info, and makes navigating directories/folders a breeze.

Video/JPEG Playback for Non-Stop Entertainment
The MVH-8200 features a three-inch color display designed to take full advantage of all of your media. Play music videos and more from your iPod/iPhone, or from SD memory cards/USB devices. The MVH-8200 can decode Divx (AVI or DIVX extensions) video. You can even display JPEG photos using the Digital Photo Frame feature.

Auto EQ
Automatically tailors acoustics by fine-tuning frequency bandwidths plus front/rear speaker digital parametric equalization. Result: smooth sound full of subtle nuance and clarity. Requires optional CD-MC20 microphone.

Customize Your Colors
The MVH-P8200 will accommodate your taste or mood. Select from six colors (blue/violet/red/amber/green/white) for the display, and 112 colors for key panel illumination.

Connect, Tag, and Download
Have you ever heard a great song on the radio, but couldn't remember what it was called or who sang it when you went to go look for it later? Now you don't have to worry about missing out on great music. iTunes Tagging gives you the power to "tag" all of your favorite songs without having to scramble for a piece of scrap paper in the car, then later preview or purchase music at iTunes Music Store. Works with stations transmitting RDS data.

Bring Your Music to Life with Advanced Sound Retriever
This year you can hear the detail, warmth, and clarity the way the artist intended it, from all of the highly compressed MP3, WMA and AAC files playing on your CD player. By restoring data that tends to get lost in the digital compression process, we can make your music sound close to CD quality.

Supertuner IIID AM/FM Tuner
Pioneer's legendary Supertuner IIID combines the best of digital and analog tuner technologies to reduce distortion to bring you exceptional FM and AM performance. If you live in an area where reception is weak, you'll hear a big improvement in signal strength. And when you're near tall buildings, Supertuner IIID reduces the effect of multi-path noise, which occurs when the signal is reflecting off of the buildings.

Always have your favorite stations at hand with 18 FM and 6 AM user presets. And when you're somewhere new, let the tuner do the work for you by activating the Best Stations Memory (BSM) function. The tuner will seek out the 6 strongest stations in the area and set them into the tuner presets.

MOSFET 50W x4 Amplifier for the Power Hungry
Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, delivering power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. And that doesn't just mean a boost in volume: it means that your music will be cleaner at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. Clean, efficient power that will rock your vehicle.

For those who'd like a bit more power, three 4V RCA preamp outputs are also included for system expansion (front/rear/sub).

i wrote this review for the Pioneer MVH-P8200BT which is the exact same product but with built in bluetooth. i edited out any bluetooth mentions, so everything else here applies.

* it looks nice
* it sounds nice (multiple audio options: full eq, bass boost, low pass filter etc)

here are the cons:

while it's refreshing to have a nice clean sparse interface in a car audio system, inside it's unnecessarily complex with navigating media. like a nokia phone, it seems the software was an designed by hardware guys who treated it as an afterthought.

* you really need to hit dead center of the dial to hit the center button. it's too often that i end up selecting left or right because i was a bit off.

* while there is a way to 'bookmark' certain menu options in a custom quick-shortcut menu, it's not as quick as it should be. you still need a button press, a knob turn, and another button press to access the menu. it would have been so much helpful if there was a dedicated shortcut menu button.

* when browsing an SD card or a USB drive, you can only browse one type of media (music, video, audio) at a time. if you want to switch media it's a button press, several knob turns to the bottom of the menu, another button press to the AV mode, where you can switch to video, music, or pictures.

* i used this with the external HD radio unit (GEX-P20HD). it works fine, and the reception is great. unfortunately for some bizarre reason only one line of radio id text shows up at one time. to show more information you'll have to (you guessed it), button press, knob turns to the display menu, button press, then select 'artist' or 'song' or no text. why do i have to do all that just to find out the artist or the title?

-Sleek, clean interface
-Plays music, video, and images
-Great sound
-Great customization (appearance and sound)

-No support for artwork on USB devices (save the iPod)
-Needs ridges on side of knob for easier grip
-Sometimes the knob can be hard to push straight in

Overall, I'm happy with this unit. The installation was pretty straightforward. It's easily one of the more customizable units on the market. You can adjust the background, screen color, button color, 8 different EQ settings, including using the 5 that they give you already.
One thing that bugs me is that it doesn't support artwork out of a USB device. It'll display artwork from an iPod but not a USB device. For being a media-centric device, this should be a big embarrassment for Pioneer. I was sorely disappointed when it wouldn't work, especially since all of my music is properly tagged with ID3 tags.

The second problem is lack of an HD radio. This is a hefty price to pay for a radio where they saved money by taking the CD player out.
For those reasons, I gave it a 4 out of 5.

Otherwise it's a pretty nice unit that definitely stands apart from the rest. The clean look along with the ability to play music, videos, and photos from USB devices OR the SD card is quite nice. The multi-control knob is actually quite nice and makes for easy adjustment of many settings. And once you get a hang of the home list, operating this is a piece of cake.

There's a reason I stick with Pioneer and this unit proves why. The sound quality is unparalleled. I have no problem recommending this unit.

Edit: One other thing that I want to mention is that other than the standard guidelines (so many folders, so many files, etc.

Title says it all. The rotary commander is precise and if you don't feel the joystick it is no fun. If you do, you can not by a better radio for the money....

Specs. are right there and on mark; it has done everything I've wanted it to do and has neat ipod shuffle options. You can use your standard ipod cable directly in to the faceplate USB connection. also Pick out your favorite menu options and put them a side click away. Clean looks, fun EQ, LED mood settings. Looks soo clean in dark interior cars, uncluttered sleek deep shine you just want in you dash!

no ones' perfect...not a big fan that the screen never turns completely off, until the is car off. Hasn't drained my battery tho. I would just like to turn the screen off when im not using it. slight learning curve for non tech savvy people.

Short and Sweet

This unit is just plain weird. I've been using Pioneer head units for years, they are solid, reasonably priced, and sound really good usually. This unit had plenty of promise.... A large clear screen (for my middle aged eyes), no CD player (which I haven't used in years), 2 methods of digital media (USB stick and SD card) and all the usual Pioneer goodness in audio control. Well, its just not there. Almost, but just not.

The good:

Audio quality is vintage Pioneer. Actually, even better than my past several receivers from them (FH-P8000BT, DEH4200-UB), as the equalizer is far more sensitive, and the Sound Retriever is getting more refined. Also, the seat preference (where you sit most of the time) is really useful, as it alters the center of the audio balance.

The screen is nice and bright, and the characters are clear. I can read everything on it with a quick glance away from the road.

The Bad:

As others have pointed out, navigating the unit is simply AWFUL. Trying to find songs is just plain bizarre. The wheel on the unit is imprecise to say the least, and you need to use it All THE TIME. Sometimes, it works, other times, not only does it not select you song, but it punts you into some menus you never knew existed.

File naming is a total mystery. No matter how I format the file names, they are NEVER in proper order, whether I use track numbering or not. Just annoying as all heck. The file naming that all other Pioneer head units seem to work fine with does NOT work with this unit.

Also as others have mentioned, the remote is useless. On the other Pioneer units I've had in the past few years, the remote was a delight. Here it is the same identical remote, but it does NOTHING!
