AVH-P4200DVD Features

Seven-Inch Touchscreen Display
The AVH-P4200DVD boasts a seven-inch TFT LCD touchscreen display with 1440 x 234 pixel resolution. Navigating your media and system settings from the touchscreen is a breeze thanks to intuitive touch controls and customizable menus. Tap, Swipe or Drag--exactly the way you expect a touchscreen device to work.

Versatile Multimedia Playback
Enjoy your favorite DVDs while parked with the full-featured DVD player, or add a back seat screen for your passengers to watch as you drive. The AVH-P4200DVD will play DVDs, DVD-Rs, Video CDs and even DivX files burnt to CD or DVD (or from a USB device). You can also use the rear A/V input to attach external devices like video game systems.

As for music, you can enjoy your favorite CDs, or listen to MP3/WMA/AAC files from either CD/DVD data discs or a USB device.

USB Input / SD Memory Card Slot
Connect USB thumb drives or other devices and enjoy playback of your digital audio files or DivX video. 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-P4200DVD's screen. Say goodbye to the annoying static of FM transmitters and other iPod half-solutions.

Advanced Sound Retriever
Hear the detail, warmth and clarity, the way the artist intended it, from all of your highly compressed MP3, WMA and AAC files stored on USB memory device, iPod and portable digital players. By restoring data (especially higher frequencies) that tend to get lost in the digital compression process, Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever technology enhances audio reproduction nearly all the way up to 20 kHz frequencies.

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.

Dial in Your Sound
Use and customize EQ curves, adjust the eight-band parametric equalizer, or change loudness and bass boost settings to get the perfect sound.

AUX-In Connection
Use the built-in AUX input for connecting any digital portable player and other external auxiliary devices. For extra-convenient access, the AVH-P4200DVD has this A/V input on the front panel.

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).

Available Bluetooth Wireless Technology
Use the available CD-BTB200 Bluetooth Adapter and Bluetooth-enabled cellular phones for easy, safe, and hands-free operation, including talking via the headunit's microphone and your vehicle's speaker system. The system automatically mutes any other audio during incoming or outgoing calls.

Add the Power of Navigation
This receiver is ready to take direction with the optional AVIC-U220 navigation module, a sleek navigation unit that supports AVIC feeds, enabling you to create custom trips, as well as your own points of interest. The plug and play AVIC-U220 puts Pioneer's legendary AVIC navigation at your fingertips.

Rear View Camera Capability
Keep an eye on your backside using the optional Rear View Camera (ND-BC2 or ND-BC20PA): while you're in reverse the rear-view camera can be in full screen. An unit equipped with the optional rear-view camera adds a level of safety and assurance you can rely on. In addition to keeping you and your family safe, this feature also makes maneuvering in tight spaces easier.

Ready to Expand
The AVH-P4200DVD is also compatible with Pioneer's XM and Sirius satellite radio tuners, HD radio tuner, TV tuner, CD/DVD changers and more.

OK here is my review of the Pioneer AVH-P4200DVD. I bought it a few weeks ago and had it professionally installed in my 2009 Yukon XL. I wanted to give it some use before I wrote a review so I could give it an honest review. I know many people including myself use these reviews to make the deciding decision if they are undecided between a few different choices. I am not going to go into much detail around the interface options because the internet has plenty of info and videos already on that. I am going to tell more about how each of the modules work. So here we go.

Obviously I got the head unit, but I also got The Bluetooth module (CD-BTB200), the HD Radio Module (GEX-P20HD), The Sirius Satellite Radio module (CD-SB10 & SC-C1), Backup Camera (ND-BC4) and the IPod Touch/IPhone cable (CD-IU200V). Basically I got every possible add-on module, minus the navigation (AVIC-U220) which is not even out yet. I will go into each of the modules and explain.

Connecting your phone to the unit is pretty painless. Turn discovery mode on the phone and the unit immediately picks it up. Once the phone has been set up the first time, it is a breeze. The only thing that is needed, is the Bluetooth needs to be turned on, on the phone. The head unit automatically picks it up when it is close. It connects very fast, usually within a second or two. The factory Bluetooth would take around 30 seconds. The module comes with a microphone that I had mounted by my rear view mirror. The sound from the call comes out the cars speakers. Voice quality sounds great on both ends I have been told. Better than the one that came with the vehicle. The Bluetooth interaction between the unit and your phone is nothing special.

This deck hands down is FANTANSTIC!!! I bought the AVH-P4100DVD last year and loved it! When I saw that this deck was gonna be released, I had to buy it! I just installed it and it's AWESOME! The iPod functions are better than the previous model. I like the finger scrolling as well. Video play back is phenomenal! On the AVH-P4100DVD, the color contrast and quality wasn't all there. It was still a great deck, but on the AVH-P4200DVD, the picture quality, brightness, and contrast is PERFECT! This deck has so many options for you to expand as well. They even have the navigation expansion for it, where as the previous model didn't. Also with the iPod control, you have the option to watch video off of it. The picture quality on that as well has improved and is perfect. If I could rate this deck higher than a 5 star rating, I would. Only problem this has (AVH-P4100DVD had the same problem) is if the name of the file playing is too long, it cuts it off. It doesn't scroll it so you can read the whole thing. Also it doesn't allow you dual zone on just the deck. This means you can't listen to your iPod music while a DVD video is playing on the screen. If you have screens in the back of your car, then it will work. Other than those two minor things, this deck is a must! Pioneers AVH series are incredible. I have no doubt in my mind that they next decks coming out in the AVH line will be more incredible. As for the AVH-P4200DVD, GET IT if you can afford it. You won't be disappointed and you will find driving in your car more enjoyable with all the different functions you have at your fingertips.

I've had this head unit for about 6 months now. I had it professionally installed.
My complaints:
- Menus and fonts look a bit too blocky for my taste, as if it needs better resolution
- Loading DVDs (audio) and Flash Drives is slow
- Mp3 covers only show up if you're using an iPhone/iPod (no DVDs or Flash Drive)
- Song names are truncated
- HD radio is extra (Seriously Pionner? How greedy can you get)
- No Pandora support
- Will not support my older iPod (Photo iPod)
- My iPhone 4 ocassionally gets errors. It haven't figured out how to resolved them other than turn the car off for a few minutes and then start again.

This is a good unit but in some instance it reflects the lack of QC. If you install the GPS unit you will find that there is one word misspelled, not a big deal but it shows that they have not been careful, for a product that comes from a top notch company, supposedly. Also, when changing the time, one hour ahead or behind, it will not change it in the GPS display. Try discussing it with customer service to no avail otherwise it is a fairly nice unit worth the price. Remember, the time in your GPS will be different from the unit. Oh, almost forgot, the GPS unit is sold with the guarantee of getting an update upon purchase, well, guess what, the update is not even developed yet, according to Pioneer, they said to try again in May of this year, maybe by then.

Update: Do not bother buying and wasting your money on Bluetooth, since it is a separate module, it rarely works. I wish I could return it. Oh and the funny part is that the information book that comes with it has nothing to do with that particular unit, what a joke. It is the worst!! And another thing that is the worst is Pioneer cuatomer service, no help, they could care less about helping you or solving any types of issues. Mine is under warranty, it has some flaws with the touch screen. According to them, if you want to get it fixed, take the unit out, at your own cost and take it to a repair dealer. All the costs involved are your problem, they will no assist with a penny and to top it off, rude individuals!!!! Frankly no more Pioneer for me. I am sure there is a better company somewhere!!!!!!
