Fun, Customizeable Interface

Improved Interface

The AVH-P4300DVD 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 or SD memory card. 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.

See the Big Picture

The AVH-P4300DVD boasts a brilliant 7-inch widescreen color touchscreen display, with WQVGA (480x240) resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio, for easy navigation of features and a serious foundation for your entertainment.

Connectivity and Versatility

Versatile Media Playback

Play back your favorite CDs and DVDs, along with various digital files: MP3/WMA/AAC audio, DivX/DVD/VCD video, and JPEG images.

USB Port/SD Card Slot

Connect a USB thumb drive loaded with files, and enjoy playback of files from your digital library. Or do the same with an SD Card, for an even more portable option.

iPod Direct Control

Connect your iPod/iPhone and enjoy music directly from your device, with complete control of unit functions right from the receiver. If you'd prefer, switch over to "application mode" to control from the iPod/iPhone itself.

Pandora Integration

Fans of the Internet music service Pandora, rejoice! The AVH-P4300DVD, thanks to Pioneer's new Pandora Ready feature, can give you direct control of Pandora through your iPhone. Launch Pandora on your connected iPhone, and you'll be able to experience Pandora through your receiver, complete with bookmarking and thumbs up/down buttons.

Audio/Video Performance

Dual-Zone Audio/Video

This receiver allows rear seat passengers to enjoy DVD or CD content via additional rear screens and headphones, even while the front passenger and driver operate navigation or listen to audio from other sources simultaneously.

Auto EQ

It's difficult to reproduce music well in a car, because speaker positioning is constrained by interior space and other conditions. These limitations can lead to sound phase distortion, as well as speaker sound reflection against glass and absorption by dashboard and seats. Pioneer's unique Auto EQ feature tailors specific musical characteristics according to your taste, and uses a microphone (the optional CD-M20) to monitor and analyze acoustics, then automatically fine-tunes all frequency bandwidths using front and rear speaker digital parametric equalization. It's similar to the setup feature on many home theaters, and will let you dial things in just right for your vehicle.

Sonic Center Control

More audio obsessiveness from Pioneer--unless a listener is perfectly centered in a car cabin, sound heard from some speakers will lag compared to the sound heard from other speakers. This result in unfocused soundstage and instable frequency characteristics. Sonic Center Control remedies this by adjusting frequency phase and acoustic characteristics by up to 15 steps, providing a clearer, focused soundstage.

Advanced Sound Retreiver

Hear the detail, warmth, and clarity that the artist originally wanted you to hear from compressed MP3, WMA and AAC files stored on disc, USB device, iPod/iPhone, and portable media players. Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever technology restores data (especially high-frequency data) that tends to get lost in the digital compression process.

Eight-Band EQ

With Pioneer's eight-band graphic equalizer, you can customize the equalization levels to best match the acoustics of your car.

MOSFET Amplification

The AVH-P4300DVD cranks out 4 channels of 50 Watts with efficient MOSFET amplification, and offers three 4V RCA preamp outputs for growing your system.

Bluetooth Ready

Add Pioneer's CD-BTB200 Bluetooth adapter to allow for safe, simple, hands-free calling and receiving with most Bluetooth wireless-enabled cell phones. Just touch the cell phone icon in the receiver display for direct access to the Bluetooth display. Special symbols will light up when a Bluetooth connection is established, and pairing is is easy and automatic. 10-key dialing via touchscreen is also now possible on Pioneer receivers.

Room to Grow

The AVH-P4300DVD gives you a great featureset to begin with, but it's ready to expand to suit your needs. You can add Bluetooth as mentioned above, along with GPS navigation, satellite radio, HD radio, and a rear-view camera in a snap. Start out big, go bigger.

NOTE that this review is for both the PIONEER AVH-P4300 and Pioneer CD-BTB200BT as I feel they are both a required for most users with phones; especially IPhones.
Everyone wants to hear how great this head unit is; as it really is, and some want to know what flaws it might have; which it has. Keep in mind this is a personal review; my opinion. Let me start by asking Pioneer...what is the sense of having such great iPhone and iPod compatibility and functionality without having the most basic IPhone functionality? Making and receiving calls with seamless music interruption, and basic phonebook access). The PIONEER AVH-P4300 DVD is advertised with Bluetooth compatibility with the Pioneer CD-BTB200BT Bluetooth module, While it may be "compatible", there is a real lack of integration with the PIONEER AVH-P4300 DVD and CD-BTB200BT Bluetooth unit.

While very basic, it works for incoming and outgoing calls most of the time.
Sound quality from Bluetooth is very good.

INTERNAL PROGRAMMING / Integration / Sound Quality:
* The screen is responsive to touch with very little lag.
* Great navigation in music / video and all menus for settings.
* Good IPOD control
* APP Mode
* Pandora integration
* Auto EQ (setup microphone required)
* 5-band EQ
* Able to output to a second screen using two different sources or both screens to one source
* Sounds very good with the help of Auto EQ and other settings or 5 band graphic EQ.
* Excellent soundstage and presence when the Auto EQ is used.
* Good integration with IPOD / IPhone 4.

Just received this and am extremely pleased. In the past, I had bought $1000+ in-dash nav systems for my cars. I've always been a fan of Pioneer's UI so when I heard about the iPhone/Pandora/MotionX GPS functionality I was immediately sold. Why spend an extra $500+ on a nav equipped unit when your smartphone already has it built in? You need to charge your phone while in the car anyway. In addition, I actually find it much easier to input what I'm looking for on my phone so it's a win/win all around

The othe reviewer stated his frustration with the lack of bluetooth. Does he knows there are othe units with this built in? Either way, I feel it's a waste. Unless you've got a luxury car with great sound insulation, nobody's going to hear you. I've had 2 other pioneer BT equipped units (on a Mazda and Honda) and never used it. Always reverted to the headset instead. I supposed it would be nice to see this information on the screen... then again, that's not really a deal-breaker to me. Also, BT audio is pointless (when you have an ipod cable) since the quality isn't quite as good so... again, BT just isn't necessary.

Last but not least... My only knock on this unit is the lack of a physical knob. JVC makes some similar units but all of them have the USB jack on the front. This is a deal-breaker for me and should be for you too. Trust me when I say... you do not want to plug your cable into the front. It's relatively ok for an aux cable since those aren't meant to stay in permanently. iPhone cables, on the other hand, are. Be sure to get one with a USB jack on the back.

I've had mine for a little over a week, and it's perfect. It makes my Mustang look a lot nicer. I didn't plan on getting the navigational system until later, as I normally know where I'm going anyway (work + home).

The screen is really nice, and doesn't look as thought it will attrack fingerprints. The display is bright enough during the day time, which was something I was worried about. The touch controls work fine. The Divx works great. I have a ton of shows on Divx and they loaded just fine. DVDs play perfect, and load fast. The music shuffles music from all folders on a disc. My last player only shuffled music within a folder, so this was a nice improvement.

I haven't tried the SD card, but I plan on loading a 32GB full of music and just keeping those songs in my car as a permanant play list.

There's only a few things I didn't like, but it's not a huge deal and nothing "wrong" with the product. The album art only displays on Pandora/iPod devices. I have all of my MP3s setup with album art and none of my MP3's art on my burned DVD worked. Along with that is an issue with scrolling text, which is not a feature of this product. So if you're listening to a band called "The Presidents of the United States of America" (good band, btw), you will only see something like "The Presidents of t" as it cuts the text off. It would have been nice to see scrolling text.

The last complaint I have about this unit is the lack of MP4 support without an iPod. Most of the music videos I have are in MP4 format. If you are planning on buying this unit and have a ton of music videos to burn in this format, I'd suggest just using DivX's own Convertor software (just check their website and buy the Pro for unlimited converts). It manages to keep things at a low file size while maintaining near-same quality video/audio. It's also fast. I managed to convert over 45 music videos in under an hour.

Overall, a great DVD head unit that looks really good.
