First of the picture is very clear even on sunny days the screen still looks good WVGA display. I had mine bypassed so i can played music dvds while i drive. The gps fuctions well. I most use my iphone on it. Sound quality is amazing. It has truly delivered crisp clean sound and has a built in digital equalizer. I was going to purchase the Kenwood version of this but i found that this unit has a fast interface, meaning you hit a button on a screen and stuf happens immediatley like an iphone theres virtually no lag. Boot time is reasonable id say 15 sec for the screen but if you had music playing id say the musci on in 10 sec or so... You can also choose what color the LEDs are for the system. my car has orange leds on the odometer and main dash so this unit matches like its a factory install. theres more apps like pandora some few others that can be used on this unit. has call feature. very clear phone calls through my iphone. This thing has all the features of the popular appRadio but more. but the sheer speed of the interface and picture quality is what really sold me.. the unit is not pixelated at all. looks even better at dusk without all that sunlight glare. please note you must buy that iphone dock cord to get the full use of this unit if you have an iphone/ipod etc its like $30 on amazon
I kept my z130bt in my 2nd car, and installed the z140bh in my brand new car. So I, as a regular joe type, was able to analyze the performance of both units side by side. My conclusion...THE Z130BT IS BETTER THAN THE Z140BH.
First, I didn't notice any true processing speed increase. Maybe, and I mean maybe, there was just a little increase in the z140bh, but it was nothing that was clearly discernible.
Second, the sound quality didn't change. I got the same ranges and depth from both headunits, although the vocals on both units regarding AM sports talk radio leaves something to be desire. You have to really fumble with the EQ to get it right, but both units do at least allow come tinkering.
Third, there's no viable difference in the look of either unit. You can put them both together and you will not see a difference in hardware or screen presentation.
Fourth, maybe, and I mean maybe, the touchscreen on the z140bh was a bit more responsive. But again, if it is, it is nothing that clearly stands out.
Fifth, the z140bh shows a bit of love toward Android phones by allowing Pandora and Aha to be compatible, but if you are not into these apps (as I discovered I was not), then why bother?
Sixth, they do add Advance App Mode built into the z140bh, but unless you have an Iphone (no Android compatibility), you will not be able to use it.Read more ›
It is tough to review (and shop to buy) these units as most people don't have hands-on experience with multiple different kinds of units. I generally expected that this unit, along with most others from other manufacturers, would have some stupid little things with the user experience. Every car radio I've bought over the last 10 or 15 years seems to make me say "why the heck did they do this???" So when buying a unit, my goal was to find one that had the LEAST number of these strange design features.
These little nagging issues include stuff like showing "preset 1" and "preset 2" instead of the radio station numbers -- or letting you program a name for a station. I simply can't understand why Pioneer doesn't show the numbers for the station on the button where you change channels. There is ample room for this to be there. From what I've read, previous versions did show more info but for some reason they've removed this in this new unit.
Another nagging issue is that they don't make it easy to understand where a POI in the map is when you are searching for something! I know other units can show north/south/east/west arrows next to the entries but not this unit (I can understand there are some tricky things about doing that though). But they don't even show you the street number on the entries! So if you search, say, for a Starbucks -- and there are many results, you have no easy way to figure out which is most convenient!Read more ›
This HU is full featured but the menus are less than intuitive. Getting the AUX 2 port to work was far more difficult than it needed to be. The GPS is solid and I like the new voice stuff as it does not sound as mechanical. The Voice command mode should allow navigation input, but does not as the earlier model did. The voice system itself is one of the best I have used. Far better than Sync. My only complaint is after you enter a voice command it takes 15 seconds for it to stop listening. Would be nice if you could say "end" and then have it stop listening but that is only a minor annoyance.
The other minor annoyance is the fan. If sitting in the car with the motor off and the HU on, you hear the fan running. Seems the fan runs all the time.
Sound quality is excellent. There is a lot of control in this unit but finding it all takes patience.
I have used the NAV on several long trips. It works well. The multiple route colors can get confusing but I'm sure if you read the manual it explains them all. I need to try things on my own to understand them so I rarely read the manual unless I'm really stuck.
For the features you get and the price (since the 2013 version is out) make this a no brianer for me. Price has crept up a bit since I purchased.
Overall excellent unit with some minor annoyances. None of them are deal breakers for me.

It's a very competent head unit, but like some others may have mentioned before, it has a couple GLARING flaws.
1) Street names are displayed far and few on the maps. Read more
