Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on April 30, 2018
You won't find it anywhere online, I did deep research to find out how to activate traffic reports and found nothing. I called pioneer support and was told that the only way to receive traffic updates with this model is to download the pioneer app on my phone, connect it via usb/Bluetooth, and pay $5/mo to get traffic updates.
The reason I bought this unit was to get traffic updates independant of my cell phone.
The other models (6201/7201/8201) use HD radio to show traffic updates, FREE OF CHARGE. I returned this 5201 and bought a 7201.
I wish they would've stated this plainly somewhere so that I could've avoided the headache from the beginning.

Otherwise, this is a very nice unit.if the above mometioned issue doesn't affect you, you'll love this thing. Installed in my 2015 Ford Transit 150 Cargo using the Metra DD dash kit.
