About the Pioneer AVIC-W8500NEX
Wireless phone integration for all kinds of drivers
Pioneer's flagship AVIC-W8500NEX navigation receiver attempts to disprove that old adage that one shouldn't try to be all things to all people. Pioneer wants to give people an excellent multimedia experience no matter what kind of phone they own, so this radio's compatible with both wireless Apple Car Play® and wireless Android Auto™ — you can get rolling with music, maps, and more through your stereo without having to stop and plug your phone in. Pioneer's capacitive 6.94" touchscreen display puts you in charge of how you see your maps, and you'll also enjoy built-in traffic reports. Need more? How about an HD Radio™ tuner, Bluetooth®, and an array of sonic upgrades to keep you entertained?
Apple CarPlay for easy control
Apple CarPlay puts your iPhone's content at your fingertips. Plug in or wirelessly pair your iPhone, and you'll access all your navigation, phone calls, weather, text messages, and all your music through simple controls and voice commands. The AVIC-W8500NEX knows when your iPhone's nearby and can start CarPlay for you automatically via its built-in Wi-Fi® network. Get more info at www.apple.com/ios/carplay.
WebLink® gives you access to more
This Pioneer includes WebLink, which provides you simple in-dash control over select apps like YouTube® and Yelp®. It essentially replaces Pioneer's AppRadio Mode+ functionality, while adding more features. WebLink works with iPhone now, and Android™ compatibility will come soon. And it works with Amazon Alexa, so you can ask questions and add items to your shopping list from the road. You can switch between CarPlay and WebLink with just two finger taps. So load up the free Pioneer WebLink app, plug in your phone, and you'll have quick access to some handy infotainment for your journey.
Wireless Android Auto with select phones
You can also enjoy the benefits of Android Auto without connecting to the AVIC-W8500NEX via USB. That's convenience on top of convenience, considering all the good things the Android-based interface lets you control with your voice, like Google Maps, Waze, weather, music, your phone, and text messages. Plus, you'll get easy access to many of your favorite apps — find out more at www.android.com/auto. You can also plug your phone in for wired Android Auto, if you prefer.
(Please check the Details tab to ensure your Android device works with wireless Android Auto.)
If you have an Android device, you can still benefit from Wi-Fi Certified Miracast™, which lets you mirror your phone's screen on the AVIC-W8500NEX's display without a wired connection. It's not universal but should work with most Android phones.
Nearly 7 inches of capacitive touchscreen fun
The AVIC-W8500NEX's 6.94" capacitive touchscreen provides multi-touch control so you can zoom maps and other display aspects for a better view. You also get new wallpaper choices and the ability to customize the display with as many apps and sources on the home screen as you wish. It even offers a "Power Off" mode in the source menu for those times when you want a completely dark screen. The receiver's HDMI input means that your phone can more easily be used as an audio or video source.
Raise your awareness of congestion and happenings nearby
A lost driver is an unhappy driver, so count on this receiver's GPS technology to guide you practically anywhere in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. You can search for stopping points along your route among the 12 million included points of interest, or mark your own favorite spots for future reference. Built-in live traffic updates alert you to potential delays caused by congestion along your route. For a better look at the map, you can choose the level of map zoom manually. Spoken street names at turns and lane guidance keep you on track, while speed limit warnings help you stay safe.
Built-in Bluetooth for convenient chatting and streaming
Wireless Bluetooth connectivity keeps you in contact with others from the road with hands-free calling, and the included external microphone gives your conversations plenty of clarity. And the receiver will work with most phones for wireless streaming audio, thanks to its advanced Hands-Free Profile technology. You'll also get smartphone app control through your devices.
Top-notch audio with high-resolution playback
The built-in 13-band graphic equalizer, Auto EQ, and Time Alignment let you shape the sonic output to suit your tastes. Use the high- and low-pass crossover's adjustable points and slopes for further adjustments, and engage the Advanced Sound Retriever to fill in the missing "gaps" in your compressed music files to restore clarity. This Pioneer's also compatible with high-resolution FLAC files, so you can play your music from a thumb drive with maximum fidelity.
Movie time nearly any time
You can check out video from DVDs or other sources (including an SD card) on the 6.94" display when you're parked. You can also tap into video content on your iPod or smartphone with the help of the correct cable (not included). When you're on the road, you can play movies through a rear-seat monitor for your passengers, so they can stay entertained. Dual-zone capability lets you enjoy the radio or another audio source up front while your passengers watch their favorite movies with headphones in the back.
Get a better view with a camera or two
You can also connect up to two cameras, so you can see more of what's near your vehicle when getting in and out of tight spots. And Pioneer's onscreen parking guidelines help you maneuver into your space. Need to pull up your rear-view camera in a hurry? A dedicated icon in the source menu gives you instant access.
Ready for SiriusXM satellite radio
The AVIC-W8500NEX radio features a connection for an optional satellite radio tuner, so you can enjoy SiriusXM's extensive programming with your subscription. You can listen to your chosen channels no matter where you roam, and take advantage of special features such as alerts when your favorite songs or sports teams are on the air.
Built-in HD Radio tuner
If you're in an area with HD Radio broadcasts, the Pioneer's built-in tuner can pick them up. You'll hear improved fidelity and reception from participating AM/FM stations all over.
iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras — and add some upgrades
The AVIC-W8500NEX offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included). In a wide selection of vehicles, this module lets you keep factory features that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You'll also be able to check out engine performance data and other vehicle info on the Pioneer's screen. Once you've identified your vehicle, you'll see the iDatalink module offered on the way to the Shopping Cart if it's compatible.
You'll need a wired connection to your parking brake to access settings and other features on this receiver. Your parking brake must be connected and set in order to view video on its screen.
