Modular 6.8'' Multimedia Receiver with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, Built-in Bluetooth®, SiriusXM-Ready™, iDataLink® Maestro™ with Remote Control Included
Pioneer’s Modular Solutions receivers are designed for applications, often newer vehicles, with limited depth behind the dash that prohibits the installation of a traditional 1DIN or 2DIN receiver. This installation flexibility is achieved by physically separating the LCD touchscreen display from the sub-chassis that contains the CPU, control system, terrestrial radio tuner, amplifier and input/output connections. This allows the sub-chassis to be mounted in a different location* or different horizontal/vertical orientation within the vehicle. To simplify installation and increase vehicle applications, Pioneer and Metra Electronics are partnering to developing vehicle specific Radio Install Kits** that make the Pioneer Modular Solutions receivers both cosmetically integrated and simple to install.
* Sub-chassis remote installation may require either the RD-RGB150A or CD-RGB150E accessory, sold separately.
** Metra Electronics Radio Install Kits sold separately through Authorized Metra Electronics Dealers. Visitwww.metraonline.com.
