Pioneer today
unveiled
five new NEX in-dash multimedia receivers with
CarPlay and
Android Auto support, including the first-ever single-DIN model.


The single-DIN AVH-3300NEX is a smaller, more universally sized
receiver that can fit into many older and collectible cars.
Unlike a double-DIN receiver, which has a built-in display,
this single-DIN model features a 7-inch pop out, motorized
display. The whole unit is also detachable for added security.

The other four receivers are double-DIN models, including the
7-inch AVH-2330NEX and AVH-2300NEX and 6.2-inch AVH-1330NEX and
AVH-1300NEX.

In addition to CarPlay and Android Auto, Pioneer said all five
receivers feature Bluetooth for hands-free calling and music
streaming, native Spotify and Pandora, a USB port, HD Radio,
and SiriusXM
compatibility with a tuner sold separately. All models are also
backup camera and Pioneer navigation system ready.

The AVH-3300NEX, AVH-2330NEX and AVH-1330NEX also come with a
remote control to adjust volume, audio sources, and more.

Pioneer said the new NEX lineup will be available through
resellers in July with suggested retail prices of $600 for the
single-DIN model, and between $400 and $500 for the double-DIN
models, in the United States. The prices are lower because all
five receivers have resistive rather than capacitive
touchscreens.

Pioneer’s current NEX
receivers
retail for between $400 and $1,400 in the United
States. Competing aftermarket CarPlay systems are available
from
Alpine
,
Clarion
,
Kenwood
,
