The AVH-P1400DVD was a bit of a surprise. This model most closely resembles last year’s AVH-P2300DVD. It still has a 5.8”, AM/FM/CD/DVD, Front USB and Aux and you can add navigation with the AVIC-U220.
It is still the same radio quality wise for equalizer and power but Pioneer is giving us a treat this year. Pioneer has expanded the App Radio accessibility. If the user has an iPhone or iTouch 4 or newer, navigation can be added by using the App Mode feature in the unit and Pioneer’s iPod cable, CD-IU51V. Plug your iPhone to the front USB, use your navigation app on your iPhone to plot your route and you will be able to view it on the main screen and hear the prompts through your speakers. Hallelujah!
Some iPhone apps will be completely usable from the AVH-P1400DVD such as Pandora Radio. Using the CD-IU51V, you’ll be able to see the Station title, song and artist and use the thumb up or down.
No more dash mounted accessories to hold your iPhone to view your route. Leave it in your bag or in your console. Once you have up the app you need and make your choice you’ll see it bigger and better on the AVH-P1400DVD.
