Their AVH-211EX DVD receiver offers a responsive touchscreen, built-in Bluetooth®, serious sound tuning ability, and plenty of ways to enjoy your favorite entertainment when you're in the car.

Bluetooth makes your drive better

With this Pioneer's built-in Bluetooth, you'll make and take calls safely while keeping your hands on the wheel. And the included external mic ensures that whoever you call will hear you loud and clear. If you've got favorite streaming services or music files on your phone, you don't even have to plug in to listen to them through wireless audio streaming.

Great sounding music

You can play CDs, connect your audio device to the aux input, and enjoy control over your iPhone® and Android phone via USB. You can watch DVDs when the parking brake is engaged, or send the video output to optional rear-seat screens when you're mobile. The AVH-211EX rocks out with a powerful amplifier, supported by a versatile 13-band equalizer that tames the rough spots in your car's acoustics. If you're looking for even more punch, connect an amp or powered sub to the three sets of preamp outputs and kick things up a notch.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

    Crutchfield instructions LIE.

    MRL from WASHINGTON on 7/9/2019

    2003 Subaru Outback

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Unit works fine. Wiring was easy enough. Dismantling my dash was trickier than I had anticipated. But the WORST PART was the instructions given to me by Crutchfield. They claim this headunit fits my 2003 Subaru but I had to cut up my dash frames for it to fit. This was the second vehicle that I had to do this with when using Crutchfield instructions. It's pretty ridiculous that they tell you that it fits your car when it doesnt. I should have made some shmuck from Crutchfield install it for me, only I didnt want to spend the money. What a headache. I dont think I'll use Crutchfield again, or probably not for a long time. Unit works fine though. Giving three stars instead of four because the instructions were wack.

    Pros: Sound is better than factory unit. Clean look, not out of place. Touch screen works well.

    Cons: Crutchfield instructions lied about unit fitting in 2003 Subaru Outback, had to cut dash frame with power tools. Instructions didnt mention you'll need three different length screw drivers and probably a ratchet with a Phillip's driver head.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I wanted a simple radio with bluetooth capability for my 2007 Nissan Xterra, and this definitely fits the bill. The call quality is really great on both sides with the microphone above the steering column. I'm sure I'm not using it to it's full capability, but it's perfect for what I wanted. The only thing that I didn't realize I would miss is a volume knob as opposed to volume buttons. As others have stated it is a little hard to see from the glare, but I can see the skip button well enough to move through Pandora so it doesn't bother me.

    Overall a great head unit with decent output power for a fair price. First time buyer from crutchfield and they were incredible with customer service when the first unit I recieved was faulty. The install directions were straight forward and on point. Would definitly shop from crutchfield again.

    Pros: Easy install, decent output power and good interface. Auto connect bluetooth is nice as well.

    Cons: Only the dimly lit display during daylight.

    Why don't Double Din radios use larger fonts

    Crutchfield customer from Wyoming, MI on 5/1/2019

    2008 Mazda Mazdaspeed3

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I went with this unit as a compromise, I wanted to get an Android Auto headunit, but I could not at this time justify twice the price. My biggest problem with all Double DIN touch screen radios is font size. They have this huge amount of screen real estate, and then choose to use small fonts. For the most part it's not really a problem, but when I am streaming Pandora and a new track comes on, I have to take my eyes off the road for a bit too long in order to read the new track name. The other slight issue I have is that the track name does not always update when the next track starts. This has mostly been a problem using Pandora. I believe this issue to be on the headunit side, because I do not have this problems in other cars using the same phone. All in all this radio functionally works good at a great price. I would say it's more like 3.5 stars, but I rounded up to 4.

    Pros: Great Value, Good Equalizer, Great Features for the Price

    Cons: Small Fonts, Minor Bluetooth Issues

    So far have been very pleased with this radio. Was looking for something easy to use and user friendly. The only reason for 4 stars is can't get the DVD to play. I know it is something to do with the wiring just haven't got back on it.

    Pros: User friendly and provides the basics and some extras

    This s is a very nice stereo. The only drawback for me is that the display is not bright enough during the day but this could be due to mine being angled up so I get glares fron the sun. Other than that I really like it.

    Pros: Easy interface.

    Cons: Display brightness not enough during the day.

Same issues within a day of install. Bluetooth phone book screens pops up randomly and will not close. I can't use the touch screen at all due to this screen. I will be staying away from Pioneer.

    I am still amazed by the sound that come out of my old stock speakers. I would have never imagined they could sound this great. I am able to listen to stations that I was not able to with the stock radio which is great. The Bluetooth is wonderful except for the time it takes to sync every time it connects with my phone but that is because of my contact list , which is very large file. I add add a backup camera and the image is wonderful. I have not tried out the DVD player yet but from the backup camera image it probably will be great.

    Pros: Touch screen, great sound, hands free phone is great. Looks like is was made for my dash. Steering wheel controls work like factory.

    Cons: Time it take to sync contacts every time it connects with my phone.

    I bought this product to update my 2002 Tundra because I never plan on getting rid of it. This stereo fit like it was the original from the factory and the wiring harness made so easy to install. The video is bright and it sounds good when you play music videos. I plan in the near future to add a power subwoofer and replace my factory speakers with 100w kickers. And for the price your not going to find a better product . The support team made it so easy to figure out what product I needed for my truck. Thanks Crutchfield

    Contrary to the info. above, this unit fits perfectly & beautifuly in the 2007 Mazda 5 (with the installation kit of course)...it's a terrific replacement for the stock unit...sounds just as good as before, still with the stock speakers...but now there's super clear hands free calls, dvd, bluetooth, and a reverse camera...none of which we had before!..we retained the steering wheel controls too!

    Pros: Has just the features and quality I wanted, and....The Price is right!

    Would give zero stars if possible. This was a replacement for a poorly performing Kenwood. This was highly recommended by an advisor at Crutchfield. Was initially very happy. However, after a week it is dead. Fuse is fine and intact. Unit won't power up. Done with aftermarket stereos. Crutchfield has been great with the issues I have had. Avoid these poorly made aftermarket pieces of junk.

    Installed this in a 2005 Porsche 911. Used a harness kit and dash kit. The website worked great to get all the parts necessary. Install was simple and the unit looks great in the car. Fit was perfect. The unit is easy to use, interface is simple and intuitive. Screen is clear and buttons are in the right place. The unit has a USB port on the back and comes with a usb cable so you can run it to a convenient location. This allows for easy connect to iPhone, Android, iTouch, etc. A wireless remote control is also included - sort of silly for a small sports car but would be great in a big four door truck or van. Kids would love it. Sound is quite good and better than the OEM unit. The car has a high end OEM Bose speaker and amp system so it never sounded poor. While other more expensive units have more options/feature I really didn't need/want anything beyond the USB, bluetooth, a CD player (occasionally) and a good working radio.

    Pros: Nice features, easy to use, reasonable price.

    Cons: No problems at this point.

    For the Price it is great! This was a Christmas gift for my Kid and he is satisfied with it. We like him having Blue tooth hands free when we call him. We purchased him some new Kickers to go with it and a backup camera. My wife is now thinking about upgrading. No android Auto on this model like my AVH-2330-NEX but the kid can stream Pandora and see the phone number calling him. We had a little trouble with the backup camera but Crutchfield is like the Publix Supermarket of Audio. Great support if you have trouble!

    Pros: Excellent Price. Easy to use. Great sound! Chrutchfield sends everything you need for the installation.

    Cons: Little more apple friendly than Android. The Bluetooth will stream and do calls with android but plugging in direct not so much.

    The only reason I don't give the AVH-211EX 5 stars is the insufficient display brightness under daytime lighting. That being said, I love these feature packed, low cost units. Where else can you find a touch screen system for this little money that has Bluetooth, plays CD/DVDs, has great radio reception, a good smartphone interface, very flexible EQ settings, and enough power output to use without a power amp (if your intent is to listen at normal to loud sound pressure levels). The only other minor inconvenience is the lack of a front panel USB port and 3.5mm input jack. They're both on the back, but Pioneer gives you a USB extension cord so you can access this port from a front seat location of your choosing. You can even hook up a back up camera if you're so inclined. The minimalist front panel styling only has room for a vertical row of touch controls on the left edge, but one touch in the center brings up all of the source choices on the screen for easy selection. iPhone pairing is very straightforward, simple, and works well. Once I had the unit installed, radio stations programmed in (18 FM presets!), and my phone paired, the supplied wireless remote control makes operation while driving very convenient without distracting me while hurtling down the road. I've installed four double-DIN Pioneer units in our vehicles so far, and I'm still impressed with the combination of features and performance at a low cost.

    Nice features. Costs as much as the DSP unit I was looking at. Overall I'm glad I bought it. My only issue is that poor processing quality of the higher bit rate WMA format. It's slowed and choppy. MP3 workes great. Bluetooth works fine but I still have to open my Pandora app manually. If you have the money get the 501EX. That one has 4v preouts. I hooked mine up to an EQS since I already had one so I'm covered there.

    Pros: DSP/seperate crossover point options for front,rear and subs/backup camera input/simple user friendly interface

    Cons: 2 volt preouts/no HD radio/slow compressed file decoder processor. For $80-$90 more you could get the better AVH-501EX version with more bells and whistles.

    My wife's 2010 Corolla head unit was going out and she uses the heck out of it to play audio books from the library. This double-DIN unit was a great fit for the Corolla and looks almost like a factory installation with the kit from Crutchfield. We were able to maintain the steering wheel controls with the upgraded harness. It sounds good and has a ton of options.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth 3.0: The AVH-211EX is equipped with built-in Bluetooth 3.0, allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP 1.6 (Hands Free Profile), PBAB 1.0 (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.3 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP 1.6 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Pioneer AVH-211EX.

    Multi-Device Pairing Dual Phone Connection: Up to 3 Bluetooth-compatible devices (2 phones/1 audio player) can be paired to this head unit. You are even able to keep two Bluetooth-enabled smartphones connected at the same time, so you can switch between phones from the head unit's touchscreen, without having to connect or re-connect devices.

    • SSP (Secure Simple Pairing): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the AVH-211EX without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings.
    • Auto Re-Connection: Once an already paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically links the head unit and device together. If two Bluetooth devices were connected the last time, the two devices are connected to this unit automatically in the order that they are registered in the device list.

    Hands-Free Communication (w/ External Mic): The PioneerAVH-211EX supports wireless hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. Thanks to the latest Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.6) with wideband speech capability, the AVH-211EX provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls. The AVH-211EX allows you to carry on a phone conversation from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone using the head unit's external microphone and your car audio speakers. During a conversation you can adjust the volume, as well as switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode.

    • Answering A Call: During an incoming phone call, the head unit will display the caller's information and an audible ring tone will be heard through your vehicle's speakers. You can manually answer an incoming call or have the unit automatically answer the call.
    • Making A Call: The AVH-211EX offers a variety of ways to make call using the in-dash receiver.
      • Direct Dialing: You can make a call by entering the phone number using the head unit's touchscreen keypad.

      • Phone Book: The phone book (up to 1,000 contacts) in your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone will be transferred automatically when the phone is paired to this unit. After finding the number you want to call in the phone book from the head unit, you can select the entry and make the call. If a lot of numbers are registered in the phone book, you can search for a phone number by the contact person's name alphabetically.
      • Call History: The 80 most recent calls dialed, received, and missed are stored in memory. You can browse them and call numbers from these lists.
    Note: Advanced phone operations that require attention, such as dialing numbers on the touchscreen monitor or adjusting Bluetooth settings, are prohibited while driving. The vehicle's parking brake must be engaged to access these functions.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The Pioneer AVH-211EX also supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone. The head unit can stream music stored on your Bluetooth enabled device or music apps you have downloaded on your device. When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call.

    • Advanced Music Navigation: In addition to basic playback functions (Play/Pause, FF/RW, Skip, Random/Repeat), the AVH-211EX lets you browse your stored music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, etc.. (search functions will vary by phone).
    • Song/Artist Info: The head unit will also display your stored music's and music app's song information; such as Artist name and Song/Album title (no album art).

    Android & iPhone Integration

    Android MTP Playback: The Pioneer AVH-211EX supports MTP for playback & control of stored MP3/WMA/AAC music files on your Android (OS 4.0+) device through the Pioneer receiver's rear-panel USB port.

    iPhone Direct Connect: The Pioneer AVH-211EX's rear-panel USB port can be used to connect your Apple device with Lightning connector to the head unit. You'll need a Lightning-to-USB cable to connect your Apple device with Lightning connector. The USB connection allows for audio playback, music navigation, information display (including album art), and charging of your compatible iPhone or iPod.

    • Audio Control: From the head unit's touchscreen, you can search your iPod/iPhone's audio content by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Podcast, Genre, Composer, or Audiobook. You can also select Random & Repeat functions for a certain song or specific folder. You'll still be able to control your iPod or iPhone from the device's touchscreen too.
    • Song/Artist/Album Info: In addition, the head unit will display your iPod/iPhone's stored music information including Elapsed playing time, Artist name, Song & Album title, as well as Album Art.
    Note: If there are 10,000 songs or more on your iPod/iPhone, it will require almost one hour to fully populate the song list.

    • BSM (Best Stations Memory): BSM lets you automatically store the six strongest stations under preset buttons 1-6 of the currently tuned band. The tuner has 3 FM banks and 1 AM bank. You can store 6 presets for each bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM presets.
    • Local Tuning: Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. There are 4 level of sensitivity for FM and two levels for AM. The higher settings allow reception of only the strongest stations, while lower settings let you receive progressively weaker stations.

    Disc & USB Playback

    Compatible Discs: The AVH-211EX supports playback of DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW, CD-Audio, and CD-R/RW discs with music & video files.

    Audio Section

    24-Bit/96kHz DAC: For superb quality audio playback from disc and USB, the Pioneer AVH-211EX is equipped with a 24-bit/96kHz digital-to-analog converter.

    MOSFET50 Internal Amplifier: The Pioneer AVH-211EX is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.

    • CTA-2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (or 50 watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)
    Note: The power specifications for the AVH-211EX are compliant with the CTA-2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.

    2V/6CH Preamp Outputs + Sub Control: The Pioneer AVH-211EX features three pair of 2.0-volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Subwoofer). The unit's front and rear preamp output can be faded (front/rear), while the subwoofer preamp output is non-fading. The Pioneer AVH-211EX lets you adjust the subwoofer preamp output's phase (normal/reverse) and volume (+10 to -24).

    Crossovers: The AVH-211EX employs high pass and low pass crossovers to tailor the head unit to your connected speakers.

    • HPF: The head unit features a HPF (High Pass Filter) for its front & rear speaker-level or preamp outputs. The HPF's crossover slope can be set to -6, -12, -18, or -24 dB/octave. The HPF's crossover frequency can be set to 25, 31.5, 40, 50, 63, 80, 100, 125, 160, 200, or 250 Hz.
    • LPF: The head unit features a LPF (Low Pass Filter) for its subwoofer preamp output. The LPF's crossover slope can be set to -6, -12, -18, -24, -30, or -36 dB/octave. The LPF's crossover frequency can be set to 25, 31.5, 40, 50, 63, 80, 100, 125, 160, 200, or 250 Hz.

    EEQ (Easy EQ) w/ 13-Band Graphic EQ: There are seven stored equalizer curves which you can easily recall at any time. You can choose from - Powerful, Natural, Vocal, Super Bass, Flat, Custom 1, or Custom 2. The Custom 1 and Custom 2 EQ modes allow you to manually adjust the level (+/- 12dB) of each band of the head unit's 13-band graphic equalizer (50, 80, 125, 200, 315, 500, 800, 1.25k, 2k, 3.15k, 5k, 8k, and 12.5k Hz).

    Audio Settings: The head unit provides further sound adjustments for your car audio system.

    • Listening Position & Time Alignment: For a better sound-stage you can select your optimal listening position. You can choose from All, Front Left, Front Right, or Front. You can also select to manually fine tune the sound stage, using Digital Time Alignment (DTA) by selecting the distance (0-140") for each individual speaker in the vehicle compared to your listening position.
    • Speaker Level: You can adjust each speaker and sub channel independently from +10 to -24 to best even out the sound in your vehicle.
    • Bass Boost: You can easily boost the subwoofer bass level by using the Bass Boost function. The Bass Boost feature allows you increase the subwoofer level from 0 to +12 dB.
    • Loudness: The Loudness function compensates for deficiencies in the low- and high-frequency ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness to High, Mid, Low, or Off.
    • Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Settings are based on the unit's FM volume level, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from -4 dB to +4 dB.

    Rear Speaker Setup The rear speaker outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading capability, or they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass) output. When the rear speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp outputs also switch from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer operation, you can connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm passive subwoofers or a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you prefer to use a single 2-ohm subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of speaker leads, leaving the other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum output provided when a 2-ohm load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.

    Key Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. The beep tone can be turned on or off.

    AV Connections

    AV Input: The head unit has a rear-panel 3.5mm minijack AV input for connecting an external audio/video device. Your vehicle's parking brake must be engaged to view video on the receiver's touchscreen.

    Video Output: A single RCA composite video-output jack allows you to an add external monitor, such as rear headrest or overhead monitor (sold separately). The video output can display a DVD, USB, or AV-input video signal when its selected as the receiver's source, regardless if the vehicle's parking brake is engaged or not.

    • Auto View: The unit features a function that automatically switches to the rear camera image. When the vehicle's transmission is put in reverse, the screen automatically switches to the rear view camera (violet/white wire of the harness must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching). Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.2 seconds.
    • Camera View: There is also a Camera View mode which allows you to manually bring up the rearview camera image on the receiver's touchscreen monitor to check what is behind you while driving. You can leave the Camera View mode on if you want to see the rearview image at all times; for instance when towing a trailer.

    Touchscreen & Remote Control

    Clear Resistive Touchscreen: The AVH-211EX features a 6.2" clear resistive LCD touchscreen with a display resolution of 800 x 480 (RGB), for a total of 1,152,000 pixels. The clear resistive touchscreen is designed to enhance the visibility of on-screen graphics and images, making them appear clear and crisp. The LCD touchscreen allows you to control this unit and a connected component, such as an iPod/iPhone, a USB mass storage class device, or Bluetooth source. Menus appear on screen for making function choices, audio adjustments, and setting up the system.

The color of the button illumination can be set to red, amber, green, blue, white, or rainbow (constantly cycling through the color spectrum). You can also create a custom color to match your vehicle's interior lighting (112 colors to choose from).

    Dimmer: To prevent the touchscreen display and button illumination from being too bright at night, the illumination is automatically dimmed when the car's headlights are turned on. The automatic dimmer function only works when the orange/white illumination wire in the wiring harness is connected to the vehicle's headlight circuit. You can also turn on or off the dimmer manually. You can even set a timer for the dimmer to turn on or off.

    Remote Functions: The Pioneer AVH-211EX DVD receiver includes a wireless remote control and offers steering wheel control capability (adapter required).

    • Wireless Remote Control: The Pioneer AVH-211EX includes an IR remote control (CXE5116) for wireless operation of the DVD receiver and your connected devices. The included remote does offer Bluetooth phone functions.
    • Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately).

    Trying to replace the factory radio (Boston Acoustics) in Jeep commander Overland. The speaker wiring is straight forward, however I can not get the radio to power up at all. I've check the fuse under the hood, and under the dash and both are fine. I've tried to use a multi-meter on the Jeep's radio harness and there seems to be power. I've also tried to power up an extra radio and I'm having the same issues. Do you know of anything else to try?

    I know you can connect to bluetooth fo calls and music but I dont think it supports android auto because that requires a 7" screen and this only has a 6.2" screen I ended up sending it back and purchasing a AVH2300NEX model instead because it has a 7" screen

    Yes it does. It runs apple car play and android auto. I run a Samsung Galaxy and bluetooth to it just fine.

    Q
    I understand this is a scratch and dent item - where are the scratches and or dents? Is there anything missing for that bundle purchase (wiring harness, bluetooth connector, antenna hook up)?

    If a Scratch & Dent item even has a blemish, it will be very small and not affect the product's performance or capabilities in any way. They are completely bench tested to ensure full functionality and are covered by the full original manufacturer's warranty. All essential accessories are included.
