Touchscreen convenience

Fed up with your factory radio? Tired of fiddly little buttons? Add Pioneer's MVH-210EX 6.2" touchscreen receiver to your dash for easier management of music sources, album art with metadata, and a video display for a backup cam. And if you haven't yet enjoyed Bluetooth® hands-free calling and wireless audio streaming in your vehicle, that's a great reason for upgrading to this great-sounding stereo.

All about Bluetooth

Bluetooth lets you safely enjoy hands-free calling, plus you can access the media on your smartphone. Choose from tracks in your digital library or stream audio like podcasts... wirelessly. This Pioneer radio also allows you to pair two phones for quick and easy access — a handy feature for the family ride.

Room to expand

Rock out to your old music library! Plug your old school music player into the AUX input, or connect your iPod®, iPhone® or other compatible device to the USB input. Pioneer also gives you control from the MVH-210EX over compatible Android devices, even displaying metadata such as track, artist, and album name when it's available. While the car is parked and the parking brake is engaged, you can view video from an outboard video player or that's stored on a USB drive.

13-band equalizer

All your digital music will sound awesome on the MVH-210EX, thanks to a 13-band equalizer that brings out the best in any genre of music. And if you want to bring even more punch to your system, you can connect an amp or powered sub to the three sets of preamp outputs.

What's your color?

Choose from a variety of different colors to match the button illumination to your vehicle's interior lighting and give your new stereo a factory look or an outrageous vibe.

Add a backup cam

You can also connect a rear-view camera to the MVH-210EX for an easier time backing in and out of parking spots.

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.

Smartphone note: If you're going to use your smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Good economy option with limitations.

    Crutchfield customer from Oaks, OK on 5/6/2019

    2006 Jeep Liberty

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

    We installed this in a 2006 Jeep Liberty. It was a bit of an adventure. Overall - Nicely laid out economic option for updating an older vehicle with a dual DIN unit. Be aware that it does NOT support Android Auto or Carplay. The overview notes "Android Music" support. That seems to mean that it supports MTP and Bluetooth. Not an issue per-se, but unless you read the fine print this can be confusing.

    Pros: Very fast boot up. * Simple and intuitive controls and setup * Appears rugged with great fit and finish * Bluetooth is clear and connects automatically

    Cons: * No Android Auto and Limited Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) support. MTP support does not work with the current Samsung devices we tried it with. * Required extensive sub-dash modifications to fit the Liberty. Without the USB connector its (almost) a direct fit. With that cable you have to hack away at the lower support guides. * Bluetooth does not appear to support AptX.

    Amazing head unit, couldn't has asked for anything more. Only reason it got a 4 star is because the contact list often times randomly pops up and you gotta clear it and it'll do it a couple more times. And sometimes phone calls automatically end if you click "iPhone" for phone call listening options.

    Upgraded my daughter's factory stereo in her 2006 Honda Pilot. Easy install following Crutchfield's directions and harness. Great sound and easy to use. I wanted something simple with large screen so my teenager wouldn't have to look at screen and knobs while driving. Nice controls for subwoofer as well to balance sound. Great double DIN head unit for the money!

    Pros: Ease of install. Ease of operation. Simple Bluetooth connectivity. Great sound.

    Cons: No 8 track player. :-)

    I gave this radio 5 stars, not because it's a great radio, but for its great value. It is a decent radio that gives a lot of features for the price.

    Pros: Good value.

    Cons: It would be nice if the screen would go a little brighter, it's hard to see on a sunny day even at the brightest setting.

    My Son and I put this in his 2010 Jeep Wrangler. Install was pretty much as described in the accompanying directions provided by Crutchfield. So far he likes the unit. The fit was perfect.

    Pros: Sounds and works great, looks good, clean looking install

    Cons: You have to hook up the parking brake wire to use the bluetooth features.

    I bought this radio to replace my stock radio in my honda civic. This radio looks like it came in the car from the factory. I love the option that it gives me from bluetooth to the multi sound functions. Crutchfeild was the absolute best with shipping, price, and I opted for them to do the wiring( which might I add made the install very painless.)

    Pros: Eq options are amazing Touch screen

    Cons: Having to reconnect bluetooth everytime I get in the car.

    Great product. Worked out of the box. Bluetooth worked. Love the way you can select settings as your favorites as you don't have to scroll through several menu options to change certain things. Helpful while driving. Speaking of, visibility is great overall....Except direct sunlight. Can be hard to see in direct sunlight. It's not a big deal to me, but the lack of a USB port on the front might deter some. The saving grace, they provide a USB extension cable. The ability to change the color variations/backgrounds is good as well. As well as the EQ settings. You can individually change the frequencies to match your wants. Bluetooth on this model synced my contacts for hands free calling. The provided microphone is robust enough to where yelling isn't necessary. Initial Bluetooth connectivity once powered on does seem on the slower side. I can get in start my truck, buckle up and start driving before it will connect. This might be normal, and isn't a deal breaker for me, so no detraction for the review IMO. This is just my initial review of this unit. I have had it working for about a week now and use it daily. Mine isn't completely installed in dash as I'm working out a backup camera issue. The photos for my review are unedited from my Iphone 8+.

    Pros: Ability to select music from the head unit Bluetooth compatibility Favorites selection for settings EQ customization Color customization

    Cons: Not much of a con for me, but some might say the USB port on the back, instead of the front. Bluetooth a bit slow on initial connection.

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

    I recently purchased a used 2010 Corolla S (six-speaker non JBL w/ NAV) and the stock sound system was HORRIBLE. Added a Pioneer MVH-210EX head unit to go along with a Rockford Fostgate P300-10 powered sub, and all I can say is "wow" - it made all the difference. I've had aftermarket stereo systems with 2x12's in my past younger days, but now in my mid-30's- I simply don't need that much bass. Just want something to fill out and improve the quality of sound. You can tell by the volume and clarity the head unit is sending a much stronger /cleaner signal to the factory speakers.

    Pros: Sleek design; Looks good; Adjustable High and Low Pass Crossover settings; 13 band EQ

    Cons: No front USB input

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth 3.0: The MVH-210EX 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 MVH-210EX.

    SPP (Secure Simple Pairing): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the MVH-210EX without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. Up to 3 Bluetooth-compatible devices (2 phones/1 audio player) can be paired to this head unit.

    • Dual Phone Connection: You are 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.
    • 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.

    Audio Section

    24-Bit/96kHz DAC: For superb quality audio playback from USB & Bluetooth, the Pioneer MVH-210EX is equipped with a 24-bit/96kHz digital-to-analog converter.

    MOSFET50 Internal Amplifier: The Pioneer MVH-210EX 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 MVH-210EX 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 MVH-210EX 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 MVH-210EX lets you adjust the subwoofer preamp output's phase (normal/reverse) and volume (+10 to -24).

    Crossovers: The MVH-210EX 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) + 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.
