No doubt about it, Bluetooth has changed the way I use my car stereo. No more plugging in my phone or iPod® — my favorite streaming music, podcasts, music files — they're all automatically on tap when I get behind the wheel. And when a call comes in, I can answer with the touch of a button and talk hands-free, so my eyes (and attention) stay on the road. And since I'm an iPhone® user, I've got Siri on tap just by pressing the receiver's control knob. Pioneer's DEH-X3910BT CD receiver can bring all the convenience to your vehicle too.
The DEH-X3910BT's built-in Bluetooth keeps you safely connected while driving.
And this versatile Pioneer adds a couple of other cool features to your Bluetooth experience. Wide Band Speech Technology ensures clear and easy-to-understand conversations – no more shouting so your caller can understand you. The receiver pairs up with two phones at a time, so your significant other can always make a call. Plus, with many devices, you can browse through your music library by playlist, artist, album title, or song title.
Connect your iPod® or iPhone® to the front-panel USB input, and you'll be able to access your playlists from the receiver's controls. If you're into your CD collection, you'll enjoy excellent reproduction of your store-bought and home-burned discs.
The DEH-X3910BT adds your Android to the mix with Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0). Connect via USB and you can access your favorite music files from compatible devices. You'll enjoy excellent sound quality and you won't have to pick up the phone whenever you want to skip a track. You'll also enjoy control over your favorite Pandora® or Spotify stations from the receiver when your iPhone or Android is connected.
Once you download Pioneer's Advanced Remote Control App (ARC) to your iOS or Android device, you've got a smart remote control for your Pioneer in the palm of your hand. You or your passengers will be able to use your touchscreen to access advanced functions like audio settings, source selection, playback, music library browsing, music app selection, and much more.
The built-in 5-band EQ allows you to shape the tone of the powerful built-in amplifier, so your music sounds right in your car. Two pairs of preamp outputs let you add external amplifiers or a powered sub.
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.
iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

Great to use
Fantastic stereo for the money! Huge upgrade! With Crutchfield's free mounting hardware, I installed this myself in just over an hour with one hand.
Great unit for the money. Bluetooth works better than expected.
Pros: Works better than expected.has everything I was looking for. Easy to install.
This is a great radio! Very good for the price. I recommend. I'm a big fan of bass, and this does it well.
Good radio bt works great
Great stereo for the price!
This head unit has a lot to offer. There's a lot of audio options as far as Bass, woofer settings, and HQ settings, everything that you play sounds clear and full. The bluetooth connection is strong and has no feedback when music is not playing. And the android/iOS compatibility is great. Definitely a must have.
Pros: Great quality Many options Good Bluetooth connectivity
installation instruction were very confusing, for someone not doing this before.
Pros: good value for the bucks
Cons: pain to install
This radio have everything for a simple upgrade from the original radio and even more. After the installation I test the sound quality on a phone call and even with my windows all the way down and doing over 50 mph, the sound for the person on the other say was amazing. also even is a economic model it have is own remote control and with the mounting kit I have to tell you it look way nice!!!!. if is something simple but you really want to use class and get all the features check it out!!!!
Pros: Great price, features (MP3, Bluetooth, remote control, it comes with is own microphone for the call. and a nice and sharp look
Cons: it didn't came with the case for the radio face detach frame.
This head unit Is exactly what I was looking for. Bluetooth with two amp outputs all for under 90 bucks! Pioneer delivers excellent clarity with this one. The Bluetooth connects automatically. When I receive or place a call the sound is clear also. The mic that is provided is great. Everyone I talk to says they can't tell I'm not using my phone to speak through.
Pros: Bluetooth, two amp outputs, price, looks.
Cons: Haven't found any.
Excellent unit. Excellent customer service! My daughter loves, loves, loves it! Thank you!!!!!!
For the money you can't get a better stereo, does everything that I need in a car stereo. Features are simply to operate and easy to see while driving. I have Pioneer in 5 of our family's 5 vehicles, this stereo in 2 of them. Buy it you'll like it!
Great stereo. Fit perfectly in my Tacoma. Bluetooth works good.
Pros: Cost and quality
I purchased this stereo mainly for the Bluetooth capability and the Pandora connectivity. Both functions work great and I couldn't be happier with the purchase.
Pros: Bluetooth connection works fantastic, call quality is excellent. Controlling Pandora without having to use my phone is great. Good sound quality.
My new stereo fits perfectly in my 09' Corolla. Sounds great and makes my life easier with the built in bluetooth! People can hear me clearly and install was easy. Definitely would recommend!
Pros: Sleep design, comes with bluetooth.
Decent stereo but it will not pair to iPhone 6 or iPhone 7, the controls and settings are not very easy. Bought this for my sons car and it sounds ok with the new Pioneer speakers but with out being able to pair with his phone pretty much a bust. UPDATED 3/29/17: I would give the unit 4 stars, the tech team was right. I had to clear out the settings and try again. Although it took several attempts the unit finally paired up. The head unit looks nice and the sound is good.
Pros: Sounds ok decent price
Cons: Will not pair to iPhone 6 or 7
I have to say, before I review this product, that Crutchfield has the best customer service that I have ever experienced! I made numerous calls with questions about the install. I was promptly connected to a human being who knew my product and quickly answered my questions. As for the radio...I love it! The install went smoothly and I now have a 2000 Montero with updated technology. I love being able to plug in my mp3 and have access to all my tunes and the bluetooth lets me be hands free ready.
Pros: easy install. great sound. intuitive controls.
This radio does everything and more than I need. It has plenty of functions and everything works well for a price that is very reasonable. I would recommend this to anyone.
Pros: -improved sound quality -good price
Cons: -it feels a little cheap, but it's not a big deal
Great sounding unit. Easy installation. No complaints. External bluetooth mic a bit annoying, wish I would have found a unit with a built in mic. My particular install required a cumbersome line level converter. Again wish I had paid more attention to my situation and found a unit with line level options built in.
Pros: Great sound Easy install
Liked it so much in my daughter's 97 Maxima, I got one for my 2003 Suburban. Being able to upgrade 15-20 year old technology for about $100 bucks is simply amazing, and probably shortly to be a thing of the past given all the touch screen stuff the new cars have. Fortunately, this makes me love the old stuff even more. Love the BT - works better than what's in my wife's 2013 VW. One note, one of them stopped working after I put a new battery in the car - turns out it was the 10A fuse on the back of the radio, not any of the easily accessible fuses in the car. Once I replaced that, there was no apparent damage, so I guess it did it's job.
So far I'm loving my new Pioneer Stereo! I did my homework for weeks to make sure my aftermarket receiver would feature everything I wanted. This fits the bill Perfectly. It's Pretty too.
Pros: Everything! Perfect Fit!
Cons: None so far.
Great unit. Put into an older Honda Accord I got for my kid. USB to charge his iPhone. Bluetooth automatically pairs with his Spotify. Hands free cell phone through car speakers. Everything works great for the money. Why buy some buggy interface for stock radio for double the price?
Pros: Add hands free Bluetooth to older car. iPhone charges and connects via USB. Great with Spotify app.
Awesom stereo I love it
As a first time customer, the support I received has been excellent!! Crutchfield makes it easy to find exactly what you need, in my case it was this Pioneer unit for a 2000 Toyota Avalon (Pronard for the non US markets). My Sales Rep handled my queries and questions superbly and when I had to call Crutchfield to fix an issue with my account I felt as if they knew me personally!! The fact that everything I would possibly need (kit and other fittings) was added at no additional cost made it worthwhile. The sound is really good, the unit has certainly upgraded the look of the car's interior (the black kit blends in with the current interior). Because this replaces the factory unit, it doesn't sit completely flush with the rest of the panel but I am too busy listening to music to really notice this minor detail! Still working on adjusting settings and customizing preferences, but I'm very happy with my purchase and will continue to use Crutchfield for my audio needs!!
Pros: Excellent Customer Support Sleek look Great sound Easy to install
Just got my player!!!thank you so much Crutchfield!!!!!
Pros: Has and just everything a player should do!:)definitely a must!:)simple yet with powerful!great price!considering I got the kit for it as well!!
Works and sounds great. The installation instructions supplied were very good. Installation was easy.
Extremely happy with the Pioneer DEH-X3910BT. The sound is great, the installation and setup easy, and best of all my daughter loves it!
Pioneer never lets me down
Pros: Easy easy easy install
Cons: It makes people jealous
Easy install for the most part. Because my stock radio would turn-on and off even without the key in the ignition (eventually will drain battery and alternator) I had to rig the new harness that plugged-back into the old stock radio (power is needed to illuminate HVAC). The Crutchfield tech could not help me with it which I understand since it would alter their product/harness. I had to use some brain power to see how I could provide the accessory/red only to the stock radio (via new harness) and the continuous 12v/yellow to the new Pioneer radio. It all worked out.
Very capable head unit for the price. Sound preference controls are taking some practice but just a learning curve. Owners manual is poorly arranged but I finally figured out the iphone and android setup. (iphone for calls, BT Android for stored music). I haven't attempted the streaming services yet.
Pros: Great features that actually work. Crutchfield tech support was awesome when I have 2 novice issues.
Cons: Time display is not shown when playing radio. Owner Manual is weak.
Amazing replacement for a JVC. Pioneer is the way to go
Easy install, fast interface and great sound.
Have had this product installed for two weeks now and have no problems with it. The USB input charges and plays music via my Iphone 5C, as well as can connect easily through the bluetooth. The Microphone included for hands free bluetooth calling works great and has plenty of length to make it to the top of the car. Very good system. As an Audio Production Major I am very grateful to have found such a quality system.
Pros: Good Quality Blue Tooth Charging
Cons: Needs More Brightness
Very easy to install as aftermarket stereo. Works and sounds great. Bluetooth connects easily and reliably.
Works really well and connects in under 30 seconds. Only issue that is really a non issue is that I have to re click "Source" until I circle back to Bluetooth Audio in order for it to work even when my phone is already connected, other than that it works great.
Great for the price. Sound is great looks good, only small complaint is the number of folders you have to navigate to change and adjust things.
Great price for the features and Bluetooth works great
Love it! Great improvement over stock radio. Love the bluetooth.
very nice deck love the simple menus. Has a great sound with strong bass, mellow mids and bright high.
Great unit! Bluetooth system works great - sound is just great,as I would expect from a Pioneer
I really like this radio, the Bluetooth works great! If was so easy to install!
Pros: Bluetooth is amazing
Received Head unit as a Christmas present to replace stock unit in a 2000 GMC Sierra. Has worked beautifully so far. No hiccups. Installation was straight forward and didn't take long to complete. Sound is much better than factory unit; very clear using all functions. Not all the bells and whistle but exactly what I wanted. Bluetooth streaming has worked perfectly for my android phone and bluetooth phone has worked very nicely, no hitches. All in all it has been a solid purchase.
Pros: Bluetooth Clarity Handsfree calling Value
My phone is a Motorola Droid Turbo running Android 6, and my car is a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan. Installation went smoothly, and the fit was perfect. My phone paired perfectly via bluetooth, and sounds great. I leave the radio in Bluetooth Audio mode when I turn it off, and all I have to do is turn the radio on and whatever Podcast I was last listening to automatically starts playing. That is, Google Play Music launches itself and starts the podcast even though my phone is locked. (Works like magic for my needs, but your mileage may vary.) Pandora also works well from the radio, automatically launching Pandora on my phone, but I'm not a big Pandora user. Haven't tried Spotify. The radio plays radio stations too! I have a collection of around 800 MP3/AAC music files organized in folders like this: "Music" --> Artist --> Album --> song file. Copied the collection to a USB thumb drive, stuck it into the radio, and yeah they shuffle-play perfectly. It may be possible to select artists, albums, or songs, I dunno. I'm completely happy to let the player shuffle through them, since I can skip any song with a touch of a button. The ability to take and make clear hands-free phone calls is icing on the cake. Have my wife's phone as a preset, so to call her I press three easy-to-reach buttons on the radio. Works great.
Pros: Bluetooth audio and hands-free calling, work great with my Android. Excellent value compared to bluetooth speakers or other workaround to get phone audio into your car.
Cons: Wish there was a way to disable/hide options I'll never use.
Works great just would recommend to anyone
Simple install, syncs easily, sounds great.
Pros: easy install, all the features i had hoped for
Cons: confusing initial set up
This stereo works great. I love the streaming Pandora and using my phone through it. I was reluctant at first, but the mic works great.
Pros: So far the whole thing
Cons: None yet
Great receiver pulls in stations like I thouight it would. Nice sound simple installation, with great instructions. Thanks
This unit works seamlessly with my iPhone 5s. The Bluetooth works very well. The price is reasonable considering all its capabilities. If you own an iPhone, this is a safe purchase for you.
Pros: Seamless synching with iPhone Good sound Nice layout
Cons: Confusing (at first--read the manual :P )
Great stereo - easily installed! Bluetooth and handsfree work amazingly.
A nice receiver all the way around and a fair price. The best part about this purchase was great customer service from Crutchfield.
Pros: Lots of features including BT, sounds great and easy to install
Cons: Learning how to use features takes a little time and reading and the mic for the BT phone is like trying to add a necktie to a T-shirt, just doesn't look right.
Easy install, instructions were okay (not 100% clear in one area about which screws to remove and gave a wrong size- 5.5mm and not 7/32" as instructions stated). Radio sounds GREAT, even on stock speakers. BT calls are very, very clear on both ends. I've tried lots of different genres of music and it all sounds awesome. Other than the minor hiccups with the instructions, the install couldn't have gone better and I'm very satisfied. Definitely recommended.
Pros: BT sound quality Audio quality Ease of configuration
Cons: Minor issues with Crutchfield instructions for this vehicle
Put this in my son's 2006 Ford Escape, he loves the new stereo sound and the Bluetooth features. Easy peasy on the install, Crutchfield supplied all that's necessary parts to hook up stereo to existing speakers and sub woofer. No problems.
Pros: Great Sound, Bluetooth Features, Easy Install
Cons: Lacking Treble and Bass Controls
Great simple radio! Purchased as a gift for Christmas and my dad loved it!
Great product for the price! Simple and relatively easy to install!
this is a great radio, bought for my boyfriend for Christmas and he absolutely loves it.
Install went realy easy. Crutchfield instructions were spot on. Sound quality is nice, such an improvement over stock.
Pros: Easy installation. Sound. Features. Price!
Cons: None yet
Great stereo for the money, easy install, all the parts and wires to fit in the vehicle.
Replacement for factory radio in daughter's 2004 Toyota Corolla. Very easy to install with Crutchfield's kit and instructions.
Pros: Aux input and bluetooth.
Cons: Controls aren't intuitive.
So far so good. This was a replacement stereo for my daughters car. Good quality stereo at a fair price. She is very satisfied with her purchase.
Difficult user interface; wouldn't pair with my iPhone 6...very difficult to use menus and control. Poorly designed car stereo. I wish I'd bought something else with a more straightforward set of controls. Very disappointed with this purchase...
Pros: Under $100
Cons: Poorly designed user menus and controls Wouldn't pair with my iPhone
A nice unit for the money. Extremely easy install.
Great stereo - very easy to use, love the Bluetooth function!
Worked awesome in my brother's Toyota Tacoma. Install was straight forward and easy. Good price for good product!
Pros: Ease of install and price.
Cons: Menus on radio too many. Click after click but tons of them!
Nice unit. Controls for setting up could be easier to operate. Sounds great. Customer service was fantastic for installing.
Excellent price excellent product
Pros: Price, Quality
My factory head unit went bad about 4 months ago, it did not have bluetooth. So I was looking for a better unit with bluetooth. The unit works beautifully and integrates very well with my existing system and gives me many ways to connect to my iPhone. I can connect via bluetooth, via aux in with a mini-plug or via USB. The USB plug allows me to charge the phone at the same time as I use it to listen to music or to make a call. Unit was inexpensive and works well for my needs, plus the sound quality is much better than my factory stereo. Highly recommend this unit.
Pros: Multiple connections, great sound, easy to install. Met my needs perfectly for a replacement car stereo unit.
Simple to use with lots of features.
I cannot believe how easy it was to install this radio. A perfect replacement for my factory radio. Just made driving in my car so much better. I now have all the features my factory rado lacked. Works seamlessly with my Android phone.
Pros: Just a great upgrade. Adding a phone to my car was a great feature.
Cons: Cannot think of any.
Very good product will buy again , good sevice too thank you Crutchfield
Pros: Everything good
It's great!!! Easier to install than I thought. Everything I needed was sent in one box and good directions. I'm very happy with this.
This Head unit is fantastic. I am new to the blue-tooth experience; however, i was very satisfied with the fast and secure connection to my phone (Samsung Galaxy Active). the head unit was very easy to install and fit smoothly into my dash kit for my 2007 dodge caliber. The microphone was easy to install and delivers clear calls at moderate speeds; however, with my car being a hatchback sedan, i have high levels of road noise and said road noise makes it difficult for call recipients to hear you when moving above 60 mph or so. With a high power output, this head unit delivers fantastic sound to all speakers.
Pros: Blue-tooth connection Fine tuning Multi-port amp inputs
Good looking and sounding CD player. Good quality Bluetooth. very happy!!!
A great product at a very affordable price. I have had many pioneer products in my life and they have all been very reliable and lasted a long time.
Better than expected based on the specs. Connection to iPhone w/out any problems, good sound, connectivity and performance for the price. Easy to install TX to Crutchfield's free harness and dash kit.
Pros: Easy connection to iPhone. Better sound than expected. Low price. Easy to use.
Cons: None discovered yet for this price category.
Great receiver......glad I finally update my 2006 vehicle to today's technology. The mic cord was long enough to route from the sun visor and be completely hidden down the A pillar and behind the dash. Phone call sound quality is excellent on both ends. Phone control and Pandora use are a breeze without even touching your cell. Overall very user friendly and well worth the price.
Pros: Great sound, connectivity and ease of use
Cons: Radio signal is a little weaker than factory radio but nowhere near as bad as other aftermarket radios I've had before. Display is a little to dim on sunny day with glare on display.
Was super easy to install, and re radio is awesome
Love this receiver - Easy to install and great sound and lots of features. Phone & ext mic work great!!
Pros: Easy to use!
It works very well.No complaints
Pros: All good
The radio fit perfectly, and was an easy install.
Excellent product, especially for the price.
Awesome receiver! Bluetooth works beautifully. Except that you can only have 2 devices programmed in at a time. If one of your kids wants to connect, one of the devices must be deleted. But it works great - every time I get into the car, it connects and plays automatically where it left off. Bluetooth calling is awesome too. There is a slight echo feedback (caller can hear themselves through the car speakers), but it's not as bad as some others. Easy installation thanks to Crutchfields instructions and dash adapters (although this stuff comes a bit naturally to me). Very satisfied!
Great for the price I just use the Bluetooth and it works fine sounds is good with original speakers in 03 bmw 325xi. Customer support was great and actually had a person to answer my calls will definitely be back again
This receiver works great! - It supports the factory subwoofer in my Mercury Mariner - It connects up via bluetooth to my phone with no hassles after starting the car and starts playing whatever I was last listening to. - The menus are fairly easy to navigate - The controls are laid out well though I wish the buttons were just a bit larger
Pros: connects to my phone every time I turn it on quickly and with no effort on my part.
Cons: Buttons are a bit on the small side
installing this stereo was a breeze, and I love everything about it, love the Bluetooth radio and phone options. this unit sounds great and the price was even better.
Great unit. Bluetooth works great with my iPhone5.
Very easy to install set up was easy the Bluetooth paired up easily connects each time I enter the vehicle the radio receives well
Pros: Bluetooth streaming Easy setup Quick phone button USB front charging Timed display dimmer
Cons: I've found no problem

This pre-detection of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion.

File/Track Name List: The Name List feature displays a list of MP3/WMA/AAC albums and tracks on a loaded CD or connected USB device, so you can easily access your music. Music files are listed first by Artist name, then by Album name, and finally by Song title.
Song/Artist Information: During MP3/WMA/AAC playback, the unit displays any recorded ID3 Tag (ver. 1.x/2.x) and WMA/AAC Tag information; including artist, song, and album name.
Playback Controls: The Pioneer CD receiver provides basic operations like Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, Previous/Next Track, and Repeat/Random for disc and USB device playback.
Auxiliary Input: The DEH-X3910BT is equipped with a front-panel 3.5mm stereo minijack auxiliary input for connecting external audio sources, such as a portable digital audio player.
24 Bit D/A Converter: The Pioneer in-dash head unit utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.
MOSFET Amplifier: The DEH-X3910BT 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.
Note: The power specifications for the DEH-X3910BT are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.
4ch/2V Preouts + Sub Control: The Pioneer DEH-X3910BT features two pair of 2.0-volt preouts (Front & Rear/SW). The unit's Rear/SW preouts can be configured as fading rear-channel outputs or a non-fading subwoofer outputs. When the head unit's RW/SW preouts are configured as a subwoofer output, you can select the frequency of the low pass filter (50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, or 125 Hz), select the filter slope (-12/-24dB), select the subwoofer phase (normal/reverse), and the subwoofer gain (+6 to -24).
Equalizer: The Pioneer DEH-X3910BT features a Preset & Custom EQ. The built-in equalizer offers 7 preset sound modes (Powerful, Dynamic, Vocal, Natural, Custom 1, Custom 2, and Flat) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The two Custom modes allow you to manually adjust the head unit's 5-band EQ (80Hz, 250Hz, 800Hz, 2.5kHz, 8kHz) from +/-6dB. Custom 1 can be set separately for each source, while Custom 2 and the other 5 presets are shared settings used for all sources.
High-Pass Crossover: When you don't want low-frequency sound to be heard through your front or rear speakers, you can simply active the head unit's HPF (high pass filter). By activating the HPF, only frequencies higher than those in the selected range are output from the front or rear speakers. The high pass filter crossover can be set to 50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 125Hz, 160hz, 200Hz or Off. The slope level of the HPF can also be adjusted to -12dB or 24dB.
Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. Hear the detail, warmth, and clarity, the way the artist intended it, from all of your highly compressed MP3 and WMA files stored on your USB, iPod/iPhone, and Android devices. By restoring data (especially higher frequencies) that tends to get lost in the digital compression process, Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever technology enhances audio reproduction nearly all the way up to 20 kHz frequencies
Audio Level Settings: The Pioneer DEH-X3910BT CD receiver offers a variety of audio settings to tailor the bass, treble, and volume level to your preference.
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.
MIXTRAX: Drawing from Pioneer's rich DJ heritage and passion for music, MIXTRAX delivers a unique DJ infused listening experience to listeners in the car. MIXTRAX is an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a non-stop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects. MIXTRAX takes your typical music listening experience and creates a non-stop mix of your music with 3 random DJ effects and transitions, by removing the breaks and pauses normally introduced between tracks and replacing them with various beats. MIXTRAX is compatible with USB-connected iPod/iPhone, USB MSC device, and select Android devices. There is also a Short Playback option which limits the amount of time each track plays; select from 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, or 3 minutes.
Note: The MIXTRAX function does not work in App mode or with the Pandora App for iPod/iPhone, and is not supported by USB MTP devices. The Advanced Sound Retriever function is disabled when MIXTRAX is activated.
Advanced Remote Control App (for Apple iOS & Android): Download the Pioneer ARC (Advanced Remote Control) App onto your Apple iOS (8.0+) or Android (4.1+) device to turn your smartphone or tablet device into a remote control for the Pioneer head unit. Your Apple iOS device can be connected via USB or Bluetooth, while your Android device can only be connected via USB. The following control features are available via the Pioneer Advanced Remote Control App.
Note: If you switch to other applications and functions, such as using other iOS device or Android applications or placing calls from your smartphone, you must restart the Pioneer ARC app on your iOS device or Android device.
Wireless Remote Control: The DEH-X3910BT comes with an IR wireless remote control. The remote allows you to control the volume, switch between sources, pause playback, skip music tracks, change display info, and answer/end Bluetooth phone call. You can also mute the volume (function that cannot be performed from the front panel).
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).
Detachable Face Security: The Pioneer DEH-X3910BT in-dash CD receiver features detachable face security. No face case is included with this unit. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired.
LCD w/ LED Backlight: The DEH-X3910BT features a single-line, multi-segmented LCD with LED backlight that offers a black background and white alphanumeric character text. You can adjust the brightness (1-10) of the display according to the surrounding illumination.
MIXTRAX Illumination: MIXTRAX features a club-style illumination that enhances the mood with a dynamic dance club-like lighting effect. As MIXTRAX begins, lights start pulsing to the beat of the music, adding an extra level of entertainment. You can choose different patterns of lighting variations from sound pressure level or low-pass synchronization modes. The lighting effects work like a spectrum analyzer, reaching peak colors based on the intensity of the music.
Clock Display: You can select between the receiver's clock display or source display. Pressing and holding the "SRC/OFF" button turns off the head unit's audio output, but the clock display and button illumination remains on (you can then press the "D" button to turn off all illumination).
