Pioneer's flagship AVIC 8000NEX boasts dozens of media and navigation options -- including the first aftermarket appearance of Apple CarPlay -- but most users will find a better feature-to-cost balance lower in the brand's NEX lineup.
The Pioneer AppRadio 3 is significantly improved over the previous generation and one of the best choices for drivers wanting safe access to smartphone apps while on the road.
For iPhone 4 and 4S lovers, the Pioneer AppRadio 2 is possibly the best aftermarket receiver that money can buy. For Android users, the choice isn't so obvious.
For those wanting a large screen for DVD playback that can have an unobtrusive presence while not in use, the Pioneer AVH-P6300BT is a solidly performing option, especially for iPod/iPhone owners.
Rather than reinvent the wheel, Sony's newest all-in-one car audio receiver pairs a brilliant 7-inch display with GPS navigation powered by TomTom. The result is almost the best of both worlds, but we'd like to see a bit more integration.
Pioneer's AVIC-X920BT not only addresses the core needs of most people, but also it's software is expandable to bring Internet radio into the car, harnesses your media library, and can help you get where you're going as economically as possible.
For users who want to add GPS navigation to their iPod Touch, the Dual XGPS300 is a possible solution, if they can get over the sticker shock.
The Pioneer AVIC-Z110BT not only brings a robust set of features into the car in a single box, but it also provides a variety of quick and safe ways to access those features.
The TomTom One 140 S benefits greatly from feature trickle-down, bringing high-end features to an entry-level model without much price bloat.
