Best Buy Is Still The Only Place To Buy AppRadio 2

AppRadio 2 (SPH-DA100) only available at Best Buy
Pioneer's AppRadio 2 was made available for purchase on April 6, 2012 in the United States. Pioneer mentions the device can be bought from 'Authorized Dealers' only. A dealer search on Pioneer's website brings up just one major retailer in most areas. Best Buy!

I purchased my AppRadio 2 from my local Best Buy on launch day for $499. Last year though, I purchased my AppRadio from Amazon. The second-generation device isn't available for purchase on Amazon yet. Even a search on eBay brings up no results. So for now, the only reliable place to purchase AppRadio 2 in the US is Best Buy. 

You can also purchase it from your local car stereo shop. My local car shop has the device on special order only. They don't keep it in stock because 'the demand isn't that great'. A couple of other online retailers have the device on pre-order. Crutchfield, for example, mentions that the estimated shipping date is 4/17/2012. Others like Abt Electronics and Appliances don't mention any date. 

AppRadio 2 will be available at more retailers in the coming few weeks. For now though, a buyer's choices are limited to Best Buy.
