Get Yourself CarPlay-Ready With The Pioneer AVH-4000NEX [Amazon Deals]

Pioneer announced earlier this week that they will make five of their latest head units CarPlay capable starting early this summer. This is by far the cheapest way to get Apple's latest technology in your car. And the least expensive of all the compatible head units is the AVH-4000NEX.

Amazon has the lowest price (see after the break) for the head unit among online retailers (and even big box stores). First, some more details about the AVH-4000NEX.
