Pioneer AVIC-5000NEX Doesn't Have An HDMI Port; Uses RGB Input For AppRadio Mode

Pioneer's NEX receivers are different from one another in small but significant ways. I am still trying to find out what the major differences are, which in-turn will explain why the prices differ so much.

Take the AVIC-5000NEX for example. This receiver is the fourth in line among the NEX receivers and one major difference is the absence of an HDMI port.

So how will the AVIC-5000NEX support the iPhone 5 and above?

Using the RGB input (CD-IV202AV kit and Apple Lightning to VGA adapter required). For CarPlay though, you will use the USB port to connect your iPhone 5 and above using only one lightning USB cable.

As usual, Pioneer does not include any cables with their receivers and these will have to be purchased separately.

Take a look at this RGB connection diagram from Pioneer below...

The other major difference is that the AVIC-5000NEX has a 6.1 inch screen (like the AVIC-6000NEX). More details are coming soon so stay tuned. I am working on making a table to show the major differences between NEX units so watch out for that.
