Question: Which Pioneer Car Stereos Support AppRadio Mode Through Android?

I received a question from one of our readers recently which I think should be answered here for the benefit of all. Here it is...

I have an HTC Evo 4G LTE running Android 4.0.4. I'm looking at getting a Pioneer system for my car but want to be able to use apps on it from my phone. Do you know which Pioneer models have this feature for my phone? Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

The following Pioneer products have AppRadio Mode and support Android connectivity (pictured left to right above).

1. AVH-X8500BHS
2. AVIC-X950BH
3. AVIC-Z150BH
4. AppRadio 2 (SPH-DA100)

The AVH-X8500BHS is a DVD receiver so it can play your CDs and DVDs in addition to the AppRadio mode. The AVIC models are designed mainly for navigation but also support AppRadio Mode. AppRadio 2 does only AppRadio mode in addition to basic radio features. For prices, visit your nearest Pioneer dealer.

A list of compatible Android phones that support AppRadio Mode can be found here.
