Unboxing The Pioneer AVH-4100NEX: Review Part 1 [Pictures]

Three of Pioneer's five second generation NEX head units are Android Auto compatible. Out of those three, the entry level AVH-4100NEX, gives users an affordable option to get the latest in-car software in the vehicles they already own.

Pioneer sent me the AVH-4100NEX for review a while ago and I finally got it installed. I have been testing and building up a full review on it out ever since. Although that full review is still a few days away, here is the unboxing of the head unit. Plenty more to follow.

This is what to expect when you purchase a Pioneer AVH-4100NEX...

Summary: If you are an Android user and want to get Android Auto in the car you already own, the Pioneer AVH-4100NEX may be your best option. For one thing, it is the least expensive option available at the moment. But don't let that lower price fool you. The device has robust features for connectivity and entertainment that make it a frontrunner in its price bracket.

Along with Android Auto, the AVH-4100NEX is Apple CarPlay compatible. Although cheaper CarPlay options are available via the Pioneer AppRadio 4 (SPH-DA120) or the Alpine iLX-007, the AVH-4100NEX is the newest generation device with an improved NEX interface. More details on that will be available in my full review.

Price: The suggested retail price of the Pioneer AVH-4100NEX is $700. But online retailers like Amazon and eBay consistently offer lower prices. Sometimes savings can reach 25%. Check out these latest low prices and click on the affiliate links below to be taken to the listings. 

Buy on Amazon: $522.00

  1. Does it recognize a USB sound card and output sound through it? Or can I get digital audio through the HDMI connector?
