If you are looking to add Bluetooth Audio Streaming and phone mirroring to your Acura this pioneer radio is a great choice. This radio has Bluetooth, USB Media Playback, iPhone Media Playback, an AUX Input, Weblink Mirroring and the option to add a backup camera or an aftermarket subwoofer. What this radio doesn’t have is a CD/DVD player, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, built in GPS, or Sirius XM capabilities. Installing this unit requires you to run a new microphone wire to the visor or other desired location. The USB port is on the face of the radio for easy access to plugging in your phone or USB drive. Our plug and play kit removes the need for any wiring so all you have to do is plug everything in. Our radio kit also allows you keep your factory steering wheel controls, amplifier, speakers and factory navigation in most Acura’s.
Who should buy this radio:
You should buy this radio if you looking for a new touchscreen head unit that can stream Bluetooth audio and play YouTube videos on the go. This pioneer head unit can play back YouTube videos via the weblink app on iPhone and Android phones when the parking break is engaged. Make sure to add a parking bypass to your order if you are planning on using this feature. This radio is very simple and easy to control so if you are new to the aftermarket audio scene this radio doesn’t have a ton of options for you to get confused with but it does have enough options to achieve the sound you want. This also has USB audio playback for iPhone so you can enjoy higher bit rate music through a physical connection.
Who should look for something else:
If you are looking for built in GPS Guidance, Sirius XM capabilities, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto or a capacitive touchscreen this radio is not a good choice. This radio also isn’t recommended for those who want to run a complex aftermarket audio system. This radio works great with the factory audio system in the Acura TL, MDX and TSX but with aftermarket equipment this radio doesn’t have all the recommended settings or high enough RCA output voltage to properly run multiple amplifiers. Installing a subwoofer amplifier is no problem but if you are planning to run a two or three amplifier system then we recommend a higher tier pioneer radio instead.
