Who should buy this radio:
If you want wireless Apple CarPlay or wireless Android Auto this radio is for you. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are great companions for long trips providing you with guided navigation from Apple Maps, Google Maps or Waze. This radio is also great for someone who wants to enjoy Bluetooth audio and use a capacitive touchscreen to control their music. You can easily add a backup camera or aftermarket amplifier for subwoofers to this radio as well. This radio is easy to control it doesn’t have a ton of options to get confused with but it does have enough advanced audio options to achieve your desired result.
Who should look for something else:
If you are looking for built in GPS Guidance that doesn’t require a phone connection or for the ability to play CD/DVDS this is 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 with 4v Preamp outputs instead.
