Stellar screen time

Pioneer's AVH-521EX DVD receiver goes beyond the norm with a customizable home screen that's yours to command. Use the receiver's interface to place your favorite sources on the home screen, where they're only a tap away. And you can choose from five stills or two video backgrounds plus a slew of display and control colors to fine tune the look. And thanks to Pioneer's WebLink app, you can access popular apps, like navigation and weather, to your screen with the aid of your phone.

Bluetooth adds a whole level of wireless convenience to my drive — like hands-free calling and easy wireless access to the media on my smartphone. And since I'm an IOS guy, I love how the AVH-521EX supports Siri Eyes Free when I'm in the car. Touch a button and I can listen to and send text messages, place calls, and ask questions, all without taking my eyes off the road.

Your A/V on tap

This receiver covers the bases with CD and DVD playback, an aux input, plus Android™ and iPhone® control via USB. Your inner audiophile will love the FLAC file support for true high-resolution music — up to 192kHz/24 bit. You can get a video fix by watching DVDs when the parking brake is engaged or send the video output to optional rear-seat screens to entertain your passengers on those long road trips. Add a rear-view camera and you'll get a better view in crowded parking lots or backing out of your garage. With select rear-view cameras, you'll even get parking guide lines that curve with the motion of your steering wheel.

Stellar sound quality you'll love

The AVH-521EX rocks out with a powerful amplifier, supported by a versatile 13-band equalizer that tames the rough spots in your car's acoustics. If you're looking for a little more punch, connect an amp or powered sub to the three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs.

Keep your factory features

The AVH-521EX offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included). In a wide selection of vehicles, this module lets you keep factory features that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You'll also be able to check out expanded functionality on the Pioneer's screen, including gauges, climate controls, a distance sensor, and tire pressure and temperature monitors. Once you've identified your vehicle, you'll see the iDatalink module offered on the way to your Shopping Cart if it's compatible.

You'll need a wired connection to your parking brake to access settings and other features on this receiver. Your parking brake must be connected and set in order to view video on its screen.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.
