Pioneer announces new wave of CarPlay-capable head units

As part of CES 2016, Pioneer has announced its latest in-car aftermarket dashboard units with support for Apple's CarPlay. These new units seem to feature primarily iterative improvements, and once again sport 6.2-inch or 7-inch displays.

The AVH-4200NEX, AVIC-7200NEX, and AVIC-8200NEX all feature 7-inch touchscreen displays, with the display of the 8200NEX also being capacitive. The rest of Pioneer's displays, including those found on the AVIC-5200NEX and AVIC-6200NEX, are resistive touchscreens.

Pioneer's suggested pricing for these units is similar to the pricing of last year's models.

  • AVH-4200NEX - $700
  • AVIC-5200NEX - $750
  • AVIC-6200NEX - $900
  • AVIC-7200NEX - $1,200
  • AVIC-8200NEX - $1,400

Pioneer's new head units are expected later this year. The company was one of the first aftermarket stereo makers to support Apple's CarPlay system, which allows people to use many of the features of their phones safely while they're driving.
