    Anyone have Pioneer app radio experience. Sounds very cool, but I assume I would need a separate amp. What Do y'all think? I have a eclipse avn right now and want better iPod. Integration.

    I dont have the AppRadio Head Unit, but i do have a Pioneer AVHP4300DVD. I thought I was getting an Appradio compatible head unit but I should have done more research, it does have an "App" mode which allows you to view any program with video output capabilities but you cannot use the DVD player as a touch screen like as you would when watching a DVD with this head unit, you will have to touch your ipod to advance/start videos. But all in all I really like pioneers ipod integration. The ipod mode is great at navigating your music collection using the touch screen so I dont miss what i dont have I guess. Good Luck with your shopping

    Oh and as for a separate amp, my head unit drives my doors speakers and does a decent job of it, while I have an amplifier for the sub. Im not sure about other Pioneer head units but mine has a setting to make the rear doors speakers subwoofers which is nice to handle the midrange

    Any new updates? I've been watching videos about the first one and i'm wondering if the 2nd version fixed some of the functionality with menus and such.

    i put one in GF 2011 xB. i think the only down fall to the app radio, u have to manually have ur fone connected to use all features/apps on the head unit. also tried to do the parking brake bypass relay trick. didnt really work, so i need to put in a real switch to make signal work.
