New Pioneer Stereo with Car Play

So my wife bought a new car recently and I was pretty jealous of the blue tooth and handsfree calling. Went to Car Toys and treated myself. I'm pretty happy so far. Works very well. Now I have GPS, Blue Tooth, I can say "hey siri call..." and she'll do it for me. Call quality is good. Pretty fun upgrade and cheaper than a new car.

This is a 2009 by the way.

Hey there,
I'm not sure of the model number or where it came from. It's silver. I just took the car to a Car Toys and they did the rest. When they ordered the dash kit they just said it was coming in from Seattle. Hope that helps!

Hey thanks. It was about $780 altogether. Took them about 3 hours. I think the unit itself was 399. They added a USB port next to the power outlet down by the cup holders. Looks real good

One more question. Not sure how all of this works. But for the navigation you use your phone that in turn is sent via Bluetooth to your dash unit ? GPS is not part of the dash unit like the factory unit ?

Hey no problem. GPS is not part of unit. When I plug the phone into the unit with the USB it automatically switches to Apple CarPlay which uses Apple Maps which will display on the unit. So far it works really well. There are some good YouTube videos out there that demonstrate it.
