Pioneer is one of the kings of car stereo, but the company has been looking for new ways to enhance how you and your car interact—and how your car interacts with your gadgets and specifically your smartphone.
Pioneer's AppRadio, which put your iPhone and car audio system in harmony with one another, is now available for $400. The companion app has also been updated to include access to the iPhone's Contacts, Calendar and Photo apps.
You want to play music from your iPhone when you're in the car. You want to control everything from the in-dash head unit. Rarely do these two pieces of hardware work together in harmony, even if we wish that was the future of all car stereo systems everywhere. Pioneer's AppRadio might just change that.
