    Wi-Fi Certified Miracast™ provides additional wireless connectivity, enabling seamless display of multimedia content between compatible devices and the Pioneer receiver².
    Now you no longer need to worry about taking your smartphone out of your bag or your pocket before you get into your car.
  • Android Auto
    The AVIC-W8500NEX also features Android Auto, which extends the Android platform into the car in a way that’s purpose-built for driving. Android Auto automatically brings you useful information and organizes it into simple cards that appear just when they’re needed. It’s designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road ahead.
    Android Auto is compatible with Android phones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or later. Android Auto may not be available on all devices.
  • Apple CarPlay
    The AVIC-W8500NEX features Apple CarPlay, the smarter, safer and more fun way to use your iPhone® in the car. Apple CarPlay gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, listen to music, and verbally send and listen to messages with just a word or a touch. Apple CarPlay requires iPhone 5 or newer with the latest version of iOS.
  • Dual Back Up Camera Input Ready
    Dual Back up Camera inputs enable you to add a reverse (rear facing) camera and front facing camera that can assist with front and rear visibility, towing, or parking.
  • Future of Navigation
    In addition to the Q2-18 mapping and turn-by-turn directions to a large database of Points-of-Interest, such as restaurants, gas stations and ATMs,. Pioneer's built-in navigation models offer detailed, reliable traffic and route guidance information to help you get where you want to go.
  • Hands-Free Calling and Audio Streaming
    Stay safe and obey local hands-free laws with built-in Bluetooth (HFP). Easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the AVIC-W8500NEX without having to go through complicated settings. When a registered Bluetooth device is in proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units.
    From hands-free calling, wireless audio streaming (A2DP) with artist, album, and song search, simple pairing, and control audio (AVRCP profile), Bluetooth® wireless technology has made life in the vehicle much more convenient.
    The AVIC-W8500NEX with Bluetooth also includes superior call quality reception using Wideband Speech Handsfree Profile 1.6. Wideband Speech nearly doubles the bandwidth of frequencies of a normal Bluetooth call (when compared to calls without Wideband Speech).
    Other features include the ability to browse music libraries on smartphones wirelessly.
  • A Better-Than-Ever Listening Experience
    Pandora is personalized internet radio that is designed to help you discover new music that you'll love mixed in with music that you already know. With the AVIC-W8500NEX, you can enjoy superior sound quality and full control of the Pandora experience in your car directly from the touchscreen display of the receiver. You are able to give tracks "thumbs up" or "thumbs down," bookmark a song so you can purchase it later, easily switch between your personalized radio stations, and view full track data and album art.
    Pandora is compatible with Apple iOS, as well as Android devices that support the Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP). Simply download the free Pandora Radio app to your iPhone or Android device, connect to the AVIC-W8500NEX and take your music to the next level.
  • Power of Siri® Eyes Free
    Users of an iPhone® with Siri can take advantage of Siri Eyes Free functionality. With a simple touch of the NEX touchscreen, Siri starts listening through the NEX unit's external microphone and answers your questions and requests over the vehicle's speakers, helping you keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.
  • Navigate with Confidence
    The AVIC-W8500NEX offers a comprehensive map database from HERE® covering the entire United States (including Alaska and Hawaii), Canada, and Puerto Rico, enabling users to route to millions of destinations.
    As a component of the Naviextras feature, the AVIC-W8400NEX ensures that you have the most recent map database available for this receiver at the time of purchase.
    Customers who purchase Pioneer NEX products from authorized Pioneer dealers are eligible to update to the latest available map database free of charge during the first 45 days of operation (from the unit’s first receipt of an active GPS signal). To update the map database, visit Naviextras' website to download the Naviextras Toolbox.

    Your love of high-res audio does not need to stop at the front door. Enjoy FLAC files in your vehicle without the need to convert. Pioneer's NEX in-dash receivers were the first in the industry to offer playback of files encoded as high-res FLAC up to 192kHz/24 bit and provide playback output at CD quality. With Pioneer, your high-res FLAC is no longer confined to your home hi-fi system - put your music on the move.
