Pioneer has jumped on the App bandwagon with a pair of state of the art in-car digital media receivers that make in car movie watching a breeze. The MVH- 7300 and MVH- 8300 BT have been designed to combine the best of today’s new technology by offering dedicated support for iPhone, iPod, USB and SD media. The 3 inch TFT colour screens provide album artwork, video and a fully customised display to match your dash, whilst Pioneer’s highly rated seven-way rotary commander will let you get to where you want to get to in a flash.
Both units offer MP3, WMA and iTunes AAC music, whilst the MVH-7300 will play back DivX video from a 32GB SDHC card and via the front loading USB slot.
A new App mode will let you experience music and video from iPhone apps such as games, video and internet radio, providing your Apps support analogue audio and video output.
There’s more good news too, because Pioneer has also included an 8 band graphic equalizer and an advanced sound retriever with pre-amp outputs for front, rear and subwoofer to really squeeze the best out of your compressed digital library.
Both units offer exactly the same specs, but the MVH 8300 BT has an additional integrated Parrot Bluetooth module for hands freedom communications using the included external microphone and your cars own speakers.
Both units will available from February 2011
