EFTM Best 2015 – Best In-Car Entertainment : Pioneer with Apple Carplay & Android Auto

When I had a Pioneer car stereo installed in my trusty little Mazda 2, it was awesome.  Touch-screen, easy to read, and so much better than what the car came with.  Then they upgraded the firmware to support Apple Carplay – that was fantastic.  So how do you go one step further?  Android Auto support of course.

As soon as it was available I had the unit swapped out for one that was compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.  This means that a household with multiple mobile operating systems could share the car and enjoy the in-car entertainment as they should be able to.

While most people would use one or the other, when you need the other – it’s there.

Android Auto and Apple Carplay are not products of Pioneer, and they battle head to head with Android Auto probably pipping Carplay on function, but gee wiz it’s a close battle.

Pioneer brought them both to cars – the car you own now – so no need to lo0k at a new Ferrari to get your Carplay fix, or a Hyundai for both, you can keep your current car and upgrade the stereo.

The experience is excellent, and Pioneer have done it very well.
