If you’re one of the few people who have a Double DIN opening in your vehicle, you will definitely want to get the most out of it. Why waste space with a single DIN if you don’t have to? Pioneer has designed the perfect head unit to expand your car stereo system and provide superior sound quality all at the same time. The Pioneer Premier FH-P800BT is a Double DIN In-Dash AM/FM, CD and MP3 Player. This unit is unique because it does not have a screen like most Double DIN receivers. Don’t think of this as a bad thing, because this unit is packed with features! By not having a LCD Display, you will be able to keep a factory OEM look to your vehicle’s dash. The clean design and rotary knobs keep operation simple while trying to locate favorite songs or make changes to the system.
One of the many exciting features the FH-P800BT has is built-in Bluetooth. Pairing your device is extremely simple and can be used to set-up three Bluetooth compatible cell phones. And with the phone pairing option, you can transfer your entire phonebook at one time into the head unit. This means that it can memorize up to 3600 different phone numbers. Your phone calls will come in crystal-clear through your vehicle speakers with the advanced echo cancellation. When you’re not using hands-free calling, Bluetooth can be used to control and stream wireless audio straight from the receiver. Along with built-in Bluetooth, this receiver comes with an iPod direct cable. By plugging the cable into the USB Input, you will receive direct connection allowing you to search for artist and other information directly from the head unit.
There are a few expandability options that can be added to this receiver to make it complete. This includes Sirius and XM Radio and even HD Radio. These items can be used when installing your new receiver. By adding these optional accessories, the FH-P800BT will be perfect for your vehicle.
