Pioneer AVH-211EX Multimedia Receiver with Bluetooth
Pioneer AVH-211EX is equipped with built-in Bluetooth 3.0, allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles.
Multi-Device Pairing Dual Phone Connection
Up to 3 Bluetooth-compatible devices (2 phones/1 audio player) can be paired to this head unit. You are even able to keep two Bluetooth-enabled smartphones connected at the same time, so you can switch between phones from the head unit’s touchscreen, without having to connect or re-connect devices.
Hands-Free Communication (w/ External Mic)
The PioneerAVH-211EX supports wireless hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. Thanks to the latest Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.6) with wideband speech capability, the AVH-211EX provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls. The AVH-211EX allows you to carry on a phone conversation from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone using the head unit’s external microphone and your car audio speakers. During a conversation you can adjust the volume, as well as switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode.
Wireless Audio Streaming
The Pioneer AVH-211EX also supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone. The head unit can stream music stored on your Bluetooth enabled device or music apps you have downloaded on your device. When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call.
iPhone Direct Connect
The Pioneer AVH-211EX’s rear-panel USB port can be used to connect your Apple device with Lightning connector to the head unit. You’ll need a Lightning-to-USB cable to connect your Apple device with Lightning connector. The USB connection allows for audio playback, music navigation, information display (including album art), and charging of your compatible iPhone or iPod.
Apple Music Radio
You can playback Apple Music Radio on your USB-connected Apple iOS device through the Pioneer AVH-211EX. With a WiFi or cellular connection, you can listen to Beats 1 and other live radio stations. Apple Music subscribers can also listen to on-demand stations for every genre or create their own stations.
