Back-Up Camera Input Ready*
Back-Up Camera input enables you to add a rear-view camera, with the system automatically switching to a full-screen image of the rearview when the car is placed in reverse gear. The full-screen image returns to the source screen last in use when the vehicle is taken out of reverse gear.
*Rear visibility systems (backup cameras) are required under federal regulations in certain new vehicles according to a phase-in schedule that began on May 1, 2016. Owners of vehicles equipped with compliant rear visibility systems should not install or use this product in a way that alters or disables that system’s compliance with applicable regulations. If you are unsure whether your vehicle has a rear visibility system subject to these regulations, please contact the vehicle manufacturer or dealer.
Second Camera Input
The AVIC-W8600NEX has an additional input where you can add a second camera. The second camera view can be activated at any time and has many potential uses including monitoring a tow vehicle, providing a side view for better lane visibility, or as an alternate rear view if the vehicle’s backup camera view isn’t available.
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.
*Search functions vary by phone.
**Call quality depends on wireless provider’s support of HFP 1.6.
