Pioneer is one of those brands that needs no introduction. Present on the market for so long as to have become in itself synonymous with an instrument for listening to music in any context, and it was born in Tokyo in 1938.

The sectors covered by the company are innumerable, but perhaps not everyone knows that it was she to launch the first car CD player.

Usually associated with the world of youth, car radios have contributed to strengthening the musical history of our country for many decades. Today, due to new technological paradigms, it seems to have fallen into disuse, since any handheld device allows you always to have a radio and music archive function.

Here we had selected some of the best pioneer double din car stereos that are listed below.

Buyer Guide to Choose the Best Pioneer Double Din Car Stereos

Din, What Does that Mean? 

The term DIN is undoubtedly not in everyday use and therefore could leave you doubtful about what it indicates and generate doubts about the right model to buy.

To dispel any doubts, it is a standard that indicates the space on the dashboard and in which to place the radio. If the housing width is always 7 inches, what varies is the height which, in older car models, was 1 DIN and that in the newer ones is double, 2 DIN.

There is also an intermediate measure between the two (1 DIN and a half), but it is not widespread.

Before purchasing the car radio, therefore, our advice is to consult the booklet of your car to find the correct indication and be sure to have the necessary space for a 2 DIN model.

The 1 DIN car radios, although more dated and less technologically advanced, offer the possibility of removing the front panel so as to discourage the attackers from trying to steal them.

This possibility, except for very few models with a not indifferent price, is precluded to 2 DIN devices which are real multimedia centres and therefore often integrated into the dashboard without the possibility of removing a part.

360 Degree Connectivity

At the top of the list of aspects to consider when choosing the right car and also car toolkit, radio is its versatility, that is, the ability to communicate with other devices to play music and video content.

The models of the best brands, in fact, are often equipped with a monitor on which to view a film (so as to entertain children during the trip) or in any case able to play audio files from different sources, such as USB sticks, smartphones and tablets (via cable or via Bluetooth) or are equipped with satellite navigation.

Carefully evaluate what your needs are and make sure that the model you choose is equipped with all the inputs and wireless technologies necessary to connect with the devices you want to use in the car.

Additional Accessories

To increase the audio experience when you are driving, you can also consider installing an amplifier and additional speakers, therefore check that the radio offers all the inputs necessary to create the system you want.

By comparing the prices, you will notice how the models equipped with displays have a higher cost but compensate for the higher outlay with numerous additional features. For example, by installing a rearview camera, you can use the screen to view the rear of the car during parking.

When setting the budget for the purchase of a 2 DIN car radio, also keep in mind the cost of the installation, unless you are able to do it yourself, knowing that this is not a very simple operation …

How to Use a Pioneer Double Din

With the advent of smartphones, it has become almost essential to mounting a 2 DIN car radio on your car. In fact, this type of device has literally supplanted the classic models that do not allow any interaction with new generation phones.

Difference Between 1 Din and 2 Din

First of all, we believe it is appropriate to clarify because there are many confused people on the subject. The most widespread belief is that 1 DIN car radios do not have a monitor while 2 DIN radios do not. In reality, the real difference concerns the dimensions of the frame, since these are standard sizes.

To be more specific, 1 DIN is equivalent to a size of 180 (width) x 50 mm (height). When we talk about 2 DINs, on the other hand, the height measurement is doubled while the width remains the same. This value simplifies life when buying the stereo, avoiding having to take measures.

Mounting

Assembly is not a complicated operation, and if you have a minimum of familiarity with the manual jobs, supported by the manual, you can complete the task without great difficulty.

However, the best solution is always to contact a specialized technician. As for the installation necessary for the car radio, it is generally found in the package.

Connect the Car Radio with The Smartphone

The best way to connect your Pioneer 2 DIN car radio with your smartphone is to connect via Bluetooth. It’s all effortless, just turn on the car radio, navigate the menus looking for the phone function and add the new device.

Of course, the Bluetooth of the phone, if not already active, must be activated. A message will appear asking you to accept the addition of the car radio, which, of course, you will do. The setup is completed in no time.

From now on, among other things, you can also manage phone calls from the stereo. For example, you can have a very powerful speakerphone, or take advantage of the GPS voice prompts on your smartphone.
