Pioneer AVH-Z7050BT 7" Single DIN Apple CarPlay Android Auto Bluetooth Full HD
Pioneer AVH-Z7050BT In-Dash Single DIN Multimedia Receiver
with 7" WVGA Touchscreen Display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, AppRadio Mode +, Built-in Bluetooth and Full HD Video Playback from USB Device
Pioneer recently introduced its Z-series head units as part of its 2018 Audio & AV release. At the top of the Z Series is the Pioneer AVH-Z7050BT. Pioneer has not forsaken those of us who are stuck with single DIN's. It has all you can ask for in a head unit, and then some. Only the flagship AVH-X8850BT trumps this unit by means of HDMI, Dual Zone and SD Card inputs which isn't available on any of the Z series models. If those are a must, then look no further and get the legendary AVH-X8850BT. However, if you can forego those shortcomings, then the Z series features a 24-bit True Color Panel display which we hope will be the norm on future Pioneer models. Let's dive in.
- Enhanced smartphone connectivity for today's mobile lifestyles made more compatible with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and AppRadio Mode +.
- Fully refined "Simple and Easy"-inspired interface provides more flexible, easy operation and more engaging user experience.
- Superior in-car AV performance with 24-bit True Color display panel, Full HD video playback form USB thumb drive, and select Pioneer-tuned audio parts.
"I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT MY SMARTPHONE"
We hear you. The Z series is keeping up with the needs of the current generation who likes to be connected all the time by making it easier and safer while driving. Listen to messages and reply by speech, make calls, navigate, stream music and much more without having to take your eyes off the road and your hands off the steering wheel. Can't live without Waze? Luckily Pioneer has you covered with the support of the Waze App in AppRadio Mode. This model also works with Spotify meaning you can control the Spotify app from the receiver. Millions of songs at your fingertips. To summarize, there are basically 3 ways to integrate your phone, depending on the device you have of course. There is Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Pioneer's very own AppRadio Mode which is available for both Apple and Android devices.
FULL HD VIDEO, FOR REAL!
We have our doubts whenever we hear "Full HD". If I had a dime for everytime that word has been misused, then I would probably not be sitting here writing this. I'd be sitting on a beach somewhere in the Carribean sipping Mojito's instead, while writing this of course. This time though, Pioneer isn't playing around. Full HD playback from USB device in various file formats are supported. WMV, Xvid, H.264, H.253 and MPEG-4 can be enjoyed in full 1920 x 1080 splendour. This is definitely a welcome addition since the Z series also features a 24-bit True Color Panel display. That's up to over 16 million colors, meaning you will experience higher-resolution images with greater range, smoother gradiations and richer tones of color than ever before from a car receiver.
MAJOR UI IMPROVEMENTS
Pioneer has revamped its UI in the Z series in an effort to improve user experience and improve safety. The last thing you would want is a bad user interface while driving. One touch source switching, customizable display and easy app switching helps make the usage more intuitive. The uncluttered AV interface is a step in a good direction. Bye bye clutter.
SOUNDS AS GOOD AS EVER
We don't really have much to say except Pioneer has always delivered in the sound quality arena. Much to our pleasant surprise, the Pioneer Z series also features a 3-way Network mode which allows for greater flexibility in audio setup and tuning. Audiophiles will definitely love this.
OPTIONAL ADD ONS
Besides the built-in features, this AVH-Z7050BT also allows for additional accessories such as the ND-BC8 reversing camera, the GEX-1550TV Analog TV Tuner, the GEX-1750DVB2 and GEX-2850DVB2 Digital TV Receiver. You can also add an aftermarket GPS Navigation module via the RGB connections which would allow for Navigation directly on the receiver itself.
