The Pioneer brand is at the forefront of innovative audio and video technology and the AVH-X1800S is a notable example. Its foremost selling point is the MIXTRAX technology, which allows users to become their own DJ using their in-car dashboard and by creating a non-stop mix of their music library from a wide range of devices from iPods and iPhones to USBs and Android devices.
Think of it: You can add effects and transitions, make automatic remixing of songs, and keep the music going in full swing, all with a single device. Just plug in your USB compatible device and start swinging.
The MIXTRAX technology also adds club-style lights to enhance your music experience with the lights pulsing to the music. You can choose from several lighting patterns including sound pressure level and low-pass synchronized modes.
The AVH-X1800S is compatible with iPhones & Android devices, with the help of its AppRadio Mode. You have full onscreen access and control of compatible applications from your dashboard including your contacts, calendar and maps, thus, allowing for safer in-car operation, not to mention that you can add more features and functions using many popular in-vehicle applications.
You also have the option of tapping into the huge music library of Pandora, a personalized online radio that provides plenty of opportunities to add to your existing tracks. You will find the superior sound quality and full music control from the 6.1-inch touchscreen display to your liking while your ability to vote tracks (thumbs up and thumbs down) will make for an engaging experience every time.
Other features that make for great music experience are faster content search via the Alphabet Search and Link Search functions, higher quality digital signal transfer for superior sound, and even longer battery power as your Apple devices are charged (1 amp of current) while hooked up to the unit.
