6.2″ Touchscreen Display
This MVH-AV290BT comes with the intuitive and well-reviewed NEX user interface that you will quickly be able to get to grips with, and it uses a fantastic display thanks to the use of a 6.2-inch TFT active matrix driving unit that’s ideal for keeping track of your playlists while you’re behind the wheel. It also comes with a nice dimmer setting as well as a brightness control, and the resolution of 800 x 400 pixels is certainly very impressive at this price point.
Great Audio Playback Features
In terms of playback audio features, the unit is fully compatible with Apple iPhone 6 and above, although you will need a USB lightning connector to get it set up. It’s also compatible with iPods, too. The MVH-AV290BT also features an intuitive and easy-to-use Equalizer that comes with several nicely designed presets, along with a graphic band equalizer that gives you unrivaled control over your music playback. Of course, the presets are also very reliable, so you don’t have to get too technical if you do not want to.
Importantly, the Pioneer MVH-AV290BT offers built-in Bluetooth technology that allows it to make great use of audio streaming services, and it can also be used for hands-free talking as well. Fortunately, you will find that it works with practically any modern cell phone that’s Bluetooth enabled, and it also has a long communication range of just under 33 feet.
Overall, this is a handy unit from a top brand that will fit nicely into most vehicles and give you fantastic playback of your digital media. Also, remember that this is a digital multimedia receiver and does not play CDs.
