Given the smartphone is now the key add-on for a car radio, Pioneer is announcing its AppRadio-ready car radios work with 16 more Android phones including top models from Samsung, HTC, Motorola and Sony.
You can control apps on the phones directly from the car radio from Pioneer models including the AppRadio 3, AppRadio 2, the AVH-X8500BHS DVD receiver, and AVIC-X950BH and AVIC-Z150BH navigation receivers.
A special kit is required: Pioneer’s CD-AH200C Android Connection Kit. The original Samsung Connector (EPL-3FHUBEGSTD) is also required for the Samsung Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 in addition to the Android Connection Kit.
The new compatible phones bring the total number of AppRadio compatible Android smartphones to over 40.
