We’re a fan of Pioneer head units – they are very reliable, well built and cost effective.

The current chip shortage can make units hard to obtain, so do contact us to see what is available.

We normally recommend the Pioneer SPH-DA250DAB, which is a unit with a nice capacitive touchscreen, a decent amplifier, supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a nice amplifier. However these are unavailable until later in the year, so we recommend the Pioneer SPH-DA230DAB, or the SPH-DA160DAB which has a slightly smaller screen.

Pioneer SPH-DA230DAB Highlights

  • 7″ WVGA Clear Type Touchscreen
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto
  • DAB+ radio alongside FM/AM
  • RGB Colour Customisation (210,000 Colours) for buttons etc
  • MOSFET 50W x 4 maximum power output
  • Bluetooth telephone and audio streaming (HFP/A2DP/SPP)
