Pioneer Electronics announced AppRadio 2 (model SPH-DA100), an in-dash iPhone 4/4S and Android compatible 2-DIN car receiver with 7-inch capacitive multi-touch screen, built-In Bluetooth for hands-free calling, and on-screen access to compatible smartphone apps.

Pioneer’s new AppRadio 2 contains all the features of the original AppRadio, while expanding compatibility to now include many of the latest Android smartphones equipped with either the Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) or a micro HDMI connection. This expansion means the AppRadio 2 supports both of the most popular smartphone platforms and provides a solution for integrating these devices safely and easily into the vehicle. The AppRadio 2’s capacitive touchscreen is a larger 7-inch size, but like the original, enables control of supported functions using similar touch and motion gestures of the connected smartphone device. For safety and convenience, AppRadio 2 features built-in Bluetooth for hands-free calling, an input for an optional vehicle-mounted rear facing back-up camera, an input for interfacing with the vehicle’s steering wheel controls3 and two sets of pre-amp outputs for connection to external amplifiers.

Pioneer’s AppRadio 2 features a clean and simple aesthetic with minimal physical buttons, as the majority of the functions and controls are operated via the high resolution WVGA (800 x 480) 7-inch capacitive touchscreen. This capacitive touch panel is used for all functions including the app interface, music control/playback, AM/FM radio, and Bluetooth hands-free calling features.

As with the original AppRadio, the AppRadio 2 features a built-in AM/FM tuner with RDS text information display (when available) and full control/playback of music stored on the connected smartphone device. Safe, in-vehicle phone functionality is simple with built-in Bluetooth, enabling hands-free cellular phone operation using the car’s speakers and the included external microphone to turn the car into a rolling speakerphone.

The free Pioneer AppRadio application enables access to the data and connectivity of the connected smartphone and compatible third-party apps.

Price and Availability
The Pioneer AppRadio 2 (SPH-DA100) will be available in April 2012 for $499.
The original Pioneer AppRadio (SPH-DA01) will also continue to be available for $399.
