View Full Version : Pioneer avic D1 help

Hi I'm looking to buy a new head unit for my car. I was looking mostly for bluetooth audio but if I'm gonna upgrade I'm gonna UPGRADE lol

Short story is I'm most likely getting an iphone soon and I'd like to have BT audio in my car. Right now I have the stock subaru 6 disk changer in my wrx and I've seen the touch screen units installed in these cars and they almost look factory. Plus you never know when navi will come in handy. So I looked on my local craigslist and I found the Pioneer avic d1 for 350. I called the guy up and he said it had no BT. I know that you usually have to buy the BT antenna(?) separate anyway but he didn't know if it was compatible with this unit.

So any help on this? Can I buy BT for this? Will it even work well enough to be worth the money?

you want a newer unit that is designed for BT streaming so you can even get Pandora controls on the HU.

for $350, you can get a nicer used unit. i think his price is high.
here is the manual:

from the manual and the compatibility charts for Pioneer wireless BT adapters, i don't think it is compatible with the IP-Bus Bluetooth adapters.

350 is too much for a d1...i like the newer models and the d1 had the 2 drives so the nav works better on it but it doesn't play dvds
