The AVH-X5500BHS multimedia DVD receiver is ideal for enthusiasts who demand quality without the 4-figure price tag, with features including a beautiful 7″ WVGA motorized touchscreen display, Pioneer’s own MIXTRAX technology, built-in Bluetooth for hands-free calling and audio streaming, an HD Radio tuner, SiriusXM ready, and AppRadio Mode for direct iPhone control.

When using the unit, you’re greeted with an updated user interface that eliminates complicated layered selection displays making operation much less cumbersome, so access to desired functions is smoother and simpler than previous units. A variety of multimedia options ensures that you will be properly entertained. Customizable audio and video functions make it easy to suit your mood.

With built-in Bluetooth (HFP) you can stay safer on the road and enjoy hands-free calling. You can now easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the AVH-X5500BHS without those aggravating pin codes and complicated settings. When a registered Bluetooth device is near the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units. If you have a compatible audio player device that also features built-in Bluetooth, you have the ability to wirelessly stream and control audio to the receiver.

The AVH-X5500BHS features a built-in HD Radio tuner as well, allowing you to enjoy your radio in an all-new way with unmatched fidelity rivaling your digital music collection. FM stations play with CD-quality sound, AM stations with FM-quality sound, and crystal-clear reception with no audio distortion. It offers new extra local FM channels so you can enjoy more music, news, and sports – All without a subscription!

As if that wasn’t enough, the AVH-X5500BHS is SiriusXM Ready so you can listen to commercial-free satellite radio including sports, exclusive talk and entertainment, comedy, news, traffic, weather, and more! A subscription to SiriusXM Radio is required to enjoy this service, but many would argue that it is well worth the small additional fee for such a selection of ad-free content.

With AppRadio Mode for iPhone, Pioneer has taken the technology from our revolutionary, game-changing AppRadio and placed it in the AVH-X5500BHS so you can experience control of compatible apps directly on your dash! When connected to an iPhone using the appropriate interface cable (which is sold separately) and loaded with the free AppRadio application, you can enjoy full on-screen access and control of your contacts, calendar, maps, and more with an intuitive interface, formatted and designed specifically for safer in-vehicle operation.

This unit is also ideal for Pandora users. Enjoy your personalized internet radio experience in your car directly from the touchscreen display of the receiver. In-dash control for Pandora is compatible with iPhone or Android devices, so there’s no need to continuously fiddle with your phone or iPod.
Pioneer’s AVH-X5500BHS offers direct connectivity to your iPod or iPhone for music and video via the optional USB interface cable (sold separately). Song, artist, time and album information are beautifully displayed on the large 7″ touchscreen, along with powerful tools such as Link Search and Alphabet Search to help you find results faster. The system’s wired USB connection provides direct digital signal transfer from the device for clean, clear sound while providing 1 amp of current to keep your iPod/iPhone charged.

You can easily add navigation functionality with the AVIC-U250 add-on navigation system which is a hideaway unit allows you to switch to navigation mode with the touch of a button. Get to your destination by inputting an address or search through the POI library while enjoying whatever source is currently playing.

Select among five colors for the display (blue, red, amber, green, and violet) and 112 different colors to match unit illumination to your vehicle’s interior lighting. Also choose from several background images to suit your mood.
Other features of the AVH-X5500BHS include three sets of hi-volt RCA preouts (4V) for system expansion, an 8-band graphics equalizer, rear view camera input, and an included remote control for convenient operation.

With enough features to keep almost any audiophile satisfied, the Pioneer AVH-X5500BHS offers much of the performance and feature set of higher-end head units without the cost.
