Ratings and Reviews
Lots of issues
Contact list import does not import in alphabetical order and is not sortable. Also, the voice search cannot seem to find anyone in my contact list which Siri has no problem finding. Also, when using the navigation (I use Waze) the route audio updates do not play when I'm listening to another input. Other head units typically switch inputs to play the audio and then back to the previous input, ideally just attenuating the current input and allowing the audio from Waze to play over it would be best.
Edit: found the audio control for navigation. It's under settings - navigation - guidance volume. I had to add+4 to hear it. Problem is of you're at least listening to the radio, the radio volume doesn't attenuate, so you really just get a jumble of audio. Still nothing with the contact list, probably going to contact support.
Ok so my first review was a 1 star because the app needed an update for ios12. Well now pioneer has fixed the issue and the app is amazing. So much easier to navigate the options (biggest is the equalizer). I am happy with my (now 4 month old) stereo.
Here is what I’ve learned. If you depend on the app working with your stereo unit 100% of the time then I advise you not to update your phone until smart sync updates too. I was running ios11 when I first bought my stereo and it worked. I updated the phone the following day and it would crash every time after that. I realized the app and iOS12 weren’t compatible so I used an older phone to tune my system.
Mixed good and bad...
The good: it no longer crashes when I open it and phone alert sounds play through the receiver even when I’m listening to the radio or some source other than my phone.
The bad: EVERY time I start the car I have to grant permission for the app to communicate with the stereo.... EVERY TIME... I would think granting it once would imply that it’s okay for the foreseeable future to keep connecting.
