Picked one of these up from my local store today..... Well i planned to pick one of these up but the guy in Halfords actually gave me a newer MVX-360BT instead...dunno whether this was due to lack of stock or just an error but i just kept quiet :-)

Note: Reserve online and pick up in store only...can't be ordered online as these are end of line units. It's possible that your local store may only have Ex-display units left...(at least one person has found this) so if this bothers you then best call the store and check what units they have left before travelling

Anyhow...whichever model you get a decent mechless Pioneer headunit for the price of a budget Aldi cheapie is a great bargain in my eyes....

Bluetooth, Aux-in and USB connectivity...NO CD player (But who plays CD's now anyway..)

Here's the bumpf....

Excellent price. I paid £70 for mine and love it.

Mrs has one in her car and it's good apart from when pairing bluetooth with Android you can't change folders from the head unit, only tracks.

you shouldn't need to be changing folders when streaming music from an Android bluetooth pairing...the headunit just outputs the audio from the music player on the phone...

The Phone's music player will already have all the music stored on it indexed regardless of what folder structure it sits in.

Great unit. The hands free is very useful and clear with the separate mic

Does anyone one know if the "separate mic" wired to the unit or wireless?

Wired...it plugs into the back of the headunit.

a wireless mic would need batteries/re-charging etc...not great.

The thought of hiding a cable can be off putting but I fitted an alpine headunit to my car recently and slipping the thin Mic cable behind interior trim was a piece of cake.

Halfords will of course fit for £30 which I know sounds silly when the unit is down to £40 but its peace of mind for those who aren't sure about doing it themselves.

That £30 doesn't include any other parts required for your particular car though. For example I will be fitting the one I bought in my wife's Peugeot 307cc. As this needs extra cabling to accommodate the steering wheel audio controls, parking sensor audio as well as a double to single din fascia convertor the cost of these extra parts is £90....

Yes, but you would need them if you fitted it yourself anyway. Halfords fitting is just the labour.

However, lots of cars or users may not need steering wheel controls, parking sensor audio or din fascia converters. Older or low spec cars usually won't need much extra, if anything.

Bought this exact model and had it fitted yesterday by Halfords. Was a bit fiddly and took 3 of them around 35 mins to fit. Bluetooth is great for calls, had to have an extension cable for 8 quid but that's it. Only gripe is I can't see a way to change bass, treble etc on this model.

I have steering wheel controls but decided against connecting it up.

Can't go wrong for the price.

purchased this last week and haven't had time to post. really good media player. no android support via usb. pioneer do have an android app but it doesn't work on my phone (note 3) bluetooth is fine though. Can access your contacts to make calls straight from sterio. cool but seems a bit pointless if you have a phone cradle. Still can charge from usb obviously. The mic cable was easy enough to hide and works really well. Also has line in. to be honest im surprised at the quality for £40 really good buy. had to purchase faceplate and stalk adapter for my focus which came to £25 on ebay. so £65 all in but we'll worth it imo the reviews are pretty accurate it actually does make your speakers sound a bit better. The radio is a bit crap but I don't listen to pop music anyway so I rarely use a radio. simple as hell to set up. first time I have done this and it really was just clipping sockets in. they are virtually impossible to mess up as each one can only fit it's corresponding socket. youtube has a bunch of how to videos.

does anyone know if this unctions witohut the faceplate? Can someone plug in aux with faceplate off to see if it works? thanks.

How else are you supposed to change albums then? If can't operate your phone when driving as it's illegal! This is the floor with this head unit when using bluetooth streaming via Android.

Illumination stays on, but can be dimmed and left with a static display if that's what you meant.
Not sure I've ever owned a car stereo you could completely turn off display while in use

Reason enough not to get the fitting service - just shows incompetence I'm afraid

Those things constantly distract by flashing and glowing in the corner of your eyes I'm afraid, especially if the stereo is mounted right on the top of the dashboard like in my car.

Reserved one and just got a phone call from Halfords. These are ex-display units hence the discount, so mine comes with a "visible scratch on the display", missing manual and no accessories.

Since these are available for collection only I'd guess that are would be ex-display units with missing bits and scratches or pushed-in buttons. Not so good deal to be honest.

On the topic of 'playing with your phone whilst driving is illegal' - technically so is playing with the radio (and it had been for MUCH longer than the phone thing)

The fact it's not often prosecuted won't re-attach your face when it's taken-off in the accident you'll have **** around with your stereo looking for your phat tunes...

Tip: park, play with phone, drive on again - everyone wins

If you can't press a couple of buttons right next to your vision without crashing, then you probably shouldn't be driving in the first place.

None in stock near me :(

Huge thanks OP, I just went into my local Halfords, there was one left (brand new with all bits) and it said £65 on an orange card - asked them to check price, came up as £30!! Happy bunny :)

Cheers again.

there are certain stereos that come with a "dark" mode that turns the display off and I think this is what they meant. although why you would want to do this is beyond me as no info or any kind of display is there at all then

Press and hold the BACK button on a Pioneer to Manual Dim the display on non Auto Dimming units.

Click down the silver volumes button. You can then scroll left or right by turning dial. Options will be there.

I have an older model of this version

In which case every car radio with Bluetooth has the same flaw. This is how they all work.
The answer is to put your phone in a cradle and it then stops being a handheld device which then makes it legal to operate in the car.
Changing tracks on a phone held in a car cradle is no different to changing tracks on a car stereo.
Also makes the phone useable as a Sat nav device if it's held in a decent cradle. Look up Brodit car mounts. They do one for most handsets.

Reserved at my local store, only to receive a call to apologise because they say it isn't actually in stock. This always seems to happen with big discounted items. I do wonder if Halfords store staff snipe the deal.
