When it comes to car audio systems, no company has quite as much clout as Pioneer. As makers of high-quality stereos and sound systems, Pioneer is something of a gold standard for Head Units.
With that being said, the AVH-290BT is one of the company’s more simplified and streamlined models.
This unit doesn’t come with as many extra features as other stereos, but the quality is there, and the functionality is superb.
First off, the display screen on this unit is easy to read and has an excellent response to your touch.
At 6.2 inches, you have plenty of screen space to see everything you need, including the time, name of the song and radio station, and even a display screen so you can adjust common features such as the clock and DVD playback.

The resolution of the screen is also excellent for the size, meaning that you can see everything with immense clarity.
Another fantastic feature of this Double DIN Unit is that it can connect to your phone via Bluetooth. That way, if you want to listen to your music or take a call, you can do so quickly and easily without having to worry about dropping your phone or being distracted.
