The DEH-X6600BS, DEH-X6600BT and DEH-X4600BT offer Bluetooth capability for hands-free calling as well as music streaming. When used with a compatible iPhone, Pioneer receiver models incorporated with Bluetooth support Siri Eyes Free for a safer and more convenient smartphone experience. With Siri Eyes Free users can utilize the power of voice control to make calls, select and play music, hear and compose text messages, get mapping information, listen to notifications, and add reminders.
To simplify the Bluetooth pairing process with iPhone devices, both models feature Auto Pairing utilizing a physical USB connection. Users simply connect the iPhone to the Pioneer receiver using an iPhone to USB cable and the receiver automatically prompts the user to confirm pairing, eliminating the need to go through the wireless "searching for devices" process.
Both models can store pairing data for up to three phones with the ability to quickly pair/add a new phone using Pioneers Guest Mode feature. With Guest Mode, the receiver prompts the user to choose which of the three registered phones to replace if an attempt is made to connect a new device.
In addition to USB connectivity with iPhone and iPod devices, flash drives and thumb drives, the new 2014 CD models can be connected using the integrated USB port to Android devices that use the USB Media Transfer Protocol for music playback. This new compatibility enables basic controls (Play/Pause/FF/Rev/Random/Repeat) and the display of song/artist/album and time information when used with a compatible Android device.
The single CD receiver offerings are available with suggested retail prices starting at $90.
