A Better-Than-Ever Listening Experience
Great music discovery is effortless and free with Pandora. Just start with the name of one of your favorite artists, songs, genres or composers and Pandora will do the rest.
With the AVH-X390BS, you can enjoy superior sound quality and full control of the Pandora experience in your car directly from the touchscreen display of the receiver. You are able to give tracks “thumbs up” or “thumbs down,” bookmark a song so you can purchase it later, easily switch between your personalized radio stations, and view full track data.
Pioneer has made it easier to create new Pandora stations while the app is in use with the Pandora Station Creation feature. Both iPhone and select Android users can simply press and hold a button on the receiver to create a new Pandora station dynamically from the currently playing song or artist.
In-dash control for Pandora is compatible with both iOS and select Android devices. Simply download and launch the free Pandora app to your device and connect it to the AVH-X390BS to take your music to the next level. iOS devices require a wired connection using the CD-IU52 USB interface cable for Lightning devices (sold separately). Android devices need to be paired to the receiver via Bluetooth while the Pandora app is running.
