LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CES – Today at the CES 2021 all-digital experience, Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. debuted the DMH-WC5700NEX, the latest Pioneer modular solutions in-dash receiver that expands its lineup of products designed to provide vehicles with limited or restricted dash space an in-dash upgrade solution.
The DMH-WC5700NEX includes Alexa Built-in, Android Auto™ (wired/wireless), Apple CarPlay® (wired/wireless), plus a variety of multimedia entertainment capabilities. The 6.8-inch touchscreen DMH-C5700NEX is similar in design and features to the 9-inch DMH-WC6600NEX introduced in 2020, but with the ability to fit a wider variety of vehicles including traditional 2DIN applications.
Since the introduction of the first Pioneer modular solutions in-dash receivers in 2019, Metra Electronics® has introduced several dash kits and fully integrated dash kit packages designed to integrate the modular solutions products, including the DMH-WC5700NEX, into specific vehicles1.
Due to the modular form factor and availability of two different optional extension cables2, the DMH-WC5700NEX is also suitable for fully custom installation by an installation specialist, further expanding its application to an even wider range of vehicles when compared to traditional in-dash receivers.
“With the DMH-WC5700NEX, Pioneer provides an automotive upgrade solution for many different vehicles that typically have been extremely restrictive or even impossible with regard to the installation of an aftermarket in-dash receiver, including several popular late model Chevrolet vehicles such as the Silverado and Camaro,” said Ted Cardenas, vice president of marketing for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “With this solution, owners of these vehicles now have an option for adding Amazon Alexa, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and more to enhance and upgrade their driving experience.”
The DMH-WC5700NEX also features Hi-Res Audio playback capability, FLAC file playback, 13-band graphic equalizer, time alignment, 4V RCA preamplifier outputs (front/rear/subwoofer), Bluetooth® connectivity for audio streaming and hands-free communication, built-in HD Radio™ capability, SiriusXM Ready® (requires SiriusXM tuner and subscription, sold separately), RGB illumination, rear camera input, HDMI® video input for rear seat entertainment and more.
