PIONEER AVH-Z7100DAB HEAD UNIT
We feature a fair number of multifunction head units with touchscreen display and a bazillion different forms of connectivity to car and mobile devices, yet we’re regularly asked by you lot if there’s a similar solution that doesn’t require the dash of the host vehicle to have double-DIN hardware. That’s a fair question. After all, many of our readers pilot older cars with single-DIN holes in their dashboards, which is why it’s reassuring to know Pioneer is on hand with the AVH-Z7100DAB, a single-DIN component with a motorised seven-inch touchscreen which neatly folds away inside the body of the unit at the touch of a button. Or a screen! As ever, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are native to the Pioneer range, as is Waze and full-blown navigation functionality when paired with a smartphone. Bluetooth, DAB and MOSFET 4x50W output power with auto multi-band EQ and slick handsfree control of linked mobile devices make this a cool piece of kit not to miss.
