Performance Vauxhall - - GEAR -

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.
