Amazon is currently offering the CarPlay-friendly AVIC 8100NEX head unit for $859.99, almost 50 percent off its listed price.
The Pioneer AVIC 8100NEX has a MSRP of $1,400, though Amazon lists it for $1,699.99. While still expensive, if you were looking to get your hands on one of Pioneer’s more advanced CarPlay units, the sale at $859.99 makes it a little easier.
The 8100NEX, one of a number of new Pioneer CarPlay head units announced last month, features a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display. In addition to CarPlay, the unit also supports Pioneer’s own dashboard system, as well as Google’s CarPlay.
For those that don’t know, CarPlay allows you to connect your iPhone to your car. To do this, you’ll need a device running iOS 7 or later.
As of this writing, there are only four units left in stock, so if you want one at this price, you might want to grab it now.
