Pioneer Europe (March 1st, 2020) – Pioneer’s modular SPH-EVO receivers allow existing cars to be upgraded to the same level or higher than even the top OEM trim levels, enabling features such as a larger LCD screen, smartphone connected navigation, DAB Digital Radio and more.
Starting from now, a new flagship 9-inch version has been added to the modular receiver range, produced on an entirely new platform. This flagship Wi-Fi® enabled SPH-EVO93DAB features a modular design combining a large touchscreen display with a hideaway control unit that installers can tuck into separate compartments of the automobile, providing vehicles with limited dash space a premium upgrade solution for drivers’ entertainment needs. The new receivers feature smartphone connectivity – Android Auto™ (wired) and Apple CarPlay™ (via wireless connection) -, voice commands (Alexa built-in), as well as entertainment features such as Spotify®, Bluetooth® streaming, Wireless Mirroring for Android, Hybrid Radio and FLAC file playback.
Further enhancing the large screen UI experience, the SPH-EVO93DAB also features HD resolution (1280 x 720)capacitive touchscreens.
With Amazon Alexa Built-in, users can talk to Amazon Alexa directly through the Pioneer SPH-EVO93DAB receiver. With Alexa, you can ask to play music, hear the news, check the weather, control smart home devices, and more. Alexa lives in the cloud, so it’s always getting smarter, adding new capabilities that are delivered to compatible devices automatically. Using Alexa with the SPH-EVO93DAB is simple and hands-free –just ask, and Alexa will respond instantly.
Same as the 8-inch SPH-EVO82DAB and the 6.8-inch SPH-EVO62DAB, the new 9-inch SPH-EVO93DAB can be fitted to cars where this was previously impossible. “We understand many drivers prefer an even larger display including wireless smartphone connectivity and voice command features” said Geert Verhoeven, Multimedia Product Manager of Pioneer Europe NV. “Our new 9-inch SPH-EVO93DAB modular receiver allows almost every car to be upgraded with a big screen, as well as the latest infotainment technology at your fingertips. With Alexa Built-in, you can voice-command your receiver while keeping your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.”
Lastly, this modular receiver is Navigation Ready, meaning you can add a hide-away unit1 in order to have in-car navigation; including a comprehensive map database from HERE® covering Europe, enabling users to route to millions of destinations.
