The Pioneer’s AV4200 NEX is definitely a heavyweight contender packed with media-rich features. But we were let down a little by the poor user manual that ships with the stereo.

Manual aside, the head unit is still rich in features including well Apple Car Play and Android Auto system support. Making this one another popular choice for smartphone users in particular. Add in the HDMI input and we are talking about some serious entertainment features.
The AVH4200 NEX is a good choice for the safety conscious driver too. It’s easily fitted with not one, but two cameras--one at the rear and an optional second, perhaps fitted to the front bumper.
Although it weighs in at the high end of the price range, it’s obvious the large, bright 7-inch TFT screen is being put to excellent use by the clever mix of practical and entertainment abilities of the unit.
The slightly more expensive AVH-4200 NEX differs from the AVH-4100 NEX (which we’ll cover below) in its smart device communications, adding the DataLink Maestro service to give extra control over steering wheel controls and voice commands. While the smart device owner also gains the ability to use both CarPlay and Android Auto through the same USB port.
