Any driver looking for a way to upgrade the sound system they enjoy while driving will benefit from purchasing the Pioneer DMH-2600NEX. A superb multimedia Bluetooth car stereo receiver, it will breathe new life into your audio experience while traveling.

Some very careful thought has gone into the sleek design of the Pioneer DMH-2600NEX; it’s beautiful to look at and provides compatibility with many different media options. What more could you want from a stereo receiver?

Offering playback for MP3, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, WAV, AVI, DivX, JPEG and many other file formats, the device is ideal for any avid media consumer, giving you the flexibility you need to have a seamless experience regardless of the file type you favor or the device you’re pulling music from.

What’s In The Box?

Perhaps the most exciting part of any product: unwrapping it!

The Receiver

The most exciting part, of course, is the receiver itself. Slim and shiny, with a 6.8” touchscreen, this is beautifully designed. It should be easy to position on the dash and is very clear, making for a comfortable and easy user experience even when you’re driving in sunlight.

Wire Harness

A pretty crucial part, this allows you to easily connect the in-dash receiver to the vehicle. Its connections include power, speakers, ground, etc. It will keep the unit in place and connect it with the vehicle operating system, ensuring smooth installation and operation.

Bluetooth Microphone

The microphone is a neat little addition to the set; it will let you make safe, hands-free calls while you’re traveling.

It’s got a generous 10ft of wire so you can mount it anywhere you need to in the vehicle, preferably near the driver to maximize its ability to pick up on your voice. It also comes with a generous amount of cable, making it easy to mount up out of the way.

Other Bits And Pieces

  • Screws: you should have a couple of packets of screws which will let you secure the device to the car. Don’t lose them!
  • USB extension: the USB port is on the back of the receiver, so having the extension makes it easier to plug a USB in without wires trailing all over the front of your vehicle.
  • Guidebook: this will help you with installing and using your device. You can also download a pdf to your phone from pioneerelectronics.com if you aren’t a fan of the paper copy or don’t want to keep one in your car.
  • Information on setting the device up with Amazon Alexa and a warranty card.

FAQ

Many drivers are used to being able to use the buttons on their steering wheel to control their in-built CD player, so this is a really useful feature to have built into your new audio player as well.

The answer is yes, the receiver is capable of taking input from your steering wheel control, but you will have to buy a separate device (Axxess ASWC-1 or PAC ControlPRO) to gain this functionality.

The installation is relatively straightforward for anyone with a reasonable understanding of technology. The guide is intuitive and there are plenty of videos online which can also help if you are struggling. Remember that you can download a PDF of the guide from pioneerelectronics.com if you need to.

No, Double-DIN units generally require more space than some vehicles have, so you will need to compare its compatibility options with your vehicle. In some situations, you might be able to purchase a separate installation kit which will make it fit into your car even if it isn’t directly compatible.

Final Verdict

The Pioneer DMH-2600 offers some amazing value at a relatively low price point. It can compete with models at higher costs, and while it may not offer every feature the more expensive options do, it does have a wealth of options which make it highly functional and suitable for most users.

The Pioneer DMH-2600’s dual zone feature and its compatibility with all kinds of phone are two major selling points. It offers great sound for all your favorite tracks and a crisp-clear digital display for any photos you want to project to it.

It has an easy-to-use interface, with the buttons appearing on the touchscreen to make navigation straightforward. Combined with the separate accessory to allow control via the steering wheel, this makes it safer for drivers to use, though they should remember not to look at the screen while on the road; pull over if you need to make adjustments.

All in all, the Pioneer DMH-2600 offers excellent value for money. It doesn’t have all the features of the more expensive models, but it makes up for that with ease-of-use, a thoughtful, elegant design, and flexibility.
