HANDS-FREE CALLING AND AUDIO STREAMING

 

From hands-free calling, wireless audio streaming with artist, album, and song search, simple pairing, and voice recognition, Bluetooth® wireless technology has made life in the vehicle much more convenient. The FH-X820BS with Bluetooth also includes better call quality reception using the new Wideband Speech Handsfree Profile 1.6. Nearly doubling the bandwidth of the frequency helps bring call quality similar to FM reception.

The FH-X820BS features Dual Bluetooth and “Guest Mode”.  Dual Bluetooth allows two phones to automatically connect when in the vehicle to easily make and receive calls and stream music from both phones. Guest Mode allows a user to add and replace a third mobile device instantly to the receiver. Guest Mode is a great feature for a family vehicle with multiple drivers or a driver with multiple devices because it allows users to pair and delete devices easily without a lengthy registration or deletion process.

Other features include the ability to browse music libraries on smartphones wirelessly. In addition, iPhone Bluetooth pairing allows the user to connect an iPhone via an appropriate USB cable to pair with the FH-X820BS; it's that simple. This feature is great where there are multiple devices active and you are trying to search for and connect to a certain device

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MIXTRAX is an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a nonstop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects. Drawing from Pioneer’s rich DJ heritage and our passion for music, MIXTRAX delivers a unique DJ infused listening experience to those in the car. MIXTRAX takes the music from an iPhone, iPod, USB device, or certain Android devices and plays it back with added transitions and effects, creating a virtual DJ inside the Pioneer receiver.

MIXTRAX makes automatic remixing of tracks extra-quick and easy. Simply connect your USB compatible device and listen as tracks are joined by various random sound effects in Nonstop Mix Play to keep the groove going in full swing.

MIXTRAX also features Club-Style Illumination that enhances the mood with a dynamic dance club-like lighting effect. As MIXTRAX begins, lights start pulsing to the beat of the music, adding an extra level of entertainment. Choose among multiple patterns of lighting variations from sound pressure level or low-pass synchronization modes.
