It's where I had purchased mine from and where I've purchase several radios from. Always arrives new in box with the seals still attached. Although again there may be someone on here who is letting theirs go..

I'm debating between the AVIC4200nex or the AVHX5800BHS. Is CarPlay the "cats meow"?

I personally plan on buying a 4200NEX when I stop being lazy and pull my credit card out. It really all comes down to buying what suits your needs. You could even do a 4100NEX and get what I feel is your moneys worth. :)

For not a whole lot more than the 4200 or 5800, I'm selling my unused/refurb 8100NEX:
http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/car-audio-classifieds/319458-fs-pioneer-avic-8100nex.html

Just tossing it out there.
I looked at this several times, I'm having trouble ponying up the cash for the 4200. So your 8100 is too much for me(although a great price). I wasn't gonna do an aftermarket HU in the first place but have changed my mind. I'm struggling with even spending the money since my build is already over budget.
Like it would've been under though.:laugh:

If you're that worried about money try the 4800bs. I love mine. Obviously losing some functions but it's half the price.

I can't decide if CarPlay is worth $200. The USB interface looks good without it too.

Spotify and pandora work great imo. Plus, if I need navigation I just open google maps on my phone before leaving, start it, then it plays music fine until she gives me directions, she mutes the music, tells me where to go, then unmutes the music.

I tried to fidget with the pioneer app but hated it.

I have the 5800 in my wife's minivan and I took a trip yesterday and today so have used it quite a bit recently, primarily with Pandora. I have hooked it up via BT but switched to USB so that I can get my phone charged at the same time. Plus, my wife has a phone cradle to the right of the steering wheel so I'm usually using that, especially with Google Maps. I haven't used the Carllay version so can't compare the two so I'll just give you an overview of the 5800 with an iPhone 6S+. Pandora on the 5800 gives a list of stations or genres that you can select. Seemed to work pretty well but it is just a simple nested list, nothing fancy graphically but it works. When listening to Pandora, the song, album, and artist info are shown with a small picture of the album cover (usually/always?), which is actually pretty nice. With using Google Maps in the foreground and Pandora in the background, directions would be announced over the stereo as well. Overall, I was pretty pleased with how well Pandora worked with the 5800.

The primary difference that I saw between the 4800 and 5800 was that the 5800 has an HD radio tuner. At first I was really happy with it since the reception was so good way out at my parents house where I installed it for my wife as a Christmas present. Over time, we've noticed parts of songs on the radio repeating, which is actually when a weak digital station is switching between digital and analog. Unless you live in a major metropolis with quite a few strong digital stations, I think I'd pass on the 5800 and go with the 4800.

For my car I'll probably just go with the 4200 assuming the CarPlay interface is that much nicer. But if I got a good deal on a 4800/5800 again, I'd have no problems sticking with that radio as overall it is really nice.

Hope this helped.

Thanks for the input! I actually went down to Car Toys tonight and tried them all out. I am gonna go with the x4800 unless Sunday ads have the 4200 really cheap(I mean cmon it is and old model...lol) I don't think CarPlay is worth the extra money for me right now. It's a great idea. I just don't use the apps it supports.
