Amazon currently offers the Pioneer W4500NEX 7-inch Wireless CarPlay and Android Auto Receiver for $499.98 shipped. Also available at Best Buy as well as Crutchfield. Down from $700, today’s offer is good for an over 28% discount, beats our previous mention by $50, and marks a new Amazon all-time low. Wireless support for both CarPlay and Android Auto is the most notable feature included here, as Pioneer’s receiver will pair to your smartphone over Bluetooth. On top of that, a 7-inch display offers plenty of room for keeping an eye on when to take the next exit, and more. Rated 4.1/5 stars.
Update 11/25 @ 1:46 PM: Best Buy’s official eBay storefront is offering the Kenwood 7-inch Android Auto/Apple CarPlay Receiver for $249.98 shipped. Also available direct. This is down from its $400 list price, beats our last mention by $80, and is a new all-time low that we’ve tracked. Rated 4.6/5 stars.
If you can live without the entirely wireless functionality and a smaller screen, there’s certainly ways to get in the CarPlay game for less. Sony’s 6.2-inch CarPlay Receiver will only set you back $248, and brings the in-car Apple experience to your ride quite similarly to the lead deal. Just remember you’ll need to use a Lightning cable to hook things up.
