Update (9/3 @ 12:05pm): Amazon has further lowered the price the Pioneer 7-inch Wireless CarPlay/Android Auto Receiver (W4500NEX) to $536.79 shipped.

Amazon is offering the Pioneer 7-inch Wireless CarPlay/Android Auto Receiver (W4500NEX) for $549.44 shipped. That’s $150 off the going rate found at retailers like Best Buy and beats the lowest price we have tracked by $10.

Not only will this receiver deliver wireless CarPlay, it’ll also bring wire-free Android Auto ensuring that nearly any mainstream smartphone will be ready to roll with it. A built-in DVD player serves as yet another backup that’s handy for keeping passengers entertained. Rated 4.5/5 stars.
