The control panel is very well designed even for larger motorized persons or those with larger hands. In addition to this, this Autoradio has a very large and clear display, on which everything is uncomplicated at any time of the day. However, it is the display "only" kept in black and white, which is perhaps for the one or other user initially not quite as appealing. The clarity of the display does not, however, obscure this, but rather on the contrary.The simple writing on the display makes it all the quicker to recognize everything and is not distracted.  

Technical equipment

The technical equipment of the Pioneer MVH-170UI Autoradio is very solid and has in principle also all necessary things, which are nowadays needed with an Autoradio.
