The Pioneer MVH-P8200 is a mid-range to high-level head unit for car stereo systems and is touted as being "mech-free", meaning it has no mechanical parts. Primarily, this means that the MVH-P8200 has no CD player. However, it has a variety of more modern interfaces such as a USB port for iPod/iPhone and other USB devices and an SD card slot. It also comes equipped with HD radio, for a high-quality radio experience; of course this means it is Sirius and XM satellite radio ready. The MVH-P8200's 3" TFT Display provides a large graphical interface for iPod/iPhone use and will even display images and videos.
The MVH-P8200 can directly interface with portable media storage devices such as USB sticks and SD cards for playback of a variety of music file types. Its iPod/iPhone functionality goes a bit further, allowing for a search interface as well as iTunes tagging, which allows you to tag a song heard on the radio for later download on iTunes. The MVH-P8200's HD radio promises CD-quality FM radio and FM-quality AM radio as well as a stronger signal for clear reception without any necessary subscription. Additionally, the MVH-P8200's 3" TFT Display can display any number of video media files as well as jpeg files for a true AV experience.
