Pioneer NEX in-dash receivers support CarPlay with firmware update

Pioneer has announced that a new firmware update enables Apple CarPlay in five of its NEX in-dash multimedia receivers, as it becomes the first company to make an aftermarket CarPlay system available. While the company initially said CarPlay compatibility would be available in “early summer” this year, Pioneer has still beaten nearly everyone else to CarPlay inclusion, including Apple’s automotive partners — Apple quietly changed its CarPlay page recently to withdraw promises to 2014 availability. Pioneer’s NEX receivers range in price from $700 to $1400, and CarPlay will also be compatible with the company’s new $600 AppRadio 4. The firmware update is available for free on Pioneer’s firmware downloads page.
