Pioneer Electronics USA has introduced a new SPH-10BT single-DIN in-dash receiver that uses your smartphone as its display. The receiver features a built-in smartphone cradle that rotates. Once your device is placed in the cradle, it becomes 'visually combined' with the SPH-10BT.

Pioneer Smart Sync transforms compatible iPhone or Android smartphones into a high-resolution LCD in-dash display for Pioneer Smart Sync driving functions when paired with select Bluetooth-enabled Pioneer audio and digital media receivers, including the SPH-10BT. This powerful combination provides both a larger display for the user interface and touch control for simpler and more intuitive control of the in-dash receiver.

“The single-DIN chassis size is almost universal, with the ability to be installed in both older and newer vehicles. However, given its compact size, a single-DIN receiver often lacks a large touchscreen or the ability to integrate well with the smartphone,” said Ted Cardenas, vice president of marketing for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “The SPH-10BT offers a very unique solution by integrating the smartphone both electronically and physically.”

The SPH-10BT is also compatible with Pioneer’s ND-PS1 rear parking sensors. When connected with the sensors installed in the rear vehicle bumper, the SPH-10BT provides audible object warnings and visual indicators on both the in-dash receiver and the Pioneer Smart Sync app.
