Pioneer Debuts Range of NEX In-Dash Receivers With Amazon Alexa Built-In at CES 2020
With Amazon Alexa Built-in, Pioneer’s popular suite of NEX aftermarket in-dash receivers is updated to utilize the popular voice assistant for entertainment, communications and more.

At CES today, Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. debuted its newest lineup of flagship NEX in-dash receivers featuring the latest automotive connectivity solutions, including Amazon Alexa Built-in. Available in three different product configurations and three screen sizes, the lineup consists of the 10.1-inch floating DMH-WT8600NEX, 9-inch floating DMH-WT7600NEX, 9-inch modular DMH-WC6600NEX, and 6.8-inch 2DIN in-dash DMH-W4660NEX / DMH-W4600NEX. All five models also feature Android Auto™ (wired/wireless), Apple CarPlay® (wired/wireless), Gracenote Hybrid Radio and location-based live weather and sports, plus a variety of multimedia entertainment capabilities. Further enhancing the large screen UI experience, the 10.1-inch and 9-inch in-dash receivers also feature HD resolution (1280 x 720) capacitive touchscreens.

With Amazon Alexa Built-in, users can talk to Amazon Alexa directly through the Pioneer NEX receivers. With Alexa, you can ask to play music, hear the news, check the weather, control smart home devices, and more. Alexa lives in the cloud, so it’s always getting smarter, adding new capabilities that are delivered to compatible devices automatically. Using Alexa with the NEX receivers is simple and hands-free – just ask, and Alexa will respond instantly.

“The addition of Amazon Alexa Built-in to our NEX in-dash receivers allows us to continue to be on the forefront of delivering seamless connectivity between the vehicle and the consumer’s smart lifestyle,” said Ted Cardenas, vice president of marketing for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “Amazon Alexa allows us to provide a more engaging connected experience, bringing next-level infotainment options to the aftermarket.”
