The newest addition from Pioneer will carry the technology to your vehicle or truck, even if you are dealing with confined installation place.

Wireless CarPlay continues to make its way into mainstream vehicles and receivers. The company released a similar 9-inch receiver a year ago.

The main push is how Pioneer understands the limitations that many cars have to add an after-market receiver into their dash. From Alexa voice command to Android Auto (wired and wireless), and Apple CarPlay (wired and wireless), everything will be found in the more compact infotainment system.

The modular dashboard integration promises the public that it would have "dash kit packages" for specific vehicles that may not be accepted in regular aftermarket auto shops that offer stereos.

Pioneer's new DMH-WC5700NEX receiver works with wireless Apple CarPlay and has a wider range of compatible vehicles than previous models.

Apart from Alexa voice command, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Pioneer's DMH-WC5700NEX still have a wide variety of features and specs that is essential for specific uses and vehicle multimedia entertainment.

The new receiver sports a 6.8-inch screen and can also play back Hi-Res audio via FLAC file playack. Called the DMH-WC5700NEX, the device is a modular device that brings smart controls - and voice assistants - into a auto.

The receiver's other features include Bluetooth connectivity, built-in HD Radio, SiriusXM readiness, RGB illumination, rear camera input, a HDMI video input for rear seat entertainment, 4V RCA preamplifier outputs, and more.

Pioneer expect the receiver will have a target price of about $600, right in line with the rest of the NEX receivers, and they are planning for it to go on sale in the summer of 2021.
