Unboxing the Pioneer DMH-W4660NEX

In the box of Pioneer’s DMH-W660NEX, you will find:

Wiring Harness

The first thing we’ll be working with is the wire harness. When installing an aftermarket radio, the wire harness is used to connect power and ground from your car’s original in-dash receiver over to any speakers.


Bluetooth microphones are used for hands-free Bluetooth phone calls. It’s typically installed up near the driver and it comes on a wire about ten feet long, if you need a very flexible installation that is easy to install without any wires involved!

USB Type-C Extension Cable

The USB port on the back can be reached with ease and convenience, as they include this extension so you don’t have to remove your seatbelt or climb over anything in order to access it. You’ll also feel less cramped up front because there’s more room for things like groceries!

GPS Antenna

The built-in GPS antenna, even though it doesn’t have navigation, still requires a separate one for proper operation with Android Auto and Apple Carplay Wireless.

Phone swapping

One of my favorite features about the Universal Remote app (especially since I’m married with kids who each have their own) is that it allows me not only see what they’re watching on Netflix but also take over for them by pressing buttons while letting other members learn how do use technology responsibly – like turn off screens when done using apps etcetera.
