Default Pioneer AUIC W8400NEX

I am considering this unit for my 07 Z06. I have found some excellent reviews but none from actual owners. I know itís new but I would have thought some corvette owners would have it by now. Thanks

Yeah, I haven't really heard much on it either, I have the 8200 and I think it's an awesome system, from what I've read about the 8400 is that it sounds basically like the 8200 with some improvements in functionality, but not enough for me to justify buying one.

Put one in my 427 vert four months ago; awesome piece of equipment. Also put front and rear cameras; It is nice to finally have Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay available.

I looked at the Pioneer AVIC-W8400NEX on the Crutchfield website .... It states that this navigation receiver does not fit the C6 Corvette

Wonder what the deal is with that ?

I have seen that as well but then I saw where it will work. I am going over to the shop today and will get an answer.

Put the AVIC8400nex in my 06 vert last September. No problem with the fit. Have a Pixel 3 so the Android auto is wireless and automatic. Love it so much I put it in my daily driver.

The shop tells me it’s the same size as the 8200 and yes it fits. They have installed a large number. Pioneer is coming out with an 8500 and the only difference is in the back up camera. The 8400 has red, green lines and they have removed the lines on the 8500. I plan to get this unit within the next month.
