Pioneer AppRadio Gets Hands on Treatment

I have been parked in my car on many occasions looking down at the small screen of my iPhone watching Netflix or Hulu. I generally always wish I had a larger screen to watch on. Back in April, I talked a bit about a new radio from Pioneer for your car that has a larger screen for viewing your iPhone apps called AppRadio.

Engadget has gone hands on with that AppRadio and it looks even cooler now than it did before. The AppRadio mirrors your iPhone interface on the radio’s larger touchscreen. I see a few downsides to this though. Apparently, all of the controls are touchscreen. I hate touch controls on things that you will likely be using without taking your eyes off the road.

You will have to look away from the road to change channels and to interact with things on the screen. Another downside is that there are only a few apps that will run on the device right now it seems. You can get Rdio, Pandora, INRIX, and MotionX-GPS Drive. Here I thought it would just show you any app you wanted on the larger screen. The AppRadio screen does support gestures like pinch to zoom. See more of the hands-on in the video clip below:

A video used to be embedded here but the service that it was hosted on has shut down.
