When using an iPhone with the 2012 Pioneer DVD Receiver models that feature built-in Bluetooth, the iPhone will prioritize the last connected source for audio output. For example, if the iPhone is plugged into the Pioneer iPod cable (CD-IU51V, CD-IU201V or CD-IU201S, varies by model) before the Bluetooth pairing process is complete, any audio from the iPhone (Music/iPod, Pandora, etc.) will be transmitted through the Bluetooth Audio connection. This will result in having control of your music on the headunit but no audio output. If the Bluetooth pairing process is completed before the iPhone is plugged in, audio from the iPhone will be transmitted over the dock connection cable.
To ensure seamless operation of Music/iPod and Pandora audio playback through the dock connection cable, we recommend allowing the Bluetooth connection to complete the pairing process BEFORE you connect your phone to the Pioneer iPod cable. This allows the Pioneer DVD Receiver to completely control switching between sources without any additional iPhone settings changes needed by the user.
If you want to switch back and forth between the BT connection and the dock connection, you need to choose the audio source from the Music/iPod screen on the iPhone.
