SPH-10BT

Pioneer Smart Sync Smartphone Receiver Featuring Built-In Cradle for Smartphone, Built-in Bluetooth® - Audio Digital Media Receiver

 

Pioneer's SPH-10BT, the perfect match for today's on-the-go lifestyle, offers a new approach to smartphone connectivity. Simply mount your smartphone¹ in the built-in cradle², then connect (either wirelessly or wired,) to the Pioneer Smart Sync app³ and enjoy a smarter connected driving experience. Specially designed for easy use, the SPH-10BT features direct access buttons that work with the Pioneer Smart Sync app to bring multimedia capabilities such as navigation, hands-free calling, messaging, and voice-command to a single-DIN receiver.


¹Smartphone sold separately.
²Do not use the built-in cradle if your smartphone would cover, obscure or block indicators (lamps) relating to vehicle system status and operation, such as Passenger Air Bag, Air Bag Malfunction, Anti-lock Braking System and Electronic Stability Control (ESC). Use an appropriate alternate mounting device to secure the smartphone in a location that does not block indicators, controls or vents, violate the law, or cause a hazard.
³The SPH-10BT is designed to be used only with the Pioneer Smart Sync app on a smartphone mounted securely, safely, and legally within your vehicle. Any other use of the smartphone while driving may be dangerous and violate the law.

Availability of non-Pioneer content and services, including apps and connectivity, may change without notice due to changes in operating systems, firmware or app versions; changes to, restrictions on or discontinuation of the service or service plans; non-Pioneer hardware changes; or other events.

Pioneer Smart Sync provides you with intuitive app-based features like:

  • Alexa Built-in
  • Maps
  • Voice Messaging

Bluetooth logo

Hands-Free Calling and Audio Streaming

Stay safe and obey local hands-free laws with built-in Bluetooth (HFP). Easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the SPH-10BT without having to go through complicated settings. When a registered Bluetooth device is in proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units.

From hands-free calling, wireless audio streaming (A2DP) with artist, album, and song search*, simple pairing, and control audio (AVRCP profile), Bluetooth® wireless technology has made life in the vehicle much more convenient.

The SPH-10BT with Bluetooth also includes superior call quality reception using Wideband Speech Handsfree Profile 1.6. Wideband Speech nearly doubles the bandwidth of frequencies of a normal Bluetooth call (when compared to calls without Wideband Speech)**.

Other features include the ability to browse music libraries on smartphones wirelessly.

*Search functions vary by phone.
**Call quality depends on wireless provider’s support of HFP 1.6.
