Best Double DIN Head Units in 2021

#1. Atoto A6 – Best Double DIN Head Unit

ATOTO A6 Android Car Navigation Stereo with Double Bluetooth 2DIN in dashWe have the WINNER!

Wouldn’t you like to get $700 worth of tech for more than half the price? A steal, right?

This is what you’re getting with the Atoto A6 double DIN stereo. It comes with all the bells and whistles that you will ever need without breaking the bank. And if you want the cherry on top, know that Atoto provides top-notch support that is determined to help you, whatever the hiccup might be.

Owning this deck is like having an Android tablet in your car. This is no ordinary device because it has a pre-amplifier built-in, with 4×29 Watts RMS. This means that the music will sound a lot better than with a regular stereo, even if you have stock speakers.

The things you can do with this deck are endless, starting with watching crisp YouTube or Netflix. And of course, you also get access to the Android Marketplace, which allows you to play games.

Overall, it’s not a boring CD player because it beats most Kenwood stereos, hands down.

Besides, if you’re the impatient type, be reassured as it loads fast (in under two seconds). Therefore, it will be on before you even finish putting on your seat belt.

For safe driving, this Atoto device is hands-free, so you can keep your eyes on the road and still manage your deck. Plus, the phone mirroring option is included for FREE. Talk about great value!

Here’s why this head unit earned the first spot:

Lightning-fast boot: It operates in less than two seconds.

It makes stock sound supreme: With the built-in pre-amp, your speakers get a nice boost.

No hype: This deck delivers everything that is advertised, and everything works as presented.

Ultra-responsive screen: Since it’s fast, you can enjoy YouTube or Hulu content, read your emails, or open PDF documents.

Although, I’ve found a few drawbacks that you should take a look at:

Since it’s a foreign head unit, it doesn’t support SiriusXM, and there’s no HD radio option.

Lastly, the customer support is based outside of the U.S., so the typical response time is within 24-48 hours. However, the support team is knowledgeable and will actually help you.

Since the brand is not that well-known, I have only installed it in a few vehicles so far, like in a Dodge Ram 1500, F-150, Honda CRV, and Sprinter van. The owners were amazed by the almost unlimited features.

You can’t go wrong with this double DIN deck. It has everything you will ever need and more. So, jump on the occasion while they are in stock!

If you prefer a familiar brand, check out #2 on the list.

Pros
  • It loads in 2 seconds, flat.
  • It offers a hands-free option, like smartphones.
  • The screen is easy on the eyes. You can read your emails and PDF documents on it.
  • It’s like having an Android tablet installed in your car.
Cons
  • No HD radio; No Sirius XM
  • Support takes 24-48h to respond

 

#2. Pioneer AVH-2500NEX – Best Pioneer Double DIN

Pioneer AVH-2500NEX - Best Pioneer Double DINEven though this Pioneer HUD got second place, it’s a keeper. If you get this deck, you will enjoy driving to work every day.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you happen to read this review, let me share a secret with you: this is the perfect Christmas present for your partner!

Whether your car is older or last-gen, if it has a Double DIN slot, this stereo will work in it. I’ve installed it in some rust buckets, and they drove off with Bluetooth connection and Android Auto or Apple Car Play ready.

If you’re on the phone a lot, you have to know that the Bluetooth is crisp and clean. You will be heard and understood on the other end of the line without any problem.

Hot Tip: If you want to keep your sanity and do multitask with this deck, make sure you get the micro bypass, or you will have to pull over many times, which will get aggravating.

Now, here’s why this HUD is a keeper:

No copilot for texting and calling required: Since you can easily pair your phone with the deck, you can issue voice commands and keep your eyes on the road.

Into the new century without breaking the bank: By replacing your old head unit with this one, you will enjoy streaming, navigation, hands-free calls, listening to your text messages, and much more.

Enjoy commuting again: Even without getting an amp upgrade, you will get a powerful sound and amazing music.

Although, here are a few drawbacks that I’ve managed to find:

There’s one major flaw with these huds: they attract fingerprints like crazy.

Besides, the faceplate is not removable — so it might potentially be a thief magnet — and the buttons seem to be tiny.

Since Pioneer is known and loved by many, I’ve installed it in multiple vehicles, such as a Toyota Corolla, GMC Yukon, Dodge 2500, Honda Fit, Pilot, Nissan Frontier, Prius, and Highlander.

This Pioneer head unit will deliver everything you have ever asked for, so it’s a good choice in my book. Since it’s a popular brand, it’s not uncommon for it to run low on stocks or be sold out. So, make sure you buy your device if it is available at the moment and risk being out of stock for weeks!

Pros
  • The display is nice and bright, and dimmable for night driving.
  • The sound quality is crystal clear and crisp.
  • It will feel like your car is brand new.
Cons
  • It’s not Android-friendly but rather geared toward iPhone.
  • The mirror link doesn’t seem to work.

 

#3. Kenwood DDX26BT – Best Double DIN Radio

Kenwood DDX26BT 6.2" WVGA DVD ReceiverThis Kenwood stereo is for those who value custom sound. The EQ provides different options for all types of music. Plus, there’s a low and high pass filter for subs to get that extra oomph out of the music.

Plus, the touchscreen is modern and responsive, and best of all, customizable! Therefore, you won’t have to stare at icons that you never use.

This Kenwood deck has a built-in amp rated at 22 Watts RMS, which will make the stock system sound a lot nicer.

Hint, hint: this is an excellent present for the man of the house!

Here’re some of its features that you must check out:

High quality without the high price tag: It’s an affordable stereo that offers all the bells and whistles you need.

Boos audio without serious investment: As previously mentioned, this deck has a built-in amp, which will elevate your sound system even if it’s stock.

Bonus: If you buy it today, you are getting some kick-ass Earbuds from Alphasonic for FREE!

However, here are a few things that I’ve found to be wrong with it:

You have to ghetto-rig it for it to fit certain vehicles.

The display could be better. The resolution is only 800 x 480 and is washed out in the sun, even with max brightness.

So far, this is a very popular Double DIN unit that I’ve installed in multiple vehicles, like a Porsche Boxster, F350, Silverado, Ford Escape, Cadillac, Ford Superduty, Crown Victoria, and Nissan Xterra, to name a few.

With this head unit, you will get all the last generation tech you will ever need. People love Kenwood so much that they are buying it up on site. So, make sure you buy this device right away, or you might have to wait weeks on end.

Pros
  • Premium car audio sound at a great price.
  • Offers all the bells and whistles without useless apps.
  • Excellent sound level for 22 watts of power.
Cons
  • It takes some time (30-60 seconds) for it to detect the phone.
  • The USB slot is in the back requires an extender.

 

#4. Alpine ILX-W650 – Best Double DIN Head Unit for Sound Quality

Alpine iLX-W650 7" Mech-Less Receiver Compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
Does the family have both Apple and Android phones?

Then the Alpine ILX-W650 double DIN car stereo will be the perfect solution.

Let me tell you about the sound quality. It’s out of this world. I thought I had to invest thousands to get something half decent. Not anymore with this double din head unit, I’ve managed to get excellent sound quality without breaking the bank.

As I’ve mentioned above, both Apple and Android phones are supported. This means that both Apple Carplay and Android Auto will work.

Here’s the good and bad news. They have eliminated the CD player. So it’s easier to mount and looks modern. Plus with the camera input, you can choose if you want to get a rear camera and/or a dash cam.

There’s only one USB port. To utilize either of the smartphone apps, you need to plug your phone in. It won’t work otherwise. For being advertised as family-friendly, they have dropped the ball on this. Another drawback is the slow bootup. You have to wait around 20s to get it running.

Key Features:

  • Shallow-mount chassis design (2-13/16″ deep), does not play CDs
  • Built-in amplifier (18 watts RMS/50 peak x 4 channels)
  • Outputs: 6-channel preamp outputs (4-volt front, rear, subwoofer)
  • 7″ capacitive touchscreen
  • Works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, hands-free control

With great sound quality, you will be entertained on hours on end. You can do audio streaming and listen to podcasts and audiobooks.

If you’re a fan of satellite radio, then rest assured that this double DIN head unit is SiriusXM ready.

With the installation, you might lose your steering wheel controls. There’s an easy fix to it. This is buying the iDatalink Maestro. With this head unit, you will get all your steering wheel controls plus vehicle diagnosis info.

For all the reasons mentioned above the Alpine ILX-W650 is the best double DIN head unit for sound quality.

Pros
  • Great sound quality
  • Excellent for families who have different phones (Android, Apple)
  • Clean and responsive touch screen
Cons
  • Slow boot up 15-20s
  • The background and colors can’t be customized.

 

#5. Kenwood DMX7706S – Best Double DIN Head Unit For The Money

Kenwood DMX7706S head unit
Who delivers the most features for the best price?

When I was evaluating head units for this category, I checked out these features. My first question was, how’s the display like? With this Kenwood double din head unit, you’re getting a screen size of 6.95”. It’s clear and based on resistive tech. This means it’s fast without lag.

The second question was, how good is the sound quality? My stock speakers sounded a lot better after the new install. My final question what other goodies does this head unit offer?

It has a USB port so you can connect your iPhone or Android phone. This double din head unit only offers wired Android Auto and Apple Carplay. For this price, I’m taking it.

No review would be complete without mentioning the drawbacks. I love radio, and I’ve dearly missed the HD radio feature. Now, if you have an Android phone, getting started with Android Auto will be complicated.

Key Features:

  • Digital multimedia player with AM/FM tuner
  • Built-in Bluetooth for hands-free calling and music streaming
  • Built-in amplifier (22 watts RMS/50 peak x 4 channels)
  • 6.95″ Clear Resistive touchscreen displa, standard USB connection
  • Bass boost and loudness controls

You can personalize the background, but you can’t change the font colors. So make sure you use a nice dark image so the font will be readable. Hopefully, this will be fixed shortly.

If you value safety, then you will love the hands-free calling option. Plus you can mount two cameras. By installing a backup camera (rear camera view) and a dash cam, you will drive and park safer.

The last feature I want to mention is this head unit is SiriusXM ready. You can enjoy satellite radio wherever you’re driving.

 

Pros
  • Finally a fast startup Kenwood head unit
  • It gives extra oomph to factory speakers
  • You can listen to any type of music format
Cons
  • No HD radio
  • Complicated install for Android Auto

 

#6. JVC KW-R930BTS – Best Budget Double DIN Head Unit

JVC KWR930BT Car Stereo - Double Din, Bluetooth, CD,MP3/USB AM/FM Radio, Multi Color Illumination
Do you want gimmicks and fancy apps free stereo?

Do you value high functionality?

Then the JVC KW-R930BTS is the best cheap double DIN head unit for the job.

I know how distracting it is to have a video running in the dash while you’re driving. This is the reason for the law that bans head units doing it on the go.

This double DIN unit looks retro. Wait until you take a peek under the hood. It has everything you need to keep you entertained and safe on the road.

The sound quality is excellent. The speakers perform better after the install. There’s no display so that nothing will distract you. It has an actual volume knob. These are on the endangered species list. So many car stereos have given up on them. The rotary dial also comes with the name of volume knob is the fastest way to change the volume.

Plus, it comes with two USB ports.  There’s a front port and a rear one. I love the front USB because I don’t want to run cables left and right inside the dash. Besides the USB, it has built-in Bluetooth so you can connect up to five phones.

Key Features:

  • ​Front panel High Output USB perfect for Quick Charging
  • Bluetooth enables you to wirelessly stream audio
  • Built-in MOSFET Amp (22 Watts RMS/50 Max X 4 Channels
  • Maximum Output Power : 50Watts x 4
  • Automatic Pairing 2 Phones Full-Time Connection

Here are a couple of drawbacks that I have to mention. It’s not overloaded with functions, yet it’s super complicated. It’s not intuitive by a long shot. I’ve tried to set the time, so I looked up the manual because I didn’t’ manage without it. My old stereo had the max volume level of 50. This JVC double din head unit is limited to 35.

You can’t beat the price; it’s the best cheap DIN head unit on the market.

Last I want to mention that it has a CD receiver, and you can make hands-free calling thanks to the built-in Bluetooth connection. Don’t let the looks deceive you. It comes Sirius XM ready, plus you can change the colors.

 

Pros
  • Intuitive controls
  • Works as advertised
  • You can connect up to 5 devices.
Cons
  • It’s so complicated that you need a manual to set the clock
  • 35 is the max volume level

 

#7. Sony XAV-AX5000 – Best Double DIN Stereo

Sony XAV-AX5000 7" Apple Car Play, Android Auto, Media Receiver with Bluetooth
Do you want elegance and tact without screaming aftermarket?

Then the Sony XAV-AX5000 is the right double din head unit for the job. The first thing I’ve noticed about this Sony digital receiver is that it comes with great buttons. They are a rarity nowadays.

The screen size is 7” and when it’s mounted correctly, it takes your breath away. It’s flush, and who doesn’t know any better, they will say it’s stock. The touch screen is capacitive; thus, it responds fast. The display is so good that it doesn’t attract way too many fingerprints.

It has earned its spot as the best double DIN car stereo. This head unit comes with a built-in Bluetooth connection so you can do audio streaming. Both Apple Carplay and Android Auto works when they are plugged in. As you can see at this price range, you’re getting only wired apps.

Let’s talk about the drawbacks. Some consumers reported that there are issues with Android Auto. There are two ways to fix it one is a firmware update and a high-quality USB cable.

Key Features:

  • Digital multimedia receiver with AM/FM tuner
  • 6.95″ touchscreen
  • Dual USB ports
  • Pandora and Spotify control with iPhone and Android
  • Built-in 4 x 55 W amplification

This double DIN head unit has missing features like HD radio and HDMI output.

My biggest beef with this digital receiver is that the customizations are limited. I want to change the background image, and I can’t.

The Sony car stereo comes with one USB port. Plus, it’s a satellite receiver because it’s SiriusXM ready. For audio streaming, you can use your favorite apps. Spotify Pandora will play your favorite songs.

Once you start Apple Carplay or Android Auto, you can mirror your apps to the Sony touchscreen display.

Pros
  • The elegance that looks great in an older luxury car
  • Fast loading screen
  • Finally a stereo with a great dimmer
Cons
  • Might not work as advertised with Android Auto
  • Missing features: HD radio and HDMI

 

#8. Alpine iLX-207 – Best Double DIN With Backup Camera

Alpine ILX-207 with Alpine Back Up Camera
Do you want to save time when parking?

Then this double DIN head unit might be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Let’s see if the Alpine iLX-207 double din head unit has merit for the highest rated double DIN head unit with a backup camera title.

I’ve been against backup cameras all my life. I thought this was for those who don’t know how to park. Boy, I was wrong. With the rear camera mounted, I can park in tighter spots. Not to mention, I used to circle the block round and round to find a good parking space. Not anymore.

If you have a van or a truck, then having a backup camera is a must.

What else can this car stereo do besides helping me to park?

They have eliminated the CD player, so it’s easier to mount. Also, you can carry more music on a pen drive then hauling boxes of CDs. All you have to do is transfer them.

Key Features:

  • Digital media receiver with AM/FM tuner (does not play CDs)
  • Built-in HD Radio tuner for better AM/FM stations
  • Built-in amplifier (18 watts RMS CEA-2006/50 peak x 4 channels)
  • 7″ capacitive touchscreen VGA display
  • 9-band parametric EQ

Both Android and Apple smartphones are supported. By connecting to the USB port, you will get access to Apple Carplay and Android Auto through the USB is rear input. So you either have your phone in the glove compartment, or you run a wire to the front.

All the favorite audio streaming apps are available like Spotify and Pandora. You can use Google Maps or Waze for navigation. We shouldn’t forget that it’s SiriusXM ready.

All in all, it’s a well-rounded product that has backup camera input plus delivers a lot of entertainment.

Usually, the rearview cameras are sold separately. I’ve finally tracked down a supplier who sells them in a bundle. Check the link below.

 

Pros
  • Finally, it supports Android
  • Modern car with great apps
  • Siri works better in the car than on the phone
Cons
  • The screen resolution isn’t high enough only 800X400
  • No front USB and only one USB port

 

#9. Pioneer AVH-W4500NEX – Best Double DIN Android Head Unit

Pioneer AVH-W4500NEX Double Din Wireless Mirroring Android Auto, Apple Carplay in-Dash DVD/CD Car Stereo Receiver review

Why is this device the best double DIN Android head unit?

To be frank, this car stereo delivers on all fronts. It supports both Android and Apple smartphones. In other words, both Android Auto and Apple Carplay will work. Here comes the tricky part. What about wireless connectivity?

Wireless Apple Carplay is well established. It’s fun to pop in and out of the car without removing my iPhone from my pocket.

For wireless Android Auto, we need to wait. Actually, it works with a few Google phones (Pixel, Nexus). The rest is in Google’s hands. Pioneer can’t do anything until Google doesn’t release a new update. And they are not in a hurry.

All other manufacturers face the same issue. As I mentioned, it’s in the hands of Google.

Besides being the best android double DIN head unit, what else can it do?

It has everything you need to be entertained and safe on the road. Plus, it has two camera inputs. You can mount a rear view camera and a dash cam as well.

Key Features:

  • Built-in Bluetooth for hands-free calling and audio streaming
  • Built-in amplifier (14 watts RMS/50 watts peak x 4 channels)
  • 6.94″ touchscreen
  • Low and high-pass filters with adjustable crossover points

The screen size is 6.94”. Although it’s based on older technology (resistive), it’s still fast to respond.

As for sound quality, it is excellent. The speakers sound way better with this car head unit installed. Let’s talk a bit about entertainment. There’s a Miracast option that helps you mirror your smartphone screen on Pioneer. It comes with all the bells and whistles when it comes to audio streaming.

Spotify and Pandora are standard. It’s SiriusXM ready so that you can enjoy satellite radio.

 

Pros
  • Finally a wireless Carplay and Android soon to come
  • You can have your custom background and splash screen
  • Sensitive radio picks up a lot of stations
Cons
  • Takes time for Android Auto and Apple Carplay to start
  • The buttons are tiny they are not soft

 

#10. Pioneer DMH-1500NEX – Best Bluetooth Car Stereo Double DIN 

Pioneer DMH-1500NEX Digital Media Receiver with 7" WVGA Display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Built in Bluetooth

Is Pioneer the best?

There were many head units for this spot. After sifting through them, I’ve picked the winner.

The main reason why I’ve chosen this Pioneer double din head unit was the built-in Bluetooth connection. It’s the best one which I’ve seen. Both Android and Apple smartphones are supported. You can get wireless Apple Carplay and wired Android Auto. For some reason, Google takes its sweet time to support Android phones.

With the help of these two apps, hands-free calling is super easy. Since we’re talking about hands-free calling, I have to mention a drawback. Did you know you can get texts read to you? Now somebody had the bright idea to show you the progress of how the texts are ready.

Key Features:

  • Digital multimedia receiver with AM/FM tuner
  • Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming
  • Built-in internal amp (14 watts RMS/50 peak x 4 channels)
  • 7″ LCD touchscreen, standard USB connection, AUX input
  • 13-band graphic equalizer and time alignment

This is defeating the purpose of having hands-free control. Since we’re talking about drawbacks, I have to mention that there’s no HD radio. I love CD-quality radio. Also, I want to mention that you can’t shut off the screen, and it listens to the music that way. During night drives, it’s a good feature to have.

This head unit isn’t the fastest on the market; you need to wait a few seconds to boot up. Lastly, the backup camera doesn’t come on automatically. You have to click it from the menu.

Besides these drawbacks, the Bluetooth connectivity is rock solid. Siri Eyes Free works like a charm. You can compose text messages without touching your phone.

 

Pros
  • It can bring older cars into the modern era
  • The screen is big and can be dimmed to your liking
  • Beats the stock stereo every time.
Cons
  • You can’t shut the screen off
  • No HD radio
