Well known audio manufacturer Pioneer has today announced that they have two new Android Auto head units, with the major announcement being that they’re wireless.

The head units – model #s AVIC-W8400NEX and AVH-W4400NEX – are part of their NEX lineup, with both utilising a double-DIN form factor that includes a 7” LCD display. Additional specs for the head units have not been announced, nor has pricing or a launch date with Pioneer still referring to the units as ‘prototypes’.

Pioneer says that the head units will showcase both wireless Android Auto and Google Assistant, with Google announcing that Android Auto will this week start receiving the full Google Assistant experience – for users in the US.

We’ll be reaching out to Pioneer Australia for more information on the availability and pricing for the two new models, so stay tuned for more on that.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
