Carplay released for Pioneer NEX systems

Carplay is now available to a much larger audience (not just drivers of the 2014 Ferrari California!) via a firmware update for the Pioneer NEX series. ¬†I’ve installed it on my NEX 8000 in my Subaru Outback, and it’s working quite well. ¬†Pioneer did a great job of integrating Carplay with its own NEX interface, essentially swapping Carplay for the AVIC app system.
