Simply download and open the free Pandora Radio app to your smartphone and connect it to the DEH-X3800S and take your music to the next level. iOS devices require a wired connection using the CD-IU51 USB interface cable for 30-pin models (sold separately) or CD-IU52 USB interface cable for Lightning models (sold separately). Android devices need to be paired to the receiver via Bluetooth while the Pandora app is running.

Keep The Party Going!
MIXTRAX® is an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a nonstop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects. Drawing from Pioneer’s rich DJ heritage and our passion for music, MIXTRAX delivers a unique DJ infused listening experience to those in the car. MIXTRAX takes the music from an iPhone, iPod, USB device, or certain Android devices and plays it back with added transitions and effects, creating a virtual DJ inside the Pioneer receiver.
MIXTRAX makes automatic remixing of tracks extra quick and easy. Simply connect your USB compatible device and listen as tracks are joined by various random sound effects in nonstop mix play to keep the groove going in full swing.
MIXTRAX also features club-style illumination that enhances the mood with a dynamic dance club-like lighting effect. As MIXTRAX begins, lights start pulsing to the beat of the music, adding an extra level of entertainment. Choose among multiple patterns of lighting variations from sound pressure level or low-pass synchronization modes.
