Hands-Free calling and Audio Streaming
From hands-free calling, wireless audio streaming with artist, album, and song search, simple pairing, and voice recognition, Bluetooth® wireless technology has made life in the vehicle much more convenient. The DEH-X6800BT with Bluetooth also includes better call quality reception using the new Wideband Speech Handsfree Profile 1.6. Nearly doubling the bandwidth of the frequency helps bring call quality similar to FM reception.
The DEH-X6800BT features Dual Bluetooth and “Guest Mode”. Dual Bluetooth allows two phones to automatically connect when in the vehicle to easily make and receive calls and stream music from both phones.
Guest Mode allows a user to add and replace a third mobile device instantly to the receiver. Guest Mode is a great feature for a family vehicle with multiple drivers or a driver with multiple devices because it allows users to pair and delete devices easily without a lengthy registration or deletion process.
Other features include the ability to browse music libraries on smartphones wirelessly. In addition, iPhone Bluetooth pairing allows the user to connect an iPhone via an appropriate USB cable to pair with the DEH-X6800BT; it's that simple. This feature is great where there are multiple devices active and you are trying to search for and connect to a certain device.
A Better-Than-Ever Listening Experience
Pandora is personalized internet radio that is designed to help you discover new music that you'll love mixed in with music that you already know. With the DEH-X6800BT, you can enjoy superior sound quality and full control of the Pandora experience in your car directly from the touchscreen display of the receiver. You are able to give tracks "thumbs up" or "thumbs down," bookmark a song so you can purchase it later, easily switch between your personalized radio stations, and view full track data.
In-dash control for Pandora is compatible with iOS and Android devices. Simply download and open the free Pandora Radio app to your smartphone and connect it to the DEH-X6800BT 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.
Pandora Station Creation – The Pandora station creation 5 feature enables users to create new Pandora stations while the app is in use with an iPhone device (physical connection required) or compatible Android smartphone. Users can simply press and hold a button on the new receivers to create a new Pandora station dynamically from the currently playing song or artist.

Android Music Support
Users of Android devices running operating system 4.0 or later can connect and listen to music stored on their device to the DEH-X6800BT without the need for an app. The process is made possible using Media Transfer Protocol (MTP).

Users can now access music via USB stored on an Android device and operate basic operations like FF, REW, Play, Pause, Random Play, and Repeat. Metadata information such as track, artist, and album name can be displayed.
