They are one of the pioneers in the field of In-car music system. They use the mirror link technology to sychronise the phone with the music system. It helps in avoiding “App cluttering”. They have named it Todoroki, which means “Sound Of thunder”, in Japanese. Pioneer studied more than 1,000 songs varying from Hollywood to Punjabi. They observed that the youth in India love the Bass and the Treble more. Tastes ranging from the Northern India, to the western and southern India were thoroughly tested. Since there are different music variations, they have come up with 13 Band graphic equalizer, which can be changed by the flick of a finger.

They have also devised ways where one single wire (USB wire) can be used for both Charging and data transfer. One just needs to install an app, and it will automatically synchronize all the media on their phones, iPods and other MP3 Players. There are some additional features, like it synchronizes the contacts wherein you can set reminders and the system will remind you by announcing it in due time.
