Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

The AVIC-F900BT is quite an old model and is no longer supported by Pioneer.

It won't be fully compatible with most modern phones.

It will still play your DVDs and music just fine, but if you want a head unit that is compatible with the newest smartphones then you will need to upgrade the system.
