  2. AVH-4400NEX Software Error

    My first posting...found you guys via Google, while trying to troubleshoot my AVH440.. My unit has been doing a few odd things...it’s 2 years old. The first oddity is a tendency to change screens from what I left it last time...it begins playing, then there’s a period of several seconds where there’s no sound, then 80% of the time, it then plays (but the screen has changed)...the other 20% of the time, it will say that it can’t find my phone (iPhoneX, IOS 14.2).... Sometimes, when it does this, I can go to “Bluetooth Audio”, and get it to play music, but Apple CarPlay isn’t connected.... Is this a potential symptom of a failing SD card, or is there something else going on?
  3. Carplay not Autoconnecting on AVH-W4400NEX

    Same issue with an iPhone 11.
  4. 4400 NEX Wireless CarPlay on New iPhone issues

    4400nex and iPhone 11 here. Same issue with wireless Carplay. I have to go into Settings > Bluetooth and tap the 4400 to connect, then go out to the head unit and search for it to connect. Such a pain in the ass. My old iPhone 8 Plus still connects flawlessly to the 4400 (even on iOS 14), so I strongly suspect it's something iPhone 11 hardware-specific. Long shot, but did you (or anyone seeing this) ever manage to overcome this issue?

  7. AVIC-W8500NEX Sporadically Reboots

    And by the way...stripping wires, especially in the middle of a run...use these. They used to be super expensive but have gotten less so over the years.
  8. AVIC-W8500NEX Sporadically Reboots

    I updated to the 3.9...drove to the store for some trivial get the hell out of the house before I lose my mind crap...and stereo rebooted again. So, I called Maestro iDatalink tech support. A long story short (substantial electronics background)...if a power bypass is involved, it sounds like it is a biasing issue in the module. Meaning, at one point everything is fine, then there is a current draw in the system, the system reboots, and everything is fine again until the next event. Since there is no one event (using apps, changing apps, bluetooth, etc) that is causing it, and more or direct power seems to be the solution, then we need to find the issue/event using too much power. It sounds like the tech folks are running to ground the same thing. They said the 3.6 firmware should have solved it. Then 3.8 and 3.9 followed quickly after that. I am going to wait on cutting wires and give them a chance to figure it out. As soon as I hear anything...I will post it here ASAP. In the meantime...random reboots. :^( Cheers.
  9. AVIC-W8500NEX Sporadically Reboots

    Looks like there is yet another firmware available for this: MAESTRO RR ADS-MRR FIRMWARE ADS-RR(SR)-TOY01-DS (512) V3.9 HARDWARE RR (512)
  10. AVIC-W8500NEX Sporadically Reboots

    So...started getting reboots again. Totally random...no one thing or event that each occurrence has in common. Will try the power wire bypass now. (Pioneer insists on doing the whole United Radio repair process again. Honestly, if I have to go another month with a big ass hole in my dash...I'm just throwing this thing away and going with another brand. Such bullshit.)
  11. Noise when hitting buttons 4660nex

    Car on or car off, when hitting a button on the touchscreen, like volume up and down, or selecting anything, I get a thud from my subwoofer, not real loud. Tried different ground points on for the headunit, I don't get alternator whine or anything. Gains on my amps are excessively low as I have way more power than i need 3000wrms for a 1200wrms sub, and 150wrmsx4 for my mids and tweets. It is a minor annoyance, I but was wondering if anyone has experienced something similar with the nex units.
  12. Backups and Images

    I can confirm that the file posted for the AVH-W4400NEX works. I reformatted a SD card and made a simple file formatted to ext4. Then I used win32 to write the image to the card, plugged it in my machine and it booted up first time. Thanks for posting this. Saved me from having to buy from Pioneer or ebay. They really need to put better SD cards in their devices as this seems to be a common problem. I have another unit in a different car so I made another card to have on hand for when it goes bad.
  13. AVH-W4400NEX Bad SD Card

    Hi are you able to send a picture of which options to choose in the win32diskimager program? Thank you.

    Just noticed this today and was headed here to make a post about the new firmware, but I already see that you are on top of it.
  16. Nex 8000 Screen Scratch

    so don't do this for deep scratches, you will get down to a layer that is unpolishable compared to the top layers and has a definitive transition between the layers causing a ring. the two spots I had deep gouges have sanding scratches that will not come out because I had to go about the depth of half a penny? that's the best way I can describe how deep it was. it should be noted I sanded the entire screen and the rest of it polished up fine, the two circular parts you can see in the photo in the center bottom will not polish. if you look at an angle this is because the top of it is polished and the sanding scratches permeated to the layer below the top polished layer so when looking at an angle it is glass smooth and polished, in sunlight the scratches appear. and sorry I didn't even clean it up. that's not a scratch on the top in the sun that's just scratch and swirl remover leftover. So light scratches.... absolutely just get a orbital polishing kit and some 2500grit sandpaper and scratch and swirl remover and go at it. it polishes up fine and has no effect on the digitizer. deep scratches... , pioneer shipped me a replacement for 100 bucks.. if I knew it was this cheap and easy I wouldn't have wasted time polishing. lol. I will make a YouTube video of the replacement process. I have already disassembled and reassembled the deck and it's stupid easy, 6 screws paying careful attention to the ribbon connectors (and the lenses for the side led and ir). I'll explain it all. no need to pay a pioneer service center, although I assume it voids the warranty somehow if you work on it yourself.

  18. AVIC-MRZ99 Custom Firmware / Testmode

    Is the testmode.key file correct? If it's not correct, you won't be able to copy or write. Try other files if the one you have doesn't work.
  19. AVIC-MRZ99 Custom Firmware / Testmode

    Watch this video. Try to do the same. I hope it helps you) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cEdovxMMfU
  20. AVIC-MRZ99 Custom Firmware / Testmode

    Hey man, thanks for the reply. I think there is a gps antenna connected to my car but I don't think it is working. I see a black small box shaped next to front glass. I checked some settings in my radio and it showed me like 9 red sattelites instead of green ones. Any ideas how to switch that? I live in Cyprus, North side.

  23. Change Japanese to English

    I have the same issue, I can select, enter, delete and all, but no copy or paste?
  24. AVIC-MRZ99 Custom Firmware / Testmode

    Hello! As far as I know, there is no manual setting in our devices (I have AVIC RZ-05). I read somewhere that to configure you need to connect a GPS antenna and the system itself will set the clock on the device after some time. I have no antenna, I have no way to check it.
  25. WT7600NEX & WT8600NEX First Impressions

    Good news, the 1.30 firmware is available for download. https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/StaticFiles/PUSA/Car_Electronics/Firmware Update Files/2020-DMH/October_2020/DMH-WT8600NEX.zip
  26. Same here. Tried a couple SD's all different sizes and reformatted. Placed the ISO, even decompressed the files. When I add the SD with the map update, it will promt directly for the update. Tried the double passwords and the 111. No luck. Any tips?
