  1. That looks like the adhesive between the digitizer and LCD is starting to give way, can you not heat it up with a hair dryer and carefully split the 2 screens and then remove the excess adhesive with nail polish remover/acetone, then just seal them back together around the edges.
  2. Join the Red(switched) and Yellow(constant) together. A lot of harnesses come with an adapter/way of joining these
  3. Is anyone using this? Looks interesting, just downloaded it for my Android HDMI stick so I'll see how I get on https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/102908788212710276577 https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bitspice.automate&ah=DjBWrx7phoCnwMt_HrR2QHyXTtQ

    Have you tried selecting Google Text-to-speech as your preferred output engine. On your Android device, go to: Settings > Language & input > Text-to-speech output.

    weird, I think I get them, I'll have to check

    the MK809iii hasn't got gps so it won't work when connected to your TV, reloaded has the option to inject the gps from the appradio though, you need to turn this on in the unchained app and turn on mock locations in settings-developer options. If locatio services is tuened off on your rom you will need to manually enable it

    Yea, I've been keeping an eye out for a TR7 but they are about €30-€35 this side of the world which seems a bit pricey. It's also only up to 4minutes which is an improvement but I'd like backup for say 8-9hours so when I leave work it doesn't have to boot again

    Everything is great, the battery backup is the last piece I need to get setup/working as it is a pain in the ass if you are making a quick stop at the shop and need to wait the 90seconds for the stick to boot when you return to your car. the wifi wasn't great on the stick I bought but I'm handy with a soldering iron so I soldered on a copper wire antenna which fixed that. Other than that it's given my AR2 a new lease of life and I'm loving it.

    The only battery that I can find that actually advertises this as a feature is the Romoss Solo series http://www.romoss.com/powerlist.php?SortID=11 I've ordered one so I'll update how I get on when it arrives

    I'm really enjoying my radio since installing it, much faster and smoother interface. GPS injection is good too.

    I'm now using this 1 month and have to say it works flawlessly, next thing I've to do is get the battery backup wired in so when I stop the car for a couple minutes I don't have to reboot. I bought a cheap battery pack but its switched, so just need to try mod that to charge while in use. I'm sure there are hundreds of different models that work, I just bought the cheapest one with decent reviews I found, which was the mk809iii and was only €35 inc postage.
  12. I'm pretty sure you need the official cable(CD-IU201V) to use the older phones(iPhone 3GS/4/4S, iPod Touch 4th Gen) with that radio as the video from the phone is analogue and needs to be run in through a 3.5mm jack on the rear of the radio. http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/Accessories/Smartphone-and-iPod-Cables/CD-IU201V Edit, I was right, extract taken from the manual!
  13. iPhone 6 needs to run into the HDMI port in the back of the radio on the AR3, so a HDMI to Lightning cable or adapter are needed. the iPhone4 cable is analogue video so there is no adapter
  14. Radio mode not working

    Sounds like it's wired wrong, possibly the 12v switched and 12v constant are the wrong way around.
  15. Android appradio unchained, Android HDMI dongle tethered to your iPhone for internet if you dont want to change your phone
