  1. 2019 NEX models?

    Anyone know when we might hear about new models of the NEX series for 2019? I'm wondering if they'll announce anything at CES next week. I've been thinking about getting a W8400NEX, but I don't want to do it if a newer model is about to be released.
  2. 2019 NEX models?

    How long does it take to boot up?
  3. 2019 NEX models?

    Sounds like a nice unit. Would be great to have a 720p screen.
  4. 2019 NEX models?

    Where did you hear this? And do you know any more details?
  5. 2019 NEX models?

    Which Kenwood model are you considering? And do they have the same EQ/time alignment capabilities as the NEX?
  6. iOS 11 Breaks Carplay

    I have IOS 11 and CarPlay works just fine for me on my 4000NEX. As mentioned above, try restarting your phone
  7. The only thing I can suggest is that I know the artwork can't be larger than 600x600, but I'm guessing that's not the problem if it shows in Mixtrax.
  8. 8200NEX USB read problems (way too slow)

    One thing that helped the read time considerably on my 256GB flash drive is going through and eliminating all the unnecessary tags from my music files. You'd be surprised how many can be embedded into each file, and they all have to be read if they're there. Use MP3tag (works for flac files too) and select all files, view extended tags, and delete everything except artist, album, track, etc. Doing this cut my read time at least in half.
  9. Apple CarPlay Updated in iOs 10.3

    I'm not a big fan of the changes. The screen is much too busy now, and the Music app has way too much going on in the Now Playing screen, with links to the album and Up Next across the top. Looks like kind of a mess to me.

    I have a 4000NEX currently on 1.09. Is there any benefit or extra features to be had by upgrading to 1.14? Just wondering if it's worth the effort.
  11. Nex 4000 CarPlay help

    Did you have the problem before the 1.14 update or only after?
  12. Nex 4000 CarPlay help

    There's no way a firmware update should take four hours. Something is definitely very wrong.
  13. New NEX units now 8200 instead of 8100.

    Why can't you play music and navigate with one phone? When I use Carplsy, I use both Maps and Music at the same time. Not sure why you need a second phone.
  14. New NEX units now 8200 instead of 8100.

    Anybody know if the JBL has time alignment and decent EQ and all that?
  15. New NEX units now 8200 instead of 8100.

    That's it? That's a year's work for Pioneer?
  16. Auto EQ Adjustment - Does it help?

    Can you explain what SMD devices are? I'd love to know more about how to tune my setup. Thanks.
  17. On the fence - AVH-4100NEX or AVIC-5100NEX

    I have the 4000NEX and use Apple Maps all the time. I don't miss the built-in nav at all.
  18. NEX Mic and Apple Carplay

    Same issue here.
  19. iPhone 6s+ 4100 issues

    I'm really not sure what you mean by that.
  20. iPhone 6s+ 4100 issues

    This kind of thing can usually be fixed by just doing a hard reset on the phone.
  21. AvicSync news

    Sounds like the CarPlay situation all over again
  22. Road trip with CarPlay and iOS 9.0

    I'm guessing you're right that the head unit needs a firmware update, because one problem I'm having is that, when using CarPlay, sometimes the physical buttons on my 4000NEX stop working and the music can only be controlled by touching the screen.
  23. Carplay Album Art Issue

    Maybe I'll submit an iPhone feedback comment and see if anyone's listening about CarPlay.
  24. Carplay Album Art Issue

    Me too. Just have it slightly dimmed and not blurry at all, and it would look fantastic. Anybody know how to suggest that to Apple? There's no CarPlay feedback submission form.
  25. Carplay Album Art Issue

    I agree. If the artwork were slightly less blurry, it would be a lot better. Depending on the album art, it sometimes looks just like abstract colors and not really recognizable as the album cover. It's funny, the one thing that bothers me is that they moved the artist name from the top line and now put it on the same line as the album name, separated by a dash.
