  1. 8500NEX Back up camera trigger

    Did you mean the trigger wire only and/or the power source wire? You could use a Haynes manual or a Youtube instructional video to find an alternate source for your reverse wire. You just need to find the right colored wire that is connected to one of your reverse lights. I have my power wire connected to a constant power source, which allows me to turn on the reverse camera even when I do not have the car in reverse.
  2. ebay maps

    I just bought the maps for the 8200. Everything installed smoothly. The only issue is that the "copy script" screen won't start automatically unless you tap the screen to get it going.
  3. backup camera wiring questions

    Backup cameras have a wire for the turn on signal and a wire for the power. Both need to be connected to the radio. However, you could splice them together at the light's wiring harness because the radio will separate the signal and power. You can't do that with a wiring situation where the parking lights are turned on, on the ground side.This was my situation, and fortunately, Pioneer has the option in its menu to take a hot signal from the ground wire. I had to run two separate wires for the power and turn on signal. If Pioneer didn't offer this, you would have to add some kind of relay to reverse the polarity of the signal back to the head unit. This would make a simple install job a big PITA.
  4. Bluetooth on 8000 NEX

    Try reinstalling the latest firmware on top of the current one. This can fix many problems.
  5. AVIC8100-NEX no maps

    Try reloading the firmware.
  6. These units appear to be flexible with bad firmware installs. Try uploading the proper firmware to your unit. It worked for me after my navigation features were eliminated due to some kind of glitch.
  7. Auto EQ Adjustment - Does it help?

    I tried the Pioneer mic and a cheap Radio Shack powered mic. The Radio Shack mic produced a much better result.
  8. Ipod Classic into the 8200 cord question

    You only need a USB extension cord from the back of the 8200 unit and your plain old white Apple cord from the extension to the iPod Classic. Or, just get a longer 30 pin cord from Amazon and you won't need an extension. You definitely don't need to buy their cord.
  9. Navigation system gone?

    In case someone does a search on this problem, I can confirm that a firmware reload will resolve the missing navigation maps and menu problem.

  11. Navigation system gone?

    Hello, I am having the exact same problem with my 8200. What did you update? The firmware or the navigation maps? Thanks.
  12. Always keep a multi-meter nearby to test continuity on the wires. I couldn't figure out why one of my speakers wasn't working. I used a multi-meter to trace the problem back to a loose wire in a harness that had pulled out of the adapter.
  13. AVIC 8200-NEX + iPhone/iPod: Various Results

    My 7th generation iPod Classic 160 GB does resume the song it was playing on the 8200 whenever I switch sources or restart the car. I always leave it permanently attached to the USB extension. However, the issue I am having is that the iPod always shuts off at around the 45th song played. I am using the shuffle play option on 16,000 songs and it is attached to USB2. The iPod does not seem to recharge on this port and it seems to be a battery issue since it displays the "recharge" message after it shuts off. I will try the first USB port and a different cable.
  14. I didn't see this firmware update for the 8200 on Pioneer's site. Is it genuine? Only 1.01 is available. Has anyone installed 1.02 yet?
  15. NEX 8200 Ipod Issue

    Your iPod is rebooting each time you give it power. Clean up the tags in your collection and turn off all signal processing on the iPod (EQ and Sound Check).
