  1. so.. what I said was wrong, if you caught it. I did wipe my nexus 5x and it now works with the 8200 and android auto like it did a few months ago. I can't tell you why though. something in android 8.0 and 8.1 did mess it up though. A fresh reset to 8.1 is fine. Far as i can tell pioneer and android auto work well with my 8200.... android 6.0, 7.1 and 8.0, 8.1 I have a random usb c cord also a 90 degree adaptor then extension, then my C cord, or micro cord. I would guess pixel people need a factory wipe and it will work fine. I have the micro byass, and the long press left corner thing before I tried two fresh phones. Both work fine.
  2. they sent me a new 8201, I received it exactly 122 days after I sent the original in. Only to find out android 8.0 or 8.1 broke android auto compatibility.
  3. while plugged in using android auto, and using google nav, google music plays just fine. But it is not BT, it's usb. YOu don't need a rooted rom to use your phone while plugged in with android auto active. I don't know if that's specific to to nexus devices but it works fine for me. It's when you want to switch to the native pandora app on the pioneer and you're plugged in with your phone using android auto that you get the message to unplug your phone. Native pandora on your device (phone) audio out to pioneer while in android auto works. I didn't have my 8200 long enough to memorize the ins and outs. It's an 800 dollar POS if you ask me. Don't buy
  4. I was told friday, dec 8, that the parts to fix my 8200 (sent in to pioneer for the software fail screen message) aren't available and pioneer doesn't know when they will be. They've had it for 7 weeks +. She said at the 90 day mark they will explore other options. I didn't ask what those other options were at the time. pretty disgusting if you ask me. I bought it in april, installed in may, failed in sept, sent in oct 4th, repair process started oct 19. What do they do at the 90 day mark? give you a refurbished one? new one? Anyone had this happen? I'm reluctant to swap to kenwood or alpine, not only for the 850$ wasted on pioneer, but mostly because the wiring, gps antenna and the axxess sterering wheel interface. I have a kenwood shallow mount single din in there at the moment that looks like shit but works. I have a pioneer avh7800bt sitting here also. But also single din with the flip up screen. WOuld you cut your losses and sell the 8200 when you got it back from factory service and install a new kenwood or apline now? I'm thinking kenwwod or alpine's service or reliability might be just as bad, IDK. Putting the 8200 back in might take 20 minutes while a whole new install might take3 or 4 hours.

    My 8200 died also- in 3 months. I'm waiting for it to get back from pioneer and I'm trying to get set up to backup when it gets back to me. Wondering if this process is good for 8200?
