  1. avic z130 mic

    if I were a betting man, i'd say its plugged into the wrong port...
  2. Z120BT on Sale (Deal from al eds is now dead)

    I just got my Avic-Z120BT and the ipod cable off Aamzon for less than $800 after the rebate. Use code UIBMC8UY to get 30% off pioneer stuff. They also have another special to take 10% off when you purchase 2 pioneer items, then the $100 rebate on top of this. Here's a screen shot of the 10% off page. http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:oY4qz6fHReQJ:www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html%3Fie%3DUTF8%26plgroup%3D5%26docId%3D1000527911&cd=3&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us
  3. Pac SWI-PS & 3.0

    why dont you get the new version (blue one) of the SWI-PS so you can use the voice buttons for the function intended?
  4. Beware Of 3.0 update you can brick your unit!

    My update went as smooth as it could go. It was an error free install that took exactly 48 minutes.
  5. why are you using the SWI-X instead of the SWI-PS? In my opinion, the PS is much alot better, especially the newest version (the blue one) there's no delay like there was on the previous version.
  6. Owners of F Series - Would you do it again?

    Still no excuse, I've had the Z2, F90, and now the DNX and the F takes over twice as long to boot up....unacceptable. It's Pioneer "economy" unit, they aren't going to put the effort into it as they do their flagship Z-series. (Direct quote from a Pioneer rep)
  7. Kenwood all the way. I returned my F90 and picked my 8120 up a couple weeks ago and have not regretted it at all!!
  8. Owners of F Series - Would you do it again?

    Took mine back and got the Kenwood DNX8120. I dont know why I waited so long to switch them out, the Kenwood is SO much better. Eff you Pioneer, you just lost a mobile audio customer (only because I have 2 of your plasma's).
  9. Upgrade from Z1 to F900BT

    not the same. BTW, Pioneer doesn't consider going from the Z-series to the F-series (even the F90) an upgrade. I called them to express my frustration saying how an F unit should operate the same or better than my old Z2. They told me the F-series is an entry level and going from the Z to the F is a step down. It kinda pissed me off. I told them that I was gonna take back my F and get a Kenwood. The response I got really surprised me. He said, "Fine by me." Great customer service...
  10. Just bought a AVIC-F90BT. Should I keep it???

    I just took my F90BT back this weekend and got the DNX8120 to replace it. While the UI isnt as pretty as the Pioneer's, the unit works flawlessly. I don't have a single regret upgrading to the Kenwood. I had a Z2 before the F and now the 8120. In my opinion, the 8120 is the overall best yet.
  11. Totally New to HU's lol

  12. Owners of F Series - Would you do it again?

    I agree with this statement. Mine resets, drops the ipod, comes up with a windows error, and still has all the problems the others are having.
  13. Owners of F Series - Would you do it again?

    I just wanted to bump this thread so all these newbies that keep asking questions can decide to get one based off our hands-on experience. Don't say we didn't warn you!!!
  14. Owners of F Series - Would you do it again?

    Yes, namely the infamous green squares. According to the Pioneer rep I spoke with on the phone, they meant to leave them on there all the time. But when I asked him why would you want to leave those on the map when all they do is block information, he couldn't answer me. He just said they were intentionally left on the map.
  15. Owners of F Series - Would you do it again?

    I can't emphasize enough....HELL NO!! This a a sub par beta unit that should have waited a few months before it was released to fix all these problems. Also, the Pioneer customer service is a joke, especially when they say some of the bugs were intentional.
