  1. 2013 USA/CAN Maps Download

    Getting no responses from anyone. The language I have is Norwegian! Surely it cant be hard to change the language. Everything else works well even the BT but no maps of course.
  2. EU Maps update problem

    Moving this post to a more active section if anyone can offer some advice please Looking for some advice here after I followed instructions to update my 920BT unit. Performed the Shortfuse hack and this was successful. Loaded Cardinfo.cif file from RonS which should work for 920BT together with Firmware and Update files using new SD card. Update took 30 min and was successful I thought but then after it restarted I was asked for language option? English was the only EU language greyed out so could not actually select that. I did not select anything and pressed OK to move on. The unit then gave me foreign language..... maybe German or Dutch. Anyone who has done the EU update advise me please what I did wrong and how do I reverse the language option back to English. Can I undo the update and have another go? Thanks so much

    OK will do however It has occurred to me that I did not get asked for any password? So update happened but I didn't enter any password.

    OK I did the Shortfuse hack and this loaded and was confirmed. Next I inserted the 16GB SD with three files being the Cardinfo above and the update and firmware update files. Nothing happened at all so unit is not reading the SD instruction? I just copied the above files onto my SD. Is there something else I should do as I have no way of opening cif. files on my MAC. Cardinfo is 33kb Firmware is 2.1mb and Update is 3.62gb !

    It was the password removal script that you posted in Sept 2017. My unit is not locked. My screen looked similar to this but said download will start in 5 seconds with same error message as below. See post by kellinaradway Posted September 23, 2017 I keep getting an error. I removed my SD card and the unit seems OK. I see there is an update to this thread to remove password but I have not found my "hidden" button when I tried to see the unit firmware details. I just want to load cardinfo.cif file and then the maps update.

    I just did the password hack and red screen says "password reset in 5 seconds" but below that was an error code 200c120 ?? Or something like that. So did the download fail to work? I just switched off and removed the SD. Shall I do it again? If I load the maps update and it requires a password can I just back out of that without problems? Thanks

    Good stuff much appreciated. My new SD Cards just got delivered so I can begin work. Will read everything again and make notes. Yes I can watch a DVD while moving so it seems the cabling is OK. BT 100% working is my aim as that is legal requirement. Given up on the Ipod connection but USB works just as well for music. You guys are really great.

    Many thanks My green brake wire is already connected to ground wire from the unit (previous owner) No other cables are connected ie. speed signal/remote control just the official loom with the steering wheel control module. I think the official bypass has black/green/blue connected together so hope BT update will still work on mine. As I said I have paired 3 phones so it does work occasionally but then greys out all by itself and becomes useless. Cant even use the phone dial pad as that is blank too. The BT update is the important one now as I hope it will restore functionality of this service. I would also then try to find 2017 EU maps update - is it in the threads somewhere.

    Hi RonS and thanks for such a quick response - I know you are the man! There is no download in the posts I am seeing - honest. I have been right through the thread/s and rechecked post 1 and no link there. I have been out in the car switching buttons back and forth as the BT has come up with all buttons working only two or three times. First time I registered 3 phones and made a test call. Next time the BT is switched off and other buttons are grey including register. Pressing BT ON/FF just means the failed connection message comes up as I guess you need all the buttons white to actually do anything. Suddenly all buttons there so I quickly try to press ON button but missed it! Back to greyed out except for 3 or 4 options. Very frustrating. I have managed to get the Firmware to come up twice and the number there is 3.11? Most times this is blank. I cannot get any other info from pressing top left corner of the screen - nothing happens there. I did call Pioneer who wanted £200 +tax + shipping for a new BT module (without seeing the unit) - I declined that offer. No other solutions offered. So I plan to follow your instructions re password hack which I think I do first and then load this firmware. There is no new firmware on Pioneer site ? So if I need the latest latest updates where would I find those? Sorry to be a pain but I am not a computer software expert just want to get this unit 100% again if it is possible. In meantime I am re reading all the posts so I don't screw this up and hopefully find correct firmware options Many thanks Sorry I have now realised I am looking for the download under the F920 instructions.. I am an idiot.

    I have read through the posts but I still cannot see where I can download the actual zip file. I need to fix my f920bt with usual BT problems Thanks anyone who can assist directing me
  13. I have installed this unit using Connect2 harness with steering column harness and this works OK. I have checked the wiring and the green brake wire is earthed already to the earth from the unit. My problems are: 1. The Bluetooth function comes and goes. I managed to get my phone registered and tested it OK but then the options freeze and you cannot always get the BT to switch on. If I go to the phone screen all the icons are greyed out. I have seen it function but only once or twice and I cannot get the screen to work when I need to. 2. The Ipod is not recognised. I have a Classic 30gb from 2005 but when I connect this is says "unauthorised device" connection failed. I tried to just use the jack plug connection into Ipod output but this does not play. The Ipod is being charged by the correct lead but it will not allow any playback. Any advice please
