  1. AVIC-W8500NEX Sporadically Reboots

    hello all, 6/20/20 now that i am back and driving my pioneer avic-w8500nex in my tundra 2008 with JVL is rebooting more often. i tried to call support yesterday all day long but was busy. *just to clarify: do i need to call them so they can push my new firmware called “reboot” and re-flash ??? would this fix the random rebooting ? and i will loose my steering wheel controls until i reboot myself????? someone pls clarify because if this is the case then i radder let the system do it for me thank you all! mg
  2. AVIC-W8500NEX Sporadically Reboots

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ hello mdgeek, i have( 2 ) avic-w8500nex and (1) avic-w8400nex i have 2 maestro’s rr and the other one TLC has no steering wheel controls. ALL the pioneers re-boot’s randomly with the latest software. as of 11/1/19 pioneer wants me to send them back for service. - too much hazles and there is no warranty they will fix it. - i heard many they have replace them with new and they all do the same. one of the cars (my tundra) i drive on a daily basis and that is why i see it more frequently. the other cars are parked 90% of the time. my cars miata 2014 tundra 2008 land cruiser 2000 no maestro mdgeek, kindly keep your comments up to date on your modifications. i will try to call maestro and see if they can add me to the list of downloads. note: i am happy with the nav stereos and i personally think this is a way pioneer deals with possible screen freeze issues. by rebooting to ensure the proper functionality since i never have issues besides rebooting. (just my wild guess) fyi sometimes it goes for weeks without rebooting. thank you in advance for your comments mg
