  1. 8100 NEX Firmware 1.09 upgrade

    Im not going to drill another hole in my console for an un needed usb port.
  2. 8100 NEX Firmware 1.09 upgrade

    So i bought my 8100NEX in January and upgraded the firmware to 1.05. I just this week installed it into my wifes van and noticed a new firmware v1.09 came out. I only have the USB port #2 connected to an external port so in order to get access to USB port #1 i have to take the receiver out. Is there any significant upgrades to make this upgrade worth the effort? We use android phones and the couple things on the official change log seemed to pertain to iphone functionality. really annoying they dont allow an update over the SD card.

    It also said my speed signal wire was not connected but i know it is and double checked. Is that part of this hack?
  4. Official AVIC NEX Bypass (AVIC NEX Units Only)

    I just installed my 8100 NEX with firmware version 1.05. I grounded the parking wire and performed the quadrant 4 method. I was given the message "set off". I started driving and about 1 minute in got the warning that the parking brake is not connected. Do i do this wrong? How often does that message come up? Thanks!

    If i just do the software bypass does that allow me to watch video and enter an address when in motion. Or just watch video?
  6. 2013 USA/CAN Maps Download

    is this still the most up to date maps.. 2013? my city has been under massive construction last couple years and this still doesn't have the new routes. Thanks
  7. LOL seriously the unit actually detects if the cover is on?
  8. i did the z1 to z2 upgrade all went smoothly until it was time to put the hdd back in the unit. when i did nothing happened, i could hear the fan on the back of the unit come on but thats it. I even reverted back to my old z1 image and it still wouldnt come back to life. SO is there maybe something im missing, i drove the car around for a week or so with no hard drive in it could that have damaged the unit? I didnt reinstall the HDD cover when i tested it does it need to be put back on for it to work?

  10. AVIC Z1/Z2/Z3 Upgrade to AVIC Z3 w/2009 Maps

    ok so i followed the directions to the letter, im using the drive that came with my z1 and after i updated it to the z2 image and put it back in the console it would not turn on. now i drove around for a week with the hard drive out could this have damaged the deck? could the image i downloaded be bad? i even reverted back to the z1 with the backup image i made and no success. the drive still works when plugged into a pc so the hdd isnt bad. i hit the reset button on the deck and nothing happened. this is so weird im am tech savvy and have no idea what could b wrong. please help!!
