  1. Actually, if it's the old F90/F900BT model, then there are actually 2 tuner modules. Antenna goes to an RF splitter, with one output going to the FM/AM Tuner module on the Audio board while the other output goes to the TMC/FM6 module in the Navi board. So you might have a bad FM/AM Tuner module, OR the Navi board isn't doing some sort of correct setup of the Tuner after you put 3.02.100 on the board. There are different device types in the AVIC software (especially the iGo folder) that differentiate between the US and Europe models. Did you happen to flash a European unit with a US upda
  2. OK, finally found my old notes from '09. Here's a copy of the MortScript I used to set up the registry entries the driver needs, copy the driver DLL over to \Windows and hide the Taskbar so it didn't sit on top of av.exe. Hope it helps. ##### # [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\Builtin\Ethman\Popup] # Popup=1 # Timeout=3600 (or 0xE10) RegWriteDWord( "HKLM", "Drivers\Builtin\Ethman\Popup", "Popup", 1) RegWriteDWord( "HKLM", "Drivers\Builtin\Ethman\Popup", "Timeout", 3600) ##### # [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\SDCARD\ClientDrivers\Custom\MANF-037A-CARDID-5911-FUNC-1] # "Dll"="WLAN11g.dll" # "Pre
  3. We had a long discussion thread going at one point. In it, I pasted a portion of the MortScript I borrowed from MioPocket that modified a few registry entries I needed for the WiFi settings to pop up: http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/23534-wifi-internet-browsing-f500bt-success/page-6&do=findComment&comment=176858 My full setup process was in the Wiki at one point but the article doesn't appear to have been copied over when Jason made the backup to the forum, so I'd need to search my old notes for the full script. Probably won't be able to do that for a week or so. I came
  4. On the AVIC F90/900/700BT, there is a volume/source selection control device that's on the Audio board, separate from the Navi board that does all the audio decoding for the USB/SD and drawing of pretty pictures on the display. If the Navi board doesn't tell the Audio board to choose the USB/SD audio source to send to the speakers before it starts playing, you won't hear the output on the speakers. If you can still run the stock Pioneer software, select SD or USB output and play a WAV or MP3 file. If that works, pause the MP3 then switch over to Core Player and see if you hear output now
  5. Did you connect the wiring harness' main power to the car's "always on" power, or to the "accessory" power (which goes away when you turn the key to off)? What you're describing is the same result you'd get if your car battery died or was disconnected, which removes the "always on" power.
  6. Sorry Shere, the RCAs are for iPod input, it's not an output. The F700/900/90BT models weren't designed for multi-zone audio or output to a second screen. Here's a link to the F700BT's manual page on Pioneer's site for details.
  7. While anything is possible given the right resources (time, money, information) there's a huge hurdle to overcome: drivers for all the devices on the F90 (boot support code, Bluetooth, commands to/from the support chips on the radio board, etc). Without those, you can't really do anything from the OS. Pioneer developed all that code in-house for the version of Windows running on the HU, and they're not likely to share with homebrewers. If you want the latest and greatest OS, the F90's not your best candidate. Best to purchase a newer model, or make yourself a carputer.
  8. Could be NavTeq has the same timezone bugs TeleAtlas/TomTom had with respect to states split across timezones (Florida, SE Oregon). Where are you located? Is there an obvious timezone data file in the maps we could look at in a hex editor (something named "timezone.bin" or similar)?
  9. Search box on the top right does wonders... "Power Supply" gets you a few hits. My favorite's http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/31171-atx-power/, but then again I'm biased since I wrote the original Wiki entry.
  10. Yeah, you can do that just fine with the F9*BT series as far as I know. It will depend upon your car's make and model. Some cars send the steering wheel commands over a CAN Bus to the head unit, in which case you'd need one of the SWI-CAN* devices. My car uses a voltage divider network that puts a different voltage on a wire depending upon which button is pushed, and I needed the SWI-PS to convert it to the right protocol for the AVIC. PAC has an application selector on their website you can use (http://pac-audio.com/). That should help identify if any of their products are com
  11. Oh, you can use the controls with the SWI-PS and the AVIC. But as the bullets you pasted state, the way the buttons work won't be 100% like your OEM radio. I have the SWI-PS and the AVIC-F90BT, and it's really annoying that on my car you can only seek the radio station/move to next song on iPod/USB/CD. There's no way to do both the seek and the presets with the number of buttons I have anyway. Since all the SWI-PS does is convert specific voltages on the input line to specific commands on the AVIC remote input, I tried an experiment where I used a 2-button combo when programming the SWI
  12. I got everything I needed to get it working on my F90BT (Spectec WiFi driver DLL + most of the registry entries) from the MioPocket release. http://netfresco.com/MioPocket/ Give it a look through, lots of educational value to their MortScript, etc.
  13. Nope, one of the number one complaints about the add-on. No update from Pioneer nor any hack has solved this yet. One of my biggest complaints aside from the ridiculous choice of short, wide on-screen buttons for the presets in the first place. That, and the fact that I've had two of the HD units stop responding to commands from the head unit...
  14. Actually, the fix is present in some of the hacks now. iGo, for some incredibly bizzare reason, put the whole state of Oregon in the Idaho timezone (we have 1 county on the southeastern edge of the state that actually is in that timezone). The fix is to hex edit a file inside the data.zip. See http://avic411.com/index.php?showtopic=27948#p218802 for the fix.
  15. You can create an empty text file in the same directory as haret.exe which will cause HaRET to log a lot of information about its discovery process. From http://htc-linux.org...n#Early_logging: That same page has some pretty good info about HaRET in general, with some HTC-specifics mixed in. In your haretlog.txt, look for something resembling this: Trying to detect machine (Plat='PIONEER' OEM='Handheld Reference Board BSP version:TitanHHV1.0.47') Wince reports processor: core=ARM1136JF-S name=TN2X0A cat= vend=Centrality That will give you a good start on your search f
  16. Sadly, the Parrot hardware used in the F90/900/700BT doesn't support the A2DP profile you'd need to use to stream music. It only supports the Serial Port and Handsfree profiles.
  17. No idea, I've not considered moving on from the F90BT, it will be the last Pioneer Navi I purchase after the poor software experience. My next install will probably be a dedicated carputer (I went with F90BT to try to avoid that time-sink but in the end I would have ended up with what I wanted and a much more open platform to customize if I had).
  18. Very likely, but you'll probably need NEventWatcher.exe active for AV.exe/Tel.exe/MainMenu.exe to work. If the current U/F/Z generation is anything like the F90BT, then I think you need NEventWatcher.exe alive in order for the Navi board to communicate back to the uCom device on the AV board to do all your system tasks (switch audio source, control the eVolume chip, etc). This is done over one of the COM or USARTs (see the Service Manual for the schematic that details which port connects to the uCom).
  19. Yeah, you'll probably need MortScript if you don't want to do an OS re-imaging. I had to do a similar thing to get my Spectec SDW-821 SDIO card to work with my AVIC-F90BT, the details of what was required might still show up if you search the forum for my posts (I don't have my notes handy). My work was derived from the MioPocket process used to enable the Spectec on handheld navis like the iPaq 310 (uses the same processor as my F90BT). You could also use EEGeek's approach of replacing a useless driver with your own, see http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/31170-modify-base-os/ for the
  20. ryar, you may need the right driver for the chip in the OBDII reader. If you use you laptop's device manager (assuming Windows here) and look under the OBDII device's properties, you should be able to look up the Hardware ID (usually has VID and PID in the string). You can then do a Google search to see if there are any WinCE drivers for that part (typically these things use an FTDI part but the EEPROM settings change the VID/PID to the OEM's info so only their driver works with it).
  21. ULPI is an industry standard interface for a chip to connect to an external USB PHY (the part of a chip that handles sending and receiving the bits over the cable). You'd have to build some sort of circuit with a transceiver chip, a USB connector and whatever other support circuits to provide required power/config to the transceiver to connect your stuff to USB0. Example: http://www.slscorp.com/products/santacruz-snap-on-board/usb-20-ulpi.html
  22. See the AVIC Wiki for the "ATX Power" topic Jason copied out of the Hacks and Mods forums. http://avic411.com/index.php?/forum/61-wiki/
  23. Don't have the haret.exe handy, sorry. Never got around to building a Linux kernel for the Titan, but I'm sure you can find some patches on the Internet. By the way, you'll need to look up the right platform string to add to src\mach\machlist.txt for the z120bt. Also, there's no guarantee Pioneer or their 3rd party Navi developer used the SiRF Titan, which means you might need to add support for an ARM core other than the 1136JF(S) to HaRET (detection code based on ID register, MMU and cache setup, etc).
  24. Found my notes on setting up a Windows + Cygwin + CEGCC Haret build environment, was in Feb 2011 so there may be some drift and updates required. --- Using Cygwin 1.7 and cegcc 0.59 --- Install Cygwin 1.7 plus the following additional packages: cvs cvsutils gcc-mingw-core gcc-mingw-g++ git make perl python subversion wget Download cegcc 0.59 from SourceForge and extract to /opt cd / tar xvfj /cygdrive/c/Users/haretUser/Downloads/cegcc-0.59.1.tar.bz2 cd /opt/ tar xvfj /cygdrive/c/Users/haretUser/Downloads/cegcc_mingw32ce_cygwin1.7_r1375.tar.bz2 Copy
  25. Delete the '.' from the end of the URL (it should end in ".html" not ".html."). http://lists.linuxtogo.org/pipermail/haret-devel/2010-February/000009.html I may have something more recent, will have to check the build box when I get home later.
