    Pioneer suck

    you have a 940, in this thread we are talking about an 850... long story short, with the newer avics, instead of having a usb cable that come out of the radio, there is a special connector. they make different adapter kits to plug into this connector, iPhone, Android, and yes USB are all seperate adapter kits that you need to buy extra if you want to use them. depending on the phone, you may need another adapter (or two) to use the adapter though...
  2. yes, you also need the sirius SCC1. the SCC1 is actually the satellite tuner, and the cd-sb10 is the part that makes it work on a pioneer radio. http://shop.siriusxm.com/xm/ctl10600/cp49759/si6261506/cl1/
  3. I'm pretty sure if you void your warranty if you replace your iphone's battery, that is what is meant by "non replaceable battery" in the phone world. if there is a removable cover that somebody can pop off and swap out a different battery whenever they want, then the phone has a removable battery if you have to open up the phone and replace internal parts then that is as "non replaceable" as it gets... of course the battery, screen, digitizer, speakers, mic... can all be serviced, some are just more difficult than others haha, you need to get out more bud! lol, its a
  4. didn't even mean it like that (this time lol) there have been a few really sweet androids lately Ive had to steer away from because of non replaceable batteries.
  5. ive seen a lot phones getting super hot, but its not just an app radio problem. a lot of new radios (none quite as bad the AR) are relying heavily on the resources of the phone instead of their own and are keeping them active, which really works out the processor, then if you add charging the battery at the same time and you can cook biscuits off of most of them. hell ive seen some powerful androids not even charge because the phone is using power probably slightly faster then it is receiving it. I'm sure this cant be anywhere near optimal for the life of a phone battery, but then ag
  6. yes, cheap chinese knock offs have been know to be built very poorly and either are defective out of the mob or fail early. the XD9sc is pretty sweet, my father up graded to one from a Beretta for his EDC. I was back and forth between that and the XDm9c I finally decided on.
  7. only an Apple fan would think that having a bunch of adapters is anything but a terrible ideal who cares how much it cost, or who you have to license it from, thats what you do. if you have an iPhone, you can pay a little extra to have a fancy cable that does not look like a squid giving birth.
  8. it seems ridiculous that is the only option... a part from pioneer and then two other parts that somebody else makes, it doesn't even seem like pioneer is even trying anymore. you going to tell me that they cant figure all that magic out in that little box and just have a single part to buy with a single cable coming out of the box...

    the AVH model line is nowhere near as moddable as some of the AVIC series are. I do not believe that Ive really ever seen any other than a hardware bypass if that even counts.
  10. of course you could, but why be lazy? you should just hook it up so the unit is as accurate as possible.

    here is the chart to see what cable you need for which features you want http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/2013+Pioneer+and+Apple+Compatibility
  12. ok if you have the reverse wire hooked up, the wires actually test out with a meter, and the camera is all wired correctly. then you have a problem with the avic itself, probably a software glitch
  13. you will need the harness with the RCA cables if you even want to bypass the unit (watch video while in motion) hook up any amps, or hook up a back up camera. your setting are greyed out because you do not have the parking brake wire hooked up and the brake is not set.
  14. have you checked to make sure the power and ground wires are still good at the XM tuner? (no blown fuses, no loose wires, harness has both 12v+ and ground?) if the tuner does have power, then you either have a bad XM tuner, a bad IPBus input on the AVIC, or a bad cable. the only easy way to test is to test with a new unit. you are correct that it has nothing to do with your subscription, even if you didn't pay your bill, it would still show up as a source and play the preview channel. also even though i dont think that this is your problem, make sure the the IpBus c
  15. also for the record, this is a sub forum for the AVIC X series of headunits. you have a AVH-X8500bhs the AVH models are just mobile video systems, the AVIC models have built in navigation.
