  1. anyone ever find a solution to this problem? I have a Z1 with the sirus module - it flashes "updating" but will not play music or respond to any commands ...
  2. iPhone 5 support?

    THANKS - I'll post the results of how things work for me - One other question - I should be able to plug in a new iPod touch (nano/shuffle with a lightening connector ) and have all the "iPod functions" that i have now - Right?
  3. iPhone 5 support?

    OK so i can be sure before i order I have a 110bt that I just upgraded using the NAVTEQ 2012 map update - I must say that I love the updated look - however i need to be able to use appradio mode for things like Escort Live / and my Maps iphone apps / also pandora would be nice. will the CD-IV202NAVI cable allow this? Thanks in advance for your input
  4. [quote name="BuzzH3"]you could also create smart playlists in iTunes that will automatically be populated with the criteria you select. i.e. - artist starts with A[/quote] This is a cool Idea but when i do this, and choose the playlist "A" for exmple i just get a list of all the [u]songs[/u] of artists that start with "a" not a list of all the[u] Artists [/u]that start with "a" . so this method dosen't help me to browse artist any better Am i missing something?

  6. MY Z1 Died - HELP!

    That's what i'm going to do. Also, while in this mode the Navi still displays turn info etc. when necessary while a route is selected, so it should work almost as well as any other display choice.... I just thought the toggle switch would be more flexable - but it's probably not worth the trouble. Thanks Guys for your input and help.
  7. MY Z1 Died - HELP!

    Thanks for the conformation - but that's exactly what i was doing when i blew the fuse. I'm not sure if i accidently grounded the switch when i hooked it up to test it, but that scared the crap out of me enough that i just unhooked the switch put the dash back together. I've got to regrow some stones before i try anything like that again thanks so much for your advice!
  8. MY Z1 Died - HELP!

    I'm such an idiot! As a result of losing power, i needed to turn on the camera input again in settings all is well again with my Z1. Wo! That was too close for comfort! In the future, if i feel that i must be able to view the image from the rear cam with the flip of a switch, I'll just rig up a switch to reverse the polarity of the cam... A Whole lot SAFER for my Z1 Thanks Again for your help - THIS FORUM ROCKS!
  9. MY Z1 Died - HELP!

    Hey Man, Thanks for your quick reply - yep it was a fuse ( my Ml has 2 radion fuses) BUT when i put it in reverse i get no rear cam display I checked "Hardware" in the settings menue and I DO get a signal when in reverse. BUT no cam. also i am unable to select the Rear view option from my nav. The fuse to my camera is not blown and it is getting 12V. does it sound like i blew out my rear cam circuit?
  10. I think i just screwed up my Z1 Everything was working fine until i tried to hook up a switch so that I could easily check behind my travel trailer while driving. I had checked out several forums on this site and i thought i was hooking it up corectly. Here's what i did. I hooked a double pole switch onto my reverse input so that it either received the normal reverse signal from my canbus or a constant 12V so that the unit would think the vehicle is in reverse. BUT when i hooked it all up, the unit competely died!. It wont come on any more at all! I unhooked my switch and put things back as before, but it is still totally dead! I checked all the fuses but none are blown. PLEASE Help!
  11. Power for reverse camera from Canbus?

    Agreed, I hadn't given it much thought until I read several posts suggesting that they be powered by the BU lights. I think i'm just going to leave mine hooked up to Acc. and if it blows, worry about it then...
  12. Power for reverse camera from Canbus?

    That's true unless i install a switch to power the camera as needed. I was hoping some folks who have with experience with BU cams would share their personal experience. i.e. is it really worth it to worry about the cam being on. If the camera life isn't severly compromised by leaving it on while driving it would be much simpler to do so. BTW I have the Pioneer ND-BC1 anyone with any ideas as to how it will do if left on while driving? I would assume it would do ok since the installation instructions state to hook to a power source that is controled by the ignition. Thanks
  13. I have searched this forum but i haven't found what i'm looking for..... Currently, I am powering my BackUp camera from an Acc powered wire so that it is only on while the vehicle is running. I have read on other threads about powering the camera from a backup light so that it will only be on when in reverse to extend camera life. I have installed a canbus adapter in my 2000 ML55 to get my VSS and Reverse Signal and everything works fine. I know that when in reverse, the canbus adapter Reverse Signal wire sends +12V to the Z1. 2 questions 1) Is it really a big deal to only have the camera come on when in reverse? - i.e. In reality, how will affect the life of the camera? How long does the camera last if it is just left on while driving? 2) Is it safe to power my camera from the Canbus Reverse Signal wire? I don't wan't to cause any problems with my Canbus/vehicle wiring, but it would save having to run more wires.
  14. Z1 Reverse Camera

    That is much simpler. One more question: wouldn't your backup light come on when you flip the switch? Actually, i get my reverse signal from my Canbus and i'm not sure it if would damage it if it gets 12 volts "retrograde" into it's "reverse out signal wire"... Couldn't we use a DP switch to keep this from happining?

    this pretty much covers it... http://www.instructables.com/id/EWM22OJX83EYPNJ7EE/
