  1. Maps Not Displaying

    I was reading here on how to do it. I was always updating my x910bt but this is a whole different beast. Don’t know if I want to try it. I’ll toy with it some. Thanx
  2. Maps Not Displaying

    Hi y’all I just got my 8200 back from wonderful Pioneer service center ($230.00 later) for an unresponsive touch screen. I hooked it up and everything is hunky Dory now except I get not maps whatsoever. Needless to say I’m a bit pissed! I had maps before I sent it out and now there is nothing. I was also having issue with the time adjustment as I had to up the GMT by 7 hours so that it would jive with my time zone (Central) but it seems to have corrected itself now. I had the setting in Automatic at first and it was way off even though I had great reception to most all of the satellites. hrs. I waited a while and tried the Automatic setting once again and it seems to be fine now. SMH. But, the maps are not present. In the info. they are all saying “inactive content” but the licenses are there. I cannot navigate anywhere nor poly a course because it doesn’t know where lm at! WTF? Before I Box this thing back up and ram it up their keisters, is there possibly a debug setting that possibly got disabled that you folks can help me with? I have reloaded the FW 1.07 a couple of times to see if that was an issue but to know avail. Thanx for the help!
  3. 4200 NEX Backup camera issue.

    Pioneer would'nt fix my 8100. So, the dealer credited me full price plus $175.00 and they rolled me in to an 8200. Better unit and the camera works. Pioneer sucks as far as they "forcibly" make you get the successor because they WILL NOT repair a unit still within the warranty. Lame, lame, lame. But, I got a better unit but.....
  4. power off

  5. AVIC 8100 automatically goes to usb/ipod mode

    This was a brand new unit from a Pioneer retailer, eh?
  6. power off

    Do you have an 8200??
  7. power off

    .......and it turns the screen black. Thats it. The unit is still powered up.
  8. 4200 NEX Backup camera issue.

    Your unit is probably a lemon like mine was. It is back in Pioneers lap right now getting the same issue fixed. Mine is an 8100. Good luck. Bud
  9. Adding HERE Maps To Thumb Drive For Synctool Update

    I neve got the chance to try....its on the FedEx truck back to Pioneer
  10. AVIC 8100 automatically goes to usb/ipod mode

    Maybe related but my 8100 is on its way back to Pioneer because I had a similar issue with the backup camera. The damn park assist lines in the reverse camera window would come on when I first powered it on in the morning. I had it switched OFF in the system!! My rear cam just flat didn't work..period. I received a lemon and it is on the way back. This is the second time it has gone back to them. Seriously Rethinking my future relationship with Pioneer products. I should have kept my heavily modded F90bt in the truck. At least I wouldn't be driving around with a big hole in my dashboard! Bud
  11. Installing Latest firmware, NEX 7000 Question

    No you do not. I see you read the section on the parking brake bypass and that is all that is necessary. I updated mine and I DO NOT have the wire grounded nor hooked up. It is just rolled up with a cable tie. It works fine and no occasional nag screen with a DVD in it either. Just follow the update instructions and you should be fine. Good luck! Bud

  13. Adding HERE Maps To Thumb Drive For Synctool Update

    I can clarify. I downloaded the 2015 Q3 HERE maps that were eluded to on this forum. I went to that site and downloaded all of the maps, poi's, extended poi's, buildings, licenses, etc. Most folks have done this successfully using the flash/update script (similar to the test mode I used on my F90BT) and then "forcedly" copying them into the folders. I was just wondering if I could just replace the existing files I got from Naviextras and replace them with the downloaded HERE files and THEN try to put them in using the synctool in the nav pull down menu. It's no big deal. at the risk of hosing this unit I guess I will do it like all the rest. Thanx!
  14. Hi, Guys! I just downloaded the updates provided to me through Naviextras and am going to update my 8100NEX tomorrow. I had a thought, however. Is it possible to use his same thumb drive via the Synctools protocol if I were to add the 2015 Q3 maps and licenses I downloaded recently? I was going to replace all of the associated files in their respective folders, poi's, buildings, etc, and try it. Would it work or should I just update the maps as it is spelled out here in the forum? Thanx, Bud
