  1. USB Thumbdrive with MP3s - HOW ??? (AVIC D3)

    Your best bet may be to buy a cheap older iPod on eBay and get the iPod adapter.
  2. So I've had an AVIC D3 installed in my MR2 since these unit were released back on 2007. I've got the ipod adapter, the bluetooth module and just today finally got around to switching out the lame Sirius module for the much better XM module (picked one up on eBay). This unit has served me well for years, and honestly, does everything I expect an auto head unit to do. No real desire to swap it out for something newer as long as it's still working. Lately I have been getting an itch to update the unit to the 2012 maps (I'm currently running the ancient maps it came with). Does anyone know of potential downsides? I feel like I've heard stories of people breaking various functions on their units when upgrading. Can anyone confirm whether: A - iPod functionality is affected? I've got an ancient 5th gen iPod Video that I use with the system (why fix what ain't broke) B - Bypass. Does the 2012 update negatively affect the functionality that the motion-lock bypass hack unlocks? This is such an ancient unit, I wonder how often anyone actually visits this forum.
  3. Avic-D3 date

    I feel like your unit should be getting TIME/DATE information from the GPS satellites. As far as I remember the only thing you can change is whether it's daylight saving or not.
