  1. Android in car with Atrix Webtop

    You left out a significant feature in your hack!!! Specifically, you need to give the unit the ability to automatically call the nearest hospital to recover the bodies of everyone in the car who dies in the massive, flaming car wreck that will result from one looking at photos, streaming video from an Android phone, playing Angry Birds, and typing in new station names to create in Pandora. Of course, the unit might not even work after the wreck unless you give the AVIC a hardened, aviation-grade black box structure that can survive 150g decelerations and temperatures typical of a massive gasoline fire. Are you a also a mechanical and structural engineer? If not, I can recommend one to help....
  2. What is the best way to hook android phones into the 930?

    The best way is with a long piece of yarn.
  3. New Z140/X940 Features

    They left out a significant feature. Specifically, these new AVICs should also be given the ability to automatically call the nearest hospital to recover the bodies of everyone in the car who died in the massive, flaming car wreck that resulted from one looking at photos, streaming video from an iPod, playing Angry Birds, and typing in new station names to create in Pandora. Of course, the unit might not even work after the wreck unless the AVIC is given a hardened, aviation-grade black box structure that can survive 150g decelerations and temperatures typical of a massive gasoline fire.
  4. Avic X940BT on Pioneer's site

    Really surprised there isn't a massive JasonH-led thread on all the new Pioneer stuff. He was ALL OVER this stuff at the last CES with Pioneer. Where are the hundreds of new insights? The massive new discussion threads? The personal inside-info he gets from Pioneer? Hello??? JasonH? Hello??
  5. Where can I get the magnetic plate the GPS antenna sits on?

    You can use adhesive aluminum tape wrapped around any small, square-shaped piece of plastic or something. About 3 cm on a side should make a good ground plane that's roughly correct for the GPS or SiriusXM frequencies (L-band).
  6. What is the best way to hook android phones into the 930?

    One can stream Pandora or whatever you want from an Android phone to the Pioneer units pretty easily, assuming the Bluetooth versions are compatible. Just use the Bluetooth Audio device as the AV source on the Pioneer...don't get the nice Pandora controls other than pause, play, and in some cases, skip....also don't get the "station" art. But it generally works pretty well.
  7. x920bt firmware and map upgrade to CNSD-210FM for free?

    Sounds like you live in a bad part of town. Also, didn't realize Best Buy was still selling any Pioneer models of this...thought they stopped a couple of years ago. Hmm....interesting. Sure it was an "open" box and not a "stolen" box?
  8. The 2011 map update for the X920BT did NOT update the XM logos. Sorry. Oh well. Ask Pioneer why...see if they answer you.
  9. How long before X930BT drains the car battery?

    OK, almost everyone in this thread is talking about CURRENT (i.e., amperes, or amps) as if it's the same as CAPACITY (i.e., Watt-hrs or Amp-hours depending on the way you think of it). None of this thread makes any sense. You guys have to multiply the typical power drawn by the unit in the mode you would be using it in (in WATTS) and multiply by time...then do the necessary conversions.
  10. Make sure you delete any duplicate contacts from your phone book, and link/pair any contacts that are different numbers for the same person. Also remove any special characters or extra spaces from the names of any contact. Those cause problems. If you have an Android device and don't want to merge/delete duplicate contacts by hand, you can convert all your phone contacts to Google contacts, then synch your contacts with gmail. Then delete them all from the phone. Then use the gmail "remove/merge" duplicates function on the gmail website. Then resynch your phone with Google to reload the contacts into the phone.
  11. ...thus continuing Pioneer's tradition of not consulting with a single human interface or GUI design expert before releasing software updates. In this case, any undergraduate human factors engineering major in college would've told them not to waste screen real estate (and add confusion) by putting up a button that 99% of the users of the product will NEVER touch. The same college student would've told them not to change the icon for the iPod source button to THE CONNECTOR for the iPod instead of the actual iPod icon itself that used to be there. Just idiotic. What's next....changing the icons for the AM and FM radio sources to a little image of, say, a capacitor?
  12. Okay...my buddy upgraded his X920BT to the new "2011" (haha) map software and firmware upgrade. Pioneer changed the icon in the AV source selection screen for the iPod to a picture of an iPod connector on the end of the cable instead of an actual iPod itself. Umm...WTF? Seriously....WTF? Do Pioneer's engineers think for users will be familiar with a picture of the CONNECTOR than an actual iPod??? I'm constantly at a loss to understand the head-scratchingly bizarre decisions Pioneer continually makes. I know this is a very trivial example, but it stands out as one of the less explicable choices....
  13. Help plz, newb questions about X930BT

    I'd LOVE to stream some video to the blonde chick at the start of that video...mmm. I'd TOTALLY stream some video at her...
  14. Just Updated AVIC D3

    Uh yeah...the D3 came with a plastic stylus in the box to do resets....
  15. remove phones

    Sure there is....sometimes the Bluetooth stack gets corrupted and one needs to start from scratch to repair the Bluetooth stack for that connection and re-pair the phone. Pioneer blew it on this one...should be a way to delete registered pairings on the Pioneer side of the equation. Fail.
