  1. I have contacted pioneer and they have no answer. They said they “will escalate” the problem to a higher level. They offered no way to reload the firmware nor roll back to a previous firmware. I think I will have to wait until the next firmware and cross my fingers. So frustrating.
  2. Since upgrading to 2.0 I’m having issues with my iPhone music app freezing. Anyone else notice this or have a fix? On the unit, if I click on the music app it shows the “playlist”, “albums”, “songs” menu but there is nothing populated in them and everything is blank and the screen is frozen. If I look at the iPhone then music app it sometimes is frozen but has a populated screen and other times it is just a empty/blank screen. After some time the music app spontaneously reboots and it works as expected. This happens every time I use it and it’s quite annoying. I’m gonn
  3. I have gotten to drive around more with firmware 1.3 and have not noted any changes so I am not sure if you’re missing out being on the previous firmware. Maybe it is not relevant but I did happen to read somewhere that when doing the update the parking brake needed to be engaged but I did have it set and the update worked. Not sure why....
  4. I updated with carassist and it worked the first time. Took about 5min total. I have driven about 20min total since the update and have not noticed any changes .
  5. So having the ability to connect to a hotspot with the pioneer radio is an interesting feature. My issue has been that my iPhone deactivates the WiFi after nothing is connected to it for 5-10min. I thought I figured out a fix by using the “TetherMe” tweak always on feature but still the hotspot shut off. I figured out a way to fix this but again it requires jailbreak. I used “Activator 1.9.13” and set up to activate the hotspot when I connect to a CarPlay device and then deactivate the hotspot when I disconnect from a CarPlay device. I set up on the pioneer 8600 to auto connect t
  6. Looks like the firmware is on the pioneer site. https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/NEX/DMH-WT8600NEX?tab=firmware I’m gonna see if it addresses the screen flickering issue....
  7. Regarding the flicker.... I am also experiencing this.. I guess since others are experiencing it it means that my frustrations are shared. I initially thought it was a loose connection but it happens even if I am sitting still. I have tried to wiggle the screen cord and reconnect it without any change. It also is happening intermittently. Sometimes I drive and it doesn’t happen at all, others it flickers every 10-20 seconds. I contacted tech support who asked if I updated the firmware and that the update should fix it. I expressed that I am unable to successfully update it throug
  8. I also was not able to update it through carassist and thought I would try to do it on a usb drive but was unable find it online to download. Based upon the info it looks like it is entirely android auto so it may not necessarily be applicable to my use of the radio.
  9. I just purchased the dmh8600 with the maestro rr this week. I have gotten to ride around for about 2 hours with it and while I love the larger screen, I do have some concerns. 1) there is a way to change the forward/backward tilt on the lcd but I cannot figure it out after reading the install manual. If someone knows please snap some pictures for film a movie on how to do it for us that can’t figure it out. I don’t want to randomly start forcing things and break my $1000 radio! 2) this may be related to #1 but it is kind of a pain to put the lcd screen On and then snake the
  10. After having my AVIC for 4 years I noticed that I started to get this error. It’s not that big of a deal since I have always used my phone for navigation. My main issue was that I could not set my clock and date since it pulls it from the GPS signal with no way to manually set it. I opened up the top of the radio to try to reseat the sensor described above but after removing the top decided it is not worth the hassle to just change the time. I finally figured a way around it by entering the developer menu (instructions in the developer mod thread) using a startup disk in USB1. I ass
  11. I downloaded the appradio app for my iPhone 5 and immediately had the red badge on it showing the number "2" on it. After navigating around a bit this badge changes to "1" but I have no idea what made it reduce. Now I am stuck with this update badge nagging me and I have no idea what I need to do to make it go away. Has anyone else had this issue and know how to fix it??
  12. I have looked all around for this but can't find how to do it. Are you all able to see the current song and artist of the song you are streaming over bluetooth. I know when I stream my android phone to my computer, the song and artist show up but on my avic it is just a blank screen while it plays. Does the unit display this and I just am missing a setting?
