  1. 2013 USA/CAN Maps Download

    Just so I understand completely.... I have a Z110BT that is upgraded to the Z130BT. Are these 2013 maps equivalent to the Z140BT where the map VR is lost. Service Info Screen shows version is currently 3.000 and the bluetooth firmware is currently 3.22. I read in another post that the bluetooth fw update, even to just version 3.24 provides some added options and am wondering if it was just possible to update the bluetooth only assuming that does not affect the VR.
  2. Installing backup cam, have question about wiring

    Per the diagram, I'm guessing that I need to make sure that feed from the violet/white wire and the power (red and black wires) from the camera both need to go to the reverse lights where it tells you to clamp the backup light lead. Hopefully the audio shop actually ran that wire to the backup light lead. Your input would be appreciated. Thanks Murphy
  3. So I've got a DBC466 that I want to hook up to my Z110BT (software upgraded to Z130BT). The headunit was installed by a local audio shop back in '09. In general, I'm seeing a lot of backup cam installs where you need to wire the power into the reverse lights so that the headunit being used can detect the video feed turning on and then showing up on the display. I understand this, but my headunit also has the "Rear View" setting which allows you to view the image while driving and I want to be able to use that feature. I am currently looking at the installation guide and it seems to me that the violet/white power cord takes care of this???? For that reason, I'm guessing I should not wire the camera directly into the reverse lights, correct? Any power source should be sufficient? I attached images of the 2 sections in the installation manual that talks about it.
  4. This isn't a huge deal since I mostly listen to audio and not watch video from my ipod classic, but when the time comes for me to connect my new iphone 5 to my Z130, I'm wondering if anyone has been able to watch video and what adapter are you using? The 30 pin to Lightning adapter that Apple sells does not support video (per their website), so I have a hard time believing that any generic version would support video. I'm guessing it will be time to replace the head unit eventually.
  5. What happened to Avic Feeds?

    I just came across this same problem, giving the error about not being available in the US version of the store. Silly for those of us who have not upgraded to iOS 6 yet. In the meantime, I wonder if just having the app file would allow us to import it into iTunes. Would anyone be able to provide the file?
  6. Z130 software price drop

    I haven't looked in a while because I've had other priorities, and I knew it was going to be later this year when the Z140 / 2012 software upgrade came out, but it looks like the Z130 / 2011 upgrade has been discounted to $84.00 from the original $120.00 now on Pioneer's website. Those people that don't want the Z140 but do want the Z130 upgrade may want to take advantage of it before it disappears.
  7. Leaving iPod connected

    only issue I have is my ipod's battery dying once in a while, but not very often. Maybe once a week. my ipod does not go to sleep.
  8. Ipod and Z120BT Performance?

    strangely enough, the battery on the iphone died on the way home from work yesterday, locked up, so i left it alone, later last night, i put it into shuffle mode on the hu, and this monring it is still in shuffle mode, so, not sure what thats about, but no worries about the shuffle now.
  9. Ipod and Z120BT Performance?

    i know it has a sleep mode but i can't find the auto-shutoff
  10. Ipod and Z120BT Performance?

    I tend to keep my ipod classic connected, in my car at all times. I don't listen to the radio much. I wish the Ipod had a "auto-shutoff" feature. This way, the battery on the ipod doesn't die and seemingly disconnect from the headunit until it is charged enough to power back on. I only take my ipod classic out to update it with new music I have. My other gripe that if I have the ipod set to shuffle (via the head unit), then I turn off my car, when I come back and turn it back on again, I have to put it in shuffle mode again. I probably shouldn't blame Pioneer for this, but it sure would be nice to have my 2 concerns fixed.
  11. Changing source to Pandora via voice control on Z-120?

    you can't change it to that source because in order to use Pandora, you need to activate the PandoraLink software manually on the iphone. I suppose if you have the app enabled all the time, that wouldn't be a problem, but I expect you also want to play your music files from the iphone as well.
  12. S197 Mustang Install

    i had the Shaker 500. I'd have to pull out my receipt, wherever it is, to find out exactly.
  13. S197 Mustang Install

    I had it installed on my 08 GT and didn't need to purchase any adapter for the antenna. I either didn't need it, or it came in the box.
  14. AVIC Feeds

    III would guess there needs to be some kind of Windows emulator. I thought there was one built in by default on the newer os's.
  15. Screen Sensitivity and Shuffle All

    On my way home from work this morning, I forgot to press that button and it wen to the second song, appearing to have shuffled, though the indicator said the shuffle was off. Very strange. I do the same thing with my ipod, it stays connected unless I have new music to add to it. I'll take another look at it this afternoon and try that out (shuffle on the ipod) if needed. Thanks.
