  1. CNDV-80MT released!

    which versions of the navi do these discs support?
  2. No 1-DIN ?? Despair. Hopefully they make something for us standard guys in the future. Even with an N4 I'd shell out for this.
  3. BMW Z4 Speed pulse wire

    I just finished an install and can confirm this is correct. On my 2005 Z4, I got the speed pulse wire at Pin 6 in the cluster harness, a yellow / green-stripe wire. It produces 1 pulse for every .5 MPH, forward or backward, and is extremely accurate. My N4 entered 3D Hybrid mode after about 3 minutes of driving and the Avic gauges are now more 'realtime' accurate than my speedo! Love it. BMW uses universal wiring (why don't more companies?) so this information should be the same for all Z4 (E85 & E86) models. Enjoy!
  4. VSS Wire on a '03 BMW Z4

    The black/white wire will not work, thats part of the CAN BUS and is not compatible with an aftermarket unit like the Avics. I just finished an install and can confirm this is correct.

  5. It depends entirely on the vehicle. I just finished mine and would describe it exactly as you just did. The back of the trim ring sits flush with the dash kit, which leaves two small slits exposed on the left and right side. Its not ugly or terrible or even a botched install, but its just not... perfect. After some measuring, I realized mine was sitting flush with the Metra dash kit, and it was designed that way due to lack of clearance behind the radio. The rear of the thing was compressing the cables against the dash wall as it was, there wasn't room for another half inch of space to make true 'flush' possible.
  6. Cheapest place to get an N4?

    bump guys, help us out here.
  7. bumping this... does the black/white wire from the radio harness work as a VSS wire? Can anyone confirm? I have a Z4, and the radio does change volume as speed increases.
  8. Anyone needing wire info

    Looking for VSS and Reverse wires for a 2005 BMW Z4 3.0i Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
  9. 2008 Ford F-Series Factory Nav

    Remove the HU, take pics of the connectors on the back, post them here, and we can see what we can do. Without actually seeing one, I have no idea. I didn't even know ford oem's pioneer units. See what help a little extra info is? Thanks.
  10. 2008 Ford F-Series Factory Nav

    Yeah, look on a Ford forum, not an Avic forum. Duh. It can likely be done by grounding out the motion sensors. Its like that on Toyota/Lexus navis, tho I have no experience with ford ones so can't say for sure. This is the wrong place to be asking tho.
  11. SIR-PNR2 VS SIR-PNR1

    So if I didn't care about these little reminders, I could use a cheap PNR1 on a new AVIC N4 with the same interface as the newer one? Please?
  12. Cheapest place to get an N4?

    I'm in the market for an N4 now. Anyone have any killer deals or recommendations for websites to get one cheaply? I see they are going for just over $1100 now on eBay. One went for as little as $950, but I don't see that happening much. So, who has found a good place to get one? Thanks!
  13. Just got a GEX-P10XMT for 6 bucks

    I got 2 brand new ones from my local CC for $12.96 each tonight. I have no idea why the price discrepancy vs other posters, but thats still super low. Obviously, I got the last 2 in stock. The people working there had no idea about the clearance, and were initially confused. I told them I read online these were selling for a bargain, and he let me continue to check out. Got one for my D3 and future N4 now. I wasn't even planning on getting XM, but with these prices, why not. Now I just gotta pay XM their blood money.
  14. D3 GPS Antenna mounting

    Under the dash, above and behind the head unit. Just check it first with the unit turned on to make sure you're getting a good signal. I actually went through the pains to mount mine at the back of my roof, but the cord was too short! I started by placing the antenna where I wanted it, and ran the cable all the way down the panels and through the floorboards, and it only came out to the passenger wheel well, about 2 feet short, argh! This is for an SUV of course, but still, grrrr. That said, it works fine where I put it, receiving what looks like 70-80% signal at most times. Pioneer, please make the antenna cable a little longer next time!
  15. Could anyone post pics on grounding of D3

    Hahahahaa.... manbearpig.
