  1. I think that will do it. I don't remember when they switched support for traffic tuners. I think it was in the first update after 2010.
  2. The links I provided work. But those on Navigation.com are broken. Each release includes maps and firmware. I suggest you check the manual for specifics on support for iPhone and iTouch devices. If you are still running on the original Z110 firmware (IIRC it was v 1.xxx), you might have serious issues installing the 2017 update version posted in this thread (for Z130 & Z140). Some people with original Z110 firmware had odd problems related to the tuner. I suspect it is caused by drivers for a different traffic tuner that is no longer supported. I suggest that you install firmware specifically released for the Z110/Z120 to ensure you get the updated traffic tuner drivers (even if you don't use the new traffic tuner).
  3. It's an old problem for probably all Pioneer headunits. I assume you are using USB or SD media - not iPod. You can try using the technique described here: Sort order Yes it is a PITA! That's why I use my iTouch for all my MP3 files.
  4. If anyone tries the "SERVICE PASS OFF" method (a few posts above), please post your results and model info to verify it works. From the description it seems like this would be needed each time the unit is cold-booted (as when battery is removed) since it doesn't clear the password - just gets you past the password prompt. So if you go that route, I recommend that you print the instructions and keep them in the glove compartment.
  5. Not other than keep trying other things. Maybe disconnect your battery for a minute to force a cold boot. There some stuff in TestMode (there's several pages of options) to test Bluetooth and Program Forced Write can force a BT firmware update. Careful - there's some dangerous stuff there too. It could also be a hardware problem. I recall others that had similar problems. But repair is kind of expensive and for a unit this old it might not be worth it.
  6. Very unlikely that there's something wrong with the \Firmware files. Only a guess... Try a different (less <= 8 GB) SD. You only need the \Firmware files on it. BTW, what version were you updating from since this 3.32 version has been around for many years. No need to update unless you were running an old version.
  7. Z150BH to F50BT transformation?.. possible?

    I'm reluctant to guess since the older models are different than the Z150. But ignoring the DVD region issue, you might be able to pull off installing the EU firmware/maps (the F50BT version) by just replacing the CARDINFO.CIF file on the EU update SD with one for a US Z150. Here's CARDINFO for Z150 from the 2016 update - the year shouldn't matter. Courtesy of nezfotnemom. I don't see any F50BT update images posted. I guess you could by one, but there's no guarantee it will work. CARDINFO.CIF
  8. Your problem is caused by something is wrong with the update SD. Very possible that you didn't use the correct password when you unzipped the file. So some files are missing. This advice has been posted here many times. If the map update fails to complete and you are stuck with a wrong or incorrect SD or similar message: boot into testmode. go into file maintenance remove the file USER\SYSTEM\Download\StartKnd.log This will kick the unit out of upgrade mode, and it should restart into regular mode on next power up (remember to remove the TestMode SD). You should still be running with your previous firmware and maps.
  9. Sorry, never tried it. If it boots from USB (do you mean into testmode?) seems like you could try copying the upgrade files into the root of and empty memory stick. There's also the possibility of using Force Program Write in Testmode. I think you can specify the source device as USB.
  10. Power antenna control for X920bt

    I have it in ANT CTRL in AV System Settings (Power or Radio). Since I have a traffic tuner, I set it to Power. But my antenna is just a wire in the windshield, so nothing to wear out.
  11. The splash screen doesn't get changed. You wouldn't want it changing if you had a custom image. You may be able to refresh it manually in System Settings/Splash Screen. If you were running firmware v1.x, there would be big differences and new functions (Pandora and AHa). Don't forget to update the Bluetooth firmware in the BT settings. It uses this same SD image.
  12. On your map update SD, replace CARDINFO.CIF with this one. CARDINFO.cif
  13. F930bt test mode

  14. Parasitic Battery Drain - AVIC 8200 NEX

    A disclaimer: I know nothing about a 8200, so I can't help much. But I was wondering if you leave anything plugged-in to the USB (an iPod maybe) that could consume power even if the ignition is off.
  15. Pin 38 in your wiring diagram looks promising. I checked my 987 diagram and it looks comparable to my pin 19 (both BRN/WHT and go to a module on the right side of the frunk). To access you'll have to remove some of the liner plastic trim. Probable just held by a few screws.
