  1. The fact that no one has posted an answer to this in 5 years seems to answer the question. "No".
  2. Probably my fault trying to make it behave like my phone. Sometimes you forget the app is running on the head unit and not the phone which has direct internet access. For example the unit has Google maps installed - which works great while I'm at home (on my LAN wifi) but when I'm driving I can't enter or change my route. I guess set up my phone as a hotspot and tether the headunit but that's also a hassle every time you drive. Also, it normally boots up in 3 seconds with everything as you left them (like sleep on a phone), but if you don't start the car for a week, it shuts down and does
  3. Yes, 3.32 is the latest. You said you did a factory reset after installing? That cures most oddball side effects.
  4. I just wanted something that was Android based (so i could install 1000's of apps) and supported wireless AndroidAuto & Carplay. I replaced my 13 yr old Z110-BT with an ATOTO A6 Pro from Amazon for around $200. It has some quirks but I'm satisfied with the sound.
  5. It might help to know what brand and model phone you are using. It isn't clear whether the problem is with your head unit or phone. I know my Samsung phone has separate audio settings for media and phone calls. Do you have another BT device to test your phone's music volume? BTW I no longer have a Pioneer so I'm relying on memory as to what settings are available on the x940 for each BT pairing. I seem to remember having separate permission settings for music and phone calls.
  6. Here's the BT Firmware that came with the 2013 update. Obviously you'll need to unzip the file. FIRMWARE.zip

    None of the newer (modern) head units are plug compatible with the old X910-BT. So whatever unit or brand you decide to buy, you will need to splice in to the car's wiring or find a conversion harness (depends on how the X910 was wired). There is no plug-n-play upgrade solution. I recently wanted to modernize my car which had a Z110-BT (with the latest available Pioneer maps/firmware). I wanted Carplay/Android auto support. After pricing Pioneer and other major brands I decided they were not worth it when I could buy a $200 unit on Amazon from a brand I'd never heard before (Atoto). So
  8. I have no experience with this unit or the process to convert to another language. However I assume that TestMode must be triggered by hard buttons since it must be able to get into Testmode while/before the unit boots. So - did you try pressing - and + while booting? I don't know about those other hard buttons since I don't recognize the symbols. If that doesn't work, I'm sorry I have no other ideas. Sooner or later someone who has done this will see your question and give a definitive answer.
  9. If you searched AVIC411 you'd find at least one link to download the files. See this thread. This firmware should work with most Z and X series.
  10. Moved to Nex subforum
  11. 2017 was the last map update for the Z-1xx-BT and X9xx-BT. I'm not sure what link you want but here's Pioneer US/CA firmware & maps: Navigation System Map Updates
  12. It is permanent unless another password gets set. Some original owners swear that they got locked out and never set-up a password. So keep the files in case you need them again.
  13. Before doing anything major I'd try switching to the backup firmware. The AVIC headunits have to firmware copies. So whenever the firmware is updated, the older one is preserved. The one that gets executed at boot time is controlled by whether PRG.FLG exists. You can force it to use the backup version using that file. Boot into (Super)Testmode. Navigate to the USER directory. If a file named PRG.FLG exists, delete it. (it is just an empty file). If PRG.FLG doesn't exist, add one by creating an empty file on your PC, copy it to the TestMode SD, then boot into TestMode and copy PRG.FLG
  14. If it's so easy, why not just post the method here so everyone can benefit? I can think of one reason, but since there's already posted some free fixes, there's not much profit to be had.
  15. First, its not clear what file you are referring to. Mine, or the pionara post immediately above yours. Regardless, the files are still available, but you must be registered to download files hosted on avic411. Since you are now registered, try again.
  16. Bluetooth issues have been known to happen after the BT update. Often they are fixed by disconnecting the car's battery for 30 seconds. In my case (Samsung Note - Android) I had to go to an older version of the BT firmware from the 2013 update.
  17. Since this was a pre-installed headunit I have no idea what the previous owner might of done to hack it. If it is running some hacked firmware like Condi's Hackmode, I can't help. Remove anything in the SD slot behind the screen just in case. There's no other user replaceable SD within the unit. Normally, the SD is just used for playing media files (audio and movies). It is also used to install firmware and boot into TestMode. It isnt necessary for normal operation. These units don't ask for an update on their own. There's no external data connection. So if it asked to update something, i
  18. Has this unit ever had a map/software upgrade? Some functions will not accept input if the parking brake is not detected. It sounds like you are saying that you can select the language so it might not be a parking brake problem. Just some random things to consider: Did the thief disturb and of the electrical wiring? Is there an anti-theft system in the truck? Did you have aftermarket HIDs installed? Did it ask you for a password when it booted? IIRC, the headunit only asks for language selection on a full reset. Disconnecting the battery only resets a few things. but not the languag
  19. Please describe the exact problem and how you got there. This isn't a common problem AFAIK. Is this the first time you've upgraded? Also, is the parking brake set (or the parking brake been correctly bypassed)?
  20. To be safe, don't put them on the same card at the same time. You don't need two SDs. You can install ShortFuse then format and re-use the same card for the map update.

  23. Find a 4 or 8 GB SD. The AVIC boot loader isn't very sophisticated. I don't know what the max volume it can handle.
