  1. I used the DIYBypass wire with chip. It auto grounds each time you power up. So far so good. http://www.diybypass.com/instructions2.html
  2. I found a firewall and managed to get v.2.3.0 as well as v.2.9.0 working. Thanks!
  3. Yes. Thanks for 2.5.0 if you can. You had experienced the same issue with AR? I think they want to force the upgrades for analytics. Ironically, v.2.9.0 does work with my X-950 but the old compatible apps are not shown because they are too old. I had to force them on with AppEX and they work fine now. I have Cydia but not sure which firewall you installed to make that happen. Can you tell me which one worked for you as I obviously have Cydia as well. Thanks again.
  4. Does anyone still have the .ipa file for v.2.4.0. for iOS? I have been using v.2.3.0 on an iOS6 jail broken phone for almost three years as it was the only version that a) worked with my X-950, allowed me to use App Radio Extensions, and c) allowed some other JB apps to run. For some reason, Pioneer has magically pushed a kill switch on this app. When it launches, it crashes. If I put the phone into airplane mode, then the app stays running but of course does nothing since I need an active connection for Waze, etc. Once I re-enable cell service, the app crashes. I have un-installed, re-
  5. Don't bother to update. I have the same head unit and the F/W update will break the bypass if you have already done so. Basically just convert the files to MP4's if you can. It will play that. If you're running an iPhone, add them via iTunes as a movie which will play w/o loading and unloading SD cards.
  6. I was just going to make a new thread about this until I saw this post. I am experiencing the same issue. I have an iPhone 5 using iOS6 with App radio Extensions installed along with App Radio v.2.3.0. It seems like the only combination that has worked for everything since updating apps and/or App Radio has broken something along the way. Out of nowhere, the Car Media Play button lost it's icon. It would give the old Apple spin logo like when you boot a Mac and then it would give up and just leave a grey icon that says, "App". So, I uninstalled App radio v.2.3.0 and re-installed. It the
  7. Wonder how this will comapre to Car Play... http://www.phonescoop.com/articles/article.php?a=14257
  8. I read somewhere on this site that the later firmware version screws up the bypass. I'm not sure if this is true or not and I would hope someone else can confirm but if that's the case, I'll stay at v.1.03.
  9. Wow! This unit sounds like a nightmare. I still have the X950BH and the only feature I like that they've added was the posted speed limit info on the NAV screen which I really wish I could add to the X950BH but the one feature which I use all the time which was removed was the AppMode display. It was 2D/3D/AppMode. I even asked good 'ol Harry at the Pioneer booth at CES about it and he had no idea why it was dropped (actually he didn't even realize (at the time) that the posted speed limits were going to be imposed). The AppMode display gave a spit screen for the built in NAV and the AppR
  10. That was me (beginning of thread)...early March actually. http://avic411.com/index.php?/topic/38269-pioneer-new-2014-navigation-line-up-is-here/?p=274772
  11. I don't understand why they pulled this app, put it back, pulled it again, and then put it back. I wish I had a firewall on my phone to prevent them from updating my app so I can decide what apps to keep on the phone! Very frustrating.

    In addition, I have noticed that sometimes when the iPhone screen goes into lock mode (where you have to slide to unlock), it will prevent the AppRadio from firing up. This happens when I forget to shut the phone off when leaving the car and come back to it later.
  13. The folks at the Pioneer booth during CES week said they were pushing for March. However, there were still a lot of bugs to be ironed out when I saw it so I wouldn't be surprised if they either 1) pushed it back to April or 2) released the unit with a bunch of bugs and then release a frimware update a month later (like they did with the 2013 AVIC series allowing App Radio to finally work).

    I have an AVIC-X950BH and some of the apps on my unit will not even work (black screen) vs. the regular SPH (App Radio) head units. I don't know how the NEX series is going to play out but it wouldn't surprise me if it exhibits the same issues.
  15. I went to CES and played around with this unit first hand. Half of the features didn't work yet and the unit kept rebooting itself. They said it needed some minor tweaks before its release in March. I would say some major tweaks. I have the 2013 HU and they took away a bunch of stuff. 12 million POI's down to 7.9 due to "the cloud" and no split screen for App Radio mode (w/the map). They said that they may bring that back but not sure. You would think two months prior to release they would have all the features slated ahead of time. I also complained (again) why there isn't speed limit info on
