  1. I know this is an old thread but just want to confirm that the VSS wire is in fact the yellow wire, pin 17, second plug down. Just installed an AVIC-X940-BT in a 2005 Toyota Highlander 3.3L, and on this particular unit as similar series models the VSS connection aids in eco fuel efficiencies, and accuracy of GPS. To gain access it’s best to remove the glovebox for proper splicing. To remove push two bushings inward at the sides and pull forward, then unscrew softclose wire behind the glovebox on the right, lastly remove two black plastic pushpins along the hinge using needle nose pliers. Glovebox comes completely out to expose the ECM. Oh yeah, if you haven’t it’s a good time to change the carbon filter that sits behind the glovebox. ; ^ )
  2. X930-BT Turn By Turn Navigation Commands Not Working

    So I contacted Pioneer and was instructed to give the unit a reset by holding mode, and left track button on start-up. I tried the reset option first with no improvement, then was told to try clear user-settings option, where neither did not even reset the sound settings. I was told if this option did not correct things that I should most likely send it in for a flat fee, north of $100.
  3. So I updated the unit to 5.00 and now the unit doesn't give turn by turn voice navigation commands. Map shows direction but if I go of course it doesn't re-route, and when I get to my destination I finally get a command saying "You have arrived at your destination". Tried resetting with "mode" and "reverse track" button press but still no go.
  4. X930-BT Turn By Turn Navigation Commands Not Working

    Thanks Ron S. So here's what it's doing... When I tried pressing the volume knob after entering a destination it gave a voice prompt for the distance to the next turn, but nothing else. I've tried resetting and going into the menu settings with no change. The in-route arrow does not follow the plotted course. Nor am I given an ETA, arrow indication on upcoming exits/turns. Also the street I'm traveling isn't indicated at the bottom.
  5. X930-BT Turn By Turn Navigation Commands Not Working

    Unfortunately I'm still without turn-by-turn functions and street indicators for this unit. However all radio, blue-tooth, I-device connections, phone, etc. work properly, it's just simply problematic in the GPS/map functions. Would like to get this unit working properly as I have upcoming travels. Any advice is appreciated.
  6. X930-BT Turn By Turn Navigation Commands Not Working

    Got the Testmode going, entered User option to find PRG0 and PRG1, didn't see a /USER/PRG.FLG file so where do I go from here?
  7. X930-BT Turn By Turn Navigation Commands Not Working

    Thanks for your help RonS... Finally had a little time to get back to this but unfortunately I haven't been able to get into Testmode to access those files, using hold on home, then previous, forward, previous, forward, previous, forward. As of now if I input a destination it will briefly indicate an eta, as well as green route outline, but no short-distance indicator screen, or voice directives. Coincidentally I've since installed an X920-BT in another vehicle that works perfectly so now I'm even more stumped!
  8. X930-BT Turn By Turn Navigation Commands Not Working

    Ok, so would it be correct to point to the firmware being the issue? And if so how do I go back to older/default versions?
  9. X930-BT Turn By Turn Navigation Commands Not Working

    Settings are all correct... Voice, volume, regional, still nothing until end of route. Yes it would re-route as designed once I deviated from the calculated path. Honestly (sheepishly)I didn't know the 6.0 was available at the time I picked up the 5.0 : ^ (
  10. X930-BT Turn By Turn Navigation Commands Not Working

    Tried battery disconnect but still no voice navigation or map re-routing when off course.
  11. X930-BT Turn By Turn Navigation Commands Not Working

    Will give it a try and report back.
  12. Hi, Not sure what the EU in your title is for, but I have the backup for this.
  13. Once my destination is entered my maps roams and changes streets when at a standstill. This doesn't happen as much so on expressways but especially so in downtown areas. Anyone have an idea of whats the problem?
  14. Wireless Backup Camera Installed......GREAT!

    Sounds great! What model is it that you used?
  15. Need x910bt backup files

    I know it's been a while since this post but if you still have the 3.1 software for the X910BT I could surely use it. My unit restarts when connected to I-phone bluetooth, and need the maps for the three units that I have.
  16. best quality sound for avic x930 bt

    Try these: 3, max, 3, 2, 4, 4, max, 5. You can smooth out the treble if drums/cymbols are too harsh by decreasing the last setting.
  17. iOS 5 and F90BT

    Agreed on Pioneer dragging a$$ to at least keep the units relevant with support and constant changes. I have 4 AVIC's (2 F900BT's, 2 X910BT's) and upgrades can be frustrating especially when Pioneer releases official software at $100+ and only one use per unit! Don't get me wrong I do like them but you would not think an electronic giant like Pioneer to release a product and drop the ball i.e., support, dated software, and incompatibility with HD radio and XM modules. However my wife contacted Apple that said they had no knowledge of the current problems. To leave a description of the problems at Apple.com/feedback so their techs can find a solution. So maybe with enough feedback from users they'll fix the problem.
  18. iOS 5 and F90BT

    Ok, so I got in touch with Pioneer today. There was no issue as far as sending the unit in for password retrieval. But as far as the IOS5 software issues go they have received several complaints and suggest for me to take it up with Apple. Hopefully Apple fixes this in the software, but I hope this doesn't mean Pioneer is leaving previous model owners in the cold. This file from the previous post: -With regards to the current in-dash navigation models, AVIC-X930BT and AVIC-Z130BT, all are certified to support iPhone and work with IOS 5.
  19. iOS 5 and F90BT

    Yeah I'm using the iPhone 4S with the iOS 5 too, and can't get video with my F900-BT or my X910-BT. I'm sending a 900-BT in for password retrieval on Monday so I'll ask about this issue then.
  20. Will this procedure work in my case of having a F900-BT and no password?
  21. x910 backup files

    Same here I'm stuck with the splash screen and need the backup file or a solution for my X910.
  22. Latest 3.0 Map Software Install

    I just picked up an AVIC-X910BT that came with the map upgrade 3.0 software (SD's A& that Pioneer sells. I also have two other units in different vehicles F900BT, and another X910BT. Both have the video bypass mods. but could use the new map software. My questions are can I use the software on more than one unit, and if so will it kick out my bypass mod.?

    Ok been trying to update my software so that maybe my HD tuner will do more than tune to one frequency with no further adjustments. Even tried a second tuner that I have for another AVIC. So I'm using what seems to be a generic 32gb SD card. After downloading the 2.8 firmware, then locating the firmware update file and opening it to get to the subfolder LPUE080, I drag the LPUE080 folder to the SD icon on my computer and it appears to extract the file to the SD. Problem is when I load it in the AVIC the download starts but immediately says executable file is wrong! I'm stumped, is there something I'm doing wrong?
  24. I'm a newbie to the forum so bear with me. I seem to have all my basis covered with this install but when I click on the HD icon the screen tunes to one frequency, and doesn't allow further tuning. I have the antenna splitter with one end going to my head unit and one end to the HD tuner. However FM station tuning is great and AM is satisfactory. What's seems to be the problem? Oh yeah, my firmware is 1000XX or something could this be the issue? Any info. is greatly appreciated.

    In the process of trying to update firmware just not sure exactly how to transfer the file onto the top layer of the SD card. Any advice here?
