  1. Hi Gurus of all things NEX I recently brought my wife a 5100NEX for her 2011 Nissan Altima (BIG IM SORRY PRESENT). Anyhow, I have an iPhone 6, and when I plugged in my 6 to her deck to make sure everything was working good, I had 0 problems. So after I showed her the car, and the radio she plugged in her 5s and we took off for a trip down to wine country. Well, about 10 minutes into the drive, the 5100 stopped responding in Car Play mode. The CD still worked, the Radio still worked, bluetooth with the 5s was flawless, but we couldn't get CarPlay to work... I have no idea what's going on and I can't find anything on any support forums that lists the 5s as having issues with CarPlay. It's running iOS 8.3 however I haven't done the firmware update to the NEX yet.. (as a side note, we unplugged her 5s and plugged in my 6 and carplay worked perfectly) It maybe worth noting that In my Ford Fusion I have the 7100NEX and her phone acts goofy in my car as well. I haven't tried to plug in someone else's 5s yet too see if it's just her phone... If anyone has heard anything related to this issue please let me know... I'm going to do the firmware updates today to both of the decks to see if that that fixes the issue. Thanks in advance for all your help guys & gals. Respectfully, Bryan Garcia

  3. Poor AM Radio Quality

    Crap... I just saw that you had replied... okay... So In my car I didn't connect that blue wire to anything, so I need to connect that blue wire from the vehicle harness to a +12 wire like the blue & white or red? I'll try to this evening, I hope that works...
  4. Hi App Radio Gurus I finally installed my App Raido in my Ford Fusion and it's the perfect addition to my car, minus one thing; I get HORRIBLE AM Radio Reception... The FM radio works fantastic, actually better than the the Stock radio, I don't loose FM going thru the canyons to get home any longer. **I should note that when I say Horrible AM Reception I mean NO reception... I work at KFI AM 640 (one of the strongest if not the strongest AM stations) here in Los Angeles and even right next to the broadcast antennas AM640 on the stereo doesn't work, I get nothing but fuzz** Has anyone experienced these issues with AM Radio Reception, and is there something that I can do about this? I used a harness from PAC to make the install easier, it has an Antenna Trigger Wire but nothing to connect it to on the SPH-DA02. I can't figure out what I did wrong... Someone Help!! Thanks in advance for reading this guys...
