  1. I am having issues with my 4400NEX (latest firmware) and CarPlay via WIFI. Wifi CarPlay works flawlessly with my iphone X on v13.3.1. If it doesn't connect automatically, I can go to the Top Menu Screen select the phone icon and my iPhone X is listed. I can then select my iphone and it connects via wifi. No issues. Now I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max on v13.3.1, I have connected it to the 4400NEX via usb, bluetooth and wifi and it works perfectly the 1st time. The problem is when I turn the truck off and start the truck up again the 4400NEX wifi doesn't connect to my iPhone. So I go to the to
  2. I created this thread dedicated to our wireless CarPlay issues with the new Pioneer receivers. Who is having issues and is there anything you’ve done to fix it? Have you called pioneer on the issue and what was their response? How has Apple allowed this to happen, they have such a tight grasp on their products and other manufacturers who integrate with their ecosystem?
  3. During the upgrade to the 1.06 firmware I got a error message that basically says press the home button and wait for HU to auto recover. The HU never auto recover and tries to install firmware again but now it says upgrading from 0.00 to 0.00. Regardless if I try to go thru the USB or the SD card it just fails and the whole process starts over after I hit the home buttons. I tried anything the manual says about reseting to factory and I get the unit out of this loop! Any advice or help on how to at least get it to recover by to Factory default? I thought maybe I could try install the 1.02
  4. Howdy. I’m using a AVH-W4500NEX. When placing a call with CarPlay, the caller hears their own voice with a horrific echo. I can’t figure out how to make this go away. It does it on any iPhone I try with it. I’ve tried with wireless CarPlay and USB (WiFi and Bluetooth shut off on my phone). My phone has been set back to factory settings. It doesn’t help. Could this just be a bad unit? I was thinking of swapping it for the same model.
  5. I have an interesting phenomena that occurs with my AVH-W4500NEX. When connected wireless, running CarPlay, and with Waze and a streaming audio such as Pandora or Spotify active, the unit will crash and reboot. Oddly, it does this in only at one particular intersection along my commute route (that I have so far discovered). The audio stream will begin to break up, the map will stop updating and then the Pioneer unit will crash and reboot. Most times, my iPhone SE will reconnect but not always. This happens in the same location regardless of which direction I am traveling. I plan to
  6. I recently installed a new 8500NEX and had no problems setting up the WiFi connection for both my and my wife’s iPhones. Last week, my phone died and was replaced with a new one. After performing the restore, the 8500 network credentials were still in the phone, but it wouldn’t connect to the HU. It has a check mark next to the 8500 in the network list, so it seems as if it’s connected, but it’s not. I figured it was because of the different MAC address of the new phone so I had it “forget” the network, reset the 8500 password and RE-joined the 8500. Still won’t connect (as far as CarPlay is c
  7. I just installed an AVH2550NEX. When I use my iPhone X running iOS 12.3.1, the icons down the left hand side of the CarPlay screen are very slow in responding. When you hit the button, it flashes as it recognizes the touch but takes hitting it 10/12 times before it actually switches to that app or the home screen. The screen is responsive on all other place. I have tried using different model iPhones from the family, some running the same iOS and the unit works just fine. I have updated the firmware to current, used Genuine Apple lightning cable, rebooted and completely reset the iPhone and ha
  8. I've seen several posts regarding the bypass to enable video while driving, none really answer my question. I guess my goal is to be able to have video playing while in motion but ONLY on the rear monitor. I frequently have my 4 year old in the backseat and have the headrest monitor playing a video from a DVD or the SD card. In my Jeep, I have the 4200 HU with the bypass installed so I can play video on the rear screen. I tried using the wired Android Auto and CarPlay but you cannot control the rear output source and it simply mirrors the HU. I just got the 4400 and was wondering the
  9. Hey everyone, new to the forum, did a search and came up empty. Installed iOS 11 on my iPhone 7plus last night and now Carplay doesn't work. Anyone else having a similar issue? The head unit doesn't even recognize the phone. The phone DOES charge when plugged in via the USB port (#1). I also did the 1.15 firmware update via that usb port so I know that's not the issue. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  10. I have a 8200 NEX. I am trying to make carplay work. I have plugged into the USB1 cable to my iPhone and changed settings. It now sees an iPod and plays the musis ok but there is nothing that looks like carplay. What is the trick to making this work?
  11. Hey all, playing around with my new AVIC-6000 NEX. Have the latest and greatest firmware that allows CarPlay. But for some reason, when I use Siri in CarPlay, it seems to take a minute for the speech to get from me to my iPhone 6, almost like lag. I'll say something, then about 3-5 seconds later I'll start to see Siri on screen recognize me speaking. AM I doing something wrong here?
  12. My Goal: To be able to use one of the USB Ports on the back for Carplay and the other for App Radio. I've just installed the 8100NEX in my car. I followed the install instructions and I'm not getting the results. My setup: USB 1: USB extension (included in box) to a lightning cable to the phone directly. Working fine for carplay. USB 2: Lightning cable paired with the HDMI both connected to the Apple AV adapter. So, Carplay works perfectly. but when connecting to the other lighting: nothing. Any help?
  13. I am having Avic 5000 nex with Iphone 5s running IOS 8.1. In Carplay all the album art displayed for Music related applications is very hard to see in the background. This issue started happening after upgrading to IOS 8.1. Any one experiencing similar kind of issue?
  14. Hi everybody! I'm currently having a lot of issues with my 9 months old Appradio 4 unit. Some days ago, I wasn't able to make my iPhone 9.2.1 work with the unit... It seemed that the unit was unable to detect the cellphone, so I was unable to run Carplay as usual. Following Pioneers instructions, I reseted the device, restored the iPhone, changed the cable, attached it directly to the usb1 port in the radio... but nothing happened. The funny part is that if you connect the iPhone to the usb and then turn on the contact in the car, it starts charging, but no Carplay nor detection as iPhone,
  15. Hey all - I recently installed a 4000NEX into my 2013 VW Golf and have, at this point, only installed the USB cable in order to utilize Carplay. I'm interested in adding the HDMI cable in order to enable the Appradio and Mixtrax functionality and I have 2 questions regarding this: 1) Adding the HDMI cable using the Apple Lightning Digital AV Adapter - does this impact the Carplay functionality at all? and, more importantly 2) Does anyone know of a way to connect the male end of a lightning cable to the male end of a USB cable? The setup in my car is a USB port that I insta
  16. Is it possible to update AVIC F60BT(India) with AVIC F60DAB? The reason I want to do this is Pioneer India wont release a firmware update for CarPlay, so I'm looking for alternatives. I'm not sure but I think hardware wise both models are the same. I'm not bothered with losing my local map content after the update, just want to get CarPlay working. Is there anyway of force updating? http://www.pioneer.eu/uk/products/archive/AVIC-F60DAB/page.html http://pioneer-india.in/shop/avic-f60bt/
  17. Just finished my install this weekend of an AVIC-8000NEX into my 2011 Traverse XL with Rear Seat Entertainment and Bose Sound. I got everything working and LOVE this deck, but I'm having one very annoying issue. I have loaded videos on an SD card and I play them to the rear seat entertainment system. This works fantastic and is so much easier than dealing with DVD's, but as soon as I plug in my iPhone (USB-1, carplay), the movie stops playing the the SD option in the source menu turns grey. Interestingly enough, if I'm playing music from the SD card and do the exact same thing, the mu
  18. Hi guys, Does anyone know how to get Carplay working for AVICF60BT (India)? There is no firmware update available on Pioneer's official website. AVICF60DAB which has identical hardware already has Carplay available, but it's not available for AVICF60BT. Any help is appreciated.
  19. My blackberry Q10 gave up the ghost so it was time to upgrade my device. Due to my employers inability to adequately support anything but iPhones I went to the dark side and settled for an iPhone6. At first I thought it might be cool to make use of the "integration" between my AVIC and iPhone rather than the limited Bluetooth streaming supported via my BB. Well, here is how my first three attempts to use CarPlay went: Attempt #1) I updated the AVIC firmware to 1.08 as required and plugged my iPhone into USB1 with the apple supplied lightning cable. About 10 secs later the AVIC crashed
  20. Hello everyone. Just had a 4100NEX installed. All was working well with the microphone. Only 2 days later, the microphone doesn't work. I'm not sure, but it seems to have happened when I updated my phone to iOS 8.4. But that wouldn't explain why the microphone doesn't work with the bluetooth Pioneer features, right? Do these microphones go out so easily? Or is there maybe a setting or something that controls the microphone? In my Jetta, the route for tucking the mic cable is hellacious and I'd hate to do it again. Thank you all for your help.
  21. 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 g
  22. From the WWDC today: "CarPlay: Audio apps, now supports apps by automakers to control things in the car. More kinds of screens, HiDPI. Wireless CarPlay. Apple to get in car without taking phone out of the bag and start experiencing CarPlay effortlessly." Coming Fall 2015. http://9to5mac.com/2015/06/08/carplay-ios-9/#more-383625
  23. Hi, I installed an AVIC-5000NEX in my 2011 Ram 1500 yesterday. I used the iDataLink Maestro to enable steering controls. The firmware shows to be 1.081000 on the head unit from the factory and I am using an iPhone 6 with the latest iOS installed. When I plug the iPhone into the unit(in USB port 1) it immediately recognizes it as an iPod and does not enable CarPlay. What am I missing? Thanks!
  24. So who else is upset after spending money on a fancy NEX-8000? http://9to5mac.com/2015/02/09/ios-8-3-brings-wireless-carplay-to-the-iphone/
  25. Hi All, I have an iPhone 6 plugged into my NEX-4000 and if I try to browse any app on the iPhone 6 while plugged in the deck stops all audio. Has anyone else seen this?
