    Can you guys/gals please provide me with the steps and data I need to get into my 5201NEX & delete / figure out my password. My avic-5201NEX is NOT running the latest version of firmware. & the back story for all you forum lovuhhhs! I bought my avic -5201NEX a few months back, as I know Some of you have read this a million times.... I locked myself out of my 5201 when I unplugged my battery & was prompted for the password to get back in that I have tried to guess for hours (which I don’t understand I use a series of password for everything and none of them work so i must have been in a strange mood I guess that day lol) anyways what I am hoping and asking is simple for an experienced user on this forum, I have only been on it recently in the hopes of being able to access my headunit again without having to send it back to fricken pioneer and wait 4-6 weeks for it to come back. Anyways that’s it long story short, I’m going to continue searching and piecing together the data I can but I would TRUELY appreciate someone taking a couple mins to link the files needed , or even just write the steps and tell me what files to look for , Thank you again in advance look foward to speaking with you
  3. New Android Auto Wallpaper issues

    Is it just me and my deck or is the new AA wallpaper terrible? It looks all blotchy and not smooth at all. It must be the 4200's display. Is anyone else having this issue? Is there a fix in the settings???
  4. I have loaded up my hard drive with music, movies, and audio books. Aside from the horrible way that it reads and lists files and folders, it works ok. Meaning i can scroll through them, hit the button for audio/video and it "works" Problem is that I get no video on the head end unit. (Yes I have Bypassed it and DVD's work perfect while driving) Funny thing is when playing a movie (AVI format) the sound works great and it plays on the rear screens both on the Mirror and USB1 or USB2 setting for the rear. It does not play video on the head end......... Any suggestions? All i get is the background on the main screen. It also does the same thing when the back screens are off by the way, sound only no video on the screen. Made for a great trip for the kids, sucked for me and my wife....... thanks
  5. AVH-4000NEX CAR PLAY VOLUME BUG

    Hey guys I've got a lil question I was driving the other day and it was a pretty bumpy road, when suddleny my volume started cutting out with each bump, it would go low then come back loud and so on. Eventually it just stayed like that and I could not adjust the volume, I would press the buttons and nothing would happen up or down... but some times lightly "slapping" the dash would get it to come back for a second... so I took it out to make sure all the connections were ok and they seemed fine. So the only thing I could think of was to do a reset of the settings. It worked and the volume controls work again, however I did not take the car for a drive and see if it would happen again, I am just concerned that there is a more serious internal issue. Anyone have the same experience or ideas on why it could be? Should I be concerened? I tried calling pioneer but unfortunately they're closed on the weekend Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!!
  6. Hi, I will get my 8200 this weekend and thought, it would be a good idea to have a backup of the internal SD card. Is this possible with the DEV MOD ? I thought, I saw some script here for the x200 series, but I am no more able to find it. Thanks in advance for your answer !!
  7. Hi, I have the 7200NEX and when you select MAPS it says iGO loading and then it closes. Everything else with the unit is working well. How can I fix this issue? Where is the SD card located? Are there any step by step instructions? Thank you for the help! - Matthew
  8. Backups and Images

    I wanted to start a thread of backup files for our stock units and any modified images. If this forum has helped you at all, contribute with your backups as a big thank you! State full Make/Model of your NEX unit, which firmware version installed at the time of backup, and which files are being uploaded. Here's my submission: Pioneer AVIC 6100NEX, firmware version 1.5 NOR Flash and BSP backup: http://bit.ly/2cLq29d Internal SD card backup: http://bit.ly/2k5Y6fz *Update* Working on getting a new set of files up, these might be corrupt. Standby... *Update 2* New files uploaded, enjoy!
  9. AVIC NEX 5000 Restore?

    So I just bought the NEX 5000 pioneer from a trusted local pawn and I was crazy excited to put it in but it seems to have a password lock. Pioneer is not open yet here in my time zone but it seems to be an 80 dollar fix? I'm going to see if they can tell me if its stolen but the pawn shop lady told me I could return if it can't be fixed. Anyway to get it into like a system restore mode? I've heard test mode works as well but only ones I see are for other models. Any help would be appreciated!
  10. AVN 4100NEX Microphone Issues

    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.
  11. I know this has been asked, but I have yet to find a clear answer. On the NEX series, there are two screens, the 'splash screen' for 1-2 seconds followed by a 'loading screen' for 3-5 seconds. Pioneer touts the ability to change the splash screen...but who cares when it's barely visible and immediately changes to their own loading screen. I previously owned an F90BT and was able to actually replace that loading screen, which was considered the splash screen. Anyway, has any figured out a way to actually replace both the splash screen and loading screen with an image? It was easy on the F90 as you could get into the windows environment. Hopefully I'm not missing something obvious. Thanks in advance for the replies!
  12. 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
  13. NEX Series rear AUX input

    I know that the 3.5mm jack in the rear is really an AV minijack; however, has anyone here ever used a standard audio mini-jack in the rear and use the AUX source as an audio-only AUX-in? The part that Pioneer recommends in the owner's manual for the AVIC NEX units (CD-RM10) doesn't even seem to be even sold by Pioneer anymore.
  14. HDMI w/Chromecast

    I currently have the 8100NEX. I wanted to know if anyone has tried to streaming Chromecast via the HDMI port and using one of the USB ports?
  15. Missing features from the NEX

    Hello Everybody, Two weeks ago I bought the European equivalent of the NEX-6000, the AVIC-F960DAB. The HU is really good, sound quality is great and love all the features it has in theory. In practice not all of the features are implemented as good as it should have been. I've written to Pioneer about these issues and thought I should share the experience with you guys. Maybe if more of us open a complaint on Pioneer Support we can get these things sorted out. This is what I have written them: Hi, I bought the Pioneer AVIC-F960DAB a couple of days ago, and installed it in my VW Crafter People Carrier Van (This is the same car as the Mercedes Sprinter). The unit is linked to a monitor in the passenger area via the AV out port. The problems that I am having are as follows: 1.) There is no remote control app for Android/iPhone that my passengers could use to remotely control the HU. This is a major disadvantage as the passengers in the back should be able to play/pause, adjust the volume, change the movie they are watching on the monitor without distracting me from driving. 2.) The HU does not show the subtitles for DivX movies. I've tried different file types (srt, sub, txt) and also mkv file with integrated subtitles. Nothing works. This is another major disadvantage for the passengers. My previous HU, an 8 years old JVC KW-AVX800, had no such problems. 3.) Trying to somehow bypass the limitations raised by problem 1.) and 2.) I linked up a Chromecast (HDMI dongle) to the HDMI IN port on the HU. With this I can stream movies with subtitles from a mobile phone to the HU wirelessly, thus fixing the no remote and subtitle problems, but another problem arises: - The HDMI IN video isn't mirrored on the passenger monitor linked to the AV Out port. I've tried different configurations and formats for the video settings, nothing helps. 4.) Make an option in the HU settings to dim the illumination after a specific time, or link it to the GPS skin changing time. Since in a lot of EU countries it is mandatory to drive with the lights on even during the day I can't really use the dim function linked to the lights switch. Manually dimming every evening isn't really high end solution... 5.) AVICSync app for mobile is now almost a year past it's release deadline. Please release at lease a limited/BETA version of it. 6.) The Folder sort order in File view mode is random. Alphabetical sorting of the folders would be much better. Paying 800 Euros for a high-end unit from a high-end brand hopefully entitles me to a high end customer support as well. All these problems could be fixed via a firmware update. Pioneer, please address these issues!! Best regards, Daniel
  16. Hi Folks, Not sure if anyone else has had some goofiness and hopefully Apple and Pioneer will make nice and work closer together to resolve things. But here is my experience, strength and hope so far... First off I really like the CarPlay features and I think it has made me a much safer driver. I really like how the 15 second advance/rewind works for the Podcast app since that is what I am often listening to while driving. Much safer with the big buttons to skip commercials. I am pretty handy and the install of the unit was easy. Total cost was just at $500 US with Amazon. Compared to the crap I bought a few years ago for near the same price I am a happy camper. Overall it works well about 90% but Siri has trouble as others describe. Still much better than using the iPhone without hands free. I live rurally and in the mountains and splurged to add a cell phone signal booster for about the same price as the 4000NEX. But that was the best money spent and Siri was much happier with good LTE signals. Got an increase of 50% of signal strength overall. Since the phone would freeze on rare occasions. I contacted Pioneer to see if there is a firmware update due out soon and got a not anytime soon response. Hopefully the next iOS update will incorporate a setting for CarPlay as currently rumored that may make it all work well. I really think the hangups are iOS related. Also I found it helps to unplug if you turn the radio or it will increase the glitches. The 4000NEX is kinda on the lower end but really only lacks the navigation which is unnecessary if you like Apple Maps. I don't mind the lower end screen since comparison reviews for the higher end screen did not make much of a difference. Again I mostly use CarPlay so nice screens would be wasted at any rate. I did just have one major issue and is the main reason I posted here so to alert others. I almost had to send my iPhone back for concern of hardware issue when it got stuck thinking there was a headphone being used. I was chatting with AppleCare and after powering off and even "Reset of All Settings" it stayed stuck. The next plan was to reset back to factory settings which is a pain. Then last ditch would have been to ship it off for hardware repair. I decided to go back and hook it back up to CarPlay. It worked well and CarPlay and once done and disconnected all was well. Again my bet is that this is an iOS issue since it seems to vary with issues based on iOS upgrades. Overall worth every penny and glad I have it. Hope this helps all those on the fence.
  17. iPhone 6 Stopping Radio

    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?
  18. Do I really have to package up my system and ship it to pioneer? I called them today and they said it will cost roughly $100 plus shipping just to bypass this password! Not to mention it will take between 1-2 weeks to get my radio back. There has to be an alternative, local programming shops? Anyone else run into this problem?

  22. So I think I'm missing something here.. Searched the.... Outta the forum and well I'm trying to get my front camera working... I have a feeling it's in the settings em selves but......??? Rear cam is wired to reverse lights.. Works like a charm and can access anytime.. Front camera is wired like back.. Power to ignition and ground to ground. Video is plugged into extra video input... When I try to access it I get the attention viewing of front seat video blah blah.. But the display will not come through at all! What am I missing? Is this not the aux input or????? Drawing serious blanks here.. TIA! This is turing into one serious Saturday project.......
  23. I just had my 8000 NEX installed yesterday into my 2011 BMW 335d. When the car is off, selecting reverse turns the camera on exactly as has happened in all of the AVIC units that I installed into my 2010 Jetta TDI Cup Edition. Once the vehicle has started, it will engage the camera the first time I put it in reverse, but never again until I shut the whole car down and turn it on while in ACC mode. The voltage is just under 12v when the vehicle is off (and the camera activates as it should), but when the car is on, the voltage goes to 12.6v and the head unit seems to pretend that the trigger doesn't exist. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm thinking of soldering together a TI voltage regulator to add in to keep the voltage the same when the car is off and on, but will this solve my problem? Is there a simpler solution any of you fine folks have come up with?
  24. Swapping U310BT with NEX5000

    I currently have a U310BT in my car and just purchased the NEX5000. Will I be able to basically just swap the 310 for the NEX5000 during the install? Will the main power/harness plug on the 310 plug right into the NEX? Thanks!
  25. I haven't seen this posted in the two weeks or so that Firmware 1.06 / CarPlay has been out, so I thought that I'd share. On the two prior Pioneer head units that I've had, as well as the 8000NEX before the Firmware 1.06 update, you would hear a loud and distinct "BEEP BEEP" when the Escort Live app received an alert and the source on the Pioneer head unit was set to iPod/USB. You wouldn't hear the "BEEP BEEP" if the head unit was set to a different source like Sirius XM or Pandora; but that was okay because you could still receive an audible alert from the radar detector. You would also hear "Live Police Alert" over the speakers all of the time when local police were detected. (I assume via Bluetooth) After Firmware 1.06 update, everything is the same as long as your head unit's source is "iPod/USB" when the alert is received. But if the source is set to anything else, like Sirius XM or Pandora, the source automatically changes to iPod/USB when the radar detector alert comes in. Afterwards, you have to manually change the source back to wherever it was previously set. When the next alert is received, the source changes to iPod/USB again. Lather, rinse, repeat. I suspect that now that BT is disabled for CarPlay when the Lightning cable is connected, the only way for the alerts to be heard is through iPod/USB. But I certainly don't want these alerts to run roughshod over whatever source I am listening to at the time. I'd like to think that this would get fixed eventually, but am curious how that fix would take place. I can't see the application controlling the source, can it? How can the firmware know what message it's receiving over the USB? (Even if it thought the alert was a phone call, it would still revert back to the original source once the alert was complete, right?) CarPlay is nifty, but I use my radar detector a lot more than I will use CarPlay. If I have to disable CarPlay, I will.
