  1. G'Day! Brand new here and have to say this place is awesome...........very glad I found a resource for my many questions and hopefully fixes to several annoying issues with my Pioneer unit, AVIC Z140BH. Bought a used Nissan Frontier that came with this unit installed. Great sound, happy with the bluetooth for my iPhone talk and music. Beyond that it has some serious drawbacks.........I have been rooting around reading a lot of posts making as much sense as possible but frankly coming up kind of short. The start/boot up time is way long, then you get all the annoying warnings you must touch you way out of....... Really want to be able to shut off the screen without stopping the truck. It is insanely bright at night no matter how you adjust the screen settings. Also wondering if there is a way to calibrate the navigation timing?? Cross streets almost always cross on the screen after I have actually pased them on the road. Is that just the way it is, and you live with it is there an adjustment? When I load up an D card with music cannot find a decent way to navigate it..........ultimately I abandoned it and go with radio or bluetooh iphone. With no clear understanding of what I have been reading about how to employ the software hacks I am very much hoping someone can/could point me to some simple easy to understand and execute steps to remove the nag screen and parking brake warning via a software hack. I have no stomach for pulling this thing out of the dash for a hardware hack...... thanks in advance! 2013 maps and 5.1 firmware [thanks to a great post I found here!]
  2. I just finished updating my avid z140bh firmware to 4.6. The vga adapter (apple) is connected to both the vga cable and the lightning/usb cable. My iPhone 5 is connected via lightning connector to the vga adapter. When I try to view videos or use app radio apps like waze and carbrowser app the appradio screen on the z140bh is black but I can hear audio via car speakers. Bluetooth is working fine as well. The setting on the z10bh are as follows. App connection: iPhone, iPod connection settings: vga Can someone help me get video and appradio apps to display correctly?
  3. After running through the syncing process, I'm unable to play Pandaro nor the iPod using the bluetooth feature located on the Z140BH. I'am able to make a phone call so I know it's synced. When I click on the bluetooth icon on the Z140BH it shows playing but no sound. I try to connect under the connect feature and it says "Unable to Connect" I'm using iPhone 5 OS 7.0.4. Pioneer V4.6. I've contacted Pioneer and the rep stated "They have no known issues". *** Does anyone have any suggestions???? ***
  4. Just installed my new Z140

    Hey everyone! Just want to commend everyone's participation on this site. I got a new receiver yesterday, the AVIC-Z140BH, and had been worried about upgrading from my stock radio. I heard horror stories about upgrading in a late-model Dodge, especially the Challengers and the Nitro's... I think. Anyways, thanks to all the amazing and informative posts, I was able to install everything without a hitch. Wasn't easy, I'll say that, but I was also being a bit meticulous and extremely careful. Afterall, this Challenger's my baby. If anyone has any questions about this install, or problems I may have run into, don't hesitate to email me. Cheers!
  5. I just finished installing this in my Subaru. The radio works - I am able to tune different fm stations & figured out how to set the presets ok. The gps works - at least it displays our location when moving. Not much else works. . . In the Nav mode most of the touchscreen 'button's are not lit. Ditto with the settings screen. I can select poi's that are programmed in but I can't, for example, program in an address to go to. The traffic function seemed to work last night (my son gave me a hand installing it at his house & I drove home). It would not pair up with my Iphone either, though when plugged into the phone it was playing music from my playlist. That doesn't work now but it could be from me 'punching in' random touchscreen buttons trying to get something to work. Anyone have any ideas?
  6. Change Map Z140BH

  7. hey guys, i have had an Avic-Z2 for the last 5 years.... i admit, i had quite a few problems with it, but i just accepted it. i didn't like the super slow input for destinations, how it ghosted out certain letters when typing things, and the super slow ipod interface. on top of all that, the GPS stopped working a while ago. i bought a brand new antenna, hooked it up, reset the unit, and it still didn't work... the motorized face plate is now super, super slow. i have to use my finger just and push it to make it move. that being said, it's time for a new unit. i have read SO many terrible reviews of the z-140 that i don't know why i'm still considering it. but i love that line, and want to stay with it, but not if i'll just regret it what are the main differences between the x940 and the z-140?? all i notice is that the Z-series has the full screen touchpad, while the X-series has some dials and a slightly smaller viewable screen... are there any other differences? and i keep reading about how the iphone does NOT connect properly with these units and blah blah blah... what are your thoughts?
  8. hello all. I just recently purchased a z140bh. So far i love the unit other than the actual screen picture quality during video playback leaves me wishing i had my 5 year old flip out screen back. (or is there something im missing here too) main question i have is ive been reading that these have dual zone capabilities however i cant seem to find anything about how to use it or turn it on in the manual or online. does it have to be hooked up a specific way? my end goal is to make my headphone unit that sits in the rear of my center console be used as my rear seat audio output but i can figure the logistics of how to turn that on and put sound to it once i figure out how to turn the dual zone feature on on the head unit. (the headphone unit is stock in my 06 suburban and was allowed to power on when the factory radio turned on now the the factory radio has been removed i will have to power it and then send a new feed to the unit as well.) second question i have an android phone that allows me to stream netflix through a netflix app to my phone, is there a way to link that app to the radio as well. im assumeing no but figured id ask. so any help on this dual zone option would be greatly appreciated! also any cool cracks available for this unit? thanks!
  9. dual screens?

    http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/air-display/id368158927?mt=8 I was dreaming of having total ipad integration with my avic z140bt as a dual screen type thing. What if the avic ran navigation while the ipad did facebook/ ipod stuff and you had 2 screens going. Or having it as a real 2nd monitor and having the navigation and app radio mode apps pan over onto the ipad screen? just an idea also, here's a really cool way to mount an ipad into a tahoe dash. Just sayin'
  10. Getting a new Z140BH I guess

    My wife went out to the car to go to work this morning and came back in to report that my car truck door was open and my Z110BT was missing!! Looks as if I'm getting a new unit.
  11. Z140BH Installation Checklist

    Hello, I just got my new Z140BH and scheduled to be installed later this week, on my 2006 ML350, along with JBL MS-8. I would like to check with you ALL, to get prepared with the:- 1. Checklist of most common/popular Hacks/Mods for Z140BH 2. Checklist for testing the installation (especially the Installer is couple of hours away from my home!!!) 3. Can anyone recommend the good Installer in North Jersey, from your experience? I would highly appreciate your input and sharing your expertise. Thank you all in advance. Thanks, D
  12. I have an AVIC-Z140bh nav/dvd system in my car. I bought it because it said it was Android compatable. I have already had a little bit of difficulty transfering my contacts to the unit. But I finally figured that out. The thing plays Pandora through bluetooth easily, which was nice. Dvds and radio works great too. Again, had some difficulty finding the correct format to play ripped music videos on the SD card, but I even overcame that. So now my current problem is finding out how to connect my Droid Razr Maxx to it so I can play AppRadio, DashCommand, Netflix, YouTube, Waze...... Several other models of nav systems Ive seen, have an HDMI port in the back. But the Z140 does not. And according to Pioneers compatability list, the Razr Maxx connects via HDMI. The only thing I can think of is get an HDMI to AV cable converter and hook it up that way. But have no idea if that would work. And that requires me to take it back to the place i had it installed and have them do it because I would rather not. I saw somewhere online that a CD-AH200c Android Connection Kit would do it. But It does not say which model device it is ment for. I am just wondering if anyone here has managed to connect their Android phone to the AVIC-Z140bh?
  13. Ok first off im still in Afghanistan for about 4 more days but i have an AVIC Z140BH waiting on me. Heres my questions and concerns so when I get home i can do this in a jiffy and move on to other taskings lo. 1) When wiring the harness where do i wire the reverse signal wire and is it pink? This question falls into my next question. Im trying to wire reverse camera up in a 2004 ford f150 and i want to have a switch where i can flip the switch down and back up camera comes on in reverse. And flipp the switch up and it comes on when driving. Can you explain to me what needs to be done to do the switch concept. and the concept of just wiring it to reverse lights please. 2) Next i have seen the youtube videos and read teh forums but i want some confirmation. To enable video in motion bypass ( Yes i know illegal) alls i have to do is move mute pin up no grounding the parking brake wire or anything? If anyone would like to email me these answer please do.
