biskit Posted April 22 Report Share Posted April 22 I recently began having issues with my unit connecting to CarPlay. The unit would prompt, "To use Smartphone Connectivity..., pairing is required, etc". If I paired the unit, CarPlay would work until I powered off the unit. I thought this was an Apple Problem, but I realized this thing was NOT saving any of my bluetooth devices at all. Every time I powered it off, it requests to re-pair again. I went ahead and did a factory reset on the device, and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I've pulled all power, still stuck. I cracked the unit open and there is NO SD card for me to attempt a resurrection on this unit. Purchased in July 2021. Died in April 2023. The unit has never quite lived up to what I was hoping for. The UI would be unresponsive a good 50% of the time. Maybe I had a dud and the filesystem was throwing errors that caused all this. No idea, just guessing. Either way, this is my second Pioneer head-unit and both had lack luster UI response. I purchased this Pioneer thinking it would have been a big improvement from my 4100NEX. Swapping units was going to be easy because they used the same power connections, etc. I really liked that. Not sure if I want to stay in the Pioneer family anymore.
