Weak radio signal compared to the VW autoradio
Posted 20 September 2011 - 01:50 PM
I want to know if anyone have met the same problem... When installing the AppRadio, I have a weak radio signal compared to the one I had on the previous autoradio (the one from VW).
Thanks for your feedback, it will help me understand if I did something wrong in the installation.

Do you have an idea of what kind of stuff I need to add to make it work ? (brand, name)

The motorola male connector goes into the appradio and the other end plugs into your car's antenna wiring, this will probably replace the antenna adapter I suspect you had to install with the radio. The power lead coming off of it needs to be attached to a +12v power source that is swtiched with the key, this should be the red wire coming out of the radio. That can easily be connected with a wire "t" tap. This should be very easy to install if you have even basic electronics knowledge.
If you had your radio professionally installed, I would go back and shame them into installing this for you free of charge since this is something any radio installer should be aware of.

I emailed pioneer and this is what they had to say.
We do not have any reported issues with the reception on the App Radio, if
possible try connecting a different antenna, alternatively
Please take your unit with a valid bill of sale from a Canadian authorized
dealer to any service center below for evaluation.
Could the gps antenna interfere with the fm antenna?

I'm have the same problems with weak signal since I switch from my stock radio. I have a 2000 Audi A4 and it used to have the Symphony 2 Radio in it, which worked perfectly and picked up reception that other cars wouldn't. Now I get some stations and really poor reception. I have the Metra connector (Stock No. 40-EU55) that PJH was refering to in this post. I got it professionally installed but took it out to bypass it and I'm pretty sure the blue wire on the Metra wasn't connected anywhere. Would this cause the problem? If so where do I connect it? TIA!
The blue wire needs to be connected to power.
