Hello. I am new to your forums. I recently purchased a new head unit for my truck. Reason being, the AVIC-D3's Bluetooth wont work with new Smartphones, or at least all the ones I tried, Hands free phone in my truck is a must as it is my work vehicle. It seems if I can even get a new smartphone to connect, the unit will disconnect as soon as a call is made or receive a call. Am I doing something wrong, or is this so?
With that said, I gave the AVIC-D3 to my son and he has installed it in his '99 F150. He had to buck up the inside of the dash to get it to fit, but he did a nice job and it fits perfectly. Looks factory. He is wanting to purchase the GEX-P920XM XM Digital Satellite Radio Tuner so he can have sat radio. Problem is, he has read that XM is no longer in existence and has been absorbed by Sirius. Is that the proper modual for the AVIC-D3 and will it still work?
