"CarPlay support is NOT included within this firmware update."
I didn't see US version yet.

I'm not going to flash my unit with the EU firmware but I did download the Naviextras app to see what it does, it seems to want to connect directly to the head unit or a flash drive, but it doesn't recognize my drive.. not sure how this is going to work with our NEX units.. guess we'll find out.. hopefully soon. I wonder if the naviextras will get us the weather/gas prices...

Just installed the update on my AVIC-F60DAB aka NEX8000 unit. No problems but also no obvious new features.
The whole update process took about 10 minutes. Afterwards the navigation settings were reset to factory settings.

Upgrading the firmware was indeed a breeze. However, actually connecting it to the naviextra toolbox not so much. Tried SD cards, formatted SD cards, exporting theme settings on the card first, wanted to try directly connecting laptop to the device but offcourse you'd need a male-male usb cable. Then i thought i'd better take the RTFM route. No luck, can't seem to find a single support page or subject in the manual pertaining to actually connecting it to naviextra toolbox. Tried the manual, pioneer site, naviextra site, naviextra toolbox help. Nothing. Awww i just want to add some manual POIs, shouldnt be that difficult these days.....
Just wanted to add, EU model here also, i would not try out the update on US/AU models.

Ah found it.
1. Need to use a clean formatted USB stick
2. Stick it in USB1 port of the unit
3. Start navigation and select settings there (so NOT the homescreen settings menu)
4. Scroll right and click "synctool"
5. Installand start naviextra toolbox
6. Put the USB stick in the PC
@Tekki, u can buy, if available, new maps and updates amongst others. I think u can also add POIs now but haven't checked yet, gotta go eat first~!

Let me guess, there's only a PC version of the Naviextras Toolbox and no Mac version?!

Mine gets stuck on "Reading". Left it for a good 20 minutes. USB stick formatted as fat32 on Windows, folder added as top level, nothing else on stick (the Pioneer one that came with the unit no less!)
Will try later with an SD card if no one has any ideas...

For those of you with the European models that upgraded to the new firmware, does it enable the connected services like gas and weather? It just the naviextras?
