I have just installed an 8000NEX. I like it except that it will not plot a route in maps.  I get a straight line from where my vehicle is to my final destination. As I drive, the distance shown diminishes and direction (NESW) is shown. But there is no street-by-street route. And there is no turn-by-turn announced. I updated the firmware today and I still have this problem. I've looked at every setting I can possibly think of, but nothing seems to help the situation. Has anyone run into this problem AND have a solution?

From Pioneer. It was a remanufactured item and came sealed in a Pioneer box with original Pioneer cables and manuals.

Looks like you got a remanufactured dud.

 

Contact Pioneer customer service...

The only setting I can think of that would be causing this is the "off road" setting. If that is set correctly to not use off road, then contacting Pioneer is what you will need to do.

:-P Off Road setting was it! I turned it off and everything started working properly. I feel stupid. But it works and turn by turn is good. (Now if they had a male voice that read street names, I'd be happy. The female voice sort of creeps me out. :shock: )

On my unit a 4000NEX with the add on GPS I had a choice of three each male and female. For S&G's you can plug in UK, French, Spanish Ect. Kinda fun. It's in the setup area..
