Most people remove an extra wire that they are not using (like the cell mute.) Insert that wire/pin into the "bypass" opening. Then ground the other end of that wire, and also ground the light green parking brake wire. Then you should be good to go

Ok, put the new wire into the "bypass" spot and ground it to the chassis. THen groud the green parking brake wire as well? THen is should play DVD's and control navi? Well, as soon as I get mine I will take a look and give it a shot. I will also post pics of the mod if it goes well.

Yep. You can ground them to an existing ground wire too

Has anyone performed this mod and found that it didn't work or lasted only a few days?

Has anyone performed this mod and found that it didn't work or lasted only a few days? WHat is that bypass spot called? Why is it that placing the wire into that slot enables the unit to play while driving?

I am uneasy about doing this mod. Can anyone verify that their units are still working after performing this mod?

My Bypass is working perfectly for around 2 weeks or so now. I wouldn't use the cell phone mute wire unless you aren't planning on installing the blue tooth device. The blue tooth is the best part about the N4.

The Pioneer bluetooth piece (CDBTB200) does NOT use the cell mute wire

It doesnt oh ok, cool....

I changed the backgrounds today. pretty cool...

I have a AVIC-N2 in my other car and was also wondering can you change the brain over to a N4 and get bluetooth and the cool Ipod screen that will play videos.

I have witnessed a AVIC N4 bypass that stopped working after 20 minutes of driving. Any ideas? I heard that the date of the software makes a difference.

No it is still in the spot. Will try another unit just to make sure and re-do the mod for the unit.

Then it was done wrong. The date has absolutely nothing to do with it

So should the wire be reinstalled in the "bypass spot" and then grounded along with the parking brake wire?

That would be correct. Gold Star.
