I need to find the original firmware for this model. I screwed up and installed a firmware update for a AVIC-5200 and now maps will not load and I get a message that positioning is not available because of hardware.

 

Thanks for any help you can give.

Yeah that's what I thought but navigation will not load, the radio has disappeared and been replaced with HD radio. It would be great if you could get a backup for me.

that dont sound right cause 5000 series dont have HD. Are you sure you did update the firmware from 6000 series??

If you used V1.04 on a 5201 you bricked the unit and damaged it.

One very important thing to know, the firmware/hardware on 5201 is not the same as a 5200. When Pioneer came out with the 5201nex they have new firmware that is not the same as a 5200nex 

If you look up a 5201 on Pioneer's site you'll notice there is no firmware update for that model yet.

If you took v1.04 and updated a 5200 you have damaged the unit. 

I work in distribution for Pioneer and unfortunately have had a few people call us telling us they have done the same thing. If you do this the unit is not covered under Pioneer's warranty. I've been told by a few that have done this, the radio tuner disappears as a source and a few other small navigation errors.
