I have a AVIC8500NEX and am planning on installing it in my 2001 Lincoln Navigator.

Hooking up this wire is a pain in the ass.

But, I'm curious, it sounds like Pioneer says the vss wire is a digital pulse signal, or an analog (+/- voltage).

The only reason I see for the vss is when you lose gps like under a bridge, in a city with tall buildings, heavily wooded are, etc. I'm assuming if your gps and the head gets a signal that you are moving forward, it can predict where you would be on the screen based on your previous direction and speed.

I found the connectors and wire from the transmission up into the cab in the engine compartment, but I wasn't sure if I should hook it up because I don't know what type of signal the head end is expecting. Guess I'll give Pioneer a call.
