DMH-WT8600NEX bypass HELP!!

Recommended Posts

Recently installed the beautiful DMH-WT8600NEX (the 10.1 display) 

I can not for the life of me figure out how to bypass. There is an accelerometer or gyroscope of some sort that will not allow video in motion. Does not have to do with the parking brake wire, or the VSS wire. Possibly the GPS antenna, which I can’t just unplug because I will loose wireless carplay. Anyone has any success with a bypass on these newer units yet?

I don’t think we’ve figured it out yet. You got an Apple TV hooked up to your 8600? Nice! 

Super cool, converted it to 12v and boom! Auto connects to hotspot

Hi. After many hours of screen presses, I figured it out. The Pioneer DMH-W and DMH-WT models have a special hidden menu bypass requirement. No interface bypass is required, but you can leave it connected if it is already installed. Dean and Fernando at Five Star Audio made a video of it on the tubes if you’d rather see it than read it. Here is how to do it: 
1. Update the firmware to 1.13 
2. Enable the hidden menu bypass by sourcing the radio off (source off, not power off). 
3. Press and hold the bottom left corner of the screen for exactly 10 seconds (use a stopwatch as timing is critical). 
4. Within 1 second, press and hold the bottom right corner (to the immediate left of bluetooth icon) for 10-12 seconds until a small “set on” icon will appear (in the bottom middle of the screen) confirming the bypass has been activated. 
5. If you do not get it the first time, cycle the ignition off and back on and start over. 
6. If you need to reverse this process, reset the radio.

Thankyou!!! You are a life saver! Will try here shortly! Can I ask, what did you find is the easiest way to update? Having a hard time using that Car Assist app on my phone. Paired and all, but can’t seem to transfer the update

It worked! Only a small drive, but headed on a long drive tomorrow. Got it updated (use the settings, not the actual carassist app on head unit) Took me just 2 tries to get “set on” but appears all is well! Thankyou thankyou thankyou!!!

How are people watching video on this, the browser/ YouTube or using the HDMI with a source plugged in like the OP?
