In Topic: Heat issues - 8100

07 July 2017 - 03:14 AM

The same exact thing happens on my 4100 NEX when using Android Auto. Phone (Moto Z) gets really hot, voice recognition goes to crap and AA glitches and lags. Im pretty sure the issue is the phone thermally throttling though, not the NEX, because the rest of the sources (iPod, HD Radio, etc) function perfectly fine and the phone still misbehaves after disconnecting from the radio. I think the combination of the battery charging, GPS, and ambient temperature in the summer cause the phone to overheat and lag. Best bet is to keep the phone out of the sun and/or in front of a vent with the A/C on.

You could always install a switch on the ACC power wire.

Are you plugged into USB1? The device won't recognize the update on USB2 or the SD card.

damn thats sweet, im stuck with a avh 4100 though :(
hopefully someone can fix that in near future

x100 (AVH-X8700BT) has no love in this forum... :(
Was so excited until I read X8700BT is not part of the x000 series.

There is a solution for x100 devices on the AVIC Hacking slack. It's​ somewhat less sophisticated than this but it gets the job done.

Android Auto currently appears to only support streaming music apps like Spotify, Pandora, Google Play Music, etc..
If you want to listen to music over USB I would suggest loading your music onto a USB thumb drive or an iPod where you can make playlists and better sort through your collection.
I don't think the pioneer units were designed to read music from your phone directly. There is Bluetooth streaming for that.
My current setup is AA with an iPod and it works perfectly.
