I'm on my 3rd Avic unit over the years, starting from the N1 all the way up to the z130.
I've been lucky enough to keep swapping head units without the need to change the wiring harness (I did a very nice soldering job lol).
I'm looking at getting the 8200nex now, and was just wondering if I will be able to do the same thing, basically just plug and play.
Realistically, I don't mind installing a new harness, but the last couple units I've crossed into the USA (I live in Canada) to purchase, and it's nice to drop it in the dash before coming back through customs
I have a z130 that I updated thanks to this site to the 2015 z140 maps if I remember correctly.
I'm just wondering though, are there any other updates available? Are 2016 maps available, even as a purchase? I looked on ebay and couldn't really find anything newer than 2015 so I thought Id post here in case I'm losing my mind
Quick question for the pros out there coming from the avic-z series.
I've had a few avics over the years, and the last couple ones used the same wiring harness. That allowed me to install my z130 without having to resolder the wires.
I don't mind doing that, but to be honest I sometimes drive down south of the border (I'm canadian) and do a swap before coming back over the border to help with customs
Just wondering if I need to take my soldering stuff with me, or if the new nex8100 will use the same wiring harness as my z130?
