In Topic: X930bt update fail

Today, 05:35 PM

after the euro maps upgrade does not start stuck on " insert an SD card ".when insert sd card write "sd incorrect " what is wrong

Sounds like your update failed and left your unit in an unstable condition. It wants to continue the update, but there is apparently something wrong with the files you are using. I can't help with that, but it is possible to abort the update so you can use the unit.
You need to get into TestMode. If you don't have it, download SuperTestModeKey.Zip and unzip it.


Put the testmode.key file on a SD, put that in the head unit and it should boot to testmode. go into file maintenance, and remove the file:
This will kick the unit out of upgrade mode, and should restart into regular mode on next power up (remember to remove the TestMode SD).
Warning: neven neven never ever install Condi's Hackmode. If you do - you're on your own.

Hi. I buy this radio from ebay .when i turn on .in settings only two icons active . Av settings and av sound . Whats wrong ?

Did you install the parking brake detection? If the head-unit doesn't detect the parking brake is set, some of the settings menus and NAV functions are disabled.
You might want to research the parking brake bypass hack. Try grounding the parking brake wire. That might work temporarily.
If you need one, get the installation manual from Pioneer's web site.

dude, I feel your pain. here is my story. I have 2 vehicles..... Cadillac CTS, z140BT, 30 gig ipod video and with this setup....the ipod will restart where I left off. my 2nd vehicle is a mazda B3000, NEX-4200, 30 gb ipod video and no matter what combination of cables, it will not restart where I left off. Very frustrating. I am not a country fan, but I like Aaron Lewis. I am so sick of the first song on his new CD........Sinner. I am about to remove that CD from my ipod.

Have you tried switching  the ipods between vehicles to see if the issue followed the ipod?

Ron, do I need any updates before going straight to 6.0?  I saw that Pioneer has a unit update to 4.6, right now I am at 4.0.  I am just wanting to make sure I dont have to update in a step process.

You can go directly to 6.0. However, if you use an iPhone with Lightning cable, install 4.6 first. It adds this support and AFAIK can't be added after installing 6.0. Pioneer really messed-up this Lightning support rollout.


Also, you should go to the Navigation.com web page (I linked above) and download the instructions and manual. There's some useful info there about the changes.

Can anyone please inform me with the correct steps to get my x940bt, version 4.00 to the newest latest and greatest maps/bt/updates??  Thanks

2015 (v6.0) is the latest and greatest. If you're willing to put forth some effort, you can get it at no cost by reading the thread 2015-avic-z120-map-update/  Hint - see post #84 to bypass the old info.
