CVA-1004 head unit set-up

I am moving my CVA-1004 head unit, NVE-N851A nav, CHA-S634 CD changer into my new(est) car. I bought a Pac 7 trigger for video bypass service. After installation, I am unable to access the 'set-up' screen. The disclaimer screen does not clear with pushing 'enter' on remote. I removed the Pac7 bypass and tried to connect the hand brake and foot brake leads on the heat unit and nav unit, but it is not clear in the manuals whether they are looking for 12VDC or ground. I have re-booted the head unit per manual, but no luck. Any advise out there? Much Thanks BB

Alpine IVA-D310-navigation option?

The nav feature is purchased separatly with the deck, the previous owner did not purchase it because at the time alpine was charging an extra $1000 on top of the price of the deck to add nav. This is due to the fact that alpine decided to use there own reasearch and development team to design a nav system where as kenwood baught the rights to use garmin's technology and put there name on it which they only charge $400 on top of the price of head unit to add nav.

you have the amp remote wire hooked to the power antenna lead instead of the amp wire on the deck otherwise just hook it to a switched +12 volt source. You sure you got a DVD changer instead of just a cd changer

Ipod input?

I've got an Alpine CVA1004 and use my ipod on the aux input of the headunit. The alpine-ipod interface was too confusing for me, with the ipod connected to the aux input, I just control the music from the Ipod, I find it easier that way.

lol i had the exact problem that you are having with my alpine. The solution is taking the blue cord that was inside the vehicle (forgot what cord it was) and actually connecting it with the other blue cord thats different makes the factory amp read the cd player and ta-da it works. crazy isn't it
