    I have an inno xm radio with car cradle antenna etc. connected currently in my husbands car. I bought a new one for my son. When I hooked his up in another car it did not work so I took his radio and placed it in the same car as the working one and it does not work. The only thing I changed was the radio. I had the frequency the same and also tried additional other frequencies just in case. Is there something else I can try?

    Same problem. Can't even find the XM > Settings > FM MODULATOR option in my Pioneer Inno any more. Problem started about beginning of December.

When its in the car dock, the Inno sends an FM signal to the car radio. It does not receive a signal from the car radio. You must have the external antenna correctly installed outside the vehicle for the Inno to work. The built in antenna is disabled when the device is placed in the car dock. Make sure to test it outside, since garages or car ports will block the signal.

Does pioneer have a car cradle for the inno2 that secures it better i have gone through so many of them and now my warranty is up. i operate heavy equipment and it causes my inno to fly out of the cradle,...


I feel your pain. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any car docks, there all discontinued. (sorry bums!)
But, when I'm riding my motorcycle, I put a rubber band around the radio and dock, holding it in place.
But, in a place that doesn't interfere with any buttons or the display.

Pioneer Inno - Powers on, great signal - but audio or pad data!


I'm assuming the power button it not in 'hold' position, and you have the volume turned up, and/or on the correct frequency with the adjoining radio?

Pioneer Inno Gex-INNO2BK stuck in re-boot cycle


I fixed the reboot cycleing problem by plugging the travel charger into the jack that also fits the home and car cradle. I had the Inno set to auto start when it was powered on in the car cradle. The travel plug must have over-ridden the auto-start setting and allowed it to finish the complete bootup. I then reset the Inno default settings and every thing was back to normal. I do not know what was the original cause of the rebooting cycle problem

Mine didn't work out of the box either -- but i discovered if i warmed the remote up ---it works fine. I put it in front of a heater vent till it gets warm then it works great --- as long as it doesn't cool off.

Make sure it is docked in the docking cradle for the car. The option will not come up if the unit is not in the docking cradle.
