Question about Pioneer AVIC-N2 Car DVD Player

Navigation stopped working properly after xm installation

I own a factory installed AVIC-N2 navigation system for my car. Less than a month ago I had Bestbuy install the GEX-P920XM XM satellite tuner. The XM works really well and I'm very happy with it, but ever since then my navigation system hasn't been working properly. When I set a route, the navigation system changes it every couple of seconds and never stays on one route. Also, the estimated time of arrival box just shows ##### instead of what time the destination will be reached. Sorry that I can't describe the problem well, but this has never happened to me before. I even reset it and the problem still exists. Does it sound like Bestbuy messed up something in hardware (such as a plug) or could it be something as simple as a setting? Thanks in advance for the help, ST

Re: navigation stopped working properly after xm...

It seems to me that they have installed something incorrectly and that it is interfering with your nav,ring the company to see if they are compatible to work together. if they are then they need to check they have installed it correctly. hope this helps

Check the connections at your brain, you probably pull it loose when you removed the N1. Goodluck.

Trying to add more audio equipment to my Pioneer Nav stereo

The Avic N2 is only XM ready not Sirius ready like the N3, which is SAT ready(both XM and Sirius). If you must have your Sirius the only option left for you is use the rear input on the hide away unit but you won't have it on the touchscreen. There is one more expensive option by have your N2 hardware upgrade to N3, some Ebayer have that service offer for about $275. It's done by replace a surface mounted chip with 70 plus leads. That would take some expert de-solder and solder skill with a solder torch or
a tech's heat gun. I can do it but I don't know which chip it is. I have an immaculate N3 for sale on Ebay. Maybe you could sell your N2 and buy an N3. I usually get about $550-$650 for an N2 depend on the condition. Hope that I did some help. You can call me at 801-414-4566, I would do anything I can. Goodluck.

You will need a gps antenna, 30 pins data cable and an antenna extension to do basic installation set. For more precise set up you will also need reverse and speed signal sensor wires(pink and purple).

Pioneer avic n1 video by pass but now doesnt work when i upgraded w n3 disc

I am pretty sure that pioneer does this so you cant bypass it. The n1, you just have to ground the parking brake wire,the n2 you have to solder the 2 points together under the piece of tape, the n3 you have to move over the switch on the side of the unit. Which all of these void your warranty anyway but I think that is why people eventually downgrade the the old dvds.
