    I'm unable to obtain a product key for MSN Direct. I followed the directions per the manual, I even reset the unit and nothing...

    My unit just sits at Connecting to MSN Direct and nothing happens.

    I drove all around hoping that it will connect but it never does. I event sent the unit back for service. Pioneer sent it back stating that they found nothing wrong with the unit. This is complete and utter bullsh**. I know 3 people who have the same unit and only 1 out 3 works, that is not a good ratio. I'm about to call Pioneer again.

Try getting the new 2.0 firmware on and put it on a SD card, install the new firmware and then install AVIC feeder on ur computer and change the settings to your likeness and save it on ur SD card. your AVIC will ask you to update aka yes or no and click yes, after the first time it will restart and load again with the same ?, click no and go to MSN direct status. keep in mind that the upgrade must take place in the cradle in a msn direct zone.

Traffic reciever codes

The MSN Direct traffic receiver is located in the cigar power plug of the power cord. When you purchased the GPS and included (or separate) receiver, a special code similar to a CD-Unlock code xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx was printed on a piece of cardboard that the cord and plug passed through. If you discarded the paper - fear not. The MSN Direct receiver code or number is available to view on the GPS screen when you select Tools --> MSN Direct -->Status -->Subscription. There is also a phone number displayed to activate.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck!

When you connect a headset (after pairing you double-click the headset's icon and click the headset service) you will hear a beep on the headset itself. When you "answer" this by clicking the appropriate button then the connection is finally established - only then the sound is routed through Bluetooth.

It seems you are doing this already. But the problem is that this only affects programs that start using sound after the connection is established, or programs that don't keep the sound channel open. I am not sure that MSN does it. You could exit MSN, connect the headset (confirm the sounds are coming through it by using Windows Media Player for example), then start MSN again and see if it makes a difference.

My gps system does not charge when install dash board mount

does it charge via an AC charger? As most GPS units do better on an initial AC charge prior to being hooked up to DC.
Your charge circuit is possibly faulty, or the internal battery has collapsed and needs changing

Dear Sir I installed a pioneer avic-f900bt as instructed in the manuals.When I m parked the unit works ok but as soon as i drive it starts switching off and on again.I did install the handbrake wire too.

I believe this is a safety problem to prevent distractions to the driver since this unit is installed in eye sight of the driver. Parked position is fine because the parking brake is on signifying you are stopped. Once moving it should turn off multimedia functionality. Try grounding your parking brake cable to think it is always on :)
