Question about Pioneer AVIC-D1 In-Dash Mobile Navigation CD Car Video Player

Pioneer in-dash navigation system AVIC-D1

The touch panel with the system referenced above is out of calibration. That is you actually have to touch the screen to the right of the button you want to activate. Therefore the buttons on the far right of any screen are not accessible. What can I do to recalibrate the touch panel without removing the unit and sending it back to Pioneer which is what they recommend I do?

    I have a similar problem and when I tried the solution given by bun6661, I can get to the calibration screen but I cannot select the "done" or "enter" on the joystick to accept and continue. Any suggestions please?

    Loaded upgraded discs 2007 Teleatlas from a friends system but gave discs back a while ago and can't seem to get the older version of mine to be recognized. Any way to erase the memory to reload the old version?

    I have exactly the same problem after 1 year. Pioneer wants $200 to fix it with a 90 day guarantee. Totally unsat!

    Hi,

    I have the same problem with the screen calibration.

    I want to file a class sue action against Pioneer for seling a LEMON and not willing to admit and fix it. In cars they call it recall but for Pioneer everything is perfect and they "don't know" of any problem with the AVIC-D1, they also want $200 to fix their problem.

    If you want to be added to the class action please let me know.

    My email is: gateway69@ymail.com

    Had the same exact issue with my AVIC D-2. I was surprized the procedure to get the the correct menu are the same. The fix worked perfect. Since it's kind of a guess on how much to short the screen it took me a few tries to get it spot on.



    thank you so much.

    the keys are out of sync to the left

  • bcoryjames Sep 28, 2008

    I have the same problem. We actually sent ours back and paid the $200 to have it corrected, within 3-5 months it was back to the same problem.

    Its so bad now that I can't even use the nav at all, completely useless. I have a D1. I wanted to just buy a replacement touchscreen and install it myself, but I don't know what to get.



  • brandi11_22 Oct 23, 2008

    I have the same problem but I can't get to the point when the screen will say "press reset." I pressed the eject button and the reset button but it just goes to the generic green background screen. Is there something im missing?

Hi, You set the screen so its all the way down and hold down the dvd eject then the reset button for a few seconds, then let off of the reset button, keep the eject button held down for another few seconds. Then the screen will say press reset. instead using the joystick, press up,up,down,down then push it in at the center. It will come up with options. the first one is touch screen test. using the joystick click on that one and do the calibration test. You will then have to trace the outline of the screen, while you are on the right side of it, trace it short to make up for the buttons on the right side. when you finish push the joystick in. it will say "settings ok" then go down to the 4th one, i think, and it will say something like test calibration settings and go to that one. It should say that the settings were saved. After that shut the key off and turn it back on and it should be good to go.

One additional tip. If your map comes up in New Jersey and your location is Cleveland, check your antennae connection. Signals for your location and route are received from your antennae. Especially check your connection if you have done any work behind the dash.

This one worked perfect on my AVIC-D1!!! The menu names were a little off, but fiddling around made it perfect, all for less than the $200.

Who is Pioneer to think that the user is not capable of doing this simple of a test on our own?????

improper connection of the Parking
Brake lead.

How do i recalibrate without getting the parking brake warning.

Some buttons don't work


Pioneer AVIC-D1 Touch Screen Recalibration

If your pioneer AVIC car navigation unit does not register your touches or the wrong button is “pressed”, you need to re-calibrate your screen’s digitizer.

1-Hold the Eject button down until the face of the unit drops all the way
2-Using a pen hold down the reset button (just above the joystick) and the navigation disc eject simultaneously.
3-Release the reset button.
4-Release the dvd eject button next. The display will read “press reset”
5-Push the joystick up two times.
6-Push the joystick down twice.
7-Press the joystick in.
8-The service menu will appear after a short pause. You can navigate the service menu using the joystick.
9-Chose the first menu option and press in on the joystick.
10-Trace the screen with a stylus.
11-"P.ADJ" is the back button
12-Chose the second menu item in order to calibrate the touch screen. Use a stylus again and tap the "+" sign on the screen. (You may have to touch slightly off center if the digitizer is damaged. In which case things will still be off but it will be much better.)
