I can't get into the map on my pioneer avic d3

The AVIC D3 is not pioneers best. The navigation side of the unit is wearing out. The slider slot in the dvd and other moving parts are wearing down fractionally and that is all it takes for the unit to no longer read the high density map data discs. The map disc is a dual layer 8.5gb disc and it is just about max out. (The disc must be in the unit for the navigation to work.) This is a lot of information and the unit must be able to read every bit of data on the disc or it will error out. All it takes is the fractional wear to mess up the tracking of the laser over the disc and cause problems reading the data on the disc. When the unit spins and spins, it is working hard to read something on the disc and will eventually error out if it can't. Also a fingerprint or tiny spot on the disc will prevent the unit from reading the disc. (Clean with a drop of water and soft cotton cloth even if it looks clean.) The data is information or instructions telling the unit what to do, and if it misses any information it will go crazy and error out. This is very different from music or video/movies that just play and if a spot is on the disc it will just be a fuzzy picture or static from that spot. If you have a disc your system likes, take care of it. I say likes because every disc has fractional differences in data location on the disc. (This is tolerance) That fractional difference could make or break the ability of your unit to read the map disc. So one possible fix is trying different disc to see if your unit will like one of them. Still eventually this also will die. These units are beyond their life cycle and the dvd drive is operating on borrowed time. I hope this helps.

Tracking issues with SONY XAV60

If you smoke or it is dusty in the car, cleaning the laser lens may help. At any rate, if you are careful, cleaning the lens won't harm anything.

Getting the map to track up instead of heading

Usually you can touch the red compass that points to north and it will change between heading up and north up. sounds like she has it set to north up.

Speed sensor

The VSS or speed sense wire is used for navigation systems. The VSS wire sends a series of pulses (from 800 to just over 1,000 per mile) only when the vehicle is in motion. If the VSS wire is not hooked up, the navigation system will not realize that the car is moving at all, and will be unable to track position. If you need a wire color and location I can provide one for your vehicle. Hope this helps.

puedes entrar a y bajar el manual de instalacion.
ahora,si no se ve el dvd es posible que no hayas conectado el cable Verde que esta el la ploga de 8 pins.necesitas conectarlo a tierra o mejor dicho,junto con el cable Negro.
Tambien hay un switch enfrente,hacia la izqierda en la esquina de abajo que dice V.SEL tambien necesitas presionar ese switch para cambiar el video.
espero que esta informacion te sirva y espero que me lo hagas saber.
gracias y suerte

yes, the solution is very simple and i dunnow why the manual doesnt mention it.

Try placing a jpg file of ur choice on the cd or dvd or usb flash memory, and choose it or just move the cursor on it, if u choose it(BY PRESSING ENTER) or as if u will play it, it becomes full screen, if u just place the cursor on it from the menu it will show as a small icon on the left of the soings menu of the MP3 file list.
Further more, if u place more than one file, and press enter on one, the PTID5800 will start a slide show! To pause one image, press pause(play) or zoom, u can even forward images and back them up using ffwd and reverse! it only accepts jpg, didnt accept GIF but sometimes it accepts BMP dunnow which ones, but to play it safe, stick to JPGs

HELP!!! My cd player just skips through all song never playing....

Sorry but this unit has a problem with the tracking servo. The problem could be an alighnment, or a bad componet such as the laser assembly, tracking motor or tracking driver IC, with all of these problems the unit will need to come out of the vehicle. Good Luck
