    Hi;

    The Pioneer firmware fixes aren't applicable. I found out from another source that Apple is to come out with a downloadable firmware fix. The newest ipod nano isn't completely compatible with some gear. I bought another 2 year old nano ipod locally off of Kijiji and the problem is solved, works great.



    Thanks and

    Best Regards

    Peter

Try using a universal dock attached to the AVIC N4 and the ipod jack right into the universal dock. Hopefully that should work..

Or try THIS from Apple.
The Composite AV Cable connects to your iPod, iPhone, or Universal Dock via the 30-pin dock connector and to your TV, home theater receiver, or stereo receiver via the composite video and red/white analog audio ports. The cable also features a USB connector that you can plug into a power source, such as a computer or the included USB Power Adapter. (according to the site)

As other expert are saying
Please contact the vendor or the manufacture for the defect,I think that your device is in warranty if so then the vendor can replace it or repair it

ERROR AO - the error is Electrical or Mechanical cause

I would recommend you have a tech check it out. Possibly a loose connection or other setup wrong, hard to say from here.

HI,

I know it means "electrical or mechanical problem" according to the manual. You probably are not able to read or even eject a CD. There is no solution offerred, so you will have to get professional help.

I will suggest first contacting Pioneer at www.pioneerelectronics.com, email or call tech support. Read the online user manual also if you don't have one. They might refer you to a local repair shop, and you can always try to get help from whoever installs the unit for you or you have bought it from.

Sorry that I won't have further knowledge on this. My instinct will be to disconnect the power completely and see if it resets.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate or accept the solution

I have a pioneer dehp6800mp and i want to install a ipod adapter cable, will the pioneer cd i 200 work? and will it also charge my ipod while its plugged in?


You would need the Pioneer CDIB100 iPod adapter instead.
It might charge your iPod, but it does not charge some iPod devices such as the Nano, iPod Touch, and iPhone.

Pioneer DEH-P9300 and Ipod Adapter Problem


The correct iPod adapter for this is the CD-IB100ii, not the PAC piece you bought. With the correct adapter you will be able to charge your iPod, get text and control from the head unit, and of course audio playback through your system.

If your Pioneer has a cassette deck the simple solution is to use a CD adapter for cassette. These can be purchased from Amazon from about 1 pound. Works perfectly for me. ANDO

Ipod connection


As far as iPod connections - they will work with a regular iPod and an iPod Nano. You have two options depending on how much you want to spend and how much convenience you want.


Option 1 - Use a Pioneer CD-IB100 adapter. This will plug into the docking port on the bottom of the IPod, charge it, offer control and song information on the head unit. You need to use this one and not the newer CD-I200 cable because your head unit is not compatible with the newer piece.


Option 2 - Use a Pioneer CD-RB10 adapter and a 3.5mm to RCA cable that will plug into the headphone jack of the iPod. You will only get audio input to the head unit but this option is somewhat cheaper.


As far as the clock settings - hold the 'source' button to shut the unit off(key still has to be on). Push the 'function' button until options appear - you can switch between options by repeatedly pushing the 'function' button and adjust settings by using the up/down/left/right arrows.

Nope, you have to have the CD in whilst entering a nav route, frustrating as it is...

You have to listen to your CDs via an auto changer.

Pioneer avic x1


GPS has global coverage. I see your problem is sourcing the map of Australia because the x1 comes only with Europe maps on CD. there may be a possibility the S2 maps work on the x1. Try contacting Pioneer Australia http://www.pioneer.com.au/customerservice/
