    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)

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 am looking for reccomedations. I have a 2003 VW Passat. I would like to purchas a Touchscreen, DVD/GPS/CD player that will fit in the center console, neatly, any recommendations?


The Pioneer AVIC systems are fantastic. I have a Jensen VM9311TS which doesn't have GPS, but it has the other features, plus XM Radio and iPod interface, and it's a great unit that I love having. Much less money too (less than $400, vs the $1500-2500 for the AVIC).

Try resetting your Ipod. I had the same problem with 3 different Pioneer head units. This solution worked just fine.

You also might not want to connect or disconnect the Ipod when the head unit is on.

Hello, I have the pioneer AVIC 700bt. When I plug my Ipod nano into the USB adapter on the head unit, the Ipod display comes up right away and it shows that it is playing but there is no sound coming...


You will need to be using the CD-IU230V cable for the iPod.
After connections, you will also need to follow these step:
Press "menu".
Press "settings"
Press " AV Settings"
Press "AV1 Input" multiple times until it says iPod.

You will now be able to hear the sound from the ipod when it is selected as a source.

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/
