Navigation stopped working properly after xm installation
I own a factory installed AVIC-N2 navigation system for my car. Less than a month ago I had Bestbuy install the GEX-P920XM XM satellite tuner. The XM works really well and I'm very happy with it, but ever since then my navigation system hasn't been working properly.
When I set a route, the navigation system changes it every couple of seconds and never stays on one route. Also, the estimated time of arrival box just shows ##### instead of what time the destination will be reached. Sorry that I can't describe the problem well, but this has never happened to me before. I even reset it and the problem still exists. Does it sound like Bestbuy messed up something in hardware (such as a plug) or could it be something as simple as a setting?
Thanks in advance for the help,
Re: navigation stopped working properly after xm...
It seems to me that they have installed something incorrectly and that it is interfering with your nav,ring the company to see if they are compatible to work together. if they are then they need to check they have installed it correctly. hope this helps

Manual (PDF) for AVIC-N2 can be downloaded here. (It might take up to 2 minutes, depending on your internet connection).
Chapter 5 of the manual deals with "Customizing your navigation system." Page 67 lists specific instructions on how to change the time.
The Avic N2 is only XM ready not Sirius ready like the N3, which is SAT ready(both XM and Sirius). If you must have your Sirius the only option left for you is use the rear input on the hide away unit but you won't have it on the touchscreen. There is one more expensive option by have your N2 hardware upgrade to N3, some Ebayer have that service offer for about $275. It's done by replace a surface mounted chip with 70 plus leads. That would take some expert de-solder and solder skill with a solder torch or
a tech's heat gun. I can do it but I don't know which chip it is. I have an immaculate N3 for sale on Ebay. Maybe you could sell your N2 and buy an N3. I usually get about $550-$650 for an N2 depend on the condition. Hope that I did some help. You can call me at 801-414-4566, I would do anything I can. Goodluck.
You will need a gps antenna, 30 pins data cable and an antenna extension to do basic installation set. For more precise set up you will also need reverse and speed signal sensor wires(pink and purple).
The new ribbon cables had also found to be defected and failed some within 3 months, the best ribbon cables are sold by that guy on ebay. His ribbon cables meet military spec. I have no affiliate with him but good service will get you good reputation.
Did you try to contact Pioneer and express the problem? May be you should check all of your XM tuner bus cable, XM antenna and power wires connection see if they became loose when you removed it last time.
