Question about Pioneer AVIC-Z1 Car DVD Player
I have an AVIC-Z1 in an '01 F-150. Shipped the truck to Hawaii, after about a week I have lost almost all functions! Tuner is good, mapping is good, but no address search, background change, etc. I did have to change the touch screen due to cracking. Functions quit before that. I also have a bypass switch installed, which now makes no difference. Pioneer wants me to send the unit in......its not the unit....or is it??????
It actually sounds like you don't have your parking break wire (light green wire on wireing harness) grounded. I have an 06 F150 and the same thing happened to me when I instaled it. I had no address search and some other functions didn't work as well. Try to locate the light green wire and ground that to anything metal. Hope this helps, the install manual isn't very good at describing this.

May very well be the unit...the hard drive inside may have been damaged during shipping (rare, but not uncommon). Was the touch screen damaged during transit?
Also, try disconnecting constant power (hard reset) from the unit and see is the reset helps. Downloadable from Pioneer's website is a firmware update for the Z1, although this usually just works to help freezes.
