Pioneer’s Advanced Remote Control (Pioneer ARC) app converts your i Phone* into a powerful touchscreen remote control, which allows you to control and customize your compatible Pioneer car stereo.Pioneer ARC lets you browse your favorite music, switch sources (FM tuner, Bluetooth Audio, etc), launch 3rd party apps, customize the illumination colors and audio settings of your Pioneer system.The amount of time it takes to install an update depends on the size of the update.If you're performing the update over a wireless connection, it also depends on the speed of that connection. ANDROID USERS BEWAREIn reviewing the stereo I was lead to believe that it would run a number of Android apps including Waze via App Radio 4, but after receiving the systems and applying the recommended patch, I was presented with App Radio Live. What wasn't clear was if firmware updates were cumulative or not.Just bought all metra products and some butt connectors and had it done in about 2 hrs. HD radio sounds super clear compared to regular am fm. I bout this unit first to have hands free phone calls. When I start the engine again, the Pioneer unit just sits there - blacked out and unresponsive. I didn't notice any real changes with the 8.31 update. BDP-LX70A : If the version number is 3.45 or higher, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
FIRMWARE UPDATEThe unit came with v8.08 firmware installed, so I looked it up and saw that the most recent version on the Pioneer site was 8.31.I'm trying to run the i Phone version on my i Pad and the volume doesn't work, I can't search through the music on my i Pad and I can't switch sources.I'm in the middle of changing my dash over to have an i Pad as my UI.Discover more Find the perfect Pioneer product to upgrade your car.Try our new and easy-to-use tool to find out which Pioneer products fit your car.All you need is your car brand, model and year and everything is automatically displayed.
