pioneer avic-2

Hi there:

Just checking if any body have installed the Pioneer Avic-2 with the back up camera?

How about the steering wheel volume controls, any problems or special adapter?
Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.

You mean the Avic D2 I think. Yeah, check the search function. There are some threads about installs of that head unit.

Re: pioneer avic-2

Just wrapped up a Z2 install with the backup cam. One thing to note - the reverse lead needed by the Z2 is a Red-Yellow wire in the driver's side kick panel. Some folks have split open the wire harness under the door sill and tapped there - YMMV.

The Red-Yellow wire is different than the Yellow-Red wire. The one you want to tap is mostly red with a thin yellow stripe - not the other way around.

I have a Avic D2 nav system installed w/ back camera, ipod video interface, steering wheel control & XM. Everything works great. Had it installed at CarTunes in Largo FL.

...just posted a thread regarding a clean PAC SWI-PS steering wheel control. Programming isn't that bad, and it worked on the first try. ...very happy with it, and the Wife Acceptance Factor (WAF) is two thumbs up.

Re: pioneer avic-2

Just finished a Z2 install as well, no back up camera...who can afford the anything after buying this head unit???

Worth every penny though.

To bypass go to AVIC411.com and look for pre/post june bypass files. You have to update your system and then you can just ground two wires and be done with it. Took me a while to realize this.

...installed the mic on the steering column. Folks tell me it doesn't sound too great, so am thinging of relocating to the headliner (somewhere, somehow). The A pillar and the rear-view mirror seem too far away.

The bluetooth module is mounted just to the right of the glovebox. There is a niche just inside the panel, and used some two-sided heavy duty tape to secure it - works great.

Re: pioneer avic-2

Same with Kents, mic is on steering column, looks funny but works well. I dont have BlueTooth interface, so I can't comment on callers hearing me, but the voice activated features work quick and easily.

Feedback from the AVIC411.com forum suggested the top of the A-pillar. So given your comments I think I will try that location. I'll mount the bluetooth module where u suggested.

Thanks
