Pioneer AVH-X8850BT

Recommended Posts

U can install a booster, which I did.

Thank you bro.

 

I called Pioneer, they recommended the same thing or an external antenna.

 

They are saying the reception depends on the car antenna routing. But I think the 8850 tuner is not very good.

FM/AM is a legacy technology, how can such advance system can't receive FM Radio properly.

 

Good luck guys.

Actually not really is due to 8850 tuner is not very good.

 

In actual fact is it because Singapore is still using FM Analog radio instead of DAB. There would not be interference for Digital Audio Broadcast.

 

Cheers!

Have you guys tried playing with the "Local" and "Regional" radio settings to see if it makes any difference?

Could I check which offline car navigation system did you use for trips to Malaysia? Is Sygic compatible with the Pioneer system?

Did you change anything recently? You also need to describe what your setup is. 

 

I would be quite surprised if you've got nothing connected and it keeps hanging.

 

Might be indicative of hardware failure if that were the case.

My 8850BT is connected to an amplifier and reverse camera.

It was installed by the previous owner of my car, so i do not eeally know the actual setup

Hi,

 

What do you mean by "hanging"?

 

No sound from the speakers?

Touchscreen not responding?

Head Unit not power up?

Pretty strange for your scenario, especially for a Pioneer HU.

 

Is this happening very long or recently?

Did you just purchase or take over this ride?

 

If Yes, you may want to contact your Dealer to assist you to send to their appointment audio shop to troubleshoot.

Hi All,

 

Need help. I am playing videos from a USB stick on the Pioneer AVH-X8850BT. It does not look like there is a random (i.e. shuffle) play mode which is odd, at least to me. Has anyone been able to have random play mode when playing videos from USB?

 

Thanks so much!

Hello, 
I'm debating between the X8850 and the Z5050 - which do you think is better especially sound wise? I can about the Carplay implementation too, does it work well on both units? Only one of them?

Any thoughts or advice is appreciated, thank you!
