  1. Hi all I am on Elantra AD 2018, and have had Nakamichi NBF618S sub, JBL speakers (front 2 only; back 2 is stock) for 2-3 years. Yesterday I changed my Stock HU to Pioneer Z9250BT. I have some observations below... hope experts here can help share your views/ explanation! 🙏🙂 1. Whereas previously volume on stock HU needs to be around 15-16 for a good (but not loud) listening experience, it is quite loud around 8-9 now... while I can pick up more background vocals and instruments in the music, I get ear fatigue more easily. I could further dial down the volume to reduce fatigue but if the volume is soft it seems to be a waste of the sub/ speaker/ pioneer HU setup since there is not really enjoyment in listening to v soft music. Is there anything I can do to enjoy the music and the increased clarity but yet reduce the ear fatigue? A little embarrassing to say, but slightly miss the old HU where it gave reasonable loudness without fatigue (although vocals and instruments were not as clear). 2. Is there any way to "turn off" EQ? In stock HU it was possible to turn off EQ and listen to music/ vocals in the "original" way, but in this HU seems I have to choose one of the pre-set settings [e.g. Natural, Vocal, Super Bass, etc]. I am slightly reluctant to choose any preset EQ, because it means that when I switch between say, pop and classical music, I will need to remember to change the EQ to another appropriate pre-set choice. Hence normally for any music player I will "turn off" EQ. 3. For "SPEAKER LEVEL" audio setting, the front 2 speakers are set at 4 dB, back 2 speakers are at 0 dB, while sub is at 6 dB. Do you know if this is the default factory setting, or was it "tuned" by the workshop? What is the default factory setting? What is the impact if I change the 2 speakers and sub to 0 dB? Will it cause audio quality to deteriorate? Thanks guys 🙏🙏🙏
  2. Any1 using this pioneer tablet ? Any feedback?
  3. Anyone had issue with gps? Connected to AA. Sometimes after driving a while, abt the 20min mark, HU map will lose its GPS and go crazy. Same for both waze and Google map. If I unplug and use my phone map, it works fine with correct location. Plug back to AA, Hu go crazy with location again. Fix: Restart phone n connect back doesn't help. Restart car will help. But driving half way I also can't find a place to restart my car. Abit hard to demo this to shop i buy from, unless I wait for HU gps to go crazy then quickly drive down to show them.
  4. A driver captures the moment when a motorcyclist almost met his end – all because of a tinted visor (and a dash of overconfidence). The cam car driver was driving behind a large prime mover and the motorcyclist along Pioneer Crescent in the video. The area is known to house several facilities and factories, some of which supply building materials and metals. The large truck signals right as it enters a bend before its designated turn. Here is a closer look: Upon noticing the signal, the motorcyclist ‘chiongs’ ahead, thinking that he could pass by the large vehicle. However, the rider receives a scary surprise when the prime mover suddenly turns. Here is a closer look: With his path blocked, the motorcyclist had no choice but to brake and stop his bike from crashing into the giant truck. He gently guides his bike to the side and performs what I call the ‘U-turn of shame”, all while raising his hand to apologise for the sudden scare.

  5. Hi guys, generally looking at changing to a 2 din HU. Very very new to this and virtually know nuts. Shortlisted the Pioneer AVH-Z5050BT mainly due to 2 reasons. Waze and ability to play videos from thumbdrive. Previously had a DVD HU and hated burning shows etc onto DVD so i could play it in the car. Anyone knows the price and comments about it? Did a search but it seems majority of the discussion is about the flagship X model. I'm not too big on the bluetooth function. My car is fairly noisy and i still prefer using the conventional in ear bluetooth earpiece. Not much music in my phone either so i'm unlikely to stream from my phone via spotify or internal music. However, will prefer having carplay as I will be able to mirror youtube videos from my iPhone. Majority of usage will be Waze and also music/videos/movies from an attached thumbdrive. Any recommendations? Thanks a lot!
  6. Anyone can spare a moment to lend me your Pioneer DEH-P8XXXMP or DEH-P9XXXMP's microphone? I bought my headunit w/o a microphone, so want to perform a Auto-EQ also cannot. Hopefully, a kind soul can lend me one so I can do this Auto-EQ. Thanks!
  7. Ever seen one of these foldable bicycles? The guy below probably has not. Now, this might not be very useful information (because it is not allowed) but apparently, our local train's railing can support a non-foldable bicycle. We thought it is an ingenious way to park or store one away. For those who are wondering what on earth is happening, below is an extract replicated from SMRT... "Some of you may have come across a video that is circulating online about a commuter with a bicycle on board a train. At around 7.10pm on 15 Dec, an SMRT staff tried to stop a male commuter with a non-foldable bicycle from entering the train at Woodlands station. The male commuter was uncooperative and forced his way into a north-bound train. The commuter subsequently transferred to a west-bound train at Jurong East station and exited at Pioneer station at about 7.50pm. We have since identified the commuter and made a police report. For the safety and comfort of all commuters, we would like to remind everyone to observe regulations when bringing foldable bicycles and personal mobility devices on board trains and buses." Check out what netizens have to say about this guy who flouted the law...
  8. About Android Auto Mirroring, CarPlay has been working fine but until Apple finally is happy to include other third-party navigation (rumoured end 2018), Apple map is crap - it's bringing me to timbuktu most of the time.. Recently trying to connect the HU with Mi5 but have not been successful. For those successfully using the mirroring, 1. What's the phone model please ? 2. To establish the connection the first time, do you need a USB cable to port 2 ? The manual doesn't say there's a need for a cable - just need to establish BT connection first. 3. Was a second USB cable included in the original package ? Thanks.
  9. Hello everyone. I have a Pioneer subwoofer TS-WX130DA and a Pioneer amp GM-D8704. The amp has 4 channel output for the speakers, and also an additional RCA output jack. Can I connect the subwoofer to the RCA output jack of the amp, instead of connecting to the head unit? What do I do with the head unit sub RCA output jack then? Do i simply leave it unconnected? Need some advice... Thank you.
  10. Hi, Soundstream AC.6 + Coaxial speakers + Pioneer TS-WX120A + Installation = $800 with warranty Like to know if this is worth it. TIA. Comparing Soundstream AC.6 vs Pioneer TS-A1606C. Which is better ? I'm not going for high end ICE. Mid range is good for me. Btw, my HU is Pioneer 8850.

  14. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/education/ntu-building-and-road-renamed-in-honour-of-pioneers Tan Lark Sye got some recognition finally worthy a road named after him on the piece of land he donated. Probably doesn’t resonate much with many, but Pretty sure the older Chinese speaking community has lots to say about this.

  17. This headunit is currently compatible with the 2019 RAV4 (can be compatible with other cars too, do update in this thread). I will post the steps to do the firmware update. Download the firmware file from the Pioneer website. https://sg.pioneercarentertainment.com/downloads This is the 18th March 2019 update. Version 08.04 https://sg.pioneercarentertainment.com/downloads_tc?title=DMH-ZS8250BT&link=https%3A%2F%2Fcms.pioneercarentertainment.com%2Ffiles%2FFirmware%2FDMH-ZS8250BT_v08-04.zip Use an empty thumb drive, format it to FAT32 and copy only the firmware file CVJ3242-B.avh into the drive. Follow these steps. Switch on the car's ignition and let the engine run. You should get to here... Wait for it to reach 100% (it will take a couple of minutes to load) and wait for the unit to reboot. Once the headunit is rebooted go to the settings, firmware Information, double check it's the updated version. You may off the ignition and pull out the thumb drive. Well done. You have successfully updated the headunit's firmware.
