    Thanks, Phil. Have you noticed any changes in operation or the UI in v1.05?

    I see the 1.05 update instructions specify USB1 only. The instructions for updating from 1.01 to 1.03 specified either USB1 or SD Card and I used the SD Card (nice to not have to dig into the dash). Can the SD Card be used for the 1.05 update as well? Or must we use USB1?

    I *have* submitted a query to Pioneer support, but thought I'd ask here as well.

    Thank you,

    SD card works fine. (And because Android Auto only works in USB2 and I don't have anything in USB1, it's how I have to update.)

    Phil - Can you reach out to Pioneer to find if this update is coming to the the AVIC models in the rest of the world.

    Currently they are on 1.03 just like the NEX models were.

    Has anyone noticed some strange USB port behavior since this firmware update? I usually have my iPod running alongside Android Auto in my 8100NEX. If I play (for example) one of my downloaded podcasts from my phone, and want to switch back, all I would do was go back into the Pioneer interface and select iPod 1 and it would resume. Now, when I do this, the iPod is stuck on "Ready", unless I unplug the phone and audio resumes. It feels as if the audio resource now needs to be freed if you run audio from the Android Auto interface now.

    After further review, I believe this is now a new "feature" of the Android Auto app.
    I "downgraded" the firmware back to 1.03 and the behavior persisted.
    There are a lot of things about the latest version of AA that leave much to be desired, chief among them the resume behavior/omission of the "pause" function.

    Thankfully, the LG V10 works way better with Android Auto (as far as booting up) than the Galaxy S5 ever did.

    There are two parts to this update: head unit firmware and Bluetooth software. Firmware update went fine, but I did not get an indication that the BT update was working and the version did not update to HW01-SW03.41.11. There was no error message displayed. Have others had success doing the BT update?

    I've had the same BT update issue too. No error message, saying update is complete, but it doesn't show that it is running the new BT (xx3.41.11) firmware.

    The link is where i got the update from. Am Sorry for the delayed response, but i don't come on here all that often, and to answer your query about 77DAB not having a update thats true, if you went looking for the update on the official F77DAB it will still only have 1.03.. but if you went on the link i sent.. it should clearly say that the update is indeed for F77DAB

    I can confirm if you follow the AVICSYNC link it does provide a 1.05 firmware update for EU models.

    However the change files says that this update is not needed unless you want to use AVICSYNC in the EU.

    I am going to install it anyway - but that would explain why it doesn't show on the main page. I would assume the March update had the same bug fixes and updates as the November US update therefore.

    I updated my F77DAB using the Avicsync link.

    Word of warning my initial USB stick failed the update for some reason. So I tried another and it worked. I was concerned I had damaged my head unit and would have to return it to pioneer. I would recommend anyone who does the update has a back up USB stick or SD card just in case.

    As if I had not I would not be happy now!

    Ran this update and now I'm running into all kinds of issues with android auto. Any chance anyone still has the 1.03 update saved?
    Pioneer as expected has declined to provide it.

    Pretty sure I backed it up. I'll try to remember to have a look when I get home.
