Flashing for AVH-X5700bhs

Post by SNYPER »

bought a pioneer AVH-X5700bhs because it said "maestro compatible" well i guess its not fully compatible? Any way the book says to flash using last 6 digits of last number on SER. sticker which im guessing thats last 6 of serial number? web updater has no results and not excepting it. Am i using the right number?

2016 ford explorer sport -w- sony ford sync system

They should not list as meastro compatible if not fully compatible im pretty P.O about this!!

That radio has limited idatalink compatibility, and is not able to be used for the My Ford Touch replacement applications. In applications were it can be used, that radio would use the 6 numeric digits of the serial number, no letters.

Power on the radio manually and pull the device number in the system info page of the Pioneer to verify it matches what you have on the radio's sticker. However like Zack stated if the vehicle is equipped with the 8" screen that radio is not compatible.

This is not the case with this particular vehicle because of everything the factory radio does. We need to have a radio that is capable of displaying and controlling the OEM features of the vehicle.
