Escort MAX3 with MRR2 / Pioneer 6600NEX

Post by sandnath »

Hello,

I got these installed RR2+TO3+WC6600NEX and working ok for most things. I would like to add Escort MAX 3. Do I need
any extra adapter to connect the MAX 3 ?

Thanks
SanD

There is an adapter you will need for the Max3 radar detector, you can get it from Ecort directly or Crutchfiled has it also.

Will this work?

It says for JVC or KEnwood. I have Pionner. Hope this works for Pioneer too ??

that's it...it was originally designed for Kenwood and JVC but since Pioneer has now jumped on board and your radio is one that will work.

Hello Billr,

I went with your advice, but unfortunately, after spending $400+ it is not working. I had it professionally installed - MAX3 and that above cable from crutchfield. After that, we flashed it twice but NO LUCK. The MAX 3 turns on but Pioneer cannot show it on the "Car Features" UI. The radar detector button is greyed out after all these.

What should I do? Can you please advise?

Thanks
SanD

Does the RR2 blink red 2x by chance?

Thank you for your response. But I do not know. I was not there when they installed it. I asked your question to them. I will let you know when they reply. They are MECP certified installers - I am pretty sure they know what they are doing.

I flashed it twice after reaching home. But it did not work out.

Hello,
I asked the installer, he does not remember seeing that. SO what should I do?
How can we resolve this?

Thanks

My installer also said that there is no wiring issue as the MAX3 is powering ON and so it is about communication
between MAX3 and RR2 and WC6600NEX

So we're going to assume that everything is correct so I'll have to send this up to the engineers and see what they say. I'll report back once I have some info from them.

I'm going to assume this part was done also:
https://adsdata-my.sharepoint.com/:v:/g ... w?e=Ls0Qsr

and also make sure the radio has the latest updates from Pioneer.

Thank you for sharing the link but I could not open it as it says I do not have permission.

And to answer your question - Yes - I had done the latest firmware update to the Pioneer taking the firmware file in a USB and it successfully completed the update.

One question: My installer was telling me that we can also try doing a "reset" of the RR2. I did not get time to ask him what it means. Can you please tell me how I can do a "reset"? Is it through the iPhone app which I used to "flash" or some other way?
