My Ride: 2004 M3 Convertible
Pioneer NAV, Rear-View Cam, Bluetooth, SD, Button Controls, Custom Bezel, iPod etc...

***I GOT SCAMMED! Read second page***

I sold this guy (cnotesdip) my radio (x710bt) and accessories - he received it a week ago and installed it. I got an email from him that said "the dvd player is not playing any dvds i paid like 400 to have this installed and now it doesnt work"

I responded "It's not a DVD player it's a cd player." because it is NOT a DVD player, but a cd player. The dude escalates it to a Paypal dispute. He LIES outright claiming he called Pioneer and they said it's a problem with the laser eye.

He also lied and said I wouldn't respond to him, I RESPONDED IN 15 MINUTES TO HIS EMAIL!!
READ THE PAYPAL DISPUTE BELOW, the white picture!!!











I purchased this past winter. Best upgrade i did on my M3. Looked spectacular (almost as if factory), worked amazing!!

I just sold my car this weekend and wasn't going to let this go with the car (as it cost me $1800) so had stereo installer remove all.

* Pioneer 710bt Nav
* PAC Steering wheel controls (works like stock )
* i-Pod control/charger (controls i-Pod from Head Unit)
* Rear-View Camera (works great, esp if you have a Vert)
* Bluetooth and Micro-SD card built in
* E46 Custom Made Bezel $150 and fits perfect.

OMFG, I sold this guy (cnotesdip) my radio (x710bt) and accessories - he received it as week ago and installed it. I got an email from him that said "the dvd player is not playing any dvds i paid like 400 to have this installed and now it doesnt work"

I responded "It's not a DVD player it's a cd player." because it is NOT a DVD player, but a cd player. The dude escalates it to a Paypal dispute. He LIES outright claiming he called Pioneer and they said it's a problem with the laser eye.

He responded that now he's not getting turn-by-turn voice audio.... I know it works fine, must be user error or installation. He says he'll remove the paypal dispute after he gets that fixed... unreal.

You didn't email me any error codes, EVER!! You LIED and said you CALLED Pioneer and they TOLD you it was a bad laser eye. YOU SAID IT IN THE PAYPAL DISPUTE!

You called my work phone on a Sunday and left ONE message, I DONT WORK ON SUNDAYS!! THEN you emailed me once, I emailed you back within minutes and told you it doesn't play DVD's cause it's NOT A DVD PLAYER! THEN you created a Paypal dispute. Then once you realized it was your fault NOT mine that it doesn't play DVD's you are saying the voice guidance doesnt work? It works PERFECT! Check iwth your installer!

The unit works perfect, there is NOTHING wrong with it. On top of that it has a full manufacturer warranty. You have NOTHING to worry about. It is wrong to make a Paypal claim!

You said you "called pioneer and they *told* you it could be a bad laser eye" Why did you lie?

Listen man, the unit works perfect. There were never any problems.

Knowledgebase: Car Product - Navigation
How do I turn off the voice guidance sound of navigation?
How do I turn off the voice guidance sound of navigation? It mutes my music even though I have turned it all the way down.
Voice Guidance with the AVIC-F500BT, AVIC-F700BT, AVIC-F7010BT, AVIC-F900BT, AVIC-F90BT

There is no off/on control for the navigation Voice Guidance. The way the system works is that it's priority during Route Guidance Mode is to overlay guidance audio on top of the audio of the A/V source. So if you are listening to the radio, and a guidance phrase is to occur, the system will mute the audio of the A/V source in order to inject the audio of the guidance phrase. However, if you have turned the voice volume down all the way, the radio will continue to play while you do not hear any Voice Guidance.

http://208.220.235.52:7001/eSupportJ...tion_id=F19167

TURN UP THE VOLUME SEPARATELY ON THE VOICE GUIDANCE! That is your problem.

No voice guidence while on route.
While on route I don't hear the voice guidance, however if I touch the yellow flag on the map, and I can hear the voice guidance.

Resetting the unit may resolve this issue. If you still can't hear the commands, check your speed sensor wire. It may not be connected properly. You can disconnect the speed sensor wire and see if the commands start again. If they do, you will need to have the installation checked by a professional.

I don't believe this. The bluetooth works perfect and so does the Navigation. If it broke it did so OUT of my care! If it is, infact broken, which I highly doubt, you can take it to a Pioneer authorized dealer and get it fixed for free, as it is under warranty!

cnotesdip,

I would just like to say, I'm very sorry you didn't realize it wasn't a DVD player. I'm not exactly sure why you thought it was, I never said it was, and It surely didn't say that in the Ebay ad... I wish you had looked closer, asked or even done your own research - still, I certainly understand your level of frustration, and for that I'm truly sorry.

As for the other problems you're having, specifically voice-guidance audio and bluetooth - I'm confident, as I've said many other times, I'm sure the unit is working 100% perfectly, just as it was the day I shipped it off.

My suggestion would be to take it back to your installer and I'm sure between you guys, you can figure it out. If however, in the unlikely event that something did go wrong with it and it broke, know that it's covered under the factory warranty, so everything will be ok.

Anyhow, it's a nice unit and you got some great stuff with it, at a pretty decent price I might add - so with that, I hope you get many years of enjoyment from it.

It's been my pleasure doing business with you, if you should have any other problems, questions or concerns, DO NOT hesitate to contact me and I'll do anything within my means to help.

Your bud,
Gant

PS. Try a new installer next time, you got ripped off. Mine charged me $200 for the entire project and then removed it all for free.

Ok so here's the deal. Paypal already gave the money back from when they closed it the first time, I removed it from the account and they have NO more access to it. I just verified this with them! Don't believe me? ASK EM!

I just talked to a Paypal rep for the last 30 minutes. After getting my story, they told me they can NOT change their appeal decision UNTIL i receive the product back, but here's what you can do - THIS is what he TOLD me to do -- Paypal WILL be overturn your appeal IF i take it to a dealer, they test it out and everything works. THEN they WILL overturn it and Paypal will even cover any expenses including cost to ship it back to YOU! All I need is documentation showing it works from an authorized tech.

They even went further. They said if it IS in-fact broken, I have 30 days to get it fixed, then send them documentation that it was fixed and it's working properly and they WILL overturn your appeal. I will then send it back to you and you WILL be stuck with it at that point and you'll have to install it in your car ALL over again!

Keep in mind, they have NO access to the $750 anymore and I am confident that your appeal WILL be overturned. They told ME if you have any questions about MY appeal once I get the unit back to call Paypal and they will explain to YOU exactly what I just said.

THere is NO way you will be getting $750 from me and you BETTER think twice before you spend your hard earned money shipping it back, cause it will be coming RIGHT back to you!

PS. When the best buy guy uninstalled the unit, not only did the receipt say EVERY electronic item on my car is working including wipers, brake lights, turn signals.. They tested the stereo and it worked fine and it's documented on the receipt.

Man. This sux cause it always worked perfect for me. Paired my phone VIA bluetooth and worked through the speakers PERFECT. Someone hooked something up wrong - they had to have. Why don't we call pioneer on Monday. I'll do anything to help you. Also, if you really want to play video, you can play video through the sd card
