I would just go ahead and get the 3.0 update that just came out last week. You should have preordered it though, it was 1/2 off for a while.

I know, Im skeptical but its almost worth trying and just make sure you keep any info you can just in case you need it later to go after them or whatever.

some one just try it and let me know if you actually get it and if it works lol.

Well for one the touch screen is very picky on where u touch when selecting stuff. And the voice recognition that doesn't work well at all Makes the iPod take a very long time to load beause every time u turn it on it's loads the stuff in the voice software... Annoying for something that I'd never use... Also... The text for track names is smashed if the title is too long. They are harder to bypass the brake.. And I just plain just don't like em that much... Now the Avic d3... That's a good unit.

This is just from my experience, my unit is fully updated so it was probably different from yours. The iPod thing has never happened to me after the first time. Once it loads the VR stuff it only does it once, every time after that its instant. I didn't even plug my mic back in though when i moved it to the 150 due to lack of use. It doesn't smash the track name, it will scroll through it. The brake bypass is insanely easy, all you do is ground the parking brake wire just like any other unit. The D3 and F-series are almost identical in software, just a little different on the extra. Seems like I need to make a video to get rid of these myths

Go with the 900bt, they can be found on ebay pretty cheap. then go to avic411 and follow the directions to mod the os to be that of the new AVIC U series and presto.

Do you mean update the OS? Or did the find a way to put a whole new OS on it? I bought the 3.0 update from Pioneer, wasn't too expensive and saved me all that trouble of downloading stuff.

I have what you have except my AVIC thinks its a U series. Other than that I doubt there is much difference. All the stuff to do it for free is on Avic411.

Yes sir. Some of those simple mods make all the difference. I have a few mods I thought up that I really want to do, but I just haven't had the time to sit around and tinker with the data.zip. One day, one day.
