AVH-X5500BHS and AVH-X3500BHS Firmware Update for iPhone® 5 Compatibility (August 2013)
AVH-X5500BHS and AVH-X3500BHS Firmware Update for iPhone® 5
Compatibility (August 2013)
This firmware update applies only to AVH-X5500BHS and AVH-X3500BHS units sold in the United
States and Canada and provides AppRadio Mode support and Video playback for the iPhone® 5 and
fifth generation iPod® touch. If you do not own an iPhone 5 or fifth generation iPod touch, there is no
need to install this update.
In order to perform this update, the following items are needed:
•
•
•
•
Pioneer AVH-X5500BHS or AVH-X3500BHS DVD Receiver
USB storage device
Pioneer CD-IV202AV VGA/USB Interface cable for iPod/iPhone (sold separately)
Lightning to USB Cable and Lightning to VGA adapter (Apple Inc. products, sold
separately)
The following preparatory steps must first be undertaken in order to connect an iPhone 5 with lightning
connector to your unit and use AppRadio Mode.
A. Download the firmware update files from Pioneer's website
B. Update the firmware on your unit
C. Connect your iPhone 5 to your unit using a VGA/USB interface cable for iPod/iPhone
(CD-IV202AV, sold separately)
D. Pair and connect your iPhone 5 with your unit via Bluetooth wireless technology
Once Steps A through D have been completed, the [Apps] key on the Home screen will become
active, allowing the user to switch to AppRadio Mode.
NOTE:
This firmware update will provide enhanced iPhone 5 compatibility to enable AppRadio Mode;
however, due to a change in communication with the Pandora internet radio app, album art will no
longer be available when using Pandora. If you have already performed the May 2013 version of
this firmware update and want to improve the stability of your Pandora experience, you will
need to download the updated files and begin at Step 13 to perform the PEH406A.bin update.
IMPORTANT
z iPod source is not available when using an iPhone with Lightning connector in AppRadio Mode.
When you want to play music and/or video files on your iPhone with Lightning connector, please
first install CarMediaPlayer on your iPhone with Lightning connector, and then launch
CarMediaPlayer while in AppRadio Mode.
z When using AppRadio Mode while simultaneously listening to the Bluetooth Audio source or a
compatible music application in the background, there will be slight delay in the touchscreen
response of the Pioneer in-dash multimedia unit, so it is not necessary to press the touchscreen
repeatedly. Pausing the background audio, or selecting an audio source other than an app or
Bluetooth Audio, such as Radio, CD, or Satellite Radio, will restore the AppRadio Mode
touchscreen response time.
