    Pioneer has informed customers it has discovered an incompatibility between iOS 11 and AppRadio Mode on certain in-dash receivers it sells.

    [​IMG]

    If you connect an iPhone or iPod touch that has been updated to iOS 11 and launch AppRadio Mode, you will experience a blank screen or other display malfunction that disables AppRadio Mode, according to the company.

    Pioneer said it is working to resolve the issue and will update a notice posted on its website once firmware updates for the receivers are available. For now, the only solution to maintain compatibility is to remain on iOS 10.

    AppRadio Mode is Pioneer's own interface for running over 30 compatible smartphone apps, browsing the web, navigating, and listening to music, podcasts, and internet radio through your car's speakers.

    Pioneer's list of affected models include many AVH, AVIC, and SPH receivers, some of which double as aftermarket CarPlay systems.

    (Thanks, Lawrence!)

    AppRadio stopped working on mine and I was thrilled because now it doesn't hijack my phone when I open Waze.

    All of these “manufacturers’ own interfaces” always end up being garbage. I wish they would just get out of the way and stop trying to shove their middleware into everyone’s situation.

    Gross incompetence. They should have known about this with beta one and had a fix day of release

    My 8201Nex is working fine with iOS11. I don't have any desire to use the AppRadio part of the system. CarPlay all the way and the built in Nav for when I'm out of cell range.

    I have the Pioneer AppRadio 4 with CarPlay and it works fine with my iPhone 6s Plus running iOS 11. The AppRadio has been updated to firmware 1.18 which was available last month. No issues.

    AppRadio is the name of certain Pioneer receivers. They are fully CarPlay compatible.

    I can’t make calls or use Siri since iOS 11 with my pioneer/CarPlay. It is like it can’t hear me. Works fine with ios 10.

    Pioneer usually has my respect, but this is inexcusable. Didn't they know about this during the beta TESTING period of iOS 11?

    As are most things made by Apple, right?

    You're not going to stop a large majority of people from making poor decisions while driving, so you might as well put the information they're looking for in a safer place that's easier to access.

    I own an affected unit and don't even know what the hell "AppRadio" is. When I plug my phone in it launches Car Play and it has worked great through all the betas.

    AppRadio mode is in most higher end Pioneer head units regardless of name. I have an affected head unit myself, the popular AVH-4100NEX, and have never once wanted AppRadio mode over CarPlay.

    Completely disagree. It was a rough start at first in iOS 9 but iOS 10 improved on its reliability and in iOS 11 it’s pretty fast and even more solid. I spend most of my driving time in it (as opposed to my Pioneer unit’s native UI).

    I have an Avic 8200 Nex, and have loved it. iOS11 makes car play a little nicer, especially the maps. I have never even tried AppRadio though, CarPlay is too nice/convenient for me. But, to each their own, and it sucks for those that are affected.

    Typical Pioneer. I had the first couple AppRadio head units, they sucked. Crummy software, poorly supported. These bozos didn’t even beta test iOS 11..

    I’m having an unrelated issue in my Ford where when I ask Siri to play music, it no longer automatically switches to the Bluetooth audio input.

    ??? I’m confused. What car stereo does Apple actually make and what system does ANYONE make with CarPlay natively embedded?

    CarPlay keeps disconnecting from my head unit in my 2017 Camaro since iOS 11. Restarting my iPhone 7+ each and every time seems to fix it, but this is getting old.

    CarPlay seems to be affected in some ways too. I started getting an error message on my Pioneer AVH-4100NEX occasionally the day I installed iOS 11. Unplugging it and plugging it back in solves the problem, but it's a little annoying that I have to go through this.

    Let's see, we have
    1) An auto maker's hardware+firmware
    2) A second layer of hardware+firmware from a third party
    3) Apple's own brew of software seeking a competitive edge

    What could possibly go wrong here? :rolleyes:

    And this is why I moved away from Pioneer and went with an Alpine ILX-007. It's upgraded smoothly through 3 iOS versions without any firmware patches because they followed all of the standards and don't add in their own garbage.

    I’ve found waiting till the 4100 is completely booted before plugged it in solves all the issues I had with CarPlay not launching or it crashing.
