Installed this Pioneer double din today.
Mainly for iphone bluetooth and handsfree calling.
Pretty happy with how it all turned out.

Does look good, want to do this myself. Assume this was plug n play with some specific harness or adapter? Are the steering wheel controls maintained?

Hey sneaky did you have to trim back alot of the fascia for it to fit? I was going to install that one but ended up with a kenwood instead. The kenwood had built in steering wheel support meaning I did not need to purchase additional adaptors to make it work, also the brake bypass I only needed to simply groud. The pioneer will require an additional multi bypass adapter to watch videos while driving.

Pioneer AVIC-F960DAB going in soon, pictures to follow. I'm really looking forward to seeing how CarPlay works on my long road trip.

Hey,
Yep needed an adapter to use steering controls. Brake bypass only needed ground also.
Also have a rear camera to go in but havent had time to mount it yet.
Yes, i also had to trim the fascia.....a lot, but you cant tell once installed.

Started my audio upgrade, first up was to replace the stock paper speakers. Shopped the following products:

Pioneer TS-R1650S (JB Hifi 30% discount $55.30)
Pioneer TS-G1344R (eBay $46.50)
Aerpro 16mm Speaker Spacers AP3161 (eBay $14.40)
Response Sound Deadener x 4 (Jaycar $107.60)
Assorted fasteners (Bunnings ~$25)

Stock wiring colours were a challenge to determine what was pos/neg, as online guidance was not correct.

Front Left: Brown/white (pos) Green (neg)
Front Right: Pink (pos) white/black (neg)
Rear: (both sides): white (pos) red/black (neg)

Next is the install of my Pioneer AVIC-F960DAB. I'm still trying to find a solution to bypass the handbrake, if anybody has any tips, feel free to PM me.

Nice work there.

To bypass the handbrake requirement, just earth the wire from the headunit. That's the standard work-around to get the screen to work while driving.

Finally got my Pioneer AVIC-F960DAB installed.

Costings:

Head Unit (eBay new) $950
Pioneer ND-BC6 Reverse Camera (US eBay) $167.21
CD-IH202 (eBay generic) $20.30
CD-IU201V for iPod classic connection (eBay generic) $11.99
ISO Wiring harness (AERPRO APP090) $13.55

Install $426.30

Total: $1589.35

My main reason for the upgrade, was that I was sick of using the crappy radio broadcast system to use my iPhone/iPod with my car stereo once I got outside radio reception. And as I'm doing a 3 week drive across Australia, music and it's quality sound will be integral to making it a great Australian road-trip. The navigation feature will of course be very useful too, the system can use it's on-board navigation system, or in mobile reception through Carplay, use the smartphone navigation system.

In addition to the online reviews, I'm impressed with the Carplay functionality, it's going to be an attractive feature in new cars. The Spotify application is a slightly clunky, and highlights some areas where applications and features of the unit will need refinement in future. Navigation using the AVIC unit is fantastic. As there is no DAB stations where I presently live, I can't comment on the digital radio, but it will be used in the future.

After I got home I noticed the A-pillar trim was loose (was removed to install the hands-free microphone), and eventually fell into my driver position whilst I was driving, a bit of an uncool surprise. After a little research online, the metal clips that hold the trim are very prone to breakage, so I've order some new clips 3 x $2.85 (part 909100027). I could've argued for the installer to pay costs, but that's a bit unreasonable if they are known to break.

Also big thanks to Fozzy23 and QikGT for the info regarding handbrake bypass. I was concerned that on some other AVIC forums the handbrake bypass wouldn't work. I can confirm, that for AU models at least, it does work.

My car has no steering wheel controls, so I can't answer any queries there.
