I would probably get one of these screens too, but I would like my Pioneer speakers to work. Where do you get one and how much do they cost?Hey everyone,
I've been looking into some options regarding replacing the factory MyLink screen with something Android Auto capable and likely will end up with one of the Tesla screens (I don't want a non-functional CD slot just sitting there, or potentially all the center stack buttons not working), but the big thing that seems very hit or miss - and incredibly undocumented in terms of all of these units is whether or not they are plug and play with the factory Pioneer amp/speakers.
I have looked through numerous posts and seen that some are and some aren't. I am interested in the ones that are, specifically as to why. I have a feeling they have a certain pin in the large main connector that goes to the car's harness (that used to plug into the back of the factory radio) that, I assume, gives the amp its turn-on signal.
Just figured I'd see if anyone knows off hand, as I have no interest in cutting up the car's harness.
I'm thinking about getting one just to mess around with it.There are like four million different ones - I mean, most of each style is the same, it just depends on some specs, the "brand" name, and how much it costs - though some seem to definitely vary in terms of the wiring to the vehicle side. For instance, most don't seem to work with the Pioneer system (without some kind of wiring changes) - but some do right out of the box.
I'm trying to figure out why. If it's as simple as pinning the remote turn-on lead into the connector in the right spot, then that's a pretty simple solution - but there are two pins that could be that connection...
I'd glady do that for you, but you kinda lost me all the wiring terms. 😀If you happen to get one before I do and want to try pinning in the Pioneer system into the main connector...
"Amplifier Control" is Pin 37 while "Entertainment Remote Enable Signal" is Pin 43 (both are also found back at the amplifier)...not sure which one of those wants the amp turn-on wire (and then what does the other one do?)
