How to connect AVH 4000nex

OK so I have been using this app for over two years. And because my Apple CarPlay isn't working properly I was really forced to kind of learn all the bugs and how to get around them. So this post is strictly to help someone who may have the same issues I had, just doesn't seem to connect. First if you are using an iPhone you need the lightning cable and the HDMI cable that attaches to the adapter that goes in the iPhone. In addition, you have to have the settings correct--- iPhone, AV adapter and the AppRadio will work--sometimes. What seems to help on the connection is rebooting the iPhone and then at times rebooting the radio. Yes difficult to do when you're driving of course. Luckily when my radio was installed I have a cut off switch that reboots the radio. I kind a like the app only because I can use WAZE instead of the traditional iPhone maps when in CarPlay. The idea is fantastic but the app is just very buggy; yes I drove myself crazy for over a week trying to figure all the stuff out.

Won't work

**UPDATE** After updating to the latest OSI on my iPhone, the app has started working like it should. I have used it for three days now and it launches WAZE, NAVMII and Appradio Live without any problems. I hope that it continues so I will upgrade my rating to 4 stars. ---I bought a new Pioneer radio for my car. After installation, I downloaded Appradio Live. It powered up an worked fine the first day. Downloaded Waze and everything worked great. Day two, it wouldn't launch either app. I contacted Pioneer support and they told me I had to have Appradio so I downloaded it. Still nothing. My phone asks me if I want to launch Appradio Live and I "allow". Head unit says trying to connect. Nothing happens. On day one when I launched Live, the logo was in color when I opened the app but since then it is subdued. I can get to and change settings on my phone app but it still won't launch. Tired of trying. I guess that my expensive radio will just be just for answering Bluetooth calls. I would send radio back if it wasn't so hard to install. Come on Pioneer, if you are going to advertise this as a selling point for your radio at least get it to work.

Great concept but....

This app has the potential to be great but it needs work. Waze will not open and work at all with this app. It wants to but it just can’t get there. My phone will show it connected and I can hear the voice through my radio but nothing on the screen. The main reason I wanted this app was so I could have a navigation head unit at half the price. Please fix this problem. When you do and it works for a while with no problems I’ll think about updating this review. Until then 1 star it is and that only because I can’t give anything lower.
