    Does NOT work with Pioneer NEX

    What I did not like and was VERY disappointing in was the Maestro RR interface. This was supposed to give me all the original functionality of my in car unit, plus all kinds of looks into the gauges and stuff like temp and oil pressure. I also thought it was supposed to simplify the hook up of the car stereo. Don't believe ANY of that! First off, the instructions DID NOT match the unit I have. Connectors were different (changed) on the unit shipped from what the instructions show. No explanation on how to hook up the new wires. Second, I still had to solder a LOT of wires. It may have simplified SOMEWHAT the soldering, but there is still a LOT more to do. I thought this was going to be plug and play. It is NOT. There is also a lot of talk bout the My Vehicle options Myeastro is supposed to open up. While it is no big deal to me, I must be part cats cuz I do like sparkly things. But I got NOTHING here... just a USB interface. My Car HUD has all kinds of stuff- open doors, tire pressure, olil pressure, etc. Nada from Maestro. But the thing that upsets me the most (and made me return this item!) is that the built in mic in my car was NOT recognized. Crutchfield Tech Support said, [quote] "With the Pioneer stereo it is only possible to maintain the Bluetooth mic in Ford vehicles with the Sync system. In your VW you will need to use the mic that came with the Pioneer and use the Bluetooth built in to the radio." [/quote] So promises of using all the stuff you already have in your car is a load of hooey. This item is NOT cheap, and it is an add on to an already expensive item. It does NOT take away the soldering tasks, and it certainly does not come close to doing what it promises. If this was twenty bucks I could deal with this, but 150 bucks for some that barely works, underperformed and causes more work than it saves is NOT a product I would recommend. I contacted iDatalink and got NO RESPONSE. Crutchfield responded quickly, but can't fix a bad product from iDataLink. All in all this unit was a lot of broken promises and expectations...

    Couldn't be happier! Installed in a 2008 F350 with a Kenwood DNX-571HD. I was able to monitor my exhaust temp so I knew when the regeneration was taking place to clean the exhaust. The Maestro pulled info like intake, transmission, coolant, engine temps. Boost for the turbo, door status and check engine info are all available too. When your check engine light comes on it will tell you the code and you can clear it from your radio. If my truck had tire pressure sensors it would also show me the pressure in each tire. My truck had SiriusXM factory, the Maestro integrated the oem tuner into the Kenwood flawlessly. Highly recommend this product with a Kenwood.

    This product is awesome works as intended. My one star is solely based on bestbuy. I bought this after weeks of issues with features not working a maestro tech drove down and found out the unit I received was a RR(256) the new model is RR(512) has to do with internal memory. I figured this out direct without the help of bestbuy. My guess is they have a surplus of old models in inventory. They should really swap those out with maestro. Costed me lots of time and additional money that should not have been an issue if I was sold the correct updated unit.

    This did what it was supposed to do. Make sure you check and see what features will work with your radio and your vehicle. So far the Pioneer NEX series will not show the gauges. Supposedly the new NEX 8200 series will support the gauge feature but they said that with the 8000 and 8100 series so we'll see I guess. I bought this along with the Alpine INE-W957HD and works just fine. Just double check your vehicle and if your radio will support it. If you have questions call the install bay and speak with an installer. I would stay away from the sales floor because they're just there to sling TVs and credit card financing offers.

    Worked "GREAT" with my AVIC-7200 NEX Unit!

    I had Best Buy install this unit, verses the PAC unit, that was initially installed. My personal opinion, was that the sounds and the chimes, as well as the controls on my Silverado 1500 worked and sounded MUCH BETTER with Maestro, verses the PAC system. All controls, gauges, and EVERYTHING THATS SUPPOSE TO WORK, simply does, after it was installed by Geek Squad, in Chrystal Lakes store! "EXCELENT" job, goes to Neal! You can tell the man takes "PRIDE" in all his installs, and knows "EXACTLY" what needs to be done, to make the install look great! Thanks again Neal!

    I installed this in my 05 magnum with a kenwood dnx-751hd Anything that the car know, you know. Intake air temperature, exhaust gas temperature, tire pressure, anything! you can also read and clear check engine lights with the new radio. This kit also lets you program what your steering wheel control buttons do. You can make each button have two functions depending on if you press or hold it. I would recommend that you have this installed at best buy because is pretty complicated and it must be updated through a computer through a secure website.

    I initially didn't know I would need something like this until my install guy mentioned I would lose all functionality from my VW GTI's steering wheel. Luckily there was another VW in the install bay so I got to see the Maestro unit in action. Great product. It could use a little more customization for a 2011 VW GTI, but there are firmware updates available. It would be nice to be able to update the unit without having to pull it out of the back of my head unit though. Very small and compact. Just make sure you also buy the converter kit as well.

    Bought this to connect my new Pioneer 4100-NEX stereo to my VW CC, along with the harness. I liked how easy it was to download the firmware based on my car's specs. However, the only issue I found is that some features that were available before I switched to this product are no longer available (no reset, auto dimmer doesn't work, and I can't change certain display settings) -- likely a result of the firmware. However, these are minor to the overall improvements.
