Pioneer Posts AppRadio Firmware Download Links, But Broken
Looks like the links for the anticipated AppRadio firmware update, version 2.50, have just been posted on Pioneer's website. However, the links are not active yet. Finding them isn't easy either. You have to use the custom link below to reach the firmware page.
Here's the link... http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/AppRadio/AppRadio+(SPH-DA01)
If you navigate to Pioneer's website and go to the AppRadio page it shows up the first generation AppRadio as SPH-DA02. The page for this model number doesn't have the firmware links. The SPH-DA01 model page, which I could only get to by changing the URL manually, has the firmware links. According to Pioneer both the model numbers refer to the same first generation AppRadio, nothing's different. I have no idea why two different model numbers are used.
The firmware links, nonetheless, are broken. Clicking on them gives a 404 error and brings up a page that looks like this:
The firmware files are probably being uploaded so I'm guessing the links should be active anytime soon. Keep checking back for more details.
