Currently Being ModeratedFeb 3, 2010 1:17 AM (in response to h4Him)I am sorry to say that I think the problem does not come from 3.1.2 firmware but from iphone itself.
My brother's iphone3GS (week30-40 2009) upgraded to 3.1.2fw connects to my car bluetooth (Pioneer DEH7050) flawlessly, and it produce clear calling sound. However my 1st iphone3GS (week45) with 3.1.2fw and new modem firmware had that garbled sound like yours. Furthermore my 2nd iphone3GS, swapped one, still has the problem.
DOES THIS PROBLEM COME FROM INCONSISTENCY of PRODUCTION OR LOWER-GRADE HARDWARE?Macbook Pro, iPhone OS 3.1.2
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 3, 2010 8:28 AM (in response to Wit M.)Does anyone know of a similar car stereo to the Pioneer FH-P800BT that works well with iPhone (bluetooth) and integrates well with ipod functions (preferably double din) for about the same price?Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 4, 2010 5:10 AM (in response to h4Him)I have this problem as well. Immediately upon going to 3.1.1 - fortunately I went into the store and swapped out my phone for one with 3.0. Too scared to upgrade the firmware on the phone until this is resolved.
Wanted to add a post as the more the merrier - maybe someone will resolve this.
Funny, I got the same garble issue with a set of vModa headphones when I first got the 3GS - headphones were fine on 1st gen phone and 3G - invested in new headphones for 3GS. Leads me to believe it is in the phone.iPhone, iPhone OS 3.0
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 4, 2010 12:52 PM (in response to RitterBoy)Is this only happening with the 3GS, or is it happening with the 3G as well?MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 15, 2010 9:35 PM (in response to h4Him)Still searching and searching for a resolution to this problem. As others have stated, bluetooth is simply unusable (for phone calls, at least).
I've even tried to locate a phone with 3.0.1 with little luck. You can find them on ebay for about $899, and they want an extra $200 for a phone with 3.0.1.
A few things that might be helpful:
-Has anyone tried connecting multiple phones to these Pioneer head units and NOT had the problem with firmware 3.1.x or greater?
-Does anyone have a Pioneer support contact they can share?
-If your phone doesn't work, I think it would be very reasonable to go on to amazon and post a review indicating that your head unit is not compatible with the 3GS - I did.
Any other ideas? The iphone hacking scene has made it very hard to find phones with older firmware, even for very legitimate reasons!MacBook Pro 2.8Ghz, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 17, 2010 4:10 AM (in response to intrasound)Hi,
I have the sameproblem with my iphone 3GS and DEH-P700BT.
Iphone version 3.1.3

The Iphone 3GS has Bluetooth 2.1
The Iphone 3G has Bluetooth 2.0

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 17, 2010 4:33 AM (in response to jdungen)Not including the Bluetooth iPhone issue, how is the Pioneer Premier FH-P800BT as a stereo with iPhone integration? My portable GPS unit has pretty good bluetooth integration, so I don't need the stereo to do Bluetooth. What I really want is something with good iPhone integration. I want to be able to control the iPhone from the head unit or from the phone.Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 17, 2010 6:56 AM (in response to jdungen)Hi There,
I have got a response from a Benelux Pioneer support department, and they are simply telling me that "Apple changed a great part of the bluetooth stack and the DEH-P700BT is not compatible anymore" !!
My Radio is not even 1 year old.
ps. posted a note to apple Iphone feedback

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 17, 2010 6:35 PM (in response to jdungen)Uh oh. That is what I feared - no solution going forward. The question is why aren't these Pioneer models compatible? I have a single-din PT610 in my wife's car that works with her 3.1.3 GS just fine.
If someone has a 3GS that works with these pioneer models, can you post the first two letters/numbers of your s/n?MacBook Pro 2.6Ghz, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 17, 2010 11:45 PM (in response to intrasound)The 610 has a parrot carkit inside, the 7000 and the 700 series is older and has pioneer carkit technology.
Apparently pioneer is not going forward with his own carkit technology.

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 18, 2010 7:48 AM (in response to jdungen)Ok, what about the FH-P8000BT? As that's what I have and am having this bluetooth problem.MacBook Pro 2.4Ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 18, 2010 12:11 PM (in response to intrasound)Has it parrot technology inside?
It should be mentioned in the specs, if not and there is no update on the pioneer website, nobody can help you i think.
Today i bought an alpine with parrot inside, I'm finished with pioneer's super support!

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 18, 2010 1:55 PM (in response to jdungen)So, does the Alpine you bought work with Bluetooth and iPhone? Will it let you work the iPhone iPod features fro the head unit and from the iPhone? Which one is it?
Looking around, it looks like the 800BT has parrot but 8000BT might not.
Just want a freakin' stereo that works!!MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
