Pioneer has informed customers it has discovered an incompatibility between iOS 11 and AppRadio Mode on certain in-dash receivers it sells.
If you connect an iPhone or iPod touch that has been updated to iOS 11 and launch AppRadio Mode, you will experience a blank screen or other display malfunction that disables AppRadio Mode, according to the company.
Pioneer said it is working to resolve the issue and will update a notice posted on its website once firmware updates for the receivers are available. For now, the only solution to maintain compatibility is to remain on iOS 10.
AppRadio Mode is Pioneer's own interface for running over 30 compatible smartphone apps, browsing the web, navigating, and listening to music, podcasts, and internet radio through your car's speakers.
Pioneer's list of affected models include many AVH, AVIC, and SPH receivers, some of which double as aftermarket CarPlay systems.

You're not going to stop a large majority of people from making poor decisions while driving, so you might as well put the information they're looking for in a safer place that's easier to access.
all of this **** should be disabled.
[doublepost=1506201767][/doublepost] Completely disagree. It was a rough start at first in iOS 9 but iOS 10 improved on its reliability and in iOS 11 it’s pretty fast and even more solid. I spend most of my driving time in it (as opposed to my Pioneer unit’s native UI).
