Customer Question

I have a Pioneer Premier AVEC- F90BT touch screen deck in a truck I recently purchased. I couldn't get it to sync to my apple 6 plus phone. Took it to a music store and first was told I have to install new firmware and just to get a second opinion went to a different store where I was told that the deck is pretty much obsolete and it won't ever sync w/ my phone cause it's outdated, and a new deck is needed.

If firmware is needed how do I do it. The deck act as if it doesn't want to go to main menu. The gentleman at the stereo store also told me Premier is no longer in business and I couldn't get help with this issue.
