After reading the posts on this forum and visiting the Pioneer website, the best solution would be to replace the pioneer avh-2558 with another Pioneer unit. It would be plug and play. There are comparable units for a reasonable price on EBay. The back-up camera, antennae would all connect.
I mention this because I was surprised how many Scion owners replaced the factory unit with an aftermarket unit (usually Pioneer). Before buying my I/M, I shopped for a used XD. But I got the I/M because I had driven the Auris in Europe and really liked it.
Good luck with whatever solution you choose.

|Aprime||I'm going to have to partially retract myself but it doesn't change that there's no inter compatibility between the units. I was reading the software license and yeaaaaaa, it's running on a Linux base. I doubt anyone's willing to invest any time hacking through the system the way they have on Mazdas, though (different units running somewhat similar software throughout the entire Toyota lineup as opposed to 100% the same throughout for Mazda).|

The update you're trying to flash is for a Mazda 2... I mean Scion iA infotainment system. The files used may be in a completely different file format than what the Scion Pioneer Headunit needs to read. For instance just doing a little looking around; other Mazda models update using just one *.up file where as other Pioneer Headunits update using 6 different files *.txt, *.idx, *.inf, *.mdt,*.udt,*.mdx

Ya, but I don't try and install Apple software onto my Android phone. The headunits you are discussing are totally different.
If we are missing something, then perhaps you did not explain well what you are trying to do.
