Clarion NX604 and FX503
Clarion recommends that Clarion Smart Access users with a NX604 or FX503 to research compatibility before upgrading to iOS 8.
There is a problem displaying the screen. The screen may appear slightly smaller than expected and not fill the entire display image, after updating to the new iOS 8.0. It causes minor misalignment of the touch points and application icons on the screen. Clarion reported that it is working with Apple for a solution.
We tried to contact Clarion and they were closed for the day to find out if the same problems occur with iPhone 6/6+. We called a local dealer who suggested that buyers of in-car infotainment systems with iPhone 6/6+ wait until all the bugs are out of the systems.

Owners of the NX603/604 and FX503 using the Smart Access App 2.0 or older with iPhone 4S/5/5c/5S that updated to iOS 8 may shut down unexpectedly or be unstable. Clarion suggests users download and upgrade to Smart Access 2.1.0 or newer before updating to iOS 8.
Clarion stated that it carefully tests connected products whenever smartphone manufacturers release a new phone or a new operating system version. With iOS 8.0, Clarion’s preliminary tests indicated some compatibility issues with Clarion models that take advantage of our Smart Access connectivity platform.
